Default Two Worlds - Trailer @ Joystiq

July 2nd, 2007, 10:57
Joystiq has a (hopefully new) trailer for Two Worlds. It focuses on combat but they took some mirth from the fact that the trailer claims Two Worlds is "the most epic RPG of all time". Awesome.
More information.

It *appears* Justin mcElroy's title says —> "Two Worlds is (apparently) the most epic RPG ever"

So indeed, depending how you look at it "apparently" is the 'adjuster' and quite rightly could also be inversely applied, eg: "apparently not"

It doesn't come from McElroy - the trailer says "The Most Epic RPG Ever". It's right there in print, towards the end.

It's the trickery of words…

The owner is the most "qualified" in what descriptions are given but they must not exaggerate the truth or deceive the public.
For example… when a well known lager/beer company stated in an original promotion advertisement "the best lager in the world" it was contended and had to be removed and altered, they came up with "probably the best lager in the world" which in my opinion sounded even better and carried more 'clout'

So by saying "the most epic rpg of all time" to me is a failing of the promotion making me think along the lines that dargan mentions….. a popcorn rpg.

"Potentially the most epic rpg of all time that apparently doesn't quite make it" sounds a more realistic and acceptable description to date.
