And Army of Two has just lost my interest

Boi on the left... B.o.b on the right

EA sent me an email this morning to announce that the Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel demo is now available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and with that announcement they dropped this brand new video.

The video features two American rappers who go by the names Big Boi (real name Antwan) and B.O.B (Bobby Ray)… seriously I couldn’t make up better names to mock them with so this is really nice of them.

The video shows how these two generic American rappers get notified that two of their women have been kidnapped and they decide to take matters into their own hands by rescuing them while signing the official song for Army of Two.

I’m actually a fan of a lot of rap music but this really just doesn’t do it for me and these two are not the kick-ass warriors that I want to pretend to be when playing Army of Two. EA obviously didn’t think so either as the video switches from live action to in game footage where the characters swap from overweight and skinny black guys to muscular white guys in one swift movement.

It makes me cringe… and they were doing so well in not screwing up the marketing on this one… until now.

I’m also sure our local feminists are going to love the weak females in the video who have no other use than being eye candy.
