You are staring at an excellent video game website featuring an article about Mafia 3. It is cold, or possibly warm. Your inventory is empty. There are no exits.

Look around.

I don’t understand that.

Look at website.

The website features an article about Mafia 3, which releases in October for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Look at article.

There are many articles.

Look at article about Mafia 3 you smug git.

I don’t understand “you smug git”, but you look at the article about Mafia 3. The article contains two videos.

Look at video.

Which video do you want to look at?

What the heck, you haven’t told me what the difference is.

I don’t understand “What the heck, you haven’t told me what the difference is”.

Look at videoS?

One of the videos is about Vito Scaletta. The other video is about New Bordeaux.

Look at video about Vito Scaletta.

He’s seen it all, rising through the mob ranks. Sent down to New Bordeaux by the commission from Empire Bay, he’s a man shaken by his past. He’s a man bound by loyalty even as he’s pushed to the brink. What will finally make him rise up against Italian Mafia he’s served for so long? Lincoln Clay – and revenge.

The video ends.

Look at video about New Bordeu.

I don’t understand “New Bordeu”.

Look at video about New Bordeu New Bordeak New Bordeaux.

In 1971, the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence interviewed John Donovan, CIA handler for Lincoln Clay during his prolonged stint in Vietnam. The Donovan tapes pull back the veil on the seedy underbelly of crime and corruption that plagued the sprawling city under the control of the Italian Mafia. In the first of six tapes, Donovan explains what lay beneath each of the New Bordeaux’s ten distinct districts.

The video ends.

Having watched both videos you are filled with a sense of satisfaction at having participated in informative marketing.
