Lol its like a 90s videogame commercial

Number-Nine1959d ago

i was thinking the same exact thing

I dont get it o_O

What does toast and shaving have to do with Raiden?

Was this how Raiden turned into a Cyborg and got his power?

Edit @ below - Yeah it was not a bad ad just did not make any sense to me.

I agree with the gameplay and that should be a standard for all video game commercial.

I loved the Kevin Butler ads but the amount of time they focus on KB and did not show much or any game play was annoying.

Or the Halo 4 ad that only showed live action and CGI

It's not a bad ad by any means, but I get where you're coming from.

I guess it's because marketers haven't really figured out how to translate ads for games into a form that makes sense and will compel most of us to buy the product, not that most of us need an ad to convince us to buy a game we probably know we'll be getting months in advance anyway.

But at least this one had actual game play.

Toast has nothing to do with this game (except for the fact that it will flop and essentially "be toast"). I think the point of the commercial is that the guy is doing random things and it doesn't fit with the tone of the game much like how the game is a mediocre hack & slash and doesn't fit having Metal Gear slapped on it when it's not a Metal Gear game at all.

Hahahahaha!!!!!! Oh man, you're still going?

Advertising is about capturing peoples attention, which is probably what this commercial will accomplish.

Here's the EU commercial.

I think i know which one i like better.

r211958d ago

Yup, this is way better than the NA commercial. It gets straight to the point.

Clover9041958d ago (Edited 1958d ago )

Are you f'n kidding me! Why would they not just use the EU commercial. The NA ad is commercial suicide. The tv spot is completely retro, but there isn't anything retro about Metal Gear Rising. It makes zero sense. It's just terrible. I can't imagine it's going to attract a lot of people.

nukeitall1958d ago

That is a way better ad, but man does it have to be so cheesy?

When are games going to rise above cheesyness? WHEN?

That is how you do a video game commercial. Show actual gameplay.

zerocrossing1959d ago

Yeah! Actually gameplay in video game ads should be bloody mandatory IMO.
