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.

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

Yup, this is way better than the NA commercial. It gets straight to the point.
Clover904  +   431d 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.

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.
zerocrossing  +   431d ago
Yeah! Actually gameplay in video game ads should be bloody mandatory IMO.
black911  +   431d ago
Makes me thinks of Fox Kids on Saturday Morning with Cereal Commercials. I miss the 90's!!!!!
It's crap just like the game.
iMaim  +   431d ago
Your game isn't any better.
The Rock Bottom  +   431d ago
hmmm....(glares at username...)uhnnn...(sees Donte pic...)Sir. Your comment isn't edgy enough.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   431d ago
lmao, look at fake dante trying to call other games crap when his game wasnt even that good to begin with.
PirateThom  +   431d ago
I really like the ad, it's kind of like those 90s game ads where there was some sort of vague allusion to the concept of the game and this guy just had bad stuff happen to him and got mad.

Let 'er rip!
sdozzo  +   431d ago
Footage. Whole commercial should be gameplay.
TheKayle  +   431d ago
is a shit...bah!
Trago1337  +   431d ago
Reminds me of that Super Mario "Got Milk" Commercial for some reason lol.
fsfsxii  +   431d ago
I think that they pointed out the times when you're frustrated, turn into a cyborg, and cut shit
RyuX19  +   431d ago
I find it funny that a lot of people didn't get that lol. Having a bad day? Cut stuff up in Rising and release that pent up stress.
