Lost Odyssey TV Ad

It looks like Microsoft is trying to do actually market Lost Odyssey, at least compared to the almost invisible marketing campaign of the sent to die Blue Dragon. This extended TV ad certainly reminds me in a way of the excellent way they marketed Gears of War, with a song that had little to do with the actual game, but that would everyone easily remembers. I sure still think of GoW's ad when I hear Charles Jules' Mad World. Hopefully this will be the same for Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit if Microsoft does this right.
Update: 720p version online.

Lost Odyssey: Cities trailer

Microsoft released this trailer showing the three main cities of Lost Odyssey. It's in fact nothing more than more or less unrelated cutscenes of the game cut and assembled, without the music. Strange choice.

Lost Odyssey: Cutscene

I've been asked to encode a specific cutscene from Lost Odyssey. I'm not going to describe what happens in that scene, but needless to say there are MAJOR SPOILERS in there, and anyone planning to play that game should definitely not watch this video. For the others, it shows the good and bad points of the game, with a nice directing, good voice acting, and the various pros and also cons of the Unreal Engine 3. Again, MAJOR SPOILERS.
Also important, our reencoding system for streams and mp4/avi is down for the moment. I won't be able to repair it until at best tomorrom afternoon, so you'll have to survive with wmv only until then. Sorry about that.
Update: In the end I had to move the reencoding system to another server, and rewrite most of it. Everything seems to be working as before, and I've even upped the bitrate a bit so the video quality should be a bit better. Let me know if anything seems really different from before, in a bad way of course!

Lost Odyssey: One more video

I'm now at the beginning of the fourth DVD of Lost Odyssey, after a nothing less than excellent third disc. I definitely don't want to show anything of the story, so here is a quick fight from a special mode of the game. Beware though, one of the characters shown there has not really been revealed yet so if you want to keep the experience totally fresh, do not watch this video. Still, this shows the fight menu in english, some more advanced spells and skills than before, and the ring system. More info inside.

Lost Odyssey: First dream

I've received the Asian version of Lost Odyssey tonight, this one is totally in English so I was finally able to capture a video of one of Kaim's dream in an easier to understand language than before. There it is, and it's surprisingly moving.

Lots of Lost Odyssey images

Microsoft and Mistwalker released this big batch of images and artworks of Lost Odyssey. Needless to say it shows a lot of stuff that could be considered as spoilers.

A bit more of Lost Odyssey

I admit it, I'm weak. I had promised not to do another Lost Odyssey video, and yet when I saw these 2 fights I simply had to share them with you guys. The first one in particular is so cute and charming it's almost scary, and the ones who played Blue Dragon will certain recognize these guys. Except for the actual level the video doesn't spoil anything much, so feel free to watch :)

More Lost Odyssey!

Quite a lot of people have contacted us to get more videos of Lost Odyssey, and as promised here they are. The first one available now shows the direct continuation of the previous one, with at least 2 more to come, including the first boss.
Update: First boss fight video added.
Update 2: More exploration, and even a bit of sneaking in this new video. A last video of the game will follow tonight or tomorrow with a very close second boss fight.
Update 5: The final video is back, showing the very close second boss fight, now with sound!

Lost Odyssey is back on Gamersyde

I've finally received my Lost Odyssey copy yesterday (#@$# French post) and quickly went to the point where DjMizuhara's console died so that I could record some new videos. Here is the first one, showing some real gameplay with fights, with of course more to come.

Lost Odyssey images

Microsoft released this new batch of screenshots for Lost Odyssey. And considering how bad some of them look, you've got to wonder what some of PR people were thinking...
Update: Added 9 new images, and better looking ones at that.
