Blue Dragon TVCM

Blue Dragon TVCM

Microsoft is starting the marketing campaign for Blue Dragon in Japan with this first TVCM. Nothing really new, but still it's good to see Microsoft is really pushing this game.
Update: Added another TVCM.

I have to see beyond my love for the game and say this is one lousy commercial for such a great game.

Im guessing the neckless is some sort of bomb that was put on her neck by the evil character and she cant remove it. that's why she was running away from him. just my guess ...

Not really, yeah worse then the originals first year but far better then the second and third year. It really plummetd in those two years. Atleast they have a steady sale of 1000 and now 2 weeks of 2000. So it isn't that bad compared to before. But it can be a whole lot better.

And it will be released the 7th of december so not that far away ;).

But more ontopic. Didn't they have commercials of this before ;).

I "learned" some Japanese from anime's this is what i caught:

Him: "Koko, dont be a fool!"
Her: "Let me go" (then something about death)
Him:"no, no."
Her: [His name here]

Or something like that. :\

I know this probably wont be answered cause the Japanese do not really like the 360 or its games but could any Japanese/anyone who knows the language, clear this up?

Why are you transulating this when there is a translated version of this clip in the trailer on the XBL marketplace.
Commented on 2006-10-18 19:28:07
Because it stimulates the body and mind ;)

I was about to ask the same thing... Do we have memories of Goldfishes now or something?

I'm a bit underwhelmed by this and LosT OdyssEY due to the thickness of turn-based in both videos and screenshots... I need my freedom DAMMITT!!

Yeah, they both look good, but I need to see some interesting gameplay videos, moreso from LosT OdySSEY than Blue Dragon..
Commented on 2006-10-18 20:13:18
turn based RPGs are the best Imho, i am sick of the hack and slash of wow/fable style games i want turn based, and been as though these are possibly the only chance i have of turn based RPGs comming to 360, i welcome them with open arms

LMFAO.... just looked at the pics again, LOL fantastic job on clipping them :D
Commented on 2006-10-18 20:20:47
Turn based is extremely good in my opinion. Turn based is a rewards system in my opinion. You do the things necessary for combat you choose the attacks etc and they reward you by giving you really cool stuff to look at.

There are things that can be achieved in a turn based rpg that you just can't do in a real-time rpg and if you manage to do some of the fancy things in a real-time rpg that you are able to do during a turn based rpg I put money on it that when this amazing attack is being performed you wont be the one actually performing the move as the game will takeover. So turn based is sorta cutting out the middleman and simply getting to what we all want to see cool stuff during battle.

There are real-time rpg titles that pull off real-time successfully and make it look very flashy, but when it has that mmo feel to it.. I really dislike it.

I agree, Turn based RPG's are my favorite genre.

Did you guys here the news... the preorders for this in japan are selling out... 10,000 of amazon.jp all sold out preordered... and most of the other sites also sold out of preorders in japan with some sites having up to 1000... thats alot of preorders all sparked from a single game bundled with a core 360... i really really really really really really microsoft is smart and does a similar push with lost odyssey... LO and BD are just gonna rock in japan i think, they need to get local big advertisers to do the marketing campaigns for them and the things will light up over their :)

Her name is Kluke, and she's voiced by Kawasumi Ayako. She also sings the song in the background.

Am I missing something or is there no in-game footage of Blue Dragon about? Seems strange that so many would pre-order without seeing what the game actually looks like.
Can someone link to any? ta
