Namco Bandai dropped this video of Noby Noby Boy onto Youtube yesterday.

  


I still don't know what the hell is going on here. All I know is that the game is out next week and I'm going to exchange some of my hard-earned American dollars for a chance to figure out what it all means.

The more I see of this game the less I want to play it.  I don't understand whats the point!?!?
I feel like whats-his-face over at Namco Bandai just feels the need to top Katamari.  Not in intuitive game play but sheer craziness.  This looks like a glorified tech demo to me.
ARGGGGG

Looks inspirational.

I understand. It's a Cold War parable.

It's good to see someone finally utilizing the Cell processor to it's fullest. Those cars are so realistic.

I laughed watching this video. I've laughed at quite a few clips of this game. I  think it was Nick Suttner that I heard describe it less like a game and more like a tech demo or playground. Whatever the case may be, my laughter is a good sign, because I have awesome taste.

MAJOR, MAJOR WTF.

I watched blankly, then laughed, then linked it to a bunch of people. I guess the video worked.

This looks even better than Mario 128! Seriously though, growing up on Monty Python, surreal stuff like this makes me laugh :3

Maybe it makes sense if you're high

I'm looking forward to this.  Hopefully it will be as bizzarely awesome of an experience as the first time I played Katamari Damacy.

Awesome!! I think this will end up being the best $5 I'll ever spend lol.

I think their marketing attempt is to confuse the market as much as possible in hopes of luring them into purchasing the title out of curiosity.

Either I'm drunk, or Noby Noby Boy is designed to make you feel that way.

#25 Posted by Zuul (313 posts) -

WTF? ^^

#26 Posted by Diamond (8634 posts) -

I think the whole point of the game is going to be trying to figure out wtf is going on, but in a good way.

Japan scares me sometimes.

#28 Posted by HatKing (5886 posts) -

I think I got it.  I think the object is to get untangled.  Look at it, it appears the whole time he is trying to get him self off of that spinning object.  The character makes some disapproving sounds when he becomes more tangled to support my theory.  Again I'm sure this game will be a novel concept that will be fun to play for a bit, and a good laugh when your hosting a party and everybody is drunk, but I'm sure all that will ware off quickly and you'll have a poor looking simple puzzle game.  Just like Katamari.

There is no coherent explanation for what I just watched. It defies the English language.

I want to buy this NOW.

In the 1up features before everyone got eviscerated, they talked about how the director only wanted to make a "toy" and not really a "game" with an end goal, but a social goal. Basically you make him as big as possible an add the length to the total tally on the server and everyone tries to make it to the moon and beyond in total length.

But I have no fucking clue what this video is about.

#33 Posted by clarke0 (1077 posts) -

Unintelligible footage of PSN games for me is a religion, and Noby Noby Boy is the s***.

I don't know what the hell it is, but there's an empty hole in my life that its appealing to.

However trendy you want to be buying weird, playing this game for any sustainable amount of time may prove to be far more difficult than saying you will. Unless there is some genius mechanic behind it all, but really, how often is that the case?
