"Sneak In"

#1 Posted by Lashe (1251 posts) -

Does this seem like a Raiden action to anyone, as Brad had predicted?

I'm not so sure. 'Sneak In' tagline might suggest a return to the series stealth gameplay, no?

I'm not sure it's a spin-offy as people might have anticipated. What are your thoughts?

Maybe, but they did change Tactical Espionage Action to Lightning Bolt Action. This makes me thing they are stepping up on the Action or Combat front.

I'm definately expecting a DMC God of War style action game from this one.

"Sneak In" was just a clever play off of the 360 slogan: "Jump In". I wouldn't read too much into it.

It means sneak into there HQ and film some really grainy footage of it.

A Raiden "Gaiden" if you will sounds pretty cool. I didn't really want to buy MGS4 again, so this is a good excuse. I am excited now :)

When I saw the name of the forum this is in, I read it as "Metal Gear Solid Racing". That would be mad crazy.

It's obviously an action game. What the hell else would Raiden be doing?

Im guessing its ninja gaiden with raiden.

Yep, I'm guessing it's gonna be a Shinobi, Ninja Gaiden type thing.

Totally kicking myself now haha. Thanks for that one.

DMC and God of War aren't the worst franchises they could be basing this game off of.  Look what it did for Wolverine!

Oh I forgot about the Sneak In part.

Anyway I hate ninja Raiden. He's got to much xtreme baditude and seems like a massive sorry-you-all-hated-Raiden-but-I-fixed-that-by-making-him-a-ninja move. I liked the original Raiden better.
Also this game so reminds me of:

Nono, its just a new Metal Gear except the Xbox is getting Raiden and the PS3 is getting snake. Somewhere a few weeks later you'll be able to buy Snake or Raiden for your console of choice. Yes, Kojima told me all this when we were backstage.

It may not even star Raiden and it's just another Kojima mindfuck. We simply don't know until we see it in action. And even then we can't be sure.

i expect it to play similar to the VR MISSIONs level where you got to play as Gray Fox. There was lots of stealth involved, but you could jump up really high, and slice the shit out of people, it was really badass. So you would use cover, sneak up on dudes, and then stab them. 

If the game plays similar to that, it will be fucking awesome.

Exactly.  I'd expect it to be  hopefully a little more slow and tactical than stuff like DMC, but similar.

PS3 and PC are getting the same "choppy up sword game" too...
