Huh... not so sure about this one. Looked cool from what I saw in the past but the quality of this video just made it look really out-dated.

Posted by courage_wolf

Well that escalated incredibly fast.

When does this take place in the fiction? Because this completely goes against Raiden's character at the end of MGS4.

Which is fine because MGS4 went against his and Snake's character anyway.

I maintain that this looks like total garbage; my opinion has been none swayed.

Looks dope.

I have bad news for you then, you're no one of importance and one cares about your opinion =\

I know nothing about the Metal Gear lore but this looks amazing.

The blandness of the graphics offends me, but slicing up stuff looks hella rad.

We'll see.

Posted by DelroyLindo

I want this to be good because Vanquish was one of the best action games in recent memory. But the look of this game....it's just so bland and grey and lifeless. Hopefully the game plays well though.

The more I see this, the more I think this as the potential to be simply awesome.

Hey! I love Jesse Pinkman's voice!

Posted by Orange_Pork

Are there two Raidens or did he Hulk Out and get a new VA when he went red?

Posted by Anupsis

I dislike his utter glee when killing people, I know that he was leaning more in that direction in 4 but have always found it odd that the most "pure good" character has had such a huge swing in the opposite direction. Still really like his character and can't wait for the game but its always felt weird to me.

@Orange_Pork: I was thinking the same thing. At first I thought the initial monologue was from another character.

Now, I just hope the game has an option for Japanese dialogue.

EDIT: After some more watching, I think he may have DID, which would be an interesting take on the character. Or the voice acting is just that bad...

When did raiden turn into a blood thirsty, nutso cyborg?

Posted by MindChamber

Lol Raiden sounds like Starscream.

The fact that this Metal Gear game starts with a goofy police car chase, has moved this up my stupid games I must buy ladder. If he was buckled in, It wouldve been automatic pre-order

Posted by SensuousLettuce

Looks. Awful.

Can't. Wait.

This is way more Platinum than Kojima. I'm sort of glad they took it into their own, because the combat is probably better for it, but I don't know what's going on at all.

Oh, wait, proper Metal Gear game.

It's not that bad all the time.

Note the intro & outro are completly different.

I'm guessing this is just his "Jack the Ripper" persona.

Posted by Crushed

Some of these comments remind me of when Vanquish trailers got posted here and the comment section filled up with "LOOKS AWFUL SORRY YOU CAN'T MAKE GOOD GAMES JAPAN" over and over again

Edited by tcsajax

I just don't know...I played the demo and liked it, but every time I watch videos for the game there seems to be something about cutting people apart that rubs me the wrong name. Not to mention the voice for Raiden is horrible.

Is it just me or does this game seem to embody all of the worst parts of the Dark Age of Comics in a video game form?

Well, I guess thats not really fair. Just realized that there might be some kind of personality change mechanic at work here. Still, really don't like that voice though.

Posted by Fenriff

@brokenpilot: Batons, the deadliest of forces.

Posted by tcsajax

@brokenpilot: Yeah, that seemed odd to me too. You would think that "Deadly Force" would have involved a lot more shooting and maybe more of those anti-tank rockets they used on the car.

Posted by morrelloman

Looks dope. Platinum games specializes in crazy Japanese shit. I'm in.

I want to know why after getting his body sewn back together, he then had it all hacked apart again? I would also rather have Platinum's explanation for this over Kojima's. Actually, I just wish this was set int he Vanquish universe and had nothing to do with the bloated, nonsensical, ret-conning mess that is the Metal Gear universe

Posted by KaneRobot

This does not look particularly fun, but I would enjoy seeing the vice president's reaction to this trailer.

Posted by TheFantasticFillip

The combat in this looks excellent. Platinum has proven they know combat with Bayonetta, Vanquish, and their work as Clover studios and a dev team under Capcom.

Also, I don't understand some people's negative reaction towards the cutting mechanic. It isn't like the whole combat is the cutting, or that you even need it to kill anyone. It's an optional finisher, kind of like Bayonetta's punish moves, and you can actually not use it the whole game if you want to; the health items from enemies drop onto the ground as well. Not to mention, there are various other weapons outside of the HF Blade that likely won't even have that mechanic, though I am assuming a bit here. All I know is there are non-HF blade weapons, and I can't imagine a whip-like thing cutting someone like that.

The story is up in the air though. I don't like Quinton's "Jack the Ripper" voice all that much. Hideo isn't writing this game, instead a team of people that have worked under him at Kojipro during the Metal Gear Solid days are handling it. They did Portable Ops as well, though that had a different lead writer. Portable Ops' story was pretty good, so hopefully they don't drop the ball here.

If we have to lose story for amazing gameplay and Japanese insanity, then that's something I'm willing to give up I guess. We always Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain/MGS5 just around the corner if they drop the ball here.

As for the guns/batons thing, in the MGS universe ninjas can block bullets with their swords. Also, I'd assume those 9mm would be pretty useless against Raiden's armor. I'd venture to say those batons are lethal as well. It would have been less dumb if they all pulled out swords though.

...wait. Jack the Ripper? What?

You don't remember MGS2? That's part of Raiden's canon.

Posted by DS23

Doesn't this series usually have a bit of an anti-violence slant to it? This seems like a bit of a sellout on Kojima's part.

Posted by avantegardener

This looks magnificently dumb, I'm looking forward to it.

Posted by Treygdor

"Deadly force is authorized"

Puts away gun and pulls out a stun baton.

Posted by Veotax

@Treygdor: He's a Metal Gear Cyborg Ninja, they know he'd just deflect the bullets with his sword.

Posted by MutieLover

@mlarrabee: not to be an ass, but have you not seen the Borg on Star Trek :Next Gen? Or 7 of 9 from Voyager?

Posted by Rahxephon91
@DS23: Seeing as how characters have died pretty terribly before, I'm going to go with no.
Edited by Sparky245

This silly excuse for gameplay reminded me of something...

And that voice at the end jogged my memory a little:

Posted by allenibrahim

@Sparky245: Oh man, I'd never seen that until just now. Thank you so much...made my day.

Wut.

I thought the EXACT same thing.

"Gotta club that robot to death, boys!"

At that point, it became personal.

They missed SUCH an opportunity in calling those enemies "Cyborg Police" when they could have gone for "RoboCops"

CNET LOL.

You know, normally I cannot stand Raiden, but they have done something interesting, started by Kojima in MGS2. On one level Raiden is(was) just a young adult, stumbling over a love affair and fear of bad cooking. It's intimated he has rather feminine characteristics. MGS4 didn't really change much of that. Raiden leaking all that white stuff, and that obvious shared body impale with no other than Vamp.

He is a true sociopath, and has been further augmented to the extreme for that exact purpose. He has been killing since before he was a teen, probably starting with the last soldier who raped him. He is ugly to look at, listen to, and he is in definitely an ugly state of mind. Seems the atavistic killer side of him won.

I won't be playing this game anyways,. But in a way I do not consider healthy, I am truly fascinated where they are going with this.. Raiden ain't fooling around. He is going down the biggest lit street to the biggest town to bleed out the biggest...whatever. Reminds me of Alice Cooper's 'Killer'. That little ditttie I remember capping off Halo of Flies.

BTW, that one poster was right, he'd 'deflect' bullets with his sword, and shows him actually doing that with a rocket. I was amused when he cuts one of the Gears shields he actually slices again the part he already lopped off, it's strictly effect. But maybe that is just the point. The storyline might interest me, it may be complicated and have an intent. I'm just not a hack and slasher. I'd rather read how Raiden's trip goes if there was any purpose besides he will never get cavities in his lower jaw teeth.

@amishmonster said:

So Raiden's a cop-killing sociopath with a different voice actor now?

No that is Quinton Flynn, i'm guessing that's his psychopath voice because he doesnt sound like that in all the trailers.

I was waiting for him to say "I'm the GOD DAMNED BATMAN"
