Neat

Edit-Well I did that I guess. Looking forward to the game.

Games gonna be stupid fun, just as I expect DmC to be, can't wait to play both. With Bayonetta 2 and LOS2 on the horizon this is truly a great time for the genre.

I much prefer when he talked like old Raiden for a little bit in the car but yeah that looks suitably ridiculous!

There's something amazingly dumb about cyborg Raiden driving around in a regular car.

So is this game written BY 10-year-olds, or just FOR them? What a bunch of hammy garbage.

Also, police officers, why did you put your guns away?

Man, I can't really imagine Raiden doing anything normally without it looking silly. Paying bills? Watching a baseball game? You think he'd at least, like, wear a coat or something to cover all that up!

@Branthog: You can boil down just about every video game in existence to a "thirteen year old boy's fantasy". If immature turns you off so much, maybe put the controller down and read more classic literature or watch a French film. Refined palates are rarely the target audience of game developers.

Anyway, this looks like fun. I like Platinum Games frantic action style and the crazy Metal Gear universe, so sign me up!

I never got into Metal Gear, but this looks like a thing that Platinum Games definitely made which means I definitely want to play it. I wonder if I'll be able to understand any of the story stuff in it at all.

You wouldn't but he's also not a robot, he's a cyborg, he's only half robot.

Which I freaking love by the way, even if his voice has become completely ridiculous, I'm really excited to see where they end up taking all of this.

Crazy future blood and bleeding robots have been a Kojima thing for decades.

OK. I literally just learned what "cyborg" means. More than twenty years of science-fiction movies, games, and books, and I've never believed "cyborg" to be anything more than a homonym for "android." "Cybernetic organism." It's all coming together...

This game looks fantastic and I can't wait for it to come out. The demo is super fun, but it looks like there'll be way more enemy variety in the full game, and I'm excited to fight new enemies since the two enemy types in the demo are kind of chumps.

I don't think most of the people who have played the older Metal Gear games will be able to understand it.

@Branthog: You're coming off as a total fun-nazi, which begs the question: Why are you playing video games at all?

As for the video, Revengeance continues to look totally rad. However, I would love to slap the person who told Quinton Flynn to impersonate the Bale-Batman voice. Bad idea.

Thought of something. If Ryan was a cyborg (like Jack) he too would drive around in a car just to freak people out.

That's a totally fair point -- there's just something that's particularly more thirteen-year-old-boy-ish about a sword that cuts thousands of times a second for super awesome slo-mo violence or Gears of War roided dudes that look like they're a human Abrams Tank. It somehow makes it come across as a more hollow game when they make such a big deal out of 'OHMYGOD LOOK AT HOW MANY PIECES I CUT THIS DUDE INTO!". That's something that's awesome the first two times in a tech-demo and then becomes instantly dumb.

If it was a half hour of that with Raiden in a twenty hour MGS 5, then that'd be just about the perfect amount.

On the other hand, if the story is as fun as MGS4 and it has crazy long cinematics and other things going for it, there's still a chance I can look past that (and the sort of Bayonetta-ish combat-style which I just don't think I can do anymore) and trudge through.

I just... yeah.... the mechanics look more like a chore than anything else. :/

I definitely see your point that the mechanic could get old over the course of the entire game. I share that opinion with you actually.

But I also love the fact that bodies and the environment react to your sword. That is entirely new to me. As a guy who loves Battlefield and Red Faction partly because of the destructible environments, I look forward to playing something that allows me to do that kind of thing with a sword instead of high explosives.

Let me get this straight. In the future, when trying to apprehend someone that you have at gunpoint, Having the person tell you to arrest them allows the use of deadly force, but that DEADLY FORCE INVOLVES STUN BATONS. I fucking hate japanese video game writing sometimes.

@Branthog: As a die hard fan of MGS since the first Solid on Playstation, let me tell you that I am also way more excited about whatever the hell MGS5 is than Rising here. I'll check out Rising when it drops in price, but the next Metal Gear proper I will preorder and anticipate for months leading up to release.

So hey, no worries if Rising doesn't tickle your fancy. That Phantom Pain trailer is enough for me to know that the next Metal Gear will give us both more of what we like about Metal Gear.

Also, it's pretty cool that you're new to the series and like it as much as you say. That seems like a rare thing, even though MGS4 is top notch. Have you thought about dipping into the past games? It might be tough because they haven't aged particularly well, but you should at least give MGS3 a shot if you haven't already.

I can dig it. Any Metal Gear is good Metal Gear to me. Be it Cold War Stealth, Cyborg Slash-em-up, Kojima or Platinum brand insanity. It's all welcome here.
