Kojima Talks PS4: Excited About Interaction

Posted on February 28, 2013 by Jason Bassett

Hideo Kojima is more excited about interaction than hardware it seems. In a recent interview with IGN, Kojima states that he is more excited in the social and long ranged feature sets of the Playstation 4 saying:

I can say that with every new generation of hardware the capabilities of the hardware increases. But up to this point it’s always been very much of a vertical evolution – of course, you expect things like visual fidelity, audio, frame rate. New features such as 3D capability, etc, etc. These things are a given. They come with the new hardware.”

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance | Review

Posted on February 26, 2013 by Jason Bassett

Version tested: Xbox 360

Fast is a good adjective to describe Raiden. Lightning-quick is another good one. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a very fast and highly violent video game–very violent. It’s possible that one could become nauseous at the violence in this game. That’s on the surface of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Deep within the core of Rising lies a very awesome and very challenging video game that will give you a deeper understanding of how Platinum Games and Kojima Productions have taken a project that was once almost dead and buried and turned it into one of the must have titles this year.Read More

Do you want an early look at some of the badass weapons that can be unlocked in Metal Gear Rising Revenageance? Of course you do! Konami’s latest trailer gives up the goods.

The bosses in the Metal Gear franchise have always had access to insane weaponry. Whether it is Sniper Wolf’s rifle or Vulcan Raven’s gatling gun or Crying Wolf’s railgun, there have always been some awesome weapons of mass destruction at our disposal.

We already knew about the devastating polearm, as we unlocked it at the end of our one hour demo of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, last month. But did you know about the Pincer Blades or Tactical Sais? Each of these weapons can be upgraded and expanded upon using an in-game currency, as we already have detailed.

Check out the new trailer after the jump and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel where will be adding new trailers regularly.Read More


Kojima: Metal Gear Rising Originally Starred Grey Fox

Posted on January 21, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance once was set to star the original cyborg ninja, Grey Fox (Aka. Frank Jager), according to series creator Hideo Kojima. Speaking with IGN he states the original idea was shot down in favor of newly augmented bad ass Raiden after considering feedback given to him by staff at Kojima Studios. He felt that passing on some of the responsibility regarding the direction of the series to younger designers was key to its continued success.

“It was my staff in Kojima Productions that insisted on Raiden, and I respected their idea … In my personal opinion, I wanted to go for Frank Jaegar or Gray Fox. But if we had gone with that, I would have had to write the script and then be really committed to creating the game.”

Konami is set to launch Metal Gear Rising Revengeance on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Feb 19th in North America.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Achievements Revealed

Posted on December 7, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Metal Gear Rising

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance got a whole slew of updates over the last 24 hours. Konami released the full achievement list for the game over at Xbox 360 achievements. If you’re going to be slicing and dicing along Raiden then you’ll want to know when you hear that sweet “unlock sound effect” right?

There is your fair share of achievements that everyone who plays through the game will unlock, like an achievement for beating each chapter (called files). The harder achievements like beating each of the game’s files with an S rank on the hardest difficulty will of course be reserved for the hardest of the hard core among us. I’m also going to be aiming for the “listen to all codec conversations” achievements because those range from interesting (see snakes’ interactions with Octacon), to moan worthy (I’m looking at you MGS2’s Raiden and Rose) or just plain W.T.F (the finale of MGS2).
