"Black Raiden"

I just want to know what the heck that even means.
Whitefeather  +   1124d ago
Simple, it's the color of his armor/body.
nrvalleytime  +   1124d ago
It can't be that simple.

Kojima even mentioned that "I can't say much beyond this, but why he's 'Black Raiden' is a secret." That's from his twitter account, and, while he loves to tease his fans, this has to account for something.
-Gespenst-  +   1124d ago
He gets maimed at the start of the game by those Samurai guys, and then he's repaired and given new, superior armour. That's what the devs said.
DecoyOctopus  +   1124d ago
Yep it is that simple, saw a developer commentary and he said that you will have a black cyborg armour
nrvalleytime  +   1124d ago
Yes, but that doesn't imply where "White Raiden" comes in.

He's not known as White Raiden before he was disfigured, so I'm still a bit curious.

Everyone's reactions confirm what I had suspected, but I still have lingering doubts.

They don't call chocolate, brown chocolate.
But, there is a white chocolate alternative.
Why can't there be a black Raiden without a white?
No_Pantaloons  +   1124d ago
it means he's evil.

like evil ryu from street fighter. Its another ploy to give this vanilla character some depth.

this game needs to be made on FOX engine ASAP.
a_bro  +   1124d ago
too late for that. maybe if a sequel happens, it will most likely get the fox engine treatment, most likely left for next gen though
JellyJelly  +   1124d ago
Vanquish looked spectacular from a graphics point of view. 60 fps and with tons of stuff going on at the same time. I have no doubts the game will look good.
yaz288  +   1124d ago
vanquish was 30 fps not 60
SuperLupe  +   1124d ago
If it really was 30fps then I'm pretty surprised because it definately felt like 60fps.
dredgewalker  +   1123d ago
Vanquish looked great and I'm also surprised that it's only 30fps. One of the few games with short gameplay that I enjoyed immensely. I'm still hoping for a sequel to that game. Anyway I got interested in this game when the development was shifted to Platinum Games.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1124d ago
It's way too late to change engines, maybe for the sequel they will use it if their ever is a sequel.
Xperia_ion  +   1124d ago
Platinum knows how to make fun games.
MacDonagh  +   1124d ago
Agreed. Platinum Games knows what it means to make a fun game. Plot wise, it may be a little iffy, but it should be pretty solid.

No pun intended.
Summons75  +   1123d ago
well story was written by KP and they have control of it so plot will be fine! I can't wait for this game
HellzAssassin  +   1124d ago
Which is why I've stated on multiple occasions they're by far my favourite developers this generation. Vanquish & Bayonetta were both unique and incredible games and I'm sure MGR:R will be an absolutely incredible game.
doogiebear  +   1123d ago
They make good beat-em-ups/Hack & Slash...Yeah, but can they make fun Metal gear games...hmmmm
LNDCalling  +   1124d ago
Why do I have a feeling that something in MGS: Ground Zeroes is going to lead people finishing the game to go pick up ‎MGR: Revengeance even if they didn't originally as it didn't appeal to them!

I might well be wrong but its an interesting concept given the appeal of Revengeance doesn't appear to match that of Ground Zeroes, the former not being a usual MG title.
jc48573  +   1124d ago
kojima is known to pull strings sometimes
Parappa  +   1124d ago
Amazed at how bad it is I'm sure. They completely ruined the storyline for the game but luckily it's not canon as anything that takes place after MGS4 wouldn't be canon to begin with until Kojima actually works on a real MGS that takes place after that time.
Slugg3r  +   1124d ago
Actually it was never said that it was not to be canon. They only said that it would be a spin-off.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1124d ago
Oh so you played the game right? You know exactly what happens in the story right? What? You don't? Then STFU.
j-blaze  +   1123d ago
it's developed by 2 amazing devs and it's canon...

MGR: Revengeance > your beloved NT's DmC

Cool Black Raiden. can a fro be optional? (I know its just armor.) Will we get a SSJ version bust out the gold spike hair and blue glowing eyes.(childhood joke)
RyuX19  +   1123d ago
And what a great childhood it was!
avengers1978  +   1124d ago
Can the game come out already... want it now
But then again I want ground zero right now... oh, well
LOL_WUT  +   1124d ago
I have a bad feeling about this game...
ape007  +   1124d ago
me too
Ben_Grimm  +   1124d ago
I have a bad feeling that this game will be freaking AWESOME!
RyuX19  +   1124d ago
Wait is this from the demo? Does this mean the new demo will have a Hard mode? Cause that would be awesome.
Eamon  +   1124d ago
Kojima is impressed. Is that enough to quell the haters now?
ash_divine  +   1124d ago
Come on now. I'm a huge fan of Kojima but, it's not like he's not biased here.

It's not like he'd just come out and say he didn't enjoy it. His very own studio is involved.

Besides, wouldn't it be kind of lame for people to just drop any criticisms all because one person liked it?

He's not infallible. You're allowed to disagree with him.

Well to Kojima old Rising was not very Metal Gear and sucked, Revengeance is very Metal Gear and is apparently amazing.

If it sucked he probably would have cancelled it again and figure the project could never work.

Eamon  +   1123d ago
I didn't mean you can't criticise or disagree.

What I was referring to were the illogical hate this title was getting simply because Raiden was the main character or because Kojima was not heading the development.
TVippy  +   1124d ago
The man should make his priority to learn Enlish.
Sketchy_Galore  +   1124d ago
.....Not sure if intentional.
Sarcasm  +   1123d ago
Doesn't matter if he cant speak Enlish or Japanes, the man makes good games.
J86blum  +   1122d ago
I'm not looking to start a fight but how many people are picking this up inplace of the new DMC? (im personally picking up both.) so im not Bias, and yes I grew up with the Original Demon Hunter. but instead of complain now just making the best of it.
Xklaw  +   1121d ago
I´m definitly picking this one up. When i heard this was to become an hack n slash i was worried. It still doesn´t look as good as the original Rising, but it´s looking better than DMC. The new dmc will just have to wait for a price drop ( if it´s any good ).
