This gem has been preordered! PG and Kojima duo is like a fanboys wet dream.

Hope it sells well so we can get a sequel on the next gen consoles.

Really wanna play it. But my PS3 has probably downloaded and installed around 15 gigs today thanks to that update and those sales. Think it needs a rest. Thanks Sony. :P

You should really do that if you have some space again before release. I made a walkthrough from the Z.o.E. Demo before so you could check that one out too. P* games and Kojima P. will deliver with this game for sure.

Someone i know will ignorantly say its a crappy game JUST because its not on wii u even though platinum games is making bayonetta 2 lol.. Then Bayo 2 will be awesome & the best game he ever played, even tho he never played the first & said it sucked before lol.. People never cease to amaze me sometimes..

i just tried the game demo :
Pros :
great great combat system.
requires skill & learning.
Cons:
the environment feels empty.
voice acting and cut-scenes are ok , and has the platinum humor , which doesn't feel right in a MGS series.

with that aside , after playing the game i realized the graphics of this gen definitely needs an upgrade.

Your cons... are kinda meh

First, the environment feels empty? That's because of the engine limititations, just look at the character models who are eating most of the ressources and the effects... The engine fault.

Platinium Humor? Sorry mate but the cut scenes and dialogues and cinematics were created by Kojima Productions, the humor is pure MGS

Voice acting and cut scenes are ok? I Think they're good in overall..

They should have delayed the game for next gen and launch it with Fox Engine, they should have teached Platinium Games the engine and make a exclusivity contract with them

Regardless it's a great game.

Teached? WTF bro
oriononer  +   854d ago
MGR2 will hopefully be on fox engine next gen. Kojima Pro and Platinum are a match made in video game heaven and I can't even imagine how sick a collaboration between the two starting from the beginning would be. Especially considering how much they learned from working with each other already.

This demo is so fun once you really grasp all the crazy stuff you can do.

"First, the environment feels empty? That's because of the engine limititations, just look at the character models who are eating most of the ressources and the effects... The engine fault. "

so we agree it's empty regardless of the reason .

see the scenes always get back to the cup of umm coffee? that's platinum humor to me , i could be wrong .

as for the voice acting that's my opinion.

i never said it's a bad game , heck i'll take this over "DmC" anytime .

and btw if you think my cons are wrong then why bother replying to me , you could have just pressed the disagree button

**with that aside , after playing the game i realized the graphics of this gen definitely needs an upgrade.**

This game has a different take on the action game combat system. There's no traditional block button or even a dodge move. There are parries but the fact that they require a directional input and a button input involves both good timing and skill. Yeah the main selling point is cutting everything but in my opinion parrying is SO FUN.
oriononer  +   854d ago
Dodge is jump + light attack. It is directional too and you can even swat away grenades by just dodging backwards without directional input. It's an offensive dodge as well that hits the enemy you're dodging at the same time if you do it right.

I hear people always saying there is no dodge in this game, and they are right.

There is MEGA DODGE.
AznGaara  +   854d ago
I never knew that. This demo doesn't really tell you anything aside from how to parry. Which it cool cause finding out stuff like that is fun. Thanks though!
oriononer  +   854d ago
No problemo. Look up a little tutorial on youtube or just mess around a lot. For a demo it's really deep. Launchers and dash attacks and flying jet kicks and breakdancedy ninja stuff. I love this game so much already. Once all the secondary boss weapons are added in it's going to be crazy.

I am suprise, I was a bit mad at the direction Kojima Pro had gone,boy was I wrong it was very acceptable. All along I had forgotten how cool it was the first time I saw the Raiden Vs Vamp scene(MGS4), In between all that scene I thought to my self "Imagine if this was playable". Thank god for people like Kojima that listens to what people want.

BLAKHOODe  +   854d ago
I didn't care for it. Reminded me of another game I didn't care for.. Ninja Gaiden. I'll admit, I didn't play much of either game, cause.. well, I didn't care for what I did play. I'll just pass.

Can´t wait to get home, download this demo, and play till my controller melts.

SWEET!

:D

MG is my favorite game series.this just makes me so happy to see it grow from it's NES days to what it is now.for if a game can make you cry(MGS3) that has to be a strong story behind it.raiden has really grown since his MG2 days.this game is like a appetizer before the main course Ground Zero's.
contradictory  +   854d ago
a game can make you cry?
MGS4 ending was seriously the most emotional ending ever. just damn.
Mocat  +   854d ago
I want to get this game for the 360 but the only thing i'm annoyed with is that PS3 has exclusive skins, Why
contradictory  +   854d ago
because why not?
if i would be to guess i'd say it will come to X360
anyways in the end... so don't wet your pants.

I played the demo 3 times. Game is outstanding. The wolf fight was just so much fun.
DevilishSix  +   854d ago
freedom not defined......there is no freedom....aahhhhhh.
Mocat  +   854d ago
I think thats directed at Crapcom
DevilishSix  +   853d ago
During wolf's dying words, the first thing I thought was fans screaming about this not being a Metal Gear proper game in relation to freedom to expand the universe against franchise fan backlash, but your point makes sense as well.

Like it , just taking me time to get reacquainted with a health bar that does not regenerate. Aside from all that it looks like the full game will be a day one buy.
