New Metal Gear Rising Videos - Lots of gameplay, Mistral boss fight and Dwarf Gekko in action

Famitsu and 4Gamer have posted new videos showing more Metal Gear Rising Revengeance gameplay. You can see what controlling Dwarf Gekkos is going to be like, and the Mistral boss fight, and more. Obviously it’s better to avoid watching this footage if you don’t want to get spoiled too much.

I can't wait to get my hands on this game. The demo was awesome once I got used to the parry!

Psychonaut1343d ago

Agree. maybe patch the "cut" system I don't know why buy it felt alittle off to me. I thought it be alot smoother and precise. lol btw why cant the battle data be in the head >.< and not the left hand.

LOGICWINS1343d ago (Edited 1343d ago )

The parry system difficult to get used to. Still haven't beaten the wolf boss. I like the game, but considering Raidens a super cyborg ninja badass, hes not very agile. Dodging is slow, although realistic in a sense. The parry is the easily the thing that most have a problem with. I wish u were able to parry mid combo, would have made the game a lot less frustrating.

With such a hard to master parry system with only a small window for error, it should have been part of the tutorial. I'll keep trying to master it though.

And why is it that I don't always get one of those "blue spines" that provide health when I kill an enemy? At one point I was at 30% health, killed 3 enemies..nothing.

You are able to parry mid combo.

Allsystemgamer1343d ago

When u see that orange flash just light attack+direction and u parry. It's really simple.

Practice with the 3 beginning guys. It's gives u an advanced warnin when to parry and u can do it mid combo aswell.

Yeah, I think the tutorial could have been better as well, but it's just a demo.

I had to go online and search how to do other assassinations and air juggles. I didn't think the parry system was difficult, but you do have to be agressive to get a good rating after a battle.

You can get health from any enemy in the demo, not sure about the boss, though. Instead of using the right analog stick for precision slices during slow motion to hit the red box, I use the square and triangle buttons for flurry attacks. It's much easier to get health that way.

LOGICWINS1343d ago

I'm pretty sure Raiden has to be perfectly still in order to parry.

RyuX191343d ago (Edited 1343d ago )

He doesn't have to be perfectly still. You can parry at any moment. All you have to do is tilt the left stick toward your opponent that is attacking you and press the Square or X button (for Xbox users).

It only works when an enemy is about to attack you so once you get the hang of it parrying attacks will become second nature.

Lord_Sloth1343d ago

I've parried in the middle of several of Raiden's moves. Locking onto the boss helps when fighting him. And in order to get the spines you have to hit the red square just right. Cross-hairs will appear in it when lines up properly.

LOGICWINS1343d ago

Thx alot guys. Much appreciated. Didn't know about assassinations and air juggles. And how do u lock on?

RyuX191343d ago

Press R2 or the Right Bumper to lock-on. It's a toggle so you don't need to hold it.

CarlosX3601341d ago

I felt the same. I love Metal Gear, and I like Metal Gear Rising, but the parry system is a little difficult.

And, secondly, to get that "blue spine" cut in the right place - You need to cut around the heart or spine to get that red detection. It's more of a hit detection problem than it is you.

Same here the only issue that i had with the game was the parry.

@RYUX19

Thanks for the info i had problems with the geckos jumping all over the place.

Williamson1343d ago

I played the demo and I enjoyed it more than the dmc one. I'm probably going to pick this game up, but im hoping i'll be able to understand the story since I never finished or made any progress in any mgs game. I tried out mgs 4 and the hd collection but I just really suck at those games.

TemplarDante1343d ago (Edited 1343d ago )

I reject the new Dante in DmC. If Capcom never brings back our Old Dante, that series is dead to me.
This game will be the new king of hack n' slash. Day 1 buy for me MGR !!

Imagine what Raiden would do to the new alcoholic dependent Dante.

Raiden: "You must be stopped..."

new Dante: "What was that?!?!?!?!?
How about FFFFF**K You!!!!, You WH**E!!!!!!!!"
new Dante would jump into the air screaming like a girl and before you know it...
.., well, isnt it obvious? Raiden would dice junkie Dante into a million pieces. :)

...... This is like sooooo....off topic and over the top, but okay?
