Metal Gear Rising info emerges - stealth, new game plus, collectables

Spanish gaming website MeriStation posted a video about Metal Gear Rising, in which they discuss the game based on an extensive play session and answer questions sent in by viewers. A written translation can be found here. The video is about a month old, but hadn't been translated until yesterday, so for many this will probably be new information. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360)

stealth involved?
thought all action?

They've always said the game game will have a bit of stealth, but the game is mostly an action game overall.
Timesplitter14  +   945d ago
well there was some pseudo-stealth in the demo.

pseudo-pseudo-pseudo stealth

It's stealth in the sense you delay the inevitable hack and slashing for a bit longer.

Stealth to ease the coming battle/

I played the Demo there, I don't get the annoyances, it took me a few mins to get used to but it wasn't that hard, I died 2 times against the Mulitple Gekko's and once against the cocky Ai dog thing. All you gotta do is sprint around like a mad man while fighting the dog, his reinforcements are actually a bonus as they give you health back.

I wish hard mode was unlockable in the Demo(is it??)

Edit-- Timesplitter, I disagree, the blocking system(which also has roll) is fine imo. It means stopping an enemy attack takes effort. Look at people playing through it on Youtube without getting hit ~ That shows there is no problem. It just takes more effort that a game with a dodge system, also you have the sprint ability, where nothing can hit you while you're doing it.

I can see why they did the blocking system too, it's to add the element of Parrying into the sword play. I'm happy it's in anyway I haven't played a Hack and slash in a long time that had to balls to take away such a none skill based mechanic

Something I think is lacking in this game is a dodge system. I mean yeah there's the counter-attack thing but without a dodge system it feels like you don't really have control over the action and you just hit on enemies that come at you until they die or you die.

There is dodging, you press square and X together (PS3 of course) and a direction to dodge and it does a hit simontaneously as well. But yeah there is no blocking / dodging button as seen in other Hack and Slash games, but I love that they are staying a way from that, makes gameplay a little bit more engaging and feels more interesting to me, just a little something different can leave a big impact and impression on a player.

but like you said its "psuedo stealth"

I mean... despite the fact every enemy explodes after raiden kills them, the enemies who haven't seen you won't check out what happened"

I've played the demo 8 times and I always stealth killed one of the geckos in the part before the blade wolf fight, and after it exploded no one looked

However the game is still very fun, and at least they tried to encorporate some stealth, even though its silly when it is performed

I was worried about this game, thinking the story would be mediocre, since platinum is not known for stories, but I was surprised when the lyrics of the blade wolf fight had more depth than any story of the games platinum has published"

Definately day 1 for me

I'm curious about the "dog".
I think it's the idea that was taken out of Vanquish :p

MGR DAY 1. Going to be the best hack n' slash of 2013!
Y_5150  +   945d ago
I personally would go for God of War game coming out this year but I played the demo for MGR.

It was fun! I believe it will be a fantastic hack n slash game.
Ezz2013  +   945d ago
at least ps3 owners get to play both and enjoy both
it's win/win
League_of_Draven  +   945d ago
GoW:A will be the best hack & slash of 2013. If GoW:A didn't come out then that title would go to DmC.
Allsystemgamer  +   945d ago
Dmc is terrible. It's repetitive and just bland
Ezz2013  +   945d ago
i was about to agree but then you said *DMC*
so NO agree from me

@ RE_L_MAYER.What do you mean? It was a war zone.What did you expect? A party going on or something? Of course it would be just have enemies only.And it wasn't empty. It had trees and cars and pillars and a sandy beach and telephone poles etc.I am not exactly sure what you were expecting and what you mean by empty
RTheRebel  +   945d ago
this game will be epic
h kojima and platinum games O_O
landog  +   944d ago
i'm intrigued by this game, but will definately wait for some reviews and the users here on this site before i take the plunge, plus, i want to know what system to buy this for, is it also on pc?

I also wish they had a dodge system. I was expecting it to be more quick but it relies heavily on defensive parrying a lot more than I expected. However, it also brings a very unique identity to the game.

I really enjoy PlatinumGames' offering. Bayonetta, although admittedly wacky in many respects, is still so buttery-smooth in the combat department and one of the funnest games to just play. That's what gaming is about imo.
Allsystemgamer  +   944d ago
There is a dodge. It's A+X or square + x
Erudito87  +   944d ago
okay let me get this straight people b***ed and moaned when raiden was unplayable and lots of cool things happened during the cut scenes and now they made a game that centered around him people are bitching about the lack of stealth? HE'S A CYBER NINJA WITH AN AWESOME SWORD THAT CUTS THROUGH ANYTHING! have fun ffs

In God Hand there was no blocking. just dodging and flipping. that game was and still is years ahead of it's time in terms of controls and being a Over the shoulder 3rd person brawler. It's perfect. I keep telling people, there will never be a game made again with controls as raw as GodHand and Capcom owns it. Someone gotta revive that game's controls.
P.S. the guy who basically produced MGRising produced GodHand. The Director of Resident Evil directed it, that's why it's an over the shoulder 3rd person view styled game like RE4.
P.P.S.- If GodHand came out today, you would have to pay for some of those moves as DLC because they give you so many to create combos.

I wish they'd make either a sequel or hd remake for godhand, there really hasn't been anything like it since
TongkatAli  +   944d ago
100% correct
CDzNutts  +   944d ago
DMC sucks.........says no review on the internet. Bought it today....purely epic.

Moving on though. As far as MGSR goes, the one thing that's crapping on this game for me are the controls.

GOD that camera is atrocious...as are the controls. It sucks because the graphics are BEEEAUUUUUTIFUL!!!! Aaaaand, that's where it ends.
