The man is just too awesome

to be honest I want Snake to stay out of Rising

especially when Rising's looking like it's gonna have "literally" the worst story of all the Metal Gear games. Just based on the demo and trailers the cheese is way too strong. It's like watching a crappy shonen anime. -___-

Same here but i love mg rising. Give it a chance guys. The story look alright. I heared the story is made by kojima so you should play it if you are a fan..

Snake shouldn't be in Rising simply because it isn't his story. I mean, maybe a small cameo, kinda like with Raiden's cameo in MGS4 but quite a bit smaller. I couldn't image Snake playing any sort of major role.

Hayter's voice changed so much, he did a great work in MGS1 and 2, ok in MGS3, but he barely showed any emotions in MGS4 i think they should change him now

on topic: i said it before, Snake will appear in MGR or be mentioned somehow!

@ BigStef71

yeah but they probably will find a way to make him live, or if he's really dead "which i hope not" pretty sure Raiden will mention him.. probably Snake will appear in a cutscene as Raiden remembers his past at some point in the game? i mean NO WAY in hell Raiden forgetting Snake!

@ Nyxus

your opinion :)

I think his performance in MGS4 is really great.

I haven't played 4 yet but I know what happens so


Isn't snake supposed to be dead by the time rising happens because of the aging thing he had? Rising is like 5 years after 4 and didn't snake only have a few months left to live?

We are not sure that Snake died. At least, I never saw him die when I completed the game four times O.o
Nyxus  +   1017d ago
Yes, but anything could happen I guess, especially since this is a bit of a side story.

Possibly interesting. I have MGS1, MGS2, MGS Substance (2), MGS 3, MGS 4, MGS Portable Ops, MGS Peace Walker, MGS Digital Graphic Novel,/ MG Acid and MG Acid 2.
I do not think that I want MG Rising - I played the demo, and Mehhhhhhh!!!!!!

I played the demo and it sold me on it.

It's not Metal Gear... the setting makes no sense, even having Sunny looking like she does aged 10 makes me think no one even cares about the setting... but the gameplay is pretty cool.
