Canadian Online Gamers = "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a game that was close to never seeing the light of day. Initially titled Metal Gear Solid: Rising, it started out as a title solely developed by Kojima Productions set to take place between the events of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4; however, the young team struggled with the concept of the free blade and the game faced cancellation. Platinum Games, best known for critically acclaimed games such as Bayonetta and Vanquish, was approached to add their action game expertise and they took control of development, making some very drastic changes. “Revengeance” is quite a strange word and it stems from Kojima Productions wanting to get revenge, and some vengeance, on a title that they failed to complete on their own. Their collaboration with Platinum should be commended as this highly anticipated title is something pretty spectacular."
