Today legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima took a trip to Osaka to visit Platinum Games, where he had a meeting with Game Director Hideki Kamiya and President Tatsuya Minami.
I hope so! Loved that game, in fact I pretty much love anything from Platinum games. They make the best arcade action style games.
Nintendos Metal Gear Rising Wii. U exclusive!
I whole heartily agree with that every thing Platinum touches becomes gaming gold. Can't wait to see Scalebound in action.
And I disagree with that :D I know I'm in the minority but I didn't finish Bayonetta, didn't finish Vanquish and even MGS Rising annoyed me. I'm still hoping for the original concept of MGS Rising but I'm not interested in another hackfest from Platinum. It doesn't deserve the name Metal Gear.
I would say that they're arguably the best at doing gameplay in the industry right now. What they lack in the storytelling department they more than make up with fun and stellar gameplay mechanics.
Yeah it was very fun to play a cyborg ninja that can't even dodge... and the blocking mechanics were horrible to say the least. If there is one developer (other than Nintendo) that knows how to create fun gameplay it's From Software.
Blocking mechnics were awesome. It takes some time and commitment to get used to them but when you do its extremely rewarding. As for not having dodge it was a design choice that I didn't mind and imo wasn't necessary. As for Nintendo and fromSoftware I agree. There are other devs that are great at doing gameplay and that is why I said "arguably". One think is for sure though with games like Bayonetta, Vanquish, MGS revengeance and Anarchy Reigns under PG belt they're up there in terms of producing games with great and fun gameplay.
Definitely. I don't think there's a Platinum game I haven't enjoyed. Still trying to beat challenge 6 on Vanquish... so fun though.
YES PLEASE. Metal Gear Rising was my game of the 7th Generation when I played it on 360, and it became God-tier when I bought it on Steam. It will be there day one with my $60 for Metal Gear Rising 2. Again. YES PLEASE!
People keep disagree but I don't know why? Anyway, I want the MGR sequel in my freakin VEINS. I love MGR, Please make the sequel soon!
People disagree because of fanboyism and what not. My only issue with MGR, as that you really had to learn on your own and get used to no "Dodge Button"...Especially when facing Blade Wolf. Platinum Games has some pretty beast staff, but they do have their hands pretty full atm.
Disagrees are an option it shouldn't be bothering anyone
@Opie between Bayonetta, Korra, and Scalebound, Platinum has a lot of ground to cover as an independent studio. My only wish is to not spread themselves thin like Crytek.
i think it is a collaboration for a MGR 2 for Xbone Kojima+Kamiya+MS ...which it will be lame if it is true ..but whatever it is i dont think Kojima will keep it exclusive to xbone
Not the only one to visit Platinum today. Ken Lobb, Partner creative director at Microsoft Studios, also went.
We most likely know why he is there, Scalebound.
The guy is good at what he does and I'll keep playing whatever he makes. I'm a huge fan of platinum games.my brother just bought a wii u so ill definitly be picking up bayonetta2 and scalebound for xbox one whenever its released. Still own the first bayonetta, vanquish, mgs rising&even viewtiful joe. All great games from kamiya.
I would KILL for a Viewtiful Joe HD collection. That game(s) should of been on XBLA ages ago.
As long as it isn't Cross-Gen.
Fix camera angels!
Ill take that, or a Zone of Enders by Platinum!
.Platinum games is getting some work, everyone wants them to develop a game.
PLEASE! I absolutely LOVED Rising!
terrible game no thanks
Metal Gear Rising was insane. The gameplay was great, the bosses were awesome, and the soundtrack was absolutely amazing. I'd love a new MGR. I'd only hope it would be more ridiculous than the first.
I thought it was quite mediocre, the game play wasn't great, the environments didn't seem to be created for the move sets, the bosses were alright, nothing spectacular or amazing, predictable really, and the soundtrack was terrible, nothing stuck with me.. sounded like a crappy rock band that never made Kerrang magazine status. The slicing feature was cool, but I'd rent it if I had the knowledge and experience I have now, £40? no way, up the brutality and combat and I'll be happy for a rental. (edit: typo fixes)
Your opinion I guess. I found the game truly epic. I just feel it stands out from a lot of other games. "a crappy rock band that never made Kerrang magazine status" Not gonna lie, I lol'd at that. I see what you mean, but I don't know, I just really love it because it breaks away from the typical kind of score that a lot of other games have. I will however agree that the level design was nothing special, but you have to admit the opening of running down a breaking clock tower to slice a metal gear rex in half was awesome!
Why are Konami and Kojima Productions wasting money on a B+ Developer. Rising was mid core. Instead of Konami wasting money on a mid core sequel, they should use that money to try and remake MGS for the PS4.
Yeah... no. I want new games not a remake of a game that not only has a remake but is more than playable today. Like seriously I played that game for the first time like 2 years ago and it is easily one of my fav games of all time.
If anything, they need to remake the original Metal Gear from MSX, and Solid Snake. I could see them announcing that as a final surprise with MGSV. Those two games take place after MGSV, and would probably be pretty easy to roll right in.
Now lilmetal, that is something I am up for because no matter how hard I try I can not enjoy the original MG games
@ LAWSON72 & lilmetal How about neither, try a prequel featuring The Boss and her Cobra unit, learning about the legendary soldier first hand would be incredible, I'm not certain I want Kojima to wear Big Boss thin.. he has a thing for over using him.
I find it definitely funny that since Platinum Games is working on Xbox One and Wii U exclusive now they've suddenly become terrible for some :D
Well to be fair that shit have been going on since Bayonetta 1 . People lacking taste is nothing new here
Even though I was sad about that, I still don't care. With P* working with Konami, I know whatever game comes out of it will be non exclusive. I want a Platinum game in my PS4!
I've been saying it since Bayonetta. It isn't just because they make some exclusives ( they have since madhouse or whatever it was called. Many people legitimately do not like their games, and dismissing it as some form of fanboyism is childish.
Definitely wouldn't mind a sequel to Metal Gear Rising.
Platinum Games, make a kickass action title. Hell even make another MGR if you want. I'll give it a try..But PLEASE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! Keep Kojima & whoever wrote the last title away from the story. I could have used more slashing action & less Monsoon giving me pseudo intellectual Bollocks written by a 14 year old.
Metal Gear Rising 2 would be awesome. Hope it has much more longer story mode and better camera system.
Platinum sure have been busy!
Yes please! MGR is one of my favorite games of all time!
Would be awesome a game with Gray Fox.
How are they even going to top that final Boss lol?
Didn't Kojima say that MGS5 would be his final game?
mgr2 has already been confirmed by several sources, and the survey mentioned it too. im definitely getting rising 2. i love the world of metal gear! one of my favorite franchises!
hope is ZOE
