Metal Gear Solid Rising: Plot Dissected

GB writes: Metal Gear Solid has been a great franchise for over two decades, with Solid Snake not only becoming the main protagonist of the series but also an iconic hero. The last Metal Gear Solid game was a stellar game and tied all loosed ends of the series and gave Solid Snake a deserving farewell. Now at E3 2009 a new Metal Gear Solid game was announced and the real surprise was that Raiden was announced as the main protagonist of the game. Now during that time a number of theories came up, but we have waited for long so that we can analyze deeply on the possible plots for the game. So here it goes:

I have been a metal gear fan for ages but for some unknown reason i am not at all hyped for this game. May be Hideo Kojima is not involved that why!

Assassin Nawabi3338d ago

mgs franchise doesn't belong to xbox...may be thats why

Natsu X FairyTail3338d ago

because it's multiplatform that's why you're not hyped.

N4G king3338d ago (Edited 3338d ago )

wait a min
i smell some Fed up things in here

1- a different universe
2- "but a game on Gray Fox and his code name is Raiden"
now i dont know but this guy seems to know nothing about MGS
gray fox =/= Raiden

gray fox dies in zanzibar before they make him a robot
and that happens before MSG1
that means ( i think ) some where AFTER MGS3 and before MGS1

and we all Know
MG4 is the last in the time chain
its like this
so that makes no sense AT ALL

and he daies again in MGS1

+ snake knows gray fox
in MGS1 he knows him just after he sees him
of coure he'll know if gray fox is Raiden
he'll say something about it some where in the game
but he DONT

"Metal Gear Classic Remake"
again this makes no sense
MGS4 happened after MGS1
and at the first point he says
"Events will take place after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots"

add to that Raiden shows for the first time in MGS2 and thats after MGS1
so there is no riden before MGS2

WTF ???

PlayStation X3338d ago (Edited 3338d ago )

cause your playing as raiden, thats why.
and it'll most probably be a hack n slash more than a stealth game.

im more looking forward to peace walker anyway, even if i do have to use the sh1tty psp controls =/

name3338d ago

Umm no, it wasn't. It was only on ps2.

hay3338d ago (Edited 3338d ago )

@Greywulf: No. MGS2: Substance was on Xbox first. Also Twin Snakes were on GC.

I'm not concerned about Rising at all and am pretty much hyped. I wonder what Kojima's new team can produce.

The Plot:

Raiden receive a letter from some cousin saying he has to go to Liberty City, then he join a group of 4 guys and a like-talking dog and resolve mysterious cases with fake ghosts and monsters, then he is deployed to some unknown city in Africa and face a mysterious parasite called Uroboros virus, at the end fight against Sephiroth and he transform into Super Saiyan 4 to bit him and catch all the 150 Pokemon

WTF!!! lol

1 thing is pretty much is confirmed: MGSR will only be like 5 hours due to the DVD9 limitations. KP is saying that MGSR is going to look better than MGS4 and if that's true, the graphics will take up a HUGE space of the DVD9. Without much space left on the DVD9, there's not going to be much space left for levels and cutscenes.

I dont know, but i seriously think with no offence meant for xbox fans , playstation is where the franchise shud be.

Assassin Nawabi3338d ago

yeah kojima is a traitor :d

ultimolu3338d ago

How could Kojima be a traitor if he isn't involved?
Not hyped for the game but let's see what they can do.

gameseveryday3338d ago

may be it was Konamis decision...and pressurized kojima in to dng so!

Godmars2903338d ago

How about seeing some gameplay since that's what people want.

Christopher_Walken3338d ago

I want to see what the gameplay is going to be.

mal_tez923338d ago

If it's classic MGS stealth gameplay then I'll definitely be getting it. But if they turn it into a hack n' slash buttonmasher, then I'm not touching it with a 20 foot pole.
