Hideo Kojima made another appearnace at MS' E3 conference to reveal some new footage for Metal Gear Solid: Rising. The game, as he says, is based on the Japanese art of Zan-Datsu, which translates to "Cut and Take."
This isn't a true Metal Gear Solid game. This is Konami trying to appeal to the US. You can even tell Kojima is trying to distant himself from the game. He came out spoke quickly and took off. He obviously did not want to be there.
ya i wasn't impressed either. they need to show way more than that. i mean all we know is that you can cut things. is that the basis for the whole game? cutting?
It just looked like a hack n slash, that's not what MGS is. Also, did anyone else notice how the graphics looked downgraded from MGS4? Quite alot really. Hoping for a real MGS to be unvieled by Sony tomorrow that Kojima is actually making.
It looks like Afro Samurai! Can't complain though. I enjoyed that game.
Yea, it was funny how Kojima was just there for a few seconds. The game itself looks like it'll be a good rental, but that's it. I'd rather buy Peace Walker.
Please buy it. MGS:PW is amazing.
Can't stop playing it. If you already have a PSP there's no excuse.
tactical ? GONE espionnage ? What for ? where is the tactical espionnage action ? Oh wait it's not a kojima game ... it might be a good game ..but it's not a hideo kojima game...
Total suck. Sneaking... nope catering to the xbox action crowd. Not buying this.
Thoughts?? I personally didn't think it was that good. The way Raiden moves is way too slow for a hack n' slash IMO. Look at Bayonetta and GOW3, their fluid and fast...as for Raiden, not really. Maybe we need to see more, but right now it won't appeal to anyone other than diehard MGS fans. "I cant believe people are bashing this game it looks incredible" We aren't bashing the game, its just that ur opinion is different from ours. Is it that difficult to accept? This game will NOT sell on the 360. Not bashing..its just the truth. Peace Walker is probably a better overall game. "That the game is also on PS3!!! TAKE THAT FVCKERS!!!!" Umm so what? PS3 is the only console I own and I'm not buying this crap. Let go of this console war crap. Fighting over two pieces of technology? Yea, ur cool lol
It looked amazing! does it have Kinect and Move support? I can't wait for this game
Day one buy
lol it wont sell good on 360 if its not a space marine shooter.
I cant believe people are bashing this game it looks incredible
You're on N4G man.
CUT CUT CUT CUT !!!! Looked pretty good IMO. But if the story sucks what's the point.
Look good but grapics are too mgs4.
Better than i thought it would look
Yeah, when he completely dismantled that guy midair it was pretty slick.
They better add gun battle or its a no buy
Uh.... its hack n slash... and um... kojima was smiling like lol... Its different.. but will there be online too.. so u can hack n cut others what will u cut.
hey he can slice my watermelon any time =D
Sold!?! Guess I'm just a mindless Xbot who likes his action fast and furious. Ah well, definitely going to be looking into this one!
lol, pwned. Everyone knew from the beginning that it would be some mediocre hack & slash.
Well, we KNEW from the "lightning bolt action" tag that it was a move away from actual, proper MG but, to me as a massive series fan, this looks like sh1t. I can only pray that there's a bit more to it than this shoddy showing-and I was one of those who felt, even if it wasn't going to be full MG that it would still be a great game but my hopes are dwindling after that crap. Oh well, not what I was hoping for AT all. Bad year to bring out a H/S game as well with games as strong as Bayonetta and GOW3 already showing what masters of the genre like Kamiya and Sony Santa Monica can do. Kojima's puppies haven't half chosen a risky route for unlucky old Raiden this time, imho.
nice a new ip, with Crytek. Codename Kingdoms. but yea, we all knew MGS:R was going to be a hack and slash..
fuk the haters! I was expecting nothing it looked great! great graphics too
Kojima looked so so uneasy on the stage. He can't wait to say that he's passing the torch to his producer haha.
i like how Hideo comes on stage, says one sentence then walks away. The game didnt look to bad at all, look forward to seeing more but ya. Nothing like MGS at all.
As I said in another article, it looks like an amazing hack n slash game. Ryu, Dante and Bayonetta have a new competitor in Raiden it seems. EDIT: I hope that everyone thinking that this would be a traditional MGS game now understands what "Lightning Bolt Action" means.
but to us ps3 owners it was like meh.
Don't get me wrong, it looked great, but no stealth? As a long time MGS fan, I'm a sad panda. :(
This is not MGS, this was not a stealth game :S
There was nothing wrong with the game, and it was impressive,you are blind or either a fanboi to not see the tech behind the engine, the engine i bet allows you to have all 3D models to engage in. Did you see the watermelon, and the buildings, it showed no respond points where any of the damage was done, this will be a solid title, this may not be the type of action that we seek in a metal title,but it will be well made and i honestly believe that the graphics look bit than metal gear solid 4, (but yet again, mgs4 was a 3 year older title, so in all honestly its not fair) yet then again, us ps3 onwers dont understand is that,deep down, Hideo Kojima is a sony fanboi, and that you guys aren't missing much, he has something in store for us. But to call a title from Kojima unimpressive, thats a laugh in its self. Update: Why the disagrees, becuz i stated the truth
I'm not bothered about the tech, fella, what I'm saying is if they take Rising totally down a Hack and slash route they're up against some serious competition and, sans great Kojima input, I dunno if they can face up to GOW or Bayonetta or even DMC3. All I can think of saving this title for me(and I was happy til now to say I thought it'd be a good game even though it was unlikely to be MGS)is if it's REALLY quirky in a Kojima way but without him immersed in it I have to worry.
斬奪 = cut and take, I was right! :)
Wow, a lot of haters in here. Quit trying to compare it to Solid, it's a different game. I'll check it out, on PS3, and so will all of you hating on the game. You'll deny it, but you'll all check it out.
I don't think everyone's hating on it, to be fair, as personally, the game just doesn't look to have the spark of wonderful oddness we've come to expect of MGS games. I'd been expecting a great game-even if NOT typical MGS-up til now and just don't think what I'm seeing measures up very well as a hack/slash game compared to other releases in the genre. Obviously, I stand(and hope) to be proven wrong but just didn't think it looked that good or even very interesting so far. Really, I just wish it had been better, I don't hate anything(doubt anyone does)and am just very disappointed even considering I was expecting both a different style to MGS and a loose hack/action title all along. To me, even in those terms, it simply doesn't(atm) ,measure up to games in similar genres. Don't just blithely think people are hating on it when most(I think) are simply slightly underwhelmed MG/Kojima fans. As for checking it out: well, right now, it's a rental at best though I expect I will end up renting(at least) esp if some of the missing Kojima gloss is added along the way. Visually and animation wise it looks fine but the rest just left me feeling a little flat-but a long, long way from hating.
I like the cutting technology. Awesome to see character models be cut precisely and have it look so good. Granted, it's not what I want to see when I see Metal Gear Solid, but hey, we might see some new stuff soon.
Not a true metal gear and no snake no buy sawrry
Ummmm... We are getting this game too right? Damn Microsoft. Alsays playing up multiplats as if its theirs only.
the only thing that was cool about this was the ability to cut anything everything else was lame.
