E3 Trailer from Microsoft E3 Media Briefing.
Finally, the trailer has appeared.
Out of the press conference for microsoft this was the only thing that excited me, this is on ps3 anyways, this conference is worser than Nintendo.
but don't you love how only the Xbox 360 name and logo were shown at the very end of the trailer at 1:59. Oh Microsoft, your little bits of propaganda that stem from you bottomless check book is so funny and pathetic at the same time. No it's actually not funny, just pathetic. Microsoft just can't make their own blockbusters, so they feel like throwing money around and duping some people (specifically the casuals) into buying their console for a specific multi-platformer is their way to survive. Survive yes. Thrive, No.
Yeah, the Xbox 360 logo is not part of the trailer. It's just something Microsoft added at the end of it. You don't fool me, MS, you don't fool me!
Lighting Bolt Action??? They should have called it MGR or something. Don't know how interested I am in this anymore, but I guess I need to see more!
NOOOOOOO ITS PAINFUL TO WATCH MY EYES
i dont believe anything that comes from MS unless is people playing it wit their 360 joy pad and see the x and y buttons on the screen.
I'm not defending MS here, but SONY did the same thing for Assassin's Creed 2 marketing. On topic, though, this game looks like crap. As a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, I'm severely disappointed. What happened to the stealth gameplay? Now we can just cut people in half? Nice move, Konami & Kojipro.
Rising doesn't feel like metal gear at all. It looks like a hack and slash action game. Hopefully there are more stealth aspects to it because with a character like Raiden it could be a great new story line in Metal Gear. This Rising looks more like Ninja Gaiden Sigma when it should be more like Tenchu....or....more like Metal Gear.
They should of called it "Raiden" and see if it sales with out MGS in the name.
from a business standpoint...
That looked like Ninja Gaiden than MGS. WTF??????????
I looked like Ninja Gaiden to me also, but with something different maybe better. But again, "set in the Metal Gear universe" is really all they have to say to me.
... Kojima productions has changed the MGS series from Tactical Espionage Action to "Lightning Bolt Action" .. in other words if you're looking for stealth gameplay, most likely you won't find it here.
^^Kojima made it very clear that he was only overseeing MGR...not directing it...It WON'T be a Metal Gear Solid game like fans are used to...probably the main reason Kojima himself said he was disappointed with it so far...
By far the coolest thing at the MS conference. I'm happy with what I see. It's not stealthy espionage like MGS normally is, but the game definitely looks fun and has that Kojima sense of humor with the watermelon cutting.
HAHAHAH! Cold is eating up this multiplat.
Personally, I liked it, but it's not Metal Gear. It's called Metal Gear, and it has Raiden, but it doesn't look Metal Gear at all.
see my earlier comment
Graphics are a bit outdated but that's to be expected. The real-time slicing and lighting is great. The shadows are low-res but this will probably be fixed by release. Environment textures are low res textures is low res, however, and that's a bit disappointing. Also disappointing is the use of last-gen tricks like baked shadows rather than actual normal maps for things like the four small bumps on the mech's "hand." Hopefully these are just place-holders and will get proper shading by release.
I don't understand why anyone is getting worked up over a trailer, I'll wait till I see ACTUAL gameplay footage before I pass judgement on what it's "better than". Many of you know the 360 has a track record of gameplay graphics that don't live up to their trailers. With PS3 it has been quite the opposite so I doubt rising is gonna win any graphics awards.
If this does not take up to 4 DVDs for the 360, then I won't be buying it for my PS3. 360 just holds everything back.
After seeing I'm telling you guys right now the sh*thead Australian gov is going to ban this game. Because cutting people up into 1000 pieces is too much fun and clearly needs to be censored....
I've never played a MGS game but this trailer was cool. Cutting people in pieces looks fun.
if there is no stealth stage implemented into the story anywhere, i'll cut cut cut my head off... I Like mgs becasue its not a hack and slash action game, (albeit mgs4 had some action elements) for me this is a step in the wrong direction.
The hell is that? That wasn't metal gear..That was Ninja Raiden Sigma :/
It looked a little bit off but it is still early.
those 360 bots don't like stealth games... Look at splinter cell, sales failed on 360... They want hack and slash cause they have no patience. Btw the game looked kinda laggy i hope they fix it
Seriously...WTF!? Cut...Cut....Cut.... Keep Cutting.... No Solid Snake, No naked Snake/Big Boss = No MGS Game
I kinda agree with you, Snakes/BB is heart of MGS games, I don't like Raiden. But art style looks pure MGS, and trailer was interesting too.
this kinda reminds me of a modern day VR:missions from MGS2.
have you somehow played it long enough for you to realise there are no Metal Gears or are you just being stupid? every Metal Gear fan knows that the Metal Gears are actually the Robotic Machines the charcater has been sent in to destroy. So yes it is a Metal Gear game obviously it does not have snake because its not about him its abot Raiden so if it doesnt have any Metal Gears when the game is released your point is valid up until that point... you FAIL.
what was up with the Hatake Kakashi look of Raiden :o\?
Why everybody is acting like they are surprised??? ITS MOTHER FICKING RAIDEN HOW DO YOU WANT HIM TO FIGHT??? sheesh fanboys are really pissing me off
umm You ever play MGS2...that was raiden and it was stealth...so uh yea.
They had to make Raiden cooler from MGS2. Kojima even announced that he was surprised people hated Raiden. So he was made cooler in MGS4.
Although hamoor is wrong, he is right in respect that you do fight with blades in MGS2. I think a lot of people round here are forgetting the blade fights toward the end of the game and this trailer looked distinctly similar to that style. I think a lot of the ps3 fanboys round here arn't really mgs fans, otherwise they would have noticed this in a flash.
@ThanatosDMC exactly.... some people really don't make sense. Look at all the hate Raiden got in mgs2.. then people complain he plays different now. come on, In MGS4 everyone was going off their rocks about how cool the cut scene was with Raiden fighting Vamp and how awesome it would have been to play that... ok, well now you got a whole game playing like that... now everyone is complaining again cos they want him to play like he did in MGS2. honestly after seeing him in MGS4 I thought it's nice to see them expand on that. MGS4 is cool ( it's still my favorite exclusive on the ps3 ) but why would I want to play as Raiden if he is just going to play the same as Snake, I may as well just stick with 4. If this was exactly the same game exclusive to the ps3 you lot know you would be shafting yourselves all over your Tv with the ZOMG it's AMAZZINGZ BEST GAME EVER - We Love you Kojima and you are a god and all that crap !.... but no, it's multiplat so it automatically falls into lets find a reason to hate it. I loved it, and it was by far the coolest thing to come out of MS pathetic excuse of a sadass conference. I am happy it's multi, everyone gets to enjoy it.
Dude, exactly what I said. Although you said it early. I hope they don't ruin it man.
And why is everybody banging on about god damn graphics! Did nobody see the bit where he sliced that guys legs of in slow motion! AWESOME!
well remember this game is being catered for western audiences, meaning just hack and slash. That is why its coming to the 360 since this style of game suits the console where as mgs4 was more strategy. After watching the trailer i pretty much new it was going to turn out like this when they announced it. Like a previous poster mention Ninja Raiden Sigma.
MGS game strategy? I'm sorry, but I have to say that was hilarious.
Nonsense, MGS4 was the easiest MGS game to play with a run n gun style.
This is what we call a new game, cause you know eventually without innovation it all becomes the same regurgitated crap. But I know, I know we can get to FF14, Gran Turismo 5, and Killzone 3 and its new and original, but as soon as Halo, and Gears gets a third game it becomes milk.
Just a' choppin'!
This is not MGS that i know.
lol why you bitchin, this game looks like the bitchin game of 20XX!
Agreed. Pass. I don't care how much they cyborg him up, Raiden is my most hated MGS character. Hack and slash games don't normally do much for me anyway. I'm into Greek mythology so the God of War games were awesome, but Dante's Infero, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, Darksiders... meh. Just not my type of game in general.
No Dude Its Ninja Gayden
The only thing that is Metal Gear about this trailer is the title "Metal Gear Solid" and half of Raiden's face. I guess we need to wait for more footage. I want a 15 mins demonstration like Kojima did back with MGS4. Only through this we can tell. The trailer didn't show anything from the story and it looks really weird!! VERY weird for a Metal Gear game!
its only metal gear in name it seems although this is still an early build
What are those things? That doesn't seem like this is happening during MGS4...
It's probably when Raiden went off to go save Sunny. I'm surprised that 360 people are eating this up especially those who havent played MGS4.
Although its not a typical MGS, it does look good, would be awesome if it had move support. I have all MGS games and I'll be getting this one as well.
Trailer is way too low res. Gameplay is typical h'n's. I was expecting to see more sneaking/infiltration gameplay, perhaps Kojima thought xbox audience is more action oriented.
Why are so many expecting a Metal Gear Solid game? Snake isn't the main protagonist, and stealth gameplay doesn't seem like the direction Kojima Studios wanted to go with this. I'm totally digging what I'm seeing. The animation is fluid and imho I think it looks much nicer than MGS4. I believe some may be biased because a) it's not PS3 exclusive b) a lot of people seem to think Raiden is gay.
i agree with u bango, i think it looks awesome and i cant wait. i luv all the MGS games and i unlike many morons understand that this is a spin off and has the name metal gear because it is in metal gear universe. and i hate when people say typical hack and slash. how bout the typical shooter since that genre has infected the game industry worse than the boubonic plague. game looks sick, especially the destruction, slashing pillars and cars in pieces. and it will only get better most likely
I think people are expecting a Metal Gear Solid game because, well, it says "Metal Gear Solid" in the title of the game... Anyways, I like what I see. Something fresh, a new perspective on the Metal Gear universe. You want typical Metal Gear gameplay? Well lucky for you, we've got Peace Walker. Want a new experience in the same universe? Well we've got MGS: Rising. All I know is, after seeing Raiden fight Vamp in MGS4, I wanted a chance to play a game like that. And here it is.
lol sneaking with raiden? interesting expectations...
um raz in mgs4 did u see raiden stealth killing enemies and hiding? no he was whoopin a$$ all over the place, y wud u think this was gonna be stealth with a title like lightning bolt action feature the wanna be grayfox?
From what I can tell: Graphics are definitely above MGS4 The first half of the trailer was really corny and cringe-worthy, but when the gameplay showed, I was impressed. The animations are really fluid compared to MGS4, and the destruction looks good.
"Why are so many expecting a Metal Gear Solid game?" Why not? it is Metal Gear Solid: Rising isnt it? I know about the lighting Action thing but "lol sneaking with raiden? interesting expectations..." Sneaking was the top art among Ninjas. I would expect some gameplay from MGS4 elements to be used in this game. Perhaps I was expecting too much and this is just Ninja Gaiden: Raiden as some are saying. Regarding the visuals, you guys assume too much out of such a low resolution video. Temper your expectations and you would not be disappointed.
Well, the title of the game is "lightning bolt action", MGS's are "espionage". And if you ask me, MGS4 was more about shooting than sneaking. I gave up for stealthy sneeking back kills at second chapter.. The game just threw tons of guns for you, which you could ammo all the time.. But anyways, game looks interesting, chopping melons was fun.. :D Tought I can't stand Raiden, I hated playing with him in MGS2, and I didn't like him in MGS4. Gry Fox was waay cooler.
@above Yet you are not forced to play MGS4 as a shooter. You definitely can, probably that was Kojima trying to make the game more accessible, but if you recall MGS4 had Octocamo, which improved the sneaking mechanic tremendously + all the traditional elements that were part of MGS franchise. I still have a little of hope, this trailer is just showing the Action lighting gameplay, but Kojima might have something more in the vein on a traditional MGS game planned.
Yes, it all was there, and I wanted to be silent snake in the bush, taking my opponents down one by one. But the game really didn't engourage to do that. More than once when I was dragging opponent, enemy from my cameras dead angle spotted me, made alarm, and all my effort was for nothing. After that, no point hiding, it's waay easier to just deal the reinforcements. So, basically later on, I just delt with enemies from distance, not by sneaking. The camo was cool tought, way better than changing your outfit from menu XD I can see that too, that Kojima wanted to give more opportunities, but personally I just think things weren't balanced in the game. This might sound I hated the game, but I actually loved it, tought I hated the "yepee, everybody is happy and ok" ending. I wanted that god damn "ultimate sacrifice" they were promoting! I'm still pissed off how Kojima ended the series.. Kojima played waay too safe on the ending, and explayned it way too much.. Number 3 is still best package in the series, I would LOVE to see remake of that, and the first one. And I agree, I too hope there's some "Kojima's magic" in this game..
That is actually very impressive
That looks pretty f****** awesome.
