More action and fewer cut scenes.
its multiplat you can bet that more then HALF of the 360 user base did not play any metal gear games considering the average age for XBL is 25 and for PSN its 35. What im saying is MGS4 was total fan service and the amount of story in it just proves it. Most of my friends that have a 360 have only gamed ONLINE with a 360 and never played PS2 online. Infact a lot of my friends (im 36) bought into Xbox 1 and really never played PS2.
that there flexible as developers they even stated they they might bring motion control support which would expand the market even further
Man your comment has "fail" written all over it. I see your at one bubble so i'm not even bothering.
While I'll be the first to admit MGS is a bit pedantic in the way Kojima spins a tale, it does touch on subjects that aren't found in todays games. Political commentary and human nature are really explored in the series. The series has also incorporated more minorities and strong non-videogamey- female leads than any other series in the history of gaming. At the same time, doubled with immature playful Japanese perversion. Has a pretty decent balance. Its just been a pretty solid ride with the series. It really wont feel like a Metal Gear game without these things. The cut scenes and the convoluted story are all what you expect. The story takes twists and turns, and gives you way more information than you need. But there are people who love all the small details. You can enjoy the basic message, or enjoy the deeper message/meaning that ties the universe together. This one looks to be an action spin off, well not looks, but clearly is at this point with Kojimas distance hes clarified on this game. One catered to an audience who isn't interested in any of these things, just the pictures in the book you know? Sure, Konami wants to turn a buck. MGS4 couldn't be ported into the 360's hardware for cheap/easy else they would have done it. Even then, it wouldn't sell to the 360's demographic. Who all have critisized the series for being a "movie" with 3 hours of gameplay. With that negative association with the series, Konami is taking these well known characters and themes, and wedging them into another genre. I don't see the action hungry Rising fan, revisiting the other titles. They would be bored to tears. So -maybe- thats not the goal of this one, but to just get this type of MG game to a new audience. Which is great, but I only hope that Kojima keeps making his traditional titles, and im sure most can agree with that. At the end of the day, Konami could have just made a action/fps if they want to just make money from the franchise and add call of duty & halo's features. Throw a serious advertising budget at it, and call it a day. I hope thats not the future of gaming, but it seems the writing is on the wall.
oh I'm sorry I didn't relize sliding money under the table had to do with hardware constraints btw Rising using the same engine pretty much only heavily tweaked which is actually a good thing the engine MGS4 used looked like shit anyways
@Pootangpie I reviewed your post history and your not a fanboy of either console because you talk smack about both to do nothing more than cause chaos with the people on that thread topic. Your the worst type of person because your a lonely person that no one wants to play with.
It's for those with a short attention span. XD
Did this guy said that HALF the xbox users havent played a MGS game because the age average of the users is 25? What kind of STUPID LOGIC is that dummy? 5years ago the Xbox360 was new. What console you think that those xbox owners had? Xbox? no they most probably had PS2 with Metal gear games on it like The 2nd game the 3rd that came in 06. Before that What console was there you think? PSone and They had Metal Gear on that aswell. So at the Age of 20 Those guys were able to play 3 MGS game on PS2 and 1 on The 1st Xbox. at the Age of 19 they could of played MGS twin Snakes on Nintendo Game Cube a Few years before they could have played them on PSone while they were in 6th grade. You cant Based what other people did On What your Friends did dude. I'm 20 and Own a Xbox360. Had a PS3 since Lunch date played all the MSG games on there. was a Kid with a PSone played MGS on there. Had a Gamecube Played Twin Snakes on the released week.
It's a mediocre game targeted at casuals.
It's a dumbed down, action game trying to appeal to the 360's fanbase who couldn't appreciate a true MGS. That's the reason that this will be a rental. Even Kojima himself wants nothing to do with this game. If you want a true MGS sequel (or prequel) get MGS Peace Walker.
If it isn't broke don't fix it.
You mean 30 hrs of cutscenes and 2 hrs of gamplay go to too tired after MGS4 MGS3 was more balanced
yea yea keep sayin that u hater
Blow me.. the cutscenes are second to none ! they are so good.
♥ This is great! I always found the MGS games complicated. The story was confusing and so was the gameplay. Im so happy they taking a casual approach with this ♥
I am not. I like the fact that the story in MGS has been complicated and you have to put some level of thought to understand it.
i like the subtle way UP used to call vixen stupid... i agree.
So rather than find a different game series that suits you, you'd prefer to have an established franchise with millions of fans dumbed down to your level, giving those fans a big 'two-fingered salute' at the same time? Yay for democracy!
Hey, didn't Square Enix try to aim for a wider audience with Final Fantasy XIII? Lol
For some reason this just seems like verbal justification of the change to multiplat. Because the change to mutiplat will inevitably lead to a complete change in gameplay, depth, and story, due to the lack of storage on the 360.
Then why make it a canonical title set between MGS2 and MGS4? This seems like a game whose plot is entrenched in MGS lore... to ignore it is rather... silly to me. Why not make a spinoff universe or new one like Acid? Answer me that please Konami.
@Unicron It's a opportunity grabbing title...here's why Konami saw the response from the fans for Raiden in part 4 because of his new look and skills, realized that since part 4 had an ending that changed things (won't ruin the ending for those who haven't beat it yet) if you know what I mean. This made them think when would be the only time in story line that would make any like of sense to allow you to play as Raiden in his MGS4 form...ta da in between 2 and 4. See how logic can help us out with making these types of rational leaps.
Multiplatform games. 9 gigs used for the 360. 41 gigs unused on the PS3. How wastefull does that sound?
CLONES MOBILE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.......... I THINK IF IT WAS REALIZED FROM THE BEGINING IT WOULD BECOME A TRILOGY & A PREQUEL THE STORY WOULD HAVE FLOWED NICELY CAUSE KOJIMA IS MOVIE DIRECTOR AT HEART........G4 HAS A SPECIAL ON THE STORY OF METAL GEAR....... IT STARTED AS A STEALTH GAME BASED LOOSELY ON ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK........ I WOULD LOVE TOO SEE A NEW FULLY REALIZED IP FROM KOJIMA THAT'S PRE WRITTEN FROM BEGINING TO END IT WOULD BE A MASTERPIECE GUARANTEED....... SORRY FOR THE CAP'S IM BLOGING ON MY PS3 BROWSER TEXT ARE REALLY SMALL UNLESS I TYPE IN CAPS...........
Mgs4 was an incredible game at first. As the game progressed though, it felt like I was watching a movie. The last act consisted of 15 minutes of gameplay and 2 hrs of cutscenes.
i know right that's why i loved mgs3 it was 50/50
For me, it was almost 50/50. 9 hours gameplay, 10 hours cutscene
The final cutscenes got boring but then out of the blue goddamn Big Boss shows up. Worth it.
It was a fan service and an incredible game. Stuff like that don't grow on trees.
Most people use to say "ohh you just bought a movie, not a game" but i'd be like "Yeah i got a very long movie and a game that takes longer to beat then most games out there" ;) MGS4 was awesome, i just hope the fewer cutscenes MGSR has, will still tell an amazing story :)
There is a single screen movie theater near where I live where for 100 bucks an hour you can rent the screen and play games or watch any movie you want. I rented it for five hours and my friends and I played and watched MGS4 on the big screen with the Dolby Digital or whatever it was rattling the seats. It was beautiful I highly recommend it. Seeing Raiden's fight with Vamp on the big screen is definately win. I'm going back sometime to finish it.
thats so awesome.
uh oh,time to petition for MGS5
M$$ payed $$ to Them 'cought'
I own both consoles, and this may be crazy, but I plan on buying both versions and playing through both and I will see for myself if there are any major difference between the two. Question: will Rising have multiplayer like Metal Gear Online or what? I imagine that would be huge on LIVE.
