Platinum Games! You have my hype!

blaaah2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

Platinum developed madword right? Don't get me wrong, it was a good game.. but no where near the standards of Kojima's Metal Gear.

Oh how wonderful, teh videoz was claimed by da copyrightz!

Lavalamp2082d ago

Platinum developed Madworld, Bayonetta, and Vanquish. I'd say they are definitely the right team for this sort of game. And for the purists, they dropped the 'Solid' tag, so let's all enjoy the campy spinoff.

Parapraxis2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

Platinum made Vanquish, That's enough to make me very interested. Now I am super-psyched for MG Rising.
TPS fans who have skipped out on Vanquish need to get it asap. Throw it on your christmas lists, it can probably be found for a good price.
(People who disagree have not played Vanquish)

gaffyh2082d ago

Ok so just watched it, and being a huge fan of MGS games, I'm not impressed. Platinum Games make games with great gameplay, but their stories ALWAYS suck (going back to DMC1 even, which was a great game), and this looks exactly the same. MGS is all about story, but they've totally chees-ified it. Even the colours and the environments look nothing like a Metal Gear game, as it's overall a little too bright.

I'll probably still play it, but I doubt it will feel like an MGS. It looks more like Ninja Gaiden+Bayonetta.

MaxXAttaxX2082d ago

It's the same engine, right?
They probably downgraded it to make it multiplatform.

Blacktric2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

Wow seriously? All these disagrees for the people who liked the idea of Platinum developing the game? I mean haven't they already proved themselves to be one of the best action game developers with titles like Madworld, Bayonetta and Vanquish?

"Ok so just watched it, and being a huge fan of MGS games, I'm not impressed. Platinum Games make games with great gameplay, but their stories ALWAYS suck..."

Rising was never intended to be a pure Metal Gear Solid game. It just bears the series' name and takes place in the same universe but its a spinoff. Also, the production is overseed by Kojima himself. What else do you people are expecting from a spinoff?

Razmossis2082d ago

Everyone that said "it's not a Metal Gear" over the past year... have been bloody right.

Seriously, get Metal Gear out of that title NOW!

gaffyh2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

@Blacktric - Konami assured us that this was totally an MGS game. That is the reason I have issue with some of the stuff in this trailer. It'll probably be a fine game, but doesn't feel like MGS from this trailer.

Pacman3212082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

They really shouldn't have put "Metal Gear" in it's title, as this is not a Metal Gear game. This is just a spin off.

Why o why2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

i wasnt expecting a 'traditional' metal gear so im not gunna act all surprised and pissed now. Looks like it may have too many cutscenes for those who complained about mgs4s ones....u know the things that are tied heavily to modern metal gear games. This is more action based but i can see it too will probably feature many cutscenes either way im still interested


well its always been a spin off. More scope for adjustments. If somebody asked me if i could have a hack n slash in the metal gear universe i'd bite their hand off. Lets hope it pays off. It would be dumb to want this to end badly...thats not gamerish

Eamon2082d ago

Basically, after the hiatus and silence after E3 2010's trailer, it seems the game went back to the drawing board.

The whole initial concept is no where to be seen. This trailer showed nothing of Zan-Datsu. It seems that the promises of how MGS:R would allow the player to play stealthily have been discarded.

Now Platinum is developing and the original Producer was dropped, this confirms that MGS:R went back to the drawing board and has completely changed from its initial concept.

I have mixed feelings about this. The theme is completely different from past MGS games. The realism and tactical action we saw in the E3 2010 trailer seems to be gone and replaced by a proper hack and slash gameplay.

Not sure if I'm happy or upset to be honest.

hqgamez2082d ago

Looks like Kojima and his crew left this step child.
Gosh MGS4 came out a while back and has better graphics. It was ps3 exclusive!
Now you had it over to a developer that can't do anything decent for ps3.
We All Saw Bayonetta

NeoBasch2082d ago

Platinum had nothing to do with the PS3 port. If you want to see how well they do when they lead on PS3, check out Vanquish (from the director of Resident Evil 4). Platinum Games is one of my favorite developers alongside Naughty Dog, Remedy, Valve, Sony Santa Monica, and Rocksteady.

JaredH2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

I don't know what to think about this. I loved Bayonetta and Vanquish but this trailer was edited to be so cheesy. It was just random words flashing to a guitar cut in with gameplay. When it zoomed closer to Raiden's face for every noise I was stunned.

malol2082d ago


so much with all the (kojima working on it)
its just MGS and Kojima name on this POS

Darrius Cole2082d ago

Well this explains why we haven't seen Bayonetta 2.

This game may be Metal Gear, but its not 'Solid'.

I'll still buy it though unless I hear very bad things about it. I like hack and slash. I loved Bayonetta even though I had to buy it on 360. I really loved Metal Gear Solid. Putting the two together has to work, especially if Kojima-san is to make sure it is up to standard.

This game is being made for the Metal Gear Solid fanbase so it has to run well on PS3. It would be absolutely stupid if it was another 360 first title that has a flawed PS3 port.

sikbeta2082d ago

Doesn't look that good, sorry had to say it :P

Sevir2082d ago

The engine under went plenty of change, Art direction is a little brighter but it does have the yellowish brown/golden screen toning that MGS games are known for, And I loved Vanquish so i'm sold on this.

Whats cool about this is that the rumors about this that was so debunked months ago are "true" which ties quite well into why the game was strangely absent from E3 this year, and also goes with Geoff's tweet about what's really the "truth" behind Kojima's reveal tonight! Call me crazy but i'm hyped about this! :-) Ready for this game!

ABizzel12082d ago

I must say it's not what I was expecting at all. It's full on hack and slash and it still looks a way off (Currently gameplay looks like a slight improvement over the generic dynasty warrior hack and slash), but knowing Platinum games reputation the gameplay should be top notch by launch.

I must say I was expecting it to be a bit more Metal Gear, than over the top Bayonetta like action.

I'm not disappointed just confused.

christian hour2082d ago

Yeah I say take out the metal gear, Call it Reveangence Rising, and in small tiny letters on the box somewhere (a metal gear story) If its not being developed by Kojima Productions then its not going to have that metal gear feel, its a spin off, let it be a spin off, remove the metal gear part, you dont see other spin offs doing that, if they did you'd have shows called Friends:Joey!, Dr Who:The Sara Jane whatevers, , Buffy: minus buffy (angel), Cheers: What frasier does outside of the bar, Family (Black) Guy etc.

CarlosX3602082d ago

But..but....RAIDEN literally freakin' held a METAL GEAR!

How can you guys not be excited by that. Literally holding METAL GEAR!? Awe c'mon! You guys not excited about that!?

I am. And my body is ready.

SilentNegotiator2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

"Wow seriously? All these disagrees for the people who liked the idea of Platinum developing the game? I mean haven't they already proved themselves to be one of the best action game developers with titles like Madworld, Bayonetta and Vanquish?"

Vanquish was an over-hyped game that was too short and had poorly balanced energy. Madworld was a meh-fest. As for Bayonetta, it was good but didn't have much focus to its combat.

If that lineup makes them "one of the best action game developers"...

Gamer19822082d ago

The point is here Kojima studios is not making the game so it won't be the same calibre as previous games. Then again it is a spin off so we should expect this. Don't get me wrong Titanium made some quality games but this is Metal Gear here one of the most successful franchises in gaming history and lets be honest they only work as well when the original developers make them. Halo Wars is an example and although not a AAA franchise Crackdown is another perfect example of why changing devs in a series is a bad idea.

lastdual2082d ago

Rising was NEVER going to be a classic-style MGS game. Anyone who was paying attention already knew that.

If you're going to do a Metal Gear action game, might as well have the best team in the biz on the job.

Yes, Platinum's style is even more over-the-top than MGS4's already ridiculous cut scenes, but the gameplay will be top notch.

im calling fake. not the gameplay just the voice over and text and how the trailer was put together, looks way too cheap i think were being trolled

chainer30002082d ago

this is what i thought. looked horrible compared to what it could have been... I think maybe a playstation move title or something?

Daver2081d ago

hmm its not what i was anticipating, it dosnt even feel like a mgs game, im not impressed at all so far.

dark-hollow2082d ago (Edited 2082d ago )

i dont care what others say but bayoneta despite it corny"ness" and cheesy cut scenes is one of the best hack n slash games when we talk about combat and gameplay.

letting platinum have their run on this game is a wise choice.
its not mgs as we know and love it, but it looks like a good spin-off nonetheless.
dont hate on it because it is very different! its not like they are shifting the franchise! there will be mgs5, and there is this spin off which looks promising.

KeiserSosay47882082d ago

Completely agree. Bayonetta was ABSOLUTELY ridiculous, but is, imo, THE most in-depth hack n slash this gen. The controls and combo system is near flawless.

MaxXAttaxX2082d ago

Bayonetta had great combat. But I couldn't get into it because of EVERYTHING ELSE.

Darrius Cole2082d ago

Bayonetta is great. Although I have to disagree with it being the most in-depth hack-n-slash this gen. That award still goes to Ninja Gaiden (any one of them).
