So because Raiden uses a codec and there's alert states, it's Metal Gear? He even said it's Metal Gear because of alternate weapons. Haha, wha? Where does IGN find these people? It's not canon, it's not Kojima, it's not Metal Gear. That's not a dig at the game, it's a reality. Doesn't mean it won't be fun, awesome even, but MG: Ground Zeroes is a true Metal Gear game.

And it takes place 4 years after the events of Guns of the Patriots. So what if it isn't snake. He is isn't the only character of the Metal Gear Universe, Last I remember Raiden in his Cyborg Ninja form was a prominent character throughout MGS4.

You're right it isn't metal gear Solid, but it was never meant to be, Solid Snake is no longer the Main character, Raiden is Far more invasive versus Solid Snake who is evasive!

Sorry but Solid Snake>Raiden

It's not canon. It's in the Meta Gear universe, but has nothing to do with the Solid series. Kojima producing is not the same as Kojima directing. Also, there's a "touch" of stealth. All that said, I'm interested in checking it out. I'm just sick of outlets claiming it's something it isn't. Let it and the skill of Platinum Games speak for itself.

People only say Snake because that's all they ever played with through out the MGS franchise with the exception of 2.

And once again its Canon, it may not have Solid in its title now, but it did when it was announced. Producers product is still his, which means he gives the executive desicions of what content gets in the game. After all he's the fucking writer of the script and the final say. The director just makes sure the green lighted content on the script translates the best way to silver screen and media.

Don't sit there and call it non canon when it picks up 4 years after the events in the solid franchise, Guns of the Patriots, which is canon to the metal gear universe and Solid snake story. People are still trying to discredit this game because you aren't crawling around and choking people with snake so its not metal gear? Lol, if you say so. But its every bit as metal gear as the previous, because Kojima is wrote the story and is producing the game while Platinum is developing.

I don't know how people could sit there and think Kojima would just hand his universe and characters over to some other studio and not have a hand in its relevance to what he created. Fans are so easily dismissive when they feel they are entitled.

I'll stand and say it's not canon then. I don't care how long after MGS 4 it takes place, it's not canon. It's not the Solid universe, period. Throwing a Metal Gear battle in the mix doesn't make it canon. Etsu Tamari is the writer, so before you spout anymore misinformation, look up what it is you're talking about.

I think it's a joint venture with kojima productions doing the story and platinum games the gameplay ( correct me if I'm wrong ). So if that's the case it definitely is canon. Just not solid snake canon.

I'm loving the look of rising, looking forward to it more than ground zeroes...if only because it'll be out much sooner!

The best part is, even if you're ripping this guy a new one - it IS very Metal Gear. It features a Metal Gear to battle against. The new trailer shown at TGS shows Raiden fighting a Metal Gear. OMG indeed.

RyuX192241d ago

Dude it's canon they've already said it's canon. Metal Gear is the universe and Metal Gear Solid is a part of that universe and so is Metal Gear Rising. Two different games, all part of the same story.

If you don't like it then you can either deal with it or stop playing the games.

Don't know too much about the MG games, only completed Snake eater. But having watched the new trailer last night I don't think it looks very metal gear at all...

majiebeast2242d ago

The reason its called metal gear is brand recognition just look at other games that do this.

-Bioshock infinite
-LBP karting
-Resident evil operation raccoon city
Among others.

Not saying the game ont be good but the reason it carries the name metal gear is solely for selling the product.

violents2242d ago

I loved every metal gear game ive played except for MGS2 guns of the patriots because you have to be that whiny raiden character for over half the game.

Raiden sucks, cyborg ninja or not hes prob still whiny.

CarlosX3602242d ago

Oh hell no you didn't.

Raiden was [email protected]$$ in MGS4..!

violents2240d ago

Perhaps, but i was refering to mgs2 not 4. And he was a whiny bastard in 2.
