‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ Preview: A Bombastic Departure | StickSkills

You think this game is pretentious? Or given to rhetoric?

I think he meant it as fantastical or over-the-top, I guess a lot of us don't know what bombastic means cause I described the Jack the Ripper trailer as bombastic but in an awesome and over-the-top way when I first saw it lol.

I guess I need to break out the thesaurus to find more synonyms for awesome.
