Preview: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Goes for the Throat

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Goes for the Throat

Come out swingin'

There are three things we’ve come to realise while writing this preview for the latest Metal Gear outing from Platinum Games. First, we still can't type "Revengeance" into a text document without hating ourselves – it's not a word, it isn't cool, it sounds dumb. Second, we’ve learned that we’re okay with Konami releasing...

Metal Gear Rising's Special Edition Includes a Lamp

Light up the dark

Collector’s editions have become pretty predictable over the past couple of years – but the Metal Gear franchise refuses to comply. Konami has tossed aside usual conventions, announcing that the premium package for its upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will ship with a lamp based on Raiden’s sword from the main game...

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Carves Out a Slot on PSN

Digital love

Sony’s getting really aggressive with regards to digital releases. An increasing number of blockbuster titles are hitting the PlayStation Store at the same time as retail – including the likes of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Konami has confirmed that the swashbuckling spin-off will hit the PS3’s digital storefront in Japan on...

Metal Gear Rising Demo Includes Free Copy of ZoE HD

Couldn't resist

We know it’s the oldest “joke” in the book, but we still remember when people purchased the original Zone of the Enders just to play the demo for Metal Gear Solid 2. As such, it’s funny that the visually re-mastered Zone of the Enders HD still can’t seem to escape from the shadow of Kojima Productions’ other more popular...

New Little King's Story Marches into UK This Month

Vita exclusive New Little King’s Story has already started its stroll from East-to-West, with publisher Konami confirming that UK gamers can look forward to playing the sequel-cross-remake as early as 27th September. The publisher previously confirmed a 2nd October release date in North America – so this is a rare instance of...

First Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Screenshots Sneak In

Foxy

Beyond last weekend’s reveal, Konami has been frustratingly quiet about Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes – but it has released a handful of high-definition screenshots for you to pore over. Unlike the sub-par captures available elsewhere, these are direct-feed – allowing you to see every crinkle on protagonist Snake’s lived-in face. The...

Silent Hill: Downpour Drenches Japan on 8th November

Gloomy outlook

Publisher Konami has forecast an 8th November release date for Silent Hill: Downpour in Japan. The title launched in Europe and North America earlier this year to a mixed critical reception. The game will release as a PlayStation 3 exclusive overseas, presumably due to the lack of interest in the Xbox 360 platform. Silent Hill:...

Don't Mix Up Project Ogre and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes

Two different beasts

Project Ogre and the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are two entirely different projects — and don't let Hideo Kojima hear you say otherwise. Metal Gear's main man huffed on Twitter that he was "sick and tired" of people asking if the games are one and the same during PAX Prime. We gues

PES 2013 Scores Champions League Themed Metallic Cover

Prestigious

Pre-orders of PES 2013 in North America will come with a UEFA Champions League metallic cover, publisher Konami has revealed. We suppose it’s a bit strange for Europe’s premier club competition to be featured on the front of a US release, but we suspect that anyone buying PES in North America will be familiar with the competition. If...

PES 2013 Secures Licensed Brazilian Teams

Hooray?

Who cares about the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A when you’ve got 20 officially licensed Brazilian teams? That’s the positive attitude Konami’s being forced to adopt for PES 2013, noting that the addition of teams like Corinthians and São Paulo helps to create “the most authentic soccer experience available on the market”...
