A nice chunk of MGSV related news made the rounds last week. This all ranging from the opening of the new Los Angeles based Kojima Productions studio, a screening of some new gameplay footage (behind closed doors unfortunately), and more details of one of the prominent characters in the game. The latter portion has already caused much controversy.
Hey kids. So after a month or so of virtually nothing we finally get some little morsels of MGS news. This post will be a roundup if you will, of the current events that have happened thus far related to anything Metal Gear. Lets get to it.
It looks like NA isn’t the only region that will have gotten their hands on the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection (MGS LC for short). Europe will be the next recipient of this archived collection of past canonical* MGS titles. As with the NA release Europe will also be getting Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid (download), VR Missions (download), Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, and the Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 digital graphic novels. The art book will also accompany this collection and will be strictly for PS3 owners. I say the more the merrier. Everyone should get to enjoy MGS as a whole series. Though Xbox 360 owners will be left in the dark. At least they have the HD Collection, which also contains Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (more…)
Well it looks like the rumors of an MGS Legacy Collection that a Korean site announced proved true. Apparently this collection will be released on PS3 and will include: Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 (also includes the first two games, Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake), Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions and Metal Gear Solid 4. Also included are two Metal Gear Solid Digital Graphic Novel by Ashley Wood. So you can play the MGS Saga in order of release, chronology, or backwards. Though I’d suggest going in the order of release as every iteration updates their graphics as well as control scheme so by the time you get to MGS4 and PW the controls will be more westernized. The release date is roughly sometime this June so till then we can all just drool over this awesome poster below.
On April 9th Japan will receive a tasty little treat in the form of DLC. Players will be able to take on the role of Jetstream Sam aka Samuel Rodriguez and will also find out more about his backstory and some details eluding to his past before the events of Rising. The DLC will cost 1000 yen. Here are a few more screen shots.
Juicy cyborg spines. It’s what’s for dinner.
Happy little trees.
Hey boys and girls. Just dropping a quick update to let y’all know that I’m still playing Metal Gear Rising. Some fun things I’ve found out along the way so far are little touches enemy AI in terms of animations.
I remember mentioning in a post a few weeks ago that I’d be writing about my endeavors with the recently released game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, by Kojima Productions and Platinum Games. As my paternal/parental duties take precedent I barely have time to even warm up the ol’ PS3 let alone have the energy to concentrate playing the game when I have the chance. Having said that, I was actually lucky enough these past two weekends to squeeze in some playtime between my kid’s requisite bottle feedings, nap times, and occasional fussiness, thanks to my awesome Wife slash mother to the aforementioned rug rat. That, and posting via mobile app actually works for my blogging needs (feeding/burping baby while updating my posts). Hey, a brother’s gotta know how to multitask. Means more content at faster intervals to all you wonderful people! By the by, since I rarely get these precious nuggets of free time to absorb some gameplay, this will be a Staggered review of the game. In other words, you’ll get more information about my impressions as I chip away at it. Alright, let’s get to it.
