MGSV Ground Zeroes English Version of 2013 TGS Demo

Following PS4’s Launch Party on Spike TV last night, Konami today has just released an English version of the MGSV Ground Zeroes 2013 TGS Demo that’s as shown a few months ago. Kojima Production’s Sean Eyestone was narrating the familiar gameplay in English, pointing out all the bullet points of what can be done in Ground Zeroes. During gameplay we can hear Kaz Miller (Robert Atkin Downes) giving Snake mission directives via codec. In the section during Snake’s enemy interrogation we can hear Kiefer Sutherland say “Spit it out!” (more…)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Comes Close To Great, Hampered By Wonky Controls

20130304-011021.jpg

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.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance update

Metal Gear Solid: Rising

 

After my blaring recommendation yesterday, I might have to pull it back some.  I played a bit more today, and the camera system on this game is just horrendous.  For a game with such a high pace and fast action, the camera can’t seem to keep up.  I’ve had unnecessary deaths due to the camera not being able to decide on where to place itself.  It’s probably one of the worst camera system’s I have played with so far.  It totally detracts from everything else that is so good with the game, and just ruins the whole experience.  Maybe I need to play with some settings as what NekkedSnake suggested, but at this point, I just need to put the controller down, and take a breather.

Yes I may be over reacting right now, but hopefully my tune will change tomorrow once I come to terms with taming this camera issue
