The old one got locked (no idea why...), so I'm starting a new one.

Anyway, what do you think of Rising? Personally, I'm afraid it'll be more of a hack and slash game than a stealth game... And of course, I'd rather play as Snake than as Ridian.

There's also this strategic board game called 'MGS: Risk' coming up. Sounds interesting, but personally, I'd rather see something centered around Outer Heaven/MG1 than MGS4.

Also:
MGS2 > MGS1 > MGS3 > MGS4

The main thought I have about MGS Rising is that it doesn't exist anymore. It was revealed at E3 2009, and then we heard and saw absolutely nothing from it until E3 2010 when they showed that trailer of Raiden slicing watermelons. And they've showed absolutely nothing since. That's sixteen months of nobody involved with the game uttering a peep. Nothing at E3 2011, nothing at this year's TGS, nothing at all. In fact, the last story related to it was that Quinton Flynn (Raiden's voice actor) hadn't been contacted by anyone at Konami about reprising his role. So I'm pretty sure they've just quietly left that game to die or they've scrapped everything and are starting from scratch on the new engine that Hideo Kojima's been talking about.

A game that definitely is coming out, though, is the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which I think is out next month. It's MGS2, MGS3 and Peace Walker all re-rendered at 1080p and 60FPS in one package. I'm pretty sure it's MGS2: Substance and MGS3: Subsistence, too, which means all those hundreds of VR missions and Metal Gear 1 and 2 from Subsistence. I haven't played MGS2 or 3 since I retired my PS2, so it'll be nice playing them again, and I've barely played Peace Walker at all because the PSP controls were awful (they've been redone for the Dual Shock controller with proper right analogue support this time). In keeping with tradition, though, they're delaying the collection in PAL territories until quarter 2 2012, which is ridiculous. I hated it back in the PS2 days but those were the dark ages of PAL and NTSC and to keep that up in the glorious region-free future is deplorable. I mean, I'm gonna import them from Amazon and it won't affect me in the least, but it still gets me all riled up.

I hope the reason for the secrecy surrounding Rising is that they've changed their mind and now are going to make it into a proper Metal Gear Solid (Metal Gear Solid 5???), with actual stealth gameplay (not slicing everything with a sword) and an elaborate story.

In any case, I think there's some huge surprise coming up...

I really don't think Hideo is going to make any more MGS games, in my opinion, MGS4 was his way of saying I'm done with this game.

This, exactly. One or two months, three stretching, is okay. Maybe 6 months is allowed, but 3 years? It had already died.

@Ocelot: I agree about Metal Gear Solid: Rising, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it came out in a few short months, or a year. Hideo Kojima is the grandmaster of misleading advertisements and keeping things close to the chest.

Kojima isn't working on Rising. This dude is. Kojima's only acting as Exec Producer, so he won't be doing much. He too busy working on this new game engine that's gonna be used for a new title he's working on (we don't know the name of it, sooo).

As for Rising, since it was announced in 2009, I don't expect it to come out 'til later 2012, perhaps late fall, maybe. *shrug*

Eh, you're not wrong either. 'Cept for who's directing Rising. :P Otherwise, it's all up in the air. Nobody is quite for sure, since the project seems to have gone dark the last two years. As in, no word about it has come out. We might see something at E3 2012 since Kojima sorta hinted at making an appearance next year when he made this announcement video about 'Transfarring.'

What about this newly released picture of Raiden where he's not a cyborg yet? Does this suggest we may see the process of him becoming a cyborg ninja in Rising?

"@Ocelot: I agree about Metal Gear Solid: Rising, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it came out in a few short months, or a year. Hideo Kojima is the grandmaster of misleading advertisements and keeping things close to the chest."

There has never been such a long blackout regarding an (already announced) MGS before. I hope it means they've scrapped the project and are now working on MGS5. Or maybe they're working on a remake of MG1/MG2...? That would be awesome.

Pssh. Why are you even comparing those old, lame games to....


Posted Image

MESAL GEAR SOLID, a minigame within APE ESCAPE 3! (The game is pretty fracking big to be a minigame). Basically, a streamlined remake of MGS1, without the ability to kill. This ups the difficulty a lot, since you can't choke/kill someone, and when you tranquilize them, it's very brief. So, it's a lot of old-school sneaking. The other monkeys are free to use guns, however. Go figure. :rolleyes:

I'm in such a mood to play MGS3, and I don't think I can wait until the HD pack comes out. Gonna go buy it, like, today.

I wonder why aren't they including MGS1 in the HD Collection...

There's supposed to be some big Rising news this month.

Also, apparently, in MGS2 HD you'll be able to use the HF Blade in the pre-Arsenal part of the Plant chapter (I guess as a bonus after finishing the game (with certain stats maybe)). I wonder what effect will it have on Fatman...

That... that's really awesome. I hope they don't make you get a Foxhound rank on Extreme or anything like that because I'd love to play through the Plant stabbing fools.

Or maybe it'll be like Substance where, "Yeah you get the HF Blade... In VR Mode. Trololo." Which I seriously hope isn't the case, but the HF Blade would indeed be awesome to have. :P

Well, I'm playing Metal Gear Solid 3. Fight with the End. That's cool. I sneak up on this guy, 4 times. 4. I hold him up four times. He even lies down on the ground, surrendering. But then I don't get the Moss Camo. I wanted that. I crawled on my ass for ever to sneak up on this guy. I got the Sniper Rifle though. Whatever.

Or you just wait a week and he'll die of old age.
