Metal Gear Solid: RisingPosted: December 9, 2011 | |
Maybe you forgot about this trailer from 2010, but noted eccentric game producer Hideo Kojima is set to announce some stuff about Metal Gear Solid: Rising tomorrow at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. While the VGA is so absurd and so embarassing that it makes me wish Spike TV didn’t exist and that I didn’t play video games, it should be worth checking out. I mean, it’s Kojima. What could go wrong?
Raiden gets a bum wrap pretty often, but I liked him in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots well enough. And while he is no Solid Snake, playing him in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was actually pretty fun, if you ask me. You instead got to see the “living legend” Solid Snake himself in action. And Raiden wasn’t as awful a character as he was made out to be. Granted, he was a bit of a sissy and I often worried about being outside for too long in case he got skin cancer really easily on account of being an albino, but he had a cool backstory and, judging from his state of being in MGS4, had a cool break between games 2 and 4.
