He Is Revengeance, He Is the Renight


There’s a lot of great stuff coming out of the Tokyo Game Show right now, and I’ll get to some of that stuff later, but for right now, all I want to show you is the increasingly bewilderingly awesome insanity of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This 5-minute preview not only shows some of the truly ridiculous bad guys in the game, but also some creepy ball-and-arm droids (that Raiden can hack and control), and Raiden’s ability to open up and enemy with his sword so he can rip off his fucking spine. It’s just fantastic. Honestly, I can’t imagine that the slicing-things-into-pieces mechanic could possibly get boring for me. It looks like the most fun ever.
