A lesson on the rules of nature from Metal Gear Rising

Following yesterday's Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance post, we have received a number of letters wishing to know more about the "rules of nature" that I--and so many others--shout about any time someone mentions the game. What are these rules? Must we all follow them? Seeing as 2018 is the year of Revengeance, it's only sensible to brush up. Here are the RULES OF NATURE!

Have You Played… Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The dawning of a year means a little more of what was once the near-future is now the present. While most games set in 2018 squandered this just-out-of-reach year by simply speculating that sports teams might have slightly different lineups--a shameful lack of vision from PES…

The Bestest Best Word Of 2014 – MGR: Revengeance

Revengeance is a real word, you know. It's an obsolete, and a mite ostentatious, form of 'revenge'. But my, how ostentatious is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance! The tutorial level's mid-point is a fight with a robot dinosaur where you leap between its missiles in mid-air and ultimately cut it in half lengthwise, coolly sheathing your sword as it explodes behind you. The tutorial! I'm glad…

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

I've gone retro with my gaming for this weekend, but what era am I revisiting? The low-bit arcade stylings of the late 80s? The JRPG heyday of the PlayStation years? Ten years ago, when Half-Life 2, World of Warcraft and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines all came out within a week of one another? No! I've been travelling the mysterious, mystical land of, uh, 2013.…

Replaying Revengeance: Difficulty, Mastery And Fighting

One of the downsides of being a games journalist (violins please) is that you don't play many games that aren't also 'work.' I secretly indulge a Counter Strike habit and the odd round of Hearthstone behind the sheds, sure, but mostly I play stuff I'm writing about or might write about. To break into that cycle takes a special kind of game. Something unique in…

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance review

Metal Geaaaaaarrrrrrrr?!?!?!?! On PC? This particular collision of worlds - masters of espionage infiltrating the home of spyware, cyborg ninjas running amok in cyberspace - isn't unheard of, but it's far from the norm. Then again, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn't your average Metal Gear game. It dispenses with stealth almost entirely, favoring combo and counter-heavy action over tippy-toeing and mullet-rocking. But does the extra…

Wuh-Oh: Metal Gear Rising Unplayable Offline

Edit: Steve Key, European Brand Manager for Konami, confirms that this was an accident rather than a DRM issue and the publisher has applied a fix: "MGR PC Update - offline problems *should* now be fixed." That's quick work and commendable. Oh no, say it ain't so. Another single-player game that boots its owners back into cold, cruel reality the second an Internet connection drops?…

Steam Allows Publishers To Disable Cross-Region Gifting

Doing all your Christmas shopping for your distant desert-island-stranded relatives who you've not heard from in over a decade on Steam? Well, relish the convenience while you can, because Valve's added an option for developers and publishers to disallow cross-region gifting and trading. In addition to the obvious ramifications, this may pull the rug out from people who use those features to get around arbitrarily…

There It Is: Metal Gear Revengeance Finally Dated

We've known for a while that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (because why have one meaningless subtitle when you can have two and invent a new word) would eventually turn its helicopter-bifurcating blade on PC, but that's all we've known. Like a ninja or secret agent from any series other than Metal Gear, Konami's been pin-drop silent on details. BUT NO MORE. Metal Gear Rising: The Redundancing now…

Surprising: Metal Gear – Revengeance On PC Soon

"Any day now" is the timeframe given for the release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in a recent Kojima Productions Alert podcast. Responding to concerns that the port had been cancelled, host Sean Eyestone says that's not the case at all: “It’s in the final stages right now. You’ll be seeing it pop up on Steam any day now.” This being the shooty-slicey side of…

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Revenges On PC

The news infiltrators of Joystiq have blown cigarette smoke over the laser-beams of the internet to reveal that a Hideo Kojima podcast contains the enigmatic announcement that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be coming to PC. This has apparently been confirmed by some kind of senior chat at Platinum Games. "I am excited to see Rising hit the PC," he says. Well, us too, twitter…
