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…
