Nice render...I have a strong feeling that this game will allow you to upgrade Raiden's cybernetic parts throughout the game and the final, fully upgraded form will be identical to how he appeared in MGS4. In the stage he is at now, many aspects do not match and this clearly looks like a more mechanized/ less android version who is closer to whatever terrible mishap left him little more than a brain and spinal column.

I can't really remember how much of that back story ever got explained in MGS4 but I think it was left deliberately murky as it would seem to constitute the story of this game.

The Database pretty much covered his post-MGS2, pre-MGS4 exploits:

He lived with Rose a while before he went off to look for Sunny who was being held in Area 51. After rescuing Sunny, he joined up with an Anti-Patriots group, the Paradise Lost Army. From there, he left Sunny with Snake and Otacon and went to search for Big Boss' body which resulted in him getting captured and experimented on by the Patriots (testing out Exoskeleton Enhancement research on him). PLA helped him escape and because he was now a Cyborg and rid of nanomachines, he was able to retrieve Big Boss' body. Lastly, he studied scouting techniques with a Native American Shaman in Alaska while also learning to hunt.

From there, Big Mama asks him to help Snake and the rest is MGS4. I'd recommend checking out the database if you haven't already as that pretty much covers the entire series.

Well I hope the gameplay will be decent as MGS4's is only so so, I like the story, graphics are real good but the gameplay just isn't that brilliant and lets me down.

I wish Kojima was going to be more involved in this.

He will be. He claimed he wouldn't be that involved in MGS3, we all know what happened there. He claimed he would be done with MGS many times and wouldn't play too much of a role in MGS4, we saw what happened there.

Watch as MGS Rising comes closer to completion and release, Kojima will say how he has a much larger role than he intended or probably even taken over on the directing. History shows Kojima can't stay away from MGS, especially major MGS console titles.

MGS4 having so so gameplay?

Hell no, the gameplay is what I enjoy most about the series, the story is just too long winded and overbearing most of the time for me to catch it all (see above). Anyway, I think this game is almost certain to be much more action based with Raiden as the main protagonist.

MGS4 plays great as long as it's about sneaking, as soon as it plays at being a shooter it gets clunky and works less than satisfactory. But all in all it plays pretty well. IMO.

Why is "Solid" in the title if it's supposed to be about Raiden? It sounds especially stupid to have Rising follow Solid =P Anyway I'm not too excited about this or the new PSP one (Portable Ops was garbage if you ask me). What I'd like to see is a new MG game starring a REAL female, not Raiden.

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if it's Sunny. It definitely doesn't look like Raiden, the eye colour is wrong, and the fact his armour seems to have had a massive downgrade doesn't make much sense.

Plus Kojima likes to do things likes to trick us like that.

As long as he doesn't write for the game.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts They seem to have instead opted to invest on services, which XB1 has more and better than PS4. (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Hopefully, but they need more than just 1 or 2 talented studios, probably 10 or so. Which I just don't see Microsoft investing that much money on it, to be honest. But I would love to be wrong. (2 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I can give them time. It took Guerilla 17 years and how many Killzone games before finding their feet with Horizon: ZD. (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: I like seeing all companies succeed, and where MS are concerned, my eyes are on them and Playground Games. (9 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Yeah, I was all-in on PS1 and 2 back then. But I never hated them. And now I miss what they represented to the gaming business. I will never forget that. (11 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Dreamcast was the last time I ever fanboyed for a company, but 1st party titles were the least of their worries. (13 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Though I still want Microsoft and Xbox to succeed. I still remember when we lost Sega. Think of the Mega Drive/Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast. I would hate to see Xbox go away. (15 minutes ago)
