The most ridiculous trailer to come out of this weekend’s VGA’s may also be the most amazing.
The long dormant Metal Gear Rising has resurfaced with a new subtitle and more tongue-in-cheek action than the interior of your mouth can allow. Fans of MGS beware – Revengeance replaces “stealth espionage action” with “my fucking arm has been hacked into a million pieces by an electric samurai sword!" It’s a subtle difference but readjustment may be needed.
Besides dropping a nonsense word on our vernacular, the trailer comes toting the news that up and coming developer Platinum Games is behind the slaughter. While they have one other future release slated (the crass beat-em-up Anarchy Reigns), catch up on their previous over-the-top spectacles in Vanquish and Bayonetta. And, yes, that would require of you to stop playing Skyrim for an unspeakable hour or two.
