As expected Konami does it big again with another great launch event. They really know how to pamper their loyal supporters. As we were all treated with an open bar and food. This Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Launch Event was held at the Hard Rock Cafe City Walk in Los Angeles. A big thank you to all Konami staff and BM for their generosity.
Hit the jump for some great shots of the event, and be sure to check out my review of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance here!!
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a very innovative, engrossing, spellbinding, and controversial title. If there is one word I can use to sum up the experience of playing MGR, it would be perplexed. The game was almost canned by Kojima Productions due to difficulties with the story line and production direction, however, Platinum Games, well known for titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish, and most recently Anarchy Reigns, were handed the reigns to steer this title in a new direction. This was a decision that was downright risky given the nature of the game and also its main character, Raiden.

I’ll tell you right now, Konami knows how to throw parties! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet the producers and most importantly, say thanks! In case you missed our coverage of previous Konami events, you can find them in the links below.

Gamescom in Germany is underway and the typhoon of information is coming in by the late hour. Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima confirmed via twitter the release date of the highly anticipated spin off, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, as being February 21st, 2013.
[UPDATE] Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that it will release METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE in North America and South America on February 19th, 2013.
Seems to me that Kojima Productions and Platinum games have a couple of surprises up their sleeves! Wait till the very end of the footage to see see the latest addition. Check out the video now!
Imagine living in a world where cyborgs rule and various military groups have employed these cyborgs as their personal bodyguards. Fortunately for us, that world is contained in Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising. I was very skeptical at first, however, it took me less than 5 minutes to be submerged and fully embrace the world of Metal Gear Rising.
The game starts off in a courtyard where a person with a German accent is explaining the controls. Targets raise up off the ground, revealing at first, standalone silhouettes. The second batch of targets are a little more challenging, as they appear to be holding hostages. This is where the fun begins. You hold down the L1 button and the game goes into a slow motion, Max Payne bullet time-style mode. With the right analog stick, you guide the “cut line” (indicated by a orange glow) where to cut, then you simply flick the right analog to that direction, and there you have it!
As the demo progresses, you work your way up the chain, so to speak, by fighting cyborg soldiers one at a time, and sometimes even two at a time. Later on, a Gekko shows up meaning to ruin your day, but you make short work of it by grabbing its tentacle and spinning it around like a stringed Yo-Yo. That’s the way I disposed of it, however there are hundreds of other ways. “Ninja Run” was demonstrated, where you simply hold down a button and you can dash on and around cars, over walls, evade attacks, and “rocket jump”.
