Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PC)

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PC)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was easily one of my favorite games of 2013. I had the pleasure of reviewing it on the Xbox 360 platform, and found myself, for the first time, truly¬†loving a Metal Gear game. A lot of this may have been due to Platinum Games having their hands in on the game’s development, of course. If you’ve been paying any attention, I often praise Platinum Games to a...[Read More]

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (360)

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (360)

When someone says that a game is not worth $59.99 solely because of its length, I always throw Vanquish out as an example of an incredibly high quality, yet short, experience that is unequivocally worth full retail pricing. If a game is both short and underwhelming, then I can understand the argument, but simply discounting a game based on length will always result in an impassioned argument of...[Read More]

Review: Zone of the Enders HD Collection (360)

Review: Zone of the Enders HD Collection (360)

I find myself in a somewhat contradictory position. I have never played Zone of the Enders or Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, yet I am a massive fan of mech games and anime series. I’m not sure why I never got around to it, but the recently released Zone of the Enders HD Collection is my first experience with the series at all. That being said, aside from a few bumps that really should h...[Read More]

Zone of the Enders HD Collection Limited Edition Detailed

Zone of the Enders HD Collection Limited Edition Detailed

I’ll be honest here and say that I’ve never played any of the Zone of the Enders games. I’ve heard about them, and I understand that they have a cult appeal, but I’ve simply never gotten around to it. I find this particularly odd, because I do enjoy the concept of mechs, but there’s nothing to be done about it now. Except play the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collec...[Read More]

If you haven’t read our PAX Prime coverage of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, then what the hell are you waiting for?! Get on it, and get excited about this game. You know what’ll help you get even more excited? Limited Edition details. Announced two weeks ago, the Metal Gear Rising: Revengea...[Read More]

PAX Prime 2012: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

As I’ve said before, I’ve never been a huge fan (or really, any kind of fan at all) of the Metal Gear franchise of games. I find the forced stealth gameplay through extreme punishment for derivation from that gameplay to be contrary to my enjoyment of the experience. I appreciate all that it has accomplished and what it means for its fans, but it’s not a game/series that I can si...[Read More]

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – Tutorial Gameplay

I’m not a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid series. I can appreciate it for what it is, but the gameplay itself is just not my preferred style. I never thought I’d find myself excited for a Metal Gear game, to be honest. Then I heard that Platinum Games was helming the next Metal Gear, titled Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and a spark of interest lit within me. Platinum Games is curren...[Read More]

E3 2012: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

E3 2012: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

See, because it’s revenge…and vengeance…Revengeance. Ok, so ignore the fact that “revenge” and “vengeance” are synonyms with nearly identical definitions. Think of it as just a really badass sounding name, and when you think of it that way, you’ll realize that it doesn’t HAVE to make sense, it just HAS to sound badass. Which it does. Regardless...[Read More]

E3 2012: Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Last year’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 was a strong effort on Konami’s part, but fell just short of its perennial competitor, FIFA, in terms of polish and gameplay. With Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, Konami seems to be making a determined effort to close the gap and match, if not overtake, the monster in its closet. Their E3 2012 showing for Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, due this fall, has re...[Read More]
