53w ago - Sony Latin American Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales shared another slice of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on PS3 today with details below!
To quote: By now, we're all familiar with the long, twisted story of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. First announced in 2009 as "Metal Gear Solid: Rising," its production was ultimately handed over to Platinum Games, the studio behind legendary action epics such as Bayonetta and Vanquish.
Recently we attended the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Boot Camp, where members of the press were able to go hands-on with a nearly complete version of the final game.
I won't talk much about the story, but it's worth noting that a several years have passed since MGS4, the Patriots no longer exist, cyborg technology is within reach of all who can pay for it, and Raiden belongs to a corporation protecting a very "important" someone in Africa.
In the first scene, we meet two of the game's bosses. They are not people with a sad past or who are attached to a feeling: They are simply very powerful cyborgs looking out for their own interests, no matter what they have to do in order to get what they want.
79w ago - Sony Latin American Blog Manager Lorenzo Grajales has revealed some new details today on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system below.
To quote: Leading into the release of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Kojima Productions tantalized MGS fans with an iconic trailer that depicted a cybernetically augmented Raiden (a la Gray Fox) slicing and dicing hordes of foes using a razor-sharp sword and acrobatic flips.
MGS4's Raiden was a refreshing departure from his whiny, abrasive turn in MGS2: Sons of Liberty, and before long series fans fantasized about controlling him in a dedicated adventure. Luckily, that fantasy will become reality thanks to Kojima Productions and Platinum Games.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes place nine years after the fall of the Patriots in MGS4. We played a demo at E3 2012 and tested Blade Mode, which you probably saw in the game's trailer.
Blade Mode is very simple: you activate it using L2, which triggers slow-mo and a zoomed-in camera view while Raiden gets into slashing position. You control the sword with the right analog stick: Everything in the path of the sword will be severed, whether it's a structure, the body of an unfortunate combatant, a vehicle...even a girl's dress (ooh-la-la!)
121w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared some video footage from this year's Gamescom today showcasing Dante's vertical slice in Devil May Cry on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Last year, Capcom and Ninja Theory revealed their re-imagining of Devil May Cry (now known as "DmC" at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show.
The response to Dante's makeover and new look to the universe was split between adoration and outright confusion, with fans questioning the new look and fighting style of protagonist Dante.
Heading into Gamescom, I received word that Creative Director Tameem Antoniades wanted to discuss DmC's progress and indulge me in Dante's new found love for aerial combat. After being reunited with Tameem and Dante, I'm left crying for more.
255w ago - The £3,000 TV, the latest in the Japanese firm's Bravia range, is just 9.9mm thick. That is 60 TIMES slimmer than a typical set from the 1950s.
It is so thin because tiny LED lights usually illuminating the flat screen from behind have been placed round the sides.
Spokesman Christian Brown said: "Sony is continuously striving to lead the way with advanced innovations in TV technology and cutting edge design. We're excited to see our customers' reactions."
THE 1969 moon landing has been voted the best "World First" captured on TV, according to a Sony poll to promote its new tellies. Barack Obama's inauguration was second and the assassination of John F Kennedy third.
