I like the idea. I didn't like that they made Snake old. But now that he's old, making Raiden a lead character is a good move.

@Static Shock: eww raiden ewww, it's not even tactical epsionage anymore, i'ts "lighting bolt action" which means they are turning the metal gear series into a freakin button masher, screw that,

@Lantern Prime: couldn't agree with you more, I think this is Kojimas way of gettin back at all the people who sent him death threats about MGS4

You don't know what Hideo Kojima has planned for that game. Don't think because Raiden was doing all that ninja stuff in the MGS4 for that MGS5 is going to be Ninja Gaiden-esque. The game hasn't even come out yet.

@Static Shock: Well first of all button mashers are more geared towards xbox, second it's the first in the entire metal gear series of 20 years to not use tactical espionage mission, this game uses LIGHTING BOLT ACTION! , third can you really see raiden all cyborged out sneakin around and using camo, Noooo, he was the one to run around and go sword frenzy at everything, of course it's a button masher. look at the signss man

HAHAHAHA! From my understanding Raiden gets old body back in MGS4. So does that mean this takes place before 4?
Posted by Tyler Starke
@Lantern Prime: I don't think so, he actually looks worse off then he did in MGS4, his face is way more cyborg, and he is wearing snakes bandana over his right eye

You're speculating. You don't know what the game is like. All these assumptions don't mean anything. Lightning Bolt Action could mean a lot of things. It doesn't mean that there won't be stealth in the game. Like I said, you don't know what the game is like.

@Static Shock: I don't doubt their will be some obsure version of sneaking but for the majority I'm betting it's button masher,I believe sir we shall have a gentlemans challenge, I'll get back to you in 2011 when the game freakin comes out

Challenge for what? I never gave an opinion as to what the game is gonna be like.

@Static Shock: touche, well make an assesment
Posted by Sparda

It's not MGS5.

It's currently being called Metal Gear Solid: Rising. If it really was MGS5, I think that the announcement for it would be way, way bigger.

Also, the Konami press conference is going on right now. Kojima has said that it's the same MGS stuff, just with Raiden as the lead character. So, no Ninja Gaiden crazy button mashing.

@Sparda: i hope to gawd you're right, cause I'm holding you responsible if kojima breaks my heart

not convinced yet, and second of all, WHY RAIDEN!? SNAKKKKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

You're wrong, it's coming for PS3.

@Lantern Prime:
he did get his body back at the end of mgs4.


this story could take place before 4 and after 2, show him saving sunny, finding big boss' body, working for eva, that would be cool to see. or a story after 4 would deffinatley be great too, no more patriots to be manipulated by or to try and stop though. this is still great!!!
raidens not even that bad of a character, i loved mgs2.

He didn't get his organic body back.
Posted by TelekineticSun

he had his body at the end of mgs4, when he met his son, he wasn't a cyborg anymore, or did he just have that terminator skin over him?

I think those parts were still artificial.
Posted by TelekineticSun

perhaps, it obviously wasnt his original body because their were not any barcodes on him. but that body deffinatley looked like a regular human body.

Posted by TelekineticSun
@John Valentine:
i went to see what metalgear wiki had to say about, they said that he was fitted with a more practical looking body, so it is probablty artificial parts that resemble a normal human form.

It may have looked like a regular human body, but it was most definately not.
Posted by TelekineticSun
@John Valentine:
yup, i started agreeing with you after you said you thought those parts were still artificial.
Edited by Tyler Starke

He was still a cyborg yes, umm it's not coming on ps3, and it's going to be half sneak,half button masher, plus if you like raiden more than snake, you're not a metal gear fan

Posted by Tyler Starke
@John Valentine: oh and john did you bother to look at the link you quoted from me, Kojima himself says it's xbox exclusive, I'm sure about 6 months to a year after sony will get some version of it, but at first all xbox
Posted by DEGRAAF

i loved the last one. i still havent beat it yet though. I cant get the serynge in the vampires neck. I would like some one to tell me how.

I would be the new one with raiden as the character of choice if it comes out for PS3 which i dont think it is goin to which BLOWS

That's not true, considering the fact that Raiden is a Metal Gear Solid character.
Posted by TelekineticSun

I don't like Raiden more than Snake, but i do like raiden as a character and if your a metal gear fan than you can appreciate everything the game and it's story lines have to offer including seeing the game from Raiden's perspective.

I love metal gear solid it's my favorite game period, but it doesn't mean I have to like everything about it, think about MGS3, do you remember the bosses in that game, FEAARR FEAR FEARRR EXPLODE! yeah I didn't like that, ok and I actualy like raiden I just don't want the series to steer away from snake

Well thats good news then, I did feel a little better when they called this game a spin off, hopefully that means they can make a final game with snake.
Posted by TelekineticSun

All though Snake is the first and best protaganist in Metal gear i think the games can go on with out him, Only because Snake is near death at the end of mgs 4 and if the game were to take place after mgs4 then i can't see snake having anything more to fight for, the patriots are gone and snake won.
I would love to see some remakes of the Metal Gear games that came out for NES... i think it would be cool for fans that never experience those games(like myself)to play them with great cut scenes and gameplay on the ps3.

Posted by Tyler Starke
@TelekineticSun: Remaking the old games would be a really good idea, I've actually played all the old nes versions, even the non canon one. I really hope the next game is good, I just don't think it's gonna be what were used too, but that can be a good thing somtimes, Snake Snakke SNAKKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Agreed. After all, Snake is going to die, so there's no point in making another game with him in it.
Posted by DEGRAAF

i kinda figured that they would end up reversing what has happened to him and making him young again

I was shocked when I read this(get it?) There is plenty of points to make a game with Snake in it.

That would be cool but wayyyyy anticlimatic

The pun intended toward my user name was weak.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure Kojima is done with Snake for right now. He made him old and tired, and near-death. Thus, there's no point in him being in another game.

You can't get a second wind from a virus that was made to kill you in a few months.

In just a few months, after the events of the game itself. It will kill him, eventually. It's inevitable.

Nano machines fix Everything! yayyy, Snake isn't done yet mark my words. He's not gonna die in between games buddy, if kojima was going to kill him he would have done it in MGS4

Ew...

For a lead character, I was expecting a better design than that thing...

@-Eclipse-:
are you refering to the main blog picture if so That was Raiden in MGS2
Posted by -Eclipse-

No, I was referring to the other crap-tastic image on the first page. It looks awful.
