Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Now With More Metal Gear Ray

The term "magical" has come to mean many things. To the superstitious, it evokes fear of forces unknown. To romantics, it is the pairing of two wayward hearts. To Apple, it means a giant iPod Touch. Yet transcending all of these - stronger than the Black Arts, deeper than the most timeless romance, and cooler than the official Instagram iPad app - is the sacred union of giant robots and apocalyptic death lasers. As such, I've always had an affinity for Metal Gear Ray: in fact, for reasons known only to myself, it is my favorite of Kojima & Co.'s bipedal monstrosities.

Said monstrosity finds itself front and center in the latest trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. As part of Raiden's ongoing campaign to transform his image from "not Solid Snake, therefore sh*t" to "blade-wielding cyber-ninja," our humble ex-chump sees fit to bring his newfound might to battle Ray - leaping, slashing, and dismembering his foe with due prejudice - as his helpful assistant provides helpful information, while trying his best to fake a Russian accent.

What do you think, gamers? Does Revengeance signal a bold new direction for the series, or is this all so much gimmicky nonsense? Sound off in the comments section below!

This game looks too much like Bayonetta, not enough like a Metal Gear game.
Also, I must be the only person that thinks Raiden was a far better character in MGS2 than he was in 4 due to him actually having a character arc rather than being a walking cliche, as well as spending most of that game doing something besides dying on a hospital bed.

This being my first time seeing/hearing of Ray,I have to say I find him rather addorable, like a huge puppy of doom thats just upset he lost his squeak toy :P . The game seems like it could be fun though ill most likely not be getting it since ive never gotten any of the other MG games.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
