Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available on GOG


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance lets you tardy down time and slice objects into pieces, and their 3D models intersect exactly along the lines of your movements. For that reason alone, I think you should have it. You can now have it DRM-free on GOG.

Metal Gear spin-off arrived at the digital store earlier this week. It’s currently 40% off to just £12, as is on Steam as part of the Summer Sale.

Revengeance tells you most of what you need to know by calling itself “Revengeance.” It’s a Metal Gear spinoff that leans heavily into the high kitsch and bombast of that series, starring cybernetic hunk Raiden who commits third-person knife crimes against enemies, some of whom are robot dinosaurs and some of whom are presidents.

Another brief description: Revengeance is also the pinnacle of Platinum Games.

Alice0 was a huge fan, especially for the moment we can colloquially call RULES OF NATURE. Rich Stanton was also a huge fan, going into detail about the genre’s strengths and Revengeance’s particular combat system:

Revengeance falls into a genre that never quite found a natural home on PC, so it perhaps deserves a bit more attention than it’s received – as one of the best 3D combat systems ever, a precise masterpiece built around a compelling hook. The genre is also often misunderstood for its overall length or its narrative-driven cutscenes that are insignificant compared to the real point. Stylish combat and plenty of combat.

You I just have to.
