Monthly Revoltech Report: Raiden

Whoah! The Monthly Revoltech Report is back? Sort of. Let’s take things slow. But anyway, this one’s a surprise. Revoltech figures are usually related to giant robots, but Raiden will launch in November and it frickin’ comes with a sliceable watermelon. Hopefully more Metal Gear Solid stuff will follow.

'Metal Gear' Solid Gets Geekapella'd

Max & Sam are back, this time lending their groovy man-voices to the MGS series for a tribute of tactical acapellic proportions.

It’s My Snake In A Box, Girl

Revoltech’s 25h Anniversary figure featuring Naked Snake aka Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker is all sorts of banana biscuits. Sadly, it’s pretty much sold out everywhere, so you’ll have to pay stupid rude eBay prices if you want one.

Sexy Lady Snake Cosplay by Crystal Graziano

Obligatory joke about our snakes being totally solid or whatever. Pics by WHITEDARRYL.

Speaking of pretty girls in skimpy cosplay, did you hear that the ladies of 16 Bit Sirens are trying to raise awareness (Among other things i.e. weiners. Oh snap!) to how some cosplayers are mistreated at events?

Yes, it seems that just because a woman dresses like a whore for attention to celebrate their fandom, or whatever other reason, it doesn’t mean that she actually is a whore! Allow the great Dave Chappelle to elaborate.

Never forget.

But for real, guys, if you’re groping up on chicks at cons, you’re a super creep and should be ashamed of yourselves. There’s never a good time to not act like a proper gentleman.

What Metal Gear Rising Should Have Been
Don’t get me wrong. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a great game. But at the same time, it’s a missed opportunity. “Rising” seems to allude to the rising action that crescendos in Guns of the Patriots. Konami and Platinum should have taken this and run with it.
As soon as I saw Raiden as a cyborg ninja, taking apart a Gecko with his katana and feet, I needed to know the backstory. How did Jack the Ripper become the next Frank Jaeger? What happened between the brainfuck of Sons of Liberty and his cyborgification? Explaining that was the plan for Rising. But that got scrapped in favor of a story that took place after Guns of the Patriots. So we’re left wondering how Jack got his lightning bolt action.
Backstory is what Rising should have been all about, to the point that it could have been its own side-series to Metal Gear Solid. Everybody wants to play as Cyborg Ninja, AKA Grey Fox, AKA Frank Jaeger. Playing through the events of Metal Gear Solid as Grey Fox, eventually coming face to face with Snake would be amazing and could even serve to flesh out the other members of the cast like Vulcan Raven and Sniper Wolf.
And while she didn’t have quite as dramatic a transformation as Raiden did, I want to know what Meryl was up to between Ski-Dooing off of Shadow Moses and her “What happened to your face” run-in with Snake years later. While Raiden’s and Grey Fox’s games would be Devil May Cry style action games, Meryl’s could stick to stealth or maybe try something completely new.
Konami certainly aren’t averse to whoring out the Metal Gear series. So maybe this stuff could happen. But then again, Kojima needs to walk away from the series soon.

Metal Gear Rising Shirts From UNIQLO
Popular Japanese clothing retailer UNIQLO are launching a Metal Gear Rising line on February 18th to celebrate the release of the game. These shirts are awesome. I love gaming shirts that are really nicely done.
UNIQLO has previously done other really great Metal Gear Solid related clothing. However with their only US shop being in New York City and with many of their MGS shirts hard to find online, you may have a bit of trouble getting one. However, if the rumors are true, a UNIQLO store will soon be opening in Philly.

14 Minutes Of In-Game Footage For Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes

I didn’t think it was possible to go through puberty twice in one lifetime, but I’m pretty sure my balls just dropped. Again.

It’s been confirmed that this is a prequel to Metal Gear Solid 4. What do you guys think?
