Opinion Trailer What The Hell Happened In Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance? - The Full Story

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may not have been "A Hideo Kojima Game", and it may not have been the tactical espionage action experience that the Metal Gear series built its identity around, but PlatinumGames' action title was an excellent game nonetheless, and one that its fans still look back on fondly.

The game's biggest hook, of course, was its fast paced slicing and dicing action, and for good reason – there's nothing else quite like a good combat system made by Platinum – but true to the Metal Gear series, it also had a really engaging story. Not as heavily cinematic maybe, and definitely much sillier in tone (which is really saying something), but more than serviceable at what it set out to do. And here, we're going to take a look at that story, as we recount its most major events from beginning to end.

Truly when Metal Gear jumped the shark.

It wasn't the spirit medium psyops soldier? Or the chick that couldn't get hit with bullets because of an EM field that was controlled by a device another person was holding onto? Or a middle aged man swallowing and regurgitating his cigarettes to bring on a spy mission where the scent of tobacco would be an instant giveaway? Or the guy who got his boss' arm transplanted onto him and was possessed by his spirit but jk no he wasn't because he went through willing hypnotherapy to convince himself he was possessed to fool an AI system that ran the world? Or the cyborg S&M ninja who dated an Olympic ice skater? Or fucking like ANYTHING? It was MGR?

Look, I LOVE Metal Gear, Kojima is the father of my children, after all. But let's not pretend this shit was Shakespeare and Rian Johnson made a Platinum Games sequel to subvert our expectations. This shit was embedded like a sopository straight in the fudge coated colon of our expectations. This was our expectations - kaioken x 15.
