Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Producer Says It's A True Metal Gear Game

Posted on Saturday, October 27 @ 08:59:34 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance a true Metal Gear title? That's debateable, but its developer confidently thinks so.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance's Producer, Yuji Korekado, is convinced that his upcoming game displays the important qualities that Metal Gear fans look for. 

Surprisingly, this demo shown for the first time and is the culmination of our art and story direction, and Platinum's design. We have the feeling that we have together made something great. We can only oppose those who say that this is not a Metal Gear game.

The big detail that he doesn't appear to be considering is that Metal Gear fans—such as myself—are attracted to the series for its stealth and espionage. There are thousands of games out there that put you in the role of a cool guy who destroys everything in his path for the greater good, but there are only a few that let you do it without getting your hands dirty.

However, that isn't to say that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn't going to be excellent. Actually, if you've been following our impressions over the past year—podcasts, writeups, etc.—you're well aware that we anticipate it greatly.

A stealth game isn't in Platinum Games' blood; it excels at high-octane action with flashy visuals and regular an unrivaled level of intensity . That's exactly what the Metal Gear franchise is going to be exposed to with this upcoming game, and it just might provoke some of the most epic metal gear battles of all-time.
