Now that Zone of the Enders was a mess on PS3, I fear for Metal Gear Rising

god, platinum games is so overrated

the only reason vanquish was excusable was because i borrowed it from the library for free. game is shorter than a CoD campaign, has no multiplayer, and has the worst writing and voice acting ever. eff that


Contra has a shorter campaign and only local 2 player co op. What a terrible game that was.


local 2 player co-op is better than nothing lol


My point is, a short campaign has nothing to do with the quality of the game. Vanquish...like Contra, is a quick balls out actiony shooter thats like a modern version of games like Contra and Metal Slug. Meant to be enjoyed in a quick session and replayed over and over to improve your skills.

While Co-op would've been nice, it still stands on its own as a great and well polished title.

It's safe to say you have horrible tastes in games as well.


I've actually posted rather lengthy arguments for why I don't like the games. Well, for MGS3 is more of a matter of taste. But MGS4 is truly paced horribly up till the point that if you think anything differently, you should take your head out of Kojima's behind. It's not a bad game overal due to solid mechanics, it's just horribly designed.

It's one of my most replayed games on the ps3 (MGS4), so no. And playing it on boss extreme difficulty is a joy.

Unlike some idiots, I'm glad Platinum didn't force multiplayer into Vanquish. The game clearly shines in single player and its obvious mp would have dragged the quality down. Not every game needs to shoe horn in mp if it doesn't belong.

okay so instead of being lazy they should have added more levels and maybe improved the quality of the writing and the voice acting

6 hours for a single-player only game is unacceptable these days unless it's like a mad cheap indie game

The voice acting was good for what it was, a jab at western military shooters.

6 hours may be short but when its the most over the top balls out and innovate TPS in years, its hard to complain. Vanquish 2 would have been great seeing as it ends on a cliffhanger but too bad it'll never happen since Vanquish flopped and Mikami left Platinum.

lol what's so innovative about it? the fact that you can slow down time? please

it wasn't a jab at western military shooters, and if it was, it should've been a funnier one. the real problem was that the devs treated it like a saturday morning animu cartoon from the 90s or something. burns had the most annoying voice and lines ever. and how the hell was he in a relationship with the president. wtf

terrible story 0/10

I get annoyed at long games sometimes. That's why I still play games like Radiant Silvergun to this day. Because some games just don't need to be long, just deliver exhilarating action over a short period of time, which is what vanquish achieves.

The only game Kojima has 100% say over is Ground Zeroes. He only checks in on things like MGR and ZOE HD every few months. They weren't his projects.


Even more reason to be wary.


Yet you have no problem spending $150 on something that you are unsure about.


That plasma lamp looks damn sexy though, and I love Metal Gear collectibles.

My Metal Gear shrine...

I want that plasma lamp right in the middle of there.

Since Metal Gear Sucks, so your shrine makes me want to throw up on your hair.
