The E3 trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes all of the wrong steps with its over the top intro, horrid music, and preachy prologue. It seems that even with new developer Platinum Games at the helm, the same tired and overly philosophical messages of MGS have carried over.
I was in the vast minority of people that actually like Raiden as a character when he debuted in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. I never did get to play Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, so I'm a bit out of the loop with Metal Gear. While I don't know that I have the energy to endure another sermon for Pastor Kojima, I'll try anything from the team that created the incredible Bayonetta.
