Introduction



Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an action game along the lines of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry, developed by both Kojima Productions and Platinum Games. It's pretty much the best game ever because you can throw snakes at the faces of guys and they wrassle with 'em cut a man into a thousand pieces and then tear out his cyborg spine and eat it.

This game was originally titled Metal Gear Solid: Rising and was going to be an open world game that took place between Metal Gear Solid 2 and 4 and would explain how Raiden came to become a cyborg and how he rescued Sunny from the Patriots. The game was being worked on by a new team formed in Kojima Productions. Kojima had hoped to eventually pass the Metal Gear series on to them so he could work on other games, but the team could not agree on a unified vision for the game. It was canned after a few years of work until Platinum Games was brought into the mix. They retooled the game into a fast-paced action game along the line of their other games, like Bayonetta and Vanquish. At this point the game was renamed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and the game was moved to take place four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4 in order to distance itself from the absurd amount of continuity going on in the main Metal Gear Solid series.

Revengeance may be a spin-off series, but it is still canon. The events of this game are loosely tied to previous games in the series, but you do not need to know too much about the series to appreciate this game's plot. All you really need to know is that there was a big group of AIs known as The Patriots running the world, and then Raiden helped destroy them. Oh, and there was some guy named "Solid Snake" or something.

THREAD ADVICE
1) I would really appreciate it if people keep future plot points/bosses/set pieces/songs unspoiled, because this game is fuckin' nuts and going into this game fresh is amazing.
2) I would also appreciate it if people do not quote any of the game's memorable/funny lines until they happen because this game is crazy.
3) Be very, very careful watching these videos if you watch them directly on Youtube. Tons and tons of people have posted the songs/cutscenes for the final boss of this game and almost all of the videos have a picture of the final boss right in the thumbnail of the video. Some of them also have the name of the final boss in the title. So just never look at the related videos.
