Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Videos Showcase Dazzling Action

This week Konami held a special press event in which the media was invited to try out a near finished version of Metal Gear Rising: Revenganvce. Of course the staff of Shogun Gamer weren’t invited to try things out, but that won’t stop us from providing you fine readers with the array of new media from the game which reaches all sorts of levels in the badass department.

Bayonetta Set To Appear In The Western Release Of Anarchy Reigns

It may have taken roughly a year and a half for the game to finally hit our shores, but the brawler that is Anarchy Reigns is still a thing that will actually see the light of day.  Gamers in Japan may have been lucky to have the game since July, yet for some reason Sega decided to delay the game from releasing in the west until 2013, January 2013 to be exact as per the last major update that was given.

UK Gamers Receiving Metal Gear Rising Limited Edition

There is hope for Metal Gear fans after all as Konami has just revealed the European Limited Edition SKUs for Metal Gear Rising.  If you recall, last week Konami unveiled not just one but two exquisite CE’s for Rising which traded in tacky accessories for stylish things such as nice packaging and a rather kick-ass Raiden figure.  Thought had it that Konami wouldn’t bring either of those packages to Western markets, but today we stand corrected.

Konami Unveils Amazing Premium Packages For Metal Gear Rising

It’s always interesting to see how a publisher will not only market a game in the Western and Eastern markets, but to see what sort of specialty SKU they’ll release as well.  At this point gamers in the West are used to seeing sometimes sophisticated premium packages released in Japan that are amazing in every way and easily justify the high price tags that are attached.  

Anarchy Reigns May Finally Have A NA Release Date/Price

At long last a North American release date may have finally been given to the Platinum Games produced multiplayer brawler that is Anarchy Reigns. There may be a sense of déjà vu with this news considering that we’ve already had two “release window” confirmations for Anarchy Reigns, but this latest date for the game could be the one that sticks.

As much as TGS is associated with the PlayStation brand, gamers also think of Metal Gear Solid once September rolls around.  Konami and Kojima Productions may share some Metal Gear love to other industry events such as E3, but TGS is usually the one place in which we can look forward to receiving a somewhat excessively long trailer that ends with a comedic stinger.  Such a tradition still holds true for TGS 2012 as we have an extended, and rather revealing, look at Metal Gear Rising.

Konami Packs In Metal Gear Demo With Zone of the Enders Once Again

Konami is keeping the tradition alive pertaining to the Zone of the Ender and Metal Gear franchises. As veteran gamers know, when the first Zone of the Enders game was released on the PS2 back in 2001 it included the first and only public demo of MGS2: Sons of Liberty. Back in the day before demos were made available on a near weekly basis thanks to digital distribution, receiving a demo packed in with a game was a big deal, thus ZoE was bought by gamers merely to get a taste of MGS2.

Anarchy Reigns Receives New Western Release Window

Usually I like to question the business practices of certain video game publishers as some truly idiotic moves can be made. Things like not promoting a game to its fullest (I’m looking at you Sony), or a publisher essentially sending a game to die in a crowded release window are just some of the things that slowly result in gamers getting pissed off in one way or another. But on this fairly easy going Monday some news has arisen that may please those who have been looking forward to Anarchy Reigns.

Metal Gear Rising Live-Action Video Redefines The Meaning Of Cheesy

With E3 creeping ever so closer more and more developers are starting to reveal their projects. We’ve already seen Sony go buck wild by announcing God of War: Ascension along with dropping the mega bomb that it’ll feature a major multiplayer component.  I don’t know if everyone is planning to blow their proverbial wad prior to E3 in order to get the jump on everyone and not be outshone come next month, but in the end that simply means more goodness for gamers.

Anarchy Reigns Gets Three New Character Additions

Absent from any kind of public or tradeshow spotlight since E3 last year, Anarchy Reigns is indeed still coming out this year as it was spared in the great Sega Slaughter of 2012.  The multiplayer based brawler may be one of the many games that will slip under the radar of people for a variety of different reasons, but for those out there who haven’t forgotten about the game you may be happy to see this update.
