360 Metal Gear Solid Rising announced...starring Raiden?!

I had no interest in this, and then my MGS fanboy took over and I picked it up. Will get back with thoughts.

EDIT: Ok... First impressions: best title screen ever. Presentation is slick and very Metal-Gear-ey. Digging the action a lot so far. Camera sucks during boss fights, and non-cancel-able combos=lots of accidental deaths. Some of the special moves have made my inner sadist giggle.

I eagerly look forward to playing this once my pile has shrunk further. Until then, people here should record/post some combo videos!

Hm. Im going to restart from the beginning on normal rather than hard, which is what I usually play these kinds of games on. So far, the camera is borderline terrible, the controls are a little clunky due to long un-cancel-able combos and other factors, and the difficulty is wayyy high. I hope normal is more reasonable given the shoddy mechanics. No doubt the spectacle is here in full force, though.

I was really enjoying this until the final boss battle. I've been doing it for over an hour and a half. Actually had it beat once but screwed up the qte.

It actually wouldn't be that bad, but I have no health packs going into the fight.

Edit: finally.

Part of it was my fault... I actually played for probably 3-4 hours before I realized I had healing items in my inventory. D:

I've played the first two chapters. Right now I'm not feeling that it's that good. I've been getting more comfortable with the controls, but I don't really like the free cutting and combat in general.

I was surprised there wasn't a catch-all created for this yet, so... http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/114447
