Bayonetta PS3 port is Platinum's 'biggest failure'

By Alice O'Connor, Sep 26, 2012 8:15am PDT

Platinum Games' Bayonetta is a masterful joining of splendid face-kicking action and absurd, guns-on-heels, hair-as-clothes, disco-dancing stylings. The PlayStation 3 edition, however, was a bit shoddy, plagued with longer load times, lower framerate, and worse textures than...

When Konami originally announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance at E3 2009 under the more sensible name of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, it planned to release a PC edition. This was casually dropped when the game was reborn

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer teaches slicing and dicing

The big gimmick of awkwardly-named, action-packed off-shoot Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is Raiden's ability to carefully prune enemies of undesirable body parts with precision strokes of his sword. Have a gander at how it works in a new snippet from the game's tutorial.


"It's being made by Platinum Games with Kenji Saito at the helm, so, yes."

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

I cut clean through the top half of a man's head. It was a genuinely uncomfortable sight--and only the beginning of the hyper-violence featured in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
