In Revengeance, the alert sound is a call to action Set after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Revengeance sticks Metal Gear Solid 2 lead Raiden in the middle of a globetrotting battle with the flamboyant supersoldiers of Desperado Enforcement, uncovering a bizarre military conspiracy. Initially unprepared, Raiden finds himself personally invested in taking down Desperado and its politically connected backers. While providing some narrative context to Raiden's background as a child soldier, Revengeance also realizes the gameplay possibilities of his transformation into a cyborg ninja. In a lot of ways, it's the antithesis of the stealth-based Metal Gear games of the past. Previous Metal Gear heroes Snake and Big Boss were known for their ability...

A bug that caused the Windows PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to work only with an accompanying internet connection has been sqashed, a representative from Konami told Polygon. The game was "fixed and patched last night," the rep said. According to tweets Steven Key, the European brand manager for Kojima Productions, new downloads will not need the fix. Files will be replaced for those who downloaded the game before the patch. Those who purchased the game when it was released earlier this week took to NeoGAF and the Steam forums, reporting that the game would not run without an internet connection. For more on the action spinoff of the stealth franchise, you can read and watch our review of the console version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

The Windows PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may be outfitted with always-online DRM, although the online requirement may also result from a bug in the game, according to reports on NeoGAF and in reviews on Steam. Konami released the PC port of Revengeance today, and its Steam listing makes no mention of an online requirement. But disgruntled Steam users are giving the game negative reviews, citing the apparent presence of always-online DRM. "This game will not run without an internet connection. And unless your internet connection is completely stable it also doesn't work. Try opening it without an internet connection and it [immediately] closes. When my internet connection drops out while playing, the game instantly bombs out," said Steam user TescoValueName. "Looks...

Konami is slashing the price of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, from its original price down to $29.99, the publisher announced today, and including the game's two downloadable add-ons as part of the new package.

Blade Wolf was released the following month for $6.99, giving players control of the mechanized wolf LQ-84i. Those add-ons appear to retain their original pricing on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace, where Revengeance's reduced price is not currently reflected. Konami's announcement unfortunately did not...

On the official Metal Gear website, Konami is linking to a survey that asks fans for their opinions on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, including what they'd like to see in a sequel if one were in development. The extensive poll asks fans of the Metal Gear series and Revengeance why they liked or disliked certain aspects of the Platinum Games-developed spin-off, including characters, boss fights, mechanics and the cyborg enemies players can slice up. Players are asked whether or not they enjoyed the humor, stealth elements, straightforward plot and Raiden as a character. If a sequel to Metal Gear Rising was available, Konami asks, what would players expect from the game? Up for consideration are human enemies (instead of cyborgs), online multiplayer modes, a sequel or prequel to the...

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the latest entry in the long-running Metal Gear series, is available now as part of Xbox 360's Games on Demand, Konami announced via press release. The game is available for $49.99. Players will also be able to download the game's Cyborg Ninja Armor Skin, the Fox Blade White Armor Skin and Inferno Armor Skin, as well as downloadable content Jetstream and Blade Wolf. Kojima Productions producer Yuji Korekado recently said that Revengeance was not released in Japan on the Xbox 360 because the console isn't popular enough in the region. Earlier this month, franchise creator Hideo Kojima announced that the Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection would not be released for Xbox 360 due to Metal Gear Solid 4's data size.
