OXM video exclusive - Matt and Log play Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

10 minutes of Metal Gear hack and slash, with commentary

According to Klingons, vengeance is a dish best served cold. But how should we serve revengeance? Over a bed of grilled artichokes? In a sesame seed bun? Or perhaps with a thick dressing of insight and frivolity, prepared by two men wearing headset mics who are absolutely nuts about melons.

Our latest video exclusive sees Matt and Log going head to head with Metal Gear Rising, the game Kojima Productions failed to make which was saved by a last minute appeal to Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames. There's much to discuss - insertion sequences, VR cubes, Raiden's cyborg underbite - but the key thing is cutting. There are very few things that can't be sliced and diced in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The incredibly verbose script appears to be one of them.

We've got around 11 minutes of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance gameplay footage and commentary here, with another Part 2 down to appear over the weekend. Have a listen and let us know what you think. Latest preview write-up here.

Update: Part 2 is live, and the swinging is sweet. Watch it below.
