    My cyborg body is ready!

    I just hope I can find R1 copy of the game here in my place so things won’t get complicated for me if ever I’ll get any DLC that interests me.

    Also wish the game to be a success in terms of sales because I really want Platinum to have another big sales hit besides Bayonetta.

      Im thinking this one will do just fine lol.

      Unless you pre-ordered at Gamestop then your might be doing a midnight launch for it like mine is.

  • TiredOfMyOldUsername

    Really surprising to see 2 PSP games released on the same day in NA O.O
    I didn’t thought something like that would happen again.

      btw do you know what is said when Raiden does that? I’ve been trying to figure it out for a very long time… (I know there is a time where one of the guy says Bulls eye)

    Persona 4 Golden at last, just when I’ve not the time to get stuck in. Definitely getting Rising now, but it’s going to be sitting around for a few weeks before I can get to it.

    And I only just found out that Atlus published Growlanser IV and Gungnir on the Euro PSN recently and then didn’t tell anyone about it (or I somehow completely missed it), it’s going to be a great year for JRPGs.

      grats =P, p4g is definitely one of the best things to happen on vita, so hope you enjoy it

  • KingGunblader

    I wasn’t into Metal Gear Rising, but I played the demo last week and I’m in. Too bad I’m not gonna get the Grey Fox costume.

    Let’s hope the reviews on this game (Metacritic, IGN, Gamespot, Gameinformer, eurogamer etc.) are at least positive to this new style of Metal Gear and Raiden’s own spin-off story.
