  • Khamsin, the only desperado member that didn’t appear in the main game. Cool, looking forward to it.

    Only if it’s free. I got suckered in with the VR mission pack. It was a payed DLC in EU so f*ck Konami, I’m not buying any more DLCs from you. Not for MGR:R…

    • Armane

      How did you get suckered in by paid DLC?

      • Tom

        It was announced weeks before release and was told that it’s gonna be free for a short period. I really wanted to play the VR mission levels because I beat all the VR levels in MGS1 and 2. And the day came, went on PSN and found that it’s not free. Only free in the US. I got pissed off but I wanted to play the levels at the same time so I bought it. On top of that, the levels are not as enjoyable… So that’s why I decided I’m not going to buy any more DLCs for Rising. I bought the game first day, I payed a LOT for it and I generally hate DLCs it’s like they want to get more and more money for less content. What once was a unlockable in a game by completing certain objectives now a payable stuff. And that’s just cheap towards loyal fans.

        • Armane

          You realise MGS: VR Missions was £20 for 300 missions right? MGR’s mission pack was £2 for 30. So it’s the same. And Substance had you buying the entire game again.

          It was only free in the US, and it was only free because Sony paid for exclusivity.

          When were VR missions unlockable?

          • Tom

            I bought VR missions for $10 some months ago. You’ll never get these DLCs any cheaper.
            I don’t mean VR missions is unlockable. I mean that many stuff that were unlockables in video games that are payed DLCs today. And THAT is a big problem. But I assume you like DLCs so we’ll never understand each other.

          • Armane

            There is a lot of bad practice with DLC; I would say that Rising’s DLC does not come under that umbrella (ignoring the costumes). I’m a fan of the game so I thought the VR missions were worth buying. If they release more content I’ll probably buy that too.

            VR Missions is like 14 years old now. So it stands to reason that you could now get it cheaper. But the Sony and Microsoft online stores do have price drops, or sales. So you might be able to get it cheaper in the future as well. Or they might release a bundle or a GOTY edition with all the DLC included or a Substance-esque version with more content.

            Anyway my point was it seems weird to complain about something Konami have been doing for years. But to each their own.

    Metal Gear: Okami

    I’m curious to see how Wolf play in this one.

    Haven’t got Jetstream Sam DLC yet but I read that his playstyle is way different to Raiden. To anyone who got it, is it worth the purchase?

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      It’s the same as playing Sonic & Knuckles with Knuckles.

    • Ferrick

      i’m guessing its like okami only difference is that your paintbrush is a chainsaw ? XD

    • Definitely not worth 10 bucks, but Sam himself plays very differently from Raiden. Sam has a double jump, an air dash, and his parry and block windows are shorter. He also has a taunt button, which enrages enemies but they’re more aggressive and you take damage from just blocking. Finally, he has a lot less moves, but all of his attacks can be charged.

      He’s basically Vergil with less moves if Raiden is Dante.

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        Vergil was easier than Dante. Sam is a lot harder than Raiden since he has a bad defence.

    • AkuLord3

      I say its worth to buy…its less stuff for 10 dollars but Sam is really fun to play with so adds challenge. Adds more fun content to the game

  • SirRichard

    Here’s hoping they put more work into this one than they did with Sam’s. While he played just different enough from Raiden, his DLC was basically the levels and bosses from the game rearranged a bit with new cutscenes thrown in.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Guess Wolf will be a more stealthy character in the same way Sam was a melee character. Guess Raiden was the balanced one.

  • Ben Chau

    Time to leave them all behiiiiiiiind!

    • Sperium3000

      Break out of my pain!

  • Cameron Ward

    how much?

    • z_merquise

      According to a couple of sites I checked, it’s $7.

      • TiamatNM

        Yet the Sam dlc was $10..

        • z_merquise

          I remember some sites first stating that Sam DLC is $7 but it’s actually $10 during release. Better to just wait and see then.

  • Neophoton

    Zoids in my Metal Gear? …It seems rather fun.

  • Vash bane

    O_O time for to buy this game I was waiting for this.
