'Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance' Lets You Customize Your Dismemberment

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is going to have plenty of jumping, sneaking and slicing guys up into party platter sized cubes, but did you know it’s also going to have some RPG elements? You’re going to be able to equip all sorts of weapons, upgrade your skills and so on — nice to know we’ll be getting some depth with our absurd violence.

Hit the jump for a couple videos that detail Metal Gear Rising’s skill upgrades and weapon types…

So yeah, incredibly unfortunate title aside, this game is looking pretty damn good isn’t it? Platinum Games’ stuff usually feels a bit underbaked — as an independent developer they just don’t have a lot of extra time or money to lavish on their games. But a Metal Gear game? I think they’re going to get the opportunity to polish that up nice.

Oh, and hey, here’s an older trailer we never posted that gives you a taste of the game’s suitably wacky storyline…

You know, sometimes I think video games need to grow up and scale back on the violence, but thankfully every once in a while a Metal Gear Rising comes along and sets me straight.
