If you ever had any doubts as to how bad-ass Raiden was, Hot Toys' upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Raiden 1:6 scale figure should put those claims to rest.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
With Thanksgiving and Black Friday coming up, we'd love to have the abilities (and arms), of the Cosplay of the Week, Mistral from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Those extra appendages would make it that much easier to swipe all of the delicious food and tastier sales.
Konami and Platinum have teamed for yet another installment of downloadable content for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. While the first add-on gave us a chance to play as antagonist Jetstream Sam, this new content features Raiden's computerized canine companion, LQ-84i (aka Blade Wolf). Those hoping for a more engaging or robust experience than was previously delivered in the Jetstream Sam DLC should look elsewhere, as Blade Wolf is another incredibly short and unsatisfying addition to MGR.
Though Raiden's adventure may be over, Platinum Games and Konami are keeping Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance going with new downloadable content featuring some of his co-stars. The first add-on gives us a look at Desperado assassin Jetstream Sam, and tells the story of how he came to be a mercenary for hire. Unfortunately, it's not a very interesting tale.
