Fans of Metal Gear Rising received new artwork rather than a remaster

How about some fresh artwork from the developers of the game instead of a PS5, PS4 remaster for the 10th anniversary of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance? In fact, Platinum Games has created a blog post where you can check out some fresh illustrations inspired by the PS3 game as well as a message from the game’s director Kenji Saito. For many fans, the news will come as a disappointment because there was no mention of a remake, remaster, or even a re-release.

Saito expresses gratitude to the audience for its support of the game over the past ten years. He said, “My most recent memory of anything to do with the game, ten years after the game’s release, is seeing Armstrong and Sam appear in so many memes globally. It seems surreal that MGR: R is still being discussed ten years later. The director then remarks on how the number of players has grown over time, calling it “truly moving stuff.”

The Platinum Games team, including Tomoko Nishii, Kenichirou Yoshimura, and Kana Yamamoto, then shares some fresh artwork in the blog post. A few of the illustrations are embedded below; click on them to see them in their entirety.

Jamie Christopherson, the game’s music composer, provided a message to cap off today’s 10th anniversary celebrations. He expresses his gratitude to the audience once more and says he’s “I’m pleasantly surprised that the game and soundtrack have remained popular, and that players from all over the world have continued to admire and play them. I have personally enjoyed seeing all of the hilarious memes, reaction videos, and song covers that we created for the game. It means a lot to me to know that the game and music have made so many people happy.”

Since there is no mention of a re-release anywhere in PlatinumGames’ blog post, any hopes and dreams for a Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance remaster are likely over at this point. It appears that this is all that Raiden’s voice actor Jack Flynn was alluding to when he previously teased “things to be announced in the coming weeks.” Unless the Japanese developer is hiding a new surprise. But at this point, it seems unlikely, so you’ll have to settle for some fresh art.

At least, do you like the drawings?

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
