Kojima: Metal Gear Rising “Looking Good” on PC
At first there was a PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Then there wasn’t. Then there was again. Thankfully, Konami has stopped flip-flopping, and according to Hideo Kojima himself, the PC version of Rising is “looking good.”
Bit of a tangent, but I’ve got to say that revengeance is my all-time favorite combination of two related words — revenge and vengeance. When revenge isn’t good enough, and vengeance doesn’t quite satisfy, go for revengeance.
Last we heard from Konami in June, the PC version of MGR: Reveangeance was “coming soon.” We still don’t know exactly when “soon” is, but we can at least get a peek at Rising on PC thanks to Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima.
In a post on Kojima’s Twitter account, he noted, “Rising PC version looking good. Even the shadows look beautiful.” He also attached a snapshot he took of his monitor (sadly, no actual HD screenshot):
Konami Europe retweeted the message, and the publisher was immediately inundated with PC release date questions. Their response: “It’s on the way. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we have more details.”
So we still don’t know when, but we do know it should be fast and pretty. When Konami officially confirmed the PC version of MGR: Revengeance in May, it noted, “The in-game technology will push the boundaries of graphics, style and lightning-speed action at a blistering 60FPS on most modern PCs.” Nice.
And I am totally going to chop that palm tree down.
