With Platinum Games involved in its development, my expectations for the action in "Metal Gear Rising Revengeance" have been set high--perhaps unreasonably high. I consider their "Bayonetta" to be the high water mark of character action games for this console generation, but it might not be fair to hold "MGRR" to the same standard--they're playing with Kojima Productions' toys now and there were some definite ideas about the game in place before Platinum Games swooped in to save Raiden's solo adventure from the chopping block.
Anyway, you can also check out the sweet-looking images from the upcoming PlayArts Kai Raiden figure on the way in February. These have popped up online in the past, but as we get closer to the release of the game, it's nice to remember that you can totally have your own Raiden on his tippy toes getting ready to kick in your house.
