In July 2022,
After a long time of not playing games at all last year, I decided to relax by playing a game, continue developing my hobby site, and watching some movies in my spare time.
But during the gameplay, I faced the error BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) Driver Power State Failure, which I posted on here (How to Solve Power State Failure Nvidia BSOD Windows 10).
So, what game did I play?
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
In case you didn't know the game before, it is an old action hack and slash game (2013). Metal Gear Rising Revengeance was developed by PlatinumGames and Kojima Productions and published by Konami Digital Entertainment. A Spin-off in the Metal Gear series.
This game focuses on fighting enemies using swords and other weapons to perform combos and counterattacks.
Raiden is a cyber ninja (or like a cyborg ninja) and fights some enemies who were cybernetic people or cyber-mecha too like Cybernetics Police, Cyborg Dog, Half Brazilian Japanese cyborg ninja, and a politician.
This game sounds like every 90's kid's dream:
Robot cyborg ninja fights giant laser-shooting mechs while a man with comically oversized muscles tries to take over the world.
This game become a hit recently (or more like a 'comeback') proven by Google Trends
Maybe because some people make a meme of it on youtube. Like Monsoon (one of the bosses in this game) said: We are all pawns, controlled by something greater: Memes. The DNA of the soul. 🌟
So I decided to play it, it takes maybe around 12 hours to beat the main story, although howlongtobeat.com said the game can be completed in only 7 hours 🤯
I really recommended this game 10/10 because :
- Stunning tutorial mode 😂
- Good soundtrack game (game music) 👌
- Good game story (if you compare it with some 2013 games, in my opinion: this one is the shortest game story). 🤙
- Cyborg Ninja with high-frequency katana. with cool combos. 🗡️️
- Badass villains 🐱👤🤖🔥
- Best meme so far 🤣
If you wondering why I put the word
stunning on tutorial mode, you may watch this gameplay :
Stunning tutorial mode
If someone ever asks you what MG Rising is about, just send this video without any explanation 😂
Good soundtrack game
"Being a hack-n-slash game, the tempo and energy had to be extremely high in Revengeance. The trick was to have the whole soundtrack be energetic without being overwhelming to listen to" said Jamie Christopherson in GameZone interview
All of this game's soundtrack matched each boss and perfectly sync with the bosses action, so here is my favorite list:
- Rules of Nature (⚔️ Metal Gear RAY)
- Collective Consciousness (⚔️ Metal Gear EXCELSUS)
- The Only Thing I Know For Real (⚔️ Jetstream Sam)
- It Has To Be This Way (⚔️ Senator Armstrong)
The popular one is It Has To Be This Way, you might probably already heard the lyrics somewhere on the Internet before :
Standing here, I realize you were
Just like me trying to make history.
But who's to judge the right from wrong.
When our guard is down I think we'll both agree.
That violence breeds violence.
But in the end it has to be this way.
Badass villains 🐱👤🤖🔥
Like I said before, this game has badass villains.
My favorite one is Jetstream Sam (Half Brazilian Japanese cyborg ninja) with his sword named Murasama. He is the only one who literally can double jump in this game. You can play as him on DLC game.
And the best part is memes, the original meme explained and reviewed by Know your Meme YT Channel :
The original extended version :
it becomes the worldwide official song of super fast punching theme and many youtubers made awesome memes with it, such as :
or this one
If you have played this game before, you can be understood what this meme means 😂
Anyway, thank you for reading my blog!
