You can use Blade Mode to cut normal enemies open and get their electrolyte spines to recover health and blade mode, plus it also acts as an instant-kill should you be able to cut your enemy up accurately enough when they're weakened. You also get mad points for slicing an opponent into little bits and you get a good chunk of BP for slicing off their left arms. using it against bosses and stronger enemies recklessly though will get you nowhere, especially since regular slashes in blade mode do gently caress all damage to bosses.

I'm sorry, the correct answer is that blade mode allows you to cut a dude into 100+ pieces in less than a minute.

Also cancelling moves with a long windown I GUESS.

Oh right, I keep forgetting about Blade Cancelling even though I'm not totally sure if that's still going to be a thing in the final version or not.

For those that have watched the stream, did you see multi-zandatsus being performed with ease? It's the one thing from the demo that I sorely missed. I found myself in the situation of having multiple spines flying around and only being able to grab one constantly.

There's no reason it wouldn't be, really. Platinum's from the kind of stock that knows people like cancelling poo poo in their action games (reload cancelling and boost rolling in Vanquish, assorted sway dodge nonsense in God Hand, etc). Plus it just makes the game feel so very smooth, I can't imagine they'd ax it.

Yes, I've seen a guy grab three at once.

I hope they implement an extra mode like Devil May Cry 4's Heaven and Hell difficulty, where everything dies in one hit, including yourself. Although in this game you'd be slicing through enemies like in the original trailer. With one hit point of health, you'd also need to use stealth a lot more.

Garrett from Mega64 also made the costume that they used in their official Rising video. Although it's not as polished because of time constraints I guess.

Kojima Productions even made a short documentary explaining what went wrong with the original game and how they decided to collaborate with Platinum Games.

Going by the interviews with Platinum Games in this and the interviews with the staff in the Making Of documentaries for MGS2, it seems that everybody's first reaction to anything Kojima says is to assume he's joking.

Got it covered

Thought about holding out for a PSN release, but I gave in and pre-ordered from Amazon and shelled out for the release day shipping. All because of Platinum x Kojima awesomeness. Hoping the Grey Fox skin ends up as DLC in the future. Can't wait until Tuesday.

EDIT

Also fed my black t-shirt addiction by picking up the Desperado tee. Thanks, forgotten about GS points!

Peace Walker had its own store with some awesome and tasteful cloths including, weirdly, a leather jacket and pants. Nice to see it continue with Rising.

So, I just got my copy from my local street breaking store. I was going for the Grey Fox skin from Gamestop, but I could not hold out.

Word of warning: In the intro stage, before the demo begins, blade mode does not immediately cut dudes up except in prompts. If you tried blade mode without a full energy gauge in the demo, it is like that.

How does a game store get by breaking street dates these days anyway? Wouldn't their distributor just not do business with them anymore?

The street breaking store I go to (and got my copy at yesterday) doesn't give you a receipt if you buy it from them before the street date. As for the distributor... beats me. They've been doing this for years, apparently. Independent stores gotta stay competitive with Gamestops somehow.

Oh, so they sell it completely off the books? That's...uh, a bigger problem than just with their distributor I think.

No, they probably do a bunch of "cash transactions" on the actual release date to keep everything on the up-and-up.

I got my copy, too. None of the stores in my country care about street dates so they just started selling copies today.

Well, I've sent Konami messages via email and Twitter to get the last word on whether or not the plasma lamp has a universal power adapter. I can't believe they're not legally required to put this info wherever the thing is sold, since it's the difference between having to buy one of these:
