MGS4 Raiden and Crying Wolf by Hax09 MGS4 Raiden and Crying Wolf by Hax09
So many MGS fans across the world were left baffled by the picture showing Raiden on Crying Wolf from Konami's keynote speech.

[link]

So inspired by that cool image I decided to create something similar using my Wacom Graphics Tablet.

:)

P.S My theory is that, as a shocking surprise, Metal Gear Solid Rising will take place before, DURING AND AFTER the events of MGS4... Hence explaining how Raiden and Crying Wolf cross paths.. You heard it here first... either that or Hideo Kojima thought the two together just looked awesome as a picture...

Is that really the name given to it? (or are you messing around and I'm just too stupid to realise ;))

To be honest I haven't checked any updates for Rising in a long time now. I only just got back from Spain on holiday and found out that there's going to be a new installment in the MGS franchise (Ground Zeroes) It makes me wonder how long other fans knew about this before I found out. I really need to get back on track with Metal Gear updates :D

gracefuldemon Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Student Writer
Oh my!
Everyone has known about the new instalment for the Solid series for a while now... You really need to update. And there is a bunch of stuff from the last E3 show about Rising. New awesome trailer, new awesome (yet too short) gameplay footage, etc.
Well, its name is too complicated (a bunch of numbers and so):giggle:, by the end of the new trailer they just call it Canine Thousand. :XD:

I know about the E3 updates for Rising. I just didn't have time to check them out. But Ground Zeroes totally flew by me. I must find out everything I can about it !!!

Why feel ashamed? Just because you couldn't check it, it doesn't mean you're not interested in it. ;)
I honestly am not interested in another game with Big Boss. :ashamed:
Give me Revengeance! (I have even gotten used to the bloody name :XD:)

*reads the comments above hers* AND WHAT IS THIS ABOUT NOT LIKING MGS2 RAIDEN? *shakes you violently*
He is the same!

HAHA!
Yeah I was okay with MGS2 Raiden before but I recently replayed MGS2 on HD Collection and realised just how whiny and inexperienced he was. I guess standing next to someone like Snake throughout the game doesn't exactly help. But my feelings changed in MGS4 completely. I thought he was one of the best characters on there (part of the reason I painted him of course)

I'm quite the opposite to be honest. I want more games with Big Boss in them. Ever since Snake Eater I have been really interested in learning more about Big Boss. I wish they remake Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 for PS3. I'm interested to see how the likes of Frank Jaeger and young Solid Snake would look in clean detailed PS3 graphics :D

P.S Revengeance isn't the best name to be honest. What was wrong with Rising?

I fell in love with Raiden in MGS2 (my first MGS experience) and honestly, if he hadn't been so inexperienced I would not have bonded with his character. Whatever most people hate about him, I love. :)

Meh... I don't really want remakes of the old Metal Gear games... I am looking ahead and readying myself to accept what they plan on giving us in the near future.

Kojima is planing to give Raiden his own series; Rising fit him better than Solid. Revengeance is but a subtitle; it may not be the best name but, in truth, a name matters little. If the result is good people will put the awkward word aside and enjoy the game itself.

Good point. Ask me before 1998 what I thought of characters with names like Snake, Liquid, Ocelot and Psycho Mantis and I would have said those names were absurd. But that's the magic of Metal Gear. Over the years they've come up with strange names and characters but that just goes to show how much we care about the idea, not the name it goes by.

It would be really cool if there is one part in the game you face off with the others and Raiden and Wolf facing them off together, Raiden riding her as he cut through the wave of enemies :D

Raiden and Crying Wolf teaming up would be amazing. I doubt anyone could beat that partnership in combat. Unfortunately my fantasies rarely come true so I'm guessing its basic good guy fights bad guy (girl?)

MGSR is already confirmed to take place between MGS2 and MGS4, roughly in the timeframe when he was on his missions to infiltrate Area 51 to recover Sunny and Big Boss.

What's interesting to note, and what nobody seems to have made the connection about, is that on a map in MGS4, the Werewolf PMC was shown to be stationed in Nevada. That's where Area 51 is.

Since many of the enemies in Rising will be cyborgs, and we've already seen Crying Wolf in that teaser, it only makes sense that you'll be crossing paths with Werewolf troops a lot, since they're in charge of most of the technology in MGS4.

Hax09 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I didn't realise that. And it makes sense because Raiden went to Area 51 to rescue Sunny. That's where he must have encountered Crying Wolf. Remembering that the patriots, who own the base, must have created these B&B Corps (and to mirror reality, Area 51 is supposed to be a government base involved with production of top secret high tech engineering)

That's a pretty cool connection Metal Gear made... Using Area 51's reputation of secrecy for their own fictional secret society.... :)

Thanks for making that connection Amaranth-Sparrow.... Now I'm all excited about missions in Nevada ! I-WANT-THIS-GAME !
