Originally teased a few days ago, here is the latest gameplay video for Dead Space 3, uncut.

We’ve seen the gameplay, but those of you who have been waiting to see just what the story was going to be for Metal Gear Rising Revengance, the wait is over.  Released at Tokyo Game Show 2012, this five-minute trailer is probably the most in-depth look at the game’s plot that we’ve seen at this point.  We also get a great look at the enemies and the allies that Raiden will have over the course of the game, and if you pay attention there are subtle nods to other games in the Metal Gear series.

Metal Gear Rising Revengance is coming February 2013 to PS3 and Xbox 360.  A demo will be included with Zone of Enders HD Collection.
