Alphabetical aggression personified, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, available on the Xbox 360 and PS3, has lowered its price point to a very generous $29.99. At the same time, two pieces of DLC, Jetstream and Blade Wolf (what you're smelling now is burning cerebral cortex), have had their price points chopped up into dust by cyborg ninjas. In other words: they're now free.
The Jetstream DLC tackles the tale of Samuel "cool Brazillian wind" Rodriguez and his conflict with "World Marshall" in Denver, Colorado.
Meanwhile, Blade Wolf features LQ-84i and tells his (its?) story prior to joining Raiden and becoming the titular Blade Wolf.
