Sundowner by ToastieMan Sundowner by ToastieMan
"Like I said, kids are cruel, Jack.
And I'm very in touch with my inner child."

Metal Gear Rising is a game that if you haven't played, and you play video games, you probably should really go play it. It's rad as hell.

This jolly fellow is Sundowner, one of the primary antagonists of said game. I enjoyed his character so darn much, so I drew a picture! I'm sure I messed up here and there in getting the model perfectly accurate but I had a good time of doing it just the same.

Sundowner is a letdown-er

The fight was still hype for me because I really liked the character and actually figured out how to break his shield on my first attempt at him, but yeah, the fight as-is can really be a letdown if the player doesn't do things in a particular way, and that's a big shame.

he was a letdown to me cause he was overhyped I mean he looked like a final boss or a difficult one, instead I got an easy fight(w/ an exeption on his rage mode) overall the fight was finished easily

That's pretty cool. I never see any non retarded pictures of him that aren't just renders or screencaps.
I don't know if you ever noticed at any given point, but when he puts the shield pieces together, it actually makes out the Desperado Enforcement logo.

Thanks very much! Yeah, the Desperado logo on his shield was one detail I just let go. He took long enough to draw I just decided that I was finished at the point you see it here, heh.

Ironic that you say that. On my first playthrough I didn't know after you slice the weak spot, that you had to cut the arms on the shields to break them off. I thought I had to cut the weak spot then go to town on his body in Blade Mode. Let's just say, running circles around him spamming light attacks takes a while.

I thank Sundowner so much. He showed me that I can use the left stick in Blade Mode

I didn't figure that out until the friggin' final boss. But I'm amazed at the amount of people who couldn't figure out how to cut Sundowner's shield. I wish they'd forced the second half of his fight on you so all those people would still have been able to experience it. Beating him before then would sorta ruined the full effect of the fight.

I've finally beaten Armstrong. That Son of a Bitch was the toughest Boss I can remember I ever fought in a Game.
I still can't understand why he's the bad Guy. I enjoyed killing the Rest(Mistral, SD, Sam and Monsoon) but If I would've the Choice or would've been Raiden the Game could've ended at the Point where Armstrong helped Raiden up.

Should've been the main antagonist, the guy is pure unadulterated evil. No moral grey area or greater purpose, just loves to kill people.

I loved that about him. The guy just grins through most of the game with this childlike joy that was just so much fun to see.

I don't think you can go a single scene with 'downer with having him flashing the most onions grin ever or chuckling at all the crap he pulls.

Imagine Sundowner DLC, his taunt consists of him grinning at the enemy, camera zooming right in his face, and casing them to go into a bloody rage only for them to walk right into his pincer blades/shields.

We need more Kefka-like villains in gaming, they know they're evil and love it.

Haha, me too! I don't know where a potential DLC would take place but maybe it could be Sundowner trying to take over Desperado by going after the owner before him (Armstrong ran World Marshal NOT Desperado). Tired of being a wandering merc, he decides to take it for himself and try to create the war economy of his dreams. It'll give you an excuse to fight cyborgs/UGs and who doesn't love Sundowner? Also, maybe Red Sun can play whenever he gets into a serious battle. MAKE IT HAPPEN PLATINUM/KONAMI! :D
