Fans will recall Raiden broke free of government conditioning at the end of Metal Gear Solid 2. Creator Hideo Kojima promised we'd like Raiden by the end of MGS4. Indeed, Raiden stylishly and single-handedly taking out multiple Metal Gear Gekkos could signal a shift from whiny emo to kickass mofo.
Not considering the can of whoopass he opens in this trailer, the eyeshadow and black lipstick make Raiden look even gayer than he did in MGS2. Note that this guy supposedly has a girlfriend. Yes, I know, black eyeshadow reduces glare and black lipstick must help camo in that ninja suit -- but it still looks gay.
