A place to discuss Metal Gear stuff.
This post is still under construction, so I've just put the Foxhound logo here for the meantime, since I have no idea what else to put here.

Oh yeah, the "IT'S JUST LIKE ONE OF MY JAPANESE ANIMES" thing will probably be temporary until I can find something better to put there, you can suggest something if you want.

It's the crazy MGS storytelling with Platinum's over-the-top style. What's not to love?

Apparently EB games broke the release date (or certain stores at least), so I think I might go and see if they have it yet even though I'm sick.

I played the PS3 demo of Rising and loved it until I got to the boss. They wanted you to rely on parrying to stun him, but he wouldn't parry. It's a very awkward input to perform the action. I figured out a different strategy eventually when I figured out how to dodge (which the demo never explains how to do) but I still hate the input for parrying. My brother got the 360 version (full game), and I intend to play it some time. Maybe parrying works better on that controller. But I can't even get it to work outside of battle on PS3. Not consistently anyway.

I'm really looking forward to getting Rising for my birthday, it looks awesome! BTW, anyone else getting MGS Ground Zeroes on release? I was a huge fan of Peace Walker on the HD Collection, and this looks like it'll sort of be the same thing. Let's just hope Kojima doesn't cancel it due to how violent it's supposed to be.

I plan to get Ground Zeroes. I have just about every title in the MG series so far anyway.

I dunno if I'll be getting Ground Heroes , I'm kinda worried about pre-ordering it since I have a feeling it may just get an R+18 rating here, so then my parents would be all "***dawatno" and I would just have to somehow sneakily get it on Steam instead.

#19 Posted: 21:46:20 25/02/2013
I'm not getting Rising since it doesn't have anything to do with the plot and it's just not my genre. Too different from what I love about this series.

I am obviously looking forward to Ground Zeroes, there are still some plotholes on Big Boss' life before Shadow Moses and this game is probably going to solve that.

That is unless The Phantom Pain doesn't do that as well. That's if it's confirmed to me a MGS game.

Not knowing anything is annoying, I wish they could just say "this game is going to be about ___" instead of making weird trailers and giving misleading information or whatever they're doing.

Kojima says Ground Zeroes is supposed to touch on some REALLY dark themes, he doesn't think the game will be able to make it to market cause it's too dark.

What can I say. I'm a fan of the series and have a little collection of metal gear stuff smilie
http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/7713/09072012845.jpg

The first metal gear that I played was on the NES. Back then there was no way to know that the NES version wasn't even a real metal gear game ( it doesn't even have a metal gear in it) . I also liked snake's revenge a lot when I was a kid. That is another game that really isn't a metal gear game and has nothing to do with the canon of the metal gear and kojima had nothing to do with it.

Then one glorious day came the playstation demo of the metal gear solid and I was sold so to speak. Loved it and completed it over ten times. Then came the first videos of mgs 2. I actually got a VHS tape of the video with a psm 2 magazine ( I might remember the name wrong) and watched it over and over because it was so awesome.
I got the game at the release day and completed it over 20 times and the story continues with every metal gear game. Only reason that I don't have a foxhound tattoo on my arm is that all my money goes into games and the fact that here in finland I would have to pay close to 100 euros to get that tattoo if I wanted a professional to do it and that is too much for me.

MGS4 was dark as all hell, in a good way, so I think it should be let through. These games are quite blatantly expressive pieces of art. I hate how they might be limited by some homogenised market worries.

To Partajeesus:

Very nice collection =). What is that glass/plastic looking thing with the Fox Hound symbol on it?

-----------------

I'm a fan of the series, but I have only played the original Metal Gear game, Metal Gear Solid, Sons of Liberty, and Snake Eater (on PS2 and 3DS). I don't have a Xbox 360, PSP, or PS3, so I unfortunately can't play any of the newer games =(. I wish that they made them for the PC.

I have a Fox Hound key chain that is the same Fox Hound logo on the original post. Along with a Zelda shield key chain, I put it on my Club Nintendo Mario Star Messenger bag X}. I also have a Snake Eater shirt (it's this one).

You should watch some gamepley videos from youtube. I thought that it's as bad as portable ops with all the team management and all that, but I actually got addicted to it. I grinded few missions to get better research staff that would get me better weapons etc. I played it over 30 hours if I remember correctly.
I would say that you might love it or hate it so try to watch as much gameplay videos as possible (spoiler free of course) and decide if you like it.

#29 Posted: 18:50:42 01/03/2013
I guess that was for me.
Short answer is no. The MSX versions are quite expensive and I haven't been collecting metal gear games for a few years now. Last metal gear that I bought was the limited edition of the HD collection that was quite cheap at zavvi.com. That actually is zavvi.com exclusive here in europe and at the time it cost under 60 euros and came with the game, steelbook case for the game, artbook ( hardcover and over 200 pages ) and t-shirt.
Here is the unboxing video of that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-FyhlgPutk

Ah, Metal Gear. The only reason the name is familiar is because of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, since I use Snake sometimes. I don't actually play the games, though- they aren't my style.
