Playing it right now with Jauert. It's cool and very impressive in scope but has some truly ridiculous features. But that's how MGS always have been, I guess...
The first game of the year! Tag-teaming with Jauert. This game gets better and better, the more you get used to the mechanics. The Metal Gear Mk. II is essentially a mobile camera, which really sets this game apart from the other games in the series. And weapon customization is another awesome feature...
Oh man! They had way to much money to make this game. Sunny's doing a cute little dance routine on the camera, when your fully functional ingame iPod is playing the Two-Han Princess pop song. Insanity.
The Geckos are organic? Awesome.
Completed Act 3. Damn, that was a long ass cut-scene at the end.
Hehe ... return to Shadow Moses. Pity that Carlsen spoiled this awesome 'flashback' for me, would have made a great surprise...
Yes! Metal Gear on Metal Gear action!
It's nice that Otacon has the same MacBook Pro as me :).
Haha... Solid Snake vs. Liquid - FIGHT!!! Hilarious.
I beat the game?
Yay! Sunny's outside... That's all I wanted from the ending... :)
That was one long-ass cutscene! :)
completed the game.
Completion time: 32:04:15, title: Eagle (experienced weapon handlers who racked up their headshot count)
I thought Martin needed to try a Metal Gear game, so I brought this around his place for some late night tactical espionage action. Playing it again, the style and attention to detail of this game stand out as clearly as ever.
Playing at Martin's place, we played through act 2/5 and the uncomfortably weird Laughing Octopus boss fight. I'm playing on easy difficulty this time around, so it's pretty trivial to get through the missions themselves.
