Technical Notes

  • I tested MGS2 in PCSX2 1.6.0 on my AMD Ryzen 7 2700X machine (8 cores, 3.7 GHz), and this game finally seems to be emulated in a smooth 60FPS.

Log entries

  • I remember having borrowed this and playing it while living together with Peter Breum and Janne. I don't remember ever completing it.
  • I do remember the surprise and confusion when I was suddenly playing as Raiden, and Snake saying his name was Plissken. Ridiculous.
  • 2011-02-26
  • Found it at Gamestop for 30 DKK. Now I have no excuse to not complete it.
  • 2014-08-23
  • So, this is the time, 13 years later, to resume playing this great game. I have started a new game on NORMAL difficulty. I defeated Olga Gurlukovich and got Thermal Goggles and a USP.
  • First death: wandered into infrared sensor-controlled bomb, after I thought I disabled it.
  • Oh, there are *three* sets of IR sensors and Semtex. I get it. And now Snake has a cold.
  • A Revolver Ocelot/Liquid Snake hybrid? Seems like a dangerous combination.
  • Accomplished Completed Tanker Chapter..
  • OK, Raiden, let's see what you can do...
  • The oil rig looks amazing. Such great lighting and detail.
  • Completed Plant chapter 1/7. Vamp and Fortune ... they sure are some real weirdos.
  • Floor reflections, working mirrors, full screen effects, subtle first person camera movement. This game has it all.
