I played a few hours, up past the prologue, which was the original "This is not a Metal Gear game" trailer, expanded out quite a bit, then the mission they mission played out in the big reveal from last year and the one from this year's E3.  Even knowing the major points in each mission, I was still open to surprises and of course, the exact methods of how I completed the missions varied as I took different approaches and different levels of success.  Over all, it is a very polished experience and I am glad they went with the open world/freedom for this game.

Some of the newer weapons Luke the magnet bomb were cool but hard to put to good use.

The biggest knock is that the honeymoon is over quick, due in no small part to the lack of new terrain.
I remember trying to get some of the wackier achievements playing this with you, Purge.

Yeah, the game really did not need zombies imo.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mad Max - open world game from Avalanche on: September 01, 2015, 03:41:35 AM
well, I'll have MGS to play until I decide whether to open it or return it. 

I'll probably still open it though, knowing that it's freaking Mad Max and I've wanted a game like this for a long time.  Outlander on the Genesis is the last game that got close to the world design and mechanics.

Otacon:  It's a list of games coming out this week.  You use it by pressing the Action Button.

Snake:  Ah, so if I want to get a game, I simply select one and press the Action Button?

Otacon:  Almost, Snake.  You are reporting on what you are going to by, which system it's for and whether you are interested but waiting on reviews.

Snake:  WE"RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!!

Otacon:  I'll get to the point.  By the way, why did your voice change just now?

Snake:  What are we here for, to live and die?  To fight for another man's war?  

Otacon:  I'll just ignore that.  Snake, what are you going to buy this week?

We want to give you an update on the release date for XCOM 2. Weíve set a high bar for the sequel and the entire team has been working hard to make sure we deliver a great follow-up to Enemy Unknown. We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game.

With XCOM 2, we want to have more depth, more replayability, and more investment in your soldiers and this extension will give us the time we need to deliver on our promise to you.

We appreciate your patience and continued support as we move towards February. Good luck, Commander!

Quote from: ATB on August 27, 2015, 09:02:16 PM

Problem is the games are so self-reverential and I haven't played anything since MGS4.  I don't mind taking the time to get caught up as I don't plan on buying it at launch anyway (MGS4 was the reason I bought the PS3).

Additionally, I have completely lost track of who is who and what the overarching narrative is.  I thought MGS4 was the perfect conclusion, but I cannot remember anything that happened in it. smile

Edit: Thanks fo rthe link Caine!

ATB, this line from Destructoid seems to address your very concern

For those of you who are curious, you won't be completely lost if you haven't played previous games in the series, but Snake Eater and Peace Walker knowledge will definitely up your enjoyment of the narrative

Is there an easy way to watch all the cutscenes from all the previous games?  I assume they're on youtube, but didn't know if you guys had a better way to find/view them.

You realize that would take many, many hours? There's a cutscene in one of the games that's over an hour long. There are some decent summaries of the story up until this point, I've watched/read a few of them and... still don't really get it aside from the really high level stuff.


You might want to check this playlist, ATB

Metal Gear Movies

Keep in mind, the only ones which take place before TPP are MGS3, MGS Portable Ops, Peace Walker, and Ground Zeroes.  You can probably skip Portable Ops and just play Ground Zeroes.  I'd recommend that in any case as it directly leads into TPP and also features the same mechanics on a smaller scale.  It's also free on Games with Gold this month iirc.

Reviews are hitting today and they look good.

After dozens of hours sneaking in the dirt, choking out enemies in silence, and bantering with madmen who wish to cleanse the world, The Phantom Pain delivers an impactful finale befitting the journey that preceded it. It punches you in the gut and tears open your heart. The high-caliber cutscenes, filled with breathtaking shots and rousing speeches, tease you along the way. Your fight in the vast, beautiful, and dangerous open world gives you a sense of purpose. The story is dished out in morsels, so you'll have to work for the full meal, but it's hard to call it "work" when controlling Big Boss feels so good, with so many possibilities at your fingertips.

Even Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Painís missteps show a certain boldness that is absent from the big budget games space. It is unafraid to experiment, not just on the franchiseís structure, but on mechanics readily established as standards in the industry. Delivering the most realized open-world stealth game to date in addition to the customizability for players to approach every challenge however they see fit, The Phantom Pain not only changes the rules of the Metal Gear Solid series, ultimately altering the trajectory of the franchise, if it does continue, while simultaneously changing the idea of what can be accomplished with an open world game, both narratively and mechanically.

Make no mistake, though, the Phantom Pain is excellent. It expands and enriches Metal Gear Solid without compromising the qualities that make the series so beloved. Despite the huge scope, hollywood talent, and technical flashiness, thereís a subtlety to the Phantom Pain thatís truly captured our hearts. Even now weíre still turning its events over and over again in our minds. So rarely do game stories demand so much consideration. Decades later, itís incredible that Metal Gear can still captivate, inspire, and amaze. The Phantom Pain is another significI ant addition to an enduring legacy.

You can almost hear the call of the publishers this week as they rush to get their wares out before a certain big name hits on September 1st (and another, older name with promises of an established developer).

I'm pretty much entirely out of the loop these days...what comes out Sept 1?

I assume he's referring to MGSV.

Yes, yes indeed.  and from all looks, is already a strong contender for GotY.  We also get Mad Max, which while looking very familiar to open-world games, seems very solid and has a great environment to explore with some great car combat to boot.

That's pretty cool, but my mind itches at the mis-matched angles on the buildings.
