Re: MGS 4 Avalible Thursday

I'm not 100% sure yet.


It sounds like it's going to be awesome, but...

... from what I've read, it sounds like it's only really going to be that awesome if you're a fan & know the story etc.

Having never played any of the earlier MGS games, I have a feeling I wouldn't know WTF is going on, nor care about it.

Re: MGS 4 Avalible Thursday

Cool, I hope it's good!


If I do decide to get it, I may resort to reading the plot of the earlier ones on Wiki or something, so I at least have some idea what's going on lol.

I got a Konami Id from when the MGS:Online Beta was out. I should be able to use that but havent tried yet. It was not easy in the first place to get the ID. Just keep trying there servers may be getting hit now. Try https://id.konami.net/pc/top.jsp thats were you can get your Konami Id if you havent already.

Only had chance to play about an 1hr and half 2nite but I am LOVING it. (Thats the main game by the way aint tried online.)

Re: MGS 4 Avalible Thursday

The game is great, the online signup is a royal pain the ass.

I still can't get over how amusing it is to hide in a box.
The only fault for me so far is that the character does not seem to run fast enough....

I Won't be buying it. I thought the MP was quite poor.

The MP Beta Was very poor. Aint tried the online in MGS4 yet and tbh not really intrested in it. I just love the way MGS tells a storey and the game itself is nothing short of perfect for MGS fans. Am loving it alot

Don't forget this is a single player game primarily. The MP is only really aan add on.

I should have been playing it from release day but it looks like Royal F***ing Mail have lost it.

Re: MGS 4 Avalible Thursday

I completed it today. I won't give away any details, but it's a stunning game from start to finish. The online game is pretty much irrelevant - it's worth buying purely for the single-player game.

Some great humour, and some really nice touches relating to the rest of the series... which you'll probably only 'get' if you've played the previous games.

Re: MGS 4 Avalible Thursday

I bought it on Saturday.

Not played too much yet, still on Act 1 (only had a chance to play it on Sunday ).


As I've never played *any* of the previous MGS games, I read up on them via Wikipedia first, plus watched the Gametrailers retrospective.


Liking it, so far, a lot
