    Man, MGS and MGS2 were fun but MGS3 is just a slog for me so far. It's weird how everybody says it's the best one. The jungle stuff is getting old.

    The first half of MSG3 is the worst; the game gets considerably better after the half-way point. Or so I think. In particular, playing through the same forest section twice does get old fast.

    I first played MGS3 the month before MGS4 came out. The beginning jungle section does suck but I thought it picked up quite well once you got out. (And I loved some of the later boss fights)

    Let me tell you about Demon's Souls....
    I’ll tell you what happens in Demon’s Souls when you die. You come back as a ghost with your health capped at half. And when you keep on dying, the alignment of the world turns black and the enemies get harder. That’s right, when you fail in this game, it gets harder. Why? Because fuck you is why.

    So, what should I know before starting MGS4? Like, as far as getting all the hidden stuff, etc.

    For example, it was good to know in MGS3 that defeating the bosses by dropping their stamina instead of life got you their special camo. Things like that.

    With no spoilers if possible.

    Metal Gear Mark II is your friend, get in the habit of using it. There are some chapters where it has special actions.

    In the first two chapters during some of the bigger battles, you're not penalized for going in guns blazing. You can make things a lot easier on yourself (and without triggering alerts), by flanking enemies already engaged.

    You get rewards for beating bosses non-lethally in each of their 'phases'. But if that's too difficult or immersion breaking, just use leathal weapons on their first 'form', and non lethal on the second. That gets you the best reward with the minimum of hassle.

    Secret codecs are still in, so call frequently.

    Pretty much everything from the prior games are true here, with the exception of the new controls.

    Both these "directors" get sets of fans who argue too much about whether or not the art is better for restraint or indulgence. And I don't think that either men can really say no to their silliest whims.

    Codec is basically not worth it in 4, there are very few new conversations.

    Some of the harder to unlock weapons are kinda neat I guess.

    So I got my friend a copy of Subsistence. I'm going to hide it under a cardboard box in his room and see how long it takes before he finds it.

    Do you think I can just go to a local store and ask if they have a cardboard box a man could fit in without getting arrested?

    liquor stores usually are a good place for boxes, but a Super market might be better for really big ones, or even better, a furniture store.

    I don't think that fitting in a cardboard box is an offence that warrants arrest.

    I'm not sure we're playing the same game. Sure, there are only two people you can contact for the most part. But the amount of easter eggs and info dumping is the same as any other Metal Gear. You even find out important revealations about things like...

    Conversing. I like Metal Gear Solid, the series. But no-one easily agrees on the best one- that's not a value judgement, that just seems to be the case. When the uberfans argue over Zelda, it's quickly to be noticed that some people can't stand the 2-D entries compared favourably to the latter 3-D ones. Moreoever, most have an opinion about the toon look of Windwaker versus the "realist" look of Twilight Princess.

    For Metal Gear, for the purposes of this discussion (already on page 35), it can be noticed that besides the general argument over whether or not the progression in gameplay complexity is especially good, that some prefer the series at the point where the narrative made fewer or less imaginative stretches of reality. You might not even give a shit about my opinion, because it's also entirely fair, I suppose to disagree with any of the series being more tight knit, but I would say that the socio-political drama of the first has not been repeated but perhaps equaled in certain measure with the insane production of the sequel. The third one seems mostly just a send-up of itself, the series, action films in general. I liked the dark atmosphere and the sneaking of the first one, I'll say that's where the series was most enjoyable for me. Liquid Snake's unfolding tale of revenge didn't need a sequel, because I killed him at the suitably great end of the very first game.

    And of course it's already been offered that there was never such a point to be found in the series.

    To go back to what I said, friend, I liked Tarantino when he was making tighter, more restrained films in the nineties. I was very hesitent to watch Inglorious Bastards and I don't think, based on my experience of MGS3, I'd want to pick up even to play MGS4, which continues one of the most retarded plots ever fashioned onto a game disc.
