2001: A blockbuster title is released. MGS2. People have been waiting for years. Things happen. Game is released to critical acclaim and roaring outrage. It's a good game, don't get the masses wrong, it's just the whole, "LOL, Snake is bak, SYKE! Play as Raiden, bitch!" thing was very mean. Anyway, you are Snake/Raiden. Terrorists have a giant walking nuclear tank. Go and take out the terrorists, rescue some hostages, and disable the giant tank. This is the great sequal to the greatest stealth action game of the 90's. The game is not about running around shooting everything that moves. It's about sneaking past the guards, taking them out indirectly, and not being seen.
Oh, but you could, if you so choose, to shoot everything that moves. It's just harder that way.
Released shortly after for Xbox, PS2, and PC, MGS2: Substance is a revamped version of MGS2. The big new feature was the VR missions, Snake Tales(additional mode where you played as snake in a variety of wierd to normal things. One mission has you taking on Godzilla guard, I believe.) Besides that, it's pretty much the same.
Demo of some shitty X-TREME sports game, but with snake, found in the PS2 version of Substance(Thank Unco-ordinated!)
Raiden makes for a bad Lightning god.
So, recently got back into MGS 2. Good game, confusing plot.
ITT: Let's discuss the plot, what we like about the game, maybe some MGS4 and 3 and 1 stuff. And cookies. Every thread needs cookies.
Not In This Thread: Games that are not somehow related to Metal Gear. So, if you want to recommend ZOE to everyone, you can. But no talk of DMC or something very unrelated.
No flaming the game. If you don't like it, why post here?
*I'd like to thank AL Cu Ad Solte of the SomethingAwful forums for taking these wonderous picture. I don't know you, but thanks for taking good pics.*
Note: He took more pics, but their kinda spoilery, so I'm not gonna post em right now. I just posted the one above because I really like them.
That's it, have fun.
