    Wasn't there rumors going around a while ago about the Metal Gear movie actually going somewhere? Whatever happened to that..

    I think it's still being worked on. There were rumours that Kojima was spending a lot of time in Hollywood, even after MGS4's music had been completed.

    Haha, Italax you show off.

    And yeah, they recently attached a writer and possible director for the project. I don't recall his name, but it was the guy who made Equilibrium and Ultraviolet.

    So it could be good or bad.

    Hmm.. I wonder if they went with David Hayter...

    I hope they did. Hell, I hope they dub his voice over whoever they get to play Snake. It is not Snake if it is not David Hayter's voice. I think it's amazing how much his voice actually plays into my impression of the character.

    Naa, they rejected his script. Even though Kojima said it was pretty good.

    How do you use the MK. II during briefings? I know you get some masks and iPod songs by tooling around with it but I don't know how.

    During mission briefings there's a prompt to hit the select button, which brings up a few onscreen prompts for different buttons you can press. One (L2 I think) will take what's going on in the larger of the two viewers and make it fullscreen. The same button will return it to the multi-view angle, and I believe (could be wrong) square allows you to set the MK II's view as the larger of the two screens. Then hit L2 again and you have MK II's view fullscreen. Toot around the Nomad and you'll be able to pick up a few batteries (over the course of a few briefings, leaving you with 3 total - very handy). You can also get masks by bumping into/shocking characters. It's important to note that the briefing with Campbell doesn't actually appear in the game - you have to access it from the main menu, without going into the actual game.

    I think that's actually Triangle. But now I think I might be wrong.

    Ah. It was square. Thanks guys. Shocking doesn't work but I rammed everyone I could and I have everyone's but campbells. Are you referring to the mission 1 briefing? I think that is the only one you have to access yourself.

    The bullshit thing about this game is plenty of times you'll go into Alert, get into an area where there's no one around, and your Alert counter won't move at all.

    That's some bullshit right there.

    It means that someone knew where you went. Your enemy has to lose track of you, not just break eye contact, for the counter to start. That's why you can't just jump inside a cardbaord box after being seen.

    You know what was really bullshit, was in my Extrem Game Over if Detected run of MGS2, I'd empty a room down to only one guard, shoot him in the head, and he'd catch me before the bullet got to him. I mean come on.

    So prior to release I read in a preview or something about the Tanageshima, and about how it'll pretty much wipe an area clean with a cyclone or somethin'. However, now when I'm playing it seems to do pretty much nothing. I read the viewer information for it, and it says something along the lines of 'legend says in certain places it can summon a divine wind'. So I have to think it'll be an awesome area-clearing weapon, but only in certain areas.

    Um... what areas are those? 'Cause I haven't found any (not that I tried much).

    As for the Javelin - I don't know where you find it, but it's an anti-tank missile launcher. It doesn't lock on, but it fucks up tanks and APCs pretty good.

    What I want to know (aside from the Tanageshima thing) is where the hell is the single-shot grenade launcher? When you purchase stun grenades from Drebin you see it in the weapons that the ammo can be used with - but I've never found it. Has anyone else?

    I got it in Act I. When the tank shows up before you meet the B&Bs for the first time, look up and left after you get behind the tank. There's a guy with a Javelin up there and in the taller building behind him, there's a sniper with an M14. Climb up the building with the sniper, liberate his rifle, pop the guy with the Javelin, and then do the running roll onto the shorter building where the Javelin guy was.

    Okay so I just beat Laughing Beauty in my no-kills run. Over the course of the fight I shot some of her missiles and they exploded over a tranq'd FROG and killed her. That doesn't count as a kill for me, does it?

    What statues you get in one playthrough will carry through to the next right? Because in this playthrough I'm getting the beauties' statues, but I didn't get the frog one. I'm going to grab that next game. I'll still get the solar gun right?

    There's another one in that area too, just sitting in a corner on top of a building with another sniper.
