    Damn, maybe that's why it's so epic. I can't imagine being in a boss fight for 2-3 hours. I'd probably get too pissed. And damn about the camo... I wish I'd known. Oh well, I have a hard enough time holding people up that aren't bosses... I can't imagine how long it would have taken for me.

    All the ways I know to beat him are:

    My favorite thing to do is...
    tranq his parrot and eat it. Now thats bad ass. (You can't really defeat him by doing this, but its still awesome.) You can also track is footprints or use the thermals and microphone to find him.

    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.

    Actually, you can. If you eat his parrot, he can't pray to the forest to recover stamina. Then you can just wait and wait until his stamina drains had stamina-kill him with a single traq shot. That's what I did.

    Ahh, this is so much better on my first HDTV. It's a Samsung 22 inch, 1080 P. I can now read the Stress and Camo Percentages, and read what items are CQC able. I like being able to read <3

    The damn thing has no audio output, of all things, so I had to stick my old stereos into it with a Y plug into the headphones jack. I'll have to look for a cheap 5.1 surround sometime...

    In retrospect, MGS3 had a lot more replay value for me than MGS4 ever did. Throughout all of MGS4 I thought I didn't understand CQC. Then I realized I really only did have a few CQC moves, and they really were that hard to execute. I always end up releasing a person from their chokehold instead of knocking them out by crouching down and then moving the SIXAXIS sideways to turn the guy over.

    I liked the overall environments more and the CQC was better than MGS4's (understandably - MGS4 made sure it wasn't overpowered like it was in MGS3, plus Big Boss was more powerful than Old Snake in CQC).

    The online play in MGS4 is solid. It could be so good I'd still play it, but it needs the following to be good:

    -Free tournaments:
    not paying $12 for an overpriced addon to gain access to tournaments!

    -More characters:
    they do NOT need to be bought, Konami - I don't see COD4 or Gears, both great online games MGS4 could've competed with, asking for $$ for a small feature.

    -Better clothing shop:
    the customization in this game is strong. The system in which you purchase gear & clothing is not (via PS3 browser). It could be better than RB6V2's...

    -More maps:
    There are seriously about 5 maps. You can buy more (only 2-3 for $12), but **FIVE** maps?! Did I pay for a demo?

    I really like the gameplay and customization system online. It's a shame there are so few players because of reasons listed above, glitchers, and more.

    Honestly, Konami really fucked MGO, and from what I remember about Kojima's slight comments on the issues I'm sure it was the higher ups/marketing team that forced them into that wacky shit. The whole Konami ID shit was so dumb, and then the fact that you couldn't buy the addons on the PSN was even more stupid. I don't even know how their marketing team agreed to or even wanted that. I mean, putting it up on the PSN means all PSN users will see it and know it's been updated. It's like free advertisement. And the weird website to outfit your characters was just... off...

    The gameplay had a few flaws too. I honestly think something's off with the headshot hitbox or something. There really shouldn't be that many headshots at all. That's practically all the fucking game was. Headshot headshot headshot. Annoying. Also, it didn't help that a lot of the best players' matches devolved into flipping the box on and off over and over while spinning in circles and headshoting people. That's just fucking weird... and wrong. That should have some affect on your aim.I didn't mind having 5 maps, but a few of them were just kind of bland. They were just square areas, really.

    It had some cool things going for it. The survival mode thing they did on weekends was the most fun I had on it. Otherwise way too many people just played TDM (I have no fucking clue why at all... supposed to be a strategic game, so everyone plays the non-strategy type? dumb). The skill system was pretty unique and cool too.

    Really, I'm saddened by MGO. I really keep wanting to go back and try it, but I know I'll just get headshotted every time I round a fucking corner by some guy way off on the other side of the map using just a pistol. It's a shame, because I was almost as excited for MGO as I was the full MGS4, and it had the potential of being the PS3's BIG online title (for a while MGS4 was THE game to own if you had a PS3, so I wanted it to be THE game you play online if you have a PS3). It could have been the PS3's Halo or something in that regard. Really too bad it didn't work out.

    I rented this last night. People really weren't joking about cutscenes and stuff, the first act was thick with 'em. A little into the second act, I think, and I'm quite enjoying it, although I'm still really bad at sneaking. Maybe I should just shoot everyone.

    Lately I've been playing Persona 4 (on the last month, I think), and in P4 there's a pretty important character who's basically the most endearing, adorable little girl there ever was. She cooks eggs.

    As a result, while playing this RPG I'm constantly thinking "man, I could get into some MGS4." Once I'm done with P4 I'm gonna' have to have a story run of MGS4, watching every single goddamn cutscene in the game.

    Eat the eggs, Snake! Eat 'em!
