    If you really want some bang for your helicopter arrival buck, you cannot go wrong with True

    It's juuuuust long enough between helicopter arrivals that I always half-forget I set it, then laugh and laugh when I'm reminded

    Whoa

    "Origins of 'Code Talker'" is the single best chunk of Indian writing I've ever seen in a video game, bar none

    Wait what?

    Boarding schools get mentioned in a game with flaming fucking unicorns?

    what is happening?

    Part of me wasn't surprised that Code Talker turned out the way he did because no one who wrote that game was an American so none of them had any baggage about it

    But on the other hand, Vulcan Raven

    So really I was still shocked he turned out as great as he did

    Stole 4 nukes from a dude, destroyed 3, kept one for fun. So...I have to actually build one myself for the achievement, it seems.
    /sigh

    Oh, and another thing - maybe I'm weird, but my favorite Quiet visual in the game is
    in the prologue, when she chokes you out - the fierce look is great, and the purple/blue ghostly image of her as you faint is even better (I'm still trying to grab a decent image of that)

    So mission 11:
    Turns out you were actually meant to fight Quiet?

    woops, first time I just sneaked around the outside, popped some smoke and ran my ass out of there.

    Didn't even realize it was still on my mission list until I had unlocked Africa. Having DD really made that mission easier, having him sniff out Quiet as she shifted position.

    Code Talker is possibly the best Metal Gear support team character, and definitely the best new character introduced to the series since MGS3.

    It's a damn shame that almost all his content is in tapes, where many players could miss out.

    "Missed if you aren't looking for it" kinda sums up most indigenous stories, unfortunately

    I thought Code Talker was great and I'm just sad he doesn't get to be in more Metal Gear stuff. Really happy to hear you liked him, Pooro.

    So I was wondering why this thread wasn't popping up in my bookmarks. I forgot to actually bookmark it. Doh.

    Anyway, wanted to mention this

    So apparently the parasite armor mist and armor cartridges don't prevent S ranks. Only the camo one does.
    Despite what the suit itself says in its description.

    Also I use snake because he runs/moves faster and I am impatient. Also cyborg arm. You will have to pry that thing off me with a crowbar. It is mine. My precious.

    Too big of a clue.
    Btw, with the way the ranks have added on now, Venom Snakes rank would be equivelant to all S's in Peacewalker. So he really was the best they had.
    He hasn't done medicine in a while tho.

    Code Talker
    I can't remember if I asked for help in this thread or the G&T thread so I'll thank in both.
    I S ranked this really easily by crawling up the waterfall and sneaking out again past the skulls and puppet soldiers.
    It was really intense sneaking through the forest, at one point I went directly under one of the skulls on her perch, if she'd looked down I would have had zero cover.

    She cannot participate in any multiplayer.
    I'm not sure what sideops it would break.

    Yeah, I gave up using anyone else for any purpose when I realised how powerful the stun arm could be.
    I can clear an outpost in one shot, and by the time I run to the next outpost, it's recharged.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    I did the thing and re-replaced the file with my original after I saw it worked
    Quiet's still there, the file is my original. I doubt that this'll cause problems, since there are technically no modified files anymore. I think she stays unless I replay 45, which NOPE
