Goddamn Europe getting games late. Every so often I replay Mgs 2 and 3 just for old times sake. Must have been about a year or two since I did it last. Going to totally nostalgia over them.
[QUOTE=Doneeh;33418349]Here's the best line in the series: [/QUOTE] Far better. Sorry for the childish looping shit that people seem to think others would find funny. [video=youtube;oOiIMr6SrZo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOiIMr6SrZo[/video]
68 more days for my European Extreme version... Not that i play European Extreme, always got stuck on Fatman :<
Does this collection really add anything but graphics improvements? If not, I might skip this one considering I still have the PS2 around and play the old ones pretty often.
i fucking hate peace walker with a thousand suns right now due to one minor thing fucking walk unit won't go to 5/5 scraps so i can fucking build a metal gear (I am at 4/5 scraps). I literally Aim only for the walk shit over and over on almost every AI boss and they still won't drop shit for it. and then the game continues to taunt me by giving me 5 Fully complete units of everything else, even optional shit. seriously dear god kojima why have you done this to me.
[QUOTE=Deaver;33417570]Well, MGS2 and 3 have existing engines that need to be ported, which would only require the devs to accomadate the platform transition. Peace Walker was probably more complicated, as it worked on the PSP. The likely reason their excluding MGS1 from the collection is probably because of the fact that the last remake was the Gamecube, which is owned by Nintendo, who, being Nintendo, would probably not give up the rights to Twin Snakes. Konami probably wouldn't bother recreating the first MGS, regardless of whether or not they use the existing engine of Metal Gear Solid 4 or otherwise. Also, it's cross platform, meaning that you can get it on the 360.[/QUOTE] Oh, but MGS1 was soo good... 360... Which I also don't have...

What I think that one needs to do is not hit the parts associated with the part you want to procure. Otherwise, the part is un-obtainable. I could be wrong, though.
Yes finally acquired my first walk unit. fuckking damn 10 cocoon missions later [editline]1st December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Conro101;33490755]shouldn't you shoot the stuff that isn't the walk unit? shooting it unlocks the memory boards, but stops you from getting the actual unit, if I remember correctly[/QUOTE] if that is true i will start banging my head on hard objects now to relieve rage
[QUOTE=kukiric;33449094]Who needs native PC copies that don't work? I can run my copies of MGS1, 2 and 3 in full speed emulation and use an actual Dualshock (3) controller with pressure sensitivity [IMG]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/emoot/smug.gif[/IMG][/QUOTE] yeah the PC port of MGS2 has a godawfully bad control scheme without a controller... plus the graphics glitch weird at times.

The MSX Metal Gear is pretty fun for such an old game. My only complaint is the sound effect for the codec thing is annoying.
Finally getting around to playing MGS3. I fucking love this. The Fury is a faggot.
I completely forgot about this for a while, I didn't even know it had been released
Ive never played metel gear solid and i want to get this collection but do i need to play the first one?
If you care about the story, then yes.
Has anyone on the 360 played Peace Walker and found that enemies apparently aren't rendering but are still ingame?
[QUOTE=mark6789;34708847]Ive never played metel gear solid and i want to get this collection but do i need to play the first one?[/QUOTE] Unless you want to read through 500+ pages of backstory.
[QUOTE=markg06;34708993]Has anyone on the 360 played Peace Walker and found that enemies apparently aren't rendering but are still ingame?[/QUOTE] I've got it for 360 and that hasn't happened for me at all. I'm finding myself really enjoying Peace Walker. The only Co-Op and Extra Ops missions are pretty good. It is a shame that MGS1 wasn't in the collection though. As the HD Collection came out on 360 and PS3, I really hope MGS4 gets a 360 release. MGS4 and Portable Ops are the only games I haven't played yet. I don't really want to buy a PS3/PSP just to play those 2 games.
I got this in from Gamefly the other day and the first thing I did was play MGS3 again. Nostalgia'd pretty hard. You know its bad when you have flashbacks of 4 while playing 3 and vice versa.
Playing MGS3 again was a dream come true. Started Peace Walker yesterday. It was little jarring, as I hadn't looked up any details. The toned down violence was a little disappointing but the base-management and the story are intriguing me.
wait, if i get the hd collection will i just need 1 and 4, or will i also need twin snakes
I genuinely need to pick this up at some point. I remember playing MGS1 in my childhood, I played the fuck out of MGS4 before losing the disk, but I never really got to play the second and third (I played a tiny, tiny fraction of the third actually). Now, I need to stop being a cheapskate long enough, anyone know cheap places to find this in the UK? Amazon seems like my best bet so far, I might pick up a second hand copy of MGS4 from the local CEX mind.
[video=youtube;8mHKHKR8x6A]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mHKHKR8x6A[/video] Still my favorite MGS-related video.

I went up my local shopping centre and Game, Gamestation, CEX, Morrisons and Asda were all sold out. I managed to get mine from Sainsburys, it was the last one there aswell. After checking Amazon, there are only 3 new and 1 used xbox copies and about 10 ps3 copies. So it looks like it's selling like a bitch.
[QUOTE=DimJim;34717564]wait, if i get the hd collection will i just need 1 and 4, or will i also need twin snakes[/QUOTE] Twin Snakes is just a remake of the first game.
"Remember, this is a sneaking mission" "Whats a Sneaking Mission?" Playing MGS3 on a 50 inch TV, Pretty damn epic. Although i happen to be half monk, half rambo playing it. At least i didnt suck as much playing MGS2 on hard... so many continues.

Hnng I hate the Grenade Launcher VR Missions so fucking much. 3/5ths through Peace Walker, I like it's whole Staff Management/Outer Ops/R&D thing. I am somewhat annoyed by the removal of -Nightmare Minigame in 3 -Boss Survival in 3 -Ape vs Snake Mode
