Its finished enough, no need to drag out a game, very forgettable though.
I have zero sympathy for Hideo Kojima being shafted by Konami, given he basically did the same thing to David Hayter. It's one thing to go with a different person for Snake's voice, but Hayter stated that he wasn't even informed. He found out about Kiefer Sutherland playing Snake at the same time we did. Hayter played the voice of Snake for over a decade. Yet Kojima didn't bother to give Hayter the courtesy of informing him that he was being replaced. Without spoiling anything for people who haven't played it yet, a certain plot point of MGSV even gave them the perfect chance to have their cake and eat it too, with Sutherland playing the voice of Snake for the majority of the game, while also utilising Hayter. But we didn't even get that. Hayter was dropped like a sack of potatoes. Fortunately, MGSV's story and portrayal of characters is terrible compared to every other MGS game, so it's not like Hayter missed out on a great swansong for the character he spent years with. Peace Walker was a far better finale for Hayter than MGV would have been. The game engine in MGSV is absolutely amazing; it feels so great to play. But the reason the MGS games are so beloved is because of their story and characters, and MGSV did a terrible job with both.
Yeah but Im sure its only for last-gen in regards to full shutdown. I think the PSN Store statement is only in regards to GZ's online functionality: https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/113747-mgsv-ps3-servers-are-shutting-down-may-31st-2022-0600-am-utc/?page=5 PS4/XO Ground Zeros will lose its transfer feature but the DE includes all this so DE wont be lost. Recent discussion I found: https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/126070-are-servers-for-the-ps4-version-shutting-down/ And https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/48142-upcoming-server-shutdowns-delistings/ CONFIRMED UPCOMING SHUTDOWNS (SOURCES AT THE GAME TITLE LINK): PS3 - Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes - 31st of May, 2022 [Apparently no online trophies, unclear if online functions help offline trophies some way] PS4 - Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes - 31st of May, 2022 [Apparently no online trophies, unclear if online functions help offline trophies some way] PS3 - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - 31st of May, 2022 I dont think PS4/XO FOB's are going just yet but I cant find anything absolute about it bar the only official announcements from Konami: https://www.konami.com/mg/jp/info/870/ https://www.konami.com/mg/jp/info/871/
Online servers are for PvP portion of the game only. Because servers are being shot people won't be able to play online to invade each other's bases anymore. The main game and all other content are still going to be available.
GoogleFu is failing me but is there any official word on what is being discountinued in regards to the online for the PS4? I can only find that its just 360 and PS3 getting closed? Ive been doing the PS3 version so I dont lock myself out of the platinum (FOB raid & Fuel farming for completing the base) but have been saving the PS4 one to enjoy again at some point in the future. I did 360 mostly 'offline' when it came out before all the additions to it and it was fairly simple to complete the base, PS3 seems to be taking a hell of a lot longer and if PS4 needs the same then I dont think Ill get it done :( I know the Non-DE editions are losing the upload/download from GZ to PP and access to the FOB online stuff, DE has all the content from PP already in the game. You lose some development options and staff in the non-DE/last-gen versions but not game altering in anyway really. Already got the 1k on both 360 and XB1, hoping to do the same on PS and Steam.
In case anyone is wondering, this is a prequel to The main game "MGS Phantom Pain". This is more like a training mission and you're not really missing out on anything by avoiding this and getting the main game. The main game is great fun and fairly cheap so worth playing if you haven't done so already
been playing this on ps4. enjoying it quite a lot.
Was a demo. Nothing more.
Awesome game, was alot of fun and still holds up.
Never miss a 'Metal Gear Solid' deal again!

Really good. Of course, you have to respect the fact that it was a PSP game, so its areas are relatively small and you need to load to go from one to the next. However it is very similar to MGS3 in that regard. The only other concession is that there are very few in-game cutscenes. Much of it is done through a comic book style thing (this is more to do with the PSP's UMD capacity). If you can look past these things, it is easily one of the best games in the series. The gameplay is superior to Snake Eater's, as you can crouch walk, the shooting is better, the physics and animations on enemies are excellent, and its gameplay is basically MGSV before MGSV existed (without the open world). This game was originally considered MGSV during development, but they changed their mind later, maybe because of pressure from Konami. There's tons of content here, and honestly if you like the style, you can't go wrong. I have not played it on Xbox yet but I presume they may have taken out the co-op mode. So if you still have a PSP or Vita, get it on there!
This is such an amazing game. I can't speak to the Xbox copy, but on PSP back in the day it was the peak of the handheld's greatness imo. This was mind-blowingly good back then. I still have the limited edition copy sealed with the Peace Walker bandana.
Happy to help (y)
Nice one my man thanks for your help!

I've just got a series s so picking up lots of games and have been an impatient idiot. First with Alan Wake and now this. I only paid £8 on the Brazilian store but feel like I need some patience here.
I kind of wish the MGS remasters didn't come only one generation after initial release as with this. They could have been something else on PS4 or Xbox One. They are still amazingly playable games though and worth owning.
Is the hard drive knacked? Not sure what 360 model you have bought? Some old 360s didn't even have a hard drive if I remember rightly. Try plugging a 32 or 64 gig usb stick in as an external drive to test. You can download games to an external drive. if it is the drive you can either use an external USB powered hdd or get a preowned 360 internal drive from cex or summat and just swap it. Just check u get the right one for your 360 model, not sure if they are different.
Just bought it from the UK store, £3.74 for these two games is pretty good anyway.
Revolut is handy, have a few quid in sterling, exchange it for Czech koruna, pay for it and it'll automatically take the koruna over any other currency you may have in your account.

Came to £27 pound something for me
Yeah don't. I did the exact same thing when I had the bro in law round the other month playing SF5 on the ps4. Tired of the standard roster and new gameplay as I didn't progress due to being put off so thought I'd get SF4 out to play. Got it all out, wiped down, controllers at the ready, plugged it and and red light of death. Spent the rest of the night blowing into it doing the old school cartridge trick hoping it would work lol
“War has changed. It's no longer about nations, ideologies, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines. War--and it's consumption of life--has become a well-oiled machine. War has changed. ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control, information control, emotion control, battlefield control…everything is monitored and kept under control. War…has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control, all in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction, and he who controls the battlefield, controls history. War…has changed. When the battlefield is under total control, war.... becomes routine.”
This post actually somehow made me feel like maybe I should play metal gear solid 1 and 2 again :p

I'm with you on IV, hated the sailing. AC II was phenomenal but I will say Origins and Odyssey are really good, best since II.

The story, the gameplay (especially the sailing and fighting mechanics) , the graphics, the grind… I just disliked everything about it. I loved assassins creed 2 but everything since then just hasn’t appealed to me.

Got it for less than £2 from Kinguin. No point getting the "definitive" because all it includes are dancing emote things for the dead multiplayer and some silly/sexualised skins for singleplayer. Good game. Awful story. Terrible, terrible storytelling (where you sit in a chopper for 5-6 minutes at a time and listen to some anime voice actors give out long-winded exposition that constantly goes around in circles).
"… which I haven’t finished yet" Nor did Hideo Kojima, unfortunately :(
I got TPP for £4.99 in cash converters lol so might be worth a try if you want a disc version
Tempted to buy this but would prefer it on the Xbox one? Does anyone know the price on Xbox one? Tia.

Actually it's both MGS V and MGS Survive on offer. I won't be adding the latter to my cart then! Seems quite a good deal - I don't believe South Park TFBW has been under £3 so may pick that up with MGS V and some other filler!
Unfortunately it isn’t Metal Gear solid V or the definitive edition. It’s actually metal gear survive which was an asset flip of MGS 5 and was reviewed awfully
If only the Uplay ones were Steam keys and then it would be an instant buy.
Is For Honor worth it single player?
Not the best to be honest. All received free in past - For Honor, Black Flag, Rayman Legends, The Division. The others generally £1-3 game - South Park, Thief, Metal Gear Solid. They have done better than this, rather cheap attempt at a bundle.
