A lot of people called the game out for a lack of villains/ bosses but you're right, after peace walker it must feel like a return to form.

Oh, absolutely. The villains are usually the most memorable parts of Metal Gear for me. The sneaking sections all blend into one stealthy blur in my head, but I've clear memories of Psycho Mantis, The End, Ocelot, The Boss... fingers crossed for more of that in MGSV. Speaking of The End...

Episode 11 Spoilers:
 

I think I need to change my tactics up a little bit. I've been playing by initially stealthing my way about a base, knocking off guards with a suppressed gun or tranquing them and fultoning them, eventually getting caught and then having to firefight my way through the remaining dudes. It's good fun, but I'd love to be able to take a whole base out without getting caught.

Top tip: to get a suppressed sniper rifle, you have to customise. It's not a development project.

Really? I could have sworn I saw one in the development list. That'd be a huge boon, because I keep alerting an entire base just to snipe one pesky dude on a watchtower.

Yeah, I was super late into the game before using my sniper rifle was an option. Might be different with the lethal ones.

It took me a good while to settle into getting through the odd mission without being spotted, but I found trying to do things with perfect stealth to be the most nerve inducing and intense way to play. Always good to soldier on when you get spotted though, dealing with a messy situation is a huge part of the fun.

That's a good article, Drunka. I haven't been letting the quest for perfection taint my MGSV playthrough thus far - I'm resigned to the fact that I'm just too shit at Metal Gear to consistently S-Rank missions, and I don't have the willpower to replay missions umpteen times until I nail that S-Rank. Having said that, when I have a rare burst of inspiration and get that S-Rank, it feels so damn good.

I was back on MGO earlier today and tried more of the cloak & dagger mode and it is much better when you have a decent non-lethal loadout as the default loadout (3 stun grenades) makes it really difficult, I would love to get a few GNamer folk on it sometime so we can have a decent team.

(some guy who was level 29 had seemed to have a stun grenade launcher)

I've always gone for the leg it approach when coming up against some form of boss battle and it never really works for me. Ninja

I need to give online a go I think, looks really fun. I was focusing on getting all the missions done before I ventured in to online but I'm only at 50% so no point in me postponing any longer.

15 minutes of improv with the cast of Metal Gear Solid. Spoilers up to and including MGS4, it seems!

Surprisingly, they keep it together for the full 15 minutes, although Otacon's VA almost loses it at 11:47. Highlight for me was Raiden's VA sitting in David Hayter's chair and grinning like a loon.

Played a little bit of MGO with Jas tonight - in short, it's pretty good! Fast paced whilst still keeping the stealth aspect of Metal Gear.

I wasn't a huge fan of how restrictive the loadouts were early game - running about with a basic rifle was a bit naff whilst the enemy team were wielding sleep gas grenades and stealth cloaking systems. Still, I enjoyed the couple of hours I had with it. Thumbs Up!

Aye those were some fun matches, glad I saved the footage of that crazy shoot out we had where the enemy was firing sleeping gas grenades. Laughing

Just hearing you mention Mission 43 has bummed me out Sad

That's how Chapter 2 was for me as well, so it was no real issue.

It actually ties in with Drunka's article about bleak video-game moments - emotionally, it was bloody awful to experience and genuinely quite upsetting, but the game's better off with its inclusion.
