Rising is canon. It just isn't a Metal Gear Solid game. Still a canon part of the overall Metal Gear franchise. Platinum is handling the gameplay, Koji Pro is doing the story.
...I mean, the MSX 2 games weren't Metal Gear Solid games, and those are still canon. More or less.
I've heard about Ground Zeroes. It isn't about The Boss. So fuck it.
I kid, I kid, it actually does look really awesome. But is a game about The Boss too much to ask for?
So yeah, Ground Zeroes may end up being the best Metal Gear game ever until they make one about The Boss.
Probably because there isn't very much to go by from the trailer so far, other than the fact that the grahpics ROCK for a current gen game and that the gameplay is supposed to take place in an open-world environment that you can explore.
Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.
I hope they come up with something good for the story in Ground Zeroes, since all of the story so far has been pretty well filled in by 3, 4 and Peace Walker. Crazy boss fights and a surplus of fourth-wall breaking moments are pretty much compulsory.
Ocelot was confirmed in canon to be Big Boss-sexual. It was the driving force for his entire plan. If you are looking up Rule 34 for anything that involves a female, you are looking at the wrong series.
I'm not saying that there isn't female based Rule 34 doesn't exist somewhere, but I think you fail to understand just how rampant yaoi fangirlism can get, especially in a male dominant cast where the creator is actively upping the Godless amount of subtext in each game. That said, this series aint got shit on Kingdom Hearts when it comes to yaoi.
Yes but the difference is that I like KH Yaoi. I'm new to KH but between Roxas and a few others, it has some very cute boys.
MGS only has Raiden and even then his prettyboy days are mostly over.
I think the hot MGS females outweigh the attractive MGS males.
Quasi-necro'ing this thread.
Finished watching a LP of MGS 4 and I have to say mixed feelings. On the one hand, it connected all the loose ends pretty well and did a brilliant job of tying in the "war is hell" theme that was so strong in the other games. Old Snake was a really interesting character to see. On the other hand, I felt like the nanomachines card was stretched a wee bit too far, and I'm not a huge fan of Johnny becoming a serious character. All in all, pretty good. Strongest points were Raiden's arc, Otacon's, Solid Snake's decline,and I found the Beauty and the Beast Corps to be very interesting.
In terms of how the games fall, I'd say MGS 4-MGS 2-MGS 1-MGS 3, with MGS 1 and MGS 3 being very close. They're all spectacular games, however.
Any thoughts? I was disappointed I didn't get to play through this, but sadly I do not own a PS3. DAMN YOU SONY.
