    I’ll probably get that, even though I already own all of these games, except for Peace Walker.

  • Crash Ōkami

    Oh I am getting that, and I own each game in each edition it’s ever come out. More Metal Gear is never bad :P

  • Wolf1888

    I guess you are right :P
    All this Metal Gear fuss happening lately made me start a complete run through all over again. (MGS, then MGS2, then MGS3, then MGS4, then MGS Peace Walker (when I’ll actually get it), and then I consider trying Rising, just for the heck of it. And then….. MGSV, HELL YEAH BABY!

  • Crash Ōkami

    Rising, the story was mediocre. Blade Mode was its redeeming quality for me, it was damn fun.

    Peace Walker, do get it. Playing it on my PSP since it came out plus the HD edition, it’s a blast to play and one of my favorite Metal Gear games. It’s so next-gen that it doesn’t feel like it really belongs to the PSP, in the vein of, it’s got so much content implemented so good that you don’t even notice. The whole PMC stuff justifies the co-op (which, itself, is great and doesn’t lag noticeably), the whole part-collecting for your own Metal Gear is only done when you beat bosses, the graphics are wow for a 2010 PSP game — it would easily be a Vita title with all these.

    Well, I’m convinced.

    I wasn’t really on the fence anyway, I knew I had to play it. I can’t be a real MGS fan if I don’t play all the games.

    I’ll probably get the HD edition on ps3, as I do not own a PSP. I’ll buy it as a cd, with a box and all. I’m kind of a collecting fan, so yeah… Digital purchases don’t have much value to me.
