    Of the bigger games journalism sources out there, GameSpot and IGN have both given The Phantom Pain a 10/10 rating. Meanwhile, unsettling reports of the game's competitive multiplayer being stuck behind a paywall are surfacing. The critics who got review copies of MGS V: TPP before release did not get to experience the online segment (which is not yet functioning), so their impressions are based on the campaign only. This means that we're probably looking at a stellar singleplayer with some very dodgy stuff that's going to be happening online at or post-launch.

    I get that this is Kojima's last game with Konami, probably the last proper MGS game and all that, but I still don't think it's a good reason to pay for microtransactions. Firstly, because it's a waste of your money; secondly, because by giving Konami money like this you're basically saying that you don't mind this shitty practice and are actively supporting it, thus the more people make use of it the more we'll see of it in other games. :p

    You have a good reasonable point Bamul thing is i just don't care anymore i want the series to end here for good now then i can just leave AAA industry crap for awhile and wait with my tongue out for Bloodstained shadow of the night

    Anyway on the topic of metal gear i thought i might share a story with all (counts) 3-4 of you, i was gifted metal gear solid as a present by my dad after a rough couple of days at school i was having problems there and not knowing how to really cheer me up he bought a game he thought i would like, fast forwade to the game blowing my mind with its incredible graphics amazing action cool main lead and all that, and even if i had a bad day i knew i was coming home to an exiting adventure i could lose myself in.

    Fast track to December 2001 and after another bad year a large package was waiting under the tree Metal gear solid 2 and a brand new PlayStation 2 as i started it up and the opening scene of a man who looked awfully like solid snake was walking across a bridge in Manhattan in the middle of a storm and my first thought was "Wow" as a little baby i had no idea about what the game was trying to teach me about the internet AIs and the meaning of passing on your legacy, i even went to the only place with internet in town the local libary to reserch what all these things ment, it was a crazy ride from start to finish and i adored every second of it.

    A few years later i saw on the television that MGS 3 Snake eater Had been released and was taken the very next day to purchases it and as tradition goes it blew my mind the origin of the patriots, the cobras, ocelot, the boss legacy, the origin of the philosophers legacy the origin of big boss, it was a roller coaster i will never forget hell just looking over on the desk i can see the 600+ page glossary i made of all the technology and themes present in the games just sitting on my desk with a heavy cover of dust, that is not even counting the best ending sequence any metal gear has ever had.

    Then came MGS4 Guns of the patriots a game that brought closure to a series i had been following almost religiously nearly my entire life, it brought to me a sense of finality for solid snake a legacy of a hero among heroes a true patriot, and the hour plus long ending answered every question i had in a satisfactory way i was completely happy but it would not be the end not by a long shot.

    Because MGS Peace walker had just launched to flesh out the world that big boss wanted to create a world that the boss herself invisioned a world without borders or nations, The EVA tapes present in the game brought almost as much life to the boss as the ending of three had and i was happy to be back in this continuation of the story of Big boss himself.

    And now we come to MGS5 ground zeros and the Phantom Pain a game i will research and dig deep into and discover what kojima is tying to teach me as a player and i will hopefully enjoy every moment of it!

    Anyway thanks for reading what may be my longest post yet :D

    Haha, sounds like a helluva ride. I did not get into MGS as soon as you did, only in my early teenage years when my brother started playing them. We'd sit in front of the TV watching the cutscenes together. :lol: But MGS wasn't as much "my" series as it was my brother's. For me personally, Witcher 3 has a similar role to how you see MGS V: TPP. After playing the two previous games (completed the second one 4 times) and reading all 7 books from the series, I really wanted to savour W3 as the last part of Geralt's adventures... hence why I've put over 150 hours into the game already and the end is still nowhere in sight. I want to enjoy all it has to offer. :D

    Tomorrow's the day! I can't wait. It's one of my favourite series of all time. I stuck with it from the beginning and it's lovely to see all these cool changes to the formula. Ground Zeroes was really good and I am almost certain that The Phantom Pain will deliver in every way possible.

    V has come to!
    I've tried it a bunch and it's amazing. The prologue is just fantastic and very tense, almost like a horror game. Also the game runs great on PC, a very good port.

    The game is pretty fun and it has some of the best boss fights in the recent years, so I recorded one:

    Damn dude, you finished the story in 30 hours? You must have only done story missions or something.

    Also I just found that door on the third floor of the Medical Platform. Uh, yeah... I'm interested to see how that plays out.
