As most of you are aware by now, Konami will be shutting down the MGO servers on 12 June, 2012. I admit, I haven't played the game since launch in 2008, but I enjoyed every minute and hour I poured into the online portion of Metal Gear Solid 4. So I'm attempting to create an effort to join any of you fellow duders who also enjoyed the game to play the game from now until the final moments. So if you are interested, please post your PSN ID. I will update the list within the next week (6 days at the latest), and try to get everyone organized. My PSN ID is KoduX, if anyone is interested.
Me and my friends were some of the first FOXHOUND's in the game. The day they released the updated rankings, I get a message from my friend Eddy, creaming his pants that he earned the rank of FOXHOUND, and all subsequent ranks preceding it, such as FOX, Doberman, and Hound. The first thing I did was, since I only got FOX, if I remember correctly, was go straight into Sneaking.
I still remember playing six hours of consecutive Sneaking. In that whole six hours, as Snake, I only died three times. I won every single game, and I must have racked up hundreds of stuns. Me and Otacon kicked so much ass that, sure enough, by the time I was done, I was FOXHOUND. The elite of the elite.
MGO is probably the most unique shooter on the market. No one else comes close to doing what it does, and just as this new Metal Gear Online appeared to replace the old, I hope another one appears sometime in the future. Metal Gear Online is just too special to let go of forever. The MGO in Peace Walker was fun, but it was miles away from the complexity in the real-deal.
Let's do this! I'm GalacticPunt80 on PSN. My MGO character is Solidus_George or something to that effect. He's a middle-aged black guy who is now dressed extra-goofy, since Konami unlocked all the costume parts.
I played MGS3 online for real, but only dicked around in training/tryout sessions with this. Down for whatever if you Giant Bombers want to give it a proper send-off. "Not Like This: La-Le-Lu-Le-Lo Edition"
