Is this even allowed here?

I have said it before and I will say it again: If you rely on the cardboard box for every stealth encounter, you are never going to get better at Metal Gear games.

This is something that gets me aswell, sure the cardboard box is something people associate with the games, but I honestly never use them. If you don't want to be caught, stay out of the line of sight of enemies, not hide in a cardboard box in front of everyone. Also, there's a wet box because it's raining.

I think it's funny seeing people going into these games with such disdain for everything.

The Desmond story is terrible, it was a nice idea, but the way they've handled it and doled out the information is horrible. So boring, and it is such a small part of each game, that when they try to make it seem important, it pushed the story we've been enjoying throughout the majority of the game to the side. Honestly, the first game was cool where it had Desmond basically going, wtf there's more to this than meets the eye, but since then it's been shit.

I like how everyone is dismissive out of the gate, I quite like the fact there isn't much shown, something more trailers need to do.

The game is a good port.

@baillie: they should distance themselves from the only movement that managed to uncover weird connections, actual evidence, a popular Twitter hashtag, and the most change "gaming press" has committed so far because terrible people on the internet made threats that didnt mention it? All the "game bloggers" dismiss all this and mock ethics when they will not even be open to discussion and if you do move away from Gamergate you would just be chastised for coming from that movement and ignored even more. I guess it must just be the misogyny in my blood and the social construct of testosterone to be annoyed that consumer questions are being shut down and dismissed as hate

Or you can actually realise GamerGate as a whole will never get past the misogyny and bullshit no matter what happens.

Its the anti-GG side that is unwilling to talk. Covering your ears and shouting labels prevents GG from achieving its goal promoted over two months.

The only thing GG has promoted is how vile the gaming community can be towards women in gaming. Oh there's also that faint whisper I heard about gaming press having friends in the gaming industry. You know like Giant Bomb and Harmonix, Double Fine, SuperGiant Games, Samantha Kalman...

Wahh, wahh. I don't like GamerGate being misrepresented! Wahhhh. It's not being misrepresented. What you, I and everyone else sees IS GamerGate. If you want to actually look into the ethics of Gaming Journalism, then distance yourself from #GG.

Guys serious question here, is this Dan in the Botchmania video almost slipping on spilled beer at a local wrestling event?

http://botchamania.com/botchamania-258/

The incident occurs around 7:05 and I swear that guy looks just like Dan. Then looking up PCW it's a local wrestling organization in Norcal which makes me think it might be.

He is similar, but looks just like Dan is pushing it.
