    Anyone that gets Patrick is gonna benefit from his talents, clearly. I haven't read Kotaku in a few years, but as a fan of Patrick's work I will go out of my way to make sure to read his stuff.

    What? No way. This is not how I wanted to end GoTY deliberations if it's true. :'(

    @corevi: Ah. I was pretty obsessive at keeping mine at 80-85% when I was doing a no-kill run a long time ago. At 75% when dudes walked by me laying in tall grass or when I tried to make certain moves...

    The lack of a radar in MGS3's original release made it feel almost unreasonably difficult at times. Subsistence's camera makes that game BY FAR more playable and though not having the Soliton radar wi...

    Had a run yesterday where I successfully completed The Dark Room and defeated The Lamb without taking damage at all and got the Dead Boy achievement. That felt like quite an accomplishment. I'm not su...

    About 12 hours in, 130+ items unlocked, and 8 Mom Heart kills under my belt (and a Satan victory!) I don't really think this new version is going to win too many over since it's really just a remake...

    I'm in there like swimwear. Can't wait to get to crackin' away at this new version. I dumped about 75 hours in one month into the original and expansion earlier this year and I've been feeling the it...

    I run a server myself for some friends and we ran with 2x EXP rate and our drop rates are roughly 25% higher than the original game. We also did a bit of redundancy cleaning up in regards to what dro...

    Oof. I really wanted to like what I was seeing of this game but it's in some serious need of polish (which obviously could happen given it's not out until next year), but I'm also not a fan of random...

    It's a pain we never get over, but we do learn to live with. Best of luck to you in getting there. Take all the time you need. Much love to you, Jeff and your family.

  • PollySMPS posted a message on the post Metal Gear Scanlon - Part 06.

    @draxyle: I think it's a combination of the aiming being hyper sensitive and the framerate not being all that great. I believe the game runs at 30, but I think with the PSG-1's aiming controls get al...
