So many, but not going to lie, I still get a little choked up during "This is good, isn't it?" in MGS4. One of my favorite final lines in a story, ever.

@theacidskull: I thought the presentation was a little rushed, but other than that, I was pretty satisfied with the story beats that it resolved with. Seemed like a logical end to it. But yeah, I'm a big LoS fan too, so I'm curious to see where they take Castlevania next. Always wanted to like the older games, just couldn't get into them very much.

@theacidskull: They won't make another one. MercurySteam has repeatedly said that this is it for them(in multiple sources), and that LoS, MoF, and LoS2 will serve as a trilogy. I mean, I'm sure there will be more Castlevanias, just not in the LoS canon.

@yummylee: It's Miller. I just think it's "evilish revenge" Miller, after he loses body parts.

I'll yell and say unkind things at the game if it does something SUPER dumb, but that's about it. No physical abuse.

Sorry, bit of a tangent. More to your question, I'm 26, male, live in Arkansas, currently am working full time, but seeking to go to college(late bloomer) for psychology/criminolgy dual major. Still in the application process. Trying to get into College of the Ozarks.

Honest question: Will you be able to go for free? I hear students do not pay tuition, and students NEED to work to cover many of their educational costs there. If that what you are hoping for, or is it just close by to where you live?

Well, I really like what I've seen of the place academia-wise, and I actually really like the sound of the work program. I'm 26, and have worked full-time since I got out of high school, so the idea of just going to school and not having a job much actually really bums me out, so I'm interested in how all of it works. Plus, one of my best friends went there, and recommends the place in the highest regard(she's not far from the same economic bracket as me, as well), as does everyone else who's gone there that I know. Christian campus, which I would prefer when studying something like psychology(base it more off Biblical principles, though I'm not interested in Biblical counseling itself). Has some good mission opportunities and such. Plus, pretty location(the stuff that isn't the main strip in Branson), and only four hours away from home. It would still allow me to visit my family, my nieces, so on with at least a little regularity, so I'm not just a complete stranger.

Obviously, I won't be able to go for completely free, because that isn't how it works. You still have to pay for books/room and board(though getting into a summer work program can alleviate the room and board part). So yeah, long story short, there's a multitude of reasons, though the work program is one of them.

Yes, I'm a very active Christian(Southern Baptist if you want really specific, though that's not the most important detail by a longshot), though I kind of cringe when I think of it as just being "religious". It's a part of my being, my character, not just some activity that I take part in. Yes, I go to church, read my Bible, pray, all that jazz...but the relationship that's at the heart of it is the most important, and how it influences my day to day life.

@gunslingerpanda: I think you never played MGS games before. Almost everyone has a torture scene and in MGS4 they also talk about rape. Just to name to example of "horrors of war"

Child soldiers are also a prominent thing. In Metal Gear Rising, one child gets really brutally injured(as well as some nasty implications for others). Otacon was seduced by his stepmother. Some people think that Meryl was also raped in MGS1. Yeah, there's always been this stuff in Metal Gear. Just because stuff like Johnny Sasaki exists doesn't mean that the other stuff cease to.

I'm just going to stand over here and slow clap.

Considering I thought it was a fantastic start, I'm even more excited about TPP than I was before.
