I'm not entirely sure how i feel about playing this game without an arcade stick, since i don't have one for ps4, so i guess i'll wait until i try it until i can decide whether i want to participate in this.

The twist is that Dan is going to play most of the game instead of Drew.

Solidus, cause those controls, whoah, i guarantee he'll struggle with them.

Am I the only one that genuinely found "Cayde-6 took the Cryptarch aside and showed him a sack of doorknobs. He decoded that mystery pretty quickly" pretty funny?

It's pretty great, especially when i just imagine Cayde-6 as Nathan Fillion.

@arbitrarywater: I think it was the first game I ever got for my Xbox way back when. The protagonist is a minor Gondorian Character who befriends Pipin in his character arc. You also get an elven magic user, a ranger, and basically an exact duplicate of the Rohan King's Daughter who becomes our protagonist's love interest in the last 5 seconds of the game even though he was after the elf at first. Even more excitingly, in the last 5 seconds of the game (Its a real jam-packed 5 seconds) You magically get teleported to the top of Sauron's tower for the most epic show down of last generation... yeah you fight the Eye of Sauron, the fight we all dreamed about.

...You fight the eye of Sauron with JRPG attacks... look it up if you don't believe me!

Although I do remember going into Moria as being really cool. But even as a kid I was cringing at the rest of the rubbish. Totally worth playing! ...Or you-tubing the ending and having a good laugh/cry.

Oh.... uh... spoilers...

Wait is this real, this sounds more like a parody or something.

I personallly would want to see them go the other direction and add a mode where you just have infinite super so everyone just spams them constantly. Imagine the chaos.

I think this choice really comes down to whether you want a single player game or a multiplayer game. Both games seem to have a decent amount of stuff to do, a lot of which is pretty grindy, in both cases.

Also keep in mind that while Destiny is getting updated, a lot of the major updates will be paid stuff, not to say that it doesn't have a whole lot of content already, but be prepared to pay more if you get into it is all i'm saying

I feel the need to finally comment somewhere. DARPA is a real thing, Kojima didn't make it up, as dumb as it sounds. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Mmm, makes me think that this game is just like the sequel to Dark Souls set billions of years later. At some point we're gonna link a fire right?

I'm not entirely convinced all 4 races are part of the Darkness, the Cabal especially. Also those Cabal guys are like 100% 40K Space Marines, Imperial stuff and all.

As for the whole time travel thing. I'm pretty sure the game implies that the Strange is from the future or something, if you read the description of the gun you get given.

@corruptedevil: That seems pretty consistent with what most people say, although Dan has claimed multiple times that 2 is considerably better.

He also thinks Peace Walker is bad and that MGS ISN'T just like one of his japanese animes, he's fucking insane.

I'm glad he stood up for Majora's Mask today, but dissing on Peace Walker while saying MGS3 is one of his favorites? That's just madness.

I question whether Dan even likes Big Boss.

If @danryckert hates Peacewalker he need not apply for Metal Gear Solid V as its a LOT of just that. Which is also a shame because Peacewalker is a GREAT game. I can see people skipping it when it was only on the PSP but like c'mon it plays GREAT on the Vita and PS3.

Also to answer the inital post. Metal Gear Solid is still in my top 5 of all time and I have a fun time every time with the game play and story. I just find its brand of quirk really fun. Its not that the Metal Gear Solid games control poorly its that they are just very different and non-conventional or at least were until the re-release of Metal Gear Solid 3 when it had a straight up 3rd person camera put in.

Plays great? What...that game plays TERRIBLY, i couldn't even bring myself to finish that piece of crap! While i agree that Dan is insane, this is one of the times he's right, Peacewalker is terrible. Urgh, am i really agreeing with Dan on something, everything he says is crazy, this is a bad sign.
