The story was fairly throwaway for me. They did manage to get me to care about killing Damien, but otherwise I really didn't care about Clara dying or what happened to Maurice.

I enjoyed the game mechanically for the most part, but just too much repetition. As some others have said, it reminds me of the first Assassin's Creed, but with a weaker story and less focus. So much of the side content was the same type of mission just repeated endlessly. I started this game thinking I may go for the platinum trophy. Now I don't even want to pick it up and play it again, it's exhausted me.

Welcome to Dan and Jason! I am glad to see some new blood in GB and am looking forward to their contribution to the site. Honestly, I could care less if they were two white guys or if they were a dyslexic giraffe and a blind panda. My trust in the GB team is that they hire people based on what they can bring to the table to improve the content on the site.

Smores is pretty fucking amazing, but cherry is a close second for me.

Frosted Cherry is the pinnacle of Pop-Tarts flavours.

@oldirtybearon: Thanks much for the detailed description. It does sound pretty damn good. I honestly haven't played an MGS game since 2008 with MGS4, so I feel like I may need something to get me back into the MGS mythos before I look to pick up GZ. I'll have a look at a bit of the gameplay on Youtube, but I am very strongly leaning towards just buying it on PSN.

i think if you go look for a physical copy you might find one cheaper than 20 bucks

I would love to do this, but I live in The Bahamas so buying physical games here is a little tricky unless it's a big time AAA release (CoD, NBA2K, etc). Couple that with the cost of shipping and import duties and price wise it may not be much different than the $20 to just download it.

Maybe I'll just have to find a playthrough of it on Youtube and watch a bit of it to see what I'd be getting into. Either way I'll make sure I at least learn the story before GZ. Thanks for the advice everyone.

I've played MGS1, 2, 3 and 4, but I missed out on Peace Walker. Given that it seems to be set in a time period just before Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain, I'm wondering if it's worth getting the digital PSN version and playing through that before Ground Zeroes launch.

I know no one here has actually played Ground Zeroes yet, but I would like to know from those who have played it, how vital do they feel it is to the overall MGS story? Is it worth $20 for the HD version of the game?

I honestly thought this was going to be a no brainer for a high score across the board. I'm a bit shocked and a little disappointed it didn't review better. I'm still going to play it but I probably won't hang onto it after finishing it.

I had hoped it would myself, but I had to temper my expectations when there were some previews around a few months back that seemed worrisome. Previews are usually almost always positive, so for this to have some questionable previews was a red flag. So disappointing though, as I LOVED Thief 1 and 2. Never played 3. Also I was trying to decided on what game to get for my PS4 to tide me over until Infamous: Second Son. It was really between this and Tomb Raider: DE, now I'm thinking I might go for Tomb Raider.

Mostly digital for me. Much easier since I don't have to deal with the hassle of importing from the US and quicker too. Also I had my first PS4 have the rare "disc constantly trying to eject" issue, so I'm a bit scared of discs right now.

So I'm a multi-platform guy, who bought a PS4 first and is looking to get an Xbox One in the near future. The only part I have questions on is the cable/satellite integration. The thing is that I live in The Bahamas and that means I don't have US cable/satellite providers so I'm not sure how well that particular function will work for me here. It's not a deal-breaker, but I'd like to know what I'm getting into.

I'm curious for those who have an Xbox One outside of the US, what's your experience like with hooking up cable/satellite through it? I have asked other gamers I know here, but most of them bought a PS4 and the few I know that did get Xbox Ones haven't hooked them up to any cable/satellite.
