Glad I don't have a PSP because I would have bought this game and then raged at having to restart the entire missions every single time I died. Though I do like everything else so maybe next time add a checkpoint system and everything will be sweeeeeeeet.

*sigh* Lotsa butthurt fanboys here it seems, that is to say, nothing new here.

This is why I appreciate the quick look posts; at first during the video I thought "Hey this might be something worth getting. It looks cool."
Literally the SECOND action started I remembered why I dislike:
- Metal Gear
- Action Games on the PSP
- The PSP controls
Phew!

Same.  Almost pulled the trigger last night, because I love the series. But it just didn't seem like Brad was having any fun.  And $40? Really?

Metal Gear game. 
 
Designed around CO-OP. 
 
For fucks sake NO. 
 
STOP DOING THIS SHIT. LET US HAVE SINGLE PLAYER GAMES.

no gameplay until 17 minutes into the quick look, lol

I've now tried to watch this twice and both times I've fallen asleep.  I don't know if it is the soothing quality of Brads voice or if I'm just bored by this game.  I really want to watch this because I'm at least sort of curious about it but that's proving difficult.  Maybe I should go slam some Red Bull or something and try watching it again.

Somebody tell me the font that is used in the motion comic thing and intro. Those big fat letters red letters. I love them. Send me a PM with the name of the font.

People who are bad at videogames still love to play them. So, his opinion would be trustworthy to people who play like he does, which, I would wager, is actually a lot.

@BionicMonster: Awful lot of fanboys in here..

I am definitely interested.

This Game totally awesome!

Stupidly long cutscenes. Consider me sold.

Edited by MythDarK

Hmm, so if I didn't like the recruit stuff from PO, why should I even bother with this game? Kinda didn't like the whole building a team thing. For me Metal Gear games are about one guy infiltrating. 

I basically loved MGS 1 & 2 (also liked the old MG's) but didn't play any other MGS than those two, 
and a little of PO.

47 minute MGS QL.
 
So i guess we'll just be watching the opening cutscene. Hi-OH.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

It's funny, when I first saw that this was about 47minutes long and it was a video about a Metal gear game. My first thought was that we would be seeing 10 minutes of game play and the other 37 minutes would be cut scenes. lol
I felt the same thing when he said he had been playing for a few hours.

@MythDarK: Well you haven't played the best MGS then. You should really check out snake eater sometime...

Nah, just half of it.

When there's a life bar at the top, that means you have to shoot the thing that's killing you.

Posted by Lobst

Every other game's dulled you to the notion that you can shoot at a tank with regular ballistics and damage it, apparently.

Brad talks about seeing through the clothes of the girl.
Vinny: "Can you do that on Snake as well?"
Brad: "No"
Vinny: *sadly* "Oh..."

Aw. Bless. Maybe there's a game out there for you with less reading involved?
Posted by Piranesi

It looks like it has a lot of depth (in a kind of Monster Hunter way) and I like that missions only take 15 minutes or so. However, the MGS series has become so bloated with fan-service that I just don't care enough. A bit too Marmite.
Posted by CressDX

I will buy this on day 1 :D

It'S CHICO TIME!

Posted by Eraser74

It seems to load much faster than my version of the game, why? I installed everything onto a memory stick, but the loading times are almost double that of what´s been shown in the quicklook!
 
Maybe they have the whole game on stick and not on UMD at all?

Posted by Rowr

did this really run for 20 minutes before the gameplay started...

This game is great and it controls quite well on the PSP as long as the action isn't too frantic.  IMO that is the problem with the PSP SOCOM games, during intense combat, the controls show how much this system needs a second stick.  Alas, PW shines most of the time.  
 
I've only played it in Single Player mode because I have no friends (sad, I know) and some of the Boss Battles can be a real test of patience, but aside from those moments I really love the way this game plays.  Story?  Yeah I suppose it has  one but to be honest I've skipped most of it just to get back to the gameplay.

i fucking love these long ass quick look videos.

I'm commander shepard and PSP is my favorite console; put your 360 into storage until ME3 comes out.

Edited by teekomeeko

I stopped watching this QL the first because, well, I own the game. I figured playing it would be more fun. After 83 hours (twenty of which are probably me being idle while I took a shower or getting blasted to oblivion by a boss), I come back to see it again for good measure.
 
The result is me watching Brad not want to play this so badly that even the most rudimentary mechanics are ignored and the typical GB lack of basic research into a game unless they already want to play it. Oh well, I love the game so it has no effect on me. Retcon hotness, y'all.
 
EDIT: I suddenly thought up better names for some of the MGS titles...
 
MGS3: Retcon Eater
MGS4: Retcon of the Patriots
MGS: Portable Retcon Ops
MGS: Retcon Walker
 
At the very least you know what you're getting into :)

Posted by XChairmanDrekX

I'm finding that this game holds up pretty damn well in single player.  Certainly infinitely better than Lost Planet 2.

*misses badly*
"as you can see the controls are kinda bad on the psp for this game"

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Having played this game more than a sane person should, I can say that the controls aren't that bad once you get used to them. Yes, it can take a while to get used to, but it's not that bad. Brad just needed to use more skill.

I cant stand a quick look when Brad is playing, he manages to make everything look boring and frustrating with his insistence on repeatedly trying basic strategy over and over until it works, and he faffs about in menus too much. Also he either doesn't like a game and in really down on it and gives no information about it or he gets so into it that he's too concerend with messing up his save game and wont do anything to jeperdise it and it gets boring.

I don't dislike Brad but he needs to watch back his QL's and then the other guys' to see where he's going wrong as you can tell that they're aware they are playing for and audience and he's not.

At 33:30 Vinny cracks a joke: "you should put a balloon on that armored vehicle and take it to your base".

And here we are with Phantom Pain coming out next year and you will be doing just that.
