    It's exciting news, to be sure! Those two are my new favorite Quick Look duo (not counting anything with Vinny), and MGS is my favorite series, so I am HYPED.

    Note: It is a PREMIUM FEATURE, people. Keep that in mind.

    Oh man. I have the HD collection and have thought of playing through that, since MGSIV was my first experience (and I really enjoyed it). I just don't know that I have the tenacity and patience for it though. I will watch the shit out of this, though. Good on Drew.

    Oh, I moved this to the Metal Gear Solid forum, because it is about a specific thing (but I secretly did the franchise, not the game, in the hope that they move on to MGS2 when they finish MGS1).

    Well, it's not really an Endurance Run. Thanks to promises they made way back when they can't make those premium only, so much like Brad's DMC adventures, this is not an Endurance Run.

    Eh, as long as the premium content is good I don't care if it's live or not (they'll probably do a few of these live). I'm guessing the first video will be free for all, the others premium. Getting people hooked like that.

    I know the duders are tired of hearing "Endurance Run!" but I enjoy those so much that I want them to be a constantly ongoing thing. I want one endurance run going every day of the year. Split them up and rotate the pairs of players so they each do one endurance run every year or less. And then charge for it. Make it premium content at the least. I'd even pay extra for that content. If it's something that is such a hassle to produce, then make it a money-making production. I would pay another $5/mo just to get another hour or so of new ER content each day. I bet a lot of others would, too.

    I doubt they'd do this. It's just a fan request. But I'd pay for it. And if they don't, that's fine, too :D

    And I just (as in, half an hour ago) found a pristine copy of MGS for my Playstation. The last time I tried to play along with an episodic playthrough of a game, I finished by episode three of twenty-four.

    Oof, you played the wrong two Metal Gear Solid games. I don't care what Jeff says, one and three are where it's at.

    Having tried to get through MGS recently for the first time and finding the controls extremely hard to adapt to, and the game itself feeling super dated, I'm excited to see what Drew thinks jumping in for the first time.

    I'm trying to think of the last time Drew played a mainstream game on video (that wasn't just a UPF multiplayer-fest), and I am coming up completely short.

    @kevin_cogneto: Everyone either likes even or odd numbered MGS games, so here's my dissenting opinion:

    2 and 3 are the best. Fuck 1 and 4

    He is a video production guy first and foremost (especially in between when Vinny left and when Jason was hired) so they only bring him out to cover games that nobody else can.

    Aye, I just think it'll be interesting to see if he would enjoy something like this or not, since it's definitely not his usual style.

    I'd be interested to see if they could genuinely defend this not being a Endurance Run and that they didn't just alter it slightly to be able to charge for it.

    Episodes past the first could be live, which sounds like a good enough distinction to me.

    As another person who has never played a Metal Gear game before, I am very much excited. Wait, I take that back. I rented the NES one as a kid, accidentally changed the radio frequency and couldn't figure out what it was, then gave up on it and was totally out of console gaming when Solid came around (too busy chasing "babes"). So this will be a whole new world of references I'll finally understand! Cardboard boxes and exclamation points, HO!
