Brad, that IS Master Miller, Kojima confirmed it. Why he goes by both Kazuhira and McDonnell apparently has something to do with his being born in Japan after World War II.

I'm torn, I love Metal Gear, and I want to play this, but I don't want to buy a PSP. I've also heard that CO-OP is sometimes almost mandatory to move on, and I won't have any CO-OP buddies available :(

Dude this game looks more X-Com than the new XCOM, researching weapons, building your squads, running missions, it seems pretty awesome.

Edit: Alright, it seems like Vinny agrees.

Edit2: Leaving a body in plain sight is not how you stealth. Leaving the screen does not help you stealth.

47 minute quick look? I assume this means they'll get through almost an entire cut scene.

I played portable ops until all my recruited characters ran out of stamina, if this is more of that I'm not sure I'm interested.

Yep.  When I see an APC with guards around it, I think, "Hey, I'm going to run up in front of that APC's gun and start shooting the guards.  This will go swimmingly."

That's a long quick look. I think rockets and grenades might have put the vehicle down.

But you'd expect talking during a walkthrough, and none during a Quick Look so the viewer can get a taste of the voice acting and story?

I always think the people bitching about Brad's playing are lifeless and bitchy trolls but my reaction after this video falls somewhere along the lines of GRAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHHH
 
I'd write several paragraphs about the stuff that annoyed me here, but noone would read it, I would just get a bunch of "Quit bitching" replies, so screwit.
 
Game's great by the way.

Ashley Wood is also responsible for the excellent graphic novels which came out well before any of the PSP game or digital comics, however on a side note from experience the novels are hard as fuck to find took me over a year to acquire them all.

It is kinda funny how Vinny is ACCIDENTALLY providing more information about the game than Brad.
 
"Oh man you should get one of those [robots]." There is a Mother Base portion where you can build your own Metal Gear.

"So can you shoot the balloon out of a gun?" There is a Fulton balloon launcher.
 
"You should tie a balloon to that armored vehicle and add it to your inventory." You can actually do that, ha ha!

I like how they play these without knowing much. Like how to switch the aiming camera.

You can check what the enemy specializes in by using the analyzer after you knock them out. You can also set the item and weapon buttons to quick swap in the options.

After finishing the entire game by myself and then reading about everyone saying how it's impossible to play alone, I think I'm Superman.

I hate to be this guy, but watching people who don't seem to know anything about the Metal Gear franchise play the newest Metal Gear is absolutely obnoxious.
 
Did no one at Giant Bomb play Portable Ops?

I'm pretty sure Brad has played them all, probably except PO. I don't know how not playing the least viable game in the series makes him no nothing about MGS.

I'm more concerned with the fact that Brad doesn't seem to realize that knocking people out means that they will get back up. :P
