Unfinished: Metal Gear Survive 01/17/2018

Brad teaches us all of his survival tips. First, never drink the dirty water!

Sometimes we look at a game before it's done. When that's the case? Well... it must be Unfinished.

Kind of excited to see how this ends up looking... MGS V is a damn fun game to play.

Whenever those awful zombie missions popped up in MGSV I definitely thought "Man I wish the whole game was against these enemies and also there were shitty shoehorned crafting mechanics." Recycling as much content as you can from MGSV is not a good look for your first post-Kojima Metal Gear game.

I had it on in the background while making my daughter dinner and for some reason the audio looped with brad saying “basically if your hunger drops to 40 that’s the max your health can be, stamina” but the video kept playing.

It rolled that way for almost two minutes! I have no idea why my phone decided to troll me like that but I reloaded it and it was fine.

Also I want to play this

Update to my audio glitch, it now perfectly looped this dialogue with brand and Jeff

Brad “It’s just me and this pipe, right?”

Jeff “You got pipe, you got dust!”

Maybe it's because I am a Kojima loyalist, but I really hate that they are even covering this game at all. Feels like disrespect.

I guess if this ends up fun to play, it ends up fun to play. It's still so hard to get a bead on what the design doc of this thing looks like though. Definitely interested in seeing reviews and impressions once this comes out.

Oh, wow.

I don't like defending things, or combat for no reason, which is what the zombies feel like to me. I think my ideal MGSV survival game would involve trying to get by by scavenging bases. Sneaking out food, trying not to get caught, maybe holing up in a cave somewhere and trying to keep wild goats out, at most.

You could feel Jeff's "Man, fuck this!" aura when Brad started mentioning hunger, thirst, and a dozen different ailments and injuries you have to cure with specific remedies you have to craft.

Looks interesting I'll say. The Metal Gear name seems to hinder more than it helps though. If they're just gonna go into an alternate dimension with its own jargon, I'd rather they make a completely new IP with a unique world with unique enemies rather than this weird conceit with crystal military zombies and crystal metal gear monsters. Plus it only pisses off MGS fans.

Ugh why does this actually look sort of fun. I don't think I have enjoyed a survival game since Don't Starve, but the gameplay and structure of this do look pretty fun.

This seems okay. I strongly believe that MGSV is mechanically the best playing game ever made so I wouldn't mind trying this out, it seems like it could become incredibly repetitive though.

This game continues to be a coin toss. Looks bad! But could be fun!

The early game is probably the biggest reservation I have now. Being in a condition where you have to drink dirty water, which means you have to throw up every 60 seconds is not good.

With the recent news of this game having both microtransactions and being forced-online all the time, in addition to everything we already know about this, it just keeps looking better and better. Definitely preordering this one.

Yeah man. Not like it has things everyone fuckin hates nowadays, like microtransactions and forced-online single player mode. Not like there's not a million boring-ass survival/crafting games that feature most of these exact mechanics. Not like it's boring, generic looking shit made on the name of a belovedly innovative and fantastic staple of video games since the fucking late 90s and PS1.

Nope, they just hate it irrationally because "Konami". I mean it's even a survival game with zombies! How original and fresh!

Why do they have Diamond Dogs markings on the Mother Base ruins? I thought the setup for this game was people got sucked through a portal after Skullface destroyed Mother Base at the end of Ground Zeroes when Big Boss was still leading MSF. How does anyone in this game know about Diamond Dogs?

This sure looks like a video game. They took every single game design and business practice trend from the last ten years and put it into an amalgamation of brown, everything both good and bad about video games from the last decade is in here.

Its almost amazing how Konami managed to greenlight a project that will make the most people angry. Im not gonna defend a bad corporation but you gotta give it to em if they do it to em

Watching a recent trailer, it clicked with me that this game is State Of Decay w/ Coop in the Fox Engine. Instantly shot to the top of my "looking forward to" list since I love State of Decay, and wish it had coop, and think MGS5 has some of the best gameplay in the last decade.

MGSV also had micro transactions and required online integration with the single player campaign for the FOB mode. We're seeing more and more games these days "require" a constant internet connection in the same way Dark Souls would. Whether "requiring a constant connection" means the game blocks you from playing it at all offline remains to be seen.

Don't get me wrong, I did not like it in MGSV either. I hated being put at risk of having my base invaded and it sucks that you are forced into this online mode in order to build additional bases and speed up your research and resource gathering rate. But let's not act like MGS Survive is the first game to do these things in the series.

If there is a competitive aspect to it like DayZ or Rust, microtransactions become a huge issue. But if it's strictly co-op, then I can see them being generally inoffensive.

Same. But with State of Decay 2 coming out pretty soon here (and also having co-op) I don't feel like I need two of these kinds of games in my life. Plus the idea of trudging up MGS for this, come on man

Plus it has hunger and thirst meters which seems to kill these types of survival games in co-op for me. I tried playing Don't Starve Together, but it was short lived because it's difficult to maintain the hunger and thirst of four people unless you fudge with the world seed. I can survive just fine solo though. These types of meter management survival games seem to have died with No Man's Sky.

@ttcfcl: Same here. State of Decay is one of my favorite games from last gen. I'll be giving the beta a honest shot and determine if I'll even bother with it though.

I absolutely loved the way MGSV felt and played. But I come to Metal Gear for a specific brand of crazy story, and this doesn't seem like it'll do that for me.

I've been playing the beta for the last few hours and it's a lot of fun. I've been a MGS fan since I was 12 and was reticent about this, but keeping an open mind it has a lot of potential. It'll be interesting to see the whole game and if they can flesh it out enough.
