I was in a Wal-mart Today and as usual I went to the game department. I found something
very interesting, a gem among trash. Chocobo's Dungeon 2 Sealed with a black label and the
word squaresoft on the side. The game was ancient and there was a slight crack on the case,
but never the less everything is still in tact. I have not opened it yet. Any suggestions on
what I should do? Sell it? Keep and play it?
I've never played a metal gear solid game before. I have played both AC!Ds and I really
enjoyed them. I truly loved them because they reminded me of Phantasy Star Online Episode
3. I really like that game and THe whole card concept really was interesting (I never played a
Phantasy Star, Just the PSO and I hated the Online). Now back to MGS4, I knew that this
game was really different, But I was not expecting this to be so cool. Metal Gear Games focus
more on Avoiding combat than engaging Call of Duty Style. I had heard that but, never
thought about what that would be like. On the Surface telling a non-devout gamer about a
game that focuses on NOT fighting would sound awful, then again most of my friends think I
am retarded because I like Turn based games. Ok, Now I really like MGS4, I am just starting
the 2nd act and I think I has to be one of the best games I have ever seen. I feel like Snake
is a real person. If you squat to long his back hurt and you'll see him wince and hit his lower
back. Sometimes, he takes a while to get up. At first this may seem annoying, But digging
deeper this really allows for a connection to the character. You feel Snake's pain of rapid
aging and as much as I'd like to have young snake back this really adds and extra element
that no one really has done before. I have never been a die hard Konami fan in the past, but I recognize the small Snatcher and Policenauts easter eggs they have strewn about the game.
After playing a real gaming gem like MGS4 I would love to track down some of Konami's older
greats Like Symphony of the night and The beloved snatcher. Mabe one day Konami will
remake snatcher for PS3, I can only hope.
Okay, as many around me can relate I am pretty darn confused about the MGS4 Bundle. I
have heard gray/80 gray/40 black/80 black/40 and all configurations with and without
dualshock 3s. I thought sony quit making the 80 gb and was pulling support for the PS2? I'm
confused I saw today in Best Buy an advert for the 80 gb MGS4 bundle. I thought the 80 gb
was gone? Mabe it was just the 80 gb with motor storm. I am still waiting on conformation of
40 gb backwards compatibility, it really would not be hard for sony to do. Or if they just
released the PS2 downloads, all I want is Persona 4.
The added news of the 40 GB getting PS2 compatibility would be the most amazing thing ever.
I've had my share of feelings about this because of the option to create PS2 memory cards on
the 40 GB. Also, I am not completely sure of the insides to the 40 GB and the 80GB but I do
know that they are stripped of their PS2 hardware like the 60 GB had. I could be wrong or
right on the money, only time will tell but I hope that this is true.
