Metal Gear Solid 3D to have elements of MGS4 and MGS:PW

10:15 AM on 07.17.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

There are a a lot of incredible 3DS games on the horizon (Super Mario, Luigi's Mansion 2, and hopefully Mega Man Legends 3 to name a few), but not many of them offer the same guarantee of quality as Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (scheduled for release this November). It's easily my favorite game in the series, for its humor, its drama, and perhaps most of all, its genuine focus on survival. Instead of utilizing the healing factor system that's sneaked it's way into so many games of late (including Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker), Snake Eater requires you to work at staying healthy. That means keeping your stomach full by hunting and eating a variety of wildlife, including snakes, crabs, and of course, tree frogs. You also have to manually patch up your injuries with some mini self-surgery. Otherwise, your wounds won't go away, no matter how many rations you eat. Those little details go a long way to make the game's world feel like a real place.

That's why I'm a little worried to hear that elements of Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker are making their way into Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D

According to a recent interview with Nintendo Power, the game's producer Yoshikazu Matsuhana said:"The player controls and some other well received elements from MGS4 and Peace Walker have been implemented into the game" and "The camera from Subsistence has been adopted, as well as elements of the free roaming camera system that was implemented in MGS4 and Peace Walker."

Other than the multi-player and the camera, I can't think of too many elements from MGS4 and Peace Walker that I'd want tacked on to MGS:SE3D. I do hope they keep the Ape Escape-based bonus game in there though, with the apes swapped out for Animal Crossing characters maybe?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.

Being a video game-focused website, it's not often I get to gush about Godzilla. So have a link to one of my favorite tracks in the entire series:

Fallout 4 really does bring back memories. Specifically, memories of finding unlikely loot on a animal's corpse. I'm just grateful that Bloatfly didn't know how to use that 15 pound flamethrower it was apparently carrying in its bum bag.

I no longer require seasoning for my Thanksgiving dinner because between the Lightning post here and Undertale beating Fallout 3 in the "best game" vote on GameFAQs, I have all the salt I need. (Image) [img][/img]

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.
