TGS 09: Download Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker right now

A brand new trailer has surfaced for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and it is stupidly amazing. If you're an MGS fan, you owe it to yourself to hit that link and check it out. The story sounds like a true-blue Metal Gear Solid game, and it's almost a shame that this is going to the PSP and not a console.

I am getting very excited indeed for this new game, and have the TGS demo all downloaded and ready to try. How about you chaps, want to try it right now? You can download the demo from this torrent or via IGN.  Installation is easy - just check the release notes below for installation.

Pumped for more portable MGS, or are you longing for a console version?

Here's how to install it:

# You need Firmware 6.0 on the PSP (Not if you use version.txt ;))
# Download and unzip the file below.
# Install the file by going into USB Mode on the PSP.
# On your computer go to the PSP folder, then the game folder, then drop "NPJH90063" into that folder.


Enjoy the demo, and know that if you get a rank of A or S you get an exclusive PSP wallpaper. Also, if you have a friend with this demo, you'll be able to play co-op.

HOW TO GET IT TO WORK ON 5.50 GEN-B!

First of all, make sure you have CFW 5.50 GEN-B.
Now get into recovery mode > Advanced > Toggle USB (flash0)

Now on your PC, create a text file in notepad and copy/paste the following line:

release:5.55:
build:3062,0,3,1,0:builder@vsh-build6
system:50781@release_550,0x05050010:
vsh:p6399@release_550,v50953@release_550,20090415:
target:1:WorldWide

(NOTE: In notepad this will appear as one line, keep it like that)
Save the text file as call it ''version.txt''

Now, go to Computer > Memory stick (Flash0) > VSH > ETC
Here you will find the version.txt file. Make a backup and then copy the version.txt file you just made there. Overwrite it.

Now, you will ''trick'' the game so it thinks you have firmware version 5.55, while you actually have 5.50.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.

Gotta go with Vaporeon as it is absolutely adorable and makes for a great Water-Type. I'd upload a photo, but my internet is being screwy.

My new least favorite type of team mate in Heroes of the Storm: they guy that declares the game is over after the enemy succeeds on one objective completion.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.

So I decided to tinker around with some assets in Source Filmmaker and make a still image. Kind of a Jurassic Park-inspired thing with dino assets from that Ark game. Care to offer some comments, critique, etc.?
