Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection... Problems [20 Mar 2008|01:01am]

tidegear
Well, it turns out that the Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection isn't as great as it seemed. Luckily, I still have my original copies of the games and hopefully you do too. Sorry to anyone I may have mislead with my previous excitement! Clearly, I didn't mean to.

Good:
-It appears that Metal Gear Solid 2 is the Substance version and is intact.

Bad:
-Metal Gear Solid doesn't include the VR Missions disc nor is it like the Japanese Integral version, it seems.
-No inclusion of The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2.
-Metal Gear Solid 3 doesn't include disc 2 or 3. (So the MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake and some extra modes are missing!)

Just a heads up. If you're new to Metal Gear then instead of the Essential Collection I suggest you look for...
-Metal Gear Solid
-Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (aka Special Missions in the PAL regions)
-Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance
-The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2
-Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence

...not to mention the other Metal Gear games the pack didn't begin to include in the first place!

Hope this post helps some people!

P.S. I acquired Metal Gear Solid Mobile for my mobile device today and it looks pretty cool! (I have Verizon and your service may vary.) It seems to be a non-canonical spin-off of sorts rather than a remake of any of the existing games.

For those of you who might not know... [24 Jan 2008|01:13am]

tidegear
For those of you who might not know, if you have the North American release of MGS3 Subsistence you will need important codec frequency information for the MSX games not included in the games' manual so view the FAQs here...
http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mgo/uk/mgo_02_faq.html
or here...
http://rapidshare.com/files/86172025/Metal_Gear___Metal_Gear_2_-_Solid_Snake_FAQs__for_MGS3_Subsistence_.zip.html (A backup of just the MG & MG2SS FAQs)

Additionaly, I've updated my Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2 - Solid Snake MSX Versions (for Windows) to v13...
New/updated in this release (v13):
1. Replaced the tap code chart with a list of codec frequencies. (Based on the “MGS3 SUBSISTENCE ONLINE SUPPORT SITE” FAQs)
2. Renamed the filename of the controls text file to “Controls.txt”.

Enjoy!

Mobile Phone Version of Metal Gear [22 Jan 2008|11:33pm]

tidegear
Today, I found that the mobile phone version (the MSX version with added features and tweaks) of the first Metal Gear is now available here in the US. My carrier is Verizon and I don't know what other carriers have, or will have, the game available. Additionally, it's possible this means the US will also receive the mobile phone version of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake! Look out for it!

I already have the MSX Metal Gear games with my copy of MGS3 Subsistence (The Subsistence versions of the games are based off of the enhanced mobile phone versions), and emulated via PC, PSP, etc. but it's nice to have yet another platform to play Metal Gear on!

Ac!d^2 [16 Sep 2005|04:58pm]

Frankly, I'm kinda shocked no one has talked about MGA^2 much today. I understand the MGS4 buzz, and all, but come on. Just watch the trailers. It looks SO good. Although I LOVE the first it sounds like Ac!d^2 will fix some of the issues other people had with the first.

New Ac!d^2 Site!:
http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mga2/english/index.html
(Has the new TGS trailer and lots of fun stuff to read/ogle!)

As for the Solid Eye binoculars, I HIGHLY doubt it's required to use them, in fact I'm sure of it. (To shut up the Whiney McCry Babies!) It sounds like a fun optional thing. Sure it's dorky, but it's free with the game and adds some fun gimmick value.

Hey did anyone catch that feature on Hideo Kojima in Official PS2 magazine? Check out that Union-Jack-t-shirt-tucked-into-trousers combo. All I can say is that I would NOT eat snakes, grasshoppers or bees.

MGS wallpapers anyone? [19 Mar 2005|11:00pm]

Hi, I'm new here, this is my first post. I own MGS1, MGS2 and MGS3. I didn't really like MGS1, but I loved MGS2 and of course, MGS3! I admire Kojima-sama greatly.

My question is: does anyone know a nice site for MGS wallpaper? I would appreciate it if you posted any WPs, if you have any.
