scans from the 12 page preview
360indians.com - bit of a strange place to put up scans for MGS4? Anyway, I'm going to take Shane Bettenhausen's advice and keep myself pure and avoid all further media on MGS4 till launch. This game is going to be huge.
No one can deny Metal Gear Solid 4 is GOTY.
Yeah, I am done reading stuff. I just want this game!
Wanna bet that they("experts") will give GOTY award to some generic game like.....o lets say Gears of War 2?!
DONT CLICK THE LINK...MEGA HUGE SPOILERS IN THOSE SCANS.
Well maybe they should have took more scenes out of the game and put more in game content in it 15-18 hours of gameplay is awful.
"No one can deny Metal Gear Solid 4 is GOTY." I can. MGS4 will NOT be game of the year. Period. GTA IV will be GOTY for various reasons. MGS4 could get MOVIE of the year with its 30 minute cutscences maybe. lol
hahaha wow jack good one. funniest $hit i've ever heard in my life. I'm sorry but i just don't see GTA4 winning game of the yr when MGS4 is around. Not saying GTA4 can't cut it, but i have a lot more faith in kojima productions than i do in rockstar. GTA4 games are great for lightg playing but game of the yr needs to shake the gaming community and not just by sales. I need to see some gaming firsts. GTA4 might win at the end of the day not saying rockstar isn't talented but if i had to choose a side i will obviously go for the game i have been anticipating since 2005. @Iamback they can't give it to Gears of war 2. Maybe fable 2 but gears won't get it. If gears didn't get it first time with the little competition, they won't get it this time. Fallout 3, GTA4, MGS4, LBP (depends on the impact though).
Jack, I must say that even though I want that game badly... that one was pretty funny. hehehe I'll disagree with you, partly, and add to that MGS4 will be GOTY and win the Oscar for best movie. hehehe Btw, I didnt click the disagree button.
why do you guys gotta let the fanboys out. every person who talks crap about the cuts scenes obviously havent ever played the game or is a 13yr old......ya see back when games didnt have internet connectivity or super multiplayer asswhoopery games were very dependent one what we call A STORY LINE....YEAH i know games didnt used to be cookiecutter stories about aliens invadeing a world and your job to be to shoot the crap outta them..*cough* *cough* halo, gears, resistance, insert mediocre title here so because games were so dependent on their story lines and didnt rely on pure hype, (see examples above) to get by they had to draw people in and game devs knew this hence the reason we have ff7, the metal gear series, hell resident evil games even all story line driven.... now flash back to games today (and ill use my above examples again) those games the story lines really dont matter they all have the same one (boiled down to its most basic form) aliens bad you kill them save world.... gee real unique....and thats where games like metal gear came in story drives the game the plot the goals the WHOLE experience all the mgs games relied on plot and gameplay to drag you and make it addicting not the multiplayer thats once again not generic feeling or where its just based on the multiplayer...games this gen on both sides ps3 and 360 have all had a generic feel to them and maybe this one will change it
about GTAIV's reported 7 hours of cutscenes. I don't see why that would hurt MGS4's chances against GTAIV for GOTY. Most likely, GTAIV won't really be in the discussion anymore by the end of the year. Remember when Halo 3 won GOTY last year? Oh, that's right....
come across a game with crap story and good gameplay that was awesome in my opinion anyway. story drives gameplay those both combined are what keep you comeing back to a game.......me and a friend every sunday get spliffed up grill up food and play ff3 till our eyes bleed for good reason if a game is epic it will stand the test of time and only a handfull out there hopefully this will be one of em ++bubbles butter finger
Seriously. The previous games were innotivative. What makes you think this new one will finally get a GOTY award? 50gb of storage? Have we even seen a PS3 game benifit from the Bluray storage yet? Heavenly Sword was 6 hours long. Uncharted not much more than that. Does MGS4 have a revolutionary physics engine? No. What is MSG4 going to do that so new? You'll be able to use surrounding textures for camo... Hey neither of the games are out yet so no one knows for sure which will win but looking at history I place my bet on GTA IV. GTA III revolutionized the industry last generation. Not many games can claim that. Like it not. No exclusive DLC or fanboy emotion can change history. While MGS4 will be a great game and I'm buying it on day one at the end of the year GTA IV or Fallout 3 have a better chance at GOTY than MSG4. GTA IV is the favored title at this point.
and as much as i would love to see this game get game of the year. i can almost guarantee littlebigplanet well win it. if it is as awesome as it seems like it is going to be. people love giving goty awards to original ip's. i would be a happy camper if either of these games gets it. littlebigplanet. is going to be the biggest system seller of any console this year.
about LBP being a really good option for GOTY based on the fact that it is an original IP. If the game lives up to its promises, then I believe it will win without a doubt. However, I don't believe this will be the biggest "system seller" as usually those come from name brand games that people recognize, i.e. GTAIV, MGS4.
@jack It has no revolutionary physics engine? That's your best defense? I don't know if you remember, but Kojima tried that before in MGS2. Remember all the little effects like when icecubes on the countertop that would melt more slowly together than apart, or how the cardboard box withered away when it was raining outside? Do you remember what happened? I distinctly remember a couple of reviews complaining about this and saying that we'd rather have them spending time making the game longer rather than stupid effects. Metal Gear Solid 4 will have a gripping story, an incredible stealth battle system, some of the most amazing graphics we've ever seen, and it will have an online mode to combat single-player naysayers. This game has it all, and all you can say is "where is its revolutionary physics engine?" Its a big year for games, maybe bigger than 2007, but MGS4 will at the very least be a contender.
the games may have not featured physics,or shiny impressive things for that matter. but what will make this game GOTY? Story. it is the final chapter of imo the best storyline of any game series ever, it is going to be so epic. i cannot wait to see what kojima san has instore for us!
this game will touch a lot of people This game will make x box fans Crack and get a ps3 This game will smack mart pog and there armys in there faces This game is Exclusive to ps3
any 1 heard the TLC SONG DREAMS can come true this is what i think when ever ps3 fanboy site and trolls think mgs4 will be a spescial game i dont
i love Kojimas MGS-series i have played all of them.
"Closer to Metal Gear Solid 2 in feel than Metal Gear Solid 3" I found that a little interesting. But anyways, once the first leak gets out. That is the signal to hide in your bunker until launch.
I did too, but I don't see any reason to be surprised. MGS3 was in a jungle setting, featured different characters, and was a very different kind of stealth game than mgs1 and 2. I really missed Solid Snake, personally.
...And ONLY on My Baby;)PS3!!! ;-P
giggidy..... Can someone please confirm if this mag is UK and if so, out now? Your help will be greatly appreciated :)
Zhuk :P this game is GOTY 08 no xbot game can be GOTY if mgs4 is not goty then one of the other ps3 games will be GOTY
That once again there will be hardly any gameplay in the game, you might as well have gone to watch it at the movies, alot cheaper and less under whelming
Hmm...I really wonder why you only have two bubbles.
MGS4 - I'M GONNA OWN THIS GAME!!! Do you xbots want this too?: BUY A PS3!!!!! Ahahahahahahah!!!!! Edit: 1 disagree for what???? because I said I'm goig to own the game: "I disagree I'm going to know where you will going to buy the game and I will Stop you to buy it" - well of course! or because i said: Do you want that, buy a PS3 - " I disagree beacuse....beacause....I'm not going to buy a PS3, but I' will play MGS4 in my neighbour PS3...yes that's it" Or just because you xbot don't want MGS4....Ahahahaha...yeah sure, you are going to cry so much like a baby...Ahahahahahah
I haven't played any of the previous games. I dont know how that has happened. It's a bit like never having seen Sound of Music (which I haven't) despite it being on TV at least twice a year! What I can say is that I'm really looking forward to this game ... positively salivating! Hope I understand what the heck is going on lol :)
Well then get the collection of the first three.
Buy the essential collection for $30 and play the crap out of them
Ah, well, there's no doubt that you'll still enjoy the game, but I would recommend buying the Essential collection, and playing through them all, then you'll be ready. You don't have to, but not only will you have a hard time understanding a lot of what's going on, or what has transpired, you'll have missed out on one of the finest videogames series known to man. As long as you understand that MGS is a story of an old soldier, who has fought all his life to not be a tool of war or of government, dealing with the world that we live in, and that MGS4 is how that story it ends. Of course, it's waaaaay more complicated than that. Everything else that needs answered, you should find in MGS4.
Your not alone. Many of my friends didnt play the previous MGS games, actually, some did but didnt like them. The main complaint being the fixed camera angles. I'm just happy to see people like yourself/my friends now chomping at the bit to play the new MGS. If you only ever play one, then by the looks of it you definetaly picked the correct one :) Happy gaming S1nner. Oh and don't worry if your find the story hard to understand, once again your not alone. I've played everything MGS and I still don't quite know what the hell is oing on lol.
u have time .. play all the MGS games on PS1 and PS2 (MGS1 PSN ,MGS Essential edition.. ) its the most epic & Complex story in history of gaming . beside excellent gameplay and AMAZING BOSS DESIGN !
to Youtube the cutscenes from the first three. I did that, and pretty much got the jist of what's going on in the universe. I'd still like to play the games, I'm just saying, this is one OPTION.
Not needed. MGS4 has all base's covered. Imagine your new to the series, first time you meet someone in game you may not know who they are, or how they relate to the story/snake. Well, here's the clever bit. Hit "X" and buy the power of magic you will be shown cut-scene's, story board, dialog etc from the previous MGS games to help you catch up. Simple, but effective.
I'm in the same boat. I tried MGS2, but just didn't enjoy it; the stealth genre just isn't my cup of tea. Which is why THIS Metal Gear Solid actually has me interested in the series for once. I've always been impressed by the game and level of detail that Kojima puts forth, but the slinking around and tip-toe-ing of MGS and Splinter Cell just about kill me in execution. It's kind of interesting; never liked MGS or RPGs (as far as playing them), and this may be the year where I end up buying both (MGS4 and The Agency/Alpha Protocol finally have me interested).
all you ps3 fanboys think you are pro cause your getting a movie as a game???? im going to get gears of war 2 which is going to absolutely own the ps3s lineup and make them crack and buy a 360. GOW2 will be GOTY easy and no crappy movie game is going to come even close. al you sony droids need to grow up and buy a proper game. now go cry in a corner cause you wasted money on an overlarge paperweight that dosent do anything. get over it your not getting gears. oooooooo that hurts.
My god, how deluded are you. Wake up and smell the coffee, fairy-kid!
I'm really glad that I have more than one good game coming out on my console this year, plus a ton of other updates and unique features to look forward to. By the end of 2008, PS3 owners will be the only ones with a current-gen console. The 360 will be last-gen. Also, why do we still have these morons trolling PS3 news? It really is annoying now.
i almost read the spoilers :P psm3 daaamn you!!!!!!!!!!!! warning to everybody who is gonna play mgs4 and dont want spoiler! do NOT read THIS POST a guy on th forum says that this post reveals the grave taht snake visits. so DO NOT READ I REPEATE DO NOT READ
It's only tiny spoilers, minor details
PirateThom, i agree with you. Game of the Year 2008, 2009 and 2010.
I already have this title pre-ordered from Amazon, after watching the 15 minute gameplay video how could you not want to play this game? But really I've had enough of these stories already. Each story is going to try to top the next with giving more and more information, and the spoilers will slowly ruin the game for me.
makin up excuses, i dont care wot your opinion is slave, MGS4 WILL b the game of the year, its got my vote and my pre-order, gears will do well, but NOT on the scale of MGS4. NOTE. i completed gears of war on my pc the same day i bought it and i payed 30quid 4 it (wish i bought sum weed instead) ive NEVER compleed a MGS game the same day, itll b value 4 money all the way, 1last thing goldenzealot, every1 agrees wid ya as u can c. TOSSA
A metal gear solid game in a day, its takes 3 weeks just to watch the cinematic part, so it probably took you 3 weeks and 5 hours to complete, and as for game of the year, i bet you my house and car that it doesnt win GOTY
I will gladly take that bet. I mean, if you actually own a house and/or car. Why don't you keep your little xbot comments on the xbox pages. We really don't need these pathetic trolls in our news.
this game is gonna be bigger than GTA4 and GeOW2,it will sell millions and be left in our memorys forever just like solid snake did back on the PS2.it will be nothing short from the best game EVER!PLAY B3YOND!!
This interactive movie is shaping up quite well...
Good gravy I am just salavating here thinking about it!
I'm so excited about this game! The kind of excitement you're supposed to call a doctor about if it lasts more than 4 hours.
Everything ive seen makes this look epic. I hope its the amazing ending we all want to this historical franchise. I wonder what Kojima will do next?
I can feel the hate bubbling up because of this game. From ALL accounts so far the game is excellent and this will inevitably break many hearts on the 360 side. It's sad when the only mud left to sling now is speculation about movies and the color of the game. It's funny how reviews are cited as being gospel when referring to Metacritic and but when it comes to reviewers praising a PS3 game all of a sudden they don't know what they are talking about. Give it up haters (You know who you are), MGS4 is coming and their is nothing you can do about it. Might as well cancel that LIVE account and begin to save up for a PS3, it's the only way your going to play this game which marks the true beginning of the NEXT GENERATION.
All these people talking calling it a movie are probably planning on buying GTA4. You guys fill me with lulz.
regarding GOTY: i know a lot of people have played GTA and many have never finished the game. it's all hype and save for GTA 3, the rest is all fluff. i'm hoping the new one is one hell of the game. MGS4 look like it's going to be a benchmark until hopefully KZ2.
ah... june 12th. kojima drops an atomic bomb on the world. good way to die nonetheless...
It should be as long as its taking to get it made
my heart is gonna pop out of my chest if i read anymore without getting to play this....
You should mention that this is full of Act 1 spoilers. According to the OP in the gamingindians.com thread, it pretty much documents moment for moment through Act 1.
I just read a little of the article, spoilers are going to be coming in heavy with the game only a couple months away. But this game is going to rule the summer and it will be a candidate for GOTY, with every preview saying that this is the best yet and everyone always comes away after playing the game impressed more than then thought they would. I just can't wait till June 12 and for the MGO beta to kick off.
This game is gonna be the best game ever. Hell Yeahhhhhh! Between this and GTA4 I wont need my gamefly account the rest of the year. I'll be too busy for at least through the summer.
Game of the decade?! GOTC Game of the century?! ... Game of the Millenium? History, human existance... Well... just pick one. It'll be it.
or simply : BEG - Best Game Ever
I guess you got a little mixed up there... but I got ya. hehehehe
You here that xbox cunts? "It's the most cinematic, probably beautiful game in history". Now get lost you whores. I'll be playing the best game in history while you guys are playing Queers of Wars 2, praying that your sh!tbox wont die on you.
You fangirls crack me up just get both games gears and MSG4 it won't hurt you remember THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!
MGS4 = game of the year, it's that simple.
