Become an expert at multitasking, courtesy of Solid Snake and Metal Gear Solid's excessively long cutscenes.
Whaaa? I'm getting sick of these, if your not interested in watching them, say it's your second play through or what ever, SKIP them. SKIP SKIP SKIP... easy no?
Have you been banned to the Open zone or something? Still this is blantely a jibe for the hate mail. Why on earth would someone skip the cut scenes.
Yeah your probably right, for me, the cut scenes are almost as good as the gameplay. But that's exactly what I hoped/expected, I wanted something different from MGS, something more personal than your normal game, and by god they delivered (imo). ...and yeah, banned till Thursday and bubbles removed :( Still guess I deserved it, moment of weakness. ps... I'm as big a movie buff as gamer, perhaps that helps.
Stay where you are Fish. Nobody wants you in the gamer zone.
Got a funny feeling we'll be switching places very soon. But thanks for sticking your opinion in where it was neither wanted or needed. and you've been a member since? nice to see you casting your aspersion's so soon.
I agree, fishy stay here your one of the few members i like =)
this was the hilarious and the sony sheep are too stupid to stop going to his site every time he says something bad about a ps3 game you're probably going to see a lot more of this since all you Sony nerds are practically putting cash straight into his pocket
Chris Buffa is easily the internet's biggest f[email protected] currently... ^^thesadtruth...and all the 360 nerds are sitting around doing absolutely nothing...confused as to why their console never came close to creating real-time cutscenes that looked as good... complain that they are long all you want...as any half-witted and above individual would tell you...you can skip all or part of each cutscene...the only reason that idiot made this was because the entire internet, except for you few pathetic 360 idiots that still won't wake up, called him out...when anonymous internet posters call you out, and actually make perfect sense as to why your review was 100% flawed...you tend to lash out in a childish manner...this is a perfect example...
Will someone send the author a Tissue,along with a copy of Pretty Woman?
Its that man Chris Buffa again
DO NOT VISIT THE LINK. DO NOT GIVE THIS BUFFOON THE WEB HITS. The clown is only doing it because of the controversy. In his ignorance he fails to realize that his bashing fad is grown old and will fade and then he will never be taken seriously as a writer again...ever.
Here's a great way to pass the time: Go to Gamestop/EBgames and trade in your PS3 and PS3 games including the MGS4 that bores you so, because you definitely don't deserve to enjoy the Masterpiece which is MGS4.
Does Bloodmask spend every minute of his days looking for game news to report on N4G?
Have you read bloodmask's bio? "I have a great disdain towards Sony fanboys. I do not understand their bizarre emotional attachment to their console." Umm...its the same reason you have an attachment with the 360 bloodmask. he does spend most of his time here. his 360 must've RROD. Also what about 360 fanboys bloodmask? do you not hate them?
Well IT IS coming from the same site that said the Xbox 360 is the "Greatest Console of ALL time in the history of video games" yeah...
Light Yagami, he loved them, just like he and Zhuk(a diehard xbox 360 troll) used to work together. Should watch them pat themselves in the forum last time.
He does seem to be a hypocrite. I hope that when he is at a time where he can reflect upon his life, he'll see how fruitless his bias was and how big of a hypocrite he was. I've come to accept the existence of fanboys anyway. But I'm just curious where he finds the time to devote to N4G. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for some of his contributions, but surely, there must be something else he can do?
Hey I got a good idea. How about you watch them.
Apparently this guy Chris has the attention span of a potato.Why does this fruit continue to bash this game? Did his 360 rrod? Did his girlfriend leave him because his "snake" wasn't solid enough?(corny) heck I wouldn't been surprised if he was going through menopause with the ways he's been acting.
Bloodmask is very hypocritical. He claims Sony owners have an emotional attachment to their console and yet he defends the 360 to the death.
Dude just go play a game that doesn't have any cut scenes, its really that simple. Stop trashing an amazing game, if you have a problem with it don't play. there, problem solved.
If he couldn't find out, by hem self, that he's only need to press the X button, then MGS 4 story and cut-scenes, are too much for hes brain. we don't want hem to have brain damage. so he better stay with cusual games.
LOL! That's great :-)
Why would he do that when he can reiterate his hatred of all things phenomenal? It's too logical and easy to simply skip the scenes. I'm not the kind to blacklist sites, because everyone is capable of pulling a gem out of their ass once in awhile, but the fact that this guy is allowed to run his mouth over there just tells me that it's little more than amateur hour at GameDaily. Not sure how they came to be taken seriously in the first place. Seems like Bloodmask is the only user posting their articles here.
And cried for 36 consecutive hours. Seriously - should anyone who didn't think to press the 'Start' button during any videogame cutscene (let alone MGS4) be allowed to write and publish GAME reviews? Think about it.
Any of these bullcrap sites that try an flame MGS4, dont even bother giving them hits, if u want to say something about these lame sites trying to complain about mgs4, lets leave it in here, that way they can come here and witness how stupid they are for wasting there time trying to get traffic in there site, lol. :)
Chris Buffa is a hero. Standing his ground against a horde of Sony fanatics, desperate to quash free-will and promote mindless conformity. At the end of the day and every other day for all time. Metal Gear Solid is not perfect. In fact, it's a bit pish to be honest.
to people who love the C0CK
you have the ability to defend a completely baseless and stupid article? Why don't you go on your other acccount, the one that is probably banned from gamer zone

Which review should we believe the 7 game sites who seem to be reviewing a different game than MGS4 and lowering the score, or the other 52 who seem to agree that MGS4 is a well AAA and AAAA title indeed? Thank u very much now go with chris buffa and try an defend your case somewhere else because the rest of the gaming industry knows MGS4 is an amazing game. :)
Chris Buffa is a troll needing hits to the site. He has a beef with people the criticize his criticism, so now he is in "flame mode". MGS4 is, in fact, perfection.
"There is a ghost driver on the high way!", Buffa: "What one ? Hundrets!". That's all that comes to my mind here. He must be right, no ?
And we know what you are.....Why have you got an mgs4 picture if you think its pish......you are a 360 fanboy trying to spread BS only it show how desparate you are to steep so low. Well MGS4 its the best game ever. So crawl back under the rock where you came from you sad sad low life......You are not a gamer and using metal gear solid as your n4g tag proves it......And shows your true motives....loser
I am honestly scared of N4G these days. I have little desire to post here until the fanboyism calms down. The fact the first reply to this post is so blatantly immature, unfunny, and insulting, yet has twice as many agrees as disgrees, says more than I ever could. I am sure MGS4 is an amazing game. But really, folks, when you attack anyone who dare criticize any aspect of the game just because they don't share your opinion - that's when you cross the line into a complete fanboy. There's nothing wrong with loving a game in spite of, and sometimes even because of, its quirkly faults. It is a perfectly legitimate criticism of MGS4 to say "the cutscenes are too long for me." That doesn't make them an evil 360 loving PS3 hating fanboy of doom. It just means they expect different things from their games than you do, that's all. That being said, this article itself is an unfunny waste of space on the internet - like most Gamedaily/Gamesradar articles typically are.
thank god you added that last bit, I was a little worried for a sec. Its our right to sh*t on peoples opinion just like its their right to sh*t on peoples life work. Its all in jest I suppose but cutscenes can be skipped if you don't want to watch them. Should you feel to write an article about how to 'multitask' during important aspect of MGS then you might as well play another game or like i said just skip. The article is silly, yes so why cant we be silly back as long as we dont go too far then kool. When i first visited this site it was the opposite of what it is now. Where did terms like 'AAA' 'attach rate' etc come from? wasnt it the same people who are now in decline now? Were these not the terms used against the 'sony(insert word)' no games, no rumble, high price, blu ray etc. Wave after wave, month after month. The backlash is to be expected. Sad but true and every single member of N4G should be aware of N4G history. The ps3 was sh*tted on and the ps3's fans have found their voices and are giving a big F U back to the haters and naysayers. The 360 fans should and have done the same in the past and will in the future should the 360 get its second wind and thats what a WAR is about.
... .... ... Lmfao. A hero? He's a hero for acting unprofessional in his review of this game? Are you seriously kidding me? If this game was on the 360, he would have gave this a 20. The man is clearly biased. And Silellak, while I do agree with some of your comments, I don't agree with the whole cutscene thing. You can skip the cutscenes if they're too long for you. How hard is it to just hit an x button and move on to the action? The cutscenes are there to explain the story to those who have never touched an MGS game and doesn't know what's going on that led up to this game being set in the near future.
You could watch them like a real gamer would...
MGS4 has some of the best cutscenes in a video game. The only people who won't like the cutscenes are 360 fanboys with short attention span.
people think this Chris Buffa is retarded.....you can skip the cutscenes you stupid [email protected]!!!!....he actually spends time writing an article that is pointless and a waste of time.........yeah Chris Buffa...I think you just proved right everyone that sent you hate mail....
I've got a list of things Chris Buffa can do while he watches them 1. Stick his d1ck in his 360's disc drive. 2. Loosen his a$$ by shoving a 360 controller up it (shouldn't be difficult for him). 3. Think of more ways to continue the GameDaily campaign against MGS. 4. Find some more d1cks to suck. 5. Kill himself. Personally I think number 5 looks like his best option.
Oh wow... The fanboyism in that first reason... wow. What type of fan would get that obsessed over a game? Oh that's right, a loon.
Who is this guy and what's his problem?
Did you even read it? Say's right there first page... criticism of his review and hate mail. @below lol, u got me there. And your right it's not professional, but hardly any site is these days. If gaming sites didn't appeal in some way to fanboys... who would then visit their site to begin with?
So, he then flames the people who complained? That's professional...
And you got me there. Touché. You're right, they know that if they have articles like this, it gets more hits than say "METAL GEAR SOLID 4 IS THE BEST GAME EVER!"
WATCH them... just a thought
Yeah this site lost all credibility.
C-O-M-E-D-Y It's not like this is the first Metal Gear game to have lengthy cutscenes. I don't know about you, but I like to know what is going on, story wise, in the games I play. Call me old fashioned. If Kojima has crafted a more sophisticated game and story than you would like, go play Splinter Cell:I wish I were MGS or Halo.
Exactly! The rest of the MGS games has long cutscenes. It's not like this was the first game to have them. That's grasping at freakin' straws!
more tripe courtesy of bloodmask
seriously dude, that guy trying to put MGS4 down. Too much he failed hard as MGS4 got good reviews and sales are good.
LMAO Bloodmask is a loser. Yea its only been decalrd one of the great games of all time by Ign GAMEPRO, Gameinformer, Gamespot and everyone else. MGS4 destroys EVERYTHING. 'Nuff said.
did you get the mgs1 face camo? or the mk.23 original pistol from mgs1? act4: shadow mosses for the win! brings back madd memories.
Guy's getting the last laugh for the criticism he got for his review, probably because it's ridiculous in the first place. But gamedaily is always like this. They'll probably do something clever and jump back and forth like they always do. Who knows, next week could be the "Things to do for 6 weeks while waiting for your 360 to come back".
...way to miss the point ENTIRELY!! Keep digging that hole, sir. You keep on failing to see the real issue about this crap, as it's evident every time you defend these articles.
Its quite extraordinary to moan about cut scenes when you have an option to skip them. Its amusing to me that many of these same people were frothing with praise about how absolutely amazing Lost Odyssey was. I played just 10 minutes in about the first 2 hours of that game.... I enjoyed that too, but theres plenty of hypocrasy about! Personally, I like a good story, and to skip it in MGS4 would be to seriously miss out on some fine creative work. But it IS an option.
Umm no it isn't. It is a criticism of the game, just like Gears lacking a plot and gta4 and it's repetitive missions. Those cut-scenes are meant to be a part of the games experience, so yes it can be over-done and that makes it a criticism, not something "extraordinary" because of an opinion.
Uh TitnTin is right, if you couldn't skip them THEN we'd have a problem. But the fact is as soon as a cutscene comes up you CAN skip, then guess what? Skip it. If you choose to watch a lengthy cutscene even though you don't like to and refuse to skip it yet complain, you're a f*cktard plain and simple. Afraid of missing the story? Too bad, you're playing MGS not some cookie cutter UE3 shooter from Joe Developer. People are really getting retarded this generation, common sense is seemingly going out the damn window and it's quite sad. I don't recall anyone complaining about GTA4's 9 hours of cutscenes. You could use the open world argument but it's not going to work. There's a double standard here and there's no doubt in my mind that if this were multiplat or a 360 game then there'd be no complainers whatsoever over these "issues". Buffa's doing this to be an ass and to piss everyone off because he knows it's working. He makes Aaron Thomas look quite good in comparison, at least he shut up and didn't go further.
Sucks about that Fishy..I think Im free tomorrow. But as per the installations or the cutscenes, here's what I do. During installation, I sit back and wonder and digest all I witnessed during the Act end sequence, trying to see if it fit into the MGS universe and if it tied in with past iterations. Yes. Yes it does. During the cut scenes, I do what anyone who picked up MGS in the first place does. Watch intently, waiting for that oh so secretive piece of information that turns your whole world upside down (Act 3, when you meet Big Mama..WOW.) and wonder why other games can;t tell a good story. No complaints from me or any other fan, whether they be die hards, or picked up on bfore and enjoyed it. Nice flame article though Bloodmask. Really, you know how to pick em.
skip the damn cut scene.
skip the "best" part of the "game"? might as well not even buy the game.
pfff...no wonder the story was too complicated for them... Gamespot, your free to go, your next GameDaily.
Wow. That was the most sorriest excuse for a Video Game Article I've ever read in my life. Anyone that is playing Metal Gear Solid 4 is playing the game for the story as well as the gameplay and NOBODY will be skipping the epic cutscenes in MGS4. Why in the HELL would you spend $59.99+ on a game and skip through the cutscenes or just not watch them at all? I honestly don't see how anyone couldn't watch the cutscenes in MGS4, because once they start rolling, you are instantly engaged in what's going on and the next thing you know, 30 minutes have passed by and didn't even realize it.
"Why in the HELL would you spend $59.99+ on a game and skip through the cutscenes or just not watch them at all?" Maybe, he bought it not knowing that? I mean Konami did discourage reviewers and any previewers to not talk about cut-scene length.
the author intentionally make mgs4 cut scenes sound like an awful thing. The cutscenes are a huge plus for the storyline. I don't see alot of people hate cutscenes unless it's a really bad one . No matter how he try to spin cutscenes to a bad thing, others don't fall for that low blow. Simply because cutscenes are like movies, as long as the movies/cutscenes are well told. People will love it. Look like some ppl just afraid of MGS4 success and want to put it down as much as possible. First the gimp launch of MGS4, then install time, then cutscenes, seriously that person is definitely trying hard to put down MGS4. Unfortunately, the MSG4 and PS3 sales just proof him wrong. Failed attempt.
god....what a pathetic little fanboy.
umm, you could WATCH THEM!! An excellent way to pass the time :D
