"Things To Add In MGS4"...
...An Xbox 360 logo.

Only then, will it be Game of the Year.

At its present state, it only reaches Boring-est Game of the Year.

Yer, well with the biased reviews!

I kid I kid....

Anyway, I certainly think MGS4 could have done with less, if anything.

Hey Bfast.....Sarcasm or not
if that's the case, you can just turn your 360 on and stare at it all day... because if that's all it takes to make it game of the yr........ and at it's current status it's boring to you then do the math why bother bringing it over.......

Hold it Snake.
Time to change disk. I know, I know...its a pain. But you need to swap disc 1 for disc 2. Do you see a disc labeled 2?


Huh? Oh wait. We're on the PS3 system! Its a Bluray disc. Dual layered too, no need to swap. What an age we live in huh Snake? Wonder what they'll think up next!

The deleted scenes would probably still need to be on Blu-ray...

200gb blu-ray disc ya dummy! what else?
Mystery_Person  +   2616d ago
haha wow breakfast. You got so many disagrees and only 1 agree. I really liked the snake vs. liquid idea for MGO. It would be really cool to fight your friends one on one.

this article is more fantasies of a gamer than real advices to improve MGS4.
lsujester  +   2616d ago
True, but I would like the cutscene viewer for sure. It was cool to have on Subsistence, so if there is a MGS4 "redux", I hope it's there again.
MrRaveDave  +   2616d ago
Isnt that the point?
isnt the whole point of gaming fulfilling your fantasies??? a cutscene viewer would rock, and a boss time attack.

thats the beauty of this gen, DLC.
Nitrowolf2  +   2616d ago
yes those would rock
I would like them to add a new mission to the game where you play as raiden an recue sunny. That would be sweet
thor  +   2616d ago
I think the only reason they were left out is because of those pain in the @rse installs; you'd have to install before watching each cutscene, or fighting each boss.
Silogon  +   2616d ago
I bought this game when it came out, but I should have waited for the sub version like I did with MGS3. I know it will be the real version of the game and will probably include a lot of these features.
PirateThom  +   2616d ago
Why there won't be one:

Previously, there was no way to offer DLC. Now there is. Why go to the trouble of releasing a disc (money, printing costs, advertising, shipping etc), when you can release some DLC and just make profit on each sale?
Nitrowolf2  +   2616d ago
but if they do come out with one i will buy it.
PirateThom  +   2616d ago
Oh yeah, me too, definitely a day 1 buy, I mean, it would be weird not too...:

Most of the things mentioned in this article I just find ridiculous. And I believe the majority of them would just turn MGS into something it was never meant to be. Play Tekken if you want a fighting game. Play some other mech game if you want battles like that. I just think it would be ridiculous to take those two things online. They make were fairly well in the single-player game... but neither are polished enough to come to the multi-player arena. And I guess this writer hasn't heard that you can push select to see the controls for the final fight.

The cutscene viewer SHOULD have been in there... but they likely didn't have the space and were hampered by those installs.

There's more I could say about this but I just don't feel like it. I'm not trying to bash the article... but quite a few of the suggestions sound altogether silly to me. They'd be nice if they could work. But I see very few of them being able to at any quality level.

This guy's number #3 is not valid (from what I understand at least), you can CQC Liquid and choke him.
Nitrowolf2  +   2616d ago
@4.1 you can do that
and you can also headbutt liquid
Skerj  +   2616d ago
Also if you hit select #3 is moot.
GiantHstx  +   2616d ago
Add some gameplay and take out 50% ofthe cutscenes!
PirateThom  +   2616d ago
It has lots of gameplay, more than Halo 3 or Gears of War managed, even with the cutscenes.

Note how it's a challenge to run through the game in 5 hours to get the highest award.

Agreed Pirate
In the single player campaign I agree that MGS4 has a lot of gameplay but more importantly more ways to play... And MGS4's campaign easily has the most replay value due to the sheer amounts of unlockables... This game is packed with things to do... Even searching easter eggs is a good enough reason to replay the game

As for multi player GeOW and Halo 3 are saved in the gameplay department... Both are impressive online and will keep me coming back for more... But then again so will MGO...

Anyone who thinks MGS4 has little gameplay is wrong... very wrong...

Ninja battles would kick ass.
theusedfake  +   2616d ago
i might be a little late on this one
or it's probably been asked/answered
(if so, my bad)
but what happened to playing your
own music on snake's iPod?
MikeGdaGod  +   2616d ago
i listened to one of the in-game pod cast and they mentioned being able to listen to your own music using the ipod so i guess it'll come with the trophy/2.4 update
Wolf873  +   2616d ago
Some nice ideas there...
though MGS-4 will complete for me if they add the Theatre mode, something like MGS-3 where we could watch the whole game being played by the computer along with cutscenes, it really gave the impression that the whole thing was a CGI movie.
GametimeUK  +   2616d ago
call me oldskool
They will probably bring out MGS4 again (like mgs2 and 3) and add some sweet new feature...
MrRaveDave  +   2616d ago
MGS4 : Substantially
Substantially more features??? pheraps or maybe just a second disc with these extras???

More likely than not....give it 8 months max
GametimeUK  +   2616d ago
since they put an oldskool MG game on Subsistance... Im thinking MGS1 on a bonus disc would be perfect... Also some VR missions and Raiden as a playable character through his own set of missions... Maybe add the Boss Survival mode with online leaderboards
grantps3  +   2616d ago
i hope new guns, new attachments like better scopes, cammo,
Angelitos  +   2616d ago
Poor Xbots
Poor Xbots

Poor Xbots, this guy failed, Raiden was already confirmed in MGO. Poor Xbots, this game is the only game that has this special sneaking syle game. Poor Xbots, they are waiting for Splinter on my D!ck to be released and get dissapointed.

Poor Xbots
MpV35  +   2616d ago
Running with that idea...
... of MGS1 on a second disk, why not remake it as well with the PS3 graphics. I mean, they pretty much already remade the entire game with new graphics, what more would it take to do the character models and change it to not look ran down. Would be great...
MrRaveDave  +   2616d ago
It wont happen
i doubt that would happen though if MGS1 is coming to PSN or XBLA....

@ Silogon
Dude, I highly doubt they'll release a "Subsistence" version of MGS4... seeing as how you can easily update it online. Thus will cause more players to purchase MGS4. It'll be too expensive to re-create the game with extra, and release it on Blu-Ray.

It'll be waaaaaayy cheaper for them, and you if they release it as a download for like 5$.

I'll glady purchase this no prob.
Silogon  +   2616d ago
I agree and wasn't wholeheartedly thinking in these terms. It does make sense to do it online, but as for Dollars and "cents" probably not. I still see Konami releasing a definitive disc based version of MGS4, maybe even along side DL content, just like Oblivion and the GOTY edition thing.

Just my take on it.
