Metal Gear Online has been patched and now includes a new team sneaking mode and adds more host options.
MGO is actually pretty good. I've been having alot of fun with it, great graphics, the mechanics work pretty well. Nice to see Konami adding game types, only thing that sucks is that whole Konami ID mess, so there would probably be more players if it weren't for that.
Fully agree - why on earth is it not over PSN? The only advantage I can see for doing it through another system would be to enable cross-platform play (lol) which of course can't happen... The reason they _have_ done it this way is ONLY so they can charge for more characters (otherwise you'd just open up another PSN account and get it that way). All I hope is that they keep the new game modes/maps FREE and let the DLC be the new characters - often with expansions no one plays them after a few months...
While I agree the game is fun, but the konami id thing really isn't the games biggest problem IMO. The lag switching and just plain cheating is insane. I was put in a CQC hold by a guy on the ground while I was about 4 floors up in a building. People jump all over the map, countless times I've been shooting at someone and then in the blink of an eye get sniped by the same guy from the other side of the map. They really need to fix crap like this instead of adding new modes to a game that only 3 weeks old.
They are really keepin stuff coming to the game!!! nice work guys its a good game
it was out like 3 days ago
Yeah I know this happened long ago.
...I could not get into MGO I'm glad to see it has a healthy following and is getting support from Konami.
I swear this was already updated like 5 days ago...
This patch wouldn't also happen to fix the horrible lag I experience in matches over six players, would it? I didn't think so. I work fine on Call of Duty 4, Resistance, and Warhawk, but MGO and Lost Planet I lag like crazy. It has to be a P2P VS. dedicated servers thing, I guess. No one knows of any solutions to this, do they? Besides getting cable-speed (which is out of the question)?
Still not trophies, there ment to be in there soon.
For the laggers; Within the server list you can press START and choose an option to only display servers having a good connection to you. That solves a lot of issues. Further, within an online game, to the left side of a players name there is a box displaying a color from dark gray to full white. A dark gray indicates a bad connection (ping) to the server. You can issue a kick for the player in question.
That isn't a connection listing that's a server host rating of Good, however I didn't know about that bar to the left of their name being the ping rating. I just found myself complaining that they needed a latency something or other somewhere, thanks for the info!
@xhairs9 "That isn't a connection listing that's a server host rating of Good, ..." You've got me wrong here. Ok, I will explain it a bit more clearly. Within MGO you have an option to 'Join Game'. After you select 'Join Game' there is a list of servers currently hosting a game. Pressing the START button now allows for the possibilities to apply certain filters to the server list. One of these filters is a 'Network Quality' filter. "... however I didn't know about that bar to the left of their name being the ping rating. ... " Selecting a server from the list will show up the current status of this server on a bar below that list. To the left within this bar there is also a color-coded box indicating the network quality for the selected server. "I just found myself complaining that they needed a latency something or other somewhere, thanks for the info!" No problem! /mgovoice
