The Metal Gear Survive previews and the public beta are live, and the general consensus seems to be that's it quite good fun. Especially if you're into survival games.
No, Meta Gear fans period. You expect a certain quality of plot, characters, gameplay and evolution for the almighty MG with each installment, not a back pedal and whoring of a highly regarded series. Zombie survival? really? This better flop hard.
I agree, it seems like some lame DLC content thrown together quickly to make a quick buck.
Yeah this should have been an expansion to Phantom Pain not a full retail game.
Even the Yakuza series had a weird zombie shooter.... Get over it and hope this sells well so we can get another canonical metal gear game.
I was disappointed with metal gear solid 5 the phantom pain and this game looks like crap.
I'll give you characters and gameplay, but plot? Really? MGS has some of the most ridiculous writing in gaming history.
That is what it makes MGS so great
yea because mgsv was such a masterpiece O.o <---- blatant sarcasm btw ... 150 boring side ops of all teh same thing 150 times, followed with stupid filler missions that are all basically side ops ... literally could have played 5 missions from the actual story up until sahelanthropus and gotten a better experience tbh ... and the convoluted bullshit of later story missions that somehow sees you replaying some missions over again while trying to be taken seriously and make sense :/ and then the micro managing and capturing of 1919238383475859 people to get things and develop them ... such a boring grind IMO but that i feel is more subjective to me finding it a boring gameplay element personally than it being done badly :/
Like Metal Gear Acid? Portable Ops Plus? Game looks shit for sure but the series has always had odd spin offs. They were better off making a new ip like a mp battle royal with stealth or remake an old game in the new engine. This does look like a slap to fans after the last slap to fans. Shouldve ended it with 4.
Metal Gear is Kojima. So Konami can go to hell lol.
"You expect a certain quality of plot, characters, gameplay and evolution" So explain Ac!d & Rising.
Spin offs. Ba dum Tssss.
"Spin offs" So is Survive. Ba dum tssss.
I’m not a Kojima fan, I’m a Metal Gear fan. I preordered this game because I wanted to continue the series, but because of the “Required” always online, even for single player content, I chose to cancel My preorder. This isn’t the first game I was interested in that put this requirement on its single player content. I can understand multiplayer only games and MMO’s, but single player content is about control. I want to be able to play my games 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 years from now, not until they decide I can’t anymore. No thanks, I’ll pass.
I get what you're saying but there is a very small chance you're gonna play games from today in 25 years. I have my NES, and Sega Genesis in boxes because I couldn't part ways with them. Well let's just say they haven't been touched. Either way I don't think the single player portion is going to be memorable or long and full of story for that matter so if you want a zombie Co op go ahead and have fun now and worry about the future later.
Except that the move to multiplayer online games will make the old single player games quite desirable far into the future. I still play the oldest Dragon Quest and FF games and will someday pull out my PS2 for Suikiden and Shadow Hearts replays.
@taco because you play less than a hand full of old games every once in a while doesn't mean someone should base their entire purchasing decision on said logic. This game probably isn't going to be a classic but might be fun Co op game that you'd play in February but never think about playing again twenty years down the line
I play Super Nintendo and N64/PS1 games all the time, and replay my favorite RPGs every few years or so.
Don't let the Kojima sheep see that. Those morons believe he actually gives a shit about them
Gameplay looks like ass anyway
Then you must of hated MGSV cause gameplay is the same but more better.
Well it won’t have a great narrative, which is this series’ Greatest strength Not to mention it’s always online
Yes, who can forget such memorable lines such as "Do you believe love can bloom on the battlefield?"
I was on a give it a shot until always online and microtransactions!
Kojima fans are shills anyways.
I don't think you know what a shill is.
i know exactly what shills are and that's what a lot of kojima fans are.
So you believe that "Kojima fans" are being paid to show interest in, and promote something that they might not even care about?
What an understatement. I'd be surprised if this steaming turd was enough for anyone, much less Kojima/Metal Gear fans.
So tell me, how is this a Metal Gear game beside using the same engine as MGS5?
People with the mindset of "it's mine, it should be this way, or I'm going to stomp my feet", really make it hard for a franchise to try and be different. The game is fun, even though it's not a true metal gear.
Always online for a SP experience? Check Microtransactions? Check No snake? Check No Kojima? Check So yes this will never be in a million years be enough for Fans. You dont know Konami? They even made snake eater a pachinko slot machine!! remaking the graphics in current gen but its a slot machine!! Konami doesnt care they are out of touch, Just put Metal gear and zombies together and fingers crossed people will buy it. Like this author.
Always online added to the fact there is no Kojima , bleh
I played the beta and there's so much complex layers of grinding placed on everything that I was immediately turned off because I could see this was nothing more then some boring grind that turns into a chore shortly after starting.
Kojima fans or not, it's just a crap game.
It's not Metal Gear. Period.
It's nothing to do with Metal Gear it's just an expensive PC mod legally carrying a well known name. After what I heard about Konami, I will never buy from them no matter how good the game is.
Wow another site to blacklist/ignore thank you for showing me how shallow you are.
Kojima is god.
Why do some dev dont get the word "OPTIONS" where you can connect online or offlind anytime you want. Of course this is necessary for MMO and Multiplayer but even Single player content always online is Bullcrap. You dont make things better by getting rid of options. Options which gives you the power to choose what you want. OPTIONS learn it.
I think this sentiment is generalizing quite a bit. I am sure there are a number of MG fans who like this game.
Well i'm a big Metal Gear fan and after trying the beta i have decided it's a day one buy from me. I loved the gameplay and that is one of the most important thing's for me a game should have and, the story is looking decent as well. Don't get me wrong I'm not a fan of the always online crap and the microtran's, but like any game with micro trans ill just do what i always have done and not buy any. People are just going to have to accept there will be people that enjoy this and are going to buy it. If you don't like it don't buy it it's as simple as that your loss. But let others decide for them self's what they want to spend their own money on.
I cant stand the animation. The controls are clunky. In general it just feels like it has no soul to it.
I was perfectly happy with it until they made it online only internet required. I will never play a game that does this.
