A new near three-minute video that introduces Old Snake to the battlefield in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. In the video, Snake is warned by Otacon to avoid enemies and subsequently ends up in a firefight on the ground.
Graphics look great but shame about the video quality.
You can... u can play the whole game in First person is u want... but also from a Uncharted/Graw 2 over the shoulder angle and than ur typical adventure/stealth angles where u can see all around u.
you would get everything you want
you are talking about the 2nd biggest GAME of THIS ERA after FF13
kojima went all out on msg4 if they hit 60fps and 1080p that would jst complete the whole epic. ABility to switch between your mode of preference will be appreciated by the more casual mgs players but most die hard fans will maintain the default view. I hope the starter pack will have dwnloadable content via ps store to add more maps and weapons e.t.c. MGS4 is by far my most anticipated game followed by GT5 not so much GTA. GTA is a great game and probably has the largest replay value for any game i have ever played but for some reason it jst dosent get me as excited as mgs4 or GT5. I will definetly be getting GTA but i dnt see my self playing it as much as mgs4 or gt5 but i will probably be playing GTA4 longer though
In MGS3 you couldn't walk in FPS view. Same in fourth? I'll use guns just to try them, stealth all the way.
it was said at E3 last year that the entire game could be played in a fp view, and "that fans of fps games should do this"...straight from the man himself...
it is available, but it seems clumsy and much slower so far compared to the regular MGS views...but yeah the fixed TPS view sounds awesome too...there will probably be instances where 1 of the 3 views will be ideal for the situation, hopefully at least...
Looks incredible but awful player doesnt know what he is doing. Running into walls....
yeah theres nothing worse than seeing someone playing a game badly to put you off (not that im put off by mgs4).
cant wait for this game should be getting my 1080p tv around the same time this game comes out.
Wasn't the PS3 droids calling Gears of War, Greys of War and all for lack of color.. This game looks like one of the most washed out games ever made. I really hope there is more environments.
And I can tell by all the gameplay videos I've seen that the controls are not very good. Everyone seems to be struggling to do anything in the game.
EDIT: @5.1 "I haven't PS3 in my dreams" eh? You haven't spellcheck/grammer in your awake. Please, if you are going to try and burn someone please learn how to type the language properly first.
@5.2: I have seen Kojima play and yes the guy who actually developed the game can play it.. WOW, real impressive. Maybe he will buy all million copies of it since he seems to be the only one who can make sense of the convoluted controls.
Rental. And before you start calling me a 360 fanboy I have a PS3 360 and Wii
this level is in Middle east.. what do u expect?..needless to say
inyourmom u will see this game in your dreams.. but u cant play it .. because u havent PS3 in your dreams..
go back and look at the video where gameplay was first reveal...it was played by a kojima worker and you don't see him running like an idiot do ya?
I have no doubt what is being shown is very little of the first part of the game (which is normal for Kojima). I have seen two parts in videos which suggest the game will move out from the Middle East eventually.
- One of the Metal Gears comes out of Water (driven by Liquid Ocelot)
- Snake is air lifted out, as is Liquid eventually.
As for the worries yesterday this is turning into a shooter, I think Kojima has made a brilliant move by making this possible to be played in both modes. Stealth and FPS pending your preference.
Inyourmom has provided the N4G community and all Sony Snipers in particular with another uninformative, flamebaiting post. His intent is to solely amplify the tempers of each and every one of you Sony Snipers worldwide.
Please silence Inyourmom by reducing his bubble count and reporting this particular post as spam. With your help, you can make N4G a better community.
is been said countless times that the demo we been seeing is only the first 15 minutes of the game..where Snake goes to M.E to check if the rumor(Liquid Snake being there) is true...
which it is but then gets away when a chopper picks him up on way to who knows where....so I guess Snake fails to kill him in his first attempt and then all the action begin...
You would try and report this as SPAM and reduce my bubbles because you don't want to hear anyone else's opinion but YOUR's and your ficticious Dark Snipers.
At least I was actually commenting on the article/game instead of just trying a lame flame on someone.
Yes, you Sony droids love to use the Report and Bubble system to censor anyone who doesn't follow your viewpoints.
Stop lying to preserve your bubbles. I can't believe you think this game is washed out and only a 360 fanboy would say such things.
Nice try at preserving your bubbles but in the end you came out as pathetic fanboy trying to disguise your true intention.
Its better to just stat from ps3 articles and let ps3 fans comment and vica versa for 360 game related topics.
Inyour MOM YOU ARE CKING GAY AS H3LL. SHUT NUP OR ALL UR JEALOUS COMMENTS WILL BE REPORTED AS SPAM. You are a flaming Homo and your crppy defective system is not as good as the PS3. GET OVER IT Kiddie poo.
I'm tired of seeing your words. Ignored.
On second thought, Dark Sniper agrees with InYourMom and gives him credit for having the courage to speak the truth on N4G. His accurate description of the eagerly awaited MGS4 will no doubt change gamers' opinions and expectations of this alleged-AAA title. Hopefully Sony will take their time and develop it properly, and make sure that this game will indeed be a system seller, and not another disappointment like Lair, or many other games on the PLAYSTATION® 3 system.
Where is the stealth? Are they leaving that out or are the players in the videos that bad? Do they want to show action sequences or something? This is starting to make me wonder.
Its how the people are playing, you can play how ever you want, but these people probably never played an MGS game before so they just run out there like idiots and dont know what to do.
this guy playing dis is a noob wich it was me instead cany wait
No contest, no chance, no way for others against this just no way.
dude.. Uber-hype is a MS word..
u can see HALO3 on TV on hardware sites(anandtech.com for example)..
also I saw the same about Gears of war..
But never seen MGS4 or any other sony title on sites other than Gaming one..
so STFU and dont say Uber-hype .
METAL GEAR SOLID is one of the best single player games of all time,BEST STORY in the history of gaming . and the most complex one.
The gameplay looks as clumsy as every other MGS game in existence. The guy demoing the game was having some trouble.
dont forget surrond sound
who thought the guy demoing the game had *NO FREAKING IDEA how to play a Metal Gear game.
it's *NOT Gears of War
it's *NOT Uncharted
it's *NOT GRAW2
it's *NOT Rainbow Six Vegas
it's *METAL GEAR SOLID.
you just don't go barreling around (well, i guess you *COULD use that barrel item, but well, whatever), running into groups of enemies guns blazing. that's a quick way to get killed.
you have to be *STEALTHY when playing a Metal Gear Solid game. picking off specific targets that hinder your progress.
the cool thing about Metal Gear games, is that not *EVERYBODY has to die in order to accomplish your goals. it's completely possible to work your way through the map without getting into a firefight every few seconds.
people complain about the controls of a Metal Gear game, but that's kind of *PRECISELY the point; you *AREN'T SUPPOSED to get into firefights at all. it's the reason why, at the start of every Metal Gear Solid game, they constantly remind you that it's a *STEALTH MISSION, and to avoid fighting as much as possible.
Hideo Kojima said that he created the Metal Gear series to be the exact opposite of the shoot em ups of the day.
Konami never expected it to sell, and yet it did, and got a rabid following.
he bumped up the action quotent a bit in the original Solid game, but the gameplay tenant for all Metal Gear games since the original on the MSX was the same: stay out of sight, and avoid fighting.
in an odd twist on game design, the fighting is actually more of a "punishment" for getting spotted, as opposed to a "reward" like games like Uncharted, Gears, and GRAW do.
it's why ammunition tends to be limited in Metal Gear (unless of course you hold up an enemy and take his stuff).
i know, it's a strange design element, but that's *PRECISELY what makes Metal Gear Solid unique, and why people are so rabid about it. it's a challenge to be sneaky and stealthy. the "fighting as punishment" gameplay mechanic is a tricky one to pull off, which is why a lot of other stealth action games fail to live up to Metal Gear, because it's a tricky balance. a lot of games just arbitrarily throw in stealth segments, where Metal Gear is *DESIGNED around stealth gameplay. everything from the map, to the gameplay mechanics, are designed around stealth. most games just imitate the surface look; ie, secret agent/spy, hiding from enemies, sneaking. but Metal Gear is *MORE than just those few ingredients. without solid game design in all areas, the stealth gameplay element will fall apart.
(for the record, the other stealth games i'm referring to are *NOT the Splinter Cell series. that's a different type of stealth game also, and well done for the most part)
the guy demoing this game clearly hasn't played an MGS before, or else he wouldn't have tried to play it like an action game. MGS is an action game in a loose sense of the word.
of course, playing stealthy isn't very exciting to look at for spectators, but that's the way you're *SUPPOSED to play Metal Gear Solid.
to go throughout the entire game, all levels using cqc and weapons if u only, and i mean only, have too........thats MGS.....
i got my ps3(when it first came out) for this game....
so im ready!
I cannot wait for this game either.
And I am very interested in Raiden's side of the story.
