An EGMR journalist talks about the return of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and how despite Ground Zeroes' length, it may just prove to be great.
It is still a very expensive tech demo.
Your FACE is a very expensive tech-demo!
I know right! This "demo" is my game of the year. People pay $60 for a 8-10 hour crapfest and trade it in for 10. $30 for a night of MGS is a dream compared to going to the movies and dropping $40 for 2 hours, 2 tickets, popcorn and 2 sodas. If you like spend 15 on Peace Walker HD, you'll be pleasantly surprised as to why this game will be worth it
Well said. And I second THamm's comment.
its gonna be epic. and THamm, well said, and btw PW:HD is free if you preorder it on PS3 ;). idk if new egg still has that $5 discount or not for the ps4 version. PW could have been MGS5, it was so good. im getting the ps3 version, i honestly cant wait for this!
Oh snap! :3
I can't bring myself to pay this much for a slice of a full game, DLC upfront, whatever you want to call it.
I'm right there with you. For a $15-$20 download I'd probably bite, but it's a no-go at $30.
Ask yourself, how many people bought Zone Of The Enders for just the MGS2 demo? There's supposed to be hours of content in Ground Zeroes. Apparently, CVG played the game for 8 hours and had only completed 30% of everything the game had to offer. I can't wait.
I was one of them. And if they went the same route this time and had Ground Zeros packaged with ZoE3 (or even the HD Collection of the previous two games), I would have bought it in a heartbeat.
It has always been about quality over quantity for me. Journey is a short game, but it's one of my favorite games last gen. I can see why some people would shy away from buying Ground Zeroes, but as a MGS fan it's a no brainer for me. Day one.
yes but journey is only $14.99 not $29.99 or $39.99 like MGS:GZ was suppose to be.
So? This a Kojima game. It will be worth $30.00.
Bad example. Like Kane22 pointed out, Journey was a $15 game. It absolutely was worth that despite it's length (or lack thereof). Ground Zeroes is asking for twice that.
apparently people are willing to buy anything as long as it is from their favorite dev or publisher. other than that they would be bitching like hell at that price and the length.
I'll get it used, no biggie.
So what happns aftr u finish ground zero can u still free roam around like gta 5 aftr completing it? If yes its a buy from me: )
Nope, no free roam or day or night cycles.
its not open world, its one big level that you can explore and is said to have 10 hours of content and things to do besides the story.
Some of the greatest games created can be beaten in a couple of hours once you get past a learning curve and know what to do; that doesn't mean that the content itself is bad.
I agree still on the fence on if i am going to get it or not because i heard that people could actually get through the game in 15 mins ... i mean i know its open world so you do not have to go straight for the obj like the past MG games but idk $30 is pushing it ...
I'm to much of an MGS fan to miss out. Smh
30$ is way to much for this demo. Those of you who buy into this bs are no better than the people who was willing to support DMR on a console. It's little steps like this is how it starts, Next thing you know more devs will start dicing up their games to rob us. I will not support the first steps in the walk to destroy gaming...
Anyone berating this as a 'demo' clearly isn't much of Metal Gear fan. I doubt half of these same people that are still outraged by it would have bought the game in the first place.
I really don't know how you came to that conclusion but its ridiculous. I will buy the full retail version when its available however, I will not support these practices. This is a over priced demo no matter how u slice it. I've played and beat every metal game released on consoles so don't pull that "oh he doesn't like it so he's not a fan" crap on me
remember these are the same people who would complain if this wasn't MGS:GZ or their favorite game.
I've been more mad about the rhetoric since it clearly isn't a demo. I was just pulling that 'doesn't like it so he's not a fan' crap since I was a bit too angry about the whole affair.
its a demo ! its a motherfucking demo ! i beat it 45 mins theres nothing to do but bullshit
