This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Is anyone else able to watch the actual video? All I'm getting is that same bloody 45 second Escapist add on all the videos. Do I need to register for the site to watch these videos now?
Its working fine for me.
Its like that for me even on the Edge browser that has no extensions whatsoever on it.
I'm using firefox, and chrome and haven't had any issues
Even Safari on my Mac gives the same result. Guess I'm just not supposed to watch these videos anymore...
I contacted the Escapist and they fixed it. All good now.
This guy is hilarious
He has my favorite videos on gaming. I watch them all. They aren't always the best pure reviews, but that's not their point. They are entertainment based on entertainment. Meta!!! Are you not entertained?
I am quite entertained
Recently, I have been finding games journalists more and more desperate to get blood from a stone. MGS5 is pretty much perfect. the stuff that annoys people is stupid. " I dont like organizing stuff!". " The story is not complex enough." "too many options..." What the hell is wrong with people. go play mobile games. Or watch a movie.
Only problems I've had, have been with servers (can't defend my FOB if I can't connect to sh!t... and the menu loading time increase) and the auto sort all staff doesn't see to be completely right (at times I'll have b ranks in 1 group when I have A or A+ in the waiting room, and I hit sort all and nothing changes). Besides that, it's fun overall (who doesn't like throwing little kids around?). Getting around isn't too hard, as you have your horse, jeep, or delivery box.
There isn't a mechanic in this game that I've disliked. I am a bit annoyed by the unreliable connection to online though.
Are you for real? Its a great stealth game maybe but the worst MGS ever made.
I'm just gonna throw this out there, he doesn't get how the Fulton recovery system in game works. The game pretty much does it the way it works in real life, probably with a couple things simplified to make it funnier, but a plane reels in the target by using the balloon, that's why you hear the sound of a jet when someone is fultoned.
Let me clear this up: while it would indeed be more convenient to be able chopper-hop around to the different side op locations ala Mother Base platforms, it would remove a huge swath of usage cases for a bunch of mechanics. Namely, the fast-travel from delivery platforms mix-and-matched with creative use of the various transportation methods and their variations (such as air-dropping your horse in on the fly.) It encourages you to look at the map and plan your course to pick up interstitial side ops, resources and whatever else. The idea is, you're dropped into a warzone and tough it out for a while. That's why you get stinky and flies follow you around, which can be your reminder to return to Mother Base at long last.
All transport systems are slow as shit, you spend most of your time travelling, not getting into the game as much as you could. Let us fast travel using the delivery points from where ever we are. Defeats the point of having to travel to one and then use it.
You wanna teleport instantly to any delivery point on Mother Base? Also, I don't know how you do it, but I spend more time sneaking and engaging in combat than traveling.
"I'm sorry game, I know it's part of your legacy, but I just couldn't find any use for that sodding cardboard box" So true xD
100% agree with this video. Just beat the main missions and side missions
