Whos getting Metal Gear HD then?

18 Replies 476 Views Created 28-06-2012

So it's been a long time coming but the wait is finally over. It's out tomorrow for the Vita. I just wondered who would be getting it? Im very interested but still not 100% sure as to whether I should get it. I haven't got any Vita games at the mo so need one..

For £20 I don't think you moan but I am dissapointed that Peace Walker is left out compared to the PS3 version... Decisions, decisions.

I started downloading in on my Vita this morning before I left for work.

 

At 19.99 I couldn't refuse even though I have loads of other games to play through on Vita & PS3.

 

I've heard that Peacewalker isn't include because of size, the HD collection is 3.3 GB and their is a cap of 4GB as these are the size of the PSV cards (2GB & 4GB) so for retail it would have to be on 2 cards which would obviously increase their costsand royalty payments to Sony.

 

I'm not too bothered I still have 2 massive amazing games that I had so much fun with on PS2.

The cynical would say it is because Peacewalker is already available as a perfectly good PSP game for the Vita with remappable right stick controls, and they can get more money from us that way (probably some truth in that)... But you raise a good point... PS2 games are noticeably bigger downloads than PS1 games, and we haven't had any other 'HD collection' ports on the Vita yet... One wonders if the entire Jak or Ratchet or DMC collections would fit...

 

Funny people never seem to moan much about Silent Hill collection on the PS3 being only two games... You would have thought they would have included Silent Hill 4 as the third game on the disc, seeing as it is the third PS2 game... Maybe the heavy panning it got was the deciding factor.... Didn't stop DMC2 being included in the DMC collection though.... Personally I'd have preferred they drop DMC2 and improved the ports of the other two games..

I got it, as I never got far in MGS3, and I wouldn't mind playing MGS2 again. <3 solidus!!  I got it on a card rather than PSN, as my 16gb card is already close to full.

 

The control system of MGS2 feels really old fashioned now, and the rear pad knife on MGS3 is really annoying coz Snake keeps slashing away when I'm just trying to hold the Vita comfortably.  Other than that, the games are ace!  Not gonna be playing anything else on my Vita for a while, methinks.  :)

i've never played the games so i think it's finally a chance for me to give them a go!

really excited :D i only got to play a little bit of MGS1 when i was younger on a friends console. i've got it on my PSP but never really got round to playing it. enjoyed Peace Walker too!

But my big question, does anyone know the actual best way to play them? i mean, aren't some games prequels and so on? Whats the way to play them in order? I may have to purchase a PS3 if i want to play the rest i guess!

Ok, I say this every time this comes up... lol... ALWAYS play games, read books, watch movies etc in the order they came out, rather than their necessary chronological order... You will miss things in the narrative if you do otherwise... I point to the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series of books, many of which are prequels to earlier work.. not to mention it's harder going back to inferior gameplay than it is going forward to superior gameplay..

 

You don't need to play MGS1 and 2 to play 3, as it stands quite fine by itself.... but likewise don't go playing 3 first thinking that it will make the others make more sense by being a prequel... quite the opposite... You are more likely to get something out of 3, by playing 1 then 2, then you are 1 and 2 by playing 3 first...

 

2 really would benefit from a run through 1 though, if you can... Without giving spoilers. 2 is 1 for the PS2 in a lot of ways..... 3 however really shakes the formula.. in setting, in characters, and in gameplay, while still very much being a Metal Gear Solid game.

 

Don't feel you have to play the dedicated PSP games to gain something... they are extra bits of development, but not crucial to any of it... much like the God of War games... You will not miss anything by playing GOW 1,2,3 and skipping CoO and GoS....

 

Likewise, don't bother with the Metal Gear games... I've never even seen them, but games in that era were never known for any form of story.... Solid Snake = good guy, Big Boss - bad guy is all you need to know. It's not like he had a great vision for MGS when those games were made... There are bound to be retcons and contradictions galore anyway...  Like how George Lucas at the last minute decided to switch Princess Leia from a love interest to a sister, and Darth Vader from Anakin's murderer to actually being him...

I got it this morning, and it's great! The only thing that could have been done better is the anti-aliasing in MGS 3, it is a bit annoying to watch.

Got the game on saturaday on a card and im loving it, they look fantastic and most of the vita functions are really well implemented into gameplay, also cant wait to give the original metal gear and metal gear 2 games a go.

Cheers for the info! I've just redownloaded MGS1 to play on my PSP (yes, i'm one of the people who still kept it!) I'll give that a run though.

 

Started trying out MGS2 as well, actually find it quite a bit harder than 3, might be because there is more stealth involved?

 

So in order of the games, are there any books as well that i should read that tie into the games?

I remember finishing European Extreme (was that it?) at 5am in the morning when I was 14/15 :D Nailed MGS1 on Hard when I was 10. If I try that now, I'll get schooled :)

Anyway, I'm waiting for PS One support. I'll run through MGS1 (I don't feel like playing it on the PS1/3) then 2 & 3 with the collection :D

I always found 3 harder than 2 and 1 on the easier settings due to there being no radar.... Guess I'll find out again in a couple of days when it gets released on my store...
