I've having a lot of trouble finishing up the trial "Fastest Marking" on AA, Assassinate and Intel recovery in GZ. Any suggestions on how to do these?

why do I find this so funny

Suddenly I'm reminded of MGS4. I lived at home then in the middle of nowhere, went to tramlaw on launch day and they didn't have it. Myself and two friends then got in my car and drove an hour and a half to the next one and they had it, we dined on delicious KFC and drove back.

I tried to get the Big Boss rank but I always killed something during that loving truck turret sequence with the big ATST things coming after you, because you could only kill them and not the soldiers. After I got my hands on Uncharted (the only shooter ever to control good with gamepad) I couldn't go back to those awful, awful controls again.

Doing this for MGS4 is a legitimate reason to commit suicide.

I just did all these, I ended up doing this:

Mark everyone you can, and kill whoever you can once you mark them (brings down the chance of running into people and getting confused). Finally when you've inevitably missed one person somewhere, just trigger an alert and MAKE SURE you mark everyone before you kill them. Reinforcements will come, increasing your total mark count, but eventually you'll see everyone!

+1 a mostly stealthy lethal run is the only way to be sure. When you can't find more guys, make a scene to attract more dudes via grenades, exploding barrels, exploding trucks, shooting out cameras, or firing an anti-air gun for about 15 seconds. The get prone on high ground near your scene and mark the incoming investigating patrol before killing them.

If Big Boss is a legend on the battlefield, why is he always sneaking around and avoiding combat?

I don't think anyone answered when I asked this in the last thread, but is there a confirmed date for the preload on PS4? I'm assuming it's sometime this weekend but I just want to be sure.

Because if he wasn't he'd be dead. The fact Big Boss is capable of sneaking into a base full of soldiers and accomplishing his objective anyway is what makes him a legend. You can't stop him, even if there's 50 of you, and he turns your own equipment and terrain against you.

Well, also, he's not always sneaking around. He did fight multiple giant robots and had a bike chase against Volgin's forces. That's kinda legendary by itself.

While I pre-ordered a CE in March, my honeymoon ended up being booked Sept 2 to Sept 10. So I get a few hours of play Tuesday night/Wednesday morning before getting on a plane for France for a few days in the Alps in the south, then a few days in Paris.

Nerd-deflated for some time, my nerd-hype/emotion rollercoaster accelerated when I found out that there is a Metal Gear Cafe and Metal Gear Store in Paris to hype the launch. I was very excite to visit this romantic restaurant on my honeymoon. Luckily, we are renting an apartment a few minutes walk away from both locations.

Now this morning, I'm learning that they are shutting down operations around Sept 5, but I wont set foot in Paris until Sept 7.

Honorable Lord Kojima, I know I have wronged you, but must you torture me thus

e/n/tl;dr: I can only play this game for a few hours at launch, and I will also narrowly miss visiting the MGS5 cafe in Paris

Just have your outro music for the wedding be Metal Gear Saga. Did that for mine and hell its even the menu music on the DVD.

What options do you have to avoid triggering an alert in GZ when you're at the top of a ladder and someone's climbing up it? I'm guessing you can't leap down and RKO them off it.

Also I think if you're high enough on the ladder, stay put and they'll bump into you and fall off and get knocked out.

This only really works if you are below them and they are climbing down. I think they'll be able to see you if they're climbing up.

Hey if your going to do something goonish make sure you can love and/or laugh at it years later.

So anyone actually find any instances of people being able to buy it in stores in the US vs early shipping? I remember looking like a nut all over NY/NJ when 4 came out. I went all digital this time (well it wasn't even an option back then), but I kind of enjoyed the hunt itself and wondering how it's going now for people. I totally wouldn't buy and then flip a PS4 copy in Philadelphia to play it two days early...really I wouldn't.

MCV interviewed a Konami exec. Choice quotes:

MCV posted:

“The PC version is stunning,” Edwards says. “We are so pleased to be able to release it alongside the console games, and that Kojima Productions has worked so hard to make it such a strong version. Like Ground Zeroes, the graphics are stunning in the new 4K mode, while the scale and online elements within the game are a perfect fit for the format. Metal Gear Solid V is such an entertaining game, we always wanted it to play the strengths of its host format, and the PC edition certainly does that. It is a stunning conversion.”

MCV posted:

Some doubts linger over what comes next for Metal Gear. Creator Kojima says this game will close the loop on the 27-year ‘Solid’ franchise, and it’s unclear whether he’ll work on another game. “Metal Gear Solid is a key Konami franchise,” Edwards says. “The company has already committed to future iterations, which we look forward to.”

MCV posted:

Metal Gear Solid V features microtransactions, which will be good news to retailers looking to sell digital currency. But in the past, consumers have been vocal about their dislike for microtransactions appearing in premium games.
“They are a minimal part of the game, and merely a short cut,” Konami marketing exec Jon Edwards says.
“The player recruits R&D people to create weaponry and expand their base. While the entire game can be played without using them, microtransactions are available to speed up the development process. They also come into play with the FOB (Forward Operating Bases) element, when players set up additional Mother Base outposts.
Players can insure their base against attack in the multiplayer mode. Kojima Productions has merely added them as shortcuts, but have always stressed that the game can be completed without any cost to the player.”
