I thought this was going to about that doctor that wanted to do IRL head transplants and also sue Kojima before I clicked this.

In The Old Blood they had to specially tailor a Nazi uniform for him because he was too massive to fit any of the uniforms they stole, I'm sure he'd be happy to have a body that didn't actively interfere with his work like that.

Also I was recently exposed to the theory that per an interview with the devs that said this time the choice at the start will be between two objects instead of two people and that it would drastically change the way the game played, and going off of the trailer's emphasis on head transplants and the fact that you see BJ both in the robot suit and the human body that that choice will be picking which body you get on and that the robot body will have jet boosts and poo poo and I think that sounds cool.

You probably need to research more powerful weapons.

Peace Walker runs more on RPG logic I guess than classic Metal Gear logic.

There's something I'm missing. Kaz keeps saying "Now, Now!" Every time I stagger it, but I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do the. I thought it was shoot at the exposed missile, but it doesn't seem to do anything and onyl does 80 damage instead of 400.

I got it down to it's last health bar last time, and then every time it hit it I got that prompt...

Edit: durr, use the battle suit.

Isn't the whole premise of wolfenstein, besides that killing Hitler allowed someone smarter to take over, that all the insane stuff the nazis experimented and developed during the war ended up working? Hence the totally alive, not dead after a few seconds cat head on a monkey body.

Kind of? Hitler being alive or dead changes depending on which game we're talking about but the premise that "this ridiculous technology worked somehow" is the burning white-hot core of Wolfenstein, right up there with "you play as a Polish-American built like a goddamn brick shithouse".

Well the thing is that specifically the last two wolfenstein games were about how the nazis won the war and solidified their rule over all europe using secret jewish science they stole from secret zion tablets. Which is uh. Well. It's not the direction I would've gone.

Eh, it's not like the poo poo they tried in reality was any more sane. The nazis did a lot of really absurd poo poo trying to create the war-winning piece of tech. Occult stuff is only a hop skip and a jump away from where they were at when they lost.

No that's fine, nazi sorcery and megatanks are a tried and true comic book trope, it's just really weird that the magic superscience that actually exists in the setting is secretly hoarded by jews and used by nazis to build an empire. Like not offensive, just a weird call. Like I guess it's supposed to be ironic because all their superiority is stolen from those they deem inferior, but it's also sorta tonedeaf.

And speaking of tonedeaf, boy did I get sick of BJ's whispering inner monologues.

The only thing keeping me from replaying Wolfenstein TNO is that goddamn segment with the underwater jet ski thing where you hear all about billy boy's americana home life while also doing slow slow slow infiltration with pretty much no shooting

edit: Also that part where you're at the resistance base and in your attempts to get a slab of concrete BJ falls through the floor or something dumb and you have to work your way through the sewers to get back
