Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Happy Weekend

I have had so many fails in the last few days.  I just recently purchased a classic game, knowing that I can play it on one of my current systems, and maybe do some vid cap, and launch our retro re-visits.  BUT when it went to that portion of the system, my Happauge decided that it did not support it, so I could not do any captures.

I also tried to play Metal Gear Solid 2 HD and the controls was just oh so old or at least it felt old.  In any case, I am planning on taking a break from some gaming, and try to get out and enjoy the sunshine, and catch Man of Steel later on.

What’s everyone’s agenda this weekend? Playing anything?  I do eed to get going on the Last of Us.  I played it for a bit, and I was impressed for the hour or so I played.  I will follow up on that in a bit.

 

Happy weekend all.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Comes Close To Great, Hampered By Wonky Controls

I remember mentioning in a post a few weeks ago that I’d be writing about my endeavors with the recently released game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, by Kojima Productions and Platinum Games. As my paternal/parental duties take precedent I barely have time to even warm up the ol’ PS3 let alone have the energy to concentrate playing the game when I have the chance. Having said that, I was actually lucky enough these past two weekends to squeeze in some playtime between my kid’s requisite bottle feedings, nap times, and occasional fussiness, thanks to my awesome Wife slash mother to the aforementioned rug rat. That, and posting via mobile app actually works for my blogging needs (feeding/burping baby while updating my posts). Hey, a brother’s gotta know how to multitask. Means more content at faster intervals to all you wonderful people! By the by, since I rarely get these precious nuggets of free time to absorb some gameplay, this will be a Staggered review of the game. In other words, you’ll get more information about my impressions as I chip away at it. Alright, let’s get to it.
