We Play: Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

Hey all!  I know I haven’t posted much.  Busy with wedding planning and all, and sort of getting stuck playing InFamous: Second Son.
I still have to get my review of  the HTC One M8, as well as Titanfall, as well as InFamous.  I have yet to actually start the work on these, well, I do have the source material for my Titanfall HAR (Half Assed Review), but I just haven’t been able to put it together.

Anyhow, this is not what this post is about.  About a week ago, Nekked and I did a session on MGS: Peace Walker, and we recorded the whole thing.  Now, it is close to 50 minutes long, and for some reason my audio is very low.  Granted this is the first time we did this, so please bear with us for now.  This is really a test run for some stuff we have planned out.

Hope y’all enjoy it, somewhat.  And if you did, please subscribe to our channel, and like our video…and while we are doing plugs, like our new FB page too! https://www.facebook.com/JWABlog

 

FINALLY Some MGS News

Hey kids. So after a month or so of virtually nothing we finally get some little morsels of MGS news. This post will be a roundup if you will, of the current events that have happened thus far related to anything Metal Gear. Lets get to it.

It looks like NA isn’t the only region that will have gotten their hands on the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection (MGS LC for short). Europe will be the next recipient of this archived collection of past canonical* MGS titles. As with the NA release Europe will also be getting Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid (download), VR Missions (download), Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, and the Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 digital graphic novels. The art book will also accompany this collection and will be strictly for PS3 owners. I say the more the merrier. Everyone should get to enjoy MGS as a whole series. Though Xbox 360 owners will be left in the dark. At least they have the HD Collection, which also contains Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (more…)

PGS: KOJIMA X DEL TORO

20130801-121246.jpg

So I got a chance to see PACIFIC RIM a few weeks ago. Giant robots fighting giant monsters? One word: Awesome! The escapist in me thoroughly enjoyed the movie from beginning to end. Every big action scene had me OOHing and AHHing at every turn. It was a welcome break from the mundane routine of life.

As I watched the movie I couldn’t help but imagine a Metal Gear Solid movie done in the same fashion, passion, and gusto. Hideo has mentioned being in talks with Avi Arad, producer of the famed Marvel Comics turned movies that everyone loves. Knowing this, and the fact that Hideo and Guillermo (director of Pacific Rim) have become quite close, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for a real MGS movie to come to fruition. Seriously, Del Toro’s foray into giant robots and monsters was practically a live action outing of MGS Peace Walker‘s ‘Monster Hunter’ boss battles. We all know MH is a Capcom IP but still, those Kaiju look a massive as the MH monsters. Another thing relating PR to MGS: the fact that those giant robots are called Jaegers. Hello, Frank Jaeger anyone?! (more…)

METAL GEAR SOLID: BIG BASTARD

20130516-103055.jpg

3A is producing, or has been producing, yet another gigantic Metal Gear. This time around its Metal Gear RAY who’s shining in the spotlight. 3A’s last outing was for Metal Gear REX. REX’s ratio is estimated at about 1:48 and I’m guesstimating that RAY will be roughly the same ratio. I’m also assuming the price range will be just as similar at around $599.99. Here are a few new photos to whet your appetites. It’s the size of a gahdamn golden retriever! (more…)

Metal Gear Solid V GDC Trailer

Hot off the pressess from this years Game Developers Conference, Hideo Kojima show’s off the next iteration of his Metal Gear Series.

I haven’t fully seen it yet, but from what I saw, this is making me giddy.
