Quick Pick: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Huzzah! My first venture into the Metal Gear franchise. I bought this back in the holiday Steam sale because of its “enclosed sandbox” gameplay. You can literally speed run this game in less than 30 minutes but come back for more missions inside the concentration-camp like setting.


I’m about two hours in (obviously not speed-running it) and a huge chunk of time has been spent restarting checkpoints because I totally hate being spotted.

Restarted when:

– Pressed “e” instead of MOUSE1 to melee
– I didn’t know the suppressor could snap. Is this a Metal Gear thing?
– Sneak fail!
– Reaction time fail!

Overall, I’m still getting the hang of it. The stealth games I am used to include the latter iterations of the Splinter Cell series and the latest Hitman. Still, I’m loving it.
