I'm kinda busy trying to learn the controls...and look after a baby at the same time.
As I get better at the game I'll post more videos...

looks cool, sound effects are nice too, except the incredibly annoying footsteps...duch duch duch
Commented on 2008-04-25 14:14:29
Quite annoying sound effects when people die. Otherwise looks kinda cool.

I have this on my HDD

can i play it yet ?
Commented on 2008-04-25 14:28:38
for a online multiplayer game.... it looks good... not sure how it playes tho....

the controll is far too slow...

I think MGS 4 will be great... not sure about MGS online

freaking sweet, can't wait to go home and play.

Is it finally online? Great thing I work the night shift--I'm hoping I get to experience a few hours of the game before the servers are fucked later today.

I like the sound effects. Draw distance and gameplay also seems good.

Okay, you guys might want to mention that the US beta isn't available yet since you got me all worked up for nothing. For everyone else, the US beta start time is 3:00AM April 26 (though you can still download a SECOND patch right now). Sony and Konami both fail at online.

Tried a match but took like 20 minutes until I got "unstable connection" but thats why it is called beta.

Character creation is great, I wanted my voice to be as close to similair of bad assness like Snake, so thats done, with a beard of course like Snake (and myself) :P
The face I took is "Type D"

Controls are fine, but it needs practice to memorize everything, I don't even know how to choke or kill with the knife even though I have CQC as skills.

The animation are very cool, its pretty much MGS4 animations all.

Sounds is great, don't know what the problem is here, and I have yet to play it on my 5.1 surround sound, which is tomorrow :D

But anyways, this is my first MGO experience, so I didn't know how it would play, but so far it's like Metal Gear gameplay and Lost Planet multiplayer type, if that makes any sense :P

Anyone know how to choke/kill while doing CQC?

This army of two?? LOL

Gears of War for PS3? Very nice looking gameplay.
Commented on 2008-04-25 16:14:40
Can't say I;m sold on this.
It looks like something that should have simply been the online element of MGS4 rather than a seperate game.
Still, people will lap it up because it's MGS...

Been playin it for the past couple of hours, it's kinda fun but i can see it getting very frustrating very quickly.

Several times iv'e stood toe to toe with someone shooting right at their head with an entire P90 clip only to be the loser at the end.
Also, i've noticed some serious FPS slowdown 3 or 4 times and not during anything particularly heavy...
Commented on 2008-04-25 16:39:02
wow, movement is very slow......LOST PLANET like lol
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:02:59 In reply to Tomarru
are you auto locking? are you aiming over the shoulder or in first person? are you standing or crouched? are you stopped or moving? are just holding down the fire button or are you bursting? what skills did you have equipped? what rate of fire did you choose for your gun?

I'd say make sure all thats right before you think its the game systems.

I think a lot of people miss the appeal of this game. It's the depth, it's the details. It's the team work.

MGS4 + MGO2 = Teh wIn
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:09:51
Wow i think that looks shit, movement animation FTL.
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:21:52 In reply to nobelium
I agree with nobelium, its more realistic than other run-fast shoot crazy games.

But I am still on the edge of how to choke or slit someones throat during the game.

I know you make a CQC by holding R1 but thats all I know :(

when you get close hit square and you lock on,

also spend 20 minutes on the solo training and it feels great after it.

it's more lag than slowdown
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:35:10
Bit slow paced for me like but im in the same boat as DjMizuhara, learning controls and juggling 3 kids at the same time lol!
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:47:42
Lol this is crap, so slow not even good looking and why the hack do you have to spend so many bullets so kill somebody, it looks so stupid.
Commented on 2008-04-25 17:49:19
ok... one question does head shot kills? because from the video it look like it takes alot to bring someone down.

Also is there anyway to disable the soud of someone getting hit... it's nerve breaking...

Yehhh u can do head shot kills.....I played this for an hour today and was quite surprised I didnt get any lag at all....although I did get 'Unstable Connection' a couple of times! Sometimes it was annoying, I was using the sniper and clearly had the enemies head on target and fired like 4 bullets and it did no damage to him :s only to get killed by someone behind.....but hey its Beta so I'll let them off XD

This looks awful honestly. From gameplay to graphics, it looks just BAD. It looks like a cheap version of Lost Planet MP, and that wasn't that great.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
