    Out Thursday 12th of June Worldwide.

    Snakes last adventure.

    Ties up all loose ends in the Snake story of Metal Gear.

    PlayStation 3 only.

    Includes MGO starter pack.

    This is the big one people, prepare!

    This thread will contain spoilers. If you are worried, get out, now. Every precaution will be taken to protect you, but some people are just dumb, so read at your own peril.



    When posting spoilers, or something you think (don't think, it will probably be a spoiler) use the following code and change the <>'s tp []'s to make the text harder to read;

    Code:
    <B>Warning Spoilers Ahead</B><COLOR="Silver"> </COLOR>

    With that in place, please, please be fucking careful when posting, story is everything in MGS and people are going to be pissed when you start saying "Oh wasn't it cool when..." and go on a tirade about how great it was when Raiden kissed Snake on the mouth.

    If you're asking for help, use spoiler tags.

    If you want to ask about story elements, use spoiler tags.

    In general, use spoiler tags, ok? Even for something like game locations, just be considerate of everyone else enjoying the game.



    Anyone found not using spoiler tags and posting spoilers will be immediately banned from the thread.

    Like Mass Effect, I might not join this discussion until I passed the game, as I will be playing it at a slower pace, since this weekend is my son's birthday so I won't be diving in until next week.

    I just found out about the Walmart special this week. Went there and bought a PS3 40 GB for $399, plus you get a free $100 gift card. Now when I go back on Thursday it will be like I'm getting Snake for free! I WIN!

    Clear up some rumors for me. How long is the install time, and are there really 90 minute long cut scenes?

    No Dorkus Maximus, what day? :D  You know how it comes out the 12 but Gamestop usually says "That's the release day." I just don't know if that means it comes out Thursday at midnight or Friday at midnight.

    I hope it's Tomorrow night because I won't be here this weekend to play it.

    The 1st install is about 8 minutes, with periodic 3 minute installs throughout the game. We'll confirm the 90 minute cut scene after we play it.

    What the hell is is doing installing during the game? just get it all over with in the beginning and I'll make a sandwich and play Xbox while I wait, instead of interrupting me in between.

    I didn't realize you were working there, I guess the amount of calls could start to get ridiculous.

    Seriously, that seems very strange.
