PlayStation 5

Did the new Xbox flop? I’ve barely heard it mentioned (obviously not in this thread, but real life, on social media etc) :grin:

Pretty sure it’s getting a directors cut on next gen release as well so must have done something right for it to be released

Yeah I think it’s one of those visually incredible games with just “eh” gameplay/storyline etc

Yeah as soon as I heard it was being made by Hideo Kajima I skipped it. I stopped playing his games after Metal Gear solid 2. I played the first MGS when I was like 10 and was just blown away, there was nothing like it. Played the second one with my cousin on the PS2, and was shocked and confused in addition to the crazy story line and dialogue it was littered with Unskipable cut scenes that ran for over 30 minutes. Like legit 30 minutes of bat shit dialogue you couldn’t skip. Finished it and swore I wouldn’t never play another MGS. All his games have become like that, were they Have massive portions of nothingness and proper out there story lines and crazy ness.

Oh I loved mgs2! One of my favourite games ever, strange the contrasting opinion there, though now looking back those constant calls from the general where there was just no sense being spoken half the time was irritating, but as a younger guy I guess it added to the mystery of it all. It was mgs3 where they lost me.

Splinter Cell is a vastly superior stealth game to Metal Gear Solid.

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is the single greatest entry in the stealth genre.

Michael Ironside as Sam Fisher, now that’s voice acting.

Fuck those SC games were so sick.

Never played them, even though they were highly rated and looked sick at the time.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS5 is beautiful

Man I fucking love Hideo Kojima’s work, give me the Japanese franchises over the American ones every day of the week. I can’t help but associate gaming with Metal Gear, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy.

I’m so glad I grew up playing those types of games instead of shit like Fortnite.

@JakeyBoy have you heard there’s going to be a Splinter Cell animated series on Netflix soon? Isn’t Metal Gear just Splinter Cell if it was told like it had Anime narratives lol. I’m actually quite looking forward to it, hopefully it’s on power with Netflix’s Castlevania.
