Metal Gear… (!)
I have spent a gaming career without any significant play time with the Metal Gear franchise. I think I may have dabbled slightly with Metal Gear Solid on the original PlayStation, and the only Metal Gear game I have ever owned was the GameBoy Color game which I hardly played as well. I even managed to avoid MGS2: Substance on the Xbox. Now I appear to be jumping in with both feet by purchasing the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
Why now for Metal Gear? Well, for starters, I am always attracted to a Collectors Edition that sports a healthy sized book in it as I always enjoy those extras for my collection. I have always also had an interest in MGS3: Snake Eater. I am always interested in games that take place during the Cold War. Finally I am also interested in Peace Walker as I understand it will have co-op over Xbox LIVE.
There is a heck of a lot of gaming here for not a lot of price. Also I will have the opportunity to play these games in HD and with achievements…the way Metal Gear was meant to be played. Military madness, Metal Gear and Modern Warfare 3 both arrive this Tuesday.
