Still playing this in 2019.
Yeah, it would not survive well the rough and tumble of being a zipper pull, but I’m still pleased you like your gifts. Happy Holidays ^^
I’m really glad you liked the gifts! And the pikachu thing is a cross stitched ornament. And I didn’t include batteries because I was worried they’d leak, but the bank does make the coin ping noise
Super cute Pikachu and cool gifts, Geek =)
omg. you live
One of these days I hope we can get a ZOE3. The ZOE series being one of my top 5 game series.
Are you sure you’re not writing about ZotE2 as that game was brilliant, ZotE1 was just a good game with a lot of potential. Shame about the PS3 port though...
Oh yeah, agreed. I just hadn’t thought that much about how the other MGS games had so many noticeable gameplay risks but not MGS2 before reading your article.
I never hated MGS2. I enjoyed its many mindfucks (some of which were much more offputting than swapping out the series’ main protagonist). I even found MGS3 too tame and straightforward in comparison and was disappointed the first time I completed it.
I think a lot of what people hated about Raiden is what Kojima…
I liked the switch, never understood the hate of a great game.
Metal Gear Solid 2 is one of my favorite post-modern games. It’s just... it’s really well done.
Y’know, it’s funny: I’m thinking about your comments about taking risk and while I think MGS2 certainly took some pretty big risks in terms of story, from a gameplay standpoint it’s probably the safest follow-up in the series history.
Yeah, Raiden sucks. It’s bad enough that I have to hear that guy bitch and moan. On top of that, any time you need to save your game you have to call your girlfriend! That’s was one of the worst parts of that game. If I could I would stab Rose in the face....
People who complain about Raiden completely missed the point and Kojima was mocking them all along. I love this game. Kojima at his best.
My biggest problem with MGS2 was the plot. I think maaaaybe at one point I understood it, but it’s so convoluted that now I struggle to remember. The oil rig was a simulation, or something like that? But then why were the bad guys there?
I’m looking forward to whatever you decide to do next! GOTW was a really cool concept, but you shouldn’t let that stifle your creativity.
No problem. Also did you play gundam versus my sister just got me a copy?
Don’t rush it. If you stopped enjoying it give it some time. Let the love refresh and we look forward to what ever you cover next.
