Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Recommended Posts

I know I moaned about a level last night. But the game really did fuck me over. What didn't help was that I was going for my first S rank, and got really far into the mission before shit going sideways. I got right to the end a few times and my chopper kept getting shot down.

I have thought of a new tactic for it tonight. But it'll be the complete opposite of my non-lethal attempt.

I'm just going to kill them.

All of them.

For anyone wondering, it's mission 18.

First S rank!?

I'm on mission 3 or 4 and have 2 S's, I assumed they weren't too tough?

Apologies for the noobish question - been avoiding reading the thread due to potential spoilers - but after you finish a mission, what is the best way to "refresh" your gear. All I want is to get the suppressor back on my tranq gun, I have plenty of ammo - so I tried just calling in another copy of the gun (which already seems a waste) but as it was equipped it wouldn't let me. I could start another mission, but would like to do a couple of side ops and have a suppressor with me?

Supply drop. Go into the missions menu and resupply your ammo, it will renew suppressors and any other degradable/usable items.

Just do an ammo drop, it'll replenish suppressors and futons as well as just your ammo.

Thank you kind sir (and you Stanley)

+1 for another guide book order. - still awaiting dispatch

Quick question (sorry if its been covered already!) I played GZ earlier in the year but I didn't really enjoy it. I thought it was just ok. I've heard great things about this though so I wanted to know how similar it is? Or rather, is it worth buying if I wasn't that into GZ?

Ta! x

It's the systems from GZ but in a larger, open environment.

I bought the hardback guide yesterday. Need an MGS1 guide to complete the set :)

Edit: Bought an MGS1 guide :facepalm:

Well instead of just the one area, this covers two much larger maps and around 200 activities of varying length using the same sort of techniques and objectives that were sampled in GZ. There is also a base building / R&D element. Thirdly, there is rumoured to be some on-line functionality but since the servers are in a state of constant maintenance this is as yet unproven.

I just love how heavily systemic this is. Even a simple 'find a blueprint' side op can become much more interesting and involved when you sneak around a derelict village, find a lone guard to interrogate who points you to some stuff, where another patrolling soldier finds you but also gets interrogated into telling you where the specialists are and so on.

It's giving me that Far Cry 2 feeling (which was the best one for the kind of emergent systemic stealth I love).

Not to he a broken record on this thread but the collectors guide is glorious.

And having had a careful flick through, reveals that this game has more depth than I had any concept of it having.

Where Do The Bees Sleep was just incredible. I replayed the section at the bridge about five times, trying different approaches and seeing what happened. It's epic to the point where a single mission can be several hours' careful work, almost exhausting, although the rewards are enormous.

I am micro-managing the shit out of Mother Base.

I'm currently reading the guide. First chapter in and i've already learnt that the games 'difficulty' comes from the enemies actually adapting to your particular playstyle (i.e. if you love headshot tranqs, they'll wear helmets more often). Certainly explains why they're calling in gunships everytime i'm spotted. ^_^

Fantastic stuff!

I will say the soundtrack for this is mega good. Had it on loop for the last week and it's superb.

Not sure if it helps but I've gone from take it away it's a metal gear game to this is bloody amazing just by playing GZ in the last few days and really getting my head round the systems. Now have V on order and cannot wait to get stuck in to it next week. Been replaying GZ over and over (S rank and Hideo found for me, w00!) and it is truly brilliant so if that is anything to go by V should be/is something special. Can't believe how much I've changed my tune.

Oh and to complete my conversion I've just ordered the guide as well...lol! :lol: ($21 so can't complain).

V will blow your mind. Though at first it's quite overwhelming compared to GZ. At the time that was very open world and sandbox for a MG game, or any stealth game really. But Phantom Pain is somwthing else. Bigger and grander in every way possible. You're gonna enjoy it, a lot.

Love will tear us apart playing as quiet kills on overwatch.

fucking awesome

The best song of all time and what's shaping up to be one of the best games of all time.

Can we say that yet?

Yeah, loved this one too. On the bridge

I switched off the power exactly as a sandstorm came in. Everyone lost their minds and a whole load came running over to see what was going on and I just walked the other direction over the bridge and snuck past the panicked guys on the other side while listening to rebel yell, really satisfying

:lol: For the main HQ of the mission though I decided to give up my prudent stealthy approach to the mission and called in the attack helicopter while sniping motherfuckers - THAT IS AWESOME OMG DO IT.

Amazing that you can develop weapon specific load outs later on, scopes, and the likes for your favorite weapons and love the fact that most weapons including assault rifles and sniper rifles and even grenade launchers can be tranq specific.

I wonder if the wildlife gets more feisty and larger in Africa?
