I opened up the first mission in Africa, but haven't gone there yet. Going to finish up some more side ops in Afghanistan first. Nice to know they're changing up the structure, I can see the possibility of boredom coming. Basically all I do during missions is hold people up (or knock them out then hold them up), interrogate, Fulton. Gets repetitive.

Having finished yesterday and reading up on some of cut content, the game seems to have had a KOTOR 2 ending. There is an entire third chapter missing. A lot of the game is incomplete and you will realize that when you get to the ending. Disappointing.

Without any spoilers if possible: What do you mean by missing?  I just started playing yesterday and I'm on chapter 2 I think

You are probably pretty far from chapter 2 if you just started yesterday. Chapter one is like 30 missions. For chapter 2, 2/3 of the missions are the same missions from chapter 1 just with different difficulties and restrictions going up to mission 50.

In the game files, modders found a third chapter planned out that included cinimatics for mission 51. Mission 51 wraps out something that happens near the end of chapter 2 that never is explained in the entire series. Also, the total ending does not complete the bridge to Metal Gear. There is still a ton of story missing.

So it's one of those games you start playing and you thinks its amazing, but then it just becomes a mess of repetitive rehash of missions. Then you complete much sooner than you thought you would.

Great. Sounds like another GTA inspiration making it into this game.

Well, I got 60ish hours out of the game and completed only 51%. It was worth it.

Have you been playing the fob missions? They are a lot of fun once you complete the main game. I am currently ranked #3800. The #1 guy has twenty times my score at least though.

It's ridiculous what you can manage to steal from other players if you know how to play and they don't invest in defense

Damn. I really need to do some of those, I'm always short on fuel resources. Problem is I've only finished up to mission 30, and still trying to max out my home base and all the gear. My security team is pathetic and I'm scared if I infiltrate some people's bases, I might piss them off and they could easily come get mine.

How many struts do you have on your FOB? As long you you do not build past the first one that was given to you after mission 22, enemy players will not be able to steal resources. They could only grab men 10 at a time.


If you find someone with the first development base complete and with low security, you could farm a lot of supplies form them

This guy is a dummy though. If he didn't fulton the machine gun, he could have reflex mode killed and tranq everyone on the base without anyone ever being alerted.

I built one extra strut, a command platform. I have my security settings maxed out and stuff researched. Haven't seen any notifications of the whole setup costing me anything extra like upkeep or whatever. Luckily no one has infiltrated yet. I'm on PS3 too, which I imagine isn't the most popular platform.

Last weekend, (played game + medicated), mission 28, blew my mind and is the best gaming experience and so intense and fun and the mechanics and tactics and just hnnnng. And I'm only on PS3, can't wait to do it all again on a powerful PC someday. I thought it was kinda corny when Kojima was calling it more of an infiltration stimulator than some other terms I forget. I see what he means, this game is, like, the ultimate stealth action game and the kind of shit I did as a kid with friends and Lego and action figures and all that shit.

I'm glad you liked mission 28 because mission 47 is the same mission but on extreme difficulty. The snipers will one shot kill you. I never finished it. You don't have to in order to finish the story.

PP's gameplay is great but they ripped too much of the story out of the game and the part they left is disappointing.

I. Fucking. Love this game. Fuck the story, I don't give a shit about the story. Haven't actually cared since MGS4 ended. The mechanics of the game, the feel, the control, the possibilities. I can see how it gets repetitive for people since the core is always the same: go in, extract everyone and everything, leave. There aren't too many memorable bases either, nor any large ones (like OKB Zero and Camp Omega). Side ops were stupid. But still, it all boils down to infiltrating, and they nailed it perfectly and I fucking love it. I'm 200 hours in and still only at 79%. Tons and tons of free roaming, some FOB madness.

The game looks gorgeous too, especially at night, I love the lighting. And that subtle effect of making things flat and panoramic (and not in the limited graphical capability kind of way) after a certain distance because Big Boss only has one eye. I want a high quality PC for this, not just for the graphics, but also because I'd be sinking a ton of time into the game anyway.

Do you still play PP? I just sent you a steam request, MattyKittens.

Ah so that's who that was. Yeah I'm still playing, but just grinding out FOB stuff or doing free roam.

This one is good. Just disregard the story.

I'm with matt regarding it. It is a series that needs a reboot or alternative timeline since the story is so convoluted and corny. Frankly, I am glad the series creator was fired so that someone else can guide it. Sort of like how Lucas stepped away from Star Wars.

Matt, you have 4 FOBS? Did you actually buy MB coins? You know you can use a trainer to get max resources right?

Yeah, I bought MB coins. Can't you get banned for trainers?

Someone Who Isn't Me has used them to invade FOBs across several patches and never got in trouble for it in any way. They don't have any anti-cheat on this or MGO from what I understand.

SWIM used the trainer to max out his resources, develop everything, and build all platforms. SWIM also modded his game files to have S+ and S++ soldiers show up in single player.

I finally invaded someone else's base, someone who must have intruded you, they were on my indirect retaliation list. I extracted every guard (even though most weren't that great) and a shit ton of materials (base dev platform). Feels kinda good, kinda bad, muahaha.

Yeah, I noticed someone on my retaliation list was blockaded and wondered why. That's funny. Have you done anymore FOB invasions on people yet?


What is your security rating? I just unlocked the gun cam and the cam placer. The cam placer adds extra 5 security levels.

I've done a few, but I'm a wimp and always do low level ones, ones that I'm at least 90% certain I can make it through without getting caught. Some of my platforms are lacking, so I'm waiting until those get further along, as well as developing more security devices, before I start invading people more.
