I've played through MGS2 and MGS3 at least 15 times each and I still find new things. I haven't played MGS4 nearly as much since it doesn't have as much cool hidden stuff to find.

Yeah, it was on my last playthrough of MGS2 that I heard that during the countdown to get to Shell 1 (when Emma is dying) if you try and go through any other door that takes you AWAY from the pre-set route, Snake calls to let you know that the entire Big Shell has entered Lock Down for the Arsenal Launch but Otacon has quickly hacked into the security to unlock any doors leading to Shell 1.

All the years of playing and I never knew that since I always just ran straight to Shell 1 without thinking, but this time I decide to try and get off path as much as possible here to see if I missed any stuff, and yeah, it paid off, there was also something related to Arsenal that I found out this time to, I think I posted it in this very thread. :p

And yeah, that's why MGS4 has been ranked lower for me, it feels to set, there's no where near the amount of cool little things hidden around and the Codec was very underused.

Tomb Raider (on PS3)

Pretty fun so far. Can't say much else about it as I'm not too far in just yet. Lots of QTE's and collectibles.

EDIT: This is quite a good game so far. The shooting is all wonky and awkward like the Uncharted series. But I've gotten used to it.

Feel like most of the QTE stuff happens in the first hour of the game. After that it just happens a few more times.

Having a good time with Tomb Raider


GOOD TIMES

Arma III Alpha

It's kewl, if a little poorly optimized. But it's not even in Beta yet so I can't complain. I'm sure it will improve a lot in the next few months.

Yeah, thankfully. I don't know what the fuck but I got stuck on that "rape" QTE for like 20 minutes. I kept hitting triangle and it wasn't registering the moment I would press it. Controller lag or just getting really bad at reaction timing stuff. *shrug* Was driving me crazy. But I'm glad there are very little later on. It also very quickly becomes less survival and more platforming. Having spent a lot of time looking for the collectibles I come across a ton of salvage, so everything is upgraded the moment I unlock it since I have such an abundance.

I also tried the multiplayer. Jumped in one game, went 5-0 and then left. lol

Oh man, when I put the settings up to max with a bit of AA I was really sad at how good it looked. They improved a lot, if the end result is polished to perfection I'd buy a high end GPU to play it properly

It was using 50% of my GPU and like 40% of of my CPU at max settings, so there's definitely room for improvement.

A friend of mine played through Snake Eater on European Extreme without killing anyone. I have an unimaginable amount of respect for him because I could barely get through that game as is.

Anyway, I bought Max Payne 3 because Steam had it on sale. It's 1000x better on PC. Here's to hoping Rockstar give GTA V the PC treatment that it deserves. I doubt they will.

Doubt it, Ironic enough the PC version of Max Payne 3 sold the worst, actually one of Rockstars lowest selling PC games, even lower than Bully! A shame as it feels like it's the only one they actually put effort into!
