MGSV Will Take Me A While To Complete:

I am saying this because for the month of September I have played about 15+ hours of the game and I am only 13% complete. I think this is do to the fact that Hideo Kojima made such an amazing open world Metal Gear Solid game. And I have to blame my self because I'll complete like 2 or 3 main missions then spend a lot of time in the Side-Ops (side missions). Reason for me taking my time is exploring, collecting reasources, and taking my time on each mission (even side-op missions). This is a good thing for me, becuase there is no right way to complete a mission. Yes, there is a guide line to follow to get higher scores, but no right way. Find a base and do what ever you want to complete the mission at that base.

So I am really enjoying my time in MGSV, but like I said, it is going to take a long time to complete it. I wouldn't doubt if it took me till the end of the year.

MGSV is one of the best in the series in terms of gameplay. Story for me has to go to MGS3. I am a little disappointed that the story was turned back so much in MGSV. It is almost like Hideo Kojima heard the crys of MGS4 and how people said it was like watching a movie then playing a game. In MGSV it is like he went completely the opposite and dialed backed the story and stuffed the game with gameplay instead. Not that I am saying it is a bad thing, but kind of wanting a little bit more story scenes then I have been provided so far.

Ok so it is time for more main missions, been spending to much time in Side-Ops. I got distracted with making money and collecting resources for my motherbase. :-D

Slight addiction to CS:GO and HearthStone

So recently I have been on a CS:GO kick. I have always played Counter-Strike, even back to when it started as a MOD for Half-Life, but in CS:GO there are drops of guns when you play. It has kind of got me sucked in to rank up and hope to get some drops. So lately I have been playing a few hours here and there hope to get some gun skin drops. I am not the best at Counter-Strike like I use to be, but I get enough kills to have fun. Really that is all that matters to me in the end, having fun.

On the other hand I got addicted to HearthStone for a few weeks. It reminded me of Magic: The Gathering. Though my addiction to that game only lasted a few weeks. I quickly found out that if you don't spend the cash it takes a really really long time to get anywhere. So I kind of just stopped caring about the daily gold and playing. I am just not that into dropping cash left and right to even be able to compete. Well, back to MGSV and CS:GO....

Metal Gear Solid V Is Out

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is out and I got my copy of the collectors edition yesterday.

I have been playing it ever since, and I have to say I can see why they are calling this the best Metal Gear Solid yet. My favorite of the series has to be Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. I loved the story and how camouflage played a big part of the game. It felt almost real, except for the crazy characters. MGSV has the same vibe to it, though I am only 2% through the game so I don't know if MGSV will be my new favorite yet.

Here are a few pics of what came in the collectors edition:

If you are a fan of the Metal Gear series, you have most likely already picked up the game. If you have never played a Metal Gear game, I would suggest starting at Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater before playing Metal Gear Solid 5. But that is just my opinion.

Back to playing more MGSV....
