Recommended | PS3 - Metal Gear Solid 4...


One of the coolest gifts I've ever received was a PS3 (this past birthday, from my younger brother and eldest sister). I was initially in shock when I opened the package and was actually somewhat dismayed, my initial thoughts were, Great! How am I ever going to be able to save any money now? I'm going to need to buy a new HD TV, start purchasing Blu-ray discs to add to my (rather large) collection of movies, and PS3 games... ;) j/k. I can't thank them enough for the gift!

Anyhow, lately I've been trying to play through Metal Gear Solid 4 - Guns of the Patriots, and I have to say it's an amazing game... not only are the graphics, and movie-like, cut-scenes super cool, there's so much depth to the game it's ridiculous. It's not your typical action game, where running around like a maniac and shooting up everything in sight will work. This game is all about stealth and strategy.

I'm sure that opinions will vary, as some of the cut-scenes are rather lengthy, but the cut-scenes really add to the overall development of the story. I might be biased as I've been a fan of Hideo Kojima and the MGS series since first playing it on PSone. I'd highly recommend MGS4 for anyone looking for a challenge on their PS3, if you're playing through and need some hints, go and visit the MGS4 page on WikiCheats (a great online resource for video game tutorials and walkthroughs)- cheers!

It's a shame that we're not going to see Adrian outdoors for a long time.

I'm completely open to setting the PS3 aside for some 'outdoor' patio action (or maybe some golf), whilst the weather remains tolerable... ;) give me a shout!
