I have to ask, are you being sarcastic or not? I have been a huge MGS fan but can’t keep up with all the rhetoric around Konami and whatnot. I am tempted to buy this game especially at this price... as a huge MGS fan, I do hope this is real and will bite, thanks.


Not sarcasm at all. I'm a huge MGS fan - have been for nearly 20 years - and I've put about 100+ hours into Survive. The post-game single-player content is a bit of a slog, but multiplayer is fun, and the dev team has been showing terrific support since launch, with bug fixes, tweaks, and additional content being delivered with every Tuesday update. They already had a new game mode, and the first event is ending tomorrow...they have a new difficulty for multiplayer coming this month (Hard is too easy, especially as you approach the level cap), which is likely to include new items as rewards and potentially a level cap increase (maybe new abilities, too).

My only real gripes with the game are a few QoL improvements I would like to see with crafting (ie. Let me craft-to-fill items in my inventory, instead of one at a time...currently only ammo can be crafted in large quantities), and I think the way single player Base Digs (post-game stuff) operate is BS. You have 2-4 waves that are 24 hours apart, with the only way to speed them up being to use the SV Coin currency. So, for the higher-level digs, you need 4 consecutive days where you can play at the same time. If you are not logged on and in single player when the timer hits 0, the dig is done automatically, which a lot of players have had issues with due to their defense numbers being more than sufficient, but their base is torn to shreds anyways. I think you should be able to do the waves as you see fit, and then the entire dig should have a cooldown of several days, to prevent farming too much (which is essentially the purpose of the 24 hour countdown...that, and to encourage you to use SV Coins)

But overall, the game is excellent

$10 for extra character slot kills the deal

 

The game will be cheaper than the character slot at this rate

I own this game and I can say - it's worth the $16 price tag.

The negative reviews and press is only by people who really suck at Survival games and can't understand the fundamentals, and those who can't take off their Kojima blinders for a moment.
 

No, some of us refuse to support Konami's business practices, such as charging $10 for a new save slot.  I refuse to support something like that.  I'm glad this game crashed and burned.

If this drops below $15 I'll go ahead and buy it out of sheer curiosity. Pretty sure it trades in for about $15 at Gamestop right now too.

I thought Metal Gear Solid V was so-so... Lovely graphics and gameplay, but I expected so much more from the plot and characters.  It didn't help that the episodic fashion of the missions make the storyline feel messy and chopped up.  It has probably been my second-highest PS4 disappointment, after Final Fantasy XV.

Having said that, I'm guessing this game probably won't be for me.

Or it IS just a mediocre game that most people didn’t enjoy because while not bad, it’s nothing special? People are entitled to an opinion on both sides.

This is definitively not the issue for this game.  This game may just be a mediocre game, but this game was doomed to fail because of fanboys, politics, and Konami's stupid decisions.  From the second this game was announced, it was crapped on by the gaming community (both professionals and regular people) and never had a chance after that.  Just think if Donald Trump announced that he bought the rights from Valve to make Half Life 3.  Would anyone ever possibly even remotely give that game a chance?

Let's all please take a moment of silence in honor of all those who bought this on day 1.

Press x to pay respects.

Yes, Donald Trump wouldn't actually develop a video game. It would actually probably win him the gamers vote come 2020!

It would be the best game, that I can tell you

Would've snagged it if the single player didn't require you to be online. I don't like games that aren't at least somewhat future-proofed. And considering it sold so poorly, the servers will probably be taken down sooner rather than later, rendering this game into a cup coaster.

You said it best....sooner than later this game will be just a cup coaster because of its forced online single player requirement.

A hard past.

Any thoughts on performance on a PS4 Pro vs One X for this game? Just ordered a PS4 copy but have previously played on One X. Hoping they’re comparable at least?

From what I understand there isn't a big difference between consoles. I am personally close to my breaking price on this, if it dips below $15 I am going to order a copy. Even if this never leaves my backlog and the servers get taken down before I play it, this will make for an interesting conversation piece in the future at the very least.

If you do intend to get this game, I would suggest sooner rather than later, as the endgame (loot and xp, in particular) revolves heavily around co-op, and that player base will only get smaller over time. The developers have been quite good about patches and updates, and have done a hell of a job listening to the community.

I just wanted to add that the PS4 community has more of a substantial player base than both XB1 and PC currently. There are a lot of posts about the lack of matchmaking for XB1 and PC players. Also, I agree about the developers being really supportive and active with the game with weekly updates or a rapid hotfix. :)

Soon you'll be out of games to play because all modern game business practices are shady. $60 a game (full game) started over a decade ago. Today, all games are really $90+ hiding under all the shady practices.

I disagree. Some companies are absolutely shady, but video games generally cost a lot more to make today than they did 10-15 years ago. A lot of us remember paying more than $60 on a regular basis for cartridge games back in the day. The fact that video game prices have remained $50-$60 for as long as they have is surprising honestly. 

 

At the end of the day, these companies need to make money. I personally would rather pay $60 for a new release and get the DLC later if I want to. A lot of the time I am not interested in a games DLC anyway. 

 

I like companies doing standard and gold editions of games nowadays for this very reason. Far Cry 5 is a great example, I paid $80 after the Prime discount and now I have all the DLC because I wanted it, but I had the option to buy the game without the DLC if I wanted to.

I see it a bit differently. Nowadays, companies pump games out like there's no tomorrow, forcing developers to meet deadlines and what not. Lots of major titles come with major bugs from the start.  For $60, you get an incomplete and buggy game. The DLCs model (the normal ones, not the shady ones) really just buys the developers more time to make the games complete, which would have been included in the first place if they are given time for the development. 15 years ago, there were far fewer games but they came complete with minimal fuss. You mentioned cartridge days, yes some titles were over $60 but they were also full working complete games from the start. You can't patch them back in the days, so they had to spend the time to make sure they work before release. I understand it costs more to make games now than before, but I rather they make quality complete games and straight up charge $100 a piece. Quality over quantity. This is of course just my view, a long time gamer. For the companies, it probably means nothing because asking people to pay $100 up front for a complete game isn't gonna go well for the majority. People rather pay $60 first then "finance" the rest.

That's why I have a vast collection of retro games

“DLC” and day 1 patches are now “acceptable” by the masses, along with $60+ prices.

$60 for games with 5-10 hours of gameplay and no multiplayer.... and “deluxe” versions with skins/clothes in game for an extra $5-20.

Since I’ve never played a MG game before.. I’m getting a kick out of all this hate towards a game that with any other name, would be doing fine.

And this isnt the first game to drop 50%+ off in the first month.

Dang, $15 must have been the biting point for most people because it's up to $15.25 already.

Plenty of cartridge-based games came out very poorly and were retailing for $70. No one ever thought a game like Bubsy or a game that is so bad I can't even give it away, Heavy Nova on the Genesis are games that came out as full-priced retail releases and both were bad games. I get games have bugs these days, but I rarely see games come out with bugs that break the game. There certainly are games that do come out like this and it's unfortunate. 

 

I also don't think that many people buy the DLC compared to the base game in most cases. I buy a lot of games and I don't buy a ton of DLC, it's rare that I even do buy DLC for games as I typically wait for a re-release with the DLC included and then a sale so I can grab the re-release for cheap and replace my standard copy in my collection. 

 

 

Well, we are now down to 15 dollars even, folks. Whoever said they were gonna snag it at sub-15 you better be ready to go. 

I missed the drop and now it's back up to $15.40 and I have now lost interest in buying this at all right now. If I see it for sub $15 again though I'll get it, but I honestly probably will never play it anyway and it will be another game lingering in the ol' backlog.
