LOL @ the insinuation that this game was poorly received because of the drama.

 

I can't speak for the others, but my disgust came after watching a total of 30 min worth of clips of the main character poking things with a stick. I'm guessing the game was poorly received because it's as boring to play as it is to watch. 

 

And yeah I'll admit it - it certainly doesn't help the fact that this trash came out on the back of the controversy wherein MGS was gutted for greed. Konami clearly has no respect for their IP. It's like being the parents of baby Jesus and locking him in a dark quiet room for most of his life. If you love him let him go and flourish. But they hate baby J - err I mean MGS - and would rather see it suffocate slowly right in front of Kojima.

This is a pretty good example of one of the biggest issues surrounding the reception of this game. People (predominantly YouTubers) creating videos that present a disingenuous view of the game, from which those who haven't played it form an opinion, and then proceed to spread that opinion. Not only is the whole "poke things with a spear" thing one of a large variety of options available to you in the game, it is one of the most boring and is quickly rendered inefficient by skill/gear upgrades. 
 
Honestly, Metal Gear Survive is not a game for everyone, hell, not even for most, but the idea that it was received fairly and judged on it's own merits is just fucking silly. With the right agenda and 30 minutes of footage, you can make any game look as good or as bad as you want.

^ this is why 99% of YouTube reviews I do not watch.
ACG is about the only guy I listen to on any game, I don’t always agree with his video review but I do respect him. Even if he loves the game, he will point out the flaws. And it goes both ways, hates the game he will praise the good parts.

Is this the thread I am supposed to go to, to hear Kojima fanboys declare war on Metal Gear?

This is the only legitimate point made against the game really... and it’s really not needed.

This.

 

My positive interest in Survive directly correlates to my disappointment with V.

TC or mods should move or fix this thread. Price is no longer good.

Hey, I'll give the people credit, it was some Grade A clickbait phrasing to make a second character/base camp sound like they were charging you for the ability to save your game. It's especially absurd when you consider that the option can be seen as a more expansive version of the additional FOB purchases from MGSV. Honestly, you could make a better case against it by comparing it to additional Destiny characters of the same class, which gave you two for free. You wouldn't even need the shady wording to do so.
 
That's not to say it isn't all bullshit, like the vast majority of microtransactions in gaming, but that's just the unfortunate state of things these days. Just easier to ignore than people make it sound.

I will not get into my own personal opinions here but from what I’ve noticed there seems to be a negative correlation based on your love for survive or phantom pain. It’s pretty interesting really. But that is also just looking at an incredibly small and vocal sample.

Isn't that essential an argument against ALL video games? You just look slightly cooler and do slightly different things but its essential pressing the same buttons a million times. If you enjoy the experience then great. If not then maybe that's not for you.

If you only own one copy of the game, you need to pay $10 to make a second character on the same harddrive. Of course you haven't heard of that before. No other company had the balls to implement such an anti-consumer policy before. KONAMI is going to fucking burn for this shit.

I collect Metal Gear memorabilia/games and it is very hard to not pull the trigger on this due to OCD.  Goddamnit.....

Bit at $14.65. Why not, its less than it will be at $20 with GCU whenever that happens. I did the delayed shipping to get a $5 book coupon so I can always cancel/reorder if it goes much lower.

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. 

Amazon Prime?  I thought Amazon did away with 20% off if you pre-order?

I have no idea but no need to worry bout that if your a gamers unlocked member at bestbuy you get 20% off every day on any new game you want no matter when you buy them...

I think they just did away with it for Collector's Editions. I don't pre-order games from Amazon very often and only got Far Cry 5 Gold because I couldn't order it from Best Buy for release day shipping or store pick up.

 

I am also very tempted to order this now that it is under $15, but dammit I know I won't ever play it!

I have it sitting in my cart and I am really tempted. If I hadn't already picked up several games this week I would have ordered it already, but I am trying to convince myself that I don't need it and won't play it.

I collect everything to do with Metal Gear.  Only games I am missing is a complete Snakes Revenge and Survive, because both were not Kojima.  I'm watching bad reviews of the game to help me remove it and tell myself that this is not part of the series lol
