Beware! Herein lie bad words and spoilers for Metal Gear Solid 4
EDIT: 15th of August 2008
GOD F******* C*** B****** PIECE OF S*** YOUF*****TUBE!
God damnit! You have no idea, people.
The Metal Gear Solid 4
cut scenes, which I watched completely
engrossedly for the past two days, are absolutely beautiful. Never did I expect a game world to be so emotionally intense. Neither did I expect the story to draw me in and hold my attention, even through countless minutes of exposition monologues
. You fall asleep. Zzzzzzz. Old Snake
is fantastic. While his younger self, with his gruff exterior and the creeping five oclock shadow looks
just like any other one note action hero out there, his silver-haired counterpart automatically exudes history. Hes been there, killed that
and has returned to fight yet another day. Yesterday's fight is behind his eyes.
Ive never played the game
nor do I think it likely that by some miracle the massively overpriced PS3 console shall drift in through the window
. Thus, I watched the cut scenes like a multi-part film.Ok, Ill watch till 1 am. Thatll do.
five more for symmetry.
Meh.. lets finish this Act. Really cant leave that dangling till tomorrow now can we?
That one was only a minute long, I guess one more wont hurt.
Oh bugger that, Ill watch till 4 am.
Hay! Shamaun, Ill finish this today! Ill be sleep-deprived tomorrow, but happy. Gosh damnit
, it just drew me in.. with all its addictive angsty goodness, inescapably, for hours. The fights were detailed with elegant choreography, with the mechas and cyborgs satisfying my sci-fi itch. The villains were cheesily overdramatic, hey.. we wouldnt have them any other way. The heroes were heroic
The plot rolled downwards along a slippery slope, inevitably approaching its darkest point. It was tragic, really.
We watched the hero fall and stumble and then get up again, only to be shaken back down into the dirt. I felt myself moved
absurdly, by a few well-placed pixels and computer code.
Here we were, Old Snake
and I, at the storys darkest point; wed journeyed thus far through the shadows together. Soon, there shall be the release, a resolution.
What embarrassment there was for being this
taken by a fictional character, I shoved out of the way by Act Five. To Hell with it!
to be moved. I wanted
a film make me feel
lying there, shattered, half-dead. Otacons words passing unheard. A solitary ghostly voice promising everlasting rest.
One more part and Id have been bawling
my sodding eyes out.
only the worst thing EVAR happened
Yes, you might have guessed it
I discovered that the whole of the finale were pulled
by YouTube. F**K! F*****G B******S!
Have they nothing better to bloody do?! Ten parts, wiped out.GOD DAMNIT!
Thanks for destroying an experience, Viacom
Thanks to you countless Indy films
wont get discovered. Those overseas television programmes
can kiss word-of-mouth goodbye. Thanks to you, Viacom
, their DVDs wont be bought. Im not even talking about games here.
I believe this is what it feels to be screwed
You reap what you sow
in time it will return to you, Viacom
P.S. Actually it IS
Ah well... I can go back to despising people again.
P.P.S. If anyone can find the ending of Act Five
as well as the whole of the Finale
let me know. dA Buddies
