Another Snake Bites The Dust

I finished my first playthrough of MGS2 HD for my Year of the Snake celebration.

Solidus Snake

*All photos courtsey of GH*

Only a Bronze?  Wasn't worth the effort!  hahahahah

I played on Very Easy and it still took me 

10 Hours and 4 minutes!


Snake's In Manhatten

This is the most mind boggling, mind blowing, mind numbing story driven game I have ever played....I Love It!!

I have barely scratched the surface of this game. The replay value is through the roof!

You can go through and get all the dog tags, which is no easy task,

There are 500 VR Missions!

There are alternative missions aka Snake Tales.  

You have Boss Battle Mode where you just replay the Boss Battles and try for a fast or fastest times.

There is a Theater Mode where you can re-watch certain cutscenes with alternate chatacters.

You could literally play this one game for a whole year to do everything it has to offer.

A whole Year of the Snake...uh Raiden!

Been a long time since I played this one. I still need to finish MGS3. Got MGS4 & have not even started it. Until I get through those its hard to justify a replay, too many in the back log. Despite Raiden MGS2 was a really superb game. MGS on PS1 is still my personal favorite.

Gemini:  I hear  ya on the backlog, Yeah, I wouldn't start this game until you have a lot of spare time to devote to it...a lot!  Yep, MGS on PS1 is my all time favorite and Im saving it for last.


03/29/2013 at 07:15 PM

Geh, I still need to get the MGS collection but both Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge and Resident Evil Revelations are coming up and they'll probably take priority. In some alternate reality I just know I have more money! Must be a blast for other-me!


03/29/2013 at 08:17 PM

Ben:  In Bizzaro World, I have no need for money..everything is free!


03/29/2013 at 09:28 PM

I want a passport to Bizzaro world! Make it happen,James!

I really want to replay this one myself, I forgot about the dog tags. I think I tried to get them all once, but after a while, I gave up on it. I laughed once it got to naked Raiden cartwheeling, and when the President checked to see if he was a eunuch. That guy's genital area just can't catch a break!

Joe:  The dog tags are brutal, Im not even gonna try for all of them. Im probably going to move on to the next MG game, I just havent decided which one I want to play.  The crotch grab happened in MGS3 also....what's up with that Hideo?

There's also that statue Snake blends into in MGS4.... never played 3 or 4 myself, but have watched others play the opening scene with Snake's hand over a statues crotch. Seriously, what is up with that? lol


03/29/2013 at 08:42 PM

Hey GH, what do you think about MGS 5: The Phantom Pain? Do you think that that will convince you to buy a PS4?


03/29/2013 at 11:12 PM

MGS5:  Im on a complete Blackout of news. update, info, opinion or anything  MGS5 related because I made the mistake of reading an article of MGS4 in a popular magazine before MGS4 was released and it ruined a very important secret that I did not know and I would have been pleasantly taken by suprise was I able to play the game by myself without reading that spoiler. In other words the magazine article spoiled tyhe game for me, so I do not read anything related to any MGS to be released.....whew!


03/29/2013 at 09:05 PM

I think that it took me ten hours to get off the tanker.


03/29/2013 at 11:14 PM

Transmet:  Hahahahah.  had I tried for all the dog tags my first run through...I'd still be on the Tanker!


03/29/2013 at 11:32 PM

You were the first person I thought of after hearing about MGSV coming. I figured you would be pretty excited,I know I am. Hideo Kojima at the helm is all the data I need on that  one. The game you just finished is a testament to his genius.


03/31/2013 at 04:29 PM

Wayde:  I am definetly interested seeing Hideo on board, time will tell if it merits buying a PS4....but Im sure it will.


03/30/2013 at 06:04 AM

You are a very cautious man... You save a lot, don't you? :D


03/31/2013 at 04:33 PM

Cool:  Acctually, I thought I'd saved more than that.  I save pretty regular since I never know when Im gonna get called away from my game.


03/31/2013 at 09:13 PM

Heh. Psycho Mantis quote. How did you miss that!


03/31/2013 at 09:21 PM

Lol....I missed it...ahahahaha


03/30/2013 at 08:54 AM

OK, my goal this summer is play all the way through MGS. You have convinced me.


03/31/2013 at 04:34 PM

Tami:  maybe you shouldn't.  You might just get hooked!


03/31/2013 at 11:51 AM

GH! WTF was up with that trophy you posted on facebook lol. Kojima is a perv! I got my box, and am gonna go hide now that I dissed your homeboy lol. Foot in Mouth


03/31/2013 at 04:38 PM

Aaron:  No, go read the comments between me and Joe. In just about every modern MGS game, Hideo has some kind of homophopic reference?  He usually has one character grab the crotch of another character,  This happens in MGS2 and MGS3 and in MGS 4 Snake breaks the private part off a statue.


03/31/2013 at 04:44 PM

Yeah. It seems like there is a lot of weird stuff in MGS games. A trophy called Snake Beater though? I had to do a double take when I read the description for it.


03/31/2013 at 09:23 PM

Aaron:  The best part of earning the trophy is when Otacon calls Snake on the codec and the look on snake's Face.....Priceless!


03/31/2013 at 03:42 PM

Well Im glad to see ur making progress on your snake games for this year, Im still not even a dent into the resident evil series for mine,lol! Sounds like you still have a lot to do though so maybe I can catch up!


03/31/2013 at 04:39 PM

Nicole:  Yes, that's three games so far and I should slow down, I want to play the ps1 version of MGS around Nov-Dec. at the rate Im going I will be through by July!


04/01/2013 at 06:47 PM

Yeah, lots of content. To me though, I don't care about the VR missions. I get my fun out of the campaign. I have the collectors editon of that HD version of MGS2 and 3 but I haven't even got around to playing either of them. Who knows when...


04/01/2013 at 08:36 PM

Monty:  500 missions is a bit much,  I would have welcomed it back in the day when I didnt have such a huge backlog, However, for me the campagin was long enough to statisfy, it actually coul've been a few hours shorter, but there is a lot, and I mean a lot of story to tell in the game...ahahah
