PAX 2012: MGS: Ground Zeroes Footage
Right, you better be prepared for this. What you will see now, is the first gameplay footage of the next installment in Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. And yes, it’s good. In fact, it’s beyond good. While actual gameplay is only found at the end of the video, everything that leads up to it…is just….well, the Oxford dictionary doesn’t hold the word I am looking for. I am talking story here, I am talking music and sounds but above all, I am talking immersion – the video has it all, it’s damn well impressive. I would scream out in joy had I not frozen at the sight that unfolded before me.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes certainly deserves to be on nearly everyone’s ‘Watch List’. Meant as a prologue to Snakes adventures in Metal Gear Solid 5, it will bring with it an open world and lots of little ideas that could make this title stand out from all the rest. I mean, what game allows you to play music from your Evac-Helicopter? And yes, your enemies will hear it too. So bring forth the Valkyries if you are so inclined.
But let me not hold you from checking out the footage. Sit down - nice and comfy - lean back and press play. You won’t be disappointed...not even in the slightest.
