Checkpoint: MGS4 Edition

Picked up the Limited Edition box set and I was disappointed by the packaging like Mr. Bettenhausen here. The packaging could have been handled better like the European Limited Edition or the Japanese Limited Edition. Still, it wasn’t bad for $90 taxes included.

Here’s the breakdown of what I received:

  • Metal Gear Online beta invite – for pre-ordering
  • Metal Gear Saga Vol. 2 DVD – for pre-ordering
  • Metal Gear Solid 4 Art-book – for pre-ordering the Limited Edition
  • The Making of Metal Gear Solid 4 Blu-ray – Apparently over 2 hours and all in HD
  • Metal Gear Solid 4 Soundtrack sample – A CD’s worth of songs. Not the entire soundtrack

Like I’ve said before, this is the one of the few franchises I would purchase a Limited Edition for. It’s just that wonderful to me. As for the game itself? Let’s just say this is the definition of a “next gen” game.

I’m thinking about how I’m going to review MGS4. It’s a big game with a lot of content, but what can I talk about without boring people? I’m not going to go into details into all the gameplay options because that would take a long time to spell out. I’ve been trying to concise my writing and collect them into organized paragraphs, but it’s still doesn’t seem fluid enough. I’m fishing for ideas, so please tell me how you like your reviews? I’m not going to do video reviews; that’s just too much work.

As for what I’m playing this weekend, do I really need to tell you?
