    I think that's what ultimately left me disappointed.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one having some issues with the detection and reflex mode. The tranq darts sometimes work instantly sometimes don't. It's frustrating. I don't think they need to go back to vision cones, 4's little circle thing worked well, but they need to refine this new mechanic a bit.
    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    I thought the story was decent enough, though hardly shocking. If you know the MGS history, then what happens in Ground Zeroes pretty much just fills out some blank spaces in canon, so not a surprise, so much as a "Oh, so THAT'S how it happens." Which I actually liked.

    Although it's pretty clear to me that Kojima played a lot of Splinter Cell. I don't remember shooting out so many lights before in past MGS games, but it was essential during the night time sequence. Especially if you wanted to cat & mouse it with the guards.

    Yeah, "it's so massive and it's so sad and shocking!" ... I was expecting Kaz flat out murder Paz or something, a completely out-of-character moment for one of them, but nope. It was exactly what they advertised last year.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one having some issues with the detection and reflex mode.
    I turned off reflex mode after my first play through. It's an even greater frustration without reflex mode, and that surprised me.

    The tranq darts sometimes work instantly sometimes don't.
    Yep, because apparently now the tranq pistol works at an arc if you're shooting long distances (how that works is beyond me, the indicator sucks dick) and it has a finite distance, unlike past games.

    It's frustrating. I don't think they need to go back to vision cones, 4's little circle thing worked well, but they need to refine this new mechanic a bit.
    Play it with no reflex and see how you end up rage-quitting multiple times because suddenly some guy you CAN'T SEE sees you from 50 feet away, with literally no hint telling you there was someone able to see you. The "lens flair alert" thing is so random. I've had it get massive on my screen with no alerts whatsoever. I seriously thought I'd been seen at one point, but no...

    And that's the most frustrating thing about it, its efficiency and usefulness is god-awful. You basically have to memorize patterns ala old school MG/stealth games.

    Not even that. It was made out to be this major shocker in the series and how it "Sets the tone for TPP!" and after watching it I was just like "Seriously? Did you people not watch the multiple trailers for TPP where they flat-out tell you it's the result of what happens in this?" I didn't need Ground Zeroes to "set the tone for The Phantom Pain." Those trailers gave me all the information I needed, since they were a massive Ground Zeroes spoiler.

    Although it's pretty clear to me that Kojima played a lot of Splinter Cell. I don't remember shooting out so many lights before in past MGS games, but it was essential during the night time sequence. Especially if you wanted to cat & mouse it with the guards.
    Lighting never really played a big role in MG series (partly due to hardware limitations). I think MGS4 used it but it was limited.
    Great quotes on the internet:

    I hear Galaxy is brilliant, and it probably is. Just can't picture myself sitting down and playing it. That would take time away from watching the Disney Channel and working on my coloring book.

    Damn! I only have six games in my list for this year. (Have a goal of 30 for this year)

    Probably because half the games I beat this year are long as shit JRPGS.

    Dude, I fucked my back up last Monday and have been on my ass since then. I didn't want to start any long games before Infamous so I went through my PSN backlog and chose quick games to get through, that's the last 11 of them. So it's a skewered number.

    If you like cry baby female characters, excessive gore just to make a title M so it isn't compared to Uncharted, and Tomb Raider without Tomb Raiding and puzzles, then yes. It was excellent.

    (I say that, but I did find it a lot of fun. There's just so much wrong with it I can't call it great, or even good.)

    Yeah, last couple days I've been able to get around without a cane. It's still sore but manageable now. I start physical therapy next week. Good times.

    I finished Final Fantasy XIII. Chapter 13 was terrible! It just kept going and there was a weird difficulty spike after one of the room shifts. Also, the last boss was easier then most of the creatures I was fighting in that chapter. I see why it is not very well received.

    FFXIII eroded my faith in Square-Enix and the subsequent FFXIII games further made that faith go down the toilet.

    Now I'm actually dreading FFXV. Surprisingly, FFXIV is quite good, but they had to FUBAR that in epic fashion and get someone new in that knew what he was doing before that game redeemed itself.

    FFXIII did have the GOAT theme song though.*
