Metal Gear Solid is notorious for being tricky to follow. Probably the easiest approach is to go in order, MGS1-4. Some events in MGS1 call back to the MSX games, but MGS1 can also be read as attempting to remake those games. MGS3 is somewhat disconnected from the rest of the narrative, so it's not necessary to play it after the previous two games. ...

Metal Gear would absolutley destroy the foundation of war as we know it. It's, as stated, a Bipedal nuclear weapons system. This would create all kinds of issues as it would give it's controller the ability to launch a nuclear weapons attack from anywhere on the world. In addition, it's mobility completly takes the 'range of the missile' out of the equation ...

WHEN: In Metal Gear Solid 1, Revolver Ocelots hand was cut off by a cyborg ninja (Grey Fox), while fighting with Solid Snake. After the incident of Shadow Moses, Ocelot got hold of Liquids body (or at least his arm), which he used to replace his arm. HOW: This is not explained in Metal Gear Solid 2, but in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. I could ...

The Metal Gear Solid series is a sequel to the old MSX/NES Metal Gear series (Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2:Solid Snake). In Metal Gear Solid (Metal Gear Solid:The Twin Snake), they give you a detailed, retconned synopsis of what happened in the original two games. Also, if you have the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for Xbox 360 or PS3, they include the ...

On one of the last tape you unlock, you can hear Ocelot discussing this with Big Boss/Naked Snake. (Not the exact word since I can t listen to it right now): "He was our best man, almost as good as you, he will be fine, and I ll be there to support him" He is implied to be the best MSF soldier you had in Peace Walker, and like in MGSV: TPP, soldier you ...

Through various sources I have compiled the following bio stats, where they have got the stats from I'm unsure however: Solid Snake was 178cm in 1999. This was cited from Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake - User's Manual, Konami Corporation (1990). Interestingly he is also stated as 182cm from 2005-2014. This is cited from The Mk.II displays this information on-...

MGS:PW had drastically different controls in the HD bundle due to a combination of it originating on the PSP which lacked the L2/R2 buttons and Kojima experimenting with alternate control styles. I believe that the original version of this game allowed for a variety of control schemes. New control schemes were not added to other MGS games as this would have ...

Is there any content or advantages I miss out on for being late to the party? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think so. The only thing I can think of is MGS4's Metal Gear Online (the multiplayer component), which is no longer active. However, that is to be replaced by MGSV's implementation of MGO, which hasn't been released quite yet. As far ...

Vamp had quite a bit an out of the ordinary story. So Vamp got his training in the Navy SEALs anti-terrorist squad Dead Cell for which he was a member. So basically about this skills with knives, guns, etc. that's all we know so far. For his "supernatural" abilities well: Prior to his membership of the Navy SEALs anti-terrorist squad Dead Cell, Vamp ...

According to the game it's so they can launch nuclear missiles from anywhere on the planet. The idea being that a bi-pedal tank could go anywhere. Of course it doesn't really make much sense, and there's a funny conversation in MGS3 where the character SIGINT explains exactly that, pointing out what a stupid idea it is. It's all part of the fun of MGS! :)

The answer is based on language. If you have a game localized in a specific language which your game does not support for your region and you try to import that saved game, it will not work; however, if the save game is localized with multiple languages, one of which is yours, then it should work. Operative there is, 'should', and I say this because no game ...

It might help if you look at the series timeline to get to grips with the Snakes: 1964 – MGS3: Snake Eater 1970 – Portable Ops 1974 – Peace Walker 1975 – MGSV: Ground Zeroes 1984 – MGSV: The Phantom Pain 1995 – Metal Gear 1999 – Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake 2005 – Metal Gear Solid (The Twin Snakes) 2007/09 – MGS2: Sons of Liberty 2014 – MGS4: Guns of the ...

So I am very confused on this, there are two snakes? Five, actually. Unmarked spoilers ahead. Big Boss (Naked Snake) is the original Snake. The other Snakes are cloned from or based off him. Solid, Liquid, and Solidus are imperfect clones made by the L'Enfants Terrible Project. Solid Snake is the protagonist of MGS1, part of MGS2, and MGS4. Usually, "...

He's described as one of the best soldiers from the old mother base. So when he's put into the role of Big Boss, it's not too much of a stretch that he's on par with Big Boss. I think it's his great skill plus a bit of a placebo effect that makes him passable as the real big boss.

Remember your first mission? Ocelot sends Venom in to save Miller with no backup to, "Prove to the World that you've still got it, that you still are Big Boss". Like Big Boss says in "The Man who Sold the World" -- "[They] are both Big Boss". As to whether or not Venom's skills are actually a match for Big Boss, we won't know, but the point is, it doesn't ...

Here's a pretty good article from Gamespot It's a story breakdown leading up to the event's of Ground Zeroes, the prolouge to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

After recusing Sunny he worked with EVA and her Paradise Lost Army however was captured by the Patriots where they experimented on him, while he was recused but the damage to his body was to severe so Dr Madmar made him into the Cyborg Ninja we see him as in MGS4, maybe also because of Raiden becoming more fascinated with Japaneses culture after using the HF ...

From the 'Blade Weapons' wikia page: [...] was used by Solid Snake during Liquid Ocelot's Insurrection in 2014 [...] So it first appears in MGS4, however... Upon recruiting Old Snake in Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus, the stun knife can also be procured. So it's available in both MGS4 and Portable Ops Plus

Games from different regions have different game codes. This means the save data on your console is theoretically identified differently based on these game IDs. So, based on this, it means that cross-saved files won't work if the games are from different regions. The console itself would identify the games as being different, so it wouldn't pick up the save ...
