Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence

Finally after 1 year of delays, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence shipped!

I had ordered it way back in December 2005, expecting it to be delivered around Christmas time. However Christmas came, and went….. Then a new shipping date was set at February 2006 , and then May… and then August then again December. By this time I was seriously considering buying it from Japan.

To my surprise I logged onto Amazon, and was presented with the great news that my order had just shipped. I then procceded to sit by the post box for the rest of the day, and then I remembered that I had school. I got home and *GASP* There it was lying on the table waiting to be unwrapped. I tore off the packaging and ran upstairs with my brand new copy of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, and stuck disk 2 straight in my PS2.


Disk 1: Subsistence
Disk 1 of the 3 disk set contains the great game everyone knows, Metal Gear Solid 3. New features in the game are the new 3d camera instead of the fixed one, a plethora of facepaints, camo and other things to make your Snake look the best around. (Its basically the same game 😀 )

Disk 2: Persistence
Now this is where the real fun is.

  1. Online play- Play against people…. online
  2. Demo Theater- Duel against foes from the game
  3. Secrets Theater- Shhhhh….
  4. Snake Vs Monkey
  5. Metal Gear – The original version from the MSX
  6. Metal Gear 2- Again an old Metal Gear game from the MSX

As you can see, there are a lot more features than the original “Snake Eater” release.

Disk 3: Existence
It is all the cutscenes from the game made into one enormous film, I won’t give anything away, but it is the story of the game, nicely wrapped up on one disk.

Gameplay9/10 – Could Improve the camera
Graphics–  9/10 – Nothing really beats this
Enjoyment8/10 – Too many cutscenes I think
Length8/10– The game does have its “long” parts

Overall score: 9/10- Excelent game, much better than snake eater, A must have.

Lost Experience ARG

Today me and Peter went to London to participate in the Lost ARG.

An ARG is an “Alternate Reality Game” where you take part in a mystery that you have to find the answers to.

Lanyard both sides (Click for bigger)

Anyway, I met Peter inside of Wood Green Tube station at 10 am, where we took the tube to Holborn where we changed to the central line and went to Tottenham Court Road. We then proceeded to then spend the next 45 minutes, walking around trying to find the store called “Forbidden Planet.” We gave up after 45 minutes because the experience was about to start (12 noon).

We took the DLR to Island Gardens, where we went an met with the organisers (who gave us free magazines). We were late by 5 minutes and everyone had left by then, much to Peter’s delight (WTF) “Now I can be the leader” Peter exclaimed. Our first clue was on the back of our Lanyards which was “Look outside this wooden home, constructed in 1869.” Can you guess? NO?! It was the Cutty Sark. We spent 5 minutes looking around the outside of the ship (home :P) untill another fellow ARG’er pointed out that it was on one of the flags.

The clue on the flag read “A Place Christopher Wren built, where East meets West.” We both thought of the GMT line (Prime Meridian) where east does indeed meet west. We then walked through the naval college and up the hill. Peter ran up to the top of the observatory and saw that the answer to the quest was written on the grass in huge letters. Peter tried to get a telescope but tourists were using them. He used the remaining time from their money to look at the glyph from above. After sighting the glyph, Peter ran down the hill, and took a closer look. To his horror he didn’t have to run up said hill, but there was a piece of acetate duct taped to the grass in the bottom corner.

Picture from Lostpedia (peter forgot his camera)

So after that trek around London peter and I procured some chocolate and drink, and headed for McDonalds. Just before entering Richard off big brother strolled out of the DLR station surrounded by bodyguards and paparazzi (if you find a picture of us in the paper please tell us or post it here 😀 ). After devouring a McDonalds, we made our way to Forbidden Planet, now knowing the rough location.

Eventually we found it and got ourselves some Apollo Chocolate and bought some prezzies for a mate.

Peter <3 chocolate

After 6 hours of walking (from 10am until 4pm) we decided to go home.

All in all it was a great day, a sunny day!
