hey, guys, can i join? i played mgs1, mgs2: sol, mgs2: substance, and a bit of mgs3. haven't finished the original mgs1 though. i rented the twin snakes and played it instead, but i would've liked to finish the original then play the remake instead. the twin snakes sucked big time. konami's first mistake was to let silicon knights make it. the way i see it, they were tampering with something they didn't understand and the result is the twin snakes, a game full of crappy cutscenes, crappy dialogue, and crappy graphics (the graphics aren't crappy, they're just not konami's style).
konami should have done it themselves. i'm sure they could have added the new gameplay elements from mgs2 seamlessly. the way SK did it, it didn't work at all, plus the gamecube wasn't made for the mgs series. if twin snakes comes to the ps2, i demand a remake of a remake, otherwise i refuse to let this piece of shit be made for the ps2. the new dialogue sucked, and some of the voice acting wasn't the same, although some of them did very well (solid snake, colonel campbell, liquid snake, revolver ocelot, psycho mantis, sniper wolf, otacon, meryl, etc.) vulcan raven, naomi and mei ling weren't the same, which sucked. i know mei ling sometimes gets on my nerves, but the annoying analyst (otacon, mei ling, rosemary, paramedic) is now a staple of the series.
anyways, there were also out of character moments, like when snake goes crazy and points his gun at baker. he isn't that stupid. the lack of an L1 button on the gamecube controller didn't affect the gameplay too much, but it would still be useful. in mgs2, it was used to point a gun while walking or running. in mgs3, it was used to strafe while pointing a gun. the gamecube controller's buttons aren't pressure-sensitive, which is an important feature for mgs2 and mgs3. the remake should have been made for ps2, and konami should have been at the helm. hideo kojima is the only one who understands the series, because he made the games, so he would have done a far better job.
by the way, if colonel campbell is an A.I., how come he talks to snake in person in the twin snakes and mgs1? also, liquid mentions in the beginning of mgs2 that naomi passed snake over for the foxdie program. does that mean snake isn't affected by foxdie? i have a feeling raiden is the eye of the storm in this story. i mean, if campbell is inside his mind, that must mean raiden made the S3 plan. that could also mean that raiden is the La Li Lu Le Lo himself. but that theory could be proved wrong by the fact that the patriots were killed a hundred years ago, which means that they existed at one point. are all those questions answered in snake eater? no spoilers, please.
also, why did rose go along with campbell in the end? she claimed she was part of the S3 plan too, yet at the end we see her talking to raiden, or jack. seems there are a lot of plotholes. i can't wait for metal gear acid and mgs4. anyways, that's the end of my rant. so, can i join?
