    To be fair, I DID spend a ridiculous amount of time doing things the slow way before I got access to more vehicles and other modes of transportation. When you sidestep all that, the game gets considerably shorter. It’s also how I always played Metal Gear though - Go through once and just get the experience down, allowing for mistakes and whatnot, then again with a fine-toothed comb.

    It sounds like you can still do 99% of all the things in the post-game, though. I just like clean slates, heh. Plus, reading all the emails and interviews in real time as I find them has filled in a lot of blanks story-wise, better than I think they would if I just sat down and read them all after the story was over.

    The last time I played a Kojima game was Metal Gear Solid on PS1 and I remember I was so awfully bad at the stealth aspect that I had to have a friend beat it with me. Nor do I remember much about the story. I can tell you that knowing what I was getting into when I started playing this game, I am REALLY liking it. The story is engrossing, the graphics are incredible, and the music is great. So far, I have only logged 3 hours but in the first three hours, I was not bored at all and constantly wanted to see what happened next. I didn't mind the length of the cinematics and welcome them because I know how important they are to the story. I can't understand how people popped this game in and were bored within the first 1-3 hours. They must have been expecting a straight on action game. And, I am not some Kojima fanboy so this is not a biased review.

    Almost 300 hours into my second playthrough. Still loving this game as much as I did after the first time through it. Itís just so cathartic.

    Also, Mondoís dropping the gameís score on vinyl this Wednesday, and announced that a separate soundtrack release with licensed songs from the game will be out later this year. Hell yeah! And as a side note, I think Low Roar is doing a couple vinyl reissues/anniversary editions soon, too...

    Thanks for the heads up on that!

    I haven't touched this game in nearly two months. I still wanna beat it.

    I've never played a Kojima game before, but I really like this one so far. It's pretty addicting and everything is strange enough to be fascinating.

    I need to finish the game, it's in my usual limbo where it sits for months. I haven't touched it since the start of January. I honestly stopped playing due to focus, time and the fact I'm in the mountain region and I hate traversing the area. I need to just finish the game already.

    I played more today. Faced Clifford Unger for a second time in the WWII setting and beat the 7th Episode. Minus 8 and 9, most of the remaining episodes are 1 mission long. Shouldn't take me long to beat the game now.

    Unfortunately I doubt I will get the platinum as I will not soak hundreds of hours into doing every standard order and hitting 5 stars with every facility.

    The five stars isn't that bad at all. Especially if you enjoy the core gameplay. Completing the highway system and building a zipline network are very satisfying and make the five star part pretty simple

    Why does the mountain region of this game have to be multi chapters long? I fucking hate traversing this area. It's such a pain. It's tedious as fuck and why I took a break. Just one more episode to go until I'm free of the area.

    Haha! I literally thought the same thing when I was in the mountain area. In fact, I think that's where I died the most. Not because of BTs, but because I kept taking these HUGE falls. Oddly enough, after I was done and out snowy mountain region, I actually really missed it. Funny how it'll do that to you. I assume by now you are out of there and maybe have even completed the game?

    No I put it on the backburner to finish a few games I needed to and of course Nioh 2 came out and Final Fantasy VII is out next month. Ugh.

    I still want to finish and I will but I doubt I’ll share your affinity for this area of traversal after I finish it.

    I definitely recommend you finish it. I got extremely misty eyed at the end, in a good way. One of the rare times a game has ever done that to me.

    PS4 photo mode expected to be ready by the end of the month, via Kojima’s twitter. Hell yeah! I’m looking forward to devoting hours and hours of time to trying to photograph every single thing.

    Just finished my second play-through last night. Going through a second time and doing pretty much everything I skipped on the first time through was super worth it. Things were much clearer, and I didn’t even realize the first time I finished it that there were additional standard missions post-game that give you a few more interviews and journal entries with some extra info, so I’m gonna try to use quarantine time to get all that stuff and get that platinum trophy out of the way.

    I thought photo mode was already active? Are you talking about just taking screen shots like this?

    Lord no. Legitimate photo mode, not the slow-as-molasses PS4 capture mode. There’s a little footage in the trailer below. (Trailer is for PC version, but Kojima just announced PS4 photo mode yesterday.)

    The timing sucks too, because I’d just gotten done sorting through all the captures I had for ones I liked, heh. Now I can put most of them to shame. Very excited to see what people come up with with this.
