    I just finished the 3rd and Jesus it blew my mind. I'm playing it through again before I touch 2. Really good.

    About half way through MGS 2 and quite enying this. Controls are still a bit shit, but teh game is growing on me fast.

    Only major gripe is that it is impossible to fucking hand to hand kill someone.

    -Sneak up behind someone, go to strangle them and:

    ...you fucking throw throw them. Guy gets up, you die.
    ...you miss because the camera angle was deceptive on how far away you were from the guy. You die.
    ...it actually does grab the guy, you strangle and kill him. On the 58th fucking time you attempt it.

    Should be so easy to do.

    Your missing the point of metal gear solid games, your not supposed to kill anyone if your playing the game right.

    I'm with you on the general control issues. It's always been the way with MGS games, but even things like sliding along walls is a touch too tricky, making a brilliant game a little frustrating.

    Currently fighting FatMan and can't remember what I need to do to hit the bugger :)

    That is the bit I finished last night. just keep shooting him. After a few shots he falls over, that lets you shoot him in the head.

    Oh, and I love the little touches I keep finding.

    Touching on the screen zooms in on cutscenes. Moving the sticks moves the heads in the PDA.

    Tiny touches that are pointless, but show how much care and attention to detail has gone into the game.

    Press the shoulder buttons when in the codec while the other person is speaking to hear what Snake or Raiden thinks of what they are saying.

    Pointless, but pretty cool!

    There is an easier way of beating him just place a load of claymores around and as soon as he runs into one he falls down and you can get an easy head shot off on it, nice and simple. Also has the nice benefit of controlling which directions he can get to you from

    Decided to start 2 before 3 as that is the one I struggled with before and want to leave the best till last. I'm also a bit fed up with the jungle setting after PW. But fuck me is it hard! Also how do you load a save during a game instead of waiting to die?

    This price upanddowniness for the DL version is getting on my nerves. I bought at 23.99, assuming the original price a limited offer, so I've been stiffed!

    Why do Sony hate me so much?

    I do apologise, the main list states 19.99. The product page is 19.99 but then when you tap Buy Now it's 23.99.

    Tits, Sony.

    Ed: Okay perhaps I should heed my own advice and close the store! Damn you standby mode!!!

    They sent that store email out yesterday saying it was 19.99... They should probably make up their minds on that at some point.

    Ha, no worries. Would have liked to have received that email yesterday about the 19.99 price, as it is the physical copy is cheaper on amazon

    I just went with a physical copy from Shopto, personally, since the file size is pretty large and my 32GB card keeps filling up surprisingly quickly.

    Hoping to get back to playing this now I've finished off Uncharted although FFI keeps drawing me back. :)

    I've only got a 16GB card, but I still prefer games on there because carrying games around is so fiddly! Also, there's something about buying games digitally that makes me feel less guilty for some reason, maybe something to do with the fact there's less boxes lying around...

    Did you pick up the rare snake again after you lose it? Towards the end you recover your gear but need to restun the snake outside a cave...

    Yeah the thing is I went through and jotted down what I got. I have all 11snakes from A-K including rare snake at the end Tsukinoedvjjy or what ever it's called. I'm pretty certain the Kerotan is on the bike ride but the snake one must be glitched. I killed the dog in the sewer so if it wernt for the snake trophy.i'd start from the sewers as I have a save not far from there. Shame
