Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Unboxed

If the in-game advertising wasn’t enough of a reminder, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker comes with a flyer for Peace Walker branded Mountain Dew.


That’s what inside the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker box. Yes, you hold the manual horizontal to read it. Comics explain how to play the game and introduce new characters like Paz Ortega Andrade.

    Wonder how many people bought it from PSN store at the same price. I just placed order for this yesterday, hope this game is worth it, looks like a direct continuation of MGS3 (my fav). Seems like both Peace Walker and NIER have very high reviews, so I’m getting both the Jpn/US ver. So are there any Assassin’s Creed or Monster Hunter stuff or they were just promo videos?

      While Peace Walker did get a perfect score from Famitsu (no idea about any other reviews), it’s questionable how legit that score really is. I used to defend them a few years back, but they just seem to get more and more ridiculous as time goes on. The fact that they give out so many perfect scores these days is proof enough, to me.

        nah, not Famitsu, just most Amazon Jp users giving it a 5, or at least a 4. I never care about Famitsu, especially w/ them giving everything perfect scores these days, FFXII and XIII weren’t bad but definitely not perfect either. Bayonetta was a fun action game though. But when they say everything is perfect, they lose credibility. The Kotaku squabble was pretty funny too..

        I usually just glance thru a wide range of user reviews and decide for myself, but I find the Amazon Jp review average to be a pretty good indication (not always true like NMH Paradise, people just rated it low because of the loading times, but it’s still a good game, that’s why I still need to read the review contents)

          Oh, okay. I was just making sure.
