    RIP Real Handheld Metal Gear games ;_;

      Why RIP? It’s only one game. How about this bring more money for further development. Real Handheld Metal Gear will come.

      while im not on board with this happening to MGS, any good done for the series is great to see imo

    • Someone seems to have forgotten about Metal Gear Solid Touch, which was released before Peace Walker and Snake Eater 3D. I think handheld Metal Gear games are fine.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        I don’t consider ports of console games to be “Real Handheld Metal Gear”.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      There have only been two “real” handheld Metal Gear games. Peace Walker and Portable Ops. The rest are either ports or stuff like this. In fact, the majority have been ports and stuff like this. The real ones are pretty rare, I’d say.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        There is a big difference in effort between these GREE games and stuff like Ghost Babel and Ac!d.

  • DCBlackbird

    i’ve been meaning to ask sorry if i sound dumb but how exactly are these social games played?

    • Rolling Guy

      It’s okay, everyone starts somewhere. There are those that have ‘energy’ to do stuff like story/quests/etc (the main game) and when this is depleted, you will have to wait some time for it to refill. In Japan, card games are pretty popular. This seems to be the case for the PVP mode in this game. The cards can be bought either by in game points (usually pretty hard to get) or real cash. The cards are like booster packs but are bought one by one. These are random cards with varying rarity. (Gacha machines, Google it) Better cards or limited editions are only bought via real cash. (Still at random)

    is the game only released in specific countries or specific os? because I already looked up at Play Store and can’t find it…

    • Rolling Guy

      It’s probably in the Japanese Marketplace. I’m on the iOS though.
