Finally played The Evil Within...it was fun. Some of the bosses were frustrating, but I still liked it. Never have I played a horror game that swayed so wildly between "practically defenseless" and "one man army." I think I like the latter much better. Maybe not as scary, but more fun to me.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

I started playing Guacamelee 2 today and hey wait a minute. Did Guacamelee 1 really end with a complete re-enactment of SOTN's prologue?

Beat the first round game of Momodora Reverie under the Moonlight, a little bit revisit of Rosenkreuzstilette (Steam ver.) before backtracking to Lecarde Chronicles I with the latter two being some of my all time favorite titles.

Momodora RotM feels like way too long to play the whole game again just to get the extra achievement nonsense, nor do I ever have the mood to unlock them.

Purchased Evil Within 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I wasn't happy with the first Evil Within, but willing to give the second game a shot since I picked it up on holiday sale. I love the Tomb Raider reboot and about an hour in so far. Such a great series.

Downloaded a game called Chasm last night and played more of it today. I have to definitely recommend it to anyone here who's got that metroidvania itch they want to scratch.

I've been a jobless schmuck since mid-summer so I've beaten roughly 20 games in my freetime (which is all the time). The best two would have to be MGS3 and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, hooooly spit those are good games and it took me forever to get around to playing them. I'm conquering Super Paper Mario right now, but I'd better start looking for work because damn, it's kinda depressing playing video games all the time.

Metal Gear solid: The Twin snakes. The last time I played this title was back in 2008. Despite many on the internet are saying otherwise I feel that MGS: TS is the definitive version. Better graphics, stable 3D environment, more music variety for areas and bosses, improved voice-acting, and a more fleshed-out story. It's too bad that this version never made it onto the MGS HD collection as I was so looking forward to that.

I think Twin Snakes deserves its bad reputation. It's not a crummy remake but it's not as good as the original. One of the biggest downsides is its redone script, which doesn't flow as well as the original. (There's a good article about it here.) The music is too jammin' and doesn't have the ambient quality that makes the original so rich. The new cutscenes are fun, but they're too over-the-top even by MGS standards. First-person shooting totally breaks the original game design, especially the Ocelot fight. I feel like preference for the graphics is the most subjective matter; personally, I like the grittier look of the original, blocky textures and all.

There's a reason MGS4 uses screenshots from the PSX version during the flashbacks, because that's Kojima's original vision and clearly the one he prefers. Twin Snakes is a fascinating retelling of the story but it doesn't hold a candle to the original, IMO.

There's rumor that Bluepoint, the studio who remade Shadow of the Colossus, is working on a remake of MGS. I think that'll hold a lot more promise because it'll be more true to the original experience, judging by how closely SOTC resembles the original just with some optional control tweaks but with greatly enhanced graphics. My biggest worry is whether they'd use the PSX voice acting, Twin Snakes', or completely re-record everything. I hope they use the original dialogue and voice recordings, assuming it's been preserved in high quality. Otherwise, the thought of a third MGS translation is, uh, interesting. It wouldn't feel right if they didn't get the original cast back—again, for a third time.

MGS4 used the voice acting from Twin Snakes so I'll assume Bluepoint might use those. I had heard that the original voice acting wasn't recorded very well which is why in Twin Snakes it was redone. And that's the same reason why the originals weren't used in MGS4.

Was kinda worried about that. I could see the original recordings either not existing or being in bad shape or low quality. It's just a shame they used a new script though, uuuggghhh.

At least the original cast is all there, even if Mei Ling lost her charming accent.
