Snake is back! The new installment from the mind of Hideo Kojima, japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. Watch the extra long trailer here.
When the ps3 first arrived on the scene in '06 and MGS4 on Jun '08 the makers of MGS wished they had more storage room than the "mere" 50GB that was available at the time in order to make the game live up to its true potential.. Now, fast forward 6 years, add extra layers on a BluRay disk and a pinch of more advanced software and graphic design... And behold!
It just looks amazing, graphically a masterpiece. No news yet on a release date other than the "Coming Soon" though..
More about MGS for those poor uninformed souls:
The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity - the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society with the entire series carrying a strong "anti-nuke" message.
