NY Comic Con 2008: Metal Gear Online Hands-On Video

This past weekend, I headed out to the New York Comic Con to see all of that latest and greatest in the Comic Book community. To my surprise, Komani was there showing off Metal Gear Online. Not only did I have to play it, but I made sure I got footage of myself completely sucking at… er.. I mean pwning the enemy! We all know that folks who play video games for a living must be good at all of them…right?!

I must say that I was completely surprised at how well the game handled. It stayed true to how Metal Gear Solid feels, while finally adding a multiplayer component to it. The game was setup as a local 4v4 LAN match. As you’ll see in the video above, this was the first time I ever played MGO, so I didn’t quite have a grasp on what the controls were yet. I did like how you can change weapons or accessories by simply press the R2/L2 buttons instead of having to hold it down in order to select what you want to use (even though I can’t recall at the moment if that was something previous Metal Gear Solid games did).

Playing Metal Gear Online was fun for the short time I got to try it out. Thanks to this hands-on impression, not only am I looking forward to MGS4, but I’ll also probably be checking out MGO whenever I have the chance.

I’d just like to note this is the first video I ever put together, so I apologize if it isn’t as flashy as some videos are, but I think I did a damn good job for my first ever video :mrgreen:

Thx for the vid, can’t wait to log in on friday and play it myself.

BTW I do believe that MGO will be apart of MGS4 so it won’t be a separate game. I think it was supposed to be a separate title initially but somewhere along the line they decided to just include it with MGS4.
