Metal Gear Solid Risk Board + HD Collection

 

The Metal Gear franchise is one that I will always have a weird feeling about, Metal Gear on the MSX was one of the first games I remember playing, I didn’t actually complete it until a year or so ago though. I’ve never played any of the other Metal Gear games though despite owning/having borrowed them on multiple occasions.

Anyway, I like risk, I like classic risk and I also like the new fangled Risk 2210 and Risk Godstorm games, so there is no reason I won’t like this game. It looks interesting and has artwork by Yoji Shinkawa the art director of the Metal Gear Solid Series.

 

On another note, I just found out that Konami are releasing a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on the XBOX 360 and PS3. Oddly it only contains MGS 2, MGS 3 and Peace Walker (The PSP game that is supposed to be Metal Gear Solid 5) Why not include the original Metal Gear Solid? Some of us haven’t played that yet!

 

 

On the plus side it does contain the original MSX games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. I might play thought MGS on the Playstation and then get this so I can play the others and maybe finally get round to playing Metal Gear Solid 4 which has been sitting on my shelf for 2 and a bit years…

The HD collection is available to pre-order on Amazon, dunno about Risk… Oddly though the links below look like two PS3 links the first should take you to the XBOX 360 one…

  1. “I’ve never played any of the other Metal Gear games though despite owning/having borrowed them on multiple occasions.”

    I know…

  2. I’m sorry… Do you want them back? I have completed Metal Gear… Just need to work my way through Metal Gear 2 and the Solid franchise.

  3. The reason the MGS isn’t included is that it was a launch title for the PS1 games on PS3 and PSP. The collection was original PS3 exclusive. No point cannibalising sales.

    I believe the Japanese version of the collection does include a voucher for MGS though.

  4. That makes sense, I have (I think) Gavin’s copy of MGS in front of me at the moment. I think Annabel has her own copy somewhere too…

    Gavin was your’s a Platinum collection one from Electronics Boutique?

    Any idea what the average playtime for MGS is? I might play it next weekend…
