I bought Metal Gear Solid 4 last Thursday night and ended up finishing it around 4AM (6AM if you count the hours of footage after the final boss) on Saturday morning. I just could not put it down and was drawn into it. Without checking the stats, I ended up with around 20 hours? of game time. Remember this includes watching the 8+ hours? of just movie footage. Hours of footage could totally be wrong as I just threw this out there, never counted or checked anywhere online.
Now I have never played the MGS series before, I have known about it and seen my brother play some levels here and there on some of the previous installments but just never got into it. I wasnâ€™t much a PS/console gamer back than either.
If there was a possible score higher than a 10/10, this game would get it. I have never played such a game where not only am I drawn into the game but everything they did to make the game, gameplay or actual movie footage and so much more. I have just never experience what I have experienced in this game before. Iâ€™m no way comparing GTA4 to MGS4 but I do not think after playing this that GTA4 really deserves a 10/10 at all.
My brother keeps telling me to try some previous games of the series. I doubt Iâ€™ll do it, there are too many other games to play, those that I have not finished yet, have yet to play or have not come out yet. Plus, I love how MGS4 is, I doubt Iâ€™d dislike how the game is in the previous title or two but Iâ€™m not sure if Iâ€™d have a lot of fun (but I doubt it, I probably would still) because I love the little things that I donâ€™t think previous installments have like how you can just buy weapons and customizations on the fly and everything else.
Anyways, In conclusion, this game exceeds 10/10 (if were possible). Now as any game out there, it has its flaws so itâ€™s not absolutely perfect. But I still think it would deserve a score of 10/10 or higher if that were possible. Rarely do I ever find a game like this. Though I didnâ€™t know the entire backstory behind MGS, only knew a little going into it. In the end I understood a lot, maybe not everything but I think you can definitely just jump in this game without playing previous. It helps you out, they could of done a LOT better with the story line, explaining it to you, cutting down the movies so they are not so long but itâ€™s alright in the end. I also learned more by searching the net and/or using wikipedia.
I would not consider it awesome enough to resort to going out and buying a PS3 just to play this game unless you have other games you plan on playing on the PS3. Which are not many at all, still better off with an Xbox 360. Yet, this game is definitely worth having a look at if you do own a PS3. Yes, you may have to update your PS3â€™s firmware before you can play the game. You will have to install a few files before you can start playing the game (took like 8 minutes to start with) and then every so often, little installs of a few minutes or less will take place. I am not going to say it was fine and not annoying but itâ€™s also was not a problem to me to walk away for a minute, you will probably not like being taken from the gameplay to watch movies that most of the time, last around 15 minutes or even longer as you get into the game. You will not want to skip them though unless your on your second or more play through. Itâ€™s still a good game to buy or at least, rent. Definitely beatable in most rental time periods if you have the time or get GameFly.

So I saw The Incredible Hulk that just came out. It was pretty good, definitely better than The Hulk they made a few years ago and Edward Norton is just an outstanding actor. It was NOT better than Iron Man, then again I did NOT expect it to be because Iron Man is just so much cooler. The ending, is even better, I will not spoil it for you, but the ending scene I thought was extremely badass. You’ll see if you decide to watch it. Like I said, pretty good movie, they did a great job on it. I liked it and recommend seeing it.

So this movie stars Anton Yelchin as Charlie Bartlett along with Robert Downey Jr. playing the Principal and his hot and sexy daughter played by Kat Dennings. Great movie. The guy who plays Charlie, I’d love to see in more movies, I looked him on up IMDB, don’t recall any of the movies he has been in but he has been in more TV shows, never saw him in them either. Robert Downey Jr. plays great I think at least but then again, I like him as an actor, he was perfect for Iron Man and did great there too. Then you have Kat Dennings, with the few movies I’ve seen her in, she’s been outstanding and so sexy (The 40 Year Old Virgin).
Charlie ends up getting kicked out of another private school, this time for creating fake driver’s licenses. His mother decides to have him live at him and try going to a public school. He’s not a kid that fits in easily, so he decides to come up with a plan for everyone to like him and so forth the story goes on. I highly recommend watching this movie, I think most people will enjoy it. I had a lot of laughs in this one, it’s not solely based around a comedy but it is one along with drama. So get it and see it!
Seriously? Stay away from this movie. I’m a HUGE Mark Wahlberg fan, been looking forward to this movie for a while now. After this movie, I don’t know why Mark picked to be in it, I thought he only picked scripts he liked, especially loving basically every single movie of his prior to this one. I have no way at all lost hope in Mark and future movies but this one was bad.
Now I heard a few bad comments on this movie prior to seeing it, I still would of saw it if I heard even more because I would of still saw this movie because of Mark Wahlberg. I was also still interested in seeing it because Signs and The Village by M. Night Shyamalan were not that bad of movies either.

I highly recommend getting this movie when it comes out on DVD, which is July 29th. I enjoyed it a lot and I don’t normally ‘favoritize’ movies since I love a lot of them but this is one of them already. There are also very few movies in the say last 10 years that I normally never watch twice, this is one I see myself watching many more times when it’s released on DVD.
