Just a little update… I’ve made myself a Twitter account so if you wanna follow my Hardcore Casual Gaming mind a little more, just keep tabs on my Tweets on the site, or follow me if you’re a Tweeter yourself. Heheh. I’ll also be posting updates on the Tekken 6 manga there as well. Later then!

iPhone MGS Confirmed!

Posted in Action Adventure, Game-related Events, Gaming, Metal Gear Solid 4 on December 17th, 2008 by thelonegamer

As we reported earlier, Metal Gear Solid Touch is… well… it’s REAL! Metal Gear Solid Touch! We got the name right! Haha! This upcoming title for the iPhone or iPod Touch has been confirmed by Konami (perhaps hastened by the scan leaks from Famitsu).

Set in the MGS4 universe, the game will have 8 stages initially, with more promised to come later (downloads?). Kotaku mentions in their article that the game will be controlled by touchpad and not by accelerometer- well, the iPhone/Touch doesn’t have a touchpad. Most probably as with games like the recent Brothers In Arms iPhone game, players will manipulate action through the touchscreen itself. As seen in the two screenshots, you’ll be controlling Old Snake himself, in some 3rd Person Over-the-Shoulder shooting action as well as a first-person sniping view. Check out pics here.

Not known yet is the story. Will this be set during MGS4? After? Will we see any familiar characters or adversaries like the Beasts/Beauties? Is it Canon?

Well, as an iPod Touch owner, I’m pretty thrilled. Can’t wait to see this… but I guess I’m going to have to. The game is set for a Spring 2009 release.

Metal Gear Solid TOUCH?

Posted in Action Adventure, Game-related Events, Gaming, Metal Gear Solid 4, My Stuff on December 17th, 2008 by thelonegamer

UPDATE: It’s confirmed. Metal Gear Solid Touch. Imagine that.

Kotaku just posted an intriguing article. Hideo Kojima and Konami have been hinting at a new Metal Gear Solid game recently, and it seems that Famitsu Weekly in Japan has blown the lid off this secret. Metal Gear Solid… on the iPhone/iPod Touch??? The only evidence so far is a low-res scan of the mag, not really worth seeing. But man… this could be pretty cool. I own a Touch, and while it’s not a PSP, the games that exist on it are entertaining and great time-killers. An MGS game would be wonderful!

But you know, what I’d really want on the Touch would be a really good fighter. Tekken Touch? Streetfighter Touch? That would be great. Who knows what the future can bring, anyway… more on this as we get it.
