On the subject of Metal Gear has anyone managed to finish Peace Walker? I had to give up on the final boss fight as it's destroying me, not helped by the lack of checkpoints or difficulty settings.

Are you researching new weapons and utilising supply drops? Got the battle suit?
I loved Peace Walker and finished it on my PSP solo, even the bastard hard Monster Hunter missions. I assume you're playing on a console?

Yeah, I was expecting it to just be a little ten minute thing like in most games, but it took me all my gaming time for tonight.
I think the strongest point about this game is how many possible ways there are to tackle even simple things. I saw three very different ways into the Police Station, and even those three had a couple of variations.

I'm trying a pacifist run in DEHR at the moment. Although I am still leaving plenty of room for acting like a dick. For example- talking someone into letting me past, then once behind them choking them unconscious and stuffing them into an air vent. It's a good way to rack up a lot of XP actually.

I finally gave Echo Bazaar a punt and for a browser game it's surprisingly deep.

Also managed to get DayZ mod for ARMA2 working. Hoping to get together with a buddy and play it tonight. I'm not expecting to last very long, between the zombies and the other players.

@Gundam: Christ. Just had a quick look at the trophy requirements for MGS2, you have to finish it 5 times (very easy, easy, normal, hard, extreme) and get all dog tags on every playthrough. That's madness. My memory of the game is that it isn't that short at all...

Yeah, each difficulty setting has different tags. The entire tanker section can be done quite easily, because you can just skip the cutscenes and you get into a routine.
It's the bastard Plant section that's the challenge.

I'm not sure it's really worth the effort, to be honest. Like I said before, getting all those tags on Extreme would be incredibly hard, when you factor in having to fight all the RAYs and Vamp and so on too.

True true. Are achievements/trophies ever worth it? It at least adds a reason to replay and some challenge down the line.

Some of them I'll do, it depends. I don't really care how big my e-penis is, really. I've got just over 17,000G on my Xbox and it doesn't really mean anything.
I'll do achievements where I can, but I don't go out of my way to do them especially.

Decade-long Civilization II game crumbles into dystopian nightmare.

Hell of a game (in oh so many ways . . .).

Read about that a while ago. It made me feel better about the mere 50 hours of Civ 5 and about 300 hours of Civ 4 I racked up.

I wonder how many hours of Animal Crossing: Wild World I've played? I've had the same game for over six years.

It's interesting what people do in certain games. It reminds me a bit of that guy who built the "perfect city" in SimCity, albeit one that's depressing and unhealthy to live in.

I'm sure Kei will trump this, but I'm currently up to 102 days on my main character (that's after 8(?) years of playing).
