Let me know how it is going into it with minimal knowledge of the first. I bought #1 and loved what I played, but got distracted by numerous other new games at the time. I'd love to buy it to encourage them to release the first on 360, but I don't want to buy it and be totally lost.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is fucking awesome on the HD Collection. I tried it on the PSP but that controls sucked, but man, this is awesome.

Bah, my gaming backlog is getting big :/ (well, not a lot of games...but long games)

Currently playing a borrowed copy of Darksiders (almost done, I think).

Then I have the following:

-Skyrim (Theives, Dark Brotherhood, Daedra quests, rest of the achievements)

-Final Fantasy XIII-2

-Disgaea 4

Then I wanna borrow Persona 3/4, which as RPGs, will take a million hours >_<

I have found it hard to get into, because it is done so differently. But it is a really good game. I have to finish it at some point, and then go online with it.

I would have more, I just tend to trade a lot of mine in rather than have them end up sitting in my drawers collecting dust.

Just started Skyrim again, first game I've ever played as a mage. It's pretty fun. I want to get away from destruction magic but it's hard, it's such an easy reflex to rely on.

I was playing Skyrim at a friends yesterday for the first time myself. I was debating between the Imperial and the Orc since I had intended to be a melee fighter and the Orc seemed to favour that but the Imperial had some merchant benefits. Went with the Imperial.

Turns out I just used magic most of the time anyway because the combat was pretty loose. Demon's/Dark Souls has spoiled me with it's combat system.

And in terms of back logs...ooh boy. Mine is pretty substanial.

I tried to play Snake Eater the other day for the first time in years and man, I found the way gunplay is handled to be so archaic. I mean, MGS has always been a bit... different with how it handled the third person shooter mechanics, but it feels so weird after playing games like Mass Effect and Uncharted. I'm really enjoying Peace Walker though, the amount of RPG elements is great. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the two weapon limit for each mission. I guess how it's spaced out helps because you can pick the right weapon for each mission, but two just doesn't feel like enough. I'd also like some more customization on the weapons, I don't know if I can pick up Silencers for the rest of them, but unless I can I get the feeling I'll be using one weapon for most of the game outside of boss fights.

Speaking of boss fights, the first one with the Tank was pretty awesome. I had just under enough ammo to take care of it, but found some laying around. A lot of fun and whilst challenging in finding the right place to hide, when to fire... it never got anywhere near being annoying. Reminded me a lot of the tank fight in MGS1 too.

Conjuration magic is great with Bound Swords/Bows and Flame Attronarchs.

Man just talking about this makes me want to play Skyrim again.

I pretty much agree with all of that, I did find MGS 2+3 alot easier than I used to. And that first tank battle? I just love the weird music. >_>

Yeah I found 2+3 a lot easier as well. I think its an age thing to be honest. I found myself able to think much more methodically about what I was supposed to be doing where on the PS2 I just rushed headlong in without planning.

It's the same thing with how I play the PS1 Final Fantasys now too.

I actually lost a little interest in playing Snake Eater once I got a shotgun and it controlled horribly, which is a shame because I really did love that game.
