    Just finished mission 31. Still haven't discovered what is Free Roam for? Why should I use it?

    Free mode is basically for farming S rank soldiers (when you have high enough Heroism so they appear), and doing Side Ops. Most of the Side Ops are repetitive shit but AFAIK a certain amount of them are required to get the last mission.

    One of the funniest and dumbest thing happened. I'm in an FOB and the fucking guards see me through the walls from the floor above and shoot me through the fucking floor and kill me all indoors.

    Some of these side ops have the dumbest premises. How do these kids escape from mother base in the ocean near Madagascar and make it all the way to Afghanistan?

    these post-mission 30 missions where you do some of the same missions but harder have been quite good. They offer actual challenge like the subsistence missions where you start with no gear, buddies and can't call in supply drops or helicopter help. Downside is that the skulls mission is complete shit with increased health & teleporting and you have to watch all the same cutscenes twice.

    Eh looks like I've found the trick to getting frequent S ranks. Just go through the mission as quick as possible without enemies seeing you. It doesn't matter if you kill or don't kill the enemies, if enemies get alert or if you do the optical objectives.

    Just did a mission where skulls popped out of a truck. I got hit 18 times by the skulls and still got an S rank. I guess it doesn't matter how many times you were hit but rather not getting caught and how quickly you finish.

    How quickly you finish is all that matters.

    Should I go back to play metal gear solid? I found that reddit thread and got the game working on my computer or should I play MGS4? I have a PS3 and it was given for free in PS PLUS.

    Finished ground zeroes. Took me 53 minutes and got a B rank first try.

    It's a very large base and controls well but not quite as well as phantom pain. There's some stiffness like slower sprinting speed, and surprisingly you can't hide enemies in trash cans and you can in phantom pain.

    Holy shit I got a funny ass cutscene after rolling around in the beginning of the game.

    The map screen isn't quite as good as phantom pain but the level is pretty good but I don't see how it's better than phantom pain unless you thoroughly dislike the open world.

    Overall it's quite good. It's MGSV duh.

    People were probably playing it 50 times before the MGSV release, it got under their skin and that's why they can't shake the feeling that it's better than the whole game. It's not.

    In essence, it was the equivalent of one of the bases from phantom pain with a greater amount of buildings and slightly worse mechanics without any open world.

    I could understand someone preferring if phantom pain just cut out all the bases and made them into different stages, but it isn't a "better game" nor does it particularly have better level design.

    The serval rifle really trivializes skulls, goddamn.

    Also activating rain on using the Weather Control dazes the SKULL sniper chicks and makes them dance

    Just played through the main mission of Ground Zeroes. Pleasantly surprised by how difficult this was, for a glorified game instruction.
