: : Action : Adventure : Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

[edit] Background

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is the final entry in Konami's tactical espionage series for the PSP, and the sequel to 2004's Snake Eater. Players take the role of of the legendary soldier Big Boss in the 1970's, where he leads a band of mercenaries stationed in Columbia, South America. Big Boss is called to action in Costa Rica, where a mysterious armed force is threatening the peace in a country that has remained neutral following the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Peace Walker revolves around infiltration missions, divided into those which must be played in a set order for the purposes of the game's plot, and optional missions with more challenging objectives. As in previous titles, players are rewarded for prioritizing stealth and non-violence during missions. Unlike previous Metal Gear titles, players can choose to undertake certain missions as a soldier under Big Boss' command instead. Peace Walker includes Co-Op and competitive multiplayer modes.

The title also features a simulation mode in the form of building and maintaining the Mother Base, an abandoned OTEC research platform re-purposed by Big Boss to serve as his army's headquarters. Players recruit and manage the morale and well-being of up to 350 soldiers and staff members. Enemy vehicles can also be captured and brought back to the Mother Base, and new weapons and items for use in missions can be researched and produced on-site. Recruited soldiers and captured vehicles can be used in special "Outer Ops" missions against CPU opponents, where success will increase their stats as well as generate income for the Mother Base.

Following on the last blog, I won't talk about my assignment. I have so much to work on as a result of receiving marks back. Well, I will detail what the next assignments (3 and 4) are about.

One is a report on the advances Information Technology in a particular industry. I have chosen the Health Industry and acquired lots of information, which I hope will lead me to success.

The other is more of a budgeting scheme for an IT business, which I find extremely boring and tedious. Coincidentally it's due sooner than the other (which I have already finished) so I should really be attempting it quite soon!

As of recent my efforts to find a job have continually fallen short. The search continues and I'm feeling increasingly more anxious as well as pessimistic about it all. On the top side I stand to make $115 this weekend from refereeing, however, I just feel as a more permanent and non seasonal solution is required!

Anticipation for games hasn't changed much, I'm still excited about Red Dead Redemption (perhaps a little less now), Peace Walker and Portable 3rd. Monster Hunter Tri is out, so I am looking at that, however not having a Wii does little to boost my spirits. Only recently remembered the game "The Last Guardian" coming out for PS3. I LOVED Shadow of The Colossus and and hotly anticipating The Last Guardian. The entire series has me in awe, and such a game is TOO GOOD to pass up!

Now, I must be off. I feel I should really take a good look into planning my assignment. Hope everyone is safe and enjoying themselves as well as this blog post.
