The idea of the pre-order has always been a sore point for me ever since I pre-ordered Colonial Marines. I toddled to the store and threw down my hard earned money on a game that my only encounter with was on a stage at E3, with brilliant lighting effects, competent AI and a real horror atmosphere. My younger mind was blown away by such a fantastic looking game and being a major fan of the franchise, I believed that it was an easy buy.
Everyone I know today is rejoicing, or holding their breath in anticipation for their next payday, for at midnight last night Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain got released. Well lets call it what it is, HIDEO KOJIMA presents Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, after all seems only fair that credit is given where credit is due.
