I still haven't made much progress, but I do really enjoy the cassette tapes over codec conversations. Since it's Metal Gear, there's obviously going to be a three minute conversation about the origin of a code name, but now I can listen to that while scoping out a base. The only frustrating thing there is that it doesn't pause tapes while other dialog is triggered.
I mostly enjoyed the opening sequence (it could have easily been half as long), but when it drops you into that first open area is when I got really excited. I was super disappointed that I had to go to work soon after that.
I ran out of breath laughing at those bracelets. I thought it couldn't get any better than "I BOOM BOOM" followed by "I RAPE 24 HR." but man, that was the gift that keeps on giving. Speaking of gifts and giving, those soaps are going on the ol' Amazon wishlist, if you know what I mean.
