Metal Gear Solid V - The Story So Far

Impressions of MGS:  V continue to improve.  The stealth mechanics are very nicely done so as to remain challenging while lacking detection indicators.  And the management elements are a little clumsy and dense, but I've seen worse.

But the writing.  It's weird, crazy, dark and wacky at the same time.  And I love it.  It's as if Hideo Kojima decided to re-write Apocalypse Now (one of the best movies ever made) from the perspective of Dennis Hopper's lunatic photographer.  And it works.  It's a pleasant dissonance to hear Kids of America blaring out of a tape deck owned by a hardened Soviet commando in the middle of Afghanistan.

More to follow.
