Metal Gear Arcade

So you've played Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (one of my all-time favorites) on PS2 and you've played MGS IV on the PS3. Maybe you've even played MGS: Peace Walker on the PSP (I haven't). But now Solid Snake is back in the Arcades (in Japan anyway) in Metal Gear Arcade!

I'm late to the party again as this has been kicking around on the internet for about a year but I just heard about it yesterday as I was perusing Arcade Heroes' blog about the latest location test for the game.

It is basically the MGS IV online gameplay ported to a networked arcade game with a force feedback gun and the coolest part - a set of glasses that allow you to see the game in 3D and also track your head movements to really immerse you in the game. That's pretty cool! Of course, you'll have to buy a ticket to Tokyo to play it, so you'll have to decide for yourself if that is worth it or not.

If it was true MGS action, it would involve a lot of lying on the ground or hiding in the bushes.

I never tried MGSIV online. You?

Yeah I wondered if it had a stealth component too - maybe not.
Nope - I never even tried MGSIV Online. But if a little pair of cardboard 3D goggles came with it I would have given it a shot.
