Original Thread: Big Boss and Master Miller's Spanglish Vacation - MGS: Peace Walker [VLP]



Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is the next installment of Big Boss' story arc. Originally made as a portable game for the PSP, it was ported to the PS3 and 360 in a HD re-release along with MGS2 and MGS3. Peace Walker is a departure from the normal games, as it was restructured to lend itself to being a portable game.

Peace Walker takes place 10 years after Metal Gear Solid 3. It is a kidnapping simulator where you strap balloons onto unconscious men. It is also about Big Boss and Master Miller flipping some crappy real estate in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and turning it into the world's greatest club for men.

Peace Walker is a nearly full co-op game, a first for the series. Because of this, I wanted to LP the game co-op. However, General Ironicus does not own a PS3 or this game, and buying all of that to do an LP is kind of silly! So instead, my good friend Snarkcookie will be joining me for this let's play. She's been around in many videos before, mainly the Uncharted 2 and MGS4 multiplayer videos. Let's try not to complain about change!

List of Metal Gear LPs in series chronology:
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - Current LP
Metal Gear 1 & 2
Metal Gear Solid 1
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

1) Please, do not spoil shit. Not just the plot of the game, but the crazy easter eggs, product tie-ins, and crazy late-game unlockable missions. Half of the fun is seeing the crazy shit happen without knowing anything about it.
2) Let's try not to cry about Ironicus not being in the LP. He'll be here for the side content videos that will start later on.

What aren't you LPing Portable Ops first?
I don't really like Portable Ops that much. I don't think it's very fun. Thankfully, the plot to the game has virtually no impact on anything else. There is a link to an LP of it above, if you're curious about it.
