Anyone played the game yet???

I will not spoil here... only mentioning some nice MSX-related things I saw in MGS4!

Please no spoilers in this topic cause I did not finish the game yet! Tongue

Did someone noticed the nice medley in the IPod you have in the game! It's a mix of Metal Gear and Metal Gear: Solid Snake music... very nice!

You can also find music for your IPod in the game. Just found 'Theme of Tara' you al know as the Metal Gear theme. It's decription of this song is also new to me: Hideo Kojima refered the melody of this song to Ta-Ra!

And there is a level where you have to follow a member of the resistance! You, as Snake, are dressed as a look-a-like Gilian Seed!

What do you think?

Yep, it seems there are several references to MSX in the game: http://es.msx.org/forumtopicl8643.html

This music was reused in MGS games a number of times, so it's a reference to reference.

@Arjan: very nice and very interesting also!

@Latok: Which mention do you mean of PA in MGS4? B.t.w. I never knew that Kojima was the producer of Penguin Adventure! So that explains the mention!!

In one brief, there is some scenes from MG and MG:S.
You can find musics from MG and MG:S for the iPod. I wish there is something like in the Metal Gear Solid 2 for PS2. Did someone noticed that the computers where you upload the photos to Otacom is running a certain MSX OS????
