This is a pretty good deal. Also happy it's not the Twin Snakes version.

Buying MGS1 right now - thanks for letting us know about this Will!

CladInShadows (on 25 September 2020)

I'm not saying it won't happen, but I wouldn't hold my breath for a steam release. These are essentially the original PC ports from the early 2000s made to work on modern systems. That's more GOG's wheelhouse, and they probably actually did a good chunk of the work to get it working, with Konami's permission.

Zkuq (on 25 September 2020)

Might be timed exclusives though, possibly because of the work done by GOG. I haven't done any research to back up my claim, but I think I've been noticing that old games that get release on GOG often get released on Steam as well, usually after some delay.

Not bad. Honestly I expected a lot worse from Konami.

I wasn't expect to spend any money on Metal Gear any time soon, but it turns out I might...

Signalstar (on 25 September 2020)

It's pretty funny that Konami is still lying about the plot synopsis of MGS 2 after all these years.

Zkuq (on 25 September 2020)

There's no lie, some things just have been left out in a fairly misleading fashion. As for why it's still the same synopsis, well, this looks like a really low-effort cash grab, so why bother changing the texts either, right?
