  1. Yea… no.

    Just no. This is not the direction MGS should be going in and it’s obvious that they have gone with the “Eff you, give us money” approah instead of trying to fix any online bugs and not forcing the MP to intergrate with the SP as they flat out steal resources by reserving them online. Oh and god help you if you spent hours and hours storing a lot of vehicles as you now only have a big fat 3.

    Screw Konami! They ruined the ending to MGS V! No, i’m not letting go of that as i regret buying MGS V at that time.
