Re: MGS4 Japan Launch Reflections, Attacking Monsters!

You may recall that my dad, who recently turned 70, was drawn back to gaming after watching me play Grand Theft Auto IV. At the time he expressed some interest in picking up a Playstation 3 because he "had already tried the Xbox." This morning he did just that.

Not only did he buy the Metal Gear Solid 4 Playstation 3 bundle, but he actually stood in line for it. I kid you not. He was the only one standing in line at the Moultire, Georgia GameStop, but he at least he did it.

While it was great to hear that he's jumped back into modern day gaming, I had forgotten the inevitable sea of questions he was going to hit me up with once he got plugged in. We spent five minutes alone trouble-shooting his controller over the phone before we realized the thing I had turned off automatically. Gah!
