Did You Know?


The Boss's gun, "The Patriot," is based on a gun later to be invented, the Olympic Arms 93(OA-93), an assault pistol firing 5.56x45mm rifle rounds in a small pistol size. It is fitted with another future device: the Beta-C magazine which is a dual-drum magazine holding 100 rounds (infinite ammo in the game because it is shaped like an infinity symbol). It even lacks a front sight and has no stock with the bolt spring housing sticking out instead (the long black tube behind the handle). Its rate of fire is a little too slow but its recoil is well depicted as low (the 100 round mag adds some heft, especially when it never runs out of ammo). See more »

Greatest game ever
30 December 2006 | by gabzstorey07See all my reviews

I recently got subsistence as a Christmas present and i just had to comment on how good this game is!! a long time ago i played metal gear solid 1 and it changed my life, and the way i view films or games. it was amazing and when MGS 2 came out it was also very good but didn't leave me feeling quite as astounded with its extremely complex story and half the game you had too play with a certain raiden guy. But i hadnt played Snake eater then and it really did live up to my expectations, fantastic gameplay great graphics and gripping storyline. i was right until the end i looked back and thought what a bloody good game and then headed onto the online game which is also fantastic.any1 out there who hasn't played it go to the shop right now! especially if you haven't played the original mgs 3
