Do Mefites play Metal Gear Online?

If so, we could play in the weekend Survival tournaments. I'm not terribly good, but I've gotten so that I don't weigh down teams I join in the auto-matching Big Boss channel.
yes I checked the wiki; there's nothing there and I figured this is a better way to get people's attention.

There are Mefites who play EVERYTHING. (Not specific people who play everything, but if there's a game, there are at least a few MFers who've played it) There's a MetaFilter-Associated Russian Roulette group that meets online, but it's numbers are shrinking (for obvious reasons). And a lot of members lost enthusiasm when one of them who'd taken a bullet was found playing Scrabulous the next day.

Are the survival tournaments really worth the cost of the expansion pack?

The expansion pack also comes with a bunch of new levels, including the Peruvian power plant stage, and a confusing sewer level.

From my limited experience with the survival mode, it seems to be a lot more serious and intense than the ordinary games, even for players of similar level. Whether that makes it worthwhile is of course a personal question.

There's a good sized group of us that are into gaming. You might try asking at http://mefightclub.com/. The MefightClub group got setup almost a year ago mainly centered around Team Fortress 2, but there are other games that are discussed. Come on over!

Oh, fantastic, thanks for the tip. Right now the terms of service are a PHP error, but I read them and agree strenuously, so I checked the box.

My dude is called Crotalus. If you see him, shoot him in the head for me.

After getting Battlefield: Bad Company, I'm pretty much done with MGO.

Sniping is a lot more fun in an area larger than a basketball court.

If you think you like MGO, and don't usually play FPS type games, you should seriously consider BF:BC (get the gold edition for the extra guns, else you've got to level all the way up to get them, wish I had known that). Kojima should stick to the twisted conspiracy theories. He's no good at building multiplayer games.
