Following a leak by The Taiwan Digital Sport Score Committee, GOG has confirmed that Metallic Gear, Metallic Gear Strong, Metallic Gear Strong 2: Substance, and a Konami assortment of basic Contra and Castlevania video games are now available via their store.
In fact, some followers will recall that Metallic Gear Strong and Metallic Gear Strong 2 did beforehand seem on PC. Primarily based on early impressions, evidently these variations of the video games uploaded to GOG are principally the identical PC ports that have been launched for the platform within the early 2000s. Whereas these editions have been up to date to simply run on trendy PCs, it doesn’t seem that they’ve been upgraded in another substantial methods.
It needs to be famous that the unique PC ports of those titles did function some minor alterations and content material updates (particularly Metallic Gear Strong 2: Substance, which featured fairly a bit of latest content material compared to its PS2 predecessor) however it’s a bit of disappointing that these ports are little extra than simply that. It’s good that we are able to simply play each video games on PC once more, however whether or not or not that straightforward luxurious is value $9.99 is actually debatable.
On that observe, it’s additionally considerably odd that the unique Metallic Gear is being delivered to GOG as a standalone title. It’s an…okay recreation, however asking trendy followers to pay $5.99 for the pleasure of experiencing it appears like a giant ask. For that matter, the Konami assortment can also be fairly weak on condition that separate Castlevania and Contra collections are presently accessible on PC. Granted, an analogous assortment was beforehand launched on PC years in the past, however once more, it simply appears like Konami might have put a bit of extra effort into this entire factor relatively than simply revive some 20 yr outdated PC ports and name it a day.
