[Giveaway] Metal Gear Solid Food – Calorie Mate Block

In my recent trip to Japan while waiting for a train I noticed a Calorie Mate at a small stand. So I had to try it and it was pretty good. So I picked up 2 chocolate Calorie Mates & 1 orange Calorie Mate to giveaway on PS3Blog.net! If you didn’t know the Calorie Mate first made a appearance in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Even Jack Bauer from 24 likes it. If you would like to see what a Calorie Mate contains, click the photo to the left that I took of the front of the package. The orange flavor has all the same stuff in it. But also has orange peal, cheese & maple syrup. Sounds odd I know, but they are tasty. Inside are 4 pieces which are similar to a soft biscuit.

 

To get 2 bonus entries into this giveaway, complete the question on this form.

If your feeling photogenic and want 3 MORE bonus entires. Post a comment on below with a photo or video of you hiding in a box or being stealthy MGS style.

E3 2012 Hands-On Demo: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Imagine living in a world where cyborgs rule and various military groups have employed these cyborgs as their personal bodyguards. Fortunately for us, that world is contained in Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising. I was very skeptical at first, however, it took me less than 5 minutes to be submerged and fully embrace the world of Metal Gear Rising.

The Demonstration

The game starts off in a courtyard where a person with a German accent is explaining the controls. Targets raise up off the ground, revealing at first, standalone silhouettes. The second batch of targets are a little more challenging, as they appear to be holding hostages. This is where the fun begins. You hold down the L1 button and the game goes into a slow motion, Max Payne bullet time-style mode. With the right analog stick, you guide the “cut line” (indicated by a orange glow) where to cut, then you simply flick the right analog to that direction, and there you have it!

As the demo progresses, you work your way up the chain, so to speak, by fighting cyborg soldiers one at a time, and sometimes even two at a time. Later on, a Gekko shows up meaning to ruin your day, but you make short work of it by grabbing its tentacle and spinning it around like a stringed Yo-Yo. That’s the way I disposed of it, however there are hundreds of other ways. “Ninja Run” was demonstrated, where you simply hold down a button and you can dash on and around cars, over walls, evade attacks, and “rocket jump”.
