METAL GEAR SOLID RISING: REVENGENCE
This. Is. The. Best. Videogame.
I haven't checked in with the Metal Gear universe since the MGS demo back on the first playstation, so all this incomprehensible military-wank-insanity is new and fresh to me.
I'm not used to rescuing wise-cracking orphans from being turned into cyborgs, I'm not used to an on screen display telling me exactly how many pieces I just cut this hatchback into, I'm not used to having a primary antagonist named "Jetstream Sam", and so on.
Feels like it would get too much after a while, but I only managed to stop playing for about 15 minutes tonight.
Felt strong as shit at the gym last night, but realised halfway through the workout I was only using a 15kg bar. I had no idea they existed and it was pretty upsetting to find out.
Managed a 5 x 100kg deadlift, which made me feel a lot better despite the urge to brutally vomit onto the mirror in front of me.
Also snuck in an extremely suspect 60kg squat as well. I've never tried for 1RM numbers before so its a PR despite being the bodyweight performance standard for an "Untrained" lifter. So basically after months of work I have clawed my way up to the level that comes before "Novice".
