On Steinway there's a shop called Entertainment Exchange. They specialize in used DVDs and games. They also sell used iPhones, cells and iPods in addition. Well, anyway, last Friday, I went in to browse since they usually have unbelievable bargains. I had grabbed a few discs and was on my way to the register when I saw it in the TV on DVD section. 25 cents. I couldn't believe it. I grabbed it. I even wrote about it on my blog:

You ever play the old Metal Gears there danno? There's something like an encyclopedia's worth of background.

Also - don't look at the absurdity of the cutscenes, look at the technical brilliance... It's kinda like Avatar that way.

No, but sneaking around, slapping dudes in sleeper holds, and busting caps in people is all I need. If I'm baffled by the soap operatics, I don't really care. On the off chance that it does bug me, I'll peruse Wikipedia for the basics.

The term "basics" should never be applied to anything related to plot of Metal Gear Solid. You're really doing yourself a disservice by not playing 1-3 first.

Grave of the Fireflies (2-Disc) at BB for $15. It was either this, "Transformers 2" Blu or "Star Trek" Blue (never seen any of them and only had enough to buy one this week) but I feel like I picked the correct door on the "Let's Make A Deal" final deal. :)

Got my Rossellini War Trilogy set on order from Criterion. I'm buying very (very) few DVDs these days, but had to make an exception for this. In my mind, it's one of the most important releases that has been - or will be - delivered to market in 2010. Cannot wait.
