Konami warns of save-corrupting Metal Gear Solid V bug

Quiet

I’ve been lost in Metal Gear Solid V, soaking up the sights, sounds and cavernous valleys of a digital Afghanistan (Nope, nowhere near Africa) – and it’s a genuinely polished, incredible game. I think the things that’s sucking me in most is how you’re free to tackle just about everything in whatever manner you see fit. Well, mostly.

There’s a game breaking save bug n the game, which you can easily avoid – just as long as you don’t play the game in whatever manner you see fit. It’s all got to do with Quiet, the scantily clad sniper you’re able to recruit as a buddy to help you take pot-shots at Russian soldiers in the Central Asian Desert. Many people taken issue with Quiet and her lack of clothing, but it seems the game itself has issues with her.

According to Konami, there’s a great big, save-breaking bug that can happen if you use her as your frontline buddy in missions 29 or 42. And that’s it. All you need to do to avoid having your save wiped (something that would honestly make me cry right now) is not use the big-breasted, scantily-clad, mute sniper on two missions; consider taking a furrier chum along instead.

Are you playing Metal Gear Solid V? What are your thoughts on the game itself, Quiet’s ensemble (or lack thereof) and the resultant brouhaha? I have to say, I’m not a fan of Quiet’s getup. I’ve been told it all gets explained, apparently, but it all seems culturally tone deaf…though perhaps that’s the point. I don;t take umbrage because she’s nearly naked – more that within the context of the game, it seems to make no sense; who’d wander the Afhgan desert dressed in nothing? I hope she has sunscreen with an SPF of 60.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
