(continued from previous page) ...can fight with him in battle like normal, as expected, in whatever manner you wish, ranging from a full-on sniper fight to a more covert option of sneaking up on him at every turn. You can also shoot him immediately after the cutscene following the boss fight with The Pain where Ocelot performs the juggling Russian Roulette on Sokolov. The third option is to let The End die of old age. After the fight is initiated, save your game and turn it off. Then, set your console clock forward a week and load up your save file. You will find that The End has truly ended and the easiest boss fight ever has taken place.
7. All the better to be Big Boss with
Speaking of manipulating the console clock, players can use this same function to help get around the hardest earnable emblem in MGS4. After each area, especially during the bike sequence, save the game and go back to the Cross Media Bar and move forward the clock two days on your console. Once you load up the game, Old Snake will be fully healed, done by natural regeneration and it won’t count as a healing item.
8. The strangest things happen on stage
To get a Trophy in the freshly-patched MGS4 title, you have to strike a pose with a couple sculpted stiffs. This will take place immediately in the second area of the game, where Snake will reach for the next statue’s manhood. Do this three times, and Snake will get a “souvenir.” Also, during the escort mission in Europe during act three, you can also have Snake pose as another statue in the park; if you get there before the agent does, you may or may not get peed on.
9. Death by ketchup
After getting caught in MGS1, live through the torture sessions until Otacon comes for a visit. He’ll provide Snake with a ration and some ketchup to help keep it down. Instead of actually eating the ketchup, lie down in the jail cell and use the ketchup to create a fructose-heavy puddle of blood. The patrolling guard will walk by, freak out, and open the door to investigate. Upon his entry, stand up and beat the hell out of him to escape.
