New details pertaining to the next installment of the Metal Gear Solid saga have recently been revealed. Peace Walker will introduce several firsts, not just to the series, but gaming as a whole; in addition to overseeing a home base, which involves recruiting and managing support staff, the player will face off against various AI controlled weapons that will try to dominate the player both on the ground and above it.
