Official MGS4 Strategy Guide Author gives Top 12 Tips!

50°
330w ago - James Price, part of the team at Piggyback finishing up 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: The Complete Official Guide' has given his top 12 tips for the game.

1. Life Gauge

Keeping the Life Gauge topped up is vital, but it's just as important not to panic and keep filling the gauge unnecessarily with precious items. Though you can replenish it with healing objects such as Rations and Noodles, you should take care not to waste them - especially on higher difficulty levels. Using a Ration when Snake's Life Gauge is 80% full, for example, is plain foolish. You usually don't need to even think about refilling the gauge until it drops below 25%. During boss fights or difficult skirmishes, you should instead equip Rations, Noodles or Regain and position them as an "active" item. Once Snake's health reaches zero, these will be automatically used until your stocks are exhausted.

One other method of restoring Snake's health is simply to find a safe hiding place and let him stand still. After a few seconds the Life Gauge will slowly start to creep back up. If you crouch or go prone, it will refill more quickly. If you have good cover, you'll find that this even works during boss battles. This can be a great way of refilling your Life Gauge for free - essential when...
 

Windows 7 Information Officially Revealed!

200°
331w ago - With Vista struggling Windows 7 it's the OS on everyone's lips at the moment. It could be set for an early release in Q4 2009. Chris Flores, from the official Windows Vista Team Blog brings us up-to-date.

Flores has conceded that Microsoft is working on Windows 7, but has stated that this is normal in the Windows OS cycle. "...we started working on Windows Vista even before we released Windows XP. So naturally, we've been thinking about the investments we made in Windows Vista and how we can build on these for the next version of Windows," he said.

This time around Microsoft has taken a new approach with Windows 7 by strategically sharing information with key partners. While this has already begun, neither Flores or Steven Sinofsky, Windows and Windows Live Engineering SVP, in a chat to CNET, would be drawn on a firm release date for Windows 7.

Sinofsky stated that they didn't want another five year wait as was the case with Windows XP and Vista, and it was more likely to be three years between the day Windows Vista went on sale to the day Windows 7 does. If you do that math, that would still mean start of 2010, but not far off late 2009. The possibility of an early release is still alive.

Flores has also confirmed that Windows 7 will be a major release. It...
