I actually remember seeing this Metal Gear ad in a hand-me-down comic book as a kid and being under the impression that it was more about shooting things than sneaking around. I was disappointed when I finally played it and realized it was a stealth game.
>yeah, probably. it's perfect other than the politics. and demographics...
It's hard to believe that it was a red state as recently as the 1988 presidential election. That shows how powerful demographics really are.
>I'd like to get a 4 track myself but I don't think I'd use it too often. If I were making music I'd get one for sure.
I only ever used mine years ago, and that was as a test to make sure it worked. I haven't been satisfied with any of the music I've made to the point of running it through there yet. I'm aiming for both saturation and pitch instability, and doing that stuff with software just feels wrong to me.
I've heard that 4-tracks have also risen in price over the last few years, but I don't know if that's true or not. It sucks if that's the case.
At some point I plan on meddling with the belt inside my cheaper cassette player to get some crazy wow and flutter, but I think that's a while away at this point.
