Hi! I'm quite new to metal gear and my friend got me into it and he showed me Emma Emmerich's parrot and right away I thought hey that's a stylized female alexandrine parrot in the photo based off of the colour, the eyes, the prominence of the beak (which differentiates it from an indian ringneck).
But I'm not too good at adding trivia sections and formatting. I read it says it is a budgie in the novel but based on the images from the game that's definitely not a budgie as they are very small, have a prominent cere, the green ones have yellow as well and stripes and cheek markings.
Thank you if anyone knows how to add this information and I wish you a lovely day. For reference here is a picture of a female alexandrine parrot.
So I recently decided to play through Metal Gear Solid 1 and I got all the way up to rex and. the fight is impossible as far as I can tell. Since chaf grenades don't seem to stop him shooting at me like they are supposed to I can barely get past the first stage without loosing all my health and rations and by the time I get to phase 2 I'm completely out of healing items and stuns also don't stop lquid from shooting me dead and just blind me.
Are the grenades just another urban myth?
