How to Get 100% Completion on "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain"
Since it's been a while since I've posted anything, I thought something simple would be a good idea. I just (finally) got through playing "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain", by which I mean I got 100% completion. Getting 100% completion on this game is ...
