Okay I've played through most numbered Metal Gears and just got over the microwave scene from MGS4, playing that for the first time. I got carpel tunnel, I'm in my 30s, and I'm having a harder time with button mash QTEs. Honestly, besides putting the player in the bad moodset of the character (what I think Kojima goes for), I honestly don't know why games still use these. So, the shock torture with Strangelove in this game. How bad is it?

It was pretty rough, not gonna lie. I hate these, and the series would be better off without them.

I find that if I put the flat part of my fingernail on the button and swipe it back and forth, that tends to work (including in PW), but obviously that's not only BS in the first place, but may or may not even be possible for some players.

Argh. x.x How long and mandatory is it? I swear I wanted to kick Kojima's behind after the microwave scene in MGS4. Course I hated these when I was younger too. MGS1 was just plain mean since I was particularly attached to Meyrl and could never make it through the torture. Was even worse since I have to skip through cutscenes each time I reload. but for some reason Ocelot didn't do anything when I used "autofire" for Twin Snakes with an off-brand controller. Come to think of it you don't see much controllers like that these days.

It's mandatory.

It goes for a few rounds, a few seconds apiece.

I usually use my knuckle to mash the button; makes the mashing scenes so much easier.
Hope rides alone!

Is it possible to "lose" this one? I think out of the series, Volgin's in MGS3 was the easiest, but only cause there's a "cheat" to breeze by it. For some reason the Solidus strangling was harder in my second playthrough of MGS2.

UGH! Okay, I'm playing it right now. I thought I had a good method where I use a Lego motercycle to rub on it, but even that's not perfect. I somehow got through it the first time around only to realize that you go through it all over if you don't escape the prison fast enough. I tried restarting to see if its easier the first time around, but nope. I don't know how I pulled it off. Maybe I was just less fatigued the first time around. Honestly, I kinda wanna politely ask Vanessa Marshall to personally apologize as Strangelove to me for this.

rub the right side of the controller with a fork up and down as fast as you can, that did it for me!
im surprised somebody's actually struggling with this mission. But if you cannot beat it after passing the torture sequence, you should stop as your are indeed bad at this game
I unlocked the stun knife in mpo by replacing it's skin with that of the other knife
