MGS3 Food Question

I was wondering if anyone could confirm something about food spoiling in Snake Eater. I read somewhere that the food in Snake's backpack spoils depending on the ps2's internal clock. This sucks for me cause i don't have time to play games every day (school and whatnot). so can anyone confirm this?

I took two days off of the game, and when I played tonight, all of the food I had was spoiled, so it seems to be true.

I haven't had a chance to play this game yet, but I was wondering if this food system is fun or annoying? To me it sounds annoying that you have to actually stop and eat food. It sounds like a Sim game not an action game.

The food thing is not as annoying as the Sims. Basically, your stamina drops at different rates depend on what you are doing, as it drops so does the amount of time you can hang or hold your breath.

Eating is kind of an every now and then timng, not constant.

Ugh. This is horrible. When you HAVE to play a game for any reason it becomes work.

After playing Animal Crossing and watching a friend of mine become a retarded, drooling vegetable due to Final Fantasy XI, I have vowed to never play any game that does anything in accordance to real time again. It may sound like a neat idea but when you HAVE to play a game every day or else something bad happens or you HAVE to play a game at a certain time that's where I think we need to draw the line.

I'm not too far in the game and have only played on occasion. Everytime I come back into the game, most of the food that I collected has spoiled. However, this has never been a big problem as I have not really been required to eat much and food seems very plentiful. If your really worried about spoilage, you could always just cage your food so it doesn't spoil.
