    i really think Kojima should just keep doing MGS forever WHILE doing other games. I mean, he keeps saying he wants to move on from MGS. but he really hasn’t done it yet and i don’t think he ever will. so at the same time, he and his team can work on other new IPs. he could have done a new game a few years ago after PW or in between GZ and TPP.

    • Nyxus

      Yeah, a situation in which he alternates between creating a new project and a Metal Gear game would probably be good.

    • Cartmangus

      Seems like asking for a lot, lol. He’s heavily involved with development so making a game WHILE he’s working on TPP seems absurd, and they probably have been working on MGS5 since they got done with PW so that isn’t really realistic either. He’d have to take a complete break from MGS to make something else, which I’m not against at all, I would be interested in seeing him do something else.. Just not Zone of the Enders that never interested me

      actually he was planning on doing other works after MGS3, since he wanted time to fully develop the story,

      but since some fans out there are inpatient, they started sending death threats about how MGS4 should be a sequel to MGS2.

      until he actually takes the first step of moving to other projects, he’ll forever be stuck with the MGS franchise.

        You can’t blame fans for kojima going straight to mgs4 if he was ready to develop a new game he would have. Why do you so badly want to kojima to develop another game anyway I mean I’m pretty sure every metal gear fan would buy the game but I’m also sure most of us will be fine if he ends up focusing mostly on metal gear. Just be patient he hasn’t even thought of doing another game since peace walker I think they have been working on mgs5 as soon as they finished peace walker. I am curious about what other games kojima would do but I’m to exited about mgs5 to even think about that right now

    • Cyberlum

      But what’s there left to make? Kojima said he didn’t want to make MGS games about young Snakes since he is getting older and can only relate to late Big Boss whose story probably comes to a close in Phantom Pain so chances of him remaking MG1,2 or MGS1 are quite slim. As much as I love the idea of The Boss game I don’t see it happening. It’s probably for the best for Kojima to burn all the bridges in MGS universe so that Konami doesn’t ruin it after his real retirement and focus on his own projects he’s been dreaming for the last 5 or so years.

      • Nyxus

        Kojima wants the series to live on after he retires (and Konami too of course). But I personally think there is still a lot they can do with the series.

      That’d be sick.

    gorgeous work 😀

    why the hell it took them long to release this??

    Peace Walker is almost 3 years now.

    in other news, in Japan there was a survey on who was the no.1 coolest female seiyuu and no.1 mature male seiyuu in a poill of 1000+ people.

    it’s no surprise to see who’s the no.1 male on top ^^

    i see Romi Paku(Amanda) on the list, it’s a shame there’s no Kikuko Inoue(The Boss) or Yumi Kikuchi(Raging Raven/Strangelove) or even Houko Kuwashima(Para Medic/Mei Ling)

    though Kikuko is more on the mature side, while Houko Kuwashima is more of the angelic side. both can be cool depending on their characters.

  • Janeo

    To bad they aren’t doing this in English it would make sense since peace walker didn’t sell great outside of japan but I guess a lot people have played it now thanks to the hd collection. Anyway I wonder where Amanda is when ground zeroes is taking place

  • PrinceHeir

    btw @Nyxus:disqus , could you put like a discussion thread about what we can expect on Ground Zeroes the closer we get to the release date?

    i have some ideas on how the games will be, and i want to know the opinion of you and the community as well.

    plus it drives discussion on how the game will be, heck we might be lucky and someone might be able to predict how the game will end!!

    • glitchbomb

      Discussing possibilities is fun an interesting to an extent but the last thing I would want to do is ruin it for myself.

      • PrinceHeir

        it’s only speculations unless someone here has an advance copy!

    • Janeo

      Yeah that’s a great idea I would love to have a forum kind of of thing here every other mgs forum site is filled with idiots but most people that use this site are true fans so it would be fun
