    FRICKING AWESOME! Can’t wait!

  • Fredy Carius

    Damn! There are some stations empty… LET ME PLAY IT!!!

  • flying_fox

    Lucky journalists, as usual… 🙂

    Damn, I completely forgot about these XNY watches… :-/ The number of GZ products is too damn high! Can’t keep up.

  • crimsonfox

    Lucky sons a bitches… I really need to try and get one of those watches when they come out. I have some of those Metal Gear Solid Figures with the gray packaging. I went to a local shop to check out statues and the owner was selling basically the whole set for $80 because he “Didn’t like Metal Gear anymore”. Guy is moron all he sells now is, and this is a quote from him “Things I like” horrible business model. Hasn’t he ever watched Joe Dirt?! “It’s not about you, It’s about the consumer” Sorry I lost my train of thought. But yeah I got Ocelot, Liquid Snake, Solid Snake, Psycho Mantis, Sniper Wolf and Vulcan Raven for $80! Moral of the story is I came up on that jackass, Metal Gear is the best series ever & Kojima needs to put this watch on my wrist already.

    • Nyxus

      Well at least you got a very nice deal out of it. His loss I’d say.

      • crimsonfox

        Defiantly, he doesn’t deserve to have them! My precious… haha

  • solidmatt

    We should get a slew of Ground Zeroes articles out of this. Also, anyone see any PS3/360 stations set up? I only see next-gen stations in the photos.

    • Batzi

      I see PS4 stations only.

  • NegaScott128

    Hmmm… one of those pictures (the one with the caption about the NA/EU journalists) has a screen saying, “Marine CP: Entering Combat Status.” Maybe that’s the new way to begin the Alert Phase without the countdown?

    • Fredy Carius

      i think somewhere they said that you won’t see an ALERT, EVASION, CAUTION bar in the screen anymore and the only way to know if they are not searching for you is by eavesdropping (and probably the music will help)

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Is it safe to say that metal gear solid rivals star wars as far as fan base and collectability? am i wrong for thinking that?

    • crimsonfox

      I wish it was as popular so more people could enjoy the great stories it tells. I was talking to someone at work about the story in MGS 3 and they didn’t take it seriously because it’s a video game. I forced her to watch the cut scenes during her lunch breaks through out the week. when she finished it, she told me I was right and that the story was awesome and it made her cry at the end. I win! assumption loses!

      Maybe if the Hollywood adaption is any good people will take notice. I really hope whoever does end up writing the movie doesn’t stray to far off the original story. It’s such a well written story and everything has a second meaning it would would suck if anything got lost in translation to film. If they treated it like Harry Potter and gave it 10 films it would do the franchise justice. If it becomes some bullshit one liner action movie I will CQC someone to hell. And you can hold me to that god damn it.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Good points

        • crimsonfox

          I do long to see a live action Gray Fox bash his head into the floor till his helmet cracks and he says “hurt me more” also the scene when Snake first sees him kill everyone in the hallway. From the Twins Snakes version of the game. That scene totally kicked ass. It had a crazy horror movie vibe. Loved it

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Yea and the shadow moses chapter of mgs4 kind of put me in the mind of star wars, slightly, im not saying it was just like star wars of course, but to me it was star wars-ish. I even think kojima mentioned that he briefly worked with grorge lucas studios while makeing mgs4. I think the futuristic feel of mgs4 made it similar to star wars. Maybe a bad comparison but there it is lol.

          • crimsonfox

            You know what, thinking back I get what you mean actually haha. Man I hope kojima finishes MGS with The Phantom Pain. Then had his team re make MG MG2 MGS MGS2 MGS3 & MGS4 on the Fox engine. I’d be so happy to see everything in this bad ass engine.

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Thats exactly what i want to happen to lol. And dont forget about the game we need featureing voyevoda and the cobra unit

          • crimsonfox

            And a film about Olga’s arm pit hair! Must see type stuff!

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Good points

      • Janeo

        That’s what I’m afraid of they might just make metal gear into a normal action film. Was your friend skipping the cutscenes, you should never skip the cutscenes in metal gear it’s the best story ever I even love risings story

        • crimsonfox

          She just watched the cut scenes on YouTube because she didn’t believe the story was going to be good. Then she borrowed her brothers PS3 play the hd collection. Best advice I ever gave anyone!

          • Janeo

            You always gotta try people into metal gear. I have tried and failed with many friends one of them even saying they just do it for money when I told him the series is over 25 years old even said the e3 phantom pain trailer was terrible so I gave up on the fool. I have been trying to get my brother into the series for years haven’t done it yet but I am going to get him to play through ground zeroes see if that will work I’m still hoping phantom pain has some kind of co op feature that way I will certainly get him into the series by making him play with me

          • crimsonfox

            I know what you mean. You’d think people would understand not every game series has been around as long for no reason. like I said earlier, some people don’t deserve this series or any of the benefits it offers morally haha.

          • Janeo

            Yeah it’s not for everyone but I really think every gamer should respect this series even if they don’t like it. I gave mgs1 to another friend through psn store and he said he played for 5 minutes and didn’t even get up to the elevator because the game sucked and it was to old. It’s understandable if someone plays mgs1 today and don’t enjoy it but you should at least give it a chance and show it the respect it deserves because games wouldn’t be what they are today without it

          • crimsonfox

            Sounds like you have horrible friends haha, I’m sorry man. Thankfully pretty much all my close friends like Metal Gear, I have a couple who don’t play games but they have been watching me play them since MGS2

          • Janeo

            Yeah my friends do suck but I don’t talk to them much anymore since we finished high school anyway. I have only ever managed to get one friend to play mgs3 and he loved it and completed it 100% when I let him borrow the game but now he won’t get peace walker so we can play it together so hopefully he gets mgs5. It’s hard having no one to talk to mgs about so I’m pretty glad I found this site

          • crimsonfox

            We will be here all week bro!

            Metal Gear ALL DAY on Metalgearinformer.com !

  • Cartmangus

    Someone needs to translate that tagline

    • Jonny2x4

      A Heavy Metal Picaresque! 3D CGI Graphic Novel

      • Cartmangus

        lol, thanks

    • Batzi

      Tactical Espionage Action 😛

  • Golgari

    The most important part is going to be about these journalists that will make previews about this game. I’m sure as hell that 90% of them will complain about 2 hours and then they will say awesome things about the gameplay which is much more important in the end.

    • Batzi

      They will say what GameInformer said. In fact, I am really happy that reviewers will review the game keeping the length in mind so that they can enjoy the game and focus on what matters the most which is gameplay and storyline.

      • Golgari

        If everyone will say what GI said then good news for Hideo Kojima, Konami and ofc MG fans. I hope so that journalists played this game a lot at Boot camp 2014.

        • Batzi

          I am sure they did. That’s the whole point of the boot camp. When MGS4 came out the same thing happened and Kojima and team took notes of the journalists’ feedbacks and made the final changes to the game to make it as flawless as possible.

          Flawless = Apply feedback while maintaining overall quality

          MGSV is getting the same treatment. The game has been ready for months now and all they have been working on is polishing the game.

    • crimsonfox

      I played the Tanker mission an unhealthy amount of times. I have the intention to do the some with Ground Zeroes. I have replayed Mario, GTA, Bomberman, and many other games countless times because of the unpredictability of another play through.

      • Janeo

        Same here I’m probably going to have gotten 40 hours out of ground zeroes by the time phantom pain comes I think I will just keep replaying every mission

    • Spencer Shea

      All they are saying on twitter is how they are blown away #MGSVGZNASU and that playing this game in 2 hours is not playing it

  • Machine Gun Kid

    I want the watch and the rex model badly

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    This game, this game… This game is going to be a Black Hole of LOST time come the 18th of March. Weeeeee….

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    I’m enjoying reading posts on Twitter by the folks at MGSV GZ Boot Camp.

  • Spencer Shea

    follow #MGSVGZNASU and they are giving out new details, How every soldier has his own face and what not

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    Sounds like Deus Ex Human Revolutions Immersive format and Interactive environment are a big influence for MGSV moreso than the GTA or AC series. Which would explain why the cinematic story mode is so short.

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    …This is starting to sound like a 15 – 20 hour game.
