    Arghh.. Kojima you’re really killing me here with all these cool news. Can’t wait to find out what they got to show us, maybe give us a surprise 2014 release, thanks! 😀 😀

    Kaz: How’s he doing?!
    Doc: Well, he’s stabilized…but too much excitement and TPP release took too long…he’s in a coma.
    Kaz: Dammit Kojima!…

    • Omid Darakeh

      Goal to live up to that day !!! ;D
      I think the release date will be specified in the Gamescom,. :S

      • BigBoss_88

        Yeah, lets do our best to survive ;D !

  • Invader_skoodge

    I don’t think I can handle more gameplay footage. If they show a new setting like the African jungle, I’m going to ┻━┻ミ\(≧ロ≦\) (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻ from all the excitement.


    I kind of envisioned the ending of Ground Zeroes to go a little further than it did. This is just me, (and maybe I’ll write a fan fic abut it) but I think instead of getting the text at the end of GZ, it would have been cool if we saw like a TV with a news report and a news anchor saying all the things in the text, and then a little montage of all these countries denying their involvement with MSF and footage of the smoke cloud in the distance when the reporter says “However, in the moments prior and following the incident, several unidentified military helicopters where sighted in the area. ” And then we see Zero’s hand is holding a remote, and turns off the TV. Role credits. I don’t know. I guess what I wanted was that last text in GZ to be animated, in a TVnews report type of thing.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah the sudden cut off with text at the end of Ground Zeroes was pretty cheap.

      Yeah, with all the big words they are throwing around if we don’t see a new area like the African Jungle I will be like
      ┻━┻ミ\(≧ロ≦\) (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻ from the disappointment, lol.

      • Invader_skoodge

        Either way, I’ll be flipping out. lol

    • BigBoss_88

      That sounds like a great alternative ending too. and I didn’t think Ground Zeroes to end so soon either, because I thought it would end where we go to 9 year coma. I was really looking forward to the scene where Snake got bloody and shocked face in the helicopter :(.
      I also wonder how TPP starts, perhaps right from where GZ left us or in the coma table with Kaz and then we get a flashback to GZ ending while being in a coma.

  • Anonymous Climax

    I knew it was going to show up around this time, but not at Gamescom. I was thinking maybe PAX or TGS.

  • VicBoss

    Nice news !! I can’t wait, come on Gamescom !!

  • No Place For Hayter

    Darn, I will miss the “live” stream because I will be working, sucks, I don’t ever really do live things much anyway so not a huge loss fro me, either way I will still get to watch it live or not, HYPE!, lol.

    • BigBoss_88

      Yeah I hate missing something MGS related because of work too :(, but when TPP finally release, I’ll maybe call my boss and say I’ll be “sick” for one month lol.

  • PrinceHeir

    I doubt it will be a new area. Probably an expanded version of other areas of the desert(since it’s only one part of the desert in Afghanistan they have shown)

    Though more gameplay is always nice. I’m not really expecting something completely new from the ground up(would be surprise though)

    Kojima will be saving those at TGS as usual.

    I do hope they have other varied weather effects here than night and day. What about rainy season(like a lightning striking that could potentially harm you) or what about Snow(well it depends what time of the month of the game anyways)

    Still hype for this, but TGS is already around the corner so i’ll be saving more of my hype there!

  • Golgari

    “will show the impressive capabilities of Kojima Productions’ breathtaking FOX Engine”

    So yeah. They should show us Africa for that, seriously. African jungles. I want to see jungles and i’m sure the engine and games textures are now much better then what we saw before the announcement of MGSV right now.
    Jungle themed gameplay would be a fantastic idea.

    • BigBoss_88

      The live action trailer to The Phantom Pain, check it out if haven’t seen. TPP enemies discover Big Boss who’s wearing a Stealth Camoflauge-suit in Africa’s jungle. They really wanna get him.

      I’m so hyped that, this is what I’ll actually do in my nearby forest lol if they show jungle gameplay, so darn hyped O_o !
      But yeah :D, that would be so amazing! To be able to play in jungle in Fox Engine graphics :O, like a super-improved MGS3 experience.

    • jatin

      at that time .the graphics were sure amazing

    • Cartmangus

      That would be amazing. I seriously hope the game includes a jungle as dense and lush looking as that old fox engine screenshot, would be amazing to sneak around in that shit..

  • Damn Gamescom, they don’t seem to sell full event tickets, I’f rather go to the full event, and not one day.

  • jatin
