      look at that face !!!!

    • Big_Boss88

      Is he drunk? I bet he was partying with Kiefer and Troy and them ladies all night long.

    • Invader_skoodge

      In this picture Kojima is thinking. “Can you believe everyone wanted a release date? My T-shirt, did you rike it?”

      • Big_Boss88

        LOL nice one, this made me laugh ;).

      • Max Colliander

        Iam swedish and i can confirm that if we could see the whole shirt it would be “tjugoandra den sjätte”

        tjugoandra = 22th (like in dates, not in counting then we say tjugotvå

        sjätte = 6th (like in dates, not in counting then we say sex)

        tjugoandra den sjätte = is the way to say the 22th in the 6 month.

        So Seroulsy ppl, we got a releasedate, for something, MGO or TPP. Kojima doesnt have to say a date, he already have. But i hope TPP comes soon and MGO 22/6. If u dont believe me, dont be sure u will get the date for yes, i think its already public 🙂

        So fucking sneaky Kojima ;D

        • Invader_skoodge

          I wouldn’t mind if MGO came at a later date. Kind of what GTA5 did. They released the game so people could enjoy the Single Player while they worked a little longer on the MP and then by the time most people were done with the story missions they released the MP so it added more life to the game.

          I WAS sO hoping for a march release…
          so sad i’ll have to wait another half-year for it :'(

      Wasted Kojima

    That picture of Snake with the V shaped like an exclamation mark looks badass. I wish that was the cover for TPP.

    • Alex

      It might be! I was there in Vegas for both the awards show and PSX, and when that popped up after Kiefer spoke and introduced Kojima, my heart exploded inside. I honestly don’t know how I’m still alive. Trust me, the pics and the video stream, does not do the stage production justice. It was absolutely the most incredible spectacle my eyeballs have ever witness in person. Even more so when something you love, like Metal Gear, splashes all over it. They used incredible projection technology that really gave incredible life-like 3D structure to all these 2D images. It was a gigantic Big Boss face right in front of me!

  • Big_Boss88

    Troy Baker looks badass with that beard.

  • Big_Boss88

    I’m happy that they give PS Vita some love :), getting good games next year like Konami’s Suikodens and RE: Revelations 2. Persona 5 gonna kick ass too!

    • PrinceHeir

      Wish it came with Revelations 1.

      Would have give me more reasons to double dip it.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      persona 5 is gonna tear shit up.but hype still hasnt woken up.

  • FreestylersUnited

    Yes! This is awesome! The MGO premire was insane! You guys should check this page out and join the clan like I did. I hope CLANS ARE AWESOME IN MGO! That we can actually have our own Mother Base for clans :O

    • Big_Boss88

      Boss of Victory

  • Kazuhira-on-the-roof

    U mad, Hayter?

    • MichaelPayneV

      Hey, that’s not cool.

  • i didn’t like Kiefer’s appearance. i could write and start ranting about how much i dislike the guy, but that’s a bit pointless. I’ll just say that he doesn’t seem sincere to me, it looks like he’s just doing his job and waiting for the checks without having a bit of passion for the work itself. which is ok anyway, i can’t really blame him for that but i think i’m not the only one who appreciate when a VA shows that he really likes and cares about the stuff we like.
    Like when we know that some of them play the games by themselves after they are done.

    Look at Baker here, i don’t know if he plays videogames or not but even in these pictures he looks nice and like he’s having a genuine good time.

    • flying_fox

      As you said: it’s ok anyway. 😉

    • Alex

      Dude, I was there in person, trust me he was genuine as hell. I know what you mean, I definitely felt like that way too about him somewhat, but all that changed when I was in Vegas. He not only loves Metal Gear, but the direction entertainment industries are going. He was also one of the only ones that didn’t use a teleprompter and just spoke candidly for as long as he wanted about whatever came to him mind. He actually spoke very little of Metal Gear.

      • well, i take your word for it then. wish i was there too to change my mind as you did

  • twelveshots

    “There’re a lot of Ocelot’s lines as that of Kaz”
    Be still my heart. ;_;
