    Wonder how will a 50 years old Venom Snake with a Prosthetic arm would look like in the Peace Walker/Ground Zeroes suit.

  • SamOp

    why is 64 bit OS required?that’s stupid!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Yeah, and i also don’t understand why is DX11 only if is not even using DX11 features, like Tessellation?

      • Tessellation… devestation…

        • MichaelPayneV
          • Console peasant that I am, I can’t even tell the difference.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I hope you’re being sarcastic right now, for your own good.

          • I can’t really tell the difference between the two pics. :/

          • MichaelPayneV

            For real? Look at the Ear folds and Collar!

          • Big_Boss88

            The difference between the pics is quite minimal imo, that it can be hard to notice. I mean if that would be in motion during playing/cutscene, I wouldn’t perhaps even see the difference that well.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Still, we should get Tessellation, is 2014 for God sake!

          • Alberto Sánchez

            What collar? It is the T-shirt.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, the Collar of that Shirt!

        • MichaelPayneV

          Ahhhh.

          “What a mess we made,
          When it all went wrooooooooooong!”

      • Tye

        Phantom Pain will probably have the full feature-set with Tessellation and probably other Nvidia goodies, lol. Ground Zeroes is still running on an older version of the Fox Engine.

    • kuki164

      Because game use 4GB. You cannot use more than 3GB RAM on 32bit systems.

      • SamOp

        do i need to buy a new cpu to change to 64bit?

        • kuki164

          Yes

          • SamOp

            I just checked it out and apparently a 32bit OS can use up to 4gb of ram per process,not 3

          • SamOp

            nevermind just read about the “3gb barrier”,…

          • kuki164
  • MrVux007

    Ohhh boy ohhh boy….good to see that bad ass sneaking suit return ! (wonder if we will be able to upgrade it like the TPP sneaking suit)

    • MichaelPayneV

      Wonder how it will look on a 50 years old Snake with a Prosthetic arm and a shrapnel in his head, and a Ponytail!

      • MrVux007

        im allready in a dream……. XD

        • MichaelPayneV

          “I’mmm, stiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil, in a dreeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam….”

  • Guest

    Big Boss is welcoming you PC Gamers! ( Sorry I only have Mac 😀 )

    • MichaelPayneV

      This sh*t is trippy

      • XIFF-5

        LOL I posted this, but I found the pics were repeated and deleted the comment and It made it as a guest comment 🙁 SORRY

        • MichaelPayneV

          No problem!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Guys, have you see the new Steam Controller? This seems perfect for Metal Gear, you have Analog Stick precision for controlling Snake, full control of Snake Speed when sneaking, and Mouse Precision for Aiming thanks to the Circular Touch Pad from the Right!

    • Fredy Carius

      will it ever be released?

      • MichaelPayneV

        What kind of question is that? Of course it will, sometimes in 2015 i think!

        • Fredy Carius

          Cool, cause i think it’s like the third design so far and by the looks of it, it will evolve to a x360 controller

          • MichaelPayneV

            I think this is the final design, it looks 100% exactly how i wanted it to be when this design was revealed!

            And NO, i’m not joking, the first thing that i wanted to modify when i saw THIS one was to move the D-Pad Up-Left, and to replace the Left Pad with an Analog stick as Analog sticks are more precise for Character movement then a touch Pad, especially for stealth games like MGS, while also keeping the Right Pad for moving the camera!
            http://o.aolcdn.com/hss/storage/adam/89faba308c424dadfa828cbcc0fb375d/DSC00114.jpg

          • Big_Boss88

            Looks pretty weird, but awesome at the same time. I had no idea they were developing this controller lol XD… I guess it make sense as we’re getting that Steam Console/Machine :P.

          • MichaelPayneV

            The one from above is the New One, and to me looks like a Controller made by PC Gamers, for PC Gamers!

      • Max Colliander

        In march 2015 😀 hell yeah, gamestop.com says 31 march and my local store Today get the date 29 march. Probably Kojima gonna announce this at christmasday on Kojima station 🙂

  • MichaelPayneV

    This is how the Snake would look on PC if Ground Zeroes had Tessellation, hopefully the Modding Community manages to implement it, if Kojima Prod. is too lazy to do it by themselves!
    (Look at the ears)
    http://thegamingliberty.com/wp-content/uploads/mgs_groundszeroes_art.jpg

    • AgitAngst

      That’s how he would look if there was no consoles…:x

      • MichaelPayneV

        Hmmm, nope, the only thing needed for Snake to look like this is Tessellation, nothing more, the Model is already enough detailed, so Tessellation would be more then enough to make it look like this.

        • AgitAngst

          There is no way lighting in game could get us this quality of picture. And texture quality is much bigger, i think it is bigger, then we could use on PC. It was rendered with 3-d party render enigine, like Arnold or Vray (i don’t know what KP using to render this pictures)

      • Without consoles there would be no Metal Gear…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yes and No at the same time, Yes, MGS would not exist without consoles, but Metal Gear would still exist, since Metal Gear 1 started on MSX, a Microsoft Personal Computer (PC) so you could say that Metal Gear just like GTA is a PC Franchise that got more popular once it came to the OG Play Station 1!

          Is so funny when you think that Metal Gear could have become Xbox Image instead of Halo if the Play Station 1 didn’t support it.

        • Guest

          While I understand what you’re saying the funny thing is the original Metal Gear was first released on MSX2 home computers in 1987.

          So technically without PC’s there would be no Metal Gear.

          • I know that, but Metal Gear wouldn’t have become what it is today without consoles, or PlayStation in particular.

    • Alberto Sánchez

      Man, this is an artwork. You are terrible blind.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I know is a Render, i’m not blind, but i also know that Snake Model is already High Polygon, so Tessellation would make it closer to this.

  • Guest

    Fukk it, deleted!

  • MichaelPayneV

    5 people playing GZ right now, and yet no PC Gameplay leaking on YouTube!

    https://steamdb.info/app/311340/graphs/

    This means that either the Game reviewer kept the footage for themselves, or those are either the Game Testers, and if they are the game Testers, then that is worrying, which could mean that it isn’t finished it.

    • Big_Boss88

      I wonder if they are gonna review this again, well ’cause of PC release. Then bash it down to ground again. Why? Because of the shortness of story and GZ having a price…also no Hayter :P.

      It was very annoying to read some reviews of it back in March, because many were only whining about these three things. But GZ kicks ass!

      • MichaelPayneV

        That’s because 2 of those things were a problem, actually 1, The Price, people didn’t had a problem with The Length, but with the Price from its Length, and they had all the right to do so, even the right to not Review it as a protest for its Price for The Length.

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm yeah, but it was annoying because I want MGS games to get 10/10 xD! But this is only a small part of V so maybe it couldn’t get max score for some reviews :P.

          I gotta admit that the price of 40€, which GZ was suppose to have originally would have been kinda high. 30€ was okey for me.

          • MichaelPayneV

            GZ doesn’t deserve a 10, 8 is the perfect score for GZ, because the Story is almost not there, so i’m happy that it didn’t got 10, because i want TPP to get 10, not GZ!

          • MichaelPayneV

            I would say that 20$ is a Perfect Price, plus 1 day after GZ released on PC the Steam Sales will start, so if you’ll wait and not get it on PC day 1, then you may get it for even less then 10$!

            That’s what i will do, i won’t buy it tomorrow, i’ll wait to see if part of the Steam Sales!

  • MichaelPayneV

    So if i don’t kill Glaz & Palitz i get to have them in my Mother Base in TPP?

    That is fukkin awesome, it would be even more awesome if i can recruit the entire Camp Omega for my Mother Base.

  • Big_Boss88

    Very nice, I’m satisfied with this price 🙂 and that MB staff bonus in TPP is awesome. I think it was the same with PS4 :D.
    I can’t wait to start building my MB in The Phantom Pain and invade everyone’s bases >:D !

    • MichaelPayneV

      Now i won’t kill any Soldier from Camp Omega, i will extract everyone, EVERYONE, not just from Ground Zeroes, but from the side missions as well.

      I will also try extracting the Body Snatchers and the MGS1 Soldiers, just for curiosity!

      • Mini gear

        With all the people I extracted, motherbase will be full as soon as I start TPP :p

  • ElAlca

    Will this be launched today or tomorrow? Because in Japan is already Thursday.

    • Big_Boss88

      Tomorrow in Europe I think. It seems that it is available to be purchased after I come home from work :D, nice timing.

      • ElAlca

        Oh, thanks!

    • MichaelPayneV

      I can’t see sh*t.

      I love the opening cutscene, just so darn cool. The way Kojima uses the camera is awesome. Best way to start a game ever.

      Here’s To You Kojima-saaan!

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yeah, i love the opening scenes, and unlike the Afganistan Scene from TPP, the camera hasn’t changed its position since PAX 2012!

  • Big_Boss88

    To get hyped for Ground Zeroes!

    • teknx

      I see the violin section, but no fiddles section. Why?

  • LukesAlike

    Wow, that came quickly. Forgot it comes out tomorrow.

  • Cmosfbincludestdioh

    i cant wait until i can finally enjoy this game on my PC already got it on PS4 but having MGS5 on PC just takes it to another level

    • Big_Boss88

      Yeah I’m gonna play it all weekend lol xD and collect them achievements again etc!

      • Mini gear

        If it’s metal gear I’ll devot myself for 100% again

  • Cloud Strife

    CPU requirements are really, really steep now. I’ve got a GTX 780, but I’m still running an i5 750 OC’ed to 3,8ghz (gonna upgrade next year). My CPU is nowhere near even the minimum requirements.

    • MichaelPayneV

      So, is it well optimized?

      • Cloud Strife

        How would I know? It’s not out yet. I’m just concerned. I was expecting a smooth ride since the game already runs at 60fps on ps4 and next-gens are hardly cpu power houses. That’s why it’s so shocking that it suddenly requires 4th gen intel cores.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Well looks like someone already got his hands on it!
          http://youtu.be/jpUKdZ2nWW0

          • Cloud Strife

            Yeah, but there’s no mention about specs he’s running :/ I’d like to see how it actually performs before I buy it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, also i don’t see the Depth of Field being enabled here,don’t know why.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Guys, PC Gameplay at 4K, but unfortunately the dude who uploaded it didn’t think to record it at 60fps!

    • Invader_skoodge

      LOL Just seeing how you’ve been spamming the comments I think you might like this at 1080p 60fps

      • MichaelPayneV

        Thanks. So far looks like a better optimized Game then AC Unity and Watch Dogs.

  • Javier Sosa

    I want something like this.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Looks like we need the Help Modding Community!

  • Mr.Pony

    According with the PC Gamer Review it seems that we get Deja-Vu and Jamais-Vu mission on the PC version

  • Covert Gamer

    Just to update you, they posted another requirements section via a tweet to the following link:
    http://www.konami.jp/mgs5/gz/jp/products/steam.php5

    The minimum GPU needed is GTX650 (2GB), not 4GB.

    • It changed yet again? Well anyway, the post has been updated, thanks for the heads-up.

      • Covert Gamer

        No problem buddy.

        If by chance anyone here is looking to play on a Mac, it plays just fine. I’m using a 2013 MBP with Intel Iris Pro 5200 (1.5GB VRAM) and it plays smooth at 40fps on medium/high settings.

  • Big_Boss88
    • MichaelPayneV

      Thanks for sharing, buddy.

      • Big_Boss88

        No problemo my friend :D.

        • MichaelPayneV

          HOLLY SH*T, just like in the PAX 2012 Demo, Snake Beard is affected by the wind, YES, looks like the PC Version is the Main Definitive Version, and that it was planed from the very beginning!
          Also, on PC it looks amazing, the cutscenes feel more immersive,and it makes the overall Single Player experience way better then on Consoles!
          http://youtu.be/o4JCwNBvcsA

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice :). Also 20 minutes for release I think :D, here’s hoping that my computer can play it with quite high settings ;).

            I need to buy a new graphics card next year before TPP release <3, although I maybe first play it on PS4…or well it depends on when PC get it.

            I always have a hard time to decide should I buy new games on PS4 or PC lol, like Dragon Age: Inquisition etc… I love PS4 but PC too! ;D

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hopefully i can run it at Low 720p 24 fps with my GT 630 with 2GB of VRam, 2 GB of Memory RAM and my Dual Core 2.66 Ghz.

          • Big_Boss88

            I’m sure you can :). I got myself GeForce GTX 650 Ti, so I hope it’s good enough. I’m not really tech nerd, so I dunno about these things very much xD. Well anyway, ultra high graphics or not, what matters the most to me is that we can play it on PC :D!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well THIS Piece of sh*t PC of mine can play Rising at Medium&High 1360×768 with like 40/50fps, so as long as i can play it at more then 10fps,i’m fine,all hat matters is that i can play Metal Gear Solid with Mouse&Keyboard.

          • Cmosfbincludestdioh

            same with me need a new gpu before tpp

          • Mini gear

            I bought my ps4 and pc mainly for metal gear

          • Big_Boss88

            Same here lol ;D, I decided to buy my PS4 a week before Ground Zeroes released xD. I also bought PS3 years ago because wanted to play MGS4.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I also wanted to get a PS4, i actually ordered one waiting for the retailer to get the PS4 consoles, basically for the consoles to come in my Country, so i ordered it, and then like a few days later i saw THIS Live, on my Tablet, and immediately canceled my PS4 order, because i was way to happy and excited about it…and at this day i don’t regret canceling my order!

            http://youtu.be/vgku7S5Y6Jo

          • Big_Boss88

            Yeah that’s a very lucky thing to happen for many people :). I mean saving that 350-450 € from buying a new console, when MGSV come to PC. That is if MGS would’ve been the only reason to buy PS4. I never though it would’ve come to PC, but glad it does.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, so lucky my retailer didn’t had PS4 at that moment.

            If God exists, is the God that stopped me from buy a PS4, because he knew something that i didn’t knew.

            That God is Hideo Kojima

  • Big_Boss88

    Hey folks Ground Zeroes is now available on Steam! At least in GMT+2 zone. Price only 13,39€ until 20th December :D! Happy gaming!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Damn, this is cheap as fukk!

      Wonder how lower this will get when then Steam Sales start.

      I’ll wait 1 more week before i buy it, i’m curious to see how much the Steam Sales will lower its price!

      • Big_Boss88

        Yep :D, a nice surprise!

        • im a dot

          a Christmas release date on kojima station would be a good surprise too 😀

  • Cloud Strife

    Initial experience is pretty good. I get a pretty stable 1080p@60fps on my rig (old, OC’ed i5 750@3,8ghz + gtx 780). I had to turn a few options from very high to high, but it still looks great.

    • MichaelPayneV

      It is better optimized then ACUnity?

      • Cloud Strife

        Never played AC Unity, but from what I heard about it I’d say yes. As I said, my CPU is really old and a huge bottleneck on my rig, some games choke because of it, but Ground Zeroes runs surprisingly well considering its official CPU requirements.

        • MichaelPayneV

          O.K. i’ll say a few games and you tell me if is better optimized then any of those:

          Watch Dogs
          The Evil Within
          Far Cry 4
          Dragon Age Inquisition
          The Crew

          • Cloud Strife

            I only played a bit of Watch Dogs and The Evil Within. It runs way better than Watch Dogs and definitely better than The Evil Within before the optimization patch (which actually helps quite a lot). It does help that there are a lot of settings so it’s actually possible to find a performance/graphics sweet spot.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Better then The Evil Within before patch, before patch i was able to play it, didn’t ran well, but it was playable, now i’m gonna have to try it with the patch, so i should not worry about Ground Zeroes!

          • Cloud Strife

            You should be fine. With everything maxed at 1080p I was hitting 50-60fps. I wanted solid 60fps so I turned down model detail and shadow quality down to high.

  • Big_Boss88

    Hmm dammit, anyone else experience problems with Xbox360 controller or Keyboard+Mouse? My buttons are somehow messed up and can’t rotate the camera. It happens with both controller types :(… There seems to be few others with same problem in Steam community hub. I wonder what causes this.

    I was thinking it was weird when in main menu it told me to press “A”, but for me I had to press “B” button. Well other than this problem, it seems to work very well for me and looks beautiful :D. But just can’t play this way :O…

    • Big_Boss88

      This reminds me a bit of was it Dark Souls or Borderlands, where my controller was messed up in a similar way too for a while. Well I guess I gotta wait up for someone smart to come up with some fix ;).

      • MichaelPayneV

        Hopefully they get Feedback from us, and make sure they don’t do the same mistakes with Phantom Pain, because the only reason i can give them a pass is because this is Ground Zeroes, and is meant to be a Paid Beta unfortunately.

        • Big_Boss88

          I actually found a fix for it :D.

          http://steamcommunity.com/app/311340/discussions/0/619574421283121561/#p2

          “Hey folks I think I found a temporary fix, well at least for myself.
          Unplugged Xbox360 controller from PC and K+M works now.

          Or maybe can try if do it the other way around. Unplug Keyboard and Mouse= Controller works? (haven’t tried yet). if so then it seems them being used together somehow messes up the buttons and camera movement from working properly.”

          Other guy on forums checked the 2nd way. Unplug keyboard, then start game and controller works. Safe to plug-in keyboard then again. I will try this now :).

          *EDIT* Hmm didn’t work for me. Oh well, K+M it is :D, I’m sure I’ll get used to playing with them. Just need to memorize the buttons etc.
          *EDIT2* Ok this other dude found a fix yeay! Just plug in the Xbox controller after starting the game lol. It was so simple, but I forgot to try this!

          • Rone

            Plug the controller in directly after the loading screen, when the konami text appears.

  • Big_Boss88

    Voice switching, I was wondering how to do it. I’ll maybe try Japanese if this works.

    • MichaelPayneV

      If is your first playthrought, is not worth it, it has 1 censored cutscene in the Japanese version, 1 out of 3!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Why was Konami afraid to show Direct Feed PC footage before launch, why didn’t the had confidence in their product, because it look way better then at Kojima Station, they have no reason to worry.

    Hey Konami (Slap to the Face Sound) Wake up and have confidence in your products, because they are fukkin great.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Total Biscuit on Ground Zeroes.

    “I’ll probably buy it as a New Benchmarking tool, that will be nice…is cheaper then buying 3D Mark (Says laughing) ,and you get a free 2 hours Game with it!”

  • Marxal

    Anyone know how to turn on Japanese audio? It’s not in the options menu and changing the display language only changes the interface and subtitles.

    • Javier Sosa

      You have to do it in steam. But you have to download all the game again because it´s a different data. The save game too.

      • Marxal

        Ah that sucks, but totally worth. Thanks for the help ^^

  • Javier Sosa

    The head’s shadow still the same. And some little errors to. Like the shadow of the helicopter in the intro or some subtitle repetition of kaz saying “we built it” in spanish. (the picture of the helicopter’s shadow it’s from the ps4 version, but it happen in all the versions, the pc version too).
    But the game looks great. The only things I don´t like it´s the exaggerated blurred effect and the soldiers appearing a second or two later when I use the binoculars and disappearing when I put them sleeping together.

  • Javier Sosa

    And what happened with the import music option? My idroid needs to reproduce james walsh’s songs.

    They really did a great job with this port http://i.imgur.com/QAybeeo.png I’m getting a stable 60fps with these settings, some drops down to 50-55 if I’m sprinting around on alert at the base with lights all around but all in all runs extremely well. Super happy about this, now all we need is a PC version of TPP that launches the same day as the console version

    I didn’t think it could be possible, but my 3 year-old PC can run the game with everything on High. I built it for around 700 bucks monitor and all. Best investment ever. 😀

    I have played it like 2 hours and works fine, but it freezed 2 or 3 times like a second. Maybe because all the nvidia games has problems with amd cards. It works at 1080p60fps with my i5 4670k – r9 270x 2gb – 8gb ddr3 – with high settings.

      I think it’s because of the auto save during a mission ( I had some freeze yesterday only when the game was autosaving).

      • Javier Sosa

        I think you are right. But it’s a shame.

    Damn ain’t got the time to play this at the moment because of work T_T…

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but the audio drama is available on the iDroid when playing with Japanese audio. Its subtitled in English too.

    So Ground Zeroes PC JPN will have retail disc? :O

  • also this is a nice bonus for those who prefer the cannon dub (Japanese)
    you get the Kazuhira blues cassettes with eng subtitles… also the Paz gore cutscene is a mix of the eng and japanese shots… not as censored as the jp one but things are different… also game feels more alive and with Jpn voice and eng subs… wish they put a eng sub patch on jpn copies of MGS4 (the BB bossfights are really disturbing with Jpn voices)

    • Big_Boss88

      Daaamn now that I got time to play this again :D, I will try Japanese VA!
      Thanks for telling this.
