Kojima takes a break from game checking as voice recordings continue

During the end of this week Kojima has been busy doing more voice recordings. The studio was doing checks for The Phantom Pain last week, but the past three days Kojima had no time because he had to devote himself to the recordings.

January 14th:

“I couldn’t barely touch for play check since I had long meeting and sound check yesterday.”

On the picture are Japanese voice actors Akio Otsuka, Tomokazu Sugita and Satoshi Mikami playing the roles of Big Boss, Kaz Miller, and Ocelot respectively.

January 15th:

“VO shooting all day, no time for game check today….”

January 16th:

MGSV-Voice-Recordings-January-16th-2015

“VO shooting.”

Looking a the script it seems that they are recording the voice for the iDroid (voiced by Donna Burke). Kojima will be in Taiwan at the end of this month to attend the Taipei Game Show. More information about The Phantom Pain is supposed to be shared during the game show’s stage event On January 31st.

    Sorry Nyxus, but didn’t you mean put Sugita and Mikami’s names after Otsuka’s name, instead of the beginning?

    • You’re right. It’s caused by some annoying ‘feature’ of WordPress that messes up the text when you cut and paste stuff.

  • Invader_skoodge

    I just can’t ever look at Sugita without thinking about this guy:

      Omg :O

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Big_Boss88

    Uhhh more VO O_o… is it foolish to still hope for March release ;O?

    • Mr.Pony

      *Sigh*…

      • Big_Boss88

        Thanks, I will try this.

      • Rob Machado

        same

      • Shalashaska

        this is incomplete !
        the last slide shows “Wither and die of old age” xD

        • crimsonfox

          He tried moving the time forward with his internal clock and The End’d himself.

          • Shalashaska

            hahaha You know when i was younger and playing this on my ps2.. i remember this fight with the end .. it was pretty had for me back then so i used that time forward technique but rather than killing him, he used to pick me up and throw me in jail.. i guess i was doing something wrong…
            In the end .. i finished him with a shot to his eye.. that was the most epic moment for me in mgs.. my bullet straight thru his scope and in his head!

          • I haven’t legit for The Ends in years I always shoot him in his wheel chair after the cut scene where Ocelot Russian roulette’s Sokolov haha

          • Big_Boss88

            When replaying it on Vita, I took a little break during the fight and continued later. Just to find out he died of old age -___-, totally forgot that happens. Didn’t get achievement for defeating him :(…

          • Shalashaska

            Then, my Crimson friend, you are missing the one of the BEST Boss fight MGS series has to offer!

          • I have played out a million times before. It’s just been a while since haha

          • Edward Wokhands

            WHAT? I’ve never seen him throw Snake in jail and never seen the through the scope shot! How the hell do you do those two? MGS seems to have unending easter eggs.

          • Shalashaska

            1. There is a cut scene.. the end finds snake sleeping and then picks him up and throws him in the jail.. its that place just before the fight with the fear ? There’s is that compound with scientist inside ? That place has a underground jail
            2. Oh sorry bud.. there’s no cutscene for thru the scope shot but it was an amazing kill.. perhaps it was a glitch or something but that was my second shot and he died.. the shot drained almost all of his health that was left after the 1 st shot i hit him with in another location.. it was amazing because i was crawling near the waterfall, behind a rock and he was sitting there on the other side of the water fall behind another rock.. I took aim and shot RIGHT into his scope..plus i found him with the glare his scope gives out and it was PERFECTLY alligned so all in all….an epic ending for me after i searched for him for so long

          • Big_Boss88

            Haha good one xD.
            Btw congratz for your promotion crimsonfox ;), lets bring the evil ones justice!

          • Thank you sir, congratulations to yourself also.

        • Mr.Pony

          Argh let’s skip all this waiting *Pulls and lights up Phantom Cigar*

    • Shalashaska

      Ocelots are PROUD creatures! We never stop hoping! Plus, Its idroid lines.. im guessing that its the last stuff in.. so perhaps we should wait till 31st.. if even then we dont have a release date and the VOs are continuing into the month of feb..then yea we can stop hoping for a march release

      Congratulations on becoming a mod ! 😀

      • Big_Boss88

        Thank you mate ^_^, I will do my best to keep this as peaceful sanctuary for us soldiers :D.
        I got some backup from crimsonfox and Golgari to fight trolles etc, which is great. We shall be known as The Ultimate Trio, lol.

        • Shalashaska

          So We’ve got 4 mods in total, right? 2 more and you can call yourselves the Cobra unit.

          • I’ll be the Fear.

            FEEEEEEEEAR

          • Shalashaska

            The coolest entrance of them all (excluding Boss)
            “I am The Fear… That bolt is coated with the venom of the Brazilian Wandering Spider. Soon a most exquisite pain will engulf your entire body. Your limbs will be paralyzed, your lungs cease to draw breath, eventually your heart will stop beating. Ah, but what fun would that be? Not a fitting death at all. The Boss’ apprentice… I will give you fear such as you’ve never
            experienced before. Come into my web… It is time… for you to feel the fear!”

            I love the end and the Sorrow (Not including Boss..everyone loves the Boss..) Man I just realized i have such amazing memories of the first time i played this game.. took me a whole week to figure out how to kill The end.. And Even long to get the sorrow!

          • Big_Boss88

            I just cleared today The Sorrow after a while and the whole river scene still looks and sounds so awesome. Such a nightmarish setting ;). That revive pill though…lol, I kept remembering I was able to use it anytime but had to “die” first.

            Dunno how I forgot that xD. I love the Fury too and well they are all awesome, but anyway his battle reminds me of MGS1 Vulcan Raven which is cool :D.

          • Shalashaska

            The first time i played i had gotten so pissed off not knowing what to do so i kept calling codec and after like what felt like a million calls’ Major zeroes says “snake take the revive pill..wake up, snake ” ..ahh the relief was amazing.

            I love the way he ends.. its sad.. the guys’ clearly a lunatic who has lost his mind because of some really deep wounds..

            I just finished MGS 3 again 3hrs ago 😀

          • Mini gear

            age might’ve slowed you done one bit boss

          • Metal Gear Solid 3 is my favorite because of all the amazing (yet cheesy) dialogue haha.

          • Big_Boss88

            I shall be the Fury.

            I have one vision, the world set ablaze…
            FURYYYY!

          • Mini gear

            the cobras represent my feelings of the wait. sorrow when no announcements, fury over chicken hats, pain over long waits, eventually joy of release date and the fear of waiting till June. then the end when I get to play this master piece 🙂

          • Shalashaska

            Mother of.. (O.O) I cannot believe the coincidence!

    • César H. Sandoval

      At this rythm, Q3 (July to September) of this year is your best hope for an early release.

      • Shalashaska

        Salt to the wound.. salt to wound, buddy.. salt to the wound..

    • Mini gear

      never give up my freind

      • Big_Boss88

        I don’t xD and thanks! It is good to know I’m not alone ;D…

  • Shalashaska

    Who else beginning to slowly slide the hope for march release to may or june ?
    Or Maybe kojima is just fiddling with us
    Either way, lets hope for the best and wish Kojima san finishes this piece of heaven soon 🙂

    • Mr.Pony

      Kojima be like “Snake, It’s not over yet!”

      • Shalashaska

        Better hold L2 so i dont take any damage from this torture.

      • Shalashaska

        “No thanks, not anymore, i’d rather die from foxdie”

    • Mini gear

      I wont give up, even if the day passes I still think its march even in September

      • Shalashaska

        WOAH NOT SEPTEMBER! I HOPE THEY DONT MAKE US WAIT THAT LONG … The wait will kill me.

        • Mr.Pony

          If they release in September I’m going to hibernate in a cardboard box until then

          • Shalashaska

            I’d whip out a phantom cigar and pretend to fast forward time.

          • Mr.Pony

            One must be aware of Phantom Cigar Smoking 🙂

          • Shalashaska

            Hahaha man Big boss Be like ” PFFT ! Please! I took out the cobra unit and the shagahod! Nothing can kill me now!”

          • Mr.Pony

            Fun fact: Big Boss wears an eye-patch, has a secret base in the middle of the ocean and kidnaps soldiers and makes them join his army, which is an army without a nation…he’s technically a pirate…

          • Shalashaska

            arrrrr mateeyyy.. light me a cigar and bring me my prosthetic limb! Time to get meself some GMP!

          • Guest

            One must be aware of the Phantom Cigar smoking 😉

  • CrazyGuy207

    Jeez, it’s like they only have 10 people working there this is taking so long.

    • crimsonfox

      Haha, it’s crazy to think in actuality it’s a huge team of hard working individuals. The game is sure to be massive in every way.

    • CTCCoco .

      You clearly don’t have idea how hard it’s to make a game, let alone MGS V.

      • CrazyGuy207

        No, I realize, but with the hype Kojima said about how games can be made quicker with the Fox Engine, and as long as this game has been in development, the wait is starting to feel worse. Especially with no release date. I feel if there was at least a time frame that he would give us, it wouldn’t feel so bad.

  • Sn4ke_911

    Game check continues.

    • Yeah looks like he’s checking again this weekend. So now he’s working seven days a week, crunch time I suppose.

      • Mr.Pony

        So…if they are working seven days a week that means that they already must have decided a release date and they intend not to change it. The fact that they are working so hard at this points it either means that they are behind schedule or on their final stretch…

        • Shalashaska

          Sir Pony, You made my day. That is true. Praying for a March release :’)

          • Mini gear

            seeing “march release” by others makes me so happy

        • Guest

          Well, teams like that always have a schedule, so that’s not new.

          • Mr.Pony

            It’s not about the schedule itself its about the commitment to follow it. If it was another team developing like let’s say Ubisoft they would launch the game anyway (Assassin’s Creed I’m looking at you), they would opt to launch the product instead of postponing it and as collateral damage the quality suffers. With Kojima we know that losing quality is not an issue, he’s a perfectionist in that way, which gives him only one of two choices 1) He works hard seven days a week to have the quality he wants and follows the schedule or 2) he postpones the game so he can have the quality it deserves.

          • Shalashaska

            ubi..cough cough..biowa…cough cough..techla..cough electrnic Ar..cough cough .. too many phantom cigars

        • Shalashaska

          You knoww..we are hoping that its a march release but everyone forgetting what he teased..22nd of jun.. that t-shirt stunt he pulled.. there was no explanation to that :'(

          • Mr.Pony

            What if all the pictures and tweets from everyone involved are old ones? Maybe he’s playing us like a fiddle… O.o

          • Shalashaska

            let us hope

          • Mini gear

            I keep faith in what the dlc told me… even though they changed it 🙁 as for that shirt, maybe he wanted something weird to wear

          • Shalashaska

            Lets just start crying now so it doesnt kill us on 31st :'(

          • Mr.Pony

            I think that the release date will be like 2-3 months after the release date is announced itself, having that in mind even if he gives us the release date on the 31 it would be more likely to be in April or May. having that said, June is the date that unfortunately makes more sense to me

          • Shalashaska

            *stabs myself with a cigar*

          • Mini gear

            I cant wait past april it hurts too much

          • Mr.Pony

            We are starting more and more to look like junkies waiting for the next fix. I think i need to call my sponsor or I’ll relapse on GZ again

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Can’t really base a release date off of that. I mean IMO I would rather have them take thier time. If it’s the end of 2016 or beginning of 2015 who cares as long as the wait produces a game that changes the way we look at video games. I have played all of the games and starting with MGS1 they do this every game.
          P.s
          I don’t know where I should put this but if you play mg1 an mg2 and mgs3 + end of mgs4 and the vita peace walker. I have come to the conclusion that big boss started to not believe in his cause any more. Tis why he showed up at ending of 4. I have a feeling that what we know of boss and big boss isn’t true. That TPP is the beginning/reboot of a new mgs timeline. Hideo Kojima has said todo what he wants he would have to make the games twice. So I have a feeling that he was upset about how mgs1 and mgs2 went. So starting with TPP all will be retconned some how. The birth of a new generation of metal gear is upon us

          • Shalashaska

            ok here is the thing, it is a different take to the Mgs series but its not a whole changing timeline.. yes we do know that Big boss regrets what he does.. the ending of mgs 4 clears that out but TPP is the beginning of that decline that big boss regrets having. he regrets not listening to boss and choosing to fight for survival rather than for his ountry like she did. Peacewalker goes through his emotions of loosing boss and by the end.. he wants to fight rather than put he gun down like the boss did. that fight between him and zero is what starts in phantom pain.. the creation of outer heaven..the patriots etc etc.. we know the way TPP will eventually end.. with Big boss Creating outer heaven and becoming that villian we see him in the previous games. and granted im sure some plot points will be crazy different, no doubt..

            As for the release date.. please no.. we cant wait that long.. i know i cant.. 2 years was more than enough..

          • Mini gear

            if its after march itll cause me to fall into a coma

          • Shalashaska

            scientist should study mgs fans on the day of the release date announcement.. they willl finally learn what happens to a human body when its exposed to vacuum in outer space. Poof.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            That’s the thing though we DONT know. It very well could be the reboot and that’s truth we don’t know. I am a fan of the series and the kool thing about KOJIMA is he does not care what people think. Does what he envisions as wholesome to his story. So if something needs retconned he can do it an will and has in previous games when the need has arisen. I’ve played everything MG and MGS related. I have a feeling and what I meant about restarting the series is this. We will see the turn to the dark side of BB and the next game will be metal gear 1 and metal gear 2 because let’sbe truthful here if you were gonna restart the series you would want to start about where TPP is gonna be starting at and retcon everything for the new and or changes to BB TIMELINE HISTORY. After that you would redo mg1 and mg2 because compared to MGS SERIES TECH. The beginning is very linear and vague.
            I just think before they redo MGS, he would REDO the BEGINNING.
            Hehe then again I could be wrong and there could be another snake or they str8 up cloned BIG BOSS AS A MAN.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Oh and I don’t care about the wait because with previous games I have played that looked good were so loaded with game breaking bugs or golem mechanics and or undone content they try and sell to you? I’d rather spend 64$ on a complete finished good game. Yet I’ve also waited years in between every mg and MGS title to date. I could just be used to waiting like a patient fan 😉

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Sorry I’m like ADHD AND I forget shit I was gonna say lol . Yea I know the whole story. I do get confused about time lines like I said I still remember infiltration n33n or whatever lol. This was the timeline I wanted to see. To see if he really blames u.s and NATO or skull face because that could mean a lot to the timeline depends on what we find out.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Plus idk the end of MGS 4 always bothered me. That’s playing as snake in Metal gear rofl when BB keeps saying basically oops yea I forgot to tell you that the floor was electric and oooohhhh the gas mask will keep you alive in gas room and oh shit that’s right there’s a hole in the floor whoooops.
            Then after all that time ya know from 1990 or whatever your saying BB JUST hid while all the stuff he believes in came to pass or oh yea fuck it. Then Pop up hug snake … Yea a lot needs fixed or retconned and redone to explain MGS 4 better. That’s just fact imo. Which don’t mean jack I admit ha anyways … I understand the younger kids didn’t get mg 1 or mg2 so MGS is there mg1 . I hope what I say comes to pass. As a whole it could make MGS one of the best stories and coherent stories in today’s time but as of right now the story is not so coherent . Except to the most dedicated that no every retcon and change to series. That’s why I think the restart is before our very eyes and he is fixing what needs fixed in his master piece

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Also damn near all was retconned in mg to make mgs1 happen. Throwing big boss off a bridge? You corner wit bullets and middles mg1 and then mg2 you kill bb with a lighter and spray

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I wrote a reply but it went elsewhere lol but I gave some points on why I said that better than my reply yesterday

    • Shalashaska

      Talk about deserving respect. Hats off to kojima san

  • RevolverRoden

    This game will never release confirmed.

    EDIT: “iDroid lines”
    Final VA sessions maybe? plz

    • Shalashaska

      haha even it was, im betting they wont say! if an announcement is so close at taipei .. im sure he’ll keep the suspense going till then
      My bet is that they are the last lines and hopefully will be over by the time taipei game show arrives and he gives the release date..although.. if he doesnt give the release date at taipei.. its a sure thing that its taking them longer for idroid lines

      • Big_Boss88

        Imagine when we see a last trailer, and at the very end we finally see release date. Something we have wanted to find out for a long time. I can already imagine fans going Nuclear :D.

        • Mini gear

          my head would pop 😀 is it possible to watch a stream of the Taipei game show

          • Big_Boss88

            I’m not sure, but I hope so. We find out the info soon maybe.

        • Shalashaska

          This is what will happen to me.

  • Batzi

    Those damn tapes

    • Javier Sosa

      I’m tired of listening Kazuhira talking every time I’m playing a mission in ground zeroes. That happen because they deleted the codec. If they give us back the codec we can hear the talks when we want and skip them when we don’t.

      • Hopefully they change that. I have heard his dialogue a couple hundred times I’m sure haha. If you finish the mission there should be an option to turn it off.

      • Big_Boss88

        It is maybe different in TPP because GZ was like a tutorial of the new gameplay approach. Also TPP is huge and might not hear Kaz or Ocelot all the time.

        But option to change it somehow would be nice I guess. 🙂

      • Tibor

        I loved the codec in MGS3. when they changed it in PW i found myself almost ignoring this new codec. mainly because if you wanted to talk to someone specifically you had to call multiple times until your special someone said his line but it was not the one you needed…

  • Mini gear

    just knowing he can scroll left to play at any time… dang you trolljima you’re my role model and enemy

  • Mini gear

    if there’s no release date at Taipei then its defiantly June or after march 🙁

    • Big_Boss88

      Mini I think we see the release date finally in GDC early March if not in Taipei, BUT never know what is coming so there is always hope ;D.

      • Mini gear

        GDC feels so far. gotta keep hope of a Taipei miracle ^_^

  • Javier Sosa

    I don’t want tpp to be coming late because of the online. If that is happening I hope they release first the phantom pain and months later the online.

    • Big_Boss88

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Me too. I’ll probably play single player through twice before I touch online properly anyway. I feel like the majority of MGS players will do the same. The story is what most of us want to see while messing with AI for hours on end. I still pester the AI in Ground Zeroes once a day.

  • Rikimaru

    Oh god just seeing that image of TPP being available to play for the PS4……

  • PrinceHeir
    • Big_Boss88

      Yeah that is super badass! 😉

  • Bigbossmsf1974

    It kinda hurts me more to see kojima sensei go threw all this mess in order to get the phantom pain perpetrated in time for these gaming events and the release date for his loyal diamond dogs fans, then waiting for the game itself. In all do respect i take my hat off to kojima, to his wonderful team, and to konami for the last past 19 years of my life for the hell of an experience. I started off in this journey as a 9 year old boy with solid snake, and let me tell you guy’s that l’ve never experience a story like this in all my 27 years as an gamer. The hardships, the struggles, the losses, the laughers and the joy this game brought to this little boy who knew little to nothing about life back then. Solid snake has taught me so much about how to live life by your own choices then on other people opinions, our fates are not decided, we make our own fates and that’s what snake taught me. From seeing solid snake losing his best friend and mentor gray fox, from seeing snake trying to save meryl and watching him being torture in seeing her suffer, from seeing otacon story and hardship battling his personal own demons, and seeing otacon losing the only person he loved and admired in the world, who was no other than sniperwolf brought me to tears in all. I thank you so much again kojima sensei and konami for all the years and giving us these wonderful masterpieces, and i know without doubt the phantom pain will bring all of us diamond dogs fans the same experience as the other metal gear solid games did, thank you sensei and V to big boss.

  • Batzi

    @Nyxus:disqus just for you! https://www.facebook.com/donnaburkesinger

    • So she’s going to create a music video with help from fans? Sounds cool!

      • Big_Boss88

        Awesome O_O !

    • Cmosfbincludestdioh

      nice 😀

  • Tibor

    this is Kojima. he shows us a picture from VO session so everybody thinks that they are still early in development, but then he shows us a picture from play testing so we think that they ended VO and moved on to testing, but then he shows us yet another foto from VO so nobody knows how far they are in development.

  • Mini gear

    just had a dream of playing tpp. best dream ever

    • Shalashaska

      You really should’nt tell people about your wet dreams! 😉 hehehe xD

  • Mini gear

    I feel like crying now, I need this game. its the best thing ever

  • NakedSnake85
    • Big_Boss88

      I just saw this on N4G, pretty cryptic response from David compared to before. But as I have thought all this time is that imo David will be in TPP. In the very end. They are playing with us :).

      TPP will release in few months I hope, but exec only said wont drag on to 2016 because can’t reveal more detailed and some fans are worried of delay.

      • NakedSnake85

        Im worried too.. its been a long time waiting.. when itll finally be released it will take me some time to fully realise it! :p

      • Shalashaska

        Lets be honest.. its their first try at a open world game with the fox engine and the world is absoutely massive.. so im guessing we shouldnt be surprised for a late release.. seriously though, its beginning to piss off people because atleast he should give a range or something.. perhaps he doesnt want to be the type of dev who gives a release date and then delays it for re-checking/bug checking and calibrating the game…well either way.. im gonna be disappointed/pised if we dont get this in march…. i respect his ideas and all.. but dayum tis wait is just too much :/

        • Mini gear

          u are dayum right sir. we’ve waited too long and the games looked fully well made since tgs. I understand kojima wanting it to be made perfectly but releasing it too far is too much for us. im dying for march, if it isn’t ill probley fall into a 9 year coma from waiting being prolonged too far.

        • Big_Boss88

          Kojima is seeking perfection with his games so there is that difference between him and many other developers. But all we can do is wait…the endless waiting. xD

          But for me the waiting is getting a little easier next week. REmake releases finally, then next month Order:1886, then Bloodborne on March + some other games… So if TPP releases much later than we think…then these games will keep me busy, at least I hope so ;). But sometimes hard to focus on new games because I want TPP, hope it don’t happen again.

          • Shalashaska

            True that. Respect deserved indeed.

            Awwh man, good for you.. all i have are unplayed games for x360.. currently on mass effect 2 .. just began a while ago..
            Then in feb there is DBZ xenoverse… but thats about it.. Got any suggestions for good game series ?

          • Big_Boss88

            I used to have Xbox360 too :(, but gave it away years ago when I had to buy PS3 and MGS4.

            I hope you enjoy ME series Shalashaska, to me ME2 still stands as one of the best games ever. Especially the characters and ending are so epic :). Hmmm…good game series uhhh. Something to pass time with, well those that come to my mind at the moment are:

            Fallout 3, Fallout:New Vegas, Res Evil 4 + 5, Silent Hill HD collection 2 + 3, Gears of War 1-3, Dark Souls 1 + 2, Batman games, Bioshock trilogy, Red Dead Redemption, GTAV and Mass Effect trilogy.

            Well those are the games that I have loved to play and I think they’re available for X360 too. Not sure have you tried all of them.

            Then there are the Halo games, but I never really got into them. Tried 3 but it wasn’t for me :). For upcoming X360 games, that I don’t know, except DBZ and TPP.

          • Shalashaska

            Buying a Xbx 360 was the biggest mistake of my life.. i should’ve gone for the Ps3 .. I thought it (mgs4) would eventually realease for x360 too one day.. But WORST mistake was that the year and a half after I bought x360.. ps4 was announced *bangs my head on the wall* :'(

            ok so i have to get fallout new vegas .. Silent hill collection, gears of war 3, Bioshock infinite.. I’ve played the rest.. I was REALLY hoping for Dying light but the buggers cancelled it because they were lazy to work on last gen.. still hoping they come to their sense and release a port but im guessing that aint happening..ever.. 😛

            I loved halo 3 .. its true though.. it does take a while to get connected to it.. and because of a twisted story.. i wont be getting the 3rd part.. they just wanted to cash in on mater chief so released a part 4 :/

    • Venom_Sina

      Thanks for the info.Strange.That response from David Hayter is weird.
      Dear Nyxus,can you cover this?Thanks in advance.

    • Shalashaska

      Lets be honest.. he isn’t coming back and Big Boss… As Solid Snake, perhaps if we ever get a remake then maybe he’ll be solid snake

      • Big_Boss88

        Oh David… you can deny it all you want, but you can’t fool me. See you in TPP >;D…

        To be honest, I’m perfectly fine with Kiefer as only Snake but it is hard for me to believe David. Because for all I know he might be planning some stuff with master-Kojima behind the scenes lol, while denying all this. Call me paranoid if want but that’s what I feel lol 😛 . XD
        Thx for the update Boss.

  • moto hellogoto

    I wonder if this site will still be popular when the game finally comes out.

    • MrVux007

      ofcourse it will.. 🙂

    • NakedSnake85

      There is always a chance for Mgs VI 😉

      • Mini gear

        will get vi before v gets a release date at this rate :p im too hyped from rewaching all mgsv footage today

        • NakedSnake85

          Hah true story bro !

      • Theo Cevallos

        I really really hope we get a MGS VI sometime not too far from now. In a sense how MGS 2 and 3 were released. I mean… Kojima just developed the Fox Engine… (they’re using it for Silent Hills too, right?) He must have more plans for it.

        • Shalashaska

          umm ..lets get this one first ? Plus if plan to make a 6th part or a remake.. its eaily gonna take more than 3-4years.. first he’ll focus on Silent hills and then switch his attention to mgs

          • Shalashaska

            so all in all.. gotta wait 5 years for that to be made after silent hills is made :/

    • NakedSnake85

      On a more serious note though.. we must support anyone who has such strong passion for the franchise.. its a great place for theories analysis etc.. so why not!? Back in 98 i thought i was the only one that loved mgs so much.. i was trying to pass my passion for mgs to others..but mgs needs dedication.. not for everyone.. thats the truth. Nowdays im glad that i can speak with all of u about mgs in a friendly and free space like MGI . Cheers!

      • Big_Boss88

        Likewise mate ;)! Also I have tried to convert my little brother to become an MGS fanatic like myself, but he is too addicted to LoL at the moment :(…

        He don’t know what he is missing but I try again later someday.

    • Big_Boss88

      Of course it will be moto :D, although TPP will keep people busy. But I know some will visit here besides me ^_^…

      • Mr.Pony

        As soon as TPP is launched the Hype Train for MGS VI will start xD

  • Edward Wokhands

    I know nobody cares and it changes nothing but I genuinely just got sad. I’ve been avoiding TPP news since that chicken hat reveal (which I was crazily excited about) and now after a long 20 or so days I find out that voice recording is STILL going on? I wish they’d just say “it’ll be done before June/July/December/Whatever month they think is the latest it can possibly be done.” That way I can just stop anticipating it and forget about it until then.

    How could they say early 2015 and then still be recording voices? Plus a few days ago they said that “we’re up to what, in movies, would be the editing phase”, which means (I’ve made a few games) it’s near completion. It usually means that everyone has gone home except the director and the editor. (I know, games need way more people, programmers etc during this phase) I wonder if they’re re-recording old takes? That’s the only thing that would make sense. I’d have thought that only play testing was going on now.

    Yet again I sound like an entitled maniac because of excitement for this game. I’m just annoyed because I only enjoyed Ground Zeroes and Mario Kart in 2014. That’s not many new games and then GTA 5 and The Last Of Us in 2013. That’s 4 games since 2011 when Skyrim released. The rest of 2014’s releases were genuinely awful, or just bland and mediocre. Phantom Pain, if it’s an expanded, bigger version of Ground Zeroes with a Kojima-esque story full of surprises will be my game of the decade. MGS3 was my favorite game for PS2 and MGS4 my favorite PS3 game and up until now Ground Zeroes is my favorite PS4 and PC game. Gaming is a mess of unoriginal and uncreative attempts at grabbing money, indie games have become a smaller version of the AAA industry, (only a few standout companies try new ideas there now, the rest are trying to cash in on pixel art trash) only Kojima and Naughty Dog seem to care about long term loyalty by expressing artistic ideas, by giving the player an emotion other than frustration at being conned by payed reviews. There are parts of every single MGS game that have stuck with me since I played them and they’ll stay with me for years, they have a lasting emotional impact that exceeds most movies and a lot of novels. I can’t even remember the guy’s name from The Evil Within, I can’t remember anyone’s name from Far Cry 4, I can kind of remember some parts of Alien Isolation but only because it’s so repetitive and they’re from a few months ago. Anyway I’m rambling like a maniac again, you get my point, I love Metal Gear and every time I see a new news story I get butterflies in my stomach in case it’s a release date.

    In short, I can’t wait. Please give a release date on Jan 31st. I won’t be expecting one though, the event doesn’t seem big enough. I don’t want to see any more footage of the game either, I feel like too much has been given away. Oh and please have the option to fight Quiet in a The End style boss fight if you piss her off. Please Kojima. PLEASE!!!

    • Mini gear

      its true I cant handle not knowing how long im waiting for, its got to where were waiting to know how long were waiting after the first waiting

      • Edward Wokhands

        I’m going to buy 2 copies of the special edition, burn one and rub the ashes all over my face while screaming when it’s released.

        • Theo Cevallos

          that’s quite funny

          • Edward Wokhands

            The wait genuinely makes me want to cry. I’ve literally stamped my feet over this game. I hurt my foot on Christmas day because of Kojima.

            I got funny looks from my family when I drop kicked the chicken we had with dinner.

  • Mini gear

    im really hoping the dlc announcement early 2015 is kept

  • Javier Sosa

    I don’t remember if before it was “earlier 2015”.

    • Mr.Pony

      It was announced as earlier 2015 but i guess that earlier is more like middle 2015 🙁

    • Mini gear

      “im breaking up insiiiide”

    • Andrea Feletti

      Maybe they wanted to release the game in early 2015 but they had few complications and changed their plans

      • Javier Sosa

        yep

    • Mini gear

      it did

      • Javier Sosa

        f*ck

      • Big_Boss88

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooo!…

  • NakedSnake85

    Thats what i think. Venom is not big boss. Hes a body double.. the game will end with us playing as venom trying to find and kill an intruder.. that happens to be solid snake.. and finally lose. Then the real big boss wakes from his coma and learns all the horible things venom did and decides to accept the villain role for whatever the reason.. what do u think?

    • Mini gear

      it wouldn’t sit right with me knowing I wasn’t big boss. but its a cool twist

    • Mr.Pony

      Solid Snake would be about 12 years old if the whole game is set in 1984, I hope that Kojima would make room for another game with Big Boss, see how the battle between he and Zero continues

      • NakedSnake85

        If the game stops at 1975 and continues in 1984 maybe the same thing could happen again. Who knows? One thing that bugs me though its the lack of female characters. Besides quiet that is.. no strangelove? No amanda? No eva? And what about bosses? Im really hoping for more ..those who dont exist.? Sure..but .idk maybe im over reacting but its something I was really thinking about a lot recently

        • Mr.Pony

          I’m getting the feeling that if we happen to see Liquid and Snake it will be as children still, maybe Solidus in a mature age, but nothing further then that. We still need to see Sniper Wolf and Naomi meeting Big Boss, at least i hope so. That’s why I think it makes more sense to see another game with Big Boss, where we could see Big Boss meeting these characters and see for example Liquid and Snake growing up and training.

          • Big_Boss88

            I kinda agree and 1 more game would be awesome, but after 10 years or something ;D… SH come first.

            I also hope to see older Solid in the end of TPP. Few months ago I had these ideas that the game skips some years ahead in time at the end, to make this possible. Then enter David Hayter for small part or post-credits scene.

          • Mr.Pony

            For and ending cut scene, Big Boss handing a cardboard box and be like “Your training is complete. You’re a real soldier now son…”

      • Big_Boss88

        The game might continue to longer years, after 1984. Like at some point we see “1 year later” kind of thing. Depends on how well Kojima plan to connect TPP to MG1 I guess. It maybe will be only in 1984, but I wonder how TPP story ends, when Kojima has said something like “players will make/realize the connection to MG1.”

        • Mr.Pony

          I’m hopping to fight Zero and in the end Big Boss only manages to gravely injure Zero and he escapes and so the battle continues.

          • Big_Boss88

            That would rock yeah.

            A man can only dream of what kinda awesome and emotional last boss battle will TPP have…
            Thinking back about past MGS, they all had such epic last bosses ^_^.

          • Mini gear

            im hoping tpp has a ton of main missions, story, and scenes. the scenes in this game are amazing, one of the best looking ive seen

      • turkishgamer35

        that would be legendary i mean if they follow big boss story we have solid ,liquid,ocelot,gray fox,big boss,miller,eva in the same game and you can play young solid or liquid if you look at the mgs database you can see “gulf war” part both liquid and snake fight in that war (of course different units ) imo that storyline is perfect for new mgs game

    • Big_Boss88

      It is good to have creative mind :D, but my brains are gonna overheat soon with all 10000 theorys I have read lol xD ! I enjoy reading them, but I do hope Big Boss is the only playable character. 🙂

  • Invader_skoodge

    The only time I’m giving up on a March release will be on March 31st at 11:59.59pm PST. But until then, my Hype is über alles!

  • Hanna-Mari

    Release Date: Never

  • asdasdfd

    I can’t wait any longer..what if i die in these days?

  • PrinceHeir

    Off topic, but Origa the singer who does the opening and insert songs from Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex series has passed away yesterday January 17, 2015 🙁

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-01-18/ghost-in-the-shell-singer-origa-passes-away/.83416

    • PrinceHeir

      I love putting her music in Ground Zeroes. Her vocals plus Yoko Kanno’s composition is just goddess! Fits the game really nicely during intense missions. This is my favorite music and i always use it when carrying chico to the helicopter

      • Big_Boss88

        This sounds so good!

        I need to put more Japanese/anime music to my custom play list. Even though I don’t understand every word, I still love this kind of music thx to anime.

        When Ps4 got that USB-mp3 support, I just added some random music from PC… and different game OST, like MGS songs + Nuclear. Need to get more anime songs and might as well get her music.

        • PrinceHeir

          I have all of the OST of the series(including Arise)

          I made my custom playlist which i think have the best songs fit for MGS.

          I’ll upload it if you want.

          • Big_Boss88

            Sure if you want to :). This has been one of my extraction music when saving Chico and others in GZ for quite some time now. Also one of my most favorite theme from games ;).

            Deus Ex got really awesome OST imo.

          • PrinceHeir

            Great taste!

            I love the OST!!! Their making a new one and hopefully they’ll announce it on E3 2015 🙂

          • Big_Boss88

            Thx XD! Yep I heard they are making a sequel, Deus Ex:Something. Don’t remember the exact name. Lets hope we see it on E3 :D!

          • PrinceHeir

            There’s no official name, but they announced a big project called Deus Ex Universe which have multiple games in a connected storyline(connected to Human Revolution)

            There’s also rumored about the next titled called “Human Divided” that possibly takes place in Japan

            http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=792557

            Can’t wait for this!!!!!!

    • Big_Boss88

      Oh maan another sad news ;(… that is awesome series too and love the OST.
      Rest in Peace :C …

    • No Place For Hayter

      Well that sucks, granted I only know of her through stand alone complex but she was really good, she was one of the vocalists that you take note of, though it would be hard for Yoko Kanno to choose a bad vocalist lol. It sucks to think that more people die than we realize, I hope she enjoyed herself it always sucks to not live a long good life, now time to go listen to some of her songs, good thing about my music that I like is that it is not going anywhere and so I won’t forget, I hope knowing that she had great songs that people loved (including myself) is enough so she can rest in peace.

      If one more person I know of dies in the next few days I’m going to call conspiracy >:|
