“The artificial arm got fixed? No it was a bug after all. lol”

Senior producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi asked people to be patient when it comes to the game’s release date.

If you’re expecting release day [at Kojima Station 32], please go to bed. I would utilize multi language media when I make a big announcement. Sorry but Hideo and KJP are working very hard to make it better quality everyday and night. It’s not just ready to announce yet. We love everyone so we don’t want to ship unfinished product so please please stay tune.

      • turkishgamer35

        this is a sad day for mgs fans 🙁 we need new theories and 4chan pics about april release date

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I was figuring probably around June but was hoping for March. There is just so much more tha needs done just on the publishers side. We really have no clue what all kojima needs. I mean it could be just a ploy so on the 31st of January we hear it because the Taipei game show is supposedly asias biggest game show or it could be truth and we wait more.
        I personally don’t mind , like I said Its probably my age an if it is to become hideo Kojimas last metal gear for him then I want it perfect.

      • Mini gear

        “the q1 release date was a smoke screen” “aghh they played us like a damn fiddle” they lied to us 🙁

        • decoyF0XX

          At this rate it might be 2016 🙁

      • Shalashaska

        So its still not a sure thing about taipei, right? we may still get a release date but it most probably will be june.. we should just forget about march :'(
        Now im just thinking that the release date announcement will be given in march and the release will be around after may.. perhaps june

        • Mini gear

          AS LONG AS THERES A DATE!! ive gone insane ( or nuclear) that’s what I think too because he addressed kojima station, a web show where you need good Japanese to follow

          • Shalashaska

            yea at taipei, he may just say “june, here you go”.. damn man.. the wait is killing me.. even when im playing amazing games like mass effect for the veryfirst time, i still cant help but wish for this :’/

          • Crazyboi_06

            No game is ambitious than Phantom Pain in this time

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Is say it’s probably 90% gonna be q2 2015. I’m very glad that Konami and investors letting Hideo just run with it. Gotta keep in mind that everyone is saying how TPP makes skyrim,GTA , and other big sandbox open world maps look like children’s toy’s. I’d say that they opened their mouths alil soon and are adding more to the map. Good thing because a big map don’t mean shit unless it’s packed to the brrim with content. Missions,unlocks, collectables, I’d be willing to bet my nads and sausage that this is what’s happening. Had todo more voice recording etc for new stuff being added. After Gz id say the game mechanics are done and flawless , so only thing that they could be doing is adding more?
          Just a educated guess. I am probably wrong heh

          • Big_Boss88

            Yeah it’s excellent that Kojima is the boss of all and can take all the time to perfect the game. Unlike with some other developers…

            The guy must be under some stress/pressure when everyone expect a lot from him, so lets just wait patiently while Kojima finishes the best game ever :).

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            he’s also the master of all trolls. he’s got it going, pulling all the stops. also given that they’re not ready to announce a release date yet, as a developer confirmed recently, I’d say a Q4 2015 release is more likely as most of the games released in the fall of their release year. we’ll be lucky if they even announce a release date at all at the Taipei Game Show or anytime soon.

    • Rikimaru

      Let me add this as background music for that gif…

      • turkishgamer35

        perfect

  • MrVux007

    DAMN YOU *COPY/PASTE*!!!! DAMN YOU!!! XD

  • Alberto Sánchez

    The last photo is curious. No scars, no ponytail, no prostetic arm, same suit as Ground Zereos… Something wrong is happening here.

    • MrVux007

      copy paste happened ….. : /

    • Yeah, Kojima said it’s a bug. But it looks like he still has a ponytail, and the scars are hard to tell.

    • RJRO

      They import the Skin directly from Ground Zeroes. So they should re-skinit ( I don´t now if that is an actual word) and add the scars, the horn and the biotech arm.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Was a bug I thought he said on Twitter?

      • Yes, he said the arm was a bug.

      • Alberto Sánchez

        Yes, he said “The artificial arm got fixed? No it was a bug after all. lol”

  • Mr.Pony

    We salute to your commitment to the quality Kojima. We will keep waiting for this masterpiece…

  • jack_coban

    If they’re still not ready to even announce a release-date… Well, then I expect the game to come out Q4 ’15.

  • Teunis Bosch

    Dont go there just dont this year i wana play tpp not next year

    • MrVux007

      dont worry the game will be out around June….i guarantee it 🙂

  • Big_Boss88

    “We love everyone so we don’t want to ship unfinished product so please please stay tune.”

    I love these guys ;D! I will wait forever if I have to. Other developers should take notice on how to properly finish a game before release.

    Waiting can be painful, but it’s coming this year so that’s good. GDC is pretty big game event imo so I think we might hear it there, was it held around March 2nd-6th. I hope it release in Q2, because March ain’t clearly happening anymore haha ;D. It was a fool’s hope, but it is good to have some :3.

    I just downloaded RE1 so hopefully it keep me occupied for some time.

    • Mr.Pony

      Wish that they would return RES to its roots

      • turkishgamer35

        same here resident evil 6 was a huge letdown good thing is looks like capcom finally listening to fans:Resident Evil 7 will return to survival horror, the genre the series once pioneered. http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3248772/resident-evil-7-will-return-to-its-roots-in-survival-horror/

        • Mr.Pony

          If they would drop the whole partner system thing it would be nice, curious to see how Revelations 2 will go down

          • turkishgamer35

            not gonna lie didn’t like the episode based system on Revelations 2 but thankfully game looks nothing like 6 and gonna buy it but just like you said ” they would drop the whole partner system thing” after mgs resident evil my favorite series hope they bring back good old resident evil with 7

          • Mr.Pony

            when i saw the episode thing i taught for a second that i was looking at a Tell-Tale RES version, i will play it once the episodes are all released, not a big fan of playing it in parts either. hoping to get virus epidemic zombie swarm feeling that was on the first games, none of that Bio-Monster crap like the RES6 Boss fights, i laughed and laughed at those

          • turkishgamer35

            psychomantis!!! “Tell-Tale RES version” actually am gonna give that example but didn’t remember the name lol am gonna do that too waiting until all episodes released and buy it didn’t even buy resident 6 my friend have the game and we beat together and yeah those Bio-Monster crap was ridiculous

          • Jonny McLaurine

            You realize future iterations of MGS could be episodic. Hideo has stated that he likes and wants to try that business model. Reason he said that it’s good for developer money wise and the consumer can actually get the product cheaper. I would be down with episodes of mg1 and mg2 mgs1-mgs4

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I played all them games to but Im pretty sure this silent hills will be kinda like old school resident evil. Not having much ammo and having to run.
        Though also imo resident evil started to lose its following . So like most games they made it easier for new generation.
        For instance I was reading a article last night about TPP with the reflex ability to be turned off and on. I agree on the realism of a no instant alert. Though I still don’t use reflex mode and have 100% it in the first three days Gz came out. Now guys were bitching about no instant alarm? I say turn reflex off then. Then the guy says it to hard to aim? So he wants it hard but then wants it easy.
        That’s the issue these game designers are working on trying to make thier games appeal to more than just the die hard fans. Which I gree with. Anyways kind of got off topic but you see the changing of the res series to be more appealing to others is the same as the cock hat! Thank you

        • Mr.Pony

          It makes (financial mostly) sense to appeal to vaster audiences when it comes to makes games easier ( Dark souls was refreshing because it brought back the die-repeat routine of most games in the 90’s). In the case of instant alarm it only makes sense that there is none. A guard screams, if a nearby guard hears it, he will investigate but if shots are fired, off goes the alarm. It makes sense. Too easy? Then as you said just turn off the reflex, it will things much more fast paced in terms of reaction time. In this case I’m support this lack of instant alarm, it is more realistic. But there is a big difference when comparing MGS with RES, because MGS always stayed on track, the game is still a stealth game and it prizes the player by playing it that way, while RES went from Survival-Horror to Action packed guns blazing game, the whole “spirit” of the game is gone by making it more accessible.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            True I agree. Yes MGS has always been stealth. REs was always survival horror. Though original res was not approachable to most gamers because of its hardcore nature and slow pace. Original MGS was same way meanin as time went on they made it easier. Only difference is RES changes thier game mechanics and core of the game to do thier change compared to MGS that just made some extra things to make it easier for casuals and hardcore challenge gamers were able to keep the original Playstyles for those who wants hardcore gaming challenges.

    • turkishgamer35

      game looks great gonna download next week enjoy your game man

      • Big_Boss88

        I will :D, although the bald zombies are gonna own me so badly lol. Enjoy it too when you get :).

        • turkishgamer35

          thanks man 🙂 my problem isn’t zombies its spiders i hate them!!!! (or scared:)

    • PrinceHeir

      Just preordered the PS4 version yesterday just to get the digital PS3 as a bonus XD

      I STILL haven’t opened the ASIAN LE version i imported last November. I should get to it!

  • Venom_Snake_BB

    I’m still thinking that TPP will come out in May.But there are so many things to finish like MGO3,VO sessions,debug sessions,gameplay tests and so many things but my heart says that the game will come out in May.And i am hopefull on Taipei Game Show,maybe not a Release date but maybe a short trailer.Also I am thinking that the release date will be announced GDC or PAX.If they not announce it on GDC or PAX there will be no hope for May,but for now i am just thinking that game will come out 5.5.2015 just like @Venom_Sina

    • Big_Boss88

      Me too. I can survive the waiting, but I just hope it don’t go beyond E3. Because then if so, in E3 we see yet something cool of the game, another trailer or demo and kinda I don’t wanna see too much. Q3 or Q4 would feel to be pretty late time for release so I put my faith in May too :).

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Kojima is a troll. He will never show you too much after the mgs4 mishap with showing big boss on accident.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Guys and gals. No matter what he shows you it won’t spoil shit. Boone has ever deduced what’s going on in a MGS game and he always shows a million trailers. Hell during mgs2 he had whole world convinced you played as snake whole game. Trust me whatever he shows . He picked it for a reason. Plus if yall are really worried about don’t watch the damn new trailers. I want to see info till they release game.

    • turkishgamer35

      agreed my prediction is may or june

    • Venom_Sina

      Yes,my friend.As I said before,I think they will show a translated chinese version of TPP in Taipei’15 with the old trailers,nothing more.Then They will announce the “long-awaited release date” in GDC’15 with a new trailer that filled with mysteries!!!!Maybe V/V/201V,maybe june,we don’t know exactly.And I don’t think they release the game in Q3 or Q4,because Kojima-san and his team are working on the game 24/7.I think this means the game is near completion.I hope they don’t go for Q3 or Q4.I will die before I get the chance to play this masterpiece!!!!!

      • Jonny McLaurine

        It will be a new trailer. He knows and they have already showed trailers in Chinese and Japanese languages on the net. I don’t think he could get away without showing some MGO game play and a feature in mgs TPP single player. They got 1 hour so you figure on 15 min to 30 minute talk and 45 min to 30 min trailer

        • Venom_Sina

          Yeah,You’re right.I hope they show us new footage.Don’t know why,but something inside me keeps telling me that Kojima-san is gonna play Us like a damn fiddle,again!!!and I don’t RIKE it!!!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            That is 100% logical. Asia has been trying to get TGS on the map for some time , we know hideo loves Asia , so it very well could be release. I mean this hype has been good for the game because compared to other MGS and mg titles a lot of new people will be playing this. P.s
            Also why I think MGS tpp hasent been called mgs5 because it’s rewriting the saga. A man can hope. I want more than just the most hardcore fans to understand while story.

      • turkishgamer35

        agreed olso do not forget Q4 full of big games like call of duty,halo5,tomb raider and uncharted 4 both sony and microsoft gonna do a huge campaign for their biggest exclusive games like bundles,ads and if konami release the game Q4 that would be hurt sales may or june is perfect for mgs 5 last year watch dogs did the same thing and game sold 9 million

        • Venom_Sina

          Yes.They should consider big titles you mentioned.They are bad for the business!!!

    • decoyF0XX

      I think a 30-minute gameplay video will keep me happy. Not hopeful for a release date, odds are against it. Just show us more crazy shit to make us laugh Kojima.

  • Cipher

    So we’ll Patiently wait … for that fateful day …. it’s not far away

  • ElAlca
  • PrinceHeir
  • Venom_Snake_BB

    Wait…WHAT?Also who don’t who is this guy he is the guy at GDC 2012,fake ”Moby Dick Studios” boss anyway what does it mean?And it is posted on 21th December of 2014.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Probably the time we get TPP Release date announced of the first MGO3 BETA!

    • Big_Boss88

      I forgot this completely, but I wonder what happens then.

    • RJRO

      Or It could be some heavy trolling.Keep your guard up.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yes Kojima Ogre might be playing us like a damn guitar.

    • Shalashaska

      Wasnt this regarded to be fake ? i heard some people say its fake and the account was a fake one etc etc etc ?

    • Big_Boss88

      I still remembering watching this for first time lol, Kojima is such a master. The whole Moby Dick Studios, paying some swedish dude to confuse us…and planning all this MGSV reveal long time beforehand with Geoff. And then we got the PT=Silent Hills reveal too. Kojima is such genius :).

      “GDC will answer all questions about the game” yea right lol, and funny ending :P.

      Also funny thing I remember some people believing, that this guy is CGI and not a real person, and Ishmael we saw on TPP trailer was real and not CGI lol. Or maybe they were right… Fox Engine rocks.

    • César H. Sandoval

      That TW acount was made by some anon in 4chan.

      Don’t believe his lies.

  • jsizzler

    people burn themselves out by their own over expectations.. just do other shit people come on

  • MichaelPayneV

    A Bug, so this means that the Sneaking suit should have the Prosthetic Arm Ponytail, The Horn and The Scars, good to know.

  • well there it is youe GZ special content… GZ snake as skin or something… I hope you can use the hornless head with the rest of the camos but I doubt it…
    anyways MGSv shall be a nice Christmas present since the thing might be released in winter…

    keep your hopes low so you won’t be dissapointed

  • Golgari

    People should stop talking about the release date. I’m glad that they are working on the game.
    Sandbox is a hard concept and requires million of testing. I’m ready even for a Q4 release. I’m ready even for the 2016 release as long as the game is perfect and Kojima’s next masterpiece. I can wait.

    I don’t want it to be broken. Look at the AC:Unity that is made by 1000 people. 2 years of nothing but a broken mess. Ubisoft Montreal is made of studios that don’t even know each other and working from different countries.

    MGSV:TPP should be perfect.

    • Yeah we should applaud them for taking the time they need. They are working hard but won’t release it until it’s done.

      • Big_Boss88

        That’s how games should be done.

      • MichaelPayneV

        That’s why Kojima Prod. and Rockstar North are in my opinion The Best Developers of this Generation.

        PS: This may upset A LOT of people, but i don’t think Naughty Dog can be considered The Best Developer for the simple FACT that they have no Multiplatform Experience, their only work is done on 1 Platform per Generation, and in my opinion if you wanna be The Best Developer, then you have to be as good at Multiplatform Development as you are with your Exclusives, otherwise you are just a Great Developer that made Great Games, not The Best Developer, in order to be The Best Developer, you have to be a Complete Developer.

        That being said i’ll say it again, Kojima Prod and Rockstar North are The Best Developers because the are the only True Complete Developers of this Generation.

        • Disagree with that, it’s about how good their creations are, Naughty Dog and Nintendo both make exclusive games but they are among the best in terms of quality.

          • MichaelPayneV

            They have Great Games Developed, but that’s not what defines who is The Best Developer, but the Variety of Games and the Platforms you can make for, so i think that having no problem Developing a Game for more then 1 Platform Per Generation makes you a better Developer then 1 that makes for 1 Platform Per Generation only, that are not limited nor forced to downgrade their Game, in other words every Good Developer who is Developing for 1 Platform Per Generation only with Direct Financial support from Sony/Microsoft (Produced by Sony/Microsoft) can do a Great Game.

            I Respect your opinion, but i still think that Kojima Prod is a better Developer then Naughty Dog for the simple FACT that Multiplatform requires a lot more work and talent for development, compared to making a Game for 1 Platform only, but when i’ll see Naughty Dog do a Multiplatform Game and have it as optimized on all the platforms that game is on as on the Sony Platorm, only then they will have my applause.

          • cardboardbox engineer

            Porting a game to different platforms is a developer job, but creating the game and models and all the work is a completely different aspect of being a developer, by your logic all those classic games(ps1-retro era) can be dismissed simply because they were not available on different platforms, would you have considered kojima pro. a bad developer if mgs3 was only available on ps2?(i know it’s your fav) come to think of it different company did the porting on that…… hmmm

          • MichaelPayneV

            No no no, that’s not what i said, i was talking about Developers, not Games.

          • MrVux007 .

            So you are saying this from your rich game development experiance? thank you for sharing this with us Mr.game developer…..your continued nagging about console developers makes your fanboy hole bigger and bigger…..keep digging that hole soldier,carry on! :3

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i’m saying this is as nothing more than my opinion.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          A lot of people say the new generation of play station is not complete until a uncharted game. Uncharted like MGS always brings innovative features to new games. NAUGHTY DOG is probably one of the BEST out there. TLAU – probably top ten games ever made. Story, character etc. uncharted always makes other games look bad because a studio may put out 3 games to naughty dogs one game but naughty dog sells more and has more respect. Thank you

          • decoyF0XX

            Uncharted? Innovative features? Lol.

          • mikeyyytexas

            i’d say story yeah, they have amazing stories, great experiences

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yes graphics wise. Graphics engine. Just like uncharted 3 on PS3. That just truth there.

          • decoyF0XX

            Okay. Graphics wise, yes. They were some of the best looking games. Other than that, nada.

          • MichaelPayneV

            To be honest Uncharted 4 doesn’t seem innovative at all, the 15 minutes Demo wasn’t impressive.

    • MichaelPayneV

      If it Comes Late 2015/Early 2016, then it better be not just Great, but PERFECT, and it better finally have Tessellation, it just hurts my eyes seeing the Wonderful Lighting, Textures and Animations along side Last Gen Low Polygon Models, it just stops the Game from looking Photorealistic, Tessellation would make it look above ANY New-Gen Game like The Division, The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4 by miles.

      • mikeyyytexas

        Come on dude, enough with the tessalation… I fully support y’all getting TPP on PC but I’m sure KJP will do their best to come out with the best product they can for y’all… I’m all for your opinion on what should be changed but most of your comments I read are about this… Just tone it down a bit, yeah bud? Thanks

        • MichaelPayneV

          Maybe is because i’m a Metal Gear FAN and not a Metal Gear FAN-BOY, and because i want this Basic DX11 feature , especially since The Game is DX11 Only, so why not take advantage of that and add this goddamn feature to the game that will make the game so much prettier, that will make it look like a True New-Gen Game
          http://international.download.nvidia.com/geforce-com/international/images/metal-gear-solid-v-ground-zeroes/metal-gear-solid-v-ground-zeroes-screen-filtering-depth-of-field-cut-scenes-002-on-640px.jpg

          Look at the Mirror Edges, how none of you has even a little problem with this is 2014/2014 is beyond me

          • mikeyyytexas

            alright then metal gear FAN… Go project your thoughts and concerns at the right people, and maybe you’ll be able to shut up about what BETTER be in the game…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Which i did, i did send this Suggestion Via Email to Kojima Prod, and also asking on Steam why the feature isn’t in GZ, so thank you, but i already did it.

            Now why i said it here as well, to let Kojima know that hopefully i’m not The Only one wanting this feature, and to see how many people think like me.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Actually computer sales for this game probably won’t even add up to 50% sales. So why waste time adding a feature that only a small percent will get to use. If I was a developer I would cater my game to where most of the money is coming from and then port it where needed. Since it’s made for console and ported to pc? I could be wrong and I didn’t look up real numbers but seems logical to me. Just be happy because you get to play on pc. Other than that anything extra is lukky

          • MichaelPayneV

            Because if you’re bringing you Games to PC, then you should know that the Standards are Higher when it comes to PC Gaming, therefore not including a Basic yet Valuable feature like Tessellation is insulting to The Community, and is because by Default EVERYONE who can run MGSV can enable Tessellation due to the Obligatory DX11, so it wouldn’t be a Small Percent.

            “Just be happy because you get to play on pc. Other than that anything extra is lukky”

            No, that Mentality is wrong, i consider that if i pay 60$, tha i should get The Best out of my Platform, that The Game should have the latest features implemented as an option, because 1 thing you seem to forget is that Games on PC live Longer then on Consoles, therefore MGSV would still be played on PC even 10 years from now like GTA: San Andreas is, so if you are the same Kojima Prod. from 2005, you would want your Game to Age well, like MGS3 did.

            I just want 10 years from now to look at MGSV and to see it exactly how i see now MGS3 when i look at it, a Masterpiece that has aged more then well, is that too much to ask?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Ok Michael your entitled to everything because you pay 60$ like us. You deserve a better product that anyone. Choke on your pc because I spent about 60$ for ps4 xb1 and pc

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i want a 60$ Game to take advantages of most of today’s Gaming Technology and have them as Option, because as i said, 1 thing you forget is that PC Games live longer, and the MGS History so far has shown that 1 of Kojima priorities with they Games is to have them age well, take MGS3 for Example, that Game is still playable today and still looks good, even now in 2015.

            Now do you want MGSV 10 years from now to look like Crap, or to like MGS3 does now?

            Answer just with Yes or No, 1 more word and i’ll ignore you comment completely.

          • MichaelPayneV

            PS: The Game is on 5 Platforms, so it doesn’t have to represent 50% of the sales, but 20%.

            Next time do the Math Correctly.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Haha well considering its not even 20% since they just released sales info. Like I said I didn’t know numbers you dumb fuck. Pc has strong sales but far from 20%
            Which means will they go an add a bunch of extras just for pc? Doubt it. I own it for all next gen and pc.
            So next time don’t be a dickhead. Just shows how ignorant and prideful you are to say they better do this because of this. Any time you want to be an ass to me. That’s fine but I’ll be the one to tell you how much you are wrong in your entitlemnt. Oh and I know my grammar sucks. I’m a fucking boilermaker and not a teacher dick

          • ominonarepus

            I’m not really worried about that. Kojima/Shinkawa always gave that “squared” shape to all the arts in all the saga. It’s like a “Brand mark”

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, just no, this is not a “Brand Mark”, the way Snake moves is a “Brand Mark”, not Low Polygons Models, that shouldn’t be a “Brand Mark” when that Mirror is clearly supposed to be round.

          • ominonarepus

            Could be… I really don’t care about it 🙂

            I’m playing, again, GZ on my little-lovely-cute PS3, and you know what? Maybe the sky doesn’t look photoralistic as does on PS4 but… man, I love it… just because how’s it feels, the “flow” that makes BB transitions so smooth, the fact (it’s a fact) that Kojima takes the best of the games I enjoi most this generation (Far Cry, Uncharted, GTA’S, even the last Splinter Cell) and match them into one game of my favorite saga…because TPP make go my hype “F” high again, a feeling not felt since Red Dead Redemption.

            I Don’t care about the graphics, as long it makes me have a good time playing it.

            Unless is broken like Unity. (o_O)

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well i don’t necessarily care about the Graphics either, but it just gets me out of the Experience when i see round having edges on a Game like MGSV, it just bugs me that Kojima Pord. doesn’t fix it with a goddamn simple feature that isn’t demanding in terms of Graphical Memory.

            Is just the Principle, not the Polygons themselves.

          • ominonarepus

            It’s a new engine, their own engine, just give them time 😉

          • MichaelPayneV

            I do, i’m just being hard on them to help them, to let them know what would improve the way MGSV Looks, and the good news is that Fox Engine supports Tessellation as seen in Silent Hills, that Game has Tessellation, so they should put it in MGSV as well, especially since the Game is before the Polishing State.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            You can’t tell him anything dude. It’s michael the game developer who has and knows all skills pc related. Kojima couldn’t afford him. So he sits on MGI telling us what’s ez and hard for kojima

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Unity has problems but a complete broken mess is pushing It alil far. Yea some things need some attention . Far from a broken game

  • MichaelPayneV

    Is it just me or looks like “Face Camo” option hasn’t appeared in any of the TPP Gameplays?

  • vic boss

    I’m glad they are taking their time , I was watching the african gameplay again and I saw a bug, not a big deal but I noticed it so is good they are taking all the time they want. Anyways before TPP comes out and after they’ve shown the release date , I’m gonna play snake eater, peace walker and ground zeroes again. And long after I beat TPP i’m gonna play MGS4 again just for the ending speech of big boss.
    http://youtu.be/6eeU3Ym6gOw

    • Big_Boss88

      Yea it’s good they are taking time and best games take time. Waiting sucks but it’s also good. Best cure for all this waiting is to play other games or find something else to do :).

      Btw amazing video :), Kefka rules. Love the Interstellar track and it fits well with it.

    • MichaelPayneV

      If you are talking about the Grass Bug, i saw it, and hope they fix it.

      • vic boss

        Yeah that’s the one, right after the enemy helicopter shows up and starts shooting.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Then is not the one i saw, what i saw was some Big Grass acting as Hologram with no collision.

  • MichaelPayneV

    People, let’s wait have some patience and let Kojima finish the game without Requesting every day a Release Date, let’s not rush them, i can wait, i will play something else to forget about it, so to all impatient people, please…
    http://youtu.be/GF8aaTu2kg0

    • No Place For Hayter

      Don’t worry, everybody just superficially wants a release date, but they all understand why they don’t have one yet and are willing to wait for the finished product, they just stand can’t wait for it and thus they have to keep asking despite they know it will not change when it will come they just want them to know that they are desperately waiting for one, I doubt that people complaining for a release date will change Kojimas mind.

      Now I am just waiting for a sarcastic response about why someone actually needs a release date and that they don’t care about the product itself, lol.

      • MichaelPayneV

        True, true.

  • Batzi
    • decoyF0XX

      Do you know if this from Alphaville? If it is, then it’s a great spolier for me since I’ve not watched the movie fully yet lol.

      • Batzi

        sorry dude. I chose a random gif xD

        • decoyF0XX

          Haha okay.

  • Mini gear

    I give up…

    • Big_Boss88

      We need medic here, if casualties are coming. Don’t give up!

      • Mini gear

        march is basically gone all i have is a little bit of hope… “why are we here, just to suffer?”

        • Mr.Pony

          “Don’t you die on me dammit!”

        • Big_Boss88

          Yea it’s gone :(, I know the phantom pain hurts… /hug

          I’ve made up my mind that I’ll not care about release date so much anymore, because I know TPP is releasing at some point this year anyway. Wishing for it too much only destroy your spirit. Been doing that long enough already since E3 or Gamescom I think lol :D.

          I just wanna see more of the game now :3 so Taipei and GDC looking forward to them.

          • Mini gear

            I just hope not much more spoilers now. tpp is the best game ive waited for to me so its tough not knowing how long to wait. I could wait all year, all I need is a season. I guess ill mess around with dying light and immediately head back to GZ. any games coming out you wanna try?

          • Mr.Pony

            the witcher 3 is second after the TPP for me

          • Big_Boss88

            There are some, but don’t remember all at the moment :). RE1 this month and Order1886 next and Bloodborne then etc. There is about 1 new game for each month I’m really interested in. Dying Light looks also cool but was it coming this month or next?

            The Witcher 3 and Bloodborne are some two games besides TPP, that I look forward to most. Too bad TW3 was delayed though, but in a way that’s good. Broken games are never fun.

          • Mini gear

            good list of games, dying light is out on the 27th this month

          • Big_Boss88

            Awesome thx! Will definitely get that then :D. Anything to help with this waiting.

          • decoyF0XX

            I wasnt going to get a PS4 till TPP was released but lol at me. I’ll probably get one to play Bloodborne and The Witcher 3 now. Those two games look great!

    • Big_Boss88

      Hope this song boost you up Mini. Push waiting to the limit.

      • Mr.Pony

        This playing when Morpho arrives at the LZ, *puts on Kaz sunglasses*

        the waiting has no limits 🙂

  • JHuang

    It seems like Ken-ichiro Imaizumi is telling everyone to shut the F up about asking them all the time when is the release date. Like what are we asking here the best game in 2015? because that takes time or are we asking for shit/buggy/broken game ? because if we are asking for shitty game might as well give the game to Ubisoft

  • César H. Sandoval

    Maybe they should update GZ with a couple of extra ops just for people to play around in the meantime, I’m happy waiting for the release date, but I understand that a lot of people may be getting too frisky about it now.

    • decoyF0XX

      Same thing I’m thinking.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      I would be all for this. Plus I thought they would of to make right with people who paid the 30$ when it was released. Though I knew what I was buying and figures they were trying to get some revenue to keep working on the TPP. So I had no probs buying the prelude to play before TPP.

  • In light of all the people almost wanting to kill them self because of the sad news, I shall stand a a bright shining star, and remind everyone of some of the good:

      I hope so, my birthday is in June.

        No sorry my master, but it has to be May. Because my birthday in that month >:D…

  • Zlatan

    JESUS! You people are annoying as fuck! you don’t fucking get huh? the holy moments happen now! they’ll do spectacular voice recordings once again and keep up working on a masterpiece. and you all will be honored to play it when it is out. it comes out when its that masterpiece. not before. stop crying, babies!

    • Kol Leqejza

      i’m with you!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Sarcasm? 0.o

        • No Place For Hayter

          Question? Zombie?

    • Big_Boss88

      Actually most of us do get it and know MGS games are always masterpieces, that deserves all the wait it needs. But you think everyone thinks or feels like you do?

      Also no need to be rude really, as we see enough that kind of comments in youtube and prefer them not here.

      ues!

  • Guest

    Am i the only one who noticed that the Big Boss of this picture is before the events of Ground Zeroes?

    • Liquid25

      sorry about the pic.i thought it was for profile.i mean the pic in the article…

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, you’re not, because this is before Ground Zeroes, more exactly 11 years before Ground Zeroes.

  • Liquid25

    Am i the only one who noticed that this pic is before Ground Zeroes?

    • Ravenous

      From what I understood of Kojima’s text for that pic, it’s a bug or oversight of kind, nothing more…but it IS strange that he would bother posting it knowing full well that it’s a bug.

      If it’s not a bug it might be from the very beginning of TPP, as in before the event that leaves BB in a coma?

      • Liquid25

        Yes.Let’s say it’s a bug.But it’s not from TPP.Big Boss has no scars and he’s wearing the MSF uniform. And it’s not from Ground Zeroes as we know it.We are not able to see the helicopter from this angle.So what?

        • Ravenous

          If you go back and watch the GDC trailer for Ground Zeroes (I think) you can clearly see footage where BB has gotten the wounds from Paz exploding, but he’s awake and standing in the doorway of an intact and flying helicopter.

          The same footage was nowhere to be seen in GZ, but the wounds are identical, so in my opinion: the only logical conclusion would be that we’re just being led to believe that the two heli’s crash as a cliffhanger to end the game on, and in TPP we’ll get to see how the heli’s manage to barely avoid eachother. And that leaves a big gaping hole in the GZ>Coma-9-years idea.

          And that leaves BB without any significant scars, with both arms and no horn at the start of TPP 🙂

          All of that is ofcourse only valid if Kojima didn’t decide to change the storyline around or to just drop that footage from the games entirely 😉

          Interesting to speculate in what the cause of the coma and scars will be if my observations turn out to be correct though Oo

          • Liquid25

            Yeah that makes sense.That’s what i wanted to point out.That it is something we didn’t know from the facts that we had.So either Snake gets crippled after GZ or it’s something before GZ.Maybe a dream during the coma? 😉

          • Ravenous

            Could very well be, we’ll never know for sure with kojima, untill the game comes out 🙂

          • Liquid25

            Yeah you never know what kind of trolling Kojima is preparing 😉

          • Mini gear

            it looked like it went straight into big bosses heli. maybe its unused footage like ocelots original tpp intro

          • Ravenous

            If you look closely at the “crash” scene, I think it looks like Morpho 1 is tilted towards its left side, you can see much much more ocean than sky , and the angle you see the other heli from makes it look like they are heading straight towards eachother, BUT the heli being tilted that much to it’s side, and the angle on the other heli makes me believe that Morpho 1 has more altitude.

            One scenario could be that they have a close call, but both keep flying. Another could be that the other heli’s main rotor collides with the landing gear on Morpho 1, and goes down while Morpho regains control.

            But with the old GDC-footage in mind, I don’t see how any other helicopters could have gotten away from Mother Base AND flown in the correct direction to fish Kaz and BB out of the water after a crash.
            I can’t see why Skullface and co. would just hand over BB to some hospital, and neither would Cipher, so my belief is that there will be no actual crash, and that footage from a trailer Kojima edited himself won’t be thrown out of the game on a whim 😉

          • MichaelPayneV

            I think that the Scene from GDC will be the start of TPP, and that the Chopper we see a Bloody Big Boss in is taking him to the nearest Hospital, and that due to blood lost just near the Hospital he gets unconscious and enters in the 9 years Sleep Comma.

          • Javier Sosa

            And the horn? I think that the scene it’s from the start of tpp. But then something happen and snake loses his arm and gets his horn. The horn it’s what takes he to the coma.

          • MichaelPayneV

            The horn is a Piece of The Bomb that the Body is starting to Reject, which is what probably woke him up in 1984.

            EDIT: As for The Arm, that was Post Accident, the Hospital is probably owned by Cipher and watched by Skull Face, so when Big Boss wakes Skull Face is announced about it, so he sends the XOF Unity to make sure Big Boss doesn’t do something stupid, but Cipher also find out about it so he sends Phychomantis and Ocelot to take Big Boss in Custody before Skull Face, so Big Boss is in the Middle.

          • NakedSnake85

            i often read your comments. but what makes you think that zero actually wants to hurt snake? propably at the end of phantom pains big boss either re-joins the patriots for a short time or hes making peace with zero. maybe with true intentions and maybe not. he must be able to create foxhound IN america.

          • MichaelPayneV

            What? He doesn’t, that exactly what i said, that Cipher has send Psycho Mantis and Ocelot to make sure that XOF doesn’t kill him, and Skull Face send XOF to make sure that he doesn’t escape Skull Face before interrogating him personal about Cipher.

          • MichaelPayneV

            PS: Foxhound was Created in 1970 if i recall correctly, so he doesn’t have to make peace with Zero, During PW Foxhound existed.

          • NakedSnake85

            it was after 1972 that foxhound enter the oficial military faction of the us army. either way i dont think that zero was unawre of that. But in 1990s big boss was in charge of foxhound. we agree about mantis but we can never be sure about ocelots role in all of this. and also miller? im not sure that miller is what it seems to be. in any case we are making guesses only. we are not sure that skullface is raiding the hospital we are not sure who exactly were the survivors of the crash.. big boss miller and? we are missing a piece of the puzzle. there is definately one more, i insist from day one that the other person is the medic

          • MichaelPayneV

            “That Must be Chico”

            1 More thing, Foxhound has entered the Official Military Faction of the US Army 1 tear later, 1971.

          • NakedSnake85

            well yeah it may. but.. 2 clues.. the medic has Sutherlands voice. ishmael too.. kojima hides the face of medic on purpose that could easilly could have done adding a mask and he hides the face of ishmael too. snake in phantom pain seems and feels different and not older at all after 9 years! ocelots AND millers behaviour is weird too.. put those nine years behind and return AS big boss. well idk too many weird things. oh kojima

          • MichaelPayneV

            The Medic, Both The Medic and the Flaming Volgin are Big Boss, they are his 2 Parts, The Ration (hm, Tasty…not that Ration, but you get it) and The Madness, The Accomplishments , and The Regrets, The Good and The Evil, which is pretty obvious when “The Medic” is nowhere to be seen in GZ Credits, and also when he also looks just like Big Boss did in MGS3.
            pic.twitter.com/xjGEVRajcG

          • decoyF0XX

            I insist that the hospital is full of clones of The Medic. At the end of the initial Moby Dick reveal trailer (someone posted a link above) one of the soldiers points his gun at Snake and then the trailer ends before we know if he shoots Snake or not. I think the soldiers don’t even know who Snake is, they’re just there to kill the Medic clones, and that’s why Ishmael covers his face, so Snake doesn’t realize that he looks just like the others in the hospital.

          • decoyF0XX

            The Medic seems to be very very important to TPP’s story.

          • Mini gear

            now that you showed me the angle, yeah it could’ve went higher and not of crashed but with a good amount of damage

          • NakedSnake85

            thats because big boss never lost an arm never had these scars etc. The medic took the fool blast and i insist that HE is venom snake during the phantom pain

          • Big_Boss88

            This is like exactly 100% my thoughts and you wrote it well ;). Kojima is playing everyone, like he did with MGSV reveal and SH. There is more to GZ ending than meets the eye.

            Also Ravenous the both choppers, 1 taking from MB at GZ ending with Snake and GDC trailer one, they got the same number too 794. So it gives a hint too that they dodge it.

    • turkishgamer35

      no its just a bonus if you have ground zeroes this outfit unlock in the TPP here: anyone that purchases GROUND ZEROES will be able to unlock exclusive content within the game to carry-over to THE PHANTOM PAIN. Prisoners of war and VIPs rescued in GROUND ZEROS will be added to the Mother Base staff in THE PHANTOM PAIN,”character skins will also be able to be carried over.” http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=12825 you can visit camp omega too http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=16518

      • Mini gear

        I wonder if camp omega will have any relevance in tpp if we go there, or if big boss and everyone else pay no mind while there

        • turkishgamer35

          really no idea my friend kojima said you can visit omega camp always think just like act 4 in the mgs4 but he olso said:There’s something of a big feature involved. It’s never been done in the games industry before. So I can’t go into detail about it, but I think when you experience it for yourselves you’ll be surprised. It’s something that’s only possible through video games.”

          • Mini gear

            I hope I live to see when tpp comes out, ill look like zero by then

          • turkishgamer35

            don’t worry man 🙂 we all waiting this game since announced and gonna play in this year hopefully may or june

      • Liquid25

        Yes that’s very plausible.

    Based on my intuition (and my obsession with having this song be part of MGSV Soundtrack) i think that the → 1984 song after “Sins of The Father” and “Nuclear” will be “Burnin’ In The Third Degree”, and that the Trailer will be showing Big Boss looking for someone in a 80’s Club while wearing the Leather Jacket from the GDC 2013 Trailer.

    • NakedSnake85

      thats exactly the physical state that BB was in when he fell into the coma. same injuries. no horn both arms

      • Ravenous

        Then where does the horn come from? You can see the bulge on the bandages around his head in all of the hospital footage from TPP trailers, so it has to happen BEFORE the coma…unless standard hospital policy includes jamming a huge piece of debris into coma-patients skulls 😉

        And as you can see in the hospital scene from GZ’s endcredits, there is no sign of any debris in BB’s skull Oo

        • MichaelPayneV

          From his Head, the “Horn” Is already in BB Head, is just that is so deep you can’t see it.

          • No Place For Hayter

            That is what it will probably turn out being but I’m going to stick with “If something that big was inside your head you would be dead end of story no and or buts about it”

            Though I have stopped thinking about it because trying to piece it together always makes it fall apart so thinking about it hurts my brian, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Indeed, it hurts your brain like the horn hurts BB’s Brain.

    • Silverius

      This scene bothers me so much to this day for the same reasons. It just doesn’t add up.

    • Javier Sosa

      The sky it’s a mistake they had in the trailer.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Thanks for the correction.

    • Big_Boss88

      They don’t crash at the ending of GZ, but something else horrible will happen that puts them into the hospital.
      GZ end in that clever spot to make players think they crash and is the reason for coma etc, but instead it don’t go like that. Well this is what i think, thx to this beautiful scene. I wonder though what does Big Boss look at when he seem to be shocked.

      • ominonarepus

        I agree with you. I am not a professional on maritime rescues but if the helicopter is shot or destroyed, or whatever within BB inside,he surely would fall with all the junk at sea and it will be a chaos find the body, and this assuming that it’s not seriously injured

        • Jonny McLaurine

          He may not be in coma because of crash. At end of Gz they collide in helicopters. No fucking way they coulda dodged it. Rotors would collide and they going in the sea

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea maybe they don’t dodge it completely. Some think they will barely manage to avoid crash. Crashing into it does make sense kinda. But then again I don’t know how they survive from that and get to hospital or explain that 1 scene.

            Also we don’t even know how much stuff happens after GZ ending and before they end up in the hospital. It might not be so fast as some think.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I think that they don’t Crash, but that what puts Big Boss in to The Comma is a Huge Blood Loss from the Bomb, and that this Scene is Morpho taking them to the Hospital.

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmmm maybe :). Our thousand questions will be answered finally this year.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hopefully.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Dude they crashed. They slam into another helicopter. It basically comes right through big boss helicopter door

        • Big_Boss88

          Well what I saw in the end of GZ, is Big Boss laying on the floor, chopper spins out of control, then screen turns to the door and we see the other chopper coming right at us. Then screen flashes to white and it ends there.

          Do we actually see them crash? No. Can we guess it happens? Well yes when the enemy chopper is in front of us.. But if they crash straight into it like “BAMMMM”, then I would guess the choppers fall down to the ocean or explode etc. Not sure could they survive from that or how then get to the hospital.

          How would you explain this Michael’s image then when Big Boss is on the chopper with blood and what looks like to me slight burn marks, from the bomb? Because it is the only explanation I can think of, or then I am missing something. I’ve never been in a chopper crash myself so don’t know how rough it can get lol. But I like to think they heavily collide to it but manage to stay on the air…or something like that :).

          Also in the upper image scene, there is number 794 seen on the chopper side. It is the same number as in GZ ending cutscene chopper 794. Watch the scene where Big Boss is escaping with Kaz to it, while shooting enemy (when the MSF soldier get shot). The number is there. It’s same chopper still flying :D.

          • Venom_Snake_BB

            And in TGS 2014 gameplay they say you can use ”both” side of helicopter maybe Big Boss opened the other door and jumped out of the helicopter it sounds like impossible but he is an acrobatic person he can do that very very quick.Kojima didn’t say the coma is beacuse of crash.they said just 9 years of coma it can be any time in 1975.I don’t have theory about what can Big Boss got in to coma but i don’t think it because of crash.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I don’t know about the coma. I just know they crashing. Willing to bet that is first set piece explosion in TPP intro cutscene

          • Jonny McLaurine

            It blanks out when it’s so close. No way could of dodged it. They crashing. I’ll bet you rl$$

          • Big_Boss88

            But what about the number 794? It is the same in GZ ending cutscene chopper and that TPP scene, 794 too. Same chopper still flying in my opinion. Stop the GZ ending video I posted at 2:32, can clearly be seen there on the front side.

          • gerber

            I think there will be some mgs2 style mind fucks about this whole crash/coma. I mean there is so many suspicious things about GZ. Snake’s bald shadow? Hiding Medic’s face, while he is voiced by Sutherland? Miller retconning final ending of Peace Walker? (“The rain was coming down just as hard the day we met Paz. “I only want peace for my country.” I can’t believe we ever bought that cover story”). I’m telling you, Kojima is doing some serious fiddling

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Idk my father in law was a airborne ranger in Vietnam from 67-69.
            He was in a few crashes and helicopters they are using in game is the old Apache type used in nam. They don’t go very fast. Plus it’s big boss he survived being put back together from other people’s body parts. Doubt alil crash in the ocean will kill him.
            That helicopter is crashing and I say it why will cause coma but don’t knpw for sure. I just know tha helicopter is already out of control because of the shockwave from pazs pussy bomb. Then the other helicopter is also spinning out of control right into boss. He might not end up Ina coma from crash but I’d say the wounds line up with a heli collision.

          • Raymondius

            It’s not an apache. I was doing some reserch and it is clearly a mix between the russian helicopters Hind D and the Mil-mi 28

    • decoyF0XX

      I’ve been saying this, Snake did not go into a coma after that explosion. The Medic saved him, I mean, that’s why they went through the stress of animating the Medic character to jump in front of Snake lol. If not they wouldn’t have needed to show that.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Well he was in Cuba and mother base was in Caribbean. Takes a while to get there

      • MichaelPayneV

        True.

        • Romain Robin

          Also, we don’t know where the hospital where he is reanimated is located. Also, we know it is bright day time when Big Boss falls into a coma, so shit happenned after the GZ collision. Doctors seem to speak a perfect US english… Maybe Guantanamo bay ? We know that camp omega is a blacksite copying guantanamo bay, but in the PC version of GZ, some dataminers have found a location called “Guantanamo”. Why the folder was not called “campomega” or “cuba”? The folder is the first time that the name Guantanamo is present in Metal gear solid, so maybe there is something after GZ? I’d like to believe there is a direct confrontation between skull face and big boss and then Big Boss falls into a coma. Remember the scene in The TPP trailer where the XOF unit is in front a chopper, aiming their guns at the camera and Skull face appears and tell them to lower their guns ? What if Big Boss was the one they all were aiming at ?

          Or maybe there is something we really really don’t know about the story after the chopper collision and Snake falls in a coma in Cyprus, the island where he wakes up in TPP ?
          So much unkown, I need those answers ! Release dat game !

          • MichaelPayneV

            “Also, we don’t know where the hospital where he is reanimated is located. ”

            We actually know, is in Cyprus.

          • Romain Robin

            Maybe I failed to express my idea (sorry, not english):
            We know he wakes up in Cyrpus, but the hospital where he FALLS into a coma (reanimation attempts) is in an unknown location

          • MichaelPayneV

            The room looks the same, i think is The Same place.

          • Romain Robin

            To me it’s just an hospital.. White room, doctors…
            But if what you say is right, that means Big Boss and Kaz travelled to Cyprus just after the GZ chopper collision, and something really bad happened there. You realize it’s a 9 hours flight from Cuba to Cyrpus with a big ass plane cruising at 1000km/h ? 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Nah, i think only the accident happen, andas seen here Big Boss may have entered The Comma because of Blood Loss and nothing more, because the Distance from Mother Base to Cyprus was too Huge for Big Boss to stay Awake.

            http://share.gifyoutube.com/KrWrpx.gif

    • MrVux007

      guess people never saw a trailer for the game that is in W.I.P. stage….the scenes change,the character models change,gameplay changes etc….that is why at the end of GDC trailer we see snake on the motorbike with a shrapnel/horn on the lover right part of his forehead instead of upper right (like it is now)…..in short nothing strange here,same happened in MGS2,MGS3 and MGS4

      • Big_Boss88

        I don’t think they would leave such amazing scene out of TPP or change it completely. I’m quite certain this scene will happen, but that is just my opinion :). Kojima always surprise us though, so we’ll see what happen… Only thing we can do is keep guessing in the mean time :(.

    • gerber

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY3xyHX29Xc#t=195 start at 3:15 and pause when miller hits the wall. Look out the window. Same bright sky. In the final cut of the game it’s dark outside the window. Keep in mind that this trailer was quite some time ago, and perhaps Kojima decided to remove some scenes. It happened already with previous games, so it is very hard to speculate base on trailers. Or maybe this scene is from some kind of flashbash, or a haunting dream during his coma. Who knows

      EDIT: ok I see somebody has pointed this out already. Feel free to delete this post mods ^-^

    • No Place For Hayter

      It is REALLY HARD to make a timeline of events after ground zeroes, but you can tell from the look on his face and the blood that this scene is after mother base has fallen, the most probable thing is the helicopters do not crash into each other after all that would be in the middle of the ocean and who would find and save them out there even if they did collide?

      There is so much that is really hard to make sense of so I am sure of one thing, what it turns out being will surprise me.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Good point.

  • vic boss

    One thing I would like to add , how are we gonna be able to make a sound so an enemy can come and look for us when we have the Ground Zeroes suit and we have both arms? Maybe that’s why Kojima said it’s a bug, But still if at the finish product we still get the GZ suit with both arms, we won’t be able to make any sound at all.

    • MichaelPayneV

      As they said, it was a Bug.

  • Golgari

    I think Kojima hinted on to something.

    https://twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/557709080446636032

    Maybe he will use one of the old songs for his next trailer from this group. I checked out their new songs at youtube (currently it is hard to find free full version on youtube) but you can at least listen to a small version of it and the music is awesome and can be related to MGS at some form.

    This was my favourite. Listen:

    • Aw jeez I really hope not ahah

      Their music wouldn’t fit with anything else in Metal Gear I think.

      • Ravenous

        I agree, it sort of feels too upbeat to fit in with the epic Sins of the father and gloomy/moody Not your kind of people and Nuclear, but by all means, if anyone could make it work it would be Kojima.

      • Golgari

        I dunno. Soul Boy definitely would not fit in Metal Gear but maybe there is something that fits it that was in 1984. I don’t know this band so…

        • I don’t know them either, I listened to their “best of” album after I saw your post and I’m not a fan. haha

    • MichaelPayneV

      This one sounds like Metal Gear.

    • Big_Boss88

      Hmm I’m not sure what to think of this :D. Sounds a bit weird if mixed with Metal Gear imo, well when hearing for the first time. But maybe Kojima would still make this song work in a good way somehow.

      Don’t really know the band myself very well.

  • gnysek

    It would be nice if they say “We won’t give you release date at least until [name of month]”. Still, that doesn’t mean it will be released a month or 10 months later after this date, but at least you won’t wake up every day thinking “maybe they announce it today?”.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    (Offtopic)
    I watched the movie “The Guest” yesterday night and it was very good. The main protagonist kind of looks like Troy Baker but he doesn’t talk too much in the movie. Check it out if you can. It has a great soundtrack too, something l haven’t said since l watched “The Woman”.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I saw Dan Stevens in “The Guest”, “Night At The Museum 3” and “A Walk Among The Tombstones” and i’ll have to say, he may the the Upcoming Actor for the Snakes, also in “A Walk Among The Tombstones” the Chemistry between him and Liam Neeson was good, so good it made me see them as Big Boss and Young Solid Snake.

      • turkishgamer35

        imo he would be perfect liquid snake he has blond hair and british accent

    • turkishgamer35

      thanks for advice after saw your post watched trailer and looks good gonna watch this weekend

  • Mini gear

    What if though the impossibal happend and we got a March release date o_o

  • Big_Boss88

    Wow so many comments…what have I misseď?

    • Mini gear

      Nothing much but Donna Burke may give us hope for s Taipei announcement

      • Big_Boss88

        Ok thx Mini, I’ll read the rest soon ;).

        • Mini gear

          Np boss

    • No Place For Hayter

      I have no idea, I am surprised that we have so many comments without an explosive reason for everyone to comment.

  • ominonarepus

    There are a lot of good games coming out, and some of the I wanna try like Arkham Knight or Bloodborne…but that’s all, try them…

    But TPP… I’m gonna squeeze it until the last drop… it’s been a really long time since this:

    • MichaelPayneV

      I Prefer the Alternative Version of this Trailer, the one with an 80’s Style Score.
      http://youtu.be/ZJ8U45OuXs0

      • Big_Boss88

        Awesome version! 🙂

    • Big_Boss88

      Is it weird that the part I maybe look forward to the most is such a linear one lol,The Hospital + Escape with Ocelot? Don’t get me wrong, I love everything I’ve seen of TPP and open world areas etc, but that Hospital part just seem so mysterious and intense :3. Also look so beautiful <(^O^<)…

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Will be a good beginning after watching cutscene finishing the crash from GZ. Then wake up 9 years later. Heh. Makes sense to me . As shockwave would say to Megatron,” LOGICAL ANSWER”

      • ominonarepus

        You can bet on it! Maybe Kojima gave us a MindFuck up to the Psycho Mantis, or later on, the one from Scarecrow (I think the hospital part gonna look more like that last one)

      • turkishgamer35

        you know what still remember first time i saw this trailer and thinking this is a new kind of survival/horror game 🙂

        • Big_Boss88

          I thought so too :D. The atmosphere in that whole hospital scene is creepy. Place is totally empty looking at first.

    • decoyF0XX

      Either I’m crazy or that’s the Medic’s face at 1:49! This hospital is full with clones of him.

      • MichaelPayneV

        You’re not, this is most likely the place that made Solidus Exist, i have a feeling that 1 of Big Boss Clones from this Hospital will survive and become Solidus.

        • ominonarepus

          To me that hospital looks like a nice quiet hospital near to a cliff by the sea (well, we can see a lighthouse in other video) So, I think that is not the kind of hospital that makes clones… or maybe is it, I don’t know… Anyway, even if that hospital is the one that make the clones, they should scape from there long time ago, assuming that Eli is Liquid.

          Maybe I’m wrong, so don’t get mad 😉

          • MichaelPayneV

            I wasn’t talking about “Les Enfants Terribles”, but about the Clones made from BB Left Arm, the Perfect Fully Grown BB Clones, like Solidus, about “V has come to”

        • decoyF0XX

          Same thing on my mind. Unless there’s a new Snake. I don’t even know which would be more exciting.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, considering that Big Boss at the end of MGS4 didn’t had a Scar at all, i think is possible that THAT Big Boss was The Medic.

          • decoyF0XX

            I think we’re definitely playing as Big Boss though. Remember Kojima said he’s going to change some things and we should just bear with him.

          • MichaelPayneV

            True that, and i actually think that the Revelation we will get with MGSV is that the Big Boss and Solid Snake Saga are not in the same Timeline, that each has its version of each other.

          • decoyF0XX

            That can also create a sort of mini-reboot with a new ending for the Solid Snake saga, which I think would be really cool.

  • PrinceHeir

    Wow playing RE Remake on PS4 looks really good!!!

    I don’t know why this game doesn’t have dual audio even though the JPN version has both audios and multiple languages(PS3 i can confirm)

    Gonna play this more for sure! I kinda miss these kind of style in Resident Evil series.

    • Big_Boss88

      Chris or Jill :D? Chris for me.

      • PrinceHeir

        I really enjoyed any RE style of play. Be it RE4 and beyond or pre RE4 games.

        But there’s really something special about the old games. Remake even made it better which a Remake should be.

        I would love a Remake of 2 as well!! But RE3 was one of my favorite PS1 era games!! Nemesis in HD and chasing you around is gonna be godly :O

        Of course Jill!! I love Jill!! One of my favorite female characters in the franchise!!1 Only Ada Wong could top her ^^

        Man Jill Valentine really looks gorgeous in Remake X__X

        Remake/0, RE4 and RE6 are my favorite character design in the franchise. I really really wish they gave back Jill’s old look, since the new one is just eh.

        http://oi62.tinypic.com/6zlbo9.jpg

    • ominonarepus

      My Ps3 is downloading it now! I never tried before, and I miss those RE, the 1, 2 and 3 (not huge fan of RE4) Just like one year ago I play for fist time too (never is late) RE: Code Veronica… amazing game!

      Maybe is because the last RE games I played where RE5, RE6 and Raccon Cit…(have the umbrella logo and mosters every
      where, does not make you a RE game)

      But anyway, maybe is because i miss the camera angles, loading screens camouflaged by doors or just the zombies, (the “slow” ones, I’m tired of the “infecteds”) I thank this “remastered-HD-remake”

    • MichaelPayneV

      ! thing i’m disappointed is that they didn’t made it Third Person.

  • moto hellogoto

    im getting use to waiting. The key is not to hype yourself up. That makes it easier

  • KiloTwoOne

    I know they do all kinds of post production work in these areas, but it just seems odd. Oh well, only just over eleven months left in the year, so its getting closer. No matter how long they make us wait, they can’t stop time. Sigh………

  • GardenSnake

    How cool would it be if they released the game on 5/5/15 (V/V/XV)? Just wishful thinking.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Not far from June.

    • Invader_skoodge

      That would mean the release date is on Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is observed in Mexico. Decoy Octopus was born in Mexico. We have 3 members of Foxhound in TPP (Ocelot, Liquid[Eli], Psycho Mantis) Mariachi Hat confirmed!!

          Yes, i see it, nice catch…also it had to be, i mean who was controlling the Horse if it wasn’t Psycho Mantis, right?

          • CodeBox

            Thanks! I only hope Mantis is seen throughout the whole game and not just the beginning.

        • Mini gear

          I need to know these mysteries ;_;

        • Javier Sosa

          I have never watched psycho mantis in the horse. Thanks for the information.

          It looks like he will have more power than mgs1. It happens in many games and movies, no matter the time period, just make the characters better.

          And off topic, they have the same posture, snake and the fire guy.

          I’m still thinking that this image of snake should have been the cover of the game.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well my Theory is that the Flaming Volgin and Ishamel are both Snake’s 2 sides clashing, and that just like MGS2, MGSV will be a Metaphor, a Psychological Battle in BB Head.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yes, do I get a cookie?

        No Cookie, but you do win a CalorieMate

          Even better!

  • Invader_skoodge

    I thought something big was going to happen soon but they scheduled another Kojima Station for February 12 so I think they aren’t wrapping up any time soon. I can’t take it anymore. I know the game is coming out but it feels like The Last Guardian right now. I may be overreacting but I’m a MGS fan. That’s what we do. :p

    • Mini gear

      maybe it will and thell go on on the big thing subject

      • Invader_skoodge

        Well, yeah at least the schedule for tonight’s Kojima Station will be some brief behind the scenes of TPP from KojiPro so there’s that.

  • Javier Sosa

    Can we talk about bugs or things to change? Like when snake’s arms or feet traspass things. Or when you grab a soldier from a cover and he flies to the other side and then goes back to snake.

    In the third image, I don’t want to draw it all, but it looks like a penis. I hope they change that. I didn’t notice that until I read it on youtube.

    • MichaelPayneV

      The Last one is most likely intentional, part of the Humor.

      • Javier Sosa

        I don’t rike it

        • MichaelPayneV

          Then you’ll have to deal with it.

          • Javier Sosa

            I wont use it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Even better.

    • RJRO

      I´m not expert in programing and game deising but i think collision bugs are prety hard to fix.
      And about the suit subject. It has a penis form because the suit is ment to protec, and in this case is protecting the scapula and the spinal column, witch lead to the penis form.
      The problem is not the suit, the problem is that our back is a penis. (pun intended)

      • Invader_skoodge

        Yes debugging is very difficult. I saw a recent tweet from Kojima saying that fixing one thing breaks something else so he’s figuring out ways to make things work.

    • Big_Boss88

      It’s don’t look like a penis…it’s….well it’s something other than that! Has to be…

    Abandon all hopes! I just did. Have to wait like million years, that next TR will be published on PS consoles and now this?I just want to see world burning right now.
    Thank Kaz and the fiddles, Arkham Knight will be released soon.

      I wish I liked the Arkham games but I never really got into them. So I have nothing new for 2015 to hold me over until TPP. I lost the hype I’m crying.

      • Hanna-Mari

        I’ll see soon is Knight good as Asylum and City was. But TPP is that masterpiece, which I am waiting. Sitting and waiting… my preciousssss…

    Not to be exquisite, but in the last shot, isn’t BB’s leg a bit too squared? I mean… it’s quite unrealistic compared to the rest of the body anatomy. Reminds me of PW anatomy lol

      He is wearing knee pads. I think every sneaking suit has knee pads.
