Hideo Kojima prepares for Taipei Game Show 2015

On January 28 the Taipei Game Show 2015 has officially kicked off.

This year the show consists of 1471 booths from 195 companies, making it the largest so far. As we know, Kojima will be attending to present MGSV: The Phantom Pain on January 31st. Unfortunately, there won’t be a live stream available.

In preparation of the event, Kojima has been signing TPP flyers and other promotional items to hand out on the show floor.

    Let’s get s*** started!

  • FOX

    Hope to hear a relase date of a relase date

    • Well we already have an announcement of an announcement of the release window. 😛

      • Mr.Pony

        Release Datecepetion

      • Shalashaska

        Because just too good

    • Shalashaska

      Just if you didnt catch the announcement Nyxus is talking about… That Announcement said “pretty soon”.. this was 5-6days ago, if im not wrong so we all are hoping that “soon” is at taipei but it just as well can be GDC in march :/
      Oh and the exact words were “only a little longer”

      • FOX

        Yeah but this is a “japaneese pretty soon”
        lol

        • Shalashaska

          Exactly :/ For a game dev.. pretty soon can be March too :/

          • FOX

            İ bet this comes no later than june.İm sure of it

          • Shalashaska

            well, honestly I have the same thoughts but i still hope for march.. its unrealistic i guess but lets hope it’s march and not june.. hope and pray :/

          • Mini gear

            prey I the trolljima my friend, its all we can do

          • FOX

            İmpossible buddy

          • Shalashaska

            lets hope :'(

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Gotta give the ol school livin Japanese props for patience. It’s a trait us in the west have lost. Heh

  • maybe he will reveal gangan style glasses for snake… or a pink prosthetic arm, that’s how low my expectations are

    • My_FutureDream

      Loool!

    • Edward Wokhands

      My expectations are genuinely on the level of a pink arm or something. Either that or more spoilers. (Well, by spoiler I mean area and feature announcements. I want it all to be a surprise.)

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I doubt it. Tapei is gonna be big this year. Sony is bringing out the big guns. Suppose to be a couple world premiers also. I guess Asia is trying to get Tapei to be big as American ones.
        Also there will be live streams if you own a ps4 or computer and know where to look on Twitch.

        • Edward Wokhands

          You got a link to those please? It sounds like it’ll be as big as e3, but if that’s true then why aren’t they advertising the live streams everywhere?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Also I think there plan is to get it as big as E3. Though I’ve heard of it being pretty pro Playstation, so, I was thinking that I doubt it’s gonna have a release date but more on Playstation gimmicks for MGS tpp. Just seems they would probably say at a show where the focus would be 100% on gaming but you never know!!

          • Mini gear

            a release date would make this show instantly bigger then e3

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Truth

    • Kol Leqejza

      pink prosthetics would be actually pretty neat!

  • Stream or riot 😛

  • LukesAlike

    Riot or riot.

  • Mini gear

    hmm, what can he do for an hour, talk about movies while wearing a chicken hat

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Well if it is just MGS , then, he could talk for 3 hours haha but seriously yea I was wondering same thing. If it’s ps MGS only I bet it will do with ps4 features? Kind of makes sense I think. Ya know I was hoping for features to differentiate the systems.

  • Every African in the game should talk like this guy. I can’t stop laughing.
    https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10154615800715596&pnref=story

    • NakedSnake85

      you do realize that from his point of view you sound funny too?

      • It was one of my african friends who shared it on my facebook page, he can’t stop laughing either.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Some English people sound funny to other English people.

  • Mini gear

    I really just want to buy tpp at this point

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Yes I want a window just so I’m not trolling myself. If it needs more , I am fine with it , just would like a window from now till how long heh

      • Edward Wokhands

        Hopefully they’ll say “between Feb and April”. PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE.

  • MrVux007

    heres hoping for more in depth base infiltration/invasion gameplay…. ^^

    • My_FutureDream

      I would like that 🙂 I have many questions about it so it’ll be a great idea to expand a little bit more on that subject.

      And a little something about the release window! xD

    • Edward Wokhands

      Noooo! No new footage! Just a release date please!

      Don’t you want it all to be a surprise?

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Idk if it ruins a surprise since a lot of the trailers are made in a way to confuse you while generating hype. A lot are dubbed with lines from different scenes . If you still feel like it could spoil you, then by all means quit reading and watching trailers and demos

        • Edward Wokhands

          I hope you’re right about the confusion thing. I don’t remember what MGS4’s trailers were like. Were there any spoilers before release?

          By the way, trying to stay away from this site is almost impossible.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            There were some videos. Tha was a while ago for me haha but no he never really spoils anything that I remember. Mgs2 people had no idea you were gonna be raiden. That’s keeping stuff locked tight heh and somebody on here posted the link

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, I always find that absolutely incredible that he kept that secret. The internet wasn’t as popular as now but it was still around.

            I’m actually scared (with excitement) of what Kojima has in store because Troy Baker said in that recent interview that he admires Kojima for doing something “so bold”. I wonder what it is. Sounds like it could be something as big as Raiden. Then again he can’t really swap protagonists I don’t think because it’s BB’s story. Unless we suddenly get to play as Liquid or Solid Snake.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Well I understand tht but Troy barker is like a barking dog haha nah but I think child soldiers/rape/torture? Would be pretty bold imo compared to other games. Yes him keeping raiden a secret was amazing. Also a bold thing could be MGS V – reboot anyone?
            I always wondered why he chose a clone of BB to be the main cat ya know?
            I would like to see time travel to save my favorite kinda grey villain. Off topic but I really hope we can get into time paradoxes and have solid join wit bb would be epic. I can hope

          • Edward Wokhands

            You mean in MGS5 there’d be a Metal Gear 1 remake? Holy crap. Can you imagine if half way through when Big Boss turns fully evil you get to control Solid Snake and play through a Metal Gear 1 remake? Holy balls. I’m not expecting anything like that though, it’d honestly be unfair. It’d be a crazy amount of work. Then again it’s Kojima. Metal Gear Solid 3 still beats all PS3, PS4 and PC games. He’ll have something amazing and surprising in store even if it’s just part of the story.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea it’s just a hope. I know Konami is in financial probs. I think a lot of people wouldn’t mind if he did write time paradoxes in if it is written good. That could open up the storyline so much and also give a reason to redo some stuff for alt realities. Seems it’s right up MGS.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Well MGS 3 is a good game but best game out for all systems it’s on. Idk. I agree it’s a good game but xbox1 has one of the best visual games out right now that’s underrated because of xb1 sales. Ryse is one of the most stunning games I have ever played. Then on ps4 I liked the new infamous.
            I try to play as many games as I can, so me, I can’t really say a game is best in world because I always play games that make me rethink that.
            Telltale games is amazing. Everything they do from TWD to GoT to a wolf among us. Also the last of is AMAZING anyone says other wise, is just being different to be different because that game is wowowowowow

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, Ryse is a million times better looking, I played it for PC not long ago. The gameplay and characters though? I can’t remember 1 thing about it other than the good graphics. I loved Infamous, that’s my favorite PS4 game and I loved all the other games you listed. The Last Of Us and TWD come close but everything about MGS3 and even 4, all the details, the over the top yet somehow believable (while you’re playing within the context of the game world) characters, all the easter eggs, (like the multiple ways of defeating The End, all the ways you can play around while disguised as a scientist) the music, all the dialogue to do with movies and different animals. No other game has come near. Other games are good in their own right but surely you can’t compare TWD or TLOU to MGS3? I mean MGS3’s gameplay (well, actually MGS3 HD) is great and then all the stuff I just mentioned on top of that, I don’t know.

            I feel like I’m not really communicating what I want to. There are too many things that make it a perfect game to me and it’s 2 generations old! It’s a true work of art while those other games are just games. (Well, the story of TWD is amazing but at the expense of gameplay (I was moved just as much by parts of MGS4 and almost as much with MGS3’s ending), easter eggs and small details. TLOU has near perfect gameplay, characters and story but not the detailed dialogue, symbolism and easter eggs so once it’s all weighed MGS3 is way on top for me. I’m not being hostile by the way in case this came across that way.)

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I loved mgs3 but what I meant was that as years go by a new game catches my eye and becomes one of the legends in my eyes. I can’t just keep playing same game for years. It is def one of the legends and will always be a great game. TWD really captured me on game telling and in terms of arrest game play, difficulty and fun. Yea the last of us is way up there. Now I like both for those reasons but each game has its class of game. So in ways of mgs3 v.s TLOU are the same but at the core it’s two different games. I have a thing for apocalypse games and they nailed the emotion, drive, problems, types of people. Like perfect.
            So it’s hard to answer that question without saying that first.
            As a stealth game? MGS hands down.
            As a emotional roller coaster ? TLAU hands down

  • Mini gear

    kojima just give me the game, its perfect , it doesn’t need checking ;_;

    • Mr.Pony

      “No, I must add games to the game like “Motherbase Simulator 1984”, “Burnout: Military Edition”, “Bomberman; Air Strike DLC”, “Duck (and other animals) Hunt” and “MineCraft”. and “Zoo Tycon; Oil Platform”. After that you get the game.”

  • FOX

    Damn that chopper looks huge. İ wonder how many sheeps i can put in it. lol

    • Edward Wokhands

      The sheep is Chico confirmed.

      • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

        Kaz….. he’s already a sheep.

  • Sly

    And now I present the chicken hat…on DD. With DD buddy gameplay.

    • gerber

      Or DD hat for BB, and BB hat for DD

      • Edward Wokhands

        A Chico hat for Quiet.

  • Golgari

    My expectations are low right now. It’s a niche show so no release date announcement but I think Kojima can show us something cool. Kojima is there so fans can expect some information from the show that’s for sure.
    Would be cool if he can show us gameplay video. I’m hungry for that stuff.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Same here. I’m expecting no news, no new announcements of importance. Probably a lot of what we’ve already seen and maybe 1 or 2 very minor things. Remember that Russian show last year that everyone got excited for? They said they’d show something new, but the way it was worded meant “new for the people at the show”. So nothing new was shown. -_-

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Yea but it was stated by a Konomi rep that it is NEW INFO about the game. Now is it NEW INFO on MGS TPP or MGO 3 ? That is the question.

        • MGO won’t be at the show, only TPP.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea wasn’t sure but there is twitch to watch Tapei :/

          • Mini gear

            where?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Gotta look it up. On business and have my phone and cannot stream good videos on it.
            Also not sure if it will be like one twitch video or many videos depending on what is shown

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Ok I found a few. Look up live Tapei game show twitch

          • Mini gear

            nvm

          • Jonny McLaurine

            No sir, I actually found out from my wife because she is there 😡

          • Mini gear
          • Jonny McLaurine

            Sweet… What I don’t understand is why they told no one? They said no live streams but it’s just not true. Unless they meant we as in koji pro won’t stream it. Well glad I could help.
            On the 31st I’ll give a update from meh wifey

          • Yes, there won’t be an official live stream. Not sure if there’s going to be a way to watch the TPP presentation.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I hope. I know I’m getting a autograph 🙂 so I’m pretty stoked. I’ve gotten a few autos from some of the best in gaming but this will be my first hideo kojima auto 🙂

          • Got a signed copy of MGS3, and a signed flyer of MGS4 (by Kojima, Shinkawa and Kikuchi, at the 2008 world tour). But you will be at the show yourself?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            No my wife is there on buisness

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Haha I wanted to go but I have to re-up my certified Welding inspector license.
            Also her firm is kind of cheap to family 😡 but goes all out for clients

          • Jonny McLaurine

            And you are lucky. Hideo is probably my fav game designer. I know I’ll cherish the little pamphlet auto heh
            Sorry for double posts. I like reply and then I’m like oh yea I forgot

          • Mini gear

            while you or you’re wives there could you grab me one? my life goals are playing tpp and something touched by kojima

          • Jonny McLaurine

            :()

          • Big_Boss88

            Omg im so jealous xD, I want Kojima autograph too ;D …

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice your wife is lucky to be there :D. Yes I wonder why they told us no live stream available hmm…

            Maybe it just isn’t for the Day when they show TPP, I dunno :D.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Very well could be but I doubt it. They trying to bring 10 billion dollars to tha country with TGS. Will it work? 😡

          • Big_Boss88

            Hmmm yeah… maybe we just gotta wait a little more then see it all afterwards :/.
            They should definitely make live stream possible there XD!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Ya know I would be ok with TPP launching and waiting for MGO. I remember the wait for MGO after servers kept crashing and it kept getting delayed then fixed then crash delay again argg

          • They’re still planning to release them at the same time, but we’ll see what happens.

          • Mini gear

            I just hope mgo doesn’t somehow slow tpp

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea but seeing how informed on MGS you are. Do you remember the issues with the launch of MGO?
            I’m sure they worked out all those problems but , but I can’t but feel rushed to jump into MGO. I know a lot will jump in asap and do the mp part as soon as able.
            If you focus on single player by the time you start MGO . The most dedicated will have the online unlocks and have the maps memorized.
            I’m a big MP/co-op advocate because it does lengthen the games life span and I will probably be in MGO as soon as able because I always try to top leader boards in all MP aspects.
            I would love to see it come out alil after TPP has been released .
            If not. I’ll finish the story Ina year or 2 because 3rd person shooter online is what I live for.
            Call me a bad ass pigeon rank heh

        • Edward Wokhands

          Great! Hopefully that new info is the release date. And that date is “March 1st”. Or Feb 1st and it’ll turn out that every video Kojima made was a troll. ¬_¬

  • Edward Wokhands

    I’m honestly scared of what they’ll show. If it’s new footage I really don’t want to see it. But I’ll probably still end up watching it anyway. I just want a release date and then I can forget about it until then.

  • Tibor

    ” Boss, we should send in someone as a spy. I already found the ideal candidate. He knows the language and he is one of our best. It’s gonna be … Wait!? … That can’t be ! … Boss, one of the official main attendants of the show has same name as our spy. Hideo Kojima! Could he be double agent?! I don’t know what is going on but I do know who has to be behind this… Cipher !…”

    • Raymondius

      I really read it with Kaz’s voice from start to end. Boss bless you.

  • Mini gear

    I just want him to go up and say ” were releasing it in march” then leave the other 59 minutes of nothing

    • Big_Boss88

      Haha this made me laugh ;D, yea that would be funny and amazing lol 🙂 .

    • Theo Cevallos

      59 minutes of applause and a couple of heart attacks emergencies

      • Shalashaska

        Heart attack emergencies may actually happen either way xD (As in if he doesnt give us a rlease date and instead gives us a pink prosthetic and more gameplay/trailers to tease us) :'(

      • Edward Wokhands

        If he doesn’t announce it he’ll have a crowd of hulks on his hands.

  • Mini gear

    hype

  • NakedSnake85

    Metal Gear solid V : The phantom release pain

  • DarpaLT.Sigma_

    My money is on a new trailer , plus a release window tease . Like kojima will say “two months tops, maybe…. we’ll see” x)

    • Big_Boss88

      I think a new trailer will be revealed too :D.

      • DarpaLT.Sigma_

        Hype is off the Meter ! Jus 2 more days until I see KOJIMA at the conference n hear those words.. WORLD PREMIERE !! 😀

    • Edward Wokhands

      I hope he says 2 months. Please god, PLEASE! PLEASE?

      • Mini gear

        KOJIMAAAA! please end the suffering and say two months

  • Shalashaska

    Run, Kaz, RUN! *I made it but still cant help read that in Hayter’s Voice*

  • Big_Boss88

    Excited to see what Kojima will show us :D. I just kinda hope TPP release before E3, because the longer it goes the more stuff we see of this lovely game.

    Which is not a bad thing really and I know Kojima dont give any massive spoilers, but to discover the stuff when playing is best and I know cant ignore what we see in Taipei xD.

    Well, this new material will keep me busy for the upcoming wait 😉 . Btw, I checked few days ago any possible live stream sites and twitch had some Taipei Game Show channel. But I guess it dont show live stuff when they told us there is none ;( …?

    • Edward Wokhands

      I’m in the same position, I really don’t want to see any new footage but I can’t keep away from this site and can’t resist watching new videos or looking at new screenshots.

  • MichaelPayneV

    The tallent we’ve lost…The Actors we’ve lost, won’t stop hurting, is like they are still there…you feel it to, don’t you?
    I’m gonna make them give back our Cast!
    PS: I like Kiefer as Snake, but i just found this simmilarity, MGSV Casting with MGSV theme.

    • vic boss

      Who is the guy at the right side of the picture?

      • Shiragama

        That’s Jim Piddock. He is the english voice actor for Zero.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Jim Piddock, Major Zero, familiar?

        • vic boss

          oh yeah I remember now, I didn’t recognize him I thought he was younger.

  • Sn4ke_911

    DD!

    • solidsnack

      DD is so cute just sitting there calmly 🙂

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmmm I wanna see how DD fights along with his master, BB >:D!
        Double eyepatch combo :).

        • Jonny McLaurine

          I am hoping that you can have that dog attack throats and attach cameras to the dog. Kind of like how Delta or seals or anything jsoc do. Haha doing a halo jump with dog attached to you would be epic

          • Big_Boss88

            I hope so too :), that camera idea sounds cool.

            Haha yep, my Diamond Doggie won’t be afraid of no heights, I will teach DD how to use a parachute >:). Ocelot must’ve taught DD some super nasty combat skills.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea if he has a military adviser and they are adding realistic elements of modern warfare for MGS about dog warfare.
            Then I can probably say for certainty that you will be able to be very stealthy with diamond dog. Let’s say there are two enemies. You have dog attack the one guy , while you sneak and choke out the other. Though diamond dogs options have to be lethal but in a game compared to real life they can add many elements that “touch” on real skills of military dogs. Tracking down assassins in the jungle with dd smelling them out. Cadaver finding, bomb dogs, attack dogs so much potential.

          • Edward Wokhands

            That would be absolutely hilarious. Imagine calling DD in the way we saw Quiet called in the Africa gameplay. A dog flying in via parachute is something only Kojima could pull off.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Maybe Kojima will actually make COD’s dog idea work instead of the boring mess that fish AI COD game was.

        • solidsnack

          ye between them they have two eyes i guess haha i’m gonna be terrified of losing DD since you have the chance of losing him in battle, maybe i’d just take him out on easier missions to be safe.

          • Big_Boss88

            That losing your buddy thing reminded me of something. You know what would be cool? If we could upgrade our buddies somehow, like giving DD a protective gear at some point etc. But then again, that might make things too easy if enemy can’t defeat them well.

            I just don’t wanna lose my DD or Quiet… If it happens for some reason…then I promise I will…
            http://www.p4rgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/kojimapressesbuttonsinreallifetodothis.jpg

          • Shalashaska

            I am betting that that is already in. remember the Africa gameplay with quiet ? He mentioned in that that the buddy will get better as he/she gets more loyal to BBoss .. So taking that and that they are military group with an R&D dept. Its for sure that that will be possible.. Although.. Im wondering what you could do with quiet.. Perhaps change her sniper or her rifle.. Choose from Range and/or accuracy and/or Damage and her suit perhaps.. Mayb we’ll be able to R&D better gear for DD and quiet

            If I loose any character.. IMMEDIATE Shut Console and restart to nearest autosave

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Well in ps4 it’s constantly saving , I have a feeling that it won’t be a big deal if they die but keeping them alive will be difficult but rewarding? Probably each buddy has its own missions and depending on how you accomplish mission and if you take mission you can get better with buddy. In a way kinda dragon ageism type system. But back to saving if it’s like GZ , then you will probably have to restart game file maybe? I hope so because that way when your buddy’s maxed out, it actually means something like damn, that was HARD man. Also when maxed out, should open that character for MGO. I wanna be diamond dog in mp

          • Shalashaska

            Well, Honestly I care Little for the rewards but Im guessing each one will have a connection/attachment/story with big boss and that is Why i’ll keep them alive.. even if it means dieing myself 😀 Exactly like how games like DragonAge and Mass effect work.. you dont need what your crew brings in but its nice to know their stories and attachment to Shpard or Your inquisitor 🙂
            Xbox 360 may not have constant saving.. if it does.. that may be a pain :/
            I’m hoping it’s like GZ, that way..mistakes can be rectified 🙂
            I dont think you’ll have to max out The characters to get them.. im sure they may be there as default .. but i doubt you’ll be able to play as DD .. perhaps Big boss wearing a wolf/DD costume.. now that would be hilarious xD

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Gotta have rewards for difficulty in this day an age. Back in NES days all you got was a congrats text at the end of each game. Plus it’s nice having things that are so difficult everyone can’t do it. Every game does that now days. Also it’s nice to be able to show off in MP . Yea mofo look at why I gotz ha

          • Shalashaska

            haha yea. That would be Hilarious.. plus thats a great idea.. showing off how much of the main game you’ve finished in the MP is actually a pretty good idea

          • Jonny McLaurine

            i see the new TPP being a game changer. It has to be for Konami sake. If not this will be the last game:(

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea my childhood games were damn hard. If you watch AVGN that guy is proof enough, I wasn’t so angry at them but some were hard as hell. These days many games hold your hand.

          • Shalashaska

            More like hold your hand, change you diaper and feed you baby food 😛

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Haha 100% truth. My son when he was 5 I got him his own ps3 and 360 and he would complain and flip when he couldn’t beat something. Now he be running through last of us on grounded. Comes down to learning patience and practicing. Then learning that gaming is not suppose to be easy
            And he’s 9 now

          • Shalashaska

            What is irritating is that game dev have made games not only easier but they’ve done that by sacrificing good game mechanics just so the “casual gamer” can play easily.. I mean.. Why ? Why cut out good stuff and make the game easier to play for casual gamers ?
            Thats what i hate most about games getting easier.. I remember back in the day, splinter cell used to be so hard and tough to play with TONS of gadgets and everything.. now I can finish the whole game in one sitting and while going full stealth :/ I dont mind that games are getting easier but now its more of “here take 100 easyenemies, its better than one awesome cool enemy that you have to use tactis to beat” and “oh we made it easier this time, just hold Rt and square and thats all, we are aiming at casual gamers so that any gamer can get the game, put it in and enjoy it” .. that is what is getting worse year by year .. and if it keeps going, by 2030, we’ll have games that last 1hr and have the other 4hrs on the disc but its locked for PAID DLC. Rather than making games more complex, some game devs think its better to make a crap game so EVERYONE can play rather than a good game which gamers can play..

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I agree 100% on that. Like I said before I have a lot of issues with today’s currwnt gaming trends. Games are a lot more mainstream now than 70s and every ten years , it changes and gets more people. Which in turn brings more money. Which in turn just changed what gaming was about originally. As long as a few GOOD games come out a year . I’ll be happy but I do fear for the future.

          • Shalashaska

            Exactly.. I mean very few games are actually evolving to be more complex..name me one series that evolved to be more COMPLEX rather than become simple … i cant even think of any on the top of my head.. DarkSouls not included! Instead Games are getting more simple so it can reach the hands of more people around the world.. What game devs have to realize is that it’s gonna end up ruining PROPER gaming if that continues :/

          • Big_Boss88

            The reason why I for example love Dark Souls is because it give me that uber difficult feeling from old games, which not many games give anymore. I loved that. I don’t remember how many times I died on 1st playthrough, maybe a 1000 lol. DS was also the first game in a LONG TIME for me, that made me kinda of rage quit hah ;D. In Blighttown and Anor Londo…but the feeling of achievement when finally clear the game or difficult parts was so good.

            TPP will be awesome that it offers many ways to play. Obviously many go guns blazing maybe, but not me. No reflex, Hard mode is so nice in GZ. Also tried to play without Enemy Marking too few times, daaamn that was intense sneaking :). Will try this combo in TPP but maybe first with Marking on.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Omg whole first author ugh? Sheesh I had like a whole 6 months logged in first year haha jk but it was a lot

          • Shalashaska

            Honestly, I got dark souls 2.. never tried the first part. but i just could’nt push myself to play it.. not because it was too hard.. i actually liked that bit about it being so hard but because it was so gloomy and dark.. I mean I was playing only single player (slow internet connection) so perhaps it felt really gloomy to me because of that.. but it felt slow and boring.. no BG music… everything is so glomy and sad.. i pushed myself halfway through because I enjoyed the challenge but then just could’nt go on with that sadness :/
            Although.. there is one thing that pissed me off.. the HIT BOX.. man the Hit boxes were all over the place.. really pissed me off.. now please dont say that is a challenge.. that is just lazy work :/

            I’ll do normal for my first play and then try, no reflex-hard-no enemy marking-no enemy has seen you indicator (That white curve that comes on scree in GZ) 😀 I’m playing on normal first because of the huge world.. gotta get used to that first 😀

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Truth. That’s why I like rewards but now days like you said everyone expects everything to be handed.
            Do you know how many people act cheated if they can’t finish a trophy because of difficulty? It HAS to be bugged they say heh
            The original MG took me 6 months to get through game without dying and to get the cheats the right way 🙂

          • Jonny McLaurine

            My most remnered games seem to be the most difficult games. Like mg1, contra, phantasmagoria 1, res 1 God that’s just old school not counting new IP like dark souls etc. took a year to 100% dark souls . Was so much fun though

          • Big_Boss88

            Contra kicked ass, oh maan that game bring back memories :)! I never heard of MG1 until I had played MGS1 in 1998. I still play some of the old games on emulators once in a while :). Sega Megadrive-console has some of my most favorite games from my younger days <3, some of them might not have been that hard compared to NES games but still a huge blast to play.

            Jonny if you're interested trying some old games out, I suggest you check these ;).

            Gunstar Heroes also got the best coop in Sega imo 😀 and kickass OST.

            Kid Chameleon was pretty darn hard game when I was kid. Long game and some difficult levels.

            P.S. I love Dark Souls :)!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea my kids play with emulators. I’m not very computer competent, why I prefer consoles to pc.
            Yea mg is just a good game to understand where the stealth concept came from. What’s funny is the actual first mg had nothing todo with big boss. There was col. Mc taffy and like a general or emperor cockatoo lol or something . Later on it changed. Well mg2 has cokamoo and mg1 was col mc taffy.
            I play anything and everything. Recently bought a vita for that MGS on there. Haven’t played yet though. Thinking about getting a wii U for Mario an zelda

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I had wrote a long reply but I lost it idk damn phone . Yea I love gaming , if it’s a good game , I’ll buy a system jus for it. Got a vita for MGS. Bout to grab a wii u. I’m on ps4 and xb1 damYodead I play everything

          • Big_Boss88

            Don’t worry your reply is below this :). Yeh hard to write with phones sometimes.
            I’m kinda console and pc lover. I hope you enjoy Vita, I’ve been really satisfied with it myself 🙂 lots of RPG games and can play PS1 games + PSP games etc. Link it to your PS4 also ^^.

            Only bad thing is about MGS Portable Ops and Peace Walker on Vita, is that there is no trophy support. It is because it’s PSP game so :(… But on PS3 the HD collection has trophies for it.

            Well it don’t really matter much in the end, because I play games for enjoyment and for the love ;). Never tried Wii consoles but I maybe buy some day :). Sure I might add you if want, I’m B1g_Boss88 on PS4/Vita :P. I play pretty many games too, but recently had no time when I spend my evenings here haha ;D … or then watching Netflix etc. Need to continue my unfinished games and MGS replaying !

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Hell yea Netflix ha. That’s our family nights unless I’m gamin. Then my wife just watches kids and I get it in.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea I doubt we will be dd in mp. Haha but that would be my Playstyles. I don’t like using guns in mp or I’m a sniper. In bf4 I have over 100k head shots I beleive. Ain’t played Ina bit.
            I see myself in MGO having more than 100k kills with knives 😉

          • Shalashaska

            haha same here, Im a precise assault rifle user (I use the quick aim, one shot accurate technique in most of my games) but MOSTLY sniper.. had 2+ KD ratio in CounterStrik! 😀

          • Big_Boss88

            I always got owned in CS.

          • Shalashaska

            For some reason, I never got owned in First person shooters.. The first time I ever played on an xbox was at my friends place and we played COD MW2 .. I defeated each and everyone of them and they were like 8 of them… So they went like “man youre hustling us!” … haha and that was the first time i ever touched an xbox.. but i guess it was because of my experience at CS .. At CS, Some guys are TOO GOOD to play with but thats how you learn.. Many kids will whine about how pros kill them but used to ALWAYS try and play with real pros so that I could get better and eventually, I did get much better… the more you practice Cs, The better you get.. but you have to practice around both guys your own level and those above you so you learn tactics and shooting 😀

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Oh yea I love CS. I played but never got serious with it. My brother went to competition tournaments for CS back in the day.

          • Shalashaska

            Damn thats cool.. CS tournaments usually pay big.. oh wait.. now that is Dota’s place.. man the world has changed.. now people are playing dota tournaments and not CS.. :/

          • Big_Boss88

            If I lose them, I’ll maybe continue and see how it effects story. Then next playthrough I do it more careful the other way around. I’m a cautious player usually in games so I think I be okey.

            But I wonder if there is certain part in the story cutscenes that we will lose them anyway. I mean BB will pull the trigger on Quiet etc, that kinda thing. Damn I can’t wait to find out >.<…thinking all of this make me ultra hyped.

          • Shalashaska

            Im sure each one will have an attachment to Bboss so i’ll keep them alive no matter what.. i’m one of the one playthrought/first playthrough see everything type.. I want to see EVERYTHING the game offers in the first playthrough and then in my second and third i’ll do things differently .. perhaps not meet quiet or kill DD.. etc etc

            Perhaps we will at hte end.. or mayb not..who knows.. there is outer heaven in the end perhaps so mayb they’ll survive..we’ll have to play the game to know that now 🙂 Hoping for march.. it’ll be my birthday 😀

          • Mini gear

            hoping for march as well, its my birthday too

          • Shalashaska

            awesome.. wouldn’t that just be the best birthday gift ever ? xD

          • Mini gear

            nothing better

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice congratz to you both :O…

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea maybe they will survive ;D. Hmmm actually now that I think of it, I AM also the kind of “see everything” type of player in games for first time. Always searching places, doing all side quests etc in RPG games and so on. So I will do it now too XD…

          • Shalashaska

            ha NICE! Although I will have to avoid The Internet because of spoilers for a while after the game releases .. I dont want to even get the slightest hint of the ending.. 2 years of waiting goes down the drain if i come to know the ending somehow :’/ So I’ll do EVERYTHING in my first playthrough.. play all the way to the end, all the side quests and everything, THEN i’ll come online.. Or perhaps i’ll do the main storyline and then come online .. atleast that way, the main story will stay mind blowing for me 🙂
            Thinking about spoilers.. I feel sad for you MODS now.. you guys will have to delete spoilers, yes ? damn man.. better finish the game quickly, THEN come online so it does ruin it for you

          • Big_Boss88

            That is good idea, someone spoiled GZ ending to me when noticed it accidentally in youtube. Or that dude said something like, “Paz got 2 bombs” -___- …

            I refused to believe it of course lol, but that shocking stuff happened to be true… So yea must avoid them spoilers, although I’m mod now and gotta remove them lol ;O. So I must maybe encounter them when game release draw near.

          • Mini gear

            a mod must sacrifice everything for there fourm

          • Big_Boss88

            Yep even my soul, but I’m proud to be sacrifice haha ;). lol :3

          • Shalashaska

            Same here.. I was on youtube when i read Paz has two bombs and she dies and blows up and what not.. completely ruined the moment for me :/

            oh yea.. some people get access to games earlier .. in that case.. I wish you luck but If that doesnt happen, I suggest you finish the main story line immediately, then come online, do your job and everything and Then get back to soaking in TPP .. That way, you wont lose your brain over having your ending ruined 🙂

          • Big_Boss88

            Yea I remember some people playing GZ again on PSLive on PS4, few days before I got my pre-ordered GZ. This was the reason I got spoiled, and well other reason was my own foolishness for watching my usual MGSV trailers and demos in youtube ;).

            Aye need to figure out how I do it, but I dunno if I can finish it immediately. It is like a crime to finish MGS game fast on first time. Still I’m not the only mod so will manage :).

          • Edward Wokhands

            It takes me about 10 times longer than it should to complete an RPG because I have to search EVERY corner and speak to every NPC 3 or 4 times.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            A game like MGS TPP being open world. There is 0% chance you will see everything first play through. I am saying this only because I’ve heard you got Africa afghanistan Cyprus and more than likely a mountainous area and a ice region. Knowing how GZ works we can assume that each fortress / mission will have extra missions (side ops ) in same areA where mission was. Ok so let’s assume over 150 regular missions x 3 or 4 side ops a mission. Ok lol we getting close to 1k missions hell half of that is 500 that’s a lot. I’m assuming also not fact

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Ground zeroes really does tell us a lot about mission structures I believe. Makes sense to keep the same. Even 150 regular missions is beast. Now think of all the unlocks you can get. They will be dumping DLC chapters later. I guarantee that. They need money , so they gonna milk this bad boy for everything they can.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I hope so. TPP, Mario Kart 8 and The Last Of Us are the only games I’ve wanted DLC for. You can guarantee TPP DLC will be good too.

          • Mini gear

            only dlc I wont have complaints about, since kojima gives actual stuff made after games instead of holding content

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah because he makes a piece of art, not a thoughtless product that exists for no other reason than to vacuum money from people without offering anything in return.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Kojima just tweeted that he is boarding his plane. Showed a pic of rainy plane window . The tweet before he said “snowing hard…”
            It’s not snowing in his picture. Either kojima-San dabbles in cocaine or he gave us a clue about trailer for Tapei!!!!

          • Mini gear

            snow map maybe?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I’m fricking hoping. That would be a hard map with a buddy. Though DD would be the best , look like dirty snow!

          • Shalashaska

            lol, Who is saying Im gonna do the last mission ? Hehehe i’ll wait and do everything else first then head to the last mission..and Ofcourse i dont plan to 100% the game in my first playthrough but i do plan to see AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE 🙂

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Haha I was fU kin wit u

          • Edward Wokhands

            Same here, no way am I losing Quiet or DD. Or even D Horse.

          • Mini gear

            imagine all the walking without a horse T_T

          • Edward Wokhands

            It’ll just make the game last longer! =D=D=D=D=D=D

          • Shalashaska

            You meant crawling ? 😉

          • Shalashaska

            Yea, Im gonna Get a White horse IDENTICAL to The Boss’s if I can and give my life to protect it till the end of the game and see what happens 😀

          • Big_Boss88

            Oh right how did I forget mention my precious Horse, cant imagine traveling without it. 🙂

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I guarantee that you will be able to suit dd up. One of the main things about current war dogs that is amazing is the 75k$$ bullet proof vests. so think hideo and think of all the shit we will be able to give dog

          • Shalashaska

            Diamond TEETH!

          • Big_Boss88

            Wow that is pretty cool, I have no idea how they train dogs in war these days. Still kinda sad imo that dogs be used in war ;(… I will take good care of my DD.

            Anyway yep I’m now sure we can customize them somehow, ’cause TPP will be huge with all sorts of things we can do and R&D development items etc. And the “bond” with buddies go higher the more use them too so can maybe unlock many things.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Serious you wanna see ideas about war dogs. You tube war dog training. They have goggles for halos. Bullet proof vests. Cameras. Respond to whispers with mics and can kill quietly and spy not being noticed because they can fricking crawl

          • solidsnack

            definitely i’d love to see DD with a pink diamond collar ripping out throats lol i bet they will add some sort of customisation like we’ve seen with the D-horse extra gear setup. i’m obsessed with this game already man.. i’m hoping it comes out before i go back to uni!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea idk I’m pretty good with games haha. If it handles like GZ then I won’t be worried about losing my buddy because as long as you move slowly it’s easy to get away.

          • solidsnack

            yeah i’ve gotten very comfortable with GZ myself it feels like home now! so i won’t be too worried about actually losing support buddies – i’ll be careful – but the tension will be real since once they’re gone they’re gone for good 🙁

          • Edward Wokhands

            Maybe you can see through DD’s eye and BB’s eye at the same time to get 3D vision!

    • Shalashaska

      DD be like “Wtcha looking at? I’ll chop yo head off.. around here, I’m Boss”

    • Big_Boss88

      My DD will be ultra badass hero, like “Silver Fang” in the 80’s-90’s dog anime from my childhood ;D.

  • CaptainBKM

    Its near.
    I can feel it in my bones.
    Can you?

    • Mini gear

      I feel the trolling

  • Vegas

    The giant pictures they place on these shows always make me want to play TPP on a PS4 xD

  • Big_Boss88

    What if Kojima-san announce a new hat, something like this in Taipei xD
    https://40.media.tumblr.com/7a20d12d2ccc0c28011748cf16e750c8/tumblr_nihepvKC1H1s3f5d6o2_r1_500.png

    • Shalashaska

      I will literally bang my head on the wall so I forget Taipei game show ever happened 😛

    • Mini gear

      then I give up on kojima and hibernate like a bear

      • Shalashaska

        Like a sheep, you mean? xD You know.. sometimes you really wish humans could hibernate..just fall asleep and fast forward time Phantom Cigar style.

        • Mini gear

          if only we had a phantom cigar 🙁

  • Mini gear

    I hope o big spoilers like another buddy are there, I still want surprises when we eventually play this

  • Mini gear
    • Big_Boss88

      Hmm not sure what time they showing stuff and will it be watchable there. But gotta go sleep soon anyway so :(…

      I shall read tomorrow whatever info has come out :). Few days more for the interesting presentation.

  • Big_Boss88

    Dammit, I had other things to do around the house again. But instead I spent all that time chatting here ;D.

    Nyxus and everyone nice work for making this such addicting site, you’re pretty good. Well I’m off now :P…

  • Javier Sosa

    A store in my country has started the presale. This is like 116 u$s. Anyway I’m going to download it.

    • Mini gear

      whats that?

      • Javier Sosa

        A presale of the phantom pain in a store of argentina.

    • RJRO

      are you from argentina?

      • Javier Sosa

        Si

        • RJRO

          Me parecia, por el ridiculo precio de los juegos.

          • Javier Sosa

            Compré la ps4 solo porque en mercadolibre venden los juegos digitales alrededor de $300. Mil no pagaría, por mas amor que le tengo a metal gear.

    • vic boss

      Are you from Mexico? or Argentina? Anyways I think is good that more stores are taking preorders, I think the release window or date is near.

      • Javier Sosa
