A new picture of Snake in the bipedal mech, with some commentary by Kojima

Today Kojima actually shared an image of Snake in a vehicle other than the famous chopper: the mech seen at the end of the E3 2013 trailer. Aside from two legs, the device also seems to have at least one arm with a hand, complete with fingers.

MGSV-Snake-in-Mech

Here are two images from the E3 2013 trailer:

MGSV-Snake-in-Mech-E3-2013-Trailer

MGSV-Mech-E3-2013-Trailer

It seems to be the same device but with a slightly different setup: instead of the hand its extendable arm is equipped with a rifle. Maybe you can customize it and switch arms, much like Snake himself – though the one shown above is attached to the side of the machine while this one retracts inside. Also, it looks like the mech on the picture above has a gun on the left side.

A similar mech also appeared in the Metal Gear Online trailer, armed with a minigun:

Metal-Gear-Online-TGA-Screen-Mech

In another tweet Kojima mentioned how he’d been taking his buddies with him on missions – first DD and this week Quiet. However, Quiet had been injured during the mission and had to be transported to the medical bay. So now it was just Snake and the pilot, and a whole lot of empty seats, making Kojima feel quite lonely. That’s why he decided to take a ride in the mech: “I wanted some company, so I took a mecha out for a spin.”

Furthermore, he also talked a bit about the freedom of this new open world Metal Gear (translation by JunkerHQ):

“MGSV is an open-world “free infiltration” game, as opposed to a linear game. This doesn’t just mean that the maps are big; infiltration routes, approach to intel gathering, time of day, equipment, means of transport – these are all up to the player. We have to ensure there is freedom that is not only logical but allows for spontaneity. What I’m doing right now is resolving problems that have appeared, without altering the level of freedom.

From morning till night, I continue to put the game together while playing it on real hardware (the same environment in which players will play the game). Of course, I still have meetings to attend and things from the various teams to go check in-person.

It seems like some people aren’t happy with all the photos from the chopper I’ve been tweeting lately? But I’m afraid this can’t be helped because I can only take photos during breaks lol.”

Kojima-Productions-Tour-Kojima-Station-32-7

Kojima checking MGSV: The Phantom Pain (Kojima Station 32)

It seems like development isn’t always going smoothly, judging by Kojima’s following metaphor. He compares it to a mountain climbing trip were everything goes wrong.

“Let’s say we planned to go mountain climbing as a team. We research, train, create a map, gather equipment, do a simulation, and then go do it for real. But the map is wrong, the weather is terrible, the route is blocked, we took the wrong equipment, the air is thin, someone gets sick, and so on – the situation is nothing like we thought it’d be. When we actually did the climb, problems occurred.

Creating a game is like making a movie or other things. You encounter various problems on the road to completion. From big to small. But you can’t complete what it is you’re making if you don’t resolve these. We don’t have the option to climb back down and change mountains at this point. It’s about racking our brains to figure out how to get to the top. That’s the real joy of where we’re at right now.”

But hey, this is Kojima, and he will eventually reach the summit.

    Sooo they added the arm this time to mini metal gear….im betting the head on it is used for better scanning/tagging enemy’s in the area (or better targeting system)….also notice the quite different/unseen vegetation…i think this might be connected to the picture he posted with C-box and DD last time……but then again those palm trees kinda makes my conclusion half-correct….guess we need to do the hardest of things…………..wait 😀

    • flying_fox

      Hmm you’re right, there’s something new with this landscape, it’s definitely not Afghanistan this time. And it doesn’t look like what we’ve seen of the African jungle either.

      • MrVux007

        i pointed out that this might be Cyprus by the vegetation…..

        • flying_fox

          Yes, I remember. But I’m hoping for a new location in South Africa / Lesotho, some kind of mountainous area. Maybe this could be it.

          Or maybe it’s just another part of the “Middle Africa” map we’ve already seen…

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Man, l’m Greek and l have done my military service in Cyprus. If The Phantom Pain has Cyprus as a playable map, l’ll be VERY proud!! Maybe l’ll get a chance to invade the military base/camp l served! Woooooohooooohhhhh!! 😀

          • MrVux007

            when were you in the service man and what was the name of your division ? 🙂

          • ObsessedGeorge

            I was in ELDYK’s 1st Motorised Infantry Battalion (don’t know if this term exists in English, but that’s what it’s called in Greek). I served in 2010 and it was an amazing experience. 🙂

          • MrVux007

            Ελληνική Δύναμη Κύπρου(aka ELDYK)? thats something like *Greek forces in Cyprus* ….so your not in the service anymore im guessing ?

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Yeah, that’s it. No, the Greek military service lasts for 9 months, so l’m done with it. Are you Greek too?

          • MrVux007

            no im not ….but im currently *learning* it since my girlfriend is from there…. 😀 she helps a lot with the language…the language itself isnt to hard,but boy the grammar (like in almost every new language) is so facking hard

    Also..top right side.. those far away trees.. doesnt that look like a airport tower.. im guessing its a base!

    And As a guy living in somewhere in the world and having no idea what Afghanistan looks like, I CAN STILL BET YOU THAT IS NOT AFGHANISTAN! The whole structure of the mountains looks different
    P.s – There are lines in the BACKGROUND.. That seems REALLY fishy.. I dont think Pop-in would do that and ESPECIALLY NOT THAT much on nex gen consoles.. plus.. he would never show Pop-in to everybody to see 😛 Thats fishy.. hmm..Kojima.. you CAN NOT HIDE FROM THE PATRIOTS!
    Now Honestly.. Why are there lines in this one ? I dont think I saw this before or i might just not have noticed o_O

    • Are you talking about the diagonal lines? Because that’s caused by the screen (when you take a photo of a screen). It’s called a moiré pattern: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moire_pattern

      But yeah there seems to be more vegetation in this area, though it still could just be a more fertile area or something.

      • Shalashaska

        i know but It wasnt so prominent before O_o Mayb I was blind and just got my eye sight back or maybe because almost all the pictures were in the darkness of a Chopper :/

        True.. that could a be a thing .. lets hope this guy gives us a date soon.. no news from Dest.PS either :/

        • Edward Wokhands

          I think we’re underestimating just how big these areas are going to be. I think Afghanistan will go from desert to more fertile areas. Look at the photo a user posted above, the whole place is green.

          Kojima has very purposefully shown like 3 areas hasn’t he? Afghanistan, the same base twice or 3 times? And then a tiny part of Africa. Dear God I don’t know what to think, I’m too excited and annoyed at the same time.

  • Big_Boss88

    Oh god, that looks so beautiful! Can’t wait to ride this beast and upgrade it with all kinds of cool things :D!

    What could that number mean, release date or just something else :O … !?

    • Mr.Pony

      Rideable Mechs awww yesss, all it needs now is lasers. starting to realize why the long wait for that release date, so much content and small things

      Ps: Mini gear is that you? xD

      • Mini gear

        im a weapon to suepass metal gear XP

        • Big_Boss88

          I knew it ;D ! Our ultimate weapon.

        • Mr.Pony

          Then tell us, is that the release date?! Tell us or we’ll send you to scraps and make you into Mother Base’s toaster!

          • Big_Boss88

            lol XD

          • Mini gear

            kaz… im already a toester

          • Big_Boss88

            RIP

    • Solid O. #V

      Hopes for GDC or PAX East next week.

    • Shalashaska

      He probably did that to cover huge areas.. because you know.. cars, choppers and bikes are too mainstream xD

  • A metal Chocobo, lol.

    By the way, interesting that NOBODY mentioned those numbers in the metal gear. 25-6… 25th June?

    In any case, in both metal gears (the one from the MGO3 and this new pic) show the same numbers. So it could be just nothing. 🙂
    I doubt Kojima knew the release date in December (when MGO3 video was shown) and now he wants us to realize of it more clearly.

    • Alex

      Clutching at straws, as usual with the entire MG community.

      • Jason Mounce

        It makes the MG community more imaginative and open-minded to discuss their every thought and happiness to discuss their favourite series.

        Narrow-minded shrills like yourself are so used to huddling in a corner and reflecting your issues onto others or making fun of others to compensate your own problems. What negativity could spawn by simply imaginatively hoping for something whimsical? It does no harm in others, they aren’t putting their lives on the line in saying their random theories are or have to be fact, everyone openly speculates with eachother because everyone loves the series and likes to feel like a group of friends.

        You? Clearly not, just an outcast looking for attention by jabbing at activities that you do not understand and so you do what all simple-minded plebeians do – attack what you don’t understand, and don’t care to understand.

        gg. Just because you don’t know what a tight-knit group of friends who like to openly-discuss their ideas with eachother, without feeling as if their thoughts will be slandered by a twit – doesn’t mean it’s inherently negative. Try to Live once in a while, you know? Also – just noticed, you Thumbed up your own post, you do realize how pathetic that is, right?

        • Kol Leqejza

          than i’m a retard myself. alex’s point is valid. reading through MGI’s comment section is a pain in the ass… can’t read it w/o ocassionally doing facepalms.

          i love nyxus & his efforts, though. best mgs news source out there.
          even yongyea can’t compete.

          • Jason Mounce

            It’s not valid. He’s adding negative connotations to something that is completely grey, neutral, harmless, something that isn’t inherently negative and basically demonizing it when everyones’ having a good time looking for clues for something, even if it turns out wrong. Everyone is having fun about it.

            If you have a problem reading through the comment and you have some stupid shit to say to burst someones bubble, then don’t read the comments. Cause clearly seeing other people have harmless fun affects you drastically. That somehow, the fans of MGS creating conspiracies and ‘grasping at straws’ with hopes to find some clues to a game they anticipate is just idiocy to you or something pathetic.

            ‘I’ have a problem with people, like you then, who I can easily label as simply, a Party Pooper. There is NO HARM with what anyone is doing, nor does it negatively affect you for creating conspiracies because they all share the same thing, and that’s a desire to learn what secrets exist about the universe without abstract or solid evidence due to the fact that the game is surrounded in mystery until Launch, and that they know Kojima is a really sneaky perfectionist and enjoy finding things out before others do, like Yongyea does.

            It’s easier to spout negativity and hate than it does to positively criticize or positively praise something. These ‘Conspirators’, whether Far off or not – are having Fun. Unlike you, who’s generating negativity by labelling them for it. So, I label You for it in response. You can agree or disagree with someones’ theories or hypothesis or conspiracies, but to label or call people out on it is inarguably rude and obnoxious.

          • Alex

            Thanks for the essays Jason, you should probably stay away from the internet if that much negativity upsets you. Also the implication that a comments section should be exclusive to positive comments, quit sucking on your mother’s tit and grow up.

          • Jason Mounce

            No problem, I write essays with ease since of the amount of cognitive thinking I do – Unlike some people.

            Also, allow me to clarify, negativity does not upset me. As I myself am also a negative person and temperamental, the difference being I Hate the Haters or give my negativity to those that clearly deserve it, whilst people like you, unjustly give hate to those that don’t deserve it. I don’t get upset by the negativity, more or less, I get upset and Hate stupid people. So, I do the right thing in my mind and call them out on it.

            Not implying the comment section is strictly for ‘Positive Comments only’, of course. But if you’re going to disagree with someone and add Just criticism, by not making it Constructive criticism and clearly making it JUST a toxic post that’s merely Hate and negativity and zero constructivism makes it borderline Spam and asinine idiocy. I’d not expect you to understand this kind of logic, especially since I already see you as an idiot and doubt you can dig yourself out of that label. Evidence also suggests that when you go towards ad hominems and say I’m sucking my mothers tit and that ‘I’m’ the one needing to grow up because you can’t handle having someone disagree with your own disagreements is pretty ironic.

            You infact are Grasping at straws in order to counter-argue with me. You couldn’t even come up with a good comeback or a rebuttal. My point still remains with the classic phrase of “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all” – with the addition of “Unless it’s constructive and gives feedback/input.” Without input, posts like yours are Garbage, as is your opinions.

          • Alex

            You’re out of your mind, because this clearly has upset you.

            For the record, I used to post on MGSF, and got tired of the same negative discussions bashing Hideo Kojima, but guess what I did? I quit, I didn’t waste my time trying to police what everybody said. I get that you don’t like toxic posts, but this is the internet dude, it’s kind of what happens.

          • Jason Mounce

            You got me. I’m totes upset as I calmly write these posts. Drats, I’ve been foiled again.

            Surrenderism isn’t Victory, just letting you know. ‘Giving up’ does not associate with trumping over something. The internet is full of toxic, yes, that is definitely true. However, I’d not say what I’m doing is ‘policing’ but rather, some passive-aggressive guidance. 😛

            If you try to assert a desire for Change, and with hopes that that change is not ultimately malicious but is moreso the desire that people understand one-another rather than attack. Like, you had no reason to attack and stereotype the MG community and generalize these people. By telling me that you found it a waste of time and ‘gave up’, it’s relatively what I go against, I firmly believe that if you want change and you don’t like how a situation is, you have to Fight for change and hope that it can be directed positively. Some conflict is necessary for there to be Peace, Peace and understanding cannot come to be without conflict of minds, words and actions. Giving up, because you found it a waste, thus, is just Surrendering to a conflict you care not to try to correct.

            I’m a person of Action. That and I’m a tough-love kinda guy so, take it or leave it, I’m trying to tell you to fix up your shit and if you’re gonna criticize, slander, stereotype, generalize a community, GIVE FEEDBACK or don’t speak at all. You could tell your Ma’ that her mashed potatoes are shit at Thanksgiving Dinner, or you could instead rephrase that to say: “They’re a bit dry, I think they need more butter” – Get my drift? Don’t be a dick to your mother.

          • Alex

            If my post didn’t annoy you, we probably wouldn’t be in this back and forth. Your blatant irritation is fine, just don’t try and be the white knight who has to tell everyone what to say because it doesn’t meet your criteria, or it isn’t nice enough. How naive can you be ? Basically, unless you’re the admin, you can fuck right off and you know it.

          • Jason Mounce

            I said the negativity didn’t upset me but that the Stupidity that you possess annoys me. Learn to read and understand the difference, your stupidity is genetic, your chosen words do not upset me, it’s the understanding that your ignorance infact exists and isn’t deliberate that wounds me subtly.

            I’m questioning your ability to perceive and understand what reactions equate to ‘irritation’, you’re exaggerating the symptoms you claim I have when I’m continuing to calmly talk to you, even if I’m talking Down to you, that is not a causal reasoning to say that I must be ‘blatantly irritated’. Your perception is flawed and infatuated with the notion that you have power to rustle people when it’s not your power doing such a thing.

            You also seem to not know what a White Knight is, using terms that seem outside your grasp, here, I’ll help out that stunted brain of yours by giving you the description:

            White Knight
            “A person (usually a male) who sees the typical maiden in distress, and believes that he can help her. A male version of the “mother figure” that some girls become.”

            So I ask of you, which maiden am I rescuing?….

            Your stupidity knows no bounds, I’m calmly informing you of this, it seems that your agenda is to think of me as irritated for some reason, likely to stroke your ego that you’re causing a reaction in someone by saying something stupid, a means to make yourself feel alive – in a very minimalistic way of feeling purpose in life. This is my last post because you’re dragging this on and have revealed yourself to be helpless and unable to co-exist with others. I am no admin, and I choose to not fuck off – I advise that you fuck right off though if you have nothing nice to say to those in the community 😀

            Good luck with that. While Alex pretended and desired to Tigger me timbers, he really didn’t.

            If my very Grade 12’esque English words seem ‘sophisticated’ to you, welp. I got not much to say, cause they weren’t all that sophisticated or complicated.

            dude, don’t u get that ur the intolerant one here? u assume of alex, or what the fuck his name was, that he’s anti metal gear or don’t know shit. maybe he read ALL the news and almost all comments like the most of us here. so what gives u the right to be so ignorant only because he critizize an idea? if we all have to say hell yes everytime to something who says something dumb tgan we will have the holocaust all over again.

            we’re on a discussion board for pete’s sake… it always will be opinion vs. opinion.

            and i’m with alex on this one. i have read a lot of bull in here: chico is quiet, big boss is gray fox, chico is solid snake, that the release date is hidden in the chopper in GZ menu, quiet is sniper wolf or related to the end… just because people just jump to their first conclusion.

            and i read whatever i want to. sometimes there are cool links & strong ideas & opinions i want to know. even if i have to go through all that shit first.

          • Jason Mounce

            Are you wasted right now? I don’t think you can properly analyze the situation, just move along as if you didn’t see anything.

          • Big_Boss88

            Come on guys stop arguing who is correct etc, we’re all different kind of fans and have different opinions on stuff.

            I know you wanted to def your ideas and made some good points. I sort of didnt like what Alex said either, but it just his thoughts. I think we should just all try get along nicely as people in MGI usually behave :), instead of continuing this endless discussion.

            Peace to all of you ;)…

          • Jason Mounce

            To be fair. I’m not arguing with him, he’s simply accusing my attitude. My main point simply was that people in a community shouldn’t be falsely labelled and I continue to stand by that. lmao.

            Not like I enjoy if things go on forever, I’d have been good just making One post which Critique the critic. However, conflicts are ‘a difference’. There’s bound to be conflict, just depends on what and if there’s something to learn from it. If nothing is learned from a conflict, THEN it’d have been a waste.

          • Big_Boss88

            Yeah I understand, and sorry I sometimes choose wrong words lol ;). Anyway, I stand by that reasoning too that shouldnt falsely label so easily as you said. But Kol said in that one post couple good things too imo, so I guess Im like a neutral dude lol.

            Just hoping you two can chill 😀 was all I meant. There is a certain line when I might use my mod powah, but usually hoping its not necessary if ppl get along well while speaking their minds. Cheers ^_^.

          • Jason Mounce

            I’m neutral until someone says something stupid. 😛

            I’m chill currently :p? That is a good perspective and stance to have when one has Powers, it’s best to have a neutral stance, so confirmation bias or favouritism or power-mongering does not seep into ones ego. I respect that.

            I’m a full time University student undertaking Psychology Behaviour & Neurosciences. As much as taking your answer seriously would be commonly a redundancy, I can easily boast that a job is not as important as it is for me to get good grades in this field so that I can do what I do best, and that will be to become a counselling psychologist – then at that time, I will have a Good job, and I will have fun with my job, maybe you’ll arrive to one of my appointments for some needed therapy by then 😉 Hopefully in those 4-6 years that I’m continuing my education for the good of mankind, you’d have found a Life by then 🙂

            But by all means, please elaborate how your poorly-churned, uncreative attempt at insulting someone by insinuating that if they don’t have a job, that that must make them somehow a Bad person, stupid, or worthless?

        Its nothing.. not everyone is 100 % serious about the theories.. its like a bunch of friends and one dude gets an idea and blurts it out and the others go like “woah you know.. you could be right” and there a conversation starts.. Its not like we go like “hey you know, KOJIMA will DO THIS THIS AND THAT in the game and if you dont believe me, you should go away and youre not a MGS fan” .. nothing like that 🙂

        • Jason Mounce

          A calm way of explaining what I said. Lol. Though, I’ve concluded that he won’t understand that reasoning. He just wants to think that I’m an irritated person who’s wrong for some reason.

          • Vegas

            I understand your point, but if you overthink about a simple sentence and start looking frustrated, you might loose reason. A better answer to Alex would be just something like “we like clutching straws, makes us feel alive :D”. There was no need to acuse him of not being open-minded, it made you look arrogant and therefoe no better than him. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m just seeing myself a year ago in you. You loose yourself in arguments trying to prove your point, and even if you are right , your point was already lost because you let emotions overcome your reason. In your eager to defend our community (thank you!), you showed a dark side. Shalashaska, as you pointed, said as much as you with fewer words and no violence. That is what I am talking about. Think about what I said, I really just wanna help. Peace, buddy 😀

          • Jason Mounce

            Well, good thing I wasn’t frustrated – as I had to point this out over 500 times…

            My issue moreso is I make novels and I have typing issues with sentence fragments as my old English professors kept telling me. They praised me for my style of writing but kept attacking my essays for its fragments. Lol.

            Well, he was being closed-minded about his means of labelling others with a negative connotation. Arrogant? XD For calling someone out and stating the Truth?? That’s not how that word works.

            It’s lose….not Loose….hng. And no, I don’t ‘Lose’ myself in arguments. Whether or not you argued a lot in the past to now or however you implied does not make us comparable in any way, that’s grasping at straws in itself :l You’re insinuating I was being emotional ONTOP of that when all of my posts are written calmly and I emphasized repeatedly how I was as cool as an icecream bloody sandwich on a cold Canadian winter >_>……

            Well. What I can calmly tell you too though. Your post annoyed me more than any of Alexs’ combined. lmfao. Bravo on that.

            Reason why? Because you presume and reflect too much onto me, you’re so eager to think we’re like-minded in some way that you’re not including how you coud be off, you’re insinuating your analysis on me is what is – and are speaking with absolutism and I do Hate when people do that instead of using variables, that and gave me false labels with words that do not describe me and you used Loose instead of Lose twice – and I’m a grammar nazi. I’m not going to argue with you about this, buuuuut, that’s just my two cents. I ‘Hate’ when people try to analyze me and they’re off. If they’re right? Then I don’t care. If I flip a table and get annoyed it’s because I can see that a person isn’t trolling with their ‘analysis’ and it’s their genuine opinion and it’s Extremely off the mark.

            I’m sorry if i didn’t express other possibilities. Of course i can be wrong. And I don’t mean in any way to be rude with you. But you called a guy here in the comment section “stupid” and kept enphasizing how and why he is stupid. As i said, there is no reason for that, you can say 100 motives but i doubt they will justify this almost childish act, and if you act without a good motive it is purely emotional. You may be calm but you show frustration. I compared you to me to justify my critic as i want to help you, and i sincerely thought you’d understand what i meant. If not, i can’t do anything. Don’t think i am being arrogant, far from it, i just saw a very smart guy pissing at others and showing how smart he is, and remind me of myself. If you look back at your previous comments and don’t see this, i’m sorry to trouble you, i may be wrong. But… as you just said… i annoyed you more than him, so you stated your feelings yourself. As for my grammar, i am not a native speaker. In fact, my original english is far from english as it is latin origin (portuguese) and i have 17 and learned from myself. Sometimes i mistake myself and i like when people correct me, but only if it is for the right reason. But i won’t bother you anymore, there is no more point.

            I believe otherwise and that criticism of ones Actions must be pointed out. This is causality, and this is the reaction that happens in society as an informal norm. Someone acts out of line, people react in a way that they do to show that the person in question is being a deviant or is to be shamed as a warning. It’s how society runs and I’m using such correctional methods, and in my own way which also involves my temperamental attitude. If a person is obnoxious, mistreats others, labels others negatively, it is a citizens borderline duty to be expected to put them back in line verbally, socially, to push for resocialization via making the environment hostile as a reactionary method to prove a point. I control the situation, there is no emotions, only a long-term goal that either Works, or doesn’t work.

            That is not how emotions work or motives. I especially don’t require help when I precisely know what I’m doing and what I am not doing.

            Your English is fine, and there’s nothing that I didn’t interpret although that could mean maybe that some contexts of a word that we use natively that can correspond to annoy others more than other words or can be taken a bit more seriously can be true.

            To me, Emotions is to be comparable to ‘Anti-Logic’. My end-point with that paraphrasing in mind is that there is no point where I wasn’t being logical, everything I said was analyzed and used deliberately for a point and with logic, even if meant belittling someone, which doesn’t need emotions.

            … okay xD

          A fight? In MGI? Nonsense. We are all puppies here.

      • Big_Boss88

        If some people do that, doesn’t mean the entire community does.

        But that being said, I enjoy reading stuff that people notice just like this number and them theories. It most likely means nothing and seems silly to some people, but in my opinion it’s fun stuff to do/read while waiting for TPP release 🙂 and see what others think of it etc.

  • Golgari

    I didn’t like that Kojima use his phone to photo some stuff from his monitor. The quality is not very good because Fox Engine on screenshot and especially in a HD video looks so much better.

    I think it’s Afghanistan but with a more fertile area because Afghanistan area is not full of sand so expect to see some foliage, grass and trees.

    https://harryrud.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/valley.jpg

    • Big_Boss88

      Nice image.
      It could be one of the areas we know, because the terrain might change if explore more :). Still I am wondering how many more areas we get to play in :D.

      • Golgari

        I searched a lot of images from Afghanistan and it really has a lot of grass and foliage. Just google “Afghanistan grass”. You can find interesting images and think about MGSV location a bit more.

        • Big_Boss88

          Yeah it seems I have been misinformed of Afghanistan terrain. I never been there and movies I’ve seen usually show some desert parts from the country ;).

          http://images.all-free-download.com/images/graphiclarge/afghanistan_mountains_landscape_223726.jpg
          Mountain landscape 😀 pretty greenish and there was lots of more green ones lol, indeed find many nice photos thx. I can imagine TPP to change from desert to this when going further in story or exploring. Will be so amazing to finally get to sneak in Afghanistan and Africa ^^

          • Edward Wokhands

            Wow, that’s a great picture.

          • Plissken

            I’ve only seen the Kandahar and Helmand parts of Afghanistan, and there’s no foliage in the parts I saw

        • Kol Leqejza

          the location may be afghanistan in the game, but in reality kojipro scanned jordan for the afghanistan map.

          • Shalashaska

            As long as they SCANNED A REAL place.. all is well 😀

    • decoyF0XX

      I hope it’s a new location because that’ll be exciting! Anyway, looking at the background, It does seem like Afghanistan.

      • Yaro

        Palm trees might be Africa

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Afghanistan border – Tajikistan : 1929–1991 (Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic) was controlled by the USSR . It has cold weather with Really High peaks .

      Ismail Samani peak is the highest mountain in Tajikistan , in the former Russian Empire and later in the Soviet Union, named after Ismail Samani, the greatest ruler of the Samanid dynasty.

      Elevation7,495 m (24,590 ft) . It could be one of the Maps in Tpp .
      Prepare your Hype up to the sky

  • stocchinet .

    Wow, very stealth, enemies will have an hard time spotting snake, freakin’ cool tho…

  • Shalashaska

    Anyone online right now? I need a favor .. Check this out and tell me whether you hear any popping in the sound.. when on youtube i hear popping but on pc i cant hear any popping.. im hoping its just my pc reacting to youtube and not the video itself …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZ8lHUczXqc&feature=youtu.be
    P.s the popping is towards the begining .. in the first 2 minutes or so.. let me know anyone.. will be really grateful – This is the version im gonna submit to Donna but there is almost no time left so anyone.. please quickly..

    • Tibor

      you mean that sound that kind of sounds like heart beat ? I can hear that. it stops when that rewind sound effect starts.

      • Shalashaska

        thanks bud.. that is THE ONLY sound effect I want you to hear.. but other than that, i can hear a slight vibrating type of popping .. im guessing its only me because of my slow as hell pc causing the issue.. other than the heartbeat.. is there any other crappy sound ?

    • Golgari

      I like it a lot. Especially the start with Big Boss speech from PW at the start and Kaz speech at the end.
      But… would be better if Donna’s quality would be better. It’s hard to make it look better then that but really great work man.

      • Shalashaska

        Thanks alot, man.. I just submitted this on Donna’s page and saw a few other submissions.. and wow.. talk about blowing me out of the way… either way.. That’s the max i can do with a 900mb ram pc .. Hopefully in a week or 2 or a month, i’ll get a better pc and then you watch, I promise to blow your mind 😀 Right now I’m limited to video pad.. anything associated with photoshop or visio or any of those high end editing softwares require a minimum or 2-3gb of ram

        • Edward Wokhands

          It’s great. I hear zero popping. Maybe it’s your speaker cable? Have you tried different speakers/headphones? When Ocelot spins his guns it was really, really loud for me, that’s the only criticism but it’s not really a criticism. Overall it’s great.

          By the way what did you use to make it? I want to make some videos myself.

        • Edward Wokhands

          You should buy some RAM. It doesn’t cost much and I’ve read that it’s the most important factor in video editing.

    • Big_Boss88

      I didn’t notice this when watched it first time when net was lagging a bit, but at 1:17 there is this short weird sound. Like a fastforwarding video-type of sound or something, is this the one you meant? Or maybe you did it on purpose before Donna start singing 🙂 which actually fits quite well in the spot. But before that there is few pop sounds I think.

      But overall I really like this video! Keep up the good work buddy, and you will rise up to become a legend, legend even above The Boss. You’ll become Big Boss of editing ;D.

      I’d like to try too but I’m too lazy lol XD… -_-.

      • Shalashaska

        Thanks bud, My next video will focus on Big boss and Boss.
        yup, if you look carefully, I actually rewinded the bit where he smiles and the camera zooms into him.. initially i had the rewind a little longer but for some stupid reason I lost the work i did and i had to re-do, then when i was re-doing it it went broke and was crashing everytime i made the rewind longer so i had to cut it short ..initially, the rewind showed zooming out then big boss riding the horse in reverse.. had to cut that out .. stupid pc causes the most retarded and weird crashes sometimes :/

        Try video pad and then you can move to better editors, video pad is PRETTY easy.. trust me. Anyways, Im Dieing for another pc to get a better editor.. the minute i do, I’ll unleash all the effects/idea/tricks in my head and I have many.. trust me. I will have every kind of editing software installed for every kind of edit possible for the video. I’m know picture and im learning video editing by myself right now.. what is hard is sound.. its a pain in the A**

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmmm thx I’ll try maybe look into that editor :).

  • Javier Sosa

    It looks very uncomfortable.

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    *Off-Topic*

    According to IGN: The “2” Rising font teased at Taipei game show, was actually related to Metal Gear Rising after all !

    Bad news: It wasn’t a tease to a sequel. Not even an announcement. It was just an artwork to celebrate the second anniversary of the game lol.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/02/25/platinum-games-explains-metal-gear-rising-revengeance-2-tease

    Bullshit or nah?

    • Shalashaska

      1. Honestly do NOT expect ANYTHING related to MGS series to be true UNLESS said by THOSE who are in-charge.. doing so will only break your heart if it comes out to be false :'(
      2. About this – I call bullshit. You know why ? Because they , the creators, know that everyone wants a MGR 2, THEY KNOW it will be another hit and IM SURE someone somewhere is ALREADY working on it. The only reason it isnt announced and wont be is because of TPP.. because THAT way, when TPP release, almost all the hype will die for MGR 2 .. so yea.. they’ll wait till perhaps mgs TPP is released and played enough and THEN announce it. or maybe earlier too.. who knows..

      • Shalashaska Has Landed

        The one thing that has me giving them The Rock’s eyebrow, is that Platinum said it’s to celebrate the second anniversary, but somehow a “2” font image made its way to the Sony trailer before MGR1’s actual anniversary release date. Rising came out Feb. 19th. Tapei happened Jan. 28th and 29th lmao.

        Regardless, to your point, I’m not expecting anything. This would be a nonsensical “ruse” anyway. Not everything has to be some kind of deception protocol when it comes to Metal Gear marketing. Kojima Productions flat out denied having anything to do with it and even told the fans to inquire Sony about it instead of them. There’s no route for them to go in a “lolruse” without coming out as just one-dimensional liars.

        That, and I agree with you entirely lol. I don’t expect anything MGS related until it’s signed, sealed, and delivered.

    • Big_Boss88

      I think it is BS, but maybe they do real sequel in future after TPP.

  • Icycool

    The release date seems to closer than we are guesssing. It seems that the screenshots are frequently releasing.

  • Big_Boss88

    Also @Nyxus a translation from his japanese tweet if not posted yet:
    http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/02/25/new-metal-gear-solid-v-picture-showing-mecha-revealed-kojima-recounts-a-mission-with-lonely-ending/

    “I’ve been putting the game together while using DD as a buddy all the time. From this week, I have changed to Quiet. However, Quiet has been injured during a mission and transported to the medical facility. So, with the pilot, only two people are sitting in the helicopter. The seat is empty. I feel somewhat lonely.”

    So I guess Kojima then decided to take a Mini Gear with him to wreak some havoc in nuclearish anger, to pay back to them scumbags who hurt Quiet! Biggu Bossu, the lonely rider :).

    I will not let my buddies get hurt ;C …! I wonder how long it takes for the characters to recover from injuries :O.

    • Edward Wokhands

      >=O

    • Thanks, added!

      • Big_Boss88

        • Junker just did a translation as well.

          • Big_Boss88

            OK good to know :), btw how would Quiet get hurt when she’s super fast. Kojima must’ve become careless enjoying the scenery or something :D.

            Well it’s good to know she’s not immortal, so have to be careful when doing mission with any buddy I guess.

          • Tibor

            I hope we can improve our relationship with our buddy’s even without taking them out for a mission.

          • Big_Boss88

            Yep that would be great :D.

  • Shadow Rex

    I wonder if these “mini gears” have an AI in them. Also looking forward to the possibility of my troops walking around my Mother Base and FOB in them or unmanned.

  • MiniBoss

    I’m going to love this game so much.

  • Shalashaska

    “Let’s say we planned to go mountain climbing as a team. We research, train, create a map, gather equipment, do a simulation, and then go do it for real. But the map is wrong, the weather is terrible, the route is blocked, we took the wrong equipment, the air is thin, someone gets sick, and soon – the situation is nothing like we thought it’d be. When we actually did the climb, problems occurred.”
    THIS IS NOT good news to hear.. especially like around 2 weeks from GDC.. now even my hopes for GDC are crashing.. this line was basically like saying, “we arent getting what we want, and in this time .. you cant expect the game anytime in the next 6months” .. that basically means alot of work is STILL to be done in the game.. Man ffs Kojima.. you can release MGO later.. atleast give us TPP :/ Just bad man… my heart just broke.. we arent getting this game anytime.. Mark my words if we get a Release window, He will probably go like may-December because he knows he has to take every last second he has making this game perfect

    • Big_Boss88

      Is that from some twitter post? The first 4 lines I mean. OH LOL, nevermind it was updated there XD.

      Don’t worry Shala, we’re thinking of this too much. We get it soon :), well it make me feel better when I keep telling myself that lol. I still think June-November it come, or then maybe release at the very last minute and second of year 2015 haha :D. This long suffering waiting is worth it, and we will have good memories of it. And such good feeling for surviving all this time when the game finally releases.

      Then we will bow to Kojima for creating a perfect masterpiece again.

      P.S. I don’t really mind the sexy chopper photos. At least Kojima give us something and he don’t need to give us greater details of areas etc. While many other developers don’t even give any photos, Kojima share something with us TPP hungry fans every week be it chopper or not:). Also I guess now we know why he give them so much ;D.

      “But hey, this is Kojima, and he will eventually reach the top.” Indeed, take your time master Kojima just don’t let your climbing to top go into next year!

    • Raymondius

      This is descouraging… But we will wait no matter what. There is a happy ending for us after all.

            I haven’t actually listened to her much before, but damn she’s good. Made that one song for Dragon Age: Inquisition too it seems.

          • Shalashaska

            The Songs in he tavern/bar/forgot what you call it WERE AMAZING! Unfortunately, more than half the time, the game would glitch and only play half .. either instrumental or plain lyrics.. It still sounded good but you could tell it was a glitch :/ My favourite one was EMPRESS of fire in the reign of lion ! and the one about that thief girl (your partner) .. sorry ive forgotten the names.. havent played it for really long – Since i got mass effect 1 and 2 🙂 Wont be playing mass effect 3 anytime soon so i guess i should go back to DAI. BUT FIRST! DBZ XENO! Its sad that they didnt put SS3-SS4 for custom saiyans :'( Im so sad now.. i just found out :'(

            Edit – Just Checked my favs and found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cin4etTJiwk Check the other songs .. there are all so amazing. My favs were Nightingale’s eyes, Empress of fire, Sera was never, and samson’s tale.. now that i think of it, i dont remember listening to any other song in the taverns.. i liked all that i heard .. also the song that they sing in the cold night in the beginning of the game before reaching skyhold (I didnt play much so i didnt hear many)

        • Shalashaska

          yea.. i go thru the same crap everyday because i fear he’ll cancel it for old gen .. but then again.. he had began making it for old gen.. and a few months before release.. to cancel.. not good.. (dying light did 3 months before release .. 3 months .. what turds will do that.. im betting they didnt do any work on old gen, just said shit to hype it up :@ )

          • Vegas

            Ha Ha, I have new gen to play Dying Light! xD Just kidding. Actually some games are really being messed up in the old gen (Far Cry 4, Advanced Warfare, Thief, etc) to the point that they downgrade graphics a lot to stick by force into the ps3, but when I compared MGS GZ ps3 to ps4, I noticed a very good work of Kojima. Not only the graphics look very good on the ps3, but the game is smooth as a baby butt. And the better part is that the ps4 version is worth buying, since the graphics become significantly better and the gameplay feels more real and complete. This is good news to ps3 users since they will have an awesome experience, and not only the leftovers from the ps4. And about the ps3 cancel… don’t worry… In Kojima We Trust!

          • Shalashaska

            Theif – WAS SH*t and IT WASNT because of old gen graphics. Everything about the game was crap. The worse game I have played in the last 5 years.
            What they did with dying light was really Bad. Im so sure that those a-holes didnt ever want to port it, they just wanted old gen owners to watch and follow the game so they get hyped for it and buy a new gen for their game
            A.warfare wasnt all that bad, i ACTUALLY LOVED the game. Far better than recent COD titles (i play old gen btw)
            about the old gen game for GZ and TPP.. ofcourse.. he is supposed to make it good.. the fox engine was based off ps3 / xbox 360 kits.. not the new gen.. to make a horrible looking game would mean to show their fox engine isnt all that they say it is. and IM SURE they want people to KNOW how good their fox engine is .

      Our V will be bigger than R*’s V according to this

    • Ravenous

      Oh yeah, I saw that map estimation back when it was posted here in the comments the first time, but had sortof forgotten about it. Two maps of hopefully equal size, combined to make a playable area bigger than GTAV, and complete freedom to roam around on them still makes me alittle lost for words Oo

      Here’s to hoping that this estimate is anywhere near accurate, or maybe TPP will be even bigger with 3 or even 4 different locations 🙂

    • Shalashaska

        Wasn’t Last Guardian cancelled? Or is there still rumor/info about it being developed D: …

    Sadly Kojima is getting a lot of criticism, not only from the media but from his fans. Kojima is working endlessly to have The Phantom Pain released. So why are we not supporting him? Mr. Kojima deserves our respect for his dedication. I ask that the community of MetalGearInformer and those who are reading this, to tweet Hideo Kojima a letter of appreciation. Giving him our gratitude will undoubtably touch his heart.
    – thank you.

      Haven’t you seen Whiplash? Positive reinforcement is not good if you are achieving greatness. LOL ;P P.S. Objectively we can’t say that he’s doing a good job because the game is not out yet. We have to reserve judgment after we get our hands on it. And we have the right to vent out our frustration on the internet. The things you’re implying about the MGI community is completely erroneous. We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have utmost respect and love for Kojima’s work. That goes without saying so we focus on posting other things. I think your comment is out of line. Don’t belittle this community of fans and compare us to the likes of “media” or whomever you say criticize Kojima.

        I meant no disrespect to the MGI community. This is one of my favorite sites to visit everyday. I enjoy all the comments and humor you guys bring. Didn’t mean to get off the wrong foot.

      Not sure is he getting a lot of criticism, all that most of the fans just want to see is a release date. That’s about it and okey some went crazy about Quiet look when she was revealed in 2013 lol. Anyway, we know MGSV will be the best game ever.

      I’m sure all of us here in MGI have great respect for Kojima for creating the best and memorable game experiences during the years. Also if some criticize Kojima, it doesn’t mean that we here are not supporting him.

      I have thought before about doing a twitter account just to give him appreciation letter, and maybe I might do that.

    Would be awesome if we could pilot as big as Rex and Ray from MGS4 😀

    Though Peace Walker seems to be the tallest Metal Gear so far.
