Metal Gear Solid V will have a very deep and detailed weapon system thanks to Shinkawa, Kojima was blown away

Both Kojima and Shinkawa were on the latest episode of Kojima Station, and some interesting new information was unveiled. All credits for the translation go to JunkerHQ.

They are currently still in the phase in which they bring together the separate elements while keeping a high degree if freedom. So they’re not at the full scale balance and difficulty adjustment just yet.

MGSV-Chopper-March-4

In the announcement video for the release date, Kojima said they’re polishing the game as much as possible before release. According to Shinkawa, it will have the same attention to detail Metal Gear games are known for, despite its larger environments.

Kojima said the weapon system in the game will be ‘deep and detailed’. Initially he wasn’t interested in making it as deep, but Shinkawa put a lot of work in it and blew Kojima away with the end result. He even jokingly called Shinkawa a little nuts because of it.

Aside from the color your Mother Base, you’ll also be able to adjust that of your vehicles. You can also make custom emblems and put them on your suit, vehicles, flags and exterior walls of Mother Base (some screens can be found here).

Snake will carry the ballistic shield on his back when he isn’t using it (it will still deflect bullets). You can use your guns in combination with the shield.

As Kojima said before, this is the Metal Gear he wanted to make for a long time, but due to technical limitations it wasn’t possible before. While each new entry has always brought new things, this is the biggest step forward for the franchise. Kojima believes this is the best playing Metal Gear, but even though gameplay systems have changed significantly, it will still feel like a Metal Gear.

  • Bramdeman

    I have never, never been so hyped for anything in my life. It’s just insane.

    • RevolverRoden

      I think everyone can agree on this. I didn’t even know such hype could exist.

      • vishmarx

        the hype is obvious because its near certain itll be the best mgs game ever, which is one of the best game series already

      • Dynasty2021

        Ground Zeroes is just proof this game will be legendary,

        Unlike hype bullshit statements around The Order or Uncharted, we already HAVE the proof pre-launch.

        • Vegas

          I disagree on uncharted because the last 3 games were awesome so the hype is justified.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, I agree, Uncharted 4 will be a masterpiece, it’ll just be different to MGS. I love movies like The Godfather and Barry Lyndon and Shawshank but I also love Die Hard and Lethal Weapon. If MGS is Citizen Kane then Uncharted is Die Hard or Terminator 2. They both have their place and they’re both awesome. Uncharted is the summer blockbuster of gaming. I might actually go play through them, they really are awesome games, especially 2 and 3. 3 still impresses me graphically, it looks nicer than a lot of PS4 games.

            I’ve been wondering about The Order, I don’t know whether to buy it or whether I’m just considering it because we have so few new games to choose from.

          • Vegas

            Don’t waste your time on The Order. I’ve seen the gameplays and its just too generic and boring. Simple gameplay (when the gameplay happens wich is rare). Unless you want you play for graphics but i see no point. I suggest saving it for Batman ๐Ÿ˜‰ or MKX, whatever just not this.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Thanks, but damn. Once we started seeing proper gameplay footage I got a really bad feeling but still held onto hope that it could turn out great. I might give it a go when it’s in an 80% off sale. I’m considering trying Resident Evil Revelations and then 2, I missed those when they released and have heard good (and some bad) things. If they fail then I might try The Evil Within. Overall it looks like Phoenix Wright and Mario Kart 8 are my two most played games this year. Just shows what “next JEN HARDWHERE” brings us, never ending development and terrible, dull, short games.

            (Not saying this about MGS, time is being put into quality and innovation in that case.)

          • Vegas

            This new Gen in consoles is like giving diamond to a kid. They don’t know what to do, then we got this shitty games. The only games getting better are the Indies and inFamous SS got it right too.

          • Solidfox64

            Though I loved Uncharted 3, in my opinion this was quite a disappointment after playing Uncharted 2 for 50+hours. No tweaks and little replay-value.
            I hope that ND brings back features like skin or weapon cheats.

            I don’t think it would be the case for uncharted 4 though. It feels WAY to overhyped for its own good.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Just curious (not trying to start an argument) but what replay value did 2 have that 3 didn’t? Unless you mean multiplayer? 3 had some parts that people have argued are useless when it comes to moving the story forward but it’s an action game. Look at all the awesome action movies and comedy movies, they all have non sequitur scenes that contribute nothing other than entertainment. That tanker mission is one of the most impressive technical feats in gaming and was exciting to play. I really enjoyed 3. 2 was slightly better though just because of the spectacle of the whole thing. The train level for instance and the snowy setting was amazing. Then again the desert setting was almost just as good.

          • Solidfox64

            With replay value I meant the whole experience xombined (with those crazy tweaks.)
            Those tweaks are unlockable trough finding collectibles aka treasures. And in my opinion this feature made the game much better then what u3 currently is.
            You could change skins and even bring a grenade launcher to some levels where you couldn’t bring this kind of weapon in the first place.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Really? I’ve never really looked at the unlockables in Uncharted 3 but it is kind of crappy if they removed the Uncharted 2 ones. Then again they were made by separate teams. Uncharted 4 is being made by the Uncharted 2 team so you should be looking forward to it! As you said, just don’t overhype it. Try to ignore everyone elses hype.

          • Vegas

            I think overhyping most of the games is a bad way to go. MGSV really showed us that it WILL be good, at least awesome. We may get frustrated for one thing or another but the overral awesomeness is confirmed. Now Uncharted 4? Well… its just another Uncharted that may be the best of all them but I kinda doubt.

        • hunner

          Why do so much mgs fans hate games like uncharted and the last of us??

          • Edward Wokhands

            People hate The Last Of Us? :O The only people I’ve seen hate on TLOU and Uncharted are (and I hate saying this) PC fanatics. I was kind of shocked because it’s just obvious bias. I’m a PC fanatic by the way but I own a PS3. Then again maybe those games just aren’t for those people. We all have different taste. ยฌ_ยฌ

        • RevolverRoden

          Tbh I don’t even see how anyone can compare Uncharted (let alone the Order to MGS). It just doesn’t have that timelessness or … IDK how to explain it. MGS is life

    • Jason Mounce

      It makes being a student at University feel miserable, because priorities almost feel as if life is meaningless until I play this game and if I die before I get to play it …. I’d definitely become a vengeful ghost who’ll haunt people because I died with immense regrets. A part of my life will definitely be completed once I beat this game.

      • extermin8or2

        Not even just money screwing my gaming over but time…. physics degrees take up alot of time…:/ unless I want to fail ofc….

        • Jason Mounce

          Money doesn’t seem to be an issue for me because even though I’m in Univ, OSAP (Student loans) in Ontario/Canada gives me a decent sum of money, and I get a bit more since I’m not employed. I get lenience on how much I use because I did 2 years of college and got Transfer credits, so I pay less tuition due to not needing 5 programs a semester, but just 4. I got a lighter load every year for 4 years and get to pay less. The rest of the money can go to food expenses, and games ๐Ÿ˜€ Cause they definitely give me enough to pay my rent and tuition with a good few thousand remaining.

          I was also given a $1000 Bursary so, I can continue gaming. The only problem merely is yeah, Grades…. Don’t wanna fail XD Gl with that physics, I’d hate taking it. geh.

          • extermin8or2

            Wow… UK tuition fees are a loan, maintenance loan just about covers rent etc food and stuff… Well part time job or in my case pray your parents can afford it thank fully mine kind of can.

          • Jason Mounce

            Here we get loans that we have to pay back at a ridiculous amount at the end of our education, the taxing and rates attached to the interest that gathers is obnoxious.

            My parents have no involvement with paying off my own education, I ain’t no rich-family boy, hah.

        • Edward Wokhands

          I’m starting physics and computer science this September so I understand.

      • ChatWraithShichi

        Yeah it’s kind of scary. I don’t think I’m addicted to videogames (i probably am) but some game release date announcements make me feel like I’m just throwing my life into fast-forward.

        • Jason Mounce

          There’s been no other game that I ever felt so hyped or excited for to make me feel this way except Demon’s Souls andddd MGS2/3. I wasn’t as hyped for MGS4 as I am for MGS5. I still was excited for MGS4, but the amount of promise and the engine, the game mechanics of how it operates was ALL that I wanted.

          I remember a few years ago before the leaked image of the Fox engine and that APC w/ Snake / Ponytail guy. I was given a survey by Kojima Studios which asked me for my input of what I’d like to see in a ‘Hypothetical MGS sequel/MGS5’ and I wrote in it specifically “If you were to make a sequel, I’d want it to build up upon what was done in MGS Peacewalker, because I would be the happiest person in the world if the gameplay/game mechanics of Peacewalker were transferred to next-gen consoles” due to the fact I played PW on PSP and using one analog nub, it was hard, I adapted, but to imagine PW gameplay, crystal-smooth on next-gen consoles? I told them I wanted that kind of MGS game above all else.

          1-2 years later this comes out? It BLATANTLY is EVERYTHING I wanted and asked for. (Not implying I influenced it) but it coincidentally was perfectly everything I wrote on the survey that I wanted in the next MGS game.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I understand that feeling. The only other game to make me feel like that was Skyrim. My favorite game before that was Oblivion so when I saw the first few screens of Skyrim I went nuts. I felt like the time would never come. I’m an adult… and the night before Skyrim came out I had trouble sleeping like it was Christmas eve and I was a kid. -_- How silly does that sound? I can’t even imagine the excitement I’ll be feeling for TPP.

          • Jason Mounce

            I was that way but for Oblivion, was so excited for Oblivion, but my expectations were sorta ‘meh’ after I played Oblivion, I was hooked for a while, but the devs had hyped the game and exaggerated the AI and all the features just as bad as Peter Molyneux, so I had lost respect for Bethesda on that part. Skyrim looked the same but with better visuals and less awkward faces. (Oblivion has NOT aged well xD)

            I’m a huge gusher for Melee-type combat games that have collision and proper clashes/bangs/dents in the combat mechanics. Like Dark Souls or Dying Light, Skyrim is mostly whiff-whiff and the only time it doesn’t is with shield blocks. Until they get animations right and a non-buggy game, or as Skyrim was essentially an unoptimized Console-port – I don’t see myself getting excited over Bethesda games anymore. :C

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, I kind of feel the same way. I wonder if I enjoyed Oblivion because I missed the hype? I completely missed the run up to Oblivion even though I loved Morrowind. Then I really loved it, then got REALLY hyped for Skyrim and was ultimately disappointed. I guess hype can be dangerous.

            I’d love to go back to Oblivion for PC if I could just get the 360 controller working with it. Have you ever used a controller with it or found any way to get it working? I’m in an Oblivion mood now. ๐Ÿ˜› One thing Oblivion had was personality and memorable moments. Sneaking around and watching NPCs because that little elf guy was paranoid about them. Then you’d report back to him each night behind the church. That mission with the chandelier and the other one with the dinner party where you sneak around killing people. It had so many amazing ideas and that’s where Skyrim was a let down. None of the missions stood out and none were very creative. It was just… big.

          • Jason Mounce

            Why use a 360 controller for Oblivion on PC?

    • grapes9h5

      I was, for MGS4, and this actually blows that out of the park. I was also hyped like this for Mass Effect 3, but this is different.

    • I was very hyped for PW because i had a psp and there was not a lot of good games. This time, i am only hyped by the gameplay mechanic and the size of the game because i’m pretty sure i will be disspointed by the story

      • Jak

        I had zero hype for PW even though I had a PSP…and I’ve still never beaten it (having done MGS1 about 6-8 times, 2-4 four times each).

        I dont get the story worries though-this is really going to tie everything together and remind everyone that just because 4 kind of le’s BB off the hook in regards to his relationship to Solid (or at least ends it peacefully), he’s still a pretty terrible, single minded person.

        If you’re super worried about the whole “snake won’t speak much”, don’t be- we already know the game follows the same basic idea as GZ. It just means Snake doesn’t speak out loud to himself, and doesn’t do that silly Japanese theater trick where he keeps repeating what’s said to him.

        • Well, i’m worried about the scenario because i have been dispointed with MGS4 with his crazy fan service and the enormous retcons inside and i was dispointed by peace walker, not by the game himself but by the fact that the story, even if it was well written was totally useless. I mean, BB becoming a warlord and owning his own army was great but seeing the father of otacon and other characters who you knew would be useless (like the blonde french girl) and those crazy techs in the seventies !! at least MGS3 was trying to convey a 60’s feeling. In peace walker (and in GZ) you have the feeling of being in the future of MGS but with cassette tape instead of MP3 on your ipod but it work the exact same way.
          I also remenber that Kojima love to play with us and not giving people too much : i’m sure that everybody believe we will see gray fox or naomi or sniper wolf in TPP. I believe we won’t see them.
          The only thing that i know for certain is that i will love this gameplay and all those possibilities.

    • quintimnia

      Last time i’ve been ridiculously hyped for a metal gear, was snake eater back in 2004. Which means 11 ( eleven ) years ago. Oh my gosh. Eleven fucking years. And now im full hyped for another metal gear game. Even more. we are a big community, i know it. I know there is a lot of people feels the same way i feel.

      Some may ask, “what about mgs4? ” man, i was hyped too, but just because there was a metal gear title. Its nowhere near as mgs2, 3 and 5( and yes there was a big hype for mgs 2 too, but im not going to say how may years have passed, just to not feel old)

      Man…

      • cardboardbox engineer

        same here bro, I was extremely hyped for mgs2, and the game did not disappoint, I loved every bit of it’s weirdness, it is my favorite mgs title, but like you i am not going to even count the years since it’s release ๐Ÿ™‚ we are getting old huh?!!

        • quintimnia

          We are old snakes ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Edward Wokhands

        I don’t know why but I never really got into MGS until a few years ago. Then I played them all in a row over a few weeks and was just stunned at the perfection. So this is the first MGS game I’m hyped for and is actually the most hype I’ve felt for anything ever. It goes:

        1. Losing virginity hype
        2. The Phantom Pain hype

    • korruption

      Same here and I don’t consider myself a gamer anymore cause nothing else seems to interest me.

      • Edward Wokhands

        I’m glad to see someone else saying this. I’ve been losing interest since the end of 2012. The only games I’ve enjoyed since Skyrim are The Last Of Us, GTA5 (sort of but it was a little disappointing, it’s a strange game) and Mario Kart 8. That’s 3 games in 4 years! If I’ve played anything else and enjoyed it, it’s been an old game that I missed or haven’t played for a long time. Gaming has slowly been sinking since it became “trendy” and there are only a few developers trying to keep it afloat. As soon as something becomes more mainstream it seems to instantly lose value. It becomes a race to make as much money in the least time possible which in an artistic industry is terrible. Games should come first, if they’re good they’ll make the creators very rich. 2014 was just a long series of bait and switch, bait and switch, bait and switch. Showing us beautiful, interesting footage and then releasing mediocre, boring games.

        I think we all know that Kojima cares enough to not do that kind of thing. He cares about his art. I also trust Nintendo to try to create a perfect piece of art too. Overall gaming has become so dull and full of self obsessed, controversy seeking, sanctimonious posers. (I hate using the word “poser” but I don’t know what else to call them.) Hopefully Kojima will release a perfect game, sell more than GTA5 and give the rest of the industry a much needed kick up the ass, and show them just how terrible and banal their games are. I’m also looking forward to what Nintendo do with Zelda. Their last few games have been perfect. They’ve always cared about games more than business though which explains some of their silly decisions and risks.

        Games are just terrible now which is why we’re seeing so many HD remakes.

        THE HYPE IS OVER 9000!

    • Edward Wokhands
  • best… game… ever…

    • Cipher

      It’s more than a game

      • Kawaii Monster

        It’s a way of life, love and liberty… (*^u^*)

    • jkffyjjkgft

      You’re goddamn right!!!!

  • Revovler_Lee

    Couldn’t you do that shield thing in PW?

    • Cobra Commander

      In PW the shield still stayed on your arm when not in use, and could only be used with one handed weapons. (My favorite combo was ballistic shield with suppressed Mac 10)
      Maybe this time around the shield will work with two handed weapons also.
      I’m very glad the weapon customization is heavily detailed. I just wish they used real weapons or ones that were close to their real counterparts. Most weapons in the game are rather ugly and poor designs in my opinion.

      • Shalashaska

        Nope. The shield DID go onto snake’s back if you didnt use it.. I used it alot to cover my back when charging into enemies.. it actually helped ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Kol Leqejza

          especially in VS Mode ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Cartmangus

    Good to hear. Specially the attention to detail bit.

  • Nacrois

    With these things I see why Troy Baker said “Skyrim looks like an afternoon playpen next to MGSV” and that MGSV “It’s absolutely massive”. Lets prepare our hands and joysticks to play hundred of hours ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Big_Boss88

      Yea TPP will have more stuff to do than any other game I have ever played :D.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Idk it seems they have been keeping secret side missions,Intel,broadcast stations, military bases,NPC with side missions, races, assassanations, plus many more themes.
      My point is don’t compare emblems as side missions. I want missions and don’t really care about emblems and painting my base.? Seems to be going in a direction that has shit to do with the story. Hopefully they don’t waste a lot time and resources on making MGS a rpg. I can do without that.

      • Jak

        “Hopefully they don’t waste a lot of time and resources on making MGS a(n) RPG”

        You know this is literally closest to Peace Walker, gameplay wise, right?

        If you’re not down for managing teams of researchers, customising your soldiers, sending them on their own missions etc. youll prob be disappointed in this one-I suspect if you just played this while ignoring that depth that it’s going to be a very short experience.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Don’t forget, he also said that Kojima did something “very bold” and he can’t wait to see how fans react to it. I wonder what it is.

  • Cipher

    Is it just me or did he grew hair in his arm ? (third picture)

    • 2 Venomous 4 Kaz

      Hair or …….. Dirt?

      • Yeah, it’s probably dirt.

  • Big_Boss88

    Omfg how much more amazing stuff and details is this game gonna have :O!? I love this so much.

    I am darn hyped for this and if Kojima was blown away, then what will be my reaction ;D haha… Best game of all times! Or is it enough to call this a game, because its more than that.

    These masterpiece news keep coming, Nyx hold on just a min lol so I can go to sleep xD.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Man, this game has everything. Everything. Huge content, amazing story, fun gameplay, amazing story, customisations and the best online. All MGS fans will be beyond satisfied.

    • Big_Boss88

      Kojima-san ends his saga with a big bang, a Nuclear one. Im still gonna play this when I am 100 years old.

      • Mini gear

        hey boss my psn broke a bit, whats youre name on it again so i can add you

        • Big_Boss88

          It is B1g_Boss88 ^_^

      • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

        Kojima isn’t going anywhere. Mgs vi will be the boss. Lol

        • Jak

          At this point any future ones would have to be remakes, that’s a large part of the reason he’s closing the gap-so he really can walk away.

          He’s already said he’ll still be the producer on future ones, but he can’t direct anymore.

          Besides, after this I wouldn’t mind if he rebuilds Silent Hill as a franchise-we haven’t had a good one in so many years that Hills has the chance to reignite interest in it.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, I agree with you. Silent Hill is a franchise that really need reinventing. The first game was amazing so if Kojima can remake the first 4 games with Fox engine I’d be very happy.

    • Raymondius

      Don’t forget amazing story. ‘Cause you know, the story will be REALLY amazing.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I have written exactly that: “amazing story”, but l guess you read that and you are only super excited to repeat it! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Raymondius

          Hahaha, George, read your comment again, please. And YES, I’m super excited for the amazing story, just as your subconscious! ;D

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Holy shit! I’ve written 2 times amazing story! Damn the Patriots! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • You forgot amazing story.

    • korruption

      “This game could mean the end of the world!”

    • Edward Wokhands

      Don’t forget the balloon sheep.

  • Mini gear

    ive been wondering, is there a point too not having a back weopan or sheild?, also can you take it off after?, snake looks cool with just hip and side weopans to me

    • decoyF0XX

      I think this game is made so that everyone can play it their own way. You can probably play the whole game with the Naked Camo if you want.

  • vic boss

    This game has to be the game of the year. I mean it will have massive world, great story, customizations, cutscenes, amazing graphics and on top of that multiplayer. Aside from the plot twists of Lord Kojima. It will be beyond the expectations of every MGS fan.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    These news just make more excited for “V day” (September 1st) ๐Ÿ˜€ !

  • VicBoss

    Thanks for the news !!! I’m glad that they put major efforts in a deep weapon customization system. I’m just curious about weapon’s name (fake or real name names for this ?). I think GZ gave us an answer but I hope we will have some true names, at least for the most important weapons.

  • Hmm, again that fist in front of something in the choper. The photographies zone…

  • Mr.Pony

    There is nothing more we can ask from and for a MGS game.

    The masterpiece that has every little thing we’ve seen in so many games but assembled in one game.

    Thank you Mr.Kojima and team

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    If this is Kojima’s last, I wonder what he’ll make next. I know he’s got Silent Hills lined up, but beyond that, what else? ZOE III? Metal Gear remakes? (which I don’t think he would direct personally) I’d like a new Policenauts or Snatcher if possible. What would you prefer?

    • Maybe something completely new. That would be interesting.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        For sure. You never know, Kojima might have the next big thing stirring in his head.

    • Cobra

      I’m probably one of like, 4 or 5 people who’d actually like another Boktai game. A man can dream!

      • Boktai was great. Too bad the third one never released outside of Japan.

        • Cobra

          It is kinda crappy, I remember being annoyed at the time that I couldn’t get myself a copy. A few guys are in the process of doing a fan translation though, so hopefully that comes out sooner rather than later!

          Commercially, were the Boktai games particularly successful at all or is it safe to say that that franchise is dead and buried?

          • The franchise is probably dead and buried, yes. But who knows.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        I never played Boktai. I forgot that was a Kojima project.

  • kirtanloorii

    I really appreciate the openness with Kojima productions. All of these little bits of information make the wait a little less painful.

  • Golgari

    I don’t understand his comment a bit. What he is trying to say about detailed weapon system?
    Is it going to be detailed for the gameplay or a design purpose?

    • RevolverRoden

      I’m thinking the same thing. Does he mean the design? Shinkawa does the designs, but it sounds like Kojimas talking about gameplay. Hype either way

  • Javier Sosa

    Shinkawa is god and hideo is jesus.

    • Mr.Pony

      Kojima is love, Kojima is life

    • decoyF0XX

      Snake is the spirit.

  • PrinceHeir

    Gonna be godlike!!!!

    Going to play MGSV for YEARS to come!

    • Edward Wokhands

      YES!!!

  • Shalashaska

    to be honest, Im just gonna hope that all that he keeps saying is there on ALL platforms.. recently many devs only talk of stuff in nex gen and when you buy it, you’ll see 3/4 of that stuff is cut out even though it didnt need to be. I Am relying on kojima and this game to amazing. I hope Kojima doesnt disappoint. He has alot of respect from me… I dont want him to prove himself to be like other devs who lie their ass off for their game’s hype. Kojima, if you see this, Please keep that scope in all platforms. Afterall, THAT is what the fox engine does, yes? Please Kojima-san.

    • Yofiel Malachi Yacov

      I can tell you’re a last gen gamer. Lol

      • Shalashaska

        Lol, Ofcourse ๐Ÿ˜› Why else would i be worried about that ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Edward Wokhands

      I honestly think you have no reason to worry. I’d expect a company like Activision or EA or Ubisoft to cut out chunks of their game to force you to buy the next gen or PC version but I can’t see Kojima doing something cheap like that. He sees his games as a piece of art, not some cheap toy to flog or some way to extort extra money from people at the expense of their long term loyalty. I’ll be loyal to Kojima as a game developer forever. Ubisoft, EA and Activision have all lost me as a customer. I hate them as companies, all because they care about short term monetary gain. So anyway, you have no reason to worry in my opinion.

  • No Place For Hayter

    God I hate being in Canada, looks like I’m not getting the collectors edition.

    EB finally put it on sale online…… for $250 Canadian. I don’t think I’m going to break for a retarded price like that even if I have the money.

  • Guest

    I thought the 1st pic was freaking hilarious LOL. And the 2nd pic is nothing more than the truth . Lord Kojima, Yoji shinkawa and the rest of Kojima productions are already living legends.

  • Adamska

    I don’t care anymore about release date. The production of this game can take as long as it takes, I will wait. Every day this game is getting more detailed, more deep.

    The Phantom Pain may lauch September 1st, or October or December, I just don’t care . TPP will deliever perfection in any possible aspect. I can’t wait for this but I will, with sorrow and joy

  • Captain

    If you’ve ever read Shirow Masamune’s works, you’ll know how important it is for any artist to push for high detail on weapons and decals. It makes sense that Yoji Shinkawa is the reason for the level of customization here.

    • Vegas

      I never read it, but why is so important?

  • Vegas

    Its incredible how i love this game just from expectation. We don’t know 10% of it but in our mind its just amazing. How Kojima do it? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • korruption

      Developers without borders. =D

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    As much as I appreciate the custom creation for emblems, I’m just gonna stick with my MSF / Diamond Dogs. If there was an option to upload pics, I probably would find more immersion with it, and use FOXHOUND, but since that won’t be the case, I’ll stick with the lore. =)

    • From The Distant Future

      Perhaps on your second runthrough of the game you’ll loosen up. More than likely, I will be doing the same since I like to keep things lore as well. However, I think I will be tempted to let loose my creativity. Btw, what’s your PSN ID?

      • Edward Wokhands

        I was just going to say the same thing. I usually stick with the story of a game on my first playthrough and then on the second I’ll start activating cheats, I’ll start doing silly things and just go crazy in general.

  • Mini gear

    kojimas great, id feel bad knowing my last MGS is being led out to the world on sep 1. but ill get over it while i start it

  • MrVux007

    how i imagined this article….

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    This game will be the game of games and the metal gear game we’ve been waiting on the whole time.

  • Bramdeman

    Guys, on of our fellow members said that Game UK doesn’t ship internationally. And I paid for it already. Damn.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I also read that they don’t ship the collector’s edition even in the UK because it’s too heavy but that isn’t true. Try sending them an email, they take about 2 days to get back to you.

  • Guest

    !!!

  • Tibor

    I hope that means something like choosing different parts of guns (grips,scopes,etc.). also I’m expecting at least a peek at MB customization (and I’m not talking about changing colours) because from what they said, it’s gonna be BIG

    • Big_Boss88

      Will be interesting to see how much we can do stuff in MB and customizations etc, like R&D. Oh maaan just thinking about all the possibilites makes me so excited XD.

      • solidsnack

        i hope it’s gonna be like the sims and we can place the buildings where we want them.

        • Tibor

          that would be cool. what I think is gonna be there for sure is placing stairs, those big pipes (the ones you can climb) and traps (cameras, sensors, etc.). maybe they wil go as far as drawing lines which guards will follow (like in Prison Architect)

          • Edward Wokhands

            I really hope it’s that in depth but if it isn’t it’ll still be cool.

  • Big_Boss88

    “Sunbathing in my white mother base.”
    Haha :D, with da Chicken Cap….look so relaxing :O.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B_ZjXK5UYAEK7_x.jpg

    Damn I was thinking today that I gotta be extra careful in these 6 months lol. I work in construction yard so I hope nothing happen to me lol ;D, O_O.

    • MGS-Argentina

      :O!

    • solidsnack

      white motherbase looks slick. white with gold accents for the king big boss edition!

      • Big_Boss88

        I agree :), btw is BB wearing a different suit there than before? Look like desert camo but with brighter colors, or maybe we’ve seen it a lot but forgot lol.

        • solidsnack

          yeah i think it might be new, reminds me of the choco chip camo colours!

      • Tibor

        you mean blue with black accents ? ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Mini gear

      It looks like construction then white paint, carefull Boss my greatest fear is not ever playing tpp

      • Big_Boss88

        Heh yeah no problemo ;), survived this far so just little more lol.
        Only thing missing from this image is a pool, few drinks and hot babes. But maybe Kojima don’t want us to see all of what happening there ;D.

        • Mini gear

          He wants us to wait for the good stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I start the game I’m just gonna stare into the day and night cycle for a few hours

          • No Place For Hayter

            I will get stuck at either the title screen or the first moment I get control, lol, I will be lost in the games visuals, one thing is for sure I will be playing the game very slowly.

          • Big_Boss88

            Me too :D, I remember playing GZ first time and just staring Big Boss at the chopper for a while in main menu lol. It look so beautiful <3.

    • Shalashaska Has Landed

      White Motherbase? I see a blue Motherbase.

  • MGS-Argentina

    Iam sad, because i only have a PS2

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Hey Nyx, how about a new poll? Maybe getting people’s thoughts on the new release date. Or which version of the game they’re getting (standard, collectors edition, Japanese import, etc.).

    • Sounds like a good idea. Do these options make sense to you? Keep in mind it’s about the different editions, not so much about the systems.

      Standard version (physical)
      Day One Edition (physical)
      Collector’s Edition
      Special Edition (Japan)
      Premium Package (Japan)
      Digital version

      • Big_Boss88

        It make sense to me and good idea for new poll 3MadFrogs :).

        • ThreeMadFrogs

          Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        Yeah those options sound good.

        • The poll is up. You can select multiple options! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • No Place For Hayter

            Lol, that was what I was thinking the moment I saw the poll, I was like “uh oh what about those who bought more than one?” than I noticed in the poll you say “edition(s)” then I tried to select more than one and I was like “AWESOME, COOL!, now I want to buy more to select more of these, lol”.

          • Big_Boss88

            I forgot to put also a vote on Digital :C…’cause gonna get it on PC too.

          • Mini gear

            one day ill buy every edition again just because metal gear is metal gear

  • They expect me to wait an extra two weeks for PC after i have been waiting for this game for 4 years????? The only way i can play this game is through a PS3 and an Ultra high speed PC. WHAT SHOULD I DO???? I DONT WANT TO WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 15 BUT I ALSO WANT TO PLAY THE GAME IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY!!!!!

    • Big_Boss88

      Not sure, that is a difficult decision I think. But one thing I say is fans who will get it on PC better avoid internet during the 2 extra weeks to avoid massive spoilers.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Can you buy both?

  • Mini gear

    If they finish earlier then expected could this game come out earlier?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Probably not, considering Kojima he would probably want and succeed in finding something to fill the time with when working on the game.

      • Mr.Pony

        Agreed, he will keep polishing it until September or keep working on Silent Hills

  • No Place For Hayter

    Was finally able to pre-order the collectors edition in Canada, Yaaaaaay, now it’s time to wait :)…… ๐Ÿ™

    • Mini gear

      As soon as us is available my worrys will be over and I can wait in peace

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah. I thought for sure the collectors edition would go on sale in both America and Canada at the same time.

        • Mini gear

          My area is terrible with my hype :p

    • Big_Boss88

      Hey gratz sensei :D! I know it feels good to finally pre-order CE or just any version of the game ;D, kinda of being in the safe side and knowing you’ll get to play it soon! I hope others here manage to get it too :).

      Greatness awaits those who wait.

      • solidsnack

        i also pre-ordered my collectors edition today, i wonder if the half size hand will hold a phantom cigar while you play..

        • Edward Wokhands

          :O great idea. I’m going to buy an e-cig especially for it!

    • korruption

      Same here. I thought it’d take another few days to show up. Now the real trial begins….. *twiddles thumbs*

    • Edward Wokhands

      Awesome. It’s so cool when you pre-order a game you’re excited for and you can stop worrying about getting it. As you say you can just sit back and wait.

  • 4energyplaylist .

    Show me.

  • Invader_skoodge

    I think the weapon customization in MGS4 was simple enough and well varied. Specially the M4. I’m looking forward to these weapons since they seem to have made up names I assume Shinkawa-san will take some liberties with designs.

    Oh BY THE WAY. Amazon has the new boxart and date for ps4/xbone and it’s 10 dollars cheaper for ps3/xb360. If anybody is buying it for those consoles. I am getting it for ps3 and PC respectively

    • Edward Wokhands

      The only problem, and I’d love to hear whether other people had the same problem, was that once I customized the M4 the way I wanted it I never used another weapon through the whole game! Well, until I did the non-lethal run of course. The amount of weapons in MGS4 was impressive. I don’t really care about guns but sometimes I’d sit and just look through them all. My favorite was the “anti tank rifle”.

      • Invader_skoodge

        I think it’s the same with all games that feature lots of weapons. You kind of just use the most effective one. In this case the M4. But I like having choices and playing around with different guns and rifles and it changes my play style a bit. Like using guns with no suppressor.

  • Guest

    When playing on ps4 which is better for sound? The tv or headsets?

    • From The Distant Future

      Headsets.

      • Schmojima

        Can you recommend any good headset? Or which one do you use?
        I’d really like to pick one up for TPP hence the sound will be much much better, I guess.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I can’t really recommend any headphones for consoles but what I use (for my PS4/3, and due to it being a sony product and that some features only work with the PS4 I would only use this headset for sony products mainly the PS4/3) is the Sony’s Gold Wireless Stereo Headset, they are nice sleek headphones, and they also have virtual surround sound (7.1) and it supports the headset companion app which some companies actually use to create a specific audio settings for their game through the headset (though you don’t see companies use the app much) it also has a mic which is not the greatest but I’m use to below average mics. The headset is USB so you plug it straight into your console.

          It is not a god pair of headphones but they are nice and they work, they are also as close as I get to surround sound with my PS4 because I don’t have a surround sound setup.

          • Big_Boss88

            I’m planning to buy new headset next week, maybe Sony’s. The one I’m using is pretty old lol so if can find some for decent price it’d be great :). Need to prepare for upcoming games to have best experience.

          • Schmojima

            Thank you very much! Will have a look at those!

    • Big_Boss88

      I play with both often, but I’ve always like headsets more because can hear things more clearly. Especially with horror games, like P.T. That was soooo scary to play with headsets, the feeling was much better.

      So I say headsets :).

    • ObsessedGeorge

      A 5.1 surround sound bro.

      • No Place For Hayter

        No, we’re talking about 22.2 Surround sound plus an 8k display. (lol)

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Maybe VR is what’s best! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • No Place For Hayter

            Maybe, just maybe, no, lets just create the matrix just to play games in.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I can’t go near The Matrix, I can’t stand the low framerate, I’m just THAT sophisticated when it comes to games. Bow down.

  • Mini gear

    When playing on ps4 what’s better for sound? The tv or headphones? I want tpp to be perfect first time

    • No Place For Hayter

      Just check out our conversation about it with Guest, he asked nearly the exact same question.

      • Big_Boss88

        • Mini gear

          “its me dear brother!”

    • Edward Wokhands

      Depends on your TV. Most HDTVs have terrible speakers. In my experience most headphones are better than most TV speakers. Plus you get a better feel for the stereo sound. I was playing GZ with headphones yesterday with guard markers switched off and I could tell EXACTLY where the guard was walking just from the sound of his footsteps in the rain. The sound is astounding in GZ.

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    Does anybody know when or if US gamestops will let us preorder the collectors edition? I’ve called a few different ones and they all pretty much didn’t know anything about it and didn’t know if they will even get any in. They said just call every day.

    • vic boss

      I just keep checking the web page of gamestop every 2 hours to check if it is available.

      • Solid Snakes Revenge

        Not a bad idea thanks. Good luck getting one.

    • No Place For Hayter

      It will show up eventually, Canada’s only showed up today. I just don’t know why America is taking so long, you’d think they would have their crap together, guess not.

    • Big_Boss88

      It will show up there soon enough :).

  • LuxAlike

    I need this inside me.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I hope you have a good internal display.

      • LuxAlike

        Top of the line.

  • solidsnack

    i really want them to release some nice mgsv console themes, with all the hype and effort put into this game i bet we will get some stuff like that.

  • Diego Guedes

    The release date, the chicken hat episode and the quiet protagonist were the only let downs for me towards this game. For me, Snake being a silent character is a dangerous choice especially in the biggest and most important game of the franchise. This game is going to establish Big Boss as a villain for the first time and Kojima goes and turns him into an idiot? Man, I’m pissed off haha. It’s Star Wars Episode 3 all over again.
    But anyway, this is my favorite franchise and I’m extremely hyped for it. I could be more, though. I know it is going to be the best game in the franchise, but I just do not seem to have the same excitement from before regarding new information about the game.

    • Big_Boss88

      We really don’t know how much Big Boss talks, when the game is gonna be huge and long.

      I just think when Kojima say “he won’t speak much at all”, he actually talks about when traveling in the big open world areas with horse etc, so Big Boss don’t talk much then. And imo he don’t need to keep saying stuff like Drake in Uncharted, “ohhh that’s cold water”. Then there’s radio, but we see if he talk much in them unlike in GZ.

      I LOVE cutscenes and sure we get to hear a lot of him in them :). Of course they use the detailed face capture too so words aren’t always needed, even if we love talking Snake. I mean by looking at some cutscene parts like GDC trailer chopper-Big Boss, I know what they were going for with that tech. It looks so beautiful. Anyway I trust Kojima’s vision and super hyped too for this most interesting MGS <3.

      • Mr.Pony

        I find it a little hard to believe that Kojima doesn’t use Kifer’s voice to get the max out of Big Boss character. I’m hoping that what Kojima meant was that since there is not as many cutscenes as in MGS 4 Big Boss will obviously talk less in that sense, and a reduced radio chat, more like listening advice or information instead of the radio conversations like in MGS 3, also the use of motion-capture may reduce some of the dialog that would feel a little off in a real life conversation.

        • Big_Boss88

          Yeah, not as many cutscenes and open world area imo effect the amount of dialogue for him. But in any case, this game will be most mind blowing stuff I ever get my hands on XD.

          Hmm how many days left now >.<…

          • Mr.Pony

            6 months, 4 days, 1 hour and 48 minutes for PC and counting…

        • Edward Wokhands

          I’m looking forward to this so much and I trust Kojima to make a perfect game but if I’m honest I’ll miss codec calls if they aren’t as prominent. They were a massive part of MGS3.

      • Diego Guedes

        If you think about, it has been like this since the beginning. Snake never spoke during gameplay. Only in cutscenes and codec conversations (which I think are awesome for fans).
        I’m saying this because I think Kiefer’s been doing an amazing job so far. I heard the cassette tapes a zillion times in Ground Zeroes.
        But when you think about, during Ground Zeroes itself, he seldom speaks. During the opening, he says, like, 3 ou 4 lines during Kaz’s briefing and 2 or 3 lines during the ending (“dammit we were setup” was my favorite; I thought that was very aggressive). But when he sees the whole base coming down, Kaz seems more affected by it than him (except for his scream before while shooting XOF soldiers). I think the narrative in the game is following a strange direction. It feels a bit uncomfortable for me. I hope I’m wrong. seriously.
        I’m saying this because I love the cutscenes too. It’s one of the best aspects of the game, contrarily to what some journalists say. MGS4 was a work of art.
        What made me more optimistic was Quiet’s cutscene. I thought it was awesome. Boss being all gloomy and talking about eliminating a potential ally was intriguing. But I still think that Kaz is a bit more focused on than the Boss. I guess Ocelot’s going to be the same way. Don’t get me wrong, I think these characters are amazing and I’m looking forward to seeing them (especially because Robin Atkin Downes is badass now; He is one of the best actors out there; Troy Baker goes without saying), but I also want to see more Snake hehe. I want to see Darth Snake falling and doing questionable things! o/
        Thanks for the reply, bro. This forum is awesome (well, the developers are often here getting feedback from fans alright…).
        You an Nyxus are doing a great job as well.

        • Big_Boss88

          Thanks for posting :). It’s nice to discuss these things to see fans opinions and I understand some are worried about certain things of TPP. You’re actually right about the gameplay of previous games ;D lol, but in them it felt like Snake talk more because game was linear and because of that we ran faster into next cutscenes imo. Also there was codec so could chat anytime with the guys.

          Aye I love Robin and he kick ass in Sins trailer with that emotional speech, just wow and Troy is badass too ofc ;). I try not worry too much about how much Kiefer/BB speak before the game arrive. It’s great imo that Kojima tries different things with each of his MGS and lets hope this new direction for TPP works amazingly. I’m very hopeful it does because been hyping for it so long lol XD.

          I love this community too <(^O^<), MGI is like a sanctuary for our Diamond Dogs soldiers. A world where us Diamond Doggies can live freely in peace for themselves without taking any crap from government. MGI is our Heaven and our Hell. This is Outer Heaven!

            Forum? o_o

        • MichaelPayneV

          I think what he means Hideo by “the other characters will define Snake” is that we will see these Character will say and do certain things to which Snake will have a specific reaction which is that defines him, his reaction to their words.

        • Edward Wokhands

          I think that you don’t need to worry. The face capture must be for something. Plus people change, if Boss is becoming obsessed with revenge then he’s bound to become a lot more introverted and maybe even depressed. I think it will fit with the story and hopefully Kojima has put a lot of thought into it. If it turned out to be bad I’d be very surprised. I do understand your concern though.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I think he actually means what he said, that Snake won’t randomly flirt with womans (womans like Quiet) and that we won’t make the “Jokes” ala say random things just for the sake of entertainment, but be silent and confuse all the time, trying to remember who he really is, so Snake Performance will hopefully be an Oscar Wordy intense Facial Performance to back up for the lack of words spoken by Snake, kinda like Link in Zelda Games, but at a whole new “Hollywood” Level, like Hideo said, like Mad Max.

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm yeah it could be just like that :), we’ll see. There will be lot of cutscenes in the story for sure so interesting to find out how much he hear him. He’ll talk when necessary, like Mad Max in 2nd movie :D. But the facial capture is incredible so I’m all good either way, silent or not ^_^.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I think it would be strange if he woke up from a coma and had the same personality he had in 3. If I was obsessed with revenge there’s no way I’d start flirting with women and joking. I’m still expecting humor, just all in a different context. I don’t know if you’ve ever been angry or obsessed with something but when you are, the world around you is a lot more interesting and varied than you. You’re single minded and extreme while everyone else is reacting to you and being affected by you. So I guess it makes sense to kind of focus more on everyone around Big Boss. I honestly don’t think it will affect anything really. Think about MGS3, how much did Big Boss talk compared to Paramedic for instance? He was just reacting to her amazing speeches and info. GZ didn’t feel drastically different and I didn’t really notice that he talked less.

          • Yeah, and remember the entire ending scene from MGS3: Big Boss doesn’t speak a word and it’s one of the most powerful scenes in the series. You can really see how much it affected him, even if he doesn’t say it. It’s someone else, EVA, who does the talking while Big Boss is silent.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Good point. Snake and Big Boss have never been “talky” anyway and as you point out when he’s upset and betrayed he goes into himself, he stops talking so him not talking during TPP makes complete sense canon wise. I’ve seen more than one person describe David Hayter’s performances as “the occasional grunt” so what sense does it make to suddenly act like he was a talk show host whose vocal chords have been removed?

            I may be mistaken but the most I remember Snake talking and being the most talkative is in MGS2 when he’s Pliskin, when he’s talking TO the player. MGS has always been very much about the people around Snake and Big Boss. I used the codec at every opportunity in MGS3 and was astonished at how much voice acting there was.

          • Yeah, and we know Ocelot and Kaz will have a lot of lines, many of them probably via CODEC: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=17542

          • Edward Wokhands

            :O thanks for that link! How the hell did I miss that story? Ocelot has always been one of my (and everyone elses) favorite characters since 3. He’s as interesting, deep and complex as a good movie or novel character so I’m really happy to hear that.

            I can’t wait to see how many Ocelot clones there are running around MGO.

          • Yes, one of the best characters in the series for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Big_Boss88

            Good point and I agree with all you said :). Also yeah a 9 year coma, hunted down when wake and losing people close can change a person, not to forget having a horn stuck in your head and 1 arm less. So Big Boss is not in happy mood :). I didn’t feel GZ being that different either. Kojima and folks know what they doing.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah it felt like an evolution. I can still go back to MGS2, 3 and 4 and they don’t feel too different. That’s how artists should work, listen to every classic band, each album will have differences, some major some minor (pun not intended -_-) but you can still tell they’re the same band from the feel. Kojima’s games are genuine works of art and it’s awesome that he realized that Boss wouldn’t talk much after so much trauma.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I won’t be surprised if Kiefer will win tons of Awards Next year for his work in TPP, stealing Awards from Troy Baker and Nolan North.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed, there are a few points that tick me off to, one of which is silent Snake, but like you said still looking forward to it and it will still be mind blowing amazing.

      I completely understand what you mean by being less exited by receiving bad news, myself personally lost most of my hype when I learned Hayter wasn’t voicing Snake anymore, before that news I was literally ready to explode with hype and excitement, and I was re-watching the trailers on a daily basis, and then bad news hits that you’d never even see coming and you lose excitement for it which just doesn’t come back.

      • Diego Guedes

        I thought I was the only one haha. You remind me of when I bought the PS2 and then the PS3 because of this franchise. The hype made me anxious to the point of nauseating me auehuah.
        But with this game is different. This is the first I perceive new information as “bad news”, like you mentioned.
        I don’t know. Maybe I should drink more…

    • decoyF0XX

      How are you guys still disappointed after hearing Snake in the Quiet But Not Silent trailer??

      • Big_Boss88

        Gosh I love this trailer so much. Big Boss is so badass in it ;D.
        Seriously can’t wait to see every cool cutscene of TPP <3.

      • Diego Guedes

        I don’t know, man. Maybe after seeing the Afghanistan intro cutscene. Big Boss does not say a single word while Ocelot goes on and on.

  • Icycool

    just seems as if Kojima is going to make up for the $30 or more depending which console you bought for demo GZ with this game.

  • MAG V Supreme

    Understand one thing guys. Kojima is a man of quality ovee quantity. Yes a mission can last hours but thats for people who know how to enjoy it. Those speed run people do are great after you played through mission a few times and tried everything. Mgsv TPP has endless amounts of playthrough value. Play solo/stealth/ guns blazing / using certain items only or weapons get creative. Than do the Same with all your buddies. That alone can add up to hundreds of playing hours. While mgsv gz was limited as far as missions and weapons and items. You can log in over 100 hours doing all trailers and creative ways to play. Learn to see the value in life, not the prices is my message.

    • Big_Boss88

      Gonna play this soooo many hours on first playthrough. Thinking of all the different ways of playing is so cool. I think I will first play with my buddies and can’t wait to get them ;), although I usually prefer playing stealthy and solo. But they are just so awesome so want them asap.

    • turkishgamer35

      agreed TPP gonna be huge and we all gonna spend so many hours in that game but not only TPP imo every mgs game have amounts of replay value i have mgs collection and still playing mgs 2 and mgs3

    • Amrit

      Superb response, totally agreed.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I agree. I got SOOOO much time out of GZ. I can’t believe when people call it a demo. Just in the first week I got like 16 hours out of it. Plus on that Intel Acquisition mission, when I saw the multiple ways to complete it I went {:O because it means that there will probably be TPP missions that have multiple endings that affect the rest of the game and I bet some of them will be secret. All the side missions in GZ were really great and getting S Rank and all the achievements didn’t feel like a chore and didn’t feel tacked on. It really was worth the money. Look at the size of the base and then look at the size of Phantom Pain. It’s going to be IMMENSE.

    • Mr.Pony

      Why are we still here…just to wait?

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Man, that’s exactly what l wanted to ask Nyxus to do. If it’s possible to have a release date coundown on the front page of the site! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah it’d be cool :D, I got the same idea too from Mini Gear in the other article. Nyxus said not sure by what timezone should put it as if we will, but this is +2 zone :).

        • There is one now, in the sidebar. Not sure what timezone it uses, but it’s set to count down to September 1st, 00:00.

          • Big_Boss88

            AWESOME <(^O^<) (>^O^)>, thanks Nyxus :D!

          • No problem. Also, it looks at the time zone of the site, which is GMT+1.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Every time I see a timer for this game a small part of me wants to challenge myself to sit and watch it until release for some reason. -_______-

          • Big_Boss88

            Sounds good to me :).

          • Invader_skoodge

            Might be Central European Time. It’s 7 hours ahead of my timer.

          • Correct. It’s GMT+1, which is the same as CET.

    • Invader_skoodge

      It’s not too bad if you look at it this way.

    • Invader_skoodge

      Kaz had to do something in those 9 years between GZ and TPP. LOL

      • Big_Boss88

        Indeed, he started training some fiddling spells XD.

        • Invader_skoodge

          Now make a Big Boss character and “Let the Bromance Come Back to Life!”

          • Big_Boss88

            I would but can’t put eyepatch ;( and for some reason no scars either on my PC version. It’s bugged somehow so they don’t show lol.

          • Invader_skoodge

            Have you tried the Nexus? I thought I saw a custom scar mod a while ago.

          • Big_Boss88

            Hmmm no actually I haven’t checked that for DAI ;D, thx I will later. But I think I play with my Kaz first and see how I like mage class. Wanna get some cool spells ^^.

    • Mr.Pony

      Kaz the Bard playing the fiddle xD

  • Edward Wokhands

    The shield on his back still deflecting bullets is so cool and is a detail most other games would overlook. It’ll come in handy online too. I think we should all acknowledge the other people who help Kojima put his visions together like Shinkawa. I know it’s Kojima’s idea and vision but there are so many other people who help yet Kojima gets credit for all of it. That must be annoying for members of the team.

    I can’t explain my excitement for this game. It’s starting to get a little silly how intense it is. Still, I keep trying to forget it until September but then 10 minutes later MetalGearInformer is loading in my browser. -_- The only thing that will distract me is the Mario Kart 8 DLC. That’s addictive enough to make me look away for a few seconds. Maybe The Witcher 3 too.

  • Matrixcity

    Nice countdown!

    • Big_Boss88

      Indeed :D.

      • korruption

        Nice and yet… so… evil. =(

  • kirtanloorii

    I’m going to spend the next six months thinking of the perfect design.

  • glitchbomb

    I scored the Ps3 Japanese SE for the Ps3 because it is all they had left when I checked eBay. Now I see PS4 versions up for the same price. I don’t even own a Ps3 anymore. -.-
