Troy Baker: Every character in TPP has some shade of controversy

In an interview conducted by FraggedNation and co-hosted by Korrupt Ronin and YongYea, Troy Baker answered some questions about his role as Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Of course, Troy couldn’t reveal too much since it would spoil the game. He said the relationship between Big Boss and Ocelot will become clear as you play through the game. “I definitely think you’re going to see a different side of Ocelot than you’ve seen before.”

Speaking of this, Troy wanted to say something to the Hayter fans specifically: “I love David Hayter, [he’s been in the] franchise since the very beginning, David is amazing, he loves the character… Kiefer Sutherland came in and knocked it out of the park. He did a great job. He was honoring the character David Hayter helped create. He’s doing something different, it’s going to make sense. Stick with it.” He also implored gamers once again to reserve their judgment for when they have played the game, as he did before in a different interview.

Answering a question on how creative he could be with Ocelot, Troy said: “Ocelot is kind of like the Cid in Final Fantasy.” For those who don’t know, Cid is a character that returns in every Final Fantasy game, but every time in a different form and with a different role. Troy added that the difference is of course that the several ‘Ocelots’ in the various games are in fact one and the same person, but he still feels the situation is comparable. “I’ve got so many resource material to pull from to make it feel like the same character, just intrinsically it’s going to change when it’s a different actor, so I love what Patric Zimmerman did and also what Josh Keaton did.” So while he has a lot of past, Troy hopes he can do something with the character that keeps him fresh and different.

Given the fact that Kojima said The Phantom Pain will have a lot of controversial elements, Yong wondered if Ocelot’s sadistic side will play into this. Troy answered: “I would say this: I think that every character in this [The Phantom Pain] has some shade of the controversy that they will contribute to. But you’re going to be surprised to know that it doesn’t just come from Ocelot.”

    Troy is great

    Hey, Nyxus. I’m sorry I’m double posting this, but Kojima’s name has been pulled from the Silent Hills/P.T website as well

    GRAY FOX!!! ヽ(`Д´)ノ

    • NakedSnake85

      i know i know this makes no sense but gray fox is a badass!

  • PrinceHeir

    I just read the Gameinformer April 2015 issue.

    And there’s a snippet on page 56 about Troy Baker’s thought on his past career and mentioned about Nolan North and him and how he’s kinda taking over him(in terms of appearance and popularity which is true).

    Unfortunately he mentions where Nolan North was everywhere while him still doing “slumming it with lame Anime work”.

    No offense Troy, but you weren’t really special in those dubs. Other than The Last of US and the current Joker, i’m not really impress with his work. He’s becoming more like the default voice of pretty much everything(this also happened to Nolan North which he slowed down a bit)

    Maybe this is why he stop doing Anime dubs, because he probably thinks he’s better than this. I also heard he’s kinda arrogant and how he acts in conventions(not gonna confirm it until its true)

    One thing for sure, he’s fame is getting to him. If some of it is true and he wants to acts like this, he’s free to do so. But it is a shame if this is true.

    Though I’m sure he’ll do fine as Ocelot in MGSV.

    • Braden Gunn

      He’s certainly not arrogant, I watch a lot of his panels and public appearances on YouTube, and he just seems honest and charismatic to me, he definitely cares about his fanbase, and has a clear passion for both acting and gaming which in my opinion makes him refreshing to listen to, but each to their own opinion.

    • #AHIDEOKOJIMAGAME

      Wow. Did he really say “lame Anime work”? That sucks if he did because I think the best performance he’s done so far is in Shin Chan as Action Bastard.

      • PrinceHeir

        I don’t know how serious this or just a joke.

        Still if you are being hired by a lot of Triple A companies, i could see why he might act like he’s best in the business.

        He does great work, but i’m just not a fan of his style(some characters sounds the exact same person like Vincent(Catherine) to Snow(Final Fantasy XIII) etc.

        Though he really shines on non-Anime works. So i guess in way that’s where his strengths are.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I disagree, for me his Best Performance was The Joker in Assault on Arkham.

      • I had no idea he was Action Bastard thats awesome! ACTION BASTARD HOOOOO

  • Sn4ke_911

    KOJIMA IS BACK ON TWITTER!!!

    He just retweeted something!

    http://abload.de/img/2015-04-0101_53_11-kokjupk.png

    • Batzi

      Good catch. Let’s hope he tweets a chopper picture soon. Who would’ve thought that it would come to this?

      • Sn4ke_911

        Please let it all just be a ruse.

        Why would this damn troll retweet something on april 1st.

        KOJIMAAAAAAAA

        • Batzi

          The fact he came to on April 1st (JP time) makes it more likely for it being a ruse and if it’s another coincidence then fuck me!

    • #AHIDEOKOJIMAGAME
    • Silverius

      “K Has come to.”

    • Isn’t that Mad Max film?

      • Shalashaska

        YUP. it is. If im not wrong Mad Max is one kojima’s favs

        • Gatsu

          Mine too :), and this is also being directed by George Miller, who directed the earlier 3 MM movies which is great!

          • Shalashaska

            YUP! ITS GONNA BE AWESOME! It sorta reminds me of Borderlands, tbh

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I wonder if that’s a visual metaphor for what konami is doing to him and Kojima Productions.

  • Golgari
  • Braden Gunn

    Everytime I watch/listen to a podcast/interview/ or panel with Troy Baker, he seems like the kind of guy I’d love to go for a drink with.

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    I have so much time for Troy Baker. The guy is a real class act. He’s a phenomenal actor and seems like such a nice and humble dude. The kind of guy of you could enjoy a beer with.
    Can’t wait to see his full performance as Ocelot.

  • Vegas

    For some reason, i think we will see Huey in a dark side too. His ambitions may grow inside him to the point that he will do anything, even going against BB, to proceed with his creations. I dunno, maybe “A Scientist that Stands his Ground” is talking about Huey going against the bad decisions of BB and Miller, thats why he was punished. Could be that too.
    Anyway, Troy gave us something that Konami took from us: hope and hype.
    I am once again counting the days for TPP 😀

    • Gatsu

      Yeah we might see him in the dark.

      Oh maaan it will be incredible to see what happens to all the characters…and who we see during TPP. I just can’t wait to experience this game <3 !

  • John Guerra

    Hey,Kojima retweeted something finally!

    https://twitter.com/Kojima_Hideo

    • invader_skoodge

      I guess since It’s April first all the “restructuring” is getting done so media blackout might have been limitedly lifted for Kojima

      • John Guerra

        Best profile name and pic ever! XD

  • Shalashaska

    THIS GUY IS A BRILLIANT VOICE ACTOR.
    Not only that, but If i was a woman or a gay guy, my world would drop every time i see this guy. This guy is amazing *fangirl jumping in the air*

    Just realized that at 5:58.. there’s a guy in the game Binary Domain that looks SO SIMILAR to that main guy in MG Rising.. the samurai. Forgot his name.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      I freaked out when l played Diablo 3 for the first time because l actually recognised him as the scoundrel.

      • Shalashaska

        The guy is brilliant. I mean just look at the Roster of Voice.. he is so diverse.

  • God damn Yong for asking Troy to explain who he is in the most long winded way possible. Honestly if anyone is watching the interview they know who Baker is already… good job Yong!

  • Shalashaska

    WOAH WOAAHAHHHHHHHH NO NO I DID NOT JUST HEAR HIM SAY THERE IS A REASON KIEFER IS VOICING BBOSS! KOJIMA!!!! DONT PLEASE , DONT DONT PLEASE DONT pull a RAIDEN ON US, PLEASE, kojima, NO ! PLEASE, NO!

    http://stream1.gifsoup.com/view1/3909280/angry-joe-no-o.gif

    P.s -on a CALMER note… Kojima’s contract wasn’t renewed.. therefore he isn’t their direct employee .. wouldn’t that mean he can post whatever he wanted on twitter that isn’t about Konami’s dear MGS? I mean.. the lock down was/is for MGS… Not his soul ..perhaps that’s why a tweet on april 1st 🙂

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Raiden? Oh no no no, he wouldn´t do that twice…. i guess ^^

    • Schmojima

      Btw., isn’t kojima even vicepresident of konami?! So, i don’t get it…the man is the second highest guy in all of konami and above roughly 5,000 employees and is now working on a contractual base? Is that even possible?!

      • Mr.Pony

        Even if he is vice-president, I’m guessing that the whole board administration voted against him in regards of MGS series ending in MGSV therefore him leaving despite the position he has. As for the contractual thing, they can actually do that, it’s a business model, (a shitty one for gaming industry) that they can adopt, it’s like Hollywood working on a movie franchise, take Spiderman for example, they had different directors for each movie because they work on a contractual base, and if for some reason they don’t like they just don’t renew the contract, no strings attach, completely legal.

      • Alex

        The main head President of Konami suddenly changed, is now some guy who did the same to Sanyo as he’s doing to Konami, totally changing the architecture. I imagine Kojima had a good relationship with the prior head, who is probably apologizing to Kojima for all these things.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Maybe he is not in a Proper emotional state right now to stay on twitter all day like he used to.

      • Shalashaska

        Possibly too. Very possible. The making must have him exhausted.

    • Old Liquid

      Dude, Kojima literally, flat-out said Snake is the only playable character in MGSV, like.. 2 years ago back in GDC 2013… blatantly… to our faces lol.

      Kiefer is Big Boss in MGSV. There’s no trick or deception to that. That is all.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I certainly don’t believe PythonSnake, but all Hideo said is that is Snake, which is a Code Name that was used at some point by guess who…Raiden.

        • Old Liquid

          Logic, man. He doesn’t need to elaborate. Kojima (and reality itself) easily depicted him as the same “Snake” from MGS3, and Peace Walker. Common sense tells us this is another one of Snake’s adventure, as how Kojima flat out said in another Q/A interview with Yoji and Stephanie.

          But if logic isn’t good enough: Sean Eyestone called him “Big Boss” at E3’s presentation.

          • MichaelPayneV

            That my friend changes everything.

      • Shalashaska

        I have a case of disbelief at kojima’s words :-/

    • Nah, he probably just means that his voice work together with the facial capture works very well.

      • Shalashaska

        Lets hope youre correct, Nyx, Im hoping kojima’s been telling the truth to us about all of this

  • WrongDirectionZ

    I´ll be so happy when i finaly get my hands on TPP and iám so glad that Troy didn´t spoil anything. I just can´t wait…..

    • Gatsu

      I know how you feel ;D …

  • THE FUTURE OF THE METAL GEAR SAGA IS BEAUTIFUL

    • The Konami Logo at the beginning, the Music, the “GIve it back” and the outro music had me laugh haha

    • “Give it Back..start talking bitch” haha, good stuff.

    • decoyF0XX

      Hahahahh what is this!!??

    • Gatsu

      Haha amazing XD !

    • Diego Guedes

      Dude, that’s genius uaheuhaeuhaeheauhauh!!!LOL

  • Shalashaska

    This… Kojima becoming a REVIEWER ? MOST probably a April 1st joke , no ? Dont know but I wouldnt mind him being one 😀 i would like it 😀

    • Gatsu

      O_O… almost believed it!

  • Will Hough

    This was another great interview! I’d love to see more of these with other VOs from the series. Maybe even characters not in TPP so we can get their reaction after release.

  • Cipher

    Why is it no one talks about Zero ?
    he’s supposed to be the most influential character in the series

    I hope we see a lot from him
    and hear his version of his war against Big Boss

    • MichaelPayneV

      Yeah, wondering who is going to play him.

      I’m thinking Andy Serkis, he is already a Mo-Cap Expert and a Voice Actor, he has been part of recent Video Games like 2010 “Enslaved: Odyssey to The West” in which he is the Main Playable Character, so it wouldn’t be hard for him to do Zero’s signature English Accent…and he also has an awesome voice.
      http://images.fandango.com/images/fandangoblog/snippet_DawnofthePlanetoftheApes_AndySerkisMotionCapture_Article.jpg

    • Old Liquid

      Because people care either too little, or don’t give a damn entirely to discuss or hypothesize MGSV’s characters IE: Zero, Skull Face, “Those who don’t exist”, Code Talker. Eli who is blatantly Liquid, etc. The only thing most people care to discuss are voice actors. Most notably Sutherland vs. Hayter, and how Big Boss = Gray Fox, so that if it isn’t Hayter, then it’s not genuine.

      • Cipher

        I agree , people in this board rarely discus the thing that matter (the story)
        without it the game is just another COD

        “the ignorant Big boss = Grey Fox ”
        I don’t know how people could actually think this theory is true 🙂

        • That’s more the MGS community in general than this site. And here are some thoughts on Zero’s possible role in MGSV: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=16613

        • kirtanloorii

          The problem with COD is that the gameplay is just “Go! Go! Go!” and then you die. Stealth has a way of slowing things down and making you pay attention to the environment. Very few games do that.

      • kirtanloorii

        I notice that people tend to talk about whatever topic the above article is about. There has been tons of news about the actors and Konami. Meanwhile, there has been almost no news about the story. At least not since the Tokyo Game Show. I’m pretty sure that when the game is released, all news will be about the story.

        • Old Liquid

          You’re right. This site is very good with that. My comment was mostly directed at other MGS communities, like message forum boards and other social media outlets. IE: Konami’s MGS FB page. I should have elaborated with that in the OP. Whenever News Updates surfaces in those outlets, they are usually hijacked by the louder fans (which has been a lot in MGSV’s hype) with demands that almost always involve Hayter/Sutherland, and the topic turns into just that.

          Troy Baker is clearly aware of this too. This is literally the second time with 2 different interviews that he’s personally brought up & defended Kiefer out of nowhere, without ever being asked from the hosts about anything regarding Big Boss in MGSV.

    • Gatsu

      I too hope we get to see him in the game and hear much of him :). But I’m kinda glad he’s being kept in the dark, so all of it reveal to use when we play it.

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    One of the many reasons why MGS is my favourite saga is that no character is ever 100% good or evil.

    I love all those layers of wannabe hero and twisted bastard they all seem to have.

    • Pillbugable .

      Yeah, especially Volgin. He did nothing wrong.

  • Chico Ribeiro

    Now THAT is a great MGS news! http://alturl.com/p749b

    • RJRO

      Finally some good news.

  • kirtanloorii

    “He’s doing something different, it’s going to make sense. Stick with it.” I like the sound of this. And I think PythonSelkan will too.

    • Yeah, people will probably read too much into this. It sounds like he just means that the end result will speak for itself.

      • Alex

        Already in GZ, we got something a little different Hayter could never do, and that’s more of a fatherly vibe out of the character. The only time we’ve gotten that vibe out of Big Boss is in GZ and the MGS4 Epilogue.

  • Old Liquid

    So I guess they decided to abandon Metal Gear Informer entirely now, since we only got 2 out of +50 questions in the last interview with Hayter.

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    5 months until release!

    • MichaelPayneV

      And 5 Platforms to be released on.

      • Gatsu

        When do you think they’ll announce TPP for PC as physical, before Steam release or after? Well I hope it happens because it was done to GZ, after digital release I think.

        • MichaelPayneV

          They better do it soon, before the Summer Starts so that we can get the CE as well.

          Hold on, if “A Hideo Kojima Game” isn’t on the Cover, therefore Hideo doesn’t get a $ from TPP Sales, why should i give Konami money for Hideo’s work?

          I’ll buy it, but if it was possible i would chose to give Hideo Personally 60$, and pirate TPP just to send a “Fukk you” to Konami, but i will buy it, because i want that Arm.

          • kirtanloorii

            But then Kojima Productions staff get nothing.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hideo could share the 60$ to his Team, right, right?!

            Just kidding, of course i will buy TPP no matter what, but those are the Last Money i ever give to Konami,

    • Gatsu

      It’s so close !

  • Gatsu

    Gosh I’m so ultra excited for TPP and I always get even more excited after hearing Troy say stuff about it ;D.
    Can’t wait to see how all the characters change through the painful story and everyone’s voice acting =).

    Also nice to see that Kojima-san is back in twitter!

    • Mini gear

      I’m getting really excited for tpp too ^_^ I like to imagine it’s four less weeks because the last 6 weeks will fly by, especially when Summer gets here

      • Gatsu

        Yeah :D, Summer will go fast. I start my vacation at the end of August so can prepare for TPP >:D.

        • Mini gear

          The amount of feelings ill have on the main menu of the game will break me with joy 🙂 Defiantly taking the release day off no matter what

          • Gatsu

            Same here <3. Btw Mini, something I've been wondering is that how TPP main menu looks like :P. Will it be like GZ with Big Boss being in a bloody Chopper? I'm not sure because of the way GZ ended.

            Anyway, the main menu will be epic!!! XD

          • kirtanloorii

            I’m actually quite curious about that as well.

          • Mini gear

            I was thinking that too, maybe it’s a black screen with the logo and when we press start it fades away and a few seconds later it turns out to be bb blinking as he wakes up In FP 🙂 after the first time it’s chopper mode again 😀 even a blank screen would drive me crazy with hype

          • kirtanloorii

            If I know Kojima, it’s a close up shot of Quiet’s chest… Just sayin’.

          • Gatsu

            LOL or that XD.

          • kirtanloorii

            WITH physics enabled…

          • Mini gear

            Best intro ever 10/10 all game reviews

          • Mini gear

            Just as good lol

          • Gatsu

            And then game begins, Sins of the Father theme starts playing, similar to Snake Eater after completing Virtuous Mission. Afterwards, BB get flashback to helicopter part and we see what happen.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I think there’s a LOT we don’t know about. We’ll probably be surprised by the title screen. I can’t wait to see what’s being kept secret. We’ve heard absolutely nothing about Psycho Mantis and all the other characters. Plus the Volgin ghost, the whale, the hallucinations etc. Big Boss on the motorbike!

            Actually, you might be right then, maybe it’ll start out as a black screen and then change the further we get into the game. It’ll be something cool.

          • Mini gear

            Yeah, I also am hoping we can drive the motorcycle later

  • Gatsu

    A bit off-topic, but this was pretty funny lol :D. I wanna see it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLazRt8s8Wc

    • kirtanloorii

      Oh look, it’s my dream car.

      • Gatsu

        Mine too ;), but I think it would be nice to see a new BTTF movie. Although, it would not be the same without Michael J. Fox ;C .

  • MichaelPayneV

    Has anyone seen @Big_Boss_88?

    • Gatsu

      It’s me ;D…or was me lol, sry if I didn’t tell you earlier XD. I thought of changing my name little while ago because so many Big Bosses around. Not that it’s a bad thing at all but still thought of doing it. I could change it back if you want to Michael, although I switched it in N4G too :3.

      Felt weird at first, but gotten used to this one now I think :P.

  • Venom_Sina

    Happy “Kojima Productions” 10th year anniversary.This video is made by “PythonSelkan”:

    • Gatsu

      That was actually really good imo :D. I didn’t know Python do other videos besides TPP theory-videos.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,they do other things,too.You should see their Youtube page.It’s full of surprises!!!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Since when Castelvania is Kojima Productions, or is that the April Fools part of the Video?

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah.It’s not a KojiPro game,but they helped MercurySteam to make it happen.They gave some advice to the team.Even Hideo Kojima himself did a voice acting role in the Japanese version!!!

        • There were also some MGS easter eggs (the Solid Eye, for example).

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,I forgot that.Also,Snake’s Bandana is a hidden item in the game.Thanks for the reminder.

          • Alex

            I read that Kojima was just there for a day, but his input was so valuable that it ended up drastically changing the entire appearance of the main character as well as his personality. As well as a bunch of little things like how to do realistic teeth and such. Its one of those games that shows anything Kojima touches, turns to gold. All it takes is a touch.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,his influence can turn every game into a memorable one.

          • MichaelPayneV

            In that cas ei think is safe to assume that Silent Hills will be Hideo.

          • Alex

            Silent Hills is done, not even a thing anymore

          • MichaelPayneV

            No what i mean is that Hideo just Touched Silent Hill trough P.T. and that Silent Hill even if finished by someone else it will still feel as “A Hideo Kojima Game”

          • Alex

            No no no, even though anything he touches turns into a great game, there is still a very distinct difference between those and “A Hideo Kojima” games, the ones completely dictated by him throughout all of production. Games he produced and/or helped out turn out to be great, but HIS games are the stuff of LEGEND, the cream of the crop, the absolute best not just in gaming, but all of Entertainment IMO.

            Regarding Silent Hills, it WAS going to be a Kojima game with a lot of influence/collaboration with Del Toro, which is what PT was, but is now nothing but a distant dream. If Silent Hills does come, which could just as easily be cancelled altogether or handled by a different studio, regardless it will be a completely different kind of game with no relation to PT or what Kojima had in mind and what was cooking up. So no, Silent Hills is not guaranteed at all to be Gold. It can be great, technically, but all faith is pretty much lost.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, but my point is that The Game will be better now compared to Silent Hill not being even touched by Hideo.

          • Alex

            I don’t know about that, he touched PT, not Silent Hills. He wont be touching that game and it may not even be made anyway.

          • Alex

            Remember, PT was more of an experimental pitch than a real demo for SH. It was not going to be a part of SH. I doubt any real production got underway for SH until after they’d finish MGSV. PT was just a small side thing Kojima and a few of the devs did.

        • PrinceHeir

          Don’t forget the JPN MGS VA were pretty much the cast of Lords of Shadows JPN XD

          And Kojima was also the reason why the game has gotten the Castlevania moniker(even though i believe it doesn’t deserve it) since the game was developed as just Lords of Shadows in the first place.

          He also change the character Gabriel to be less barbaric(i remember he was supposed to have a more barbarian style and all)

      At the end there, he forgot to put PT in between GZ and TPP, and should’ve left Silent Hills out of it since its likely not happening and surely not in 2015 or from Kojima Productions.

  • John Guerra

    Just a quick questions for my fellow MGS fans,I want to know what you guys think:
    Do you think that we will see MGSV at E3 this year with all this fallout coming from KONAMI and Kojima,I was really looking forward for a new trailer this year from Kojima,but with all the limitations KONAMI has put on him,I don’t know what to expect anymore.

    Again just a quick burning question 😀

    • Gatsu

      Yes we will, and Kojima-san will be there! How do I know this?

      Well, I just do ;D ! E3 last uber epic trailer of TPP, it will blow our minds for the last remaining weeks :).

    • MichaelPayneV

      That’s a Damn Great Question.

      1 thing for sure, Hideo won’t be at E3 to support MGSV and SH.

    • Venom_Sina

      Definitely.It’s a major gaming event.They have to do it,at least for the commercial aspects.

      • Yeah, it would be crazy if they are completely absent. Also, they said Kojima’s media appearances will be limited, so there should still be some.

    • kirtanloorii

      I believe we will see it. They will probably unveil some new details about the game. There will probably be a pre-recorded (scripted) video from Kojima urging people to buy the game.

  • Fredy Carius

    HIDEO IS ALIVE, he retweeted something about the new Mad Max trailer

    • Fredy Carius

      sry for being like 18 hours late (and probably the 10th person to post that =/ )

      • Always welcome. 😉

      • Gatsu

        Lol np :), Mad Max always reminds me of Fist of the North Star or Borderlands ;D, well they both were influenced by MM I think.

        Here is the 1986 full movie if haven’t seen, it’s awesome ;D. Kenshiro ftw.

        • Fredy Carius

          Cool, I’ll watch it by the weekend.

          But yesterday i watched the new Mad Max trailer all day and today i thought: ‘Man, Kojima loves these movies so much i think he could break his silence in excitement because of this trailer’ and when i went to check he did exactly that! So awesome!

        • PrinceHeir

          Jesus Kenshiro!

          You Wa Shock!

    • FOX

      did anybody translate what he said?

  • kirtanloorii

    The MGS community: Celebrating one whole month without having to worry about a release date. Cheers!

    • Mini gear

      I like knowing we just need to repeat this amount of time five more times

      • kirtanloorii

        Yeah. Whenever I feel like it is too far away, I just ask myself “What was I doing five months ago?” It makes time move a little faster.

        • Mini gear

          I’m gonna be a hiking man for summer to avoid time until August is almost over to pass the time fast

          • kirtanloorii

            I have to carefully space my games to avoid having too much time without a game to play. When I get TPP, I can easily see myself putting over 200 hours into it.

          • Mini gear

            Same here, right now I’m playing blood borne. And replaying fire emblem a fourth time

          • Gatsu

            That reminds me, I need to continue my deadly BB adventure :).

          • Mini gear

            Yeah, I learned for bosses to stay dead close and perfect dodgeing, though anything bigger then me intimidated me :p

          • Gatsu

            Aye, big bosses are scary and difficult to dodge sometimes :D.

    • Gatsu

      Yes cheers 😀 !

  • Alex

    Troy is coming to Orlando soon for MegaCon, I’m going to drive 3 hours just to see him for pic/autograph/etc.

    If I can, I’m also going to ask him about how he feels about the whole Konami/Kojima scenario and if he thinks its going to affect the game and its “controversy” in any way,

  • MichaelPayneV

    Haha @Nyxus:disqus you got me.

    • kirtanloorii

      That reminds me. I really need to see that movie again. It’s been years for me.

      • Gatsu

        Gotta watch it too again, Scarface rocks :).

        I love this scene lol 😀

        • kirtanloorii

          Yeah. I actually just watched it again this morning via PS4 stream. To be honest, I have not seen it since I was a kid, so it was great to actually understand the plot.

  • FOX

    İ really really thought what happened between Kojima and Konami were going to be an april one fool.Now here we come and nothing.We all can bid farewell to MGS with V.İ think Kojima is really working hard his V to be the best project ever!! This is really sad.

  • Guest

    Hey guys looks like Kojima is spilling the beans about the whole Konami/Kojima thing on this livestream.
    Check it out!

    • Old Liquid

      You fucked up, bruh.

      You know we can actually see the thumbnail & title of a video, without ever clicking on anything, or leaving this site, right? You botched your April Fools joke man. Lol.

      Sine you can’t truly delete comments without Nyxus, Gatsu, or whoever, I’m sure that’s why you tried creating another one that didn’t expose your joke, 20 minutes later lol.

      • RevolverRoden

        Yup I did. Hahahahahaha. I realized that the second i posted.
        Makes it funnier I guess. Jokes on me :^)
        And I thought I escaped april fools day unscathed haha. I rekt myself. I was sloppy.
        MAN

  • RevolverRoden

    Hey guys http://bringvictory.com/ is having an interview with a Konami exec RIGHT NOW guys. He’s spilling the beans about Kojima… Looks like we didn’t know the while story.
    I’ve never heard about the site before but looks like they’re legit.

  • PrinceHeir
  • Edward Wokhands

    Can. NOT. WAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!! I’m so glad that Kojima is exploring controversial subjects. He seems to be the only true artist in game development right now. Everyone else seems interested in stealing ideas to make money while not offending people who are insanely underdeveloped emotionally and intellectually. It’s vile that the gaming industry is being shaped by it’s weakest members who are also the minority. It’s so great to see someone using the medium to express emotions and ideas in spite of what the dumbasses might say.

    As Mark Twain said, “Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.”

    I’m expecting that a lot of idiots will complain about this game. Mostly because of Quiet’s outfit. (They already complained that Kojima said rape is wrong. Only they can say that apparently.) I cried and felt the most emotion I’ve EVER felt watching a movie, listening to music or anything while playing MGS3 and 4 so I hope Kojima does it again in 5. Gaming needs pushing, the eternally offended people need ignoring otherwise gaming will stand still. The people that take offense at everything are saying that they want gaming to become more creative and “adult” yet when it does they complain and try to get it banned. (Saying GTA5 is hateful to WOMEN??? In Australia the games were taken off the shelves because of this. Saying that Ground Zeroes is hateful to women because THE ANTAGONIST rapes a woman? But a man gets raped and beaten and tortured in Far Cry 3 and not one person notices. I don’t think it’s too hard to decipher what the issue really is here.)

    This issue really bothers me and it looks like it bothers Kojima too so I’m happy he’s completely ignoring it and is helping gaming move forward so that it’s a respected, immersive and literary artform. We can’t just pretend that certain issues don’t exist in the world and treat adults like children. (I mean why was the “almost rape scene” removed from Hotline Miami 2?) I’m rambling on too much. “Controversy” is not a word that adults should use as easily as they do right now. The west is becoming disgustingly self indulgent and the individuals far too sanctimonious.
