    • Icycool

      I thought you were logical but now you are just plain idiot.

      • Mini gear

        hes talking about a crazy theorist named pythonsnake who makes clues with absolutley nothing :p funny to watch though

        • Icycool

          Name is PythonSelkan. If you goal is trying to diss someone atleast use right name.

          • Mini gear

            not dissing him, he just makes crazy ideas, i got confused with anouther username so i spelling his name wrong

          • MichaelPayneV

            Half true, i was not dissing Pyhton Selkan (Got it right now, YEAAAAH) but i was making fun of him in a friendly way.

            Why Friendly? All though his theories don’t make sense a lot of the time, i appreciate the time and effort put in to The Editing, is not that easy, you know, if it was i would be making Videos as well.

            I don’t like him, but i respect him as a Youtuber.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Thanks for correcting me, i really do, but please, don’t be a dick about it, alright, i welcome corrections when i’m wrong as long as i’m told in a nice way.

          • Icycool

            I was just pulling your leg. Got busy with school projects. Haven’t visited in a while. Did not meant to come out as rude.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well if you apologize I forgive you.

    • AbdElRahmanSnake

      MGSV Detailed Analysis part 3 hands of grey , gray fox is the new snake +99 hours video

      Contains 98 hours of cutscenes and music

      • WrongDirectionZ

        Oh yea, this is exactly how you feel while watching his videos. Man, iám so tired of the hole Gray Fox is BB thing…

  • Amazing details on all the small interchangeable parts. And the camo they chose looks great too.

  • Gatsu

    I like this figure 🙂 !

    Btw this is so amazing http://thezeroreview.com/newsitorial/art-meaningful-mechanics/

    Just makes me dream about what all sort of details Kojima adds into TPP :D. It also makes me sad that MG will maybe be so much different without him in the future, but I’m interested to see what he comes up with in his next projects with that creative mind <3. Kojima is a true legend!

    • solidsnack

      this was amazing! got me more hyped for TPP too. i was thinking about the boss fight with psycho mantis when he was talking about it i always felt like when i was changing the control ports i was helping snake and collaborating with him in the fight like we were fighting together. really cool moment.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah :D! I remember playing MGS1 for the first time in 1998, and I had HUGE trouble defeating Mantis lol. Then when I finally somehow realized that had to change controller from port 1 to 2 lol, or was it memory card. Whhyyyy, WHY can’t I read your mind!? Heheee got ya >:D

        Also that other mind-blowing thing was how to find out Meryl’s codec number. I didn’t first notice it was on the back side of MGS1 game lol :D.

        • Mini gear

          mgs is the one game when killing feels like failure

          • TIHamm .

            So true MGS1 was the only game where i came to remember every boss character, and after hearing their stories, felt as if I’ve done a bad thing…Sniper Wolf…
            Can’t wait to see them young and see more of them in MGSV, hopefully

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Excellent video man!

      For a moment there I thought he wasn’t going to mention the fact that you need to switch your controller port to beat Psycho Mantis :P.

      The Sorrow boss from MGS3 is just one of the many reasons why I love MGS games and MGS3 is my favourite.
      On my first play-through I murdered a lot of soldiers, I literally wouldn’t leave an area until every enemy soldier was dead. My favourite way of doing that was coming up behind them and slitting their throats.
      When I got to The Sorrow part, there were a ton of soldiers on that river and I began to think like “OMG, what have I done!” because most of them had their throats slit which is what I was doing.
      I finished the game and began my second play-through. This time it was all nice and clean and when I got to The Sorrow I felt proud because the only spirit in that river was The Sorrow himself :).

      It’s the sum of all these small but important details that truly make Kojima a genius and IMHO MGS the best videogame saga to date!

    • Shalashaska

      In conclusion..anyone who has seen that video and still says Hideo Kojima isnt someone who changed the gaming Industry, needs to get checked. THIS here is why he deserves the tagline of A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME to be put on every game he makes. BECAUSE It is HE who made MGS what it is. Without him, the gaming industry would be different. Thank YOU Kojima-san. YOU WILL BE MISSED and so will the true Hideo Kojima made MGS series.
      The Industry needs more Devs like him.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Exactly, the Tarantino example was a great way to make that point.

        • Gatsu

          Indeed, it was a great example. Every movie fan knows that Tarantino makes amazing movies, it’s the same with Kojima’s name :).

  • Shalashaska

    First of all… THAT THING IS

    http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/2013/03/awesome.gif

    Secondly – Does anyone feel like Kojima is just playing with us with the whole gray fox is Big Boss and always releasing stuff which makes us feel that they gray fox is Big Boss theory could be correct…

    Either that OR he is actually hinting to us that Big Boss has some weird secret.. perhaps Gray fox is invovled with gray fox.. but perhaps not a body double or whatever.. just a thought..

    Thirdly (unrelated) – Anyone having issues searching stuff on google? It takes ages for me…erasing history works for like a page or two and then its back to being slow :S And i dont want to switch because i love google so much :'(

    • Gatsu

      I haven’t noticed problems with google search at the moment. Sometimes there could be, but it is pretty rare to me :).

    • Jak

      He’s not even remotely hinting at that. It’s the silver and yellow arm he showed off in the last batch of gameplay videos with Quiet.

      Gray Fox is many years younger than Big Boss. Many, many years.

  • kirtanloorii

    I noticed that he has the tranq gun from GZ. Does this mean it will be in TPP?

    • Cobra Commander

      You mean does TPP have a tranq at all?
      From the TPP demos the tranq gun looks the same other than an external thread type suppressor. What I’m thinking is your tranq gun starts off with the external suppressor that wears out with use. Then through R&D you eventually develop the tranq gun from GZ with the internal barrel suppressor that doesn’t wear out.
      Just a theory though.

      • solidsnack

        this is what i was thinking too the GZ gun will be the max upgrade for the silencer anyway

      • kirtanloorii

        That’s what I’m thinking too.

    • Jak

      Have you not watched the video with Snake and Quiet? He uses it for a large part of the video.

      edit: ohhh, you mean that specific model. Yeah, I’d be surprised if it doesn’t, given we’re getting the sneaking suit from it.

  • DarpaLT.Sigma_

    Best venom snake action figure made so far.. at least by image quality

  • flying_fox

    Damn you, SquareEnix.

    Well, it’s not as bad as multicolored Raidens but it’s still so-very-obviously-lazy.

    Nice colors, though.

    • Jak

      What’s lazy about it? This is a way to address fan demand for the standard version of Venom Snake without pissing off collectors.

      They -should- do things like this for Solid and Cyborg, given the prices the originals command.

      • flying_fox

        It’s incredibly lazy. They just do another paint job for the same figure, over and over again, without changing any feature or accessory. Easy money for them.

        Also, these 2 figures have already sold out, and are currently being resold for twice their price on various Japanese shops.

        Great way to address fan demand and not to piss off collectors!

        • Jak

          Okay, the Cyborg alt was incredibly limited, any of the others who didn’t immediately sell out haven’t gotten alts, and they’ve even gone so far as to do two entirely separate figures of Big Boss in the same sneaking suit (one for GZ and one for PW).

          At this point when they’ve done a grand total of 3 alts across the entire license thus far (with what, a dozen figures out and another half dozen on the way) that’s hardly mercenary.

          And your sarcasm is pointless-if these sold out as well…that would be addressing fan demand. Like, what exactly are you hoping for? If you’re desperate for another TPP Venom Snake…one of those is on the way. They’ve already announced half the cast as figures-at this point beyond the weird Sundowner looking dudes, Poppacon and another Kaz, who exactly are they skimping on?

          Again-if the demand wasn’t there, the first one wouldn’t have sold out so fast. You’ll notice you can still easily find Raiden, Kaz, Meryl, Liquid, even Solidus-people don’t give a crap about those. They want Snake.

          This really isn’t hard to figure out.

  • umbralex

    where’s venom snake with the sneaking suit of TGS 2014? when will be released?

  • Vegas

    What if we buy like a thousand figures of BB for MGI users so we can have a discount xS

    • MichaelPayneV

      That is a great idea as long as you trust @Nyxus:disqus to not leave somewhere like Hawai with our money.

      I trust @Nyxus, do you?

      • Sorry, what?

        • MichaelPayneV

          LOL

        • Gatsu

          HAHA XD

        • Shalashaska

          buaha best MOD reply i have ever seen.

      • Vegas

        Hey, you are the one bringing this up 😛

  • PrinceHeir

    Looking good!

  • ominonarepus

    that silver arm look like Schwarzenegger’s arm in Terminator 2, I like that

  • Mini gear

    how do i buy this, i dont know japanese :p

    • They will probably be available at merchandise or gaming stores. Except for the Amazon exclusive version perhaps, but that one will probably end up on eBay anyway.

  • invader_skoodge

    I think I’ve been spoiled by figma too much to settle for just 2 pairs of hands. I know play arts kai concentrate more on the figure aspect of the “action figure” so they do away with some articulation to make it more aesthetically pleasing, but I just can’t bring myself to pay that much money for a figure with limited mobility and lackluster accessories. figma is guilty of this in some figures but at least the hands give them some more dynamic poses than this.

    • Jak

      Better poses (and more dynamic overall), but the size and sculpts of these are fun. It’s a nice compromise between small figures and Hot Toys.

  • Guest

    Gotta get both. Awesome

  • Lefta_Gaming

    I gotta get both. Awesome, that silver prosthetic arm is gnarly.

    Lefta_Gaming on YouTube. Check it out and subscribe!

  • solidsnack

    wonder if the silver prosthetic arm will be in the game for some other cool special attack like the stun arm. maybe this attachment will be like a back stab in bloodborne and you can rip straight through soldiers like the terminator 😛

    • MichaelPayneV

      Pretty sure that will be the Stock Arm, the Default Prosthetic without any abilities like the noise making.

      • The red arm will probably be the default, but who knows.

        • Mr.Pony

          This one has the same symbol as the yellow stun one so it is either the same but in another colour (customize color option for arm which would be nice) or it is yet another upgraded arm with the stun ability and some other that we don’t know about yet

      • solidsnack

        didn’t they say already all of the arms will be able to make noise? that’d kinda suck if only one arm could be used for “knocking”

    • Jak

      The stun arm is an upgrade/weapon slot for the arm. Silver will probably just be a paint job-given you can change camo and repaint motherbase, it makes no sense to assume the arms have static paint jobs.

      • solidsnack

        i was thinking the colours will signify different effects like yellow arm = a universal colour for electricity = shock. but this is also a good theory, personally i’d prefer the way you described just for the fact i wanna make snake’s arm camo colour 😛

        • Jak

          We’ll see, I’d just be really surprised if we get to play Big Boss Dress Up and get stuck with an arm based on functionality.

          Though man, i’ll have to match his arm to my mother base-hello Unit-01 colours.

    @Gatsu88:disqus New Deus Ex Human Divide announcement and new trailer tomorrow 🙂

    Looking awesome!!! Definitely one of my favorite stealth games of last gen. Even played it much more than MGS4.

    Can’t wait for the new trailer tomorrow! Adam Jensen is just badass!! Definitely on par with Solid Snake, but not Big Boss(he’s a legend above legends)

    • PrinceHeir

      They just need to announce the next Hitman and Splinter Cell and i’m satisfied with the stealth genre this gen 🙂

      All i’m hoping for Deus Ex Human Divide is full third person view mode. That’s it.

      I just want to see how badass my Jensen is during sneaking missions just like Snake.

      http://media.giphy.com/media/3oEdv9qZL3L8qVIeKQ/giphy.gif

      • Venom_Sina

        That’s not gonna happen!!!Cause Deus Ex is a First Person-Role Playing game.Changing the FPS to TPS is not a good idea for Deus Ex franchise,cause fans will be dissapointed etc.

        Also these new pics shows that this game is a First Person:

      • stocchinet .

        I’m the only one that thinks splinter cell is a bit overrated? I played all the classic ones and i found the story very boring and uninspired (oh god terrorist, bombs, blablabla), sam fisher is a boring character, every time you got spotted you have fucked up everything impossible to recover the situation (same and even more bad for hitman), a good game, but not so impressive ihmo

    • Gatsu

      OH MY GOD YEAH :D:D:D ! This is soooo amazing news, I love Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Human Revolution was incredible <3, not to forget all that cyberpunk setting! I think I'll start a new game in it today :D.
      Thx Prince 😀 !

      I agree Jensen kicks ass :D, even his voice too. Oh maaan, I can't wait to see how good it will be! I'm hoping they add superb OST to it like Revolution had, but one thing I'd like to see is more 3rd person gameplay. 1st person worked really well too and we did see Jensen when taking cover or stealth killing enemies, but I hope we get to choose between the gameplay angles :). But DE has always been 1st person so dunno if it happen.

      So it seems it'll be a direct sequel, happening 2 years after Revolution or something. Sounds great.
      It's scary to think if technology for real somethings gets to the point as in Deus Ex or other scifi games/movies, with high tech human augmentations.

      So badass http://i02.kanobu.net/r/e397780a861ebc24733522867b32ac5c/1040x-/u.kanobu.ru/editor/images/71/46a588cb-9151-4122-a449-f1144d434d29.jpg

  • PrinceHeir

    Hehe maybe Kojima should go to Square Enix and make a new Deus Ex game under his direction 🙂

    That would be awesome though!

    http://media1.gameinformer.com/filestorage/CommunityServer.Components.SiteFiles/imagefeed/featured/square-enix/deus-ex/mankind-divided/cover-982348/cover-reveal-spread.jpg

    • MichaelPayneV

      Or go at Ubisoft and make Splinter Cell and make what The Boss said in MGS3, switch sides.

  • WrongDirectionZ

    I laught so hard on that one. Now we have finaly a fiddel song… 😀

    • That’s the best part of the review, Everything else had me shaking my head. Horrible jokes.

      • WrongDirectionZ

        Yeah, love the song ^^ and i think the humor is not so bad, but hey… its just an opinion. I had to disagree with the final verdict. I played the shit out of GZ and it was worth the 30€ i payed

        • Him saying P.T. had more content than Ground Zeroes was where I was like, everything else he says is going to go out the other ear…

          • WrongDirectionZ

            same here

    • invader_skoodge

      LOL, When he said Paz had a bomb in her “chest” and they were doing “chest surgery” Does this guy know basic human anatomy? The review was Meh. The song was Yes.

  • PrinceHeir

    @Gatsu88:disqus

    Here’s the full trailer of Deus Ex Mankind Divided 🙂

    • PrinceHeir

      FUCKING HYPE!!!!

      Also it seems Square Enix Visual Works is doing the CGI once again just like Human Revolution :O

      It seems one of the endings did happened.

      *END SPOILERS

      About destroying Panchaea and everyone inside of it eliminating the truth, but now he survives and probably wants to prevent that from happening again.

      When you see him floating in the water, he’s probably the only survivor of the area. The helicopter coming to his aid is probably Prichard.

      Seems Eliza Cassan is still alive(well she is an AI tbh). I also expect Garvin Quinn to be looking for Jensen since at the end of The Missing Link, he did say he will find Jensen and join their cause one way or the other.

      Jensen moves like a beast, so many new toys, heck the way he moves is straight from Ghost in the Shell/Matrix. With how Major moves and goes for the kill, same with Neo.

      I love the remix of the main theme!! Michael Mccann is already confirmed to be returning as the composer so i expect some Godly music 🙂

      All i want now is just Full 3rd Person view. I know the series started as a first person, but most of the social interactions and cutscenes has always been 3rd person. So just give us that option and i’m good with that!!

      HYPE AS HELL FOR THIS!! Definitely Day 1 for me!!!!

      • Gatsu

        LOL I was just about to post it too XD. Been drooling all over it for
        few mintues lol :D, one of the best freaking trailers EVER sooooo goooooooood !

        That fcking music is so amazing :), love all those new moves he got too. When he open the hand to fire that electric pulse, it remind me of this but just a little more high tech lol.
        http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/deadliestfiction/images/c/cf/Cannon_Arm.jpg

        Yea one of the endings did happen as you mentioned <3.

        I am so glad that Elias Toufexis is Jensen's voice again, he rocks! One more game to add into my ultra hype train!!!

        • PrinceHeir

          One thing i would want them to improve is the health system as well as the audio and sound volume are really low even when maxed out.

          Your a freaking fully augmented battle tank yet you go down with a few bullets. I also want to hear more of Michael Mccan’s music since some of his themes are really great, but hampered by the low volumes of the game.

          Hopefully they’ll all fix this as well as 3rd Person Camera view(not gonna let that go till they implement it :P)

          I’m listening to the OST right now and wow so fucking good!

          • Venom_Sina

            Hey guys.Did you noticed this?Look at the light.It’s like wings.Maybe he’s going to rise or something like that!!!

          • PrinceHeir

            Yeah lots of references.

            Even have the Icarus wings on the thumbnail. Guess he is back after what happened in the first game.

            Can’t wait for this!

          • Gatsu

            I LOVE the OST too, one of my favorite game soundtracks. I just can’t get enough of Icarus or the Main Menu theme ohhh soo goood ;D.

  • PrinceHeir

    MGSV TPP and Deus Ex MD and Uncharted 4 are probably my most hype games this gen!! If they announced Deadly Preomonition 2 then i’m already gonna be satisfied with this gen.

    Sorry for the constant Deus Ex news. I was really excited sharing the news and i know some people are fan of the last game Human Revolution.

    We really need more Stealth Cyberpunk games 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Same here + Witcher 3 included. There’s my 4 hyper hyped games. They’re all very special to me and don’t worry about the constant news haha, it can’t be helped when we get so excited XD!

      “We really need more Stealth Cyberpunk games :)” YES WE DO!

    • Gatsu

      I would guess it is coming at Q3-Q4 2016 though 🙁 so gotta wait, but hey at least we got time to play many other games. Like TPP XD.

  • invader_skoodge

    I think Liam Neeson would make a great big boss, what do you guys think?

    • Gatsu

      Liam is one actor I have thought for Big Boss’ role before, imo he’d be great.
      But if we get more MGS movies, I wonder if they even pick up some experienced and great actor for the role :/.

  • PrinceHeir

    Here’s the box cover of Makind Divided PS4 and Xbox One 🙂

    You can preorder on Gamestop right now, but i bet it comes out next year Spring probably.

    Gonna pre order this as soon as i get out of my apartment XD
