Metal Gear wins prizes at Famitsu Awards… but no one is there to accept them

Yesterday, the Famitsu game awards took place, duringย which prizes are given out to games in several categories. The team of Kojima Productions won three of them: the original Metal Gear Solid received a Game Media Award (for most memorable games, as voted by players), Ground Zeroes an award of excellence, while PT (the teaser for Kojima’s SIlent Hills Project) won an award for innovation.

Famitsu-Awards-2014

The strange thing was though, there was no one to pick up the awards. No Hideo Kojima, and no one else from Konami.

Kojima did attend earlier Famitsu Awards on several occasions: in 2006, when MGS3 Subsistence received an award of excellence, in 2009 for MGS4, and in 2011 for Peace Walker.

It’s not clear whether his absence this year has something to do with the whole Konami – Kojima situation, but it seems likely. The official Metal Gear Twitter account acknowledged the awards, which Kojima retweeted. Although Kojima has been more active on Twitter lately, he has not provided any updates on the development of the game like he has done in the last few years.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Has he tweeted anything (with his own words), or he just retweets?

    • flying_fox

      He has tweeted in his own words. Pictures of Godzilla and stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Yhea. But nothing related on metal gear Solid V that involve any development or progress.

      I’m really worried about e3

  • flying_fox

    Damn. Looks like Konami are really keeping him from appearing at promotional events. Fools.

    This doesn’t bode well for future events (including any signing event at launch). ๐Ÿ™

  • Gatsu

    Sad times :(… It would be nice to hear more good news when TPP is so close, but stuff like this make me sad. Konami, why don’t you let me see Kojima-san?

    I’m kinda worried about E3 now ;C… I wanna see Kojima there and not some random douchebag from Konami.

    • flying_fox

      I wanna see TPP there. That, in itself, would be something.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah lets hope for the best :).

    • Batzi

      I’m sure TPP will be shown and will be spectacular. Don’t worry about that.

    • Mini gear

      konami: we had a massive new trailer ready but… kojima “couldnt make it”, bye!

      • Gatsu

        :C oh noooo….

    • FOX

      Lets hope we see a new trailer in E3 directed by ”Hideo Kojima”

    • FMercenary

      For all we know, E3 can have some surprise in store. Never give up all hope!

      • Gatsu

        You’re right :), I will not give up <3. I'm sure TPP will be there but also hoping that we see Kojima.

    • Sorry, gonna borrow a top spot.
      It seems that Silent Hills isn’t gonna happen after all.

    • ominonarepus

      Just the calm before the storm ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I’m expecting a fake cancellation of MGSV sooner or later, but all just according to the plan.
      There will be blood from MGS Fanbase, i know, even if it’s just marketing.

      ๐Ÿ˜€

  • invader_skoodge

    Wow, what a kick in the shit from KONAMI. Famitsu has been Kojima’s biggest supporters in the East as far as some interviews by Kojima say. And it’s so surreal for KojiPro to keep winning awards after Konami killed the name “Kojima Productions” even worst that Kojima himself has had a long friendship with Famitsu in all.

    • Gatsu

      Listening this make me feel much better ;).

  • Guest

    ฤฐ still still think what’s happening between Konami&Kojima is troll

  • FOX

    Accordint to this news,the head transplanting project is nothing but a marketing strategy planned by KOJฤฐMA.
    WTF??http://www.businessinsider.com/head-transplant-hoax-2015-4

    • Gatsu

      I don’t know what to think.

      “Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero is preparing to finally appear in an Italian TV program. There, he will show the complaint to Hideo Kojima and Konami for the unauthorized use of his image and his theories about head transplaint.”
      http://www.tmag.it/2015/04/23/metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-medic-sergio-canavero-will-appear-in-an-italian-tv-show/

      P.S. I’d like to believe it’s as you said FOX, planned by Kojima, but imo this is going a bit too far. I was amazed by his SH and TPP reveal though, but would he plan such a PR thing with this doc too? And not to forget the Konami/Kojima stuff that’s been going on. My brain is about to explode because of so much conspiracy stuff.

      • Mr.Pony

        I was actually ready to believe in the PR stunt thing but just like you said this going too far if it is the case. There was an actual news segment about this head transplant and the surgeon on the news in my country.

        Ps: Doesn’t it seems that the head on the plate is the same guy with the bandages in the trailers?

        • Gatsu

          It’s gotta be just some big coincidence, and that Kojima tweeting image of headless Big Boss army. If there’s some Italian fans here, maybe can check that TV show when it comes.

        • Gatsu

          You mean Ishmael? Hard to say lol XD, I mean his face if covered pretty well in the trailer.

          • Mr.Pony

            Well yes you are right but doesn’t the face seem familiar at all? Maybe is just me going full tinfoil hat but i really think i’ve seen it somewhere in metal gear.

          • Gatsu

            Hmmm not sure, I get back to you if someone come to my mind.

          • Mats

            It kinda looks like Sheldon from Big bang theory

      • FOX

        Well,the doctor got criticism all around the world and was told the head transplanting was not possible and would cause the guys death which is true.So this could be a deal between the Dr and Kojima to advertise the TPP ?

        • Gatsu

          Well, there’s always a chance it could be a deal and Kojima is a genius, but I dunno really >.<.

          Wasn't this whole thing noticed accidentally by some neogaf user? So this might have all gone through silently in the background if some MGS fan hadn't noticed the similarity. Not sure would Kojima do it like that.

          But if it's all really planned, well then all I can say is holy f*ck, mind blown.
          I am still trying to wrap my mind around the fact, that Big Boss stay in coma for 9 years. Which is damn long time, but it's a game I know. So I have hard time to accept all this omg ……

          • Mr.Pony

            Just found videos about the head transplant and this doctor on youtube that date to one year ago, they are in either chinese or japanese so i don’t know what they actually say.

          • FOX

            Well, we will find out the truth soon.Oh, and the project called ”Heaven” ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Gatsu

            Yeah we will :), yes lot of similarity in there.

          • Javier

            the neogaf user could be someone of kojipro. even here we could have someone.

          • Gatsu

            “the neogaf user could be someone of kojipro.”
            Hmm I didn’t think of that ;).

            “even here we could have someone.”
            (<__>) who could it be …

    • FMercenary

      Just imagine Sergio Canavero presenting TPP segment at E3, that would be a riot! haha

      • FOX

        Yeah with a head bandage,lol

  • cardboardbox engineer

    good for them although giving an award to a game that has not been released yet seems weird…(typo “prices”)

    • Awards were given to PT, GZ and MGS1, so those have all been released right?

      Thanks for pointing out the mistake btw.

      • cardboardbox engineer

        oh sorry i thought you mentioned tpp

  • Konami is going to learn the error of their ways the hard way.

  • ObsessedGeorge
    • Gatsu

      XD…

      • ObsessedGeorge

        He retweeted a series of headless Snakes. Maybe in need of a head transplant? ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Gatsu

          I sure hope not lol :). I like that figure, with the head included.

    Between this, the doctor’s sue, Konami vs Kojima and the new payware modding for Skyrim in Steam, what a day!
    I should have kept myself in the bed this morning.

    • MrVux007

      Payware modding ????

      • http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850
        Valve is going to kill mods as always have been, free, from gamers to gamers because they just love games.

        Now is being monetized, a great idea by Valve… -_-

        • MrVux007

          no,just no….this is so wrong…pay for mods?…there goes my further purchase of any Fallout or TES games on PC :_(

        • MrVux007

          but wait it says *As a modder, you now have the option of listing your creations at a
          price determined by you. Or, you can continue to share your projects for
          free. For those shopping for new mods, Valve is making sure you can try
          any mod risk free.* soo its just an option to pay for mods? i mean not everyone will charge for mods? help me here mate :O

          • This is not the problem. The modder can put the price he wants.
            Valve says “Pay what you want” but always from 1 dolar.

            Then, the modder gets a 25% of the final money. While Valve and the video game get 75% of it. LOL. (I’m laughing just to avoid crying)

            But wait, there is more, the modder has to reach 400 dollars in payments, till he sees any cent for him. So from Valve this is kind of “We will keep your money till we decide when to pay you”.

            But there is more, already there are people who took the code of some mods, and they are uploading and selling those like if they were by made by theirselves, some others just changed colours and sell them in their names, while the original modder doesn’t see a cent.
            Kind of piracy for mods. Insane…

            In my opinion, if modders want’s to take money from their mods, it’s ok, but always from client to creator, not through third party greedy hands, which also gets more money than the modder.
            All community (modders, skinners, gamers, and whatnot, are against this shit, of course. Except a couple of idiots trying to jump in the boat of money with cheap excuses, but they are just a minority. :/

            There is a Change.org petition online against this Valve mess. In case you want to sign it.
            https://www.change.org/p/valve-remove-the-paid-content-of-the-steam-workshop

            Now you know why i shouldn’t get up from my bed that morning, lol…

          • MrVux007

            signing it asap !!!!

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Well I didn’t win the Diamond Dogs leather jacket. Sad day all round. ๐Ÿ™

    • Null

      The 15% discount is still a good consolation though ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        I guess so. I can’t really afford to buy anything before May 15th. So it’s most likely wasted on me.

        • Null

          Same, probably won’t be able to use it. And aside from the DD jacket,imo only then Mercenary jacket is worth buying. Maybe the bags too, but they’re a bit pricey.

    • Gatsu

      Sorry to hear that :C.

    • Sovereign SnaKe

      I don’t think I did either.. did they send you an email? I didn’t even get an email saying; “Sorry Loser.” womp, womp.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        Yeah got an email saying thanks for entering but winners have been notified. And I got a 15% discount for their website.
        Better luck next time I guess!

  • captain!

    I think I’m gonna cry

  • OkitaMakoto

    Id like to believe ishmael, the surgeon and head transplant all combine to be that we the players get to have our face in game because a mini fox engine modeler is included in TPP. We are ishmael, we have our head transplant into the game….

    I’ll keep dreaming

  • PrinceHeir

    Fucking ass Konami.

  • PrinceHeir

    Gatsu

    Geralt looks kinda like Big Boss here XD

    Hype for The Witcher 3!

    http://oi59.tinypic.com/t0g32f.jpg

    • gnysek

      While waiting, you can read original books about Witcher from Sapkowski, they are great! That’s what I’m doing now. Game + books should be long enough to fill gap until September when Big Boss will visit us ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Gatsu

      He sure does look like BB in that XD, maybe Geralt is Big Boss’ brother lol.
      Still trying to decide between PS4 or PC version of Witcher 3…

      • Chico Ribeiro

        If you have a strong enough PC itยดs a no brainer.

      • Mini gear

        dont know why but my ps4 always felt more at home then my pc but both are good

        • Gatsu

          Yeah I know what you mean, it has always felt nice to play on consoles for some reason. But I love both for games.

      • MichaelPayneV

        For Witcher there is no discussion, PC.

      • MrVux007

        I’m still hoping for Witcher collection for PS4 after they finish Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk …their representative did say they would love that,especially cuz great number of them will be playing it also on PS4 …as for the choice between PC n PS4 well the only difference is where(couch or chair) do you want to play it and how strong ur PC is…(ps4 is between high n ultra graphics settings)

        • Gatsu

          Witcher collection would surely be nice for PS4 later :).
          I think i get it for PC, because Steam got the earlier games too and I got pretty good PC.

          I like to switch between couch and chair, but I need to get wireless K+M or controller before Witcher 3 release, so can play PC games using TV a little better :D.

          • MrVux007

            yea those damn wrings,are nerve breakers ๐Ÿ™‚ hope you have fun mate ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ObsessedGeorge

      I wish Big Boss’ ponytail was as realistic as Gerald’s.

    • MichaelPayneV

      He doesn’t just look, he acts like Big Boss if the events of the second act of MGS3 didn’t happen.

  • Gatsu
  • Gatsu

    This is superb ;), now I really want to play MGS4 again.

    • kirtanloorii

      That ending still gives goose bumps even after all these years.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah it sure does, all them emotions. Not every game can give such feelings after many playthroughs or after watching it. I mean even MGS1 still gives me the feels after so many years when seeing the ending etc :D.

        • kirtanloorii

          They weren’t lying when they said “The best is yet to come.”

  • invader_skoodge

    WOW!!!! This is just awful. WTF is going on. If you guys haven’t downloaded P.T. yet. Do so now because KONAMI is pulling it off the Playstation Store.

    http://kotaku.com/pt-is-going-to-be-disappearing-from-the-playstation-sto-1700220791

    • Ravenous

      WTF indeed Oo Could be that kojima’s name is plastered all over the ending, and Konami couldn’t persuade Kojima to start working on SH?

      Thereby PT would end up being false advertisement because it clearly states that Kojima is behind it?

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Man, l was expecting this would happen.

    • Gatsu

      Oh what the hell is going on ;C !? Why remove one of the best and most downloaded demo ever created.

      “The distribution period of โ€œP.T. (Playable Teaser)โ€œ on PlayStation Store will expire on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.”

      I didn’t even know there was some period for it… has to be Konami’s doing related to this recent stuff. Enough is enough Konami ;(!

      Download it now folks if haven’t and play it. I was hoping for P.T. to release on PC also, but I guess it’ll never happen.

    NOOOOOOO GODDAMIT >;C! I was so much looking forward to this after TPP and hoping the duo would still do it… So no Kojima and Del Toro, ffs :(…

    According to N4G user, It was said at del Toro’s panel at the San Francisco International Film Festival last night, and this was retweeted/confirmed by his assistant. So was that beautiful P.T., which did horror the right way all for nothing then?

    • MrVux007

      guess we shall find out when Kojimas contract expires

      • Gatsu

        Yeah I guess we just have to wait and see, maybe hear more details from Kojima in the future. It really sucks to see news like this, when all I wanna do is wait for September, see positive news about TPP and other Kojima related stuff.

        • MrVux007

          Even tho im happy i wont be shitting my pants from playing SH,im also kinda depressed IF it indeed gets cancelled…..Kojima even promised that the game will come with a fresh pair of trunks…. :_(

          • Gatsu

            We might see some similar kind of horror game in the future from Kojima and Del Toro, the kind that makes us shit our pants…not sure. P.T. gave some huge hype for SH but now…the feeling is gone.

            Also if people say this is still some kind of trolling, well imo is not. People seem to cancel TPP pre-orders again because of this.

    • flying_fox

      Not for nothing… P.T. was thrilling and amazing in itself. I’m grateful for it… And sad it’s being shut down like that, disappearing forever. It’s almost more revolting than Silent Hills being canceled.

      • Gatsu

        True, I am grateful for it also. I maybe worded my post the wrong way sorry :).

        I still haven’t been able to finish it, get stuck in those last puzzles and too scared to keep trying lol. I almost never get scared when playing these days, but P.T. did it so well. Just shows how amazing atmosphere could’ve also been done to SH by same people.

  • Xilurm
    • Gatsu

      Yeah…

    • kirtanloorii

      When Kojima’s contract expires, hopefully he can sit down and explain exactly what happened. Konami seems hell bent on shutting themselves down or something.

      What is that? :O

      • Gatsu

        It’s from the TGS 2014 Jungle gameplay demo and it briefly showed that TPP will have the ghost Lisa from P.T.

        • Silverius

          Spooky stuff.

          • Raymondius
  • MrVux007

    in other news….Witcher 3 will have nanomachines ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Now, that is a massive massive messed up Konami!

    Since your fall out with Kojima san went public, you guys just made things alot more worse from the fans perspectives. And now this?… Really?… Is there really so much hate towards Kojima san? Now, you guys may argue that here is no hate ad all… But that is the vibes that i get. I am pretty sure that I am not the only one.

    Right now, honestly, I am so overly worried about the fate of the MGS V TPP. Paranoid?… may be. But that’s how I am feeling right now. And it is not a very nice feeling to have, I promise you. Not very nice at all.

    • MrVux007

      Trust me mate,i have more serious things to worry about ….do i have enough toilet paper,have i payed the bills,did i close down porn tab before my gf came home and so ,on so on…all of those things have multiple fates….but MGSV fate? its fate is that it will be on our shelves,its fate that public will go wild with satisfaction and some…its fate that it will echo thru the ages as one of the best games ever created…..that is what i know…..that is what i believe…..now if you dont mind,if have some explaining to do to my gf about some Quiet screenshots ….

      • Gatsu

        Good luck explaining, you need it ;).

      <3 Stefanie
      With all the sad news about SH and stuff going around, this interview cheered me up :).

  • invader_skoodge

    Let’s all take a moment to remember the Concept Trailer for Silent Hills……..I…I can’t even right now.

    • Gatsu

      This trailer gave me the chills…

      Just imagine how incredible Silent Hills could’ve been like, when P.T. was such mind-blowing experience. And it was only a small teaser that many talked about for long time. There was a lot of times when I imagined how SH is gonna be like and was so happy that Kojima was doing it. I was very confident he’ll make SH amazing again with his buddies and was looking forward to see Reedus’ performance in it ;).

      But then this news come ;(… it break my heart because I miss good horror games. There’s not many games these days that do horror right at all imo, but SH was gonna be the game to change that and show how it’s done. Last one that scared me was maybe Dead Space, but that came out pretty long time ago.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        just watched sh reveal trailer today and i cried!

    • Now that you posted that video, and that guy remembers me of Chico, i will try to watch the whole PT demo in Youtube and try to see from a Metal Gear The Phantom Pain point of view.
      Maybe Silenth Hills wasn’t made to be a game, just another way for Kojima to fool us or to promote the another game.
      I will put myself in completelly conspiranoic fan point of view. So something will be weird.

      I just can’t believe this game will be cancelled, and if it is so, then it never was mean to be released.

      Watching now… See you in 30 minutes.

      Weird clues:

      ยทThe Bright option in the game is a skull head or radiography… What does this have to do with Silent Hill?
      ยทThe studio 7780s. Where this studio came from?
      ยท”Watch Out, The gap in the door… It’s a separate reality.
      The only me is me. Are you sure the only you is you?”
      ยทAbout the murders from the radio, both killers were “Fathers” killing their own families and “children”.
      ยทThe movement of the head of the ghost woman, is the same as Gray Fox head movement when he gets nuts. (Very effective by the way)
      ยทThe number 204863, no idea, to be honest. Ni-Zero-Shi-Hachi-Roku-San.
      ยท”Gouge it out” in the pic of the family.
      ยทWhen talking to the bag, it says: “I walked, i couldn’t do nothing but walk, and then, i saw me, watching me from myself. But that wasn’t me, watch out, the gap in the door… It’s a separate reality.
      The only me is me. Are you sure the only you is you?”

      Editing…

  • Venom_Sina

    Konami has told Eurogamer
    that it will continue to work on the Silent Hill franchise and its
    contract with actor Norman Reedus has expired, although no other
    information specific to Silent Hills has been made clear.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah, they will continue it without Kojima, Del Toro and Reedus. I wonder how it will turn out…oh wait, I think I already know.

      “Norman Reedus: Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it’ll come back around. Sorry everyone”

    Well on to other news, a sequel to the kick ass movie Pacific Rim by Guillermo Del Toro is coming on 7th April 2017 :). It got delayed a bit I think.
    If you haven’t seen the 1st movie, watch it now it’s really awesome.

    • invader_skoodge

      It’s really heartbreaking. I think Del Toro is not meant to make a video game. He was going to make a horror game called Insane and THQ goes bankrupt. He was going to make Silent Hills and KONAMI cancels the game. I would like to see a KojimaXDelToro collaboration because they are some of the few people with great ideas and are not afraid to think outside the box.(hehe cardboard box).

      • Gatsu

        Gotta be super bad luck when two games get cancelled in a row. This was like a dream team to make horror game. But oh well…what good is it to think about all this anymore. Gonna try keep my focus on TPP n’ stuff.

        I just pray that we get no more sad news like this with only 4 months left for our masterpiece.

  • Andrea Feletti

    18 week …cannot wait

    • Gatsu

      Nice, another week went fast :). 18 feel so little already.

  • Icycool

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/04/27/silent-hills-has-been-officially-cancelled HAHAHAHA. All MGS fans saw this coming when Kojima got fired.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I guess, but I was still holding to the hope that we see it someday. I hope Kojima is still okey with this cancellation while he keeps working on TPP. I wanna give the man a hug or something .

      But really, what a way to do this by Konami. Just remain Silent and erase it all.

      • Icycool

        Angry joe just posted 50 mins of Witcher 3 gameplay. Man this year is gonna be awesome.

        • Gatsu

          I saw he posted it :), but not sure do I want to see. 50 mins is pretty much, although there’s over 100h of playing so might not get spoiled. This year we get incredible games.

          • Icycool

            I know. I dont have a PS4. Mine is coming in July when amazon ships Arkham Knight Grey bundle.

      • Icycool

        sry I went a bit off topic here. I knew Kojima is going to finish MGS V. The worrying part is whats gonna happen if konami still persits the series. Lately i have been relaxed about it. Simple decision as a consumer. Just like i purchased Black ops 2 as last COD, I think TPP will be last MGS for me.

  • Guest

    This is pretty much Konami game plan for 2015

    http://oi60.tinypic.com/s3hreu.jpg

  • Gatsu

    I’m surprised Nyxus hasn’t updated the site news yet, maybe taking a well deserved break :)…

    • invader_skoodge

      To be fair. Although it is Konami and Kojima related. It’s really not MGS related so I understand if he doesn’t make a new post about it but let us discus it in the comments instead. Once some TPP news come up, I’m sure he’ll make a new post.

      • Gatsu

        True :), but he did make news of it in the past, about P.T. and SH.

        But actually not sure is there any point in making it though. It will just be filled with pre-order cancellation posts, tears and rage all over, like on N4G, youtube, IGN + everywhere else. So us discussing it here is perhaps better.

  • Mr.Pony
    • Xilurm

      Someone might be buying Konami very soon.

      • MrVux007

        or its part of the restructure they announced ages ago….who knows

        • Mr.Pony

          seems the case, it seems that Konami will also soon stop making video games, according to their financial reports their profits from video games a very shy compared to other ventures they have.

          • MrVux007

            its seems to be going that way,yep…..cant blame them tho,i would do the same thing if i owned the company…..still it will be really sad if KONAMI–Kojima relationship ends,that bond brought much greatness IMO

          • Mr.Pony

            I’m guessing that will be a given, no more Konami/ Kojima teamwork for a long while. There goes the most terrifying game in all the horror genre.

            On a better note if Konami stops video game developing we may not have to see the MGS franchise turn into an assassin’s creed formula

    • I’m thinking Konami is going to dissapear as company, and Kojima will be the new president.
      Maybe the company will now be Moby Dick Studios, or Kojima Productions, who knows.
      I think Kojima Productions have more impact than Konami nowadays.
      But let’s see.

      Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Mr.Pony

        Hoping that Kojima makes his own studio and names it Moby Dick Studios.
        As for Konami they will most probably stop making video games for consoles at all, they will invest in making mobile games. That might be the reason they are hiring for the new MGS, a mobile MGS game. Also thank god that TPP is already so far in production or they maybe would have tried to pull the plug on it, just like Silent Hills.

    • Frederick Guese

      Most of their trading is done in Japan and UK. This is just a cost saving measure, so you can’t say Konami is imploding. They’ve been not giving a toss about their digital entertainment division for years.

  • MrVux007

    this is what i call an investigation,using solid information,and from it make an opinion…unlike some people(wont point fingers at,anyone here)…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMK-kajdgMA

    • Gatsu

      Good video and thx for sharing. It’s sad if all this end up being true, but at least Kojima’s last MGS will be able to release which I’m happy for.

      • MrVux007

        i was kinda surprised by the sales number of MGS3(wich i consider the second best MGS of all of them with MGS4 being the first and MGSPW being the third)…yea,im still neutral in the whole thing,since the little information we have is either a rumor or nothing specific….im still depressed tho ๐Ÿ™

        • Gatsu

          I try my best to be neutral too but so much sadness :(…
          P.S. yes MGS3 sales surprised me too, thought it would be much higher.

          • MrVux007

            so sad :_)

      • 223hzy

        Ironically, it was what supposed to happen. Now it is the only thing we still feel happy for.

    • Raymondius

      I came here to comment about this. Thing is… I can’t. Worst part is that all seems to be true. Let’s just hope all those people get a better future and better jobs. Bye bye, Konami. Hello, again, Kojima & Co, always on your side.

    • Ravenous

      Not to rain on your parade or anything, but like the guy in the video says himself, anonymous sources are hardly conclusive, and there isn’t much in the way of solid facts other than what has happened publicly Oo

      If you’re sortof sniping at PythonSelkan and other theorists, I just want to remind that most people making theories and analysing tend to make disclaimers to take what they say with a pinch of salt…as they are just theories ๐Ÿ˜‰ if not, then I apologize for misunderstanding due to lack of sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good video anyways, and I really hope for Kojima’s people’s sakes that they don’t have to suffer blackouts and the other ways the source claims Konami is using to force them out, that’s just despicable Oo

    • Kol Leqejza

      superbunnyhop is the best!

  • MrVux007
    • No Place For Hayter

      While I am unsure if it will destroy Konami (considering how huge and spread out they are with different kinds of markets) he underestimates the impact of losing Kojima and their most hyped game in a long time Silent Hills. One thing is for sure, if Konami does survive, their days of making games are over.

      • MrVux007

        time will only tell

  • Ravenous

    http://youtu.be/JKk6UIYiMqg

    Here you go guys: PythonSelkan’s newest analysis video, and the analysing this time is for clues about headtransplants in TPP Oo haven’t seen it yet, so I don’t know if it’s any good, but I can’t wait to find out ๐Ÿ˜›

    • MrVux007

      time to ready the popcorns….i just love watching this comedy show ^^

      • Gatsu

        I watch it tomorrow, because time to go sleep :). If you guys find any new info related to Kojima/Konami post here so can check it tomorrow, good night ;)..

    • Amrid Saladin

      i have waiting for this.
      head off, popcorn time

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Thatยดs first class entertainment… Thumbs up

    • Gatsu

      This was delicious.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Oh god no, not another one, lol.

      • Gatsu

        Hey welcome back :).

        • No Place For Hayter

          lol, hi. been kind of insane around here so I just sat back and watched, lol.

          • Gatsu

            Yeah, been some sad news pouring down these days. But I’m glad E3 and TPP come soon :). Some are still thinking this is all just some marketing scheme, but I don’t think so when people cancel pre-orders again because of SH cancellation news too.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Hopefully we get to see something of TPP before release, specifically at something like E3, considering that Kojima productions and Konami are kind of locked and closed on the whole thing and not doing much at all in the way of the outside world I wonder if we are going to get anything, we should though because even considering this whole thing, MGSV-TPP is a monster and it is practically done and some more publicity at such events would be important as Konami is going to want that game to sell considering all the money they put into it.

          • Gatsu

            Yeah I’m hopeful that we see last stuff of TPP in E3, before release :D. Also I hope Kojima will be on the stage, because I miss him ๐Ÿ™ and if some random Konami guy go there…well I can imagine MGS fans throwing tomatoes on the poor dude or beating him to bulp ’cause of all this stuff lol.

          • Mate, when the E3 is exactly?
            Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Gatsu

            This year it takes place during June 16-18 :).

  • Dr. Miles Manners

    Now that Konami’s delisting from the New York Stock Exchange, the cancelation of Silent Hills, the termination of Kojima Productions involvement after their ongoing project and the lack of any announcement on PES, it really seems like they’re done with gaming.

  • Lewis

    Hey guys, new info came in about Kojima’s “situation” at Konami. Not 100% confirmed, but explains some things.

    • MrVux007

      Allready posted .great video

  • Lenny B.

    here y’all…

  • 223hzy

    The fact that Silent Hills is cancelled is more horrifying than the game itself.

  • invader_skoodge

    • WrongDirectionZ

      He plays us like a damn fiddel…

    • Ravenous

      I’m kind of visualizing Kojima with a big blanket, fanning the fire as much as he can XD

      Retweeting the pic of headless Big Bosses, and now this? I’m so torn on the whole head-transplant thing, I don’t know what to think…on one hand, Kojima said he was going to try something that could force him out of the game-industry altogether if it failed, and on the other hand, he did pull the whole Moby Dick Studios-thing already, so who knows if this is just Kojima trolling, or if he and Canavero are in this together?

      TPP is making one hell of a big splash, and at the same time, Canavero is getting ALOT of free marketing done thanks to all of youtube and the various MGS communities keeping the whole affair in the spotlight Oo

    • Mr.Pony
      • invader_skoodge

        This is Kojima’s reaction to his fans going crazy.

    • Golgari

      So Kojima is trolling his fanbase or a doctor… Or Both?
      Seriously. WTF?

      The great part is Kojima doesn’t even have to try to make the fan base go nuts with theories and crazy connections, but he sure isn’t helping with stuff life this lol. I mean, man, I don’t even know. This whole thing has me throwing my hands up in the air, and has me simply waiting for a conclusion, if it even has one, this whole thing has a little to much weird riding on it for me to actively follow or look into. I mean honestly isn’t Kojima and Konami a little busy for fan base confusing complex coincidence trolling?

    Why are we still here? Just to suffer? – The Fandom Pain

  • MrVux007

    So when will Nyxus return to the land of the living ?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Probably when something that is specifically MGS and official comes around. Unfortunately everything recently has only been related to Silent Hills, Konami, and unofficial MGS happenings.

      • Josรฉ Lucas
        • invader_skoodge

          meh… I don’t think Nyxus is much for promoting other sites when he rather come up with a story of his own. You know what I’m trying to say? Like other websites would just copy paste stories or videos from other sources and call it a day.(I’m looking at you Kotaku) but I like this site because if there’s any worthwhile information he’ll make a post about it. Not outright make a post for one video. In both interviews there wasn’t really much information that we don’t already know and the rest was speculation so…

          • 223hzy

            But he he always makes summary of those interviews.

        • No Place For Hayter

          OK you win, lol. I let the question come come back unanswered, lol.

    • Gatsu

      I miss our boss, but I’m sure Nyxus also have other things to do besides MGI ;).

      • No Place For Hayter

        I never even considered that Nyxus has a life that could get in the way, lol.

        • Gatsu

          If Nyxus don’t show up next week, then I start to get really worried :(… I haven’t checked the MGI-forums this week though if Nyx is posting there, usually I try visit there almost daily :D.

  • Maik O’Bannon

    Nyx has been kidnapped by Konami.
    I’m just kidding,eh…

    • Gatsu

      Damn, I was thinking something like this yesterday too … What if Nyxus was able to find some special info about MGSV and them bad guys came to kidnap Nyx because of it ;O !?

  • Venom_Sina

    Looks like they forgot to remove this.Look at “KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS” logo on the center:

  • Josรฉ Lucas
    • invader_skoodge

      Sorry to say but I read it and it’s not exiting news for people outside Japan. It’s just saying when TPP will be set in the MGS timeline which we already knew a long time ago. The second part is a little more interesting but I’m guessing it’s Japan only. They basically draw a lottery(classic japan) and whoever buys MGS within the deadline might win a RevolMini Snake or Ninja. They’ll do this for every major game in the series until the release of TPP. But I’m pretty sure most people already own these games through the many many many re-re-releases and collections.

  • umbralex

    What happened with Nyxus? does Konami silence him too?

    • MrVux007

      If Konami had that much power,they wouldn’t be in this shit in the first place ….Nyxus is probably preoccupied with other matters and im sure he will be back asap ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ventris

    Nyxus what’s wrong, NYXUS, NYXUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUS

    • Nyxus is so fan of Kojima that he is doing exactly the same than him, hehehe.

  • Gatsu

    Friend wants to try P.T. tomorrow lol, because he still hasn’t. He’s gonna get owned. Good time to experience the hallway again myself too o_o…

    I have to finish it now for the memory of SHs, but damn when playing it with headphones o_O…so scary.

    P.S. I hope game developers try to create more scary horror games in the future, because I miss the feeling when we had lots of them in 90’s or little later. Shame that series like RE changed so much to action and SH became crap. Although if SH wouldnt have changed so much, then maybe we wouldnt have gotten PT :P…I dunno.
    P.T. was amazing surprise to the genre.

    • PrinceHeir

      We’ve got Fatal Frame V coming but only for Wii U.

      I don’t mind more The Evil Within because it’s the reason why my drive for horror games are back.

      Then we also have the smaller projects like Corpse Party, The Lone Survivor etc.

      • No Place For Hayter

        ^ This

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Lone Survivior for me did a far better job than The Evil Within did. Survival horror at it’s best. It put to shame The Evil Within. TEW was just a shootfest.

      • Gatsu

        Hmm I haven’t really gotten familiar with those games :), except TEW of course.

    • Mini gear

      i felt like iwas gonna die as soon as i started p.t (o_o)

  • FOX
    • 223hzy

      The person who started this petition just does not understand the situation. Whether continuing working on Silent Hills or not is not something Kojima and del Toro can decide.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Agreed, it is not as simple as they think it is. It involves Kojima, Del Toro, Konami, FOX engine, etc. we can’t get these forces together for silent hills again, it has fallen, an unfortunate truth but you can’t fix one thing and have it back.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      People are more upset that P.T. was canceled than Kojima losing the rights to the Fox Engine. 5 years he gave his soul to create a unique engine just to be thrown in the garbage in the end… That’s more important than the cancelation of Silent Hills, because if Kojima had the Fox Engine he could continue working on the game under a different name.

    • Gatsu

      I signed it yesterday, although It won’t do any good :(…

  • Edward Wokhands

    I hate it when MGS news slows down.

    Slow news-day, or rather week..
    So uhm…how ’bout them Mets?

    Wonder where Nyxus went, hope everything is alright, and he’s just enjoying watching our reslessness ๐Ÿ™‚

    • MrVux007

      i like to think that Nyxus is actually Kojima….and he is playing with our fiddles

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Of course Nyxus is Kojima, and Metal Gear Informer is nothing more than a genius marketing campaign. Think about it fot a second. MGI is an anagram for “A Rifleman Ogre Term”. Nyxus you sneaky son of a Patriot! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Ravenous

          Lol, ‘A Rifleman Ogre Term’ XD

        • Gatsu

          XD awesome, lol.

    • Gatsu

      I hope so too ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

  • Mini gear

    just got ZOE hd collection. is it good in all of youre eyes if you played it?

    • Gatsu

      ZOE was one of my favorite games on PS2 :), and replayed it on my PS3 account. Such a cool game :D, but I never got the chance to play 2nd Runner much but hopefully someday. I hear it’s awesome.

      P.s. looks like FFX /X-2 remastered edition is coming for ps4 I think during May (was it 15th?), not 100%sure when dont remember the news so well lol. Anyway I might get that and replay, although Yuna is kinda annoying and not a huge fan of some English VA in it, so hoping can choose Japanese option :D.

      • PrinceHeir

        I’m kinda deciding to get it or not since this will be my 5th time i purchased the series.

        3 copies of FFX PS2(One greatest hits), 3 Copies of FFX-2(One Greatest hits) FFX | FFX-2 HD Remaster HD Limited Edition PS3.

        Yeah they need to add in the JPN audio. The game will have the original OST as an option to switch. They just need to add in JPN audio so i can justify getting it the 6th time as well.

        • Gatsu

          I have bought it maybe 3 times ;)… If I decide to buy it again, it will be on a later date because Witcher 3 is coming ;D.

      • Mini gear

        After playing some time with it i agree ๐Ÿ™‚ as fofr ffx/x2 I loved the first game and the second was good too, this will be my fourth time buying it :p also the main theme of x is just too amazing, it gets me emotinel ^_^

        • Gatsu

          Yeah I agree :). FFX is amazing game in the series.
          The last one I really loved was FFXII and I hope it get a remaster sometimes too, Square-Enix has mentioned they might do it if many fans want it to happen :D.

          Of course I’m really looking forward to FFXV and I’m confident it will end up being superb, even though being a lot different from previous (open world etc) like MGSV.

          • Mini gear

            Never played twelve yet, I think I’ll wait for a Remaster. Wasn’t too keen to thirteen ( I swear I didn’t try rhyming( /)^_^/) ) ffxv looks so dang goo I hope it’s this year but I still got the 2016 vibe

    • PrinceHeir

      The PS3 version has a more stable framerate now(thanks Hexadrive) 360 seem to have been screwed.

      Game is great, but short. No JPN Audio(The English dub is okay, but it reminds me of the early dubs from the 2000s era)

    • ominonarepus

      I’ve never have the chance to play them on PS2 and I always loves mechas since I watch all those japanese animation when I was a kid (Gundam, Laserion, Mazinger Z, Evangelion…) and I really enjoy PSX games like “Armored Core” or “Omega Boost” so, I say to my self “Hey mate, you still love mechas… you even love “Pacific Rim” even if its only a “shitty-blockbuster-summer-movie”… give this a chance! it’s only 15 bucks! and it has Kojima behind!!”

      Then I play the first one, and… yeah, looks really cool, with lasers, and beams and bangs, but it let me really cold…

      I don’t know, maybe I wasen’t in the mood for it, maybe I’m not make to this games, so “japanese” like the musou genre, or I was expecting more… I don’t know

      And I heard that the second one improve some of the first mistakes, but I’d like to finish the first before.

  • CodeBox

    In case anyone here is interested, the PlayStation Store is having a Golden Week Sale on Japanese Games and there are a couple of Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders games on the list for either PS4, PS3 and Vita:

  • Javier

    I bought the gtx 970. I was trying resolutions and that stuff. The “screen filtering” is the thing that bothers me. Sometimes it looks good, but sometimes it don’t. In the pictures is set in extra high and off. The first picture i prefer it off but in the second I prefer it on. I don’t know. Maybe I just have to use it in high and lose the reflections.

    • ominonarepus

      I play GZ on a PS3 and I enjoyed. I don’t care a lot about the graphics or platform, as long as the gameplay is good (wich in GZ is… sometimes :/) but if the second comparison is true… OMG!

      • Javier

        I captured this images. The snake’s ones are in 2560×1440, you can click in them and watch it better.

        • ominonarepus

          that “unfocused” effect seems to make the game “unplayable”

      • FOX

        ฤฐts still the most realistic looking game on ps3. So, comparing to other games on ps3, it looks the best!

        • ominonarepus

          True. Even in “old gen” consoles, the game looks gorgeous! I’m gonna miss you, fox engine…

    • invader_skoodge

      That second picture gives me a headache. : [

  • PrinceHeir
    • invader_skoodge

      Maybe?

  • ominonarepus

    I just was thinking now, would you think that Kojima put some kind of “weather forecast” by upgrading the intel unit(for example)?

    Because, thinking of the phantom cigar and also,the need to add the chiken cap, I believe there will be some kind of restrictions using the cigar. “Let’s just use it every time to infiltrate by night(“easy mode”)” someone might say, but for sure, there’s gonna be some missions where you have a “limited time” like “find these files here and the extract that guy over there and you only have 1 or 2 days” so, might be useful to have info about the weather and say “OK, mission starts at 9 and from 11 to 12 there’s gonna be a sand storm, so I can recon the area, infiltrate with the sand storm (less visibility for everyone, but you recon first, so you have your route marked) and save the night time for the big base later on”

    I don’t know, maybe that sound stupid but, because we have no clue about how really works the game, its fine for once make your own theories on your head xDDD

    • invader_skoodge

      Yeah, It’s hard to say how the whole weather system works when we haven’t played it and have no information on it other than it’s dynamic. I think Kojima mentioned that if you use the Phantom Cigar for too long you might fail missions that give you a certain amount of time to complete them. And on recent play demos like TGS last year you could see a counter on the cigar icon so you have limited uses and can run out of it. Either way I’m super hyped that we are closing in on the Release Date.

  • Gatsu

    Nyxus hasn’t been recently active on the MGI-forums either and I’d guess he would be posting something here at least if he is present ;).

    Maybe he’s busy working or on vacation, anyway hopefully everything is okey though :C … Boss we need you and your intel gathering skills.

    For people who had P.T. before, but deleted it for some reason. Good news as it seems you can download it again from PS4 library if you already did it once in the past. Wanted to share this if wanna play it again ;).

    • invader_skoodge

      What a relief! I was holding my breath when his download bar wasn’t moving. lol I’m glad this is the case because I don’t have a PS4 yet. I’m holding out after E3 to see if they have new bundles to announce.

  • Solid O. #V

    Waiting for E3…

    • Gatsu

      Yes me too, these super quiet news of TPP are almost killing me. I wanna see Chopper + bunch of other stuff!
      Still a little over 6 weeks away…argh .

  • MiniDarthVaderMini

    Paul Eiding interview (live stream) in 3.5 hours with Yong, Fragged Nation and Korrupt Ronin! If anyone is interested!
    http://www.hitbox.tv/fraggednation
    Looks like James Horan (Skullface) is also getting interviewed next Saturday (9th May, 10:30am EST)

    • Gatsu

      Awesome :), thanks for the info!

    • invader_skoodge

      Skullface interview should be an interesting one. They can talk all about Ground Zeroes but the question I’m more interested in would be What is SkullFace doing riding with Big Boss in that hanger where they keep a Metal Gear? But I know we can’t get an answer until after the game releases.

      • MiniDarthVaderMini

        Yeah, there’s a lot of questions they can ask based on Ground Zeroes. Skullface is still a character we don’t know TOO much about, despite his appearance in Ground Zeroes.
        I believe they are trying to interview the other cast members for The Phantom Pain as well such as Kiefer Sutherland, Robin Atkin Downes, Donna Burke (iDroid voice) and Jay Tavare (Code Talker) haha.

    • Gatsu

      Paul is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ XD, just started.

      • MiniDarthVaderMini

        Yeah, he was. ๐Ÿ˜€
        Pretty much the whole Metal Gear cast (past and present) are pretty cool people. They all feel privileged and honored to be on a Metal Gear game.

  • Gatsu

    Kojima-san tweeted that image few days ago, where he got a gift. The New Division’s album “Gemini”, which is out 23rd June. The single “Eyes” is out now.
    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153256704874264

    Was checking some of the band’s songs and I really like their music. Makes me wanna hear their 2 earlier albums ^-^. The music reminds me of 80’s or 90’s bands. I was wondering if Kojima-san is gonna pick some song of the album for E3 trailer as he got the gift, but I dunno if this kind of music fit TPP :). But then again, it’s our God so he might make it work as always.

    Not every song in the album might sound the same though ;). Anyway, Kojima don’t have the habit of picking up some super big artists songs like AC/DC, so will be interesting to see what song we hear.
    Here’s the track list of upcoming Gemini album:
    1. ii
    2. Killer
    3. Gemini
    4. Senseless
    5. Iris
    6. Introspective
    7. i.
    8. Alive
    9. Golden Winter Child
    10. Copycat
    11. Eyes
    12. Murder Shock
    13. Bloom

    • MichaelPayneV

      “The New Division” Rockstar Tokyo?

  • PrinceHeir
  • Gatsu

    Lol that Paul Eiding interview <3, was one of the best ones ever and so funny XD…

  • ominonarepus
  • off topic: but if you watch avengers you’ll HEAR METAL GEAR 2: SOLID SNAKE THEME each time Bruce Banner and Black Widow get close to each other.. nice to hear something from metal gear in a theater now that I bet the movie is getting canned as well

    • Gatsu

      I go see it today :), interesting find. It does sound similar but just with a different tune.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      kuntami!TROLLOLOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

  • Chris Jackson

    I think even this site is struggling because of god damn Konami. Apparently, their gambling machines are more important. Heaven forbid they support their top sales, only their most risen division.

    After MGS5, I’m never giving Konami anything…

    • AV

      That is the whole problem man; their gambling machines ARE their top sales, by some millions, that’s exactly why all of this is happening

      • Chris Jackson

        I thought from what I seen, the machines were just their highest improvement. Doesn’t matter though. They still suck.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Amen.

  • MrVux007

    “Im afraid,its been nine hours” (540 minutes in MSPaint) …Yes,yes i
    know…you would want to know what the hell took me so long to upload a
    new pic…Well life is really trying to keep me away from this
    beauty…but that doesn’t mean i wont finish it before the MGSV release ….The
    sketching for the mustache,lips and the scaring is over…this is how
    it looks like for now … opinions (even the harsh ones) are welcome PS listening to the brilliant theme of Portable ops

    • Ravenous

      Wow, you’re doing this in MsPaint?! I’ve always felt waaaay more comfortable with a pencil and some actual paper, but my opinion is that this is looking pretty good so far. only thing I’d change would be the mustache’s angle at the ends, they seem to be too far out to the sides if my eyes don’t decieve me ๐Ÿ™‚

      Kinda hard to tell without seeing more of the face tho, so I could be wrong ๐Ÿ™‚

      • MrVux007

        It’s WIP,so there will a LOT of changes… Ty for the advice

    • Mini gear

      thats extremly good. you might want to add the slightest up curve on the top of his eyepatch

      • MrVux007

        will do…thank you for the the advise Sir ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Gatsu

      Wow so amazing job again Vux :D, I really like it! Personally, I suck with MS Paint lol and I’m more used to drawing with pencil. But it’s awesome to see how someone can do that with Paint :).

      • MrVux007

        again ty… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No Place For Hayter

      You’re pretty good. Love the shading ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ravenous

    Nyxus!! I’ve got an idea for a new article, the headline should be something like “Breaking news: no news whatsoever about Metal Gear or Kojima for over a week!” The rest of the article would read like this:” ”

    Anyone else bored??

  • PrinceHeir

    Anyone watching Mayweather-Pacquiao tonight? If so who you rooting for?

    I don’t care who wins, i just want a good fight ^^

  • Gatsu

    You’re all pretty good.

    • PrinceHeir

      When did he removed his eye patch :O

      • Gatsu

        He didn’t XD, someone just made it…somehow. If wonder how he look without it in TPP :P. Pretty good image :).

      • Hanna-Mari

        Oh eye patch! I was thinking why he looked so differend. Like something was missing ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Gatsu

          XD yeah it’s a weird look when we got used to the eye-patch.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Here let me add a comment, lol.

      I was just about to ask if we should shoot for a high score in how many comments we have, lol.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah lets try XD lol. I think the record was little over 500 when Nyx was on Christmas holiday :).

  • Gatsu

    For those who didn’t watch Paul Eiding aka Colonel Campbell interview and if don’t visit youtube yet, here it is.
    It was sooo excellent and with such epic intro lol :), enjoy XD!

    • Schmojima

      Aw, thanks!!

  • Gatsu

    Thought of sharing some MGO news too, so Nyx can update maybe more quickly when he come back. Some are from few days ago.

    https://twitter.com/metalgearonline
    “Good morning everyone. We’ve made some ‘interesting’ hat designs as you have seen in the Rex Helmet available with the Collector’s Edition”

    “We’d like to know what other kinds of hats you’d like to see in the game. Keep in mind, no idea is ‘too crazy'”

    “There’s an ongoing discussion and submission flow going on inside the studio as well, so look forward to lots of fun/nostalgic/cool gear!”

    “Walked by the art team today and saw them working directly on a new hat idea some of you posed yesterday!”

    “Also they asked me to keep sending more ideas if you guys have them, so if you didn’t suggest something yet, feel free”

    “From the fan suggestions, a little low-hanging fruit ”
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CD83_aDUIAAT0Aq.jpg

    “sorry if it wasn’t obvious but that’s just one hat being made, not showing you a hat doesn’t mean we won’t make it (or haven’t already)”

    • Javier

      I think metal gear explodes too much the nostalgic things. Like a terminator movie.

  • vic boss

    A little bit off topic , but can anyone find the video of Stefanie Joosten (Quiet) where she plays P.T?? I can’t find it anywhere

    • Gatsu

      I remember someone linking a video here few months ago, where Stefanie played Outlast with another babe. Maybe it could be that and you remember wrong ;)? I don’t know if she has played P.T. but I can try look.

      • vic boss

        It was like a promotional video really short of her playing P.T..

        • Gatsu

          Hmm ok, I must have missed it then :C…

    • CodeBox

      Found it, hope it was what you were looking for:

      • vic boss

        Thank you so much!!! I tried to find it but all I could find was a picture lol, glad the people here in MGI help each other. Again thank you.

        • CodeBox

          No problem! Glad I could help.

  • PrinceHeir
  • No Place For Hayter

    Maybe Nyxus was put into a coma until MGSV-TPP release. CHEATER! can’t do that it leaves us to actually wait ๐Ÿ™ it’s like Diamond Dogs without Big Boss, or Kaz, lol.

    • Gatsu

      Oh no please don’t let the be true ! I wonder it really happen to Nyx… NO IT CAN’T BE! NOOOOOOoooo …

    Hey guys.Take a look at this.It seems that fans really want Silent Hills:

    https://www.change.org/p/kojima-productions-continue-working-on-silent-hills

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I read it yesterday over at N4G, when it had 50k signs. Fans really do want it and so do I, but the sad thing is I don’t think that petition will do any good ๐Ÿ™ and SH is gone forever. I did sign it though…just because of SH and if miracles happen ;).

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah.We got tons of petitions like this,and guess what:All of them lead to failure!!!
        But this petition has a hidden message in it:that KONAMI did a really bad move by cancelling the project.They disappointed fans.Everyone wanted this,but KONAMI just ruined it for everybody.

        • Gatsu

          Not sure if all of them were failures, but most maybe have been :(.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,you’re right.Not all of them,but most of them,maybe 90%!!!But for Silent Hills,I really hope for a miracle.

  • MiniDarthVaderMini

    So is Nyxus on holiday or something?? Haven’t heard from him/her in ages XD

    • Gatsu

      Sorry I don’t know ๐Ÿ™ and I asked on the MGI forums yesterday, if the guys there know where Nyxus is. But it seems they don’t know either. Nyxus usually post a lot comments over there too. I just hope everything is ok and he return soon.

      Nyx could be on a holiday as it’s been over a week, when he did the same kind of thing during Christmas holiday and didn’t update the news until returned.

      • MrVux007

        he could have some personal problems…or just fallen a little ill…im sure he will be here …..eventually……i hope…..

        • Gatsu

          Yeah it could be anything, personal stuff as you said etc. Even he can’t be here 24/7.

          • MiniDarthVaderMini

            It’s cool. He is also usually active on twitter. I just hope Nyxus is okay or is on holiday.
            I mean all the Metal Gear Cast Interviews with Yong/Fragged Nation/Korrupt Ronin are keeping me busy haha.

        • ObsessedGeorge

          He’s been fultoned back to Mother Base and into the brig, that’s all. He’ll be back and ready in a couple of days (missions). ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Javier

    We need a private facebook group, so we can poke around everyone’s life. And know if nyxus is alive.

    • MiniDarthVaderMini

      Or we can keep spamming comments on this post till Nyxus comes back! XD

  • No Place For Hayter

    Disconnecting from social media, big + for Nyxus.

    • Mr.Pony

      GW has erased Nyxus, damn Patriots

  • Snake
    • Ravenous

      Hmm..either they forgot to remove it, or they are just being lazy Oo it was posted on the 4th of March though, so it’s not really new enough to be conclusive either way

  • Old Liquid

    Metal Gear Informer wins prizes for best MGS news updates… but Nyxus isn’t there to accept them.

  • Javier

    And remember this: you can fulton 4 soldiers and a jeep at the same time expending only 300 gmp.

    • No Place For Hayter

      ‘_’ > o_o > 0_0 > O_O That’s a great idea….. Why didn’t I think of that? time to scrimp and save ๐Ÿ™‚

  • solidsnack

    hope you’re all good nyx, take your time with whatever it is your doing and we miss you around here!

  • Well, i have something for you. Simple questions to make you think:

    1. How did learning about the LOSS of Hayter as Snake make you FEEL?
    2. How did learning about the LOSS of Kojima make you FEEL?
    3. How did learning about the LOSS of Kojima Productions make you FEEL?
    4. How did learning about the LOSS of the P.T. Demo make you FEEL?
    5. How did learning about the LOSS of a potential Silent Hills game make you FEEL?

    From Silent Hill PT: “Can’t you see it?”
    From MGSV Trailer: “Open your eyes, already.”

    I still think this is all marketing, to make us feel badly about the loss. It’s all about the loss.

    Don’t stop believing, in 117 days we will know everything ๐Ÿ™‚
    Kojima will come with his new toys.

    Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ravenous

      Hmmm…when you put it that way, it seems very plausible considering mankinds desire to go out with a bang, this could turn out to be the master-troller Kojima’s completely over-the-top bang to end his MGS-saga and move on to other things Oo

      Or it’s just coincidence, and Konami really is being a big bunch of A-Holes, and Kojima is just the victim of their disregard to Kojima’s contributions to the history of gaming that is MGS :

    • invader_skoodge

      Well….

      • Ravenous

        “If I die…tell my wife ‘hello” XD

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wish I could believe that it was all marketing, but all it has generated is bad publicity, and both Konami (a big corporation) and Kojima (the king of building hype and trolling) would not generate negative publicity just to make people feel something.

      As much as some people want this to be true any sort of marketing or trolling would not include the shutting down of an entire development team, and the cancellation of a completely separate game (which is their most hyped game in a long time) from MGSV, and Kojima, both of which do this sort of marketing and trolling. Just look at it from a business stand point, you can’t troll around with business, people (specifically share holders) need to know whats going on, you can’t destroy or mess with something simply for the sake of marketing a feeling. The only thing this kind of marketing will do is make Konami feel loss when nobody buys their games anymore.

      It also does look and feel like Konami is pulling away from games, and if they aren’t their gaming area is dead after MGSV is released so they shouldn’t even try, I mean I for one will not anything Konami after MGSV.

      As entertaining as the theories are, lets say this one is true, the biggest question is “Why?” because from a business stand point it is absurd and from any other stand point it is pointless and no one would figure it out and would, well it wouldn’t do much of anything, a theory for a game does not need a why because it is simply the story of the game, but it seems that has bled into this thoery of an overarching massive business marketing troll, which does in fact need a “Why?”, and making people feel loss is not enough of a reason at all as it is vague and simply not important to enough to any of the people that would be involved with the marketing.

      Also don’t forget Ground Zeroes and the thousand theories surrounding that, and when it was released none of them were true and GZ now stands as a monument of how things can go bad and still get released, so be careful with your wishful thinking, because GZ was one large reality check for theorists whom were only creating tarded ideas simply because it is what they wanted to believe, and this is another one of those theories that was created not out of chance of random or someone thinking really hard, but was created out of the fact that someone did not want it to be true and searched really hard for anything that is weird, vague, or Kojima enough that they could staple it to support their hope.

      With all that being said, this is just what I think on the subject and you aren’t meant to change what you believe by reading my opinion, just wanted to throw out a counter-argument, it is great that people do this (though for me it is way out there, lol) but other people enjoy it and get involved with it. Don’t worry about what I say, and destroy your hope, you can keep your hope, lol, I only destroy mine, just don’t run to far with any theory, because when it turns out not to be true and you truly believed it was, well it sucks and puts a damper on what it all really was which could be better than you thought but because it wasn’t what you thought you put an unnecessary negative light on it.

      • No hard feelings, of course, don’t worry. I thank you that you got the time to read my post and write your point of view.
        In any case, i still think the same way, i have no choice, i’m very stubborn. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Kojima breaks the rules once again, as usual. Maybe this would be the taboo he was talking about. I’m skeptical with many things yet, theories and whatnot, but i have a feeling about this. Still i could be wrong, but no problem, i’m always open to be wrong with my ways of thinking and so on.

        You have this same news in this same page from Nyxus. Why wouldn’t they come to get their award when they always can send someone to get it in their name? Many other companies done this when the big fishes from the company couldn’t appear. So no sense. They just prefer just to “dissapear”. I can ask the same “Why?” Even if they are in troubles with Canavero sue, and other stuff added during the last months, this is not bad reputation; even if it is all marketing at all, we already know about the good quality of the games they bring us, i won’t stop buying a game just because they did something crazy in marketing, but there you are, a company getting prizes and awards just right there, no more no less, so they can’t be wrong, whatever the game they are playing with all of us. I’m just waiting for the boom from Kojima (as a good fan of his jokes and moves), lol.

        From a logical point, i only can think in marketing stuff, not just because i want it to be this way.
        Remember, “Bad publicity is still publicity”.
        Let’s see what happens in 4 months, or even before.
        I hope something will come in E3, but with Kojima, nobody knows for sure, specially if he wants to fool all the way long till the release date, or even more…

        Have a nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

    guys i am seriously worried about nyxus, is he ok? does anyone know anything?

    • Ravenous

      It doesn’t seem like anybody knows anything unfortunately :
      Could be an accident, could be that Nyx is just tired of maintaining the site, could be vacation, or anything else, but nobody here knows…as far as I know atleast :

    • Golgari

      He is Ok. Don’t worry. Everything is fine.

    • Gatsu

      I am too a little ;( … when he disappeared without leaving any info over a week ago. Lol well I could try relax more, but I keep coming here every day to check if we got a new post XD…

      Anyway, it just hurts y’know ;C…when Kojima is being silent and now Nyxus too. I miss them. It’s like Mother Base without commanding officers.

      @Nyxus:disqus If you read this, hope you’re doing well and return to us as Big Boss when you’re ready. We’ll keep MGI alive.

      • Mini gear

        He’ll return as a phantom or maybe a fox

      • Raymondius

        I’m afraid I’m worried too. If Golgari knows it for sure, then I’ll stop worrynig; it just seem so weird considering he hasn’t even left any traces on twitter…

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wouldn’t worry, don’t give into the fear of the unknown…. I’m going to go read some Lovecraft bye, lol.

        Yes it is sad :(… it was so awesome getting news and pics from Kojima almost every day in the past. Now very quiet :C , until Nyx returns. One month for E3 so maybe we’ll survive ;).

    To make you guys a bit excited.

    you should look forward to this interview:

    • Tong Ninja

      10th May at 1:30am for people in Australia (Perth) or 3:30am for Sydney/Brisbane/Victoria. I will commit to watching this live!
      I think everyone here should commit (if possible) watching it live. The more people watching it, the better the chances we get of interviews with other actors such as Kiefer Sutherland, Robin Atkin Downes, Donna Burke, Jay Tavare, past MGS actors, etc.

    • FOX

      Yes!! This is what ฤฑ’ve been waiting for

    • If these guys are not related to Konami, then i don’t know what…
      They are interviewing the whole staff in the saga, lol.

      Someday they will interview Mr Kojima in person.

      PD: Really, where is Nyxus already…? It’s starting to make me think, lol.

  • Tong Ninja

    What’s the record for the most comments in a post for this site?? haha
    Think we can exceed it?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Depends on how long Nyxus will be gone, though what we need is some big or controversial news that everyone wants to talk about then we can make it.

      And as for the actual record I have no clue never really kept a record, probably around 500 hundred maybe, lol, might be higher.

    • Gatsu

      The record is 566 comments lol XD, which we managed to do during Nyxus’ Christmas holiday. Good times ๐Ÿ˜‰ …we went crazy with them comments and about begging for release date.
      http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=17238

      A little further and we beat it ๐Ÿ˜€ .

      • No Place For Hayter

        With the fact that we already have a release date, it will be a bit harder to beat considering we all don’t have a go to comment asking for a release date, lol.

  • PrinceHeir
    • MrVux007

      nothing beats the 80s style posters!

    • Gatsu

      I love it =), 80’s posters ftw ๐Ÿ˜€ !

    • No Place For Hayter

      Imagine what kind of posters we might get after the game is released and people finish it. I know the story will be heavy, but I still want to see my reaction to the games story, I bet peoples reactions are going to be awesome, lol.

      No.It is something like that “METAL GEAR COLLECTION 2014”.Something about cloth merchendise,fashion etc…

      • Mr.Pony

        Seems you are right, acording with IGN “Earlier today, Konami confirmed to IGN that The 1984 Collection is indeed a clothing line and not a video game collection of some kind. The
        company will share more details about this new clothing line soon.”

        • “Konami confirmed”, are they alive then? Wow :O

          • No Place For Hayter

            I’m surprised they said anything at all, lol.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    A good video, kind of foul language though, be warned.

    • Gatsu

      Was a great video indeed, thanks George.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        No problem bro, happy to share it with the MGI community. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • solidsnack

      yeah man i have a horrible feeling that since the initial amazement of games as a new exciting medium that can be a whole new way of telling stories is wearing off from the 80’s-90’s. games are getting more expensive to produce and they are just getting lazier and lazier. it’s like we are in ramsey’s kitchen nightmares and the companies have lost the passion because the profits are going down and the fridge is just full of moldy shitty games. hopefully we can rely on people passionate about the medium to keep making quality games because i don’t wanna see the death of consoles and we end up with a world of mobile games that all feel the same and the reward is cheap and you don’t learn anything from them. games need to be an experience and something valuable something with substance not just a cheap way to pass the time. i hope this made some kinda sense!

  • FOX

    WHAT THE HELL ฤฐS THฤฐS?

  • MrVux007

  • CodeBox

    Since news has been slow, Iโ€™ve been wanting ask if any of you guys thinks Solidus will show up in TPP?
    (SPOILERS)….

    Assuming that Eli is Liquid, he would be twelve in 1984.
    And Solidus was born the same year as Solid and Liquid but at a later date. (please correct me if Iโ€™m wrong)
    But if Solidus aged quicker then both Liquid and Solid, how old would Solidus appear in TPP in 1984? (again correct me if Iโ€™m wrong)
    Apparently in one of the Codec conversations in MGR it stated that Solidus worked for the CIA in the 1980โ€™s in his teenage years when he was dispatched to Liberia?
    obviously we donโ€™t know how many years will pass in TPP or if it goes beyond 1984, but I do think it would be really interesting to run into Solidus at some point in the story. Any thoughts?

    • No Place For Hayter

      I honestly have no clue, it would make sense if we saw both Solid and Solidus considering we will be seeing liquid, but it also would make a lot of sense if we only saw liquid and maybe a bit of solid but no solidus. I could see it happening either way. Answering questions about MGSV story is the hardest considering the whole thing is one huge secret, lol.

      • CodeBox

        Yeah your right, trying to figure out or answering any question about TPP is impossible.
        It would be amazing to see characters from previous MGS games in the TPP.
        Solid, Frank Jaeger, Solidus, and Iโ€™m hoping for a young Naomi, and I donโ€™t think it will happen, (but if Solidus is in the game) possibly a young Raiden.
        Guess we will know for sure in 16 weeks.

    • Somehow i still think that we could see Solidus as main character (Yes, yes, i know…. Crazy, but i like to think this way)
      In any case, if all this about Loss, to make the player feel like Snake, and finally Hayter shows up, and Kiefer was part of the plan, then i guess he should be the real Big Boss.
      After all, the dubber from japanesse version is the same person for both, Solidus and Big Boss.
      Let’s see what happens.

      Whatever it happens, i know Mr Kojima won’t fail on us. Keep the faith, buddies ๐Ÿ™‚

      Nyxus, are you there? Nyxus… NYXUUUUUSSSS!!!
      Continue… 9…8…7…6…

      • CodeBox

        No theory is to crazy when talking about MGS!:D
        Kojima has had us brainstorming crazy theories, like the whole Quiet is Chico, a Doctor attempting a head transplant being used to promote the game.
        At this point I wonโ€™t rule anything out until I play the game.:P

  • No Place For Hayter

    Well after the so called “fight of the century” happened….

    Floyd Mayweather willing to fight Manny Pacquiao again next year.

    http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/12824362/floyd-mayweather-says-willing-fight-manny-pacquiao-again

    “I will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather texted Smith on the heels of his unanimous decision over Pacquiao in the richest fight ever.

    Manny Pacquiao, right, will have surgery this week to repair a “significant tear” of his right rotator cuff and will miss nine to 12 months.

    The more i read to this story. Since the injury started since March and didn’t want to cancel the fight on May, makes me believe Manny only did it just so he could get that $50 million.

    Of course this could all be a ploy and everything just ends up being money money money.

    Shame really, boxing hasn’t been explosive in the past few years and now this happens.

    Hats of to Mayweather for willing to give Manny a chance for redemption, even though he doesn’t need to do it in the first place.

    If they want to compensate, PPV should only be at least $30 or even $50. But no $100 that’s for sure.

  • FOX

    ฤฐ feel like this website will die too

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wouldn’t worry about that, UNFORTUNATELY after MGSV and Kojima leaves with his team there will be more MGS games, and thus more MGS news. Even with Nyxus AWOL (yes he needs permission, lol) we are all here and kicking.

      • FOX

        Yeah but Nyxus is gone and no news.He could have at least say something.ฤฐ mean it’s not hard to leave a message from anywhere around world with a cell phone or something.But i feel like he does it on purpose and waiting for ”something and he will show up one day

        • solidsnack

          well you really don’t know the circumstances behind his absence so i wouldn’t jump to conclusions like that, nyx is great and is always involved. if he’s gone for this long without saying anything there will be a legitimate reason, probably a family emergency or something. nyxus isn’t being a dick.

          • Gatsu

            Yes :), Nyxus has a good reason to stay off this site, whatever it might be. He is our savior and will return hopefully in near future before E3.

            Lots of things can happen in real life which might be the cause for absence. Even though posting a comment here is not very troublesome, Nyx surely has a good reason why he hasn’t done it.

            He has been updating this site constantly for years so I’d say he deserves a break. I’ll keep posting news I find and I’m sure others will too in the mean time.

      I still need to finish the first two, lol, it is something I really need to do, lol. Fortunately this allows me to hold off on buying W3 which will allow me to either buy it at a lower price, or get a complete edition, depends on what platform I will be getting it on; though unfortunately this lets me miss out on the special editions of the game ๐Ÿ™

      • MrVux007

        i will probably wait of till the end of 2016 (probable GOTY edition of Witcher 3 release containing all expansions)+ price drop….and they MIGHT port Witcher 2 and 1 to current gen consoles in the meanwhile… till then i have lots of other games (like bloodborne and MGSV to keep me busy) ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ominonarepus

    After all this mess with P.T. being removed and all that, do you think Lisa’s decoy gonna still be able on the final version?

    • The Reaver

      I hope so, at least as kind of like a memorial to what could have been.

    • Shalashaska

      Nope. Honestly.. I said this when they first started all that drama that things that Kojima would want to add would be missing thanks to konami. Most of all the easter eggs that he’d want to add.. this here is just one thing that wont be in the game. Thanks to Konami.
      Although, if konami turn around and allow it.. it will show up for sure then

      • vic boss

        Why would they remove it? It’s from p.t. which was a game (kind of). It’s not like Lisa was from Silent Hills which will not be a game (or so we think). So I don’t think they’ll remove it , besides kojima productions are making the game , it doesn’t matter if they are under other name. They are the same people.

        • Shalashaska

          I hope youre correct, bud.. Its just that things seem bitter..lets hope things go cool

      • ominonarepus

        Yes, sadly, I think the same :/

    • Javier

      I have problems with the decoy. If they spot you, the alarm starts. If they see a decoy looking just like big boss, they don’t start the alarm.

      • ominonarepus

        Good point. But I think is made this way to buy you extra time to act, like the sexy box. After all, there’s no point to alert all the base and make come ten soldiers and a chopper to shoot a balloon xD

      LOL Finnish translation subtitles, is kinda weird to read the lyrics in other than English.

      Congratz =) and enjoy DS2 <3, go beyond death !

      I would love to play DS1 again on Steam, but it's somehow messed up at the moment for me lol, because of bad PC port and fix not working. Maybe I should start a new playthrough again in DS2 :D.

      This trailer always gets me so pumped up to play it ;D.

  • PrinceHeir

    The Witcher 3 is getting more hype!!

    Now i’m tempted to get this despite didn’t play 1 or 2(But watch tons and TONS of videos on youtube)

    • PrinceHeir
      • Gatsu

        Love them executions ;), it’s been a while since I was this excited to play a new RPG. The combat in Witcher 2 was good imo but this is gonna kick ass.

    • Gatsu

      Now that is amazing :D.

      Prince you should buy it :D, it makes TPP wait much easier too. I think I’m gonna pre-order it for PS4 after all lol, this week. The developers said that TW3 beginning will explain the backstory so newcomers can jump right into the story.

      Then you could play the others later as they might remaster them for PS4.

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah They said they love to port the two games, but doesn’t have the manpower to do it right now.

        If they do remaster it, i hope they implement The Witcher 3’s combat since it seems to be the best in the series ๐Ÿ™‚

        https://twitter.com/Bacon_is_life/status/582406199288696832

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I pre-ordered it today for PS4 for 57โ‚ฌ! Great deal!

        • Gatsu

          Nice price :)! I’ll do it tomorrow :D.

  • Gatsu

    please let this be true. Not gonna get super hyped yet because there has been a lot of rumors about Fallout 4 in the past which ended up being BS. They will announce a new game there so it has to be Fallout 4 ;D ;D …

    “An industry insider with contact developer Bethesda Softworks has indicated to PC games, the highly anticipated apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 will be presented at E3 2015 at the end of the Bethesda-PK with a 20- to 30-minute gameplay trailer. With a release is not expected before 2016.”

    • MrVux007

      time to play this thing again………….im feeling 10 years younger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jxn1sqAQ-c

      • Gatsu

        Hell yeah :D, I feel younger too! But seriously, if we get to see Fallout 4 I’ll be so happy. It’s what many are hoping for too and I hope it’s not a new TES, because Skyrim is still super popular with them mods and the Online released quite recently.

        Not sure about you folks, but I like the world, combat and enemies etc in Fallout a lot more than The Elder Scrolls.

        E3 will be nuclear, TPP, ME4, FO4, Deus Ex…and others. Maybe FF15 too but dunno if they show it.

    http://gamingbolt.com/konami-exec-let-us-know-where-we-are-royally-screwing-up-talks-about-mgs5-pc-preload-e3-showing

    Tora Shiro, who works at the North American branch of Konami recently responded to a user with the following statement on Neogaf: โ€œTotally fine, I take no offense and always encourage fans to let us know where we are royally screwing up as to find out where we should be improving.โ€

    Will they actually listen to its user base is something that we will know in the future. Moving on, information on The Phantom Pain has totally dried up. Kojima used to tweet out images before the Konami drama but that is not happening anymore. So when can fans expect to hear more about the game? Perhaps at E3?

    โ€œThat would be the logical expectation. Canโ€™t comment on exact details or dates at this time. I donโ€™t think I need to remind you to make sure you are following our channels for updates and news,โ€ Tora stated.

    โ€œWe are not ready to confirm our E3 activities, but we have launched major trailers for the game the last 2 years running at E3 and we are releasing the game in September, so Iโ€™ll just leave you with the assumptions that can be made given our previous asset releases,โ€ he vaguely hinted that a new trailer might be shown during next monthโ€™s event.

    He also revealed that they are in talks with Steam regarding pre-load and other platform specific details. โ€œWeโ€™re still in talks with Steam about all sorts of details. While Iโ€™m not privy to the specifics, I am sure that pre-load will come up at some point. I will of course push for, as Iโ€™m sure our Digital Team is/has/whatev, and hope to have an answer in the future, though this is unlikely to be resolved until we get closer to launch.โ€

    Furthermore he also clarified that the come back early 2015 to claim your downloadable content pamphlet was only a placeholder.

    โ€œIt doesnโ€™t. Not yet. The โ€œearly 2015โ€ณ people float around was actually placeholder text from an early build of the website we had made but wasnโ€™t supposed to go out. Then, oops, those copies of GZ got leaked in the Middle East and people had a website to go to that wasnโ€™t supposed to be live yet with placeholder text. Continue to hold on to your code, they will be instrumental in redeeming your GZ->TPP loyalty reward, and we will have more details for that as we come up to September 1. But until the game comes out thereโ€™s really nothing to worry about, yet.โ€

    How will this apply for new and used copies of Ground Zeroes? โ€œIf you purchase a new, physical copy with insert, then absolutely. No guarantees on used. Details still being finalized for digital redemption,โ€ Tora clarified.
    ————————————————————————————————–
    Well good to get some info at least from Tora ;). I could write a list of things where Konami screwed up in my opinion, but not bothering as I think you all know what they are.
    I know we ain’t getting no more Kojima’s TPP tweets so gotta suffer through this month of waiting for E3 :C …

    My fellow Diamond Doggies, be sure to hold on your GZ paper code so can use it when TPP release :). I also hope we get to hear more soon of Steam pre-load possiblities and to see Kojima and trailer/gameplay at E3. Well trailer or gameplay is surely gonna happen during TPP presentation.

    • PrinceHeir

      I have to see if i still have the code on my JPN copy.

      I wonder how will transfer works? Since i’ve used a UC account PS3 then transfer to US account PS4.

      Tempted for the trailer, but i don’t want to spoil myself too much.

      And yes, Kojima has been doing less activity on twitter and social media. He used to post a lot of MGS related things and all.

      Even Kojima station was cancelled.

      Fucking Konami.

    • Javier

    • Ravenous

      Didn’t that happen with MGS GZ too, or am I mixing up my games? anyways, it’s not the first time the Middle-Eastern stores have begun selling a game before it’s actual release :

      • Gatsu

        Yes it did happen and with other games too. It’s a shame they release games over 10 days before others.

    • Venom_Sina

      The guys in UAE always open boxes early!!!This happened with many games like:GTA,MGS,etc. and now The Witcher 3.Probably they’re gonna send some copies to my country too(I live in Iran)!!!

      BTW,They removed some of the contents in the Arabic version.So I’m gonna wait for the European or American version of the game.It will be available here.

        I’m glad to hear that you have access to all versions. It would suck to be stuck with only one.

  • Gatsu

    http://n4g.com/news/1722095/konami-accidentally-just-made-p-t-the-coolest-game-of-all-time

    So it seems that Konami is really completely removing P.T. from existence. Even if you previously had it and in your library, but deleted it, you could still download it again. Now it cannot be done anymore either and only way to play P.T. is, if you have it and don’t let go… I will keep this precious gem. They maybe find a way to make it unplayable this way too.

    I don’t know what to say, this is just so evil…

      I know it started out as a joke but I’m honestly worried about him at this point. Nyxus and the mods are on here are by far the best moderating group i’ve come across and the MGS community is great. We may argue here and there but we never cross a line.

      • AV

        There’s a user here that apparently knows him personally and he said it’s all good, so I believe Nyx is either on vacation or dealing with some stuff, I’m sure he will be back soon enough, but i share the concern, Mother Base without our Boss is not the same

          I don’t know Nyxus personally, but our brothers in arms mod Golgari said he is ok. So I trust him ๐Ÿ™‚ and everything is fine. I’m certain Nyxus comes back before June or well, that is what I like to believe.

          I miss him, but lets try keep MGI alive by commenting, posting news ourselves and other TPP related things in the mean time :].

          • AV

            Yeah, Golgari is who i was thinking about, in a comment it seemed like he knows Nyx, so it’s all good.. These comments serve really well to post news, so there’s that

    Short summary of skull face interview:

    1. James auditoned for the role and got it.
    2. He has met hideo kojima.
    3. At first he went for a voice that was kind of deep and raspy for skull face. But Kojima told him to use his normal voice instead.
    4. James said he only did a few hours of recording for skullface in total. Hence skullface might play a very short but effective role in TTP.
    5. James was kept heavily in the dark about the story. Hence he doesn’t know much about the character and story.
    6. Compares skullface to Adolf Hitler and Darth Vader? Might have to check that out in interview again. Not sure about it.

    • Tong Ninja

      7. He did the recordings by himself.

      • Gatsu

        Thanks :).

    I can’t believe the bombardment of bad news recently. This was suppose to be the home stretch. When we celebrate that the game we’ve all been waiting for is almost here. This was suppose to be a time of Hype and Confirmed comments spamming the site with excitement. I think this is the first time ever in my life that I’ve waited for a game with such a bittersweet feeling. But what do you say guys? Let’s turn this all around. We owe it to Kojima Productions(that’s right Konami those who don’t exist) who read the site, to bring positive energy to MGI. I don’t know where Nyxus is but I’m sure he’d want us to keep the site alive. I’ll do my part by getting ready for a Metal Gear game that takes place in the 80’s. Everyone knows the 80’s was all about the music and cocaine. And all the music made because cocaine. LOL but yeah I’ll try to post songs to get us in the 80’s mood to get ready for TPP. Let’s start with a song that became popular in ’84. This song has a lot in common with the MGS series in which it’s basically about war. Have a listen:

    • Gatsu

      A great idea ๐Ÿ™‚ and I love that song lol. Yes lets keep posting some nice stuff like those posters of TPP, and might as well drop some 80’s songs here while waiting for our masterpiece :D.
      Don’t have to be exactly 1984 songs, but anywhere from 80’s is good!

      Here’s a song to cheer you up folks XD, from 84′. Not sure has it much in common with MGS…uhh well, I dunno George kinda look like Kaz without glasses lol…I think.

      Brothers, wake me up before you go play MGO. I don’t wanna miss it!

      • invader_skoodge

        Thanks Gatsu. I want to picture myself riding D-Horse around with some sweet tunes playing on the iDroid or riding the Chopper and blasting some Euro-Pop songs. Best of the 80’s

      • RJRO

        Did someone said the 80’s?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed…. Unfortunately for me it has been bittersweet since a couple of large things came to light that I really don’t like, and I think this bittersweet is going to persist even when I’m playing the game. But we all know the game will be amazing regardless, so there is that fact that gives us all comfort.

    • Solid O. #V

      The 80’s…!

      • invader_skoodge

        That’s what I’m talking about LOL

    • Raymondius

      LET’S DO THIS, BOYS!!

  • PrinceHeir
  • PrinceHeir

    Lol too godlike.

  • PrinceHeir

    Crazy!!!!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    Wow didn’t know you could do something like this in MGS4 :O

    Skull Face Interview, if anyone missed the live stream.

    It’s an hour long!

    • Gatsu

      Was great interview :).

      • Tong Ninja

        It was weird because he didn’t seem to remember anything about Skull Face. Although he does remember his voice for The King from Fallout: New Vegas which came out in 2011. He might be keeping his lips sealed or Kojima kept him in the dark pretty well.
        I still think he will play a key role in TPP. Didn’t Kojima say in his previous interviews that Skull Face will be the main villain in the game?

    • ObsessedGeorge

      He has The Phantom Brain! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • FOX

        Yeah, he doesnt remember shit ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Tong Ninja

        Or Kojima taught him how to troll! haha

    • No Place For Hayter

      I’m still amazed at how they are stringing together these constant interviews.

      • Tong Ninja

        Through networking! They got David Hayter, then branched out from there through David. haha

  • invader_skoodge

    I can picture Big Boss breaking into song when he finds out he has a mission in Africa

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I can picture it too XD.

    • No Place For Hayter

      As I remember how big MGSV-TPP will be, lol.

  • Venom_Sina

    Hey guys.Take a look at this,if you have the time:

  • PrinceHeir

    Project Itoh, the guy who wrote the MGS4 Novel which reveal some interesting backstories, will have his works animated this year. People might be interested on what works he left before he passed away ๐Ÿ™

    I read that Peace Walker’s ending was dedicated to him. Shame you had to passed away in an early age.

    • PrinceHeir

      Found it on their site

      http://project-itoh.com/

      Genocidal Organ airs on October

      Harmony on November

      The Empire of Corpses on December

      All of if is this year.

  • invader_skoodge

    When Quiet is being interrogated, I want her to all of the sudden hum this tune as she’s making her escape from Mother Base.

    • No Place For Hayter

      That would blow my mind, in the strangest way possible.

  • PrinceHeir
    • No Place For Hayter

      That smile just means so much, lol.

  • ominonarepus

    This is good news. Maybe Geoff Keighley isn’t loved by everyone but, if someone right now can help Kojima to settle down and create a new wathever, is him.

    https://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/status/597611762259664896

    • invader_skoodge

      That’s….a bad angle for Kojima. He looks haggard and tired. But I’m glad Konami let him out for some fresh air.

    • Gatsu

      Kojima <3<33333. Thx Geoff!

    • No Place For Hayter

      I thought they were extinct, lol.

  • kirtanloorii

    We have 16 more weeks to go. They will be over before you know it.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah they will :), so many weeks gone already since they announced release date.

  • Javier

    Come on

    • Gatsu

      XD lol

      • Javier

        I had this for days waiting a new post and today I decided to use it here. I wasn’t expecting Nyxus back.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Recruit him, replacing heads will be important for diamond doggies…… maybe. Either way more medical experts the better.

      • Javier

        Good point. He needs some time in prison before working with my soldiers

  • PrinceHeir
    • No Place For Hayter

      Cool, that’s awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ now lets wait and see if it turns into something, and does not fall into obscurity, failure, or simply lose all motivation and turn into a scam when they get the money. To do this sort of thing and succeed you have to both be really good and hard working, and you also have to really want to make the game, and if you are missing one of these qualities the game never makes it. Despite of dislike of these sort of things, I just might put some money behind it ๐Ÿ™‚

      • No Place For Hayter

        Well it certainly exploded (thankfully), so we are going to get a product, but it waits to be seen if it will actually be good or not. Considering I’m a huge fan and loved the 2D castlevania games, I have much hope, but unfortunately even the best of things can easily fall apart and deliver a terrible product, but like I said I have lots of hope for this ๐Ÿ™‚

  • No Place For Hayter

    Well Nyxus is back, did you rike it?
