Thing I’ve been working on for the past yr, with one of my best & talented friends – hope to share with you soon #MGS

Bristol-Robotics-Laboratory-2

Just a tease. You’ll have to watch this space

Bristol Robotics Laboratory is the largest centre for robotics research in the UK. Based here is also Open Bionics, a company that makes affordable bionic arms using 3D printing (some examples of which can be seen below). The picture above appears to show such a hand, but we don’t have any details at the moment.

      You know you love it.

    • invader_skoodge

      Rumor has it that this is how Mel Gibson wakes up every morning. lol

      • Mel Gibson is the final boss in TPP

        • kirtanloorii

          Can’t be. Venom Snake IS Mel Gibson!

          • You’ve got it all wrong… Quiet is Mel Gibson duh

          • kirtanloorii

            “You will be ashamed of your words and deeds.” – Hideo Kojima. Makes sense now. Thanks.

          • Jason Mounce

            Quiet and Mel Gibson are both Decoy Octopus.

        • Henderikus Fox Hatake

          Dude spoiler

        • invader_skoodge

          Confirmed

        • You don’t need Expendables team to eliminate Gibson, just send Big Boss

          • Cobra

            Well, last time they tried that…

          • Automata Snake

            Big Boss used to look like Sean Connery lol

    • Metztlitochtli

      I’m kinda disappointed I haven’t seen any “Snake was replaced by Snatchers” theories

  • Gatsu

    They will finally start mass producing real life Metal Gears and developing advanced cyborgs/augmentations. Can’t wait to buy my own Metal Gear.

    • kirtanloorii

      I’m so happy to say that I grew up in that era. The era of Robocop, that is.

    • Are you telling me that it’s time to set Snakes into the world

  • invader_skoodge

    Wow, these look bad ass. But by far this is the one that’s impressed me most and Looks more like Big Boss’ arm to me.

  • James Raskalov

    I found something interesting, but probably nothing huge.
    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2015/03/11/danganronpa-another-episode-your-questions-answered/
    For those of you unfamiliar with this fantastic series, DanganRonpa is a series of mystery games usually about students trapped somewhere, with no way of escape. Unless they kill one of their “classmates” and get away with it. But if everyone finds out who the killer is, the killer is executed, and everyone has to continue their life in captivity. If everyone assumes wrong, everyone EXCEPT the killer gets executed, and the killer goes free.

    With that stated, I want to direct you to the Twitter questions of that blog, where Kazutaka Kodaka — director and scenario writer for the series — claims his most desired crossover is with Metal Gear.

    Kazutaka Kodaka: First of all, an RPG. Probably Metal Gear. As everybody knows, in Metal Gear, Snake has a communicator. The famous line is where Snake gets killed and the person on the other end screams, “Snake! Snake!” So that’s what I’d have Monokuma say when he kills Snake.

    It’s probably nothing, but I just wanted to share this. Even if it’s two months old.

    • Gatsu

      I LOVE Danganronpa 1 and 2 :D, 2nd is so awesome and I might like it more than 1st game! Some of the best Vita games out there definitely, for me maybe better than Persona 4. I recommend people to try them if have Vita. They also support both English and Japanese voice acting.

      Btw I read recently some few weeks/months old news that they are developing DR3 but they haven’t gotten very far with it yet. Although I would be so happy to see a trailer of it in E3 XD. Anyway, can’t wait to play it ;).

      The games are pretty long and especially in DR2 when a class trial takes place, it can take over 1h to find out who the killer is. The murders are also very well done so hard to know who has done it :).

      Monokuma is so badass and funny, I can imagine him saying that lol. Monomi is kawaii too ;).
      Damn I should do another playthrough of them when got time! It would be awesome if they release on PC or other consoles too.

        I’m a huge DanganRonpa fan. And a huge Persona fan, really, but if you ask me, DanganRonpa’s better than Persona. But Metal Gear, DanganRonpa, and Persona are my 3 favorite series of all time.

        I can’t wait for Another Episode, and DanganRonpa 3 can’t be anything but perfect.

        Personally, I think 1 and 2 are on even ground. I think the first game does a better job of creating an oppressive and despair inducing story, and the second one does a better job of creating an emotional thrill ride. Both are great in their own ways. 2 is one of the only games that made me tear up.

        I love Monomi/Usami. And Monokuma has GOT to be one of the most threatening villains in gaming, as well as one of the most humorous, and most demented. I’ve never before seen a villain like him, and I loved it.

        With all that said, I’d love a DanganRonpa x Metal Gear, but I’ll face it, it’s not likely to happen.

        • JoJo

          Don’t lose hope, after all, who saw Monster Hunter X Metal Gear happening? Not this guy.

          • James Raskalov

            You make a fantastic point.

  • PrinceHeir

    I still love Adam Jensen’s Blade Arm 🙂

    All this future setting talk. I kinda want a proper MGS game set in the future. I know there’s Deus Ex, but man would be cool to see Cyborg Snake with all these gadgets XD

    • Gatsu

      Yeah that blade arm is pretty sexy, interested to see what kind of stuff Adam can do in Mankind Divided :).

    • MichaelPayneV

      So you basically want a Metal Gear Rising based on Stealth, or at least have the option to switch between a Stealth or a Ninja Body!

      • PrinceHeir

        That’s basically what Metal Gear Solid Rising was going to be ^^

        • MichaelPayneV

          I know, it was also the very first Fox Engine Game!

  • PrinceHeir
    • MrVux007

      ill buy it when they release GOTY edition(late 2016 im guessing)….and hopefully one day they will port Witcher 2 to current gen consoles for better immersion :_)

    • Gatsu

      What the hell o_O they’re out already? I know they’re giving us about 16 free DLC (which is awesome) but didnt know so soon. Well thanks for the info Prince :D.

      Yeah I’m enjoying it very, VERY much. Been exploring the 2nd area you get in the game :), very huge and lots of quests, places to explore etc… So in main story haven’t gotten very far I think, but been doing some of it and side quests too. Just the kind of RPG I love. Wish I could skip work tomorrow and just play it >_< lol…

      • Sly

        Releasing two weekly

      • invader_skoodge

        have you installed patch 1.04? I did and my game started to lag in Novigard. I’m surprised It didn’t lag before since my video card didn’t meet the requirements but it ran so smooth smooth. I guess this patch made sure the game didn’t run well with my card. :'(

        • Gatsu

          Hmm not sure, I’ve been playing on Ps4 and don’t remember updating it. There was some patch when I started play it for the first time. But it’s been running well for me so far.

          • invader_skoodge

            That’s right. I forgot you have it on PS4. I think the problem was the PC version had an update that added Ultra settings to the graphics so it scrambled my custom settings but I fiddled about with it and it’s working right. I had a scare for naught.

    • Hmm, the new Skyrim.
      When i finish Skyrim, maybe… 🙂

  • MichaelPayneV

    What’s up MGI, i’m back after East European Comic Con, i missed you guys!

    “Solidsnake Cosplay” came to the con as well, and he was Cosplaying Gerald from Witcher 3!

    Anyway, this is me as “The Crow”, Next year i may make “Liquid” or “Ocelot”, or “Max Rockatansky”, wish me luck!

    PS: Got a New PC for TPP, and NO, i won’t post my specs and brag about them (unless you want me too) i mean, i just don’t want to look like a PC Elitist, so i’ll post the specs only if you want me to!

    V has come to!

    • kirtanloorii

      Don’t press the shiny red button! lol. Now people are going to ask.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Austin Powers reference?

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Man that’s really great!

      • MichaelPayneV

        Thanks man, appreciate the fact that the Metal Gear Community is welcoming us, the PC Community, you rarely see this!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Every ‘group’ has a few tards, but the only thing that matters is if you play MG (and that you aren’t one of the few tards, lol), you are playing the same game no matter what platform you are on, and you can’t go wrong with more people playing 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m playing MGS since 2005, since Subsistence, MGS3 was my starting point, and i’m glad i started from there, and then played MGS1 and 2!

        • ObsessedGeorge

          I love your Crow cosplay! I thought it was a Black Metal make-up. Next time do WWE wrestler Sting!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Thanks, but No, for next year i’ll have to chose between Max Rockatansky, Liquid Snake, Revolver Ocelot and Batman, and maybe Aquaman, but i doubt!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome back, and good luck, lol.

      Good thing you got a new PC, Unfortunately for me my logic goes like this “If I were to play TPP on PC I would need a new PC and if I were to get a new PC to play TPP I would want to do so on a 4K screen and if I were to get a 4K screen it would have to be of a good solid technology (that’s not LCD)” and because I can’t get a great 4K screen I don’t get a better computer and thus don’t play TPP on PC, lol. I’m going to give it a few years so 4K becomes more of a standard. This is of course assuming I would have enough money for even a great quality one of those let alone both, lol.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Im 100% Pc gamer but PlayStation is metal gear solid. When the game comes out I will melt my ps4 and then tried on my rig. I could play phantom pain in gameboy advance right now I don’t give a fuck XD

    • Cobra

      RIP in Peace

      • MichaelPayneV

        [ ! ]

    • MrVux007

      Ahh finally when I thought I could have peace in MGI you come back (jk)….welcome back and PS. no Pc gamer looks elitists when “bragging” about specs they have…however they do look elitist when they try to rub it in into other gamers like console users and PC users who have low end PC,and proclaiming that those users will have “significantly inferior experience” etc… when in the end it’s the same game and preference always will be the biggest factor for “immersive experience” 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Heh, i guess we are like Big Boss and Ocelot, we love to hate each other, but in the end we have respect for each other!

    • Tong Ninja

      You look like one of the members for KISS haha! Awesome cosplay though.
      So can you summon crows?? 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Sure, but Next year i may be able to posed people through my Right Arm (hint)

    • Gatsu

      Hey welcome back brother 😀 and I was wondering where you had gone to! That’s amazing cosplay, hope you had lots of fun there ;).

      Also gratz for getting a new PC :D, there’s no better time for it when our masterpiece game is gonna release soon.

  • Shalashaska

    Is it a mechanic arm ? Ofcourse it is.

    Time to starting chopping.

    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/ec/55/86/ec558630839cbaa08ad7b811b5a75e8a.jpg

    Give it to me now.

    • Gatsu
  • MichaelPayneV

    Just saw Mad Max Furry Road, and if Venom Snake is a silent character in the way Mad Max is silent, and Quiet or Ocelot depending on your choices will play a role in TPP like Furiosa, then i can’t freakin wait!

    Tom Hardy was the only one acting Over the Top in a “Hayter Snake” way, he rarely talked, but he had the David Hayter Attitude combined with Skull Face’s Tone!

    • MrVux007

      Hey I told ya long time ago that “less talking” works if the actor knows his stuff …The Dollars trilogy still is the prime example of that IMO

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yeah, and if Fury Road is any sign, then DO NOT KILL QUIET if you want the proper Cinematic Experience!

        • MrVux007

          exactly :3

    • Gatsu

      Saw it on last Saturday too, amazing movie. Tom Hardy did great job as the silent Mad Max, with having Snakey kind of voice when talking :).

      • MichaelPayneV

        Exactly.

  • PrinceHeir
    • Mini gear

      mgs is the future of thw3 0_0

    • No Place For Hayter

      Biggest Boss?

    • Shalashaska

      I SWEAR I WAS just doing this right now was going crazy about how similar they look! 😀

    • Gatsu

      Now that’s freakin’ awesome :D!

  • Mini gear

    my ferret just typed this when it climbed up my desk

    • No Place For Hayter

      Careful, it might have some semblance of intelligence, lol.

      • Mini gear

        maybe it knows arsenel gears launch codes

  • Metztlitochtli

    I’m kinda disappointed I haven’t seen any Snake is a Snatcher” theories… Maybe I haven’t been looking hard enough?

  • Automata Snake

    Since they’re having Kiefer play Big Boss, maybe they should have his father Donald Sutherland voice the old gray Big Boss!
