Kojima responds to comments about MGSV being too dark

On Twitter, Hideo Kojima has responded to those who feel the latest MGSV: The Phantom Pain trailer is too dark. He said:

Kojima-MGSV-too-dark-1Kojima-MGSV-too-dark-2Website Dualshockers translated the original Japanese versions of these tweets, which are a little more elaborate than the English translations:

The requirements and contents of the missions are various: Intelligence, rescue, interdiction, destruction, interference. Through the free infiltration, our army will collect technology. While improving our base, we’ll acquire the opportunity for revenge and learn the identity of our revenge target.

The story itself is a story of revenge, and of men who ‘become demons’. But it seems like according to Kojima, the freedom offered by the gameplay somewhat balances it out, giving you some room to breathe, perhaps. We also know that the game will have its share of humorous and lighthearted moments, to make sure it doesn’t become overwhelming in its bleakness.

  • TykoG

    I like how Kojima wants to show in the darkest way possible, Big Boss’s descent into a demon.
    But we also need to appreciate that like every MGS game, Kojima’s sense of humor hasn’t vanished (gameplay freedom and possibly some funny tapes) 🙂

    What the hell KONAMI!!

    • Franky

      im pretty sure Big Boss would hate angry Joe like poison.

      • MichaelPayneV

        You’re missing the whole point here!

        • Hideo

          Damn, hes (Angry Joe) is fat.

      • Hideo

        Damn, he’s fat.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yes, but he could lose this weight with Gym, so is not a problem at all.

      • Braden Gunn

        Why would Big Boss hate Angry Joe, I mean Joe is just a Videogame Reviewer what could he possibly do to piss off Big Boss.

        • Franky

          just look at the first 10 seconds of his witcher 3 review.

          • Braden Gunn

            What about it?

          • Franky

            if you like him, thats okay. There are more loosers in this world than winners. It´s no secret. Thats why you´ll always win on youtube if you act like a retard.
            edit: shout out to yongyea! he´s cool.

          • MichaelPayneV
          • Franky

            now who is that loser in the picture?

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s exactly all i needed to confirm my suspicions.

            Yep, you are a kid, i bet 13!

          • Franky

            i´d still beat you up.

          • MichaelPayneV

            You’re not just a Kid, you’re also acting like an A-Hole with a superiority complex, but don’t worry, i was at some point in my life the same at your age, you’ll look years from now at what your said, and you’ll say “Damn, how young and stupid i was then” believe me, i know this for a fact since i do the same when i look back at things i said and did when i was about 12/13, so i will forgive you for your attitude, is normal, i had the same mentality as yours!

            Take this not as offense, but as a life lesson, so as Big Boss i say to you “Solid Snake”, try not to do the same mistakes that i did at your age!

            V has come to!

          • Franky

            It’s okay.
            There a people like Dr. Cox but also people like Todd

          • Cobra Commander

            I’m sorry, I wasn’t listening….. Owwww, fascist!
            I really like when Dude is in the tub and those weird techno Germans bring in that ferret…. Hey nice marmett, LOL!
            There are way too many gems in The Big Lebowski, it’s just sad that most people don’t get the appeal of that movie.
            Definately a cult classic! (It almost ranks up there with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas which may be my fave cult film. Especially with some tabs or fungus, if you catch my drift, LOL!

          • Mauricio Acosta

            The world is full of people. Some of those people do things that will not be received well by everyone. You can call it being a looser, I call it individuality. What exactly makes a winner? Looking cool or having money? No, being a winner is being comfortable with who you really are without the worry of what anyone in this world thinks.

          • Franky

            a winner is someone who cares about his parents, children, legacy etc.
            Our ancestors shed blood for us, so that we can live a free life. But also there are still millions of humans struggling in this world (third world). We all have responsibilites as a community.
            Based on that, angry joe is a damn joke to me (like many other youtubers).
            But that´s just my opinion. If you think it´s cool to act like you are masturbating etc. on videos. thats fine. I could´nt look my future kids in the eyes if i was that dude.

          • Mauricio Acosta

            What does a foster child have? What is their legacy? They have no parents, ancestry. It might be there but it has forsaken them. It is lost and in time, that foster child will become an adult. We can’t classify ourselves winners by just caring of our past, or does around us. That is a responsibility. Anyone and probably mostly everyone cares about their parents and ancestry.

            Angry Joe is who he is and like you said, you have your own opinion on the matter. Just try not to mix an opinion with a very strong emotional feeling. It can lead to very nasty stuff.

          • decoyF0XX

            Chill, so that’s why you’re mad at him? Are you a nun or what?

          • Franky

            Actually i was being sarcastic at first. Im 0 mad at him. I got mad at people who got mad at me and then the venom kicked in lol.

          • Braden Gunn

            Yongyea is pretty damn awesome, and the only YouTuber I watch religiously.

          • matttt

            Why did you make me watch that…

          • Franky

            Lol sorry.
            People claim it’s beautiful….

      • Shalashaska

        i dont agree with everything but he is correct when it comes to dlc anf mtransaction practices.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      He had to remove mgsv from his top 5 list

      • MichaelPayneV

        No, he did talk about it, he just covered the video with this image!

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Well this is just another way of saying that you have freedom to play as the goody-two-shoes you have been since forever but in the end this is the turning point of BB where he becomes the “villain” of the story so yeah you’re goint to have to be a bastard coated bastard with bastard filling at some point :v

  • Cipher

    Well, If it’s too dark for their delicate taste, then don’t buy it. simple 🙂

    • MichaelPayneV

      Done.

  • Geara

    Its as if no one played the previous games, Metal Gear has always been pretty dark, one of the defining aspects of the series is how it combines dark and serious parts with crazy and surreal parts, and a joke here and there.
    This one definitely is a lot more mature, but i think it’s a nice change.

    • Tong Ninja

      Them torture sequences in the previous games. haha

      • Yeah especially the one in MGS3 and the scene before that, where Volgin beats Snake into a bloody pulp.

        • MichaelPayneV

          And this is why in my Agenda Big Boss has been through waaaaaaaay more than Solid, the Electric Torture Solid Snake was put to in MG:S is nothing compared to Volgin’s, also the “Microwave” scene from MGS4, is a massage compared to Big Boss constant “Phantom Pain” to his whole body filled with hundreds of external fragments that bring constant Pain, for years!

          • Luamsc

            Nah, Solid had a harder life

          • MichaelPayneV

            Solid has both eyes, both arms, his brain intact, untouched
            Boss has lost 1 eye, 1 arm, has pieces of a bomb in his body, he stayed in a 9 years comma, he was killed 2 times by his “Student” he had to kill his mentor who never came back ti life, he stayed years in a Deactivated state until 2014, and he dies because of Fox Die!

            Now, who had a tougher life?

          • Luamsc

            Solid Snake was betrayed by his father figure, had to kill him after finding out he really was his Father, had endless nightmares about it, was forced to kill his best friend, had to kill his father AGAIN, forced to go back to the battlefield after retirement, tortured by Ocelot, injected with FOXDIE, kept fighting without even knowing how many years he had to live, spent years hunting and fighting Metal Gears by himself (No MSF helping him like Big Boss did) had to cope with accelerated aging, he knew that he would die before his time, even with that huge mental and physical shock, he kept on fighting, forcing his way through the battlefield, a normal man would have died from the accelerated aging, the only thing keeping him alive was his SHEER WILL TO LIVE, throughout MGS4 his mental and physical state was severe, but even then he kept going, having half his face burnt, going through a microwave hall that would have killed a normal man, having to witness his brother killing his mother in front of him, after just meeting her, and after all that, he still had to fight a physically younger Ocelot, and he WON. all that while being the inferior clone. I think that overall, Snake’s accelerated aging is worse than Big Boss losing some limbs, mentally AND physically. And the microwave hall was worse than any torture Big Boss had to go through.
            Besides, Big Boss kinda deserves getting his ass kicked by his son, he became a huge dick, Solid went through a lot of bad shit, but still died a hero, even Big Boss admits that Solid Snake wouldn’t have made the same mistakes he did.

          • Zlatan

            i don’t see the need to compare big boss and solid to eachother, just to find out who suffered more? whats the matter with that? both been thru a lot of tough shit. both had a fuckin hard time. and actually, both never gave up.

          • Kol Leqejza

            i’d say that johnny suffered the most!

          • Datguy8923

            I’m just gonna throw fuel onto this pointless fire.

            Raiden has the hardest life. Child soldier, severe PTSD, Patriot lackey without knowing, has to live with Rose, gets lied to by Rose about baby dying, loses human body for a cyborg one against his will, and gets a game where die hard MGS fans refuse to acknowledge its existence even though as a game its good.

            *runs away*

          • AbdElRahmanSnake

            I am gonna throw fuel to this pointless fire

            Otacon sufferd the most .. He loved sniper wolf and saw her die .. Loved his sister and died in his arms and loved naomi and didn’t even see her die .. He peed on himself in mgs .. Also he admitted being a nerd .. And when he cared for snake ‘i think he waa going to become gay’ snake left him … His father was a motherf*** who ruined the world and he did the same building the same machine

          • Gray Lion

            MGS Rising is indeed a good game. A good action game but a good game. I mean, shit, that Zandatsu thing made it the best game of the genre for me since I played Devil May Cry all those years ago. Plus, I like Raiden. And I consider myself die-hard MGS fan(boy) XD

          • Alex

            I’m gonna put more fuel to this. The most who suffered in the saga was Jhonny Akiba, since he was putted into shame when his ass was shown in MGS, then he get diarrhea in MGS4. And in the middle of a shooting he declare his love for Meryl. XD Seriously, Big Boss and Snake both suffered a lot. As father as son, both were used by someway or another.

          • gerber

            I think there is a high chance that TPP will change this opinion 🙂

          I remember thinking how similar Snake’s bloody face was too Jesus’ in Passion of the Christ lol.

          • Alex

            Maybe Big Boss and Ocelot/Miller are training everyone not to break, similarly to how Boss trained Snake not to break.
            Huey has real explaining to do though.

          • Alex

            Makes sense given how all the tragedy that happened to MSF was due to Chico breaking. They must be like, never again, if you wanna be a Diamond Dog, you gotta go through torture training.

    • Gatsu

      Agreed 100% :).

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      They have but this one is indeed darker and the E3 long trailer possibly made it look darker than it will be.

      IMHO there’s a bigger contrast because in the previous game (Peace Walker), everyone was a do-gooder and Big Boss was a hero (with the hero points mechanic).
      This “everybody’s good and nobody dies” atitude Peace Walker has always felt out of synch with the rest of the series.

    • CR7HarisSnake

      The scene with Emma, Otacons sis. Nuff said 🙂 .

    • Shalashaska

      I WANT DARK I WANT DARK I WANT DARK. Enough with the “socially correct” BS people. Embrace the truth. See the truth of war that you some of neglect. I know when this releases everyone is gonna be all high and mighty holier than thou bs .. without realising that the game just speaks the truth. If you are too blind to see the truth, doesnt make it disappear. War has always been ugly. always has been. Every man has a breaking point. I dont what they, even if they show more of what happened to Paz. Because, you know? That is the real world. Welcome to it. Torture like that is USED around the world.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        I believe most of MGSV won’t qualify as “real world” xD.

        • Mind Web

          I’ve learnt more about things like PTSD, weapon usage, philosophy and all sorts of shit in MGS than I have in real life.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Good for you, you’d have a crappy life if you’d learnt PTSD in real life.

            Don’t take it for granted though, every game makes up some aspects of the world they present to you and MGS is no exception.
            The Fulton Recovery System and pretty much every suppressor presented in MGS as it is, is pure fantasy.
            Playing shooters doesn’t teach you how to handle weapons in real life ;).

    • Daburcor

      Yeah, I’ve been scratching my head trying to think of why people are up in arms about the darkness. Hell, every single Metal Gear game Kojima has made has at least ONE thing straight out of a goddamn horror movie.

      This darkness is nothing remotely new.

    • Kojimatroll

      i think the people that are complaining are the people that have dabbled in the metal gear games but haven’t really experienced them

      • Vincenzo mariani

        I agree one hundred percent. People don’t understand that BigBoss BELIEVED in the U.S. Government, his loyalty was unwavering; even in the face of killing his own mentor/mother figure. He was a good man, who had to deal with the abuse that te government was putting him through. Betrayal from not just the government, but his closest group of “friends”. He was man bred for war and combat. He moved on still remaining loyal, and now that loyalty has finally broken beyond recognition. This shows the dark downfall of a hero. Any true fan understands that at the end of MGS4, he tries to rectify some if not most of his own sins in regards to the Patriots. He was sick and tired of being a puppet for a faceless organization and government. So how most people perceive as evil, I still see a hero, albeit a darker pissed off “I’ve had enough” hero. All in all big boss wanted only one thing; to be free. And if that meant taking on the patriots head on (which I believe we’re his reasons for outer heaven, Zanzibarland etc)he pretty much said I’ll go full force. And being free and taking care of soldiers who were all used is something I can personally sympathize with, (especially with the mindset of me being an army vet). People mock these games for their incredulity but you know what from a military mindset and standpoint, Hideo Kojima is a GENIUS. And yes the game is going to be darker, and so what? War is hell, ask any combat vet, the worst and most realistic war movies can never portray the blood the guts the smell the fear the adrenaline and the pure evil a battlefield and war brings with it.

  • All the power to you Mr.Kojima, MG games has always been dark story wise. That is one of the major points that we love about this series imo. TPP being darker was needed since it’s the transition of Naked Snake into the MG/MG2 villain Big Boss.

  • SNKtheStampede

    pretty much a given that we’ll be able to judge fair only after finishing the game, “too dark” compared to what? is not like kojima decides the tone of a game independently from the themes and issues he wants to address. I expect the darker tone in TPP TO BE the necessary means to touch those themes, and NOT to be merely justified by those. It’s a matter of purpose and coherency.
    As a side note: if a work of art what so ever happens to have darkness and violence unjustified but by themeselves, I wouldn’t blame it if that’s the stated purpose of that work. If I’d like it or not, or to what audience it should be addressed it’s another issue. For extent if the purpose IS incoherence that’s still ok. I think “awareness” is the key word here.
    All of that in my honest opinion of course 😉

  • MichaelPayneV

    WOW, this is really interesting

    Looks like the Motorcycle moment may as well be the ending of the Intro, and that the horn slowly grows and gets upper during the Game untill it disappears somewhere in his hair!

      doesn’t make any sense…..

      • MichaelPayneV

        If the body would start rejecting it, considering the Form, wouldn’t it be rejected upper then it is in the hospital scene?

        • MrVux007

          dude the shrapnel in the bike scene is different in shape,size and most importantly in location(lower forehead)….shrapnel dont change position like that,they either go in or out the head…. if it did, his head(skull) and brain would be like mashed potatoes

          • MichaelPayneV

            They why does Snake in the new “Redesign” has a Scar EXACTLY where the old Shrapnel was?

          • MrVux007

            idk maybe we should ask the guy behind Snake character model… 😀 its completely normal they change and keep some accessories in character models

          • MichaelPayneV

            You mean Shinkawa? I will!

          • MrVux007

            Yep,and Ikuya Nakamura 🙂

    • MeLand127

      I think that”s an early build of big boss model(with D.D jacket), which is why he doesn’t have any scars on his face. And the new one with scars. So, I don’t think both of them related..(Nice find though)

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        Dd jacket is not scrapped for the last time

        • MeLand127

          haha okay friend ;). actualy, what I mean is the face model, not the jacket or anything

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    People(Twitter morons) always moan about something. Always have to pick things apart. War is hell. The game looks incredible. There is not one game this year or on the horizon that looks anywhere as good. With the exception of Fallout 4 (Slightly disappointing). There’s plenty of that Kojima humor scattered around the game to lighten the mood.

  • Franky

    Plot twist: Ground Zeroes takes place after the Phantom Pain. The moment where PAZ is in the trailer shows the scene where they implanted the Bomb in her.

  • Franky

    it should be dark. It´s a damn game about war, soldiers and stuff…

    • Tong Ninja

      revenge, cloning, language, race, culture, horrific experimentations, tortures, etc. haha 🙂

  • MichaelPayneV

    A comment just disappeared.

    And YES, i noticed that the hand waving in front of Paz Eyes is the Ground Zeroes Sneaking Suit!

      Was that scene the reason for mild nudity

      • MichaelPayneV

        Maybe.

      i love this dudes reactions…his *Horizon:Zero dawn* reaction was totally like mine ] 😀

    • Gatsu

      Lol “Shrapnel?!…”, hmm not sure what to think about his reactions. I guess the trailer can be a bit confusing to someone who hasn’t played MGS before :).

      But he should’ve been like me:
      http://www.gifsforum.com/images/image/omg/grand/omfg_four.jpg

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, it is a honest Reaction, not a Overreaction like most reactors are doing on YouTube, and that’s why Tyrone is my favorite reactor, he is the Realest One for me!

        • Gatsu

          Hmm true it was honest :).

    • J_muse72

      I should have made a reaction to this final trailer, me and my brother were watching it live.
      My thoughts were: “Can this trailer beat the Nuclear one?”
      “Holy crap WTF is happening in this trailer!!??”
      “OMG SOLID SNKAE!!
      “Yeah it was better,excellent choice of song Kojima!”

  • MichaelPayneV

    WOW, am i crazy?

  • Gatsu

    Kojima deserves to make his last MGS masterpiece as dark as he wants=art. Give me all the demonic madness of Big Boss’ downfall to hell, Kojima :D.

    I’ve loved dark themed games ever since RE1. Also how do you draw the line that what is too dark.

    • Mr.Pony

      When monitor brightness is below 50% xD

      • MichaelPayneV

        ba-dum-tsss

        • glitchbomb

          Aha! I knew this pic would come in handy!

      • MrVux007

        good one 🙂

      • Gatsu

        XD…

    • MrVux007

      well it depends on the individual and his/hers perspective …for example you think Big Boss is going mad,and is experiencing his downfall while there are some people(myself included)that find it all completely normal considering his situation and dont see him as a bad guy…hell even Akio Otsuka stated that BB isnt falling to the dark side… but ill need to actually play the game before i make my final judgement upon BB

      • Gatsu

        Hmm good point

  • Anyone who cries about the story being dark is just a whining wiener and shouldn’t buy the game. Man how stupid is that? First Quiets boobs now the story? I guess we are going to complain about the lightning effects next. A dark story is what many games lack these days thus making it kinda lame, I salute thee Kojima for taking this step o7

    • MichaelPayneV

      Also Anyone who cries about the story being too dark, should see the Cardboard Box!

    • MrVux007

      hey different people have different view on things…but im sure once people play the game,there number of whining will go down drastically 🙂

      • Yea but what were they expecting? This is a game about revenge and not about finding Nemo.

        • MrVux007

          *finding Nemo* hahahahahahahha

  • WhatTheJuicay

    Does the “english” kojima always use text speak? “ur”, “u”, “thou”

    Anyway, kojima must think his fans are really wishy washy. Last year they were complaining that there’s too much humor when he showed the horse shutting on command and the enhanced box.

    With that said, I have never seen anyone say mgsv looks too dark. People saying it looks too funny, yea I’ve seen that.

    • Maybe Japanese fans sent him those responses.

      To answer your first question: yes, probably to save space. His PA Ayako is behind the English Kojima account btw.

  • Ryan Yoder

    I hope this game makes me question everything I ever thought I knew about life.

    • MichaelPayneV

      You mean like MGS3 did to me? I’m serious, MGS3 changed me as a human, that’s how much i LOVE IT!

      • Gatsu

        Me too bro, me too :).

        • MichaelPayneV

          I was 11/12, then i changed and never saw Villain V Hero the same, never saw them as pure evil or perfect good man, MGS3 made me able to read between the lines.

          EX: Before MGS3: Batman Hero, Joker Bad.
          After MGS3: Batman is a Vigilante with a Superiority Complex, tormented by the death of his parents, can’t get over it at all, he is Crazy, while Joker seems Psycho Killer, but he actually makes A LOT more sense than Batman does, at least Joker is aware that he is “Tormented by Phantoms” and sees the good part in everything, while Batman is in complete denial of his mental state, and he thinks he is the Hero, but he actually does it because he likes how it feels, is what he needs in order to not kill himself, not for the City, but for himself to feel important!

          • Ryan Yoder

            Right on. Some of what I got out of MGS3 lead me to think about how sometimes we’re responsible for creating our own enemies. The conclusion is that sometimes we are our own worst enemy.

          • MichaelPayneV

            And how people we remember as murderers could be the real Heroes.

            It’s mostly point of view that makes stuff right or wrong. (Just think on that, it will blow your mind! Especially after a couple tokes, lol!)
            Check this out:
            For years I believed Solid Snake was the good guy, with Big Boss being the ultimate villian.
            Now the way I see it is BB was always off just trying to mind his own business and create a home for forgotten soldiers. SS was being used as Zero’s puppet to try and destroy BB for years, who is the bad guy now? While ultimately I would say it’s Zero, which is pretty much exactly how wars are fought today,
            (Soldiers are used for whatever agenda their leader wants fulfilled. The soldiers on both sides think the are the good guys fighting for honor and rightness. The actuality is the soldiers are probably fighting for some bullshit gain on their countries behalf.
            It’s why I don’t view most soldiers of whoever our country is fighting as a true enemy.
            They were most likely drafted and are piss scared, just want to go home, and don’t know why they’re fighting.)

    • decoyF0XX

      MGS 2 did this for me!! That third act had me questioning my whole existence and reality, dammit Kojima.

      • gerber

        I hated MGS2 as a kid, but after I’ve grown up and revisited the game, I was mind blown. It really does make you think seriously about your place in this world, purpose, values, and bigger picture of this experience called life.

        • decoyF0XX

          I played it being a bit older, already knowing it was Raiden in the game, so sadly I didn’t feel all the rage you guys felt haha. Apart from that anyway, Kojima stil found ways to manipulate us the players in so many ways during the game itself, the whole thing was a mindfuck.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Wait a minute, in the Final build of TPP, Ocelot wears sunglasses in the “Rescue Kaz” Mission?
    If yes, that is nice!

    • MrVux007

      yep its seems that way….the photo inside the helicopter in the recent gameplay vid,shows him with sunglasses during the *Let the legend come back to life* part

    • Maybe they are goggles to protect his eyes from the sand, like Snake is wearing on the artwork.

      • J_muse72

        I wonder how the googles actually work in the game, when I was watching the E3 2015 demo and the sandstorm hit, the entire time I was wondering if Big Boss would automaticallly put them on or if you have to equip them separately,he never did however as Jackie proceeded to use the Phantom Cigar.

        • MeLand127

          I was hoping for that too ;( Seeing Bigboss with goggles would be cool..

        • WhatTheJuicay

          Since MGS4/MGO2 I always wished that they would have gear that resists certain elements.. for instance, a gas mask that makes you immune to smoke so it doesnt stop you in your tracks while you cough. Or goggles that help you see better through smoke/sand/snow/flash bangs.. same as helmets having bullet resistant purposes.

          Rockstar beat them to it with Max Payne 3.. every gear had a purpose. It looks like this might finally be the case in MGSV but i dont think it will be as 100% in depth as Max Payne 3. As far as the goggles and gas mask go at least.

          • MeLand127

            For fashion purpose?? :/ (to wear it of course)

      • Ozzman

        No, it’s sunglassess

      • Ozzman

        Kaz glassess changed in final build, in the chopper to way back home with BB Kaz glassess is changed, the new one got the MGSV logo

    • Gatsu

      Nice :), how did I miss that :O.

    • kirtanloorii

      Kojima gonna Kojima.

  • Braden Gunn

    “Hey Kojima, you’re game about good men turning into demons and seeking revenge is too dark for my fragile little mind.”

    So your telling me that people would rather see Snake turn to the Darkside because Zero stole his last cookie, over a tale that blurs the lines between good and bad, and how one bad event is all it can take for good men to cross that line.

    • MichaelPayneV

      That would actually be more subtle, and more based on principles.

  • MrVux007
    • MichaelPayneV

      Well looks like once again i got so hyped that i have to replay a Ground Zeroes Side-Op, i’m thinking between “Anti Air” or “Assassinate”

  • MichaelPayneV

    I have a theory that can only be proven by someone good at Photoshop…and i suck at it, so if anyone on here is good enough and won’t call me out for the lazy SOB that i am, i thank you (Hey, at least i’m honest)
    Now, could the “Les Enfants Terrible” actually be about combining the Best 2 Soldiers to make 2 PERFECT Soldiers?

    • How do you mean? The goal of LET was to use Big Boss’s ‘soldier genes’ to make a clone that would inhabit these qualities.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, it also seems that Solid was more Intelligent and more of a HERO than Big Boss, just like Quiet is!

        If Quiet wasn’t a HERO, wouldn’t she have killed miller when she was about to get killed by his orders? Just like The Boss, she was 100% vulnerable in that moment, doesn’t that fit with some decisions Solid took?

        • Well we have only seen some small fragments from TPP so we can’t really say. But do you mean that Quiet was used in some way during Big Boss’ cloning? Keep in mind that it already happened 12 years ago during the events of TPP, so Quiet would still have been very young.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, that’s what i’m saying, but if you remember the GZ Credits it said that in 86 LOT was abandoned, which leads me to believe that in 1984 Skull Face continued the Project, and used it to manipulate Big Boss!

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            In metal gear solid, liquid Snake mention the government created 8 clones

          • MrVux007

            and 6 of them where failed clones….if i remember right?

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m sorry, but didn’t MGS3 thought you something, that Official History may not be real History?

            Take The Boss for example, she is remembered as a Terrorist, yet “She was a TRUE, Patriot!”

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Because that was her mission MichealPayneV, the boss knew full well what she would become after completing her mission. It did not matter to her weather or not that she would be regarded as a hero or a terrorist in the worlds eye, all that matter was her mission, her duty to her country( ow shit I’m about to start cry) her loyalty and endurance until the end. And in metal gear solid 4 sons of the patriot, big boss finally realized that before he passed away in front of snake. After all those years trying to find out the boss meaning and goals, big boss finally understand his mentor, and that’s what is all about, not what you’re being told by your government what is true and false, or what you’re regarded as, but what you truly believe in your heart.( damn it boss look what you did……..now I can’t stop crying……..sniff sniff).

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            No the 6 clones weren’t fail experiments it was the 30 clone baby’s that was the fail experiments, they was created before the 8 clone baby’s experiment. Liquid snake mention this to solid snake when he was talking about the genome soldiers which where there brothers & sister’s to. It all make since to me because eve mention to snake also, that her and two other women took part in the cloning experiment to be surrogate mothers of the clone baby’s.

          • MichaelPayneV

            In Metal Gear Solid we know only the official Back story, the one made by the Patriots.

            Haven’t you learned everything from The Boss Story, she is remembered vs what she actually did, how the History is written in this universe vs how the real events actually happened?

            If Something, MGS3 thought me that i should not believe the Official History, including Metal Gear Official History!

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            I respect your theory on that subject, but my heart & guts are telling me what liquid and eve mention are true.

          • MichaelPayneV

            EVA could be Lying, she was a spy after all, and Liquid could have been told a Lie, that he then passed to Solid, thinking it was True, think about that!

            Skull Face seems way to important to not be involved in the LOT Project, especially considering that it has been abandoned in 1986, so Skull Face must have continued it, and maybe even Re-imagine it, showing that he is better than Zero, and that he can manipulate Big Boss!

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Bro I agree on everything you’re saying right now and you might also be right with your theory, but I can’t denie also that there was no one other than major zero himself who was so obsessed over big boss. Major zero idolize big boss, he believed that the world needed someone like big boss constantly in it. Zero needed someone like big boss to guide the next generation of the world into the future, zero didn’t want big boss dreams and ideas to disappear into the history books where men will eventually forget over time. Zero felted like that if the world would lose a strong present like big boss, it would fall back into global warfare. I believe zero felt like if he could keep big boss in this world to guide it to a better future, he would be doing the boss will. Which is the reason why I believe everything Eve and liquid said, tho again your theory might be right MichealPayneV.

          • Cipher

            Actually the “Les Enfant Terrible” project was abandoned in 1976 not 86 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Oh, so could have Skull Face put BB in coma, to have him wake up when SS and LS are 8 years old?

          • Cipher

            Skull Face wanted to kill BB once and for all not just put him in a coma .

            one interesting thing is, in PW tabe “the call” Zero confirmed to Kaz that there were 2 children already born! … While in MGS 1 Liquid said they were cloned when Big Boss was in a coma !!
            Kojima said there is an explanation to all this in the game.

          • This was a translation error in the English script. In the Japanese version, Liquid doesn’t say Big Boss was in a coma when he was cloned, just that he was injured and sterile.

            http://thesnakesoup.org/myth-articles/myth-big-boss-was-in-a-coma-when-he-was-cloned/

          • Cipher

            thanks for the article
            I noticed it goes back to 2011 before we knew he would fall into a coma in the TPP
            So it could be a new plot

          • MichaelPayneV

            I don’t think he wanted to kill Big Boss, remember what was 1 of Paz terms for revealing Zero’s Location “This will save Big Boss…It way!” So Skull Face knew Big Boss won’t die, he knew Paz would wake up and Jump…it was all part of the plan!

            Also, Zero soldiers come to get Big Boss, while Mantis part of Skull Face Parasite Unit is there to stop Zero from getting Big Boss!

          • MichaelPayneV

            EDIT: And he also seems way to involved in Supernatural experiments and Human Anatomy to have nothing to do with “Les Enfants Terrible”

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            I see what’re saying, maybe something happened to skull face in the beginning of the phantom pain where he is constantly haunting big boss later on threw out the game. Or maybe it’s psycho mantis that’s causing big boss to hallucinate skull face no matter where he goes. Maybe psycho mantis is working for skull face( implanted by major zero as a double agent) which would explain how skull face can manipulate big boss.

          • MichaelPayneV

            EDIT: Hell, maybe Quiet is a Female Snake, the first unofficial try at cloning Big Boss!

        • MrVux007

          Solid was pretty much the same as Big Boss in intelligence,heroism and combat abilities…. the only real difference is of course,is that Solid isnt exactly human being like BB is… i dont see much of connection between Quiet and LET,and we need to actually play the game…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, Solid Acts more like a Deterrent, like an A.I. like a Weapon to Surpass Metal Gear……………wait what?

          • MrVux007

            🙂

        • MrVux007

          *If Quiet wasn’t a HERO, wouldn’t she have killed miller when she was about to get killed by his orders? Just like The Boss, she was 100% vulnerable in that moment, doesn’t that fit with some decisions Solid took?*i dont see how does that fit decisions that Solid took

          • MichaelPayneV

            Like letting himself captured by Sniper Woolf.

          • MrVux007

            but i still dont see the connection mate,Quiet just simply trusts BB …SS let himself captured cuz of other reasons

          • MichaelPayneV

            I still find Quiet really similar to Big Boss in both personality and looks, especially the facial structure, tell me they don’t look like each other, that they don’t have similar facial features and proportions, as if she is a Female Snake!

          • MrVux007

            cant rly tell mate….

          • MrVux007

            the only thin is see similar are the eyes,and lips ….sorry i really am trying here man 😀

          • So Stefanie Joosten looks like Snake? 😛

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            No he has a good point Nyxus, but instead of quiet looking like big boss, I think she looks alike like Eli. I’m thinking maybe Kojima model Eli after quiet looks, it kinda make since don’t you think. Hey Nxus remember in metal gear solid 4 sons of the patriot, where eve mention to snake that her and two other woman’s took part in the terrible children project, that they became the surrogate mothers of the clone baby’s. I Believe what MichealPayneV is saying might be true, quiet could be a clone of big boss, she’s at the right age of being born in the late 50’s where liquid snake also mention the pentagon started the terrible children project. I think this adds all up and make since to me, because the pentagon could’ve started the cloning project after the virtuous mission when big boss was in a coma for three days.

          • LET didn’t take place in the late fifties, but in 1972. You’ve probably got it mixed up with Liquid Snake’s quote in MGS2, when he says ‘Big Boss was in his late fifties when they created his copies.’ But this can’t be correct give Big Boss’s age, it seems like this was retconned way back with MGS3. This also means Quiet isn’t the right age to be a clone, she would be 12. Not to mention, a clone is a genetic copy so doesn’t that mean it would be impossible for the clone of a man to be a woman?

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Are you sure Nyxus!!!!?????, because in my copy of mgs2 liquid snake always stated the terrible children project started in the late 50’s. On my life Nyxus that what liquid said, and I know because I have played that game more than a 1000 times since 2002 when I was 14 years old. I’m not making this up Nyxus, in my copy of mgs2 on the ship inside the tank hanger, liquid always states that, maybe it could be the VR Training system in the game. I know raiden was under the VR training because of the neno machine in his body, but as for snake I don’t if it effected him during that time of the ship mission, because snake also has neno machine in his body as well. I don’t what to tell you Nyxus cause I’m kinda mind fuck right now after you mention that, I’ve could’ve sworn that what liquid said…………..wait ah minute………I am in the VR training system.

          • Are you sure? You can look up the script online, and this is what Liquid says:

            “Les enfants terribles… the terrible children. That’s what the project was called. It started in the 1970’s.”

            Or is there some other part you are talking about?

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            No that part you’re mentioning is from metal gear solid where snake and liquid are on the top of metal gear T Rex. But the part I am mentioning is from mgs2 on the ship inside the tank hanger where liquid takes over ocelots body. And what Kojima mention last year in an interview after ground zeroes release, he stated that the 9 years coma big boss was in might not be all true, once we the players get our hands on the phantom pain and see for ourselves. Which this means snake and liquid being born in 1972 might not be true neither, this adds up to what Eve mention to snake in mgs4. Eve told snake that her and two other women took part in the terrible children project, that they where the surrogate mothers of the clones of big boss. Which means quiet could be a clone of big boss as MichealPayneV stated earlier, who knows like you said Nyxus the pentagon could’ve had the scientist modify the fetus sex. Maybe the pentagon wanted to recreate the cobra unit threw big boss genes, which explains quiet abilities and the one who don’t exist abilities. Just like the boss who gave birth to the corba unit as she stated, the pentagon wanted to create a army of perfect soldiers just like the boss unit, and what better way to do that then to create from her beloved disciple, big boss. This could be a good theory, the government wanted a army of perfect soldiers from big boss and major zero wanted to make snake genes passed on to the next generation. Thanks Nyxus I’ll look into that mgs2 script that you mention.

        • No Place For Hayter

          “Solid was more Intelligent and more of a HERO than Big Boss”

          Lol, I’m going to go ahead and say Big Boss is more intelligent than Solid Snake, while Solid Snake is not stupid he has a long running history of being used without knowing it and most of the time ends up helping the bad guys before being forced to kill them. Big Boss however after Snake Eater, where in which he was used yes, but he sees that and immediately cuts ties with any of that and seeks to go against that, and so he forms the patriots with everyone, leaves and forms his own private army, has that destroyed and forms another one. Big Boss has a wider array of knowledge and how to use it, and he is always a huge part of the bigger picture, where as the best Solid Snake did was Philanthropy, which he dumped after MGS2.

          As far as who’s a bigger Hero, than yeah sure, Solid Snake died a hero, and Big Boss lived long enough to see himself become the villain. I believe that Big Boss was a greater Hero when he was still one than Solid Snake, but that doesn’t mean much when Big Boss becomes the villain. For all we know we could end up agreeing with everything Big Boss does in TPP and consider it very heroic despite it not being nice, this idea of course I highly doubt, lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Alright I’ll play. But first I’m going to let you explain the theory and its details so I don’t nitpick anything that you have already thought out. So dump it on me, lets see what we can do 🙂

      • Gatsu

        I’ll just stay outside of these crazy theories and grab some popcorn+enjoy XD.

    • No Place For Hayter

      “gameplay won’t be dark tho” That is of course unless we run around fighting and killing child soldiers, do not underestimate what can be done in actual gameplay, but of course killing in gameplay is optional.

  • J_muse72

    They are afraid it’s too dark…
    All I have to say is that’s life so too bad.This story is not only fictional,but also a very realistic portayal of what would happen to a legendary soldier(except for the supernatual stuff maybe). It’s not all “hero saves the day with smirk on his mouth”, no it’s about a man who feels so bad for what he did to his mentor and how she was a patriot that he moves on and lives on his own to ultimately for his own “Nation Without Borders” only for it to be destroyed and almost everyone of his men to be slaughtered. So yeah, you can’t expect a “cookie cutter” story here. You here people say “life sucks”, well that is exactly what is going on in Big Boss’ life, his life uterly sucks, and you get to play his role.

  • ddmaster

    It’s sad how either unintelligent or simply uninformed a lot of people are out there. BB Kojima-San has said himself on several occasions before that this game would delve deep into dark themes and ideas. It’s natural to assume bodily harm and/or mutilation maybe apart of those darker motifs. So people do not have the right to complain like this. Also his previous games, having been in the business for decades, nearly all of them include some form of torture scene in them. In a nutshell people should either chill out or get out, we have no room for wimps in Outer Heaven. *steps back in line*

    • No Place For Hayter

      I don’t understand why people complain to begin with, either you are willing to play the darker more mature game that Kojima is putting his heart and hard work into, or you aren’t willing to. Those who complain are either not going to play the game yet feel the need to complain about its content. or they think Kojima should make they game they want instead of the game he wants.

    Who has been complaining MGSV is too dark?
    I certainly don’t recall anyone on these boards saying so.
    I don’t think I have ever heard people say GTAV is a “Dark” game, and most of it’s violence is just senseless acts just for the hell of it. (Don’t get me wrong, I love me some GTA)
    With MGSV all the “Darkness” and violence serves to tell a meaningful story.
    Kojima didn’t just make MGSV violent and “Dark” because that’s the trend these days.
    He did it to rightfully portray Big Boss’s spiral into madness and revenge. (And other MGSV characters as well)
    So MGSV may be “Dark” , but it is being done correctly. I believe MGSV is going to be a Masterpiece for which future gamemakers will strive to achieve the same perfection that will be found in Hideo Kojima’s magnum opus MGSV.

    Afterall, filmakers such as Quentin Tarantino would be nowhere today if their films didn’t push the boundaries and taboo’s which made them a success.

    • Gatsu

      Not here, but just some posting on twitter for example. Some who don’t know MGS story etc. They should also check the gameplay demos before saying these things.
      Dark themes give lots of emotional moments which I love, Big Boss will always be a hero to me no matter what and it will be painful to see what happen to him in TPP ;D. But I’m ready for it!!!

      “I believe MGSV is going to be a Masterpiece for which future gamemakers
      will strive to achieve the same perfection that will be found in Hideo
      Kojima’s magnum opus MGSV.”

      Very well said, and I believe so too. Kojima always manage to make his games very special in many ways, aka ahead of their time. Even the camerawork in TPP cutscenes, it’s so beautiful and haven’t seen anything like that in other games. I think TPP will be very amazing masterpiece and unique game compared to many others. To be honest, it will be more than a game <3!

  • FMercenary

    INB4 Big Boss turns into a villain because: nanomachines.
    I’d loose my shit if that happened but I know it won’t, right guys? RIIIGHT?!?!

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      I think is because of psycho mantis the reason why big boss is losing control of himself and his thoughts.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah don’t worry it won’t happen, no excuses here, Kojima is building TPP very well in terms of both story and gameplay. Though do expect many different layers of psychological mind-bends.

    • Shalashaska

      It may. Nanos are everywhere. EVERYWHEREE.

  • Gatsu

    Hmm anyone got idea when TPP might be available for pre-order on Steam :(? I was hoping it appear shortly after E3. The release date is still “Coming soon”. I already got it pre-ordered as physical for console, but I really wanna buy it on Steam too and see it on the main store page ;O….

    There was some time ago info about it getting pre-load option, so it has to come before September 15.

    • RJRO

      Someone should tweet Ken he usually solve this kind of things.

      • Gatsu

        Maybe I will try tweet tomorrow, but gotta go sleep now :)… It could be that it just comes a bit closer to release date.

    That is why he included spotlights and lens flare.

  • Gray Lion

    Hey, guys! After so many weeks coming here every single day again and again I decided to join you 🙂
    As far as the “darker themes” go, MGS pretty much did it all by now… Torture, betrayal, rape, gratuitous violence… IMO the people who are now worried about the trailer and the darker themes it evokes and presents should really play the other MGS titles. For me, the most shocking scene was the torture of Solid Snake on MGS1. I was like 9 and my mind couldn´t even begin to comprehend that such things happened in a videogame, let alone in the real world… And the whole MGS4 was the worst for me. Watching a character I came to love and know go through all the shit he went through… He felt real, his pain felt real… I mean, shit, man… And Big Boss´ story is going in the same direction, so to speak… It seems Kojima really wants to make us feel for the character and with the character and he does that by unleashing holy hell and then some over the characters… Well, that´s my two cents.
    Greetings from Portugal!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome 🙂 glad to see more people jumping on board 🙂 if we keep this up we might pull all the lurkers into the comment section 🙂

      Agreed, people never called past MGS “dark” despite having various dark subjects, and thus nobody really thought about it, but with TPP the word “dark” is being thrown around so people take much more attention. That being said though TPP will be much darker than past MGS, or at least I hope so, lol.

      • Raven_Sorrow

        ^ the power of words 😉

      • Gray Lion

        Thank you, it is a pleasure to be here! 🙂
        I agree with you. I also think that most people are going apeshit over the darker themes that the trailer conveys mainly because there is not enough quirky MGS-style humour to counteract the darker tones in it, and I am glad for it. People are used to Meryl´s buttshots, to Psycho Mantis yelling “vibration is baaaack!”, to Snake pointing to his bandana and saying “Infinite Ammo!” with a smirk on his face, to Big Boss commenting on the taste of attack dogs and the like… Yes, this game will get more controversial and I hope to Kojima in heaven above that it does. But some people seem to forget that the series already got some pretty dark moments… And that is good, that is part of what makes the series so addicting and fantastic. For me, the latest in dark moments came at the end of Ground Zeroes, specifically when Big Boss is extracting Miller from Mother Base and he is shooting at the XOF corps and the soldier right next to him gets hit and slumps back on B.B.´s shoulder and B. B. looks at him and, for a brief moment, he can´t react… Shit, man, that hit me and hit me very hard. But MGS is more than that and to define a MGS title solely as “dark-themed” is a bit… I dunno, restrictive?, demeaning?. I mean no offense, of course 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Hey comrade, Welcome :D! It’s amazing to see more fans joining every day :).
      For me most shocking was MGS3 Volgin beating the crap outta Snake …it was just so shocking…couldn’t believe my eyes and was like nooOOOOO!

      • Gray Lion

        Thank you, it is great to be here with you guys! 🙂
        For me the worst part about the MGS3´s torture scene was actually when BB had his head covered with a black plastic bag. I mean, you knew Volgin was throwing punch after punch but you couldn´t see a thing. I dunno, I, getting on BB´s shoes, felt a hell lot more vunerable. I think that part was far worse on me; not being able to see the punches coming or see anything else. Plus, Volgin, being the sadist that he was, always seemed to me like a person very willing, able and capable of using rape as means of torture. And that, along with the remarks about BB´s body during that part (especially if you hadn´t suffered many injuries like I did the first time I played) made me very anxious and uncomfortable, to say the least :S

  • “MGSV being too dark…”

  • J_muse72

    Why most people love MGS: The compellingly confusing dark and sad story, and also the action stealth.
    What other people think MGS is: An action stealth game that is so overrated and do mind blowingly confusing.
    What Kojima thinks MGS is: Art.

            Since sinbad. lol your awesome.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Sinbad is the only good comedian out there who can keep a crowd laughing for hours straight without even using curse words in his material. That’s why I love key & peele because they barely use curse words in there scripts, and even if they do, key & peele make it seems hilarious ass hell. Now days some comedians use curse words threw there whole stand up thinking it’s funny to the crowd, when its actually not funny at all. The audience only laugh at those comedians jokes because they don’t want to make the person who telling the joke uncomfortable, and make him feel like his jokes aren’t funny. You have very few comedians out there who can make a whole crowd laugh for hours using curse words, but sometimes that can even grow doll on certain audience in the crowd. That’s why I love sinbad stand ups because he rarely uses them at all, but I am looking into this new comedian name pablo francesco he’s funny as hell, you should also check him out because he’s impressions of celebrities is out of this world.

          • WhatTheJuicay

            Lol have you ever been to a comedy show? Well you don’t have to, since even movies or tv shows display what goes on in thethe stand up comedy shows. The audience can be relentless and boo you off stage. They’re being nice if they don’t laugh. People pay upwards of $20 to get in a stand up venue, the audience doesnt owe comedians anything other than respect out of courtesy. Not forced laughs. Other than that, most comedy venues serve drinks. If someone’s not that funny, maybe it’s the drinks making the audience laugh.

  • Javier

    The complaining in september 2nd will be mgsv can be finished in 2 hours.
    Yes, yes, I know, we all are going to play it for hours. But watching the e3 main mission we know something like that could happen. Shoot some guy with a sniper rifle and run out of the mission area or call pequod. Two minutes and done.
    Maybe we have to do that once for the s rank. But the mgs haters will think the game is super short. Am I thinking too much?

    • J_muse72

      I don’t think in any way that this game can be deemed too short by anyone. The game is just toobmassive and reports say that you would have to spend at least 100 hrs to obtain 100% completion. So their arguments will become invalid.( I just thought of zero’s new voice while typing that last phrase.)

      • Javier

        100% will be a lot of hours, but I’m talking about main missions only.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      You have real concerns but yes, i think you are thinking too much.. and pessimistically XD try to be optimistic and relax a bit. We are all tense and worried and excited and nervous and going crazy in every direction from “crazy-balls theories” to “the game won’t be released” to “the world will end before i get to play this masterpiece”. Brother, i’m with you. I’m here for you. We WILL get through this 🙂

      • Javier

        thanks bro

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, lol, don’t think so much. Very few times have I seen complaints about a game being too short, and every time those complaints are very accurate. So we won’t be having people complain about the speed of TPP, for a lot of reasons. Due to the nature of TPP itself it will take a long time to finish, of one were to ignore all the collecting and building an side ops available they would still take forever to finish the game due to how its progression will be tied into you base and the missions you do, there will be missions you can’t finish because you don’t have the right equipment, or don’t have the people with the right skills. There could aslo be portions of the story locked until you meet a certain overall goal such as building your own metal gear. TPP will be a lot like PW in this regard to size and how fast you can finish it. TPP is also about huge open landscapes with planning taking a massive role, so things take a long time. The only way someone could speed run the story is if they have already unlocked everything and knows a strategy for every mission, and can adept to to things on the fly; but even if a person did this it would take a while because of the amount of missions for the story. Once you have unlocked everything (which in itself is technically part of the story) it would be possible to complete the story within the single digit of hours. But that would only be the story itself (which you are technically skipping half of due to the game being tied so heavily into the game mechanics), and it would only be possible when you already have 100% everything.

      Don’t worry it will be impossible to call TPP short is it will be the largest MSG game and one of the largest games I will ever play.

      • Javier

        I was just thinking in main missions and mother bose contruction with microtransactions.

        Complete the 100% of the game is going to be long because you have to play a lot of times every missions. The first time I finish the mission ground zeroes it was like 47 minutes, but the 100% of the game it was 30 hours. The second time I did 100% in another console it was 10 hours. The non fan people won’t go for 100%.
        Anyway, that percentage is a little false, because in gz you can finish all the missions in normal and have “14%” and if you find a tape it gave you 1% or 2%.

    • Tong Ninja

      None of us haven’t even played the game yet haha. We don’t know for certain. Kojima also said there will be some missions that will be 6 hours long. I imagine the long missions will require multiple objectives to complete it. Some side ops will be harder than the main missions … 🙂

      Kojima stated that he is afraid people might not even finish the game because of all the content in the game. There will be a variety of missions like assassination, rescue, destroy, infiltrate, acquire special weapons, animal hunting, mother base construction, etc.

      The wait for the game being released is causing you to over think too much. XD

      • Javier

        The waiting is causing me a lot of things.

      Isnt there all sorts of crazy sh*t in Games of Thrones ? This.. Seriously horrible kinda sh**
      Hate the double standards. Its not like the game is going into the hands of kids. There’s a rating board for a reason 😛

    • No Place For Hayter

      That is why Kojima is trying to make the GAMING INDUSTRY as mature and acceptable as the other forms of media. TPP was also made with that specific idea in mind 🙂 Kojima knows he is doing something people will complain and be surprised by, but he is doing it because it is necessary, anybody wants to expand upon the art form of making games. Without people like Kojima gaming as an industry would no grow up in the eye of the public and they would always have double standards.
      In other words, I agree, and Kojima is awesome, lol.

        Ok.

    • FoxTamerMGO

      There are people at the moment that don’t have food on their tables, they lose their family members (parents/siblings) because of hunger. Moms sacrifice their lives for their children, they probably haven’t eaten for days. And you’re complaining about this SHIT? Don’t you dare talk about pain and struggle.

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        It’s a Keanu reeves joke you fucking idiot, take yo little stupid ass somewhere else with that dumb shit boy. This is a site where metal gear fans can come and enjoy themselves, getting to know one another, I been on this site almost for two years now and I never had negative conversation with any metal gear fan until now. So if you do have an attitude with me kid you better take that shit somewhere else because I’m the right one to fuck with, not the wrong one but the right one, so try me.

        • FoxTamerMGO

          Yep, you’re a strong boy.. you fuck with anybody, Bravo. And that sounded gay btw. Seems you can’t take criticism.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            WHAT THA FUCK IS CRITICISM!!!!??????.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            This is why people complain about MGSV being dark, they can’t take the darkness because it’s negative. They want a happy/positive scenario. The same is with you, when i gave you a negative comment, you didn’t welcome it. You only want the positive ones. My intentions wasn’t to screw with you, sorry xD.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            ( damn it he has a very good point about that……I can’t take away his props)….well kid….all I have to say is

          • No Place For Hayter

            Ah, but it is not about what is positive or negative, it is what the intent and point of a comment, a negative comment can have good points and good criticism, or it can simply be negative for no good reason and that is the kind of thing nobody likes and nobody should invite.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            AAAAAHHHHH DID I EVER TELL YOU I LOVE YOU.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            You can’t know for sure the intention of the opposite side, that’s why it’s called intentions, it belongs to the opposite side. And whether the opposite side have a good point or not is subjective.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Not entirely subjective, if I said “FAGGOT!”, if think we would both be in agreement that that has no point. It does not matter how subjective you want to be about it, some times there is no point worth taking and thus it should not be given or taken.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            It didn’t serve to bring down others, i told him it wasn’t intentional. Just to prove a point that some people can’t accept negativity.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah. I’m focusing to much on one thing instead of just accepting the point you are making. Sorry for jumping on everything.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Let me introduce you to the concept of Fallacy of relative privation

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_relative_privation

        And yeah it’s a joke.

        • Bigbossmsf1974

          THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING TO MY RESCUE.

        • FoxTamerMGO

          Well, let’s compare the two. You have a bigger problem that no one cares about, and a smaller one. And you only care about the smaller one. The bigger problem should have the priority, i’m not saying you should discard the small problem. People should care about bigger problems MORE. that’s it.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Only to an extent, are starving children on the other side of the globe more important than my bills? no they don’t as harsh as that sounds.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            This entire topic is about Kojima responding to comments about MGSV being dark, what do kojima getting fired of konami got to do with it? That’s if you really wanna stick with the subject at hands.

          • No Place For Hayter

            That was in general. I also mentioned that you could if you really wanted to discus such things start your own off topic comment. What was wrong is jumping on what he said with a topic that had nothing to do with what he said, you responded to his comment, and thus it is to be important or relevant to his comment. We are pretty open here with what we discus (as I’m sure you know) but you have to stay on topic of the comment you are responding to at least.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            Well, this discussion would have ended if you didn’t step in, i already apologized to the man hours ago. And i would apologize to you too for taking a bit of your time. Sorry. :”)

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, crap, sorry for dragging and dragging, I can get way to nitpicky sometimes, my own fault for feeling the need to throw points back and forth, sorry.

          • FoxTamerMGO

    Whoever the hell is complaining about MGS V: TPP being too dark was more than likely, not an MGS fan to begin with. They act as though MGS 1-4 were comedic affairs when they were thematically dense with mature and dark themes. I’m honestly tired of this new generation of people who want to be offended just to stir up a head line.

  • Preston M Simpson

    If you think that was seriously too dark, you need to see the events that happened to Big Boss’s sons. What the origin Snake does has nothing on what happened to his children. He chose his fate, they were screwed from the beginning. That makes the Solid Snake chronicles much darker than anything Big Boss did.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, funny how to most people the dark side of MGS does not exist, lol. But TPP will indeed be much darker on many different levels, instead of just the one deep philosophical dark level that Liquid and Solid had.

      Welcome 🙂

  • Fancymole

    Shame that some people can’t see this game as a masterpiece and interpret it as “too dark”.

  • nah i don’t mind “too dark” at all, in fact, bring it in, if a game can become overwhelming with his tone, it’s good after all,it makes you feel something, and im all for that, like any good movie would too, that’s exaclty my cup of tea.

    though this being Metal Gear of course i would miss the silly stuff, but i could live with it if it was for the greater (narrative) good

    Not quite sure that’s what they meant by dark Kojima-san…. I assume they were referring to lighting issues. The main themes are Race and Revenge… I don’t think there’s someone who gets friendly revenge…

    Hey @Nyxus:disqus, some 1 week old News,. but still news, as it wasn’t posted here, so here is the link if you want to make an article about it!
    Looks like The Phantom Pain PC version will have even more Nvidia features then Ground Zeroes, they didn’t go in to detail yet, but they said that they will do it later this year!

    http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/nvidia-partners-with-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain

    Here is hope for PhysX to MGSV, i’ll pray to GOD, i mean Kojima that PhysX will be 1 of the additions to The Phantom Pain!

  • Tong Ninja

    Some MORE new information about MGSV: TPP. This was based from the previews before E3. 🙂

    Don’t know if it has STORY BASED SPOILERS (but be wary) but if you want to watch it, here is the link! 😀

    • Golgari

      Some story based spoilers but if you read everything at Metal Gerar Informer and watch all the trailers, it won’t reveal much.

      Metal Gear Community is the strongest gaming community. One game and preview summary for 1 hour and 28 minutes. Amazing.

      • Tong Ninja

        There was some new information I didn’t know about. Yong did spoil (minor) one particular mission in Africa in his preview summary. But I won’t talk about it here.

    • Leviathan

      First of all hello guys =)
      im new here and i follow the discussions here since 2 years so …. i knew much about this site 😀

      And a big THX to Nyxus for all news and answers to all comments =)

      now to my comment: I think the new IDroid version of the E3 Gamplay is not that good like the IDroid of the Gameplay Demos of the E3 last year … is it Still 3D ? can u rotation it with the PS4 controller ? or did it get an massive visual downgrade?

      sorry for my english its not the best ^^

      • Gatsu

        Heyyy welcome :D, wow new comrades just keep coming all the time. Our boss Nyxus is busy fultoning ;). I used to be a lurker too, until I realized that need to start commenting lol.

        I hope you enjoy chatting with us =).

        About the iDroid question, well I’m not sure if can still rotate it. I believe we can. But they didn’t rotate it in the new gameplay demo from E3, if I remember correctly. Also I understand your English well ^-^.

      • Tong Ninja

        Yes the iDroid should still be 3D and you can rotate it with PS4 controller. 🙂

        And welcome! 😀 So many lurkers on this site haha

      • No Place For Hayter

        Welcome 🙂 glad you decided to join us in the pits of the comments 🙂

        You can probably still rotate it, but it wasn’t being shown off so we didn’t see it, though it is also possible that important menus like pulling out the IDroid in the helicopter are unmovable, but when you pull it out during gameplay you can still move it. But yeah it is still 3D but when and if you can move if I don’t know, some menus might not be movable and it is possible that there is an option to turn the moveable menu off.

    • Gatsu

      Hmmm too long video and there are some spoilers so didn’t watch all. I watched some of it though and I probably know most of the info. Because I’ve watched all trailers and the demos, read previews etc. All I need now is my sweet TPP (and that last alternative demo of E3).

      Anyway, was great video thanks :), just as I’d expect from Yong.

      • Tong Ninja

        It contained some new information. 🙂 But Nyxus can summarise all the new information haha.
        Kojima is currently Japanese dubbing (using Kaz’s Japanese Voice Actor) the alternative demo of E3. It should be out this week. 😀

    • Raymondius

      Woah, you said “some”, boy, you said “some”?? More just like EVERY BIT. xD

      This is the Yong I rike. 😀

    • Shalashaska

      wait.. did they remove the customization aspect of mother base.. at first they said that it will all look different and you’ll get to customize where stuff goes .. like when they first showed the MB, they said how the player knew around his unique base… did they scrap the idea ? 🙁

      • Tong Ninja

        You can customise only the color scheme and logo for Motherbase. Only the Forward Operating Base, you can customise freely.

        Not sure about the microtransactions …

        I think they mean the save file for Ground Zeroes. So no internet connection required. I’m sure they will clarify on how to do all of this closer to release date. 🙂

  • 4energyplaylist .

    Too Dark!!! Come on!! What idiots said that? I WANT this game be very, very dark. Darker mean BETTER, more emotional. And that means BEST GAME EVER.

    From Yong’s preview summary it was confirmed that the opening credits will contain the names of all the characters that will be present in each specific mission. Some of the previewers did not like this as it ruined the surprise haha.

    • Gatsu

      Well if it was confirmed, I don’t really mind it. The game will surely have plenty of surprising+jaw-dropping moments despite that. I just want to play the darn masterpiece.

      I’m ready experience the story and gameplay already, KojimaaaaaaaAAAA!

    • SNKtheStampede

      I’ve already expressed my concern about the spoilerous aspect of credits. For me though the spoiler taste in mgs started with PW and as a consequence of a big turn in the game design, that is the missions structure. You know, having the little briefing on the objective before each mission, choosing specific equipment, etc. gave me a new, different feeling, from adaptive infiltration to programmed operations. “Tactical Espionage Operations” huge change… Non the less Ioved peace walker and played the hell out of it first on psp than on ps3.

        I don’t mind it either, but other people might not haha.

  • Chem

    after watching the great preview analysis of Yong, i’m thinking about make a binnacle or a journal in a blog or something after TPP release, ir order to write and share with you guys my daily progress in the game (omitting spoilers) , i’m sure that the game is going to be huge and surely is going to be a different experience for each player. I will only be able to play 5 to 6 hours per day because of my work, so i think that this is gonna be a good way to calm down my MGSV need till i reach home haha, what do you think? is a good idea or i should just scrap that out?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Depends on how much you would enjoy it. If you would enjoy it I see no reason why not to do it. But I wouldn’t do it solely for entertainment of others as that can drag on you if you aren’t interested in it yourself.

      Though a decent amount of people will go AWOL from this website when TPP releases until they finish the game (me included, I’m going to have to leave the whole internet, lol).

      • Chem

        hahaha yeah if i could i probably go, i just wanna play TPP all day but i can’t, also i don’t wanna ruin the story for me during those days either, surely there’ll be major spoilers around,

        During MGS4 release days i was only available to play on weekends and it was a torture!.

        Anyway, i think that i willl stick to my idea, so i let you guys know to check it out if you are interested.

        Thanks bro!

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      No I think you should stick to this idea of yours Chem, I think is a pretty good one.

      • Chem

        thanks bro! i appreciate your coment, i’ll stick with it.

        • Bigbossmsf1974

          No problem buddy anytime, I really like the ldea that you want to take your time and invest in the phantom pain. It’s almost like you will be telling a story from a journalist standpoint, as a matter of fact bro after you finished getting all your documents down from what you experience in the phantom pain. Create a YouTube channel dedicated to the phantom pain, and make a walkthrough of the game while commentary from a journalist standpoint, making the viewers feel like you was out there on the battlefield with big boss. I think this really suits you Chem, thank you for sharing your ideas with us and I hope and pray big things come from them,( Salutes at Chem) i wish you well comrade chem.

          • Chem

            thanks a lot for your comment and advice,you just gave me some great ideas that i’ll have in mind in the future, i’m glad and appreciate your feedback, so i hope to share my future projects with you guys

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            No problem anytime chem, we who’re msf/diamond dogs fully support you and have your back. So keep your head up and stay strong soldier, because your dreams and goals are closer then you realize, v for kojima……..V FOR VIC BOSS.

  • papershards

    so i was playing mgs 3 for the 100th time and noticed something is Quite Eva ?????? during the cut-scene where Volgin electrocutes Tatyana/Eva Her pantyhose get lots of holes in them from the electricity it looks like Quiets pantyhose in mgs5 is this just a Easter egg what do you think!!!

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      That’s a really stupid reason for thinking that without trying to troll someone. I expect something better from someone who has played an MGS game for the 100th time.

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        No he has a good point Dr. miles Manners, instead of Eva being quiet, maybe quiet is Eva daughter. Who knows what Eva did threw out her life dealing with different government agencies, we do know that she took part in the terrible children project the pentagon created as a surrogate mother for snake and liquid. Eva also was part of the patriots agencies because she wanted to carry on the boss will, but after seeing major zero being so obsessed about the boss dreams and goals, trying to create a perfect army of soldiers from big boss genes, she abandoned the patriots along with ocelot. We also know that Eva teamed up with ocelot to take down the patriots in order to stop zero from taking over the world. Maybe after eva gave birth to snake and liquid, when she joined up with the patriots, maybe she took part in zero other experiments. From mgs4 zero wanted an perfect army of soldiers who would resemble the cobra unit. Maybe Eva could’ve been the surrogate mother of quiet during those experiments. I know we all can agree on, quiet is from the experiments major zero was conducting to create his perfect army, quiet abilities resemble to much of the cobra units abilities. I think papershards theory is pretty good on point.

        • Dr. Miles Manners

          I hope this is not what we have to expect from future, Kojima-less MGS titles.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Yeah I guess.

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      I can see what you’re getting at papershards, it is not impossible for it to an Easter egg. Maybe quiet is eva daughter, who knows it could be possible, maybe eva continue in the experiments the pentagon was doing in creating a perfect army.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I always thought that it was simply the same cause for both tearing. Meaning Quiet gets electrocuted or something, she should really replace them though, lol.

      • Mr.Pony

        she gets tortured by Ocelot but she also seems to be tortured by Russian soldiers (drowned), my guess would be the same as yours.

    • Javier

      If you shoot a guard in mgs1 he has blood. In mgs4 if you shoot a guard it has blood too. Is the same guard?

  • Javier

    Do you know if we are going to be able to play the hospital scene for many times after finish it?

    • Mauricio Acosta

      Actually, if you look closely at the 40 minute gameplay video, you will see mission one named ????? But the icon is a building with a plus sign that you would normally identify a hospital with. So it looks like you actually can replay it.

  • ObsessedGeorge
    • PrinceHeir

      Yeah i don’t know why he’s even trying to insult Kojima when without MGS, no one would even know him at all in the industry.

      The salt is real.

      Oh and don’t worry, Konami will be using COMPLETELY new cast for all characters. There will be a different voice director, new team, and new engine for the future Metal Gear games. So don’t expect anyone else coming back unless Konami had a change of plans.

      • Golgari

        I’m not sure about the new engine. New engine takes time to develop, and use some serious resources. Fox Engine is really good as it is right now + it is Next-Gen Ready, and works on every platform like a charm so, if Konami is planning to milk Metal Gear in the near future, they will absolutely use Fox Engine until it dies completely.

        Maybe they will choose Hayter in the end for Snake… Because some fans or gamers want him back. Konami will do everything to milk the franchise unless they had a change of plans, as you said.

        They may take him back considering how many fans would/could buy it for their returning voice. You know. Milk milk milk it.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          I’m with you. I love Hayter and he will always be Snake to me (and i admit im still butthurt with the decision of him being passed over for Venon even though i’m sure Kojima’s going to have a solid reason for it game wise) but he won’t be enough reason for me to pickup a non-Kojima MGS…

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Hayter is heartbroken, understandably. (But in my hopeful mind, too heartbroken, suspiciously too heartbroken. I know its a looooong shot but until the game comes out and we’ll now for sure, i keep hoping this is a ploy and hayter will be in the game. [Stupid brain! Accept it dammit!!!]) XD

    • Shalashaska

      There will be no more MG worth playing once Kojima is gone.
      I love Hayter.. but that is the truth. Unfortunate truth.
      But I feel for the guy, Snake is his thing.. he has been defined as Snake. Once the masses define you as one character then it’s hard to get out of it. Kinda of like Harrison Ford and how you remember him for Indiana jones.
      Or Keanu Reeves and how you remember him from The Matrix or How you remember Tom cruise from The mission impossible series… I mean.. these guys are good but people rarely want to see the, as different characters so they die out despite having so much to give.

      Damn I wish this Hayter/Sutherland debacle would be put to rest, but then it wouldn’t be the interwebs now would ‘er? Sad thing is, even if future so-called “Metal Gear” titles had Hayter returning, I wouldn’t buy it, as Konami’s going on my blacklist after MGSV.

      Hell I’m now only 99.573125% positive I want this game now because of Konami’s microtransaction scheming. =(

      • Raven_Sorrow

        There is no scheming. I agree with the micro-transactions. I’ll explain them to you. Have you ever played Assasins Creed 4 Black Flag? There is a game component that requires waiting periods, like sending ships on a mission and wait for it to return to reap the rewards and they have the micro-transactions. In MetalGear case (using PW as reference) i assume it will have the side ops were you send soldiers to the field and you’ll have the R&D development times like PW. The micro-transactions are just payable time savers. They don’t make any difference in the game except they reduce these waiting times. These are for players who don´t have the time to invest in a game because work and family or etc. I agree cuz they give a chance to fans who have no time to fully enjoy the game. So you can have 100% you want the game 😉

        • korruption

          I think it’s worth mentioning that very rarely are my posts meant to be taken totally seriously and/or literally. I know what microtransactions are, and what’s known so far as to where to expect them. I’m not trying to be an ass of course, I’m just saying I already know. So don’t take that the wrong way. =]

          As for those who may be purchasing this game without having done their research on this game and what to expect, hooo damn are they in for a mindfuck (moreso than us)! XD

          • Raven_Sorrow

            XD don’t worry 😉 and you don’t sound like an ass don´t say that! i was just trying to up your percentage 🙂 About the mindfuck that’s true but i still think MGS2 will be hard to beat on that field (storywise of course) XDD

          • korruption

            Considering this is by far his most ambitious project, the final MGS game, and his final game at all for Konami, I think he’ll go as all-out as possible.

            I’m sure he’ll somehow trump MGS2’s insanity. Hell I’m banking on it. O_O;

      • Tong Ninja

        XD I know right! It’s been going on for the last 2.5 years ….
        Even after the game is released, there will be massive debates and voice delivery analysis comparisons between the two actors.

        I enjoy both Hayter and Sutherland’s performances. But best to ignore the internet (except for this site haha).

    • MichaelPayneV

      Not cool David, not cool.

  • PrinceHeir

    I always love darker themes. Zeta Gundam is one of my top Gundam Series ever due to the high amount of body count in the series. It’s like every episode there’s someone going to die unexpectedly.

    Can’t wait for MGSV 🙂

  • Jake Barnes

    Off topic, but does anyone know where to find a GIF of Quiet lighting up Snake’s cigar with a bullet?

  • PrinceHeir
  • Python Selkan new video! About time, dude.
    I don’t know if someone already posted it, sorry in that case.

    I didn’t watch yet.

    I always enjoy his videos, even if the theories he tells are out of the box or anything. This helps to calm my ‘anxiety’ (lol) to play MGSV while we await.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • MichaelPayneV

      What the, Godgzilla, how the hell did Godzilla has anything to do with Metal Gear?

      PS: I don’t like his theories, but Python did discovered “Words to control the subconscious” like 2 years ago, that makes me question that his theories may indeed turn our true!

      • I loved the logic in this video. The “good and the evil” being Skullface and Ishmael inside of him.

        I only have one doubt, if this is true, how can we see Big Boss and Gray Fox as different persons in MG1 or MG2 (i never played those so i don’t know in which both show up)

        But Phyton’s videos are very interesting to watch, that’s for sure, this guy see little details that my gf and i sometimes didn’t notice about. So, as entertainment, it works 🙂

        Have a nice day, mate 🙂

    • Javier

      He says a lot of the stup*d theories I have read here. The only new thing is godzilla chasing snake, lol.

      • What intrigues me, is how you prefer to see just the Godzilla joke from the video, avoiding the most important and interesting part of the video, don’t you want to open your eyes? 😉
        Yes, lol, indeed.

    • Shalashaska

      hehe anythings gold while waiting.. bring it on. and honestly though..i hope his theories arent true bout gray fox.. all the others are cool.. would hate peole nagging the poor guyif they arent true though..

  • Edward Wokhands

    Here we fucking go. How can it be too dark? We’ve seen a tiny fraction of the game. We’ve also seen horses shitting and cars spinning out on that shit. We’ve seen goats on balloons flying into the sky as they scream with fear/joy. MGS 4 was dark conceptually, what about that 2nd chapter where at the start of the level there is a row of people waiting to be executed? You can sit and watch them all get killed slowly. Anyone who has completed that game knows it’s dark. Oh, how about 3, Snake getting his eye poked out? A female spy who is being abused? A colonel who walks around grabbing random men’s dicks? It’s presented in a light-ish way but overall it’s a really dark game.

    This just takes it a little further. It’s a realistic portrayal of everything we’ve seen in previous games. Think of the stuff from the other games, if it happened in real life it would be fucking terrifying. By the way Big Boss will still be able to walk around in a box and put various pictures on it. He’ll be able to walk around with a DOG THAT WEARS AN EYE PATCH.

    This has really angered me and part of it is concern. I don’t like it when people start criticizing artists as amazing as Kojima because he might start to reconsider things. What the hell would people prefer? This looks like it could be the best game of all time.

    We’ve seen the dark part of the game in the trailers. The game will be HUGE. Saying this is too dark is like watching the footage of the newest open world Zelda and saying “IT WON’T HAVE DUNGEONS!!!” Just because we haven’t seen certain parts of the game doesn’t mean they don’t EXIST. Holy crap sometimes I really dislike gamers.

  • Santtu Söderholm

    The darker (as in mature), the better in my opinion.

  • BigBossFOX

    That’s so cool, I want it!!!! 😉

  • WaterFaster2012

    I want the story to be sooo dark, it has shades of blue in it!
