Troy Baker talks about Ocelot, Hideo Kojima and Kiefer Sutherland

During a panel at Indy PopCon 2015, Troy Baker, who plays Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, talked a bit about his role as Ocelot, about Hideo Kojima and about Kiefer Sutherland.

Talking about the impact Kojima has had on the industry, he said: “Because Kojima decided to make Metal Gear, so many other people have decided to make games. […] I don’t know what’s going on at Konami, but I love Kojima. And I love him as a dude, I respect him as a game maker. As really one of the first cinematic game makers that we had, someone that really understood in a very ‘Sergio Leone’ kind of spaghetti western way of making film, in a game. And for giving us one of the greatest video game characters ever, in the multiple iterations of Snake.”

He also once again stuck up for Kiefer Sutherland, assuring his performance for the game will be great. “For me, as a fan of the franchise, to be in a Metal Gear game, especially this one, is huge. And I’m glad that I wasn’t Snake, cause that… Kiefer… to his credit, Kiefer Sutherland knocked it out of the freaking park. And he came in and he put the work in. So… I love David Hayter. I love David, he’s a good dude and he’s Snake. But so is Kiefer. And that guy showed up and rolled up his sleeves and got dirty on this game. So reserve judgement until you play it. You only have like two more months left. And trust me, it will be worth it.”

Troy then proceeded to talk about his own role in the game. “But the fact that I get to be Ocelot…”

This is how Troy feels about getting to play Ocelot

He continued: “There’s an Ocelot in every game. You know, and that’s, again, I get to be counted among some really really great actors. Between Patric Zimmerrman, Josh Keaton and me. That’s cool! And it’s a great version of Ocelot too. So I can’t wait for everybody to play it. And I think it might be the most ambitious game I’ve ever seen, just in sheer scope of what you can do inside that game.” He concluded saying the game is going to be incredible.

    I can trust him even though most of his voices are random roles but he got involved with tlou uncharted and so much.even Catherine looool

    • MichaelPayneV

      “random voice” Dude, Troy Baker is one of the Few, if not the only Voice actor that could record a conversation between Batman, Joker, Two Face, Black Mask, Tim Drake, and Jason Tod (Red Hood) by himself in 1 room, and you won’t notice is the same actor, so Troy is actually The Best Voice Actor!

            Hahaha

      • Alex

        Man! Troy Baker is my crush XD hahahahaha, No, really. The voice of Troy is awesome. I can’t wait to hear and see how Ocelot do his performance in TPP.

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      I know right, I have been a big fan of Troy baker ever since the last of us.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    I was impressed by Kiefer’s performance in Ground Zeroes. Even with so few lines, it was enough for me to say “you’re pretty good”! 🙂 Ocelot in this game is gonna be amazing! Troy’s range is fantastic. Really loving what l heard so far. Do you guys remember last year when the Quiet but not silent trailer aired? We had long discussions about Ocelot’s weird sounding voice… “Siege her”! Haha.

    • Amrit

      “Miller! She shaved the boss..”

      “SHE WAS SHAVING HERSELF! FIRE!”

      • MichaelPayneV

        “PUT HER IN THE CELL!”

        • korruption

          “Bosh! You are going to regret thish!”

          • MichaelPayneV

            “I know, she knows our location. Either way one of these day we’re gonna have to kill her, nut now is NOT, the TIME…but when the time comes…”

          • Tong Ninja

            Don’t forget he smacks his lips before he says “But when the time comes … ” 😛

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Hehehehe.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            I’ll finger the trigger.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hah “But when the time cums, i’ll finger Quiet and pull her triggers!”

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Oh I didn’t know we was taking that far!?,( the face you make when you can’t come up with a better line then his).

      • Alberto Sánchez

        Yes. I got that joke xD

      • David Lopez

        Don’t blame Kaz, poor dude had to look at a hairy girl, it’s normal he has PTSD because of it.

      • Ozzman

        “When the time comes… I’ll pull the trigger!” What a amazing music plays after these words, it’s awesome.

    • Korvus

      Kiefer had a good amount of lines considering the cassette tapes in GZ

      • Daburcor

        And he was great!

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      I agree with you bro, Kiefer Sutherland will do pretty good in the phantom pain, I have faith in him. I already know Troy Baker is gonna knock it out the park voice acting as ocelot, but what I’m really interested in is find out more about Haul Emmerich’s father in the phantom pain.

    • Plissken

      “Oslit raising hounds”

      • ObsessedGeorge

        You can listen to the tapes you gathered. If you’re in-tre-steed. 🙂

  • TheUppu

    I think it’s good that we have some new actors to freshen up the game. David Hayter was so good and I would have loved him as snake too but seeing gz i have no bad feelings about Kiefe Sutherland as snake. He fits the role every bit as well as David. It also brings up new exitement for playing the game since it’s a totally different feelings playing Kiefer snake than David, and it has nothing to do with the gameplay mechanics

  • Troy is a beautiful man. His work as Joel and The Joker makes him untouchable to me. I’ll always trust that he’ll do the best job possible. His mid age Ocelot voice is on point. I’m glad Ocelot is a codec contact and he’ll be walking through the game.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Well, the only place Kiefer disappoints me is in the Cassette Tapes, there he sounds like pure Kiefer, when during Cutscenes he sounds like Snake, so i hope in TPP he put the same effort in to the Cassette Tapes as in the Cutcsenes.

    • Tong Ninja

      He sounds great in the cassette tapes in my opinion. You sound different on a cassette tape compared to speaking to someone in open space haha.

  • MichaelPayneV

    I see no one talking about this, but i think this is the same funeral, except in 2014 we see it at night.
    http://www.thegamingbuddha.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/funeral-pyre.png

    and in 2015 how it looks taking place at day.

    (DAMN IT, Can’t find a picture, but you get the point!

    • Gatsu

      Yeah it is the same place, I noticed it too after watching the trailer a couple times :D. But in Elegia trailer the crowd there is less soldiers.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, maybe that once again shows that if you haven’t recruited a lot of people, there will be a lot less people at the funeral, or maybe during the day most of your base will be busy with their side ops!

        I also have a feeling that this is when Skull face will show up at the Mother Base, to show his respects for the Diamond Dogs Soldiers that died by the Skulls, to attempt making peace with Snake, and start planing the elimination of Cipher together, leaving the past behind!

        http://media.psu.com/media/13-03-27-17-40-18-6919/13-03-27-17-40-18-6919-ss-25.jpg

        • Gatsu

          Yeah could be like that or then that other funeral scene from Elegia comes later at the story, because Ocelot is there and not Kaz. Or then some of the soldiers just leave at some point so that griefing soldier only remains.

          I first thought that Skull Face chopper scene might be in MB, but I believe it’s in Afghanistan because in the E3 2015 short trailer could very briefly see mountains in the far back. As MB is in the middle of ocean so 🙂 … I guess it could be some other base, unless DD MB is close to the coast.

    • RJRO

      http://puu.sh/iIn4W/146f33bf98.jpg
      i think is just another funeral, your soldiers may die because of outer ops or mother base attacks.
      This funerals is something that will happen in Mother Base from time to time.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I don’t think so, that would get repetitive, and in time the funeral it would lose its significance, and would feel like another cutscene to skip, it would ruin the game if it could happen often.

        • RJRO

          I did not mean it like a cutscene but as part of Mother base mechanics, just like the world of MGSV will have wildlife that adapts to day and night cycle the base will adapt to the decitions you make as the Boss.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Which is why i said that this was the same funeral, as only 1 would have a cutscene!

          • RJRO

            But the coffins are in the ground in the E32015 trailer. In the E3 2014 the coffins are in stretchers.

          • MichaelPayneV

            More examples of Dynamic Cutscenes, maybe they will be put in coffins if you have a better R&D Unit.

    • Javier

      I think it’s the same

    • J_muse72

      Thank you for understanding everyone 🙂

  • Gatsu

    I always love when Troy talk about MGSV and Kojima, he’s such a great actor :D. MGSV and Kojima+buddies deserves all the praise they get, think about how different games might be without Metal Gear Solid. Also Kojima doing every MGS differently, love it <3.

    Troy is a perfect choise for middle saga Ocelot imo :).

    I also liked Kiefer in GZ and from what I've seen in TPP, he will do fantastic job. Yes yes…this is just my opinion, but I don't know how to explain it. I just think his voice fits really well for Big Boss :). I honestly can't wait to see his work as Big Boss all the way from the nightmarish rude awakening to the end (Outer Heaven?) and what happens between the characters in the story.

    MGSV:TPP will be so mind-blowing.

  • cardboardbox engineer

    he loves everyone….. that is pretty good

  • bosskhalife

    Kiefer is Really good…………………………..

    • MichaelPayneV

      Wrong, he is Pretty Good.

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        No, he is terrific good.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Hey, leave Kiefer alone, let the Legend come back to life!

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Ooooooooookkkkkiiii.

  • Javier

    I forget this comparison when the trailer was released.

    The 2014 is better.

    • RJRO

      They change the filter or is just at a different time.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I think is due to the Green Filter and the improved bloom, that seems to be turned off in the 2014 Trailer.

    • It looks like a time of day thing. Cut scenes are dynamic in the TPP

      • Javier

        I know, anyway they has changed things.

    • Gatsu

      I think it looks just as fantastic, as folks below said different time imo = brighter lighting.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Looks like in 2014 the weather was more cloudy, when in the 2015 Trailer is full Sunny, and it also look like Hideo has finally managed to bring the 80’s film filter back, more exactly the green filter from the original Ground Zeroes Demo!
      http://gamingbolt.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/mgsgw-5.jpg

      • Javier

        Yeah, I see the light difference.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Not this downgrade shit again.man

    • MichaelPayneV

      It doesn’t look as detailed as in 2014, but that may be due to the Depth of Field or the Film Filter, or both.

    • MichaelPayneV

      It is hard to tell, as the 2015 image is a screen cap, and not official Screenshot as the 2014 one!

      • Javier

        I captured the two images from the two trailers.

    • Alberto Sánchez

      Different hour, man. Models are the same.

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      Well maybe the 2014 wasn’t running in real time as the new trailer from e3.

    • Franky

      Why do you have to Start this bullshit lol.

      • MichaelPayneV

        This is not BS, there is a difference, plus that’s what this comunity was made for in the first place, talking about things, debating and disgusing about anything Metal Gear related, including Graphics.

    • MichaelPayneV

      After analizing it, is the other way around, the 2014 one looks too plasticky and fake, while the 2015 the rendering looks like is from a Rockstar Game, therefore less plasticky, and more real life like materials, and it also looks more Movie like, like an 80’s war Movie, thanks to the Green Film filter similar to the old Rambo Movies and Predator, and it also looks like the 2015 one has the improved Bloom of the GZ PC version.

      TL;DR: Overall the 2015 Graphics looks Finished, has a lot more Graphical features erected…i mean turned on (see what i did there) while the 2014, all tough at first more detailed, it doesn’t look as Cinematic as the 2015 one.

    • Batzi

      Nothing changed with the graphics. It’s just a different time of the day. Yes time changes (day/night) affects cutscenes and the visuals.

      Another example (2 shots released at the same event):

      • No Place For Hayter

        Took the words right out of my mouth, I was like “NOOOO it is just a different time of day”. lol.

      • glitchbomb

        God….that scene. Anyone got a decent wallpaper of this?

    • Jim Houseman

      Miller has new glasses!

      And they’ve added a new screen based lens flare system in the 2015 footage, looks pretty good mostly but a bit OTT in that hallway scene.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Well, what i would like to know from Troy, is who is the second character he is voicing in TPP, is it a new character, or an an existing one?
    If you are going to say “Is Ocelot” and don’t have any other name to propose, don’t waste your time replying, i really want to know who do you think the second Monologue voice could be other than Ocelot.

    My theory is that, just like in Peace Walker, is a defecting Soldier, the first soldier that the game tells you to fulton, in TPP case an XOF Soldier, more exactly this hesitant one.
    http://babysoftmurderhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Metal-Gear-Solid-Ground-Zeroes-Screenshots-3.jpg

    • SiodogRehane

      secondary soldier sure, on the interrogation cassette tape at GZ it was him talking to skullface (common soldier)

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      It could be Ishamel, my money on that.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Ishmael is voiced by Kiefer, not Troy Baker, so, case closed.

        • Bigbossmsf1974

          But that was for the phantom pain trailer from 2012, we don’t know what Kojima will have in the final build up in the game, so I’m keeping my hat on until then.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Only 2 month to find out the truth…well 2 and a half month for me (Steam)

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Your right MichaelPayneV I agree with you, I can’t wait to see you out there on the battlefield because I’m gonna be ready and aiming.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, i’m not going to be in MGO untill i finish the Story, and i want to take my time with it.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Bro I totally respect and understand that you need to take your time experiencing the phantom pain, I agree with you because I’m gonna do the same thing once I get my hands on the game.

  • Tong Ninja

    Ocelot will be great in TPP, because he will have a lot more screen time and dialogue. Instead of being in the dark and triple crossing everyone in previous games, we’ll see him alongside Big Boss. 🙂
    And Kojima stated that Ocelot will be one of the coolest characters in TPP. 😀

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      I totally agree with everything you just said Tong Ninja.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Lets not forget that Ocelot is the true main character of the series, by being in every game but one 🙂

      • Raymondius

        Oh, you think so?? What about Johnny, huh??!! What about him???!

        • No Place For Hayter

          There are two Johnnies and thus he wasn’t in nearly every game, also I think his performance in MGS4 kind of negates him of getting anything other than hate, lol.

          • Raymondius

            I… think you’re right. 🙁

            You know I was kidding right? xD Ocelot could perfectly fit as a main character alongside Snake father & son.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, lol, I don’t think anybody could be serious about Johnny being a contender for the main character of the series, lol, it is a funny thought though.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        Yea I totally agree with you.. Whose voice do we typically hear after the credits roll? Ocelot’s. While other people keep crying for a game starring The Boss, I’m waiting on that Revolver Ocelot game. Eh… I guess it’d be more of a shooter than stealth though.

        They really know their games xD.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      After all this time they let the judges play.i know how dat feels

  • Bigbossmsf1974

    God I love Troy Baker not just because of his amazing voice acting, but because his a well down the earth person who doesn’t judge games or the voice actors until he get his hands on the final product. It still amazes me how Troy baker can vouch for Kiefer Sutherland and the phantom pain being on both sides of the table as a voice actor and as a gamer, reassuring the fans that we came have complete faith and trust in Kiefer Sutherland performance and Hideo Kojima final product the phantom pain. Men thank you so much Troy Baker for this wonderful update on the phantom pain and reassuring the fans of the metal gear franchise, that we can have faith in kojima’s final game and that we need too withhold our judgement of the game until it hit the shelves. Thank you again Troy Baker and thank you Nyxus for continuing updating us fans on metal gear news, your the real MVP Nyxus, MEN I’M SO FUCKING OVER HYPE FOR THIS GAME AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!?????.

    • MeLand127

      Haha, that kid is SOO fluffy ;D

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        XD I know right, I was just searching for some hype picture on google and this was the funniest one I discovered. ( note: I mean no disrespect to big people at all because I’m from a family of big people)

        • MeLand127

          Haha it’s okay bro, I know that feels too

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Yeah man I can be tuff also when you have nobody there to support you when you’re down.

    • Javier

      Baker is not going to say “Kiefer is great but I miss hayter, he is the real snake”.

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        Indeed David hayter is solid snake, even now he’s big boss to me as well, but we must pass on the role of big boss to someone we can trust in, and that person is no other than kiefer sutherland. I can vouch that kiefer sutherland will be great as big boss in the phantom pain, In ground zeroes I felt that kiefer really nailed the personality of big boss, tho he do need to pitch down on his voice a little deeper so we can get that more of a grumpy and grudge side of big boss we all know and love from hayter years as big boss. But still I have complete trust and faith in Kojima sensei decision and kiefer sutherland abilities to deliver, tho I do wish kojima could’ve let David hayter voice big boss in ground zeroes as a fail well and a send off to hayter for all the years he’s been with konami and kojima production. It makes sense to me, because after big boss would’ve woke up from his nine years coma in 1984, his voice would be kiefers because he has age over the years, but you know what they ya’ll, the developers don’t think like the gamers.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Judging by the picture you activated your MG:S hype mode.

      • Bigbossmsf1974

        Hahaha yeah I guess I did huh!?.

  • Franky

    Hayter will forever be Solid Snake and thats fine.

  • Tong Ninja

    I posted this in the previous article, but to anyone who missed it:

    Metal Gear Solid Vocal Theme Tracks and Covers CD:

    Interesting to note that Quiet’s Theme is officially sang by STEFANIE JOOSTEN herself! 😀 The only words we will ever hear from Quiet! haha

    (To the person in the previous articles who guessed correctly that Stefanie sang the song, good job! 🙂 )

    Donna Burke will also sing a cover to Quiet’s theme which we have already heard a little bit of in the 2013 E3 trailer. She will also cover the main theme songs from previous Metal Gear Solid games as well! 😀

    • Gatsu

      Stefanie Joosten singing it… mmmmmm ! Also yeah, that whole list is gonna kick ass, what a DREAM LIST OH MY GOD! The Best is Yet To Come :O !? Snake Eater >:O !!?

      Btw I wonder how Donna sings The Best Is Yet To Come, I mean that original version is just so magical with that weird language (no offense to ppl who speak it). Well…she is Donna, anything’s possible.

      THE BEST COMES IN 62 DAYS!

      • muaddib

        “the best is yet to come” it’s some type of native irish.
        japaneses (kojima himself) have some sort of connection with irish music.
        also, the singer (aoife ní fhearraigh) is irish, too

        • Gatsu

          Yes that was it, thanks :). Still what a beautiful song even after 17 years.

          • Bigbossmsf1974

            Who you telling Gatsu!?, I still cry like a little mouse every time I hear the song!. Oh no I think I’m about to cry right now!!???…………noooooooooooo.

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      Thank you Tong Ninja this also terrific news to hear, this just adds more to my hype mode which I’m starting to dislike because it’s killing to stay in this mode far to long. But thanks again soldier( salutes)

  • Old Liquid

    Jesus christ… When will the Hayter & Sutherland topic finally die for good?

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      When the fox die!?……..that’s when it will stop!!!!.

    • No Place For Hayter

      When my user name changes 😉

      On a serious note, it should end when the game is released, it gets brought up because of the tension and mystery of the actual voice acting itself, but when everybody finally gets the game and plays it and hears Kiefers performance they will make up there minds as to whether or not they think he is doing a good job, once everybody plays the game there will be nothing to bring up and talk about but an opinion of the voice acting.

      • Javier

        The people could think the acting is perfect because the game will be great.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Very true, you also end up with people whom form preconceived notions about the voice acting and thus colour their perception of it, lol.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        If you want to get a sample of Kiefer Sutherland’s voice acting you can watch Phone Booth 😉 .
        It’s a great movie 🙂 .

        • Alberto Sánchez

          Yes, but Colin Farrel screws it up.

    • korruption

      I’ll just say it in the most subtle way possible: Fucking never! =(

  • Golgari

    I hope that Kiefer Sutherland will do an amazing job in the game, but there are some concerns and they are not because of his voice, his voice imo was in GZ great and I’m sure it will be great in TPP.
    My issue with all of it, that he was too expensive in my opinion. From all of the previews he does not speak much, in the first 16 hours of the game for sure (according to the previews), but he is a lot in the cassette tapes. How can you explain that?
    But on the other hand David Hayter did not talk much in Peace Walker (except for cutscenes and cassette tapes), but that was a PSP Game.

    What if there was a pain in the ass to call Kiefer Sutherland for recordings? Because he have other stuff like movies or TV series. But again, according to Hideo Kojima’s twitter, they did a lot of recordings in Japan with Otsuka.

    so much mystery behind Snake’s voice…

    • Bigbossmsf1974

      True true and I agree on everything you just mention Golgari, but what I am really concerned about is the fact that big boss speak less in the phantom pain. That really scares me because the one thing I love about big boss is when he talks a lot, it doesn’t matter to me who is voicing him, it’s the character itself who I am concerned about and want to know more about. Now I already know big boss is suffering mass trauma and stressed disorder, and that could be the reason why he won’t be talking much in the phantom pain, and that’s what worries me the most. What if I can’t connect with big boss because he talk less in the game, what if this back fires on Kojima from the fans, not because of Kiefer Sutherland voice acting, but because big boss barely talks threw the hold game. I hope kojima expresse big boss feeling in some other way so the fans of the franchise can understand him, like maybe threw big bosses hallucination or facial expressions. Something down long the line that the fans will know they’re playing as big boss and not just some empty shell of him.

      • Javier

        That’s why I miss the old codec. You see and hear snake talking a lot. Now you just hear the codec but don’t say anything. “The tapes” are not the solution for me, they are just for the people who doesn’t like the “long story” of the mg games. I’m talking of the no fans.

        • Bigbossmsf1974

          And I totally agree with you Javier, they need to bring back the old way of codec where both big boss and the person who is relying a message to him are both talking to each other. I also feel the same way about the cassette tapes, tho they bring a good feel and more insight to the story, it feels like you’re still left out on a lot. When I use to play peace walker a while back, I had to vision cutscenes or pictures of the people who’re talking on the cassette tapes just to make myself feel more emerged in the game. That’s why I hoped around this time Hideo Kojima would’ve added cutscenes or pictures to the phantom pain cassette tapes, something that could be similar to peace walker comic cutscenes. But who knows Javier, we might still be in for a big surprise when the phantom pain hit the shelves, I wouldn’t expect any less from the legendary troll kojima himself.

      • Mini gear

        Yeah I was worried about his silence because big boss always gave moving words and feelings when he talked, I loved listening to his character speak. I’m hoping kojim didn’t go to far with the silence

        • Bigbossmsf1974

          Yeah Mini gear that what’s scares me the most about the phantom pain, the fact that kojima is ok with big boss talk less in this game really bothers me you know. I already know that kojima mention a while back in a interview, the reason why big boss is talking less in the phantom pain is because of the mass of taruma big boss suffered to the head and stress disorder from losing all his comrades and mother base. Personally I always thought big boss would be the time of guy who would snap and get angry at everything and everyone around him because of the stress disorder, but instead he goes in complete silence. I do hope and pray kojima sensei will show big boss emotions or feelings either threw a facial expression or either threw a hallucination, so the fans of the metal gear saga can feel like they’re connecting with big boss. I hope this game truly turn out well, because it will hurt me to see kojima get bashed by fans and critics alike for mashing up a good game, not because of kiefer voice acting but because big boss barely talk in the game.

    • Javier

      It could be true. We are not ok with the silent protagonist, like the last mad max movie.
      I read a preview where they didn’t like a mute snake.

    • SholidOnline

      Kojima said himself that the player is the one who makes the decisions and actions, therefore there wouldn’t be as much Big Boss voicing. Plus, Kiefer said he loved voicing Big Boss. Please people, look up some of this stuff. Kojima has gotten everything he needed.

    • Tong Ninja

      Perhaps for the facial capture, if he is not saying anything he will use subtle facial expressions to tell a story and/or sell a reaction. Things like raising an eyebrow, wrinkling the nose, twitching, cheek movement, grimacing in pain, smacking lips, etc as well as emotions. From the looks of things the facial animations for all the characters in the game are ALL done by the English based actor’s facial capture, and not by hand (ie. animators). The problem with this, is that we didn’t see too much of the facial capture in Ground Zeroes … but hoping for a lot of it in TPP as well as cutscene dialogue.
      I think this Big Boss will a lot of quality quotes, that we will remember haha. 😀

      At the VGA awards last year, Kiefer said he has been working on the game for 2 years (2012 – 2014). Yes Kiefer was working on 24 in 2013. From what I’m gathering, Kiefer and the other english actors do the first set of voice/facial recordings with Kris Zimmerman. Then afterwards Kojima collects the recordings and goes to Japan, where Otsuka and the rest does the voice over recording based on the English actor’s facial animations/ voice recordings. They probably do this process after each 4-8 hour session to make sure the Japanese dub is consistent with the English version.

  • Fábio Júlio Martins

    Sorry guys, off topic, but does anyone now when can we pre-order the PS4 Special Edition MGSV bundle in the UK? And how much it’s going to cost?

  • MichaelPayneV

    YEEEESSSSSS, Angry Joe finally uploaded his TPP interview, and the person interviewed is not other than the MGSV Steam community Big Boss himself, Robert!
    https://youtu.be/wAeD6BR9e5k

    • Javier

      I like the way joe talks about microtransactions, he talks from the gamer perspective. And in the other video he can talk about what he feels.

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Nice video!

      I wonder what they’re going to do with those 2 extra weeks for PC. It’s really not that long. Steam integration maybe?

  • MichaelPayneV

    Update: Also a Vlog about the Microtransactions and Kojima!
    https://youtu.be/TEvsyAmdCqc

    • Ryan Locke

      I completely agree with joe. If they start making more mgs titles without kojima i will have a huge problem. But I will also support kojima with whatever the next thing he does will be.

      Try searching by signing into psn on a computer or an actual Web browser. Its weird but it’s the best way to find stuff you are looking for. For some dumb reason certain things get hidden when you search via psn on the consoles.

    • Boldizar

      I can’t believe Way to Fall was left off 😛

      • Gatsu

        Oh maan, I didn’t realize that yesterday. Way To Fall is one of my favorite songs… 🙁

        • Boldizar

          It doesn’t make sense either. It is the only credits song missing and other songs the composer wrote are featured on the disc.

      • No Place For Hayter

        They also left our Love Deterrence, and the MGS4 arrange of Here’s to You. And probably some others, they aren’t thinking large enough, they should label it MAIN vocal tracks and covers, as the others are left out, lol.

    • Ol’ Jack Burton

      When people talk about Metal Gear vocal themes, Can’t Say Goodbye to Yesterday never really seems to get mentioned, which is a real shame.

      RIP Carla White

      • Boldizar

        That is the best one for sure.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah you have to at least mention the MAIN songs for each game.

        1= The Best is yet to come.
        2= Can’t say goodbye to yesterday.
        3= Snake eater.
        4= Love theme
        PW= Heaven’s divide.

        Of course every game has other great important note worthy songs, but you at least have to include these, lol.

      • Plissken

        True, but I didn’t forget. Just like I never forgot what Ol’ Jack Burton says at a time like this

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    Troy Baker is an amazing human being. I thought, ‘I’ll watch this interview with him before I go to bed’ and it was 100% the right decision. The part where he says, do what you love, because if we do we wouldn’t have people going into churches and shooting people… we wouldn’t be angry at the guy next to us’. That is hands down one of the most intelligent examples of the spoken word I have ever come across. Language…… the theme of MGSV…… I’m losing my mind over here!

  • J_muse72

    Only 1 month 30 days and 20 hours left guys!

  • FoxTamerMGO

    This game has one of the greatest voice actors. Kiefer sutherland, Troy baker, Robin Atkin Downes.. I swear to god that when i first watched the movie called “Phone Booth” in 2002 and heard Kiefer talking in it.. I was like.. “imagine if this guy voice acts SNAKE, it would be SOOOOOO SICK!”. It’s like i can see the future XD.. That movie is a must-see guys. All what kiefer does is talk in that movie, and in the entire movie you only hear his voice and you don’t see him. YOU’LL LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

    • Tong Ninja

      I really liked Phone Booth. Kiefer plays a creepy sniper with a god complex hahaha. Yes his whole performance was voice recorded in a studio separate from the movie set. 🙂

      • FoxTamerMGO

        I liked that creepy sense to it :3 i hope he does it again when Big Boss turns crazy :”)

        • korruption

          I, too, hope for this, sir.

    • korruption

      That was a fucking great movie. Kiefer makes for one nasty and kickass villain! That was the first (and only) movie I saw starring him.

      Soooooo who else is hoping there’ll be an easter egg in TPP with a chance to re-enact it? =)

      • Tong Ninja

        Probably a few 24 references, like in Ground Zeroes: “Don’t fight it”, “DAMN IT!”
        Maybe in the torture cutscenes, he will be like, ” TELL ME WHERE THE BOMB IS! ” haha

        • Ol’ Jack Burton

    • I’ll take that code good sir

      • BurntFM

        Cool. I don’t how how to send it to you. You want to add me on PSN? I’ll send it to you in a message.

    • glitchbomb

      Dammit. Too slow. I recently got a wb account just to get the Anime costume and it sucks.

        sorry, If I had a ps4 I would have kept it cause this costume looks nice.

    • That’s a bad thing?

        Not necessarily, as he is talking from an actor perspective, but in TPP case i feel Troy talking from a Gamer Perspective.

    Off-topic, but check this out. For PT lovers, this seems pretty darn amazing :O! It captures the feeling and look of PT really well imo :).

    http://www.gamingpcforum.com/silent-hills-p-t-inspired-game-allison-road-gets-13-minutes-of-gameplay-in-its-prototype-stage/

    “Alison Road, a game that’s heavy inspired by Silent Hills’ playable teaser demo P.T. just got a 13 minute prototype gameplay video to showcase where the game is headed, and it looks like fantastic. Also there’s a nice little nod to the P.T. demo in that video.
    It’s worth noting that while everything you saw is actual gameplay footage of the game, that slice of gameplay video won’t appear in the full game. It was only made to showcase Alison Road and avoiding spoilers.”

    11:30 –> sounds+atmosphere reminds me of PT a lot

    • BurntFM

      Kojima retweeted the Kotaku article about this game. I think he wants this game to happen more than anyone. I hope they can collaborate at some point.

      • Gatsu

        That would be great :D! Love that little PT quote in this gameplay video :).

    • Boldizar

      Also inspired by the Gin Blossoms…

    • mikeyyytexas

      I was going to post this earlier but got caught up with school… but yeah i kinda wouldn’t be surprised if Kojima is behind this… buuuttttt thats just speculation. I didn’t think the VA was all that great but i felt my heart thumping in my chest just like with PT so… this is good isn’t it?

    JunkerHQ confirmed the alternate run MGSV gameplay demo will be posted around 7th July. It will be in Japanese narrated by Akio Otsuka (Japanese voice for Big Boss). English version to come later. 🙂

    • I was talking to my gf not much ago. Last time i watched PT Demo, the head movements of Lisa are the same that Gray Fox when he gets nuts (not saying here anything about theories, haha) just something that reminds of it.

      Have a nice day 🙂

      Nice . Skulls travel in sand storms ( This was confirmed time ago ) and they disappear with some kind of green poppy Dust

      This could be related to the ” Virus ” and they travel fast thanks to the wind . Yhea i know it sound silly and crazy but just look the trailers closely

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, I personally think that it is the darker, creepier, and more psychological aspects of TPP that Kojima made that finally motivated him to do Silent Hills. That being said, due to this TPP will make us miss SHs even more because of how well Kojima did aspects like that in TPP.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I also think that Lisa was voiced by Stefanie, the hum is really similar.

  • Banana Man

    i remember watching 24 and thinking, “this fucking guy is snake” on one hand im super happy kojima thought so too, but on the other i really miss david hayter’s iconic voice

    • MichaelPayneV

      Same as Jeremy Hajhn said, that when he watched 24 at some point he said “this guy is like Solidus Snake” and since Solidus was the Perfect Clone, it explains why Hideo gt an actor close to that voice or Big Boss, that this time has finally a MG Game how he wanted, because i bet he wanted BB from the beginning to have another actor, but was forced to use Hayter due to the backlash of raiden in MGS2, so MGSV is full Kojima, is the ultimate MGS Experience.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Little Off-Topic: Is it just me, or this Movie feels like it has some Kojima in it?
    For those who don’t know, this is Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming film, and Del Toro said that he would go to the end of the world with Kojima, so i have a feeling that he worked on this Movie, getting ready to more from Game Making to Movie Making!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Question for the community:

    How big do you think TPP is in GB?

    • Mini gear

      im gonna guess 58. probley over 40 though

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well considering that Afganistan and Angola ias about 40% of the Campaign, i would say around 35 max 50 GB, max 8 GB Per Map!

        Now about the Map, we have a desert Area (Afganistan) and a Jungle Area (Angloa) all that’s left for TPP to be a complete Tactical game, is a Forest Area, a Snowy Mountain Area, and a City Area.

        Don’t know about you, but considering that in MGS4 you got to revisit Shadow Moses, i have a feeling that at some point in TPP we will get to Revisit Groznyj Grad, since it played a really significant part in Big Boss’s Past!

        • WrongDirectionZ

          Agree, i thought about that too. A Fox-Engine rendered Groznyj Grad would be ultrabadass! Instead of a city are i would love to see a huge interrior like Shadow Moses or Outer Heaven (I think Cipher build up Outer Heaven and BB will pirate it later in TPP).

          When you think about it it´s kind of logicly that there must be a snow area. With the implementation of realtime weather in the game, Kojima surely wants to show us all the capabilitys of the Fox Engine. Rain, sun, fog, sandstorms… so why letting snow out…?!?

          • Mr.Pony

            Kojima will make a snow level if the story requires it, not just to show off the Fox Engine. Honestly i don’t see it happen, even tough it would be awesome sneaking around with buddies in a snow environment.

          • WrongDirectionZ

            Of course not ^^ i didn´t meant it that way 😀 But: It would be awsome and Kojima san knowes that! That´s it! 🙂

          • Javier

            We could have the snow in afganhistan with the dlc crazy weather! 30u$s.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, no, just, NO!

          • MichaelPayneV

            I don’t think you need a separate area for a huge interior, considering that Afganistan alone is as big as Far Cry 4 entire map, you can have the building you are talking inside 1 of these areas.

            Plus, who wouldn’t love a City area, it has never been done in Metal Gear outside the Cutscene from MGS2, it would gave the game a “Hitman” Vibe, having both pedestrians and soldiers, and i also know 1 location and event that could work.

            1989, the revolution that lead to the fall of the Communism in Romania, the city area would be the city of Bucharest, and your mission would be to Interrogate and C.Q.C Nicolae Ceausescu, the President of Romania at that time, and do it before he is caught and executed, then you’ll C.Q.C. knock him and let him be caught, and executed.

          • WrongDirectionZ

            And the fight with solidus was also in a city location (I don´t know if the roof of federal Hall counts) love this idea ^^ you painting pictures with words 😀 Anyway, no matter what locations we´ll visit in TPP, i have no doubt that it will blew our minds!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, that was on top of a building in a City Area, but we never got to infiltrate and explore a city area, so now with the Open World and working vehicles is the perfect time for one to be added in Metal Gear!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Indeed, my mind is already blown by what i have seen so far.

          Kojima stated that there will be no urban areas like a city area. Snow and forest areas are very possible though. 🙂 I hear a few people say Vietnam is a possible country to visit as well.

          We have to take into account, the Mother Base area and Ground Zeroes map. We get to revisit Ground Zeroes area for something special (something that can’t be done in movies, but can be done in video games).

            I always think it will be odd watching snake walking in an urban area

          • Tong Ninja

            Agreed, Snake doesn’t really encounter civilians or large crowds of people. Big Shell, Shadow Moses, Russian Jungle, Warzones, etc.

            The only urban area in the Metal Gear Solid series, was Eastern Europe (Act 3 from MGS4), but the city was at night and was under heavy curfew. So not many civilians around.

            I don’t, as long as he is dressed decent.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Wrong Kojima only said that the Open World is not GTA Open World, but i areas, he didn’t say that there won’t be a city area, he just said that the map is not 1 big city area, don’t forget that Hideo only answer what he was asked, not what the question meant, but what the question demanded.

            Okay fair enough. 🙂
            Also do you mean an urban city like New York? I find it unlikely that Snake would venture into a city populated with citizens.
            If you’re talking about an abandoned desolate city due to war conflicts, then that would be more possible. 🙂

            By city, you mean an urban city like New York. I find it unlikely that Snake would venture into a city populated by civilians.

            But if you mean abandoned desolate cities due to war conflicts, that would be more plausible haha. 🙂

            Something between, a City Area like New York, but during the Romanian Revolution, with both Cops and The Army on the Streets put to stop people from protesting, and attacking people, and people breaking stores, devastating cars, waving flags, and demanding a change, this would go perfect with the “Words” theme of TPP!

            This is the Event i’m talking about.

          Just thinking about the possibilities of how these new areas are going to be. I’d be fine with afghan and Angola but they just keep adding more and more and I’m just getting happier and happier thinking about it. 2 more months. Homestretch.

          good points there, we might revisit grznyj grad with volgin appearing everywhere for a final fight against him maybe, id like a snow area too, i didnt think of a forest and city yet, by the way did they confirm more maps? my memories a bit fuzzy.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Something tells me that the Camera, the character from which perspective we are seeing MGSV is The Boss following Big Boss, and making him come back to Groznyj Grad, where they fought.

      this is one interesting question, i personally think it would be around 30

      • MichaelPayneV

        You mean smaller then GTA V? Afganistan alone is as big as half of GTA V Map, and exactly as big as Far Fry 4 map.

        • cardboardbox engineer

          we are all guessing right? 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i’m not guessing, 47 minutes of walking from 1 point to another (TPP Map) is exactly the same time you make on foot in Far Cry 4 from 1 point to another, so it is exactly as big as Far Cry 4 Map, Afghanistan alone.

        If it has just 4 locations, that could be it actually.

  • WaterFaster2012

    It won’t be as big as Witcher 3. I’m approaching 240 hours of game play, and I’m still not finished with the story and plenty of question marks left on several maps.
