Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced its highlights for this year’s gamescom, as the publisher showcases the eagerly-awaited METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 at the Cologne event.

The games represent huge advances in the action and sport genres, and celebrate their world premieres at gamescom in Cologne as they are shown in playable form to a public audience for the very first time at KONAMI’s stand (hall 7.1 / B030).

In METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the million-selling series takes a giant stride and sets a new standard in stealth-action. A huge, open world setting sees the series’ famed sneaking elements greatly expanded, while a host of new characters – both allies and enemies – tell a story driven by revenge as franchise protagonist Big Boss enters a series of battlefields following the deaths of his colleagues. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day/night cycles. Thus, players can adapt their tactics to match the changing environment, creating an intuitive and non-linear gameplay experience.

[…]

“METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 will be available for the public to play for the first time at this year’s gamescom; and that´s the kind of line-up that packs a punch,” said Martin Schneider, General Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “KONAMI is going to present two stunning games for the current console generation at the most important consumer exhibition in the world, and further showcases KONAMI’s commitment to bringing AAA-titles to the consumer.”

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be released on September 1st, and PES 2016 on September 17th. The gamescom show will be held in Cologne from August 5th-9th. Further details and information about KONAMI’s activities and presence will be announced soon.

KONAMI´s booth is located in hall 7.1/B030. The booth for business partners and media can be found in hall 4.2/B011.

Tickets for the event can be bought via the official website.

  • A bit far from my place. 🙁
    A downloadable Demo before the release, would be sooo nice.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Someone said that kojima said that a heroes way will be available in the ps store in August ?

      • Cmosfbincludestdioh

        pls tell me thats true LOL

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I do t know?

        • Mini gear

          Easy, start in da choppa, then only thing that can be selected is a Heros way, then demo ends after credits 😀

      • Kol Leqejza

        would make no sense, at all.

      • stagueda

        That would be a bit on the strange side, it would be good but… wouldn’t make much sense to a month before the game release something like that. What Kojima want’s to release is a video showing how motherbase evolves

      • Mini gear

        I’d literally have a heart attack

      • Mini gear

        Where’d you hear that?

      • Braden Gunn

        I can’t see it happening, especially since demos are rarely released now a days, but it would be cool to see.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah. I remember the days when games were sold on quality not hype and companies actually had faith in their product enough to release a demo so people could actually see what there were buying. Off the top of my head I have bought 2 games which I would have never looked at twice but playing the demo made me buy the game, lol. In today’s industry no demos get released because everything is sold on hype and expectations to the casual market, most of which are low quality shovel franchises which are solely sold on the fact that it will be the same as the last 300 games in the series but with a few new broken features which may or may not get patched in the far future, I’m going to stop there, lol, I could type all day about what is wrong with the industry, lol.

          • Braden Gunn

            I agree there are so many games such as Fahrenheit, Just Cause 2, Spec Ops: The Line, The Force Unleashed, and the original Silent Hill that sold me purely on how good the demo was, now a days rarely let players have the chance to trial a game before release.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            FAHRENHEIT INDIGO WAS THE SHIT! DAT SEX SCENE DO

          • Braden Gunn

            Fahrenheit was an amazing game, the set scene was a little bit terrifying haha

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            You wrote set instead of sex

          • Braden Gunn

            This is why I hate commenting using my kindle xD

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Here’s why I hate ipads

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Didn’t like the force unleashed

          • Braden Gunn

            I like the story, but the game itself wasn’t anything great, the demo was pretty fun though since it gave you all the strongest abilities straight away.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Took a bit to get used to . On harder difficulties you had to use all powers or die

          • Jonny McLaurine

            That was long ago brother. Guess we gotta change with the times. Least we have some people who get to try these games first and if honest help us find what’s good.

          • No Place For Hayter

            We definitely need more demos 😉

    • Kol Leqejza

      it’s already available. it’s called Ground Zeroes. although to me it is more of a bootcamp in preperation for The Phantom Pain.

    • The Nano

      they should give EVERYONE who bought Ground Zeroes at full price a free Afghanistan demo as an apology

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Y? I was happy we even got gz. Because if not we wouldn’t of had anything mgs related to play while waiting. I was just on gz today even though I 100% first three days. I still play and I got day it came out and paid full price. I feel I got my money out of it

  • RanFujimiya

    I’ll be all 5 days at Gamescom… you know where to find me, holy shit.
    But I feel sad for everyone who can’t go there. I’ll share everything I get my hands on.

    • MeLand127

      yes PLEASE ^_^

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      I never say someone so kind like you on the internet

    • kuaikukia

      I….

    • Kol Leqejza

      only 1 1/2 months til release. and than i’ll be able to play it in a dark, locked room w/o a crowd that’s interrupting my gaming experience. so i don’t need your pitty, sir 🙂

      köln is um die ecke, aber für 5-10 minuten zocken lohnt sich dat einfach nicht. da schmeiß ich lieber Ground Zeroes auf meiner playsi an.

      • RanFujimiya

        Ich mag das feeling auf der Gamescom irgendwas (vorab) anzuspielen. 🙂 Und dann noch TPP. Aber im Grunde hast du natürlich recht

        • Leviathan

          schön das deutsche hier sind 😛

          • Ishmael

            Grüß dich!

        • Kol Leqejza

          bei so ‘nem storylastigen spiel wirds schwer dass da feeling aufkommt finde ich. nichtsdestotrotz wünsche ich dir viel spaß!

          • Michalien

            Hallo

            vielleicht sieht man sich 😀

          • Kol Leqejza

            ich warte noch auf mein DD Neon Tee 😉

          • Michalien

            mein dd schwarz weiß shirt
            und der sweater sind gestern angekommen
            ENDLICH
            aber der druck auf dem shirt ist leicht zur seite geneigt
            deswegen habe ich ersatz gefordert

          • Kol Leqejza

            ich hab bei levelupwear bestellt. meine sachen kamen noch nicht an, sollten es aber die kommende woche.

          • Michalien

            ich bei insertcoinclothing
            freue mich darauf bei der gamescom damit rumzulaufen

      • Shalashaska

        Yea.. pretend to be strong buddy.. thats all we can do.. *sniff*

        • Kol Leqejza

          i’m an adult.

          • glitchbomb

            …ok?

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Ya waited 3+ years for this since rumors. I think you will be ok for 40 some days till release

          • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

            45 days 5 hours 35 minutes 30 seconds ok. I will NOT be ok until then

      • You bring up good point about playing it alone in the dark. I live on east coast so i wont be able to play it until 3 am. I’m wondering how will all of you play it? I was going to stream it 24 hours but now idk… just want to be alone with it lol. no distractions.

        1.I’m thinking the week before it comes out not play much videogames and exercise. get the feel good chemicals high ha. also eating healthy that week

        2. then monday aug 31 sleep as late as possible. go to store and buy a bunch of snacks, junk food shit lol. meditate before release. do ceremonial sage smudging near ps4 that it will wont break 😉 jk

        3. play disgusting amounts of mgs5 while occasionally having a snack and coffee when and if i need it. All while trying not to be overwhelmed and dying of a heart attack

        How will you guys do it?

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Why can’t u play till 3 am on east coast? I live in pixburgh and I am playing by 12:15 any midnight releases at game stop. 15 minutes away from store

          • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

            I’m in NYC. I can totally play anytime. Just for novelty would wanna wait until midnight.

            Honestly I’m not gonna try for platinum in 14 days – I wanna enjoy the story & bosses thoroughly. I’m gonna take my sweet time making love to this game. On my vacation weeks I will do (estimated) 10 x 12hour stints – probably get 120 hours in! 😀

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Yea some of my fire team members live in nyc. Get everything early. One of em got in trouble recently on some game. Playing online before release date. Can’t remember which game. I used to play competitively , so I try to blast through shit. Curious how long we can 100% it in because how many times have we heard that there is so much to do and will take forever. I’m at 85% on witcher 3 with about 85 hours in. That’s skipping cutscenes and convos second and third time around

          • I did platinum for witcher 3 in about 2 weeks. could of done it first play through if it weren’t for gwent cards you can miss all together at key points. second time playing it for the cards was kinda nerve racking cause you feel like your gonna miss some cards again ha. best of luck to you!

          • there is no videogame store near where i live. I’m getting a physical copy and digital. the digital isn’t accessible until 3 am east coast. Just found out i have to work that week too 🙁 but got the next week off 🙂

        • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

          I found a store that will sell to me early. I will work that Monday & after work get it loaded. Likely start it at either 10pm on 31st or exactly at 12am on the 1st. Then two weeks solid vacation to rock the f**k outta this!!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Haha according to HK to platinum this game is gonna take more than two weeks. I’d suggest quitting and living in a tent wit gaming stuff , plug into neighbors electric:)
            Keep it gangsta
            On a serious note I remember HK saying that there is so much todo that most people won’t platinum it

          • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

            watch me

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Wanna make it interesting. If you do 100% in 14 days . I’ll put honey on my peeper and put in a bee hive. Whit u gonna do

      • I am planning to be playing with my fiancee. By playing with her I mean I’ll take my PC to the living room to play on the big TV and she’ll sit next to me occasionally watching and commenting while playing her own game on notebook 😀

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Glad you can do that. My wife starts telling me what todo in game. So gotta boot her arse downstairs.

          • Well… She has already announced that if I let DD die it’s over between us :P. Maybe you need a second console/PC and play side-by-side at the same time?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Nah she don’t play just watches and says what todo

          • Well, that still can be sweet!
            Eh, who am I kidding, that can be irritating as heck :(. Still hope you’ll have fun with the game!

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Been married 16 years haha . Since we was 17 . Anyways I’m used to it. She loves to watch me play games and watch story

      • I’ve planned to take the week off on release date. Gonna rock it 24/7. Damn I’ve never been so eager for mgs game like V. It’s just the storyline is the gap left. And most important one.

      • Automata Snake

        I wonder if we’ll see Big Boss’s hair/beard start turning gray?thatd be cool.

    • Tong Ninja

      You are so LUCKY!!!!!!!! Wish I can come … haha
      Hope you have a lot of fun! 😀

      When you come back, EVERYONE will be interrogating you for answers! XD

      • glitchbomb

        He will likely be playing the same thing we have all seen and have poured over reviews of so I doubt he will have any new info. Would be cool if it was something diff though.

        • RanFujimiya

          *she ;D
          And I’ll let you know then!

          • glitchbomb

            Sorry about that. Its always hard to tell the sex of of a fellow DD under those balaclava. 🙂

          • RanFujimiya

            No problem. 🙂

      • Jonny McLaurine

        You be surprised . Those events are so fukking packed that it may take a day or two in line jut to play. Everything you will play there has been released in vids. Nothing new. Maybe but I really doubt it. Meaning they would make another 10-15 min demo? With this lil time till release. I wish but nah. waste of time for HK

    • Dotcum22

      Cool i will be there 2 for 2 days! the last 2 days of gamescom i can’t wait last year was my first time there i’ts alot of fun and so much to see

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I hope you get to play. I know tpp lines gonna be long. Good luck

        • Dotcum22

          Yeah last year gamescom they showed a demo in a big box the waiting lines took forever! But it’s going to be worth it.

    • glitchbomb

      Nice! Have fun. I was hoping Konami might have playable demos of TPP but unfortunately ..this was the only thing represented @ the Konami booth sdcc….
      🙁

      • ddmaster

        *shakes head in contempt* “Sad Konami. Just sad”

        Now I do like the original Yugioh series(JUST the original) don’t get me wrong, its just that this outright obvious smack in kojima’s face by passing over his far FAR more popular and more diverse fanbase MG series in favor of this childish narrow niche of a card game is just for lack of a better word infuriating. It truly makes me sick to my stomach knowing the crap poor Kojima-San and all of the KojiCrew are having to go through just because of Konami’s greed. Pisses me off.

        Sorry for rambling, seeing that image of all that Yugioh advertising just got under my skin.

        • glitchbomb

          Imagine how I felt..
          I took a quick 15 min break to see what MGS stuff they had…i struggled through the crowd like a frigging salmon swimming upstream. Then saw the Konami sign and quickened my pace only to have my heart sink when they told me “Yeah, sorry….we are only promoting Yugio this year…I think Square Enix may have something??” D:

          • ddmaster

            I feel for ya. T_T *sniff*

        • Jonny McLaurine

          No comment. Some people like tht game. Like my lil kids …..tpp pls

          • ddmaster

            No comment. Then a comment…..hmmm. Anyway I also have a couple of the older “world championship tournament” games but nonetheless TPP makes more sense from a money standpoint. You don’t hide your prized animal on award day.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Yea demos seem to be reserved for third party developers anymore. Sucks because I used to get playstation and Xbox magazines as a kid with the demo disks. We would see why was worth a fuck an what wasn’t worth toilet paper to wipe our ass

    • Ozzman

      Don’t keep us waiting bro

    • ddmaster

      Digital hugs man! Digital hugs!

    • PsychoMantis18

      Why do you want to start playing MGSV if you’re just going to be re-starting it again in under a month?

      • glitchbomb

        Why not?

        • PsychoMantis18

          Would you watch part of a film you hadn’t seen before if you had tickets to its release in a months time?

          • glitchbomb

            That is not the same. Plus if it us the same thing available at other events, most of us have already seen this part of the game play. I could see not wanting to play it if you are trying to not see anything before release though.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Nah mang, watching a games trailer is like watching a films trailer. Playing missions is like watching scenes of a film. And this line I will not cross

          • glitchbomb

            Even if they are scenes you have already scene?

          • PsychoMantis18

            I thought they got to play Phantom Pain from the start?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            No they won’t do tht. The media did. They put a gag on them and just way to many people to try that. Too much would be spoiled. Bad buisness move. But then again anything is possible

          • glitchbomb

            That’s exactly what I thought too.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Not the same. It’s like playing a demo you watched on tv. Wait it is haha

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Haha if u had a chance u would play. It’s same shit that we been watching the main Koji pro guy play on videos

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I think I speak for us all when I say that I appreciate your generosity.

    • MichaelPayneV

      My Man, please pay attention to the Weapon Recoil when shooting, whether this tiem is in TPP, as it was completely absent in GZ.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        It’d be interesting if he can’t handle recoil with his super bionic arm. It should be zero recoil.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          I hope there is recoil or the online will be who shoots first wins. I play a lot of shooters online and when Somone lets loose with machine gun , they all over the place unless they know how to control. Recoil has saved my ass many times in many games . Gives me a second to POP your fukkin head wit my pistol

          • WhatTheJuicay

            Yea it’d definitely make sense online.

    • Solidus Türk

      NOW GO!!! Let the legend come back to life!!!!

    • Big Boss

      Don’t be, the game is coming in 40 days, the wait will feel shorter especially when all I will be playing MGS1/2/3/4 all over again.

  • Solidus Türk

    Mission 3?

    • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

      Lmao that would blow. I think this implies the full game. It should be done by now/then right?

  • Andrea Feletti

    :DDD

  • MeLand127

    HOLY SHIT

  • WrongDirectionZ

    WHAT?!?

    So i´ll be there thats for sure! Just an hour to drive… ^^^
    Is Nyx coming too?

  • kirtanloorii

    I’ve never once been to any show, but I keep hearing about them. And they always make me jealous.

    • MeLand127

      it’s okay.. you’re not the only one brother 😉

    • ddmaster

      Nope. Time and money always in short supply. -_-

  • Ishmael

    Could go there, but don’t feel the need to. 4 Weeks later i will own the game anyway. And can play it alone, not with 5000 people in my back. Just me, the game, my couch, the tv and the surround sound system.

    • Kol Leqejza

      du sagst es!

    • Tong Ninja

      That’s a good way of looking at it especially for the people who can’t go to the event. 🙂

    • Aleezy

      Save your money

    • Ozzman

      You miss the cigarette while watching cut scenes

      • Cobra Commander

        Right on!
        I need my Methadone, Newports, and southern style sweet tea and I am good to go for hours.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          I hope your joking about methadone. You know tht drug is meant to enslave your mind and body. Opiates are bad as are the synthetics. It’s heroin and that shit ain’t nothing to joke about. I lost my wife’s best friend and my other daughters mom to heroin. Please if you wanna do tht then keep to yourself , some of us have lost a lot of people to drugs. Thank you

      • Ishmael

        not before at 2 or 3 playthrough 😉

    • glitchbomb

      Why can’t you do both?

  • Michalien

    be there the 7th
    hope i get a chance

    • You better wait as long as necessary to play the damn thing!

      • Michalien

        yeeah
        will stand there until they give me the damn controller!!

  • MrVux007

    Hopefully people will keep everything spoiler free when it comes to the story

    • Tong Ninja

      They might be playing Mission 3 (A Hero’s Way) which was a main mission that didn’t have any story spoiler cutscenes. Or after they finish playing the demo, it will go to a black screen instead of a cutscene. 🙂

      I doubt Konami can get everyone (the whole public) to sign a NDA. haha

      • MrVux007

        i sure hope so

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      You have way too much faith on mankind my friend.

      It’s going to be a nasty spoiler-fest :'( .

      • MrVux007

        Yea that’s one of my personal cons …I guess it’s time to go,to a desolate island until T PP release XD

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          Indeed. We’ve got start bullying website owners into making spoiler filters for content and comments :P.

  • Yo forget MGS V on the show floor lemme get on that PES 2016 !

    SIKE!!!

    • stocchinet .

      …That’s the wrong game, HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • MeLand127

      Hey, could you tell me from what video this is? because I looked for it and with no luck :/

      • Full video

        • Time to post this again:

          • And ofc it’s blocked in my country THX GEMA SHOUT OUT TO YALL

          • ddmaster

            Will. Never. Get. Old.

        • MeLand127

          you are MAGIC ;D

  • JoJo

    August 7th is my birthday. While I won’t make it to Gamescom, I’m glad some people will get to experience TPP early, if a little jealous.

  • Shalashaska

    Lol .. The day where every mgs fan who cant be at gamescom.. sits in a dark corner in his room to cry.. it comes.

  • Solidus Türk

    i want play lalilulelo with Stefanie Joosten.

  • Tong Ninja

    “KONAMI is going to present two stunning games for the current console generation at the most important consumer exhibition in the world, and further showcases KONAMI’s commitment to bringing AAA-titles to the consumer.”

    XD Funny they say this though. We already know MGSV: TPP and PES 2016, are going to come out this year a long time ago. What about future commitments??

    • MrVux007

      i will remain a cautious optimist on that matter

  • MrVux007

    besides MGSV,what other games are you expecting to see? Mine is Xcom 2, Mad Max and the most beautiful open world game ive seen this gen,Horizon:Zero Dawn(even tho they showed only the trailer with awesome soundtrack)…Guerilla Games didnt disappoint me thus far,and im sure they wont with this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fkg5UVTsKCE

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Shadow fall diss appointed people.didn’t play it thoguh

      • MrVux007

        Killzone series was never popular as a shooter game…S.F. was kinda underrated (IMO)

        • Jonny McLaurine

          killzone isn’t popular? U didn’t buy a ps4 at release did ya? People may have got upset at the last one but 1 and 2 def have a following and there will be another kz and it will sell

          • MrVux007

            popular as COD or Battlefield ? nope..unfortunately people who play FPS games are more atracted to those casual FPS games….and this comes from an Killzone hardcore fan…no the game had mixed popularity on release and still has that … KIllzone 2 was the peak(and people still play the hell out of that multiplayer)…i LOVED playing S.F. on my friends PS4,especially the multiplayer…definately gonna buy it when i get my ps4 🙂

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Oh I c. Though it does have a cult following and there will be another . I beat the ps4 kz. Wasn’t much of a selection during release it was ok

          • MrVux007

            im one of those cultist btw… 😀

    • Alberto Sánchez

      Battlefront, Star Citizen, The Division, Mass Effect Andromeda, Uncharted 4…

      • MrVux007

        from what ive herd Battlefront had mixed reception from E3?idk it looks fabulous to me

        • Braden Gunn

          From what I’ve heard about Battlefront from friends who were fortunate enough to play the Alpha it’s fun but too simple, and vehicles aren’t too great.

          That would probably explain the mixed reception from E3

    • Cobra Commander

      WOW!
      That Horizon Zero Dawn looks amazing! That was the first I have heard of it.
      For some reason it went under my radar. Add that to my list of anticipated games, along with:
      Uncharted 4, Mad Max, Just Cause 3, Ghost Recon Wildlands, The Division, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman 6, Star Wars Battlefront, and X-Com 2.
      (I know Rise of the Tomb Raider will be coming to PS4 next year, here is hoping X-Com 2 does as well. I absolutely loved Enemy Unknown and Enemy Within.)

      • MrVux007

        dude if you like oldy goldy games, you should check out classic Xcom games on PC,those were pretty hard! So far Xcom 2 is the PC exclusive,they may change their mind after some time or not

    • No Place For Hayter

      Horizon was super scripted and over done. But I am still very interested and I want to see how it really plays 🙂

      • MrVux007

        ofc its a gameplay trailer,just like MGSV trailers that were also pretty much scripted…..dont know what you meant about “over done” tho ?

        • No Place For Hayter

          Over done as in to much of it was scripted. The difference between Horizon and TPP is for TPP gameplay demos only the character actions were scripted, what happened in the world, your choices in the world, how the world reacts and looks, is not scripted, it is the game itself. But for Horizon not just the character actions were scripted, the environment the enemy actions and reactions, the players options, choices and the in game character dialogue were all scripted.

          • MrVux007

            well as i said,this is only a trailer,not a gameplay presentation…scriptin is completely normal…for example,Sins of the father trailer was scripted(the gameplay part)

          • I agree with No Place For Hayter that the difference between a scripted and non-scripted gameplay trailer is big (also Sins of the Father is just a trailer which doesn’t show that much of actual gameplay anyway).

            Imagine seeing a gameplay trailer for the game with enemies acting very smart and organized and then playing the game to find out all they do is beeline towards you and firing in front of them and, as soon as you get out of their sight they return to their starting position. It’s obviously a very hyperbolized example but the point stands – the gameplay trailer should be as close to the real thing as possible otherwise it’s just misleading and creates fake hype.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Yes TWD from over kill is the game I’m waiting on. will be gangster. Using Lucile in a payday type environment . Wit zombies and other players

  • Michalien

    I dont know if anybody ever thoguht of this before
    but i guess someone did
    i think quiet may be snakes daughter
    and Eva is her mother
    she looks pretty young
    so 20 yo would work out
    just think about it
    maybe i forgot something that disprooves this
    but maybe theres something to that

    • Raven_Sorrow

      hi, this has been covered here. Snake is sterille. Radiation. 🙂

      • Michalien

        when did this happened?
        i mean the radiation
        shouldnt this also affect the clones?

        • No, but the clones are designed to be sterile, as well as have a shortened lifespan, both for safety reasons.

          • Michalien

            but when was big boss sterilized?

          • Pliskin

            In 1954.

          • Michalien

            can you send me a link where you got this from?

          • Mr.Pony

            MGS3 in a conversation between The Boss and Big Boss where she states that Jack has been in Bikini Atol atomic testing site and like her became sterile.

          • Michalien

            oh
            so there is no chance that she is his daughter?

          • Raven_Sorrow

            “In 1954, Jack was involved in the Bikini Atoll test of the first airborne detonation of a hydrogen bomb. However, unlike most of his friends who were present during the testing who had gotten leukemia, thyroid cancer, or died from the radiation, he did not develop any symptoms at all.[15] However, his exposure to the radiation resulted in him becoming sterile and unable to reproduce naturally.”

          • Michalien

            Unable to reproduce !!!naturally!!
            SO THERE IS A CHANCE

          • Raven_Sorrow

            No, only if its another clone… Like solid snake is son to bigboss and eva too..
            And sorry for the delay, my disqus wasn’t leting me post for some reason

          • Mr.Pony

            Sterilization by radiation would unable in every way artificial or natural reproduction. That why they cloned Big Boss.

          • Michalien

            i see

          • Boldizar

            A.K.A. CLONING

          • ddmaster

            The only plausible way she could be his daughter is if she were somehow cloned from his dna and some gender manipulation was at play. Having said that I don’t see that as very plausible. What would the point be?

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Cant post link here for some reason but go to metalgear wikia under bigboss 😉

          • Ozzman

            Here

          • Ryan Yoder

            To be honest, I cannot recall anywhere in any of the games where it said he was sterile. I’ve combed through the scripts and cannot find where it was said.

          • Kawaii Monster

            Portable Ops he states that he was in the Bikini Atoll tests and he can’t have kids, and it’s mentioned in MGS3

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Thought was bikini atoll in 54

          • Mr.Pony

            The short lifespan was designed from the beginning or was it a cloning flaw because of BB advanced age?

          • It was designed that way. Naomi explains this in Act 2 of MGS4.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            To protect the assets that are bigboss’s genes 😉

          • Mr.Pony

            Oh always thought it was the latter, seemed way more realistic for the time of Les Enfant Terrible just like the cloning of Dolly the sheep with all the deformaties and primitive cloning technique

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Could be both, i think its was not really clarified. Otacon says its BB’s advanced age but i think Naomi says otherwise. The sterile was not an accident, and it is mentioned in Naomi exam on Solid Snake body

          • ddmaster

            Fail safe preventative measures in case of lose of control by the Patriots.

        • Ozzman

          Bikini atoll nuke test

        • Ozzman

          The clones are from Big Boss’s DNA, dr clarc done the changes for getting a perfect result.. So after a couple of failure, solid and liquid were the perfect ones from Eva-and better of them was Solidus from another mother (not Eva), that Solidus was the perfect one

        • Jonny McLaurine

          The bikini atoll. I beleive yes they made the clones sterile also

    • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

      Yea I said the same thing.. They shot me down..

    • Ozzman

      That’s impossible
      Big boss couldn’t produce a child since Bikini atol nuke test project, that’s the first time BB fell into coma
      Maybe Kojima retcon the story and they only slept once at the end of MGS3
      So
      It’s gonna be ridiculous if Quiet would be his daughter
      And don’t forget the chemistry between them too

      I will tatoo Kojima pic on my arm if I see Eva in this game! I miss her so much
      And if Quiet got a crush on snake that would be awesome IF Paz will be alive too
      Triangle of Snake love
      Eva
      Paz
      Quiet
      Somebody give me a time machine and set it on September 1st

      • ddmaster

        Wait a minute, that would be a love square. You’d have to include Snake. Oh shit B, you working hard huh! haha!

        • Ozzman

          :))
          Yeah, I miss the main character, that would be square
          But really, it would be awesome if we see some romance competition in game

    • Solidus Türk

      And whats with the scene in the gameplay videos where she shows her tits to snake?

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Big Boss is infertile :(. Which is why Zero came up with the “Les Enfants Terribles” project and probably why Eva became a surrogate carrying Solid and Liquid.

        Ally Sheedy as Allison Reynolds in The Breakfast Club 1985. I replied 2 days ago but it didn’t stick… is this normal or is my disqus account malfunctioning? O.o

  • Arestras

    Too bad I’m from South America :(… 49 days to go

  • Gatsu

    Now this is amazing news :D! Too bad I can’t go there :O…busy at work. But anyone who are able to attend, have fun ;)!

    It’s not that big of a loss for me though, because my summer holiday starts pretty soon after Gamescom and the only thing left is to chill and wait the few remaining days for full game :).

    I’m hoping it is some limited part of the game, so we avoid getting spoilers close to release.

    • OcelotSilver

      Lucky you . TPP is coming out right when my summer holidays end and school start .

      • Max Colliander

        Same here, start my last course in a long Universityprogram 1 sept, but had ALL july and august vacation. Too bad but playing all others MGS right now. MGS1 did i finnished the same day i started :p

        • Mini gear

          ughhhh, marketing is wasteing our time

        • Jonny McLaurine

          I hate the release for mgs. Wish We already had it. Have a feeling that bcuz of the sept 1st release other games will get the game o year rewards. I mean I wanna play asap but shoulda ha it pop on holiday . We will see though . Because if we even want another mg game the money gotta be right

    • Shalashaska

      Is that you in the pic? Love the beard. So f***ing Boss, man.

  • akumetsu

    how feeling in this moment!! soon
    more gameplay !!

    • ddmaster

      Not too much longer till we ALL get to play…as much as we want. Less than 50 days! Btw the gunplay…priceless!

      • akumetsu

        I actually feel pretty desperate to play and listen awaited project ogre 3 year ago

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I been playing last of us multiplayer few years now. Closest game I have found that works like MGO. It is very similar , mechanics and shit. It is addictive stealth action . Run and gun will get you dead. Best weapon in game is the bow and shot gun pistol if ya good 🙂 played 900 weeks on tlou

        • ddmaster

          The fully maxed out bow has always been my #1 too.

  • Mini gear

    (>;-;)> I want so bad

    Frickin awesome! Hope we get a GC trailer! 😮

    • Tong Ninja

      XD Another trailer?

      Maybe another TV Spot Trailer would be cool! 🙂

      • remember the mgs4 tvspot? 🙂 so sick ha

      • Batzi

        TPP needs a theatrical trailer!

        • ddmaster

          I’d go just to watch the trailer…then leave.

  • Braden Gunn

    Honestly I’m glad I can’t make it, I’d hate to be able to play the game for around 40 minutes, get really into it, and then have a PR Representative kick me off the game and having to wait three extra weeks until I can finally play again.

    • J_muse72

      True, I need to take my time playing this game and Konami doesn’t have much tolerance from me at the moment so it would be a nasty little conflict right there lol

    • Cobra Commander

      I would be trying to pry open the gaming display hoping to find a finished copy. LOL!
      I have been thinking about hiding out around a Gamestop inside a cardboard box and holding up the Fed-Ex guy with a banana.
      I would toss him $60 for the game and maybe a little tip then call D-Horse and make my way toward the helicopter extraction point. :]

  • PsychoMantis18

    “..further showcases KONAMI’s commitment to bringing AAA-titles to the consumer”
    What laughable bull-shit! The only commitment Konami seem to have is to filling their own pockets. They don’t seem to be committed to pleasing their fans or staff, which is particularly shameful as without their creative employees, and the fans that support them, Konami would have nothing. Valve are a company that Konami could learn a lot from, AND I say this Half-Life-Three-less.

    • MrVux007

      yea,im pretty sure MGS would be the same and even better today without KONAMI-s investment money,staff and publishing….

      • PsychoMantis18

        Sorry but I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not…

        (Which controller port are you using?)

        • MrVux007

          i tought it was pretty obvius lol…yes it was sarcasm…you can all diss KONAMI all you want,but lets not forget the other side of the coin….

          • No Place For Hayter

            Konami has never been a good thing for Kojima Productions. They gave them money, but so would any other publisher of corporation, Kojima productions did not simply grab a bunch of staff from Konami, who works at KP is no relation to Konami. And sure Konami publishes the MGS games but how much do they try and sell them? when it comes to marketing they don’t do jack shit outside Japan despite MGS being a global phenomenon.

            So while sure Konami has helped KP and MGS, what they didn’t do and what they did negatively far outweighs any good they did, do you think they would support Kojima or KP if they weren’t doing a game that they wanted? If Kojima wasn’t making a MGS game Konami wouldn’t care and wouldn’t help at all. Konami is simply another corporation that only sees and cares about money but is to stupid to know how to get more of it, IMO see no reason to highlight what little good they did when they have done so much crap.

          • MrVux007

            “They gave them money, but so would any other publisher of corporation” that is highly subjecive,since Kojima was pretty much under the radar before MGS ….

            they are an business firm,just like EA,Activision,etc (which are pretty much notorious when it comes to this kind of stuff)

          • *neutral hi-five*

            Thanks for not making me feel lonely and alone :).

          • Jonny McLaurine

            You think any publisher would of let HK take this long? When having money problems with prof it’s? Which I’d like to know because every mgs game has sold relatively well.
            I mean I could say HK with rockstar would make a better mgs ? We don’t know that. Now your just being a HK fanboy and not looking at logic. Buisness is buisness . They wanna make money as does every other publisher .

          • No Place For Hayter

            Any company would have let Kojima take that long, development time for a good game is usually 3-5 years, only in the past decade has the “yearly development process” became a thing. And yes every company #1 goal is money, but any other company out their is smarter than Konami, and the entire world knows of Kojima and MGS, so it would be harder to find someone who would not fund him than would not.

            ” mean I could say HK with rockstar would make a better mgs ? We don’t know that” Do you mean as publisher or as a developer?

            “Now your just being a HK fanboy and not looking at logic” Are you serious? ok fine, here I go, but before I start I’m going to let you know that was not well thought out, immature, and kind of rude, please try to refrain from insulting people who see things differently in the future. I’m probably the person here who criticizes what Kojima does the most, so creating the crowd of “HL fanboy” is ridicules let alone throwing me into it. Yes I am a fan of HK and his work but please refrain both using the term fan”boy” as if I’m some child whom is creating something from nothing and is retarded, and from using the idea that someone is a fan of something as if it is bad. For example if you are not a fan of HK and his work (why are you here? lol) and I am, it is not “I’m blind because I’m a fan” it is “I know more about the subject because I am a fan and have already explored what is both good and bad about it” do not be so quick to throw me into the crowds of blind stupid fans, as you will find out you are sorely wrong. Not looking at logic? are you series here or just trolling? what was illogical about what I said? and what part made me a blind HK fanboy? Just because you disagree does not mean I’m retarded, your opinion is not fact, neither is mine, but I do not go around telling people they are illogical because I do not agree with them. Also this is kind of a weird rude snide remark to throw into the middle of your comment isn’t it? I missed it the first time I read you comment, lol.

          • PsychoMantis18

            I didn’t think it was obvious as your response, if not sarcastic, is ignorant and misguided. I was trying to give you the benefit of the doubt.

          • MrVux007

            ignorant and misguided….no Sir,im none of that.I like to use something that is called “common sense” since we know almost NOTHING about the whole fiasco,and yet people start pointing fingers at KONAMI,disregarding that maybe Kojima has been in the fault here..I like how an alarming number of people like to act like Konami is this big evil corporation all of a sudden and they want to erase Kojima from existence

            None of us know what happened between them.So don’t judge both sides like one is god and one is big evil

            But then again,its your life and its your opinion.But please,dont back-talk me for being a neutral here.I simply cant and will not point a finger at someone,cuz of an some unconfirmed rumour or just because they like investing and earning money.

          • PsychoMantis18

            I think you need to read up on Konami’s history because when considered in that context, whatever turns out to be the reasoning given to the gaming community, it would be fair to deduce that Konami probably pushed Kojima away.

            This is a good summary:
            http://www.thejimquisition.com/2015/04/the-jimquisition-konami/

          • MrVux007

            Already knew about Konami history,even before i watched the video…still stand by my statement,that people should use “common sense” before pointing fingers in this whole fiasco…each publishing house had it uprises and downfalls,but lets not forget that usually those publishing houses have most of the risk on their backs financially since its their investment money(not the game development companies,in this case a sub-company under the name of Kojima Productions,that is under Konami ownership,and most of its staff is from Konami)..

          • PsychoMantis18

            ..Well if you know abit about Konami’s history you should surely see that “common sense” would be to assume that the company is probably at fault in some shape, way or form.

          • MrVux007

            What you are talking about is “doubt”…which is complete opposite of “knowing”…it’s one thing to say “Hm maybe Konami is at fault in here,due to their history” n other is “Yep Konami did it,I know it cuz look at all of this Solid evidence”…people are doing the latter based on rumors and Konami bad decision making which overshadowed their good decision making …and that is wise to use common sense if you don’t have anything solid that can proove their ……”evil deeds” lol but knowing how biased some people are they will defend something/someone even if they are in the wrong…opinions are the things that drive people crazy these days on internet,so I’d rather not have one

          • Jonny McLaurine

            It’s all guessing . What is fact in there?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Call it what ya want but it’s truth . How many big game producers let those developers do whatever they want without time constraint? To quick to diss a company , when we dot know what happened and prolly will never know because it don’t concern us. Bet Kojima has to sign a NDA before leaving

      • Jonny McLaurine

        If Konami didn’t pay you wouldn’t have mgs.

        • MrVux007

          no crap? and where did i say otherwise(beside my sarcastic comment?)

  • J_muse72

    How about a public download BETA on PSN,XBOX Live and Steam.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      for MGO would made sense 😉

      • J_muse72

        It would make complete sense. I would love to get my hands on the improved controls over GZ. Although I am not complaining about GZs controls and handling.

      • Solid Snakes Revenge

        They should give us a beta for mgo. They did with the last one and this one they said they would be trying different things out. It would only make sense to get a bunch of feedback before it’s released. Hopefully they don’t do what gtav did and release it like a month after the drop date. Although I dont see me playing online til I beat the story.

        • J_muse72

          I agree with you. I most likely won’t be playing MGO for a while until I beat the story which should take me a fee months maybe. Unless MGO is implemented into the story in some way then maybe.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            You will be left behind heh. I’ll be in MGO as soon as possible. I have a feeling that MGO ties into the game if ya choose. They said you don’t have to play online but they also said u can miss quiet and buddies. So not hard to believe tht MGO will tie in and add story

  • The Hell Master

    If this was happening last year, I’d be extremely envious of the people attending GamesCom to play MGSV with such a long crucial wait.
    However, seeing as how it’s only a 4 week gap from release. I don’t care one bit. =P

  • Venom-Snake

    Shocked 🙁

    • Raven_Sorrow

      i hate that… and i’ll hate it even more if those CE exclusive in-game items be made available to other versions for a COST…

      • Venom-Snake

        Actually, it would be unfair if they make it for free, they kinda pay for it as well

        • Raven_Sorrow

          it would not be unfair if the reward for CE was instant access to the items against the other versions that would have to unlock them over the course of the game

          • Venom-Snake

            I can’t agree more, you are amazing 🙂

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Btw, welcome 🙂

      • No Place For Hayter

        While I agree with your sentiment, the in game items one gets from the CE are pretty pointless and frivolous.

        Even though in in game items the CE gets purely pointless and don’t amount to nothing, I agree and hate the idea of putting such things into a CE, a CE should be about large artbooks, complete soundtracks, figures, collectibles, PHYSICAL and important to the game bonuses, not frivolous digital trash that is supposed to make the money I spend on such a thing feel worth it, I hate the pointless padding of CE with digital trash that only serves to make those who don’t have it feel left out when it isn’t anything anyway. And don’t even get me started on pre-order dlc bonuses and retailer exclusive pre-order dlc bonuses, lol.

        • ddmaster

          To be honest when I pre-ordered my ps4 CE I didn’t even notice any kind of digital bonuses. I was too focused on the 1/2 scale arm and the behind the scenes bluray. But the biggest thing of all was just knowing it was a CE of THE LAST MGS game made by Kojima-San himself. I want to this series to go out with a bang for me. I say go out since Kojima-San is leaving therefore it might as well be over.

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          Lol? Welcome to the wonderful day-one patches, day-one DLC, day-one ridiculous bugs of the digital age.

          Remember when a game was actually finished when it came out 🙂 ?

          Anyways, you shouldn’t sweat over cosmetic items ;).

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah I remember the glories days of developers having to release a finished product, lol, one thing is for sure, TPP will not be a mess, they are quality and have never released a broken game of any sort. I’m so looking forward to TPP, a true quality game we haven’t seen in a while 😉

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            True, I have high hopes for TPP as well :).
            The most terrible thing I’m expecting from TPP is a delayed MGO launch like what happened with MGS4.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Or a glitch in games that never ever get fixed. Now that’s not a problem. Works both ways. Some of ya do remember past but how many glitches and bugs in old games. Answer alot

          • No Place For Hayter

            Sure works both ways, but games never needed to be patched before, now that developers can send out patches the games they have released have drastically decreased in technical quality. I mean why even bother pointing out “it works both ways”? I was merely pointing out that since patches have become a thing, the quality of released products have decreased, no reason in arguing that. Another point is developers HAD to put effort into polishing their games as any bugs would stay there forever, lets just say anyone worth their salt did not release a broken game back in the day, don’t even try and make it sound like the now is better then the back then.

      • Chem

        i agree with you guys, CE shouldn’t have in game content, i my opinion the bonus must be limited to artbooks and stuff like that, but at least in this case those items are pointless, i mean a golden pistol a shield and a MG REX helmet? even if i buy the collector edition i don’t think that i will be using any of those, but that’s my personal choice, maybe some people want to go shooting guys with a rifle made of gold like a middle east dictator lol

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        That’s probably what’s going to happen.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Idc about that stuff. Does it make game easier or give a advantage in MGO . Then I would care. P2P sucks . I don’t waste cash. Work to hard to have what I got

    • Javier

      When they talked about microtransactions they said “the game experience is the same if you pay or not”. If they put unique items in the collectors edition I’m never going to have the 100% of the game. I want to unlock everything, even if I won’t use a lot of items. I’m not going to buy the ce edition just for that, anyway it won’t come in to my country.

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      Usually DLC items like those are eventually released as separate DLC for everyone to buy. Never seen “premium cosmetic items” to be unlockable in recent games.

        I don’t want any surprises ruined!

    • hunner

      Same. Batman Arkham Knight was my most anticipated game alongside MGS V and i had a major plot twist spoiled 🙁

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Media blackout it is then. I know it hurts but sure hurts a lot less than playing the game a knowing exactly what’s going to happen. It just sucks the excitement out of the game.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        How did that happen? I played batman for 3 days and beat it. Then went online to see an get some help on some of the side quests

        • hunner

          I watched the ign review which came out before the game released. They spoiled the return of you know who

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Oh I didn’t know that. Would of been bs I agree. Though I kinda figured u know who would return

    • Jonny McLaurine

      I’m trying to understand your logic. Have you read any of nyxus articles? Or watch yong vids ? It’s the same in my opinion . I guess I just don’t understand

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        I’ve made a lengthy post on what I consider spoilers and what I don’t here: http://disq.us/8o094o
        I’ve read a lot of Nyxus’ articles but I’ve been avoiding more and more of them lately.
        In short, if anyone can play the game as they please then at least the first 20h of the game will described in detail by several people.
        I like to discover stuff in games for myself, I’d hate to spend the first 20h of the game or so knowing exactly what’s going to happen, it’s no fun like that.

        • Jonny McLaurine

            I don’t expect anyone to remember any posts made here, nobody should ask you to spend more time here (or anywhere for that matter) than you can or want. It’s your life, you live it as you see fit :).

            I don’t consider myself old and I can’t remember everything posted here.

            I’m not attacking you man ;). You simply asked what my logic was and I was trying to tell you.

            I know that I can be really picky when it comes to spoilers and my definition of spoilers is somewhat messed up. I remember that subject coming up recently and that I had written a long post about it so I browsed my disqus history until I found my post and sent you the link ;).

            Then I tried to summarize it so that you didn’t had to read everything I had written ;).

    Hey, not sure if this is appropriate or not but I just finished an E3 metal medley video. I love everyone on this site, it’s my favorite community so I thought I’d see what you all think?

    I forgot to put in an MGS cover by the way 🙁 the video was getting too long and it’s already been a month since E3. Still, The Last Guardian is in there (I did a metal version of the score) and so is Horizon and Doom and Final Fantasy 7. So tell me what you think and stuff please!

    edit: Woops, just realized, this looks like spam. Hopefully enough of you here know me from my regular comments to know it’s not.

    Oh and I know there are sync issues, I made Sony Vegas crash 5 times in a row from having too many channels, it’s fucked with the sync in places.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      i gave like to the Metal, but let the disappointment burn you on leaving MGS out -.-

      • Edward Wokhands

        Thanks for replying :p can I ask which one you liked the most?

        I disappointed myself actually. It was taking too long to make though, I started it like maybe a week or 2 after E3 and then bought a camera like a week and a half ago. All of E3’s games would have been released by the time I finished it if I did all the games I wanted to!

        I think doing so many different shots made it take way longer than it should have. It should’ve released nearer E3. I WAS planning on doing the whoooAAAAAaaooooo “phantom cigar” theme, metal version but it didn’t sound right at the time. Plus, figuring out the score to Last Guardian took like 4 hours.

        Actually, I’m going to start working on giving MGS 5 it’s own video today.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          Good XD My favorite was “the last guardian” but after the intro xP i also liked the ballad right before “the last guardian”, Doom was pretty cool too. Keep on shredding 🙂

          • Edward Wokhands

            Awesome! Thanks! I actually enjoyed playing Last Guardian the most. Figuring it out was pretty fun. You should be my first subscriber. :p

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Great music brother! How did you record everything?

      • Edward Wokhands

        Thanks! Certain parts are miked with an SM57. You can see it at the start of Final Fantasy 7 on the glockenspiel. Some guitars are just a cheap Marshall, I think some of the FF7 ones. The rest is basically what you see in the video, those 2 guitars and bass plugged direct into a Scarlett 2i4 interface. Then it’s into Guitar Rig then the usual EQ-ing of guitars/bass/drums to stop everything sounding muddy. I kind of skimped on the EQ though, I could’ve got it sounding better but it was getting too much, just in FF7 there were around 12 guitars.

        The piano is the Yamaha plugged in USB into Garritan Orchestra and any synthy sounds are the little midi keyboard into various VSTs and guitars plugged into Guitar Rig, then the effects are controlled with the little midi controller afterwards. Oh and the drums were played on that too then I added some extra cymbal hits and stuff.

        If you really like it could you please share it? Post it somewhere? It’s got almost no views which is pretty depressing after all the work put into it.

        I’m going to do a metal MGS tribute next I think.

        • ObsessedGeorge

          It sounds way better than what l recorded that’s for sure. 🙂 I mainly play electric guitar bit l can play bass guitar and drums. Basicaly my friend (drummer) and l have some songs we had written when we were a band and now after all these years l decided to record them for the first time in “better” quality than the old rehearshal recording we had. It turned out great if you take into consideration the equipment l used.

          I borrowed an electronic drum set which l used with a stereo jack cable into my laptop to record with Audacity, lt had the exact same quality the drums produce. Then l used my 60watt Line 6 Spider amp for the electric guitar and bass guitar recording. Again connected to my laptop the same way and in Audacity. Last but not least, my gaming headset was used for the vocals. A little fix here and there, some echo and some thrash metal magic and voila! I’m happy with the end result. 😀

          • Edward Wokhands

            It all comes down to EQ. When you get each instrument on it’s own it doesn’t sound too good. Try going back to your recordings and giving the guitars a “space” in EQ. So, say your bass takes up from 50-120Hz you’d take your guitars and completely mute those frequencies so they don’t overlap. I was surprised at how big the difference can end up.

            That actually sounds like my old setup! I used to use a gaming headset duct taped to the front of my amp! In my opinion you can get decent sound from almost any equipment as long as you play with it for long enough. Especially with metal. I had a Line 6 and loved it until it broke.

            You should upload your recordings!

    • scarecrow

      Nice Jag :3

      • Edward Wokhands

        I love it. It’s seriously the most versatile guitar I’ve ever played. I got it pretty damn cheap on ebay. You can go from Telecast to Strat to ESP/metal sounds. You play? What guitar do you have?

        • scarecrow

          Yes I do! I don’t have an electric guitar 🙁 just a classic acoustic fender guitar, but I want one and I love Jags/JM, especially Jazzmasters! It’s my fav guitar 🙂

          • Edward Wokhands

            Cool. Yeah, they’re seriously underrated guitars. How’s the action on the acoustic? I’m looking for a decent steal string at the moment.

            Off topic, could you do me a giant favor and tell me what you think of this Star Wars cover? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFoB0oSPgbg

            It’s absurdly hard to get anyone to check out your work online.

          • scarecrow

            Yeah, why not? I will, check out on YouTube, i’m the one with the DD picture haha.

            About the action, I forgot to say that my guitar uses nylon strings so I don’t know so much about steel string guitars, but for a Fender guitar the action is extremely nice in comparison to another guitars. Nowadays, Fender acoustics are made in Indonesia, but they’re still nice guitars, nice feel, nice action.

            I hope this helps 😀

          • Edward Wokhands

            Hehe, I had a feeling it was somebody from this site. :p

            A nylon string Fender? 😮 I dare you to send it to me right now… ¬_¬ >_> Yeah, most Fenders are great, even a lot of Squires are good quality. I think I’ve only ever played one bad Squire.

  • glitchbomb

    Uhg. Apparently the cover for TPP has “officially been finalized ” and there is no KOJIMA anywhere on the cover. We all suspected it but i had a sliver of hope. Guess we will end up having to really make our own covers as planned.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, we practically already knew, there are so many obvious things wrong with that I’m not even going to start, I don’t even hate Konami any further for it, they are retarded and immature and I didn’t need this to never buy one of their products ever again, though it still blows, and honestly surprises me that they can remove the name of the company that made the game or who made it? Like really, when someone picks up the game and wonders who made it they won’t get an answer on the box, this whole thing feels illegal as all hell, but probably isn’t.

      Not only will I be making my own cover, but i will be shredding the one with Konami’s name on it ritual style 🙂

      • I guess it makes sense from where they’re standing. What’s the point in promoting a brand that’s being disbanded? It’s just wasted money. And let’s be honest, how many people really are going to boycott Konami for this? Only the most hardcore MGS fans. And I could bet real money that majority of people who right now write emotional posts saying they’ll never buy another Konami game will not do as they say. This kind of bad press is completely irrelevant sales-wise in the grand scope of things.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          It’s not a brand, it’s a signature.. How would you feel if you have written a series of books with your name on the cover and on your last epic the publisher takes out your name from its cover? Who created the game? Hideo Kojima. Who made the game? Kojima Productions. So why would their names be taken out?

          • I am afraid that Kojima Productions logo well fits under the definition of a brand but it isn’t really important if this word fits or not. What is important is that this is piece of information that identifies a no longer existing group has no market value for Konami and that’s the reason they’re removing it. They want new MGS players to associate MGS with Konami, not with Kojima Productions.

            Your question makes me think that you interpreted my comment as some kind of praise of Konami. Not at all, I think it’s a shitty thing to do to a group of people who created an amazing thing like that. Nevertheless the point still stands that from a marketing perspective and financial perspective the value of keeping this logo (making some fans happy but people think MGS == Kojima) is lower than the value of removing it (making some fans angry but people think MGS == Konami). Or, at the very least, that’s my speculation for why they’re doing it because it makes sense.

          • Mini gear

            By signature I think he meant the a hideo kojima game part

          • Ah, might be. I was referring to the “Kojima Productions” logo. Still, the “Hideo Kojima game” signature removal is caused by the same things as I said above. They didn’t do it out of spite or anything, it’s just marketing and money. I wish they didn’t do it but I’d rather reserve my final judgement until more is known about the whole issue.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah it always helps when Konami hides everything. If they keep that crap up I will just assume the worst of them, if they aren’t willing to tell us than it is not worth it to give them the benefit of the doubt when they are the ones hiding the facts we don’t know, and if it is personal we will never know anything.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I’m not trying to be rude but why would Konami or Kojima tell any of us te facts? That got nothing todo with us. All we do is purchase a product , which Konami owns and HK is jus a employee and come December as far as we know will not be anymore. So his name is in credits but this will be a Konami game. It makes sense logically, for buisness. Idk maybe I have a diff view on this because my wife is a lawyer for gaming

          • No Place For Hayter

            From a cold business prospective sure, but Konami is being stupid about, if they were even remotely smart about their business they would tell people what was going on and why, because that way they would not have rumors floating around, all the silence is getting Konami is really bad press and a really bad image, if what was going on wasn’t bad looking for Konami than there would only be positive repercussions for telling people what is going on. Hiding all of this is only bad for Konami and it would look both good and professional if Konami would tell people. It is not our business but it sure as heck decides whether I’m buying anything from them ever again and thus not telling us effects their business.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            I never intended to attack you on any form 😉 I’m just saying that, and i’m agreeing with you, for Konami it’s about money, for me it’s about Authors credit. And you are wrong about one thing: They still exist, their contracts expire in December. But, most importantly, they existed when the game was made. They made it! So their name should be on it. It wouldn’t cost anything more to Konami to leave the names on the cover. If they leave the names there, they wouldn’t be selling brands, they would be crediting people. I’m not saying your wrong on this, you are very accurate on the financial point! But there is a side to this that is not about the money. The sentimental part. An artistic creation as two owner-ships, the exploration rights (Konami’s) and the authors rights (Kojima Productions) and this last one has no financial importance, its a signature that states o created it. So why is Konami trying to erase it. They cant remove the credits in-game so why the trouble of removing from a simple cover? It’s NOT appropriation, it’s trying to erase. I just think its malice thats all. I’m not ranting at you i’m just sharing my frustration with you 😛 please dont hate me

          • I don’t hate you, I jut try to limit my emoticons ;). I absolutely didn’t feel attacked or anything!

            I see where you’re going and yea, I agree that from fans’ point of view (or even POV of the creators) it would be *really awful nice* to keep those things to give a honor to those who made the game.

            I just disagree with you on the point that keeping/removing it makes no financial difference. Not in the short run but I think, and I may only stipulate as for what it’s worth it might actually just be a result of inside politics, it all boils down to brand awareness[1]. It’s kinda a proof that Konami does want to continue making MGS games because they want players to think “This KONAMI game is uber cool” not “This Kojima Productions game is uber cool”. I am not very well versed in PR and marketing but I am sure there are at the very least people capable of convincing higher-ups that this is worth real money. Pretty sure there are studied which show a financial correlation for cases like this.

            At least I hope that’s the reason, I’d rather think people did this because they want to keep the company profitable and not because they’re buttholes :P.

            “And you are wrong about one thing: They still exist, their contracts expire in December. But, most importantly, they existed when the game was made.” You are correct of course! I meant to say that from the POV of a company, a team which is going to be soon disbanded is basically not something to care about.

            Alright, I should get back to work now :P.

        • No Place For Hayter

          They aren’t promoting a brand, it is a company that developed the game, it’s like removing the authors name off of a book he wrote. Do re-released games have all the now defunct companies that developed it removed? no, because it is not about promoting a brand (which they aren’t) it is about who made the game, it does not matter when they made it or even if they still exist, a dead author does not have his name pulled off of his books.

          And you seem to be greatly underestimating peoples dislike for Konami, it has nothing to do with being a fan of MGS it is to do with how rude and immature they are being about this whole thing, Nobody likes it and a lot of people are not ever going to buy from them again (me included, that is as cold emotionless as you can get, I really don’t care, I’m not heated I just except who they are and decide to never buy from them again) I mean honestly it is not that hard to never buy anything Konami ever again, the only things they had were Castlevania and MGS, and Silent Hill and since lords of shadows Castlevania has been garbage and I haven’t liked silent hill games in a long time and the best horror game we were going to receive for a lone time was cancelled by none other than Konami themselves and now that Kojima and his team are gone I do not care about their next MGS game, so I don’t even have to try to not buy anything of theirs, you really think people are dying so badly yo buy Konami games that they will forget the crap they have been pulling and buy from them again? No, never. I think you are greatly confusing the casual mobile crowd with the gaming crowd, casual people couldn’t care less about who makes their games and why and what they have done and how much money they are sqeezing out of them, but gamers Do care, we aren’t going to simply forgot gaming isn’t a casual thing for us, it is a hobby something we care about and get invested in, we aren’t simply going say “oh ok I’ll buy Konami again” it makes no sense, I mean I will be honest big MGS fans will be the most dedicated to never buying Konami ever again, but the rest of the industry and the rest of the people are also seeing this and are thinking the same thing. While I agree that it will not effect Konami greatly as they are pulling out of gaming anyway because they make more money else where, you are misunderstanding the people who see this and how they react, they aren’t children who are throwing a fit and will feel ok later and buy more Konami they are people whom love what they play and care about it and do not stand for the kind of bullshit that Konami is throwing around, we do not like and will not support it. The best we hope for is Konami leaving gaming altogether so we don’t have to put up with their crap alone with the rest of the corporations. This isn’t one bad thing for something minor this has been a string of really bad choices and ideas which will leave a lasting impression, I mean like I said they don’t have much in the way of gaming anymore anyway. By the string of bad choices they have made many people made, specifically fans of MGS fans of SH, but also the everyone else who has seen their choices, I mean really after the crap they have been pulling is anybody going to associate anything positive with Konami anymore?

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Man that was long and hard (that’s what she said) 😉 But i second it. My humble opinion is that corporations f*ck up when they go after the money. But i don’t even blame them… i blame piracy that makes game corporations go after money in other bullsh+t ways like dlc’s, microtransactions, pulling out all together and focusing on mobile etc… but taking a name off?!.. that’s desperate in the better perspective.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, lol, I find it ironically hilarious how corporations and the people whom run them are to stupid to see how to make the most of what they got, lol, they are king of misunderstanding things and bending whatever they see into what they want without even realizing they are doing it, lol.

          • Let me argue your points one by one :).

            “They aren’t promoting a brand, it is a company that developed the game…” I admit I didn’t realize it was actually a separate, subsidiary company. As I said a couple of times before, from Konami’s point of view it’s promoting a brand. Any name other than Konami which appears on the box or doing the starting splashes or on the title screen is a brand, whether it is “Kojima Production”, “Hideo Kojima game” or anything else and it’s logical that they don’t want to promote something that won’t bring them any money in the future. If it was the last Konami’s game it wouldn’t really matter because they wouldn’t have long-term goals. Everything else I pretty much agree on :).

            “And you seem to be greatly underestimating peoples dislike for Konami” Might be! I was specifically thinking about people who say that this specific Konami action will make them not buy any Konami thing ever again, but I didn’t think that this might be the final straw for some. In this case sure, I can see some people boycotting the company but, nevertheless, I am fairly sure a lot of them are just jumping the bandwagon of hate and in a few weeks they’ll forget about all of this and buy another Konami game. I’ve known people like that and I’ve seen people like this on the internet. Maybe I am a bit more cynical in this case :P.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yea, from Konami’s point of view it has a reason. And yeah a lot of people will forgive Konami in a week, just don’t forget that there is also a large portion of people whom won’t, lol.

            Despite not always being positive it is always best to be cynical about the dumb masses, unless they prove otherwise best to assume the worst from them until otherwise, lol.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Difference with a book is that the man or woman write whole book by themselves . Then once product is done they fin publisher. Koji pro had to borrow a lot of money to do this. Konami payed Kojima played. Makes sense

          • No Place For Hayter

            Kojima sticks his name on his games “A Hideo Kojima game” because it is in his vision and he is taking responsibility for everything that it is, so being the writer of a book works. Also keep in mind do you give credit to or even think about the guy whom pays an artists to paint him a picture? “Paint me a picture you are famous!” “OK” so the buyer gets a painting, but has nothing to do with it other than he payed for it. This is of course if I am understanding your comment correctly >.<

        • Jonny McLaurine

          I agree 100% no one will not buy this because of no HK on box or hatter snake . That’s just bad fanboy ism . HK and team said pls don’t boycott but this bitch so we can get out and do own thing

      • Jonny McLaurine

        i think yall reading to much into this. HK is in credits for every mission. Lol. All Konami doing is freeing HK from mgs. Which is what he wanted right? Cuz the next metal gear or metal get solid will be a different group. Konami will just pay someone else. Could be good or bad. Who knows . The gaming industry is cutthroat. Has to be to be able to compete. I mean literally all big companies do this shit. Nothing illegal or HK would sue. So let it ride and let’s get HK to the west for a new ip

        • No Place For Hayter

          I agree. But companies don’t always do this, when was the last time you saw a publisher dismantle a huge popular game developer? or literally remove the logo and name of that company from the game case? Though of course it isn’t illegal, I just wish it was, these companies are given to much free reign to be as cold and ruthless as possible, they support the industry but they don’t care about it. I’m not to sure about bringing Kojima out west, I just hope he lands some place good with his KP team, fingers crossed.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Man Kojima name is on every mission from what I hear in credits. You are really gonna make a cover? That’s alil overboard in my opinion. Idk. I just have to ask why? You must have a lot of free time on your hands

      • glitchbomb

        To my knowledge every other mgs has his name on it. TBH people have been planning for this from a while back and already have covers made. Doesn’t take much time to print one out. The one they are currently using is pretty ugly.

  • Ravenous

    Hey Nyxus!
    Apparently there’s going to be a pre-show for MGSV for Gamescom, hosted by Geoff Keighley and Kojima will be interviewed!

    Link here: http://youtu.be/3Ikht6mYSyA

    I don’t speak French, so I have no idea what they are saying, but it could be worth looking into 🙂

    Just ignore the whole pythonselkan-thing, I admit to being curious, but saw the info about the pre-show in the first three seconds

  • MAG V Supreme

    I had a issue with journalists preview guys, if it was me, i’d organize a group and tell everyone to pick a focus. One person on mother base, another on finding cassette tapes, one doing all side ops, so on and so on. That way later they compile all evidence and have a real full story to tell. Every preview has been mainly the same. As for this event beyond going to it there isnt much new news to come from a 30 to a hour play thru. Unless a miracle happens and they let us play a new section. Which isnt happening. We might get a trailer at best. And some mgo gameplay. Basically move along nothing to see here. Until another announcement for trailer so something. Whoever is going, enjoy and hit up all mgs guys so they drop new news if there is any beyind your excitement of playing it yourself.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Good idea but there are two problems.

      1) They will all have to go through a pretty big core gameplay to unlock their chosen paths so the information would not be as spread out as one might think.

      2) Good luck, given the chance to play TPP I’m not sure anybody would follow a rule like that, lol.

      • MAG V Supreme

        They previewed 16 hours for the #mgsvpreview event, more than enough time to do it but its over. Just a idea if i was journalist. 45 days to ago and im shutting down all social media sites until i finish mgsv.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      They only was able to say so much lol NDA. So yea most reviews were the same

      • MAG V Supreme

        There is alot of small details within different parts. The motherbase alone, all tapes, how the map works and plays. Story co i ld be told but things like how no soldiers randomly spawn and they come from other bases. Details like that are really cool and useful. Its over with. Js

  • Sockerfri

    Ohi, guys! Im new to this forum, and Im not sure where to post questions regarding MGSV: TPP; So Ill just throw one out here, if thats okay with you.

    Im looking around the interwebs where to purchase the said title, and I found that PSN offers a decent deal – with the bundle content and such.

    Now, my question is as follows: Will purchases through PSN feature any type of pre-download?

    I mean, it would be super to play the game as soon as it comes out. I assume that would be september 1st 00.01.

    • vic boss

      Usually game starts to preload the last Sunday before it comes out, and unlocks as soon as the time hits 00:00 on September 1st. Although with some games like the Witcher 3 , it unlocks one day or two before it officially comes out.

      • Chem

        really? thanks to Sockerfri for asking this, and thank you vic boss for answer, i have never pre ordered any game in the PSN, y pre ordered TPP because i want to play as soon as possible but im afraid that my internet sucks and i don’t know how much time is gonna take to download the game, somo are you sure that the game can be downloaded days before it’s release?

        • vic boss

          Where do you live tho? Cause for US , the game does not unlock until it’s 12 o clock on the time zone of new york (not sure which one is it ) where I live games unlock at 10 , and gamestop also starts to give them out at 10. And yes for sure the game starts downloading the last Sunday before it comes out.

          • Chem

            i’m from Venezuela but i pre ordered the game in my U.S PSN account, thanks again for the info, im glad to know that i’ll be able to start downloading the game early and play in september 1st.

      • Sockerfri

        Thanks for replying, mate! I may just put my trust into PSNs hands…!

      • Jonny McLaurine

        I always buy physical copies. Call me old fashioned but having something in my hand means it’s mine haha

      Welcome welcome, you wouldn’t happen to be swedish would you, Sugarfree?

      Can’t say about the preloading, I’m getting a retail-copy from a midnight release if possible 🙂

      • Sockerfri

        Norwegian. Its close enough, tho! 🙂
        I came up with the name for a World of Warcraft-character ages ago. Ironically, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year later. Its now my gamer-tag.

      WELCOME! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY! Are you ready for revenge? seems you are like the rest of us, WANT IT ASAP, lol, I don’t have the answer to your question, but it looks like Vic Boss does 😉

      I might buy another copy off of PSN simply because I am paranoid that I will not get my game shipment on release day, they do send it out early so I do get it on release but I’m still worried, lol. I only have a week vacation to enjoy TPP full time, so I want to spend as much of that week playing TPP as possible and get most of it done and cool down to get 100% after that week, lol.

      • Solid Snakes Revenge

        I’m so scared about it also. My receipt says est. Delivery Wed 9/9- Wed 9/16. But below it says pre release ships 9/1/15. I have no clue what to expect. I better get my game by the 2nd or I ‘ll be nuclear!

        • No Place For Hayter

          If you have lots of money just lying around asking to be spent, I kind of recommend buying a backup copy for release day, though I really do hate the idea of giving Konami any money, ugh choices choices. The hardest wait will be from midnight release to the point where we start the game, those hours (or even a few days for some which might be me 🙁 will be longer than the 3 year wait, lol.

          • Solid Snakes Revenge

            I’m broke as shit right now haha. I guess we ‘ll see how the bank account looks like towards the end of August. I agree I’m not really tryin to give konami another sale but for metal gear you gotta do what u gotta do.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            That’s why I pay off games asap because ya never know when something will happen an make u wait to be able to afford gam

          • Solid Snakes Revenge

            Yeah I try and take that approach usually when I can afford it. Although waiting has saved me money on a few games the latest being bloodborne. Hopefully I can pay off Mario maker by Sept 11th.

        • vic boss

          I guess you preordered from gamestop no? I’m in the same boat as you , exactly as you are my receipt also says those dates, but I send it to the store and it said 3-5 day shipping , so I hope that if it ships on 09/01 it arrives at least on Friday 09/04 but idk if I’ll wait or not. I want to buy one day one edition from gamestop but idk if I’ll be able to return it for the full price.

          • Solid Snakes Revenge

            Yeah I did. I think I remember the guy said I couldn’t send it to the store for some reason though. I think I’m gonna call them tomorrow and see if I can get any info on it and why it says the dates it does.

          • Mauricio Acosta

            Well to maybe raise up your spirits. I also preordered from GameStop store to home and the manager told me that it is a very good chance that it will arrive either on 9/01 or before!

      • H’m

        no midnight release in your area, hope we get one

        Only 1 week to finish the game?

      Welcome to the party here at MGI.

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      Welcome to the party paaaalll! It would make sense that it downloads sooner so you can play it at midnight but I’m not sure. Other games in the past have done it and this is a MUCH bigger title so I believe it will.

      WOAH. Thanks for all the nice responses and warm welcomes! Ill be looking forward to staying here, indeed!

      I think I got the answers I needed, and I may purchase it through PSN. However, Im not all decided as of yet. I may just buy a physical copy as well!

      Oh, and Im norwegian btw. Tho the swedish version of “sugarfree” is much cuter than the norwegian one. 🙂

    Who wants to fly to a conference for spoilers ?! Weeeeeaakk…

    • BurntFM

      Y’know, I’m not to sure about that. You know how they made E3 specific missions where the first story missions had the “???????” on the mission select and had custom MB and Buddy levels? They could do the same for this camescom where they let people play the mission they’ve been showing and It wouldn’t be spoilers because we’ve seen that mission a bunch of times.

  • thetrooper1989
    • Eugene Voldo

      But…. Konami made this too! Not Kojima himself, but Kojima Productions which was a wholly owned subsidiary of Konami. So this comic is not entirely correct. It’s almost like painter saying “My right hand created this oil-painting” and in a way it’s true because the hand was holding a brush, but in reality it takes more than hand to create something. And it takes more than just Hideo Kojima to create something big like MGSV: The Phantom Pain.

      • Ravenous

        But…wouldn’t it be more correct if Kojima is the painter, Kojima Productions is the right hand, and Konami is the painters bitchy landlord? XD

        • Andrea Feletti

          Definitely more correct 😉

        • Eugene Voldo

          Heh, maybe or maybe not 😀
          In my eyes Hideo Kojima is a brush, Kojima Productions is a hand and Konami is a painter, because without Konami there wouldn’t be Metal Gear as we know it at all. But that’s just my opinion.

          • No Place For Hayter

            We probably would not have MGS without Konami yeah, but they are not responsible for any quality, thought, or effort that went into the game, so within this scenario Konami is the guy that buys the painting supplies for Kojima to paint with, they have nothing to do with how Kojima uses those supplies or what he paints, they just act as a middleman between the players and Kojima so he can make his games, though they haven’t been the greatest and so I’m glad Kojima isn’t working under them anymore, but I’m worried that Kojima might end up some place worse.

          • Eugene Voldo

            Fair enough. But I will try to explain why I see situation differently and why I don’t think that Kojima is a painter in that particular analogy. First of all, which entity’s will are more dominant in relation to Metal Gear existence? HK, KP or Konami? Of course, it’s Konami’s will and corporate goal to make more money from the franchise. Neither HK nor KP, since there are not autonomous bodies. Then who is the hand? Obviously KP since it is a wholly owned subsidiary of Konami. Painter, you know, controls his own hand and it’s a painter who commands the hand, not the other. So Hideo Kojima is a brush. And for any painter the quality of brush is important, but not important enough to stop creating new paintings. And if the painter thinks that brush is not good anymore, he just goes to the shop and buys a new one.

            As for your line of thinking about Kojima’s future in game industry, I’m with you on this. Kojima has a pretty cloudy future. Remember what happened to Hironobu Sakaguchi, Final Fantasy creator? He was THE rockstar of the game industry in 2000, but after leaving Square Enix he fell from grace. Now he is working on some small (and in my opinion awful) mobile games. Sad story 🙁

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I’m wit u there. Though I think HK will be ok I hope. Hope he comes to the west

          • Jonny McLaurine

            It would be more accurate to look at Konami as the bank. Kojima as the man who is getting loan to build huge condos and we are the people who move in. To Konami , Kojima defaulted and now Konami is running the condo! Get it? HK maybe made game with team but he didn’t pay the salaries and pay for supplies. That’s big konami

          • Eugene Voldo

            I get it. That’s a perfect analogy! Defiantly better than mine.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            It’s all good just we as people have to remember to not let the politics affect us. If a game is good , let us pay whoever releases it. We all know that HK made it and I hope he is given what is needed to make another great IP. He was paid for his services an has completed the task they needed.
            That’s the way I look at it.

    • No Place For Hayter

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          YEAH!good idea

  • Venom_Sina

    Hey guys.How You doin’?If you have the time,check this out.It’s from our neighbors!!! It’s not a bad read:

    http://thesnakesoup.org/editorial-articles/hideo-kojima-gamings-auteur-deserves-credited/

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, read that and agree, Gaming is still coming into its own. Here is article about the nature of gaming.

      http://hitboxteam.com/designing-game-narrative

      This of course also shows how good Kojima is (the article does not mention him at all) because of the nature of how Kojima makes his games, despite still being split into “cutscene” and “gameplay” he has always been the best of both worlds and seamless points between them, Kojima makes his story along with what the game will be and how it will play, the gameplay and your choices and methods all play into the story and its theme just like how the story plays into the gameplay and your world you play in, making them inseparable and incredibly important to each other.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Depending on how this News evolves will determine whether is On/Off-Topic.

    Apparently Ubisoft Toronto, the Studio behind Splinter Cell: Blacklist is looking for, Quote “New Sr. Game Designer with 3Cs expertise on a new IP here @UbisoftToronto – Must have AAA game exp.”
    https://twitter.com/hholmes79/status/620994059805396992

    Now i’m not saying that Hideo is signed with Ubisoft or something, but considering that Hideo is free now, and that he has over 20 years of “AAA game exp”, and apparently he likes Splinter Cell and has also collaborated with Ubisoft in the Past (2007/2008) i would say that he is the Number 1 Candidate for this post, that anyone in that Interview would lose against Hideo!

    So, what are your thoughts, would you like Hideo to join Ubisoft Toronto and make a New AAA IP with a little control over his creativity, or would you like him to stay Indie, and make smaller projects with total freedom?

    • Venom_Sina

      I hope he partners up with a company like Sony and do his thing.You know,far from stealth genre.I like to see him directing “Silent Hills”,with different name of course,but with the same team!!!After that,another new project,with different setting and different genre.

      • MichaelPayneV

        “I hope he partners up with a company like Sony and do his thing.” and go back to Platform Exclusivity? No, that’s not his thing anymore!

        • Venom_Sina

          By Sony,I meant a company that still cares about original titles,not just milking a good franchise(like Konami these days)!!! It can be any developer.
          But I think he’ll go to Sony,because of this interview:

          http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=17108

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then is Rockstar, not Sony!

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah.That’s actually a good example.Their way of thinking is like:
            quality over quantity,that kind of stuff!!!So a man like KOJIMA can do wonderful things there!!!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly, and if there is a Developer&Publisher that would be willing to invest hundred f millions and risk ending up losing all, that is Rockstar, they are rich as fukk.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            My wife works for rockstar. I can’t say much on this topic but it’s not exactly a free reign developer . Why they have stuck to a certain types of games

          • MichaelPayneV

            No offense, but i can’t trust you until you show me some proof.

            That being said, you don’t have to prove anything to me, only do it if you want to prove me wrong.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Trust what? That my wife is a lawyer for rockstar lol?

          • Jonny McLaurine

            What you want me to put her fuckin law license. I can’t even say jack about her an rockstar other than she works for them as a lawyer setting up contracts. Sorry that have todo.
            Plus not like I’m saying my wife works on games. It’s cool that u don’t trust people. Buy I haven’t claimed anything other than what my wife does.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “What you want me to put her fuckin law license. ”

            No, no, no, NO, i just told you that you don’t have to do anything, unless you want to, unless you care whether i trust you or not, and personally, i don’t think you should give a flying about what i think either if that could get your wise in trouble, seriously, YOU, DON’T have to, you owe me nothing, but apparently looks like you do and completely misunderstood my comment.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            I mean , now on when someone says something on here . Is this how we are gonna respond. I don’t beleive you unless you prove to me? Tsk tsk.
            Curious though what did I say that you have a hard time beleiveing? That rockstar makes a certain type of game past decade? That they are not really into expanding into other genres except what they already excel in? Or is it simply that you can’t beleive a woman represents rockstar with about 1000 other lawyers ?
            I jusy don’t understand what I claim is so hard to beleive.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, no, what i tried to say is that “i have no reason to trust you, but you don’t have to make me earn your trust or trust me either, so i don’t care as long as you don’t care”

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Do you beleive what my name is??? Or is my Fb and face a lie? I’m just a make beleive fatty who invented a alternate life for the Internet . Children, wife , family and friends are all me lol some people are just fuxking retarded. You have to be under the age of 23. Just a guess

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, i’m just not naive enough to believe the first person that says his wife works at Rockstar without some proof, and as i said, YOU DON’T HAVE to prove me anything, unless you want to continue this argument forever.

            Now be honest, why should i believe you that she is working at Rockstar, i bet if you were in my place, you would not believe something like that without some proof.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Ahhh I see after reading many of your comments, your one of the I know everything about metal gear guys. Seen in comments you shoot down many peoples theories. I feel bad for you that you need to bring others down to make you feel like ya got a set of balls between your legs instead of a POSSOM heh. For real though if you got issues when Somone just gives a aspect of their life , then you need council. Anyways I don’t know why I even let your childish comment get to me. My wife being in position she is in has provided info to this site before asshole. No more though. You want proof . Here I tucked my wiener and balls between my legs and made a fruit basket for you . Have a Gud look cuz ur an ass

          • MichaelPayneV

            WOW WOW WOW, in Tony Montana’s word, “TAKE IT EASY, MATE, TAKE IT EASY!” i just told you that i don’t trust you, and in the same sentence that you don’t have to make me trust you, that you don’t have to care whether i trust you or not, and i’m acting Childish?

            Dude, i have been as diplomatic as possible, and you call me “childish”, come on, for real tough.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            No they would not give HK the creative freedom he deserves. rockstar has their hotshots. Ya know what hks salary would be if he came on as a full on rockstar developer? Instead of a contractor ? Shows how much you know about the politics and buisness ends of big companies. I have to quit talking about rockstar before I get my wife in trouble. Peace

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Your so right!!! Rockstar would give hideo all the money they have for a new I.P and say fuxk the I.P they already got on makes. The last gta if I remember right was around 300 million to make? Not sure on exact budget . You know they already working on a red dead or new gta . You think they just gonna scrap that or invest every penny in a 50/50 bet that it may be a best seller ? Hell do we even know what kind of game HK will want to make next. Rockstar is rich because they have followed their personal recipie for years. I don’t see them changing it, to take a chance on Kojima . A producer will have to let him create a new studio or go independent and try and find funding . Let’s be honest HK likes making big expensive trip A games. Right now in gaming buisness nobody wants to take a chance on triple a’s. Make so much money on indies

      • MeLand127

        Yeah, I hope the Internal Team still follow Kojima, which Impossible until Kojima find a new Studio ;(

    • MeLand127

      Nah, I don’t really trust putting Kojima to Ubi, right now.. But, Sony? well, I think it might be good choice 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, let’s just say that Hideo going to Sony will limit his audience to Play Station users, which is not what Hideo wants, he is not about Money.

        • MeLand127

          Hmm, maybe you’re right, but Kojima has good relationship with Sony, and Sony has the Budget for big game. Or, maybe Kojima could also moved to Namco, which will going to have a diffrent story, what do you think?

          • MichaelPayneV

            I on the other hand think that Rockstar Tokyo would be perfect for Hideo, but Ubisoft would also be a great choice, he would save Ubisoft, Ubisoft would get a better image by hiring Hideo, a huge PR Boost in Media.

          • MeLand127

            i don’t find Rockstar Tokyo on the internet, could you show me the wikipedia link?(If Rockstar Japan it’s already dissolve long time ago ;/ ).

            On the other hand, I still think Joining Ubi not a good Idea, until main lead developer is changed (now is Montreal and Quebec), or if he still decided to join the Japan Ubi, the Studio still might just still be a supporter developer.

            I don’t know how Toronto got to make their own game though, maybe because Jade Raymond was once Lead the studio, well, she once had good relationship with the company so I don’t know..

        • Jonny McLaurine

          That’s not entirely true about money. Just look at what they said about tpp. Very expensive including the engine. Everyone is about money

      • Edward Wokhands

        I agree, although I think that all you need to do is fund Kojima and he’ll make any team great. Ubisoft has a LOT of talent (remember, their head animator left to join Naughty Dog, now look at the animations in Uncharted 4 compared to the Assassin’s Creed games) so if they get a good leader they’ll be able to make something great.

        I just hope that Ubi don’t start limiting him if he is there. The first thing they’ll do is drain all character from all his ideas and add microtransactions. If he HAS joined them hopefully they realize how lucky they are because after MGS5 releases I’ll be following him wherever he goes. I’ll also be acting as if Konami don’t exist.

      • MrVux007

        My bet would be that Kojima will either go to Capcom since he has a prolonged history with them and probably the most ideal choice for us and him would be SONY.He has good relations with the company,large history with the company(he even worked on PS2 development for a while) and he can be assured that his games and his team will be treated with respect as always.And ofc lets not forget that the main KOJI PRO/MGS fanbase are long SONY users(and still are),which is another big plus on that part.I doubt the games would be exclusive tho,as games like MGS1,MGS2 and now MGSV are/will be availible on all platforms(excluding MGS3,MGSPW which only appeared on Xbox360/PS3 and MSG4 exclusive to PS3)…in worse case we might get that old timed exclusive treatment,release the game first on playstation,then release it on other platforms after some period of time.If not,hell exclusivety can only bring better qualtiy to the game,as they only focus on one platform,not 4 of them like MGSV(which despite FOX engine capabilities,did take its tool on game budget and time).

      • MrVux007

        i also agree, Sony would be a good choice 🙂

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Will be whoever got the money!!! If there is bad blood with HK and Konami he will want to make a badass better than before game. Or not maybe he retiring to play with Legos . Who knows with him he is very sporadic.

    • vic boss

      Isn’t a little early for that ?? I mean if the rumors are right , Kojima will leave Konami in December so I think this is early

      • MeLand127

        Well, we already think ahead of Kojima Future 🙂

    • MeLand127

      Hey, you all know Kojima is an Auteur right? then check this video, it might give hints of where he will go next! 0.0

    • Tong Ninja

      Kojima and Rockstar will be a great combination! 🙂
      Rockstar can give Kojima a BIG budget to work with as well.

      But I also think he can easily get funding from a Kickstarter campaign to make an Indie game.

    • MrVux007

      My bet would be that Kojima will either go to Capcom since he has a prolonged history with them and probably the most ideal choice for us and him would be SONY.He has good relations with the company,large history with the company(he even worked on PS2 development for a while) and he can be assured that his games and his team will be treated with respect as always.And ofc lets not forget that the main KOJI PRO/MGS fanbase are long SONY users(and still are),which is another big plus on that part.I doubt the games would be exclusive tho,as games like MGS1,MGS2 and now MGSV are/will be availible on all platforms(excluding MGS3,MGSPW which only appeared on Xbox360/PS3 and MSG4 exclusive to PS3)…in worse case we might get that old timed exclusive treatment,release the game first on playstation,then release it on other platforms after some period of time.If not,hell exclusivety can only bring better qualtiy to the game,as they only focus on one platform,not 4 of them like MGSV(which despite FOX engine capabilities,did take its tool on game budget and time)….

      • ThisIsSnake

        Kojima is the kind of guy that needs his own studio, with Sony I can only see them offering a major role on a project because of budget. It does make you think though, Konami did offer him time, creative and guessing financial freedom. I also can’t vision him as a indie.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      That could be anybody. With HK when his contract up every fucking big publisher will call him. He likes many games. Gta splinter cell and Pokemon

  • Edward Wokhands

    A few of you guys liked my previous metal video… I just finished a metal version of Duel Of The Fates.

    Let me know if it’s garbage or not! The first time I’ve ever seen a video with 1 view and it’s mine. -_-

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Is it me, or do I feel like playing that cover over one of the Raiden vs. Vamp fights from MGS4?

      • Edward Wokhands

        >_> Which fight?

        • Tom Brearley-Smith

          The second fight on top of REX during Act 4.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Ah, yeah, that’s one of my favorites.

    • Edward Wokhands

      By the way thanks Nyx for letting me post this video and the previous one. I know it’s a little spammy but it’s so hard to get people to watch your videos and this site is full of awesome honest people so it’s good to get opinions.

        This was funny lol, I wasn’t expecting a release date to be announced at that Christmas Station episode. But was kinda funny reading the reaction comments in the stream, when the main reveal of it was that epic Chicken Cap ;D.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          What u talking about lol . You were also on the comments talking and excited saying stuff as was every other swinging dick haha
          Fun to b mgs fan

          • Gatsu

            I was lol o_O? Well to be honest I don’t remember exactly XD, but I wasn’t expecting to get a release date in the Christmas episode. Or maybe I was secretly hoping for it, but logically thinking the best place to give it is a game show not some web station episode ;D.

    • The Hell Master

    i was reading about a theory of metal gear ground zeros called the swoosh code but sadly all the links i found are broken, anyone got a working link or know what the theory is

        thanks though 🙂

      That voice acting … why did Kojima not hire this guy?? XD

        Coz atkin downes would make many fans not buy this game LOL

      Big man tyrone, he’s the real big boss

    • Why are we still here? Just to suffer this bad voice acting? 😛

      • Tong Ninja

        It wasn’t bad … you can feel the emotions he conveys through this monologue. XD

        • Jonny McLaurine

          See that’s hard thing to say. One person might feel tht way and another might feel like that was shit. Just shows you the drama the makers gotta deal with

          • Tong Ninja

            haha, I was kidding. 🙂
            He was literally reading the lines. No voice acting involved.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I have been all over this trailer SOOOO much, I seriously wonder if there is anything I missed, lol, time to find out. But nearly 2 hours, WOW!

      He is also going to make a second part, wow, ok a lot of stuff.

      • Javier

        He forgets the 9 years between gz and tpp, paz can’t be the same person. That “paz” looks younger in the trailer.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah he really runs with that, lol, but thankfully he knows when something is really far-fetched and says so, unlike some youtubers I know, lol.

        • I bet someone did a clone of Paz, and maybe even the Paz that died in Ground Zeroes wasn’t the real Paz.
          But let’s see what happens.

          I can’t wait for this fucking game, lol. (>’ 0 ‘<)

          • Javier

            I think that was the real paz and the new could be a clone. The same scar is just for annoy snake

            I’m the only one who believes that someone’s trying to mindfuck Big Boss with the scar, yaaaay.

            Yeah, a eso me refería.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I also think that right next to the scissors and pills is not a grenage thingy or whatever he called it. I think it’s the Phantom cigar. The nozzle gives it away.

            YEAH!

      • The Hell Master

        Did I seriously just hear YongYea theorized that the “second” Eli could be Decoy Octopus?

        • Chem

          hahahah that was my first thought too, i think that theory makes no sense but is a good thing that at leats he considered, even if the theory is based on weak facts.

        • No Place For Hayter

          “Yes we are going there” LOL

      • Tong Ninja

        I was surprised that he didn’t mention the 1984 reference/analogy

        I really like his analysis with Eli and The Lord of The Flies analogy. From the way he is sitting on that plastic chair, he seems to be the leader of a group. But what group? The African child soldiers? Other British child soldiers?

        I really look forward to Eli’s back story (probably going to be in the cassette tapes). 🙂

        • Melyssa

          Yong said he totally forgot about the 1984 references and that he’d include them in the second part of the video.
          I remember that he said he was going to talk about a certain poster and I’m sure it was the “Big Boss is watching you” poster, but he didn’t :/
          (Or he did, but without the 1984 references)

          • Tong Ninja

            Yeah I know, I watched his whole analysis. 🙂
            He’s doing a second part to that analysis? Awesome! 😀

      • Chem

        Nice theories!!, maybe we need a thread exclusive to discuss this theories? if there is one out there that i’m not aware of please send me the link bro!!!

        Also one thing that i noticed recently while playin mgs4 is that zeros eyes at the end of the game looks gray just like kazz, codetalker and skulls eyes.

    • Javier

      Watching this was like reading a month of our comments here. After one hour I fallen asleep.

      • No Place For Hayter

        It’s a good way to catch up on the analysis and theories of TPP, but for us it is not in depth enough, still watching it though, still waiting for something new 🙂 still great though.

  • Javier

    I’m going to pre buy another mgsv because the seller does not guarantee me to have it on september first. Maybe they’ll have it a week later, but at least today they confirmed the day one edition.

    I need to play it on sep 1st or die.

    • J_muse72

      If you are on PS4 do what I did and pre order it digitally. You will get to play at exactly 12am Pacific Standard time in the morning of September 1st.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Thanks for pointing that out. I had no idea it was available on PSN! I was seriously worried about it not arriving on the morning of the 1st.

      • Gatsu

        Hmmm I wonder if I should do that… Already got 2 physical pre-ordered for PS4 -_-, but I would love to play it asap. Pretty sure my CE arrives on the release date but still never know if something happen and it don’t arrive …

    • Edward Wokhands

      I’m actually doing the same thing! I’ve got the collector’s edition but, like you, it might not arrive on the 1st.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah it’s good to be on the safe side 🙂 and buy other copy.

  • Edward Wokhands

    I’m currently in the writing/recording phase of an MGS metal/piano covers compilation/medley. It’d be awesome if you could all give me some ideas of specific tracks from the various games? I have a few from MG1, MGS, MGS2 and 5. There’s so many that it’s hard to narrow down on my own.

    I’m thinking of doing the music that plays over the ending in 3 too. Anyway, any ideas/your favorites would be very welcome!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Aside from the obvious great ones, some off the top of my head, MG:S “Enclosure”, MGS4 “View of Deep Snow”

      • Edward Wokhands

        Great choices. Those two actually fit together perfectly, they’re quite similar.

    • Tong Ninja

      The caution music in MGS3. Loved that jungle and spy theme that was incorporated into the caution theme. 😀

      • Edward Wokhands

        Holy crap, dude. That’s an awesome idea! That would make such a great heavy metal cover.

        • Tong Ninja

          haha thanks! 🙂
          Good luck with your music medley covers!

          • Edward Wokhands

            Thanks for suggesting it! You’ve actually really helped me. Here’s my channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6z3Fhl34cVadbhufHneaqA

            It’ll be up before the end of July. You’ll be able to find it there. (There’s only an E3 medley and a Star Wars cover at the moment) Unless I wait a little longer and release it nearer to MGS5? Subscribe if you like my current videos. (I know I’m a spamming dufus -_-)

    • Nice to know that you are also a musician. Good luck with your project.

      I did a Trance version of the MGO2 victory theme years ago.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah! Here’s my channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6z3Fhl34cVadbhufHneaqA

        I’m working on 3 videos at the moment so it won’t be so barren. (Only 2 videos at the moment) Do you have a link to your music? I’d love to hear your MGO2 theme.

        • I will check your channel 😉

          I will upload somewhere, so people could download it for free.
          I just need to find it in my external disc.

          Also, you can check my electronic music here.

          Thanks, and have a nice day 🙂

          • Edward Wokhands

            Thanks, let me know what you think.

            Your music is great, it would make a great soundtrack for a game. What do you use to make it? I loved the atmosphere in Back to Childhood especially, you an Aphex Twin fan?

          • Thanks, i’m glad you liked it.
            Yes, in fact, that is what i want to do, to make music for videogames.

            About Aphex Twin, i’m not a fan, i like a couple of tracks from him, i know his work, but i usually never follow or make same music as famous ones, i always try to make my own music.

            I’m a racing videogame soundtrack fan; Rollcage, Wipeout, Xtreme-G, all those games were the main reason i’m doing electronic music nowadays.
            In fact, i’m making a track for a new game called GRIP, which is the perfect successor of Rollcage.

            My problem is that i’m always showing out my deepest feelings with my music, so i’m very melodic and slow beats, when i should be doing agressive futuristic tracks, hehe.
            I’m thinking in making a new SC account just for agressive stuff.

            I will check your Youtube as soon as i can, sorry, i’m busy like hell always. 🙁

            Have a nice day, and thanks again, mate. 🙂

          • Edward Wokhands

            Dude, I identify with that SO much. When I was making music a while ago (I stopped playing for like 5 or 6 years until last Christmas) EVERYTHING was so slow, sort of introspective, everything had 10xreverb effects on it. :p (All set to full) I enjoyed making it but there was not much mood variation from “depression”. It’s good to not copy people, you tend to find ways to express yourself uniquely that way.

            I loved those games, especially Rollcage. I’ll have to check out GRIP. You definitely should upload some nice angry/aggressive stuff. What I love doing (I’ve been doing a few ambient tracks for a few games I’m helping with) is making it dynamic. It’s so much fun.

            It’s okay, you don’t have to check it, it’s just good to get to know that there are musicians here on MGI. I really want to start getting into dance stuff, I’m doing a few “chiptunes” at the moment for the Metal Gear video I’m making. It’s different to live music but takes a lot of skill, I’ve really grown to admire electronic music. (Usually blasphemy coming from a “metal head”)

          • Hehehe, no blasphemy from someone who plays guitar or listen to guitar music.

            I know, people usually is “i will stick with this kind of music, so i don’t like the another kind”; But people don’t think or realize that the most important part is, guitar or electronic are both coming from one kind -> MUSIC.

            People should be more together in what we have in common, in the thing that we have in common, and not in what makes us all different from others.

            Thanks for cumpliments, but i never take a cumpliment from people, i mean, i say thanks, but i prefer to think that there is a large way to go for me yet, too much to learn (and it is so nice)

            If you want to add me in Facebook, so maybe we could share music stuff, plugins, knowledge (mastering, mixing, etc) i’m open to it.

            https://www.facebook.com/IrionDaRoninMusic

            Don’t worry, as soon as i have time, i will check your music. 🙂
            Have a nice day!

  • J_muse72

    Well I changed my profile pic. How do you like my Kaz glasses?

    • Edward Wokhands

      You’re truly getting in the spirit of Metal Gear fever! I think that the week leading up to MGS V’s release should be a national holiday.

    • No Place For Hayter

      They’re….. Pretty good (> ‘ ‘ )>

    • Gatsu

      Great pic <3 ! Also the glasses look
      http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0son7tfrV1r02r82.gif

  • No Place For Hayter

    I have an idea surrounding Big Boss’s horn. His horn length (most probably being a mental thing and is only in Big Boss’s head) only increases when the player is covered in a crazy amount of blood, so the horn only extends when the player is covered in blood. I had this thought because we have not seen Big Boss’s lengthy horn without him being covered in blood, also this way not only for certain cutscenes when the story needs it but also during gameplay will you have the horn, much like Big Boss’s hallucinating, and how it will both be in the story and a gameplay feature.

    • Javier

      I’m going with the easy, in the first missions the horn is small and in the ending missions is bigger.

      • Aleezy

        Me too

        • FoxTamerMGO

          You are aleezy from mgo2r? lol

          • Aleezy

            Yessss lmaoo foxtamer from tsne?

          • FoxTamerMGO

            Yes haha xD

      • No Place For Hayter

        But we have seen cutscenes from a good portion into the game and his horn is still the exact same size as it is at the beginning.

        • Javier

          I don’t know how it will get out then.

          • No Place For Hayter

            And that is why we are throwing out all kinds of “theories” to keep our brain busy until we find out the true answer 😉

    • Chem

      Nice theory! it make sense with all the scenes that we have seen so far. Another theory that could be true is that we only have that big horn at the end of the game, thats why when we replay the missions, even the avanced ones, we have the little horn.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Probably on right path . With showers an stuff. Maybe lots of blood makes horn grow and bb to go bezerk

    • Melyssa

      So he’s literally seeing himself as a demon? I like that!

    • Gatsu

      Good theory NP4H 🙂 ! It could be something like that indeed.

  • ThisIsSnake

    I doubt it, but I hope we get to see Metal Gear Online 3. Here’s the thing, sorry if I posted it in the wrong article, can Konami remove Kojima’s name from the credits? If I was Kojima, it would certainly affect me, they should have done this after the game was released.

    • BurntFM

      If the rumors from the inside source are true, the new CEO of Konami doesn’t like Kojima and vice versa. So even if it the company as a whole didn’t want to take his name off they had to because of the “Restructuring” Which means: New CEO takes over, Konami wants to dive deeply into the mobile industry. Koji Pro is disbanded, and anything that has to do with Kojima is eradicated. Someone should write a retelling of these events because the Plot is more twisted than anything in the MGS universe LOL.

    • Jonny McLaurine

      No that would be illegal now the box they can do what they want

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Quiet Sneaking Suit . What do you think folks =)

    • No Place For Hayter

      Sounds awesome, but she doesn’t need one, lol.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Hell no XD. I have another other but i could be banned Lol

    • BurntFM

      I’m not feeling it. Would like to keep her true to her design in my game. Somethings I noticed here and there in trailers and videos makes me come up with some assumptions as to why we would like to let her bare some skin. One of those things the E3 trailer where she’s wearing fatigues and her hands tied behind her back she seems weak so the soldier is able to choke her and try to down her.

      http://i.minus.com/ifTCx2518prr5.gif

      • korruption

        Her titties are solar-powered, which she uses for her abilities! =O

        • No Place For Hayter

          That’s funny, but taken seriously, she would just run around naked if that were true, lol.

          • korruption

            Oh she will. Right PC modders? XD

          • Michalien

            with mods this game CANT die

            Alas, I have but my wee lil PS4 with which to experience the majesty of this game.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Considering she has a camo choice in pre-mission selection, I’m wondering what kind of camo choices she would have, lol.

        • korruption

          I wonder of this on a nightly basis.

      • Javier

        I don’t like that “sun powers” theory.

          meh. works for superman ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      • Michalien

        what is she pulling of her hands there?
        i can only see that quiet (haha) bad

        • BurntFM

          ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • Michalien

            seriously
            i first thought it would be her watch
            but it would be pointless
            and it is no watch after looking at it
            maybe this has something to do with her power
            and kojima knew nobody would look at her hands in a shot like this 😉

          • BurntFM

            handcuffs.

          • Michalien

            yeah

          • Gatsu

            LOL XD

    • Looks cool.

      I can’t wait to see Quiet and other important characters in action in MGO3, they should be there, as in MGO2.

    • Kawaii Monster

      That would be so sick if she had a suit like that

  • Solid PhoeniX

    After Months of reading articles on Metal Gear Informer, I Finally joined. I had to. Just letting you Guys know that I’m from South Africa and I Cannot wait for MGSV:TTP! I ordered my Ps4 and will get it in August just before release. I also booked my Week off from work to play till my heart’s content!

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    I think that the cybernetic eye the female Skulls wear is influenced by HAL from 2001 Space Odyssey. Kojima’s favourite movie.

    • Or the Borgs, from Star Trek.

    • Ol’ Jack Burton

      Screams “Universal Soldier” imo, which really just reinforces that I think they’re some of Para-Medic’s early Frankenstein experiments. Plus Otacon being named after Roland Emmerich, of course!

  • FMercenary

    Crazy theory time! What if Paz was a clone all along; a clone of a deceased relative of Zero?!?! Maybe a daughter or the like? So the Paz from the recent trailer is just another clone they find in a lab.

    • Eugene Voldo

      Interesting theory indeed! But what if this deceased relative of Zero was a clone of Boss herself? And what if Boss was a clone of Zero? Just think of all the possibilities!

      I don’t try to be mean, but it doesn’t make any sense. Mind you Metal Gear series hardly making any sense with its plot, but still it is a crazy theory. Almost as crazy as theory about Quiet being
      Chico who is transgender now.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Actually we don’t know much about les. Was their other projects before big boss clones? We don’t know. Now Chico transgender is pretty crazy. Cloned Paz not to crazy imo

        • Eugene Voldo

          I always try to think about plot development in terms of impact. Does Paz being clone add something to the Metal Gear lore? No. Except that she is another clone. I know Kojima loves Evangelion, but I don’t think that he would add more clones to Metal Gear series.

          About Quiet=Chico. Personally I kinda like this theory because it will be an ultimate trolling from Kojima. That’s why I keep hoping that Quiet is Chico.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Clones, one serious way to make a franchises story impossible to predict, anything could happen, lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, that was one of the possibilities 😉 it also would explain why the Paz in TPP looks older than around 9 years old, because there were multiple for a long time now. That being said I’m not very supportive of this theory, lol.

    • Andrea Feletti

      Whats that?

      • Quiet in a walker, i guess.
        No idea from where it comes, to be honest.
        Just wanted to share it.

        Have a nice day 🙂

        • stocchinet .

          It’s from a guy that makes mech models and other things, kojima kojima retweeted his stuff

    • Gatsu

      Awesome 🙂 !

  • Jonny McLaurine

    Remember his name is still in the beginning and end of credits for each mission? Sounds like a fuk u from HK to Konami for whatever they got going on.
    Also legally Konami paid for everything that HK and Koji pro has done for tpp and the engine.

  • Jonny McLaurine

    Also I have heard of people saying they would boycott games in the past. It never works , in fact I’m not sure of one instance that people boycotting games in the game industry has ever had a impact! – like I said I’m not sure. Maybe a few did. If yall remember I told yall my wife is a lawyer for rockstar. You know how many parents boycotted San Andreas? Yet it was a very big money maker and all that bs did nothing . Funny fact tho. The politician who led the charge against games just got arrested for helping to smuggle guns to the triads in the USA. A lot of corruption etc. look it up pretty funny how he said games make criminals

    • No Place For Hayter

      Boycotting for me at least is personal, I don’t expect it to effect anything (there is enough people out there to pad anything, lol) but I won’t be buying it 🙂

  • Andrea Feletti

    C’mon DD you can do this 😉

    • J_muse72

      Dont get me wrong I like DD too and will definitely use him in the field, but I have thing for female snipers sooo… go Quiet!

  • So I had this thought that it’s over. We’re not going to get any new trailers, we’re probably not going to get any new gameplay videos either (maybe except recordings from Gamescom or other places where they let people play the game).

    So… All that is left for us is waiting. Waiting for the game to be released. And for me it’s even more waiting because PC version will be released a bit later :(.

    • J_muse72

      Actually, I think we are actually waiting for some more Mother Base gameplay.

      • Ohh! You are right! I forgot about that one 😀

        • J_muse72

          Oops, why the heck did I pit “actually” twice?!
          Anyways yeah,I can’t wait for MB gameplay!

    • Vonkronberg

      Probably, we´ll get only one more trailer, the launch trailer!

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, the one trailer I won’t watch, hopefully because I will be playing the game >.<

  • THEORY time:

    Long time ago, people were thinking about PsychoMantis as son of Skullface, due all the story behind him.
    If we take Skull Face as a bipolar side of Snake, so he doesn’t exist, what if PsychoMantis is the true son of Volgin?
    Remember, Volgin “does” Eva, so there is “The Third Child” title, the Third Child from Eva.
    So, somehow Psychomantis is “brother” of Liquid and Snake? Lol.
    PsychoMantis: “My father was a horrible man”, so does make sense with Volgin behaviour.

    Having Skullface as the bad side of Snake, also, what if Code Talker was the good bipolar side of Snake? The one in which he feels in peace with himself.

    Just wanted to drop that.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

      Nice theory, but I just don’t get the idea of characters just being a figment of Snakes imagination. I couldn’t think of anything worse than getting to the end of TPP to find out it was a dream or something like that.

    • Melyssa

      Psycho Mantis would have to be born in 1964 or 1965, so he’d be 20 years old in TPP. The MiniMantis we see here definitely doesn’t have 20 years on his shoulders, he’s a teen kid.

      I do like the idea of Code Talker representind Big Boss’ “good” side, to contrast Skullface’s “bad side”. While being a real, tangible person, of course.

      • Then maybe he is not Psycho Mantis, just another guy from the same experiments.
        Let’s see what happens. 🙂

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    descent into madness.

  • Mini gear

    brothers! i got the CE guide too just now!… im going broke from tpp -_-

    • No Place For Hayter

      I know how you feel, lol, it is ok though you are not alone there are a lot of people here whom have spent an unbelievable amount of money on TPP, lol.

      • scarecrow

        Yeah, I just started working as a part-time in a cinema since early July, only to pre-order MGSV.
        when I’m get paid, i’m leaving haha

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Hahaha! That’s crazy! 🙂

        • J_muse72

          That is the best thing ever! Haha;!!

    • What are the differences between CE and normal version?
      And the differences between the hard portrait and the soft one (i don’t know if those are CE and normal version, to be honest)

      Thanks 🙂

      • J_muse72

        Just the Hard cover and cover artwork is the only difference.

        • Are the prices the same?

          Thanks 🙂

          • J_muse72

            Right now on Amazon the prices are as follows:

            Hardcover: $25
            Paperback: $13

      • Mini gear

        just that beutifull color and the fact of knowing its special ^_^

    • Gatsu

      Congratz Mini ;D. You’ll pull in money, guides just to play TPP. Rubbing your bloody fingers around the controller, all for revenge :)!

      • Mini gear

        thanks gatz 🙂 well make them give back the time weve lost, konami sent us to september but well wait no longer. were already buyers

  • J_muse72

    So what’s all of your guys’ plan. Are you going to try to play TPP as soon as it is released (Sep 1st/2nd for console and Sep 15 for PC) or wait till the next morning or day and how do you plan on getting it?(Midnight madness, digitaly, delivery, etc.)

    My plan of attack is that I pre-ordered it digitally on PSN so I can play it the second it is released. And my collector’s edition will come in the mail ASAP since I chose Day-One Shipping.

    • The Reaver

      I’m not actually sure if I was guaranteed that my Collector’s Edition would arrive on launch day or not, but I don’t really mind because I’m sure it’ll arrive in the same week and the closer to the weekend I get to start playing it the better, so I don’t have to worry about only being able to play the beginnings of the game in smaller sessions during the weekdays.

    • As soon as the game it’s playable, that will be my moment.

      When girlfriend is working, i will play MGO3, when she arrives home, i will play the story to share it with her, she likes it too.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, looks like you have a perfect girlfriend.

    • MichaelPayneV

      My plan is, get a Cardboard Box to sit on, 5 bags of Popcorn, wear a Snake Bandanna, wear an eye patch, while smoking an electronic cigar like a Big Boss.

      Just kidding, play it when i’m back from work on 16 September…and then never show up back for 2 straight weeks!

    • Gatsu

      I will be ready to play when Sep 1 comes. Just hoping my CE will be delivered asap or I go nuclear >:C.

      • Mini gear

        if my CE aint here on release… oh boy there will be blood (more then snake has)

    • No Place For Hayter

      Why are you counting down to the day? I will be playing it literally none stop the HOUR I get my hands on it. That being said I will be getting my copy ASAP as they will ship it out a day or two ealier so I get it on the release day, that being said I’m still unsure and want to buy a PSN copy just so I can start playing it at midnight, lol, but I don’t want to give Konami any more money than I already am for TPP. Choices choices.

  • Michalien

    Oh man
    just read through this post
    almost down to the end
    i have the feeling this forum will be really empty around 1st sep xD
    but my PC comrades will be with me and waiting till 15th september
    btw
    does anyone know where to get a retail of tpp for PC?
    I asked the Konami support twice but they’re derpieved of there words
    I hope someone here can Help me
    I want this game retail so bad
    Thanks for this forum and all the nice people here
    you are keeping me alive for almost a year now
    (^^)7

    • MichaelPayneV

      Same here man, looks like Konami will make me do this again with TPP as I did with GZ, and I don’t want to, but I want to play it on September 2015, I also want to own it physically, but I don’t want to buy it twice, so I will have to do this.

      Now don’t ask what, and NO, in case you know what I’m talking about, don’t you even mention it, I’m trying to be as critic as possible, so please, don’t ruin my comment.

      • Michalien

        Did they yet confirmed anything for a Retail version of the game?
        Because the release of the game will be after my holidyas and i will have almost no time to play it
        so if there would be a retail version some weeks after that
        i would wait until then
        (hope this doesnt ruin your comment)

        • MichaelPayneV

          No, it doesn’t ruin it, but for me, if it comes in Physical form longer than 2 weeks after September 15, i won’t wait.

          • Michalien

            there is a chance it wont take that long
            since gz came 1 1/2 months later
            but tpp is more important

    • Gatsu

      Thanks for being here :). I will be around post-release, because of the other part of my job as a mod.. and because this is MGI :D. Can’t stay away lol. Also on PS4/Steam of course.

      There’s a chance it will be released physical on the day of release…but no confirmation of that yet. So could be like with GZ that it’ll come a bit later available after digital versions. There is still Gamescom coming so maybe they will give info about it there.

      • hunner

  • BurntFM

    Guys, take a minute to look at this analysis video. In my opinion, it’s got way more interesting observations than the Yong ones and less coo-coo for cocoa puffs WTF claims than Python LOL

    • MichaelPayneV

      This guy basically copies Yong, but he does have some Original good points.

      • Dark, Distant Future

        That’s a pretty bold claim. I’m going to have to ask for proof otherwise you’re lying.

        And I’m asking for proof because:

        -BluTV published his ‘MGSV E3-2015 Trailer Analysis’ on Jul 12, 2015
        -YongYea published his ‘MGSV E3-2015 Trailer Analysis’ on Jul 16, 2015

        • Ravenous

          Just watch Blutv’s earlier vidoes, it’s copy-paste Yongyea-style, everything from intro to outro XD

    Just 6ish weeks left, it finally feels like it’s in reach, this is the hardest part.

  • Javier

    Yesterday I confirmed 3 weeks of vacation in september. One is from “holly week” and the other two from “winter” (now).

    • Gatsu

      That’s amazing Javier :), congratz! It’s almost the same for me but starting 1 week before Sep. So got 1 week to get ready (GZ and other stuff) and 2 weeks to enjoy TPP. I hope the 2 weeks is enough for me D: …

      • Michalien

        2 weeks should be enough for 1 playthrough i guess lol
        but not for much more
        except you will play the game with NO break xD

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah I got myself one week in September, it will be enough to finish the story, not 100% the game but enough for the story 🙂

  • Tong Ninja

    Where’s Nyxus (Big Boss)?
    Not saying he should be posting articles up or commenting every day, but his presence has been missing in the last few days… haha
    If you’re going on holidays again, please let us know when you will be back!! 😀

    • Gatsu

      Don’t worry Nyxus is fine. It’s summer time so he is a little busy and MGI might not be updated so frequently :). But he’ll be back soon.
      This is some info he gave me few weeks ago.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, the idea is, Never worry about Boss, when does he ever die out on a mission? even if he did he would just retry, no big deal, some missions are just longer than others 😉

  • Gatsu

    It’s been a long road to this day since 1998. Thanks Kojima-san for letting us experience the best saga in the world ;).

    By the way, how did you all comrades first find out about MGS? For me I remember being 10 years old, got 2 Christmas presents FF7 and a game with a cool name… Metal Gear Solid. Best Christmas ever. I quickly noticed it had epic story and characters, mind blown = a fan ever since. Didn’t understand English perfectly when first played it, but enough to know that MGS was a freaking awesome game and this man named Hideo Kojima was a god.

      I remember being about eight or nine years old and getting a Playstation 1 demo disk (Jampack I believe the name was) and it had a demo of Metal Gear Solid. I could not put it down! Since then, every Metal Gear game after that was a day one buy for me.

      • Gatsu

        Nice :), those PS1 demo discs rocked or some magazines that included certain demo etc. I couldn’t buy some MGS day one like Portable Ops, PW or MGS4. Couldn’t afford a PS3 back in the day right away which was sad :(, but a little later just had to buy it for MGS4 :D.

    • J_muse72

      My dad played MGS on PS1 when I was very young(around 2-3). But I never played any of them until maybe 2011(14yrs old) when the HD collection came out. I played MGS3 because it said it took place before MGS2. And that was when me and my bro fell in live with the games. MGS3 was so amazing and so detailed we were mind blown. So then of course we got MGS1 on PSN and then MGS4 and played them all the way through at least 5 times each. It wasn’t hard at all for me to understand the lore and story. So now Here I am, been waiting since 2012 for TPP and have invested a lot into these games to support Kojima since day one.

      Well that’s my story, I only regret not getting into the series sooner but I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as I have a clear understanding of all things MGS!

      • Gatsu

        Good story ;), I like reading these. Playing the games with bros is amazing and hey, better to experience the games later than never right :D?

    • My older brother rented a PlayStation from a video rental place named “Super duper video” he rented Metal Gear Solid for himself and Crash for me. We ended up playing Metal Gear for days… some of the best bonding we ever made. Since then I had to buy him the legacy collection on 360 and I bought him Ground Zeroes for his birthday. I have a copy of Phantom Pain paid off for him on X BOX ONE. I blame him and thank him for renting that game when I was to young to. My hero *breaks down in tears.

      • Gatsu

        Lol super duper video XD, awesome. Yeah brotherly love ftw, nice that can share the epic saga with others ;D!

        I wish my younger brother would be so excited of MGSV as I am, I bought him GZ but still haven’t played it much >_<.
        But he will play it when TPP releases.

        I also played every MGS with my older brother, but he haven't touched the games in years as he only got PC. Will buy him TPP also :).

        • My brother was to busy to play MGS 2 or MGS3 when they came out. So when he eventually got on 360 I got him the collection. Since then he got back into it so I been keeping him up to date haha

    • Andrea Feletti

      My cousin had a physical copy of the

      • Gatsu

        That’s great ;), MGS lives on in the families. It’s nice to read how people get to know this fantastic saga ;D. I was kinda lucky I guess by getting MGS1 as a present, not sure when I would’ve gotten to know this saga if it had not happened back in 90’s.

    • korruption

      I knew about it for years before I got a PS1, the following Christmas I got this game and… I hated it! The camera was zoomed in way too far, the enemies were always on my ass since I couldn’t see where I was going, the alert sound always scared the fuck outta me, I could only take 2 hits before dying.

      Of course I got over that, and learned to appreciate the game (thanks in no small part to looking up strategies and being told that it was me that sucked instead of the game itself). That was a rough introduction indeed.

    • CaspburnT

      Played metal gear on NES when I was about five years old. Never got anywhere with it, because I tried to play like it was Battletoads! Years later I bought a playstation magazine that came with the metal gear solid demo. I spent so many hours just playing that demo. Then the full game released and it was my first love haha. 29 years old now and still love the series.

      Also I just wanted to say I really enjoy the metal gear informer community!

      • Gatsu

        Cool to hear, that some played the first MG games back in the days ;D. But seriously, oh maaan NES games were HARD. I still haven’t been able to finish Battletoads when played few years ago again lol. The coop was fun though ;). P.S. aye MGI community rocks!

    • Raven_Sorrow

      Aww man! The nostalgia! You brought a little tear to my eye :’) For me it was also 1998, and was about to be 10. I went to a birthday party of a friend and he got the game as present and he didn’t gave it too much attention because he didn’t understand English. I didn’t either but i wanted to try it because i didn’t own and never had played PS1. So i sat there in another’s birthday party, kicking some serious genome soldier butt! Lost at the ocelot boss fight XD. After the party, i went home, got my savings, bought the game. EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T OWN A PS1!! Later i got a ps1 with my brother and damn i learned English (Had to to understand how to get Meryl’s codec XD). By Gray Fox i got really into the story 😉 And here we are 😀

      FUN FACT: Every console i got, i bought the MGS game first then the console XD MGS then PS1, MGS2 then PS2, MGS4 then PS3 and (just for keeping the thing rolling) MGS5GZ then PS4 XDD

      Great F’ing Times

      @Gatsu88:disqus you are the man! Great post! (^^)7

      • Gatsu

        Hehe np :), nostalgia ftw. I friend of mine in youtube asked this question once and was fun reading all the comments.

        Was thinking it would be nice to have article of trailers and other stuff leading to MGSV:TPP release, which was why I made the post too :D. Originally that was our comrade PrinceHeir’s idea I think to make own article of it, but gotta wait Nyxus for it if he wanna do it later ;). I surely missed some videos but didn’t want to make my post too long, well already kinda is… but whatever :P.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I kind of grew up with MGS around me, so I can’t really remember any moment or times, I’ve seen people play the games before I did myself for a while, lol.

    • vic boss

      I first found out metal gear because of my brother, he liked it , his favorite is mgs2. I was a little kid when he bought his ps2 with mgs2 I think I was like 5 or 6 years old. I remember watching him playing it always and the game looked cool but i was just a kid, so later i wante to know what was all about so when I was like 9 or 10 years old I played the twin snakes on gamecube and loved it. Then played mgs2 and loved it more. And we’re talking when I was like 10 years old. Then I played mgs3 on ps2 and it felt so boring, I think it was the camera or something. Then the ps3 came out and my brother bought it until like 2009 and then I played mgs4 and man it was an awesome game, but up to that point I was like 13 years old. And then when the hd collection came out on ps3 in 2012 , it was when I finally played and beat mgs3 and it instantly became my favorite mgs game. So that’s how I knew about metal gear. And my brother knew about it because he lend one of his ps1 games to a friend (don’t remember which one ) and his friend lend him the first mgs on ps1 , that’s how he found out about mgs and the thing is that he always bought the new playstation just for the new metal gear game. Anyways I’m 19 years old.

    • Gatsu

      I just wish I could play all the MGS games with the Japanese voice acting some day… Watching these trailers give me the feels. Like that MGS1 wow (changed it) *sniff*. That would be a fantastic experience to me. MGS is one of the rare game sagas that have both English and Japanese VA amazingly done imo ;O.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I had almost the same age as you, was 11/12, it was 2005 or 2006, saw the GTA San Abdreas Trailer, wasn”t sure if i wanted a PS2, i liked my PC (it was a 486) then i saw the “MGS3 subsistence Trailer” i knew about MGS, but didn’t got in to it because of the Top Down camera, so then i brought a PS2, played San Andreas, good, played Subsistence, then MGS1, and 2, ignoring the Camera, that’s when my life changed.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        486 processor?Os?

        • MichaelPayneV

          the CPU was a 486, that’s all i know, and that i had Bomberman.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            I had a PC with winxp at that’s time.didn’t use for gaming.

    • Steven Michael Brown

      I played mgs1 demo at a friends house when I must have been about 10 or 11. I think it was also the jampack demo cd. I didn’t know what game it was but we played that demo a lot. I also watched my other friend play bits and pieces of the game. Once again, I didn’t know until much later that it was mgs, just knew how awesome it was. Then it was mgs2 that I watched another friend play. I just remember it being unlike any other game I had ever seen so I bought it. Took me a while to get used to the circle button selecting menu options. Don’t remember much of the plot tho. Now mgs3 blew my mind. Best game ever. So many details and funny little things you get if you mess around long enough. One of my friends used to come over all the time just to watch me play it. Best boss fights ever on mgs3. Mgs4 I only played one quick play through I just bought a ps4 just for phantom pain. I think it could top mgs3. Only game I have so far is ground zeroes. Improvements on controls and camera are amazing. A few weeks ago I bought legacy collection for ps3. Trying to play through all of them by sept 1.

    • Mini gear

      was over to see my dad and noticed a game called mgs2 there. i did play 1 before without relising it though

    • Eugene Voldo

      My story is not so romantic. In 2006 I bought chipped PS2 with some games I had heard about – one of them was MGS2. I remember the first impression I got from playing it: «It’s almost like interactive cinema!». Even though I struggled with stealth (eat rations like a pig, no joke) and bosses I had almost beat MGS2. The problem is the game bugged near the end (in cut-scene after the battle with dozens of MG Ray) and actually I still don’t really know how MGS2 ends. I’ve seen on youtube final cut-scenes, but since it was so long ago I didn’t really understand anything from speeches.

      Second game was MGS3 which I liked for open-world “feeling” and disliked for cumbersome controls and some awful bosses (Fury and the guy with bees are complete shit in my opinion).
      Then Iplayed MGS4 which is sadly nowhere near good enough to be called a true MGS
      game. Story is a clusterfuck, bosses are awful and not just from the
      gameplay point, but from the design too. Beauties, really? Eh.

      Around 2011 I played original MGS. completing the full circle. And you know what? After played all modern MGSes, I can say that MGS is the greatest of them all. It is a perfect stealth
      game with engaging storyline and amazing pace. This is Kojima’s magnum opus.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Damn, you sire are one of the few people who deserve to be called a fan, you are not a Fan-Boy and respect that!

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          He deserves a mega brownie

          • MichaelPayneV

            Now, give that man a Ration.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            ration gives constipation CONSTIPATION

      • No Place For Hayter

        Don’t let the game bugging prevent you from coming back and re-playing the game, seriously finish that 🙂

        MGS3 had the best bosses in the series IMO, and yes The Pain is the weakest (not a bad boss) and is very boring compared to the rest. But The Fury? he was an awesome space flamethrower dude? what did you not like about him? he wasn’t boring or awkward like The Pain was.

        MGS4 is a great game…….. But IMO it is a really bad MGS game, so I agree with you there.

        My list of serious favorites goes like this MGS3>MGSPW>MG:S>MGS2>MGS4>>>>MGSGZ

        I would have swapped the positions of the first and second MGS but Liquids arm in the second game makes me stick it behind MG:S despite me wanting to put it in front, lol. And the only ones on the list that have things that I consider bad would be MGS4 and GZ, the rest may have their flaws but they do not stand out or get in my way and thus aren’t big enough for me to list as flaws, and the games have so much in them as far as good and great content goes that i spend my time thinking about what is great about them not what is bad. For MGS3/PW/S/2 I think about what is great about them, for MGS4/GZ I think about what is bad about them, when I start thinking about MGS4/GZ I do not start thinking about what is good I start to get annoying and further dive into what I dislike about them, lol, more GZ than anything, lol.

    • Will

      I remember i was 12 or 13 years old in 2006 when i bought a copy of MGS1, i would only understand a few words in english, (i kinda learned english because of that game and MGS3), but those cutscenes and the gameplay, really got me into those games. I was really into movies when i was a kid, and i used to play like a Rambo, it wasn’t until i talked with some friends that i learned that MGS should be played stealthily. The cutscenes made me want to learn english, so i could understand what those badass characters were talking, and learn the basic story, so i would play with a dictionary by y side, and thats how i learned english.
      I fell in love with the series after the first one, i remember being noobily confused with various things along the way, like when i used to think the Snake from MGS3 was the same as the one from MGS1, and i used to question “why Ocelot loook younger?”, i didn’t have internet by the time, and i didn’t have played MGS2 till some years later, i learned the complex story through some magazines, and the internet some time later.

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      I first heard about mgs thru the PlayStation demo discs. I had already known about the series because I had the 2 on Nintendo as a kid. It was awesome when I got it because I had found out that funcoland had it available 2 days before release date. So I brought it home and grinded that whole night and beat it before it was released. Good times.

    • ddmaster

      Was summer of 2000. My older brother got it from a friend. I started watching him play then I started. I was 6 at the time I fell in love with the original MGS. Turned right around at Christmas that year and got MG2 and MG2 SS.

    • akumetsu

      the best copilation video of metal gear so fun in this games, and a lot memories !!!

    • Plissken

      I remember my buddy had a PS1 and MGS, and watching the duel with Ocelot. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a PS1 so I didn’t get to experience MGS or Resident Evil for myself. I played MGS2 for Xbox but had no idea what was going on. It wasn’t until March 2005 that I got to play the first one for myself, (The Twin Snakes, don’t give me any shit). I never played a video game like that, it was like an interactive movie. Then, I played MGS2 right after, luckily enough time had passed and I didn’t remember anything from playing it before. A couple months later I bought a PS2 and the first game I bought was MGS3. I got a PSP, played Portable Ops, Portable Ops Plus, MG Ac!d 1 and 2, played the original MG and MG2:SS and the PS1 MGS. Got my PS3, MGS4 and met Hideo at his world tour signing. Since then, I’ve gotten PW for PSP, the HD Collection, Legacy Collection, GZ, Substance, Subsistence, the Essential Collection and Ghost Babel.

  • GUN®

    Is the rumour about face customisation true? I heard that a previewer stated that he didn’t believe that Venom Snake is the real Big Boss because he could customise his face at the beginning of the game?

    Can’t be right can it?

    • No Place For Hayter

      It isn’t what some people think it is. If it is truly face customization than it is only for MGO as every person who played the preview played as Big Boss and not the customization did not change the single player look. That being said the customization is most likely only clothing and additions, such as what we saw in the most recent gameplay showcase where we saw a Big Boss running around with a bandana and a mullet, which shows us some kind of customization of his head.

      • But don’t you think the face customization should be in the MGO menu or something? Not in the main story.
        It’s super weird.

        I still think there is something happening here.
        Take a look at the trailer, the scene where he is walking in the hall and he is becoming a demon. The first guy is Big Boss, the eyepatch with two strings, as we already are acustomed to see BB.
        However, the other two transformations, the eyepatch has three strings.

        This could be, that we are not playing with just Big Boss (at least at beginning) OR that there will be flashes back to the past. (I’m more with the second thing)

        Have a nice day 🙂

        • No Place For Hayter

          The biggest issue here is, how little we know and how much we are misinterpreting what we know, all we have is one off hand remark by one person which was later corrected, so hell is anyone knows anything, lol, also why would TPP hide such a big thing to reveal it the moment the game starts? even MGS2 hid what it did and played it up, but from what we have heard TPP (if it was anyone other than BB) gives it away practically before the game even starts and does so through a menu? not story? and after that II spend how long playing as someone who is not BB while everyone thinks it is? that would be so stupid so poorly done and simply irratating I don’t think I could put up with it, lol.

          Though making any sort of deal out of the eye patch is like making a deal out of a change of camo, or SS having a mustache in MGS4, I mean if someone was impersonating BB why change anything? the only reason something pointless like that would change is if it was the original Big Boss, someone who wasn’t wouldn’t dare change anything.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Putting it in the main story would justify the existence of MGO in TPP’s universe, would make them connected.

          My Theory: Ishmael is your MGO character, after he saves Venom, he then goes back to his missions aka MGO Death Matches!

      • Ravenous

        Yeah, but didn’t the same statement also say that the customization-menu was locked, so nobody could actually see what was in there?

    • MichaelPayneV

      Is for Ishmael, not for Snake, so is possible that Ismael is actually your MGO Character.

    • J_muse72

      I think that if there is face customization in the main story, it should be for your Diamond Dogs, being able to customize your face in the story would be great!

  • NakedSnake85

    Why everyone changed profile pics? :p

    • Javier

      Because our faces will be irrelevant.

    • MichaelPayneV

      To go against Cipher’s plan of making “Our faces irrelevant”

      I wasn’t expecting lots of people posting their faces here because of me making a Joke towards someone finally showing his face here, by mentioning Zero’s dialogue about “Our faces” and how he is fighting against Cipher’s plan, and saying that i wish more people would do this, and then they actually did it, i didn’t knew i had this much authority on this website, especially since i’m not a Mod either.

      So yeah “This is how it happened, this is how the old profile pictures died!”

      • J_muse72

        Haha Batman Arkham Knight ref there! Anyways yep, I thought it was a good idea to change pics.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Glad you cached that one.

      I dunno, what MPV and Javier said below <3. Just thought it might be nice to change it like that, after MPV had done it too and some others. Been hiding behind BB avatars for long time anyway ;), lol.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Just Rewatched “Man of Steel” and is it just me, or Hideo Kojima’s Directing style in all Metal gears since MGS3 is similar, if not identical to Zack Snyder?

    Actually, Zack Sndyer started directing afetr Hideo, so is Zack Snyder a Hideo Kojiam Fan?
    This is MOS without the sound, so is not a pirate Movie really, just the image.

    Goddamn it, now i will be Mad of Zack Snyder doesn’t end up as the Director for a Metal Gear Solid Movie.

    https://youtu.be/R0dhK7wJNvQ

    • stocchinet .

      Honestly i think that snyder ia not a very good director, and man of steel a it’s a quite bad movie, kojima style it’s a “portmanteau” of classic holliwood styles, judging from the crapload of movies he watch

  • vic boss

    Do you guys think there will be a problem with the dlc motherbase from the phantom pain that is free with the disc of ground zeroes? I want to download GZ from my ps4 to have it digitally but I already own the disc and I heard that in order for the dlc to unblock you have to use the disc so idk if it’s safe or not.

    • Tong Ninja

      I think you only need your GZ save file?

      Although, when I got the physical version I got a code with it that I will have to input in to get the GZ Bonus content when TPP comes out. But later, they said you only need a save file … I think Kojima will let us know before September on how to get the bonus content. 🙂

    • J_muse72

      I think you just need to voucher that came with the physical copy of the game. I downloaded GZ for free as a PS+ member even though I already had the physical copy since the release. Just set up your account on PC and follow the instructions on voucher.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I think there are 2 options.

      1. Using the internet, Download the save.
      2. Own the save on your hardware, and don’t feel like using the internet, introduce the GZ as a proof that you don’t just have a GZ save, but also own the Game.

      That’s how i think at least.

  • J_muse72

    Okay, prediction time. I have been wondering this for a long time now and I want to know what you predict the opening to TPP is too:

    I think that the very beginning of TPP is going to begin somewhere in the last cut scene GZ or right after. I also believe that the helicopter did not crash and there is something more to the end of GZ. After that it most likely will move onto the hospital scene and everything will play out from there.

    One more thing:

    How do you all think the game will transition between the hospital level and the intro to Afghanistan. For this I can’t really wrap my head around one solid prediction. I simply can’t!! I personally hope there is a lengthy cutscene between the two missions. I was a fan of the long cut scenes.

    • vic boss

      The one no one has said before , how is gonna be presented to us the moment where big boss gets the prosthetic arm , i mean the actual moment where he gets rid of the hook and gets the prosthetic arm. Also there has to be a cutscene where he doesn’t use the eye patch. That’s a must have.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Showing his damaged eye as an emphasis on the “Phantom Pain”, feeling as his eye is still there…maybe his eye is still there, just really, really damaged, possible gray and green looking, with a bullet wound splitting it in half!

    • SholidOnline

      I think it’s going to go right into the hospital and either show a flashback then, or a flashback later on as Big Boss remembers it.

      • J_muse72

        I never thought about that. Maybe something extremely important happens between the end of GZ and the hospital and during the game, pieces will slowly come together through flashbacks until a reveal towards the end. Great idea man, definitely something to consider.

    • MichaelPayneV

      1. I agree with the way you said it would start, from the moment GZ left of. How it will continue? Snake staying at the edge of the chopper (As seen in the GDC 2013 Trailer) commanding Morpho to take them to the near land Hospital, and judging by his face expression, he is tired, and seconds from falling asleep due to blood loos, then the screen will fade black and see the CPR scene.

      2.Between Cyprus and Afganistan, showing Snake and Ocelot being picked by a Diamond Dogs Chopper, being taken to a near by village, then a screen saying “x times later” and then the Afganistan Rescue Kaz mission.

      That’s how i see it!

      • J_muse72

        That review by Yong really answered my question regarding that scene in the GDC trailer. I was always like what happens to that scene, was it ultimately cut out at release? But now I know, the chopper didn’t even crash!! Instant mind blown!!

        I do hope there is more in between the hospital and Afgan mission and not just a big jump/skip to. At least that is my opinion.

        • MichaelPayneV

          It wasn’t in the Preview event for Journalists, it was nothing between Cyprus and Afganistan, but maybe the part was cut from the Preview for Spoiler free purpose.

          Now, what could that section be? Most likely the Recovery period for Snake, relearning how to walk properly, doing physical therapy to regain full control of his Body, work out to get back in shape, and ultimately getting his New Arm.

          Basically a “Recovery” segment, call it the New VR Training, being in a big building, “Remembering the basics of C.Q.C.” stuff like that, at least that’s what i hope so, i hope Konami doesn’t cut that aspect just got to gameplay faster, i really hope they take advantage to show that Big Boss is human after all, that he needs at least to work out be able to go on field.

          Hell, maybe you’ll even stay in a Hospital Bed, being able to watch Classic 80’s Movies, like Rambo and the original Terminator.

    • Gatsu

      Some ways I have dreamed TPP start for quite some time, since GZ, is that:

      1. It directly continues from the GZ chopper collision scene. It does not crash, but was ended that way to believe it does. They barely manage to dodge it some miraculously way, keep flying for short time with Big Boss looking outside the chopper with a shocked face. In that moment we can also see IMO a wound above his right eye (in GDC trailer), where the shrapnel might have already entered his skull, only to later emerge during 9 years. Then he falls to coma soon after because of blood loss and horn-shrapnel and somehow they end up in the hospital.

      2. Starts right at the hospital where Big Boss is slowly opening his eye, which by the way looks amazing. Then later in the game, Big Boss gets flashback to the GZ ending and we see how the events unfold.

      3. From the coma table, “Don’t you die on me, dammit! What about him?”

      Personally I would like TPP to continue right from where GZ ends, but even so it maybe seems more likely a game-start scene from the hospital bed. Kind of a bit slow and peaceful start until the shit hits the fan, and for people who jump straight into TPP it might fit better, then get a flashback later.

      Some previews said starts at hospital, but they just might’ve skipped telling us about the GDC trailer scene. I am 100% sure they did not leave that beautiful scene out of the game. Definitely a flashback if we don’t see it at the beginning.

    • Tong Ninja

      From the previews, they said you start off with Big Boss in the hospital with Ishmael (pretty much the hospital demo back in 2012). Then after certain events, there is a flashback to when he awakens from the 9 year coma and he talks to the doctor. Then escape the hospital after the flashback.

      I reckon after he escapes the hospital, they will SLOWLY reveal what caused him to go into the coma through flashbacks as the game progresses (maybe when he suffers more knocks to head?).

      However, they might of cut out some of the cutscenes at the very beginning in the preview event so they don’t spoil that part. 🙂

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah this, the game is designed for anybody to play it and understand it, so the only way to do it is to start in the hospital so Big Boss is just as lost as the players, starting where GZ left off would confuse so many people and be awkward.

        Also if the scenes cut from the end of GZ where so important to not show in GZ than my assumption is that Kojima is hiding something and will not reveal it in TPP immediately, but instead will be an important reveal later.

    • Mini gear

      I think, (if no more after crash) when game first time boots up, black screen with title saying to start, then logo dissapers and secounds later we see through big boss seeing his eyes open for the first time in 9 years

  • MichaelPayneV

    Yong Mentioned in his “E3 2015” Trailer Analysis that the Second Monologue from the trailer, the first part of what everyone thinks is Ocelot (Including Yong and all of you) that he has a Southern Accent and sounds more younger!

    Now tell me, what more proof do you need that the second Monologue is not Ocelot, that YES, it is Troy Baker, but not Ocelot?

    • MrVux007

      im pretty sure that its still Ocelot…more proof that i need is the game itself 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Then you know absolutely nothing about Troy Baker’s Acting Carreer, just look at how many characters is voicing in the Arkham Games for example, for each Game.

        But i do have a question, if you say that it is still Ocelot, then tell me why do you think is Ocelot, what aspect of the monologue tells you it is Ocelot?

        • No Place For Hayter

          “Then you know absolutely nothing about Troy Baker’s Acting Career” Now now, play nice, just because he is not jumping on your theory does not mean he knows less, let alone nothing.

          I still think it is Ocelot, sounds like Ocelot to me, just sounds like a more relaxed narration version of Ocelot, Also in the Japanese version it is Ocelot being voiced byt the same person in the same way he has always been.

        • MrVux007

          First try not to be an utter cunt by saying what I know and not know ….I know his acting career. “what aspect of the monologue tells you it is Ocelot?”
          His voice?

          • MichaelPayneV

            So Ocelot sounds like young Roy Campbell now?

          • MrVux007

            he sounds like Ocelot :3 …

          • MichaelPayneV

            Young “Peace Walker/Ground Zeroes” Ocelot perhaps.

          • MrVux007

            lol dude,he sounds like Ocelot to ME….get over it

        • What’s Ugly and Eats Ham?

          Seriously some of you people latch on to ideas real quick. Its fuckin Ocelot with a different tone of voice. He’s told to act more dramatic in some cases and more subtle in others. The game comes out in a month and little, then you’ll see how you’re likely wrong.

        • What’s Ugly and Eats Ham?

          “What aspect of the monologue tells you its is Ocelot?”
          Umm…his voice?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then you are deaf.

    • Melyssa

      Some other minor character, then? If Kiefer voiced the medic, Baker can voice some other soldier…

    • solidsnack

      yeah as much as it sounds similar to ocelot i feel like troy baker is more talented to just have two completely separate voices for one character i mean he’s not gonna record half his lines and then decide to switch it up half way. i think you’re onto something, hell i wouldn’t mind more characters from him in TPP 🙂

      • MichaelPayneV

        Judging by the accent I would say Roy Campbell.

        • I thought exact same thing since first time i listened to it, he sounds like Campbell.

    • Tong Ninja

      Regarding the second monologue from the 2015 E3 trailer:

      Yes, he might not be Ocelot:

      1. He might be a soldier/civilian that was caught and tortured by Skull Face in the past. He managed to be rescued by Big Boss, and he is retelling his story about his time with Skull Face.

      2. Since Kiefer voiced Ishmael, maybe Troy voiced another semi-main support character. So do you reckon he is voicing a new character or someone we know?? if so who is he?

      ALTHOUGH he could still be Ocelot:

      1. Watching the Japanese Dub, the Japanese voice actor for Ocelot (Satoshi Mikami) is doing the second monologue. He sounds exactly the same as Ocelot for Japanese version (doesn’t sound younger at all).

      2. Kojima might of chosen this take instead of the finalised take of this particular dialogue for some weird reason. In the voice recording sessions, voice actors usually do 3-4 takes of the same dialogue for safety reasons. Then Kris Zimmerman would choose the best one out of the 3-4 takes and finalise it into the game. It’s possible Kojima chose a random take for the trailer haha.

      3. In the radio conversations in the recent demos, Ocelot did have a bit of a Southern accent (fits the Western cowboy stereotype).

      In my opinion, I think its safe to assume that it is Ocelot for now. I mean both of Troy Baker’s monologues talk about Skull Face. But there’s a good chance you could still be right, as Troy Baker is known to voice multiple characters in a single video game. We’ll find out when the game releases! 😀

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah the biggest thing is it IS Ocelot in the Japanese version.

        • Tong Ninja

          Yes, I think my first reasoning for why it is still Ocelot was sufficient enough! haha

        • MichaelPayneV

          It is just The Actor.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, the same actor voicing the sane character the same way. If it was a different character they would either have a different voice actor or use a different voice, not the same one. I honestly don’t know why a simply tonal change is enough to set the MGS community on fire with the absurd notion that it is a new character, I mean we have seen how many things involving the western version of the voice acting for TPP? we should be use to drastic change with out it actually meaning anything at all by now.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Or maybe the other character is a New character related to Ocelot, like a brother for example.

            Point is, that is not Ocelot, Troy Baker is a too good Actor to have 2 different voices for the same character, unless this is a younger Ocelot talking in disguise as a Southern, otherwise it can’t bee him.

          • No Place For Hayter

            You can believe that it is another character, but nothing makes it a fact, at best it is a theory. I don’t believe it, but that doesn’t mean you can’t, just don’t start sating it as fact when you only have one tonal change to support your idea.

    • FMercenary

      Since the first Ocelot monologue sounds less rough than the second one, it’s possible that the first one is narraration from the beginning of the game done by a slightly younger Ocelot.

        I was listening to some sad songs on youtube . Until suddenly i saw your comment in Silent hill 2 Ost. My heart is still broken man.. I tried every single day to forget about konami and silent hills But i simply Can’t .. Peace Brother

        • No Place For Hayter

          The miracle never happen 🙁

          • Gatsu

        • Gatsu

          Thanks brother Joaquin for kind words ;)… Yeah I can’t put it in words how happy I was about Silent Hills with that dream team. And the dream’s crushed now. My hearts still broken about it too :(. I can maybe forgive Konami for removing Kojima’s name on TPP one day, because his name is still all over in the game and it’s 100% his game.

          But I will never forgive them for cancelling Silent Hills after all the hype ;O…. Without giving it a chance.

          Actually now when listening Theme of Laura again, it makes me SOOO much want to replay SH1-3 again. Might do it this week 😀 because it has been a long time! I just…I just miss good Japanese horror games, 90’s and early 2000 was amazing time with RE and SH.

          It gave me super goosebumps when heard part of this too in the end of PT’s SH reveal…

          Makes me happy though, that the Hospital prologue is similar to Silent Hill craziness. According to the previews.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Theme of Laura makes me cry although I never played it

          • Gatsu

            You should! If there is any way you can play Silent Hill games, I highly recommend it :). SH1 is a bit old (for PS1), but all of them can be played on PS3 I think. My favorite are 1-3, but Silent Hill 2 the best one :D! Later SH development switched to Americans, and they didn’t do such a good job with the games imo.

            I remember how mind blown I was after seeing Silent Hill 2 graphics and lighting in dark hallways etc ;). They had amazing voice acting too :D, especially in SH 2 and it has Donna Burke voicing Angela! Entering that foggy town was always so awesome+scary :O!

          • Tong Ninja

            Donna Burke also voiced and did the motion capture for Claudia (villain)
            in Silent Hill 3!
            😀

            Silent Hill 2 and 3 were my favourite out of the franchise! 🙂

  • Mr.Pony

    Since the last gameplays all I can think is how much Rambo-esque we can be in TPP.

    Bandana – Check
    Naked Cammo – Check
    Machine gun – Check
    Afghanistan – Check
    Helicopters – Check
    Russians – Check
    Explosions – Check

    All is left is bow and arrow xD

    • Gatsu

      Damn right :D, can’t wait to go full rambo in TPP. I bet we can have a bow also, to shoot them choppers down.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        A crossbow like black ops?

        • Mr.Pony

          Only if it fires bananas

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          • Mr.Pony

            Man you must have some mixed feelings about TPP then, since it draws so much from PW xD

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            I won’t use Fulton at all actually coz I’m annoyed by people saying it is real when it doesn’t work at all like the real Fulton.I will use Fulton only for dd and vehicles.If only we had a Lockheed instead of a heli

          • Mr.Pony

            You realize then that you won’t upgrade/unlock anything at all then right?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Huh?

          • Mr.Pony

            If you don’t use Fulton you don’t get soldiers, if you don’t have soldiers you don’t upgrade Mother Base departments, if you don’t upgrade Mother Base departments you don’t unlock/upgrade gear and weapons

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            By using ma chopper Pequot my wife

          • Solid PhoeniX

            The way TPP makes use of the Fulton is a bit Unrealistic. Makes the game Fun though and there are missions that require you to Fulton Soldiers. But it would be cool if there were missions that required you to recruit soldiers but with Fulton disabled. In GZ I didn’t just load POW’s into the Chopter but soldiers too

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

  • J_muse72

    Ok, another question that has been eating me away… do you think we can play as Ocelot?! I mean why not!! You can play as Diamond Dogs like in PW! Why not go out with a bigger bang and let us play as other key characters. At least in free roam.
    That would be awesome!

    • BurntFM

      I sure hope so. I mean, in GZ you can play as Raiden with the added ability to run fast, but I wish they would have implemented a jump function. But playing a side op as Ocelot would be really cool. As long as it’s not an interrogation mission :S

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Actually, Raiden can do a big jump from one warehouse roof to another 😉

        • BurntFM

          I mean like a dedicated jump button. That move is just big Boss’ animation with greater parameters. Just like the run.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            I got that, was just being(failing) funny. in MGS Special Missions when you played with gray fox X button wouldn’t go to prone but flip-jump. They should do the same in MGS5

    • You can play as Ocelot on MGO. That much is confirmed.

      • J_muse72

        I can’t wait to twirl revolvers in MGO! But beating the story comes first!

        • Defiantly, I’m not worried about the shortage of news on MGO because I’m so ready for the story. Although afterwards I’m sure that’s where most of my time will go. Hopefully I can play with most of y’all here.

          • J_muse72

            Me too. We are all one big family!

    • Ravenous

      That would indeed be awsome 🙂
      And it’s not impossible, we’ve already been told that we can choose to play as DD-soldiers in sideops and possibly free-roam, and Ocelot being playable in MGO, why shouldn’t we be able to atleast free-roam sith him and possibly others? 🙂

    • MeLand127

      Well, they must be already created the animation for ocelot mgo. So why no use it for singleplayer as well right? 😉

    • Tong Ninja

      All I want is a side op involving going on a date with Ocelot. haha

  • Ravenous

    Speaking of Silent Hills (saw it mentioned abit further down in the comments), what do you guys think of this: Norman Reedus could potentially be voicing a character or appear visually in TPP considering he had a contract with Konami, right?

    I mean, would it take three, six or more months on a contract to make the 5 seconds we get to see his face in P.T?
    And Kojima being in charge of both P.T, Silent Hills and TPP along with his fascination of anything Hollywood, would he pass up an opportunity to have Reedus add something to TPP in some form if that was possible? They already had to do mocap and use their camera-rig to get Reedus’ likeness into the Fox Engine for P.T, so would it be that far-fetched to suspect that he might show up in TPP as some character or another?

    What do you guys think?

    • Although the idea is cool, It would cost to much money & I really think Konami isn’t trying to help Kojima any more these days.

      • Ravenous

        No no, if Kojima used Reedus in TPP, it would’ve had to happen while he was still in the contract, and as we already know, the contract was over some time before April this year 😉
        Wasn’t that around the time where the whole Kojima-Konami thing started out?

        And if the contract expired in or around April…that would mean that Reedus was available from some time before P.T released (August last year) which is early enough to still be plausible 🙂

    • Tong Ninja

      Yes they already scanned his face and body for Silent Hills, so they can easily put him into TPP. Also he has already done some motion/facial capture scenes for Silent Hills before it got cancelled.

      Although they will have to ask Norman Reedus for permission of course (to avoid being sued, but Norman seems like a super nice guy, haha so I’m sure he would love to be in a video game). Norman had a lot of praise for the TPP E3 Trailer back in 2014. 😀

      One of the media outlets that played at the preview event, mentioned a P.T. easter egg via radio conversation between two soldiers. So it’s possible, but I wouldn’t have any high hopes though. So don’t expect him to be in the game. 🙂

      • Shiragama

        Oh man, now I really want him to be in the game 🙁 At least as a normal soldier, nothing too earth-shattering but as an easter egg.

        • Tong Ninja

          Yeah, as a soldier recruit (with a crossbow if possible!). 🙂

    Hey, just found another theory about all removable name of Kojima, very cool indeed 😀

    • Tong Ninja

      haha, someone posted this theory a few months ago on this site. 🙂
      But yeah, sounds like Kojima was foreshadowing his debacle with Konami in Ground Zeroes.

      • MeLand127

        ahh… I’m late, oh well haha. KOJIMA Is genius

    • Damn man I never thought of that playing déja vu. Check this out. I ordered in these posters in this week and didn’t realise…. There’s no Hideo Kojima game in them.

      • Feel ripped off

      • MeLand127

        very hurt indeed, with no Kojima name’s in it 🙁

    Salaam and Hello people,

    For any brothers or sisters who have been waiting to pre-order the limited edition ps4 in the UK… Heads up. Game.co.uk are now taking pre-orders for the console! Price is £364.99 if I remember correctly. Check the website and get it ordered!

    I had problems using Paypal (useless website game.co.uk have) so probably bets using a credit or debit card!

    Enjoy

    • SholidOnline

      As soon as MGS5 collector’s edition was out there, I pre-ordered from that site, scared I’d miss it in North America. It wasn’t long until I got it at EB games, pre-ordered, and cancelled that over-$200 UK edition. So either Europe costs too much, or that site overcharges. Watch yourselves.

      • Killainstinct

        Are we taking about the actual console?

        PS4 console bundles are £349

        I’m taking about the red and gold limited edition PS4 console being available for pre-order. The game and limited edition game packs have been available for a while

        • SholidOnline

          I’m talking about my experience with that site and the original MGS5 TPP CE.

          • Killainstinct

            I see, I have heard a few horror stories about game in general in the UK.

            However it’s the only place I can preorder the console itself in the UK

          • SholidOnline

            Understandable. I looked at their stock of MGS5 PS4s. Looks pretty good.

    Just wanted to share this. How do you like it? 🙂
    http://lobotriste.deviantart.com/art/SkullLady-Final-547868085

    The colors are not the same, but i think cold colors fit better in the nature of what a Skull Lady is.
    There are a few flaws, for example, the red line from the light is a bit curvey.
    Made from scratch. 2 weeks of work and patience.
    The purchaser/donator downloadable version is 3700×2100 resolution, so you can make a print of it and put into a framed picture in your room. ^ ^

    I hope someone like it!
    I will do more each 1-2 weeks and share with all of you. (Always that is related to MGS world, of course)

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • BurntFM

      Well even if I don’t agree with him, he has a valid concern. I mean, we truly don’t know how any game is going to turn out until we play it and make a judgment call whether is good or bad based on our experience with it. I can see why some people would be cautious and I think we should all be cautious of games in general. The past games have been a success in the eyes of the fans because we look at it as a collective of Kojima’s work. If we look at them individually, some are weaker than others in terms of story and gameplay mechanics. If a person’s only experience with a MGS game has been one that they’re not particularly fond of, then MGSV won’t generate the same hype as people who think favorably of all the games in the franchise. I think it’s a pretty good article to read, not just for MGS but game sequels in general.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, it becomes bad when the story of your game is to only fill out a timeline, and that is what franchises turn into, filler games to tell us what we already know and to give us the same gameplay. And that is why I like Kojiima so much, his is always pushing the envelop and doing something new with his games, and his stories have themes and messages and are not simply meant to be timeline filler.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Doesn’t like PW’s story? In other words I do not agree with his opinion, lol, I do not know why PW gets so much flak when to me it is up to par with the story of the first 3 games.

      The article is greatly misinterpreting PW and the elements he calls fan-service, which are not fan-service, in MGS4 yes lots of fan service, in PW no.

      Also a simple story does not mean a stronger or better one, IMO MGS2 had the strongest narrative, but MGS3 had the most intriguing and insightful and thus my favorite .

      I think the biggest mistake the article makes is trying to judge MGS games together as a single narrative. Having the outcome of the story already known does not matter when the games story is not simple filler. Kojimas games are not made as a series, they are made as individual games and should be played and viewed as such, it is inaccurate to judge the story of a prequel because we know where the story is going because what is to come has nothing to do with the story Kojima wants to tell within this story of his, what he wants to tell and how he wants to tell it will all be alone in the game it will not rely on past of future games. This also leads into the articles misunderstanding of PW’s “fan-service”, he thinks because we have played MGS3 we are good to play PW, but no PW is meant to be played as a stand alone, so while it helps to have played MGS3 it is not required as PW tells you everything, imagine playing PW without playing MGS3 and have PW not have any flashbacks to MGS3 and The Boss, the game would make far less sense and be really ridiculous simply because we could not understand Big Boss, PW plays up their relationship because it is center stage of the story NOT for fan service.

      The only MGS which had a “bad” story is GZ, and that is the most recent one AND THAT has me worried about TPP’s story, nothing I have seen from TPP has been bad in anyway as far as story goes but it does worry me considering how bad GZ was. Even MGS4 did not have a “bad” story it was just a mess and become even worse when connected to the rest of the series, but it wasn’t bad.

      • Janeo

        I completely agree about peace walker, it was the second mgs game I ever played and if it didn’t show flashbacks to mgs3 then I would have had no idea what was going on, I love peace walker and I have never understood why people didn’t like it, I have heard many talk about how much they hate the characters and how simple the story is but I have never felt that, I love the characters and the story and I don’t think it’s simple at all.
        I do disagree about GZ though, I didn’t think it was a bad story at all. Obviously it wasn’t the deepest story but with the length I think it was a great story, I just love all the darkness and there are so many things going on, what didn’t you like about the story or game anyway?

        • No Place For Hayter

          Thankfully GZ is pretty small so I can sum up what I think, lol. I think my very first post ever on this site was a list of things I disliked from GZ, lol.

          The first thing I dislike is how the characters are, they are all a bit angry and not very bright, I mean Big Boss is unresponsive as all hell and Kaz is mad at everyone, specifically Paz, and that’ the broken part. In PW Kaz knew who she was all along and so would not feel betrayed or angry over the outcome of her actions, but in GZ is is made as hell and is ready to kill her. Even Big Boss has a soft spot for Paz, everybody liked her and was heartbroken (not angry) that she was a spy, but in GZ everyone hates her when they didn’t before.

          Big Boss, Paz, and Chico show up on a helicopter to a destroyed mother base, and so Kaz gets on board and sees them all. So what does he do? he knows someone spilled the beans on what was going on and got them all killed, so what does he do? He gets angry at Paz, the super special triple agent who had a soft spot for MSF and has been under torture for a while, she is the last person on the helicopter to break under the torture, Kaz completely ignores the weak willed and recently captured Chico (whom has been captured before, AND DID THE SAME THING, he broke under the pressure and got people killed). It is pretty obvious that Chico is the one whom spilled the beans not Paz and yet Kaz goes ape shit on Paz for some reason.

          I think the reason the characters are so flawed is because they are acting like their TPP counterparts, aka 9 years into the tortured future, which will be fine then but to have an over angry Kaz and a silent unresponsive Big Boss literally one month after PW is absurd.

          The other main point of complaint (and my last, I could point out a whole bunch of other things, but those will branch out outside just the story as they gointo the game itself and the gameplay, menus, etc) is how the dark content in the game is managed, IMO it is done very poorly. For example Skull Face is portrayed as dark and evil, how? by telling us he tortures and rapes people, very shallow and poorly done, “he is so evil look at him doing evil things” having an evil dark character is not a simple thing and cannot be portrayed as simple like Skull Face is in GZ. Again this stems from the fact that Skull Face’s character is important in TPP and thus they can’t tell us or show us anything in GZ, but that in itself is a problem and breaks GZ as it needs TPP to help build what it has. Another example is the audio tapes in which anything “dark” is hidden behind, GZ is not very dark at all, you go in rescue two prisoners whom have been beat up and you go home and you find out home is destroyed and Paz blows up and end, anything dark is hidden behind audio tapes, if Kojima wants to cross the line into mature and seriously dark story telling hiding behind audio tapes is only treading the line and is not truly a step anywhere other than holding your story back. the only dark thing in GZ is kind of absurd and thus really has no effect on me, that is of course Paz’s gut bomb, this is why the scene is ridiculous for me. First Chico finds a scar on Paz and so Big Boss calls the medic (so good as is well with the world) but then suddenly out of no where Big Boss is screaming about being set up and how she is rigged (ok what? what makes Big Boss think she has a bomb in her? and even if so why is he totally freaking out like he rarely has ever done before? I mean even a few minutes later he sees Mother Base destroyed and he doesn’t freak? what is that?) accepting the psychic factor of Big Boss and moving on they start working on Paz and the medic states there is no time for any anesthetic (ok seriously? why not? it is not like there is a bomb timer on her gut that reads 5 seconds, the medic hesitates and takes him time the whole way but he states there is no time for anesthetic, which is a lie and is only there to make the scene appear more dark than it actually is “omg look at Paz suffer, ahhahahahah” it is simply ridicules that they expect me to believe that there is no time for any anesthetic, nothing gives that impressive and is an odd out of place line for the medic, first time I heard it I was like “what? why not? are you serious?” he is a combat medic and he is careless and shows no care for Paz and nearly kills her to simply get the supposed bomb out of her).

          Those are my main story reasons, lol, kind of long but I skipped most of the stuff and stuck with the two big ones, if you really want to go indepth with what I dislike about GZ here is a huge commentary by Wolfe over on Meta Gear, this commentary I completely agree with and talks about almost all of my complaints about GZ.

          http://metagearsolid.org/2014/03/metal-gear-solid-v-ground-zeroes/

          • Janeo

            I did think Kaz being so angry over Paz was weird at first since he knew who she was all along but the way I look at it is he still grew close to Paz and maybe thought she felt the same way about msf so when she stole Zeke and tried to kill big boss it still hurt Kaz. They were all heartbroken at the end of peace walker but it’s been about 6 months since then so maybe they have had time to think since then and that heart break has turned to anger. I felt like Big Boss did still have a soft spot for Paz even though he tries not to show it.
            For the helicopter part where Kaz is angry at Paz instead of Chico I just see that as him knowing that Chico would talk and if it wasn’t for Paz they wouldn’t have had Chico in the first place so Paz is still to blame, plus a lot of things happen in that short time so it would be hard to keep a straight head, even Big Boss is stunned at what’s happening.
            I do agree with you about the not putting Paz to sleep thing, Big Boss even had his tranquilizer if they had no time but the scene is a lot more impactful with her awake, I can hardly even get through that scene without looking away.
            I really loved GZ anyway, it felt like a nice little epilogue to peace walker and it may not have been as dark for everyone but it was at least a start to show what will come in TPP. I guess everyone sees the tapes differently as well because when I listened it didn’t seem like anyone was getting raped to me

          • No Place For Hayter

            I don’t worry about TPP and its dark content, because I think GZ did not do it right, because it didn’t want to, I think Kojima was saving anything special for TPP and not GZ.

            As far as the rape thing goes, lol, most people think Chico was forced to rape Paz (even media outlets) when he didn’t. If you listen to all the sounds in the audio tapes you can hear Paz being raped by nameless soldiers, but it is hidden and nobody screams rape, and Chico does not rape Paz.

          • The Reaver

            The bomb thing seemed more realistic to me. Snake is an espionage expert, and so I figured it wouldn’t take much for him to recognize a very recent, very artificial, and very wide scar as something a particulary torturous and manipulative enemy would use to stuff a dangerous object inside someone. Snake said it himself that he knew they were trying lure him into a trap, and Paz was trying to warn Snake that there was a bomb inside her whIle he was rescuing her.

            As for the anesthetic thing, I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure that anesthetics need to do more than simply put someone to sleep, it’s a gas that numbs and paralyzes the body, and doing so takes time and equipment, and taking your time is not something you would want to do when you learn that you’re trapped in a helicopter with a live bomb of indeterminate duration. Yeah, they didn’t actually know when it would detonate, but that was the very reason they needed to get rid of it ASAP, because it wold be a huge, deadly risk to just wait it out until they can get the anesthetics ready.

      • Chem

        I agree, the people must not try to judge the MGS games as a single narrative, also i understand your concerns about TPP story considering GZ story, but i think that in this case maybe there are more things behind GZ story that we don’t know yet (not conspiracy stuff), and those thing are going to be shown in TPP (maybe falshbacks and that thing that Kojima said that anyone have done before in the industry), in my opinion even if GZ was sold separetely, we must consider GZ and TPP one whole game so in matter of history i’m going to reserve my final opinion on GZ story after playing TPP.

  • kirtanloorii

    Lol. The media is making a big deal about the hints in GZ about Kojima’s departure. But I was thinking, isn’t this old news? Didn’t the MGS community already discover this a few months ago? Gamespot just figured this out yesterday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuCzWJ-_SK4

          EPIC. but that line of Skull Faces kind of confuses me, he talks about freeing the world from controlling self interested powers by destroying common language this separating every culture from each other (another Tower of Babel if you will), but then he mentions binding the world together as one in that one line.

      Don’t forget a lot of the footage is speeded up so the intervals between these phrases are closer together. The humming is annoying though but I’m sure i’ve heard that you can get Quiet to stop this.

    • Ravenous

      Quiet’s humming can probably be lowered in volume without any loss, and hopefully they reduce the amount by release-time, once every 10-15 seconds on the same target is enough IMHO

      Regarding “And I think the same about having BB saying “yiha” every 5 seconds when he rides D-horse…” I’m hoping it’s because Jackie was pushing the horse to make it sprint all the time, and that BB won’t say anything unless you push whatever button makes the horse speed up Oo

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, a lot of people dislike Quiets humming, me on the other hand, I love it, its great 🙂

      But I do agree with the too many interruptions for annoying or pointless information though, I hope it isn’t too much in the actually game.

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    Do you know that clip in the trailer that you see, when those African kids hand Snake diamonds, you see them back away looking scared and then it cuts to Snake firing his rifle……. please tell me that he doesn’t kill those kids. I know he’s going to descend into darkness and become a demon. But I know Snake, no matter his actions, what he does, he’s good in his heart. He’s a fallen hero…. but still a hero.

    • FMercenary

      Only one way to find out and that’s some time after September 1st. Only around 40 days to go! Woooh! 😛

    • Eugene Voldo

      I think it’s the right time to post a quote from MGS: Ghost Babel.
      Campbell: «Snake, come with me to Gindra. We need you. We need the ‘Legend.’»
      Snake: «Don’t call me that. I know all the names for a killer, and that’s one of them.»

      >he’s good in his heart

      Don’t think so. He’s a killer and he acknowledges this simple fact himself. It’s his profession. His raison d’etre. In my opinion one of the biggest problem with PW plot is that Kojima couldn’t show Snake in a really bad light. GZ didn’t do anything with Snake character too. He is still a hero. Then what’s the point of prequels? To show how cool and good and noble Snake is? I hope that TPP will do something really nasty with character development of Snake.

      • Mini gear

        is ghost babel canon? and wasn’t that solid?

        • Eugene Voldo

          No, it’s sadly not canon. But there are a lot of good lines worthy enough
          to be quoted. And yes, it’s Solid Snake. My remark about Snake being
          killer is actually unrelated to the quote. I used this quote only because of
          the username “LetTheLegendComeBackToLife” and a word Legend in it.

      • No Place For Hayter

        The stories are not about how good/bad or heroic/evil the characters are, that is simply whom they are and how they react in such a story. the stories hold no obligation to show any character in a good or bad light, and it should not be a point for or against any story for such a thing unless the character contradict the story or scenario, which has not happened. PW had nothing to do with anything really negative (I mean its theme is PEACE after all) and it stuck Big Boss is a personal position and a positive one where is was actually building the PMC he always dreamed of, the outer heaven for soldiers, it would have been out of place and against the story and its scenario if Big Boss was shown in a really bad light. In such a scenario Big Boss would not be an evil or bad man, it would break the character to have him be shown in a really bad light in that game.

        • Eugene Voldo

          I understand your point. But still we already know who Big Boss is and
          what Outer Heaven is. MGS3 covered all details pretty well. The final cut-scene
          where Snake didn’t shake president’s hand was absolutely perfect. We even know
          why and what for Big Boss created Outer Heaven, thanks to MGS4. We know all of
          his motivations. And then BAM – here’s a Peace Walker which in my opinion only
          tainted MGS3 legacy and especially Boss character (*sigh* yeah, that singing
          tank was an AWFUL IDEA). It added almost NOTHING to overall lore. Except for billions of new characters. Which is why a lot of people who didn’t play PW couldn’t
          really understand who Chico and Paz is in GZ and why they should care about
          them. I mean, if you’re not planning to give your main character any
          development for almost two games, then maybe it’s time to stop? Nope, said
          Kojima. That’s why I’m a little grumpy and think that Kojima should
          have started a new canon with new cast of characters instead of digging Big
          Boss’ past 🙁

          • No Place For Hayter

            I understand what you are saying, but personally I’m glad PW didn’t add to the overall lore, Kojima wanted to tell a specific story with a theme of peace, it would only go against his story if he tried to make it fit only within what we knew of the timeline events. Kojima is the last person to confine himself within his series, Kojima does not see his series as one story which he needs to add to or build off of he builds his games individually, which can be a bad thing for people whom want more of the overall lore and story because Kojima does not really support that, the only game that did was MGS4 which Kojima was almost forced into explaining and ending the overall lore.

            Though I do agree that a new series would be perfect for Kojima, I would blame Konami and KP for this one. On one hand KP has shown that they can’t make MGS without Kojima, and on the other hand you have Konami which would most likely not support Kojimas next game if it isn’t a MGS game, and so we end up with Kojima making the game and story he wants within the confines of the MGS universe, another individual entry that is designed to be taken solely by itself and not as a whole series.

    • Chem

      i think he is not killing those childs, at least not in that scene, in my opinion he is shooting the jail to set them free, since we saw those kids going to mother base maybe this happens right before that scene in the Nuclear trailer.

      Also remember what Big Boss said in MG2 about the kids in Zanzibar land, he said that those kids where victims of war and orphans, and they will be soldier in the future repeating the cicle, so i think that Big Boss is rescuing the childrens, but not in a “heroic way” but to use them as soldiers in the future. This is just my theory thou…

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah WAY to many people assume he is shooting the kids. I’m going to put this as bluntly as possible, if Big Boss kills those kids in TPP it will be incredibly stupid, if he does it the good way he saves them and sets them free, if is does it the bad way he keeps them alive and uses them, but there is no possible reason for him to be killing the kids, like wtf why would anyone think that. There was even one media outlet that played far enough in TPP that they played a mission where they rescued (not killed) a whole bunch of African children, so that’s a fact right there, Big Boss saves the African children (presumably to use them for his war of course) he does not kill them, that one media outlet has already told us this so I was hoping this misconception would go away but alas this is MGS community and they don’t stop running with crazies ideas EVER, lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Don’t worry he doesn’t. If you want details you can look to my reply to Chem, I explain in that comment.

  • Gordon Freeman

    To celebrate almost 1000 comments, you guys should start a new poll and ask people for which platform they will get MGSV.

    • MrVux007

      i think that poll was already on

      • Gordon Freeman

        There was one for Ground Zeroes, but not for PP

        • No Place For Hayter

          There was one for TPP, lol.

          • Gordon Freeman

            nope, there was one for MGS GZ, one for MGS V back in 2013 and one for PP asking which edition people would buy

          • No Place For Hayter

            The one back in 2013 is the one I’m referring to, the poll came up after TPP was revealed as MSGV and thus the poll is about MGSV-TPP, just because it does not have the subtitle TPP does not mean it is about TPP, remember at the time nobody knew the nature of GZ and how it was seperated from TPP, hence why the poll asked about “MSGV” and not “MGSV-TPP”

          • Gordon Freeman

            That Is exactly what I want. You keep bringing up the old poll. Just shut up !^^

          • No Place For Hayter

            Sorry >.< (LOL). Agreed a new poll would be a good idea, one last "what console did you buy/are you going to buy TPP for" before release, and after that we could have a poll about how we would rate the game"1-10" with an actually rating not this "7-10" rating that the industry uses.

    • BurntFM

      Please elaborate….

      • NakedSnake85

        Well i dont know i may be completely wrong about all that stuff. but long comment incoming

        • NakedSnake85

          So here goes.

          It will be a long personal comment so please to all of you that may disagree please be patient and dont hate on anything i have to say. So here goes.

          Kojima is a brilliant developer / director / story teller. He broke the forth wall multiple times during the series and he created a legacy that haunts in a good way to this day. The past three years cemented this reputation imo. I am going to try and create a timeline on how i experienced some things during these three years as i follwed the built up for the game closely. Watching countless analysis videos from Yong Yea Python Selkan and all these dudes that are trying to “make ” the series their own a thing that bugs me to be honest. I trust my knowledge of the series cause i am a hardcore fan since 1998 when i bought metal gear solid by accident :p

          So here goes ( and sorry about my english..its my secondary language but hey at least im trying hard )

          So. The whole concept of promoting Ground Zeroes and phantom pain was at least bizzare.

          Kojima couldnt make it to E3 2011. so he showed a demo using the fox engine. So the plot was allready in his mind. i also remember a photo of a ponytailed person in front of tank.Many assumed it was the boss. But it wasnt.

          Much later in 2012 Kojima announced Metal Gear solid Ground Zeroes. A title that it had allready not only a full concept art , promo videos and demos , but it looked nothing like the demo he showed using the same engine. due to the different setting.Im trying to say that from the begining it was his decision that he wanted Ground Zeroes to be a whole differetnt title (not game ) than phantom pain.

          Then a strange game made by an unknown studio made its debut. WIth different artwork different logo than ground zeroes. His intension was not to publish these games together. To me its preety obvious. Then its revealed that the phantom pain is Metal Gear Solid V. combined with ground zeroes.

          im gonna sum up the timeline that followed and at the same time i think that kojima wants us to feel just like the main character in the game.: hold that thought

          1) Fake studio that develops a title called phantom pain that the main protagonist looks like snake but “its not a metal gear”

          2) kojima denies his involvement with this phantom pain title even though the title uses the fox engine.

          3) kojima announces ground zeroes as a metal gear title

          4) then the phantom pain becomes a metal gear title

          5 ) kojima states that ground zeroes and the phantom pain are the same game

          6) hayter tweets on April fools day about the end of his journey as the voice actor of snake

          7) then they become separate titles

          8) he removes Hayter as the voice of snake and an explosion of fan rage comes afterwards..

          9) conspiracy all over regarding the main protagonist of the game – iSHMAEL big boss – GRAY FOX – solidus etc

          10) kiefer sutherland as snake is revealed with a cold disturbing video with avi arad literally insulting David Hayter even though these two are good friends… avi arad even Named Hayters daughter

          11) countless tweets and posts from hayter not letting go his Snake status even though its weird that this thing drags on and on and on especially the way he was treated by kojima/ konami

          12) a possible remake of Metal Gear gets aprooval from kojima but eventually is cancelled by Konami ( Hayter was to provide the voice of big boss/ solid snake)

          13) kojima and konami deliberatelly refused to announce a release date for the title despite the fact that they stated multiple times that a major announcement will come in the next months weeks days etc… ( chicken cap )

          Finally. i think you are all familiar with deja vu mission by now.Remember the markings?

          The markings are titles of MGS games. You can only erase the ones that were directed by Kojima. There are markings of other games that he didn’t direct but you can’t erase those.also there are several searchlights with the “kojima productions logo” miller says” kojima productions? what does it mean?”.This was obviously either a clue, another part of this pattern or he somehow knew 2 years ago that he was going to be fired/quit. I doubt it.

          Miller also says “you might be able to erase the markings but the memories will never disappear.”

          Without this news about Kojima’s name being removed from the game that side mission makes zero sense. I never knew what the hell it meant until the past few days. It’s genius!

          the official release date comes and somehow kojima is fired or quiting Konami even though that the game is still in development and 5 months away…
          those types of decisions are made after the release of the game.. theres no way that a company like konami made this huge mistake now that may upset the fans all over the world BEFORE THE RELEASE OF PHANTOM PAIN.Plus Removing Kojimas name from past titles?who does that?its the most suspicious move that makes me think this is all a play.. a staged event… they are not THAT stupid.. Its just kojima is giving everything hes got this time around to cause rage betrayal confusion and to mislead everyone..Phantom Pain is a state that a person is missing a limb a leg a finger etc but he thinks and hes sure that the part somehow IS STILL THERE!
          ITS ALL A RUSE.. its a theme that brings V within real life.. Kojima wants the fans too feel betrayed.. and to seek revenge.. Dont you see? Kojima tries something noone tried before.. its a brave/reckless move that it might backlash and lead kojima out of the industry.

          Now Big Boss.
          He was in a coma only once as kojima stated. I believe that was even before peace walker during the les enfants teribles project. If GZ snake is big boss (not sure about that) he has others bones teeth and also steel in his body from the paz explosion (!) if those (canavero) theories are true about the head transplant the technically the preson that falls in the coma is not big boss cause he is either using someone elses body to move around or somebody else takes his place as the real big boss remains in a coma… So im gonna return to one of the first things i wrote in these comment. IMO Ground Zeroes and phantom pain deliberately realesead apart from each other. Its as if kojima wanted us the players play GZ a long time before the phantom pain and either forget about it just like “snake” or replay it like maniacs just to make us justify a false event in to our minds as the truth. Remember that GZ recreates history with pseudo historic events as 75% of its missions are not happening the way they actually did. With all the flares the weird light glitches and the plot that makes no sense even today im absolutely sure that ground zeroes has a post traumatic nature and its A WAY TO control someones subconsious as Ocelot and Skullface stated during the 2015E3 trailer. So i think that Venom is not Big Boss at all. Venom is a person led to believe he is big boss for reasons we re going to find out during the phantom pain.Recreating a phantom in his mind called skullface that actually doesnt exist. im sure that gradually big boss somehow will turn into skullface during the game. He will finally accept his new self creating Outer Heaven that has a Skull (face) as its logo. Maybe during the end the real big boss shows up meaning that diamond dogs may battle with outer heaven in the end. im not sure though who is who.. is venom going to be outer heavens snake or diamond dogs ‘ snake…
          phew.. i will add more things to this comment later. for sure

          • No Place For Hayter

            IMO he is Big Boss. I’m not going to get lost among pages and pages of in depth theories and true MSG insanity, lol, so I’m only going to say that lets not forget that the artbook itself tells us that “Punished “Venom” Snake” is Big Boss.

          • NakedSnake85

            Well in Mgs artwork Miller was shown too but he was allready dead :/ Well i dont want Venom Not to be Big Boss. It makes more sense to me if big boss is going to be the main character of the game . Im just stating some facts that are strange the least : )

          • No Place For Hayter

            It makes sense for Miller to be there as he was indirectly apart of the game, and they still needed art for the character and people still needed to know who he was, so it makes sense. What would be broken is if it showed artwork for Liquid dressed as Miller and than calls him Miller and describes Millers background, but it doesn’t do that, as it is outside the story of the game, and that is another reason why, it is outside the story of the game so it doesn’t matter if he is dead or not, as long as he was drawn and is related to the game that was developed he will be in it.

          • NakedSnake85

            well yes but the same reasons u just gave for “miller” being there are applicable to why “big boss” is there : /
            But seriously im not trying to prove anything here.. as i said i am propably wrong !

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, but the artbook calls Big Boss “Punished “Venom” Snake”.

          • BurntFM

            That was a pretty fun read. I see where you’re coming from but the only think I could say to that is that the game’s plot, the MGS story, the motivation would be meaningless. If the main character isn’t Big Boss, nothing you do would carry the emotional impact that watching him transition from the Hero in Snake Eater to the Villain in Metal Gear and finally to the redeemed old man in Guns of the Patriots. None of his emotional baggage of his relationship with The Boss, losing the nation he built with MSF all the sacrifices he made would be for nothing if you’re not playing as Big Boss. The plot would fall apart, the themes of “revenge” and “retaliation” would fall apart. Meeting Eli and learning about “Les Enfants Terribles” would have no bearing on the character. “Kaz, I’m already a demon” would be meaningless if it’s some random new character that we have not invested emotionally with all these years. How does a new character justify his motive if it’s Big Boss who suffered the most and needs to experience this specific point in time. The 80’s is where he met some of the most important characters of the MGS Saga: Naomi Hunter and Frank Jagger. Naomi being the one injecting Solid Snake with FOX DIE and in MGS4 well….Nanomachines, son! Frank Jagger being Big Boss’ greatest prodigy Gray Fox. So him not being the one experiencing all of this makes for a very unsatisfying ending in MGS4 because if Big Boss didn’t do any of that, that man standing in front of Old Snake didn’t atone for his deeds and didn’t understand The Boss’ will in his final moments. Just take these things into consideration.

          • NakedSnake85

            well you sure have a point in all of these things you mentioned.. be sure that i did took all these facts into consideration. and i agree with you. as i said it just what all these years of this strange publicity built up made feel about the game : )

          • BurntFM

            Trust me, I get it. I don’t know if my body is ready but with 40 days left, I’m having dreams about playing the game. I could write a whole fanfic from that alone. lol.

          • NakedSnake85

            some things that are food for though.
            The novel Mody Dick has a theme of a captain that loses his ship and a ghost narrator (ishmael) is the mean that drives the narrative going throughout the novel.. In my opinion Ishmael and skullface have this role during the phantom pain inside venoms mind.
            IMO some things in GZ dont make any sense at all.. I find chicos behaviour suspicious. He kind of freaks out when he sees big boss. i get the fact that he was feeling scared or traumatized.. but i dont get why he lied to snake about paz. he said that someone killed paz right in front of him when skullface literally told him that he kept his word and she didnt suffered long…so he lied.. uuum okay.. he was freaked out but 10 minutes later he s magically ok and he informs snake that paz has a bomb inside of her.. how? he saw it? he heard it? cause correct me if im wrong the bomb made no sound during the time when it was inside of paz. Snake instantly realized that she was rigged… again how? he didnt know what was inside of paz. Medic shares the same voice with big boss… why? medic doesnt show his face not even once. why? medic is absent during the credits. why? how could things that they are part of pseudo historic recreations actually fit into cannon..? Kaz mentions that he couldnt believe that they fell right into paz’s trap/.. but he allready knew.. also i dont get the fact why kaz is so mad at paz. Paz was a triple agent and he knew it. he seems shocked but he forgets all about chico who was possibly equally to blame about what happened to mother base.. Snake looks and behaves weird even though gz is only weeks(?) after peace walker.. he is silent he doesnt participate a lot in whats happening around him even though this is an aspect of the upcoming game but snake behaves just as his phantom pain self before there is the need to behave like this at all. food for thought..

          • Don’t forget the fact that maybe, Hayter is going to talk as Big Boss himself in the final game.

            I started thinking that he is Solidus, led to believe that he is Big Boss, till MGS2, and Ocelot shows him the truth in the final moments.

            Then i started (or felt biased) to think that he could be another new character (the Medic, for example) and finally to think that he could be Gray Fox due the lattest videos from Python, that true or not, are always entertaining to watch.

            Finally, and actually, i think we will be playing with two different characters, and Big Boss will appear and we will play as him in certain moment.

            I stated all my theories before in different forums, just to be mocked in a disrespecful way from extreme fans. But i don’t care anymore.
            And here, this is a nice place to share your ideas and theories, nobody is going to be rude with you. This is the best place to talk and chat with MGS fans, full of nice people, i can say.

            I don’t care if we will play as Big Boss, or with any other character. I like Solidus (his way of thinking about humanity, experiments, genes, etc; my gf loves him too), i like Gray Fox since the first MGS, because he is a badass and i love cyborg ninjas; and i also like Big Boss, because i think, despite all the killings he had to do, i think he is a good person; which is another reason i think the Big Boss we know from MG1 and MG2, is not that big modafuka many people wants to believe and he is another guy impersonating him.
            Still, any of the character somehow or another, could fit in the story, so we are all like confused right now, and Kojima loves to play with all of us this way.

            Aside, what would be the point in making a straight story about Big Boss and his fall down? We all already know that story. We want more stuff.
            But let’s see what happens. I’m open to anything.
            Kojima loved Birdman film, so maybe he wanted to make those long camera takes to show us how could feel Big Boss.

            But finally, i’m open to anything, whatever it comes, i will enjoy the game. And i know you all too.

            Have a nice day 🙂

          • NakedSnake85

            Well Metal Gear informer is awesome indeed.
            also another thing that i want to mention. Snake has amnesia. It was confirmed by kojima. So its strange that he seeks revenge if he doesnt remember anything. Revenge is a feeling/need that is strongly connected with memories. From what i ve seen so far Kaz forces this idea to snake. Ocelot too. So whats the deal? how snake actually is going to seek revenge if he doesnt know / remember anything at all..

  • BurntFM

    Kojima only had to mention it for the internet to deliver. LOL

      After all everybody should be able to play and enjoy the game 😉

    • kirtanloorii

      It’s okay. My mother would have let me play it if I were five years old anyways.

  • Mini gear

    • J_muse72

      Holy goodness! Hurry up already!

    • scarecrow

      DAMN! The hair looks so great!

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah the hair looks amazing, unlike the FOX engine, if I were to say anything bad about the FOX engine it would be that it doesn’t do hair and beards very well, or it does but they have not shown us yet because they are holding back because of….. Stuff, lol.

        • scarecrow

          Yeah, It’s not a big deal but it kinda annoyed me when I played for first time GZ.
          I hope that secret stuff is the reason hahaha 🙂

      • Mini gear

        I know right :p his hair is perfect here

    • RJRO

      I´m call it Now. Quiet will take showers back Mother Base, I know that Kojima will not disspoint us.

      PS: Badass Poster.

    • No Place For Hayter

      OK, that poster gives off some pretty serious vibes, CAN’T WAIT!

    • BurntFM

      wow…I never knew I needed a poster of Big Boss and quiet covered in blood, but now I KNOW I need that in my life.

    • SholidOnline

      I’ve got a far out theory… What if Big Boss and Quiet actually fall in love and have Raiden? Of course, that means Raiden would never have found out, but Raiden’s birth was probably in the 80s, and he said he had war times back then…

      Like I said though, far fetched.

      • Mini gear

        first part seems possible. but as for raiden, BB is sterile, also raidens parents were killed. but the theory is appreciated 🙂

        • SholidOnline

          Yeah, it just popped into my head, and partially because Kojima said that there may be a change or so to the story of the canon. I wouldn’t believe it myself were there someone else saying it 😛

  • disqus_jseX8ShDVf

    In about 6 days we will upload the ps3 version and ps4 raw just incase someone could work with it, the PS3 version is 11.7 Gb, but needs to be worked for cfw, PS4 is 25.1Gb and some data can be installed on the console

    More uptades later, CODEX.

    • Mini gear

      I could probley get it workin bit no materials where I’m at 🙁 wonder where you got that data ? :p thanks for the help

  • J_muse72

    Okay, I know this has nothing to do with Metal Gear but being that my two most favorite things are the Metal Gear Solid series and the Vocaloids,I want to put this here for those who are also fans, and also for those who are intrigued by Hatsune Miku.

    Like I have previously stated in the past that Hideo Kojima even featured the use of Vocaloid software in MGS PW so it’s not completely irrelivent. Anyways this is also a great song to listen to as the countdown is getting closer and closer to the release date of MGS.

    If you have any questions about Miku or the significance of the number “39”, just let me know! 😀

    • scarecrow

      You’re not alone my friend! Miku fan here and yeah I was so happy when I first heard the AI voices, I knew that it was Vocaloid.

      P.S: If im not wrong, the “39” is a wordplay for “Thank You”

      • No Place For Hayter

        Funnily enough even having heard a lot of vocaloid, I did not know that the AI’s were, lol. I only learned of that fact about a month ago, lol.

      • J_muse72

        Hello my friend and yes!
        Zero Allies is my favorite song on PW, I always listen to it on my Walkman while searching for Zadornov, glad to see there are more fans out here on MGI!

        P.S. CORRECT!! it’s a Japanses pun referring “Thank You”

  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is listed as a 25.1 GB download on PS4.

    As spotted by DualShockers, the PlayStation 3 version is significantly less hefty at 11.7 GB.

    These figures may vary slightly in the US and Europe due to
    additional localisation files. No word yet on PC or Xbox platforms,
    unfortunately.

    • J_muse72

      Hmmm,interesting, I am not sure how big MGS4 was.
      But I know that UNCHARTED 3 for the PS3 was a hefty 33 GB so IDK.
      The developers at KojiPro must have done some serious file compressing or something.

      • The more part of the size goes for graphic textures, few models (specially for stages) and audio files (and even sound files are not a big thing neither).
        GZ were 4 gigabytes. Soldiers and character models, graphic textures and a few audio files.
        GZ map could be easily done in 100-150 megabytes without texturing, just the modeling.

        For me, it’s pretty ok to have a 25 gigabytes in size for this, having in mind that the stages (textures for Afghanistan, Motherbase, Hospital and Africa) will use many same textures here and there.
        Add all the characters models, all the audio files, weapons, etc.
        Yeah, 25 gigabytes makes sense, even if we already know that you won’t see the same face repeated from soldiers.

        By the way, good luck with PSN downloading ratio, i hope there will be a preload option.

      • scarecrow

        MGS4 PSN download is listed as a 26.6 GB file size for the PS3.
        Fox Engine keeps surprising me!

        • J_muse72

          Okay thanks, I never looked it up lol

    • stagueda

      Where did you find this information? i looked on PSN and no file size appears?

      • stagueda

        Update: Found it 😉 still this is a lot of data compression for a 11GB to 25 GB but it is possible, it has been said in various occasions that the fox engine has excellent data compression capabilities. We’ll see 😉

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    This just came in guys

    • J_muse72

      Holy goodness! I want those boots!

      But my wallet won’t allow me too.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Probably cost 300-500 hundreds dollars…. TPP merchandise is being over priced and sold only to the super rich.

    • And i just “came” too. LOL.

      They look amazing!

    • Gordon Freeman

      they do look nice. But they will probably be only available in dwarf size

  • Cristian Landeros

  • oselot14

    there are few news about metal gear online
    1. you can select patern on your gear (you can not have custome one)
    2. you won’t be able to change your gear when you will be playing match
    3. there will be few gear avaible only for one class
    4. you can not unlock gear in single player
    5. we won’t find any gear from mgs 4
    6. every part of costume (gear) is selectable there won’t be any sets
    7. your uniform will not have any effect on character

    sorry for my bad english

    i’ve got these informations from Polish site about ps games and they’ve got everything from twitter account @metalgearonline

    • Ryan Locke

      Thanks 🙂 and don’t worry about your english, it isnt that bad

      • oselot14

        Thank you 🙂

  • oselot14

    other new info is about size of metal gear solid V
    ps4 version size is 25,1gb
    ps3 version size is 11,7gb

    • MrVux007

      yep FOX engine is a brilliant compression toll aswell

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      Awesome I was thinking it would be up in the 50’s or so on the ps4. I don’t understand how mortal kombat x is like 60gb and this is 25.

      • MrVux007

        poor compression and even poorer optimization…especially if you bought it on PC

    • Edward Wokhands

      Thanks for this, I keep running out of space on PS4. Time to clear up 30gb. I’m getting the digital version so I never have to use my CE. =D

      I wonder if this is any indication of the PC version? The textures are what makes the difference so huge between PS3 and 4. I imagine and the PC textures are the same as PS4 aren’t they? So I guess we should expect around 30gb for PC?

      We’re getting preload for PS4 too aren’t we?

  • ObsessedGeorge

    HUH?

    • MrVux007

      could it be a …………..A STAR!?!?!??!? http://media.giphy.com/media/kKdgdeuO2M08M/giphy.gif

    • No Place For Hayter

      Lol that’s what I thought.

    • J_muse72

      Doesn’t it mean that we surpassed the record of comments,
      Or am I just full of it XD

  • MeLand127

    Where’s Nxyus? we need a new campsite to comment! 🙁 It’s taking longer to see all of the comments..

    • Tong Ninja

      If you go back to the archives, you will see that Nxyus updated the site with new articles. 🙂
      He pinned this article at the top! 😀

      • No Place For Hayter

        Oh so that’s what the star is, lol.

      • MeLand127

        Yeayy, thanks for the info Tong 😀

  • MrVux007

    Well if it’s legit,then people can finally shut up about “Kojima Productions” not appearing on the box…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Where is kojima productions? also “finally shut up about”? you say that like it is a bad thing people are mad about their name being pulled off of the box, even if this case is legit it gets the same complaint from me, why? because Konami pulled their logo off the front of the box has hidden their name somewhere on the back of the box, and just their name not even the logo, whether it is on the back of the case or not does not change the fact that Konami are trying to hide who made the game.

      • MrVux007

        no no…i mean as in “shut up” about things that are yet to be confirmed(generaly basing everything on Kojima fiasco without solid proof)…

        ” because Konami pulled their logo off the front of the box has hidden their name somewhere on the back of the box, and just their name not even the logo, whether it is on the back of the case or not does not change the fact that they are trying to die who made the game.”

        So you already got the case,judging from that statement?They only pulled their logo and name from the official sites.everything up to release can change,and weather or not they want to Kojimas name to die,we shall find out on start of 2016 (where according to OFFICIAL info Kojimas contract expires and he is free to talk) 🙂

        tl:dr people are obliged to bitch all they want,but its also normal to use facts(solid evidence) and common sense in that constant bitching 🙂

        • No Place For Hayter

          Ah, yeah I agree people going ape shit over something that is only possible and not confirmed in anyway is pretty annoying, lol.

      • MrVux007

        here it is

        • No Place For Hayter

          Ah, thank you.

          • MrVux007

    So, back from Gamescom!
    I’m really sad that I just played it two times. It’s quite difficult when you’re with other people there.
    It was real fun. I needed a moment to get the controls and all the stuff I’m able to use in the mission (stealth, decoys and many many many other items/weapons I wish I were able to test), but then everything went quite smooth. Everything felt so perfect. No glitches or bugs while walking around on the horse, even on the more undulating parts of the area (wich was huge as you can see in the gameplay videos of this mission).
    I was afraid that it would get quite confusing with such a big area, but the iDroid feels much better to me than it does in GZ, I found everything I needed in a few seconds.
    The first time I played the demo I was just going to the mission, being spotted one time and killed the target. XD The second time was more the sneaky way and I fultoned some goats while taking DDog with me. Ordered a car from the base and cruised with my new friend around till I fultoned the target (I fooled around too much with the goats, so I couldn’t finish the mission the second time urgh).
    Ah, as I finished the mission I got an overview like it was in GZ and PW, with time, kills, rank, etc etc. But this time there was another thing to get: An anime title like it was in Snake Eater (?). I was a chick uuuh. Couldn’t figure out why because the dude who helps me during the mission talked to me then (you played with headphones and one on the supporting guys next to you on every console, very nice and comfy to concentrate on playing).

    I wish I could tell much more, but like I said, I only played two times, every time was around 15 minutes.

    At the press day they gave you after playing a Diamond Dog patch. The other days a “Big Boss is watching you!”-Button. Yesterday I stayed there till the end and they put there the whole cardboard with the rest of the buttons… now I got around 10 of these.

    Everyday at 2 pm Konami EU did a cosplayshooting, like you can see on their Twitter: twitter.com/konamieu
    But on saturday, a Facebook MGS group had a meeting and the people from Konami joined us there (the sweet Su was with them everytime https://twitter.com/ParodiSu). It was a great time there, they even took group pictures and selfies with the non cosplayer and gave a autograph from Kojima and Shinkawa to everyone. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CL46qb0WcAAiUSb.jpg

    I’m not that sure, but they’re already gameplayvideos from this gamescom mission, aren’t they? Maybe you can check this one.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Lol.

    Responding to older comments is fine, lol, I just have to look at what I said, because most times I won’t remember, lol.
