    another one..wow

    “Don’t mind me, I’m just a list of the MGI combat unit staff” – https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14v7v7IHzGy6NACyBBFKwQZshLqRhMpUfkhScVgZi35M/edit#gid=0

    • It is kinda messed up

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Meh, still does the job ¯_(ツ)_/¯

        • kirtanloorii

          What happened to it? It’s completely ruined and disorganized. I used to be in the #5 slot and now it’s 86. Was it reorganized to reflect someone’s personal favorites?

          • BurntFM

            I see someone was messing with the spreadsheet tools. It’s really messing up my OCD.

          • kirtanloorii

            lol. Me too. It was so neat before.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            O.o I’m on my phone so I can’t check the sheet but last time I checked it was just sorted by platform except a few guys who signed up after the sorting was made. Guys just see check if the contents of your lines are correct and later it will be sorted again by platform (and clan if its justified)

          • kirtanloorii

            I partly cleaned it up by making it even and green. There were lines that were randomly white and red. Let’s see how long it takes for someone to mess it up again.

          • Mini gear

            its buggin me crazy with how neat it was before and now its messed up

          • glitchbomb

            Maybe it’s just arranged better? Before the systems were all mixed. Also if I remember correctly, the kind sir who created it saved versions priodically?

    • Arestras

      Nice, I hope we’ll make a PS3 clan too

    • Jason Mounce

      Is that for Motherbase-friendship-related FOB’s (Since I hear a friend may be able to come help with an invasion if you’re gone)

      or MGO3? Or both?

      • Raven_Sorrow

        it’s for MGInformers to find other MGInformers and play MGSVTPP together and have fun together just as we have been having here over the past few years 😉

        • Jason Mounce

          I understood that much – but that doesn’t answer my question?….

          Is it for FOB – or MGO3? Or both?

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Whatever you or your friends want. Lets say you add me. You need help with defending your FOB. I help. You want to play MGO3 but i’m not yet playing MGO3 so there is another one on that list that will play MGO3 first and will be glad to join you. So the answer shloud be: it is for FOB, MGO3, and both and Trophie/Achievement competition and to trade messages on your console or whatever you want. It’s just a list o MGI members, you may add most of then or only some or just the ones who will have a play style closer to yours or the same country XD Once you are friends on your platform you do what you want 😉

          • Jason Mounce

            Mmmk! I shall seeeeee what to do…. all depends on my time and how vicious FOB attacks are. Univ + MGS5 + Video recording = Busy me. If ‘friends’ online could defend it whilst offline, that’d definitely be good. Though unsure how the system would work cause it’d be stupid if we all get spammed ‘Friend being invaded’ every time a friend gets invaded incase you have a lot of friends – and perhaps have multiple invasions happening at the same time? lol…. idunno.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            good questions! But we will only know when we get the game :/ Recording? are you streaming/uploading? if you are share the link brother 😉

          • Jason Mounce

            LP stuff – Nothin’ too fancy! None of them would be MGS related though D:

    • Robin Besch

      added myself to the list.
      hope i didnt mess it up!

    • SEF1812

      I am not in a clan but looking to join one, I’m a huge MGS fan since 1998!! look me up on PS4 SefM1A1

  • BurntFM

    “Konami/Kojima Productions.” Thanks for keeping the name Inside Playstation. You guys know what’s up

    • SchmittLenin

      Kojima making his own company and buying the Metal Gear Franchise would be so awesome…

      • gerber

        I think Kojima wants to move on and do something different, I know that with every MGS he said that this is the last one but I think this time he means it. And TPP fits perfectly to be the last MGS as it merges Big Boss and Solid Snake saga

  • Bramdeman

    I have played the game at gamescom. If you have something you would like to ask please let me know.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I’m assuming you played the same A Hero’s Way mission at Gamescom? What was your playstyle, as in your loadout, time of day, weather, approach, etc?

      • Bramdeman

        Yessir. I had to tag and kill a soviet commander. I took a pretty basic approach. D-Horse was availeble from the start so I took a ride to the mission area. Time of the Day was 18:00. Weather was normal. The area was small but there where many guards on patrol.

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          Thanks for the reply!

    • Limbless

      Coke or Pepsi?

      • Bramdeman

        Pepsi

    • Mini gear

      did you go lethal or stealth? did you notice pop in? did the amount of words on the screen (if you enterd battle) get distracting? how were the buddies? were there any glitches. how smart was the ai? how was it compared to GZ for you? thanks

      • Bramdeman

        I took the stealth approach. If pop in was present I didn’t noticed it. I fucked up by jumping out of the box lol. Combat was fast and responsive . BB didn’t stick to walls as much as in GZ. I only tried D-Horse. He felt a bit strange to control. Game was very polished. Ai was tricky. Guards became suspicious in no time. It was more responsive and faster then gz.

    • Gray Lion

      Does it play as good as it looks? Is the game, input-wise, similar to GZ? Did you see any wild life/weird stuff? Did you get to interact with Mother Base via IDroid? If so, was it overwhelming at first to use or was it simple/intuitive right from the start? Could you deploy support buddies/vehicles?
      Thank you in advance, brother! 🙂

      • Bramdeman

        Hell yes. No graphical downgrade here. 😉 Game is more responsive than GZ. Didn’t see any wildlife. Didn’t interact with mother base because of time limit.

        • Gray Lion

          Thank you! Can´t wait to get my hands on it! 😀

    • Jimbo slice

      When walking away from d horse, does he disappear or can you still see him far away?

      When smoking the phantom cigar does the clock show the day?

      Can you play dead?

      Did the night and day cycly seem to fast?

      Is there a way to heal yourself more rapidly?

      Since it was said you began with low stats on the mission demo, with how much fulton devices do you begin with and can you buy more from your idroid to request for drop off.

      How did you feel the ai?

      • Bramdeman

        I had a playthrough of 20 min so I didn’t have the time to take note of every detail. I can confirm, however, that the Ai is great.

    • gerber

      how orgasmic was it?

      • Bramdeman

        It played faster than ground zeroes. So my orgasm came earlier.

  • Fredy Carius

    Did you guys notice Sean appears in the mother base gameplay video, when Ocelot throws a bucket of water in BB?

  • FoxTamerMGO

    New gameplay footage guys, it’s actually different than the one in the topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkmFYcAWe7M

    • Gray Lion

      Thank you! 🙂

    • Daniele Andreuzzi

      You can also see Sean with a “Kojima Productions” T shirt!

      • korruption

        Hope he doesn’t get reassigned to janitorial duties for that one. XD

  • Sockerfri

    Hm.. Im starting to wonder how much of this mission will be left to do when the game is out.

    On another note: FOR EVERY SINGLE GAMEPLAY VIDEO EMERGING I WANT THE GAME SO MUCH MORE.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      XDD

    • Gray Lion

      I feel the same, brother XD

  • Mini gear

    did d horse lose a bond rank?

    • BurntFM

      Sean said that previews demos had very high level ranks so they could show you all the features. On this build they said it was the based gameplay like you will see your first time doing this mission in this part of the game. So the “social link” ;P is not that high yet

      • Mini gear

        on the results it decreses d horse rank 13:24 to 13:26 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMFPg5-NMAk

        • Yell

          Snake just ditched the horse so he could have something much more cool, and to salt the wound snake just humiliated the horse by attaching a balloon to it. That’s equally cute and heart breaking.

        • BurntFM

          Ah okay. That’s what you meant. Yeah poor D-horse lol

        • korruption

          Ah shit! Not only will I have to get them to like me, I’ll have to maintain it?! This will not be easy. =(

  • No Place For Hayter

    Don’t even need to watch gameplay videos anymore, I’m dying to actually play the game here, lol.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      Haha, I keep on seeing “A Hero’s Way” played a million different ways and I can’t get enough! This game is a thing of pure beauty!

    • Solid PhoeniX

      Same here, I kinda heard enough and want to find things out myself now. . . At the same time I still want to see more coz I dont want to wait till Sep 1st

  • Yell

    Sean and Jackie are heroes, I can’t wait to recruit them in game and make them my best diamond doggies.

  • J_muse72

    Hey I got an idea…let me play A Hero’s Way!!! PLEASE…just a demo…*slips into a coma*

    • korruption

      *wakes you up* HEEEEYYY!!! It’s been 9 years-… woops, I meant 9 hours. So uh… this waiting thing… bit of a toughie ain’t ‘er? =D

  • Jimbo slice

    Hey 1 question. If anyone could answer this but, are we going to need to have an online connection to upgrade our fob’s? Or could we simply do that offline.

    • PACOVELI

      Upgrading fob/motherbase is something you do can also do during your off-line gameplay (missions/side-missions)

      • Jimbo slice

        Thanks for the reply greatly appreciated!

        • korruption

          That would be kind of irritating to have someone running around your base and stealing the mess hall’s cookies while you’re trying to construct it.

        • PACOVELI

          No problem
          Dont 4get 2 add if you have ps4 my account pacoveli88 al we can greatly appreciate eachother on the battlefield

  • PACOVELI

    DWolf, I mean Ddog all the way.
    Quit needs to shut up
    Dwalker can walk all he wants on motherbase/fob
    Dhorse can play with the sheep and goats

    • ddmaster

      Thats cute.

      • PACOVELI

        CQC is cute :p

    • korruption

      Hmmm…. HMMMMMM!!! Dammit I can’t decide! Both of them are too intriguing!!! =(
      Soon as I get this game, I’m immediately sending a few scrubs to R&D to work on cardboard box eyepatches!

  • Jimbo slice

    Hey 1 question. If anyone could answer this but, are we going to need to have an online connection to upgrade our fob’s? Or could we simply do that offline.

  • PACOVELI

    My guess is we can build and upgrade out motherbase during offline solo (side)missions by finding matherials and raw diamonds and fulton and recruite enemien soldiers for R&D

  • Solidus Türk

    Meh! Hate this Mission-.-*

    • PACOVELI

      Nurion abe

  • Jimbo slice

    I was dreaming I had the game in my hands, but then I woke up. I feel the phantom pain.

  • PACOVELI

    So Solid Crew

    • I’ve had that as a screen saver for nearly two years now

      • PACOVELI

        You’re a hero in the eyes of thise who live on the battlefield

  • Jimbo slice

    I don’t know if you guys get it. But this image exactly represents how I feel about waiting for Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain #V and what i’m willing to do, to play it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/67a0a2c6e11ada2242704fe06c1ee7a326d1de503fe9bb07fe021a5181a3f5ba.jpg

    • Raven_Sorrow

      I have not seen this episode but i really hope you are willing to wait in the snow to play it O.O

      • stocchinet .

        He froze himself to wake up after wiiu launch, but he overshoot and wake up un in a post apocaliptic future

        • Kol Leqejza

          wii.

    • kirtanloorii

      Every time I think about waiting for this game, I remember that episode.

    • Autumn22

      At first I was like is he feeling frozen?… Then I’m like oh…

  • Solid O. #V
    • akumetsu

      big Notice thanks!!!!!!!

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      i cant see anything ?whats this?

      • gerber

        Kojima tweeting: MGSV TPP will be launch on 9/1 worldwide(9/2 JPN)(PS4/One/PS3/360/PC).There’ll be comparison screenshots on each platform unveiled tomorrow.

        YAY!

    • korruption

      Uh-oh! The truck have started to move!

    • Shporet

      I was hopiing to get PS4 for this…but no money…I hope it plays good on PS3…at least I have a week less to wait (jailbroken ps3 games usually come earlier…no money for originals either) 🙁

      • gerber

        Same here, I will get it for ps3 but I see a bright side – one day I will have a good excuse to replay the whole game on ps4 or pc!

        • Shporet

          PS3 screenshots look fine…it won’t be that bad I guess…

      • Kol Leqejza

        dude, what the fuck?!

      • Solid O. #V

        I’m getting for PS3 too, Day One Edition.

  • Bigger Boss

    I remember playing Metal Gear on my Nintendo when I was 8. First thing I read was “This is Big Boss…” And being so intrigued. I played the game a lot. Later, I’ve learned it wasn’t a Kojima game, but nonetheless it made and impact on me. When I bought Metal Gear Solid with my summer job money as a teen, all those memories of days and nights playing metal gear on my Nintendo as a child, came flooding back. And learning the terrorists wanted the remains of Big Boss, in the beginning of the game, my jaw dropped. I’ve been a HUGE fan since. Then, actually playing as Naked snake in Snake Eater, and making the connection, “it’s Big Boss” as a good guy…further blew my mind. All the games in between also, love the story. Now, to finally see Big Boss’s story fully unfold and see the tragedy that ensues..the Joy, the Sorrow…I love Metal Gear. Anyone else?

    • PACOVELI

      Nah, we all hate metal gear
      Just like big boss we love buwbs
      We eat metal gears for brealfast

    • PACOVELI

      Cheers to that brovah

      • J_muse72

        G-Mod FTW!

        • PACOVELI

          Huh? What was that noice?

  • PACOVELI

    Before I grow old

  • Bigbossjack

    The use of the cloaking device doesnt allow you to get a rank in a mission. A nice way to balance the gameplay

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, any “Special” items will do that to your rank.

    • Ryan Locke

      I LOVE that setup, because it encourages me to play it for real the first time, and to be careful to get that s rank. Then I can go back and use the special equipment and have an easier time doing the optional objectives.

      • No Place For Hayter

        That is our reward after all, infinite ammo and stealth camo all the best missions 🙂 after all we probably have to S-rank the hardest ones to get them in the first place, lol.

        I just with there was a Special item like the magnetic field from MGS2, now that would be AWESOME, it would be like the stealth camo of the combat side of the game nothing can touch me 🙂

        • Haan

          Infinite ammo eh?

          • Ryan Locke

            LOVE that scene. lol At first I was like, “Oh, yeah that’s right. That makes sense.” Then after a moment I was like “wait a minute!”

  • Rheulan

    Gentleman, completely off-topic, but if you want to vent some of your frustration/anger at Konami, a good place to do it is in the new Silent Hill Pachinko trailer at youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ht4dbyPIcM&feature=youtu.be). It has been downvoted +9.5k times and some of the comments are hilarious!

    • kuaikukia

      lol, this is the first time I see on comment youtube asking “who the fuck people like this video?”

    • No Place For Hayter

      Cancelled Silent Hills to give you PACHINKO SILENT HILL YAAAAAA!

    • kirtanloorii

      A pachinko machine is a literal microtransactions box… Just sayin’.

    • No Place For Hayter

      What a shot at Konami that is wow, that is a bad sign for a future in the gaming industry, wow, lol. Funniest thing I have seen in a while, lol.

    • Schmojima

      What the actual fuck is this shit?!
      I can barely watch through the video without getting an epileptic seizure or two ö_Ö

      You know, I never quite finished the games because I would shit my pants like after 5 minutes of playing (though I really like SH), but this is just too much. No successful franchise deserves the pachinko treatment.

    • stocchinet .

      Mgs 6 the gambling pain

    • Eddie

      The nerve!

  • No Place For Hayter

    I guess we have a good amount of social lurkers here, lol. I was looking at our list of accounts for each platform and I noticed a decent amount of people whom don’t have an MGI informer account but put their information on the list 🙂

    I gotta say that is pretty awesome, lol, we are glad to have all of you whom don’t have MGI accounts 🙂
    And I honestly did not even consider that, lol.

    • kirtanloorii

      I was a lurker for nearly 2 years before I signed on last march.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Glad you did, wouldn’t be the same 🙂

        I think I lurked for around 1 year before I couldn’t contain myself and started commenting, funny thing though I never planned on making more than a few comments, guess the people here just pulled my thoughts in, lol.

        Place is the best, I still lurk everywhere else on the internet, only place I comment/have an account is here, lol.

        • kirtanloorii

          This is definitely the nicest community on the internet (that I am aware of). No trolls or arguments. Just a whole bunch of friendly hype.

    • H’m

      how do i make a MGI account..?

      • kirtanloorii

        You already have one. The account you used to comment just now is your MGI account.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Heh, guess I said that didn’t I. I just meant a persons MGI nickname, aka their Disqus profile name, I automatically apply that to MGI, lol. The list mentions MGI nickname, and my brain filtered that as MGI profile name, lol.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    In case anyone was interested. Here was an update I received on the status of Golden Joystick’s Metal Gear book.

  • Michael Blackburn

    Gameplay looks great. I popped my PS2 cherry with Sons of Liberty when I was 18. I thought it was the weirdest coolest game I’ve ever played. Now we’re going open world?! Metal Gear and the brilliance of Kojima is a gift that keeps on giving. I can’t wait to build my army. Hell, I can’t wait to build my army’s emblem! There is just so much to do I’ll be kosher during Winter. “SNAAAAKKKEEE!!!!”
