Blood on Snake doesn’t reset between missions

As we know Snake will get covered in blood as he sustains injuries in the game. Kojima has shared some small new details on the way the blood differs in this game from how it’s generally used in games (translation once again by JunkerHQ).

MGSV-The-Phantom-Pain-Snake-Blood Transfusion

Blood on Snake doesn’t reset after missions or side ops. It differs from how blood is conventionally used in games. Gradually Snake’s entire body will get bloody from combat. Also, the IV is for recovering from serious injuries.

If you want to wash away the blood you’ll have to stand in the rain or take a shower at Mother Base.

    Nice nyx don’t you get tired?

    • gerber

      Nanomachines, son

      • Punished “Venom” Snake

        who’s that?

        • WrongDirectionZ

          That MG Rising antagonist. Totaly forgett his name… something with a…. Armstrong i belive

          • Punished “Venom” Snake

            Ok thanks, I wonder if Kojima really considers this game as a real MG game because in GZ he clearly didn’t.

          • gerber

            I love Rising as an alternative universe kind of thing, but it just doesn’t fit in canon IMO

    • kirtanloorii

      Speaking of which, I have not seen nyx comment in a long time.

      • Gatsu

        He does sometimes and also dropped few comments in the previous article. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Nyxus is just a little busy until the end of August. But he still sacrifice his time for us Diamond Doggys and give new info to us… Nyx is a true patriot /(T__T)7 .

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        Gray fox is nycus!

  • Tong Ninja

    It’s cool that Kojima is still giving us new bits and pieces of information and more helicopter pictures until TPP is released! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Chris Estevez

    I expected this to be honest. It wouldn’t make sense if the blood would wash away after missions the way they described it. They said that being bloody can make you more detectable, so I expected it to stay until manually washed away or rain.

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    Amazing, another great Kojima idea. I wonder if he’ll talk more about the inspiration behind this feature.

  • J_muse72

    Kojima understands that the wait is killing us all, leave it to Kojima to increase moral more efficiantly than Big Boss. I can’t wait to recruit him in TPP!

  • H’m

    theymoved up the pc version two weeks, how about moving up the console version the same cmoooooooooooooooooooooon please !!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Gatsu

      Oh god , make it happen! XD

    • VenomSnake123

      What do you mean? It releases worldwide on all systems on september 1 right?

      • Nick Wheaton

        What they mean is that they want the console versions to come two weeks earlier, like how the PC release was changed to September 1st instead of two weeks later.

        • VenomSnake123

          Yeah, I know. It took me a while to understand that. haha ๐Ÿ™‚

    • VenomSnake123

      Oh i get it. Never mind! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOT ANOTHER DELAY FOR PC NO

    • Chris Estevez

      I though we were all friends… ๐Ÿ™

  • H’m

    an like i said last night referring to the blood, this is why im a lil miffed the survival mechanics wernt brought forward from snake eater

    • Robin Besch

      same here. would fit in very nicely with the whole open world thing. and of course along with a proper health bar.

  • kirtanloorii

    24 days remaining. Felt like just yesterday it was at 35.

    • Fritillary

      I’m happy someone is feeling like it’s zipping by. I’m pulling my hair out over here.

      • kirtanloorii

        lol. The trick is to stay busy. I have to play my games very slowly to stretch them out.

        • H’m

          thats why im gonna get the zombiU … ps4 version coming out mid august to fill in a few weeks

        • Gatsu

          This is the best way to make time go fast and work keeps me busy too :). Just 2 more weeks then vacation…
          Oh yeah waiting so much for it to begin, because then it’s almost time for the best game in universe.

      • Gatsu

        Don’t worry ;), you’ll survive comrade.
        Btw, welcome to our Mother Base aka MGI :D!

    • Mauricio Acosta

      After August 1st hit it has been a crawl for me! Well, going to Tampa this week so It might go

    • Solid PhoeniX

      Lets not Jynx it dude, . . But gotta say I feel the same. I just go day by day for now. These gameplay vids are helping the wait a bit

  • Cartmangus

    This is a detail I’m loving, doesn’t just seem like it’s blood, but dirt as well will cover his face and body. Good way to depict the violence and hardships involved when doing these things, I mean dude looking pretty rough after this mission http://i.imgur.com/lzDJN5x.jpg

    • Gotta watch out for Ocelot

    • Isaiah

      I liked it. It reminds me of Braveheart for some reason. Hopefully there’s customizable face paint!

    • snake, you stink !

    • Sockerfri

      Its insane how much attention to detail has been put into this game. I cant even imagine what the development team has gone through to deliver on this title. Looking forward to play it, and test out every (hopefully) feature in game.

  • Gatsu

    That pic looks so badass! I love all these details and glad the blood stays on Big Boss :D.

    Although I love to play stealthy, I will definitely go rambo and get soaked in bloody mess… Will probably happen eventually at some point anyway. Just wanna see what happens and look like a red demon + no showering ftw!

    • No Place For Hayter

      I will stay clean, but I will also GET AS MUCH BLOOD ON MYSELF AS POSSIBLE! lol.

      • ddmaster

        I wonder what Kojima-san meant when he said we could shower “too much”?

        Enemy soldier: “Whats that smell? Is that…Axe?”

    • junir

      Now Snake regrets going down on that girl during the particular time of the month.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Wow. -_____________________________________________________________-

        It seems that heavy flow makes him horny.

    • Shalashaska

      Same here. Im going to go CRAZY and get all bloody and then play the game! Haha IM sure Kojima has put a type of guard that you can scare if youre all blood-ed out. Hahaha IM SURE!

      • Kol Leqejza

        good thinking! just like the big boss corpse camo & solidus’ face in MGS 4 worked.

        • Shalashaska

          There was a stink camo in mgs3. We already got confirmation that there is a stink camo in this game too! haha

          • ddmaster

            Sweeeet! I know what I’m gonna be wearing.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Sorry for being an asshole but is vittupaa a swear word in Finnish?coz many people are saying this word can be heard in song by Martin garrix and tiesto ?

      • FMercenary

        I think “vittupรครค” translates to “fuckhead”.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I think it’s fuckin vagina or

  • Chem

    so it is confirmed that he can’t wash the blood of his hands? Bad joke sorry

    • Vegas

      Oh boy that was horrible xD

  • Lewis

    An IV bag that is part of gameplay? Fuck you, Kojima, I won’t be able to play other games soon, have mercy!

    • Edward Wokhands

      MGS 1, 2, 3 and 4 STILL ruin other games for me, even modern games. (Think about it, a PS2 game is still better than pretty much the majority of all games released since) It takes a while to readjust. Other games just seem bland in comparison. Even the relatively short Ground Zeroes makes other games unplayable for a while. It just shows that technology and graphics aren’t that important, it’s the creative vision behind it.

  • Gatsu
    • I bet he he invaded it

      I really love Ken. He’s such a nice guy, really down to Earth and patient with his fans.

        Thank you for this

      • glitchbomb

        I’ve seen you use this same pic a couple times….
        Makes me chuckle every time.

        • Edward Wokhands

          He’s so happy! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Fredy Carius

    Too bad Ocelot will wash us from time to time, cause it would be awesome to start the game as a clean character and end it all covered in blood

    • JohnnyAB

      Maybe he’ll only do it if you STINK but not covered in blood?
      I think the stink will happen if you hide in those trashbins etc..

      • Edward Wokhands

        Do you guys think that the enemy soldiers will react at all to his smell? I’m praying that there are some hilarious stink based Easter eggs. Knowing Kojima we won’t be disappointed.

        • JohnnyAB

          Who knows?! You’d have to think so though, there’s trash there’s shit..

          • Edward Wokhands

            Lol! Good point.

  • BurntFM

    I’m a neat freak. In Witcher 3 I constantly go out of my way to find a barber and get a clean shave. I don’t know if I can handle going a few missions without showering.

    • Lewis

      I think it won’t be a problem for you, as showering takes about 2-3 seconds, and you really have other motivation to visit Mother-Base regularly. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lewis

    I’ve seen this in my Legacy Collection artbook, if I remember correctly it is a poster for MGO2.

    • H’m

      or a MGI group photo lol…

      • Lewis

        Imagine, if in MGO there will be clans, and we had our own, and could make group photos like this! Man, that would be great.

        • H’m

          YESSS!

      • glitchbomb

        Oh god. What a ragtag bunch that would be. Haha

    • Kol Leqejza

      and the cover for MGO2, which was sold seperately in japan.

  • Shiragama
    • kirtanloorii

      Ahh. Good info. Thanks.

    • muaddib

      oh, too bad

    • Lewis

      It’s okay with me. Hard to maintain immersion, when a guy with 4 guns and lots of gadgets and a bionic arm goes swimming.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a water section in any game. Even MGS2. (Is there a swimming section in 3?)

        • Lewis

          Yeah, that Emma section was soooo frustrating. And I think there was no swimming section in MGS3, though I think you could swim in some rivers.

      • Kol Leqejza

        that’s bull. remember snake’s backpack in MGS 3? by that logic…

        • Lewis

          Well, that was one thing that broke immersion. Good thing they fixed it a bit.

          • Kol Leqejza

            thx, to peace walker. my problem with the “BB can’t swim-thing” is that we’re only restricted to surface & aerial infiltration. i heard the reason is that BB has only one arm left. the other being a bionic prosthetic, that can shoot rocket, charge electricity, catch object from behind and can even break knifes, but sure… he can’t swim with it. -.- hell, he could use the hand to propell faster underwater, but no… instead we restrict the player. even in GTA you could swim, even if it was unnecassary for the most part. even MGS 4 had the freedom to do so. that’s why i’m disapoointed.

          • Lewis

            MGSV doesn’t need swimming. That’s all.

          • Kol Leqejza

            yeah, you seem like someone who don’t look at things objectively. even ur beloved franchise deserves some critique.

          • Lewis

            Man, you can’t jump non-conextually in any of these games. So what? If MGSV has no swimming, that’s okay with me. I’m not playing a sports simulator.

          • Kol Leqejza

            yeah, that’s right ur playing a stealth-simulator.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      Silly Snake

  • kirtanloorii

    MB coins, lol. A testing ground for the future of Konami… https://twitter.com/metalgear_en/status/629716849739980800

    • JohnnyAB

      So only speed up? Cool

      • MichaelPayneV

        No, not cool at all! Pay walls is the last thing I want in Metal Gear!

        • JohnnyAB

          As long as you can’t buy ingame currency; “GMP” it’s not that bad imo

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, is as bad!

          • Shalashaska

            Lol.. Im sure you can buy in game currency. Konami, im sure took its last oppurtunity to milk the game, no doubt about that.

            As for this.. yea.. its bad none the less.. pays walls or things like this just shouldnt exist .. unless these mother base coins can be earned in game without paying.

            Oh wait..
            ITS STILL A BAD PRACTICE EVEN IF IT CAN.

            whatever happened to the games that once paid were ALL THERE on the disc.

      • Reaper

        No, it looks like the only way to purchase new territorial waters to expand FOB is by buying mother base coins..they need to come clean and let’s us know the full detail of how microtransactions are going to work…someone please ask ken on Twitter for the details plz

        • Gatsu

          I could tweet Ken, but I’m too tired/lazy at the moment :). Maybe tomorrow if no new info appear.

        • JohnnyAB

          Fairly certain this is false. Sean already addressed the microtransaction issue and said everything can be played/unlocked without paying a single cent. Granted he didn’t mention FOB or online in particular, but it’s safe to assume that is what he meant. If not then.. well then..

    • H’m

      sounds like one of those shitty bullcrap freemium titles, iv never liked that real time waiting crap but i can accept it as long as in mgs5 the time limits arnt long ( given we will be on mission anyway ) but these so called MB coins shouldnt even exist in the first place and if will yell loud enough we might be heard if konami does infact screw us all over

    • mb coins can be obtained by playing the game or is it something to buy with real money ?

      • kirtanloorii

        I honestly don’t know. But I don’t think Konami will answer if I ask.

      • kuaikukia

        Judging by the tweet it seems MB coins only obtain by purchasing real money.

    • Isaiah

      So you’re telling me that there’s going to be some rich guy out there who is going to be way better prepared on day 1 than my hard-earned FOB? Noooooooooo! D:

      • Dirty Bird

        That’s what will happen. Maybe there’s a way to hide or disable your F.O.B.s from being attacked by other players or pay-to-winners. We can only hope.

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    Unrelated, but a PSA: Metal Gear devs confirmed that PS+ and Xbox Live Gold will be required for both MGO and Forward Operating Bases. https://twitter.com/metalgear_en/status/629720166054518784

    • ddmaster

      Yeah I had planned to start my ps+ in september so I’ll be ready for Oct 6th.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Hopefully you’ll be ready for FOBs too if you want to do those.

    • BurntFM

      YAY! PS3 doesn’t need PS+

      • MichaelPayneV

        Neither does PC!

        • BurntFM

          I’m glad I’m playing the game on PS3/PC

      • Edward Wokhands

        I went back to the PS3 version of Rayman Legends not long ago and it felt really strange to have free online features. Things are messed up. No wonder people are slowly migrating to PC.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I HATE, how PS+ has turned into XBOX Live Gold, god I hate sony, luckily I do have PS+.

      • MichaelPayneV

        And luckily I have Steam, WHICH IS FREE!

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        PC player, I sympathize with you all for having to pay for multiplayer. It’s disgusting really. I don’t care that you all get free games, I still don’t think it’s right to charge for online. Sony up until the PS3 and Nintendo have the right idea.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Actually, we also got selected games on Steam, and Steam is also free.

          I just wish more people would say “Fukk the system” and move to PC!

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            This, too. I think of the sales as a trade off because free games being given away is rarer on Steam

          • Edward Wokhands

            If everyone did that I wouldn’t be surprised if Steam got together with developers to create some sort of multiplayer pay wall. Then again hacks would instantly appear everywhere.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Damn. That’s a shame, I’m getting PC soon anyway but I’ll be playing PS4 for the first few weeks. I loved PS+ on PS3. It just isn’t worth getting for PS4 yet, there aren’t enough games. The free games were why I had it but they’ve become terrible since PS4 released.

      Looks like I’ll be permanently on the PC version then once I finish single player. (In 2 years ยฌ_ยฌ) I just hope it has Dual Shock 4 support.

      Awesome :).

    • No Place For Hayter

      That is great ROFL. Love Kiefers look, lol.

      • ddmaster

        Do you have a psn account? I’m gathering high stats for MB to prepare for BB’s arrival…its taking a while the skill pool here at MGI is deep.

        • Chriss Kama

          Sign up y’all, SIGN UP!!!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yup ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Funny thing though, I originally created my PSN account way back when I was barely a “minor” and so I was stuck with a sub-account for years and years, but only recently (about a few months ago) Sony created a way for my sub-account to be made into a main account.

    • Robin Besch

      that moment was so frikkin bad ass
      shame that 24 will continue without him…

      • Tong Ninja

        David Hayter should replace Jack Bauer as lead character in upcoming 24! XD

        Hahaha

        • Robin Besch

          hahah best idea ever. then we’ll have kiefer twittering every day that he wont be in the season at all.

      • Chriss Kama

        Really?? They are getting someone else to replace him???

    • Preston M Simpson

      Who is the guy shooting at him? He kind of looks like Hayter, but I would find it hard to believe its really him.

      • AeroGre

        Yea if you look closely you can tell that someone shopped hayter’s face on to the guy shooting at kiefer but its not actually hayter in the show lol

        • Preston M Simpson

          Yeah, I think I would remember that credit on IMDB. Hayter’s acting credits are easy to keep up with because there are so few, and even fewer that are on-camera. So that really is supposed to be Hayter’s face? I never saw this episode of 24.

        Awesome man! Lucky. Wish I could score one of those posters. Hell…I would be happy to get that mug!

        • jack_coban

          Thanks, bro ๐Ÿ™‚ But you don’t know the half of it. When I was standing in line my cousin recognised a friend, who was a member of the konami-staff – as a result we didn’t have to wait for 2 hours ๐Ÿ˜€ AND he let us play twice in a row (like 30 minutes straight). It was just so awesome. The game, the staff, the cosplay, just wow!

        • Chriss Kama

          Screw the mug, I want the bike…..even if I don’t know how to actually ride one.

          • glitchbomb

            Or both. Dippin a cup a Joe while zooming down the highway! Zoom zoom zoom!

      • ddmaster

        I would have my morning coffee all day everyday with that mug.

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Skullface! You actually met him? Give him a blast arm punch for me too buddy.

        • jack_coban

          I tried, but he was so charming. Just… Skully…

          …but rumor has it that he wasn’t actually there…

        Amazing

  • Gatsu

    So I did my best (I think, lol?) to form MGI Steam group ;). I was just wondering if I should leave it as public so anyone can join or so that only by inviting? Sorry for silly question, I haven’t formed much Steam groups in the past, ’cause I’m a rookie ๐Ÿ™ .

    If it fails…we might lose our chance for revenge, and then someone else have to do a new better one….
    >_<
    Here's the link http://steamcommunity.com/groups/metalgearinformers

    There's plenty of other really great MGS groups in Steam already, but some have been asking for a specific one for MGI members.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Only invite. Look me up as @MichaelPayneV

      • Gatsu

        Okey

        • Silverius

          Hey Gatsu I’d like to join the group too, can i? @Zpam i have an outer heaven emblem for profile pic.

          • Gatsu

            Sure :). Was thinking maybe better this way (inviting) so we can have just MGI members in there ;).

          • Silverius

            Thanks, absolutely.

          • Gatsu

            Np brother ๐Ÿ˜‰ !

      • John Dixon

        I’m aqwsz126 so hype to ko everyone and suck em into a portal in the sky

    • MichaelPayneV

      I can’t accept it today, I’m at work, so tomorrow!

    • Vegas

      Hey Gatsu, may I create a party with all MGI PS4 users? There is no group system like Steam but a party should do. Whaddya think?

      • Gatsu

        Of course :), I almost forgot about PS4. I think a party should work well!
        I leave it to you Vegas, but if I can help somehow let me know :D. Off to bed now though, good night –> zzzZZ

        • Vegas

          Actually you can xD i have no real way to spread the group besides going from post to post leaving comments, that is if I get there fast enough. So I think we should post the name of the manager of each group (Xbox One, PS4…) so people may contact them and say “hey i wanna join!”. Can I make this change on the document? And since you are like a rockstar around here it will be easier if you spread the world throughout the other managers… if thats not too much of course, i may sometimes get a little hyped with this stuff :B

        • Vegas

          I forgot to mention that the names would be placed in the first 5 (for each console) lines of the Google Document and we would gently ask that folks only post their names below.

      • glitchbomb

        He’ll yeah!

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I have an account there too but I don’t think I can manage both. If you can and Gatsu agrees, you may be the one to do it. Unless someone already did it.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            I won’t be able to coz I may ruin it and write som nasty things and even things about me and i don’t want to break so wines trust

      Yeah wtf, I kind of want to die from some disease or something, be walking famine, lol.

      • Edward Wokhands

        LOL! Actually, I BET that enemy soldiers will be able to smell you too! I seriously hope that’s an Easter egg now; chasing enemy soldiers around the battlefield with stench alone.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Huh? what was that smell?

          Ewww gross!

  • LegendarySnake51

    I can’t wait for TPP! Gatsu your group looks awesome. Nyxus have you Steam to join our groups and add me as friends. You can add me on psn same ID

  • Golgari

    I’m so sad… 20+ days left for the release and soon I will never see new screenshots for a Metal Gear from a Hideo Kojima.
    His last game in the franchise.

    I hope he will make another stealth game in the genre but under a different name with the amazing gameplay, characters, story and graphics that we all love.

    • MichaelPayneV

      There can only be 1 Boss (MGSV) and 1 Snake (MGS6)…No, the world would be better off, without, SNAKES!

      • But the world needs Hideo Kojima

    • Gatsu

      Yes I will miss him ;O… Hopefully he keeps tweeting much, so we know how he is doing in the future.
      His last masterpiece indeed… The feeling are both sad and super excited, a mix of emotions.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I’ve been wondering whether it would be possible for him to just make a game with The Boss. Just use her real name or an old code name, change her design a little to a younger version and Konami can well and truly fuck themselves. They’d have zero legal recourse. It was Kojima’s (and his team) idea anyway. There’s nothing they could do at all. Kojima could make it into a new series that leads up to MGS3 or a one off game. Imagine playing as The Fucking Boss during WORLD WAR 2!!!

      During WW1 (and probably 2) soldiers used to go on solo snake-esque sneaking missions, sneak across battlefields, kidnap soldiers, take them BACK across the battlefield all alone and get info out of them!!! (It’s the closest to Snake I’ve read about in real life, usually there are small teams) Very similar to PW and TPP where you fulton soldiers and get them on your side. But it’s the absolute perfect setting since they had to do everything with actual man power. (The situation I read about was one where a soldier snuck into a German soldier’s room to capture him, the German soldier looked frightened and offered the (I think English) soldier some food. Because of the generous gesture the kidnapping soldier couldn’t do it so he went back empty handed. The German soldier humanized himself. The other soldier got in a lot of trouble after sneaking all the way back. There could be lots of really human situations like that since it’s set in the past, plus there was a lot of new technology emerging then too. Combine that with shadowy conspiracies and you have another MGS series under a new name.)

      Imagine sneaking across an old battlefield as the young Boss gathering info. She’s honestly the best female character in any game in my opinion. (A big deal isn’t made out of her gender, she’s just another awesome soldier, I can’t stand this “I’M FEMALE AND YOU’RE A MUSCLY DUDE WHO IS SCARED!!! YEAH!!!” shit. She seemed genuinely wise and skilled.) I’d love to play as her. Hopefully Kojima has the same idea.

    • Jillsandwich98

      I’m sure we will be seeing more games from the man in the future, kind of exciting to see what he can do after finished with metal gear. Btw have you guys played Zone of the Enders? I haven’t played it myself yet but was wondering if it’s any good.

      • glitchbomb

        Personally i still wanna play Snatcher.

  • Gatsu

    24 days left my dear brothers ;D !

    • No Place For Hayter

      I can tell by the look on Kiefers face that, that cigarette is a bad substitute for the phantom cigar, lol.

      • kirtanloorii

        Either that, or he needs glasses to read that floating watch. lol

        • Gatsu

          LOL nice comments both of you. XD

      • glitchbomb

        Hahaha! Ah..made me choke on my pizza.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Is 24 any good? I need something to watch or play for 23 days.

      • Gatsu

        24 is amazing :D! I love it and should watch it again.

        Really addicting and hard to stop watchin, when the episodes are done so well :). Also…it got Kiefer!!!

        • Lewis

          I was going to watch it, but couldn’t find it anywhere without dub and with subs. Do you have a link, where I can get it?

        • Edward Wokhands

          My favorite show of all time is (by FAR) The Sopranos. I love binge watching shows when I have time. I’ll definitely check it out. I still haven’t watched House Of Cards which I’ve been meaning to watch for like a year now.

          I just want to see the 24 episode that the hilarious gif comes from with the bullet proof glass that keeps getting posted on here.

          • ddmaster

            Just finished the third season of HoC…season 4 can’t come fast enough. It seems Netflix is where all of the good stuff is at. Also we’re <2 months away from Walking Dead season 6.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I might actually wait for HoC to finish completely then and watch them all in a row. I first watched Breaking Bad after season 4 had finished. That wait for season 5 and then the evil year long wait for the 2nd half! -_- Oh gosh. All I did at least once a day was theorize on what might happen. (The wait wasn’t as bad as the way for MGS5 though. ยฌ_ยฌ)

            It feels weird having to wait for a week between episodes of anything now since everything I’ve watched has been long finished.

            I tried to watch The Walking Dead a while ago but something went wrong with it. The last episode of season 1 was kind of weird, it didn’t seem to fit in and then season 2 started dragging. I might give it another go though because season 1 was great until that last one. You think season 2 is worth sitting through? (I’ve spoken to a few people who got bored with 2 but if it gets better I’ll happily sit through) All I remember is that they were looking for a missing child I think? And it was going on and on and on.

            The game was so great though that I want to go back and try again.

      • Robin Besch

        24 was a great ride for me, especially the first seasons.
        while watching it everytime he choked out someone i thought “impressive CQC boss!”

    • ddmaster

      And with each passing day I grow more insane……….crap. I’ll probably end up becoming like one of those MSF survivors who are crazy and can be saved in the wilderness. Lol

    dangit! what the hack konami! dang, they did put things you can only pay for! territories for better FOB income!

  • RoderickThe13

    I don’t know if you guys already know this, but looks like samples of the soundtrack leaked since Konami’s been deleting them from Youtube (Yong had uploaded them). Here’s another link to the video (Quiet’s theme is so sad) http://a.pomf.cat/ocxdmy.mp4

    • Gatsu

      Incredible samples…that was so beautiful ;O. I love Quiet’s Theme and when it plays in the game, manly tears will fly.

      • kirtanloorii

        Oh yeah! It’s really cool to hear her voice. I hope she has some lines in TPP. Even if it is only a cassette.

    • Mini gear

      im dying now with manly tears. o my god this music is beautiful _____;-;_____

      • No Place For Hayter

        The music is the only good thing to come out of PO ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Tong Ninja

          Haven’t played PO, but “Calling to the Night” is a very underrated song! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • No Place For Hayter

      Wow, so much emotion and I haven’t even played TPP yet, lol.

      The lyrics for Quiets theme greatly remind of the lyrics for Snake Eater/Heavens Divide.

      Also The Best is Yet to Come in English o.0 and love theme 0.o

    • BurntFM

      I love Quiet’s Theme. It’s so melancholic and sad. I love how Stefanie Joosten not being known for her singing brings a sort of raw emotion to the song which makes it a lot more personal for the character. You can tell she’s not a professional singer by how her voice cracks in a few parts, but that’s what I love about it. It’s like Quiet is singing that to somebody. My guess is Big Boss. Like others said. Tears will be shed. ( หƒฬฃฬฃฬฅฯ‰ห‚ฬฃฬฃฬฅ )

      • Andy37649

        What if she is in love with him but still we’ll have to kill her at a certain point? And then this song plays. Shit, i’m gonna cry so bad if that happens.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Or maybe she will infect Big Boss with Sans Lingual Franca, by not being Quiet anymore, by singing this song, being forced by Skull Face’s Skull to sing it! My heart will break!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Sans
            Linguq Franca what mind of fucking bio weapon name is that

          • solideater

            Dont Know about Sans Lingua Franca but Lingua Franca Means..common language, trade language

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Sans means without in French and linguq Franca is a languages to bridge all languages

        • Mini gear

          id drown in tears if that happend

          • Andy37649

            Same here bro ;'(

      • Will

        For a non professional singer she’s pretty good. I like her voice.

    • Cipher

      Quiet’s Theme !
      goosebumps

  • Hells yeah that’s from MGO2, 3 can’t come any sooner damn it.

  • Shalashaska

    Lol now where are all the idiots who were okay with micro transactions like these when they first announced.. I was telling people that this is going to be disgusting. This is exactly what it is. Disgusting.
    I cant believe people are actually brainwashed into such crap.. especially when they crap needs to be paid for but their own damn wallets.

    PAY WALLS AND MICRO TRANSACTIONS OF ANY KIND SHOULD NOT EXIST IS A TRIPPLE AAA GAME THAT COSTS PULL PRICE OF 60$ WITHOUT THE DAMN DLC AND OTHER EXTRAS.

    Like as if the shady practice of DLC wasnt bad enough already.

    • glitchbomb

      Are we 100% sure MB coins are from real life currency and not something you get like gmp?

      • Sockerfri

        One can never be a 100% sure until its been tested out first hand. However, that is the general assumption of the term “micro transactions”. I doubt theyยดll find their own version of the term.

      • Shalashaska

        Hmm.. possibility is there ofcourse but come on.. lets be honest.. shady dlc and MT practices JUST SHOULDNT exist.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I agree, I was genuinely shocked when I saw people defending it. How the HELL can people defend these kinds of things? They say “if you don’t like it don’t use it” which is true but it’s the morality behind it. It just creates an unbalanced experience. As a group, gamers are treated like absolute idiots. Kojima is one of the last developers who treats us like intelligent adults, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is what caused him to leave/be fired.

      • Shalashaska

        Yup .. Pretty sure Kojima san wouldnt have allowed such crap in his game.
        Lol I hope Kojima san leaves, makes something new and blows the worlds mind! konami will be left behind working on their cash grab games..

        • Edward Wokhands

          Yeah, I wrote a stupidly long comment somewhere on here. In short I think he should tell The Boss’s WW2 story.

          Her design would be different because she’d be younger and he could give her a new code name of course the Cobra Unit could have slightly different designs and names to avoid copyright crap.

          We could basically learn all of her history up until MGS3, maybe play up until the “crash landing” from MGS3, you know, sneaking through the jungle as The Boss to find Snake. The game could even use an engine similar in appearance to MGS3 HD, I’d still love it.

          During WW2 there were actual solo sneaking missions where solo soldiers had to cross battlefields, kidnap soldiers and take them all the way back to their own side to interrogate. That kind of thing could be explored and we could maybe even see a young Big Boss being trained by her. All of this could be told under a completely new IP, kind of like we know Mighty No 9 is Mega Man we’d know that whatever that is called is basically an MGS game with one of the best characters in the series as it’s lead.

          (This really wasn’t a short comment but oh well, I seriously need Kojima to make that!)

  • BurntFM

    We are Diamond Dogs!

  • vic boss

    I want the game now.

    • Gatsu

      O_O I need it too !

      • MichaelPayneV

        I have the best alternative to play till September, is called MGS3!

        • glitchbomb

          Weren’t you fucking psyched when you heard that the p.c version was not getting released later? I actually thought of you when I saw that.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I got excited but then worried that there might be day 1 issues. I’d be so upset if it didn’t work on day 1 that I’ve gone for the PS4 version instead, then I’ll get the PC version later after the usual week 1 patch period.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, i was, but then after 1 minte i started getting concerned that it will be a russhed port, then i saw that MGO has been delayed, so i calmed down knowing that they did it so that the “Story” will release on all V Platforms at the same time.

            That being said, i’m fighting The Fear!

      • vic boss

        and to think that I might not even get it the day it launches because of the shipping of the CE. I can buy a day one edition and return the sealed one that comes with the CE, but the problem is all the dlc the CE has, if it is inside the box. i’m screwed.
        I’ll see what to do but definitely I gotta have it the day it launches.

        • glitchbomb

          You’re telling me! I got a Japanese collectors edition. >. <

        • Edward Wokhands

          I doubt it’ll be inside the game case. Then again day 1 edition will have a different case won’t it? Couldn’t you get it for PC? I’m actually concerned for people who won’t get it on day 1. -_-

          I was so worried about the CE arriving on day 1 that I saved a little more money and I’ve bought the digital PS4 version and I’m just going to keep the CE version sealed as a collectors item. I CAN’T WAIT ONE MORE DAYYY!!! I’M TOO EXCITED!!!

          I’m going to wait before getting the PC version too. Too many AAA PC games have had day 1 issues so I don’t want that preventing me from playing day 1 too. Damn, gaming has become a mess of logistics. Can’t we just buy and play anymore? ยฌ_ยฌ

    • MichaelPayneV

      24 more days.

    • kirtanloorii

      So nice hearing that classic MGS music with TPP footage.

    • Sockerfri

      B-but… Thats Kojima-sans company name in a trailer! How come?! I thought Konami went all jihad on his watermark.

  • AeroGre

    Guys Gamestop has the Collectors edition in stock again online only

    • glitchbomb

      We are definitely doing a midnight pre release. Hopefully gamestop near you guys will too. (If you got your copy from there)

      • VFox

        Is GS doing a midnight release?!

        • glitchbomb

          Depends on your location. We are. Some locations cannot due to certain restrictions from the location they are in and a few other factors like how many preorders they recieved.

          • VFox

            Oh.. Thanks, if my local GS doesn’t do anything ill just ask a friend to let me download TPP digitally @ 3AM ET ๐Ÿ™

  • Punished “Venom” Snake

    I’m all doing with my free time before the game comes out is playing MGS4 one more time, watch MGSV TPP trailers, then I will try to do the 100% completion in GZ a week or 2 before the release.

  • Shadow Who Walks

    So we will have longer horns in gameplay. The question is whether they will grow as hallucination when snake is bloody, or whether they gradually grow as you play/complete missions.

    • kirtanloorii

      I also wonder whether or not it is related to game time. I have seen BB with the horn at different lengths in some of the same cutscenes.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Maybe there’ll be a barber at the base that cuts your beard, hair and also files your horn down. As you progress you could upgrade his skills so that he’ll be able to sculpt it into little collectible figurines?

  • Pliskin

    Will it stay when quitting the game and returning?

    • MichaelPayneV

      Good question!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Should, after all those kind of things don’t reset, like your load out, since Big Boss keeps what he has got when he gets on the chopper, he will also keep his blood, resetting his blood would be like resetting your loadout or something. That being said there are probably things that do reset it, lol.

  • David “bigboss” richter

    Im probably not going to take too much damage going stealth… btw cheers mgs fans

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah ๐Ÿ™‚ gotta play some more GZ to get used to using a system designed for reflex mode without reflex mode, lol.

      And welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers ( ‘ ‘ )7 we are almost there ๐Ÿ™‚

      • David “bigboss” richter

        Im playing GZ every day jaja, im trying fastest trials world records on xbox one, after doing it on 360. 23 days is a long time ๐Ÿ™ the wait gets worse every day ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Edward Wokhands

          Oooh, I might try that myself. Either that or play through the series again one more time. I wonder if I could get through MGS 1, 2, 3 and 4 and GZ in 23 days?

          • No Place For Hayter

            I’m trying to, lol, while working full time to, what can I say I’m keeping myself very busy, lol.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Same here, it’s been a busy year up until now. I’ve got maybe 1 or 2 hours a night for gaming. It’s made this year go by really quickly.

          • David “bigboss” richter

            u could go through them in 1 day lol it doesnt take more then 3 hours each if u know what u doing

          • Edward Wokhands

            I know but I don’t like speed running them. I’ve tried speed running 3 but I always just end up sitting through all the radio conversations. EVERY time it just turns into a playthrough.

            It’s the game equivalent of one of those movies that you have to watch EVERY time it comes on TV.

          • David “bigboss” richter

            lol amen to that, i speed run them because i played through 2 and 3 at least 50 times, but i understand u

          • Edward Wokhands

            Wow, I have to say (I’ll probably upset some people) that 2 is my least favorite so I’ve only played it maybe 5 or 6 times in my whole life. 3 just blew everything away I’ve probably played it that much too it’s truly a masterpiece. I can’t wait to see the jungle and MGS3 style locations in 5.

            What’s your favorite part of 3? I have a hard time choosing between The End’s battle or sneaking around as a scientist (including the Ivan section, I always spend way too long there). Actually there are more parts popping into my head now. I’m kind of obsessed with 3.

          • David “bigboss” richter

            My favourite mgs is actually peace walker :O lol not because of the story, but the gameplay and modes are so replayable,i love it. Mgs 3 is very deep in my heart,its hard to say whats my favourite part,but the fight against the boss and ocelot in the plain scene are probably my most memorable moments,but the hole thing together is what makes it so special ๐Ÿ™‚

          • glitchbomb

            That’s cool. Never “met” anyone who’s favorite was Peace Walker. For me it was 3. I had played 1 and 2 and just really liked the series at that point but after 3 it became an obsession.

          • David “bigboss” richter

            Im pretty obsessed with the saga too… sometimes i think what the hell am i doing lol

        • gerber

          I was doing the same but somehow my best records have not updated online ;/ offline they are correct but wont update online, on PS3. Someone know how to fix that?

          • David “bigboss” richter

            Be sure that it conects to the servers when starting the game,at the result screen it takes a fes seconds to load it to the leaderboare

          • gerber

            I was always offline and never went offline while playing GZ. I guess that beating the score would update it, but these are tough records to beat! For example 300m tranq headshot or 10 minutes GZ hard full stealth, no weapons

          • David “bigboss” richter

            the 300 tranq shot is almost imposible to beat, because it is the farest posible, but the 10 min ghost play on hard is just memorize the enemy movement, best way to run etc… But if udont know, the leaderboards reset after some time… because i was first on fastest enemy marking on 360, and it got erased. Try the launching enemy as far as posible, thats fun as hell

          • gerber

            Thats a good idea, I will try that!

    • Gatsu

      Welcome dear brother and enjoy your stay ๐Ÿ™‚ !

  • WhatTheJuicay

    Great now all we need is dynamic beard growth like The Witcher 3. Heck I feel every open world game needs this. It’s as natural as the weather. In GTAV I switched beards as if it grew naturally I wish the game automatically did it for me.

    • GUNยฎ

      Big boss and the beard go hand in hand

    • Edward Wokhands

      Hopefully if your beard gets too long it becomes a weapon that chases soldiers around.

  • YupStill

    I like that everyone shouting ‘B-but! Continuity! The bandana!! Why does he have the bandana!! Peace walker! It doesn’t make sense, nothing makes sense!!” and kojima just addressed it as ‘yeah, no I get it. I just put it in as a visual option’.

    With a lot of people complaining about wormholes and Boss speaks Russian! and B-but b-bandana!, I like how Kojima’s like “Chill, guys. It’s just an idea to make the game more fun”

    • Solidus Tรผrk

            Someone good with photoshop, make this existence. I wish to see it.

          I thought it was already confirmed that Chico is Solid Snake? And that Solid Snake is Kojima? And that Kojima is Shigeru Miyamoto? And Shigeru Miyamoto is the NX?

        • MichaelPayneV

          I’m sorry, TPP has a freaking Fire Whale, a Flmaing Volgin, a Floating child, and Time Travel is your biggest problem? Really? Is Metal gear we are talkign about, so what’s you point, mate?

    • Andy37649

      Kaz is so different in this game… seems like his whole soul was taken by anger and hatred. If i already liked him in PW, i will love him in TPP.
      By the way, Konami sucks and we can all agree on that.

      • CodeBox

        Robin Akin Downes does such an amazing job voicing Kaz.
        His voice over in the Red Band Trailer, man I can just feel the pain and suffering in his voice.
        Really looking forward to seeing more of Kaz in TPP he is one of my favorites.

          I feel really sad for Kaz because in Peace Walker he was the cheery, joking sidekick.
          You can see and hear the anger about what he’s lost. He may be more complex than we give him credit for, and I can’t wait to see if he manages to get it together (to be the man we see in Metal Gear 2).

          • glitchbomb

            He has/had a manipulative side to him. But it was for what he thought was the better good.

      • solideater

        Well it is same in real life, if some one or country destroys your home/people you either would be cowering in fear or taking up arms to to defend as well as take revenge for your loved ones.

  • kuaikukia

    this just sad. I hope I’m wrong It seems we can’t have all content of FOB feature unless we pay a real money. But to think this already a full price game. Not to mention on my region, TPP has the highest cost from all games on steam. So it’s so heartbreaking for me that I have to skip my beloved MGS franchise.

  • FMercenary

    Not sure if posted before, but this makes me ‘inwardly laugh at the absurdity, satirise the obscenity, but the hysteria soon wears thin and the tears wear a colder complexion.’ ๐Ÿ™

  • J_muse72

    I just extracted Glaz and Palitz again! I can’t wait to add them to my staff!

  • PACOVELI

    I hope we get to see Grey Fox

  • PACOVELI

    Maybe even Raven?

  • PACOVELI

    And hoping we can play old skool tracks from past metal gear games.
    How about some sort of raiden cameo like in mgs3 or something like raikanov
    And I’m hoping for the return of crocodiles or alligators and more wild-life. I loved the mud/quick-sand in mgs3 and the leeches that suck on to you.
    I wonder about easter eggs and the trophy’s. Anybody planning on getting platinum?

    • CodeBox

      I make it a point to Platinum every game I get, so yes definitely plan to plat TPP.
      But TPP will be a very, very special Platinum.

      • PACOVELI

        Let me add you I am curious about your trophy’s
        Or add me pacoveli88

        • CodeBox

          Sure, I sent you a friend request.
          but before you ask I have to mention that I currently have all my MGS trophies hidden because my goal is to Plat MGS2 (those VR missions!) before I get TPP.
          I know its dumb, but I want to have all MGS Platinums before I finally unveil them.

          • PACOVELI

            I feel ya brother

    • solideater

      I’ll love if we can play as solid snake at the end of the game infiltrating outer heaven as in original metal gear, that would show the story has come full circle….

      • PACOVELI

        Exactly!
        Or at least unlock some kind of solid snake costume. Since this is the last of the series I would love a mgs1, mgs2 and some of the mgs3 and pw outfits.

  • PACOVELI

    Coming to think about it. We had a support budy in mgs4, the markII right?
    I love the scene of mgs3 when snake get’s a gun from eva and is totally hyped out about it.
    I wonder about unlockables after beating the game. The socum would be nice and maybe a solid snake outfit

  • PACOVELI

    I never expected that master Miller was Liquid all that time in mgs1
    I wonder if we get some knowledge about solidus. He was quite an interesting character. Just like big boss he kind of seemed good in a way.
    Thinking of that. I really hope we get some sort of sword fight. I loved the sword fight in mgs2. The first and last part of mgs2 was good. I got chills when I saw solid snake fighting among side raiden the first time.
    Good old days. I dont know why but I remeber my first time metal gear solid playtroughs like it was last year

    • CodeBox

      “Just like big boss he kind of seemed good in a way.โ€

      Somehow I get the feeling that someone who kills a young boyโ€™s parents, takes their son, trains him and a group of other small boys to be child soldiers and makes them eat gun powder with their meals, doesnโ€™t have that much goodness left in them.
      But maybe I hate Solidus more then most because Raiden is my favorite character, and Solidus was nearly single handily responsible for most of his troubles. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      But I too hope to see Solidus in TPP, I would really like to see and know more about him. I remember reading somewhere (I canโ€™t remember where) that even though Solidus was the perfect clone of Big Boss, Big Boss at times still had compassion (might have been a different but similar word, correct me if Iโ€™m wrong), but Solidus lacked this.

      • PACOVELI

        great comment!

        • CodeBox

          Thanks!

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, even though Big Boss is often seen as the Bad guy, he never really was, even in MG and MG2 Big Boss took care of the children that the rest of the world did not care about and only wanted to be rid of. What Big Boss did with them is less than moral, but what else could he do? he only knew war and lives in it, and the world hates him, he cannot treat the kids, he does not know anyone that can, and could not find anyone as nobody would want to take in the children, and Big Boss could not turn half of his revenge business into child psychology care. And so what does Big Boss do? the only thing that he could do, from who he is and what he knows, he takes the children’s war scars and builds them into soldiers of the battle field, it might not be the greatest thing to do but it is the only thing Big Boss can do with the children other than leaving them to suffer alone, I mean just play MG2 again the children love Big Boss, lol.

        • CodeBox

          Yes exactly, could not have been said better.

  • PACOVELI

    Somtimes I make the same tune as quiet: hmmm hmmm, hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm hmmmmmm
    She’a dutch too, I hope I’ll bump into her some day and I will mimic then tune
    See how she reacts.
    My ringtone is the metal gear solid tune
    And my message tone is the codec sound
    It would be hilarious if it would off talking to her. If it was my wife I would say quiet to quiet!

  • PACOVELI

    I love the in-game effects! This is even better then the damage of the suits in the arkham series!
    I would love myself a bloody punished demon snake!
    Big boss should be on bestgore.com

    Maybe we can play as adamska shalashaka revolver ocelot and do the epic gun thing

    • PACOVELI

      Why else would he be in the mgonline clip?
      ?!?!?!

  • glitchbomb
    • PACOVELI

      I like the fox one

    • CodeBox

      Their all nice, but that Outer Heaven one really stands out of the bunch.
      Maybe itโ€™s because the roundness of the emblem compliments the roundness of the watch design?
      It’s times like these I wish I liked wearing watches.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I thought my answer was going to be easy, lol, but each of them have great meaning, history and awesomeness, but I would say the Outer Heaven one, simply because after playing TPP I know I will like that one the most, lol.

  • JJBYACH

    Been lurking here for about a year and a bit. The hype is becoming too real and all of my friends roll their eyes whenever I mention Metal Gear, so yeah, here I am. Noticed some interesting ‘potential’ new information from the GameStop page, i’m not 100% sure its legit (may be some kind of mistranslation or miscommunication between Konami and GameStop or whoever but nevertheless still provides an interesting discussion), so take it with a grain of salt.

    http://www.gamestop.com/collection/metal-gear-solid-5

    *Potential Spoilers*

    “The world that the Boss envisioned may finally become a reality, but can its people suffer the destruction such revolution requires? In the wake of MSF’s fall, Venom Snake awakens from a nine-year coma to lead The Diamond Dogs, a mercenary outfit directed to find the architect of Mother Base’s ruin. Snake tracks them through wartorn Soviet era Afghanistan, stumbling onto a weapons plot directed by the Cipher Organization. Could the ghosts of The Patriots be creating a weapon so terrible that it could outpace even the dreaded Metal Gear system?

    Open World Environment: Play as Venom Sake (Big Boss) through massive open-world environments covering terrain from Cold War Russia to the United States encountering a cast of characters both familiar and downright strange.

    Tactical Stealth at its Finest: As with all games in the series directed by renowned designer Hideo Kojima, players work to infiltrate facilities, avoid enemies, and kill only when absolutely necessary. Metal Gear Solid 5 keeps the espionage tradition alive against the backdrop of stunning visuals and engrossing plotlines.

    Realistic Time and Weather: Experience gameplay with weather patterns that evolve in real-time with a game clock that reflects changing hours and days as players progress through the storyline.

    Even with all the improvements, many fan favorites, including horseback riding and cardboard boxes, remain in this newest installment of the Metal Gear franchise. Use those tools wisely to uncover dark secrets, tackle copious side quests, and roam freely over a nearly endless strategic environment.

    Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Release Date: September 1, 2015”

    • MichaelPayneV

      “from Cold War Russia to United States” so 2 more locations confirmed, Grozny Grad and something in USA, Louisiana perhaps?

    • vic boss

      Very strange… I mean we already know afghanistan and Africa are not the only maps we’ll see, even in mgs4 we only saw middle east so who knows what Kojima may have up his sleeve , but it’s very strange it says United states and Russia.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Grozny Grad is in Russia, soooooo…

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Oh shit . what if we can play some moments of snake eater on the fox engine representing Big boss memories .. Shit…..Shit…..

    • Tong Ninja

      Russia sounds plausible. But USA?? Not sure about that haha.

      Although from this information, it sounds likely that there are other locations other than Africa, Afghanistan and Cyprus. ๐Ÿ™‚
      We know Kojima will keep some locations hidden until TPP is released.

      isn’t occupied Afghanistan considered a part of “Cold War Russia” not only that but other occupied countries at the time where called a “part of Cold War Russia” since they where occupied during the Cold War. and US could be talking about Camp Omega, either way gamestop has a way of inflating the games true description and locales.

      Also when Ken-Ichiro was asked about how many maps he said only 2… and I’ll believe Ken-ichiro before I believe gamestop, gamestop is the same group who told me Last of Us was coming out on xbox360 and I had to get refunded my money becuase it really was a ps3 exclusive

      Don’t know if we can take this seriously. I mean, maybe I read it wrong but other than the new locations it also says horseback riding AND cardboard boxes are all time favorites. Haha

    @Gatsu:disqus kinda off topic and stupid but i wanna see the R&D unit make some berserk weapons! imagine big boss wielding the dragonslayer and DD with a miniature version in his mouth lol ^___^

    • Gatsu

      Haha ;D, yeah Big Boss or DD fighting with some huge badass sword lol. That would be pretty awesome! >:D

  • Gatsu

    Goddamit, I’m really torn up between playing on PS4 or PC when TPP release, because PC version got the same release date now. I originally bought my PS4 and lots of equipment for it basically just for MGSV, CE for example. My PC can’t maybe run TPP at highest settings at 60fps.

    PS4 is the safe bet for a working game and PC port will most likely be great. On PS4 get MGO earlier and not sure how well it work on PC later. Couch gaming with big TV or Desktop. PC get mods later.

    And it’s like half of my MGI buddies will play on PS4 and other half on PC ;(…
    ARGGGhhhh…maybe it has to be PS4 first ;(, so the stuff I bought won’t be for nothing. Would it feel ok to play MGS on PC first, when always on PS before for me :P. But then my Steam buddies noooo… lol. Only 3 weeks away, I gotta decide soon. Maybe I should just relax, lol.

    Why the Big Boss has blue eyes on Ground Zerous and “Big Boss” have GREEN EYES on The Phanton Pain?!

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Lol

      • SolidAmirati

        Even if the whole “head transplant” theory was right… The eye color wouldn’t change…

      • Gatsu

        Oh right, I wonder how that doc’s lawsuit against Konami/Kojima went, lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      To be honest, they are the same colour, for GZ he is under a heavy blue light which highlights the blue and in TPP is is under a much more red light, covered in red blood, which subdues the blue, Big Boss’s eyes seem to have this greenish blue quality, thanks to the FOX engine really messing with eye colour under lighting, I mean lets not forget that Snakes hair in GZ looks grey under certain lighting.

      • SolidAmirati

        I really hope that you’re right…

        • No Place For Hayter

          Me too >.> lol

      Yeah and animals (wolves, bears, etc) can smell the blood on you and try to attack you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      MGS franchise is known for its small/subtle details. So hopefully Kojima Productions thought of this detail and put it in the game! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I watched all the way up until the end:

      a) No gameworks in Tpp 100% confirmed by nvidia / Developers
      b) The phantom pain was original developed on Pc when The hospital scene was revealed
      c) The phantom pain is in Polishing state from months in all Platforms
      d) Metal gear solid = 100% Story . No issues on Mgo delayed whatsoever

      e) More people buying the game = More New kojima fans and global marketing of his creation. Supporting the last kojima game is necessary no matter how fuck up is konami destroying all their franchise to the ground

      I don’t agree in any of his points sorry dude )=

          BTW you reminded me how much things were changing in TPP all along. Not so long time ago I think it was said that you won’t be able to play other than Snake, and I remember when Kojima did not want to include box in TPP and look at it now, box has so many features. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Danny Patten

    I CAN’T FUCKING WAIT ANY LONGER ARGH IT IS KILLING ME

    • I know, this month and every hour at work feels longer coz I have TPP in the back of my head constantly.

  • CodeBox

    Is this a typo, or is the main story line of TPP going to be that sort?

    “First of all, it was confirmed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be the longest game in the entire series. It will take you several hours to complete the main game, plus there are the many side missions included as well with the online component on top of that too.”
    Link: http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-qa-held-on-twitter/

    • Danny Patten

      well, “several” is not a very countable size description is it? “Several hours” could literally mean 5 hours or 150 hours, just my 2 cents

      • Gatsu

        True, but it was confirmed that it will at least be longer than previous MG games story. It really depends on the players, always.

        • solideater

          Well for me to judge a game is long, I usually check speed run for it. If the speed run is close to 1 hour mark that means it is a loooong game ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Yeah that’s funny coz to me, “several” hours sounds short but again as Danny said, it’s not countable. I expect TPP will be long depending on how you approach it. Straight up finishing the story could be quick I guess. But doing side missions in between, dispatches, managing mother base. Doing everything in its entirety as the story progresses. I assume that will take ages. And that’s how I will play it

        • Gatsu

          Same here, with a game having so much stuff to do like TPP, it makes no sense to me just doing main story only. I will explore every place possible and try do everything :).

          • Definitely. It’s the metal gear way. You got to do everything. Every metal gear requires multiple play throughs by standard haha.

      • CodeBox

        Good point I didnโ€™t think of that, Thanks!

    • Tong Ninja

      One journalist from the Japanese Boot Camp (happened last week) rushed through the game to complete it because he had only 3 days. Took him around 40 hours. He probably did a few side missions but completed all the main missions (most likely a quick run of the main missions).

      So the main game will be pretty long compared to past MGS games. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Add on the side-ops, exploration, Mother Base components, etc, it can stretch easily to over 100 hours.

      • CodeBox

        Ok Thanks that makes me feel better.
        I was worried because I know once I start this masterpiece Iโ€™m never going to want it to end.

  • Gatsu

    Just gonna post this again here, if some Steam users haven’t noticed :P.
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/metalgearinformers

    If want to join ask any member for an invite :).

    • I don’t plan on getting TPP on PC just yet, are you guys making a group on consoles??

      • Gatsu

        Yeah it’s being planned somehow I think. Not sure what’s the best way to do it though. Vegas asked me earlier if this Steam group is for PS4 team planning too or if he just make a party in PS4.

        But I guess people can come form a PSN discussion thread on the Steam group too, we’re all bros here after all :). It’s not open to public though, so dont get millions of random people but all members so far can invite. I’m still like 50/50 between starting on PS4 or PC as the release dates are now same, as I’m getting a new graphics card too for PC.

        • Yeah I’m currently building a PC too start gaming. working with I got at the moment. But yeah anyone up for ps4 I’m up for it. I don’t want millions haha. I want hardcore fans of metal gear too play fob and online with. Only just recently got involved with this site and I’m glad I did.

          • Gatsu

            Good to have you here =).

          • Thanks man I appreciate that.

          Which one to start on is a good question, we will 100% the game at least twice, once on our console and once on PC, lol. I did that with PW, one on the PSP once of the PS3, lol.

    Anybody is thinking about this or I’m really the only one? can I use the “MB Staff Code”(from the retail version of GZ) on the digital version of TPP?

    • Raven_Sorrow

      You can. And i think you can even use the PS3 code on a PS4 TPP. Check the code sheet, there is a link that explains the code transfaring.

      • echolution

        what about the save game? is it transferrable? if it’s true what you’re saying, i would be thrilled. I almost ended buying a ps4 copy of GZ (I played the ps3 version)

        • Raven_Sorrow

          well then, i got meh news for you :/ on a gameplay trailer (i don’t remember which one) you can see clearly on the main menu “Transfer data from Ground Zeroes” it may or may not have a select platform :/

    • this is the official chart but I assume it works hardcopy or digitally. same game just on HDD or disc.

  • JJBYACH

    Has there been any info on pre loading on PC? I have pre ordered the physical PS4 copy because my Internet sucks so bad that if I got it on PC (and downloading was available from 00:00 on release day for example) it would finish downloading 2-3 days later. But I want the game on PC, but with a 300KB/s average download speed I doubt that is going to happen without preloaded.

    • Gatsu

      I remember Torashiro, employee of Konami commenting about it last year, that they are planning to do a pre-load for Steam. Lets hope we get something :). I could tweet Rob about it if he knows.

      โ€œWeโ€™re still in talks with Steam about all sorts of details. While Iโ€™m not privy to the specifics, I am sure that
      pre-load will come up at some point. I will of course push for, as Iโ€™m sure our Digital Team is/has/whatev, and hope to have an answer in the future, though this is unlikely to be resolved until we get closer to launch.โ€

      • JJBYACH

        OK sounds good. Thanks.

    • solideater

      Well I have asked Ken-ichiro to answer the exact same question on twitter, hopefully he would reply soon.

  • Gatsu

    Just something I noticed. Ground Zeroes was officially announced on August 30, 2012…
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltH1eWxZutE
    That’s almost 3 years ago… right before TPP releases ;). Such a long time waiting for our masterpiece game, but I still remember it like yesterday when was checking daily news/videos and saw it ;D. I was like …!?
    Gotta love that damn amazing single-shot camerawork in the opening cutscene, it blows my mind every time I start Ground Zeroes mission!

    • Andrea Feletti

      Yeah nearly 3 years later

    • solidsnack

      crazy. i still remember watching this first time and here we are now almost with TPP in our hands. we deserve this for all the peace walker fulton grinding!

      • Hell yeah i have no idea how many hours i put in PW. On psp, hd and vita.

        • solidsnack

          i’m sayin’!

    • Yeah man. It’s so different just having one shot done perfectly than cuts. 3 years. 4 since the moby dick trailer. This is the phantom pain, I feel the game, but it’s not there….

    • NakedSnake85

      i first saw this trailer when i returned home for a week after a month serving at greek military.. it was back at december 2012.. well.. my service ended a 8 months later then i got my self a job a new home with my gf.. i live a happy life in my hometown again but still metal gear was still away.. now after 3 long years of theories trailers GZ more theories more trailers countless comments here and on youtube finally V is only 3 weeks away.. it was such a long painfull and weird journey.. but filled with sweet moments for me.. cause along side with all the changes on my life goof or bad metal gear holds a very special and large place in my heart since 1998..MGS for life.. even though we are all strangers in here you sure feel the same way as i do and for that i salute the awesome metal gear informer community guys.. “You re preety good”

    • No Place For Hayter

      And those 3 years are almost at an end ๐Ÿ™‚ what a trip aye, never thought we would get here.

    • Tong Ninja

      Well prepare yourself for more single camera shots in TPP! There will be plenty of them! haha

    • Shalashaska

      I feel like crying now ;'(

  • @Nyxus
    Hey man, i was wondering, the release date is about to come, so im curious if you will continue giving support to this website with news, clan meetings, matches, etc. Will you, right?

    I hope so.
    Have a nice day, man ๐Ÿ™‚

    • im sure everyone will. and I imagine everyone will have a lot too talk about on release day. haha shoulder support for the ending of the game haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

      • probably pick up my collectors edition and give it back going “don’t lie to me, this isn’t real. You know how long I’ve waited.!!!”

    • Gatsu

      I believe Nyxus will do that :). And as Lefta said below, most likely others too including me. Been stuck with this place for too long just to abandon it after September 1 hehe :D.

      Also those who are wondering why Nyxus isn’t commenting as much as before, well it’s because Nyx is a little busy to the end of this month. But maybe he’ll reply to this Ronin ^-^.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Despite never buying another MGS without Kojima or his team, I will still stick around, it would be sad to disappear after TPP, why stop a good thing right. Like it or not there will always be more MGS for there to be news on. A sad departure but the world moves on, it is upon us to hold dear and remember so the world does not forget after it has moved on.

    • solidsnack

      i love this place i probably visit this site the most out of any at the moment i would be very sad to see it go. i’d love to see us get a proper forum on this site maybe ๐Ÿ™‚ keep up the good work @Nyxus:disqus may our hype party never die even after release!

      • Gatsu

        There has been a forum for a long time :), can find it on the upper side of the page. It’s a bit hidden though which is why some miss it.
        I think there was some discussion of changing it somehow…but not sure how it progress.

        • solidsnack

          haha damn i just realised you need to click the image i thought it was some kinda thing that didn’t take off so it was closed because of the message at the bottom >:-)

          • Gatsu

            Yeah need to click the X image, didnt notice it first myself. I try spend some time over there, but recently haven’t been to the forums much when lots of nice commenters on this side too.

          • slickrickisbigboss

            i signed up but this name was taken so now it’s slickrickisbigboss on the forums haha hopefully see you on there.

      • Great!!!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Snake and Kaz look like they about to drop the sickest Mixtape of 2015, thinking they N.W.A and shit!

      big boss is a str8 killa mane

      • MichaelPayneV

        Kaz: Snake is his name, and this soldier is coming…
        Snake: Straight outta Fox, is the Soldier that will slaughter your mother, and your Country think I love her, Dangerous, mothafukka raising Hell…

        • solidsnack

          Snake: …Ocelot think i stink & that’s a problem – I see a motherfuckin Bear, i don’t dodge him – but i’m smart, crouch low, sneak a while and when i see a Guard get tranq’d i smile!

    • haha. straight outta coma, crazy mother***er named venom snake dude.

      • haha lol sorry thought that was funny as and it took me back. that was actually spontaneous, could of kept going hahaha

        • solidsnack

          we need weekly metal gear themed rap battles

          • No Place For Hayter

            Would be funny, but I would run for my life, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            CRAB BATTLE!

    • Gatsu

      LOL awesome XD

    • stocchinet .

      I’m already burned by the fire it contains even without listening to it

  • As much as I love the E3 2015 trailer. The GDC 2013 will always be my favourite. it was the official first and a few scenes of ground zeroes that haven’t happened yet which obviously indicates that there’s more after the “helicopter crash”

    • Robin Besch

      that one and nuclear may very well be the best trailers i’ve ever seen.
      these songs are so intense!

      • MichaelPayneV

        For me is Not your kind of people = Elegia > Sins of the Father > Nuclear > This new one that is, meh!

        • slickrickisbigboss

          yup, not your kind of people is amazing. definitely my favourite. i’m gonna have to have that song on my custom mgsv playlist.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Are you referring to the trailer not done by Kojima? that was amazing, glad Kojima is not doing them anymore………. just kidding don’t kill me please, lol. Honestly that trailer was grade A generic American action flashy stuff, no proper music, no proper pacing, no proper mysterious or themes or well anything really meaningful, it is a regular trailer, but in the world of MGS Kojima trailers IT WAS GARBAGE.

          funny I thought the GDC one was GARBAGE ๐Ÿ˜‰ get it?

          • glitchbomb

            Meh. Opinions. I loved it. Thought the pacing was fine and painted a beautiful picture. Also the first time I saw certain characters. I watched that trailer in slow motion more than the others.

        • SNKtheStampede

          I totally agree.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I agree

    • Gatsu

      Hmmm I love them all, but GDC trailer maybe is the best for me if really have to choose one. It showed that they’re both MGSV and made me feel the phantom pain of losing my dear MB. I love the middle part in the song, which is so dreamlike. Seeing the hospital sequence is awesome and I’m really looking forward to it. Then the ambulance crash, car and BB spinning around, glass, papers and pills flying in the air while the soldier in front falls down to the ground.

      https://youtu.be/pRSZy12EOSs?t=129
      Such beautifully done scenes with the incredible song T_T.

      Nuclear or Elegia maybe 2nd, but it’s really hard to choose. They’re all fantastic and I’d expect nothing less from Kojima!

      • glitchbomb

        Agreed!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed, still my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

      Even though we knew TPP was MGSV, it was such an impact, and the way the way it threw it at us with the instrumental middle of the song, glorious ๐Ÿ™‚ it was also the first time we knew his coma was 9 years, which revealed a lot for us.

      • glitchbomb

        So confused. Thought you just said a bunch of relatively derogatory things about it just a moment ago. Including mentioning it was honestly generic American action. Lol >. <

  • echolution

    Just checked the MGI list, and wow, 226 people from various backgrounds, countries, platforms and still counting! Maybe we should start our own real-life MB and FOB XD

    • haha maybe that’s kojimas plan….

      • echolution

        it’s just sad this is the last title of his trademarks, hopefully he’ll make something new and still can remind us of his work in MGS

        • well I wouldn’t be surprised if he made sequels under the sly. and would we follow his sequels than konami’s app games. haaha. does kojima own the rights to metal gear or konami??

          • echolution

            Sadly, it’s not Kojima, you can see from the way Konami wanted to erase Koj existence from the game, clearly shown that nothing in the game mention about his name ๐Ÿ™

      • No Place For Hayter

        Funny how we are all binding together, lol, the FOB system is designed as a cycle of revenge, you are supposed to fight back and forth always with revenge for the last time that person invaded you, lol, but we are turning it on its head and revenge will not really be a part of it, just protection and sport, lol. That revenge cycle will still apply to people we don’t know, but within our community and the online community we build with everyone will be free from that, lol.

  • MichaelPayneV

    I have a felling that The Boss will appear in TPP the same way Joker appears in Arkham Knight.

    I won’t spoil how, if you played it, you know how. So, would you like it?

    • is it like how skull face appears to be a figment of BB’s imagination in the E3 2015 trailer.??

      • MichaelPayneV

        No, is similar….identical to how you see the chick in Dead Space 2!

        • nah haven’t played that either. like Fight Club the movie??

          • MichaelPayneV

            She would basically be part of Snake Subconscience, only Snake would see her, and she would be the voice of reason, putting questions, messing with you psychically from time to time, blaming you for everything, which would end up in a Nightmare BOSS Battle (no pun intended)

  • Hayters Gonna Hayte

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been following the site for half a year now, and I see you have a great community.

    I only wanted to say Hi as my first comment really ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s great to have this site as my first-hand Metal Gear news source.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome ( ‘ ‘ )7 glad to have more with us comrade, the wait till be painful but fun ๐Ÿ™‚

      Seems like we will get along just dandy ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yeah, we seem to be the lurker converter, lol, but it helps by being fans of the same thing MGS ๐Ÿ™‚ I doubt we could convert all the lurkers anywhere but being fans of MGS makes it easier, lol.

    • Robin Besch

      same here bro, im on the hype train since GDC 2013 but signed up only two days ago.

      • No Place For Hayter

        I MISSED A WELCOME WAGON 0.0 lol

        Belated welcome, it’s great to have you with us ๐Ÿ™‚ gotta keep a sharp eye out for people whom just signed up, somtimes I can’t keep up, lol, scrolling through slightly older comments is something I usually don’t do, lol.

        Let us share the HYPE, ( ‘ ‘ )7

      • Gatsu

        Welcome =), if I didn’t already say it! So many joining recently so I might’ve forgotten ;D.

    • glitchbomb

      Welcome brother! No more lurking! Very soon now we will see each other on the battlefield!

  • Leviathan

    hey guys anybody noticed this too?

    • a lot of staff to collect and then get higher rankers like in PW

      • slickrickisbigboss

        i’m looking forward to more hours of grinding haha this time it’ll be a lot of fun with the various takes on missions.

        • Same man and it’s not just soldiers anymore. Artillery, trucks tanks containers and sheep haha. Grinding with a bit of humour.

    • Leviathan

      oh and u can see below the “PF Rank” that he has 8 nukes รดo

    • RJRO

      They have 8 nukes. Where did they get it?

      • I wasn’t too sure if that meant nukes or not but makes sense.

        im assuming that 63 is structures in MB. so its going to get massive, if that’s the only one we’re making.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Either, buying them, getting one from ZEKE, getting some from Skull Face, getting them from Zero, building them, or collecting them from around the world.

        But why have a number for your amount of nukes? can you use them? are they important? do they represent how much of a danger you are? are they good to an extent but evil past that? lol so many questions.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yep ๐Ÿ™‚ didn’t put much thought into it though, but now that I have THATS A LOT OF STAFF 0.0

    • slickrickisbigboss

      that’s 1665 in total ๐Ÿ˜ couldn’t they have added one more to add to the theme and make it 1666? lol

    • GUNยฎ

      Wow! It’s gonna feel like a real army with those numbers.

    • GUNยฎ

      Anyone know what does “Espg. Rank” and “PF Rank” mean?

      • No Place For Hayter

        “Espg. Rank” = Espionage Rank, which we saw increase when the FOB was invaded and the players did special things, don’t know if the rank will tie into your story actions or not, but it is a rank you increase or decrease depending on how ESPIONAGE you are, lol, probably works similar yo how Camaraderie worked in PW or something.

        I would have to think about “PF Rank” though, nothing immediately comes to mind.

        • GUNยฎ

          Thanks!

        • Ardens Anima

          “Private force”?

      • echolution

        PF, as it “Parts Factory” maybe? the rank measures how fast you could build somethimg from parts that are collected in the free-roam mode. Just maybe XD

      Did anyone else notice that the Bosses gun, The Patriot, looks like a penis. It’s got some big balls on it too.

      • JablokoMoloko86

        When you pointed that out… Yes xd it lokis like dick xd

  • MichaelPayneV

    Gatsu, could you please send me an invite in your steam group? Now I can accept it, I forgot I had steam on my phone as well!

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Never mind, found the notification!

    • Gatsu

      Yeah sent it now :), sorry I thought I did it already but it seems I forgot, lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • MichaelPayneV

        Thank you.

  • had a thought just before watching the E3 2015 trailer.
    there’s definitely going to be a duality and even a conflict of opinion with Ocelot and Kaz. Even picking sides, but look at the future… We are obviously going to back up Ocelot 100%, sorry Kaz.
    Kaz deems BB a monster, yet I’m sure his vengeance is much greater, he just sends BB to do the dirty work. But Ocelot, look at MGS4. He changes his personality to BB’s son and takes on the other superior son on purpose to eventually bring BB to life. 30 years later. BB is pretty much his father figure in a way. Coz after all Ocelot is The Boss’s son.
    But it could just be all in the end about killing Zero. ( which it is). and how did that happen, bringing BB back to life coz at the end of MGS4, BB is the one that kills him, very easily lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I hope TPP does not confine itself to the story of MGS4, I want some sort of resolution to my vengeance, it kind of sucks thinking that TPP literally does nothing for the end result, that might be part of the theme, but still there has to be some serious progression of the war and relation between Zero and Big Boss for it to overcome the end lock that MGS4 put in place.

      • oh hell yeah, the ultimate snake and rat. haha. but they better follow the storylines. zero doesn’t die, Kaz and BB will break apart. but in the end, Kaz, BB and even Ocelot go to America and train and are part of Foxhound. Liquid and Frank Jaegar. BB and Gray Fox are heading Outer Heaven and Liquid is ment to wait years too come but hates BB coz hes not involved.
        it’ll be interesting what they do if they do follow they storylines. I they do follow them, there is no more closure for vengeance. It can go either way. dp they show BB in Foxhound and commanding Solid Snake and end with them fighting. does Master Miller know BB is running Foxhound even though he left yers before. Anything.

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    It seems my worse fear about the TPP has been realized. Snake CANNOT swim.
    So there are no water based bosses or going for a snorkel for goodies in a river or lake in Africa. PITY! That’s a real shame, cause it’s kinda always been a part of the series.

    http://gamingbolt.com/metal-gear-solid-5-snake-cant-swim-story-mode-is-longer-fob-needs-ps-plus-and-xbox-live-gold

    “Forward Operating Base, you would need PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold. However FOBs can be developed and customized even if you are offline or you can skip FOB all together and be offline.”

    I hope we don’t actually need an Plus/Gold account just to start developing a base offline. Now that would be a shitty Konami thing to do.

    • Jedediah Carender

      That does suck, but even so TPP will be amazing. The final chapter in this great saga that we all love. So fellow Diamond Dogs let the l3gend live.

    • G Yoh Aquino

      maybe they purposely denied it to avoid spoilers…?
      heck, you can swim in mgs 4, so why not in mgs v.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      ……… Ps plus/ Xbox live is obligatory in any game on the maket.
      Snake can’t swim ? Kojima ruined my life..I’m gonna make sepukku right now ..

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        The paywall is totally unnecessary. It’s there because folks keep paying for it. No online paywall for PC games. As for the loss of swimming. MGS3’s The Pain boss battle being a great example. Your obviously a noob to the series. Because any real fan would be annoyed. It’s seems TPP is not a true open world game after all.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          You think kojima can change the market and companies would allow to set free online in the game ? You are crazy . I’m not a noob but really i don’t argue with people like you . The game will be a masterpiece and there is no more to talk about it . See ya friend

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I’m not arguing, just stating a fact about a core gameplay mechanic that’s been removed. Doesn’t Xbox live have advertising? Does MS offer free advertising to company’s? NOPE!. So why are we paying for it?

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Go and cry more to the companies in charge . Sony / Microsoft . Kojima productions or even the companies who make games doesn’t control this feature you hate so much.

          • MichaelPayneV

            They are to blame for this, for accepting this BS!

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            What bullshit dude? i’m a pc gamer even my self too. There is no fucking game since ps4 / xbone with free online . That is why i don’t see any issues

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then you are part of the problem, my friend!

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I can’t believe that you people are crying about this on Mgsv .

          • MichaelPayneV

            Is not about MGSV, is about the principle.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Why are still here? I thought you didn’t want to argue? You live subscription is nearly up, go pay MS to beat advertising in your face.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I couldn’t have said it better myself!

          • GUNยฎ

            Let’s be real here, swimming is hardly a core gameplay mechanic for MGS games, it was barely in 1 (it wasn’t even swimming just running underwater somehow), in 2 it was part of a small escort mission, in 3 it was used the most but still limited compared to overall gameplay, in 4 snake could swim but I can only think of one tiny body of water where it was used, it was more of a puddle really and of course it was absent in PW and GZ.

            Also lets keep in mind the game is set in a desert in Afghanistan and Africa, and while Africa has rivers, they look pretty shallow.

      • Surfing, while taking the ‘rays’ of sun! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • solideater

        On a glimpse I thought it was a Jehuty. I wish Kojima makes a spiritual successor to Zone of the Enders, Snatcher, Policenauts, Silent Hills ….. even Botkai Series

    • MichaelPayneV

      Which is why is best to get TPP on PC, no monthly subscription required to play the FOB online!

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Exactly!

        • MichaelPayneV

          Plus, better graphics, and the freedom of not having to chose between a PS, Xbox Controller or M&K, if you have the balls you can even use a Guitar as the controlling device, as that guy played and finished Dark Souls 2!

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I have a highend PC. But I purchased the PS4 Collectors Edition the first week it was available. If I had known the PC version was coming day one. I wouldn’t have made that mistake.

            Think I’ll just buy it the PC version and keep the Ps4 Collectors Edition sealed in it’s boxed.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I do have to say, I’m concerned that Nvidia gives TPP for free, Arkham Knight was also the same, and the PC releasing sooner? I think it will be broken at launch!

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Arkham knight was totally broken thanks to Iron galaxy and becouse warner give the game to these people some months before release. Nvida was no the issue there . Is in every single hardware forum and news . What the fuck are you talking about ? Tpp has no gameworks and i trust in Kojima productions.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m talking about Game works, but about Nvidia giving it for free for new GPU’s, and since Hideo is basically out, i’m concerned that the PC version needed a delay, but Konami said “Funk it, we need to cash in on all platforms day 1, ready to release or not!”

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Look arkham knight runs badly with gameworks on / off . If you know how things works. Nvidia give the source code to developers and they pay money for it . They are free to choose some features or not. Kojima productions like Gz will not support Gameworks in any kind related . But the perfomance in arkham night was indeed the bad port of Unreal engine in to pc . Most of the issues belong to Bad texture streaming and Hard drive issues/ assets. That is why Mgsv will work the same as Gz. If you are in this franchise for years you will know Kojima would destroy the game before see the light of launched Broken games. There is no way Tpp will be a bad Port. Remember me when the game comes

          • MichaelPayneV

            As I said, Kojima has no control anymore, Konami on the other hand has no problem releasing a broken game.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            You are wrong the game was finish long time ago and the Game works on Pc since they Hospital scene was shown ( Geforce old titan ) . The fox engine is one truely Pc engine and works great. You are been Delusional

          • solideater

            You Know having multiple copies i.e. one for PC and one for Console would not be a bad idea ๐Ÿ™‚

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Stop scaring me. Ground Zeroes was a perfect port, so I’m not as afraid. I just hope that there aren’t any Windows 10 issues.

          • MichaelPayneV

            GZ came on PC 9 months later, and TPP comes the same day, so take a guess!

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            You have a point. I may need to unbox that Collectors Edition after all. After the PC release drops 30 frames for no reason then gives me a blue screen of death to really rub it in.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            But I think it will be fine. It’s seems the engine is CPU reliant. A highend GPU or two is only needed for 4k. Luckily I have an i7 and a GTX 980. So 1080p/1440p, 60FPS maxed, should be no problem. It will cream it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I got i5 GTX 970 and 16 Ram, so even if is broken, I can still play it, but still, not everyone has PCs like mine, so I would still be mad if is broken.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Your system will max the game at 60FPS 1080p no problem. Might even get 1440p and a solid 60FPS. We will have to wait and see.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hope so.

          • I don’t think that.
            The problem with Batman was the port developers and the low amount of time to port it to PC. That was happened.

            Take a look the great work KP did with Ground Zeroes in PC.

            Don’t worry for that, the game will go nice. You will see. ๐Ÿ˜€

          • solideater

            The Arkham Knight port was given to Iron Galaxy Studios, developers of KI season 2 and 3. They also ported origins and you know how that turned out. Konami is internally building the port for the PC version. I say i have more faith in internal team than some third party C team.

          • Just watched that video with the guy playing with the guitar, lol.
            Anyway, DS2 is easier than DS1. At least for me.
            I’m playing DS2 actually.

            Have a nice day, mate ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Because he is not Big Boss (He is Solidus), he never learned how to swim, and you can’t pass that knowledge throught cloning people; swimming is an adquired hability, not a birth skill… :O
      I freaking knew it!!!1

      (LMAO, 50% kidding)

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        It’s seems there will be no base infiltration by sea. Never learned to swim? Guess he forgot that he could speak Russian fluently too? Why does he need to fulton an interpreter? He could be Solidus(kidding).

        • Yup. Also that thing with the russian. I can’t believe he knew how to speak it, and after 9 years in a comma, he forgets everything… Hmm…

          What would be the first thing you should learn if you are in the middle of the sea? To swim.
          I can’t believe this. C’mon, Snake is a soldier, he should know these things to survive…

          Argh, well, the truth is near. We will know everything! ๐Ÿ˜€

          I can’t believe the game is almost there, after all these years waiting for it… :_ )

    • Tong Ninja

      Why swim to Mother Base when you can fly there by Helicopter?? haha
      Plus that bionic arm of his and the multiple weapons he carries might be a problem when he swims. Not to mention damaging that expensive iDroid. There are also boundaries for all the map regions as well so that you can’t go out swimming to sea. It was probably a level design choice from Kojima.

      I wouldn’t say swimming is a MAJOR CORE mechanic in MGS franchise
      There was no swimming in MGS1 (I think), swimming was in MGS2 but that was when you played as Raiden. MGS3 had a few swimming areas but half of them were shallow. MGS4 had one swimming area but was pretty shallow. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I mean I get what you are saying. Since Metal Gear is going open world, it should incorporate swimming in lakes/rivers/ponds/etc to increase stealth infiltration options. Afghanistan will have very few water sources because it’s a desert after all. Africa, I would imagine will have shallow streams/rivers/ponds you can wade through. From what I’m seeing, vast majority of the bases/fortresses Snake can infiltrate are inland and not near water sources. haha

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Swimming was a core mechanic. haha. And there was swimming in MGS1, at the beginning. haha. Taking it away just makes no sense. haha. It restricts Snake and kills the sense of exploration. haha. Exploring a lake or river in Africa would have been very cool. haha. Or infiltrating a base via a near by river?. haha. I guess we can count crocodiles and other water based wildlife out. haha.

        • solideater

          Don’t worry on PC we will make him fly on its own..you know mods…oh thinking about mods i shudder to think what would happen to Quiet ๐Ÿ™‚

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Naked Quiet mods are gonna happen.

        • Tong Ninja

          ?? I never said I was a professional Metal Gear Solid lore master! XD

          Yes, thank you for correcting me about MGS1 (hence why I said “I think?”). ๐Ÿ™‚
          Okay let me correct myself, swimming was a core mechanic for MGS2 and MGS3. MGS1 (unless there are other swimming parts that I’m ignorantly forgetting?), MGS4 and Peace Walker had minimal or non-existent swimming parts.

          Big Boss has a bionic arm now. Do you think the bionic arm will enable him to swim efficiently (without rusting or weighing him down)??

          Maybe Kojima’s map level designs will contain only small, shallow water sources. Hence why they said he cannot swim because there aren’t any areas for him to swim in or explore.
          Yeah I was looking forward to wearing the crocodile cap and hiding with the crocodiles! XD

          EDIT: I checked the Afghanistan map and there is a large lake at the top …. interesting.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The special forces have water proof equipment. There is no reason why Huey and his team could not make the bionic arm and iDroid water proof. They have stealth camo and a wormhole fulton for heavens sake. It’s just a bad dev design choice.

            It was one of the reasons why I disliked Peace Walker. Quite a few mechanics were removed from that game. First person view, crawling and hiding under or inside objects. That large lake would be interesting if we could swim in it.

          • Tong Ninja

            Ah fair point, fair point.

            Regardless if he can’t swim or not, TPP will still be an amazing game (hopefully!). ๐Ÿ˜€
            Trust in Kojima (remember it’s his first attempt at making an open world game … he probably had to sacrifice or abandon a few design choices).

            Peace Walker was really fun! But yeah there were some issues with it, which you have already described in your post. haha

    A little bit off topic but I was just thinking about how sad was the ending of Big Boss in mgs4 and then I found this video. It got me right in the feelings, I mean all the things BB will have to go trough in mgsv and the fact that he said that from the moment he killed the boss he was already dead. Idk it got me pretty emotional. It also has a time line , that I’m pretty sure is a little off of what happened , but still good to see.
    https://youtu.be/VuwbGrItyFs

    • vic boss

      Here is one from solid snake, the time line here is very good , I mean synchronized with the song it is really good to watch. Honestly idk who got it worse in their lifes from BB or SS, and all I can say is that I can’t wait anymore for mgsv and that the franchise is at least for me, the best in gaming, is the only one that has managed to make cry. So Thanks to Kojima and thank you guys for being as passionate as I am for Metal Gear.

    • Lewis

      Well, why did you have to do it? I just forgot about those 2 videos, now I’m gonna watch 5 times a day again. lol

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      This video and TPP will help close the circle on the story of Big Boss. The next logical step is to tell the story of The Boss. How she formed The Cobra Unit, got pregnant and won WWII. A Metal Gear remake simply wouldn’t work unless they want to go back to linear story telling and level design. Plus,
      We already know Solid Snakes story. And it’s nowhere near as interesting as the above two.

    • solideater

      You know the life of any person who has been given the code name of snake has been very tough, full of turmoil and heartache. But still of all the snake, the inferior one came out on top. Just wish he had a better ending…

            Quote from a trailer, cleverly altered to keep in line with the theme that the previous replies have established.

          • solideater

            You Know Guys, the first platform on which it would release would be on X-360 as it has rampant piracy and usually games releases one week before actual release ๐Ÿ™

  • NakedSnake85

    Something that really bothers me..
    Big Boss at the end of peace walker technically established Outer heaven. So Skullface was the first one that destroyed outer heaven. In Mgsv trailers outer heavens logo appears even though we are running Diamond Dogs during thephantom pain. thoughts. i know the obvious answer is that big boss was in a come so outer heaven was re -created after the events of TPP.. but is this the case??

    • Bigger Boss

      I was thinking same thing. Remember that early trailer, which shows Big Boss on a motorcycle. Kaz is heard saying, “Diamond Dogs, our new home”. Kaz/Ocelot start DD and when they rescue Big Boss, he becomes apart of it and leads it. Outer Heaven is more of a Big Boss thing, that is always in the back of his mind. Then, the last trailer Kaz is heard saying “we have only two choices, heaven or hell”. Big Boss replies “no, there’s another”. So I’m thinking Outer Heaven is more related to Snake, and as Phantom Pain progresses, he finally restores Outer Heaven, where soldiers are always welcomed and fighting/war is constant. Where as Diamond Dogs/MSF is more of a business/mercenary thing….??

    • GUNยฎ

      I think Diamond Dogs will either become Outer Heaven (not the mother base but the actual soldiers/staff) or Diamond Dogs will get destroyed and BB will have to start rebuilding his army once again, this time in Africa, although that might be a bit much, having his army wiped out again I mean.

      Although in general I don’t think everything is as it seems, Big Boss in a 9 year coma (making it his second coma even though Kojima said there is only 1 and that PP will explain it) and other things make me wonder.

      Now this is how games SHOULD work and always did until the past few years. We always saw rough footage and screens and then the actual game would be shockingly good. Looks like Kojima is sticking with logic and honor. (I still think him leaving has something to do with micro-transactions.)

    Youtube channel MetalGearPlanet interviewed Donna Burke. It’s around 14.5 minutes, so if anyone is interested, here it is! ๐Ÿ™‚

    She talks about a bit about the two songs: Sins of the Father and Quiet’s Theme. She thinks Quiet’s Theme is the song of the game (more than Sins of the Father haha). However, “Sins of the Father” she said was the best song she has sang in her music career. She plans to sing this song live at a concert in future hopefully.
    She had praise for Kojima, Kojima Productions and Stefanie Joosten (Donna worked with her in studio) as well.

    • FMercenary

      “Quiet’s Theme” being the song of the game is quite interesting in contrast to the “Words that/can kill” lines. The song seems like it can be the “calm after the storm” type song playing at the end credits that will leave us in a somber mood shedding tears.

    Why GameStop is excited for Metal Gear Solid V

    The world that the Boss envisioned may finally become a reality, but can its people
    suffer the destruction such revolution requires? In the wake of MSF’s fall, Venom
    Snake awakens from a nine-year coma to lead The Diamond Dogs, a mercenary outfit
    directed to find the architect of Mother Base’s ruin. Snake tracks them through wartorn
    Soviet era Afghanistan, stumbling onto a weapons plot directed by the Cipher
    Organization. Could the ghosts of The Patriots be creating a weapon so terrible that it
    could outpace even the dreaded Metal Gear system?

    Open World Environment: Play as Venom Sake (Big Boss) through massive
    open-world environments covering terrain from Cold War Russia to the United
    States encountering a cast of characters both familiar and downright strange.

    Tactical Stealth at its Finest: As with all games in the series directed by
    renowned designer Hideo Kojima, players work to infiltrate facilities, avoid
    enemies, and kill only when absolutely necessary. Metal Gear Solid 5 keeps the
    espionage tradition alive against the backdrop of stunning visuals and
    engrossing plotlines.

    Realistic Time and Weather: Experience gameplay with weather patterns that
    evolve in real-time with a game clock that reflects changing hours and days as
    players progress through the storyline.

    Even with all the improvements, many fan favorites, including horseback riding and
    cardboard boxes, remain in this newest installment of the Metal Gear franchise. Use
    those tools wisely to uncover dark secrets, tackle copious side quests, and roam
    freely over a nearly endless strategic environment.

    Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Release Date: September 1, 2015

    • Cesare Di Maio

      ” ….open-world environments covering terrain from Cold War Russia to the United

            I don’t know if you know this, but I noticed in the recent Gamescom demos, that Big Boss doesn’t do the “Hyah, Hyah” sounds every 2 seconds when he rides D-horse. I think Kojima Productions fixed that problem. haha

          • Javier

            Maybe the hya is when you hit the button. I did some research and tpp won’t be playable. Only pes. Fuck.

  • WrongDirectionZ

    Why Big Boss turns into a demon!

  • I only recently noticed this ( Don’t know if this was already pointed out or not), could Ishamel be holding onto Skull Face’s shotgun in this debute trailer ? https://youtu.be/jfxTOlXF3Kk?list=PLdpzz23L6MtYjRWSNC3fpbNhPnbnG-01I&t=133
    2:13 – 2:16

    • Raven_Sorrow

      Can’t really see. But it actually looks more like a SOCOM than skullface’s shotgun xD Like in a frame you can see some kind of block like a LAM ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • GUNยฎ

        Agreed, looks more SOCOM than shotgun.

    Some Twitter Q/A (sorry if it’s already old)
    —————————————————–

    Q: So you can fight with your friend to defend his FOB? (@ThatMightyGuy)

    A: Not at the same time, there is no co-op but you can fight in place of them to defend his/her base.

    Is the Motherbase/FOB platform architecture randomly generated when you build a new one, or can you manually design each platform? (@Android_LJ)

    What you can decide is the placement of your defenses and to what level you want each area covered. This includes how many soldiers, security devices, or high-powered weapons are available in each area.

    Follow-up: So will all FOB/Motherbase platforms have the same construction layout? Will every FOB I invade look the same?

    Because players will develop their FOBs at their own rate and customize them, no, they won’t look the same. But the platforms themselves have similar architecture across the community.

    What online features are tied to the PS Plus service on PS4? (@Jormungandblood)

    To play online, you’ll need to have PS Plus subscription for PS4 and Xbox Live Gold for Xbox One/Xbox 360. This includes Forward Operating Bases and Metal Gear Online. Additionally, FOBs can be developed and your base defenses can be customized while you’re offline.

    Will the microtransactions impede gameflow with timers or is it limited to camo and skins for online purposes? (@Ninja7emon)

    No additional purchases need to be made to complete or build anything in the game, however you can use MB coins to speed up development as well as within the FOB system.

    • echolution

      So what i get is one allthesame arhitecture and buildings, but different defense layouts and security rosters?

      • JohnnyAB

        Seems like it, maybe we can customize what/how certain platforms connect (?), but not the platform itself except for what’s mentioned, think of color/emblem, security detail etc.

    • GUNยฎ

      Disappointing that we can’t place platforms where we like, I’m worried the FOBs will be too similar and end up being repetitive.

      • Yell

        They didn’t say you couldn’t choose where to place platforms, they just stated that we wouldn’t be able to customize the architecture of a single platform.

        • GUNยฎ

          Mmmm, I dunno, it’s not awfully clear, you may be right but when he says

          “Because players will develop their FOBs at their own rate and customize them, no, they won’t look the same.”

          That says to me that no you can’t otherwise he would have said that players could place struts wherever they want. You could argue that he’s including that when he says ‘customize’ but I get the feeling that means colour and logo.

          I really hope you’re right though, I’d love to try to recreate Big Shell from MGS2.

      • korruption

        They don’t want people using the platforms and struts to write: “FUCK YOU KONAMI!” XD

      • echolution

        In other words, replayability then? MBs and FOBs maybe similar but it’s up to players how they organized their defence and tackle the attackers or how they attack strategies. The different player levels, skills, tactitcs, and weapons, also AI guards pattern and defence emplacements may affect gameplay so IMHO i think it won’t be too repetitive. Hopefully it’s the same feeling for me when I used to play Counter Strike with LAN connection, and playing on the same map over and over and over again. I felt the game was repetitive when i already played it for six straight months. Every weekend i always played with my friends, even though I had a PS1 and MGS has just been released. Saturdays for MGS and Sundays for CS. No girlfriend hahaha…sigh T_T
        I hope TPP is going to be awesome in a new perspective, besides, isn’t Koj always surprises us? That’s why I respect and adore him so much. I also hope he can revive ZOE too outside konami. Snake already got his hands on Jehuty arms ๐Ÿ˜›

  • echolution

    That bandana (on the image above). Is it possible we can get a MGS1-style sneaking suit? That bandana surely works well with snake’s sneaking suit from MGS1. IMHO, Looks better than GZ’s sneaking suit too.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      TPP’s sneaking suit is an homage to MGS1 sneaking suit ๐Ÿ˜‰ http://33.media.tumblr.com/9acec095f76c0cdcbecc635fc73d6724/tumblr_inline_nc325asEw91r7fr4g.jpg Side by side

      • echolution

        I see,so that’s why I saw some similarities on both version of sneaking suit. aweesooommmeee XD

      • JJBYACH

        Is it just me that finds Big Boss surprisingly attractive in that shot… Surely I’m not the only one who thinks that, right?

        • No Place For Hayter

          I’m sure Quiet does, lol.

      • solideater

        Now I Really think there would be a way to play as Solid Snake even a DLC…

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    This is off topic but i just don’t know where else to turn. Im looking for an anime series based on pirates. Traditional sea faring pirates not space or anything. If any of you have seen The Watchmen well there is a comic in the movie called The Tale of the Black Freighter, its something like this that I’m looking for.

    • echolution

      One piece maybe? They’re all pirates :p

      • Mini gear

        is one piece technically all filler?

      • Yeah the only pirate anime I know is One Piece

      • Gatsu

        One Piece ftw! xD

    • No Place For Hayter

      Traditional sea faring pirates? you got me on that one. The only one I know of is One Piece, never watched it though.

  • Ravenous

    Just found this: http://youtu.be/k5nuorsM2bg

    How incredible would it be if we could indeed have the U.S and Russia in TPP? Oo

    What do you guys think, screwup by gamespot-writer, or accurate info that wasn’t supposed to be public quite yet?

    • Possible but I don’t think that those loactions would be open world like Africa and Afghanistan

      • Danny Patten

        Probably going into the direction of Camp Omega size, maybe double or more layers to it but not as open world as Afghanistan or Africa

      • Ravenous

        Me neither, if Afghanistan is abit over 1/3 of the game’s total size, I would imagine that U.S and Russia will probably be abit like Shadow Moses (the actual facility) in MGS4, much smaller in scale than Africa and the U.S.

        But if the U.S is indeed in the game I’ll be really freakin’ dissapointed if Gray Fox and Naomi aren’t in the game ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Gatsu

      We shall see all the secrets soon :)…

    • JJBYACH

      Am I the only person that doubts that there are any additional maps other than the ones we have seen already? The Afghan and Africa maps seem so huge and filled with meaningful content I am personally contempt with just them.

      • Steven Michael Brown

        No way there are more maps. At least nothing significant or else they would use them for promotion leading up to release date

        • Ravenous

          IIRC going back to Shadow Moses was’nt mentioned anywhere pre-release of MGS4, and the entirety of the Big Shell chapter of MGS2 was also kept under wraps right?
          It wouldn’t suprise me in the slightest if there are more locations than Afghanistan+Africa+Camp Omega and the Hospital ๐Ÿ™‚

          Edit: and ofcourse Mother Base

          • Dotcum22

            Yes i believe it will be Afghanistan africa and cyprus (hospital) plus camp omega for GZ owners…

          • Steven Michael Brown

            That’s cool I didn’t know that!

  • umbralex
  • kirtanloorii
    • GUNยฎ

      As much as I agree with this video, I’m not sure I’d be able to stop myself from buying a future MGS collection for PS4 when it inevitably happens (MGS1/2/3/4/PW/V).

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I’m gonna just drop this here and walk alway slowly

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

      • No Place For Hayter

        If it included, MG, MG2 ,MG:S ,MGS2 ,MGS3, MGS4, MGS-PW, MGSV-GZ, MGSV-TPP. I would buy the hell out of it.

        But lets not create that pipe dream, you only need to look at the HD collection or the Legacy collection to know how incredibly lazy and cheap Konami is about releasing collections. For the collection to be done right, it would have to be done by someone who cares, and Konami would not put the collection into the hands of someone who does.

        I would love a complete collection (and not the HD versions, I mean the complete complete versions of the games) but that would take a miracle, it would be too good to be true. Konami will cash in on this constantly, but it will be cheap, soulless and not complete, the collections will not be anything we would want, and I wonder if Kojima or KP will even be credited on future collections.

        It is a dream nothing more, while I would buy that collection too, such a collection will never exist. And if it ever does, could I really convince myself to buy it? no credit to Kojima or his team, and sold to me by Konami? That would be a serious internal struggle for me. I would have to find a way of getting a copy for free, lol.

  • Bigbossjack

    Some new info about two possible new locations that we will be visiting in Phantom Pain. If you dont want potential spoilers, dont click.

    http://gamingbolt.com/metal-gear-solid-5-new-locations-possibly-revealed-motherbase-staff-cant-be-given-custom-names

    • I think it’s an error from the gamestop site.

      • Bigbossjack

        Hopefully not, would be cool to go to those locations

        • going to america ? there is two reasons for that : getting naomi and frank jaeger off africa…and training a young soldier in foxhound…..
          but i daydream… i’m sure that the game will only occur in 1984 and, like peace walker, will be a small (but marvelous) story that have no importance.

    • Golgari

      I think this is a major mistake from a Gamestop’s info.

      “through massive open-world environments covering terrain from Cold War Russia to the United States”

      I think Cold War Russia means – “Soviet Union forces in Afghanistan” and some of them in Africa. Same is for the United States that has some bases in Africa.

      They even have a mistake in the Snake’s name ๐Ÿ™

      “Play as Venom Sake (Big Boss)”

      Sake? Really? Come on….

      • Bigbossjack

        Venom Sake is a special item… Lol

      • Mini gear

        and “returning horse back riding” its new though

        • GUNยฎ

          Unless you count that interactable cutscene in PW, but that’s stretching it.

          • Mini gear

            that’s a stretch across all of this games map

    • Sirhumpalotzzz

      It would be amazing to have these locations but I’m content with the two that’s currently confirmed.I’m from south africa and let me tell you……Hideo and his team did one hell of a job on the africa map.Copied extremely well!

          Simple… “money” some retailers (not offical ones) announce they have the game and post the news in the game sites and people rush at the store same thing happened to ground zeroes or pes (very popular in my country)

            I could pay 200usd only for getting the game in 5 days and never regret

          • solideater

            Isn’t the game censored in Saudi Arabia as in the case of Witcher 3??

  • No Place For Hayter

    Recently I have started re-playing through the MGS series, and I have been constantly noticing how perfectly TPP fits into the timeline, everyone is always talking about Big Boss, his dream, Africa, etc, TPP really is closing the circle, in every way. After I replay through the series after playing TPP I will feel like TPP came first due to how much the events and time of TPP are always talked about, lol.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Exactly is like most of the games are One big Phantom of the Past and Tpp is the reality of all

    • Tong Ninja

      TPP will answer a lot of questions that were raised in past MGS games and add further development to the backstory of the characters. ๐Ÿ™‚

      What’s interesting is that we know that Big Boss, Ocelot, Kaz and several others will survive after TPP because we played the past MGS games haha.

      • Ottomansmack

        Thanks bro ๐Ÿ™‚ this site is like outer heaven for mgs fans honestly didn’t expected this kind of great community yeah just like you said its good to see mgs5 doing great but one thing i never understand why xbox fans ignore this great game GZ sold horrible on xbox and now mgs5 didn’t even in the top 100

        • No Place For Hayter

          I think that is because most fans of MGS are already on a Sony console, and would expect or play it on a Sony console, so a far greater amount of people will play it on a Sony console as that is where the fans are and it is where people expect it to be and want it.

          • Ottomansmack

            Agreed last gen i have x360 and ps3 but i always play mgs games on ps3

  • PACOVELI

    Yeah I’ve read this article before I went to sleep. This guy clearly doesn’t know much about mgs in general. I dont think the game will be easy, especially from what we’ve seen so far. I think the difficulty depends on the player and his or her gameplay style. Every gamer can finish a metal gear game. It isn’t that hard. Even after a view fails the game tempts you to retry in a different method or style.
    And that is what I loved about the series
    Everybody has died in mgs and got the legendary game over screen. It is what makes it what it is

    • solideater

      Also the Game Over screen of MGS series are great…. I purposely die to watch game over screens

  • BIG BOSS

    I LOVE BLOOD HAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHA……………

  • H’m

    Hey guys, as you know the wait for all of us has been painful :), and we do what we must as the days go buy, but for me i do abit of editing, fan trailers, game-plays montages etc
    i came forth in ubisofts fan video contest in 2014 ( was pretty happy with that ) but i just wanted to share a snippet of something iv been working on, but when i do my fan edits i go for a more action dramatic look as no one quite does a trailer like kojima but as i said its a very…. snippet scene, and i do hope you like it, cuts, sound, coloring and as been edited etc, and as i only wanted to show this here and its a unlisted vid, so you dont have to comment or rate.

    cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Shiragama

      Looks cool so far. Like ”Vengeance” anyway, so this trailer can’t get bad ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • H’m

        thanx bud

    • Gatsu

      Seems to become really awesome :D, I love fan made trailers ^_^. So far it looked great!
      Gratz for the 4th place btw :).

      • H’m

        cheers :).. hopefully i finish b4 sept 1st

    • JablokoMoloko86

      From fans to Famas… pffff Fans ๐Ÿ˜€ Looking good. Good idea od ading those two scenes ๐Ÿ™‚

      • H’m

        fans to famas..? sorry i dont understand what you mean??

        • JablokoMoloko86

          ??? xd where ?

  • JJBYACH

    I was going to get the game on PS4 but then I decided to watch the 4K trailer (in 4K) they released and I looked at those comparison screenshots, and i booted up Ground Zeroes on my PS4 then played it on my PC and screw it, going with PC.

    So pretty… Not just talking about Quiet.

    Urgh, so bored. I need this game

    • Danny Patten

      So…you got it for Quiet? ๐Ÿ˜€

      • JJBYACH

        Um, nah, I was um, talking about the textures and polygons being showcased better at 4K. Yes.

        • solideater

          Oh really. Can you describe which texture and polygons are you referring to hmmm… ๐Ÿ™‚

          • JJBYACH

            Well, since it is in 4K, there is less aliasing so the textures on Quiet’s face which I was pointing out and everything for example looks more crisp. I guess the compression on the snipping tool I used destroyed the quality of the image more than I anticipated.

        • Danny Patten

          Sure sure. Boob physics, I know that feel.

    • solideater

      You know most probably she’ll gonna die. In every MGS someone you like dies whether is canon or non canon

      • JJBYACH

        Don’t say that!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
        :/
        Yeah, probably.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Also the fact that “Quiet’s Theme” is all somber is a telltale sign that she is going to die, lol.

  • Gatsu

    Replaying FF6 after a long time. Oh maan, great music, story and characters can give such amazing feels and memories. TPP will blow my mind with those ;).

    Can’t wait for FF15 next year and hopefully we get a official release date soon. TPP and FO4 will keep me busy until it release hehe :D.

    • slickrickisbigboss

      yeah the combat in FF15 looks cool and it’ll be nice to have a bright vibrant world after mgsv and bloodborne and dark souls 3 coming out next year

      • Gatsu

        Ooooh yea DS3 too <3, mmmm.

        • solideater

          After MGS V I really like to play a run and gun type of game like Contra and thinking about Contra makes me mad of Konami

    • solideater

      I have never completed any FF. I just loose interest in it and I have completed other franchises like Grandia, Wild Arms, Suikoden, Dragon Quest. Hopefully I’ll be able to complete FF-15.

      • Gatsu

        If you got PS3 or something, you should buy them for cheap from PSN and play them <3. Maybe you like them now if have not in the past. FF6-10 and 12 are all amazing imo.
        But FF8 is the best one to me, love this game very much :D.
        Final Fantasy games also got some of the BEST soundtracks I have ever heard in video games, especially 8 …not bad for a 1999 game. FF and MGS OST ftw!

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDj7aymkUKE

        Also the Boss fight music oooh O_O…

        • gerber

          This track brings back such good memories… even these days I go back to FF7,8,10’s soundtrack on a regular basis. FF8 holds a special place in my heart since it was my first JRPG ever.

          I love Balamb Garden and Fragments of Memories, it instantly takes me back to childhood

          • Gatsu

            Yeah love this song too <3, the memories… I should replay FF8 again in the future some day :D… Some games just never get too old and remain special after many years. FF7 was my first JRPG.

            Balamb Garden song used to be my wake up alarm-song for a long time, a peaceful way to wake up ^^. But after E3 2015 it has been Elegia ;D…lol

          • gerber

            Balamb Garden often helped my study, and Fragments of Memories fall asleep ๐Ÿ™‚

            Since we’re talking about peaceful alarm song to start the day, I love these two:

          • Gatsu

            Awesome :), thanks !
            Good night brothers ;)….

          • No Place For Hayter

            Good night ๐Ÿ™‚

        • kirtanloorii

          Just gonna go ahead and drop this. I’m a big fan of creepiness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYUGCGLG9jM

          And some final boss stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqqNi5_NPe0

        • BlankAzure

          Great to hear about someone else whose favorite Final Fantasy is also VIII
          it is the first one i ever played and the one i find myself replaying the most and it does have amazing music ^-^

    • Andy37649

      Oooh man.. FFVI… Terra…Celes was my favourite. Her story and her background were really touching, especially the scene in which she tries killing herself. That was powerful. FF6 is without a doubt my favourite FF game.

  • Gawd

    Beat MGS3 guys, and now at the beginning of MGS4…and wow I have to say this game is not dated by time … I keep trying to tell myself that it’s not one of my favorite games ever since I’m still on act 1 but I keep finding myself admiring so many little details… With the countdown for MGSV getting so close, I feel like I’ll have to rush through it to get to Peacewalker…but I really really don’t want to…2 hours in and just met up with Rat Patrol

    • Gatsu

      I’m gonna replay 2 and 4, maybe PW if got time during last week and also play GZ super much.

    • Ottomansmack

      Agreed even after 7 years that game looks great still remember first time i reach the act 4 and best is yet to come start playing man that feels….

    • VENOMTIGER

      Playing through peace walker and trying to 100% GZ in time for release! Its not making the timer count down any further! wish i had the phantom cigar fast forward to the 1st!

    • solideater

      I’ll be trying to complete All the MGS parts including MGS Acid in two days as on third day it would be the release date of Phantom Pain.. That is my mission ๐Ÿ™‚

  • NakedSnake85

    Im sick and tired of people saying that Metal Gear has complicated story and the lore is too weird for them to understand it… Like seriously? the only thing someone has to do is casually paying attention to whats happening and to play the games either on chronological order or in release order ! metal gear isnt Cod .. its metal gear !

    • solideater

      If people think MGS story is complicated then Witcher Story would be like like a PHD thesis. To me people get confuse of the story because of all the code names which look alike to them. They mostly interchange Snake and Solid Snake. To explain someone i generally tell them that there are two time lines one is of Snake and one of his son Solid Snake and from there proceed in explaining the lore,

      • Lewis

        Witcher story? What can be complicated there? Read all the books, played all the games.

        • SchmittLenin

          Same, and i still don’t find anything complicated (At least, much less than the super confusing MGS2 storyline…)

          • Lewis

            Well, I never had problems with MGS2 either. At least while playing it. Maybe now I can’t answer every single question, but while playing I was surprised that everyone thought, that MGS2 was complicated.

          • solideater

            Mgs-2 story is fascinating. The story touches many real life scenarios for e.g.
            The Patriots: Wants to create a system that would stop the spread of free speech that the digital age has brought, kind of Police State where every information is monitored and controlled. Now look what is happening in reality.

          • No Place For Hayter

            MGS2 was unintentionally way ahead of its time, lol.

          • Lewis

            Yeah, that’s very disturbing. You can never be sure nowadays, if you can trust the media or not.

        • glitchbomb

          I think that’s exactly the point. Its a long and winding story you “have to go through” to fully understand the experience if the witcher 3. I’ve read 2 if the books and watched story for the first game in preperation for 3 and I still don’t get every refrence or remember every character.

          • Lewis

            I think you should try to read all Witcher books. Not sure, if translation in your country is okay, but what I had was not bad. It is a very long story, and it almost never feels, like separate books, more like one book divided. Every character leaves a trail, every moment is important. Never did regret reading every book. Well, still can’t force myself into reading that new one, that came out in 2013.

      • Rone

        I was going to say, I’m not good with names which is the only thing that made following the plot difficult for me. Every cutscene I would hear and see interesting story being told to me, but force myself to remember the names of the organizations and people attached to different projects. This applies to every game to be honest; even if I could catch them all, there’s no way I’m remembering the name of every single pokemon.

    • GUNยฎ

      Agreed, every time I see a review for a MGS game they always make a dig at it’s “convoluted” plot. It’s like they expect every MGS title to be a standalone game, (outer) heaven forbid it continues the plot from previous games.

    • Gatsu

      I agree 100% :).

    • VenomSnake123

      Well to be honest, I sometimes don’t get the story 100% either but I still love the series. And to be honest, the story isn’t that complicated. All the people who say such shit, probably skip all the cutscenes.

  • solideater

    Guys do you thing MGS V has gone RTM yet?. Can someone tell me the average duration for a game software to go from RTM to GA.

    • GUNยฎ

      Are you asking if it’s gone gold yet?

      • solideater

        Yes. Does anyone have an idea…

        • No Place For Hayter

          I think it went gold a month ago or something, I vaguely remember it popping up, don’t remember exactly though.

          • solideater

            Well i’m regularly checking steam DB and every day 7 to 8 people are playing the game. I think those are testers….

        • GUNยฎ

          Well I don’t think they announced it but it HAS to be at this stage, probably Konami won’t let KojiPro make any announcements about it though.

  • Venom_Sina

    I’m just gonna leave this here:

    • Gatsu

      The most epic music video and song ever created. Definitely deserves to win lot of awards!

      • Venom_Sina

        The final moments that BigBoss rescues Miller…that yellow filter…that was awesome!!!

  • Deuce

    The hype is overpowering!

  • JJBYACH

    Well to help take everyones’ mind of TPP, anyone like to share any unpopular opinions or confessions they have about the metal gear series, like for example I actually liked Johhny in MGS4, not so much as a character but more of an unconventional and odd plot device that was still cringe worthy but nevertheless entertaining and thematically interesting.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I think everyone here knows mine, lol.

      My biggest are, my hate for MGS4 (average game, but terrible story and terrible by MGS standards), my hate for GZ (nothing good here but the graphics gameplay and engine), and my nitpicks with TPP, such as insta alert when a guard sees you, regenerating health, the not so great voice directing and choices being my biggest complaint about TPP because it greatly effects how much I will enjoy/won’t enjoy the story.

      I think that’s it for any unpopular opinions of mine, I think everyone else would agree with anything else I said.

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, i have kind of curbed my expectations for the story of TPP. I think it will deliver on the philosophical plane as seen in Elegia trailer (soo good), but i’m worried if that will compromise the human story of Big Boss dehumanising into a demon, and from the preview articles my skepticism is kinda being reaffirmed, with people saying how what “little” story is there is pretty much incomprehensible (but they probably are not too informed on the MGS lore and probably didn’t listen to the cassette tapes like you are suppose to). Anyway with lower expectations comes bigger surprise? I can’t remember the saying.

        • Ravenous

          Same here, been really worried about TPP’s story-telling all the way since Kojima said that there would be alooooot less cutscenes, and that BB would mostly never say anything to let the characters around him be the ones moving the story forwards;

          my worry and unpopular opinion is that Kojima simply caved to the KIDS who where bitching and whining over the length of MGS cutscenes (especially MGS4’s) due to not having the brains to just skip them if they so desperatly didn’t want to experience the story, and has made a big sacrifice of TPP’s potential for a story-driven experience just to appeal to our so-called experts who do the reviewing of TPP for us the day before release.

          Another really unpopular opinion I have is that I secretely hope that Venom Snake is going to turn out to be BB’s most trusted lieutenant, Gray Fox, taking his place in order to further the cause while BB is in the one single coma Kojima has stated that BB suffers in his life…just so I can watch all the bitter nay-sayers having to eat their words about body-double theories XD

          • NakedSnake85

            Besides what Python Selkan is saying what makes you believe that Gray Fox is venom Snake? You played GZ right? what connection can u make GZ-PHANTOM PAIN -GRAY FOX. if there is going to be a body double then it has to be the Medic. Isnt it obvious?

          • Ravenous

            And if it is the Medic, who’s to say he isn’t Gray Fox?
            Look guys, I’m not saying that there has to be a double of any kind, just saying it would be hilarious to watch comments on youtube, forums and other fan-sites if it actually turns out to be a double ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Ravenous

            Well, first of all, Venom ‘Punished’ Snake is a couriously evil-looking character in most of the promo-art we’ve seen so far, does that match up with the Naked Snake/Big Boss we knew from MGS3 and PW?
            Nope, not IMHO atleast. According to Liquid in MGS1, BB was in a coma because he was wounded in combat when “they” got the Les Infants Terrible project started somewhere between ’70 and ’74. And according to the doctors in the post-credits of GZ he survives, but ends up in a coma…again, while according to Kojima when asked by Geoff Keighley (spelling?), Big Boss is only ever in one coma and it’ll all become clear to us what exactly happens when we play TPP.

            So you tell me, has Kojima painted himself into a corner and made his very own TIME PARADOX, or is something not really making sense here?

            IMHO I would’nt mind at all if Venom turns out to be a pawn for Zero to destroy BB’s legacy as a legendary soldier and hero, to try to coerce BB into joining The Patriots, and I can’t wrap my head around why so many have an issue with that possibility ๐Ÿ™‚

            And as always, not saying that body-double is a proven fact in any way, but there is a chance, and that could actually make more sense to me than the whole good-bad-good BB does from MGS3 untill his death in MGS4 ๐Ÿ™‚

            If Kojima has been retconning to make TPP fit in the official timeline, then fine, but if we take Liquids monologue about the cloning as canon, then BB shouldn’t end up in a coma at all between PW and MG2, so who the hell wakes up from a nine-year coma with the head-transplant lookalike? XD

          • No Place For Hayter

            The last time Kojima kind of caved in and gave people exactly what they wanted we got MGS4, and the last thing I need is another one of those, lol.

            I wouldn’t be so quick to call everyone a bitter nay-sayer, I don’t believe it either, but simply because it is absurd and holds zero water, there is literally not a single point for Venom Snake being Gray Fox. There is enough out there to form a theory of a body double yes (I don’t believe any, but they hold water) but said body double being gray fox is ridiculous. I’m not bitter, just calling it as I see it. I also personally wouldn’t wish for the story to be ruined just for the entertainment of upsetting a few people, they emotions will be short lived but the game is forever.

          • Ravenous

            I’m not saying that all the nay-sayers are bitter, not going to mention any names since they probably know who they are ๐Ÿ˜›

            The reason I believe that Gray Fox could possibly be a body-double is simply based on Portable Ops actually, the whole reset-tank they put him in to blank his memory and sharpen his senses after every mission he completes makes him a perfect candidate for molding him into a double for Big Boss, incredible skill in combat, stealthy sneaky bastard who was ‘The only one to ever be awarded the codename Fox’, and the fact that he was BB’s most trusted leuitenant according to Campbell in MGS1…But we still haven’t seen Gray Fox do anything that makes him qualify for that.

            Gray Fox is a possibility IMHO because Kojima himself stated, when interviewed by Geoff Keighley in ’13 or ’14, that Big Boss is only ever in one coma, and according to Liquid Snake in MGS1: the Les Enfants Terribles project started when “They”, meaning the Patriots, got a hold of samples of Big Boss’ DNA because he was wounded in combat and already in a coma.
            As we all know, there is a tape of a conversation between Kaz and someone about the LET’s success after the end of PW’s story, so if Liquids monologue from MGS1 is canon…doesn’t that mean that whoever wakes up from the nine year coma in the TPP-trailers cannot possibly be Big Boss, and whoever it is is therefor either a body-double to further Kaz and Ocelot’s cause OR a pawn placed there by Cipher, possibly to ruin Big Boss’ reputation as a legendary soldier and hero by commiting war-crimes and all the other horrible shit Big Boss is supposed to have done.

            So either Kojima is doing major retcons of the established canon, or we are missing vital parts of the story that makes all of this possible ๐Ÿ™‚

      • GUNยฎ

        I’m curious, what bothers you about the regenerating health? Is it a nostalgia thing? And now that I think of it, MGS3 and 4 had regenerating health too, much slower of course but still, not new.

        • No Place For Hayter

          The regenerating health in the other games is nowhere near the same concept. TPP has regenerating health, where as the other games had additional hidden means of regenerating health, you cannot compare the two, they are different beasts all together. Some one else put my thoughts best, let me see if I can find it again, brb. Back ๐Ÿ™‚ here it is

          “Health management is A MUST for open world games. The regenerative health needs to go.

          While I do believe regenerative health can be on the best interest of
          some experiences, there are many reasons why it definitely did not
          resonate well with MGSV. Some reasons for that:

          a) It makes exploration less rewarding. And open-ended games are all
          about rewarding exploration. No health recovery items to look for = less
          motives to go for different routes and look for stuff.

          b) It lessens the importance of encounters and fights. You know there
          are no penalties for being discovered or getting into fights. As long
          as you don’t die, nothing is lost.

          c) It reduces strategic thinking. You don’t ever calculate if risking
          a busier approach is “worth it” from a resource standpoint or not.
          Soldiers drop ammo, so there’s no ammo shortage if you decide to take
          them head-on. Health regenerates itself, so you don’t care about getting
          shot either, because nothing is wasted.

          d) It’s not very realistic. Not that MGS or eating reations to
          recover life was ever realistic, but this game seems to be trying very
          hard to make things more realistic than usual. A good place to look for
          when it comes to health management and health recovery items would be
          The Last of Us, especially on harder difficulties (applying bandages to
          the injured body part, health recovers over time). Not exactly the most
          realistic thing ever, but better than most and works well enough to not
          break the suspension of disbelief for most playrs.

          e) It can make the flow of gameplay very weird. Just for funs and
          testing, I manage to trade fire with a tank for a good 30 minutes by
          just using the ability to regenerate health. I got shot by the tank
          probably hundreds of times with no consequences whatsoever. Having a
          cover spot nearby made me near invincible. As long as I waited a little
          bit for the health to regenerate, there were no consequences whatsoever.

          Now, I’m not saying regenerable health necessarily makes the game
          “easier”. It depends on the situation. The fact that you can’t stack a
          lot of health regeneration items and make them heal you automatically
          like previous games does make some firefights you can’t escape from
          harder.

          But for fights to matter, there has to be a lasting, meaningful
          consequence. That’s what open games are all about: multiple choices and
          multiple outcomes. The choices have consequences. Permanently losing
          health recovery items because you got into fights is a meaningful
          consequence, which is why the majority of open games have health bars
          and health recovery items.”

          • nyx

            Nevertheless, Phantom pain has both regenerating health and health management which concerns dealing with more severe injuries.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Isn’t it just a bottom prompt? a bottom prompt for severe injuries does not constitute as “health management”. Just like the regenerating health it is free, infinite, and you only need to find cover.

          • nyx

            Ok, “Health management” may be a wrong expression. My point is that your post about regenerating health doesn’t apply to Phantom pain because of consequences, stemming from injuries.

          • No Place For Hayter

            TPP has regenerating health, that is a fact, just because it has additional prompts for severe injuries does not change the fact that the system of health is a health regenerating system, and it does not change any of the points presented, if you think it changes any of the faults presented about such a system, please point them out and explain them, as I do not see this changing how broken the regenerating health is.

            Also as I have mentioned this is an unpopular opinion of mine, a lot of people will disagree. But honestly I cannot see why anybody would defend such a terrible game design choice. I point out faults with it and the best anyone else can do it “these don’t apply because of reason A” they don’t say anything about my points being wrong, and nobody ever presents reasons as to why it is a good game design choice, they simply take side swipes at my points without creating a side to defend in the first place, what are they defending? they have not presented or said a single thing in favour of said system, but the moment anyone has a problem with it they attack it with hollow logic, and pointless reasons to render what I’m saying obsolete instead of addressing the points or simply excepting just maybe it was a bad idea to use regenerating health. You cannot generalize discussions or points about specific faults or errors, because if you generalize it you don’t look at the specific points at hand which is what the discussion is about.

          • nyx

            Ok, but please take in the consideration, that in my timezone is about 3 AM so my reasoning skills probably wont be at their prime :). TPP has regenerating health, no doubt about it (as MGS3 and MGS4 had regardless deeper system behind it, health was always regenerating however low stamina or psyche condition meter was). While this term can certainly be used for system used in Phantom pain, it’s principles and game implications differ from “regenerating health” concept you wrote about.
            As for points in your previous post –
            A) exploration argument is not valid because of base support. No need to explore for health item when you can summon them via radio.
            B) Valid under condition that health items must be limited otherwise there is not much difference between one button prompt and for example triple button push to open inventory and apply bandage or something. That is Last of us is good argument but for example MGS3 system and PP system are in fact the same.
            C) Not fully apply because of aforementioned base support system. PP is not a survival game, limited health items don’t make much sense in the context. However strategic thinking is still necessary in another dimension which is punishment for injury. For example when your legs are mangled you wont be able to run which increase enemy’s chance to finish you off, unless you hide with enough time to get yourself together. This guarantee that you have to be cautious and consider your approach well.
            D) Not valid at all. Phantom pain’s system is much more realistic that one used in TLOU where your character’s possibillities remain the same regardles taken damage. You can always run, shoot or do anything with same effectivity.
            E) Validity is highly debatable. Described situation most probably wont be possible in PP as shot from a tank will most likely leave you crippled and you won’t have enought time to heal before next shot hits you.

            Therefore I stand my ground that your points mostly don’t apply to PP (some fully, some can be valid under certain conditions) albeit I’am sorry that I didn’t elaborate on it before as it made my opinion seem groundless.

          • No Place For Hayter

            “A) exploration argument is not valid because of base support. No need to
            explore for health items when you can summon them via radio.
            Exploration will be surely rewarding enough as there will be tons of
            limited stuff to collect (resources, equipment, herbs, animals etc.).”

            Yes and that costs money, the problem lies in free health regeneration, calling in supplies would cost you time and money and thus would be a reason to not be careless, if someone were able to find a ration lying around it would feel great as they would not have to waste their time and money calling in some more rations because they are low. And yes exploring will be worth while anyway, but not having healing items to find does lower the want/need to explore, right now the only people whom want to explore will be those whom really want to, a player whom only wants to rush through the mission or story will not explore, but having essential items such as healing items encourages not exploring players to keep a larger eye open for such things as even though they will not explore they still would like to have items that would help them immediately.

            “B) Valid under condition that health items are limited otherwise there
            is not much difference between one button prompt and for example triple
            button push to open inventory and apply bandage or something. That is
            Last of us is good argument but for example MGS3’s system and PP’s
            system are in fact the same.”

            Health items are limited, even in MGS3 you had to find the medical supplies that healed you of your injuries, you had to find the rations you are using. The problem being is that health regeneration and bottom prompts are free, and are infinite, you lose nothing, But if you have to use supplies to use you would lose something, nad then if you need more you would have to waste time and money to call in more.

            “C) Not fully apply because of aforementioned base support system. PP is
            not a survival game, limited health items don’t make much sense in the
            context. However strategic thinking is still necessary in another
            dimension which is punishment for injury. For example when your legs are
            mangled you wont be able to run which increase enemy’s chance to finish
            you off, unless you hide with enough time to get yourself together.
            This guarantee that you have to be cautious and consider your approach
            well.”

            Agreed, it does not fully apply, but it still effects the system and the way to think and use it, it effects your choices quite a lot, for example I would avoid combat more because I know mid combat I would not be easily able to call in a support box with supplies collect and use them, matter of fact I would never even try to do that as I might die just trying to call it in, where as with TPP healing system i only need a few seconds behind cover and I’m good to go, nothing lost, and nothing to worry about as I don’t need more healing items because the next one is free as well. I also don’t need to pull up the android and thus there is no real danger if dying in those few seconds because I can still watch the battle field.

            “D) Not valid at all. Phantom pain’s system is much more realistic that
            one used in TLOU where your character’s possibillities remain the same
            regardles taken damage. You can always run, shoot or do anything with
            the same effectivity.”

            Agreed the one used in TLoU isn’t very realistic (not the example I would have used), the example of an immersive and realistic healing system would be MGS3’s healing system. And TPP’s healing system is completely unrealistic, what is realistic about super healing? I got shot, it’s ok though it will be by itself as long as I don’t get shot again soon because that stops my super healing. that is stupid and ridiculous. The severe injury system in TPP is realistic, NOT the regenerating health, the regenerating health is incredibly unrealistic, it is more realistic to have to eat a ration to heal yourself as that still applies to basic logic of “You get hurt you have to use knowledge and resources to heal your wound before you die or bleed out” where as TPP ignores basic logic and goes with “You get hurt, you will heal all by yourself” In real life you get stabbed with a knife or shot with a gun you have to get medical attention, your body can’t heal that by itself, you need knowledge and resources (medical supplies) to heal/repair yourself.

            “E) Validity is highly debatable. Described situation most probably wont
            be possible in PP as shot from a tank will most likely leave you
            crippled and you won’t have enough time to heal and/or run away before
            next shot hits you.”

            Yeah, this point is shaky due to it being from GZ. As much as I would love to talk about this point, we honestly don’t know how it would roll in TPP. But what I can say is that you can stay in a firefight for as long as you please in TPP, no matter how long the fight you will never have to worry about your health at all, and that is a problem, you seriously have to consider if you will be able to make it through the firefight or not, TPP is all about thinking big and strategically, and yet its own health system reduces the combat thinking to “where is the nearest cover so I can get my health to regenerate?” you don’t think about how long you have left, or how much you can heal, or if you are going to die.

            “Therefore I stand my ground that your points mostly don’t apply to PP
            (some fully, some can be valid under certain conditions) albeit I’am
            sorry that I didn’t elaborate on it before as it made my opinion seem
            groundless.”

            It’s ok, any problem that could have been had with what you said before is gone with this comment of yours, lol. Even after all of that, this is simply what I hate about the system a lot of people will simply play the game with the system without a second thought as it does not bother them, but it does bother me, and that is why I’m pointing it all out. All I see out of the system is negative outcomes, not a single good thing comes from using health regeneration. Don’t get me wrong the injury system in TPP is great, and makes it realistic and fun to deal with injuries in combat without having to scroll through a huge menu when Big Boss knows how to do it anyway, my problems lie solely with the health regeneration portion of the health system.

          • nyx

            Ok, I have no problem with your reasoning. I take it that only point where our opinions really differ is case of MGS3/MGS4 health system which I consider as free regenerating and you don’t. My opinion is based on a fact (if I recollect right) that health was practically always regenerating however in slower (and in case stamina/psyche was low) in extremely slower rate. Getting food in MGS3 was not challenge as animals/food was everywhere and hunting was really easy. MGS4 was even worse since I didnลฅ pay attention to snake’s psyche at all and he always regenerated anyway.

            As for point “D” – realism – I can describe my ideal health system for PP. I would prefer (since food and psyche systems are missing but one can assume that Snake is not hungry when he goes to a mission and his psyche is OK) very slow regeneration and limited health sprays/med packs for rapid healing. As far as I know this eventuality could be still included since infinity health spray was not confirmed and health regeneration on higher difficulty could be slow enough).

            With that all being said I understand your point of view and logic behind it.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, as much as I want to discuss and dislike the health system in TPP, I personally don’t know how it will work or feel in TPP itself, lol.

            I guess with the way you see the health in MGS3/4 my point would be about the “main” part of the health system, as the health regeneration is not relied heavily upon by players, instead they only think about the healing items, so I guess I’m referring to only the primary function and aspect of the health system.

            I would probably still complain about your ideal health system (lol) but it is a nice balance, and it could turn out to be more like that as far as the med sprays go, but I see what you mean and what you prefer ๐Ÿ™‚

            God, yeah, we are from all over the place in MGI, lol.

          • GUNยฎ

            I’d like to offer a counter argument

            “TPP has regenerating health, where as the other games had additional hidden means of regenerating health, they were a hidden addition not the whole system, you cannot compare the two, they are different beasts all together.”

            From memory, there was nothing hidden about MGS3/4’s health regen, as long as you were not running or too stressed out, your health would regenerate. It was a more complex system than MGSV but health regen is health regen, at the end of the day it’s just a quicker version in MGSV because changes need to be made when going from linear older titles to a huge open world.

            A) “It makes exploration less rewarding. And open-ended games are all
            about rewarding exploration. No health recovery items to look for = less
            motives to go for different routes and look for stuff.”

            I think this is pretty silly, MGSV adds diamonds/blueprints/materials scattered throughout the world which are much more interesting reasons to explore than just health items IMO.

            “b) It lessens the importance of encounters and fights. You know there
            are no penalties for being discovered or getting into fights. As long
            as you don’t die, nothing is lost.”

            I don’t agree with this one at all as you don’t have health items to rely on in these situations. It balances out that way if you ask me.

            “c) It reduces strategic thinking. You don’t ever calculate if risking
            a busier approach is “worth it” from a resource standpoint or not.
            Soldiers drop ammo, so there’s no ammo shortage if you decide to take
            them head-on. Health regenerates itself, so you don’t care about getting
            shot either, because nothing is wasted.”

            I think we can all agree that MGS V invites more strategic thinking than any other MGS title. I can tell you that I went into encounters in MGS4 feeling confident because I had rations and pot noodles or whatever to keep me alive but in MGSV I don’t have these things and health regeneration won’t help me unless I can escape from the hairy situation.

            “d) It’s not very realistic. Not that MGS or eating reations to
            recover life was ever realistic, but this game seems to be trying very
            hard to make things more realistic than usual. A good place to look for
            when it comes to health management and health recovery items would be
            The Last of Us, especially on harder difficulties (applying bandages to
            the injured body part, health recovers over time). Not exactly the most
            realistic thing ever, but better than most and works well enough to not
            break the suspension of disbelief for most playrs.”

            Again, I find this a weak point, the iDroid, the fultons/wormholes, Metal Gears, supernatural elements, advanced prosthetic arms that can do crazy things etc etc etc. I don’t think Phantom Pain is aiming for realism in anything other than visuals. Also TLoU is no more realistic, firstly the bandage isn’t applied to the wound, it’s wrapped around the arm every time. If anything, health regeneration is more realistic than using items/eating seeing as wounds do heal by themselves, at a much slower rate of course but still.

            “e) It can make the flow of gameplay very weird. Just for funs and
            testing, I manage to trade fire with a tank for a good 30 minutes by
            just using the ability to regenerate health. I got shot by the tank
            probably hundreds of times with no consequences whatsoever. Having a
            cover spot nearby made me near invincible. As long as I waited a little
            bit for the health to regenerate, there were no consequences whatsoever.”

            The key phrase here is ‘just for fun testing’, this isn’t something that’d occur unless you choose to make it occur. In Ground Zeroes I experienced no weird flows in gameplay.

            And finally:

            “Permanently losing health recovery items because you got into fights is a meaningful consequence,”

            I don’t believe it is and now that I think about it, having recently replayed MGS1, if you die, you go back to the state you were in before you entered the fight so all your health items return. I can’t remember if this is true in 2/3/4 but I think it is. Not that health items were ever hard to come by in the first place.

            Also, you have to remember that KojiPro are well aware that you have regenerating health and will balance that out.

            Personally I’ll miss seeing the old health bar up in the top left corner but that’s just a nostalgia thing for me more than anything. Anyway, sorry for the essay, I don’t mean to say you’re wrong for believing that I just wanted to put up a counter argument and see what you think.

          • No Place For Hayter

            No it’s totally cool, I like essay long comments, lol, considering I’m about to write one myself >.>

            “From memory, there was nothing hidden about MGS3/4’s health regen, as
            long as you were not running or too stressed out, your health would
            regenerate. It was a more complex system than MGSV but health regen is
            health regen, at the end of the day it’s just a quicker version in MGSV
            because changes need to be made when going from linear older titles to a
            huge open world.”

            The health regen in older MGS games were not “health regeneration” as it is known in the industry now. The health regen in the older MGS games were hidden, you either had to find a hidden frequency on the radio (which could not be used infinitely btw) or hidden as an ipod song which had to be played while lying down, they were hard to find and out of the way, and were s very small addition to the health system, so small in fact that they are not even a part of the health system itself, the health system in older games had a health bar and items to replenish the bar, that system did not include health regeneration. TPP health system is a health regeneration system. As a metaphor thing, the past MGS games were a white screen with a dot or two of black on it (the black dots being the hidden health regen) while TPP is an entirely black screen, just because there is a dot or two of black in the old games does not mean they are the same “OMG look there is black here to big deal!” that is ridiculous and has nothing to do with what I’m saying, the past games health system did not include and were not about health regeneration, it was a hidden function not apart of the health system itself and thus not apart of comparing the two health systems.

            “I think this is pretty silly, MGSV adds diamonds/blueprints/materials
            scattered throughout the world which are much more interesting reasons
            to explore than just health items IMO.”

            Yes this point is small, but you missed what it said. He did not say it removes any point of exploring, he said it “less rewarding” he did not say it removes rewards, it just makes it less rewarding. Also it isn’t silly, it is a valid point that makes sense,silly is a bad word to use, I take what people say more seriously than “silly”.

            “I don’t agree with this one at all as you don’t have health items to
            rely on in these situations. It balances out that way if you ask me.”

            I think you missed the point here. He is saying something like this.
            Situation A: You get spotted have a large gunfight, run away and hide, your health lost regenerates and thus you move on, nothing lost, nothing gained. From this situation the fights and encounters are less important because you have lost nothing in game.
            Situation B: You get spotted have a large gunfight run away and hide, you use a ration to heal the health you have lost in said fight, something lost, nothing gained. This situation inspires a more stealthy approach as you will lose a healing item if you are spotted because the damage you take from the ensuing combat won’t heal by itself.

            “I think we can all agree that MGS V invites more strategic thinking than
            any other MGS title. I can tell you that I went into encounters in MGS4
            feeling confident because I had rations and pot noodles or whatever to
            keep me alive but in MGSV I don’t have these things and health
            regeneration won’t help me unless I can escape from the hairy situation.”

            Again, he isn’t saying that this system REMOVES strategic thinking, he said it REDUCES strategic thinking, which it does, because you have less to take into consideration as far as how you are going to survive or pull off your plan at all. The regenerating health system, only reduces the quality and importance of certain aspects of the game, it sure does not improve them, but it certainly reduces them. Also in TPP all you need it cover, you don’t have to escape combat for your health to regen.

            “Again, I find this a weak point, the iDroid, the fultons/wormholes,
            Metal Gears, supernatural elements, advanced prosthetic arms that can do
            crazy things etc etc etc. I don’t think Phantom Pain is aiming for

            arm every time. If anything, health regeneration is more realistic than
            using items/eating seeing as wounds do heal by themselves, at a much
            slower rate of course but still.”

            Kojima has himself said the health regeneration system is in place for immersion and realism. And yes I agree about TLoU, it is a bad example on his part, I personally would use MGS3 as an immersive and realistic health system. “health regeneration is more realistic than
            using items/eating seeing as wounds do heal by themselves, at a much
            slower rate of course but still.” What is more realistic, actually having to deal with your wounds with an outside source (eating a ration) or having it heal by itself like you are super human? and no you don’t heal by yourself at a slow rate, if it was a born or a cut maybe, we are talking about knife and bullet wounds here, if you don’t heal said wound with outside resources and knowledge, you will bleed out and die, most wounds you can’t heal from by yourself, and it is incredibly unrealistic. So what is more realistic, I got shot, I have to go and heal this with something! or, I got shot, it is ok though it will heal itself in a moment as long as I don’t get shot again, because that pauses my super healing.

            “The key phrase here is ‘just for fun testing’, this isn’t something
            that’d occur unless you choose to make it occur. In Ground Zeroes I
            experienced no weird flows in gameplay.”

            The point he was making here, is the fact it can happen, normally one runs out of ways to heal oneself and the players have to balance their firefights and encounters so they do not end up in a situation where they are left with no way to heal, but with health regen, you don’t ever have to worry about that and can stay in a firefight forever taking a seriously unrealistic amount on damage and wounds without worry as it does not cost anything to heal.

            “I don’t believe it is and now that I think about it, having recently
            replayed MGS1, if you die, you go back to the state you were in before
            you entered the fight so all your health items return. I can’t remember
            if this is true in 2/3/4 but I think it is. Not that health items were
            ever hard to come by in the first place.”

            You are right, here this point does not apply to the earlier MGS games, because you would die. But this point is for TPP, an open world game, where you will be spotted far more often and you will escape far more often instead of simply dying unless you do something really stupid. And thus for TPP this point matters greatly but is none existent because of the health regeneration system. But this point does not matter as much for the older games, as this point is not about the older games it is about the open world TPP.

            “Also, you have to remember that KojiPro are well aware that you have regenerating health and will balance that out.”

            It isn’t about balance, I have no doubt KP will indeed make it balanced, my point and hate for it stems from how bad of an idea Health Regeneration is for TPP. If you really want to make a point list some reasons as to why it is a good idea to have health regeneration, because it only lessons the experience, and does not help in anyway.

            With all that being said, having the health regeneration hurts my experience and joy with the game greatly, but many other people won’t even give it a second thought, to them it is not a bad thing at all, and that it fine, it doesn’t have to be a problem for everyone, it is just a problem for me.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah.I think health regeneration DOES effect the game,making it so much easier.Health regeneration system reduces the challenge.All we need to do is find cover and there you go,your health is at maximum!!!

        MGS4 is by far the worst metal gear game to date storywise.
        it had its moments like the concept of Old Snake the return in shadow moses and the presence of big boss in general… but when you are going to bring back big boss u dont do this and simply kill him again in 30 minutes.. also NO VILLAIN? And no liquid Ocelot was not a villain..What a stupid idea that was.. LIQUID-OCELOT.. omg.. Aw man my hate for mgs4s story is of the vharts

        • Connor Nelson

          metal gear PW is the worst story wise, mgs4 suffers from having to choose from either leaving some things up in the air, and displease fans, or make the game plot dense and alienate newcomers (and displease fans) considering i was 13 when i first played it. The game has many villains, zero and liquid ocelot being the main two, Liquid ocelot is called a villain on his bio on the metal gear wiki and i tend to agree.

    • GUNยฎ

      Mmmm, lemme see.

      One thing that always bothered me about MGS1 is how the FOXHOUND unit battle Snake despite knowing he needs to live in order for their plan to work, essentially making them all suicidal. Did I beat those bosses fair and square or did they go easy on me because I NEEDED to win to complete their goals (same issue I have with the fight against The Boss though not as much).

      Also I thought Raiden was more of a pussy in MGS4 than in MGS2 despite everyone else seeming to think he was a badass thanks to becoming a cyborg. In fact, MGS4 makes me cringe harder than any other MGS title, there’s just so much cheese such as Meryl/Johnny or Otacon/Naomi. But aside from the cheese I find it to be flawless, possibly the most polished game I have ever played to this day and I’m amazed at how well Kojima managed to tie up so many loose ends.

      I also think ‘nanomachines’ as an excuse for stuff is perfectly fine seeing as it’s not like they came out of nowhere, we’ve known about them for ages and they’re always talked about. Nanos seem to bother other people.

      Also I don’t buy Solid Snake and Otacon as best pals, it just doesn’t work for me. Otacon is too much of a pussy and while I’m talking about Otacon, I’m not overly fond of Kojima bring Huey into the Big Boss arc, it’s just too much coincidence for me.

      Let’s see, what else…oh a couple of recent ones. I like the wormhole fulton and the rocket arm.

      That’s all for now.

      • JJBYACH

        The more I think about it MGS4 seemed more like Kojima writing fan fiction for his own series which I don’t find a bad thing, I just find it weird, and it’s why I love Kojima. But the Otacon/Naomi romance was unbelievably cringe worthy…

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Here are my (most likely) unpopular opinions:

      1. Peace walker got extremely annoying with all of the metal gear battles. Once I figured out that metal gear ZE KE was only going to be stolen and I had to fight against it in the main campaign I stopped playing the game.

      2. Most of the sexual stuff is quite annoying to me. Especially the beauties from Mgs4. What kind of Villain is that?

      3. Confession: I don’t really understand a lot of the plot because it is been a long time since I’ve played some of the games. But hey the games are very fine so what the heck

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, one of my few complaints with PW is that there are far to many vehicle battles, WAY TO MANY! normally one could ignore them and finish the story, but chapter 5 is a grind of extra ops which forces the player to play a bunch of vehicle missions to finish the story.

        And yeah the Beauties in MGS4 were way to sexualized.

        • Steven Michael Brown

          The metal gear battles are my least favorite part of the series

    • BlankAzure

      I really like Metal Gear Solid 2 and playing as Raiden.
      And tho I really enjoy MGS3, but it is not my favorite…
      From what I understand about the internet this is a very unpopular opinion.
      And I also really like MGS4 too and don’t have a problem with it, (except otacon and Naomi’s sorta relationship thing) but apparently not a lot of people like MGS2 or MGS4 or Pre-cyborg Raiden so that what I got, but I really enjoy all of Metal Gear and I don’t really have anything in particular about any of them that I actually flat out hate.
      I also enjoyed having Johnny in MS4, as for a confession as a straight guy who enjoys Metal Gear and seeing the Johnny face reveal for the first time, my honest reaction was oh my god he is hot….
      Well thats all I got for unpopular opinions and confessions about the Metal Gear Series.

    • Robin Besch

      well i have to admit i didnt enjoy peace walker ..
      and really loved mgs4. mostly i hear from ppl its the other way around.
      oh and i enjoyed playing through mg rising.. have to add tho i never saw it as a metal gear title so i went in with low expectations and got surprised.

    • Fritillary

      I still own and play Metal Gear Acid regularly.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Let’s start.

      The acting from MGS1’s ending is cringeworthy, they way they keep repeating “good” and “fine” is just annoying.

      For me Ocelot is the main character of this series, is about him!

      The Boss is the perfect example of what you get when you care more about the others than yoursel, and why you shouldn’t be like her ( she is still my fave character)

      Huey working with Big Boss us too coincidental, since Hall never mentioned to Solid that his father worked for Big Boss.

      I believe that the “anime cliche” MGS has are put on purpose to show the wrong things with Anime, and you can see that in P.T. nothing from P.T. is even close to Anime Clichรฉs.

      Last but not least, i love Skull Face as an Anti-Villain, and hope he doesn’t die, all he did was execute orders from Cipher (Attack MSF) and hunt Cipher, so I hope Snake and Skull Face find Cipher and put him in Comma as well!

    • Venom_Sina

      1.That love thing Otacon had in every game is really annoying.
      The first one was in MGS1.He fell in love with Sniper Wolf,but Snake killed her.On that scene, I was like:oh,that’s a sad thing!!!The same happened in MGS2 with EE,and me like:oooooooooookkkkkkaaaaaayyyyyy!!!And again in MGS4……….I mean,come on!!!How the hell is this possible!!!And that’s not all,the same thing happened to Huey,too!!!Oh,man.I think this heart-breaking thing is genetic!!!
      2.I really love MGS3,but I have some problems with The Boss.She was going to sacrifice herself for her country and complete her mission,right?and to do that,she must be killed by her last deciple,Jack.The question is:why they fought in the ending of MGS3?She should’ve told Jack about her mission,and let him to kill her easily!!!The final fight between the two…really doesn’t make sense to me.
      But,other than that,it’s Metal Gear.Let’s enjoy it!!!

    Soo excited for the phantom pain and always was a big fan of Metal Gear solid. Hope to see Solid snake and grey Fox somewhere in the game

    • No Place For Hayter

      WELCOME! SHARE THE EXCITEMENT COMRADE! ( ‘ ‘ )7

      After playing MG:S again I’m willing to bet quite a lot that we will see Gray Fox in TPP, not sure if we will see Solid.

    • gerber

      I am really hoping to see Gray Fox as well. Not only because he is supposed to have a major role (the most trusted lieutenant) but he is my favorite character since MGS1. I remember how excited I was to buy VR missions just to play those 3 little missions with Cyborg Ninja ๐Ÿ˜€

  • FOX hound

    And also I love this site

  • Ottomansmack
  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    I share with you guys this Picture : I went to Buenos aires Konami event . They didn’t show one bit of respect to Kojima and K.P. The whole event was for their Football game Pes 2016 . They didn’t show Elegia trailer ; no Demo and They state konami has made what metal gear is today .. I couldn’t resist to scream the name of Kojima san and many people looked bad at me . My soul and my childhood will never died but Revenge is the only thing that comes in to my mind. Love this community . Long live Metal Gear Solid !!!!

    • Gatsu

      Long live MGS made by Kojima and Koji Pro!

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        You guys are like brothers in arms and we shall see our faces in outer heaven !

        • SpiderJerusalem

          I also attended that Buenos Aires event (I live in Buenos Aires) and couldn’t believe the presentation they gave, it was like they where trying to sell some random stuff without knowing what was all about. The host was speaking like “There’s multiplayer and over here is that wolf you can carry with you”. No respect for Kojima like Joaquin says, shameless.

    • ddmaster

      KOJIMA! KOJIMA! KOJIMA!

    • No Place For Hayter

      So you sort of called them on the bullshit they said? dude that is AWESOME!

  • GUNยฎ

    Let’s play a game; describe your own prosthetic arm for Big Boss along with it’s own unique ability and colour scheme. Must be different from the 4 we already know about.

    I’ll start:

    Vapor Arm – This arm would allow BB to spray a soldier with a tranquilizing vapor which takes effect instantly. When fully loaded it has the ability to create a room-sized cloud of vapour that can put anyone in it to sleep, including BB if he’s not wearing his gas mask, however this fully depletes the arm’s vapor ammo.

    Colour- White with some green detailing.

    • kirtanloorii

      Here’s one.

      Submersible Arm – Designed to work underwater. It has tiny deploy-able propellers that pull BB while underwater. He would look like superman while travelling underwater. This way, we can actually have an underwater mechanic.

      Color- Dark blue with light blue details.

      • GUNยฎ

        Ha! Love it.

    • Robin Besch

      Crossbow Arm – An arm made from carbon fiber so its easier and quicker to handle. The retractable crossbow can fire various kinds of darts lethal and non-lethal. Iat also features a scope for medium range shots.

      Colour – Matt black with dark grey markings

      • GUNยฎ

        That’d be pretty cool.

    • MichaelPayneV

      T-1000 – Liquid Metal, being able to shape in any form

      Nuff said!

      • Robin Besch

        guess you won xD

      • GUNยฎ

        That’d be sweet.

    • Mini gear

      banana arm! can launch a slippery banana on the floor! would be bright yellow(maybe add PW letters on arm for refrence ๐Ÿ™‚

      • GUNยฎ

        I want it.

    • Ravenous

      Cannon arm
      A simple mechanism added to the wrist of the arm allows the hand to be folded to the side and expose the 40mm barrel of grenadelauncher or just a cannon like Gray Fox uses in the fight against MG Rex XD
      color would have to be matte black or gunmetal gray.

      Knife arm
      Retractable blade fitted to either the outside or inside or the arm for some serious nodding to Assassins Creed and quick’n silent lethals.
      Color should be leathery brown with metallic details to reflect Altair’s hidden blade

    • Fritillary

      Hack arm.
      The four main digits on the hand would split into eight or into various size jacks to either hack into enemy radar/comminication systems. And when charged could fire a small EMP to knock out lights and radios in the area for a brief moment.

      Color.
      Black with neon green highlights in circuitry patterns, and a battery decal on the back of the hand.

      • GUNยฎ

        This one is great, I especially love the EMP function.

    • solideater

      Gear Arm:
      The Key for Activating and Controlling the Metal Gear.

      Color:
      Dark Blue With White Glowing Stripes

      • GUNยฎ

        Y’know that actually sounds like something they might do to prevent another Paz situation.

    • Liquid Arm
      As a fan base joke you can have liquids arm attachment like ocelot MGS2 haha and start speaking like Liquid Ocelot.

      • No Place For Hayter

        BROTHER! that would be an AMAZING ARM!

      • GUNยฎ

        YES!

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        But in terms of Liquid Ocelot, would you have Pat Zimmerman or Cam Clarke doing the voice over?

        • Of course Pat Zimmerman. They could just use MGS4 audio files again and I’d be happy. If they have wormholes, why not a time travelling arm.

    • Connor Nelson

      High 5. Its hooked up to your nerves and when you use it your stress meter disappears but you cant run.

      Color. A dull white with a small but visible Rx or red on white with an Rx

      • GUNยฎ

        Mmm, will we have a stress meter in MGSV?

    • SNKtheStampede

      Let’s see…

      Suppressor Arm: Snake tighten is bionic fist than shoot through it with his gun and it works as emergency suppressor. Color: transaparent.

      Club Arm: Snake takes it off and uses it as a club smashing enemies head like Fred Flintstones. Color: that got to be brown/beige

      • GUNยฎ

        A transparent arm would be awesome.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Storage Arm – Allows you to carry more ammo and supplies for your equipment out on the field.
      Colour – Gun Metal.

      This would help in a firefight, as you would not need to pick up enemy ammo, and for heavy weapons you would not always need to call in more ammo drops as you can hold more, also helps a lot for stealth in case you are stuck in enemy territory low on ammo and can’t call in a drop for more. Pretty basic I know, but I’m having a hard time thinking about any right now, maybe later.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Oh and.

      Fulton Arm – Allows you to fulton extract yourself from the field. And can be used as a fulton on someone else if needed, but then you won’t have it for yourself.
      Colour – Tan with lines of brown rope painted on it.

      This arm is kind of weird as you should be able to do this anyway with a normal fulton, but you can’t so here is an arm for doing so. Also I though this was a great thought exercise and is a lot of fun (THANKS, lol) but the more I think about it, this sort of thing would be possible with mods on the PC, lol.

      • GUNยฎ

        Huh, you’re right, it is weird that you can’t self fulton. I guess the closest thing is standing on a container and fultoning it.

    • GUNยฎ

      Seeing as people are doing multiple, I’ll do another one.

      Wormhole Arm – This arm would basically be a nod to Portal, you can shoot 2 wormholes on any flat surface, whatever goes into one wormhole comes out the other, however Big Boss himself cannot go through while he is wearing the arm as it would tear apart the fabric of space and time (real reason is because it’d be too OP for Snake to just teleport wherever he wants).

      Colour – The whole arm would just have a galaxy decal, so black but covered with stars.

    • SNKtheStampede

      I can’t and i don’t want to imagine what modders will bring, but it would have been great if they had made a contest for this. Like the Dark Souls Shields contest.

    • willworkfortoys

      Tennis ball arm for DD. That way we can play fetch in the field. When fully developed can be used to KO enemy or make Snake to go all John McEnroe. Bright green.

  • glitchbomb

    Maybe this deserves to be buried by 600+ comments, but the lead writer of Borderlands 2/Rocket Jump and his sibling wrote a book about all about MGS and thier experience with it. If you are interested, the Kotaku link on the site has a large excerpt from the book. http://bossfightbooks.com/products/metal-gear-solid-by-ashly-and-anthony-burch https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ac766730ab0884774bcfb8794eda70f8aaf31d49c5780f0d69517ab96028ffb7.jpg

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      This post gave me fox died….)=

  • CodeBox

    Who should I vote for in the MGI Poll, DD or Quiet?
    I havenโ€™t voted yet because Iโ€™m torn between the two.
    On one hand I get to cruise around in the jeep with DD and have him take out guys with his knife.
    But on the other hand I know Quiet will have my back if the mission goes wrong.

    • Danny Patten

      I personally went for DD. Overall I have the feeling that he will fit most scenarios flawless. Some missions will clearly favor Quiet or DW. Which is fine by me ๐Ÿ™‚ DH will probably for those who don’t enjoy running through the desert by foot ๐Ÿ˜›

      • CodeBox

        Good point, that actually sounds really accurate to how it may play out in the game.
        And yes I will also be using DH, but only while listening to: A Horse With No Name ๐Ÿ˜›

    • No Place For Hayter

      I voted DD, I will like Quiet more when playing the game and going through her story, but I went with DD at the time.

    • I like DD, good memories come back to me when playing Shadow Dancer (Shinobi) but i think i will bring Quiet all the time with me, i don’t want to be all the time soldiers getting nuts in Motherbase with low morale due to Quiet.
      DD does the contrary effect, Motherbase will be happy with him.

      • Danny Patten

        Is it confirmed that it fluctuates? I always thought that if you have both that they null their effects on the morale.

    • VENOMTIGER

      DD

      A snake and a wolf on a sneaking mission. Nothing cooler!

    • GUNยฎ

      I went with Quiet because I find her support options to be the most fun/cool.

    • solideater

      I’ll Choose Quiet due to bigger part in story. Also I was thinking if this was metal gear solid 3 I would have killed DD for puppy/dog rations ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Gatsu

      Quiet ftw! Seeing her so much in the trailers, I will definitely spend most of my time with Quiet-chan and wanna see her story.
      But I will play with everyone a lot of course :).

      • CodeBox

        I love Quiet as a character and watching her story unfold is one of the things Iโ€™m really looking forward to, thats one of the reasons it was so hard for me to choose.
        If only I could bring Quiet and DD along together with me on missions. The three of use could take on the world together.

    • CodeBox

      3 for Quiet and 4 for DD.
      DD it is then, thanks for your help guys (still was a hard choice;) ).

  • BurntFM

    I’ve been planing to fill my iDroid playlist in TPP with epic 80’s songs. But I’ve just scratched the surface. I’ll be rocking out Spanish songs from the 80’s as well just like this classic.

    • VENOMTIGER

      The songs are one of my most anticipated features, love the idea of pulling out in the chopper with some classic 80’s sounds filling my ears!

  • http://i58.tinypic.com/ke86qh.jpg

    Those are downloadable for TPP, from the Ground Zeroes codes (pre-order i presume).

        • slickrickisbigboss

          i would be down for troops with realistic tattoos but these look like stickers..

      • Yeah same. Tattoos should be general for some recruits. Not a bonus for the previous game

        • slickrickisbigboss

          if any of my troops dare to show up on my motherbase with this ugly stuff on their face i’m firing them A++ or not lol

          • Haha for me, I don’t care what is or what’s on your face. We’re an army without borders. Those who are rejected are welcome. Those don’t agree with the ideologies of there country are welcome. If they have a tattoo on there face. Don’t care, do the job right. Haha but if it’s a bonus for having the previous game…..
            You’re dead too me.

            Haha I mean in general not that shit in the picture.

    • GUNยฎ

      Can someone translate?

      • These will be the characters that we will earn in MotherBase thanks to the code from Ground Zeroes (DLC)
        Basically what i said.

        If you meant japanesse, no idea.

    • The only thing that makes me nuts is; there will be 3 different types of “staff members”, 1st, 2nd and this one the 3rd.
      Well, what happens if i pre-order the game, i get all these, and someone invades my FOB? They can be stolen, wtf… So what’s the point in pre-ordering those if i’m able to loose them?
      Or are these invincible or ‘un-stoleable’?

      Hmm…

      • FZJanimated

        My guess : this soldiers are part of your main mother base , so cant be stolen , but in FOB you only lose them in Multiplayer mode and not in single player ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Fritillary

          With the way it looks like it’s set up you assign soldiers from staff to guard FOBs, so you would actually loose the ones you assign….if you don’t save them and throw the other guy over the edge that is.

    • Chem

      i think we get this soldiers for buying GZ, and to get the POW and Camp Omega soldiers we need our GZ saved data

      • Yes, that’s correct.

        • solideater

          While looking at these will we be able to return to Camp Omega??

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Those face tattoos look really crappy. You folks do know that Konami are gonna DLC the shit out of this game? There’s gonna be so much DLC we will end up hating the game in the end.

  • Connor Nelson

    Is the countdown clock correct?

    • Andrea Feletti

      Yeah should be ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Tong Ninja

      Yes, it depends in what country you are as well due to different time zones. ๐Ÿ™‚
      So some people might have their clock countdown times ahead of others. haha

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          I was just thinking that. I’d like to see some creepy Kaz, Snake or Ocelot in a bikini inflatables. Just to see the enemy soldier reactions. Only kojima would think of something that funny.

          • FZJanimated

            i was thinking about Kaz and big boss in swimsuit making sexy poses like in Date with kaz in MGS Peace walker lol , u know for the female soldiers haha and ocelot of course.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            LOL

  • Gatsu

    19 days left for this! Goddamit, can’t wait, so excited to play it …

    https://youtu.be/doZuIaHR8Gg?t=451

    By the way, I really like the background music in the hospital sequence, when Snake is crawling around. It always remind me of John Carpenter’s The Thing (cool movie) OST from 1982, made by Ennio Morricone :). So awesome.

  • DavidHSnake

    So close and and so far way from the game. Cant wait to know the roles of gray fox and young solid snake. The hype still nuclear!

    @Gatsu88:disqus

    RE2 Remake confirmed! RE3 Remake needs to happen after this!

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I saw a twitter photo of some sort of script image saying Biohazard 2 :D. This is good news imo, instead of doing RE7 too soon. After the kind of mess RE6 was, they should take more time if decide to do it.

      I am so happy to hear of this remake <3, although with movies I don't usually like when they are done. But seeing RE2 with current tech will be SO EPIC :D, William, MR.X and them lickers. Not to forget Leon and Claire oooh yeah! RE3 needs to be done after this.
      Resident Evil 2 is one of my most favorite games ever and I've played it so much since 1998 XD. Still do sometimes…

      I just hope they will do it well, like really well! Prince what do you think would be better, to have the old style camera angles, or the same one like most games these days have, over the shoulder? Not sure what's it called again. RE2 and FF7 remake=mind-blown <(^O^<). Btw Prince-chan, are you on Steam ๐Ÿ™‚ ?

      • PrinceHeir

        Amazing time to be alive ๐Ÿ™‚

        RE2 is awesome, but RE3 will always have a special place for me ^^

        Nemesis alone, is just too iconic character to passed up!

        I think old school RE camera would be better. It would let players think twice on what to do, harder enemies since they have more health and limited ammo.

        I actually love the over the shoulder camera, but i think it would be nice to bring the old style once in awhile.

        Just make the Mercenaries game over the shoulder with tons of melee options and we’re good to go ^^

        My name is not appearing on the steam search database since a lot of people have used it unfortunately ๐Ÿ™

        Just give me your steam ID or link here and i’ll add you when i can. I’ll change my name to something else so the search would be better.

        Would love MSX MG REmakes in the near future as well!

        • Gatsu

          The old camera angle is nice sort of, when you might hear enemy but can’t see it :D. Aye I love Nemesis, it was scary to run from it throughout the city XD…

          My steam name is Gatsu also, avatar is the Yoji Shinkawa’s TPP Biggu Bossu with red prosthetic. Give invite when you want ๐Ÿ™‚ and will bring you over to our Steam MGI group too.

            “The old camera angle is nice sort of, when you might hear enemy but can’t see it”

            How about NOT having the fixed camera? How about just hearing something nasty coming and knowing that you don’t have enough ammo to killed it. Probably shouldn’t have wasted bullets shooting those creepy crows.

            I just happen to like both styles :). Over shoulder is best, but they need to do it well enough to feel like survival horror. Dead Space is great example how to do it. Limited ammo as you said is a must and all the other good old stuff, item box, typewriter etc.

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, i’m sorry,i respect Shinji too much to buy a Re-make when i could play his original Game, i mean, we don’t care about Graphics, right?

      • Gatsu

        I can easily enjoy a game without superb graphics, but I also do love them. I mean if I’d play TPP with MSX graphics, it would be a bit different experience than with Fox Engine. I play his original game too :), but yeah it would be nice to have Shinji on board with making these.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Which is why i won’t give money to someone that got rid of Mokami, same to Konami!

      • No Place For Hayter

        Amen.

      • Sovereign SnaKe

        ~Remember though, Hideki Kamiya made RE2. He and Shinji Mikami fought (shocking) constantly. I do love Kamiya but he fights with everyone! Mikami-san stepped down as producer because they couldn’t play nice. I actually wouldn’t mind if Kamiya ended up working with Capcom again on this after he’s finished with Scalebound.

    • Sovereign SnaKe

      “WE DO IT!” (when you have no English Translators on staff.) T-shirt cum with game…? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Venom_Sina

        I think he meant:”WE DID IT!”,or this one:”WE ARE GOING TO DO IT!”.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      As long as they don’t go back to the fixed camera and tank controls. Real survival horror is needed. Limited ammo and resources. Bring back poisons and other horrible affiliations. And lastly the most important of all. LEVEL DESIGN!. Resident Evil 4 got this just right. Since Mikami left they been unable to recreate it.

    • Venom_Sina

      I think they’ll go for the classic camera and tank controls.The way they remastered 1 (and the upcoming 0) and fans loved it,it’s a huge risk to go for over-the-shoulder IMO.They really annoyed fans with RE6 and with these two remasters,they’re getting back to the fans’ hearts.They’re not gonna shoot themselves in the foot,again!!!
      I hope for a REMAKE just like what Mikami and his team did with RE1.Remaking the game fully + new items,areas,puzzles etc.
      I would be happy if they bundle the original RE2 with the package.This way,new gamers and audiences will understand what was gaming back in the 90s.

        Yeah UAE people saying they’re getting it tonight leaked, i try to avoid them as soon as i read that.

        • Gatsu

          Okey, thanks for the heads up brother! I may sound like some asshole :(, but people who leak games so early should be put into jail for life, without any possibility for parole. Will be fun to spend the last 2 weeks dodging nuke bombs.

          I dont mind when it gets leaked, aslong as no one spoils, because to be honest if i went into a shop today and they asked me if i wanted TPP right now i honestly dont think i would be able to resist,

          i will just be careful of what i read from now on haha

        Can’t believe some get to play it already, while we are suffering here for 19 days ;O ……

        • Venom_Sina

          Yeah,that’s right,and if they release the game here,it will be the PS4 version (which I personally can’t play).So I’m gonna wait 17-18 days for the PS3 version.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The last gen versions will be leaked first on torrent sites. I’m gonna have to put a hammer to my newly modded Xbox 360. Just bite my lip. The waiting is just unbearable.

        You have been warned folks.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Thanks for the heads up. Didn’t even know the game went gold.

    • gerber

      In that case, I’m going offline. After so many years of waiting it’s too risky, I don’t want to have story ruined like I had with MGS4 ending. Farewell comrades

      • Gatsu

        Adios amigo, stay safe on the battlefields ;)…

      • No Place For Hayter

        See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7 glad you are smart enough to go offline now, I’m not LOL.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Oh shit really? wow mind blown, like wow, that is almost a month early. How I’m I going to avoid spoilers now? the plan was to go offline on release and play like most of the other people (of course others would get it earlier by a week or something) but 19 days? I give it 6 days before everyone on the internet knows. Damn.

  • Javier

    What a shitty event in buenos aires. They showed the gamescom trailer, e3 gameplay and a mexican guy talked about mother base. Then you can only play pes. I played 4 minutes and they kicked us out. I went with a friend, now I’m a little embarrassed for taking him to that place.

    And with this I want to start the blackout. The last news and trailers made a negative effect on me, I don’t know why. Thank you for everything guys, you are great. See you in september. And please defend my fob. javislav3 on ps4.

      No difficulty settings? But Hard on Ground Zeroes was so good… too bad :/

      • solideater

        Default would be Normal. After Completing Hard Mode Option Would Be Enabled…

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          Let’s hope.

      • No Place For Hayter

        It makes sense there is no difficulty option. GZ had difficulty because it was possible to limit what gear you had and what gear you could get, but in TPP you can’t control that, also for enemy sight they should just use the Hard mode setting for TPP. Due to mother base, and the mission based system I doubted there would be, even PW did not have a difficulty option.

            Of course comrade :), but anyone in the group can invite you. I’ll send you invite when get home. Currently using phone and not sure if I can do it using the mobile version ;D.

        -Great gameplay
        -What the hell is this story even
        -lots of choice

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        funny thing is I’ve never even watched much Chappelle, just the Sesame Street skit, Black Bush oil scene, and part of “Fuck Your Couch”. I need to watch the one about Dylan the rapper.

  • My_FutureDream

    Hey guys, I have a quick question to ask about MGS Ground Zeros, I’m trying to get 100% completion in the game but I seem to be stuck to 96%. I have all trophies for the game but i still don’t know what else to do. I have managed to complete at least one trail on each difficulty and mission.

    I have to confess that every time i picked up a cassette tape i immediately quit to the title screen. But i still managed to obtain the trophy this way but maybe the game doesn’t register? If i go to my cassette tapes it shows that i have them all. Any suggestions? Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Andrea Feletti

      You have to s rank all missions ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • My_FutureDream

        That what i need to do, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      • S ranking all the missions in TPP. That is going to be a hard one.

        • Ravenous

          That’s going to be a hard, long journey indeed, but I, for one, can’t wait to start it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Danny Patten

      100% = S rank everything, Just unlock all trials, collect all tapes (thats why you want to S rank everything; the Zone Enders theme will be unlocked after that as a a reward) and that should be it

      • My_FutureDream

        I just checked and i haven’t S ranked all missions on hard, just normal. so i’ll do that and hopefully get 100% thank you i appreciate your help : )

    • Golgari

      You need to unlock Trials! That’s it.
      Complete one trial on Normal for each mission to unlock the rest for Normal mode. Do the same thing for Hard mode to unlock all of them for Hard. That should get you the 100% thing.

      It’s annoying and not explained well, but that’s how it is.

      • My_FutureDream

        i have unlocked all trails, but it seems that i haven’t S ranked all missions on hard mode which I’m sure is the solution, thank you for your help : )

  • NakedSnake85

    So guys.. Are you going to be dissapointed if Venom is actually a body double for big boss during the Phantom pain?

    • Mini gear

      yeah

      • NakedSnake85

        ill be dissapointed if hes not ! :/

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      The game could finish with Raiden chopping soldiers heads naked and it will be a masterpiece for me . My mind is thinking no matter what : Masterpiece . I’m brainwashed by Kojima mastermind

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, I won’t.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Hell yes.

      That being said that is simply because of what we know now, I would have said the same thing if you asked my about MGS2. But this is Kojima, he wouldn’t make it a body double and ruin the whole story and have it be forced and stupid, it would be like MGS2 in which it would work excellently with the themes and message and story of the game. But off of everything we have seen so far and everything we know so far, having a body double would be fucking stupid as all hell.

      • NakedSnake85

        plotwise hideo could go into very intresting paths.. Like the Medic.. Or chico..Or us the players.. or skullface and big boss being the one and the same. Even gray fox could have been intresting as hell. but people dont understand that in order for something to work there has to be a built up for it.. yes maybe in sons of liberty the idea of raiden actually worked ( at least for me) but this time there was GZ. plot wise it set the foundation for some possible plot twists.. My thoughts after i finished GZ were that Venom is either Chico (cause he had all the motivation he needed to be venom if big boss was indeed in a coma) or the medic.! as he embodies a random msf recruit that symbolizes us.. its very complicated and i would be glad to discuss it further.. Both chico and the medic being venom would have beene xcellent plot twists IMO but im preety much wrong. The idea of skullface manipulating big boss mentally grown on me and even though Python Selkan is most likely wrong about his gray fox theory i must admit that he had few excellent points in some of his videos

    • Chem

      yes

    • SchmittLenin

      Yes, ’cause that’d be dumb

  • Sockerfri

    Hoy, guys! Too many days have passed since we had some news. IM ITCHING HERE.

  • NakedSnake85

    even though im not a fan of Python Selkan i must admit that his trailer is epic

    • vic boss

      For some strange reason I can’t watch the video in my phone , I’ll have to try when I’m home.

      • NakedSnake85

        Its because of the music he used for the video

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      You could love or hate the Theories of this brothers . But the amount of work and passion on the franchise deserves my Thumbs . They hook me up since 2012 . Lover for metal gear solid at the end it’s all that’s matter

      • NakedSnake85

        i agree100%
        I too believe that venom is Big Boss’ double. maybe not gray fox..
        I kinda disagree with both PS’ and yong’s attitude though. When they started arguing and all about whos the best they kinda both lost me in the process. i followed their channels for hype reasons though

        • No Place For Hayter

          I’m going to take a side here and say Yong never said anything bad or argued anything about who was best, Python was the only one who came across with attitude and threw out half baked insults. Yong, was professional and Python got defensive way to easily.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Is metal gear Solid dude .. Emotions are strongly hard to stop. I agree with yong profesionalism but there are some things i don’t like about him. Still is one of the best youtubers . He’s never took one side of the whole mess between kojima / konami . Everytime something bad happends he was Sceptical . Sometimes you need to be a man and spread out your feellings .Also there are too many research that comes from people like your or I and he never quote their names on the matter until the news came . Is just my thoughts but he’s great

          • NakedSnake85

            havent u watched the codec interviews he did? he stated multiple times that he is an expert on metal gear and he even offered him self to explain the lore to David Hayter Flyn to James Horan and to Christopher Randolph. I watched each and every one of his playthroughs and his knowledge on metal gear is… meh.. so he cant running around saying these things. its annoying. i do appreciate his hard work and the popularity he gained after all these years as he was the main source of information about my beloved franchise.. but thats it.. he became annoying after a while

          • No Place For Hayter

            I could see that, he assumes he knows more than he does, but I wouldn’t tie that into the python/yong thing.

    • markr96

      As much as i dont believe any of their theories about grey fox, i respect the amount of hard work they have put into their theories, it was always an entertaining watch when they released a new video

      But onto the subject at hand, that trailer was really really good, major kudos to the brothers for that!

    • Robin Besch

      truly a nice piece of work, somehow made me sad too. it gives of such a final vibe lets you realise once again that the end has come.

      • NakedSnake85

        my thoughts exactly

  • markr96

    http://metro.co.uk/2015/08/10/metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-hands-on-preview-the-game-behind-the-hype-5335459/ here i figured some people might like to read this, it is a rather good read,

    however there are slight spoilers about the mission (it tells you where the mission is set in afghanistan….not huge but i know some people are really really picky about these things…. but if you have watched all the gameplay vids, then none of it should bother you)

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Such subtleties are wasted on us though, as we completely bungle our first encounter. Although we get a bead on the soldier patrolling on the rooftop above us, we fail to compensate for the thatched roof and our silenced shot hits one of the branches. In another game the bullet wouldโ€™ve passed straight through what wouldโ€™ve been no more than a cosmetic detail…..o_o o_o o_o epic =)

    • Robin Besch

      nice read indeed!

    • Steven Michael Brown

      “Before he thinks to raise the alarm,” WOW! This is possibly the most exciting news yet!

  • MichaelPayneV

    I just realised that Guillermo Dell Toro might be the reason MGSV exists in the first place, I mean Hideo met with him and started sharing knowledge with each other when MGSV was in planing stages, and I think that TPP is a metaphor for Hideo leaving Konami and Metal Gear, as the Story is over here.

    Also, don’t the Red Arm and Horn ring a bell…Hellboy, anyone?

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      I heard somes journalist talking about many moments in mgsv storyline that appears been taken from Horror movies . One thing is 100% violent and shocking scenes in Tpp but horror atmosphere….It could be !

    • Robin Besch

      interesting thought bro
      having influences from guillermo can only make the game even better

  • BurntFM

    I setup a new goal for myself. Get 100โ„… trophies on all games before TPP release date so far I have Snake Eater, Peace Walker, and Ground Zeroes. I just need to tackle Sons of Liberty and Guns of the Patriots. Since MGS1 don’t have trophies. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it but I’m gonna give it a shot. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b67d7a5ddf89900c85d54e70fbb1853c67b89b4a13fe3c7837de506c7e9e7c55.jpg

    • Robin Besch

      you can do it brother!

      get all them platinum trophies so we can melt ’em down, and create bullets out of them that we take onto the battlefield.

    • Raven_Sorrow

      Good luck soldier. Just have my two cents that MGS4 Platinium its more attainable than MGS2 XD May the Boss be with you (^ ^)7

    • Fritillary

      Good luck on MGS2 100%. Those dog tag collecting trophies are just mean, MEAN!

    • CodeBox

      Good Luck,You can do it! And if you want, keep us updated with your progress;)
      I didnโ€™t have much trouble with MGS4 (there are a lot of helpful guides out there).
      But Iโ€™m still finishing up MGS2, I have to finish half the VR missions, Snake Tales, half of hard difficulty and then finally extreme difficulty.
      I wish I had time to finish before TPP.
      I have my MGS trophies hidden until I 100% them all.

    • DiamondDoge

      Good luck to you, I’m trying to archive the same thing, just a little different. I wanted to played through all Metal Gear Games and if they had any Trophies I wanted to collect all of them. So far I’ve played through MG, MG2, MGS1 and got my Platin for MGS2+3. Now I’m on MGS4 trying to do the Boss run ๐Ÿ˜€ MGS2 was a Pain in the Ass, but still awesome, have fun getting all those Dog Tags and the VR-Missions ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Chem

      good luck, is going to be a hard mission, MGS4 takes a lot of time and practice, and the MGS2 VR missions are incredible difficult, but it’s possible, good luck soldier

      So looks like Snake is just holding the DLC weapon, not Skull Face’s!

      • Diamond Dog

        Nice catch! This whole time I was thinking why would they show something like that in trailer, but I’m pretty sure you’re right.

      1. GZ early copy bonus
      2. GZ save transfer bonus
      3. Xbox digital version preorder bonus

      the bonuses themselves are self-explanatory

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    • echolution

      Do we have to play GZ on PS4 to get it transferrable? I played GZ on PS3. Hopefully I can get the bonus transfer too ๐Ÿ™

      • Raven_Sorrow

        I’m in the same boat. Save File transfer may nor be possible but the retail code it’s supposed to work from ps3 to ps4

There was a poll a while back about how many times you visit the site, and I answered once a day without realizing I check it every few hours, lol, and I thought about it afterwords and was like “no I check MGI way more often than that”, lol.

    The more I look at the picture here, the more I see that IV lead is not even going into his actual arm. Is there a valve on his prosthetic? Does blood run through it as a cybernetic?

      He still has his elbow, so the IV is going in his arm, some where bellow his elbow!

    Hipothetical MGSV Question…basically a POLL!

    PS: For the record, i’m not voting on my own poll, it wouldn’t be fair!

    • Ravenous

      Why no option for ‘I couldn’t possibly care less what rating it gets, it’s Kojima’s LAST METAL GEAR!!!!’ ?
      ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • MichaelPayneV

        Because by AO means that the Game would only be available on Steam, and Play Station and Xbox don’t allow AO Games for some idiot reason that i can’t understand!

        • Robin Besch

          interesting didnt know that they are banned on xbox. could you name an example maybe? oh and btw i cant really relate to the question since we have different ratings here in germany but everything lower than 18 would be a shame for mgs since it would destroy realism.

          • MichaelPayneV

            1 example is Hatred, and whether if is a good game or not relevant, the point i’m trying to make is that neither Sony nor Microsoft allow AO Games, while Steam does.

            TL;DR: Both Sony and Microsoft basically treat its audience like kids, while Steam doesn’t!

          • Robin Besch

            i see. i got it wrong in the beginning somehow understood PS and steam allow AO games but not xbox now it makes more sense.maybe its a financial thing like with movies, higher rating less people that are allowed to buy it so less profit.

          • MichaelPayneV

            True, but this also shows why PC is the best place to put the game you want to make, without getting worried about Ratings.

          • Robin Besch

            well i think its not to say which platform is the “best” to develop your games on since every game is different and therefore has different things to worry about.

        • Ravenous

          Seriously? What about Gears of War and God of War, GTA and those kinds of games, aren’t they AO?

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, they are not AO, they are M Rated!

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Happy 1 year P.t )=

    • MichaelPayneV

      I have the bad feeling that P.T. stands for “Post Traumatic” not just playable teaser!

      • And maybe it has something to do with Metal Gear Solid in fact! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • MichaelPayneV

          No, maybe it has something to do with Kojima, with his mind, feeling sick of making the same franchise for over 30 years, wanting to start something New, and Silent Hills was that, untill Konami shut it down!

    • Gatsu

      Glad I still have it T_T…

      • MichaelPayneV

        Now imagine if P.T. was available on Steam for even 1 hour, Konami would not be able to erase it, everyone would still be able to play it now, even if erased Pirate bay would be full of P.T. especially after Konami would try to erase it!

        This is 1 of the few examples of the good sides of Piracy.

        Now tell me if i’m wrong!

        maybe ill give a PSP emulator a try but controls are so weird ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Fritillary

          The HD edition on PS3 can be set up to have almost MGS4 styled controls.

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Really? Is that the same for mgs2 and 3 also? How? I thought I tried to figure that out

          • Fritillary

            2 and 3 are still the same controls. But Peace Walker you can choose between the PSP controls and a MGS4 style control layout. I think the HD version is better then the PSP one by a large margin. Biggest reason is it has actual online support and not AdHoc. And this is coming from someone who bought and enjoyed the PW special edition PSP box set.

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Sweet thanks. I should have figured that out

        • Steven Michael Brown

          Ahh I see. I played it on PS3 legacy collection

      Unfortunately, this soundtrack can’t be used anymore in MGS.. becuz it was stolen from a russian composer ;’/

      • Fritillary

        It wasn’t stolen, it was just ruled by a court to be similar enough to break copyright.

    But it also mentioned that Big Boss,at least at this point, doesnt know about his “Sons” (if I understood that right).

    I’m really curious to who will voice Eli in TPP. Since it has been rumoured that Pier Stubbs is voicing Eli (on IMDB), I did some research on his voice. ๐Ÿ™‚ I found two links…

    1. Skip to 0:25. Pier Stubbs says “I never lose!”. Does it sound like a younger inflection of Cam Clarke’s Liquid Snake ?? (Maybe his voice is a little but too deep but he can make his voice higher in pitch haha).

    2. More footage of Pier talking.

    I mean, he looks like Eli as well! haha

    While looking at the MGS V Afghanistan Demo I remembered that when I was in 8th grade i visited a place something like that, I don’t have the picture but it used to look like this a scene from MGS V https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6385a623159352b6079eb7fabc02fe7c19fe71920036d9621abd34311b642a98.jpg

  • Robin Besch

    while playin GZ i was wondering how many of you guys are using the new features like enemie marking and reflex mode. from the beginning i switched everything off i could and i think i’llbe playin TPP the same way. gimme’ your thoughts about it.

    • RJRO

      After i got 100% in GZ i switched everything off even the crosshair. I have more than 50 hours with all this things off and i really get use to it ( itยดs actually more funny and challenging).
      I may disable the marking sistem and the crosshair in my first playtrough in TPP, but i leave the reflex mode on.

    • kirtanloorii

      It’s not that bad. I played with it for a while and I think it makes for nice training wheels in an open world environment. I turned it off eventually.

    • WrongDirectionZ

      I tried playing without reflex mode. I loosed everytime i tried. Need defenetly more practice befor september 1.

      • Robin Besch

        maybe its that i never even tried the reflex so i got used to not having it from the beginning. we didnt have it before so i think its not needed now. with a bit of practice you’ll be killin it without reflex in no time, and every mission is way more rewarding in the ending when you see “no reflex used”.

    • Chem

      i play without reflex but using the marking

    • No Place For Hayter

      I play without reflex mode and without surround sound indication, as long as you have good headphones or a good surround sound set up you can play with the direction indicator off.

      I keep the rest on as it is the interface which I need, It would be dumb to not know what weapons I have or how much ammo I have left, I originally thought about turning marking off, but with reflex mode off I need it on, because if someone surprise finds me its game over.

      • Robin Besch

        i think the headphones are the most important part i never play any serious games without. which ones are you using m8? i have superlux hd681, they are cheap but i swear they perform easily like some 100โ‚ฌ headphones out there.

        • No Place For Hayter

          If I were playing the PC version I would be using some seriously nice ones I have ๐Ÿ˜‰

          But since I’m playing it on the PS4 I’m using Sony’s gold wireless headset, the ones with virtual 7.1 surround sound. They are good enough for what I need ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Robin Besch

            you ever made a side by side comparison between really good stereo headphones and virtual surround? i thought about getting some surround ones but i have to say with mine locating enemys works like a charm so i never bothered spending money on new ones

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, I didn’t buy it for the virtual surround sound, it works nicely, but like you said if you have a good set of headphones the stereo sound it more than enough, and most of the time sounds like surround sound anyway, lol. I have never made a side by side with good headphones, lol, but I can turn the virtual surround on and off.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Tried everything off, died in the first 30 seconds, CRAWLING!

      The way i’m playing it now, and i will play TPP, is with Markings On, Weapon/Item Screen only when aiming, Reflex on, and the one that makes the bigger difference, then one that makes it feel like a totally another game, the weapon Crosshair OFF, it give you the most GROUND…ed (pun not intended) SF Experience!

      • Robin Besch

        hmm never cared for reflex really… and the markings break my immersion. but i do have the crosshair on gonna turn it off the next time i play. hope in TPP we’ll have laser sight attachable then iร„ll be playing without crosshair for sure!

    WAY OFF-TOPIC:I was web browsing and I found this.It’s really funny!!!

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Very funny indeed. There is NOTHING wrong with the best game ever made. Great story, characters, acting, art design, level design, graphics and combat system. Very addictive multiplayer too.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,it’s a good game,but it’s not the best game ever made!!!
        I’m sorry,but I think there are A LOT of things wrong with this game!!!

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          Can’t think of any game that has characters and acting that’s so realistic. Also it’s pretty terrifying. Clickers are easily the creepiest enemies in recent gaming history. Let’s hope The Phantom Pain is on the same level or surpasses it.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,the acting is good,but what about the gameplay?and what about the story?Let’s face it,the story is a apocalypse cliche.It has nothing new to it.IMO the game is an average,and overrated too.
            I think TPP can’t get to the same level of acting,cause motion capture and facial capture are two separate things in TPP.But in TLoU,actors actually played the role.They synced their voice with their moves and the outcome was really good.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The gameplay in the Last of Us is awesome! The crafting and combat system is great. Great enemy and friend AI too. The only people that call it overrated bought an Xbox 360 instead of a PS3. Wasted an entire generation on a system with no exclusives. Due to bitterness.

            The Phantom Pain won’t reach TLOU with acting, but might come close enough to give that cinematic immersion TLOU gave us.

          • JJBYACH

            Personally I believe (hope) the pure philosophical depth of TPP will elevate it to a higher plane of storytelling in games, mixed with Kojima’s unconventional game design and storytelling it’s gon – *starts frothing out of the mouth and dies of hype overload*

          • Venom_Sina

            It has a lot of bugs,and the gameplay mechanics is like this:sneak pass some clickers,watch a cutscene,repeat the pattern,and about 2-3 hours of the game is just walking and doing nothing,just walking!!!
            The AI system is terrible,especially AI for enemies.How can you say that was great?

            Something to note:I first bought my PS3 in 2010,then I bought 360 in 2011,so I didn’t ” Wasted an entire generation on a system with no exclusives”.I played and finished almost all exclusives for both platforms.I’m not that kind of guy who wants to defend the platform that he/she has,and I’m not a Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo fanboy.All I’m trying to say is that TLoU was a good game,but not as good as this,and it has nothing to do with console fanboyism.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Bugs? I have completed the game 5 times. The only bug I ran into was the generator in the flooded basement. It was fixed in a patch. “Terrible AI” Your kidding? “Nothing happening just walking”….? Too much Call of Duty is your problem.

            I have played nearly every game in existence that’s worth playing in my 34 years of existence. TLOU belongs with the greats. Resident Evil 4, Ocarina of Time, FFVII, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Metal Gear Solid 1+3.

            Yeah.The AI sometimes do some weird stuff,like a guy stuck in a wall!!!

            Another thing to note:I hate Call of Duty,Battlefield,etc.Because these games are going to destroy the gaming industry IMO.I’m not a guy who loves to shoot mindless,because the gameplay is good!!!For example:I played The Walking Dead (S1-2) and The Wolf Among Us and I really loved those.They didn’t have any actions or shooting,but they were really strong in the story aspect,and you have to do a lot of walking and dialog selecting!!!The “Just Walking” I mentioned for TLoU is not the same with those games.it’s just a waste of time IMO!!!You just wandering around and the best reward you get is a comic book that Ellie reads!!!For me it was frustrating to just walk around without a certain goal!!!In TWAU you do a lot of walking,but it’s not a waste of time.You actually get to do something.

            Those games you mentioned are all masterpieces,but for me personally,TLoU’s place is not with them.

            I couldn’t have said it better.

          • Venom_Sina

            Thanks,man.

            DAFUQ ARE YOU SAYING MAN.. With all due respect to your opinion.. TLOU doesn’t get anywhere near the complexity and cinematic experience of MGS series. Joel’s daughter gets killed in the openning.. How are we supposed to feel sad for a character that we just played with for probably 5 mins? I can summarize TLOU whole story in like 3 lines LOL. MGS4’s gameplay is way way way better than TLOU.. i played MGO2 for 15000 hours, i also played TLOU online for like 50 hours. You can’t even compare the two. TPP is gonna destroy TLOU for sure :”) If i’m gonna compare MGSV to TLOU in terms of story/acting/gameplay.. i give MGSV a 10/10 and TLOU a 5/10 ๐Ÿ™‚

          • FoxTamerMGO

            “Cinematic immersion” you said? ok. This scene alone destroys TLOU

      • Gatsu

        TLOU is amazing game, but I wouldn’t call it the best. What makes it the best game ever? GOTY awards? There are games that have revolutionized game industry and deserve more praise imo. But TLOU is still one of my favorite games, but I just don’t understand why people keep saying it’s the best. Opinions for each of us I guess.

        The categories you mentioned goes for pretty many games.

        How do you know TPP won’t reach the same heights in acting ๐Ÿ™‚ ?

        • Venom_Sina

          That’s what I’m trying to say.This game is a good game,but it’s not the game of the century!!!

      LOL

    • Andy37649

      We should all do that when we buy our copy of the game.
      I’m personally going to paste on the game disc an adhesive tape. “A Hideo Kojima game” and “Kojima productions” are signs that MUST be included on the cover.

    • They did it a few times, lol.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Gotta love MGS fans, they actually go and do this stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

          If you smoke or suck on the end a glue stick time can pass more quickly. You can loose days. Careful of irreparable brain damage.
