Q&A from the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain event at Konami LA

Right now, crimsonfox (who has been contributing to this website as a moderator) is at the Konami studio in Los Angeles on behalf of Metal Gear Informer, getting his hands on the full version (missing only the ending) of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

During the four day event, which started on the 18th of August, he will be playing the game extensively.

Konami-LA-Studio

A 1-hour Twitter Q&A session allowed him to share some of his experiences and answer some questions. Check out all his replies below.

The embargo lifts on August 23rd. Expect a lot more then.

Update 26/8: After sharing his extensive thoughts on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in his review, Carlos Fregoso (crimsonfox) answered further questions people had during a second Q&A session on Twitter. Here are all the answers he provided (once again spoiler free, as he did not go into the specifics of the story).

  • Tyler Torgersen

    Thanks for posting! Its nice to see these in list form

  • Plissken

    I’m very proud of this website, it’s people, and to be a part of it.

    • Well thank you for being a part of it!

      • as

        glad this site now so huge and have opportunity from Kojipro (yeah,Kojipro not Konami,because they already knew us before drama began)

      The best online community I’ve had the pleasure to be part of.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I’ve not been here for very long (4 months?), but I can safely say it’s my favorite fan website to go to.

        imma comment right here to join in and possibly reserve a spot for myself in the MGI FOB Defense Clan.

        MGIFOBDC anyone?

    • Ishmael

      You can be proud of Nyxus and it’s team, they are the men that hold things together. they are the patriots. The rest just comes along.

      • glitchbomb

        The rest are what make it an actual community…

        • Ishmael

          Yes sorry, i didn’t want to sound like this community sucks or something like that. Actually it’s a good place for MGS Fans to find each other. But looking at the comments of every article, you usually see the same people replying. Some talk less and some way too much, thats what i wanted to state. But its a normal thing at every forum, shoutbox or in life in general. Few months from now, after TPP’s release, this community well be way smaller. There is nothing to be proud of i think. The only ones who can be proud should by Nyxus and the rest of it’s team, which i unfortunately don’t know the names of.

    • akumetsu

      we are DIAMOND DOGS !!

    • glitchbomb

      I feel the same!

    • SEF1812

      This is a great community, I’m so greatfull to have found this page! It’s nearly been 18 months since we got our hands on Ground Zeroes and I have been craving TPP more and more everyday.

    • Shalashaska

      Best place on the internet.

    • Y Jebai

      Agreed. Me too. We are an army without borders in our own right.

  • Solid PhoeniX

    I’m so Nuclear right now . . .

    • Vegas

      Wow thats awesome. He sure is giving nice info. Hey Nyx are you jelly for not playing the game? I sure am D: But I do prefer playing it with the peace and quiet of my house.

  • Nice one Crimson

  • Ralexion

    Thanks for the info!

  • VenomSnake1974

    I’ve been lurking here for a long time now…
    You guys are amazing, thank you all for this site, for the intel, for your work!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Welcome to Outer Heaven!

    • Thanks a lot!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome ( ‘ ‘ )7 glad to have you with us comrade. Everyone’s pretty excited right about now, good time to show up in the comments, unless you get buried somehow, lol.

      • glitchbomb

        There’s Kirby again!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Nothing beats big fat Kirby emoticons (> ‘ ‘ )>

    • Arestras

      Welcome!

  • kirtanloorii

    I kinda feel bad for them. On one hand, it must be cool to play the game early. Then again, I would hate to have to cram my first playthrough into 4 days.

    • Solid PhoeniX

      I was thinking the same thing, They are really taking one for the Team. A Game like MGS needs to be enjoyed alone sometimes. . . you know. . . when the feels come

      • Ralexion

        I think I would end up crying out of emotion even if I was in the bootcamp, lol.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Exactly, i want to play it like home and not afraid of crying like a bi*ch!

        • Solid PhoeniX

          Ready Dem Tissues! . . Omg My Room is gonna be a Mess. Gona start crying while the game installs

          • MichaelPayneV

            “Team Tissues” for me they will be just for tears, nothing more.

          • korruption

            I’ll have dem tissues prepped alright! For uh… various reasons…

        • korruption

          Mmmm tears… *peels an onion*

        • ddmaster

          I’m already crying because of the wait.

    • Well he seemed to be happy to do it. 😉 And he will be immune to spoilers!

      • kirtanloorii

        Too bad we can’t just forget what happened and play the game for the first time again,

        • Robin Besch

          i would do that with so many games/movies… shit i would end up forgetting my whole life

        • Solid PhoeniX

          If I had that Device, I would erase all my memories of Mgs 3 then replay it like its my first time . . .also all the awesome anime and Breaking Bad

    • Chem

      it must be hard to not see the ending after completing the game

  • Shalashaska

    1. So jealous.
    2. Wishing I could play this game asap.
    3. Still so jealous.

    But Nice work @crimsonfox. If i was you, i would be tempted to slide the disc in my shirt before i leave xD

    • No Place For Hayter

      Probably have the consoles locked. But still could break it open and run with it.

      • Danny Patten

        You can lock a console? Oo

        • No Place For Hayter

          They can put something on it for that kind of thing, that or stick it behind a case so you can’t reach the console. There is also the possibility of having “demo” console units prepared for such an event which do not function as a full console, it is also possible that there is no disc and they are playing an installed unlocked version of the game. In other words, stuff, they will have something to prevent theft or console tampering.

  • Mini gear

    Aghhh so jeolas almost 10 days left >~< / also nyxus you posted two tweets twice about Fulton and optional things

    • Thanks for pointing that out!

      • Mini gear

        No problamo boss

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    I think that TPP will be heavily influenced by the Moby Dick story and Snake will be a sort of Captain Abab style character, consumed by revenge to the detriment of his ‘crew’, his soldiers. Another thing I noticed was on the Mother Base gameplay that was released a few weeks ago. There was a graphic showing Mother Base with 3 FOB branches. Obviously 2 FOB’s will be for Africa and Afghanistan, I wonder if there is a 3rd map that will be available. When you look at the claim that TPP is 100+ times bigger than GZ, then I think this is a real possibility.

  • DiamondDogs1

    I have to say, the questions people ask this guy are really fucking stupid. Its shit we already know, or shit any person with common sense could put together just by watching the gameplay videos.

    • Limbless

      While true, do we really want to know anything else at this point? The wait is killing us all but it’s so nearly over.

      • DiamondDogs1

        Probably isnt anything else to know, besides the story which is embargoed completely

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    Obviously we are all getting caught in the hype of whats going to be an amazing game, but I think we need to plan for post launch. The clan aspect, will MGI have its own clan consisting of all of us members on here or are people starting clans that are members of this site. No matter what clan I join, I want it to consist of the people on this site.

    • Robin Besch

      im with you on that.
      an MGI/MGO clan would be the shit.

    • Vegas

      Tomorrow i will already start a group in the PS4 for anyone to join. When the game comes, i will make a clan for sure.

    • ddmaster

      Sounds like a good idea. All for it.

  • VenomSnake1974

    Painful wait is almost over…
    12 more days: endure, we must!

  • Hells yeah, awesome stuff, thanks to crimson and Nyxus for the details.

  • Mini gear

    I won’t go into to hiding, my absolute spoiler defense is here! ( if someone spoils I’m nuking their fob to deepest depths of hell also :p )

    • Danny Patten

      Come at me bro: Venom Snake is in a coma! FOR 9 YEARS!

      Now what you gonna do? huh? huh? huh?

      • No Place For Hayter

        OH! Why did you ruin what happens in between GZ and TPP >:(

        • Robin Besch

          so much for looking forward to TPP …

    • Mini gear

      • Connor Nelson

        tried it

    • DiamondDogs1

      literally cant find any lol they’re not there.

      • Connor Nelson

        Ive tried gamefaq, neogaf, mgo forum, not one valid looking spoiler

      • NakedSnake85

        there can be no spoilers.. they ve completed only 5-7% of the game

    • kirtanloorii

      There are no spoilers at the moment. We are expecting to see tons of them after Sunday, when the Let’s plays begins.

    • MichaelPayneV

      On Neogaf and Twitter.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      i aslo did but i wont post them here!!!!!! like i did with advanced warfare last year!

    • Ishmael

      go away!

  • ddmaster

    Man! Where can I get that T!?

    • MichaelPayneV

      I was asking the same thing @Nyxus let us support you, this community!

      • ddmaster

        I’d wear it to honor our brotherhood the first time I sat down to play TPP.

  • BurntFM

    Either Yong is tiny or you’re a giant Crimsonfox. Or both ( ^ 3 ^)*

    • MichaelPayneV

      Yong actually answered A LOT more questions, so, here’s that.

      • glitchbomb

        I dont understand, what does that have to do with anything? He was commenting on their size in the pic of them.

        • MichaelPayneV

          I though he was talking metaphorically, as which 1 has more influence!

    • glitchbomb

      Lol, I tweeted that exact comment. How weird

  • DavidHSnake

    Fox! Im already a demon

    • NameUndecided

      I really didn’t understand his answer to that one, “You’re wasting your question.” Unless I did understand it…

      Is crimsonfox just probably instructed to not mention the Kojima debacle stuff, as seems to have been the case at these press events in recent months?

      Or is it that the answer is “Obviously, no, there is no KojiPro logo” — which I imagine is probably true as well.

      • Robin Besch

        i think its both he isnt allowed to talk about the whole fallout and we also all knew it was stripped…
        in short: what you said lol

  • Cristian Landeros

    the waiting is killing me… 12 more days

  • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

    Jens Skautrup thats me! yeah!! (Just my weird Danish name) thank you Crimson, Nyxus and Gatsu ofcourse 😛

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    I don’t have Twitter, but I’d like to know if Snake’s animation for jumping (especially from heights) has improved from Ground Zeroes. It looked kind of unnatural in GZ. Did anyone else think so?

    • Connor Nelson

      it has improved, he rolls into position naturally so says yongyea

    • question to yongyea :
      Can you tell us some of your favorite game mechanics that haven’t been revealed so far?

      @YongYea: One cool new addition is that when Snake dives from high place, he does a roll and seamlessly transitions.

    • J_muse72

      Yeah, I can confirm this,watch the FOB gameplay again and close to the end when the player respawns as a chick, watch very carefully.

  • NakedSnake85

    LMAO
    Everyone calm down ! TPP is close. just chill for 11 days ; )

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      Well, after doing the math and figuring out I can install TPP on Steam at 7am on the 31st, not too mad.

  • Javier

    I think the question was about when snake jumps from a very high place and nothing happens to his health.

    The comments about game hours and percent of the game, I think, are unnecessary. The first time you finish all the missions in gz you have something like 20%. The rest is for replaying. In tpp we have that and A LOT of things to develop.

  • Big_Az

    This post has just made my day! Not to say I was worried about anything, it just makes me smile of how good this game will be. Expectations are so high, but yet it feels like TPP will over exceed it. We are going to be playing this game for months and even years!!

          • MichaelPayneV

            You’re welcome!

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            I actually realized that it’s probably barely visible when looking at it other than my Steam page, but I know I’ll find a good use for it. Thanks, though.

    • Everyone get in here.

      The artist for this is nuclear-fusion-dojo on tumblr.

      Joaquin, I’ve seen at least two artists now upset with you for re-posting their art without crediting them on twitter and getting all the attention off of their work from Kojima/Konami retweeting you instead of them. I see you’re spreading it without credit here, too. These fanartists deserve more respect than that. You (and by you I mean everyone) need to start getting into the practice of attributing credit to the artists whenever you post their work. Or just don’t re-post it if you can’t figure out who made it. I’ve seen several artists mention this problem in the MGS community and it’s deterring them away from creating new MGS fanart to share.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Hey wowow. relax . Did you see my twitter ? 90% of my tweets have tags of their artist. I just didn’t find it in that moment. take easy dude . You don’t know me

        • Everyone get in here.

          For one thing, a link to the source is a hundred times more useful than a hashtag. Secondly, do you check your Twitter notifs at all? Some artists have been messaging you themselves when they want you to credit them or delete your post of their work, but you’ve done nothing about it. And not finding it in that moment is really not an excuse. Look at nuclear-fusion-dojo’s Tumblr, he’s talking about what you did and why it’s a problem. http://nuclear-fusion-dojo.tumblr.com/

        • Nuclear Fusion Dojo

          Still my art wasn’t credited at all, the problem isn’t that you use my work, that is fine but using my work without any source or permission ask is pretty much considered crime, I’m really sorry but I didn’t spend hours doing for you to just take and post it like that because you “you didn’t find it in that moment”. Look, I know attention, but it doesn’t take much to just Google search it quick and credit the artist that had so much work on it, I hope you understand how much these situations upset the artists and refrain yourself from doing it again, thanks for your comprehension.

      • glitchbomb

        I’ll get right on that.

        • Everyone get in here.

          They were messaging Joaquin on Twitter, which he has been ignoring. Take a look at nuclear-fusion-dojo’s Tumblr to see what his feelings are on his work getting taken.

        • Nuclear Fusion Dojo

          My problem isn’t that he’s pretending to have done it, all I want is the respect I deserve and to be credited for all my work I did for the fandom.after all, what he did is a crime : /

    • Nuclear Fusion Dojo

      This fanart was originally done by me, support the artist and go to http://nuclear-fusion-dojo.tumblr.com thank you for your attention

  • James Raskalov

    I feel like CrimsonFox gets more entertaining the more he posts.

    All the new users here are scaring the shit out of me lol. On one hand i’m glad this site is growing and getting attention, on the other hand I feel like any of you could be a spoiler troll. Trust Issues.

    • Robin Besch

      same here i think the time has come to think about going dark… for real you know… not like the first 6 times i went dark lol

    • ddmaster

      We all need our own sound proof padded cells.

    • glitchbomb

      I wouldn’t worry about any of the old faces. I can say I honestly feel like they would never drop a bomb like that. And if it was dropped a mod in a hazmat suit would proptly clean it up!

      ….I hope

  • NakedSnake85

    *Not a spoiler* Sins of the father is 5:08 long (the track) nice !

  • Robin Besch

    people what about N4G? you think its safe?

    • Gatsu

      Not sure.

      • Mini gear

        Boss… It’s n4g were talking about, which I’ve come to understand will use any info for clicks

    • Ishmael

      nothing is safe. stay away from every news site. you were able to wait years, don’t be foolish and ruin this adventure so close before the finish line. just 10 more days. 10 more little days.

  • Big_Az

    Well peeps…..I heard through twitter that Greg Miller from Funny Games is going to be starting a lets play of TPP starting on this Sunday. Which I think is so wrong. Even tho he said he won’t be showing the intro, I just think it’s way to early for a lets play!! Spoilers….oh boy here they come! I’m literally going have to disconnect my internet, nowhere will be safe by the time we are into next week. Brothers and sisters, see you all soon. MGI clan.

      • Ardens Anima

        Exactly what I was thinking when I found this out.

      • DiamondDogs1

        everyone starts sunday

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Maybe he’s gonna just discuss it or cuntami will fuck him up

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      HHES GONNA PLAY TILL MISSION 5 AND SKIP MISSION 1 LOL

  • grapes9h5

    Thank you thank you thank you Crimson and everyone at Metal Gear Informer for answering these questions. Great to see you with Yong lol, he along with you guys has made the many years of waiting fun and exciting as opposed to tedious and desperate.

    • ddmaster

      Love his countdown retrospective, just knowing what we know now, release <2 weeks away…glorious.

  • AeroGre

    So the collectors edition went back on stock on amazon and I was just wondering how reliable is amazon’s release date delivery?

    • J_muse72

      It’s pretty reliable, it just depends on what you choose for shipping.

      • AeroGre

        So if I were to choose release day delivery I could expect it by noon? cause my main problem is that I have classes that day and cant stay home to wait for the package all day

        • Korbin Yahraes

          I ordered mine a while ago, just sucks I have school on the 1st. It would be awesome to play it seconds after it is delivered.

  • GUN®

    I think it’s time to avoid mgs stuff on the Internet, except yongs retrospective countdown. See you at mother Base in less than 2 weeks.

  • BurntFM

    You know what grinds my gears? The PS3 Japanese version of the game has a Special Edition. But here in the west we don’t get squat. Why is it that JP understands that there are still millions of PS3 owners but outside of JP think that just because the “new” generation of consoles is out we’re suppose to throw our old games in the garbage. I’ve had my PS2 even way after the PS3 came out and I had a lot of playtime still left in it. I’m gonna have to import this baby.

    http://img.amiami.jp/images/product/main/152//GAME-0014196.jpg

    • Connor Nelson

      before you import, make sure it isnt region locked. You presume because it isnt in the US that it will never come. They released the HD collection and then repackaged it with MGS4 a year later, Im certain in the months to come we will see more special editions. Ill be supprised if the mgsv console doesnt come to america by xmas

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      Use Nin-nin-game.com like i did. It cost me a small fortune, but i simply have to own the full scale arm and that artbook.

  • NakedSnake85

    I Just finished re watching all the trailers..The red band trailer…. shivers.. i know its like a meme by now but the “woooahh woahhh ” part at the end… omg incredible

  • You couldn’t put the questions up too?

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      They are there, right above his responses in the same tweet.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I think he meant the question that we’re not answered!

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          Oh. Maybe. I don’t know if there’s much point in putting those if they don’t have an answer, though.

  • gdeuce

    how can this game not win GOTY

    • Connor Nelson

      depends what outlet

      • MichaelPayneV

        Do you really think this one is going to be flawless, after Konami got their hands in to it and limited the budget at the end?

        • JJBYACH

          There is no reputable evidence I know of that suggests that Konami plunged their tar covered hands on the game and smudged it all up.
          The thing that kinda pisses me off the most about this Konami situation is now the legacy of the game is forever tainted, if there is something X person hates in the game they will now blame #FucKonami for it rather than the more likely creative descions made by KojiPro with the artistic freedom they have. Most people will never judge TPP as complete art piece like it deserves – a flawed masterpiece due to the differences in Kojima’s acquired taste and the players, but now any flaw will be cited as another case of the publisher came in and screwed that part of the game up for Z reason, not because Kojima had an idea, loved it and worked hard to put it in the game to make the game he wants.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Not really, if the flaw is something like 1 line of dialogue, than i will blame Kojima, aspecially since i am hism fan, then MGS fan, i tend to go harder and critic more the people that i respect and look up to because they have high standars set by themselves that they have to reach!

          • JJBYACH

            Yeah but how can one differentiate a decision Kojima made and one Konami did? How do we know Konami didn’t walk to Kojima’s booth smash his head against his desk and shout at him to change a line in the script due to it being offensive or bad which could reflect bad on the company? The fact that someone even considers that suggests the piece is already tainted by a cynical stigma forever clouding it’s reception as a pure artistic piece. I think the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle is a perfect example of an art piece tainted by accusation (at least not baseless) of corporate meddling.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Point is, i don’t think TPP will be a Perfect Game, all right, i’m an MGS Fan, just not a Fan-Boy, i keep realistic expectations!

          • JJBYACH

            I know, I also know TPP won’t be perfect, it can’t be as if it was somehow perfect for me, it would cease to be art and instead be something more akin to a computer with specific hardware manufactured from a checklist of sorts to be better than other hardware and computers through mathematics, coding and focus testing. My point is that TPP can’t be perfect but it isn’t (just) because of Konami meddling, it will be because this game is made by Kojima, and I’m not Kojima.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Good point. I just think that especially with the fiasco, there is a lot more safe to lower your expectations for this one, and get surprised by it!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Is just an assumption, as i’m convinced SH wasn’t a Perfect Game!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Depending on how much the Microtransiction fukk up the Game flow!

    • Ishmael

      maybe the only thing that can stop the game from winning this or other awards can be that its to rude, brutal etc. but i’m not sure since the last of us has been highly decorated, and that game was rude as well. but you never know about our society… secretly they love their tabus even if they point their fingers at you. whatever happens, this game will be THE SHIT. 10 days left until i say “goodbye cruel world”

  • john

    I love you all deeply but if you invade (venomous vipers) base I will literally kill you all…that said be on the watch out for them vipers 😉

  • BurntFM

    I’m getting myself ready for TPP. I may have to reprint that cause I ran out of yellow toner lol

    • NameUndecided

      Whooaa that looks really great, even without the yellow. It lends pretty well to the old worn vibe of the cover. And that clear case really makes it look like a rental video/game in the 80’s or early 90’s!

      I think I might go by Kinkos and get my cover printed within the week. And maaaybe I’ll have it printed to size in a white bluray case like that instead of [slightly taller] PS4 sized cover slip.

      IDEAS!! Thank you for sharing that picture.

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Could I use that as a cover when I get MGS V? Because from what I’ve heard, the official cover doesn’t have the Kojima Productions logo nor the tag line: “A Hideo Kojima Game”. So would that be a viable option?

    • Daburcor

      If there is no reversible, Shinkawa cover, I may well have to print one of these myself!

      [EDIT] Also, I have that Fox Hound pin on my favorite hat! Hands down the coolest pin I own (and yes, I have MANY).

  • Gatsu

    Awesome article as always, thanks Nyx for putting all them answers together !

  • kuaikukia

    Woah thank you. crimsonfox for sharing with us the information.

  • Realist

    Nobody is asking is there codec calls? Is the codec calls will be as interesting like MGS2, MGS3, MGS4 (Although not much compared to MGS2 and MGS3)?

    • Gatsu

      I think only cassette tapes like in PW.

  • kuaikukia
    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Yheap . Guess i’m stick with Ps4 until the game comes out . Really sucks but well there is nothing we can do about it

      • JJBYACH

        I wonder what Kiefer’s direction was? Look as depressed and confused as possible the entire game. I was watching the trailers in 0.25 speed to pick out certain things and noticed how in every shot he was in, he always has the “fuck my life, how did this happen?” face. Can’t wait for his performance in this game.

    • Gatsu

      Damn :(, oh well I got fast DL speed so it’s kinda OK to me.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Same here, from what i herd Romania is the the second country in the world at internet speed, but not everyone has that good internet, so i root for you guys!

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          Lucky dude! I would love to be in Alexander’s place( if that’s his name ?)

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yes, you got that right.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Well, glad they have the physical version in my country!

    • Meumels

      Is available to 10 AM PT 9/1, but if you already pre-purchased, you can dl and play before that time, earliest 9/1 New Zealand time p2/3— Robert Allen Peeler (@popcicle) 19 augustus 2015

      Does this tweet imply the game is downloadable + playable from 1 septemeber 00:00 new zealand time? Which is the 31st of august morning in USA and afternoon in Europe.

  • Matthew Theroff

    So stoked about The Phantom Pain nothing can distract my mind from it.

  • Shadow Rex

    Haven’t posted in awhile. Getting to close to launch to just read and not say anything haha. Congratz on the boot camp invite Crimson! This is going to be an epic experience when this drops for everybody. Also who knows how long it’ll be till I visit any web sites after sept 1, just want to say thanks Nyxus for the website, been my first click when I get on my computer everyday for a very long time.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Welcome back, brotha!

    • Gatsu

      Welcome back ^_^! Ye it will be beyond epic.

  • Korbin Yahraes

    Less then 2 weeks left. Disconnecting internet….now!

  • Connor Nelson

    I just ordered the collectors edition for ps4 off the gamestop website, is there a chance my order wont be fulfilled because of low quantities?

    • J_muse72

      No, it should come dependent on your shipping choice, I chose one-day shipping so it should come in the day of release.

      • Connor Nelson

        Same, I’m thinking of getting the digital version to so I can play early, but I want to have enough money to feed myself… Choices choices, very one sided choices

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      I’ve had some bad experiences with GameStop. They NEVER ship before release date. I’ve always gotten my games a day or two after release. Even with the fastest shipping option.

  • H’m

    Ya know what im looking forward to.. A week after release coming here to read about everyones diff exps.. Sharing info/tips n tricks etc.. Its gonna be incredible

    • J_muse72

      I am going to post some of my gameplay too!

      • solideater

        I’ll be doing comparison b/w X-360,ps3, X-one and PC…

    • MrVux007

      it will be couple of months for me unfortunately….unless i can find a way to smuggle a PS4 onboard the ship 😀

      • MichaelPayneV

        Or you could get a Laptop and pay it in fractions once a month, or how is it called!

        • MrVux007

          ohh no im not getting a gaming laptop thank you very much…id rather invest in my PC back home,then do that mistake….what do you mean by “fractions” btw?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Pay each mounth a% until you pay the whole thing!

          • MrVux007

            ahhh gotcha,sorry it took me a while to understand lol

    • Connor Nelson

      I plan on making some fob friends here (you save me, I save you kinda thing, or vice versa) and then when mgo3 comes out, I’m hoping to play with some of this community.

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      As long as this place stays spoiler-free, i am all for it ( ^ ^)-b

  • Golgari

    That photo with Yong is so great. I hope you had a a lot of fun!

    • MichaelPayneV

      Yeah, it shows how diverse is out community, from both races to Generations as well!

      • korruption

        A fanbase without borders, of course. xD

    • Gatsu

      Yeah :D, I wish I had the chance to be there too XD!

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Is Crimsonfox huge or Yong’s a midget XD

    • MichaelPayneV

      A little big of both.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Well considering that @Crimsonfox is one of us, i do have a question for him for when he comes back.

    Can you tells us whether or not there’s a Cutscene or a Mission between escaping Cyprus and entering Afghanistan, or does the game make a time jump, without explaining how Snake got back in shape?

    • Tong Ninja

      Looks like a time jump. How Snake got back into shape might be told through a cassette tape haha.

  • Gatsu

    Before 90% of us going into media blackout, fill in your usernames on the list at “Links”. So can invite y’all to Steam groups etc. 😉

    • MichaelPayneV

      Excuse my retardism, but how do i do that, what do i press?

      • MrVux007

        guessing you never used Excell 😀
        Just press the lowest empty cell,and type in the needed information(PS wait for a few seconds for other cells to load in since a lot of cells have been filled already)

        • MichaelPayneV

          And then how do i save?

          • MrVux007

            just leave the text in and it should save automatically..i can see your info already

          • MichaelPayneV

            Thanks!

          • MrVux007

            np

    • Ventris

      could you throw a link again pls o.o

  • Schmojima

    Guys, do you think reflex mode will be necessary for the first playthrough of TPP?
    I really would prefer playing without….always. :/

    • vic boss

      They have said that you really need it , that you won’t be able to tag everyone , cause you will never see everyone. That’s what I heard anyways.

    • Robin Besch

      im positiv it will be possible without… maybe im dead wrong but i want to believe

    • Danny Patten

      I guess you can disable it, not sure about the AI capabilities tho. Maybe you wanna stick with for a while until you coma accustomed to the mechanics 🙂

  • MrVux007

    (off topic tech news) did someone mentioned….skynet??!??! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_q6uLV4H2hA

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      This is just as farcical as the living organic future PS4 that was shit talked about around 15 years ago.

      • MrVux007

        weather or not is farcical we shall see in 5+ years….and i dont remember anything about
        “living organic PS4 that was shit talked about around 15 years ago.”

        PS3 let alone PS4 wasnt even in the plans lol…unless you have some article on that i think you made that up 😀

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          I read it about 15 years ago in an Official PlayStation magazine. It was around the time the PS2 was coming out. It was Sony shit talking as usual about their future tech.

          • MrVux007

            sorry mate,but that doesnt make sense,i googled for almost 50 minutes
            didnt find anything…if it true what you are saying,then im sorry….but i dont see anything remotely similar to what you said 😀

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I know I read the article. It was a long time ago. It’s strange it’s not on the net. Not even worth reading anyway.

          • MrVux007

            im sure you did mate….but please dont trow around some statements if you dont have something to back it up….this technology in the video has nothing to do with “living organic chip” you mentioned,hell it doesnt even have any connections to biotechnology….in theory many engineers stated that this is highly possible to implement,but in practice….again we shall see 5+,and boy i do hope it works

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I wasn’t linking it with your silly video. I was just talking about tech that will NEVER HAPPEN!. 5+ years? Stop whatever is it you are smokin’

          • MrVux007

            umm… did you even watch the video? cuz if you did,youd knew it has nothing to do with a brain lol

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Human brain? Inventiveness?……. OK? I guess.

            It’s just there hasn’t been huge advances in hardware tech over the past five years, never mind the next five. Has the IPad advanced, the games console? Computer hardware?. GPU’s are just using more grunt and eating enormous amounts of energy. There are no real hardware advancements. It takes decades.

          • MrVux007

            invasiveness*

            Um unless you are an tech expert we have nothing to talk about here anymore mate…you said enough by your previous statements…and to add up yes all mentioned devices you mentioned have undergone fast change,especially Computer hardware…

            also “It’s just there hasn’t been huge advances in hardware tech over the past five years, never mind the next five.”

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    Only 11 days left guys. We can do that sitting on a GRU soldiers head. Remember! Snake waited 9 years.

  • Moshugaani

    I would like to hear some criticism, so far it’s all praise!
    There must be some imperfections in there! ;D

    • MichaelPayneV

      Exactly, Crimson, tell us what you don’t like so far.

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    This annoying person makes has a pretty good theory about Venom Snake. — crimsonfox “Literally nothing is what it seems. This game will throw everyone for a loop.”

    Skip past the childish OTT swearing where hes gives his view. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vn4DZfcKBDc

    • Danny Patten

      When does the rambling end lol

      Edit: 5:55 is the point
      Edit2: DON’T WATCH THAT LOL

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        His theory on Venom Snake makes a good point. Kojima has pulled this stunt before. Why can’t he remember that Ocelot is a bad guy? He can’t remember that he can speak Russian fluently? BB never lost his arm. Mantis could be feeding him the real BB memories.

        I thought about this theory myself before. I can sense a HUGE! mindfuck coming.

        • I hope that isn’t the case. I want venom to be BB. I don’t want no mindfuck. Just how BB goes bad. And finish the storyline.

          • NakedSnake85

            what if (and remember what eva said about the Cypher lies about big boss) someone created the perfect doppelganger? and he commited all the terrible things we thought that Boss did. At the end big boss having the choice to accept all of these deeds or not finally accepts the role of the villain by choice. that could be a cool moment. Seriously.. do u like the explanation that an amnesiac big boss that was on a coma caused by a vagina bomb forgot everything he knew and was taking orders from Kaz and ocelot just to take revenge on a person that he can barely remember? cause u know phantom pain is all about that. I definately dont like what the story seems to be at this point

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Having the Venom Snake clone as the baddie keeps the original and true Snake (Ishmael perhaps) a hero. I think this is what Kojima wants. There are just too many variations made to this Venom Snake character to suggest he is the real BB. It just doesn’t add up.

          • NakedSnake85

            well my theory was and still is that the made was the subject of the cloning process.
            they didnt show us his face:on purpose. there is a guy with the same voice covered in bandages.(cause you know…face customization) he tried to reach paz with his left hand the hand that venom is missing. there is a 3rd person at the ER that i think its him (its us) (it WAS kojima he didnt lie).Kojima stated multiple times that he want the player to be snake this time.. and thats exactly what he does…

          • Hahahaha. A vagina bomb. She could of said in her ass. Haha

            But anyway, the more people say venom is not BB. The more it seems to fit. It wouldn’t surprise me but I don’t care. Aslong as it connects to mg or remakes it in the end. I’ll be happy. Or if Outer Heaven gets vagina bombed.

          • CrimsonJack

            “V” has come to … hmm

      • Before i press play, are there spoilers? Is that why you are saying “Don’t watch it”?
        Or it is just a theory?

        Thanks 🙂

        • NakedSnake85

          just watched it. Theory only ! : ) nothing u havent heard before

        • I don’t want to watch it. I would assume it’s another theory.

    • NakedSnake85

      Hes right though. As for his theory i agree 100%
      its been 2 years that i insist that something is wrong with venom.. so there

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      FUCK EVERYONE HE IS SKIPPING MISSION 1 AND PLAYING TILL MISSION 5

  • Steven Michael Brown

    I am wondering if enemies can follow you into the armory rooms or if they still just stand around like idiots waiting for you to come out

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      There are quiet a few tweets about the advances in enemy AI since GZ. But I hope your right.

      • Steven Michael Brown

        They ought to crack open the door and throw a grenade inside

      • Danny Patten

        I’d bet my left arm that they will kick your butt if you don’t watch yourself 🙂

      • I hope it’s surprising. I expect to be outsmarted a few times by the AI. Waiting four years, we deserve it hahah

    • Ravenous

      Whaaat? I’m pretty sure I’ve had a couple of firefights inside of armories in GZ, so I wouldn’t expect the enemies to just stand around outside in TPP either?

      • Steven Michael Brown

        I have had plenty of times where even in alert mode I run into the armory and even if they see me go in there, I can just sit and wait it out. “Cp this is Zulu 10, lost sight of the enemy!” Lol. Sometimes they shoot at the door for a minute but then they forget

        • Danny Patten

          That never happened to me. They always followed me wherever go I went. The funkiest was just one time in band camp…

          • Steven Michael Brown

            Maybe it’s a ps4 thing?

  • korruption

    I has question about pre-order.

    Usually during the final week, I get the pre-order jitters. I’d obviously love to play this ASAP but that’s up to EBGames Canada. I haven’t ordered from them much, but jumped at the change to pre-order the CE when I heard it was available on their site. Amazon didn’t have it in stock at the time – which leads me to the obvious question: any fellow Canuckers know if they do release day delivery with express shipping?

    • I would assume on release day delivery with express anywhere in the world. I’m pretty sure they send it before.

  • There won’t be Pre-loading option for Steam PC users, confirmed. 🙁

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      On Steam It will be available at 2PM on the 31st for me. That’s the 1st of September New Zealand time. A whole day before the consoles.

      • Are you sure?
        Let me check in my Steam the countdown timer, i think mine is for 19:00 or so the day 1st september. : /

        Thanks.

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          Where are you from? If your in Ireland the UK or Europe it will be in the afternoon on the 31st. It gets released at the same time everywhere.

          • Right now in Spain it’s 20/08/2015 13:50

            In my Steam it says: Available: 1st sept
            This game will be unlocked in 1 week, 5 days and 6 hours

            This makes the game available in Spain: 01/09/2015 at 19:50 aprox

            Anyway, as i said, no Pre-load. The day the game gets released, you will have to download from that moment, and wait for the download. 🙁

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The steam forums are stating it will unlock early for the countries mentioned. No preload is a deliberate attempt to frustrate the PC community. Those big company’s hate us. http://steamcommunity.com/app/287700/discussions/0/528398719789130804/

  • Eugene Voldo

    First review is out. French magazine Jeuxvideo awarded MGSV: TPP with 17/20.

    Here’s the summary in french (spoiler free):

    Jouabilité
    Le plus maniable des MGS, mais aussi celui qui propose le plus grande nombre de possibilités, même si certaines sont dispensables.

    Graphismes
    Ils sont plutôt propres dans l’ensemble. Le jeu souffre quand même de son développement sur deux générations de consoles. On a vu plus beau.

    Bande-son
    Des mélodies d’ambiance très convaincantes, et surtout une incroyable collection de morceaux des années 80.

    Durée de Vie
    L’aventure est sacrément longue (+de 40 heures), mais peut aussi susciter de la lassitude au bout d’un moment.

    Entre son gameplay riche mais des missions un peu répétitives, un scénario qui promet beaucoup mais livre bien peu, MGSV impressionne autant qu’il nous laisse sur notre faim. Un bon jeu mais difficile à cerner. La dernière énigme de Kojima?

    • NakedSnake85

      hold on im gonna translate it for you all 😉

      • Bigbossjack

        They had a review of 4/5 on 4 categories and came out with a final score of 17/20…no comment lol

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        You know french? Tres bien !

        • NakedSnake85

          francais est pas my langue maternelle.. mais oui je parle courramment 😉

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Je suis mauricien et mon pays etait ne colonie francaise donc je suis oblige de parler le francais mais je suis horrible en ecrivant le francais mais je parles courrament comme toi 🙂 tes de quel pay?

          • NakedSnake85

            je suis Grec. Colonie francaise? Nation d’Afrique?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Je ne comprends pas ?

          • NakedSnake85

            ohhhhh Mauricien!!! that means you are from Mauritius.. sorry i never heard the term “mauricien” before !!! : )

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Did you ever come here?

          • NakedSnake85

            haha nope but i would love to do so someday ! Have you ever visited greece?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            No but my fathers sister visited Athens and Cyprus one father the other and she liked it.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            I meant one after the other.fuck auto correct!sorry for the strong language.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          • NakedSnake85

            Cool!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Peux etre une erreure quand tas ecris mais cest Ravis ou ravit

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      gameplay
      The more manageable AMS, but also one that offers the greatest number of possibilities, even if some are dispensable.

      graphics
      They are mostly clean throughout. The game still suffers from its development on two generations of consoles. We saw more beautiful.

      Soundtrack
      Melodies of very compelling atmosphere, and above all an incredible collection of songs of the 80s.

      Lifetime
      The adventure is damn long (40 hours +), but can also provoke weariness after a moment.

      Between its rich gameplay but a bit repetitive missions, a scenario that promises much but delivers little, MGSV impresses as it leaves us hungry. A good game but elusive. Sleeping Murder Kojima?

      “Sleeping Murder Kojima?” WTF?

      • NakedSnake85

        well okay ! haha 😉

      • Danny Patten

        40 hours? Did they only play main story? And isn’t it a little short for a proper review? No to be disrespectful but I could’ve written that with only watching the gameplays^^

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          40 hours has to be only the main story. Hasn’t it? *Worried face*

          • JablokoMoloko86

            1) replayability 2) sub stories 3) hidden secrets ( locations ) 4 ) tapes 5) mother base 6) mgo3 7) Probably SUB STORY for all budies 8) Platinium Trophy 9) Development of the weapons and “things” 10) Raw Diamonds 11) FOB Online 12) Story hidden on tampes ( secrets ) 13) Ester Egss 14) Doing 100% of completion 15) Camp Omega revisiting 16) Leaderboards ( longest tranq headshot etc ). 17) 40h story 18) and the last and most important… Love and Passion of the fans from all over the world.

            If this reviewers saw anything that I wrote above , they shouldnt complain. But if they rushed the game and made a review based on that stupid rush so… good luck with that. We fans will sink into this game. We’ll create our own feelings towards this game and please… f*uck all the reviews. I am not watching them as I did with bloodborne and other great games. 1 sep … just insert br disk into playstation and play. DON’T WATCH REVIEWS. You probably bought the game before the release 🙂

          • JablokoMoloko86

            I want to mention that MGS Series did not had the best scores from reviews in general but it did not stoped the series to become one of the best in the world giving the series status of Legendary 🙂 Have that in mind. I saw many negative reviews about mgs series. I fave friends that left the saga becouse of some strange story twists and strange details. This game is like “you love it or hate it”. This game is for people that have differant taste in games. This game is for US

          • JablokoMoloko86

            GAME OF THE YEAR

          • solideater

            Strong Competition from Witcher 3 for Goty…

          • JJBYACH

            Not have the best scores? MGS2 has a 96, MGS4 and 3 has 94, Peace Walker has 89 to name a few… That in my opinion is critical acclaim.

        • Gatsu

          Yeah they rushed through it. Some reviews aren’t always very detailed. We can also expect to see at least one 1/10 review lol…not enough animals etc.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Gamespot will give a 7 or 8 just to be controversial. As click bait. Like they gave The Last of Us. Which got a 10/10 everywhere else.

      • NakedSnake85

        sleeping murder?

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          I don’t even want to think about what that means. It sounds a little too spoilerish for my liking. Or does it?

          • NakedSnake85

            My friend “La dernière énigme de Kojima” means… is this the final Enigma of Kojima?
            I was right to translate the article not by google translate after all 😀

      • Gatsu

        Thanks. :).

      • NakedSnake85

        As Big Boss answered to Elisa when she sugested to shoot Null while he was sleeping “im no assasin..shooting a soldier with his guard down is not my style:..”

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          Sleeping Murder? The ultimate weapon to surpass Metal Gear is words implanted in people that kills them when they sleep? Using Mantis like telepathy. Getting a bit too strange for me.

          • NakedSnake85

            There is not a sleeping murder you mistranslated the part.. the reviewer asks if this is the last ENIGMA of kojima? Derniere Enigme = last Enigma !

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Thank you.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      I know french?want some help?

      • NakedSnake85

        i know french too. the review is accurate 🙂

  • H’m
    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Most PC gamers still get it before the 1st. But yep! The no preload is bullcrap.

    • Ravenous

      Oh, that reminds me! Can someone with twitter ask Peeler if midnight means midnight PST or midnight regardless of timezone please?

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Regardless of timezone. The southern hemisphere countries are 12 hours ahead of most of us. It unlocks at midnight their time. That’s 2PM on the 31st for me. Early in the morning of the 31st USA time.

        • Gatsu

          Thank you for the info bro :).

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Your welcome. Enjoy the early release.

          • Gatsu

            Oh hell yeah I will :D, yes UK get it available around 13.00 and I live almost in same time zone :D. A day early oooooooooooooh yeah XD, if I understood it correctly lol.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I live in Ireland. So 1pm or 2pm on the 31st for me. 4-5 hour download on my connection though.

          • Gatsu

            Not 100% sure how long it take for me to download it, but shouldnt take very long :). Steam community hub exploded when no pre-load lol, but if get early release then pre-load doesn’t matter to me much.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Steam servers will be bombarded. Everyone trying to grab it. I bet my house it will be slow all day.

    • MrVux007

      just checked it out now…. this should be tagged as “How to start a platform war 1.0.1” 😀

      • Gatsu

        Hahaha ;D.

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        The geometry, lighting, textures and distance detail is far more detailed on the PC. Look at Ground Zeroes PS4. It is the equivalent of the PC version on medium/High settings. TPP has even more options like tessellation and anti aliasing, just to name a few.

        • MrVux007

          it is more detailed…but the fact to the matter is …the difference itself is not “huge”…ground zeroes PS4 version aswell as XBOXOne was a rushed version,while PC version had more groundwork (hence almost a year later release)…for more detailed analysis just watch this video…and ofc if you cant deal with it that people dont see much of a difference,well thats another problem completely 🙂

    • Ventris

      So with my internet speed I will play it on September 3th…
      No big deal, I was prepared for not playing on release day.
      Just please don’t post spoilers in that time guys 😀

  • FOX

    Here is the proper translation of the first offical review from NEOGAF user

    Gameplay – 4 out of 5 stars

    The Metal Gear game with the best gameplay, and with the most possibilities even though some aren’t that useful.

    Graphics – 4 out of 5 stars

    Game looks clean. Although, it clearly shows its crossgen roots. Not the best looking game.

    Sound – 4 out of 5 stars

    A lot of tracks from the 80s and a nice sound ambiance.

    Length – 4 outs of 5 stars

    A long playthrough (more than 40 hours) but one that can be tedious at times.

    Conclusion

    A rich gameplay but also some tedious missions, a plot which promises so much and delivers so few, MGSV is as impressive as it leaves you unsatisfied. A good game, but one difficult to understand. Could it be Kojima’s last mystery?

    • NakedSnake85

      “plot which promises so much and delivers so few”

      🙁

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        No Solidus, Grey Fox, Naomi…. SOLID SNAKE?…. WORSE! NO HAYTER!

        • Arzachary

          The reality though, is that it doesn’t matter what anyone gives this game. Crimsonfox and Yong have had a wonderful time playing the game because it’s something they love and are really interested in. Though reviews are nice, and speaking from an academic level, I love when videogames are taken seriously and spoken about in a deliberate manner, making realistic and constructive criticisms, if the game truly matters to you, then someone else’s opinion does not matter.

          It’s weird when people get upset about reviews, too. Don’t worry, just play the game; if you think it looks terrific, then love that and own that and it won’t matter if someone else doesn’t like the way it looks. If you think it plays great, love that and own that because your experience is all that matters.

          We’re all looking forward to this game so much, and we’re all going to be a little bias, but what is wrong with that? We are all waiting for a terrific experience, so let’s have one!

          • Gatsu

            I’m sure we all already know what to think of TPP. For me it’s a masterpiece ;D.
            But in a way, it is always nice to see a game you’re looking forward to getting great review scores. Although they are just opinions of people. Btw good comment :).

          • Arzachary

            It is, I guess, but in the end, we’re not going to be reading reviews, we’ll be playing it! That’s what makes games so special! Even as someone new to making them, the idea is to want people to experience the game, not read or hear about it. We don’t really need MGS movies or anything because we get to live it.

            The feelings of Snake(s) are so strong and so powerful because they are also ours, and that is something so special about games that make them unlike any other medium. The anti-war and anti-nuclear messages are so clear because we get to experience them. Even when we play as Big Boss, and we start getting caught up in the moment and enjoy performing his actions, we can’t help but take a step back now and again and look at what we’ve done. MGS3 changed the narrative by not only talking about how many people we killed like in MGS1, but by actually showing it to the player, and not letting him escape that pseudo-reality. That’s what makes games (and MGS,especially) so wonderful and special. It’s great to see something you love get recognition, but it’s even greater to be able to live those moments.

            Some of the greatest moments of my life were in videogames. I have had great experiences traveling, working, playing, even being in love, but to me videogames can be an extension of real life the same way films or books can. You remember every adventure like it was your own, and I love that.

          • solideater

            There should be an official MGI review for MGS V.

          • Hell yeah who better than hardcore fans

          • No Place For Hayter

            A collective review? if that is what you mean, lol. Sounds like a great idea, but would be hard to do, and the smaller opinions and points might be swallowed up and lost, I know I will be in the minority when it comes to certain things, and wouldn’t want any thoughts or decisions of mine to be lost, lol.

            That being said I don’t really write reviews or anything, I believe forms of art and entertainment should be held on a more personal and heartfelt level and should not be brought down to a simple statistical level for easy consumption for others. I guess in a way I’m against any sort of review or “scoring” of a game period. The points of a game and its story should not be leveled and graphed statistically and should not always be compared and judged to other games, these manufactured opinions formed out of not taking a piece of art seriously or not letting yourself fully immerse or understand it, stem from what people have created inside their head from reading so many reviews and categorizing games into convenient slots so they don’t actually have to understand or enjoy it.

            There was a point in the past where I was fine with the concept of reviews, but I know a few people whom think themselves greater then everyone else and everything they read on the internet (as long as they are the ones that find it) is fact, and after spending time with these sorts of people and hearing their thoughts on a game, show, or movie I see them clearly judging it as if it was a review and they don’t even bother to understand the heart or good telling of the story as they are to bogged down in the industrialization of their opinion of art pieces.

        • We’ll see

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            “We’ll see”

            *Puts his picky finger to his lips*

          • Arzachary

            Or let’s just do it as a poll. People post their scores out of 10 and it will make an aggregate of some kind to give it a percentage. Like, an average score for this site.

      • FOX

        well i won’t judge the game on this review. will wait for ign and other big reviewers.They fucked up with by giving 4/5 for game’s length

        • Danny Patten

          pls dont wait for IGN or Gamespot. Those sellouts would really hang up a game on 1 simple mistake.

          • FOX

            they both gave 10/10 for mgs 4. ı trust them for mgs 🙂

          • No Place For Hayter

            Now I don’t trust either, 🙁 only my opinion fits my opinion, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Not even them, the only 3 opinions about MGSV that matter, at least to me, are Chris Stuckmann, Jeremy Jhans and YongYea!

          • solideater

            Only Trust the opinion which are from our brothers of MGI… the rest are sellouts to generate as much clicks as possible by being controversial.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Next time think before you open your mouth, because Chris Stuckmann is a “Humongus” Metal Gear Fan, and he is also really professional, so don’t you dare repeat that!

          • solideater

            I’m talking about general review sites IGN, Gamespot, EDGE etc… not those guys

          • MichaelPayneV

            Glad you clarified it!

          • Danny Patten

            You! I like you!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Huh? [ ! ]

          • Danny Patten

            That was a “I agree with you” reply 😀

          • Ishmael

            don’t give a fuck about anyones review except your own.

        • NakedSnake85

          well you should wait and actually play the game on your own to form an opinion 😉

      • Gatsu

        I’m sure the story will be excellent brother. Don’t let first review crush your hype.

      • solideater

        Don’t dishearten. Just remember MGSV is the connection between Peace Walker & original Metal Gear, the story will feel incomplete if you are not a fan of metal gear. That’s why i always say to people to please play peace walker and original metal gear or at least read the story for both.

    • Danny Patten

      Sound – 4 out of 5 stars

      A lot of tracks from the 80s and a nice sound ambiance.

      I always wonder, what would it take to be 5 out of 5? I mean they say they like it. I’m not a kid of the 80s (tho i was born in the 80s :P) but the music form the 80s is freaking great. As far as sound effects go; I i hope they played it with surround sound to make this a viable statement.
      Ah geez…I start to defend a game that isn’t even released yet :/

    • Gatsu

      It sounds like the reviewer didn’t understand the story very well.
      I wonder if he had played the previous games.

      Sometimes the scores don’t make any sense when not explained well. How is 40h+ story 4/5 lol? But will be 10/10 definitely to me :).

      • FOX

        Yeah this is where they messed up. How could you give this game’s length 4/5 right?
        İ just found out they gave 20/17 for mgs 4 too 🙂 i dont think we should take this review seriously because the embargo lifts on sunday

      • solideater

        May be he is not a fan for the series or genre as stealth games are generally tedious due to patience required. Just look at Hitman and Thief games

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      Well, i haven’t plathed the game obviously, but i think it is clear here that whoever reviewed the game is not, in any way or form, obsessed (and i mean that in the best way possible) like we are. For me, this series became interesting when i saw trailers for GZ. Then i played all the games before it released, and im am so intensely hyped for TPP like i have never been for a game before. I can only imagine how excited all you longtime fans are at this point. So when some reviewer is complaining about the length of the game, or too many gameplay options (wtf?) i am not the least bit worried. This game is going to be amazing!

    • jack_coban

      They gave Ground Zeroes a 16 out of 20 and for TPP 17? Gimme a break…

      • FOX

        nobody cares about this review dont worry 🙂

      • solideater

        It looks like the reviewer is not a fan of the series or hasn’t played other games…

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Ground Zeroes was disappointing. Not just the length of it, but the poor controls, AI and the whole non Metal Gear feel to it. TPP looks and I’m sure will feel like the old MGS, only 100 times better.

        • Gatsu

          Poor controls o_O?

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Sticky cover system and weapon swapping is just too fiddly. Camera also a huge issue for me and most folks. They have addressed them in TPP. You can clearly see it in the demos. Also from early previews.

    • kuaikukia

      LOL it seems they wanted to write some weakness of this game but they couldn’t find it.

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    Have you seen this Play Arts “Mantis” The 3rd Child figure? Pretty awesome.

    • Danny Patten

      Nice! Sadly I don’t have room for those little gold nuggets 🙁

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Looks like the mask can come off. Wonder who it reveals? An Eli(Big Boss) clone? No wonder it has a November release date. It could be the ultimate spoiler. Or just me shit talking.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          september son september the month during which i was born

  • Robin Besch

    I’m such an addict… At work right now and i have nothing better to do in my 30 minute break than check MGI. Sep 1. come here already and release me from the pain!

    • Gatsu

      Haha ;D,it’s the same for me every day at work comrade. But only 1 work day left and then my vacation starts omg XD… just relaxing and waiting the last days for TPP … Almost here!

      • solideater

        At work one tab always open for MGI for me.. My Boss even knows I love Metal Gear, and I have converted him to love MG also hence no issue for me 🙂

        • Gatsu

          Amazing work soldier :)!

    • glitchbomb

      Lol, right? I do that on EVERY ONE of my breaks. Lol. >. <

  • H’m

    just noticed this at the bottom of the article..

    “The embargo lifts on August 23rd. Expect a lot more then.”

    Well if anyone knows what ign.. is like they we have already revealed every single bit of info an secrets by the sept 1st..lol ( no joke )
    🙂

    • solideater

      They’ll gonna make whole walk-through available by then 🙁

      • H’m

        i just noticed with ign over the years… if its out it the us, movies games etc… lets spoil everything, stuff the rest of the world 🙂

        • solideater

          Yeah they do it for the clicks.. and there comment is a war-zone among PS4 and XONE users

          • H’m

            hahahahaha very true…

          • J.Wayne

            I’ve made the mistake of keeping an RSS feed of IGN, they add spoilers to their headings as well.

    you need to see this video!! i found when i search a cover (e___e) to me is a goood fan trailer

  • solideater

    The guides are already available for purchase…and people are buying it. Why is the guide released before the game!!??

  • Gatsu

    Btw about the first french review posted below. I mean how does that dude be able to review it. The others who are gonna write about TPP are still playing at the bootcamp, right? It just feel like a rushed review, so not trusting it at all :P.

    Doesn’t the embargo lift on Sunday? I’ll wait for the real and detailed ones.

    • solideater

      There is a real possibility of breaking the embargo.. also as the games has been distributed to the shops, i fear leaks are imminent

      • Gatsu

        Hmm I see, guess my brain didnt think of that lol. But I still rather wait for Gamespot stuff etc. Always liked it more than IGN.

        • solideater

          I sense another 10 either from IGN or Gamespot. Oh another screenshot from Kojima new trailer..

    • MrVux007

      most reviewers get a non-finished(reviewer) version of the game some time before the release….but still,i dont trust the review

      • solideater

        Well that is mostly the case with EA and Ubisoft games…CD Projekt and Kojima Production companies are two companies i know who are confident enough to release reviews very early.

      • Gatsu

        You’re right, damn lol why didn’t I think of that. :3
        Of course not every reviewer might be at the bootcamp…XD

    • kuaikukia

      Not trust them either when they gave watchdog a good score

      http://i.4cdn.org/v/1440076433607.jpg

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        “Not trust them either when they gave watchdog a good score”

        I think I’m gonna be sick.

      • solideater

        5/5 for Graphics for Watchdogs!!. I think the reviewer reviewed the 2013 PC trailer not the released game.

      • Ishmael

        yeah… french reviewer gives a french game a 19/20 but a japanese concurrent only gets 17/20. by the way they rated TPP 4/5 stars in all 4 terms. end result: 4×4=17
        so much for that.

  • Gatsu
    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Holy shit!

      The last Kojima-made trailer… 🙁

      • Gatsu

        Aye…better not make him angry!…

        • ddmaster

          Too late 0_0

    • ddmaster

      Well better get back to banging my head against the wall…*bang*…damn wait…*bang*

  • Gatsu

    I wonder what song he will choose for the last trailer :D…

    Still listening to this every day…beautiful song.

    • When is the trailer. I’m assuming this weekend sometime

      • Gatsu

        I believe it release during the weekend too.

        • solideater

          I hope before the review embargo lifts…

          • Yeah definitely. That’s probably their plan. The last trailer and then spoilers left, right and centre

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            With Greg Miller leading the charge.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      It’s very Ennio Morricone like. A great piece of music.

    • MrVux007

      judging from the new screenshot im guessing this one….

      (Oh-oh, here he comes)

      • Haha

      • Gatsu

        I think it will be this.

        • MrVux007

          awwwww shit…this song,i want it in MGSV soooo much…i can imagine countless scenarios for this song to be played 😀

          • Gatsu

            Will be epic XD !

    • FZJanimated

      well he said something about the trailer not being a hollywoody-bigbudget trailer … so probably a more tame and emotional song ? , i wish it was Diamond dogs by david bowie lol.

    • MichaelPayneV

      The man who sold the world, probably!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yep, repeat function is very useful for a man like me 😉

    • Ishmael

      this song is dark as fuck! a perfect choice by kojima for his trailer.

  • JJBYACH

    With the brightness increased on the new launch trailer shot you can truly see demon Big Boss.

    DISCLAIMER: May induce nightmares.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Not THAT! scary. Although his eye is a bit creepy. Imagine being an enemy soldier on a nice sunny morning and then turning to see him in the bushes glaring at you.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        regan mc neil is much more scary.DONT PUT HER PHOTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(im sure youll do it!)

  • Can’t believe it. 11 days after 4 years of waiting… Getting that CE in my hands on the 1st. I’m getting skeptical that I’ll actually play it…

    • solideater

      Half of the day you’ll be trying to convince your self whether the box is real or hallucination 🙂

      • Yeah probably. Sit it in the passenger seat and an crash looking at it blinking my eyes.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      It’s 10 days if you live in the west. Not including the release day itself.

      • Nice

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          1PM on the 31st for me.

      • Chem

        i may be stupid but i still dont understand how the diferte time zones works, i mean, why did you get it early if you live in the west? i don’t live i the west but i just check the psn and said that the game will be available 12Am on pacific time, that means that i’ll get it like 2:30 AM so i’ll have to wait more … pleas esomeone can explain this to me?

    • MrVux007
    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      5 years since Peace Walker. 7 years since MGS 4. It has been a very painful long coma for us all. We know how BB feels (If he even is the real BB)

      • IF

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          I just have this sick feeling in my gut all day. He better not be a clone.

          • I hope not either but hope it works if he is.

            If he is a clone then we get Solid, Liquid, Solidus, Venom…. only remains in the game is Original BB wakes up finds a door in which there are lines of BB clone in test chambers and we kill them one by one.

    Like how can I get one of those MGI shirts!! LOL
    Nyx, really though. I really want one!!

  • Gatsu

    So Greg Miller tweeted a while back after we got the Q&A, that his Lets Play TPP which comes on Sunday “skips the hospital part and that is added after launch. Won’t play past Mission 5. Game is huge, won’t contain spoilers…”

    Mission 5…so much things can happen in that time maybe and it’s up to every person what they think of what’s a spoiler. I will skip it definitely :P. Just no point watching the videos every weekday, when launch is so close. Would be best to just read his review instead of this. I just pray to God that websites won’t get bombed with nuke-spoils.

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Greg Miller can go fuck himself. That click baiting troll. It’s still spoiler filled. Kaz rescue mission being a prime example.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        I want to know more aboutblodd diamons involvement in the game but it won’t be in fat guys lets play tu the problem with this is w he will injure people indirectly.people who are too impatient !

    • MrVux007

      😉

      • BurntFM

        I know right? LOL

    • solideater

      Here we go.. Spoil the game for the whole world just to get clicks…

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, not reading IGN’s reviews since they have a tendency to do that *Old Snake whooping cough* Arkham Knight *cough cough*

        • solideater

          The reason for not watching the video for me beside spoilers is that you start to develop strategy well in advance while looking at the video and when you are playing the game you are just recalling it not making real time decisions..

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      I’m not skipping it since journalists are aaying no groundbreaking spoilers between 2 and 6 .we see the metal gear in 6 though

    • Tong Ninja

      From the previews before E3, I think Missions 3, 4 and 5 will not have any story cutscenes/spoilers. You do the missions and that’s it. haha

      Mission 1 and 2 are definite spoilers! haha
      But yeah, best to avoid the whole playthrough altogether! I want to experience everything on my own. 🙂

      I’ll definitely watch Kojima’s last trailer though!

    • Ishmael

      so i can assume that mission 6 is a highly important moment in the story? Spoiler!

      • Tong Ninja

        Yes, the previewers that played Mission 6 before E3 said it had some major story spoilers.
        Also the area you infiltrate in Mission 6, reminded them of a place from the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” haha.

  • SNKtheStampede

          I read somewhere these special units can be transferred once….

          • MattleGear!

            Ahh.. What a bummer if its the fact.. Guess wait and see

        • Tong Ninja

          They can only be transferred once I think.

    • solideater

      Here you go comrade..

      • SNKtheStampede

        There it is! Thanks 🙂

  • MattleGear!

    Since we are just over a week away from launch, i was wondering what everyones Audio setup is? Headset like Astros/turtlebeaches etc or Headphone with Amp/DAC/modmic for PS4/Xbox/PC. Hows everyone prepairing for there missions!!

    • Surround sound for everything Metal Gear!!!

      • MattleGear!

        I’d love to have everything surround sound lol.. My house shakes too much waken up the oldies.. So i’ll most likely be stuck with cans d-.-b

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Pioneer 7.1 cinema surround receiver for me. Uncompressed sound of course.

    • Arzachary

      I run my PS4 through the same stereo setup as my turntables, using type 4 speaker cables and Denon SC-CX303 Cherry bookshelf-size speakers. They look small, but they sound really really nice and are wonderful for everything from jazz to MGS.

    • Steven Michael Brown

      I have studio monitor headphones but the cord is jacked so I have been using iPhone ear buds. 🙁 can’t wake the kids or wife as my usual playtime is late night or early morning

  • Gatsu

    Btw anyone know if I can use PS4 controller with PC? I’ve used Xbox controller so far, but I’d like to switch if possible. I know… I could search from google but I’m way too lazy to do that :(.

    • BurntFM

      Yeah, there are many ways to do it. One of the easiest one is to install the motioninjoy driver for your PS4 controller, other is using a program to map out your button setup but you’ll have to do a little work. So depends how lazy you’re feeling lol

      • Gatsu

        Thanks :D. I’ll try that motionjoy.

        • solideater

          Any reason using the PS4 controller? X-360 and XONE controller works fine.

          • glitchbomb

            Here we go! >. <

          • solideater

            I’m asking because, if he is using Win 10 or going to move later there may be driver issues later due to speed of updates Microsoft is doing to OS.

          • glitchbomb

            Ah. Makes sense. I was bracing for fan boy in pact for no reason. Phew

          • solideater

            Ha Ha. No fanboy here. Just worried for the comrade, to have the best experience possible.

          • BurntFM

            Different strokes for different folks. that simple

        • glitchbomb

          Motion joy is pretty easy to use, but I’ve only tried it with the playstations ds3 controller.

        • Arzachary

          I was wary about it at first, but the PS4 controller has turned into my favorite controller so far. It’s incredibly comfortable and easy to use. Jumping back to a PS3 controller after a while is tough, but I know that any third-party PS3 controller works with PC right out of the box. I don’t know what the current landscape is for after-market or third-party PS4 controllers, but that might not be a bad place to look.

    “Right now, crimsonfox (who has been contributing to this website as a moderator) is at the Konami studio in Los Angeles on behalf of Metal Gear Informer, getting his hands on the full version (missing only the ending) of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.”

    Wait a minute, does that mean Nyxus and the moderators for MGI had the opportunity to go to LA to play TPP as well?? But only crimsonfox could go because he was the only one that was able to?

    • Gatsu

      I was unable to go which make me sad, would’ve been great honor ;). But soon get to play…

    • Golgari

      Crimsonfox did a fantastic job. That’s enough I think… Sadly I could not go to the event, for some reason, but… MGSV is soon and crimsonfox’s fantastic Q&A is here. 😀

      • Tong Ninja

        Yeah, no problems. I was just wondering, that’s all. 🙂

            The wait is killing us all 😛 but it’s nice that a situation like a game launch can unite and move people like this, i also had september vacation plans but… i was “forced” to anticipate a week early, still on Sept. 1st i’ll be at home…

  • DiamondDoge

    Anyone got the Golden Joystick Book about Metal Gear Solid? I just opened it and read the first pages, it was a recap of what happened at MGS3. As a Fan I just had to facepalm myself when i read what they wrote.

    Apparently the Virtuous Mission happened in 1963 and not 1964 and Snake didn’t need just a week to recover from his injuries but 1 year…lol (by that time the Volgin would probably have a whole army of Shagohods xD) and oh yeah, he had to bring back the Shagohod, not destroy it (probably by using the Fulton-System :D)

    I know thats just some “small” Details, but that still bothers me, its just not correct and proves to me that they didn’t read their own writings :/ I hope this was the only mistake they made, a book about something should be correct in every detail and not wrong like this one.

    • Connor Nelson

      It doesn’t mean they didn’t read it, it means they didn’t play the game.

      • DiamondDoge

        True that, but that would be even more sad

        • Connor Nelson

          Is this golden joystick book series usually good? I’ve never heard of it

          • DiamondDoge

            So far its pretty cool, tells you a lot of the game and Kojima himself, only the mistakes I wrote about are a little..not okay 😀 I paid like 20€ for it which is a okay price for over 145 Pages.

    • NameUndecided

      So if that’s how they recap the beginning of MGS3, I wonder how they describe the whole of MGS2…

      • DiamondDoge

        Well so far they wrote that Snakes Mission at the Tanker was to destroy the Metal Gear, which is wrong because his mission was just to take Photos of it. Also they write that Raidens Son was captured by the patriots…

        • NameUndecided

          Squeeee!

          ::claps hands excitedly like a five year old::

    • solideater

      Lol 1 week to recover.. Did they also write it was the work of Nano machines for speedy recovery 🙂

      • DiamondDoge

        What do you mean? He really just needed one Week to recover, well to recover enough to make the Snake Eater Mission 😀 They wrote he needed one year, which wasn’t right. Or did I understand you wrong? 😀

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah one week to recover enough to go on another mission, Big Boss was a bit of a mess during Snake Eater, lol.

          • DiamondDoge

            And he still managed to take out the Cobra Unit, the Boss, Volgin, a nuclear Tank and survive a torture 😀 And that just with one eye (not most of the time, but the hardest parts :P)

  • Gatsu

    Also Kojima tweeted this of his trailer: (not sure was this posted)
    “I’m making a new trailer for MGS series fans. It’s not a Hollywoody big budget pre-rendered one but it’ll be “hand made” w/ sweet memories.”

    Mmmmm sweet memories :)…

    • Danny Patten

      Kojima should write a book^^

      • Connor Nelson

        I think he should write a mgs comic book that shinkawa could illustrate

          That would cost a fortune tho :O

        Well if it’s any consolation they gave the game 4/5 across a 4 part metric and came up with 17 as their final score (4×4 doesn’t equal 17)

        • Danny Patten

          😀 Bonus Points because they haven’t played 40hours 😛 just wanna get ad revenue and generate clicks

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          they’re also the site that gave Watch Dogs a 19/20, and from what I understand the reviewer never played MGS before, so I’m taking it all with a grain of salt. YongYea and Crimsonfox’s stuff seems more legit to me at this stage.

  • Ryan Locke

    I had to break up with my girlfriend. She loved me more than anything and is emotionally childish, and we were just too different. No ones fault. But as I was doing it and thinking about it prior I couldn’t help but to connect myself with big boss. What I did was terrible, I hurt her so much, but I know in my heart it was the right thing to do. Just like big boss. So while playing tpp I will constantly connecting myself to him. I connected with him in snake eater too lol It’s f*cked up to say, but I think it will make my game experience better. lol

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Your kidding of course. Who would pass up some kutje for TPP?

        Sorry Ryan…

          I will def have more SILENCE for tpp! lol No sorries, it’s always a good thing when a bad relationship ends.

    • Connor Nelson

      You’ll also have more time for TPP, tpp doesn’t need you to shave or buy it flowers, it just wants your time and effort

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        But TPP only offers brotherly love. What about love love?

        • Connor Nelson

          I do not know this “love love” of which you speak

    • markr96

      My other half is already well aware of TPP coming out and the fact il be bashing the bejesus outa it, but its all good coz she will be playing it on my laptop beside me (yup, gamer-girl gf…and she loves MGS just as much as me…im living the life… except when shes kicking my ass in 2player)

      • MichaelPayneV

        O.K. I jumped to conclusions. Did you love her?

          haha yeah i love her, just love mgs a wee bit more… (i havent said that to her coz id prob be picking my teeth up off the floor haha)

    • MichaelPayneV

      The fukk is wrong with you?

      No offense, is just a Game, what you did is just, idiot.

      Yes, I also connected to Snake in MGS3, but I didn’t let that affect the way I treat people, I didn’t hurt anyone.

      Again, what the hell?!

      • Ryan Locke

        I didn’t break it off because of tpp. That would be ridiculous. I broke it off because we were different, and it made me think of tpp and big boss. That’s all I was saying lol

      • Connor Nelson

        Chill. If he wasnt happy, theres no reason to stay in a bad relationship. he didnt do it because of the game.

    • scarecrow

      I couldn’t agree more. I had a nice relationship, she was my first girlfriend, everything was nice until october, 2014. She left me because she felt lonely, and she was right, I was thinking on myself, it was my fault. Nowdays she’s dating a guy from the university, and I felt sad but totally angry, because i still love her. The point is that i thought the same, maybe MGSV will help me, I felt like Big Boss somehow, all the pain. You’re not alone buddy, let’s have our revenge!

    • MGSFAN95

      Shit, I’ve been going through something similar. The similarities are stunning.

      Last year, I had something special going on with someone I really loved and valued. Then, just out of the blue she turns her back on me. Our late night conversations went away, our lunches together basically stopped, she just got rid of me. Like how The Boss did to Naked Snake in MGS3. And things just went lower and lower from that point on. I never had so many feelings for someone in my life when that happened. I was fucking devastated. I didn’t want to leave my room at all. Not to work, not to spend time with friends, not to do anything for a long while. She left me and gave up on whatever we had established.

      Then, a few months after I found somebody else. Nothing real special happened between me and this other person, but she at least made me feel good. Helped keep the awful mess that happened with the other woman out of my mind. But things were actually going well and progressing. Until I saw her for her true colors. Similarly to how Paz showed her true colors at the end of Peace Walker. I thought what she’s uncovered to me wasn’t a big deal, and would probably change over time. But oh boy, I was wrong. She turned against me just like how the previous woman did, took me for whatever love, attention, or nights out I had to give. The day she turned against me pretty much made me feel like whatever feelings I had to give (or mother base I had established inside myself), had just crumbled…

      I haven’t found anybody else since. Never really bothered to, I suppose. I spent the past year or so smoking away phantom cigars, one at a time. Watching those hoes smother whatever happiness they now have with another man in my face. Literally. Seeing them try to make me look like the black sheep in front of everybody they know. They’ve made me look like a monster. No wonder why I lost touch with some people.

      Now, here I am. A week away from getting my hands onto The Phantom Pain. I’ve been waiting for this game for 5 years. I have never anticipated a video game’s release so much in my entire life. This is huge for me. I grew up with this series, these characters…. They almost feel like something that’s been with me my whole life. To top it off, I am going to the midnight release for the game with my best friend, and I’m going to stay up all night playing this bad boy.

      I know it’s stupid to still be upset about what has happened last year, but these people had a huge impact on my life, how I viewed right and wrong, how I viewed myself. And just the fact the one wants to continue rubbing it in, or making me look bad, just makes moving on from it worse. That one deserves the revenge I still have yet to give. I have no idea what kind of revenge I could give at a time like now. But once I finally play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it shall be known. Maybe Big Boss can help me put the pieces together….

      • Ryan Locke

        I know just how you feel! Isn’t it weird and kind of cool how much we can relate to some video game characters? And people say video games have no good purpose.

        • MGSFAN95

          I know, right? Big Boss will always be one of my favorite fictional characters.

          Yeah, I hate when people dismiss video games in general as something to “promote violence” or stupid bull like that. Because to me personally, Metal Gear is like a book series or movie series in a way. Captivating story, great characters, and a fun gameplay to back it up with. I play games such as these for a reason. Games like Call of Duty, or ones that primarily focus on the online aspects is what give games today a bad name. With all the beef that goes on by competitive online play and such…….. Still. It isn’t right to dismiss games like Metal Gear as bad because they are simply a video game.

  • J_muse72

    This from Kojima’s Twitter, a screenshot from his new trailer. It looks dark, very dark, and I love the dark theme!

    • Connor Nelson

      its not just dark… everything its illuminated by a bright white with the only contrast (besides a pipe) being a snake in shadows, almost defiant against the piercing white.

      A demon.

        I meant dark themed not lighting, I knew I shouldn’t have worded it like that lol

    OK, IMHO this is the best fan-made trailer for TPP so far, say what you will about PythonSelkan, but I recommend EVERYONE to see this one:

  • J_muse72

    Anyone else been passing the time with Fallout Shelter?

    • Connor Nelson

      I’ve been playing the mgsv gz mother base mini game with the hope that some of the mechanics made it into the final game

      • J_muse72

        I was playing that for a long time until this month, I got a new phone and lost everything lol

        • Connor Nelson

          That happened to me when i switched from ps3 to 4

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Have I got spoiled? Someone said some spoilers a while ago on this topic and his comment got deleted.. what I read was legit spoilers or what? :(((((((((((((((((((((( he said venom snake is *****

    • Ishmael

      i don’t kown what you read but you better stay away from everything that has the line ‘metal gear’ in it. that also goes for this page. it’s just natural that a this point in time the spoiler potential is very high.

    • Connor Nelson

      I know what your talking about. How would anyone know if it was legit?

      • FoxTamerMGO

        Idk, but when i read it my heart almost stopped, i don’t want that experience again. i’m sad to say this guys but this might be my last appearance here till MGSV releases. Sayonara.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Might be? lol, ok than.

          See you on the other side ( ‘ ‘ )7

          “he said venom snake is *****” also any spoiler that absurd I wouldn’t even take seriously, lol, media black out is a good idea, but don’t worry about the spoiler, if it turns out to be true SURPRISE! but if it isn’t SURPRISE! as well, the point being we really don’t know so either way it really can’t be a spoiler. Again it sounds stupid, ignore it, lol.

    • NakedSnake85

      Everybody calm down.. Noone has beaten the Game yet. All spoilers are fake

  • BurntFM

    I’m not sure if that french reviewer wanted to be edgy and controversial and try to find flaws in TPP where there were none and tried to be cynic because that was the hipster thing to do but, the consensus is that the game is the best MGS EVER!!

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=176055318&postcount=622

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      I read those French asshole reviewers.

      First: the game has 2 endings like peace walker ( this is not a spoiler it was preatty obvious) . This guy whine about the game do not resolve his questions and he didn’t even unlocked the true story behind mgsv

      Second: graphics 4 Star? Wtf this game has 60fps on consoles is huge difference that other games
      Gpu on consoles are preatty week. Sorry to say but is the reality. Having a game at 60fps on 1080p is a miracle of k.p and looks amazing since gz. This guy’s doesn’t even know what he’s talking

      Third: they didn’t even finish all the side missions ( wow really good professional review right?

      And 4 back in 2007 they give metal gear solid 4 an 8.5

      I hate to see stupid journalism like this. They win money and didn’t even do their job right

      • Connor Nelson

        they didnt say its perfect because it isnt. nothing is, its a hypothetical thing that major outlets give to games with big followings to make everyone happy. they might take their metric seriously. Alot of the stuff you said you cant back up either because nobody has seen the game except media

      • NakedSnake85

        Mgs1 – 10/10
        Mgs2 – 9/10
        Mgs3 – 9.5/10
        Peace Walker 9/10
        Mgs4 8/10

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          Is that your reviews or Their reviews ?

          • NakedSnake85

            its my opinion !

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            wtf. So you are one behind this review XD

          • NakedSnake85

            haha nope ! : p

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I’m not mad about the score. I’m mad their review is not complete . Is not professional . They go full rush just to gave their review faster and this is not how you work as a professional journalist . All games are 10 for me is their own way

          • Connor Nelson

            Do we even know that its the published review in full? it could be a leaked rough draft

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            They already gave wierd scores to AAA amazing games . The review is real

          • Connor Nelson

            I dissagree. I think 8.5 is a really high score. for some reason 10 means its great and 7 means average in this day and age. I personally think 10 is a hypothetical perfect score, something nothing will ever achieve, but gets handed out to games with big fan bases for clicks. They might just be non biased and have journalistic integrity.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            So you think a 8.5 review without side – missions without the true ending and rushing all the game just to finish the main story line is a good review? ok whatever . i’m talking about facts

          • Connor Nelson

            You arent talking about facts because all of this is speculation.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            You are the scpetical here . they have a good amount of history records of their reviews . Is not speculation they gave that score with preatty much nothing finish in the game . I read all the article with a friend who speak french. If you don’t like what im saying no problem. But come at me talking about facts

          • Connor Nelson

            Speculation: the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence.

            played mgsv? No? Ok, were done here.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            haha you don’t what you are talking about . I’know more than you think and this is review is 100% BS . see ya

          • NakedSnake85

            “Your argument reminds me the scene when big boss forced a diamong dog to stab him” so please stop arguing over a review.. We all get to play TPP and we will decide on our own. A review cannot and must not take away from anyone the pleassure of playing the last game of the saga ; ) its been 3 long years waiting and we r so close ! peace : )

          • No Place For Hayter

            Even still I love picking sides on my mind but not saying anything unless someone gets under my skin.

          • Connor Nelson

            plz show me the facts, ive been looking for spoilers

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            This are the same Guys who made the preview, Yong yea was talking and they complain about the most silly things . Seems everyone forget about it . Do more research before typing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZInpN4yx3K4

          • NakedSnake85

            i agree with you for 1-3.. Mgs4 was not good.. it had 2-3 incredible moments but not that good overall

          • Connor Nelson

            The gameplay in 4 was amazing though, the rebel system, different forms of camouflage, the multiple routes through maps. For 2008 it was pretty revolutionary.

          • NakedSnake85

            i agree.. but
            not much gameplay
            plot was absolutely ridiculous.. as i said 2-3 incredible moments intresting concepts but not that great overall.

          • Connor Nelson

            The game is average lengh for mgs, with options that give you more replayability and more possibilities for a longer campaign. I think the shadow moses level alone has 2 to 3 pretty damn good moments, the only game at the time with a more complex weapon customization system was ghost recon future soldier (feel free to correct me) and that game looked like dookie.

          • NakedSnake85

            your verdict for mgs4?

          • Connor Nelson

            prolly 8.5 in 2015
            (graphics and sound aside), 9 in 2008. Fan service as hell, but if your just joining the party and suspend disbelief, its a pretty wacky and yet emotional ride. I also watched all the cut-scenes before i played the game so i could skip them at my leisure because 8 hours of cut-scenes is ridiculous.

          • No Place For Hayter

            The camouflage system was ruined by the free octo-camo cheat of a system.

          • Ottomansmack

            Olso graphics even after 7 years game looks amazing

      • No Place For Hayter

        The graphics are a stone cold fact. Giving it less than 5 stars renders the rest of their review pointless as they can’t wrap their heads around simple facts let alone the subjective nature of a game review.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          Exactly dude . Where did you see games running at 1080p 60fps on these days ? Where did you see face caption with AAA actors who feels alive . Graphics are not just nice shadows . Graphics make the world alive and Tpp is breath living world . This are facts like you said . This review has so much incoherence

          • No Place For Hayter

            Even the PC version has high end graphics, lol.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Now we just need to wait those feminist journalist hating Quiet boobs or violence . Rating 7/10 too much Skin XD

          • No Place For Hayter

            Those kind of people can’t write reviews, just slander and hate pieces.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I truely feel this will be one of my true last games. After Tpp i will shill out and wait for new things quietly . Videogaming industry is changing for the worst. Developers are afraid to make their games as they want due to the bad media and extremist People who are waiting to destroy their ideas . Why the hell we need to close our minds for people like this ? Kojima believe in videogames as Art and other believes in Money .

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, lol, don’t get me started on the current industry, lol, I used to play a lot of games, but I play much less now.

    • Connor Nelson

      The review isnt what i would expect of a tripple a game, i expect kotaku, ign, yong, mgi, the internet to have very long, very detailed reviews. Honestly it felt either like a thesis, a rough draft, or maybe a blurb in some posh magazine.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Watchdogs 19/20 by JeuxVideo Magazine.
      Mgsv : The phantom pain 17/20 haaaaaaaaaaahahhahahahahaah . Seems legit

      • BurntFM

        hahahahaha I knew they had Zero credibility. What a joke of a Magazine

      • Connor Nelson

        watchdogs got a 18

    • Ottomansmack

      No offence but anybody buying a game for review scores is a complete dumbass and joaquin’s post prove my point

      • BurntFM

        LOL who cares about reviews. Everything that has come from respected media outlets have been nothing but good impressions about the game and here comes this one guy who we need to point out is the odd man out.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          I’m with you but i care from the standpoint of MgsV marketing with the whole work by K.P. They do not deserve bad scores with no real Facts. MGS franchise is one of the most hated in the media too. We would play the game no matter what. But i feel that is perfectly correct grab the sword and chield and defend this shitty movements

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, if you are to criticize or point out flaws, you can’t do it half heartily in a review, you have to know what you are talking about, and with reasons and facts behind it.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Do not forget this are the guys who made the preview we where talking about some weeks ago. The guy whine of Mother base – Side missions or the long trip with beautiful environment. This was the only journalist who made a “bad preview ” in that time . When i saw the review i was like ” ohh this guys XD “

        • Ottomansmack

          I know but am talking about some idiots just lookin at the score and be like “hey random guy on internet play this game and gave a bad score so this means its a bad game” crap

          • BurntFM

            See even in that case. If most of the reviews were to give a game a bad score, I would be careful if I’m going to spend money(which games are not cheap) on said game. But I agree with what you say, but I don’t think it applies here though. I’m sure here at MGI we’re buying the game even if it tells mama jokes to our face. We’re getting it.

          • Connor Nelson

            They didnt give it a bad score though.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Keep defending brother ! . Watch dogs is a masterpiece lol

          • Connor Nelson

            yeah they shat on mgsv… they also gave watchdogs a 16, then an 18 in a redaction

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Did you work there ? Why the lies lol.. I’m not taking you seriously anymore dude =)
            19/20

          • Connor Nelson

            http://www.jeuxvideo.com/jeux/jeu-79064/ I dont speak the language, i just know what redaction means

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            GOD dude this are other reviewers hhahahahahahahahh .oh dear

          • Connor Nelson

            Im not sure what your point is. Other than mgsv cant get a lower score than a game you dont like and i have no understanding of french and that makes me ignorant, which im ok with

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I’m not mad with you dude is all right . But if you want to argue with something do some research nothing more . You where wrong and is okey

          • Connor Nelson

            I never implied you were mad. I implied you made a presumption and you are convinced its a fact, then you claimed they gave the game a poor review and i disagreed with partial missinformation

          • Ottomansmack

            Yes it is watch dogs 19 and mgs 5 17…. am more fun with that ground zeroes than boring dogs game olso my point isn’t about score just like my other post said it problem is some people look at the score if its higher:omg its amazing epic win bro!! But its not noooo this game sucks its should be 2020 fail

          • Connor Nelson

            It makes alot of sense if your not a metal gear fan. I can see coming into mgsv without any previous knowledge making it overwhelming. im not defending watchdogs

          • Ottomansmack

            No it isn’t games are personal tastes my first mgs game was mgs4 and based on that site its only 85 but for me it was the best game on ps3 you should play yourself olso not only newcomers some people already be like no after all waiting this game must be good https://mobile.twitter.com/NkDragunov/status/634389984368271360

          • Connor Nelson

            why did you say no, are you saying nobody can not enjoy mgsv?

          • Ottomansmack

            No am just saying people give too much credit those critics and they think game is fail or masterpiece and no not talking about newcomers mgs fans too they already start complain just for some stupid french magazine score

          • Connor Nelson

            I agree

          • No Place For Hayter

            Maybe, Kojima does make his games pretty isolated, you could play any MGS game without knowledge of the other games and you would be just fine, granted you would get more from them if you played the rest but that is simply icing on the cake, the games stand by themselves, even MGS4 (Though that one was designed to work with the other games unlike the rest of the MGS series).

          • Connor Nelson

            But, and i think the community is proof of this, there are the fans of metal gear, and then there are people who have played a metal gear game and it just never clicked for them.

          • No Place For Hayter

            What do you mean “never clicked for them”?

          • Connor Nelson

            the people who play mgs games and move on like its nothing special

          • No Place For Hayter

            That is just personal opinion of the people whom play the game.

            Person plays MGS – Loves it – becomes a fan
            Person plays MGS – thinks it’s meh – doesn’t become a fan

            This process though has nothing to do with the isolated nature of Kojima’s MGS games, unless there is a connection I missed >.<

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Yes. 90% of gamers who played metal gear solid games becomes fans . I’ve never meet a guy who play one and said is okay. Or you become a fan or you hated . There few few peoples in the middle

          • Connor Nelson

            My point is that the people who like you say play the game isolated and have a good time are more than likely going to check out the other games in the series, and there is an equal chance of someone to just say its not for them and move on.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Oh, ok, agreed.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            He thinks jeux video magazine is the same journalist as jeuxvideo and their are not but he would not listen friend

          • Connor Nelson

            I never dissagreed with you about the magazine vs the website, I dont speak french and yes, thats how it works where i live. The game informer review in the magazine is usually the same on their website

    • JJBYACH

      He gave TPP a 17/20, that’s 85%! How is that a bad score? All his complaints are valid from the perspective of a non MGSV’s fan who in his preview article was very critical of the game, I thought he would give it 6 or 7 out of 10 based on his preview impressions, that alone must mean the game is great.

  • Xilurm

    I don’t have a PS4 yet so I’ll probably get the game on PS3. I haven’t really been in touch with lots of stuff so I just wanted to ask.

    Are the differences between cross-gen only graphical like resolution and FPS or are there any features cut from the PS3 version?

    • Connor Nelson

      graphical, load times, higher possibility for crashes (Ok that last one might just be me, but my ps3 would crash playing some of the later games released in its life cycle, but it was from 2009 to 2014 and i didnt take the best care of her)

    • Ravenous

      As far as I know, only graphical, don’t think there’s any difference whatsoever between the different versions of the game apart from visuals, control-scheme and pricetag 🙂

      • Xilurm

        Nice, thanks! I don’t mind the graphical stuff and load times but I was worried it would have some big feature cut just like Dragon Age Inquisition did.

    • vic boss

      They said before that MGO in ps3 won’t feature 16 players , I believe it was an smaller number but I don’t remember the exact amount.

      • Connor Nelson

        12 i believe it was

    • FZJanimated

      Just resolution ,FPS , draw distance , Graphics and in MGO instead of 16 players , i think is going to be around 10-12 . but in content is basically the same ,but expect less enemies soldiers and that kind of things

    • MrVux007

      the only MAJOR difference will be FPS performance…everything else is pretty much the same 🙂

  • what makes me more happy about all of this is that it shows how much the site is growing. the difference between now and a couple of years ago is a lot. congratulations nyxus! and good for crimsonfox to get the chance to play a lot of the game earlier!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah. ( ‘ ‘ )-b

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Agreed! You´re finally getting rewarded for your good work!

    • This is awesome!

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Where is cipher ?? Where is zero !!! XD

  • Connor Nelson
    • BurntFM

      WTF is going on. This is pandemonium!!!! There’s just so much drama going on with this release I’m sitting here like……..Should I unplug my modem? Or should I read every little piece of news every hour of every day.

      • Connor Nelson

        Leave it to people like me. i have gotten out of bed to bathroom and mow the lawn. If i get sore, i roll over and take my laptop or ipad with me

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Ohhh no… Please keep MGI spoilerfree!
      This is our heaven!!

      • No Place For Hayter

        And our hell.

        • BurntFM

          There’s another

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I would love to score the game with fiddles . The phantom pain 10/10 : The fiddling Master piece

          • WrongDirectionZ

            So you´re saying the fiddle is the weapon to surpass metal gear…
            Now things finally make sense to me ^^

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            beethoven Gear confirmed !!

          • WrongDirectionZ

            LOL ^^ BEETHOVEN IS WITH CIPHER

      • Connor Nelson

        I will only link to places where spoilers are found, never will i ruin this for someone. as for this dude in particular, he says he is leaving it sealed

        • WrongDirectionZ

          Thanks bro!

          • Connor Nelson

            … but the place he bought it from was just selling them like a normal item, he didnt have to do anything sleezy to get it

          • WrongDirectionZ

            Oh man those retailers are so annoying… Its italian right?

          • Connor Nelson

            It appears so

  • BurntFM
  • vic boss

    So idk if there was a poll before but I wanted to ask all of you. For you which snake its the best snake ? Naked Snake (Big Boss) or Solid Snake?

    It is a tough one but for me I’ll go with big boss. I think he went through a lot in his life and he did what he thought was right based on what he learned from the boss. Solid Snake its also a great character believe me I like both of them , but I prefer big boss a little bit more than solid snake.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Naked Snake 🙂 he is a more personal adventure so I’m more tied to the original, also he is the original 😉

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        ..

    • WrongDirectionZ

      I go for BB too. Hes a bit more emotional than solid snake.
      And the whole story about the boss and him is so friggn thrilling.
      All this suffer… a real phantom pain

    • NakedSnake85

      Naked
      Solid
      Liquid
      Solidus
      Venom :p

      • No Place For Hayter

        I hope you aren’t leaving this after you play TPP, lol.

    • MichaelPayneV

      John. Nuff said!

    • War Games Via Live Bullets

      Big Boss as a character might be more interesting since his creator made a rich history for him where lots of tales can be told. In that aspect, I suspect many (including myself) will “like” him best because of the many interesting stories available. However, I think Solid Snake is the best because he always seemingly chooses to do the right thing. I rather follow in the footsteps of Solid Snake than Big Boss.

  • NakedSnake85

    when is the new trailer coming out?

    • Connor Nelson

      kojima says its almost done so i immagine its coming in the next 3 or 4 days. I hope the english trailer comes shortly after

      • No Place For Hayter

        Didn’t Kojima call it the “launch trailer”?

        • Connor Nelson

          No, you can go check his twitter.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Ok, thanks.

    • No Place For Hayter

      What Connor said, in the next few days, after all it has to come out before the game gets released, lol. Also one of the teaser shots said “coming september 1st” not “already available” so we will see it before September 1st.

    • Chem

      maybe on Kojimas birthday?

  • No Place For Hayter

    I have this syndrome of not being able to play any games after playing a really good one. About a year ago I played a few great games in a row (I planned playing them in a row, and know they were all good before hand) and I’m still recovering from that, lol, usually it takes about a month or two for me to play games again after playing a good one. A good game really gets stuck on my mind A LOT. I think I’m going to be a really big unresponsive mass after TPP, lol.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Is like Good cocaine vs Shity Cocaine brother. There is no Going back XD

    • MichaelPayneV

      I know the feeling, Hitman Absolution and Sleeping Dogs!

    • Tyler Torgersen

      Lately I seem to buy a game, play it for a couple days, then go right back to the games I truly love.. Its unfortunate how much money I feel I waste on this:(

    • ddmaster

      I don’t know if it’s the same thing but I’m kinda like that after I watch a really good movie in the theater.

    • Chem

      i feel you bro, i have the same syndrome, in fact, i can’t even play anything the week before of the release of that great game, qwith TPP the syndrome have intensified, i mean, i’m not even motivated to play anything that is not MGS

    i think the time has come comrades.
    im going into mediablackout for the last few days i would so love to keep chatting and hyping us to the max but i have a feeling one of these days im gonna read something that cant be undone for me and this game is too important for me to risk it. i left my information in the list everybode on PS4 feel free to add me so we can play together and think about forming an mgo clan when the time comes. gonna kill the last days with dark souls even tho i’ve spent like 500+ hours on the souls series already lol. i’m already excited to return to MGI when the game is out and whe all can go crazy about it together!
    see you on the other side brothers!

    PS: please dont judge me if i’m weak and post something before rls xD

        Off-topic but I always wonder why Kaz hasn’t got a prosthetic arm and leg like Snake did with his lost arm? Is there any explanation for it in trailers or interviews?

        • JJBYACH

          It’s due to the location of where Kaz’s arm was severed. BB’s only lost the majority of his forearm so the prosthetic arm is able to manipulate the tendons in his forearm to move his fingers and hand, Kaz on the other hand as completely lost his arm, so Kaz will have no way use any muscles in his arm to manipulate the prosthetic arm.

    Thank you all for what you do. I’ve been following the site daily for around a year now and you’ve all made the wait far more tolerable and kept me sane! Or possibly you’ve contributed to my MGS obsession and made a peaceful wait turn to 24/7 thoughts of TPP! Haha either way, just wanted to show my appreciation! Thanks again!

      PS- Here is a video of me drunk on whiskey, wanting a cassette tape badly and committing vehicular manslaughter.

    This guy is totally right, if you feel that you are going to get spoiled, then is the least worse to see the Spoiler and feeling emotions instead of hearing it, and feeling nothing!
    So if you feel that you will get spoiled no matter what, then watch Greg Miller’s Review, again, is less worse to experience it than hearing it!

    I don’t understand people who say that if Venom Snake is Gray Fox, that they will be done and get mad.

    People, Every Story, whether is a Book, Video Game, Movie or TV Series is about the facts of the events themselves, as is abouthow and why these things are Fact, and most of all if is a Visual Story with Actors a Writter and a Director, then all that matter is how the subject is handled, the subject itself doesn’t matter that much.

    Done ranting.

    I don’t understand people who say that if Venom Snake is Gray Fox, that they will be done and get mad.

    People, Every Story, whether is a Book, Video Game, Movie or TV Series is not as much about the subject, as is about how and why it happaned the way it did, and most of all if is a Visual Story with Actors a Writter and a Director, then all that matters is how the subject is handled, the subject isn’t as relevant as the way is handled.

    Conclusion: The way something is handled is what brings you joy and Entertainement, not the Subject itself!

    Done ranting.

    Guys remember Kojima born in august 24th . Lets make a party with fiddles here when the day comes !!

  • G Yoh Aquino

    “Hobby Consolas (Spanish Magazine) Rates MGSV 97/100”

    NINETY-FUCKING-SEVEN!!!

    The Witcher 3 got 95…

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      LET THE HYPE COME BACK TO LIFE!!!!!!!!!! I SAY IT IN SPANISH : VIVA KOJIMA!!!!
      dude can you give me the link?

      • G Yoh Aquino
        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          I can do some translate for you guys . Did you want ?

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Oh shitt i have the pictures.. Is real Folks !!. Im grabing a coffe and start to translate here

          • Danny Patten

            You da real MVP :*

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            The first line of the review is : A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME

            – THE GREATEST STEALTH GAME IN THE HISTORY OF GAMING
            – AFGHANISTAN AND AFRICA ( 2 LOCATIONS BUT BIGGER THAN YOU THINK)
            -QUIET HAS THE MOST INTERESTING STORY IN THE WHOLE GAME
            -157 SIDE OPS
            – GAMEPLAY IS BETTER THAN BEFORE
            – PS4 RUNS AT 60FPS WITHOUT A SINGLE FRAME DROP
            -THIS GAME HAD SOME( CONTROVERSIAL ) SCENES THAN THE MEDIA WILL TALK FOR YEARS

            THE WRITTER LOVES THE STORY BUT HE THINKG IS SLOW PACED AND NOT SO AMAZING LIKE OLD ENTRIES – THERE ARE FEW BOSSES AND THE ENDING DO NOT RESOLVE ANY OF HIS QUESTIONS .. HE IS A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED FROM BEEN A MGS CORE FAN

            GAMEPLAY : 10
            MUSIC : 10
            LENGTH = 10
            STORY = 9

            Well this is it folks… I’m still thinking it could be a ” Secret ending ” in the game and maybe that is why reviewers are a little confuse . We heard the same thing with the french magazine but overall HOBYCONSOLAS Think this is one of the greatest games ever .

            DID YOU RIKET IT ? =)

          • Ravenous

            Very interesting that so far nobody has liked the ending of MGSV because it isn’t conclusive enough…but Yongyea posted this on twitter during his Q&A: “@Clickery21 I’m playing the final build minus the ending, so yes, some minor changes and adjustments.”

            Funny how both the French and the Spanish (or are the South American?) apparently missed the fact that they don’t actually have the ending of the story in the build they are/were playing XD

            Thanks for translating it though, much appreciated 🙂

          • Tong Ninja

            Thanks for the translations! 😀
            About the fewer boss fights … is it because the other boss fights are optional (in side-ops)?? Maybe they didn’t encountered them all.
            Also the ending, didn’t Konami say that everyone who are playing the earlier version of TPP will not contain the ending?? They will review the game but without playing the ending.

    I’m also not sure I’ll receive my CE from EB Games on release day, even with express shipping. I haven’t ordered much from that site and I’ve noticed going through past pre-orders that most were delivered the day after release. So that’s what I’m expecting as long as the carrier actually delivers the package instead of being a fuckhole by leaving a notice to pick it up the next day instead.
