  • N-Shifter

    Love the Mad Max reference at the end 🙂

    • Ishmael

      That movie was suprisingly great!

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Here is the translation made by myself of HOBBYCONSOLAS review 97/100
    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 : 99
    MUSIC : 99
    LENGTH = 97
    ENJOYMENT= 95

    97/100

    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 BY french magazine but overall HOBYCONSOLAS Think this is one of the greatest games ever .

    SORRY I MISS ONE LINE :

    THIS IS THE GAME OF THE YEAR . THIS COULD BE THE GAME OF THE DECADE. THE FOX ENGINE IS A MIRACLE OF TECHNOLOGY

    DO NOT PANIC ABOUT THE STORY IS AMAZING AND IT WILL BE IN THE MIND OF FANS FOR THE TIME TO COME

    I DO NOT EDIT ANYTHING. EVERY LINE YOU SEE WAS QUOTE BY HOBBYCONSOLAS

    DID YOU RIKET IT ? =)

    • MrVux007

      did they mention how many total hours did they have?

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        They didn’t go into specifics. This website always do their reviews with out spoilers or specifics details

        They said the game is huge in terms of details and side missions are great too.

        Gameplay and music is perfect. He explains the balance on the game is perfectly design. He also Praise the Fox engine like truelly miracle ( that catch my eyes)

        The only cons he mentioned are the story which get me worries. but my hope is maybe the review build doesn’t include a “Secret ending ” or maybe they didn’t find it
        He still Praise the game like one of the best

        • Elias David Gill

          They said the story should be 40 hours to complete and that isn’t even 50% of the game

        • Kol Leqejza

          it’s all about revenge. plain & simple. maybe not that pretentious as the ones before. i could live with it.

    • Shalashaska

      Peace walker so many damn endings after the story ending.. im hoping that is the same case here but dammit Kojima better not have ended it at a cliff hanger man :/

    • Gatsu

      The story can feel different because of open world style and we have to put the story together slowly, as Kojima said. With linear you constantly run to some cutscene. But I’m sure it will be mind blowing story :). Can’t wait!

      PS I heard something like the ending being removed from some reviewers or maybe I remember the info wrong :).

      • Cobra Commander

        Didn’t Crimsonfox say his session with V in LA had the ending removed?

    • dr_gonzo355

      Hard to believe him because I know for a fact the game drops below 60fps at times. Hmmm.

    • Cipher

      what he said about the story…
      I bet It’s because he hasn’t listened to tapes

      GZ story was also not clear … until you hear the tapes

      • Kol Leqejza

        decipher the cipher.

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED!

    • Chem

      good job bro, i wanto to read the original article, does it have any story spoiler on it? gracias!

    • Kol Leqejza

      157 side-ops? ur serious?! that would be awesome!

  • Cesare Di Maio

    i can post a bit more if you want spoilers

  • Golgari

    NO SPOILERS!

    • Cesare Di Maio

      thats why i just posted the maps and asked first

      • Golgari

        Don’t ask. Don’t post maps here or screenshots and stuff please.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          Who the fuck made you mod?

        • dr_gonzo355

          Isn’t there a topic for such things? I’ve never been here but it’s called MG Informer, right? Like information. I would love to see a map.

          • Gatsu

            You will see it all, in 10 days. 🙂

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      WTF!!

      • Gatsu

        I missed what happened. But no need to be wtf-surprised, we have a strong no-spoiler rule in here. That is all.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I said wtf because he was too angry just for map but I’ve fuxking enough of these muthafucking spoilers on this muthafucking plane

          • Gatsu

            Well perhaps others don’t want to see them. Have you thought of that?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Just ask the guy to delete his mess and finished.he wasted his time through a comment

          • Danny Patten

            man, relax…

      • Gatsu

        Calm down bro…Nyxus made him a mod over year ago. Don’t make me do something nasty to you. Relax.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          You’re gonna dig into my guts for a bomb or are you going to ban me?juts be straightforward big boss 88 . I know what I wat talking when I called you the most sympathetic guy here !

          • Gatsu

            I am trying here but you don’t need to go rage like that to Golgari, who I respect and is only doing his job. It’s not easy for us when TPP is so close and spoilers gonna be everywhere… this is the toughest part of our mod time. Many fans want to experienceTPP without knowing too much.

            Please understand that I’m not trying to be some asshole. Just trying to follow orders I was given long time ago and keep the place nice, no swearing towards others etc.

          • MrVux007

            Im starting to get worried here a bit…but i will have to “not visit” the site anyways…i just want to enjoy it while it lasts “spoiler free” site…. good luck to you and other moderators : /

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Some scene to be different in the jap version of tpp launch trailer because of violence

          • Gatsu

            You’re right about that :D, just read some info of it too.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            I am too much short tempered which is the reason I will be using cardboard box a lot in tpp despite criticizing it but trap music can calm me down

          • Gatsu

            Sry if I sounded mad somehow :P. just had a tiring day at work lol. :(…

        • glitchbomb

          Uh oh. Unleash FURIOUS GATSU!! >. <

    • Gatsu

      Yes what Golgari said. Don’t do it please, the game is so close and I don’t need to see or know all before it come.

      If have a strong desire to show something, keep it to yourself instead or share privately to someone who wanna know if really have to 🙂

      • Solid PhoeniX
        • glitchbomb

          BWAHAHAHA

      • Chriss Kama

        I agree….PLEASE DON’T SPOIL ANYTHING AT ALL. WE WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING AS SOON AS WE PLAY THE GAME AND FIND OUT FOR OURSELVES.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I truly hope you guys do not get atacked by spoilers — Is not fair that the folks who guard this page be fucked by users who doesn’t understand we don’t want Spoilers. You guys are waiting the game like anyone else .

    • Oh my Kojima, people are posting spoiers HERE?! Well, looks like I’ll be avoiding the comment section from now on 😐

      • Gatsu

        No place is 100% safe in internet, but we try our best.

      • Ozzman

        We must go back to those days when people coudn’t talk about games with each other such these days on internet, there was days of game releasing with no internet and no spoilers… looks like we have to cut the net, when ur eyes contact to words like “someone will die at some place” the game is fucked up already, and you can’t live with that fucked up story, story that you suppose to discover every bit of it.
        So solution is cut the net, but who can?
        Personally I can’t wait for Hospital section of the game, I’m like Hospital scene vs rest of the game, and I choose Hospital scene

        • Yeah I’d probably favour the hospital scene too, since it seems to be action packed, but ofc I will enjoy the rest too 🙂

    • Chem

      posting spoiler here just make the wait much harder since MGI is the ONLY page i check frecuently to feed my need of metal gear content, so please don’t ruin this for me and for my comrads

    • S.D Plisken

          • Steven Michael Brown

      • ddmaster

        • Solid PhoeniX

          That Might help, only when I sit down to Play Tpp will I truly be happy

    • glitchbomb

      Damn….you must have been at your job for a while to accumulate 3 weeks.
      I had aquired a week but had to use up most of them recently.
      Now I have one day.
      So many tears. 🙁

      Luckily I am getting it @ midnight the day before so I can just go 24+Hrs straight.

      O.O

    • No Place For Hayter

      Lol, mine starts first week of September, I guess you will need that week before release, might get busy around here, lol, but at the same time kind of sucks.

      Not only do I need a vacation for TPP, but I need one for normal reasons as well, lol, feel like I’m going mad, I need a break, lol.

    • ddmaster

      Got off that tuesday through thursday.

  • Tamás Orosz

    Hi MGS fans! The release date is sooo close. I’m super excited so I edited a “launch trailer” myself. I know this is not connected to this post, but if you could check it out, and give me some feedback, it would mean a lot to me! 🙂

    • Andrea Feletti

      Very good! I like it

      • Tamás Orosz

        Thank you! 🙂 It means a lot to me!

    • Tong Ninja

      Cool! I enjoyed watching it. 🙂
      HYPE! haha

      • Tamás Orosz

        Thanks man! 🙂 This made the waiting less painful. But… I hope my pain is soon… going to be… just a phantom… 😀 😀 😀

    • Gatsu

      Hey there comrade, welcome to MGI <3.
      Your trailer is…pretty good!

      • Tamás Orosz

        I didn’t expect such a heart warming welcome! 🙂 But then again, this is the Metal Gear community we are talking about. This is one of the most amazing and awesome of all gaming communities. Thank you for your kind words! 🙂

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

      Loved the trailer, liked the haunting skull face stuff at the start the most (love his speech in GZ, lol) definitely has an excited launch trailer vibe it it ( ‘ ‘ )-b

      • Tamás Orosz

        I’m really glad that you liked it! 🙂 It’s amazing that our mutual love for this game unites so many people across the globe. It feels good to belong to the relatively few, but passionate MGS fans. Again, thanks for watching it!

    • DarpaLT.Sigma_

      I freaking love this trailer!!! great job soldier

      • Tamás Orosz

        Thank you! 🙂

    • Sockerfri

      Dat wus syck, bru! I couldve sweared that was a trailer edited by Kojima Productions themselves!

      • Tamás Orosz

        It’s just a rearrangement of previous trailers. But thank you! 🙂 I’m glad you liked it!

  • Big Boss

    Hey guys, been on here for a long time now, but only just decided to join in in the comments. First of all, this community is amazing and I love reading all your comments and see the love for Metal Gear, which I can’t find anywhere else. Secondly, does anybody know where to pre-order the OST? I want it! Thirdly, I am extremely excited for MGS V and very lucky to be able to get the Limited Edition PS4 in its design. I’m sure the game won’t disappoint. Kojima never does anyway, so that is reason enough to be excited for it. Also, I work at GameStop in Switzerland and I have to say that the Metal Gear support here is low to non-existent and it makes me sad to constantly see these people asking about Call of Duty, Battlefield and Assassin’s Creed and all those annual mediocre titles. I’d like for them to appreciate better games. But I guess this way it remains very special to me 🙂 Love you all and have a great day.

    • Tong Ninja

      Welcome! 😀
      Which OST? the Vocal tracks or the TPP soundtrack?

      Tell those people, they are missing out on an amazing game! 😀
      You work at GameStop, so recommend it to people or force them to buy it haha.

      • Y Jebai

        Both, actually. I’d love to just have all that amazing music.
        Indeed they are and I do recommend it at any time I can, but everyone just seems to be interested in Call of Duty and Fifa and that general rubbish. Well, at least I’ll be the only onenof them who has the MGS V PS4 😀 1.5 weeks to go!!!

        • glitchbomb

          Man, you are one of the few I’ve seen on this site to get one!

          • Y Jebai

            It’s pure luck, really. When I came into work a few days ago I almost got a heart attack when I read that we’re getting a couple of them 😀 That’s the advantage of working at GameStop, haha.

          • glitchbomb

            Whaaa!!!?
            Damn…we never got any here.
            Hey! You being the only fan you get dibs on promo material though, right?!

            I have some stuff from GZ still
            Big thick posters and such.

        • Tong Ninja

          You can preorder the vocal tracks from here! Not sure about the TPP Soundtrack.

          haha 10 days left! 😀

          • NameUndecided

            The original soundtrack album is also recommended at the bottom of that page! 🙂

          • Tong Ninja

            XD thanks for that! haha 🙂

        • Tong Ninja

          You can preorder TPP OST on this link!

    • Gatsu

      Good to have you here :)!

    • glitchbomb

      WELCOME!
      I feel for you. I work at a gamestop in the states and deal with that stuff.
      Luckily we have enough preorders to do a midnight release on the 27th. (Its usually around 10, not midnight)

      • Y Jebai

        On the 27th? Gosh, that is brilliant! We don’t have enough for any console to do that. 28 in total across all platforms. Compare that to Call of Duty with its undeserved 72. Sad… so sad…

        • glitchbomb

          Whoa. Sorry. Not the 27th. Lol. The night before. The 31st. Lol
          I wish.

          • Y Jebai

            Yeah, that makes more sense, haha. That’d be the most amazing surprise ever!

    • Gray Lion

      Welcome to our ranks, brother! 🙂
      You got the special edition? You lucky dog, I tried to pre-order it everywhere here in Portugal but I was always a little too late. I wish GameStop would still be open for business here, we have virtually zero specialized video game shops in Portugal -____-

      • Y Jebai

        Ah shoot, that is incredibly frustrating! Our GameStop would actually not have gotten the special, but they somehow managed to get us a few, so I’m just very thrilled about that. I’m also hoping that the game gets released a day early as with so many other games nowadays, haha.

        • Gray Lion

          Here´s hoping, brother! The waiting is killing me! XD

          • Y Jebai

            You and me both, brother! When we get the games shipped next week I might just be too excited not to steal them, hahahaha.

    • Cobra Commander

      I feel for you brother!
      I have never been able to find a store around here that had a MGS midnight event.

      But all of them have midnight launches for Call of Doody, Battlefart, Assassins Crap, etc.
      Don’t get me wrong, I love COD World at War, Black Ops, and AC Black Flag.
      I just hate these cookie cutter futuristic fps games and most AC games all look the same and have crappy controls.
      I love me some WWII or Vietnam stuff and in AC Black Flag it was awesome being a pirate sailing the seas listening to your crew sing sea shanties.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome ( ‘ ‘ )7 a lot of people joining today and a lot of people going into blackout today, lol, a really big flow of traffic, lol. Great to have you with us 🙂

      • Y Jebai

        Glad to be here. The media blackout is impossible. I’m just trying to avoid reviews at this point. The hype is insane!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, no reviews for me either. I’m not only avoiding spoilers, but any knowledge of the game I don’t need to know until launch.

          • Y Jebai

            That and pre-influenced opinions from reviewers. I’d like to form my completely personal opinion and don’t need that spoiled by reviewers. Not that I think that it’s gonna get bad reviews. The wait will be so worth it!!

      • glitchbomb

        It is now obligitory!

  • Oh my god really…

    • Ocelot didn’t get possessed by an arm lol. I hate reviewers..

        Dumb ones, yeah.

      • GUN®

        He did in MGS2, so he removed it and swapped it with the prosthetic you see in MGS4.

        • Actually that is true. Then used psychotherapy to change himself to liquid to get away with getting big boss back.

    Here’s a translation of the full Spanish Review *Mild spoilers*

    http://pastebin.com/gvkBr2YS

  • S.D Plisken

    Hi , longtime lurker awesome site, stoked for the phantom pain, this game could get the worst review and I’m still buying it, but right now I’m dodging spoilers, how do I join the mgo list, cheers.

  • Chem

    my courier is charhing me 45$ for bring TPP game to my country, wtf? is almost the price of the game.

    • Danny Patten

      Where do you live? Oo

      • Chem

        Venezuela, im doing this because buying the game here is way too expensive, in the past i’va bought all my games in USA and then ship then here, but today my courier told me that this will cost 45$ wft? i used to pay like 7 or 10$, the shipping of the special edition of MG Rising costed me 25$ so how the hell TPP is going to cost more?

        • Danny Patten

          That sucks then. what would it cost in your own country compared to the US retail?

          • FZJanimated

            here in argentina in retail it cost 120 dollars one game ; A; , i think in venezuela is around 10-30 dollars , but consider that 1dollar = 150-240 bolivares, they pay for one game between 3000-7600 bolivares which is alot , the average worker wins between 2800-3900 bolivares. so to buy one game you have to lose all you money for one or two month.

          • Danny Patten

            wow, that is tough. I can’t imagine living like that. 🙁

          • FZJanimated

            me neither, i mean at least in argentina is not that bad the average worker wins 500-800 dollars so you can afford to buy 1-2 game each month , but in venezuela is basically save your money for a months to get one game and my friend say the food there is really expensive. 1kg of meat is 1500 bolivares ,which basically you can afford to eat 1 or 2 kg of meat for month ,which is nothing if you consider the average family have 3-5 members .

          • Chem

            For someone who is paid in Dollars is pretty cheap, like 23 $ but for me is pretty expensive since i get paid in “bolivares” my salary per month is way less than the cost of the game and i am a fucking lawyer… so it’s kinda complicated, in our country we have a currency control, that means that we can’t freely change our currency (bolivares) into dollars, so in case that we wanted to adquire dollars (that we need because in our country everything is produced in another countries and imported here later) each dollar means 700 “bolivares” wich is insanely expensive. Long story short, before the currency control were fully implemented, i managed to save some dollars exclusively for TPP, but now i’m strugglin’ with the shipping cost

  • S.D Plisken

    Really looking forward to Kojimas last video, gonna bring a tear to my eye, been playing metal gear since ps1, there is no game like it, gonna play this on ps4 first, then Xbox1, then PC, looking forward to hearing more from crimson fox and yong yea!

  • Niko

    Bros I am going dark now. Can’t risk reading any spoilers. It’s been a pleasure. Take care and avoid them no matter how tempted you are to look.

    Salute brothers in arms. 🙂

      Stay safe and see you next month :)…

  • solideater

    Well one benefit for Phantom Pain for me is that it made me read Moby-Dick novel.. 🙂

  • Justin Wentz

    Has anyone heard any rumblings about the OST being released on iTunes?

    • solideater

      Where did you heard it. I searched couldn’t find any..

      • Justin Wentz

        I haven’t heard anything. I was just asking if anyone else had. I’m really hoping for an iTunes release.

    • Tong Ninja

      Donna Burke said she’s contacting Kojima/Konami about this, I think haha. Hopefully we will know soon.

      • Justin Wentz

        oh good. Go Donna! You can do it!

    • NameUndecided

      I don’t even know if it’s getting any form of stateside or western release(?). I’ve searched around every so often for soundtrack release details the past couple of weeks, and have only seen the Japanese Amazon sales pages or the news announcements that link to them.

      I wonder this OST and the Vocal album are the only ones, or if there will be a non-original song compilation as well. Not that I need a third soundtrack; just want to know what to look out for.

    • NameUndecided

      Also, I read on one Metal Gear fan site a couple weeks ago (and I don’t want to go searching on other MG fan sites anymore so close to release), that the songwriter(?) had so many original tracks turned down by Kojima, and he/she wants to see about releasing an album of them at some point. But that’s probably a ways off and hypothetical at this time. But I want.

      • Justin Wentz

        That was Rika Muranaka in a recent interview. It would be interesting to hear that stuff but I think there’s next to no chance that it’s going to be released. I’m assuming she has no rights to any material developed for a Konami product. Konami would have to gives the thumbs up–which…just doesn’t seem like it would happen.

  • Mini gear

    Hey gatsu do you think I should go into hiding? My eyes would read faster then I could think which would ruin years of waiting exmp: >_> 20/20×9999 X-ray —-> “big spoiler”

    • Gatsu

      I’d recommend it. Just read some nasty tweet from JunkerHQ…goddamit. The last days will be hell ;(….

      • Mauricio Acosta

        I can confirm that the spoilers are indeed real. Very big stuff. People if you are planning to go dark… You should have yesterday! Get off now comrades!!

        • Gatsu

          Yeah…and the guide (which is out too early?) apparently contain some heavy stuff…run while you still can.

          We’ll meet again after some days next month, it’s ok if wanna go hiding.

            i allready been spoiled ! but it doesnt matter. it was my theory as well for over a year now.. expressed in yong yeas’and python selkans videos’ for over a year now.. Also there are spoilers out there and they are real so DO NOT click anyhing suspicious! : /

      • Ravenous

        Alright, gonna stay around untill I’ve seen Kojima’s last trailer, but after that I’m gone untill I’ve completed TPP’story Oo

        Good luck dodging the spoilers gentlemen, we’ll need it (‘.’)7

      • vic boss

        I feel sorry for you guys. I think that while I’ll be active here, I won’t check the comments that regularly like I did before. It is just too painful MGI it’s something I used to check everyday. So it will be painful and the waiting too.

      • Mini gear

        alright., see you on the other side boss :-:7 ( ill check back in for a quick visit near end and be back after some days of tpp

        • Gatsu

          Np :), I will come back online on PSN next week. Cya there :D. I’ve been quite busy for some days and especially on the weekend now so don’t have much time to visit hehe.

        • No Place For Hayter

          See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

  • I just wanted to say I finally pre ordered my PS4 version for TPP. See you all there!!

    • glitchbomb

      Awesome! See you on the battlefeild Gustavo!

  • Okay just wanted to throw this in….

    So what does everyone think is lodged in Big Boss’ head??

    Shrapnel of what??

    • NakedSnake85

      yes its steel and bones stuck into his skull

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I think its bone or helicopter roter

    • Cipher1986

      I believe in Yong’s preview he mentioned that its a mix of bone and metal shrapnel

    • FOX

      it’s a piece of fiddle

    • Ishmael

      it’s a big fat black cock.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    MAJOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS (as far as i can tell isnt bullshit)

    Ive been lurking around this site for a while now getting my MGSV fix, just wanted to thank everyone for their contributions and great job keeping this site Spoiler Free (the only site I trust).

    • Gatsu

      Well some good news again :), great to have another soldier here with us <3.

      "great job keeping this site Spoiler Free"

      So far, so good.
      *looks at the countdown timer* oh crap o_O

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    Why did I have to go to 4chan some asshole posted spoilers about boss battles and fucking twist.could be real and fake as well.could be real though! Go internet blackout now!

    • Gatsu

      Oh maan sorry to hear that ;(… net blackout isn’t such a bad idea. Hopefully 10 days go fast and you forget.

      I hope fans can stay off those sites and junker tweeted moments ago, that the guide has been leaked and it spoil some things…especially a part of TPP that you definitely don’t wanna know beforehand.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        Plus an image of Ishmael on the guide which confirms the reddit leak was true which means the strategy guide is fake.WTF! I wanna cut dat guys penis.he spoils ishmaels identity.why did the guide have to leak.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          + final boss and which boss we have to fight in which mission didn’t say anythng about skull face so could be fake again!

        • NameUndecided

          I know you’re just venting your frustration, but even when you’re trying to sound vague about it, it’s feeling like a quarter-step away from spoiling stuff and I have a feeling that people who know which “reddit” leak or strategy guide detail your referring to might not care for your “possibly confirming” those details. Could you please stop?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            WTF! You talking BOUT !

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Who removed mah fucking comment !

      • RJRO

        Gatsu if someone post a spoiler here you will deleit right?

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          Ofc I won’t post it since the spoilers are annoying and 4 chan would be interesting only if it was related to park chan wook another legend!

        • Gatsu

          Yes…but I’m not a superhero, lol :D.
          I mean I need to sleep etc… but that’s why I’m not alone.

          • RJRO

            Yeah i know you are made of flesh and bone, i´ll just stick to this site and the Yong videos. If i see someone posting a spoiler i´ll just flagit, that´s all i can do.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            If that 4 chan asshole come here don’t scroll if he says blood borne goty and mgsv is shit and something about final boss (can’t tell who ofc)

          • RJRO

            Let´s just say that some of those spoilers could be fake, i haven´t read anyone so far, just a quick read of a review from hobby consolas,but i´m pretty sure that nobody play the full game, Yong said it was the final version minus the ending.

        • Gatsu

          And if comes to the worst, will ban too.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        I think it’s fake coz many people say different things and they say that blood borne is goty and mgsv is shit and they confirmed the reddit leak but I’m crying.4chan is shit DONT GO THERE and fuck punctuations!

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        It spoils the fucking hospital part.HOSPITAL!

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        Thank u due to mods like u people have hope but got a lesson from advanced warfare and charlieintel I apologised but I got banned and I deleted my comments so I developed a deep cyber relationship with mgi so I won’t leak and if I do ban me forever . But I won’t spoil it I’m getting paranoid

    • willworkfortoys

      I don’t mind Spoilers though I understand people’s trepidation. My biggest advice would be to stay away from them because ‘confirmed’ basically means someone thinks its probably true and I’ve wasted way too much time reading through junk. I’ve read through all the spoiler information thus far that I can find and it is all still murky and questionable as hell. It also hasn’t made me any less excited about playing this game! Want to play!!!

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      At least I’m eating my favorite food calamari and today is Friday otherwise it would be cow dung and shit becoz of 4 chan! Worst sit ever !

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Dear god, did you just discover 4 chan? Well let me tell you, its the shithole of the internet, but a hot spot for leaked info

  • Sozuke

    I cant’ go dark. not with this game coming out. I have resorted to only coming here and watching yonyea video’s. BUT, if one person spoils anything…..I will find them and I will fulton them the nearest volcano.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I would stay away from YouTube’s comment section if you dare to go there, lol, unfortunately I have enforced a no youtube policy, which kind of sucks since I will miss the rest of Yong’s count down, oh well >.<

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    NEVER GO TO 4chan not only people spoil things but the design itself is shit!

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    I got something spoiled for me from the guide thanks to a lack of spoiler tagging 🙁

    I don’t know what to think anymore. I’m going to lock down for real this time.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Where? 4chan? Bout Ishmael? If yes me too

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        No, something else, but it was completely idiotic. Like, worse than Chico = Quiet level shit. I don’t know what to believe anymore, it doesn’t seem like Kojima would do something like this but then again I don’t know.

        • glitchbomb

          WORSE than that? Yikes.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            YEAH. Be VERY, VERY cautious. If not worse than that theory it’s at the very least that bad.

    • NameUndecided

      Yeeeeesh. Guys. Even the talk of spoilers when some of you are trying to sound vague about them feels extra spoilery to me. I think it’s time for me to let this site go. :-/

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Yeah, that’s kinda how I feel sadly. I’ve been saying for a few days that I’ll go dark but this is seriously it for me. No more /r/metalgearsolid or anything for me. Also staying away from non-trusted Twitter sources and such. I hesitated when typing this in case people felt this way but I think it’s important to let people realize how serious the stuff we’re dealing with it. I would strongly advise going dark. All I might do is look at review scores and maybe Greg Miller’s playthrough but likely not.

        • glitchbomb

          See you on the other side!

        • NameUndecided

          Can you tell me if the guide you’re talking about is the Piggyback book? I have that arriving on the 1st.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            its not, its the standard strategy guide, paper back

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            Apparently so, it was a fan translation of it so I’m not trusting it 100% yet but I wouldn’t go looking for spoilers.

          • NameUndecided

            Aww shiizzzz. Of course I’m not going to look at mission or game-story details until I’ve already passed that section for the first time. But I guess I might have to be more careful than that, even. Thanks for the heads up. 🙂

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            Yeah, no problem. I should have known to stay away from a spoiler discussion even if everything was supposed to be tagged.

        • Tong Ninja

          What about Kojima’s last launch trailer?

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            That too, yes. I will be watching the launch trailer.

  • Matthew Theroff

    10 days and I will laugh and grow fat!

  • J_muse72

    Here’s to you Kojima, for working so hard to provide your fans the greatest game ever, no matter what your working conditions are, you care so much about us, we will never forget you and you will always have us on your side.

  • Matthew Theroff

    also if anyone posts spoilers they will or put to a vigorous torture process and don’t even think about using auto-fire because I will know.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I tried linking to spoilers and the comment was deleted, mods are on their game today.

      • Matthew Theroff

        I am happy for that I want to be surprised at this game.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          And i respect that, but only you can choose to click a link, I wasnt copy pasting translated strategy guide blurbs or… other stuff

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    On august 31 im going to start adding people off the MGI user list to my psn friends list, and i will be on the night it releases into the next day

  • TheGame1083

    this is off topic guys, anyone know where I can find or download the PS4 GZ cover with BB and Kaz on the cover??

  • Tong Ninja

    I feel so lucky that I haven’t seen any spoilers/leaks so far!! 😀 Strong willpower!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Just stay here safe and sound, and quickly stop reading anything that seriously talks about TPP and you should be good, it has gotten me this far, lol.

    • ddmaster

      Excellent! Just hang in there a little longer.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Point of clarification, did kojima say that big boss was only in one coma? Was that real or bunk?

  • Gatsu
    • FOX

      Yeah so he could play it in 1080 60fps,lol

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      on this note, i was talking to my friend who works for a gamestop in tennesse, and he says the copies of mgsv are under a level of security he has never seen before for a pre release game at gamestop. (hes been working there about 2 years)

      That was awesome, but i would switch “The witcher 3” for “Bethesda” and vice versa.

    • ddmaster

      Totally f***ing ridiculous…I love it.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    This is what the reddit is showing

    Leak status 21/08: The leaked guide (the one in Italian) has been confirmed to be partly (or mostly, completely?) fake.

    Not sure how they know this

    • solideater

      Playing us like a damn fiddle…

  • thetrooper1989

    There will be hell to pay if North Korea starts a war with the United States before I get a chance to play The Phantom Pain. I’m too out of shape to be drafted.

    • Gatsu

      I need to build underground shelter, where I can play my TPP in peace if something like nukes gonna fly.

  • ddmaster

    Any news if the MGSV OST and/or the Vocal Tracks cds will be released in the west? God I need it.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Yes. I cant link you because its with a shit ton of spoilers, but it exists and its coming. Disk 2 contains we are not your people, nuclear, and other promotional music and GZ music, the only thing i remember off disk one is a spoiler. I know its coming west because i only speak english and the track listings were all in english.

  • JJBYACH

    According to this on instagram Konami are sending reviewers special copies(probably boot camp version) of TPP for their review. Which is really weird if so and makes me really hyped for whatever Kojima is so adamant on hiding (the ending early critics are complaining aboutl) from everyone until the game is released, potentially damaging the critical acclaim of his own magnum opus to prevent spoilers for us fans (assuming this is the boot camp version).

    https://instagram.com/p/6oVlXJIRZ3/

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Critics or critic?

      lets face it, if your going to get mgsv tpp youve made your mind up by now.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I think by special they mean the 100% Game with The Ending, you can’t make a Review based on a Game without the ending!

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Yes you can, every outlet did with batman arkham knight. I also believe only one journalist said they didnt like the ending, but they also didnt believe there was much narrative at all

        • MichaelPayneV

          And they were right, Arkham Knight plot was, meh!

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            i should have seperated those two statements.
            They didnt get the true ending in arkham knight

            The only journalist who has said anything about the ending of TPP, as far as i know, was the journalist everybody has written off already.

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah probably, but it does seems weird to use a memory stick and not send physical copies that are already been made and distributed, which is why I think the stick contains the boot camp version of the game. I wouldn’t put it past Konami, they did set up a review boot camp for journalists…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Or it could just be the PC version finally being finished!

          • JJBYACH

            Why would they send a review copy an early review of the PC version?No one does that.

          • MichaelPayneV

            For Jorunalists to review the PC version, journalists that only review games on PC like Total Biscuit?

          • JJBYACH

            Does he get early PC review copies? Well I only watch some of his WTF is series and it seems he does them after the game has been released – and on a separate note, I doubt Konami will give early review copies to the little (independent) guys who are not a part of large news corporations, instead they get invited to the review event, and must buy the game on release to experience the full game.

    • BurntFM

      I think there will be a special easter egg mission after the ending. Kind of like Peace Walker

      • FZJanimated

        probably i think is another peace walker situation. reviewers only got to chapter 4 ,but there is something special you have to do to trigger chapter 5 like in peace walker.
        i hope is that and not a rushed bad ending 😛

      • Chem

        maybe theres a secretc chapter at the end, just like the final chapter in PW after Zadornovs escape

  • Golgari

    I want the game so much right now. This pain of stupid leaks and other stuff on the internet just kills this precious medium and a great game, not just great, but Kojima’s Magnum Opus. I’m so ready to play this. Will play this game to death. I can’t wait for it.

    P.S. Guys, I strongly recommend not to go to reddit or 4chan. From this day, leaks will go nuts all over the internet. Do yourself a favor and don’t look for spoilers. You should experience the game for yourself. It’s going to be good despite some critism or spoilers. Don’t ruin your fun, you waited too long for this game to come out. Don’t ruin everything just in one day. You will be satisfied for 5 seconds and after that you will regret it.

    P.S.2: and ofc, don’t put spoilers here or else…

    Love you, MGI community.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      also stay off neogaf

    • Gatsu

      Excellent comment ^^. Yea these goddamn leaks are so annoying, I just want the last days go peacefully. Tbh I don’t understand why some look for spoilers, when we all know sites like reddit or 4chan are where they appear a lot. Is it because just want to know the story so damn much :)?

      I’d rather suffer few days more to know it myself, when playing my long awaited masterpiece.

      I decided long time ago already, that the game is GOAT to me. No critics can change that but I will still read the scores.

      P.S. love you back …

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      Hear hear. Also, stay away from the Youtube comment section on reviews and stuff from the likes of Yong.. Had a few spoilers myself from that site throughout the years!

      • Gatsu

        Yea youtube comment section is a evil place…its what ruined GZ to me -__- .
        So basically 100% Danger zone:
        Youtube
        Neogaf
        Reddit
        N4G
        4chan
        Twitter’s reply threads
        Or actually any other place on the net, lol

        98% Safe heaven:
        MGI

        • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

          Oh man.. Was it the ending of GZ that was spoiled for you?

          Excactly! MGI is the only place where i feel safe now 😛

          • Gatsu

            Yeah, it sucked that happened although the story in GZ is pretty short.

            I didn’t want to believe it to be true, but then the final cutscene began and I knew :/ .

          • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

            How i feel when that happens

        • vic boss

          Don’t forget the comments section of the Facebook page for metal gear solid they’re cruel there too

        • Ishmael

          See, thats the thing with comment sections… Who’s looking for answers will find them. So when you read those sections, secretly you want to be spoiled. So just stay away from it. Don’t ruin the game you’ve waiting for so long. It’s stupid to destroy your joy so shortly before the release, isn’t it?

    • Edward Wokhands

      Thanks for the warning because sometimes I visit the MGS Reddit. I totally agree with everything you say! This game should be experienced in the same way we all experienced Breaking Bad when it aired. The tension felt during the wait is actually part of the experience.

      I love this community too, it’s easily the best on the internet. By far the friendliest without being too “BE POSITIVE” like. I love this site.

    • Edward Wokhands

      By the way Chico is Shigeru Miyamoto. Sorry for the spoiler. :p

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, completely agree, it really kind of sucks that suck a thing happens before release, I feel like no one should have gotten there hands on the game before release, it seems like no company can keep a secret like MGS2 anymore.

      We all love each other here (> ‘ ‘ )>

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    So these guys are doing a 500 hour twitch marathon of pure metal gear action up until, and beyond the release of the phantom pain. Its been helping me pass the time

    http://www.twitch.tv/uknighted

  • Edward Wokhands

    Anyone know who the skull guy is on the t-shirt in the last picture? Is that an MGS 5 t-shirt or is that some character that I should already know?

    • BurntFM

      OMG That’s Immortan Joe from Mad Max Fury Road. If you haven’t seen that movie I urge you to do it cause it’s the best movie of the year

      • Edward Wokhands

        Thanks! I’ve actually missed SO many movies this year. I’ll definitely check it out.

        I need to get a list of 2015’s movies because I don’t think I’ve seen one movie that was released this year. I always think that I don’t like movies but then when I make the effort to watch them I can’t stop!

    • GrayFoxWasTaken
      • Edward Wokhands

        Adorable!

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      Its From Mad Max: Fury Road 🙂 go see it if you havent already

      • Edward Wokhands

        I definitely will! Thanks!

  • Gatsu

    Also D-Dogs one more thing I wanna add to what Golgari said below.
    When more reviews start appearing, be careful about posting them here if they contain some sort of nasty info. Okey to share the links to them of course. I just think they sometimes might not be so spoiler-free.

    I understand though the joy to post good reviews here 😀 while waiting the days to pass, but just wanted to say my opinion/request :).

  • BurntFM

    LOL If Kojima can’t put his name in his games, he’s going to put it on his glasses

    Here’s a picture of someone who already has gotten his guide….grrrrr

    SPOILER FREE! IT IS JUST THE FRONT COVER!

    • robjamar

      Very cool! Is it yours?

      • Danny Patten

        I wish 😀 but no.

        • robjamar

          I was thinking about ordering one myself, but I kinda think that it takes the fun out of finding things in my own.

          • Danny Patten

            I pre ordered the collectors edition guide. It has Shinkawa artwork it, so it was worth it to me.

          • robjamar

            Still tempted to order it!

          • Danny Patten

            Look it up on the internet like amazon. When I read it has additional artwork from Shinkawa what did it for me. 🙂

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          its italian and reddit is saying the leaks coming from him are atleast partially fake

  • Gray Lion

    Brothers, I am officially going offline until TPP releases. I inadvertly just read some story-related spoilers and frankly I don´t want to see/know/read anything else. I sincerely hope that what I just read is pure trolling.
    Nevertheless, you can´t be too careful.
    See you on september 2nd!

    • No Place For Hayter

      See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

  • BurntFM

    OMG I’M SO EXCITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hustler

    Wow, I just got banned on the forums for “plugging” a site that tracks product pages to help people get the collector’s edition. This is after reading so many comments about how great this community is. Anyway, just wanted to apologize for making that my first post. In retrospect I have to agree it looked shady. A week and a half to go…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome 🙂 glad to have you comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

      Ummm, sorry if anything bad happened >.> but don’t worry about the quality of the community here, the best example is not what people say about us but us ourselves, our comments and discussions show people who we are.

    • Gatsu

      Hmm on the MGI forums? The admins there can be pretty nasty, but I’d guess they had a reason for it.

      I have only seen one banned here and was a cave troll long time ago :). Sorry it happened to you but welcome back :). This community is great even though sometimes discussion can get heated up, lol.

      MGI is kinda divided between this front page with most commenters and forum which got different admins, except Nyxus being here too.

  • NakedSnake85

    IMPORTANT****
    ALL SPOILERS IN REDDIT 4CHAN etc are true. the game has been spoiled DO NOT ENTER ANY OF THESE SITES. THE GUIDE LEAK IS TRUE. I REPEAT DO NOT ENTER IN ANY OF THESE SITES

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Some are real, some is still bullshit, but im watching the worker ants figure it out and its beautiful

    • Mauricio Acosta

      Nah I have seen many spoilers contradict themselves. A lot of these leaks are false.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      yesterday i got spoiled about ishamel and final boss battle

  • JablokoMoloko86
    • JablokoMoloko86

      btw: This is soundtrack from Cobra with Stallone xd Robert Tapper Angel of The City. HYPE IS BIG. 10 days…

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Oh shiiit this is Perfect

    • stocchinet .

      In glorious 4:3 aspect ratio

  • ok fellas, so:

    we have waited a long time, years in fact for what became the latest entry by Kojima on the MGS series.

    i remember when the trailer for the phantom pain came out on 2012 “developed by Moby Dick
    Studio” an i thought it was a cool an original IP when i red about it ( i wasn’t able to watch Spike VGA Live that time) but when i had my first glance at the trailer it all looked so suspicious and familiar, the engine looked too close to Fox engine and man, that guy looked a lot like Big boss!! i remember i even gave a phone call to a friend just to ask him if had saw the trailer for TPP, he said he didn’t because it was a new IP and it didn’t sound that interesting, i said “hey, go and watch that right now that shit is totally Metal Gear!”

    three years from that and now we are 10 days away to experience The Phantom Pain, i’m off. i’ve waited so long and i care so much about this whole saga that it would really hurt to get spoiled now, so, we’ll see each other soon and share our experiences, opinions and adventures. but i just wanted all of you to notice how important this wait was, we are going to say welcome to the game and at the same time farewell to the wait.
    this hype and all the time we shared won’t be back, and we won’t be together waiting for MGSV again (maybe for other Kojima games but that will be another story) so i just wanted to say thanks to nyxus and the community that was born here, as much as we might have suffered to wait these years part of it was also jokes, opinions and off course theories! analysing every little bit of any screenshot and every trailer, even tweets! it was a fun time, it was great to read and meet people from all over the world sharing the same passion for the MGS solid saga, and i’m really looking forward to read about our experiences and opinions about the game, see you soon comrades, here on the Informer, our little Outer Heaven.

    just 10 more days… it’s not over yet!

    • No Place For Hayter

      See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

      P.S. Nice write up 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Wow amazing comment brother ^_^, made me feel much emotions; ). Yeah all those theories were so much fun! Hopefully we meet again here after our revenge :D.

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      A nice read man. Im incredibly close to going blackout myself.. Spoilers be damned.

    • ddmaster

      “SNAAAAAAKE!!! IT’S NOT OVER YET!”

  • Cipher1986

    You think there is any chance that they might release the game early due to all the leaks?

    • Danny Patten

      Never. Maybe 1 day but that is max. At least in Germany

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      never happens, never will. Im sorry, but that bandage needed to be torn off.

      • Cipher1986

        Lol, just wishful thinking. It’s going to be tough work dodging spoilers for the next 10 days

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          you could try bribing your local mom and pop game shop.

    • VenomSnake123

      Well, if it makes you feel any better. I once had a game that came over a week early… 🙂

    • No Place For Hayter

      HA! don’t I wish, if I was in control I would, but the process of making the copies and sending them to retailers to start selling on a specific date is a complex process, one that isn’t easily (or even possible) to suddenly change and have all go well.

      • Cipher1986

        Very true, only reason I thought it could happen was because I remembered something like that happening with Modern warfare 2.

  • FOX

    Yeah spoilers are everywhere.Be carefull people!

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    guys i just came here after work. Did you want to know something about the spanish review who score mgsv 97/100? ask me and i do what i can !!

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      without spoilers, their impression?

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Moral choices in the game will impact strongly in the world . The journalist think is the greatest stealth action game ever created . Gameplay is what make this metal gear a truely Masterpiece . What everyone is worry is about he had the same trouble thant the french reviewer regarding the final ending . He still thinks the game does not made a conlusion in the franchise and doesn’t live up to other Mgs games plot . Then again he praise other particulary scenes and Epic moments that will make a strong discussion with fans. I’m still 90% confident no one of this guys has unlocked the ” secret ending “. we don’t know it this exist or not But it could be the reason why Mgsv do not resolve his questions . Overall the game is masterpiece and Ocelot Win again his iconic character =)

        • NakedSnake85

          i am really looking forward to a scene where Venom is having trouble and ocelot saves the day and we can see literally people being afraid of the mighty shalasaska…
          plz let something like that be on the phantom pain

        • Cipher1986

          I’m pretty sure that none of the reviewers have actually played the ending. I remember during Q&A @yongyea tweeted that got to play “the final game minus the ending”.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            The thing is : they didn’t mention anything about the Konami Camp.. They might be with a early copy of the game . We still don’t know but Game of the decade incoming !!! =)

    • Danny Patten

      I think in an “earlier” news someone made a translated summation. But go right ahead if it is not troublesome for you bud!

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Yes it was me XD

        • Danny Patten

          ha 😀 Ohkai, well i guess I’ve to thank you the translation then 🙂

  • Bartolomeo OP Snake Eater

    I too have decided to go internet dark. I like too many various websites to afford a mistake at this point. I have two weeks vacation specifically for this masterpiece!! See you on the other side Diamond Dogs!! Hit me up on PS4 – Jamwitme21 – MY FOB is the one that is tricked out robbing others! Haha good times ahead Dawgs I’ll be enjoying my homemade Phantom Cigar for the next 10 days!

    • No Place For Hayter

      See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    I wonder if invading your friends bases will be prevented or encouraged?

    • Danny Patten

      Depends on how you define friend since you can defend their base when they’re offline 😉

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        thats what i mean, if you get called in to protect your friends base, I hope they dont just just decide to split your base 50 50

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Can defending friends fulton my shit i wonder…

        • Steven Michael Brown

          Lol that would be hilarious

        • No Place For Hayter

          Payment for rendered services 😉

        • korruption

          Strange… I KNOW I had an army of 258 goats here… >_>

  • Danny Patten

    Just a friendly reminder for those who want to prevent spoilers:
    Stay clear off any MGS social media except maybe MGI (99% safe :P)

    There is a leak video about someone flipping through the game guide.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      in italian

  • SiodogRehane

    its only 10 days i dont need more trailers, the collector edition its already on my country so meh…x)

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      on your country how so?

    • VenomSnake123

      You mean it’s already out in your country?

      • SiodogRehane

        it is on my country on every store i know (coz my friend Works on GAME) yet its not for sale of course its a arrangement the companies do, the games arrive earlier so when the date is on 1st september they put it on stock

        • VenomSnake123

          Ah, I get it. Pretty cool to know! 🙂

  • VenomSnake123

    F*CK! I couldn’t resist the spoilers. now I have a clue about what happens in the final mission… Don’t give in people!. It’s too late for me…

    • VenomSnake123

      Still hyped though

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Honestly spoilers are the only way i can be productive, mgsv has me bedridden

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        We dont know is the final mission is the ” Truely final mission ” lol XD

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      That sucks. I hope you forget all about it when playing the game, cause it sounds like you don’t know exactly what the spoiler is.. you could be wrong if im interpreting your comment correctly.

      • VenomSnake123

        Well I think that I’m 80% right on this. But the hype is too real, I’m unbreakable!

        • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

          Thats the spirit soldier!

          • Imre saladin

            revenge on their FOB’s for all the spoilers

          • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

            If i was a hacker, i would make a list containing Steam, PSN and Xbox usernames on all these motherF*UCKERS.

          • VenomSnake123

            HELL YEAH!

          • Imre saladin

            … i fuck all of their goats .. kill every soldier .. i am already a demon

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          just forget it like i forgot other spoilers!

    • Imre saladin

      i have seen a major spoiler on junkerHQ twitter site … oh maaaan so terrible

      • VenomSnake123

        I feel like I have some kind of addiction… It’s terrible but stray strong brother!

        • Imre saladin

          i have wait sooo long for this game, and then .. fucking spoilers all over the net.. wtf

          • VenomSnake123

            You get it man!

    • VenomSnake123

      Me after reading that spoiler…:

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Did you hate the Story plot or did you hate yourself for Reading the spoiler ? please answer me without spoilers lol

        • VenomSnake123

          I hate myself. The story plot was fine luckily (if my thoughts about it are right)

  • Danny Patten
  • VenomSnake123

    Don’t know if this was shared on here already, still funny as hell

    • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

      whoever made that just made my day.

      • VenomSnake123

        I know, right! 🙂

  • SolidAmirati

    Don’t know about you all…
    But, from now on, its internet blackout for me.
    I’m waiting for so long…
    Don’t want to ruin the experience with spoilers…

    • Imre saladin

      internet blackout for me… a day to late .. fuck twitter

    • No Place For Hayter

      See you on the other side comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

      (I know this may seem like a generic response I make to blackout, but don’t make that mistake, I have to type this out each time and I mean it whole heartily each time 🙂

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica
    • No Place For Hayter

      It hasn’t hit me yet, but it will when we are under a week, and then I will be nuclear all week long, lol.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    I was just eating toast and something hit me, will we get to see a kaz with cyborg limbs? obviously prosthetic tech exists and i dont see kaz surviving too long in alaska by himself without an arm and a leg. Just a thought.

    • VenomSnake123

      Toast makes you think about the craziest things haha. But I think you’re right. I mean if big boss can get a bionic arm why can’t kaz have the same thing?

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I wonder if it happens in tpp, or is in a pre credit slideshow… oh my god… what if this game doesnt have exposition slideshows!?!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Kaz might eventually, but there are two reasons why he has none yet.

      1) He does not NEED them, you play as Venom Snake and in order to play as the character and to have him actually stealth and combat he needs both arms, Kaz doesn’t.

      2) Kaz holds his phantom pain dearly he would never replace his lost limbs as to him that would be like simply replacing his lost comrades. His lost limps hold very important meaning to him.

  • Chem

    Miller: and who are we going to fight?
    Big Boss:” .. anyone who tries to bring TPP story info here, and ruin our existence
    Miller; which info?
    Big Boss: it won’t be a particulary user or source that hunts us,
    Miller: who then?
    Big Boss: we are gonna be fighting the biggest beast of all… the spoilers

  • Doktor_C_H_A_O_S

    It’s blackout time for me as well now.. I’ve been holding it of for some days, but i’m afraid to get slammed with spoilers, if i keep postponing it.

    I feel that MGI is 99% safe like some of you are saying, but.. I also feel that one of these days, some asshole is gonna post something that can’t be unread, and i’m gonna read it just before its deleted by admins.

    And not to sound like a broken and duplicated record 😉 ..but. I have to say, that following MGI for these past few years and with that the increasing hype, the theories, the news and your hilarious comments, has been utterly awesome and addictive. I only recently started actively taking part in this community, and I don’t know why I stayed in the digital shadows for so long, but I have never regretted finally joining in.

    Now, I’m gonna bite hard into my knuckles, every time my fingers are tempted, and they will be tempted, to punch in the name of this glorious website.. See you on the other side of release day. Right now, I can’t believe that it’s right around the corner!

    PS: Feel free to add me on your PS4, I know I’ll be adding some of you guys.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, I’m staying with my original plan, I blackout the day of release, more accurately the day before, but close to the release date, just close enough so I blackout before anyone starts playing it.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        For me its less blacking out and more “Fuck everything that isnt my job and metal gear solid 5”

        • No Place For Hayter

          Lol, true that.

  • Mini gear

    … all of you look at that timer and see that only one digit left for days… (technically) and remember when that wasn’t there and then became 180. were so close. im happy to be with an amazing group of brothers like you all here. until a bit after 17 hours of tpp im gonna be extremely careful, only checking this place a few times, aghh i cant wait to get back in the swing of things with no worries 🙂 then we can all barf are amazing emotions onto here ^_^

    • No Place For Hayter

      I’m going to barf my heart and soul here when I’m done TPP, that being said that will be after a week or two, lol.

      Or better yet Snoop Dogg switching to Phantom Cigars?

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Early news on September 1 : More than 20.000 Mgsv fans where fired by their employers and other quit their jobs only to play a game Called Metal gear solid V . They blame fiddles for this and some wierd japanese dude called Hideo Kojima . The fans claim he is their god and it would rule the world for ever. Stay tune for more information

    Was planning to go into blackout mode on Sunday but leaks and info are getting to close for comfort.
    Like others have already said the thing I’m going to miss after getting TPP is reading all the theories and awesome conversations here on MGI while waiting for TPP.
    But I look forward to all the conversations still to come.
    You are all awesome Dimond Dogs.
    Nyxus, thank you, for all the hard work and time you put into creating this site.
    You have created an Outer Heaven for all MGS fans, you are our Big Boss.
    And thank you to all the mods on here who have also given their time and for risking spoilers, all to keep this Outer Heaven safe, I’m so thankful to you all.
    See you all after the credits roll. What a ride it’s going to be.

  • J_muse72

    I remember the the days when the countdown was in weeks. It started at 25 weeks and when it transitioned into 99 days I flipped and said “it’s gettong close”.
    Now look, single digits and the wait is taking as long as it did 3 years ago.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I wish i didnt know when the release date was again and then the CE shows up on my doorstep on september first and NK declares war on SK…

  • Rob Machado

    We are in single digits guys! Can’t believe it’s about to be here…

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Just asking, if anyone here read about the leaked strategy guide, does it contain story spoilers? D: cuz i’m gonna buy one and i wanna know if it’s safe to check infos about it.

    • scarecrow

      Carefully designed to avoid “unnecessary” story spoilers.

      That’s the description of the guide on Amazon.
      idk about the leak:/

      • FoxTamerMGO

        Great! thanks for the reply soldier! :’D

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    • MichaelPayneV

      Actually that’s Konmai US, and Hidoe and Konami US are like the Ape and the main character from “Dawn of The Planet of The Apes” they are both sad about what Konami JP is doing.

    • korruption

      Haha! They weren’t having that!

  • ddmaster

    I had a theory while at work tonight I know it sounds preposterous but please hear me out. In a recent Yong video (countdown retrospective) he spoke about a tweet Kojima-san posted in late april(may?) 2013 talking about having completed most of the full body mo-cap but still needing to do alot more work including facial capture. The thought occured, what if the masked man’s true identity will be visible from the get go and that the only reason he has remained bandaged up til now was to not spoil part of the story. I was thinking something might be up with the bandages because of how Kojima-san used the disquise as a ruse to camouflage the existence of TPP way back when. I was wondering if maybe there’s some connection between the two based on the bandage ruse.

    Crazy theory aside I do honestly believe the bandaged gentleman to be Frank Jaeger aka Grey Fox and that this customizable character all these journalists speak of is in fact you customizing the face of Grey Fox. None of that head transplant shenanigans, just good ol’ Grey Fox looking out for his buddy and mentor Big Boss.

    • Cipher1986

      I think when it comes to Kojima anything is possible

    • Shalashaska

      I honestly think that the Ishmael is just a Figment of Big Boss’s mind.
      Either that or Kid Mantis is making him see this other person to help him get out of the hospital before Skullface’s men kill him.
      Like I was thinking that maybe he is covered up because as Mantis is young and isnt as good at making complete faces, so he uses the Big Boss’s body and voice and bandages up the face to cover it.

      Or maybe we play the whole game as decoy octopus and the real big boss is Ishmael!!!
      You know considering how there are two Liquids in that helicopter.. WHO the hell knows ! haha xD

    • MichaelPayneV

      I actually always believed that the Bandaged Man and The Medic to be Solidus Snake, Big Boss’s weapon against Cipher and his 2 sons, Soldi and Liquid!

      • ddmaster

        Definitely could be. I’m just spitballing.

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    When Tpp scores 10/10 in every single website . Haters gonna hate

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          it was not confirmed spoilers it was old news about tretji rebenok and a theory we all know and there is probable spoiler warning so stop wasting your energy on a random internet mgi user plz or i will get all nasty

      I haven’t seen anything over at IGN. Is it IGN USA or a different one?

      Spoiler Article, if is an official article, is not spoiler!

      I just wopke up and I gotta say I had actually dreamed about spoilers 🙁

  • BurntFM

    Just had a fun evening looking through the internet and MGS Fans are going INSANE. I mean they are truly going crazy with theories and spoilers and assumptions and leaks and fakes and fights between whose theory is right and whose is dumb and things from leaks that don’t add up with footage shown and vice versa and all this stuff. I’m kinda happy to know MGS fans are as batshit crazy as always. LOL

  • FMercenary

    On September 1st this world will become one. I have found the way. Mad Max, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Star Wars: Battlefront… even Fallout 4 will be irrelevant. The world that the Boss envisioned will finally become a reality, and it will make mankind whole again.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Has anyone wandered what the “Venom” from Venom Snake means?

    My theory si that Venom Snake’s disees is the very first “Natural” form of FOXDIE, that Venom has not been killed to see how the new “Virus” performs.
    How fukked up would that be if you are the reason for the white eyes infection, how would you react?

    http://giant.gfycat.com/NaiveAthleticElephantseal.gif

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Nice!! I liked.. Preatty good really . . i’ve never think about it in that way . Now Fight!!

  • solideater

    Heard Shipment of MGS V is being done today in Dubai… that means as usuall tomorrow they’ll break the release date

    • Danny Patten

      Awww shit… :/

  • MichaelPayneV

    PS: Not trying to damage control or anything…actually if this is true, then it is A LOT worse, but i think that the reason TPP can’t be Pre-loaded on PC and is not available Physical is that, the GODDAMN PC version is not finsihed yet, and if that is the case, then expect a broken launch, as Konami won’t delay it to finsih it, they will release it anyway!

    What out!

    • JohnnyAB

      There are physical copies of MGSV (PC) in my country..

      • MichaelPayneV

        Already?! You mean right now?

        • JohnnyAB

          On pre-order (day 1 edition) with the map etc.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Is the Fleshlight one?

          • MichaelPayneV

            EDIT: Flash, not Flesh…DAMN IT!!! (in Jack Bouer’s Voice)

        • JJBYACH

          There are physical copies where I am as well?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Why are you asking me about where you live?

          • JJBYACH

            Lol, why not?

          • MichaelPayneV

            [ ! ]

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Hahaha chill out dude. There millions of AAA games without Pre- load . Is something preatty ordinary on steam. Don’t worry Really . I would bet you some fiddles if you like

    • solideater

      Another reason i think of for not pre-loading is that people likes to tinker with files and may reveal the whole scenario…

      • MichaelPayneV

        That’s a good point, never thought of that!

    • MrVux007

      not having pre-loads means nothing…PC version will be fine trust me!

      • MichaelPayneV

        I hope you’re right, but if you’re not i’ll put you in a 9 years comma again, do you hear me?

        JK

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I think theres some truth to that, i don’t believe it will be arkham knight bad, but unless they had the pc version running at the last boot camp, I’d be worried (if I was a major pc gamer, I’m not)

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    hahahha . I’m getting some crazy haters on ign. Every single post that i’ve they reply with real anger lol But this one nailed it

    • MichaelPayneV

      I know the feel bro, IGN hates me as well!

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I like other franchise but i never seen so much hate like metal gear . Is like the illuminat are trying to Destroy kojima-Master piece lol. Really in my country they hate it and i always have to make strong arguments about it .

        i think is due to the Intelligence requiriments this franchise ask for a truely understanding in the meaning of each game

        • MichaelPayneV

          Exactly, most of the people that love MGS are actually film critics and usually have a big IQ, as MGS is a complicated, but magnificent story!

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Yes. You are 100% right . I finished the other day : ANIMAL Kingdom( australian movie with guy pierce ) Dude that movie is brillant

          • MichaelPayneV

            I watched Attack on Titan, and is not a Bad Movie, the only problem i can find is the Dialogue, Cheesy Japanese, but so is the dialogue in the show.

            Seriously, this is the most faithfull Anime to Movie adaptation i have ever seen!

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Nicee thanks . I will watch it definitly – I finish the season 1 and read some manga until i quit . i will wait for the second season to keep my hype alive XD

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            i’m watching “Gangasta new anime build by original manga “. Really really good stuff. Great characters and plot that progress slowly but with nice details and some good fights. The characters reminds me metal gear solid 100%

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          Except halo, mass effect, destiny, the last of us, they all have a huge legion of haters. It means the game is good

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well HALO is overrated.

            Words from an MGS Fan

            “Stop playing Halo for a second, and appreciate some of the best action games ever made!” (At the end of the Review)

            https://youtu.be/78AUkfXy9mo

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Halo isn’t over rated, it’s one of the most played multiplayer fps games in history and fundamental for the advancement of non pc based online gaming. It basicly made Xbox live a profitable buisness venture

          • MichaelPayneV

            But still, doesn’t hold a candle to Metal Gear, Story wise!

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            agreed infinintly, but that’s not the only merit by which video games should be judged by their nature

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well ever since i found Metal gear, i can’t!

    • MrVux007

      I do agree that The last of us is the greatest video game ever made…but why the hell does he even mention the bloody game on MGSV article???

      also what did you expect from IGN comments section? 😀 ….80% comments on MGSV right now are either graphics comparison wars(aka platform wars) or general trolling lol

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I do know how they are on ign but there are no so many Mgs core fans, so i go and post 100 articles about mgs or big boss and i don’t give a fuck haha . Sometimes you see metal gears fans some time not . i will keep doing until the games comes out . The amount of haters replies is funny . Becouse they really are trying hard lol

        • MrVux007

          guess you just like to watch the world burn 😉

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yeah, a lot of people keep saying that there is barely a difference ebtween the PC and PS4 version, i guess they can’t see the truth, they have Ray Charles syndrome. LOL

        • Danny Patten

          Let me grab some water for that burn… 😀 man that was a smug statement Sir!

          • MichaelPayneV

            ???

        • MrVux007

          I wouldnt say there is “barely” any difference…but sure as hell aint “huge” and a lot of gamers seem to agree with that… then again people are obliged to have their own opinion on that…some of the PC folk just cant deal with that,unfortunately…

          “i guess they can’t see the truth, they have Ray Charles syndrome. LOL”

          that last part was hilarious …but claiming your or someone else’s opinion as the “truth” is somewhat, “arrogant”…you either disagree or agree with someones view on things,there is no right or wrong opinion lol…

          This is why i value the console community more then my PC community,they seem to lack that,egotistical behaviour that “some” PC folk have…(and before you say it,yes we do have the same in the console community,but in much less quantity)…

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        “Best game ever” is troll bait

        • MrVux007

          or someones opinion 🙂

    • Danny Patten

      I don’t see any MGS article over at IGN :/ and I tried different regions.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Since people can’t bring up half life 2 anymore, it’s deffinently a contender for best game of 2010-2015

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Every time I want to trol users in a mgs post I would troll haters and

    – P.S.A. to my Outer Heaven comrades…

    Starting Monday, the amount of spoilers for TPP may be rampant over the following week up until the release of the game.

    Having been burnt multiple times before playing single-player story games, I have written some tips that will help you avoid getting this final Metal Gear Solid experience ruined.

    1. Disable your gaming related RSS feeds (i.e. Engadget, Gamespot, N4G…etc.)

    2. Disable automatic Twitter notifications (if you follow and have instant notifications from Gaming Media personalities and websites)

    3. Avoid visiting Click-Bait websites such as “IGN” (they tend to spoil in the article headline)

    4. Avoid comment sections on all websites especially YouTube (people enjoy spoiling
    in on non-related articles/videos)

    5. For PC Gamers – avoid the official MG TPP forums on Steam (a lot of childish behavior occurs over there)

    And finally, although it is pretty safe on MGI take precautions to ensure Mother Base is secured.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Its not this post that bothers me, its that this has to be the 8th time ive seen a comment almost exactly like this.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Does this need to be repeated every 50 comments? Im not saying you are trying to repeat them, your list is more organized and thought out than most, but this is almost as common as someone writing a blackout post.

      • J.Wayne

        Was not my intention at all. I’ve been avoiding the comments so I wouldn’t know but thought it would be useful.

    • kuaikukia

      already limited my surfing on internet for MGS. the only I visit is this web and yongyea’s youtube countdown retropective

  • MichaelPayneV

    To everyone going in the so called “Blackout”
    https://i.imgflip.com/iweho.gif

    Look at the good side, you have the 4K Remaster for PS5…basically the PC version that we had 9 years ago ported to PS5, but hey, you like Cash grabs….i mean Remasters, don’t you? Hahah!

    • korruption

      Uh… hilarious?

    • N-Shifter

      At least you amused yourself, that’s something I suppose.

    • MrVux007

      I wont have much of an choice on september 1st…since i wont play TPP anywhere before November 28th …thankfully the internet availability is quite shite onboard this ship(it takes up to 3 minutes to even load MGI lol),so that will “motivate” me to stay away from potential spoiler sites or internet in general lol…

  • MichaelPayneV
    • Shiragama

      Yes, that’s an image of one achievement of TPP altough I don’t know what it’s called. But the style is very simmilar to those leaked achievements.

      • MichaelPayneV

        If so, WHERE IS THE SHRAPNEL?! … and the ponytail?

        • Shiragama

          Yeah, that’s the big question. That’s clearly a shot of the last scene of the GDC 2013 Trailer although he had the shrapnel in the trailer. Very mysterious..

          • MichaelPayneV

            Looks like this is the finished model!

          • Shiragama

            Yeah probably, but why did Hideo put the shrapnel in his head in the trailer back then? To not spoil something or what? Don’t want to think too much about it, tbh. We’ll see in a few days.

    • JJBYACH

      *Achievement Spoiler*
      The achievement is called “TRUTH: The Man Who Stole the World” – take that however you will..

      • MichaelPayneV

        Sounds interesting!

      • solideater

        Looks like a secret achievement…

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Can’t believe hideo retweeted this shit!

      • MichaelPayneV

        IF Hideo thinks is fine to see this image, then is not a Spoiler!

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          The guy which spoiled this shit in June said this is the real big boss

          • MichaelPayneV

            And he looks like it.

            If Venom Snake is not Big Boss, and if he is not Gray Fox, then that would be freakin awesome and mind blowing!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            The guy who leaked in June said quiet talks and is in the hospital intro

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Andthat was in the fake strategy guide

          • MichaelPayneV

            So the blonde chick is Quiet?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Wait, these are spoilers, delet your comments now, i’ll delete mines!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Wait I need to refresh my page!

      • Shiragama

        Yeah I was wondering too. But this scene is known (well with a shrapnel in his head) and doesn’t spoil anything.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Haha, this guy is so funny, he deserves more subscribers, and he is a Metal Gear Fan!

    • MichaelPayneV

      If Venom Snake becomes the PResident of United States at the end of TPP, then it will all make sense!

      • NakedSnake85

        Most likely he will become V-president
        hahah

        • MichaelPayneV

          No, what i mean is that if Venom Snake is not Big Boss,again, IF, then he is Solidus and not Fox!

          • NakedSnake85

            my theory was and still is that well he’s…..no i wont tell…
            if someone wants to know just click on my profile ! 😛

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            A c? Won’t tell the entire word ?

            As i said, IF, again IF.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            He got spoiled like me on the shithole of he internet 4chan

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            That guy which spoiled it said blood or e goty and mgsv is shit?WHAT A RETARD!

          • NakedSnake85

            yeah of course and its only a theory of mine that the medic from Gz is venom snake.
            its quite obvious to me

          • MichaelPayneV

            Og, well, that’s my theory also, that The Medic is Venom Snake, and that The Medic is Solidus!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            WTF! WHAT NEXT ISHAMEL IS CHICO!

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, the theory is really simple actually!

            Solidus is Cipher’s Right hand, he is sent in MSF as a “Medic” he earns BB trust, then he watched BB 9 years and is sick of Cipher, so he saves Big Boss, then…he becomes the President of U.S.A.!

          • NakedSnake85

            well i dont know about solidus but my theory doesnt have many clues or anything.. its what i saw and learned while playing GZ. since “not your kind of people” trailer when Kaz asks about that person i was sure that there is a body double. when i played GZ and saw the medic who protected big boss (same voice) and tried to reach paz with his left hand and they both fell down .. it hit me.. it was obvious that he would be venom on TPP

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            Already delete my comments !

            maybe we are right maybe we are wrong.. i posted my theory multiple times on pythonselkans&yong yeas videos since march 2014.. 10 days left ! we will see 🙂

            Yeah, 10 goddamn days!

          Did you delete your comment since you were just theorizing

          • NakedSnake85

            yes .. cause despite being sarcastic someone could easily think that i know something more which i dont .. 🙂

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            But you went to 4 chan and got spoiled right!

          • NakedSnake85

            only thing i saw was the achievements and the list of missions. i ve been waiting 3 loooong years for TPP. NO story spoilers for me.plus a ffriend of mine (an italian) has the guide and he showed it to me so i know that those spoilers there are true. but i dont actually know what is going on
            also i posted my theory many times here too. so not guilty !

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            The Ishmael thing ! Nooooooo I got spoiled

          • NakedSnake85

            dude chill we are only making theories here.. plz calm down !
            let the three of us delete our comments just to fair to this community of wonderfull people. ok?

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            No I got spoiled on 4chan

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        George Sears is venom?cant be!

        • NakedSnake85

          nah its not

        • MichaelPayneV

          Actually it can, you see, in MGS2 you don’t see whether or not Solidus has real limbs or not!

      • NakedSnake85

        MichaelPayne delete your comments too.. cause we may be theorizing but there are some people that might actually think that all these things we are saying are true. ok?

        • MichaelPayneV

          Roger that.

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    DONT WORRY GUYS NAKEDSNAKE85 michaelpaynev and I were theorizing about big boss and about the fake strategy guides and we deleted our comments after.sincerely sorry!

  • NakedSnake85

    Actually now is not a good time for theories. These are indeed crucial days for TPP.
    i will stop posting or expressing any kind of theory. Total black out for me 🙂 cause it seems that it affects people with every right ! see you on the battlefield
    MGI is the best community ever and im so proud being a part of it. Enjoy TPP its been a long wait for all of us dont let anything spoil or affect your experience with the final game of our beloved franchise. Panos out 😉

    • Gatsu

      Good luck staying away from MGI, it don’t work for everyone :).

      • NakedSnake85

        Hey Gatsu can i contact you on social media?

        • Gatsu

          Sure I guess :). You mean like Facebook or Twitter ?

          I’m active on YouTube and Steam a lot but currently moving so a bit busy haha ;).

            Facebook: My real name is Eero Heikkinen ;), finnish names can seem weird haha. Should find me with that I think. It’s almost written like Zero lol ;D.
            Only started using Facebook more some weeks ago.

          • MrVux007

            i almost read your surname as Heineken lol
            love that beer to much

          • NakedSnake85

            plot twist.. Gatsu owns Heineken!
            Dun Dun Dun DUUUUUN

          • MrVux007
          • Gatsu

            LOL me too, love the beer I mean

          • MichaelPayneV

            All tough I’m more of a Grolsch guy, from time to time I love me some Heineken!

          • MrVux007

            never tried Grolsch but from the look of the bottle and general reputation ive herd its quite refreshing beer

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly, and tastes, pretty good (pun not intended)

          • NakedSnake85

            Dont worry man my full name is Panagiotis Filandrianos !
            weird name here too 🙂

          • Danny Patten
          • MichaelPayneV

            What’s your Facebook avatar? There are A LOT of people with your name, so I don’t know which one are you.

          • Gatsu

            I use the one I had here before with them glasses. I can link it later if need, busy lol

          • MichaelPayneV

            I have the same avatar as here, just sent you a request.

          • Gatsu

            Yea thx Peter ^_^

          • MichaelPayneV

            Oh, the name is Peter Radu!

          • Lewis

            Eero? Do you pronounce “Ee” like in “easy” or like in “effort”? Just curious.

          • Gatsu

            I have wondered that too lol. Maybe in English like “Ee” as in easy . Pronounce like Zero but two E instead of Z.

            In Finland we say the E more like with “effort”. Not sure if can explain it well ;).

          • Lewis

            Your native pronunciation matters to me the most. Sorry, if that question was inappropriate. Foreign culture always fascinates me.

          • Gatsu

            No its OK; ). Don’t worry ;D

          • What’s your YouTube?

  • Gatsu

    Yes it’s not a good time to post theories.

    You could discuss them privately if really want to, steam, youtube or some other way.

    • NakedSnake85

      I just realized that. Ofc Gatsu. We ll have plenty of time after the release

    • MichaelPayneV

      Could you please explain why?

      • Gatsu

        Well I can’t tell people what to do, but I kinda agree with what Naked said :)… So might be better without doing them too much (my opinion)

        • MichaelPayneV

          Gotcha!

          • Gatsu

            <3

  • kirtanloorii

    Wow. Looks like I missed something. TONS of deleted comments, lol.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Just TPP theories so believable and plausible that some may think are real spoilers, so we had to delete them.

      • kirtanloorii

        I see. This to do with the guides? I wasn’t even trying and I still found the info. I made the mistake of looking at #MGSVTPP on twitter. This stuff is real.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          All the guide info is 100% real and neogaf has the best spoiler thread imo (i know mgs spoiler thread on reddit refreshed last night)

    • NakedSnake85

      Yeah we had to delete those cause some people believe that thats the real story.

      • kirtanloorii

        So, were they deleted for having the wrong opinion?

  • solideater

    Metal Gear is one depressing series..
    Boss is dead
    Zero is dead.
    Eva is dead
    Ocelot is dead
    Signt is dead
    Para-Medic is dead
    Gray Fox is dead
    Miller is dead
    Liquid is dead
    Solidus is dead
    Big Boss is dead
    Solid will be dead soon

    • WrongDirectionZ

      Life is lethal ^^

      • solideater

        Nopes Fox Die is lethal 🙁

        • WrongDirectionZ

          That too ofcourse

    • kirtanloorii

      Look at the bright side: Almost all of these people are alive and kicking in TPP.

      • solideater

        I think Metal Gear is star wars of games…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Except much better.

        • MichaelPayneV

          The differences is that in Metal Gear the Prequels are actually better.

          • solideater

            Just wait for Konami to make the remakes of MG1 & 2 without Kojima…

          • Ishmael

            Unfortunately this would become true.

    • Mk. II is dead
      RIP, Mk. II

    • Cipher

      All Men Must Die

    • Shalashaska

      And everyone is Gray fox and Gray fox is Decoy octopus. Shhh.. they just dont know it yet.

  • So no spoiler. Everyone knows what is the new metal gear. Does anyone want to see a actual pic of it?????

    • Ravenous

      if it’s a new pic of it, sure, link away 🙂

  • FOX

    Did an Action Figure Just Spoil Part of Metal Gear Solid 5?
    There’s an article on ign. Dont know what it is about

  • JJBYACH

    After a while of searching I found definitely proof that the PC version is the ultimate version of MGSV:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c-XChgrnzss

    Nuff said…

    • WrongDirectionZ

      I can only see fiddlers ^^
      and glasses everywhere

      • JJBYACH

        Exactly 🙂

    • Cesare Di Maio

      Why Am I not in that scene D:

      • NakedSnake85

        Are u a Fiddler? huh? huuuuuuuuuuuh?

      • solideater

        Just wait for the mod replacing it with Quiet…

        • Shalashaska

          Replace every moving asset in the game with quiet.
          JIGGLE PHYSICS EVERYWHERE!

    • Arestras

      don’t know why I’m laughing so much right now

    • kirtanloorii

      And here I thought those sunglasses were just for show.

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, it’s clearly the source of his power.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Since metal gear will most likely live beyond V, what do you think the next games subject matter will be, The Joy becoming The Boss? A remake of the original metal gear games? A reboot?

    • WrongDirectionZ

      A game about the boss would probeably the only game after V i care about

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        WW2 stealth would be awesome. Although, I guarantee they would put the timeline for stealth camo back 80 years

    • S.D Plisken

      A reboot of metal gear would be easy , u already have the storyline, just need a good script and bring back hayter and voila people will like konami again , no brainier, but it’s konami, they will do they’re own thing.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Agreed, but the fox engine is too good to let it go to waste on PES (not saying soccer is bad, just the engine is not being used to its full potential)

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I’m not even buying it no matter the quality of any remastered or remake .
        I’m not putting more money on a company who doesn’t care a fuck about me or you . Just money and been a completly disrespectful entity with all the things i love and care. Many bad moments . Many things we have been through and i will never forget P.t – Silent hills. Never in my life. They can go fuck them self with a stick and died slowly

        • S.D Plisken

          I understand your position, and agree, but I would still be interested in an metal gear remake, with hayter onboard with a good script, konami knows it’s metal gear ip needs to stay strong without Kojima, so it would be interesting to see, what they would do, if they fuck it up well I’m done with metal gear , but if they show they can listen to fans and give them what they want, they might have a chance, they have to get good PR after Kojima leaves or they are screwed.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            The already fucked too much . No respect to the man who made what they are today . It’s been 28 years since this franchise born and he and K.p made more money to them than any developer out there . They where the core of why konami video gaming enterteiment exist in all this years . METAL GEAR SOLID = KOJIMA = KOJIMA = KONAMI . Is a fact not an opinion . No kojima = NO METAL GEAR – METAL GEAR SOLID . Silent hills is just the Tip of the iceberg. They don’t deserve our money . I will boycott everything after September even the fans who will support konami. Is disgusting . Sorry not trying to be rude just saying the truth

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Kp made more money than any developer?

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            on konami in the console gaming industry? Yes. Funny how people still thinks capital and economy are only made by Disk sales . There is something call marketing strategy – Quality stantards and Trust in the market. Metal gear solid bring konami to the top of the charts and yes that is more money than you think. . It will not be in the record of game sales

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Can i see proof?

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Yes go and made some research or studies about how business in big companies works . I’m not arguing with you i already feel what are you trying to do .Peace

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Caught in a lie lol

    • JJBYACH

      Let’s not kid ourselves – the next Metal Gear will probably be a Pachinko machine.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I bet it will run super smooth.

  • Gatsu

    Please don’t post new photos of the new MG if it ends up being like that in the game.

    I don’t know if that look is the real shape of it, but I don’t want to see too much of ST84 before playing. I beg you :(.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, I don’t want to see ST-84 until I SEE IT!

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Since I don’t want to read spoilers or theories so near the release. I would post this kind of pictures Until someone banned me lol

    • MrVux007

      ahhhh…cmon,you are rly asking for a platform war mate lol

    • solideater

      You know i’ll be playing on Xbox one… which in this case is the mine craft version 🙂

    • Lewis

      I really hate everyone, who starts platform wars. I’m a PS fanboy, but half my buddies prefer Xbox or PC. And that’s fine. I would always prefer to play a game on PS even over PC. But if someone chooses other platform – that’s fine.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Nice ! Let the hate come back to life waiting for V . Rage – Show me you Rage !!! XD

        • ddmaster

          “Ready yourself! Here I come!!”

      • Shalashaska

        As a person who would literally own all 3 methods of playing had i had enough money, I can say that although every one has their opinions and likes and dislikes… but no one can deny that PC is the strongest of them.. its because of that extra strength that PC may just always stay better in gaming compared to consoles.
        Then again, aint nothing better than laying on your sofa and playing some games in peace, yes ?

    • Andrea Feletti

      ahahahaha “let the legend come back to life…AGAIN!” XD

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica
    • No Place For Hayter

      Now that is funny, trolling at its finest >.< LOL. That being said they made a mistake, the logo behind the weapon is MSF, it is Diamond Dogs logo in TPP not MSF.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        You are preatty good but we are playing a Vr mission in the phantom pain . Once you fight the final fiddle boss . Big boss wake up on 2078 back in mexico eating some doritos

  • Edward Wokhands

    O___O

    9. DAYS.

    It’s so weird seeing that on the timer.

    • Ravenous

      Yeah, but in 4 hours, mine is gonna say 8 days and that’s gonna be even more alien and incomprehensible to me 0o

      • Edward Wokhands

        I’m so excited that I’ve gone into non-excited mode.

      • Edward Wokhands

        By the way, I wonder how the release will be handled? Will some people get it earlier since they hit midnight earlier on PSN/Xbox Store/Steam?

        • solideater

          People gonna get it waaay early than that, a leak is bound to happen either the street date is broken or game is released for hacked xbox 360 and ps3

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            They arent talking about leaks, they are talking about release windows.

        • Ravenous

          As far as I’ve understood, Midnight 01.09.15 New Zealand time is the global unlock for Steam, and that translates to 14.00 on 31.08.15 Norwegian time, 13.00 UK time, so it will be sort of a staggered release in terms of the local time 🙂

  • Edward Wokhands

    I’m scared of scrolling down, I’ve seen a few mentions of spoilers. There aren’t any below are there? I don’t want to see anything new now until release.

    • Shalashaska

      SPOILER ALERT.
      Boo.
      hehehe

      • Edward Wokhands

        (._.) – “What’s that noise?”

        !!!!!!!!!!
        (O_O)

  • S.D Plisken

    Question , if u open an psn New Zealand account, could u play the game early?

    • Ravenous

      maybe with some prpxy-magic, but don’t quote me on that, not 100%

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    We get it, everybody knows.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    It should go live on eastern time on your ps4, as for the rest, I have no idea.

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica
    • Andrea Feletti

      coooooool 😉

    • solideater

      Soon Solid would also join and the family will be complete…

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        i rather preferJohnny Sasaki but yhea =)

        • solideater

          I would prefer Johnny Ghost to be eradicated by the Ghost Busters Team…

  • Matthew Theroff

    Hey fellow Diamond Dogs if you would like to add me on PSN in preparation for The Phantom Pain my name is hell_zombie_mt. We have a little ways to go and so excited about there being only 9 days until release.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      ps3 or 4?

      • PhantomSnake

        PS4

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Nice day to drive a cipher boss XD

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Just a reminder: Tomorrow is when the review embargo is lifted.

    Tomorrow is probably when the bootcamp embargo is lifted

    tomorrow is when greg miller starts his lets play

    This is an awful format that takes up space, and I hope we can move past it.

    • solideater

      What time does the Embargo lifts??

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I dont know, its either in the morning or in the evening.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Did you know Greg miller state at March 2015: . His Goty will be Arkham night and there was no love por metal gear solid v Phantom pain . I save the video to remember anyone who think he’s a true fan . He just like metal gear and let not talk about characters or plot as a whole . He don’t understand what the hell is going on in this franchise

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Well considering hes the only one allowed to publish a pre release lets play and Ive listened to him talk about how PW is his favorite metal gear, and this looks like that x a million. I have a feeling he might change his mind. He is also a huge metal gear fan, has been for years. I cant remember the exact episodes of podcast beyond where he talked about mgs, but they exist.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          He praise peace walker but he didn’t understand other past games . After playing the preview on konami boot camp he jump to the hype train but months before he was on the batman side . Not trying to say anything bad to him . Just facts

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Good for you bro

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Cool brother haha are you salty today ? I think you are

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            no, your just an asshole. Take your facts elsewhere

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Nice . Go and find a job on konami they will gladly accept an idiot like you who keep defending this kind of moves

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Still waiting for the proof that KP is the most profitable dev. Im not saying anything bad about you. Just facts

          • No Place For Hayter

            There was a Konami discussion I missed? hit me with it, lol, that is if you are willing to repeat something I missed, lol.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Is that the best response to give? don’t egg him on so much, geez, he thinks differently than you no big deal, and when he gives a rude or snarky response move on or tell him that you don’t want it to get personal or rude and want to discuss things normally, don’t get caught in in things and be rude. Lets try to be friends here and accept that everyone has a different opinion and different tastes, lets not degenerate to children and start name calling, we are all mature enough to never do it in the first place and mature enough to respond in a mature manor if someone insults us, not to insult back.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Sorry . I’m deleting the comment but he was really anger about my arguments regarding konami or Metal gear . i’ apologize

          • No Place For Hayter

            It’s cool even I have gone off the handle (not that that is what you did, lol), lol, not something I should be admitting, lol, but it is cool in my book as long as everyone is sorry and hugs or something >.<

          • No Place For Hayter

            If you don’t like what he is saying, don’t respond, or be more discussive about it an not blatantly insult people, when you find yourself insulting someone you know the conversation has been derailed and no longer means anything. If you find you can’t discuss something with someone tell them that you simply think otherwise and that you no longer want to discuss it as you find it too hard to discuss such a thing with them, no need to get caught up in things and post a hateful comment, lets all try to be friends here, and except other people think differently and have different opinions.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Nah, fuck em. I wont respond to him, he shouldnt respond to me. Tried being reasonable, now hopefully were just done. Its easier to rip off the bandage than just slowly try to pull it off without pulling any hairs.

          • No Place For Hayter

            It isn’t about being reasonable about the subject it is about being reasonable about being unreasonable. You don’t want to talk about it to him, you can straight up tell him that without being rude or pissy about it, you can tell someone in a none hostile manor that you are done, hostility will only breed more hostility, if you want to end it don’t respond with a comment that is just asking for another hostile comment.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Right, but as i said earlier. fuck em. im not sure what you dont get about this. Theres a time to be civil and theres time to cut the bullshit.

          • No Place For Hayter

            For me being nice and understanding isn’t “bullshit” you think it is that’s fine, but please keep the “bullshit” to a max in MGI, as we here promote “bullshit” and any cutting of the “bullshit” is frowned upon, just take a break next time.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            The bullshit is being nice to an asshole who antagonizes you with elitism. Your out of your league donny!

          • Shalashaska
          • No Place For Hayter

            Aye, yes.

          • No Place For Hayter

            for me it’s called being mature, if you think someone is being an asshole to why being yourself down to his level and be an asshole back? I understand where you are coming from, but it isn’t that hard to tell someone you are done in a none hostile manor, you want to cut the bullshit, fine, but don’t be an ass yourself about it.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Because where i come from, if you call out someone on their antagonism and lies, they usually bugger off. If you think I treat everyone who disagrees with me like that, then your mistaken. I dont mind being argued with, but i do mind people being condesending for no reason than to try and look either more informed or to be argumentative, go back and look at the first reply to my initial comment and realize thats not the first argument weve had that ended with him just telling me he knows more than I do. so i repeat, fuck’em.

          • No Place For Hayter

            You have missed my points.

            1) This is the internent, this isn’t where you come from, everyone is from everywhere here and you have to respect that, you can’t being your culture and your single mindset into a space which has no culture or mindset, you have to be accepting of different people and different views.

            2) You keep saying “fuck’em” but you never see my point about how immature that is. You can tell him to fuck off in a none hostile manor, hostility will only breed hostility, you really want him to fuck off, stop being rude to him, just tell him in a none hostile manor that you are done.

            I don’t care how mad you get, please try to keep these points in mind here in MGI, because we have a nice community here of lots of people, and honestly I do not like your comments being rude, I told you that we don’t need that reactionary bullshit here, if you want to react without thinking about the community go somewhere else, but think more of than just yourself, think of MGI, keep your emotional fights outside of MGI.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            If everyone was respecting everyone, he wouldnt have been being an asshole, so I wouldnt have called him an asshole. Immature or not, Fuck’em. How about you quit trying to tell me how to behave and let the moderators handle this.

          • Shalashaska

            Lol how about BOTH of ya just shut up and play some asura’s wrath !!!!

            http://bulk.destructoid.com/ul/198635-/7-620x.jpg

            How about this for an argument ?

            ASURA VS KRATOS! Who would Win?

          • No Place For Hayter

            You can only control what you do, it is maturity to control how mature you are, the world is full of immature people, if you became immature in the presence of every single one of those people there would be no mature people anywhere.

            I’m not trying to tell you how to behave, I’m asking, and yeah sorry I have been repeating myself, lol, I guess I was waiting for an acknowledgment or something, my bad >.< and honestly we are a well knit community here, not a unknown group of people whom need moderators to control its people. I simply thought I could point out what I thought about your comment to get you too take a second look at it and hug and make up, as I have seen many times before here.

          • NakedSnake85

            Hey hey plz.. this goes to joaquin too.. what i like the most in MGI is that we are all good mannered at all times.. i know that we share a common passion here and its Metal gear.. but still this not a reason to fight or to insult every body.. we are all reached our limits with theories different opinions and tastes.. but..remember why we r here.. big boss said it best.. It’s about respecting the will of others, and believing in your own
            peace : )

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Im here to express my fandom and have constructive conversations, not to be contradicted and insulted for no reason. I wont tolerate it, and look, we arent arguing anymore so i say it worked pretty well. I just made him be the bigger man.

          • No Place For Hayter

            “I just made him be the bigger man.” this isn’t even a thing.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            He didnt call me a piece of shit back right? well thats called being the bigger man

          • No Place For Hayter

            If you are going to act like that I ask that you leave for a while before you fill the comments with childish responses like this. Honestly what the fuck is this? I’m blown away at how you have reacted, you were both not acting perfect, but you taken this thing way to personally, and are now responding like a hurt dog, please stop and come back when you are in a clearer state of mind.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Im sorry your taking this personaly, theres really no hate here. The only issue left is you want me to accept what i did was immature and wrong, and you think something should be done about it. Im going to keep browsing the comments and chatting with folks, and if they choose to be a dick to me in particular over several comment threads, I might have some negative words for them.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Ok, cool, sorry for my harsh language (hope it didn’t come across like I was hostile, I probably really did sorry), and sorry for getting on your case SO FRIGGING much, I have a tendency to keep going with things >.<

            And I'm going to take some of my own advice and let you be you, just wanted a level to be set about how far one should go with their negative words here in MGI.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            No, its cool, tensions are high and nobody wants to see MGI become another site where people treat each other like shit. I respect that, and this situation isnt something im proud of, I assure you that much.

          • No Place For Hayter

            You should see a few of my comments, lol, I have written a few very harsh essays when all I did was misread a comment, whoops, we are all human.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Also some fanfare, the inner fight has ended, all has been resolved. I know I probably shouldn’t have gotten involved (sorry guys >.<) but this is our Outer Heaven and I feel like it is everyone's role to keep a sort of inner peace.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            hey hey i just came here and see all this . i just made arguments. For example you like konami i tell you why i don’t or my point of view. You can responde i will respond you . Is called arguing but i never say fuck you to anyone . So he started first . If someone hate the way i think cool but trying to insult someone is lack of intelligence nothing more . I will stop in fact i stopped some hours ago

          • No Place For Hayter

            While he is more hostile you have been egging him on, you can’t call him the bad guy, it takes two people to fight. Also calling him salty is a great way to start a fight and is short sighted in how he will react.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Sorry dude he still preatty angry about my comment . I just made rational thought of what i feel about this franchise and Konami of course . I made some good friends here. I don’t want to feel like the bad guy lol. You already know who i love this franchise like anyone else . I’m not better than anyone . Peace friend !! Sorry for the conflict .

          • Shalashaska

            YOU

          • I have spoken with him directly…You’re not correct

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Not saying anything bad really . Let me show you the ign video before he went to Funny games . I need to search it =)

          • I knew what you’re talking about, your link isn’t necessary. I mean you opinion on his fandom is wrong. That’s all I’ll say because I know these kinds of conversations could go on forever if you have nothing else to do.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            So then i’m not wrong . he state his favourite game from the year was arkham night in that specific moment in 2015 . I’m telling the truth nothing more . I know you meet the guy and he’s must be awsome but a true fan will choose Mgsv even if he is a professional journalist . Arkham night wasn’t even launched yet when made the statement and he said it was his most anticipated game of the year . Nothing wrong but i just talking things in a “Fan standpoint of view “. I appreciate your work by the way. thanks for the website

          • Janeo

            I used to follow ign pretty closely a few years ago and I never saw him as the huge mgs fan he said he was. He does like the games, especially peace walker but he has called the metal gear story as a whole a train wreck multiple times so I’m not sure how someone who sees the story as a train wreck can be as big a fan as he says. He’s definitely a fan but maybe he’s just not as invested as people like us. Just always really bugged me that he would talk about how much he loves the series and then call the story a train wreck.

      • JJBYACH

        And what is your point? That because he is a more causal fan his opinion is invalid?

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          Nope i just saying he is not a real fan but i likes his reviews some times . Sorry seems i came here to the wrong webiste . This is fall out 4?

  • solideater

    Well now is the time for Kojima to show his final trailer since from tomorrow, flood gates for spoilers would open..

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Oh those gates are open
      . I wont spoil anything, but the guide leaked, theres a mission that the guide makes you go online to see and that wont update until after tpp releases, so the big big super ending spoilers most likely wont come until after release.

      • solideater

        Yeah I have read those.. Of the three games currently best conclusion to the story for me is of Witcher 3

      • JJBYACH

        YEEEEEEEE(assuming that is the case)EEEEY!

    • Danny Patten

      Holy shit…I didn’t like that movie tho…but I don’t like most German movies.

      • PhantomSnake

        I thought it was funny because of Hitler getting frustrated and owned at the end lol.

        • Danny Patten

          I wasn’t talking about the one you linked 😀 I meant the original Movie xD

          • PhantomSnake

            Oh ok lol

          • kirtanloorii

            I actually really liked that movie. It is one of the few German movies that I have seen.

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    You will never heart about it . Search some things about how laws in companies works on japan. They uses secret contracts for this kinds of things. People are not allow to say the truth of the matter. The real truth is under the table and there are too much things going on . Many different leaks and statements from scourses around the world. skepticism do not help in this industry or society but it’s okay

    • S.D Plisken

      Once kojima leaves his contract is up, unless they offer him an payoff to go quietly with money and sign an nda , kojima can say what he wants, konami can dispute it of course but kojima was a director at konami, so he’ll know how it works, but kojima is not one for putting the boot in, he’ll say different vision , wanting to do new things in a new environment, P.R talk, but in The months and years after TPP, we’ll get bits of information, and we’ll get a better idea who was at fault, plus it will take another 3-4 years before we see a metal gear game again , so I’ll wait and see.

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    The fox engine is not unreal engine development tool where anyone can jump in to the train and made games. You need the people of k.p who has been working on in the build by 6 years to make it work at it max capabilities . Is not magic . They will milk the fox engine with other developers from years to come with all the effort of this people

      And welcome comrade ( ' ' )7 seems the waiting has gotten you to come and join us in the comments, lol, agreed it is really hard after so many years to be so close, lol.

      • Antonimusprime

        Oh I know, I’ve been tracking TPP since the Project Ogre days and it’s getting so close I can smell it. This site has had a spot on my permanent tabs for the past few months, so I thought it’s time to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve already cleared my whole schedule from September 1st on, so there will be nothing keeping me from enjoying this masterpiece except eating and sleeping… and going number 2 of course…

        • No Place For Hayter

          Ahhh yes, using the bathroom, the bain of everyone, that and sleeping, both of which will get in the way of TPP, lol.

  • NakedSnake85

    the moment u realize that V may be the last Metal Gear

    • No Place For Hayter

      Edit: lol misread your commment, lol.

      Yeah 🙁 Kojimas last MGS, there is NO doubt we will have MANY more, but they will all be crap from Konami, no longer will we get a Hideo Kojima MGS. Any more MGS games will serve no greater purpose than to be timeline filler, no future MGS will seek to give the players anything more than simple entertainment.

      • NakedSnake85

        as he said V symbolizes the victory he wants to achieve over western studios !
        but hey… its Kojima.. Maybe theres a V shaped Genola monster that spreads “linguistic”

        nahhh i didnt like revengence at all 🙁
        cause i kind hated what they did to raiden in 4 and in Revengence : (

        • No Place For Hayter

          Hear, hear.

        • ddmaster

          I didn’t like the fact that the whole reason for Raiden’s very existence was to give us, the players, a chance to view Snake out-of-the-box you know and that Revengence’s whole existence was just for him. That and the fact that NONE of the Snakes, hell not even Ocelot was in it.

          Overall I just didn’t like the fact it wasn’t a MG game, sorry enough said.

        Yong predicted that that happens after the explosion and technically he has a point.. look at the suit.. it looks sorta tarry.. like its been exposed to fire.. perhaps the copters dont really crash.. or maybe just kojima changed his plans 😛

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, either it was a cut scene (doubt it) or Kojima is hiding something very important between GZ and TPP.

        • BurntFM

          Maybe…….. I’m too excite to think.

    I have a question Nyxus.

    Is MGI going to cover any news related to any future Hideo Kojima games, or just MGS games? We have seen a few articles related to Silent Hill and Hideo Kojima which don’t relate to MGS, and I was wondering if it was something that was going to become normal now that Hideo Kojima and MGS have parted ways.

    • Gatsu

      Nyxus said he will cover news afterwards.

      Damn…sry can’t be sure I remember Nyxus’ answer correctly xD, when he was asked this before :D.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Sweet thanks, will keep an open mind then 🙂

  • Gatsu

    Comrades can you stop arguing already? I’m tired of reading comments like that. Can’t we just wait the last days more peacefully instead of calling each others assholes etc?

    I think it might be more pleasant. Surely when we get a new article by the Nyxus, we can talk/write of other things.

    @Jonquin

What started with beautiful dreams of playing the game became agitated, anxious sweat driven nights. I understand that the stress of the waiting may be affecting some of you like myself, but I ask you this small favor: Vent as I did, don’t turn against each other but turn to another.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      So has konami or whatever Kojima Productions is called now given assurance that MGO will be supported? Id hate to see a couple patches early and have the online experience be riddled with hackers/glitchers/bugs 6 months to a year on.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Has konami give a statement on wether they will support MGO even after the reorganization of the company? Im very worried 6 months into the games life cycle the online will be riddled with problems if it doesnt have a dedicated team

    • Gatsu

      Hmmm I think I haven’t heard confirmation of that :(. But I also haven’t checked twitter for a few days if they have given info.

      I’d like to think that it will be supported, when PC release got pushed so far back too. Let’s hope for the best :D.

    And it has ended (for mgs3) … in about 10 or 15 min I’ll be in tears.

    • Elaborate?

      • vic boss

        O a couple of days ago I posted pictures from the start of the virtuous mission from my last playtrough of mgs3 before I play TPP, so now I have finished it. And its time to move to peace walker.

        • Ahh, I see. That ending man…I can’t listen to Eva’s message without my heart shattering every time…every damn time.

          • vic boss

            I’m exactly the same bro, mgs3 (along with mgs4) are the only video games in the entire gaming industry that make me cry and it happens every goddamn time I see the endings.

    • Janeo

      I just started my last mgs3 play through yesterday, it is the first time I have ever tried European extreme, I always played on extreme but never liked the idea of the game ending once you get caught, I’m liking it so far though it really makes you think about everything you do. I wanted to play through portable ops and peace walker one last time as well but it’s looking like I might have to skip portable ops if I don’t finish mgs3 in time,

      Keepin it real for the fans. We the fans love you Birthday Boy.

  • echolution

    Is it safer now, with 8 days left, to enter safe mode (meaning:blackout mode)? I know spoilers can be sickening, especially when some of my coworkers are hardcore MGS fans who rely heavily on reddit. I should buy another earplugs 🙁

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    First report of a player from the boot camp beating the game has come in via neogaf, were reaching peak spoiler potential.

    He continued his progress at home, he didn’t beat it at the camp

    • PhantomSnake

      The people who choose to leak spoilers deserve a swift kick to their testicular region. In my own opinion.

  • AeroGre

    Quiet is grayfox sorry for spoiler

    Wanna hear a True Fiddling Story?

    So today at the bar I tried to manipulate a girl, to play with her mind to get her to, you know, play with my fiddle, but instead she figured out what I was doing, so instead I got played like a damn fiddle!

    You know what’s worse? Just like Big Boss and Skull Face, we go way back, so for the sake of the conversation let’s call her Pussy Face. So we have never been together, but we worked together, and now she put me in to a 9 days “emotional” comma (which actually improves my TPP experience)

    That being said, next time i find het, I will be ready and murder Pussy Face with my Diamond “Venom” Dog, not for Love, not for Honnor, not for Justice, ALL FOR SEX REVENGE…I mean revenge!

    Wish me luck!

          Cringe-y and depressing, I think you mean.

            That’s one way of looking at it, yes!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, it was just me trying to see the good part from my drama, and improve it with little bit if TPP to make a good paralel story of TPP existing in the dark shadows of our real world!

            Basically i just wanted to show that TPP is a metaphor!

    So when does the review embargo lift? 23or24?

    • Ravenous

      I thought it was supposed to be today, atleast today the Let’s Play’s start, but it could be set to a specific time?
      Anyone here gonna watch the LP’s btw?
      Let us know if they turn out to be full of spoilers?

      • FOX

        Lets play start? İ thougt they’ve been playing last couple days

        • Ravenous

          They had a bootcamp last week, the let’s play I’m talking about is one greg miller from kindafunnygames is gonna do, he’s going to do a let’s play TPP every day leading up to and after TPP’s release for some reason 😉

          I don’t understand how Konami actually agreed to more or less sanction “leaks” from kfg this way, and IRC it’s supposed to be an hour long every day, so spoilers are inbound :

  • NakedSnake85

    It was 1998. I was 13. i bought my playstation that year.
    I went to the store that by chance i came to work for 3 years 17 years later when i was still studing at my university. The salesman at the times said to me “hey you can buy one game and choose one for free”
    i bought fifa 98 and i saw a weird case with 3 words on it. Metal Gear Solid” i flipped the case and i saw images of an agent in a base.. i said.. well this one.
    The next day i came to realize that that game was something incredible. The voice acting the cinematic feel the cinematic direction the music and the tension was amazing. The characters really stood out for me. i was blown away. Instantly it changed the way i was thinking about video games as a medium, Needless to say that it became my favorite game of all time. it was even better than every movie i ve ssen at the time. Sometimes i caught my self making an impression of david Hayter’s Snake in words like “ok” or when i was mad at something u know the classic “ghuuuah” you know…
    i completed Mgs1 maybe 60 times in every possible way. and the “best is yes to come” Chills…
    2 years later
    I was expecting a sequel. i was even making up my own stories about mgs2 before its announcement.
    then i saw MgsE3 trailer.. Well for those who remember that trailer was the coolest thing ever that year. The graphics were amazing (mgs2 still holds up to this day) the momevement of snake the shadows everything looked so cool and so next gen.i waited two long years to play Mgs2. i even bought a Ps2 for that reason. Mgs2 was the one of the three games i ever bought for ps2. Mgs3 was the third ; )
    My reaction when i first saw Raiden..was wtf? who is this ? aww cmon.. i hated mgs2 for at least six months. i sold to a friend of mine and with the money i bought Metallicas St anger(yes yes i know.. epic fail)
    But i regreted it soon and i bought Mgs2 again. I Dived into the story this time a liitle more deeply. I analyzed every aspect of the game and i came to realize that mgs2 was a masterpiece in its own right.. maybe not what i expected for a sequel but a great title non the less.
    In 2003 i finished hight school and i moved in the second biggest city of greece to study (im a teacher)
    so i was unable at the time to follow news etc about a possible threequel/ in 2004 i was walking on the street and i saw a PSM magazine and in its cover Snake!! i bought it..Mgs3 snake eater ! wow cool “i said”
    I bought snake eater. My favorite game of all time. need i say more? Big Boss.. the boss.. the setting the music the characters and that ending… man.. you cant dislike Mgs3 for any reason..i replayed mgs3 100 times in every difficulty and another maybe 50 times in Hd collection ; )
    4 years gone by.i broke up with my long time girfriend at that time after 5 years i was having fun with my friends and enjoyed my time during my studies.as for metal gearI was eager to find out the story behind the patriots.. who are they what is going on in solid snakes timeline?
    mgs4 came.Again i bought a console just to play mgs4(later i bought many ps3 titles).That last week prior to its realese i ve set a count down in my phone and i replayed every game 1-3 twice.. i was so excited…Day one mgs4 edition for me. i completed it in a day. i skipped all classes and i went out only to pay utilities. i took a break only to eat and sleep for two hours..Mgs4 was good.. it had great moments like the return on shadow moses..and big boss’ return during the ending..but to this day is my leats favorite metal gear.. idk why..but make no mistake.. i love it.
    I was so sad that peace walker was on psp.. i had no desire to buy a psp so i skipped peace walker at the time even though i wanted to play it badly.. i remember i followed the teasing at that site daily.. you know the site that revealed rising and peace walker together ; ) yeah that one.
    2011.. another relationship of mine ended this time in bad terms. it was a turning point at my life in 2011-2012.. my studies were at an end and i had to leave my home the city i was living the past 7.5 years and join the army for a year..spring 2012 finally i graduated and i returned briefly in my hometown before joining the army in november 2012. after hard military training for 30 days i returned home to rest for a week..when i saw trailers for GZ and the phantom pain .needless to say that once again metal gear in me awoken all those feelings and passion for my beloved game. my time in millitary was one of the best moments of my life. imagine being in a fort on a mountain isolated but not competly. i was awarded a title during my service which was a proud moment for me. i became a corporal! deep down i knew that to command a group of guys i had to respect em and try to be politely stict..if that makes any sense. my service ended… i was checking every day for news trailers etc for the phantom pain.. my millitary service ended.. i moved in a new place this time in my hometown with my Fiancee that i met during my service i found a part time job at that time (now i teach as i was supposed to do 😉 ) but still despite all the changes in my life i feel one more time into kojimas trap.. i was desperate for Gz and TPP.. im not a gamer.. the only franchise that i follow with dedication is Mgs.
    2014. Gz.. for me it was a great experience but…yeah..too short.. it made me hungry for the phantom pain.. Sins of the father… im still listening to it daily maybe 3-4 times/day.
    And we came to this day/ 9 days before release.. i dont know what to say exactly.. for me those 3 years waiting TPP symbolize so many changes in my life..but deep down it makes look back and realize that what we have done in the past makes us who we are today.. we have the power to atone for our sins to make our selves a better person each and every day. i know its just a game.. but waiting for the phantom pain it shows me today that im the same person with that kid that bought mgs in 1998 but different in so many ways. that is the most important thing Kojima did for me.. not the the game it self..not the graphics or the gameplay.. but all the feelings you express through something you love for so many years..
    Take that with you MGI.
    enjoy the Phantom Pain. it ll be epic
    sorry about the long read : )

    • solideater

      It looks like Metal Gear has played a great part in defining your life :-).

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Holy crap you are hardcore. I am not much of a gamer either. I actually bought ps4 just for mgs. Only game I have is ground zeroes and I preordered phantom pain. I remember several games back when they came out on both ps2 and PS3 and the old gen wasn’t just short on graphics but also big content difference. Didn’t want to take that chance with phantom pain. Now you guys are saying the difference is pretty much just graphics. Hopefully I didn’t make a mistake LOL

    • Gatsu

      Wow that was some great reading :D.

    Only one more week…we’re almost there :D.

    • JJBYACH

      Sadly I doubt I will be playing the game on its release week…

      I crie evry tim.

      • korruption

        At best, I’m sure I’ll be able to play on the week of release, but I’m not hugely counting on the CE arriving on release day. I could give in to impatience by buying it digitally while waiting for the physical, but that’ll be like donating money to Konami. *shudder*

        • Lewis

          I got 2 holidays on 2nd and 3rd of September. Hope my CE is coming right on the 1st, but if not, I have a plan: I would buy a new Day One Edition to start playing immediatly, and when I get my CE – I’ll give my DOE to my bro.

        • ddmaster

          Where are you buying from and from who?

          • korruption

            The way you posed that question sounds like you’re asking about a drug deal. XD

            EBGames, and I wish i hadn’t.

    • Arestras

      Why do we have to wait another week? Just to suffer? Every night I can feel the hype. The social life I’ve lost,… You feel it too, don’t you?

      • Shalashaska

        hahahha god that was so awesome

    • Mini gear

      hearing “only one week” my kojima its actually almost here…… SO CLOSE

    • Shalashaska

      ALMOST! Man it makes me sad i wont be able to play this as much as i want in the opening week..i wull be going to a friends place to play this however.. so i’ll get a taste of it but i wont be able to play all night and everything.. it will be so hard :’(

    • solidsnack

      i’m dying over here i’ve never been this hyped for anything!!

  • echolution

    Will there be dlcs for TPP? Hopefully it’s not a pay to play based.

    • BigBoss_S_Rank

      As far as we know right now, there are no DLC’s planned. This might change however so please keep that in mind. And although micro-transactions are a thing (ugh….) everything, EVERYTHING, can be acquired without spending a single extra cent.

      Micro-transactions are only there to help speed up certain processes wich might for instance help you acquire that sweet sniper rifle you’re craving a bit faster. But again, it’s not required, you can get that sniper rifle in due time without spending a single extra penny. 🙂

      • stagueda

        According to the Twitter Q&A all the weapons and gadjets are developed In game time but the motherbase platforms are in real time, so the microtransactions should be for MB mainly i guess

        • Shalashaska

          Good. Fast forward that with the time on your console. NOT PAYING AN EXTRA dime to konami.

        • BigBoss_S_Rank

          Ah fair enough, thanks for chipping in that bit of information. I was under the impression that it also related to weapons and items, but i remembered that those are developed almost instantly. So you’re right about the motherbase platforms.

    • DDADDB

      I would imagine that if there were to be any DLC it would revolve around MGO3 (Maps,Weapons) or cosmetic DLC for snake.

      Any story DLC would need to be written by Kojima and well….That wont be happening :(.

  • FrankWhite

    Im so angry man! People outside of Japan get nothing! I NEED THAT SOUNDTRACK!!

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I mean we get the game and CE and its not like itunes wont have it eventually

      • FrankWhite

        but look at those beaaautiful CD cases 🙁

        • No Place For Hayter

          And itunes does not sell lossless audio.

          • FrankWhite

            They want us to suffer. it´s all part of the Phantom Pain.

      • FrankWhite

        But thats not even the worst part.There are Books in Japan which conclude the whole MGS Story by viewing everything that happened in MGS1 etc. from the view of another character. These books will never be translated in english..

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          I mean the MGDB did a pretty good job and id be supprised if they dont do a 2.0 of that.

          • FrankWhite

            *http://*metal-gear.net/2015/08/03/new-illustration-book-metal-gear-solid-substance-i-shadow-moses-for-pre-order-on-amazon/
            you think they will translate those books?

  • Edward Wokhands

    This is still my favorite trailer for MGS V. It’s by far the best in my opinion.

    https://youtu.be/nSfajBs2nyQ

    I can’t wait to play this part and other parts like it! It’s suspicious to me that we’ve basically seen zero reference to what we see in this trailer since it released. SO EXCITED!

    I wonder if him pretending it was made by another developer is a reference to the story and theme of the overall game?

    Just to build a little more hype share your favorite trailer and why you love it! I love the atmosphere of this one, the ambiguity and tension are typical of MGS. (And of all my favorite movies, TV shows, books and music.) Even when you 100% a MGS game there’s still a chance that you missed something and that there is some sort of deep symbolism going on. That makes them eternally replayable.

    • Tong Ninja

      I loved all of them but I really liked the 2015 Elegia E3 trailer! 😀
      That trailer sets the tone for TPP. haha
      Also it left us with a lot of questions … which is cool!

      I have a feeling I’m going to really enjoy Kojima’s final launch trailer for TPP. 🙂

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah, that was a great trailer, but you’re right they’re all great. I think the trailers that Kojima has released since this original one all contain misdirection to a certain extent. I think that what we’ve seen is a small segment of the story. I mean what the hell IS going on in that trailer I just posted and why has it never been mentioned since? (Unless there’s a trailer I missed?) I wonder what happens when Big Boss escapes and how he gets strong again? Do we play that or will it just cut to him… or actually… knowing Kojima we’ll get a cheesy training montage! THE HYYYYYYPE!!!

        I can’t wait to see that side of the game and what it’s all about.

  • Tong Ninja

    Just to let everyone know it’s Hideo Kojima’s Birthday today (over here)! 😀 😀
    He turns 52 this year! He looks 30-35 though (haha nanomachines!).

      • Mauricio Acosta

        This makes me feel so much better! Thanks CrimsonFox!

      • Mauricio Acosta

        By the way, did you get to finish the story all the way through?

      • stagueda

        Good day crimsonfox, sorry for for bothering but do you have any ideia when the MGI review will be up? Thanks 🙂

        • Mauricio Acosta

          It will be Today at 8pm EST 5 PST!

    • solidsnack

      i got spoiled with one thing but i’m not sure i believe it

    • JJBYACH

      Don’t worry any spoiler for any MGS game sounds stupid when written down:

      Solid Snake is a clone of Big Boss

      In MGS2 instead of playing a Snake you play as some blonde affeminate man the entire game – oh and the whole game is also a simulation.

      Ocelot trains himself to become a doppelganger of Liquid.

      You could do this with any plot point. It’s all about the context the plot point is presented in.

      • Mauricio Acosta

        That is so true! Regardless, there are so many unanswered questions that just make me giddy and excited.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Me

      • Mauricio Acosta

        Don’t worry brother, the guide can only spoil so much!! We will be super shock once we play the game!! I am sure of it!

    • Gatsu

      I haven’t, because I don’t look for them. But the spoilers might be looking for me though…sooner or later.
      Also haven’t watched any videos at youtube either for 1-2 weeks, while I usually do it every day :).

      I believe in the NO.

      i was having such a sad and miserable day till i saw this
      hahahaa

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Im glad I can help out my fellow diamond dog

  • Mini gear

    why cant the game be out today ;-:

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      So the reviews can come out and the pre orders can come in the week before, probably the biggest time for pre orders.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Might as well be with the amount of spoilers being thrown around everywhere.

  • James Raskalov

    It’s annoying that all these new titles are getting spoiled.
    Somebody spoiled Arkham Knight’s ending for me a week before I got it.

    This shit doesn’t benefit anyone, and it’s not funny.
    It’s annoying.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Its been happening for a long time, mass effect 2 clone sheppard was spoiled on the front page of IGN. I personally love the spoilers, but I think they should stay in the spoiler threads where they belong.

      • James Raskalov

        If people want to go ahead and spoil the games for themselves, that’s fine by me, but I don’t want to know how a game that I REALLY want to play ends.
        Just yesterday, some jerkass spoiled the ending for the third storyline of Fire Emblem Fates for me. It’s out of hand.

    • Gatsu

      I 100% agree.

  • vic boss

    This is one of the best mgs3 videos I’ve seen. Its about the relationship of Big Boss with the Boss, and man this video had me in tears by the end the first time I saw it. I wonder if we’ll see the Boss again in TPP in some kind of form.
    https://youtu.be/eDkrREn0k4U

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      I hope Big Boss reveals to ocelot that MGS3 Spoiler THEJOYISOCELOTSMOTHER

      • Mauricio Acosta

        The funny thing is that it was SUCH a small part of Metal Gear Solid 3 that it was probably missed by most people who played it.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          And yet it’s one of the biggest connections between bb and ocelot.

          • Mauricio Acosta

            Which is where Ocelot’s love for Big Boss come from.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            I think you have it backwards, big boss probably has a lot of mixed emotions, including love, towards ocelot, while ocelot respects big boss, he doesn’t know who his mother was. The boss trained big boss, making her more of a mother figure to big boss than her own flesh and blood, taken at birth by the patriots.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, in some form we will see her, I guess you could call her the “Phantom” of the MGS series.

    • Intense man good stuff

  • MichaelPayneV

    Looks like a lot of you took the story I said waaaaaay to seriously, so let me tell you something.

    1 of the things I learned from Hip-Hop music is that in order to tell a good story, you tell half the truth, and the same is here, half the truth, exaggerated to fit TPP.

    That’s all. V has come to!

    • No Place For Hayter

      That and the crazy and eccentric wording. It looked so crazy to me I ran as hard as I could.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      What did I miss?

      • NakedSnake85

        seems like a guy is playing through the game right now

        • Danny Patten

          Any source for that yet? :/
          I’m always cautious when people make those claims. For all we know, I could be playing it right now^^

          • NakedSnake85

            =but you dont.. right?

          • Danny Patten

            hehe, if i would, trust me i wouldn’t hang around here right now^^

          • NakedSnake85

    • Raven_Sorrow

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      fake. they dont have permission to sell the game. This has already been debunked.

    • kirtanloorii
    • Gatsu

      I’m so jealous (and annoyed) that they get to play it already :(…
      Stupid Finnish stores >:C…gimme mine!

  • BurntFM

    Well……I’ll be getting off til after the 1st. I can’t handle all the drama and temptation and the wait isn’t making it any easier.
    There has been too much chaos on the internet. People are going insane it feels like this on every website people are out for blood. See you Diamond Dogs on the other side.

  • AeroGre

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      He left IGN in january to start his own twitch and youtube channel. kindafunny. It starts 5pm west coast time (pacific)

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Anybody else find it sweet kojimas birthday is a week before the phantom pain?

    • Gatsu

      Yeah it’s awesome =), a good time to celebrate birthday!

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Hi guys. I’m too afraid of being spoiled to search the answer on the net so I’ll ask you: Is the FOB attack/defense mode available from day 1 or just when MGO comes to? Thank you 🙂

    • Ravenous

      Yes it is, MGO on the other hand is delayed untill October for consoles and January for steam

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Thank you 🙂

        • Ravenous

          You’re welcome 🙂

    • VenomSnake123

      It’s day one 🙂

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Thanks 🙂

  • Gatsu

    Wasn’t the review embargo gonna be lifted now on Sunday?

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      review embargo confusion is currently wether the embargo lifts tonight at 9pm pacific and 9am tomorrow pacific. And that skull is one of at least 2 posts ive seen since the leak that have heavy implications. IDK if its timing or trolling! I LOVE THIS

      • Gatsu

        Alrighty :), thanks Gray! So I guess I’ll know for sure when I wake up, already 2am here :3 …

    • Golgari

      Be sure to write smth at Kojima’s twitter. He is 52 today. Yaay!

      Also, 1 hour and 20 minutes left for Review embargo at least from Gregg Miller. Check out KindaFunnyGames youtube channel for gameplay stream. there will be 5 missions and no spoilers.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Is that 5 mission thing over the period of a week? I bet theres going to be alot of messing around and exploring mechanics considering he has 6 days of streaming before release

      • Gatsu

        Hmmm…I will write :).

        Not sure do I want to watch the stream, even if it don’t spoil, because I have seen so much already. I kinda want to just go blindly to TPP now so it’ll feel a bit more fresh, instead of watching all those missions played before I jump in.

        And even though Greg said no spoilers, he might think differently of the word like I do.
        Anyway, Thanks for the info bro :).

  • NakedSnake85

    Hey its Kojima sans’s birthday guys!

  • GrayFoxWasTaken
    • Ishmael

      Greg Miller sucks cock for every like.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I mean he quit IGN with a few of his friends to go play video games and provide their fans content. They get decent support from twitch and patreon so I dont see a problem with it. The dude beat cancer and he owns a doxin.

        • Ishmael

          couldn’t care less.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            ok.

  • Shporet

    I just figured out that the music that plays when you find paz in boiler room is a slowed down version of the song that plays when you fight her in pw. Never paid attention to the names of songs….

    • NakedSnake85
  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    press start and respawn have posted reviews of the phantom pain on their websites

    • NakedSnake85

      100% ? 😮

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        someone on neogaf said 9/10 and 100% but IDK because the traffic is crashing the websites

        • NakedSnake85

          i just saw the review on respawn.. 100%

      • markr96

        Here is the review score at the end

        and im seriously worried about reading the reviews incase there are spoilers… like wow its not even real how paranoid i am haha, when it was the witcher i was head first into all the reviews (prob coz i already knew the direction it was gonna go…)

  • GrayFoxWasTaken
  • PrinceHeir

    Badass Kojima and Shinkawa-san 😀
