Kojima: I will keep creating for the rest of my life

Today, Hideo Kojima turned 52. However, age doesn’t seem to slow him down one bit.

Despite everything that has happened at Konami over the past months, it doesn’t seem to have dampened Kojima’s desire to create things. As he tweeted today:

Hideo-Kojima-Tweet-52nd-Birthday

Those who were worried Kojima might have been discouraged by all that has happened, they can rest easy. We don’t know yet what it is Kojima plans to keep creating, but wether it be games or something else, we have something to look forward to in the future.

Speaking of Hideo’s creations, reviews of The Phantom Pain have been pouring in and the game doesn’t disappoint. It has received perfect scores from various outlets, such as IGN, GameSpot and Examiner, and (last but not least) crimsonfox’s review on Metal Gear Informer awarded the game a 10 as well.

Kojima also announced the time schedules for his final Metal Gear Solid V trailer, go here to see when it launches in your time zone.

And of course: happy birthday Kojima-san!

Cheers-from-Granin

  • VenomSnake123

    Kojima is the best!

    • ddmaster

      Kojima’s been Breaking Bad up in there.

  • Boldizar

    No one should be allowed to post reviews before a game comes out, no matter how “spoiler free” they may be. This generate hype for day one sales thing is a joke.

  • Daburcor

    This Kojima kid… He’s going places~!

    • Michalien

      Not Konami
      But places

  • Michalien

    Happy Birthday Kojima-san

    This is really bad

    we have to do something about this

    • Golgari

      It’s bullshit. Relax. I don’t know why Gamespot did this… This is not really true. Basically by playing the game you will earn MB coins to play the game.

        Thx dude

        And that on KJ-san Birthday

    Kojima-san if you read my comment, Arigatou for everything you have given to us. Enjoy your life and I wish you good luck to future projects :).

          Indeed
          Just changed it so that the Steam Users can recognize me easier 😀

  • FOX

    Well i do hope he will be hired by a big company like Take Two or found his own if he can so he can come up with a massive project like TPP

    • Michalien

      He should Kickstart a own Company
      His own Mother Base Productions
      So that he doesn’t has to worry about any of his projects ever being changed in a way he don’t wants to

  • Golgari

    Thank you Kojima For Everything. I can’t wait to see what you will do next.

    May life’s brightest joys illuminate your path, and may each day’s journey bring you closer to your dreams! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

          I was also joking , I kinda keep forgetting sarcasm doesn’t translate well on the internet.

  • Y Jebai

    His is a legacy of fiction only the fewest can ever reach. He deservedly ranks among the best and the brightest. His name will forever be remembered along with those of Tolkien, Cameron or Shuster and Siegel. His creations have enriched the lives of so many and brought us together to form a community not of hateful debate, anger or disrespect, but one of friendship, loyalty and excitement. His name will go down in history not as a monster who brought a catastrophe to video games and the fictional world, but as that of a hero, who helped forge a generation of thoughtful, creative and inspired people. Us. So hereby I want to thank Konima-San for all the greatness he brought us, all the inspiration he has inspired and all the emotional moments he has delivered. And additionally, I wish to thank each and every one of you for being such amazing people. You truly are some of the greatest people alive and I am glad to be part of you, comrades. Love to all of you. Here’s to you.

    • SNKtheStampede

      Konima-san… Sounds like Kojima+Konami fusion. Maybe it’s a lapsus born by your unconscious hope. But the message well represent our feelings 🙂

      • Y Jebai

        That was a type-o indeed. Maybe it was unconscious, though. Maybe they have found a way to control me using my subconscious. Anyway, I’m glad the feelings came over as intended 🙂

    Happy birthday, Kojima-san.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I don’t, 27 years of gaming is enough, he should move to what he wanted from very beginning, the Movie industry.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        He said he will create, I think that shows he will do what he wants, and he’s earned it

        • MichaelPayneV

          Create doesn’t mean Video Games, plus I really want to see how Video handles a real Camera!

          • H’m

            Imagine if he directed the mgs film…
            it would have to have more seqs than the fast and furious franchise 🙂
            and david hayter doing the script-writing..of course while dressed in his guyver costume

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            Create means doing what he wants. thats all that matters

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly, and we all knows he wants to make Movies!

        • Ishmael

          what i really would like to see is kojima as producer behind an music album. the songs he picked for his trailers were fantastic. His unconventional approaches in creating games, trailers etc opens him different ways for intensive creations. I’m sure he also could handle those skills for music.

      • Hayters Gonna Hayte

        It would be great to see what comes out of a Kojima-made movie, tho 😀

  • If I could, I would follow your footsteps Mr.Kojima o7
    [I just love this moment]

    • Gatsu

      I love this moment too, the escape part is so bizarre and beautiful.

  • So when is the new trailer by the man releasing??

    • H’m

  • Yaro

    OK guys! We all know how effective it was our campaign of the #AHIDEOKOJIMAGAME on twitter.
    Let’s do it again but instead let’s make it as a gift to Hideo and Kojima Productions.

    Hideo stated once the the “V” in TPP stood out of victory regarding victory of japanese games over the west once more. Lets ALL members of this site tweet him and Konami. #AHIDEOKOJIMAGAME #VICTORY

    Lets flood twitter and trend this shit! Fly my babies!

  • H’m

    With the trend of dlc being announced the same time as the game these days, its nice to see this isnt the case with mgs 5, but i wonder with kojima leaving.. was there anything in the works for down the track or will we see any future dlc, new side story missions, skins, etc…?

    • Lol of course there will be dlcs for mgsv. Every game has them. Rising has it. Mgs4 slightly had it. It’s just what games are now…. 60% on disc

  • PsychoMantis18

    Happy Birthday you beautiful bastard!!!

  • JJBYACH

    Here’s to you Kojima – A rank to surpass even the Boss…

    • Lewis

      Helicopters lost – 0.

      You still have a long road ahead!

      • Lose 5 and see if you get an F haha. That’s probably how miller loses his arm. Biting it off watching that.

        • Lewis

          Man, I lost it at your reply.

    • Mats

      I didn’t even know there was an E rank

      You sir, have my respect

      • JJBYACH

        Neither did I…

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      I didn’t know you could even get a score worse than C. I honestly thought that was the limit. Well done.

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, I wonder if E is the worst?

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          I can’t imagine an F is possible but maybe. I thought C was the worst and I’ve gotten nearly 60 kills in a 30-minute playthrough of Eliminate the Renegade Threat, as opposed to finishing it killing only the targets in 2 minutes.

          • JJBYACH

            I tried doing this again and only got a D rank, but at 71 kills, rescued the secret prisoner and completed in 51 mins…

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            lol

    • Venom_Sina

      At least he/she rescued 3 prisoners!!!

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, I accidentally killed the secret prisoner though – driving a jeep around the extraction point near the cells is a bad idea.

      • ddmaster

        He should be given a custom “K” rank.

    • James Raskalov

      I remember I got an S rank on the Ground Zeroes mission even though I killed 65 people in the span of two alerts, which had me running and gunning through the mission.
      Since I saved all 7 prisoners, had reflex turned off, didn’t retry once, and did it in 27 minutes, I got an S rank.

      I have a screenshot of it on my PS4, and set it as my PS Vita start screen.

      • JJBYACH

        Lol. It’s a kinda inconsistent system, I think they will have fixed this problem in TPP judging by the wealth of variables determining your rank compared to GZ.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, they screwed the pooch in GZ making the S-rank point based instead of requirement based, doesn’t matter how badly you play as long as you get enough points you can get an S-rank, by speeding through it and getting all POW’s

    • Cosima Caminades

      That’s what I call skill.

      Good luck brother =).

    • Phosphobos

      Good luck! I want to see your drawing finished, Paint deserves more use.

    • No Place For Hayter

      At least you have something to fill the time with, I’m bored to death waiting for TPP, without my work this week I would die, lol.

      • korruption

        I digi-bought Until Dawn just to pass the time (and partly because I feel like I haven’t been shitting enough lately). I liked Beyond: Two Souls (even though it’s very flawed) and Life is Strange, so I uhh… might like this… Most likely I won’t react in time to all of the QTEs on the first playthrough, so someone’s gonna die. =)

        Hell if it’s good enough, I may actually consider playing it even after getting MGSV.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, I have my eye on that one, going to look it up after TPP, if I like what I see I will play it, lol. But having a new game to play to pass the time helps, lol. I thought it would take me longer to finish the MGS series, but after so much experience and on an easier difficulty and skipping optional content I really just blew through them, lol.

          • korruption

            The game was about ~36gb and my connection is kinda shit, I thought I’d have to wait *clears throat* Until Dawn for it to finish!

            If it turns out well enough, I think Supermassive will be quite flattered to hear that their game was a good way to pass the time while waiting for MGSV. Someone should write that in a review. XD

          • No Place For Hayter

            “*clears throat* Until Dawn for it to finish!”

            Aha….Aha……Aha…… I see what you did there, lol.

      • MrVux007

        (if i may ask) what is your line of work?….im really interested what other people in MGI do for torturing themselves…i mean for a living 😉

            Wish i could retire from my main job one day,earn enough money from it and buy myself a bakery shop…..or a smoothie bar 😀

  • MichaelPayneV

    • No Place For Hayter

      DEFINITELY worth watching, thankfully SOMEONE gets it, to many people are stupidly swayed by the greedy corporations to understand even the simple ideas behind such a thing, I know I will love TPP but that does not mean I’m blind to its faults.

    • JJBYACH

      Yeah, I am trying to kill time by playing GZ and trying to break the fox engine and game design. Was playing around with light sources (drove a jeep in front of the cells) – alomst looks like Chico’s character model is unfinished, or they used really low res textures due to the dark lighting in all the scenes he is in.

      • DavidHSnake

        I remember having an experience like in the 2nd pic. Except I had two soldiers and Chico floating just outside the prison area’s fence.

    • 6 days…. Ahhh can’t take it anymore.

    • 45 days ago I bought the HD collection coz I was getting mad at waiting and worse, I was just missing PW in the whole series (what a shame, I realized). As soon as I got in PW, I quickly went : “Yeah ! an extra MGS”. 10 days later, I went well, I finished MGS3 3 times but let’s have a shot in HD !! The problem is that now, I am playing GZ+PW+SE at the same time, which makes my reflexes tricky to maintain across the various controls / gameplays (that’s why I regularly keep S ranking various missions on GZ…). I am even thinking about nailing SOL again now… GZ+PW+SE+SOL…Is it normal doctor ?

      • DavidHSnake

        Dont do nanomachines man…its bad for you

        • Playing MG since MSX2 (nanos were not even a topic at this time, I guess it is not nanos but something to deal with FoxDie virus infecting me). Kojima Productions is the best game studio on earth.

  • I’m answering questions on Twitter for the next half hour!

    • Gatsu

      I try think of some good ones I haven’t read yet :).

    • korruption

      Sounds great! Here’s one, is there a “shut up” button or option for Miller’s dialogue, or at least have his voice play through the Dualshock 4 like with the iDroid?
      Yes, that’s a legit question – no joke. =(

      • I play with headphones at home and used them the entire time at the event. I can’t comment on the speaker functionality but no. There isn’t a shut up Miller button.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, I love the speaker on the controller, but I always use headphones, lol.

          • PS Pulse Headphones are my weakness haha

          • glitchbomb

            I F %>þ*ING LOVE mine.

          • No Place For Hayter

        • korruption

          My bad, I didn’t specify in circumstances where he feels the need to tell you the exact same instructions over and over again. Rigging the antennas with C4 explosives for example.

          • Early in the game when you use your equipment and weapons he explains everything so you understand. As you progress the calls become more story related and the game let’s you play the way you like.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Did you ever feel like any of the cassette tapes should have been cutscenes? Or did they all make sense as cassette tapes?

      • JJBYACH

        Like the Paz rape and vagina bomb cassette? – No thanks, it was hard enough listening to it…

        Ps – we will have all the answers in 7 days.

        • No Place For Hayter

          While I wish the cassettes in GZ were cutscenes, they couldn’t really be a custscene as Big Boss was not present for the events and thus we don’t get to experience them first hand.

      • There are revelations that are made in cut scenes that expanded on in cassettes. Which is awesome.

        But the important cassettes that make the revelations are all high lighted in yellow. So you can’t miss them.

        There was maybe 2 cassettes that I felt would have been cool to see in cut scenes.

        • No Place For Hayter

          “There are revelations that are made in cut scenes that expanded on in cassettes. Which is awesome.” OK I like that, use the cassettes to expand upon important information 🙂

          “But the important cassettes that make the revelations are all high lighted in yellow. So you can’t miss them.” OK so while it is a cassette tape it screams HERE I AM, I’M IMPORTANT! 🙂

          “There was maybe 2 cassettes that I felt would have been cool to see in cut scenes.” Lol can’t wait for those cassettes, I’m glad the number is low though.

          Thank you so much for the answer 🙂 knowing more about the cassette tapes was the one thing I really wanted to know to ease my mind, and now I’m at ease, lol, thanks comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

    • HunterSpetsnaz

      I hope its not too late, here are my questions:

      I guess, the first time you do a story mission is like:
      Select Mision > Cutsceene > gameplay > (Cutsceene) > Gameplay > Cutsceene of ending

      If I redo any mission again will i be able to see all the cinematics like if it where the first time I do the mission? if I miss or do anything important on MB will I be able to see it again?

      If the answer is no, then:
      Can I “Delete” my current game and start over? (Im on PC so I may do a backup of my actual gamesave) ( I thnk GZ on PC atleast had an option similar to this one)

      Thanks 🙂

      • Yup, you get to see everything again. I did that personally haha

        • HunterSpetsnaz

          Yay! thats very good, thanks 🙂

  • ???what…

    • My guess is that his appearance will change as he walks down that hallway
      Naked Snake —-> Venom Snake

      • Ahh yeah like we already saw. But extended, maybe there’s another after bloody, horny BB

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, skull face, after all skull face is Big Boss from the future, after being burned alive by Solid Snake in MG2 he has come back in time to haunt and fight his past self.

          I think I might pat to see that, lol.

          • I don’t want to play tpp if that is what happens haha

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s 1 thing i don’t understand.

            A Good story is never about the Subject, but about how the Subject is handled.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Now in Fox Engine Snake does look like he has lost weight, on the PS2 he looked way too buff for what The Boss has said. Plot hole fixed!

      • No Place For Hayter

        The bandana is a bit extreme, too big and curled too much weirdly, I doubt that would fit on the boss’s head, so NEW PLOT HOLE, (lol)

        • MichaelPayneV

          Is the exact same bandana from MGS3!

          • No Place For Hayter

            No this one is much bigger, as in much taller.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, that is due to Kiefer’s huge forehead, plus it looks more realistic this way!

          • No Place For Hayter

            True, and true, the only thing I actually dislike about it is the abnormal wrinkles in the middle of the bandana.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I guess the bandana is wet.

  • VenomSnake1974

    I think I’m gonna kill my retailer; dumbass didn’t answer tre pre-order mail from Konami, so he coldn’t get the special edition…

    • No Place For Hayter

      For a retailer he doesn’t seem very much in tune with the industry.

      • VenomSnake1974

        No shit… I’m slightly pissed off, you know; maybe I try ebay…

        • korruption

          He probably kept it for himself to resell for double the price.

          • VenomSnake1974

            Well, I wish him medicines.

  • ominonarepus
  • If you have a question I’ll answer it here friend!

    • Cool. Okay, so with the weapon customisation. I remember seeing cross overs. Like assault rifle attachments on SMGs. How crazy does it go? Is it limitless?

      • It’s not completely limitless. But it is fucking INSANE when it comes to the mission about the “Legendary Gunsmith” do EVERYTHING that you can do. This customization is unlocked by doing this mission perfectly. And it’s totally misable.

        • Aight cheers man. I plan to take TPP slowly to not miss a thing. Gotta get a .50 cal pistol with under barrel shotgun haha

  • PrinceHeir

    Ontanjoubi Omedetou Kojima-san!!

    Will post older Metal Gear trailers as we move closer to the release date next week ^^

  • Ha ! Now that the notes are out, press want to know, comments are popping everywhere. BUT the Force could be felt far before the end of the embargo, right ? xD

    Even if those new comers would have ranked it 0/10, I would have bought it blindly.

  • VenomSnake123

    An unboxing of the PS4 TPP edition has been uploaded!

    • korruption

      I think I’ll change my name to Salty Snake. =(

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      if it comes to the us im getting it

  • Snake

    Nexus delete if you want sorry WARNING SPOILERS!!!!

    • DarpaLT.Sigma_

      Niiiiiiice

    • There’s no spoilers. Just gameplay and small cutscene with Kaz and BB that you can’t hear with them talking over it

    • rhusunlimited

      Whoa… the dialogue in that opening cutscene was amazing…

  • NameUndecided

    I’ve a question that I don’t want to keep held in any longer. I’m not active on Twitter and this is the only MG/videogame board I’m visiting lately…

    Does anyone know if there is truth to the rumor that if a buddy (D. Dog!!) dies in a mission, that they are dead for the rest of the game?

    I’m worried about this. If Ground Zeroes is any indication, sirens and gunshots are going to be blaring allllll the damn time when I’m playing. And I worry for D. Dog. I’m afraid I’m going to have to keep him confined to Mother Base like an overly-protective parent. (And by over-protective I mean not dropping him into a desert or forest where bullets are sure to be flying all over the place.)

    Big thanks if anybody knows the answer.

    • korruption

      This was addressed before; and they said that if a buddy dies, that buddy is dead for good. I expect I’ll be reloading the save a lot. But based on how D-walker was automatically fultoned out once it hit critical condition, I hope such is the same for the other buddies.

      • NameUndecided

        Thanks. I was pretty sure that’s what was said in one of the recent play though demos, but I was hoping I just misunderstood.

        And yeah it only just registered in me that it’s probably only permanent if someone’s nuts enough to finish the mission after or if their buddy has been taken down within it.

        If the worst thing happens, hopefully there will be an hour long cut scene of an elaborate doggy funeral at Mother Base. (I keep coming up with ways to somehow be disappointed with this game.)

        • korruption

          Damn that’d be too harsh, if I saw a scene like that, I’d be crushed… then reload the save if possible. Still, I’ll have seen what cannot be unseen and be haunted forever because of it. =(

          I’ve got plenty of reasons to dislike this game, most of them boiling down to the fact that I totally suck. So I blame myself. Basically the opposite attitude of DSP.

          • NameUndecided

            I just think that funeral *needs* to happen because everybody’s got to pay their respects while the game also drives home that “Look at what you did! There are consequences to your negligence!!” point to the player.

            And yeah this game is probably going to be rough (ruff! ugh. sorry.) for me, too. I’m terrible but I fudging love it.
            Big fat LOL at the people down below in this comment section who didn’t know that the E ranking even exists. I eat E rankings for breakfast!! E rankings are all I GET, son! What! What! This game’s story is going to take me a year to finish.

          • korruption

            There’s gonna be a lot of fucked up shit in this game that I’ll say I’m ready for but likely won’t be. If I wasn’t, I’d pass on the game entirely. Or.. entirel-E. See what you did?! XD

    • I am sure D.Dog will make it, unless you don’t love him enough (even though).

      • NameUndecided

        D-:

        If D. Dog dies I’m gonna let out one long yell until I find a land mine to jump on.

        • I guess you can save all buddies states and always sacrifice D.Walker (which is my own D.Dog..xD).

      • korruption

        “Not for any nation, ideology, nor revenge… But because YOU FUCKING KILLED MY DOG!!!”

          • I am too mad coz there is fuckin Kryptonite through my brain… Need rest…

  • vic boss

    One think I’ve been thinking about. Does anybody know if the reviewers played the game until it was 100 percent complete , also if they did , did Konami let them see the credits and what comes after the credits ?

    Cause we all know there is always something else in every metal gear after the credits roll. So who knows maybe there is another surprise that not even the reviewers know about.

    • I heavily doubt they 100%’d it. That’s not Kojima style, relax…

    • JJBYACH

      I severely doubt it. I’m pretty sure the game has a peace walker grindy true ending no one got to, but that’s just a hunch…

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    How are you brothers !! I can’t believe how amazing is this week with all the reviews and Tributes to our greatest developer of our time . I’m in a journey of work until Tpp comes out. I’m traveling to the south of my country and many places reminds me The phantom pain and shadow mosses . I just hear the song ” Here’s to you kojima-san and broke my heart . Hope you all are doing well . i’m really sorry for my last fight to some user and i hope all of you have the best day of your life with metal gear solid v. This site is the best place ever !!

    • scarecrow

      Last year I went with my family to Ushuaia. I’ve traveled almost all the south of Argentina, and yeah! I thought the same that some landscapes reminded me of TPP.

      Fue el mejor viaje, muy bellos paisajes camarada
      Saludos 🙂

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Wow dude amazing!!! Well if you came back And there is anytihg you need Count with me camarade . Mgs friends are without frontiers

        • scarecrow

          Without a doubt I will 😀

    • Gatsu

      Well I’m doing excellent thanks for asking Joaquin! TPP is just a few days away and after reading all the superb reviews, I’m sooo ready :D. Have fun on your journey :).

      Fights happen here sometimes, it’s okey brother.

    • ddmaster

      I see what you mean especially in the 2nd image. Get the fulton ready, I see animals in need of some rescuing.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Good luck.

  • That moment in TPP where Gray Fox comes out of nowhere to kill BB. I’ll probably shit myself… If it happens hahaha

  • JJBYACH

    Some guy did a one minute spoiler free review with brand new footage (no context given for the short scenes so no spoilers)

    But holy shit, this game’s cinematography is something else…

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dQC5L9ReI54&feature=youtu.be

    • Mad swag minute.. Haha

    • We were given this footage as well including the cut scenes. I want everyone where to experience there segments in context in your own time.

    • Gatsu

      Damn, I tried to avoid watching it because wanna see all the moments when I play. But goddamn, the cutscenes will be so awesome!

      I need my TPP ! >:O

    • vic boss

      Shit I just want the game now. now. Noooow. The cuts cenes look really good and without a doubt this will be the game of the year

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    all review journalist Didn’t finish the game at 100% . Most of all just reach 40% 50% 55 % Porcent . Looks like “Troy baker statement about Tpp laugh to Skyrim was real ”

    Game of the century

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      Wow 355 comments per 1 minute on ign about whining and rage to The phantom pain . Seems Kojima is the true enemy of casual gamers. I’ve never see something like this. They are salty as hell hahah . Guess we just drink all their tears right ?

      • korruption

        It’s better too late than never to say that the comments section of IGN is pure cancer and I hope all who see this post will take note of this.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          They just hate the game in every single website (Most of them ) go to gamespot right now . got to kotaku . Go to everysingle website who is not fan And you will see the same thing. I’m getting a nice very nice day with this and i will keep showing to the world how amazing Mgs is =)

          • korruption

            Intriguing as your offer is, I’ll lose more brain cells which will be mandatory for playing this game. Hell I think I’ve already lost too much as it is. =(

        • Haters are everywhere, forget about them, they can not go against pure talent. Do you feel real pain each time MG is attacked ? They are getting more and more ridiculous…

          • korruption

            I stay the hell away from comment sections like those. I used to laugh at how fucking stupid they are, but it got to the point where all I could do was shake my head, then I stopped looking at them entirely.

          • Welcome to the club because it has been ages now, everybody is starting / forgetting the challenge again, forgetting what was done this 3 past decades..

      • Hyun Kim

        to be fair , IGN community is really toxic ,is just a bunch of fanboys ,trolls and haters ,all together attacking each other 24/7. i dont take too seriously anything they say.
        they just enjoy flame wars.

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          Yheap we already now but then if you go to 90% of the other websites. you will see the same . This time is not about ign is about gamers as a whole . Metal gear solid is one of the most hated franchise in videogaming . Im not just saying this as opinion. My personal experience even in latin-america – Websites – Forums – Facebooks groups and overall gamers Just do not care at all . Then again dont’ worry. Im just using Tpp game of the decade on ign to proof how stupid gamers are some times =)

          • ddmaster

            They wouldn’t know a good game even if it came up and bite em in the @$$.

          • ddmaster

            Which TPP will. btw

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Yes. For example i do not own a Xbox one but i respect Developers like Remedy . This generation is a fanboy console war all day long . Now you have a multi- platform masterpiece to play but no.. Is boring.. Is mgs. the story is ” Wierd ” . Kojima went full change of sustancial game having less cutscenes and more gameplay. Still” this called gamers ” Doesn’t give a fuck about it.

        • ddmaster

          Thats the problem with the majority of supposed gamers nowadays, they try to act cool by hating thinking that their opinion matters more that way. The truth is it doesn’t matter when a developer with true talent is involved because its good regardless. Words of wisdom: just because you think you have something to say doesn’t mean you should say it.

    • Gatsu

      GOTC indeed :), love all the fantastic reviews.

  • Solidus Türk

    wtf

  • Danny Patten
    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      hehehe so good for mgs fans . We have full positive details and especially in the story =)

      honestly i don’t need a perfect close to the saga with every single detail uncovered . Hell i just want a huge crazy drive storyline that would fuck my mind and then go to the psychologist

  • FMercenary

    I’m feeling a sense of excitement and anxiety all at once just waiting for the release date. The anxiety is not so much for the game itself but I guess it just feels like we’re approaching the end of an era out here in the real world. But maybe it is just me. Man, I need scissors! 61!

    • Mauricio Acosta

      It was 3 AM and I was still full of adrenaline thanks to all those reviews!

  • Fritillary

    I had a full blown anxiety attack just now from wanting TPP to come out already. Maybe I’m too hype for this.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, I really need to just chill and relax more, I know how you feel.

    • korruption

      Mine usually doesn’t come around until a day before it’s supposed to arrive. Time slows to a pause and I’m in a fetal position.

    • Fritillary

      Update…it happened again…I threw up this time.

      This wait may actually be killing me….or it’s something else.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Best guess, more than just TPP, though I guess it wouldn’t help.

  • RecasasX

    This is the only site I trust for no spoilers because everyone here is like fam :D. Stay away from sites that are about just general gaming, especially Steam(they’re freakin ruthless with their discussion titles). I read something I wished I hadn’t, but since Steam is a safe haven for trolls, I am telling myself it was fake.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, considering the amount of fake spoilers, it is best to assume it was fake whether it really was or not. Yeah I have only visited here for the last week, I’m avoiding the rest of the internet, lol.

    • Gatsu

      True, I havent been spoiled yet which I’m glad about. Hope it stay that way for a few days more. I mostly read comments only here, I trust my MGI comrades as this is the best community ^_^.

      Took a little risk in n4g, when read review article comments earlier. But gotta stay away now lol :).

      That’s funny I see what you did there, lol.

      Just wait until tomorrow the trailer will get everyone talking, but to be honest it will be a lot less now that people have blacked out and the fact that a lot of people have actually played the game so a lot less theorizing and guessing because (A) People already know most of it and (B) people don’t care as they are getting the game next week anyway, lol.

      • J_muse72

  • Gawd

    Gamestop has messed up my shipping address for my CE ….. I’ll make diamonds from their ashes…

    • No Place For Hayter

      I moved and had to change my shipping address, needless to say I double checked to make sure they changed it right as of course this would be the only game they would mess up, I just hope they ship it early enough that it gets here on release day.

      • Gawd

        Same and I made her read back the address to me twice … but when I checked today just on a whim it was horribly destroyed … something like a mother base … so then when I call them to make them fix it they tell me that if I change it the order may be …. CANCELLED … my anger.. surpasses The Boss … I only care for revenge … it is all I see … I’m hallucinating

        • No Place For Hayter

          The thing that ticks me off is that I can’t check my updated information, only they can see it, I can ONLY see the information as it was ORIGINALLY set.

          • Gawd

            I’m trying to placate my distraught with references to TPP but it’s too much to bare … I’m creating an place where gamers will always have secure purchases … My ideologies versus Zero’s.. I mean… this guy…

  • MichaelPayneV

    No GO….Let the Dynamic Shadows Downgrade come back to life, i mean who cares about graphics amyway, am i right? :)))

    http://i.imgur.com/2mUinn4.jpg

    All jokes aside. it could just be difference between platforms, as noted by this image of Quiet from the Nvidia Trailer, despite recent videos showcasing the Game, the Nvidia Trailer still has the same Dynamic
    Shadows and Lighting from the E3 2013 Trailer if not actually better, so no need to worry about it, just a compariosn that this community deserevs to know and see, especially those who didn’t watched the Video to stay away from spoiler, i got your back!

    http://i.imgur.com/6JgXw66.jpg

    V has come to!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Best guess, just a different time of day, getting the time exactly the same as seen in past trailers or gameplay would be very hard.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Youre guess is wrong, i watched the Video, they are both arround the same time.

        What i’m talking about are the missing shadows like the one of Big Boss’s Right arm that covers Kaz’s Face in the Red Band Trailer, but that is missing now.

        • No Place For Hayter

          The sun shines that shadow into Kaz’s face so you don’t see it, for example you can see the shadow for Kaz’s glasses on his nose, I doubt it was weirdly downgraded in a way that let BB’s hand have no shadow but still has a shadow for sunglasses, they are still there, just watch the cutscene at a different time of day.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “The sun shines” what sun?!

          • No Place For Hayter

            I’m assuming the light source in the scene is the sun? is it from a light on the roof?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Now, they are both at deep night.

            Now that you mention it, there could aslo be the possibility that in the E3 2013 Trailer, the Power was cut, while in Greg’s Video the lights outside are still on.

            As for the glasses shadows? As i said bellow, it could just be the prioritization of which dynamic shadows are enabled, and which are not, due to PS4’s limitations.

            Looks like you helped me find the answers, thank you!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Cool, no problem, though I highly doubt nothing has changed so, I’m not saying are are completely wrong 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, plus it was never a secret that the Red Band Trailer was the PC version!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            kojima said it was pc

          • MrVux007

            running on last gen specs lol

          • MrVux007

            Its a cross gen game,ofc the game will have limitations on some aspects….but these are not the limitations of current gen,but the last gen consoles… 🙂
            also i watched the video,the dynamic shadows have been improved

          • MichaelPayneV

            Really? The PS4 has limitations, as you know Fox Engine doesn’t work that way, it doesn’t matter if is Cross Gej or not, Fox Engine takes full advantage of each hardware, since the way it works is that is made as a PC Game without having to hold down on the quality when developing the game, then ported to various platforms without any dev. Kit.

            Boy you should have known by now, Hideo duz it!

          • MrVux007

            No it doesnt mate….watch the video from programming and HW development expert,who actually made an analysis…engine development plays a big role in game development…PC version of the game was started in mid-late development,giving it more room for improvements(tech analysis starts at 6:40)

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdNTy0wU1gc

      • I agree. Left is night time and the other is clearly day time

    • MrVux007

      its probably different time of the day,and they probably did some changes to the environment

    • MrVux007

      You do know that PC and PS4 versions will look like the one on the right ?
      The development was in different stage in 2013,hence why PS4 version looks different…while 2015 nvidia trailer showcased the final version of the game on PC and how will it look on PS4(without 4k res ofc)…
      indeed a comparison,that community deserves,just dont bend the facts to your own benefit thank you…

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        How many times I will keep telling you. Cutscenes on tpp looks equally the same one all platforms and only in terms of gameplay is when graphics change like night at day kojima productions statement)

        Are just trying to keep lying to to your self and make an illusion reality? Lol Really not want to fight is just funny how hard are you trying to believe than the consoles versions looks the same on pc and is not. Is not good for your brain brother. Pc is other dimensional game in Mgs ( terms of draw distance ; no pop ups ; graphic enchanted etc) Sometimes you need to let it go. Tpp will be great in every single platform but see the reality

        • MrVux007

          I always stated that PC version will look slightly better in gameplay….

          “How many times I will keep telling you. Cutscenes on tpp looks equally the same one all platforms and only in terms of gameplay is when graphics change like night at day kojima productions statement)”night and day maybe to you,to the majority the difference isnt big…again your are obliged to your opinion,and so am i…

          “Are just trying to keep lying to to your self and make an illusion reality? Lol Really not want to fight is just funny how hard are you trying to believe than the consoles versions looks the same on pc and is not”

          i never stated that they will look the same in gameplay lol?I always stated that there will be few differences,but it will look “pretty much” the same 🙂 And no im not lying to myself or making illusions,im just stating what i see…and before you say it my eyesight was checked before i went to do my mariner contract 2,aswell as my full on physical and mental check up…so im fine doctor rly

          “Is not good for your brain brother” you know what else is bad for the brain…reading your comments

          “Pc is all hall other dimensional game in Mgs ( terms of draw distance ; no pop ups ; graphic enchanted etc) Sometimes you need to let it go. Tpp will be great in every single platform but see the reality”

          Indeed PC will offer more options in terms of graphics,but overral visuals of the game on PC are not mind blowingly different as some people like to claim (IMO)
          Indeed….let it goooo let it gooo

      Also to further add up to my point,there were environment and filter changes….different light sources in the room…here is a “proper comparison”,ALSO they added reflection to Kaz glasses and more shadows,which were absent on red band trailer

      • MichaelPayneV

        You’re pretty good.

      • MichaelPayneV

        As i said, prioritization of which shadows and lighting is on/off!

        • MrVux007

          shadows and lighting are constant…

  • J_muse72

    Mmm, I love that crisp 60Fps!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Now i know who am i gonna cosplay on Halloween!
    Yes, i just called my Halloween costume Cosplay, i know, i’m a geek, and i’m proud!
    PS: Do i look like John enough? (Look at my avatar)

    https://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/2429/202/original.jpg

    • No Place For Hayter

      Close enough i think hard to see, but to be honest cosplay is all about making yourself look like them, nobody looks exactly like a character from media, but they try their hardest to try and make themselves look like them.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Is actually about both, is about chosing a character that looks as close as possible like you, and then becoming him throught makeup,clothing, and last but not least, by getting in to the mindset of the character, thinking like him, talking like him, acting like him.

        That being said, while i was playing MGS3 i was feeling every emotion John felt as if i was him, so it should be really easy for me to become Naked Snake!

        The Problem, i bet making the MGS3 sneaking suit will be expensive as fukk!

  • Venom_Snake
    • That was certainly different. Haha

    • Hussain Alkhalaqi

      Not sure if he was planning to make him air hump or not, eitherways it’s freaking hilarious.

  • No Place For Hayter
    • MichaelPayneV

      My new Facebook and Twitter Background!

      • FMercenary

        Planning on putting that as my background image on my console and PC.

        • MichaelPayneV

          If it was higher res. yeah.

          • FMercenary

            True. Damn it!

      • That one looks like solid not bb

        • No Place For Hayter

          With the arm, horn, scars, eye patch, and everything? plus no bandana, I mean they do look identical on a base form, but there is a lot of differences, so I do see what you mean, but it does look like BB to me, lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            To me Solid looks like a a Half American, Half Japanese Big Boss…actually to me Solid looks like he has features from John, Kaz, Adamska, Eva and The Boss, the facial features of John and Kaz, the Physique, the “Cool” attitude and the eyes of Adamska, the imteligence of The Boss, and the strong personality of Eva, that’s how i see it, V people combined in 1 PErfect Soldier.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Wait, V has come 2…oh sh*t, thsi turned in to a theory, i better delete it!

          • Ravenous

            How can you make out those details?
            Atleast on my phone I can’t really see if there’s a horn, eyepatch or the prosthetic arm 0o

        • Phosphobos

          Well, he is Solid Snake indeed, look at the title of the artwork: “REX”.

      • Gatsu

        Woah :O !

  • captain!

    He’s promised this before. I’m honestly kind of glad he’s breaking away from MGS, but I’d like to see him still exploring the tactical action genre. Maybe a Ghost in the Shell game??

    • H’m

      He sould join rockstar and make grand redemption solid

      • MichaelPayneV

        Or he could work as a Contractor with Ubisoft, and Reboot Splinter Cell, and make the New Splinter Cell series so good that it will be better than the new Metal Gear Series.

        As Ocelot said “What goes around, comes around!”

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          or a victorian london stealth game and fuck assasins creed syndicate

          • MichaelPayneV

            Or Watch Dogs 2, and put some real Hideo Technology, not the phone BS, make it with Nanomachines, and i’m not kidding!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            yes yes yes !

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            or working with quentin tarantino

            https://youtu.be/z574WRiIlug

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            eh was that fucking a girl and calling her pussy face serious?

          • MichaelPayneV

            As i said, half True!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            which means?

      • Solid metal grand theft redemption gear..

    • MichaelPayneV

      Or maybe Hellboy 3 with Del Toro for a start.

    • Nah he should direct the mgs movie then do other things haha. In kojima we trust

  • MichaelPayneV

    Dear MGI community, i need your help (Yes, again, damn, i already feel ashamed of asking for help this much)

    I’m planing on making the MGS3 sneaking suit, could anyone please link me to a tutorial on what materials do i need to make that suit?

    Thanks!

  • H’m

    Het guys, just found my local eb isnt having a midnight release..
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!.. Anyways as im as impatient as the rest of you are there any orher aussies here… If so have any of you pre-ordered the ps4 digital copy? As im curious to know if the ps4 digital version in australia will have pre-load, abd if the countdown timer is set for sept 1st midnight..? Cheers

    • rhusunlimited

      I’m also an Aussie, pre-ordered PS3 Day One, PS4 Collector’s Edition, and the Limited Edition PS4 Console… nothing digital, but, my EB isn’t doing a midnight release either. I’m just probably going to wait outside until they open, haha.

    • Pawelo

      I preordered mine too on psn in WA and it’s showing that it will start downloading at around 10-11 pm on the 31st. yay

  • Venom_Sina
    • MrVux007

      this is good isnt it ;_)

    • It is good. But I personally have no intentions on mgo or fob until I’ve at least grinded the shit out of tpp. Been waiting to long.
      Then I’ll hit hard and help anyone who needs it in fob

      • Ravenous

        Same here, no MGO untill finished with the story atleast, and just maybe I’ll be giving FOB a whirl sometime late next week if I don’t postpone that too untill finished with the story 🙂

    • Ravenous

      Yeah, there we go, a final clarification on the matter I hope, seeing as this was said by Sean Eyestone in the E3 presentation, and has been tweeted by Ken, so will you guys calm down on the whole ‘pay2play/microtransactions will ruin the entire game’-thing now?

      Like Eyestone said: there is nothing in the game that cannot be accessed or unlocked with the standard ingame GMP. So let’s all hold hands and sing Kumbaja while we wait for our masterpiece XD

    • kuaikukia

      Yes. Glad to hear this

  • MrVux007

    It may not the best MGS for some people…but the game will still have a special place in my heart along with MGS3 …. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNSoMpo6CHI

  • MichaelPayneV

    2 hours and 15 minutes till the Trailer.

    You wanna pass that time faster? No, don’t use the Phantom Cigar, play GZ, then come back!

    • Gatsu

      I need to go shopping, hopefully make it back before starts lol. 😛

      • MichaelPayneV

        You mean before is uploaded? No offense to you, but i’m not really interested when watching something to be like, in the first 301 people who saw it, i don’t care about that.

        Now don’t let my mentality influence yours!

        • Gatsu

          I wanna see it asap >_<. No offense taken dont worry :).

          • MichaelPayneV

            “DEPLOY ASAP”

            I’m working in about…30 min?

            I will be watching it tomorrow, i don’t want to ruin it by watching it on my phone!

          • Andy37649

            Owww i understand you soo much. I got so lucky, since today it’s my only free day in the week. Tomorrow i’m going back to work ’till 1 september, then 2 weeks with MGSV and…. back to school.

    • JJBYACH

      Lol, at first I read that as the trailer is 2 hours 15 mins – I was about to say…

      • Danny Patten

        That would be awesome
        would cut the day easy xD

      • MichaelPayneV

        Well, the 2 hours Trailer is Ground Zeroes!

  • Gatsu

    Good morning brothers.

    “MGS5: The Phantom Pain Has a True Ending, Is Extraordinary But Difficult to Unlock”
    Can’t wait to try get it myself and if it’s true, well no surprise really considering how Peace Walker did it :).

    • JJBYACH

      Any official source that statement is from or is that just your personal opinion?

    • Danny Patten

      Good morning. I read a couple of really big spoilers today. A reviewer entered the NGAF leak thread and has spilled some big ones! We are in for a mind fuck extravaganza! 🙂

      • JJBYACH

        Without going into specifics – a yes or no answer will suffice – , do we see BB become a demon and the man we all know him to be?

        • Danny Patten

          That I can’t answer. There are people saying yes, then there are people calling it bogus (no). And I don’t know what to believe.

          • JJBYACH

            I personally haven’t heard anyone really discuss the matter, making me assume they are not fans of the series – the gamespot article went into detail (as much detail without spoiling anything), but apart from them, no one really commented on it, seems strange, guess I’ll see in 6 days.

        • MrVux007

          my Japanese friend told me that each player will have to make his own judgement…in short it will depend on your own perspective

          • JJBYACH

            Perfect, just what I wanted to hear…

    • Andy37649

      There’s only one way the game might end…

      • Gatsu

        Hmmm I have my own epic ending in mind xD.

        I kinda like different endings :). Witcher 3 have about 20 different ones or something, lol. That maybe too much though.

        • Andy37649

          if Hideo really wants to close Big bosses saga, well, Outer heaven would be the best way to make fans happy :P.

          • Gatsu

            Actually 2 of old interviews with Kojima comes to my mind right now. It was a bit confusing considering he gave different answers, but with secret endings in mind it makes sense.

            1. Kojima’s interview: “Players will make the story connection in the ending.” (don’t remember the exact words)

            2. Kojima’s interview: “The game starts in 1984. The end of the game everyone knows – it’s Big Boss creating Outer Heaven.”

            :O…so perhaps he means the true ending might be it…and with the first one, players will definitely understand the story closure but not so well, as with Outer Heaven ending.

          • MrVux007

            he did state,that the game might have multiple endings depending on choices you make(and relationships you have in the game)

          • Gatsu

            Will be exciting to hear how the story goes with everyone here :).

        • MichaelPayneV

          So Hideo has pulled an Arkham Knight? Nice!

          • Gatsu

            Not sure is the info 100% correct, but even brother Joaquin has been saying stuff about true/secret ending for a while and think he’s correct. It makes sense as TPP is like Peace Walker 2.

  • Gatsu

    5 days left oh my GOD! Thanks to that Steam’s timezone difference release, I’ll be getting TPP on 31st. HYPE!

    • MichaelPayneV

      5? Holly S*t!

      • Gatsu

        YEAH @___@ !

        • MichaelPayneV

          In my country will be available physiucal on September 1st, but i won’t want till then, i will do another GZ!

          I know is not right, but also considering that Konami might have rushed the PC port this time, i would like to test TPP first, so i have good reasons!

          • Gatsu

            It’s understandable, there might be a few bugs with PC release for different people. We’ll see soon.
            I just hope Steam don’t crash or something similar, when I’m supposed to download it at the same time with billion other players.

          • MichaelPayneV

            That would be a good thing, it would mean that A LOT of people brought it on Steam, in that momment, the community that Hideo envisioned will be whole again!

          • MrVux007

            “the community that Hideo envisioned will be whole again!”
            http://media1.giphy.com/media/6OWIl75ibpuFO/giphy.gif

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, that was a fukk up, the right version would be!

            “I have found the way, Platforms, Controllers, even our Gamertags will be irrelevant, the Fan-Base that Hideo envizioned will become a reality, and will make the Gaming Community whole again!”

          • MrVux007

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            There are no PC performance reviews up yet. That is making me very worried. I know GZ ran great, but there are usually performance reviews up by now. There is a German PC site(can’t remember it’s name) that’s usually always first to reviews.

          • MrVux007

            people usually review the game on consoles first,then PC last…just hang tight

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I’m talking about PC hardware performance reviews. There are usually up by now. I am amazed that Nvidia don’t have theirs up yet. The lack of a Steam preload is worrying me.

          • MrVux007

            preload could mean nothing at all…
            i dont really recall many HW performance reviews “a week” before the actual release

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            They usually are up early. At least a week before. No preload means there could be a delay for these sites in receiving the final PC build. TPP is a massive release. Not having a preload makes the PC community very nervous.

          • MrVux007

            the only thing they should be worried about is their internet download speed lol…
            again just hang tight,if anything GZ showed that it will be a well optimized game

    • JJBYACH

      Alot of shit has happened in my life these past few weeks which have screwed alot of stuff up, I previously was unsure if I would be even able to play TPP on its release week, but now it seems I’ll be able to play the game on release day (only for a few hours at night and early in the morning), but nevertheless – HYPE!

      • Gatsu

        Sad to hear that brother :(…!

        Actually a bit similar thing happened with my friend, stuff at work changed for him so he can’t play it so much after all. Mostly during the evenings.

  • Danny Patten

    There is a stream on twitch currently showing TPP! SPOILER ALERT DEFCON RED

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      thank you im watching it!

      • Gatsu

        Why :P? Wasn’t the 4chan spoilers enough for you ?

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          euh it was fake !

          • Gatsu

            The stream? Good !

          • Danny Patten

            No the stream is the real deal^^

          • Gatsu

            Crap :P. I wish they wouldnt stream it…

          • Danny Patten

            I f you’re brave you can ship in. Hospital scene is about to start. But I won’t say no more.

          • Gatsu

            Hell no bro…5 days left. I honestly cant understand why someone would watch it after years of waiting, when we almost get to play it ourselves.

          • Danny Patten

            Nah man, I have a pretty good talent. I can watch that and still feel like I’ve seen it for the first time when actually playing it. It was the same with The Witcher.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            same for assasins creed 3 and watchdogs lol

          • Gatsu

            Their story is forgettable…unlike TPP. Of course ppl forget them easily.

          • Gatsu

            Just hoping some random spoiler-douchebags dont come here after watching the stream…
            Maybe it gets deleted.

          • Danny Patten

            Hey you’re amod. Can’t you? I won’t spoil anything here. This here is still the best community afterall

          • Gatsu

            I mean hopefully the stream gets deleted.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            if thish appens i will keep everyone warned and flag all commets!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            can private message be sent in disqus 😛

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            no the 4chan guide spoilers!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            why don tyou fucing reply instead of taking all this fuking time

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    WHY DID YOU HAVE TO CUT ME OFF !

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      STOP! posting spoiler links. There are many other sites where you can do that. There should be a site ban for any future spoilers or links. Expulsion from Diamond Dogs. Remember what happened to Gray Bull?

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        im watching it and pure midfuck!

  • JJBYACH

    30 mins till new Kojima trailer.

    • NakedSnake85

      no it wasnt

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Yes!

    • Tong Ninja

      It’s Kojima misleading us again with his trailers! haha

  • Tomas Prilepok

    absolutely fantastic

  • Snake

    NEW TRAILER HIDEO KOJIMA

  • Tong Ninja

    That trailer!!! 😀
    So crazy and again asks more questions about what is going on in TPP! haha

    6 MORE DAYS!!

  • MrVux007
    • NakedSnake85

      actually i flipped seconds later :/

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Wat about zone of the Enders sahelanthropus or Eli in mother base!

      • Tong Ninja

        The new Metal Gear looks awesome! haha
        Young Mantis was floating above the ST-84 as well!

        Well we should already assume Eli eventually comes to Mother Base! haha

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          I suppose mantis could be here in that shot

    • I’m sure it was a reference to his body during mgs4

    • GUN®

      Getting burned by Solid in MG1

      • Venom_Sina

        Solid burned him in MG2.

        • GUN®

          My bad, then getting burned by Solid in MG2

          And then his final form must have been what he looked like while he was in a coma before MGS4

      • MrVux007

        he was actually burned in MG2 🙂

        • GUN®

          Ok, one person is enough

  • vic boss

    Wtf , just WTF happened in the new trailer?? Now I even have more questions than before.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      Skull face WTF!!!!!

  • Mauricio Acosta

    Anyone else get watery eyes when they saw the Otacon Scene where he was crying? Man the memories. This trailer literly tugged at my heart strings.

    The last 2 minutes though…. Hupfffffffff HOT DARN!!!!!! I don’t even!! My everything is ready!!!! This is a game for us fans!!!!

    • Danny Patten

      Yeah, I chocked….the feels man…so many

  • The new trailer is so good haha

  • JJBYACH

    Big Boss -> Skull face – what? My meter has officially broken, the Mercury has poured out and now I am about to die of awesomeness…

    • Mauricio Acosta

      Don’t you die on me dang it!

  • Scruff

    Dear Lord… That launch trailer!

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    I flipped when i saw thumbnail of Eli in mother base and when big boss becomes skull face and when Rex turns into sahelanthropus and Eli at mother base at the end

  • korruption

    Where’s the new trailer?

    • NakedSnake85

      psssst scroll down 😉

      • korruption

        Gotcha… *climbs back in his dumbass box*

  • SNKtheStampede

    why the zombie camouflage tough? I guess it’s a ominous metaphor for what would happen in the future, but I’ve never been fond of it.

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    My bet was right big boss was looking at sahelanthropus

  • GUN®

    That’s not Big Boss becoming Skull Face guys, it shows Big Boss’s life.

    It starts with him being young from MGS3
    Then PeaceWalker
    The TPP
    THEN he gets burned by Solid Snake in MG1
    And finally what he would have looked like in MG2?

    • NakedSnake85

      Big Boss got burned in Mg2

      • GUN®

        Right, I messed up. But it still shows him in that form.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      That is the same Skullface model though.

      • GUN®

        Face looks different to me.

        • Mauricio Acosta

          Looks the same. We have never seen Skullface stare at the camera like that this close.

    • MrVux007

      i think the burning part has nothing to do with him being burned in MG2…
      its just a transition from him being bad-ass into a …well bigger bas-ass 😀

    • GUN®

      EDIT:

      Starts with him in MGS3 form
      Then TPP/MG1
      Then he gets burned by Solid in MG2
      Then the final Skull Face-type form must be what he looked like before being rebuilt by Eva and Ocelot.

      Robo-cock – coming to theatres near you.

  • He has both of his eyes and no horn…..
    And looks nothing like skullface

    • JJBYACH

      I’m pretty sure It’s the exact same model, look at the top left side of burned BB’s head where the shrapnel was and then look at the same spot on Skull face.
