Konami details Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Companion App

Konami has released more details on the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Companion App that will be made available on the game’s launch day, September 1st. The Companion App will work with the Xbox One, PS4 and PS3 versions of the game. Check out the full press release below.

Fans of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes may well have taken advantage of the incredibly useful “MGSVGZ Companion App”, which allowed players to access Snake’s iDroid directly from their mobile device whilst playing the game. If you enjoyed this functionality, you’ll be pleased to know that a companion app will also be downloadable for MGSVTPP! Find more info on what to expect from the App below.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have a companion app similar to the successful app for Ground Zeroes.
  • Like in Ground Zeroes the app can connect with the main game to show the in-game map as you play. Acting as a second screen map in the palm of your hand.
  • Using the app to navigate allows the player to see the map at all times and see more of the map on the screen than in game.
  • The app also allows you to listen to all records / music that you obtain as you progress through the game.
  • The companion app is only available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox One and will be available for download on September 1st, 2015, in time for the game’s launch.

Metal-Gear-Solid-V-The-Phantom-Pain-Companion-App

If you want to be the best at tactical espionage, this app could prove invaluable in aiding your operations!

As you can see, the companion app won’t be available for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game.

    Not PC Version? T___T
    Damn it

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    Weird that 360 and PC are excluded. Of course I don’t know if my iPod Touch 4 would handle the app anyway.

    • N-Shifter

      Pretty sure the iPod will run it 🙂

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        I wouldn’t be surprised if it required iOS 7 or above, though.

    • WhatTheJuicay

      I’m telling you now, the iPod touch 4 will not handle it. Lol. I still use my touch4 but I don’t download anything on it. Stupid apple abandoned it at ios6.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Exactly. Like I said in another comment, it won’t support iOS 6, I can assume this easily.

  • N-Shifter

    Can’t wait to use this, I’ll have my tablet running mother base beside me and I’ll have my map running on my phone attached to my DS4 – immersion, I’ll have it 🙂

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    I <3 the author

  • VenomSnake123

    Didn’t get the GZ app but this sounds really cool! Definitely gonna download this.

    • N-Shifter

      It was really good on GZ as well, I used it quite a lot there too.

      • VenomSnake123

        Good to hear that it’s not a broken app or something. That would suck.

  • Nice, but it should be all platforms. Poor 360 and PC

  • gerber

    It will be useful for managing motherbase and listening to tapes while taking a shit once in a while

    • N-Shifter

      Having the map running live right beside you is very useful.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        Yea true but at the same time when your tablet or phone runs out of battery, you feel crippled because you invested more time enjoying the always on map and not learning to use the in game map. At least that’s how I feel. I hate the in game map.

        • chiffmonkey

          Just plug your phone in near you and sit it on your lap. Problem solved.

  • Chico Ribeiro

    No PC support! Why?!?!?!

    • RecasasX

      Konami thinks the PC crowd ain’t big enough to bother. I was really looking forward to managing my PC mother base :'(.

      • God dam it Konami…

        • GUN®

          That is not the real reason.

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          I have a feeling sales shot up after the trailer. Except for when it was #1 on the first day of preorders, it’s just hovered in the middle.

          • Meh, TPP was still going for #1 before the trailer

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            What I’m saying is that it was not #1 in sales at the moment and received a spike in the last day or so, possibly because of the trailer’s release.

        • MrVux007

          to bad we probably wont have any official numbers…

    • Ricardo Oe

      Because we are nerds…

    • MrVux007

      You have to take a couple of factors into consideration:

      1)The first and the most important one is(from publishers point of view,especially if you are rly tight on the budget): “Where do we earn the most money”,and in MGSV case its probably on current gen consoles,so they prioritized it for those consoles and then later on for others(as much as the budget allows it)

      2)”Time is money”,you have to also take into consideration that the PC version development was not started from the beginning as the console versions did,and they had a deadline to fill (in this case September 1st)

      3)The reasons might be technical….to pair up your smart-phone/android with a platform or in this case a PC,it will take a lot of software development for certain HW(which in PC case is rly hard taking into consideration a variaty of HW),and then you have to prepare the app-support for that platform…

      all in which is rly time consuming and takes a hit into the budget,and its a rly hard to develop…

      But then again i dont see this as deal breaker for PC or Xbox360 folk,they wont be missing much (IMO)

  • Does it sync to the online version or just the campaign?

  • SnakeyBR

    Correct me if I’m wrong but it doesn’t look like you can manage Motherbase in the app. Just view the maps and listen to tapes.

    • Ryan Locke

      Right :/ It would make it a lot more useful if i could at least use it to send my troops on missions. Then i could earn gmp when i cant play the game

  • grapes9h5

    Must have if I can listen to my cassette tapes as I use the real world potty.

  • Anon

    Another 10/10 review from Gameblog.fr has put the metacritic score back up to 9.5!

    • muaddib

      Yes!

    • JJBYACH

      As expected.

      Now we wait…

      • This is exactly representing me

      • James Raskalov

        This genuinely made my burst out laughing. Thank you.

      • No Place For Hayter

        “How is is still not september” LOL, funniest thing I have seen all week, lol.

    • umbralex

      Washington post ruined the metascore with an 80/100 🙁

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        and ruined people’s days with the spoilers or so I hear

  • kristoforoG

    If we can listen to the tapes in the app is enough for me….

  • Could we have a last theory sesh the day before release and bet on who gets the closest theory..

    • vic boss

      No, that would give the people who want to share spoilers the perfect opportunity to spoiler all of us

  • Ricardo Oe

    I need first buy a smartphone or tablet to use this…

    • WhatTheJuicay

      Go with a tablet. Even a 7 or 8 inch tablet would be better.

  • Justin Wentz

    I’m soooo glad I’ll be able to listen to tapes through the app. It’ll be so convenient to do that while I’m not in front of the game.

    • I think you have to be connected to the game to do that… D:

      • Justin Wentz

        oh man. Would be awesome to be able to download tapes to your phone.

        • gerber

          That’s how it worked in GZ. Very convenient, I used to listen to these tapes in bed 🙂

      • muaddib

        No, you just need an Wifi connection… if you first connect with the game, of course.

        • Justin Wentz

          ok cool.

        • Oh, then it’s nice, yea..

  • i hope we can see were quiet is in the map so we can tell her were to go

    • ddmaster

      Well on the map in game any of the buddies do appear as a green dog icon so I ‘d be very surprised if she didn’t.

  • muaddib

    I used the GZ’s app. It’s pretty good. Didn’t bothered with the MB minigame, however. Another thing i didn’t like is selecting something when your finger don’t cooperate with the screen. Sometimes it’s just better stick with the in-game iDroid.
    And why not Xbox360? PC i can understand, but it will be released for Xone, from Microsoft and PS3, from old-gen, why not X360?

    • Nick Wheaton

      My guess is that the app needs a wifi connection to the console to connect with the game, and most 360 models do not have wireless capabilities unless you buy a $50 something wireless adapter for it, whereas the PS3, 4 and XBone have wireless capabilities right out of the box.

    • GUN®

      Not enough 360 sales of GZ to justify it?

  • Gatsu

    This is pretty good news and can listen to tapes/music with it :).

    Will use it with my Samsung tablet :).

    • glitchbomb

      Yeah!
      I’m excited. Wish we could manage our f.o.b or motherbase as on it.

  • Steven Michael Brown

    It would be cool if we could manage our actual mother base with the app

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Although I highly doubt it

  • John Dixon

    I feel like the only one playing it on 360

    • glitchbomb

      I feel for you!

  • JJBYACH

    I wonder if we will be able to offline the cassette tapes and listen to them like as I exercise or something.

    • ddmaster

      Lol I’m picturing a funny scenario where a guy(player) is listening while running on one of the gym’s treadmills when a torture scene starts playing and a woman screams violently. All of a sudden the headset slips out of the headphone port and like half a dozen other people hear the screams and call the cops. Player’s like (<__>) (<_<) then takes off out the nearest emergency exit.

  • Lackooo

    I bet no WP support either…

    • chiffmonkey

      That’s why I kept my old android. 😛

      • Lackooo

        The truth is I never had any android device in my life yet… 😀

  • JJBYACH

    So I was reading the excellent Gameblog.fr review of TPP (it was translated from French but nevertheless it was still coherent and legible and is probably the best review for TPP I’ve read so far), and they made a lot of interesting points, but I feel some of the finer details was lost in translation, would someone who speaks French be able to translate this? – it seems to hint that the game features a peace walker secret ending that ties up every lose end and brought out feelings of pure sentiment.

    “Et puis il y a la fin, la définitive. Celle qui permet de boucler la boucle et de vous faire repenser à 30 ans de vie commune avec Snake et ses clones. Pour les fans, accrochez-vous, ne vous arrêtez pas après 30 heures de jeu. MGS V se mérite et c’est à ce moment qu’il rentre définitivement dans l’Histoire du jeu vidéo.”

    • VicBoss

      I don’t think it’s a really big deal, but if you don’t want to have some “details” about how the ending of TPP work, don’t read my translation :

      “And then, there is the real ending, the real one. Which one that allows to end everything (or close, loop the loop) and rethink about 30 years of common life with Snake and his clones. For fans, keep going, don’t stop after 30 hours of playing and the first ending. MGS V needs investment and it is at that moment that the game definitely fit into video game history.”

      Sorry if my english is not perfect ^^.

    • Dr Strangelove

      “And then, there’s the end, the final one. (“definitive one”)The one who ties up every loose end and lets you embrace those 30 years of common life with Snake and his clones. For the fans, keep up, do not stop after 30 ours of play time. MGS V is to be earned and it’s only after that, that it will forever enter the History of video games.”
      Sorry, English is not my mother tongue and I can’t translate sh*t. Anyway, the reviewer seems to refer to a second ending, a la Peace Walker. Apparently the reason TPP will mark History IS the “real” ending. Something that will make you see the franchise from a different perspective, probably.

      • glitchbomb

        Thanks strangelove!

      • JJBYACH

        Thank you so much….

  • Denuq

    i hope this app works, because the ps4 GZ one was broken for me

    • Daburcor

      How so? Was there some sort of connection problem or something? I only ask because I have been using it all week just fine.

      • N-Shifter

        Likewise, in fact I’ve been using it linked to my PS4 since Ground Zeroes released and it’s always worked no problem.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          same, love it

    • Denuq

      would not connect to the server for some reason, it just hanged on the web popup page, but they have put out patch today v1.03 and it has fixed it now, dont know why could not work on 1.02

  • vic boss

    Has anyone received emails from amazon or gamestop, from the shipping of the CE? I have already received the email from amazon for the collectors guide but I haven’t received anything from gamestop for the CE. Im a little anxious about it.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Nope nothing, They better ship the fricking thing BEFORE the weekend, or HALF of my vacation will be waiting for the game, and then no number of curses will express my anger, lol.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        Ha you should have taken your vacation Labor Day week. Well that’s what I did with gtav. I took it a week after launch to ensure that I get to play it my full vacation.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I picked one day shipping so hopefully gamestop ships on saturday and it gets here on monday

  • Not for PC, beautiful again. -_-
    Thanks, Konami.

  • insanetrasher

    Who in this world would want to use a +/- 5” screen to check a map when you can have one in 40”+ by the press of a button…

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Me.

    • cklambo

      I guess some people like the immersion.

    • N-Shifter

      It’s not like you only use the small map, but for instance, I’ll have my phone attached to the controller with purpose made clamp and it gives you constant real time awareness of things you’ve marked like enemies etc. I’ll still use either the main map or the tablet map to call in the chopper, mark waypoints etc.

      It’s just an added bit of immersion and it’s tactically useful 🙂

    • No Place For Hayter

      I find the in game map to be too hard to accurately use for stealthing. That being said I’m not going to be using the app either, for me it ruins the immersion and is kind of ridiculous to have an “companion app”.

      • glitchbomb

        Hey, are you playing TPP on P.C?

        • No Place For Hayter

          Eventually, I currently don’t have a PC good enough to run TPP max settings, but in a year or two I will be buying one, I know I will be a little late (lol little) to the PC party, but I will get there, after all who would 100% TPP only once? lol.

          • Gatsu

            When you get it, join our group ;).

          • No Place For Hayter

            Definitely 🙂

    • Steven Michael Brown

      It makes it so you can check map while still running or crawling etc

      • insanetrasher

        Well, I can give you this but, honestly a 5” map just so you can watch it while running.. At least I gotta admit that its cool they made it accessible though. I saw there was some sort of Mother Base “mini-game” in the GZ app, it could be nice to make it so you could manage MB in TPP with the app, now THAT would be useful.

        • Steven Michael Brown

          Yeah that would be killer

  • Steven Michael Brown

    Me

  • I am saddened by the fact that there will be no support for the PC version. I’ve decided to contact KONAMI’s support. I don’t really hope it will change anything even if enough of us complain but it can’t hurt. One thing for sure is they can’t know how much the community hates something if we don’t voice our opinion.

    Here is the mail I’ve sent if you want to use it as a template. I might be slightly too polite for some people’s tastes but I firmly believe that respecting your recipient is the first step in a good and healthy communication:

    “I want to express my deep dissatisfaction with the recently announced lack of support for PC for the MGSV:TPP companion app. While it is not enough to warrant any kind of boycott of the game for me, it paints the company in a bad light and will surely negatively affect my future purchases of KONAMI games.

    Not supporting those platforms is not the real problem though. The real problem is that knowing that the game will be released on five platforms the company announces support for three and gives absolutely no explanation why the other two are omitted. This shows a disrespect for the players and customers and publicly announcing *why* the support is not given and *when*, if ever, it will be added would be something that would show the customers that they are not wallets to be drained of money, but real people who have expectations and can get emotional about games.”

    • Chris Estevez

      Damn, when you said you were too polite, dude like…

      I think I’m the one that is TOO polite, you are very direct. I think your complaint is perfect.

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      The reasons are technical, you cant pair your ipad with your xbox 360 at all and the process for PC is very tricky, and then they have to implement it into the game, and because theres so much variety in computer software its just too time consuming. It also isnt included with the game, its a separate free purchase entirely, so they arent robbing you of support.

      • chiffmonkey

        PC should be the easiest platform as that’s what they developed The Phantom Pain directly on isn’t it.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          I could be wrong but im pretty sure it was developed for consoles and then ported.

          • chiffmonkey

            Nah Kojima stated in multiple interviews that it was developed on PC and that the game would therefore come to PC at some point.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Every game engine on the face of the earth develops games ON a PC, but not all of them develop FOR the PC, it does not matter what it was developed ON only what it was developed FOR, that being said the PC version is probably the most direct port of the game.

          But all in all this doesn’t really have anything to do with the app in anyway, the technical difficulties getting a mobile app to work with a PC game has nothing to do with whether the PC version is a good or bad port, for the Xbox One and the PS4 there are already systems in place to allow such a thing, but the PC they would have to create their own, and they are not doing that, hence no app for the PC version.

          • From what I recall, and to quote wiki, “The Fox Engine is a proprietary cross-platform, cross-generational game engine” so the PC version is not really a port. It’s just a build of the same project targeting PC, the same you can build the same project to multiple platforms in Unity or Unreal Engine.

            That being said, as I mentioned in another post, it might be simply that they are using some feature which is present only in PS3, PS4 and Xbox One to add the mobile-integration and they couldn’t be bothered to write another interface to make it work for PC.

            I hope that one day they will be bothered enough to actually add that support :).

      • According to the play store and app store the GZ app works with 360 [1][2] so I don’t buy it being impossible. The same for PC – you can create an HTTP server on iOS and Android, so it’s pretty likely you can setup a socket server which can be accessed through the local network which should be more than enough to ensure connectivity between the two. I am more inclined to believe that they are using some magic voodoo provided for those three platforms and they just can’t be bothered, for various acceptable but unexplained reasons, to provide a separate implementation just for PC.

        But heck, even if it’s the technical reasons, they could’ve at least wrote “xbox 360 and PC versions are not supported due to technical limitations on which we will elaborate soon” or something like that.

        I am not really mad or anything, I am a little disappointed because I was not able to use the GZ app and really wanted to give the TPP one a try, especially that my fiancee will be watching me play so she could get engaged more. Primarily I want them to be more open with their customers (of which I am one) and that is the point of sending them that email.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          You have to use smart glasses with the Xbox 360 version. Idk what that even is. And they would have to make sure all drivers are compatible

  • As a side note, how did the head-transplant-doctor-suing-konami end? Was there any closure for this matter or is it still going behind the scenes? The last information I can find is from April or so.

    • Gatsu

      I haven’t heard anything of it either for months. Maybe it didn’t go so well for the doc.

      • Raven_Sorrow

        That one was just stupid! Marketing move or not XD

        • No Place For Hayter

          You honestly couldn’t make stuff like that up, lol, that was awesome.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Or, y’know, *cough* PR stunt *cough*

  • vic boss

    Long live Hideo Kojima

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      It’s more like 40 million sales, last I read. Proves the point even more.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah I think it was 40-50.

        • No Place For Hayter

          That reminds me I need to find out what the number is one month after TPP release.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            100… BILLION copies! *jams finger in mouth*

          • Schmojima

            you mean….^^

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            yes indeed

    • No Place For Hayter

      I love its point, but the picture itself is all wrong, lol.

      • vic boss

        I didn’t make the picture I just shared it with you guys, I know for a fact that there’s more than 40 millions sales by know

        • No Place For Hayter

          Of course, I was nitpicking because it came from else where, lol, if you made it I would be more constructive about it, lol.

    • Solid PhoeniX

      Inaccurate, Im sure its way more than 25 Million. Love the thought of this though. Can you believe we will be roaming Afghanistan and Africa as Big Boss in less than 6 Days?

  • Mauricio Acosta

    Brothers please be careful. JunkerHQ has announced that the ending for The Phantom Pain is circulating the web. Apparently someone has already 100%. Avoid 4chan at all costs since there seem to be cutscene images of important parts.

    • Gatsu

      Already 100%? How long have they been playing the game lol.

      • Mauricio Acosta

        That’s what I said. I don’t know how true those reports are but hey I guess anything to scare people into not being spoiled

      • Ishmael

        there is always a freak out there…

      • Tong Ninja

        He or she must be pretty good! haha 😀

      • FZJanimated

        well if they didnt sleep and played non-stop then yea probably they beat the game in 24-72hrs? lol , shit , it make it worst i have to wait 1-2 extra weeks for the game to release here ,damn

      • Meiyer89

        RRRRRRRRRRRRED BULLLLLLLLL!!!

    • ddmaster

      Thanks for the heads up.

    • Schmojima

      Thank you for the advice!! I will avoid every gaming site or google for that matter regarding MGS besides MGI of course.

  • No Place For Hayter

    I wish people adhered to the release date, we now live in a time where you can stay in line for a couple of days to buy a game DAY ONE and it won’t matter because there are already a ton of people whom have been playing the game for a week.

    I don’t care when or how I play a game I like or will like, but TPP was a different story especially how Kojima does his games and his stories, I wanted to take part in the crowd that played TPP and was discovering it, but it has reached the point now where people like me whom wait for an actually release date are the last ones to play and enjoy the game, now I’m honestly depressed, it really sucks not being able to be part of a “day one” crowd when such a thing no longer exists, you have to live in a none “mainstream” country and you will get the game a week early. It won’t matter what I do in TPP I won’t be exploring it with others, they will already be finished most of it and gone, I really wanted to play TPP with the world, but instead now it will be like every other game I play, where some people have played it other haven’t, it is no different then If I picked up the game a month after release, I wanted to be able to enjoy the mind fricking plot same time as everyone else, not to play it after the whole internet has read about it last week. I don’t know what I should blame, this overly social and interconnected society, or the complete assholes out there with no sense of understanding and break street date.

    • Gatsu

      Maaan… I totally agree with ya -_-. I feel kinda depressed and angry because of this also… This part really sucks about game industry right now, why the fuck can’t retailers sell the games like in the past? Why do they have to be such assholes, really.

      It would be nice if everyone would get to play it around the same time, but now hearing someone already 100% it? What the hell :/. Then do they REALLY have to stream it? Spoil it around the net? Apologizes for my angry comment which I rarely do, but this seriously pisses me off because TPP is really special game. It must be nice to live in these countries where shops don’t give a damn and sell games month early from release, and the rest of fans have to avoid 99% of internet to not being spoiled of Kojima’s last story.

      Motherf*ckers…. If I’d know who does this, I would pull the trigger, lol.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah agreed, you don’t have to apologize for an angry comment, lol, it’s cool.

        I know a decent amount of us will play it at the same time, but we are from a LARGE variety of places so it would be very hard to tell, lol.

        • Gatsu

          I don’t know when all this early leaking started, but I just wish it would get fixed.
          It hurts much you know, when hearing that some maggot have been playing TPP for weeks while we still suffer waiting…. ;(

          Disappointing that with every game these days, we get news of broken release dates and it isn’t nice with story related games. It’s like they don’t matter anymore at all. It’s been sometimes hard to stay on the hype train, because it almost getting derailed thanks to these bastards.

            It also creates the effect of people not being able to keep secrets, in today’s industry you could not pull off a MGS2 story secret, and if you did you would get sued for misleading people *sigh*, oh well, despite all this garbage I will still be playing the game next week 🙂 (if it ships in time, but that is something I’m not going to think about, lol)

          • Gatsu

            Yeah… but don’t worry sensei, ’cause I believe that about 90% of the fans will start playing it next week :). So we ain’t alone ;D.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, any “mainstream” country will abide by the release date, but there will still be a few places which have no idea what TPP is and release it early without knowing, lol. Gotta keep my nose clean so I can experience TPP without much knowledge about the actual story.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            If i was a big corporate game company and had a release like TPP (wishful thinking much) i would set a date then break it myself giving the green light to the release 10 days sooner. Just to mess with the black-market XD Ok and treating the fans 😉

          • No Place For Hayter

            That is what I was thinking, it truly the only way to avoid people breaking the street date, it would suck for those who have planned a schedule around the first supposed release date, but getting it earlier is better than later, lol.

          • glitchbomb

            Exactly! 😀

          • glitchbomb

            You guys, the percentage of people who get it that early is not that big. We will all be able to play it together! 🙂
            Unless of course you live in a diff country…not that has anything to do with broken release dates. At least it’s not like waaaaay back in the day when new games showed up on store shelves almost randomly.

          • Gatsu

            I know…but it still makes me so mad …
            And I could just relax if wouldn’t happen, but now with all the leaks around I can’t…

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, I know it is a small amount, but what bothers me the most is that small amount gets the story spoiled for everyone across the whole internet for a short amount of time, there for lots of people already know most of the story 🙁

            That being said, yeah you are right it is only a small amount but it makes a huge impact.

          • JJBYACH

            I to God it’s true that the ending of the game was removed for not just the boot camp but all pre release versions and will be accessible via day one patch… As selfish and entitled as it seems and much as I hate day one patches, I hope this game has one so everyone has an equal (somewhat) equal.

      • Mini gear

        I agree, people should only get to play the game when it’s released. The world we live in gives small groups tons of chances to play early before most fans can, I don’t like what the gaming world has come to, this may be one of the last diamonds of gaming coming from kojimas mind. Although slightly tainted by konami greed.

    • James Raskalov

      We should all explore TPP together.
      As the MGI community.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Guess I can’t hope for perfect containment, lol, I guess it helps when most of us here are still getting it at release, lol. 🙂

        • James Raskalov

          If possible, I think MGI members should create MGO groups across the various platforms.

          Or be dicks to eachother and invade eachother’s bases just because.
          Either works for me.

          …That last part was a joke.

          • Michalien

            we actually have a steam group
            and i guess there are console clans or something along those lines too
            if you play on pc give me your steam name and i invite you 😀

          • James Raskalov

            Sorry, my pathetic PC can’t run a game of this scale. I play on PS4.

    • insanetrasher

      Don’t get mad bro, you’ll enjoy it at the same time as the majority anyways..

    • FMercenary

      What makes me mad is not so much that I’m not playing it right now but the lack of commitment of all those people involved in situations such as this. Loyalty to the end!

    • Sockerfri

      I pre-ordered the digital version of the game from PSN. Im right there with you on DayOne! 🙂

  • It’s unfortunate that Xbox 360 and PC users won’t have access to it, but at least there’s no exclusive rewards or content tied to it.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, it just some “companion app” which I won’t be using anyway, I feel it would hurt my experience, also I do not support such an idea anyway and would NEVER use anything like it.

      Welcome! ( ‘ ‘ )7 happy to have you with us in the comments 🙂

      • Thanks for the welcome, No Place For Hayter. 🙂

        • Gatsu

          Aye welcome brother ;)…

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Well, this article doesn’t say what i wanted to hear… Is it for Android and iOS only or i can finally install this on my windows phone? -.-

  • Gatsu

    “Sins of the Father” by Donna Burke is the main theme of MGSV TPP. (Cont)
    “Quiet’s Theme” by Stefanie Joosten is love theme by Quiet who doesn’t have word. Enjoy her pure voice.

    • But why the boner gun

      • Well-Dressed Snake

        Nonono, the question is ‘why NOT a boner gun?’!

        • Tille

          Why boner gun? Kind of obvious isn’t it? He said in Interviews he liked Dusk till Dawn because it has horror, fun an action:

  • Gatsu

    Del Toro said he got ideas for the Jaeger’s from mecha animes, but parts of it look similar to ST-84 :D. Okey well, maybe the Pacific Rim blade isn’t exactly same looking :P… I bet Kojima gave him idea to use the name Jaeger Program, man and machine become one ;).

    • No Place For Hayter

      Despite how insane the new Metal Gear is I hope it isn’t an illusion created by Mantis 🙁

      That being said how cool would it be to fight that Metal Gear, but to actually defeat it you have to shoot Psycho Mantis floating around and not the Metal Gear itself?

      • Gatsu

        I’m sure it’s not an illusion.
        Fighting it in open world area will be very cool :D.

        • No Place For Hayter

          “very cool” he says, we both know it’s way past cool 😉

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        Hell michael could be 100% right . What if this game was actually helped by guillermo del toro. Horro Story line – Hugh fight with mechas like pacific rim and characters that looks like fantasy … just wow

      • FZJanimated

        i dont think is an illusion , we actually saw Eli in the metal gear , so im pretty sure is eli using the metal gear here.

    • DDADDB

      :O Maybe the two Eli twins are needed to control the new Metal Gear!

      • Gatsu

        :O that is actually pretty interesting, what if it go like that :D…

  • NameUndecided

    I just read that YouTube Gaming launches tomorrow — basically kind of Google’s version of Twitch.

    I say this as a warning because it’s probably yet another website to avoid for the time being. 😉

  • clintonmeade40

    Can someone link to me to an address where I can download this trailer? I want to put it on my ps4

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    This shit is too funny XD

    • glitchbomb

      ….I saw this earlier when you posted it…and now seeing it for the 10th time..if the shop was a little bit cleaned up..i would happily hang that shit in my house.

  • MichaelPayneV

    At first i thought that The Phantom Pain was influenced by Del Toro, now i know that TPP exists because of Del Toror meeting Kojima!

    • glitchbomb

      As much as i love Del Toro, i am pretty sure the core basis of TPP existed outside of Del Toro influence..

      • MichaelPayneV

        Pretty sure TPP begain Pre-Production afetr Hideo met Del Toro, pretty sure TPP is ametaphor for Hideo leaving the Franchise, Reviews called TPP “A New Begining”

        • glitchbomb

          O.k

  • MichaelPayneV

    Looks like i was right, the Metal Gear Boss fight is in the Open World, and it will be a long “hours” fight, with stages like running from it in a Car, or D-Walker or D-Horse!

  • zombiesoundwave

    Anyone notice gz app updated today too. Wemt all through the app and couldn’t find anything new. Anyone else see anything?

  • zombiesoundwave

    Anyone notice gz app updated today too. Went all through the app and couldn’t find anything new. Anyone else see anything?

    • NameUndecided

      The update notes in the iOS App Store (the capitalization there was autocorrected in. Surprised it didn’t add a TM sign as well…) say that the update was just for bug fixes. So they probably wouldn’t hide anything else in there without advertising it.

      • zombiesoundwave

        Okay cool. We are close to release. I just was wondering if they were doing any kind of changes to the app for TPP.

  • glitchbomb

    Maybe one of you can answer this question…
    I only had a ps3 when it purchased and finished GZ. Since then I have gotten a ps4 and GZ, and I wanted to play it a few days before the 31st but I’m unsure which GZ data will get transferred to TPP. If I had a choice I would choose the ps3 because I’ve spend more time unlocking everything.
    Do you think you get to chose which GZ data gets transferred?

    • zombiesoundwave

      Think you should be able too. Chart acts like ps3 can be put in rather than ps4.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Oh, I’m just going to leave this here 😉

    • Steven Michael Brown

      Lol

    • Gatsu

      XD

    • to funny bro

    • ddmaster

      Oh Kojima-san, you sick bastard.

  • gerber

    Does any of you remember when in interview in 2013 Kojima talking about companion app, he mentioned that you will be able to create your own missions? What happened to that, will we get that feature? That would be awesome and would increase replayability even more. I remember mission creator in Tenchu 2 and I loved it

  • Y Jebai

    I might use the app if I can manage my Mother Base or my FOB using it. It didn’t work too well with Ground Zeroes for me, so I’m not incredibly keen on using it as a map for the game.

  • This Pirate Crackdowns A Go…

    I really hope they add extra functionality to the app and let us manage mother base whilst on the go.

  • Solid PhoeniX

    Brothers! . . Check out this Article on IGN as to Why MGS V TPP Got a 10/10 For Masterpiece. There are some extra unseen footage as well. But my Hype is way up there. NO Spoilers

        Cartman? Is that you?

    • vic boss

      This is a really good trailer, I can’t wait anymore time for the game, and if I see a single spoiler I’ll go insane

  • Gatsu

    I just got notification from my local shop, where I pre-ordered CE. That shipment is confirmed, but that it will still be sent on September 1 and not a day before :P.

    • VENOMTIGER

      Mmm I was worried as Monday here in the UK is a bank holiday so no postal service so was hoping retailers realised this and got them out early so no one will miss out on launch day

    • Ishmael

      I thought Collectors Edition had been delayed?

      • Gatsu

        O_o where did you hear that?

        • Ishmael

          Yesterday someone wrote it in the comments here in MGI, few ours later i read the same message on a german forum. the guy stated his delivery, which he ordered in austria, will be delayed for 2 weeks. official report from konami: problems at the production. Maybe that doesn’t count for everyone?

          • Gatsu

            I see thanks, hmm it maybe isn’t for everyone then. Otherwise I believe they would’ve notified me in the e-mail :).

            But 2 weeks delay?… Damn that sucks 🙁

          • 2 weeks I’d flip shit. If I go to the store and they’re delayed I will go mental at them and take everything!!!! Hahagahaha

  • Gatsu

    “I don’t know how u get one this early. People can’t play it until next week, please don’t spoil anything. ”
    “No we gonna shoot them (streams) down. People waiting for the game for a long time. If they’re a big fan, shouldn’t do this. ”
    “Yea Yea, just enjoy the game and please keep your mouth shut until next week. Thank you. ”
    “Yea, we have requested to stop it (stream). ”
    “If you have one, we just want you to stay quiet until Sep. 1st. ”
    “I know it’s almost impossible but I just want to do my best to protect our fans. You can call me stupid guy lol ”

    Even Ken is pissed at these leaks ;(… It shouldnt happen with MGSV. But he still try protect us ;).

    • VENOMTIGER

      No spoilers from me If I do happen to get lucky!

      • Gatsu

        I’m sure not from any of us ^_^.

    • Javier

      They could bring the date sooner. At this point we can be sure that the september release was because mgo. And a good way to fight against this leaks and spoilers is to let us play it this week.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Lol, yeah Ken GET MAD! it’s good every once in a while, especially for something important 🙂

    • ddmaster

      I’m sure he’s just doing his job but I still can’t help feel bad for the guy. He and the folks at Kojipro have been working their tails off working on this game for the past 4 years and lets not forget about the awesome Fox engine as well for God knows how many years before that. All that time, energy, effort,and passion that went in so that each and every player can, on the day of release, be able to enjoy the MGSV experience they worked for being undermined and straight up ruined for some poor folks during just the last few days before it comes out. It is truly a sad and deplorable situation.

  • LetTheLegendComeBackToLife

    Yeah same here dude. Game UK shipped mine today. As long as it gets here by 1st September I’m cool. I’ll be working all weekend anyway so I won get a chance to play until after the bank holiday. So close but yet so far AHHHHHHHH

  • Gatsu

    The new trailer’s Metal Gear scene is homage to 1963 Jason and the Argonauts, one of Kojima’s favorites.

    I need to see this, I love old movies and their special effects but haven’t seen this yet :D.
    I wonder if it’s homage to these scenes or are there more like this in it, not many in youtube. Anyone watched the movie?

    • MrVux007

      i remember watching this when i was 6 years old….
      i was so amazed with the movie effects…..(yes i havent seen many movies at age of 6 lol )

      • JJBYACH

        I remember watching it in school when I was like 5, I barley remember any thing about it except I found it really creepy (that scene with the skeletons) … Memories

    • kuaikukia

      Never seen this one yet but I remember seeing like this kind of movie effect when I was little. The movie called Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977). I was scare but can’t stop watching.

      • MrVux007

        Sinbad of the Seven Seas was much better movie..even tho they were kind a mediocre at the time

        • kuaikukia

          you mean 1989? I did watch the trailer but kinda dislike that sinbad looks very like conan the barbarian lol

          • MrVux007

            ^yep the 1989 one 😀
            totaly agree on the Sinbad-conan part 😀

  • solideater

    Well street date is broken at most of the places saw 30 copies of ps4 version sold in 10 minutes 🙁

    • Gatsu

      But hey, only half of week left =). 😀 …although it feel like forever haha.

      • solideater

        My friend is selling it, he even told me you can have it for free but I am waiting for Sep 1 to play with everyone.. Its so hard to resist :-(…oh now X-360 version has also being sold so the frequency of stream would increase dramatically.

  • MarcoRM82

    Can’t believe that the cycle is finishing, i still remember playing metal gear on NES with muy brother when i was a children, that game leaved a mark on me, years later i saw on a ps1 demo disk that metal gear had returned!!! I was amazed with the gameplay and the story, at that time i felt that i was already a veteran of the series, now its going to end. Damn feelings ! This was more than a game for me..

  • kirtanloorii

    That’s it. Next time, I am pre-ordering from an Arab retailer!

    • VenomSnake123

      Haha, understandable 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Why are we here? Just to suffer waiting while others play? I’m gonna make them give me TPP.

    • MrVux007

      you just gave me an idea …

      • kirtanloorii

        Don’t bother. It won’t arrive at your place until after launch, lol.

        • MrVux007

          : /

          • kirtanloorii

            Yeah, lol. I was thinking the same thing. Trust me.

  • Gatsu
    • MrVux007

      mmmmmm cake

      • Gatsu

        I wonder if they discussed about the MGS film.

        • MrVux007

          totaly forgot about the existence of that 😀

    • Danny Patten

      HOLD ON! There is a MGS movie in the making? Why do i not know about this?

      • gerber

        It’s been known for quite some time 🙂

      • Gatsu

        Yes :D, I don’t remember the dude’s name who is directing it. But now that TPP is finished I wonder if Kojima can have some part in it :)… Or then he wants to just relax for a while.

  • H’m

    Can anyone else feel time slowing down with each day…

    • kirtanloorii

      Stay busy! That’s the key.

      • H’m

        yeah busy tryn to stay off mgi… incase we get that one asshat troll who mentions spoilers 🙂 BUT I CANT HELP IT LOL

        • kirtanloorii

          I trust Gatsu and the other mods. They seem to be real fast about that stuff.

          • H’m

            agreed…

          • Tong Ninja

            Yeah when I come on here, I see all the deleted comments and I’m like “What did I miss?”. haha

            Moderators are on point! 😀

    *** NO SPOILERS ***
    *** REVIEW SCORE ***

    26.08.2015

    Today “Psx Extreme” was released. It’s a Polish console magazine popular in my country (Poland). I bought it , I checked the score and it is very good.
    Reviewer Marcin Kosaman aka Koso gave MgsV a 9+ 🙂

    – “more exelent gameplay than story telling but don;t worry”
    -“It is MGS:Peace Walker + Ground Zeroes on steroids”

    -“Buddy system is exelent”
    -even when we are not doing story missions there is so much to do, you can even forget to do story because of quantity of content”
    – we can say that the game have elements that mgs fans will recognize and other “elements” for people that did not played mgs series
    and they will 70% undersatnd story. 30% is for fans
    -about POP UP.. he is amazed that when you look at further distances you can see so much details. He compared other ps4 games and said that mgsv is amazing in that subject. So people that complain about pop up… there is non ( xd minimal ).
    -no story information or any soilers
    – “It is better if you will listen to casette tapes becouse it will give you a lot about background story but THE REAL BOMB… ” ( he didn’t finished the sentence because no spilers xd )
    -“Phantom Pain is a wonderful closing. But what exacly it is closing I will leave for you to find out by yourself”

    Sounds good guys : ) There is one complain ( long heli flights xd )

    • Gatsu

      EDGE also scored TPP 9/10 :). Yong mentioned the heli flights few times, but don’t think it will bother me at all :D. Maybe the reason Yong didn’t like them was the limited amount of playtime.

      • JablokoMoloko86

        Same here. The walkman is something that will help me. And Quiet doing exercises in choper xd

      • kirtanloorii

        That’s what I was thinking. I actually look forward to cruising around in the chopper. I won’t be rushing anything.

      • JablokoMoloko86

        Game of the Year

        MgsV ( Rocky Balboa ) vs The Witcher 3 ( Ivan Drago ).

        From experiance we all know that Stalone always win : ) HEHEHE

        • Tong Ninja

          I think Fallout 4 (when it comes out) will be a contender as well. haha

        • Gatsu

          Hell yeah! Rocky (aka TPP) is gonna be victorious 😀 !
          Geralt

          Btw need to add this song into my TPP OST !

          • JablokoMoloko86

            Robert Tepper is the best. Nice gifs from Rocky IV :D:D:D

          • Gatsu

            Yea it’s nice song, but I put the wrong song lol :). Heart’s on Fire ftw!

          • JablokoMoloko86

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0Bs5ZeWReo This music may be gay for younger generation but for 80’s boys it’s so good xd

          • JablokoMoloko86
          • Even in First Blood…

            And the famous sentence…
            Col. Trautman (aka Cln Roy Campbell): “I don’t think you understand. I didn’t come to rescue Rambo from you. I came here to rescue you from him.”

          • JablokoMoloko86

            “Who are you !?”
            “I am your worst nightmare” : )

          • Yeah !!! This one was in R2. xDxD
            How about this one : Who do you think this man is? God?
            Colonel Trautman: No. God would have mercy

          • JablokoMoloko86

            simple one
            “don’t push” And Rambo is holding aknife close to a throat of that policeman xd

            R1:First Blood 😀

          • xDxDxD, how about lucky charms ?

          • Ishmael

            nah easy way out is better 😉

          • Gatsu

            or wait, were they both by Robert o_O.

          • Ishmael

            uuuh that song <3

          • Gatsu

            <3

          • DDADDB

            Rocky V has come to.

          • DDADDB

            A weapon to surpass Metal Gear.

          • JablokoMoloko86

            hehehe

        • solideater

          This will be a close fight. One thing going for Witcher 3 is that the game would remain fresh in people’s mind for longer time due to the constant support of the developers as well as expansions being released soon. One is 10 hour and second one is 20 hour long. I’m torn who to choose for GOTY.

          • JablokoMoloko86

            We also have to remember about one other game…

            Bloodborne
            https://scontent-fra3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpt1/t31.0-8/11872205_1634955346785643_3991057928166489714_o.jpg

            One of the greatest games I ever played.

            ( Platinium from my psn xd )

          • JablokoMoloko86

            If you like battle/war themed games it will be mgsv but if you prefere swords and magic it will be witcher 3. For me mgsv will be Number 1 because I like the series/saga more. I played Witcher 1 and 2 and I must tell that this is not my favorite lore. I like mgs lore more. For me mgsv on 1st place and bloodborne 2nd.

        • Sorry to bother but Snake is John Rambo, not Rocky, got it ? xD

          • JablokoMoloko86

            Sure 🙂 why not. Your version sounds good

          • Sorry, just realized it was your version 2h ago… I just posted something accordingly which should confirm your hypothesis. xD… 5 Days…

          • JablokoMoloko86

            5 days… this pain is our

      • JohnnyAB

        It bothered him because he was rushing through it, not truly exploring the map or really driving/going places on the map. I’ll just go places, and go back to MB when I feel like it, not just to fast-travel from mission to sidemission etc.. but hey limited schedules 😛

      • Sockerfri

        I cant help but getting annoyed when people whom get to play the game early on – such as Yong – start to bring up negative sides. I mean, I know they are supposed to review the game and all – good and bad – but I just get annoyed. Those f*ckers got to play it early! Everyone else has to wait.

    • JablokoMoloko86

      There is only one small spoiler ( sry ). He mantioned one name. A person that is not famous in mgs story but that person appeared somewhere. But i will not tell You. I will write it if admins give me permision xd BTW: it is not very important character to be honest…

      • Gatsu

        Hmm no need to tell it comrade :), but thanks for the translation it was great. Even if it’s not some important character, still it is more enjoyable to figure out the names etc in game :D.

        • JablokoMoloko86

          Sure no problem. Nothing more to add. Just 5 days and we’ll find out 🙂

    • Long live Poland! I am glad there are people in my country aside of me who are interested in MGS5 :D. At least I don’t know anyone else… I think I don’t have anyone with whom I’ll be able to talk about the game D:

      • JablokoMoloko86

        Niech żyje Polska 😀
        Duzo nas tutaj nie ma. Część na bank w ukryciu lurkuje na posty. Witam serdecznie : ) Znam tylko jednego Polaka na MGI. ( Vic Boss – gość ma niezwykła wiedze o mgs )

        • Sam chyba od Maja tu siedzę a pierwszy raz coś napisałem bodaj w Czerwcu więc teoria o lurkowaniu brzmi mi rozsądnie. Vic Bossa nie znam niestety :). No nic, wracam dokończyć granie w PW, bo został mi ostatni rozdział do zrobienia a TPP już prawie u drzwi!

  • Tong Ninja

    All the people here posting translated MGSV: TPP reviews from all over the world for everyone to see … THANKS! 😀

    Overall this game is getting a lot of praise and critical acclaim (no surprise though haha). 🙂

    5 more days ….

    • Gatsu

      I also found a Finnish pre-review, who managed to play 30 min but didn’t finish the game. So couldn’t give detailed scores, but he did praise it very much :]. Was it MGS2 that had a metascore of 96/100? TPP nearly there as more scores will be added to the site.

      • JJBYACH

        30 mins, lol – didn’t even complete the intro then! Assuming he played from the beginning.

        • Gatsu

          LOOOL I meant 30 hours!
          XD…

  • DiamondDoge

    Hey Guys!

    Maybe some of you could help me. I’m on my very own “Full Metal Gear Run” where I play every MG and also get every Platintrophy for those who got one. Now I finished MGS2, 3, 4 and got my Platin. All I’m missing now is Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes. Peace Walker I’m done 99% and only missing one trophy! Its the Trade Trophy which you get when you trade a soldier with someone else, saddly I can’t find a single online player to trade with me, so if anyone could help me getting that last trophy it would be totally awesome! I’m playing on the ps3, the trade would probably take us less than 5 minutes, since I really don’t care what soldier I get and which Soldier I give to you. Hope its okay that I posted this here!

    • Raven_Sorrow

      I can help you add me and we do it now raven_sorrow

      • DiamondDoge

        Woohoo thanks mate! Added you 🙂

      • Gatsu

        I could help too but need to get my net working in new house for my PS3/PS4. For PC it work fine but not on PS, it’s not because of the consoles though :P.

        Is the reason I haven’t been on PSN for a while :(.

        • DiamondDoge

          Thanks for the offer, but Raven_Sorrow alrdy helped me, still awesome how fast you guys are and willing to help! The MGS Community is just the best! 🙂

          • Raven_Sorrow

            No problem 🙂 and if anyone needs help S ranking any mission on PW just message me to my psn 😉

          • Mini gear

            S rank marathon wooooo!

      • DiamondDoge

        Big thanks again, now I got my Platin! Woohoo 😀

        • Raven_Sorrow

          Glad I could help 🙂

    • GreatShadow

      I read Platintrophy as Philantrophy

      • DiamondDoge

        Would have been awesome if the Platin Trophy for MGS 2 would have been named Philantrophy :DD

  • Available for download, yes. But on which platforms?
    Guessing iOS and Android.. But what about Windows devices?

    • JJBYACH

      *Sniggers* Windows devices…

      Jk, I doubt it personally since they haven’t explicitly mentioned it.

      • Also Windows gets nothing..
        I ask mainly because I don’t own a tablet, except for a Surface Pro 3.

  • Diego Guedes

    Do you, guys, think we’ll be able do manage motherbase with this app? Because we could do something like that with Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. I could send my ships to battle even when the console was off. It would be awesome to open the tablet and just assign people to teams and send soldiers to outer ops without having to turn on the console.

  • vic boss

    Anyone knows from which Month was the Playstation UK magazine that had those figures for the ds4 from metal gear ? They already had the one from August and it was for uncharted.

    • Diamond Dog

      September issue, it’s pretty much sold out everywhere. https://goo.gl/AJRtSt

      • vic boss

        September 2015? Because I live in the U.S. and I went to a bookstore and they still had the august issue so I may be able to get the September one but I don’t know if that’s the one that has those stickers for the ds4

        • Diamond Dog

          It came with the UK issue, not sure if US issue will come with it.

  • Gatsu

    Hahaha ;D ! Wow this was funny.

  • solideater

    Don’t wanna know what happens next…

  • JJBYACH

    VideoGamerTV did an epic analysis of the thematic undercurrent of TPP that many of the reviewers missed, and talk about why TPP proves that Silent Hills would’ve been amazing. They brought up a lot of interesting points – some I’ve never even thought of myself.
    Contains mild spoilers *watch from 7:30 if you want no spoilers whatsoever*

  • bigboss92110

    Take care guys…….. although my time here was short, but i enjoyed every moment cming to this website….. i’m going offline now to PLAYYYY PHANTOM PAIN….. hang in there brothers 🙂

    • Shiragama

      Have fun, buddy … 🙂

    • Gatsu

      All that matters is that you have been with us brother ;)… Enjoy your journey to Afghanistan and beyond.
      Yeah…we’ll survive :D.

  • David

    so, who is everyone’s favorite character and why? I have always liked ocelot most, just because regardless how cocky he started he always idolized big boss and stood for what was right and wanted fair fights with boss and didn’t cheat and when volgin was going to kill him he stepped in and just as a character he’s always been my favorite.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Between, Ocelot, Big Boss, The Boss, Solid Snake, I have a hard time picking, I would probably pick Big Boss as being my favorite simply because of the personal connection built up over many games and tough journeys. But of course Ocelot is the main character of the series 😉

    • RocketoPunch

      My favourite is Solid Snake. He has this purity to him and never gives up to reach his Goal. I love that. He reminds me more of the Boss than Big Boss does.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, after all Big Boss threw away the life and choices of The Boss to live his own life, he would not make the same choice as her.

      • Danny Patten

        Having said that, I’d enjoy a The Boss game :O

        • RocketoPunch

          A game about the Boss made with the new Fox Engine. I couldn´t handle the awesomeness of this.

          • Danny Patten

            Yes, where we get into the Story that shaped Big Boss. Geez that would make me throw money at Kojima-san

    • Shiragama

      Big Boss, because I like stories of men going down the dark path and seeking revenge. After that there is probably Ocelot too, just ’cause he’s cool and dangerous as hell. But I also like Raiden with his complicated backstory and all the mindfucks he went trough in MGS2 and his transformation afterwards. Apart from them, I’m pretty excited about Quiet and what she’s all about. After all, a few reviewers said, that she has an interesting backstory and story in general in TPP, so let’s see. Man, it’s really hard to just have ONE favourite character in the mgs lore. It’s practically impossible, but yeah, Big Boss is my favourite.

      • David

        I also enjoy the twisted dark sides they turn to, ocelot transform to another person mentally and boss turns into a “demon” both just amazing turns and I love seeing the change this game will show that amazingly I bet.

    • Gatsu

      Biggu Bossu. It would take me too long to write all the reasons, but he’s my hero. Most favorite character ever.

    • JJBYACH

      I like BB as he is a more complex character (not that Solid isn’t but we see a greater arc with BB), and I just love stories revolving around tragic heroes.

    • vic boss

      “A hero forever loyal to the flames of war. Rests in Outer Heaven “.

      Big Boss without a doubt. I mean Ocelot, The Boss and Solid snake came close too, but Big Boss man his story is just the best.

    • willworkfortoys

      I like Ocelot too for the same reasons you mention plus I like westerns and he looks like a badass old school western character. After that Naked Snake.

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      My favorite is Ocelot also for all the same reasons. 2nd fav big boss.

  • S.D Plisken

    Easy , Big Boss, the story is about him at every level and every canon game. From Snake Eater to Guns Of the Patriots , the story is all about the will of Big Boss!

    • GreatShadow

      Pretty much like Star Wars was the story of Anakin Skywalker.
      Only that the MGS prequels are actually very well made.

    • Ishmael

      His will is highly affected by the will of The Boss. Just sayin’…

      • No Place For Hayter

        The Boss plays the phantom to the entire series, her will and actions and thoughts really created the MGS series of events through influence.

  • GreatShadow

    Only 5 days left!

    • semper_ils

      pfff thats 5 too long XD

      • ddmaster

        Tell me about it. All this waiting has me aging super fast like Old Snake. Normally I’d put an lol but really this wait is murder.

  • JablokoMoloko86

    This is photo of metal gear rex from mgs1/mgs4 and… what is that ?

    He heve a bonner too. People need to relize that this is part of the series xd Why people not complain about mgs1 “dick” ? Maybe because of the graphics or camera. Dunno. This is the proof that we all saw it in mgs1 🙂 This is not new:D

    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/817Cb9S-9zL._SL1500_.jpg

    • I think Rex has the best design so far. Of course, Sahel will get his rockets-in-the-head ratio’s (no worries) but in term of design, I keep sticking with Rex… Ray was more organic-looking and very cool but Rex always looked more Robotech-cool (to me).

    • willworkfortoys

      I think it has more to do with the anthropomorphism of the new Metal Gear, both in appendage scale and the way it moves. I don’t care about the gun but the stuff that looks glued on to make it seem more with the time period of the game, like the batteries, despite it obviously being the most advanced MG in the series.

      • The first MG could not be either than a 2D picture. I guess Ray was too pushy on organic features, not enough “mech’ed”, too fluid, like an animal which was KP wanted, but look at Mk. II, the most deadly MG on earth…

      • No Place For Hayter

        “like the batteries” You mean the two redish beams sticking out of its waist? those are it’s swords that it uses, not a battery, lol, yes that means it has two swords.

        • willworkfortoys

          No, I’m referring to the coppertop mofos strapped to its legs. Like someone said, “hey, batteries existed then. Lets put some giant duracell ‘power cells’ on its thighs.” It is much more pronounced from the spoiler images I’ve seen than the video but now I can’t unsee them.

          • No Place For Hayter

            OH, those things, lol. Yeah.

          • stocchinet .

            I always thinked about them as giant hand granades

    • No Place For Hayter

      I don’t know, from seeing a penis on the back of TPP sneaking suit to the new metal gear having a boner, both of which I did not see until someone pointed it out and said “look its this!”, I just think SOME PEOPLE are over sexualized like most of society and they make connections that others wouldn’t see, you think anyone on KP’s saw either of those things like that? nope not a single one, because if someone did see it it would have most likely been changed…… that or brushed aside, because it really isn’t what people see it as, lol. That’s my thoughts on it.

      • What’s up with this penis on the sneaking suit? I feel like I missed something.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Do you really want to know? once seen it cannot be unseen, lol.

          • I believe I can live with this knowledge 😀

          • No Place For Hayter

            Okey Dokey.

            A while back (after the release of the Africa gameplay demo) people started really looking at the new sneaking suit, and this is what some saw.

            http://i.imgur.com/iS07srt.png

            An upside down penis.

          • BUahahaha, this is awesome :D. Thanks!

  • willworkfortoys

    Anyone have any good marathon tips? This is the first game I plan on marathoning with 4 days off work starting the 2nd. That gives me the evening of Sept. 1st to dl everything, transfer all saves, set up companion apps, and enter codes for exclusives and start thumbing through the guide. After that is minimum 40hrs of gameplay over 4 days. Good plan?

    • vic boss

      Don’t rush through it, take your time, you don’t know how many games I passed in a week or less and it made me think they were way too short. So don’t rush it.

      • willworkfortoys

        I don’t plan on rushing, just unlocking as much as possible while I don’t have anything else to worry about. I plan on relaxing and enjoying but I’ll be damned if I don’t enjoy this at maximum. haha

    • No Place For Hayter

      I’ve got none, But I recommend not over doing yourself with speed, play the game in a relaxed mood, don’t feel the need to rush anything, of course if you want to finish story first you can set up priorities of main missions over side ops, but just set up a way of playing so you play as much as possible while still being relaxed about the whole thing.

    • Your titties will go hot on this one. Strap them.

      • willworkfortoys

        My titties always go hot. Can we unlock nipple lube through our R&D strut?

        • Well, if some dark minerals come out of them I guess you have your ticket for the Mother Base’s Medic platform.

    • Danny Patten

      Don’t rush. Just enjoy. Have your favorite food and booze ready to enjoy a ride unlike any other!

    • No Place For Hayter

      OH I got one. Set up a good sleep schedule, where you get enough sleep but not too much. Also have a good amount of easy food around to eat so you don’t use a lot of your time making food to eat.

    • Deuce

      I suggest meal planning for the four days. I’d make a few days worth of chicken and rice/veggies or what not so that all I had to do was reheat it. Gaming marathons are all about time management and who wants to prep food when they need to be fultoning bears.

  • No Place For Hayter

    The closer TPP gets the more I theorize about TPP due to how people say how amazing the story is, and how it changes everything, lol.

    • What I like in Kojima is that the story is always an option (always a top-fair one). Video game is something that seduce him more than movies (let’s dare saying this). A person that spent all his life with what he introduced in this industry has our passion.

  • Gatsu

    Do not post screenshots of unseen parts of the hospital sequence… It is not allowed, sure can feel hyped if get it early but MGI stays clear of them for now…

  • Golgari

    I can’t wait. I will be playing this game for 1000+ hours. I will explore everything for sure. I want to see every easter egg and message Kojima has sent us. I’m ready.

    and ofc, I love you MGI community. Be nice and don’t post spoilers. 🙂

    • Gatsu

      I’ll be playing over 1000h too definitely :).

      • stocchinet .

        I will play over 1000h in the first day only, i direspect the laws of physics

        • No Place For Hayter

          I agree, who cares about time, lets find another planet that has over 1000 hours in a day 🙂

  • Fritillary

    I’ll be genuinly shocked if it comes to Windows phones.

  • LMFAO!

    Sorry if it has been posted already.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Probably not posted here but I saw it a while back, funny stuff.

      “Now it is” ROFL.

    • kirtanloorii

      I saw it a long time ago and I laughed all day.

    • RocketoPunch

      I´d do this all day, if i was David Hayter XD

  • Mauricio Acosta

    Has anyone’s Collectors Edition from USA’s GameStop shipped already?

    • The Reaver

      Mine hasn’t. Yours?

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      No. My guess is Friday or Saturday,

  • DV87

    There is a new article on ign detaling how boss fights work in the game. Someone should watch it and report back to say if there are any spoilers or not…. Someone who is not me…

    • Gatsu

      If it’s article detailing about boss fights, I think it’s definitely spoilers.

      • DV87

        Just broke down and watched it. It didnt have footage or spoil anything. They basically just said that the game handles boss encounters in an open environment very well.

        • Raven_Sorrow

          You weakling! XD Kidding i cant blame you XDD

          • DV87

            I feel like Chico right now

          • Raven_Sorrow

            XDD

      • Golgari

        No. there are no spoilers. This is from their podcast “Beyond” where he (editor) tried to explain if there are bosses at all in the game and that they work very well in the sandbox environment.
        He did a good job with it.
        Everyone can watch it.

        • Gatsu

          Hmm okey that’s surprising. I’d expect to see spoilers with every video by now, lol.
          I’m looking forward to the boss fights :).

          • No Place For Hayter

            It’s actually quite hard to wrap my head around TPP having boss fights, it has been so long since I played a good game that had them, it is one of those important/awesome features that the gaming industry has left behind.

            With that in mind, the boss fights in TPP will be even more mind blowing as I cannot picture them 🙂

  • Tripa Seca

    Anyone noticed on the launch trailer the resemblance of the metal gear and the Predator? (first post here, just glad I found this place! Great community! Congrats!)

    • No Place For Hayter

      Welcome! glad you found us comrade ( ‘ ‘ )7

      Lol, now that you mention it the rail gun does look like the plasma cannon on the shoulder of a predator, lol.

      • Tripa Seca

        It has some ‘hair’ on each side of the head… Reminded me of schwarzenegger rival lol! Thanks for the welcome!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Watched it again, and you are totally right, lol.

      But what is up with today quite a few folks who have gotten TPP, I feel like today should have been the release day, lol.

      • Gatsu

        I feel like I’m the only one who haven’t gotten it, lol ;(.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I know right! lol.

        • Tripa Seca

          Store owners here in Brazil must think i’m crazy bc I stop by every day asking about the game. Some said set. 1st, some, OCT! Lol! Some gray market stores here sell like 5, 6 days earlier that release date, but so far…. nothing! It’s driving me nuts! But glad people in the ‘developed countries’ got theirs! Guess we’re in the back of the line lol! Good luck to all of us! Beware of spoilers!! A bragger is always a potential spoiler!

          • FooXz

            BR? 🙂 add eu, PSNID: FOOXZ

  • kirtanloorii

    All of these early releases just kinda kills the fun of the launch moment. I’ll be thinking the moment I get the game “damn, hundreds of people (it seems) have already played and beat this.” I hate to sound mean, but I wish they would keep it to themselves. I have been following this game for YEARS now and I feel like I am too big of a fan to be the last person to get the game.

    Good for you that you got the game. Please keep it to yourself. Posting about it serves only to brag.

    • Gatsu

      I kinda agree, maybe I should just delete further comments/pictures like that. It might sound childish thing to do, but it makes me so jealous lol and then read constantly of someone getting it way before the actual release date. While I have to properly wait for the last days, even after suffering so long.

      I’d love to play it at the same time like everyone else, although it is only 4-5 days left…just feels like damn forever, y’know? And yeah I know zillions will still get it at September 1, but this sucks. Some are currently playing in Afghanistan or Africa and witnessing the epic story>_<…

      August get the hell outta here already…

      • Tyler Torgersen

        “Why are we here? Just to suffer?”
        Yeah pretty much? T.T

    • Hussain Alkhalaqi

      You have to realize that statistically the people who already own the game can’t possibly be over 5% of the people that will play the game, the developers and testers and reviewers already played through the game so I don’t mind someone knowing the game before I do, and I can’t feel the same because I know that the majority of people who’ll play this game will play it together at launch, I know it makes you feel like you’re very late, but in reality, they’re very early, we’re not odd, they are.

      • kirtanloorii

        I understand. But I am seeing this stuff everywhere I look, lol. I won’t stop talking to my MGS friends, but that means I have to be constantly exposed to braggers and their early copies.

  • PhantomSnake

    These early releases are saddening. The earliest I will be getting mine is the night before. I don’t understand why shippers and retailers can’t follow simple release date procedures. I personally know the manager of my local GameStop and even they stated the earliest they can release is the night before.

    • Gatsu

      Sure is, but we just gotta hang in there. It’s the same for most Finnish stores, they usually do a midnight release. I think for the game to launch on September 1 was what the developers etc were planning, but it never works anymore as shippers/retailers don’t know what day it is.

      • PhantomSnake

        I live in Missouri and from what the manager stated corporate won’t even allow the game to be touched until at least 9 pm the night before….

        • NameUndecided

          I asked a Gamestop person recently and he told me their store, at least, isn’t even receiving the game until Monday afternoon anyway. So at least they’re not… like… playing it in the break room all weekend?

          • Alex Lopez Manriquez

            here in Chile the copies arrive today and I got it! , but to be fair the major game stores are restricted to release date in especial the ones on konami site, I asked in every gamestore from monday and some minors also were restricted , but there always a few who don´t care 😉

  • Gatsu
    • FZJanimated

      So there is going to be another trailer or more like a farewell thing? :O

      • Gatsu

        I wasn’t familiar with the word commemoration at first, but after checking translation it’s some sort of farewell/memorial thing yeah.

        P.S. you know what Kojima gave Geoff -__-? Don’t wanna say it so kirtanloorii won’t get mad at me lol, but goddamit Dx Kojimaaaaa.

    • Mini gear

      gets to play early and meet kojima T-T

  • vic boss

    So how many of you are buying two or more copies of the game? If I get overhyped Monday night I may buy the game digitally , that’s if my CE doesn’t arrive on September 1st or close to that date. Because I don’t want to wait too much for the game.

    • kirtanloorii

      I remember when I got the CE of Lightning Returns Final Fantasy 13. It was a day late, lol.

    • Gatsu

      I pre-ordered my CE long time ago and will arrive on September 1 :D. But after upgrading my PC, I’ll stick with Steam and bought 3 copy for PC :). Also possibly able to download it on Steam already August 31st, which is awesome.

      It’s at least something we’ve given permission for, unlike these current early “releases”.

      • vic boss

        Holy shi*, why 3 copys tho? I’m just seeing if I’ll buy the second one lol.

        • Gatsu

          2 others for my brothers ;). I still got one extra copy after buying the GTX graphic card, but not sure yet who to give it lol.

          • Bigbossjack

            Good work looking after your bros

          • stagueda

            that’s a lot of copies lol personally i’m a digital kind of guy so digital PS3 version, unfortunately no MGSV PS4 will be sold in Portugal so this wasn’t gonna be my time at upgrading to the PS4… maybe next year who knows… Still even if i upgrade i’m gonna buy MGSV again 😉

          • Gatsu

            I don’t usually spend so much money on games… 🙂

          • stagueda

            Same here, typically i buy big psn bargain prices or used games things like that i have so little time for gaming that i typically only buy exclusives, although and i talked about it today to a colleague TPP is the only game i gladly pay full price and do not regret the slightest

      • Bigbossjack

        Im getting thre copies. One digital, day one edition and the CE. Giving the day one edition to my good friend who introduced me to MGS. Going to put up that bionic arm in my office.

    • The Reaver

      As long as my CE arrives within the week of launch (I see no reason for it not to considering I ordered it way back in March) then I’d much rather not buy more than one copy of a game.

    • No Place For Hayter

      One CE, for me.
      One Day One Edition, for my brothers birthday.
      One (eventually) for PC.
      And if I don’t get my CE by September 2nd, I will be buying it digital as well.

    • CaspburnT

      I couldn’t handle the wait for my CE so I bought digitally. Guilt felt=0

      • vic boss

        I’m just waiting to see when my CE will arrive , and if it’s too much time and if my friend is not available to go to his house on Monday night I’ll have to buy it digitally.

    • clintonmeade40

      I purchased 3 ce and digital download. One ce is for staying sealed in my mgs collection, one is for my personal enjoyment and the other I haven’t really decided on what to do with yet. Mgs is the only games I go all out for anymore. Still have one ce/le of each game from substance through gotp.

          so does mine. One does not sell his guitars. Its like selling your soul. even an mgs isn’t worth that.

        I pre-ordered the hard cover too! I also got the “boombox” that was shown on MGI before. It’s awesome!

  • glitchbomb

    Hello my MGI brethren, just thought I would share my recent MGS related purchase. The Golden Joystick presents (I love how this part is in huge text) A HIDEO KOJIMA BOOK, the ultimate guide to metal gear.
    I was initially not as excited as I should have been for this book considering what an awesome job they did. I JUST received it but with just peeking through it, this thing is FULL of mgs goodies and details on Kojima himself. This is even great for old fans that may know much of this stuff already because of how well everything is put together.
    Here are some random pages. Please forgive my crappy camera. First pic is for size comparison. 😀

    FOUR MORE DAYS!!!~

    • Gatsu

      Woah! That looks really awesome =), thanks for the pictures :D. Looks like even your cat is a big fan of MG and Kojima <3! I am still waiting for my own book, but not sure how long it takes to arrive here.

      4 days left indeed <(^O^<).

      • glitchbomb

        It’s weird, two or three days ago someone mentioned they had received theirs. Wonder why there is such a big gap. I thought Joystick was in the U.S (i could be wrong) and the guy who got his was outside the u.s. aaaanyways. You are going to love it. Hopefully yours was handled a little better than mine was. :/

      • Mini gear

        i just mine too boss, the cover is so dang cool ^-^

    If some of you are still getting TPP before September 1st, would it be okey not to post pictures etc of them here every time? I understand it’s super excited moment, or actually well I can’t imagine the feeling when get it. But some of us still gotta wait days for TPP… and would be nice not to see all these comments so often. It’s kinda depressing :P.

    I mean it’s not against the rules or anything… but if you care about the feelings of us who gotta still wait painfully, please don’t do it lol.

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Hey guys Before i share My post . i just want to clear some things up :

    -Tpp could be my favorite game whatever reviews where made by 0- 10

    -I’m Full exited like any of us and bring up negative stuff is not so great since we are near the relase date but what i’m gonna show you something really important

    Whatever your are fanboys or not There is no question Tpp deserve to be one of the best games ever created and from a objetive standpoint , Reviewers need to tell the truth to the media ( If the game sucks.. well sucks . if the game is great for you well explain why ) What i can’t stand is people who hate some developer in particulary and uses his power for trying to destroy his Art .

    Tpp scores now ( 95/100 top 40 in scores of all time in Metacritic ) and if it wasn’t for washington post this game will be First or Second in the history of highest Scores ever launched

    I’m sharing the link to the reviewer so you can see it by yourself .

    Personally i’m doing a letter about this ( You can think.. Man stop this… just enjoy the game ) Well no.. Journalist are professionals who win money .. You know some people live in the street .. Be a journalist means you can’t just write things without any Objetive Thoughts .. Whatever hate or love is in your mind.

    This is the most disrespectful retarded review i’ve ever seen in a journalist Videogaming magazine and we need to stop journalist like this guy if you truly care about VIDEO GAMING TRANSPARENCY . Could be hatred to Kojima anti- americanism Politics or whatever but you can see he put an 8 without any logical reason

    hope you are doing well guys =)

    • Gatsu

      Yeah…there always have to be one scumbag review who can’t do it properly.

    • SholidOnline

      I vote for you, man. All the best!

    • Gray Bull

      Washington Post need to know that they have to be respectful to the reader, after all, the readers give them something to swallow. I said that because this review contain mild spoilers of the game, without previous warning. According to the other articles & reviews of the game, Konami have a strict NDA agreements with all the reviewers, until the game comes out. I hope that Konami does something well and erased their stupid disrespectful shitty ass review.

  • Gatsu

    IMGMR reviewed TPP 10/10 :). Perfect scores keep coming.

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      You see this ?.. Masterpiece Scores, Our new home

    • alenoe97

      I have seen now the review: is fantastic and speaks very well of the game a part of one thing…..like in other reviews the only cons of the game is the storyline(a very very very important aspect for me in a metal gear game)……I m very worried about this…. What do you think guys? There’s to worry about?

      • Gatsu

        I’ve also heard many said it’s amazing. Don’t worry brother.

        • alenoe97

          Thanks gatsu :D!

    • WrongDirectionZ

      can you post a link for that review gatsu?

      • Gatsu

        Sorry I didn’t post it earlier, because if it contained spoilers as I didn’t read it or then I forgot :D.

        But I can link it later when start up pc, using phone at the moment. Found the link from N4G TPP section.

        • WrongDirectionZ

          makes sense to me. In this case i wont read that eather ^^ btw thanks for keeping MGI spoilerfree

          ” the world called for wetwork… and you answered!”

        I haven’t read either of them, but alenoe below said IMGMR don’t contain spoilers.

  • SholidOnline

    So, because of financial incapabilities, I’m not ordering the MGSV PS4, but I did run by this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B012JTVPBM
    So I decided to order it. Cheap and decent reviews.

    • Ishmael

      there is a site were you can buy stickers so your ps4 looks almost just like the phantom pain console. can provide the link if you want.

  • H’m

    Hey guys, just wanted to share this incase anyone hadnt seen it.. Il be honest mgo dosnt interest me at all but the FOB system sounded pretty sweet.. I just dont know now, but im sure we will soon enough

    http://youtu.be/zrTqNg9_SNY

  • MichaelPayneV

    All i will say after seeing somke new Unofficial footage (NOT SPOILER, but delete it if you think is it) is that the Graphics even on PS4 are above what we saw at GDC 2013, and that Stefanie Joosten is a Wonderful Actress, HELL, she might be the next Cara Delevigne, the Next Model turned Actress!

    • You knew how to keep what you saw to yourself. Thanks dude. But yeah, the graphics and characters are super well done. I’m glad you liked what you saw. I know you could go into a frenzy about these things haha. I’m interested in seeing it maxed out on PC personally now more than ever.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Damn right, if on PS4 it looks better than it did on PC in 2013, then i cannot imagine how it willl look on PC now at launch!

        Wish more people who get the PC version, as it is better.

        • I’m not about to spend a ton on a PC when all my friends are on consoles and I enjoy my console the way it is. But I get what you’re saying. Hopefully someone with a baller ass PC uploads all the cut scenes after release. Sometimes nothing beats watching hours of cut scenes on YouTube haha

          • JohnnyAB

            Sept 1. the cutscenes will all be up in no time, 1080 60fps and shit lol

          • MichaelPayneV

            Plus, the PC version is the one that has all the features crucial to Hideo’s Directing, like the Focus that the Fox Engine was praised by at GDC 2013, the one feature that Kojima Productions praised during the panel, and made it clear how impotant that feature is for the Fox Engine, and how it is the next step in Video Game Cinematics, making the Virtual Camera look and act more like a real Movie Camera!

            PS: Hideo also praised PC as a Development tool and Gaming platform over the last 2 years, so i’m pretty sure that the 100% “A HIDEO KOJIMA” experience you will get on PC, and GZ already showed how the Focus changed the way the intro felt, as on PC you don’t see Chico’s face at first due to the camera being focused on Skull Face, which made the Chico Reveal scene have a bigger impact (Also the XOF Patch dorpping, and then focused on the FOX Patch.

            Yes, is all subjective, but i feel like i have the freedom to say this whatever i feel about this game on this website, that’s what forums are made for anyway, discussion and arguments, believe it or not arguments are a good thing for both the website and the readers, for the website, more comments, more trafic, and for us, we soemtime find people who chalange our intelligence, and so far NO ONe on here challanged my intelligence and made me think better before i give an argument than @mrvux007:disqus, we are trully like Snake and Skull Face, Rivals who Respect each other!

          • Gatsu

            I just think it’s best for people to play on the platform they feel comfortable with.
            I think the reason some think you are pc fan boy Michael, is because you bring PC so often to discussions involving graphics. It’s the best but if graphics truly aren’t the most important thing, then no need.

            Also for many I think it’s as crimson said, lots of friends on certain platform. The reason I’ve just avoided your arguments is as I said, play on what you like. I don’t wanna force someone to buy expensive PC. or start some console war. Arguments are OK as long as they don’t end up like some of your and Vux’s battles in the past.

            Although I always enjoy reading them,lol :).

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, the Game is coming out soon, so our battle is over.

            Again, i just wanted the best for this community, i guess it was just, not worth wasyioing time, as in the end, id doesn’t matter that much.

            PS: As you can see all i said was, quote “Wish more people who get the PC version” and then Vux got all deffensive with no reason, i wasn’t even talking with him anyway, but with @crimsonfoxMGI:disqus.

            Anyway, The Best is Yet to Come! See you all on the battlefield!

            Np brother it’s been a joy having you here :D. 4 days… then MGI shall be free ^_^
            BTW wanted to say that you and Vux are good rivals 😉
            You pull each other into arguments automatically lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Like David and Eli!

          • Gatsu

            Indeed ;)!

          • MrVux007

            I had my share of reasons 🙂 as im sure the rest of the community knows them by now and um i think you left out the most important part of that quote, “Wish more people who get the PC version….AS IT IS BETTER” 🙂

          • MrVux007

            “Plus, the PC version is the one that has all the features crucial to Hideo’s Directing, like the Focus that the Fox Engine was praised by at GDC 2013, the one feature that Kojima Productions praised during the panel, and made it clear how impotant that feature is for the Fox Engine, and how it is the next step in Video Game Cinematics, making the Virtual Camera look and act more like a real Movie Camera!”

            Um you do know that he was praising the engine he created,not the platform itself right?I think we all know that PC is where the games are made by now lol

            Mind posting where he specificaly praised the PC,as the development platform and not the FOX engine itself?Cuz all the praising i remember he stated was in this article http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/02/13/hideo-kojima-talks-ps4-can-render-1080p-at-60fps-with-room-to-spare-the-closest-to-photorealism/

            And that “focus” you keep mentioning is called “blur”(also present on consoles in TPP),which a lot of PC folk on steam were negative about…

            “Yes, is all subjective, but i feel like i have the freedom to say this whatever i feel about this game on this website, that’s what forums are made for anyway, discussion and arguments, believe it or not arguments are a good thing for both the website and the readers, for the website, more comments, more trafic, and for us, we soemtime find people who chalange our intelligence, and so far NO ONe on here challanged my intelligence and made me think better before i give an argument than MrVux007, we are trully like Snake and Skull Face, Rivals who Respect each other!”

            Actually its both objective and subjective 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            What did i say about the Best?

        • MrVux007

          it is objectively slightly better,but not subjectively 🙂
          and as i said,the engine improvements will equal graphics improvements thru time…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Looks like i need to make this clear once for all.

            The reason i wish more people would chose the PC version, is not because is the PC version, is because based on what we have seen so far it is better, i’m not a plastic defender, i just want this community to get the best out of TPP, therefore get it on PC!

            To prove you that i’m not Bulls*ing you, i will give you this. Arkham Knight, Watch Dogs and AC Unity, as Games, they are great, but i wish no one would buy those Games on PC, and instead buy the PS4 version, as the PC versions of these have worse graphics than the PS4 version, which doesn’t make any sense (Especially Arkham Knight) and are really, really bad optimized, which means that you will get the worst both Cinematic and Gameplay experience if you buy those on PC!

            Do you need more proof , haven’t i made my self clear enough that i’m not a PC Fan-boy/Defender, but that all i want is to advice this community of which platform to get this Game on in order to get the better experience, especially considering that this is THE LAST Hideo MG Game?

            The difference between me and you is that i recomand the PC Version based on what i have seen, and HELL, played so far (GZ) while you are just defending the PS4 version, because Play Station and Nostalgia, i get that, but please, get this once for all, I’M NOT A PLASTIC DEFENDER, meanwhile, you are, you’re just in denial.

            Done ranting, and in advance, i forgive you for evetything you will say in this Next Reply from you, so give me your best shot and arguments!

          • MrVux007

            “The reason i wish more people would chose the PC version, is not The difference between me and you is that i recomand the PC Version based on what i have seen, and HELL, played so far (GZ) while you are just defending the PS4 version, because Play Station and Nostalgia, i get that, but please, get this once for all, I’M NOT A PLASTIC DEFENDER, meanwhile, you are, you’re just in denial.because is the PC version, is because based on what we have seen so far it is better, i’m not a plastic defender, i just want this community to get the best out of TPP, therefore get it on PC!”

            Yes you are a plastic defender mate,no need to “damage control” your statements in the past

            “To prove you that i’m not Bulls*ing you, i will give you this. Arkham Knight, Watch Dogs and AC Unity, as Games, they are great, but i wish no one would buy those Games on PC, and instead buy the PS4 version, as the PC versions of these have worse graphics than the PS4 version, which doesn’t make any sense (Especially Arkham Knight) and are really, really bad optimized, which means that you will get the worst both Cinematic and Gameplay experience if you buy those on PC!”

            That proves only one thing and that is that you are aware of poor optimization for some PC games…thats all,if you ask me some of those games were equally bad on consoles

            “Do you need more proof , haven’t i made my self clear enough that i’m not a PC Fan-boy/Defender, but that all i want is to advice this community of which platform to get this Game on in order to get the better experience, especially considering that this is THE LAST Hideo MG Game?”

            To me you are only digging that fanboy hole more and more by those statements…you are giving advice to the community about your own PREFERED platform,while im giving advice that people should play on whatever platform they want or prefer…”the better experiance” will always be determined by user preference…take me for example i have a gaming PC,that would probably run MGSV on MID-HIgh settings and i still prefer PS4 version…Why? cuz most of my friends are playing it on that platform,the cosy feeling playing on the couch(yes you can plug a PC,before you say it…but consoles are more ideal for that),the graphical difference between the two isnt huge and most of all its all about “what feels right”…

            “The difference between me and you is that i recomand the PC Version based on what i have seen, and HELL, played so far (GZ) while you are just defending the PS4 version, because Play Station and Nostalgia, i get that, but please, get this once for all, I’M NOT A PLASTIC DEFENDER, meanwhile, you are, you’re just in denial.”

            The difference is,that you recommend a PC version to other people based on YOUR preference not on other peoples preference,while im doing the opposite,im reccomending people to play the platform they feel more comfortable on,and being realistic on gaming aspects…

            i also played GZ on both PC and PS4? and no it isnt only because of Playstation and Nostalgia,i already mentioned the reasons above…

            im not in denial,i just have more “grounded” point of view and different preference then you…and yes again,you are a plastic defender

            “Done ranting, and in advance, i forgive you for evetything you will say in this Next Reply from you, so give me your best shot and arguments!”

            We both know you will never stop ranting and leave your forgiveness statements for yourself thank you very much…

            tl:dr I will always tell people to play on whatever theirpreferred platform is while stating ups and downs of all platforms and also having a “grounded/realistic” point of view on what is a huge and small difference between those platforms…
            While you will recommended your preferred platform which is PC,while stating mostly pros of that preferred platform and cons of the other platforms…to you PC will be always on top no matter what,which is fine by me…to me all gaming platforms are equal when you take everything into consideration

          • MichaelPayneV

            You should write a book, and call it “Played like a Damn Fiddle” because that’s how you react.

            All of this could have been avoided if only you didn’t reply to my reply to Crimson, but no, you got aaaaall salty, and…hatever, let’s let the past behind, and return as Metal Gear fans, that’s how @Nyxus:disqus would’ve wanted!

          • MrVux007

            I react quite rationally and with my fair share of knowledge to differentiate between a gamer and a fanboy…also i think i could write that book,and entitle it to you 😉
            Well i am a “salty sea dog” if thats what you meant…
            Look dude,i will keep replying as loong as you keep replying to me and as long as you say “XY platform offers better experience then XY platform”…
            Note that i never even posted a single platform vs platform thread before you did…
            so in the end its up to you
            and regardless of what Nyxus wants(take no mistake,i have an utmost respect towards what he created and the articles he wrote),i will keep to my morals until September 1st

          • MichaelPayneV

            Look, how about we don’t take those things this seriously next time, and instead have fun and laugh at each other instead?

      • MichaelPayneV

        You feel it too, don’t you?

    • Ishmael

      Cara Delevigne is totally overrated.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Nah, she is a great actress!

    • H’m

      richard gere heavy 5…n heavy solid pain the pahntom menace i lost my shit, thanx mr payne i had a crap day in i need this.. 🙂

  • VenomSnake1974

    OT
    Finally managed to achieve my collector edition, after the epic fail of my retailer (he didn’t answer the pre-order mail from Konami, so no collector edition :-/)!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Wait a minute, i just realised something.

    Did Konami not sent Review Coppies, all the Reviews are based on what those peopel have played on the event Only?

    If Yes, then What The Hell Konami?!

    • Tong Ninja

      Yeah, seems like no one got sent a review copy at all. I was reading and watching some of the reviews/Q and A sessions over the last few days … and it looks like all the media outlets and other gaming journalists went to play at the 5 day boot camp.

      • Kojima did all he could to keep the ending a secret. Sending copies out to the wild could have spoiled it early. I don’t think they worried about bad scores haha.

        • Tong Ninja

          Yeah, it’s fine. 🙂

        • MichaelPayneV

          No offense, but do you really by that BS excuse?

  • J_muse72

    People are playing TPP right now…you feel this pain too don’t you…

    • Gatsu

      4 days isn’t much but how does it feel like forever o_O goddamit.

      I didn’t think this last week would be so hard to wait ;(…
      Gotta celebrate when is last day!

  • WrongDirectionZ

    About a year ago or so Nyx posted an article regarding the interpretation of MGS 2. Is that still somewhere to be found??

    • Boldizar

      Metagearsolid.org has everything you’ll need to get started and more.

      • WrongDirectionZ

        na thanks

    • RocketoPunch

      this is so funny lol.

      • Mr.Pony

        • RocketoPunch

          OMG another clone!

    • Wooooow we should all meet there in 6 months and trade metal gear stories and get pissed

      • NegaScott128

        Unfortunately, it closes on September 1.

  • JJBYACH

    So I was reading the Meristation review (poorly translated from Spanish) that mentioned various interesting things – like he seemed to be 100% adamant no one actually completed the game – but of course I believe some of it was lost in translation:

    “Ningún periodista ha completado la inaccesible misión 46 y desconoce los efectos que desencadena. Y eso, cuando se habla del director japonés, tiene una explicación, propósito y genialidad que pronto sabremos.”

    He also seemed to give new info on how side missions work but Google translate made it incomprehensible

    “Igualmente ocurre con las misiones secundarias, de cantidad aplastante. Procuran contenido para una abultada cantidad de horas, algunas mejor o de manera más fresca que otras, pero nuevamente son un factor clave en el juego. Muchas secundarias tienen peso en la trama y obligatoriamente tendremos que escogerlas para seguir el hilo de la historia. En cambio habrá un grueso que estén orientadas a que la Mother Base mejore sus atributos y estadísticas con el rescate de prisioneros, oficiales y demás personal especialista -rangos A o S- que incorporar a nuestras filas. También existen secundarias que tienen dificultad -que se deben jugar en modo Supervivencia o Extremo obligatoriamente- y duración equivalente a otras misiones de la historia, bastante duras de batir y que se desbloquean cuando se completan las menos trascendentes. Completarlas a la vez que vamos desgranando la historia, de forma paralela y al mismo ritmo, nos ayudará a seguir exactamente el mismo camino en el que acabó Peace Walker.”

    Sorry for giving someone an essay but I can’t control the hype…

    • Gatsu

      Too bad I can’t read that :(. Hype is unstoppable!

      • JJBYACH

        I know right…

      • Chem

        this is the translation, i’ll do my best :

        ” its the same with the secondary missions, there are MANY . The missions procure content for many hours, some missions are better or “fresher” than others, but again, they are a key factor in the game. Many are relevant to the story, and we’ll have to do those to progress with the game story. But most of it are orientated to improve Mother Base attributes and stats, rescuing POW, officers and other specialist -S or A rank- and recruit them for our army. Also there are secondary missions -that must be played on survival mode or extreme mode, this is mandatory- and the duration of this missions are equivalent to the main missions, this are pretty hard to complete, and are unlocked when we complete the less importants secondary missions. Completing those while we progress through story at the same time, will help us to follow the exact same path how Peace Walker ended”

        • Gatsu

          Thanks :).

        • JJBYACH

          thanks so much.

          • Chem

            no problem bro

  • Gatsu

    Some info which don’t help us at all so I apologize, but street date has been broken by some big UK retailer -_-. It seems this is happening all over the world.

    Also if anyone is interested in the upcoming Hitman game, well it gets released with 7 missions first and more will be added later lol. I wonder why can’t they, you know, like finish the game before releasing it? I’m not gonna buy it anytime soon, but I don’t like this kind of stuff. Just thought of mentioning it :).

    • Joaquin Romero Victorica

      My friend got fucked up by UK retailer. The guy bought the collector edition 2 months ago and all the sudden by some technical issue of their website his pre order got canceled yesterday

      Fuck this guy’s. He lives in Argentina and now he had to buy the collector on eBay by double price

      • Gatsu

        Yea I read one N4G article, that said UK is cancelling some MGSV pre-orders. That’s not very nice >_<…

        • Joaquin Romero Victorica

          All for revenge XD

        • I swear I will rain fucken shit on eb games if they don’t have my CE on sep 1st.

      • Chem

        sorry to hear that bro

    • Danny Patten

      Hitman…if I’d buy it, I’d wait 1 year until the whole game is DLCd up and costs 200€

    • It does look good. I love the hitman games. But metal gear more obviously

      • Gatsu

        yeah they’re pretty good games, but I just hate this sort of work-in-progress releases or episodic stuff like with Resident Evil Revelations 2.

        • Yeah gone are the days of buying a whole game. Done and dusted. Now it’s all dlcs, betas, purchases. More dlcs. A sequel… With more dlcs and that had a beta. Then the third comes out on a new console. So you buy that. And the game. And more dlcs. Then you get a trilogy, with all the dlcs in one disc. On a different console again…. PlayStation….

  • Snake

    See you all on Set.1º

    • Gatsu

      Ahhh shit, everyone’s posting these pictures >__<… Well I guess it can't be helped when get TPP after years of waiting… But where the hell is mine!? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHH…

      Cya next month.

      • Every image of the game hurts. Only four days but damn…

        • Gatsu

          Aye, this is like some long torture scene. Every image give me painful electric shocks.

          Need to think of some way for time to go faster… I bought a guitar recently so might open up the box finally. Never had one before XD…

          I hope I dont break it, but at least should help pass the time O_O.

          • Haha yeah I’ve been concentrating on YouTube and work to forget for this week. Then wake up in front of eb games on Tuesday haha

      • Danny Patten

        1st Sept bro. Be ready!

      • JJBYACH

        You feel it too, don’t you… *atmospheric camera pan as PS4 controller slowly drops from hand*

  • Gatsu

    It seems MGI has gotten a bit more quiet ;D, when no new articles and most have gone hiding. I wonder if this place turn into a ghost town after September 1. I maybe try finish most of the game first before coming back, first I was planning to visit daily for spoilers but as the release dates are now the same, maybe I don’t have to as I’d prefer not to see them :P.

    At least I assume most will get TPP on the release day :).

    • Yeah I noticed. Funny when the final trailer came out. First view, came here and I couldn’t keep up with the comments. Haha. I’ll visit daily and talk to people. But I won’t reveal anything while I’m playing for at least a week or two in respects to other fans who don’t get it straight away.

      • Gatsu

        Hmmm, maybe I’ll visit too :). Going to miss all you D-Dog comrades if I dont 😀 haha.

        • well ill try my best. the excitement might take over haha.

    • clintonmeade40

      I’m still here, actually the one place I still feel comfortable coming to knowing I don’t have to see a spoiler

      • Gatsu

        Ok good ;). Yesterday there was one outsider who dropped few spoil images, but didnt take long for him to get banned.

    • Chem

      i’ll be here every day, since i’ll be able only to play at night because of my work, so i’ll be sharing my impressions here in day time (no spoilers off course)

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      ill have my browser open with mgi, facebook, youtube, and probably vice news all ready for my short breaks between mgsv sessions. Im trying to convince my boss they dont need me tuesday night so i can just play from 11pm Monday to mid day Tuesday, pass out, and do it all again.

    Well guys time to share with you my simple metal gear solid tattoo. This franchise make me the man I’m today and it will be with me my entire life.

  • JJBYACH

    As someone who has a great interest in art literature: especially in games – this was one of the fucking greatest things I’ve ever read:

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/08/27/metal-gear-solid-v-preview/

    • Agreed 100%, very nice read. And no spoilers, just in case anyone wants to know 😀

  • H’m
    • Gatsu

      This was really well done :D, awesome! It shows how many of us felt.

      Btw I love Interstellar <3.

      • H’m

        i for one like the dramatic and heartfelt music used in games, eg way to fall at the end of mgs3 OMG FULL-ON MAN TEARS… but this song used in the new trailer is to much

    • jack_coban

      Dude, I love it! 😀 Very well done. And yeah, Interstellar is a pretty fantastic movie. Maybe Nolan and Kojima’ll get coffee some time.

    • MrVux007

      “Allright,Allright,Allright”

  • Gatsu

    Tomorrow ;O oh wow… I bet when it’s the last day of waiting for me I can’t contain my feelings anymore XD.

    Not sure about the chatting area, I’m just on guard duty here 🙂 but Nyxus is the one who can make things like that happen I’d guess. But on the upper side of this page there’s the MGI-Forums, and from there maybe can find a discussion thread. But it’s good idea to ask the admins there if can do own discussion for them or if can use the current ones 🙂

    • JJBYACH

      Of course Polygon had to bring the SWJ parade in on Quiet, but surprisingly they didn’t crucify the game for it, like they did for Witcher 3.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        If a man puts a woman in skimpy clothing, its sexist, when a woman wears skimpy clothing, its empowering. Fuck’em

        • JJBYACH

          Yeah, well I don’t wanna bring any of the SWJ crap to here as no one really wins those arguments but the logic of some of these people confuse me at times.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            I heard it explained best as social brownie points. Basically you show everyone how politicaly correct you are by choosing to believe in something that otherwise wouldnt matter to you. also its SJW for social justice warrior

      • muaddib

        >implying we won’t feel ashamed of our words and deeds

        • JJBYACH

          Sadly, i read a review that completely spoiled the reason why Quiet dresses the way she does – and yeah…

    Maybe in the future games should be released 1 month later in Middle East, as evil as that might sound. Because it get released earlier again anyway. People should learn to have more patience and wait (although Im dying here), instead of going bribing some small retailer.

    I hope this one will connect to my game on ps3 because I had issues where the one for GZ wouldn’t.
