From the website:

The AOJI Gallery unveils three new artworks drawn by Yôji Shinkawa joining the official artworks collection dedicated to the legendary universe of Metal Gear Solid, few days before the launch of the next opus.

Named as  “V, by Yôji Shinkawa” and “Diamond Dogs, by Yôji Shinkawa”, two out of three new art editions are issued from the Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain and depicts two of the already legendary characters: Big Boss and Quiet. Note that “V, by Yôji Shinkawa” is only available in Extra-large size (92x100cm) and 10 units solely.

The third original creation was selected on a special guideline: express the pure essence of the Metal Gear Series through the eyes of the one and only artistic director of the franchise… “REX Yôji by Shinkawa”.

In partnership with Konami Digital Entertainement, the Metal Gear Solid Artwork Collection includes creations from 1998’s ‘Metal Gear Solid’ up to ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ (2015). This series of 10 high-end numbered editions, with Certificate of Authenticity pays tribute to the most famous stealth-action game created by Mr Hideo Kojima, with the artistic impulse of Yôji Shinkawa.

    How much are these? :O

  • Daburcor

    I hope all three of those make it into the art section of the collector’s strategy guide.

  • Gatsu

    Gotta love that art 🙂

  • Badass. Ah yes it is Rex I was gonna say

  • MichaelPayneV
    • Chris Estevez

      Big Boss be like:

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      sigh *unzips*

    • Daburcor

      That made me snort. LOUDLY.

    What about you, do you remember that punch?

    • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

      Jebus Boss.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Snake be like: That’s my boy…1 of them at least.

  • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

    The framerate on Xbox 360 is 20FPS during the day time and it has a constant stutter. It can reach 30FPS at night. Motherbase is very choppy with screen tearing. Get it on current gen.

    • gerber

      That’s what I was afraid off I have also seen a ps3 motherbase and it looked bad FPS-wise, but it is was recorded with a phone so I was not sure…

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        Believe me it’s bad. I gonna wait for either my Steam purchase to unlock or Monday for the PS4 collectors edition to show up.

        DON’T LET ANYONE RUIN THE FIRST HOUR OF THE GAME FOR YOU. It’s just incredible. Best opening to a game EVER!

        • MattSmoke

          that’s bad news. I wanted to buy tpp for ps3, but looking at ground zeros it was horrible, almost unplayable with the antialiasing nad framerate. I hoped that they would improve TPP for PS3 to the max but well…. dont have money for ps4 and im not even gonna talk about my pc… That means im propably watch a walkthrough on youtube ;(

          • gerber

            I’m in the same situation but I guess I’ll play that way anyway

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The game looks amazing on last gen. The framerate is just too inconsistent. It ruins it.

          • gerber

            So during daytime, is that much worse than GZ?

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            It looks WAY better then ground zeroes. Hardly any large stepping (Aliasing). But the stuttering is criminal. Especially on D Horse. I don’t even want to play it. I’ll wait till Sunday or Monday for the superior releases.

          • gerber

            I mean framerate, that’s all I care about. GZ graphics were good enough for me, but what graphics matter when it’s unplayable :/

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            It stutters and hitches down on top of the already shit framerate.

        • willworkfortoys

          Does the opening take an hour? I’m wandering if I can convince my wife to sit with me and at least watch the opening but after she sat by me and watched the shooting of countless kerotin frogs in MGS3 I think she decided she’d just leave me to my games….alone.

          • gerber

            Well you have better chance here, my brother who hates MGS loved watching me play Ground Zeroes, he said it was like watching a movie

          • I heard it takes at least an hour/hour half. Which is good.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The first hour will have you both on the edge of your seats. Especially if you have watched the previous trailers. You will know what I mean when you see this mindfuck.

          • I remember reading ages ago that snake has like 100 bodies in him. Like teeth and shit. And the shrapnel in his skull. I hope we see them and how it affects him later in the game.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Fight the temptation to watch it on Youtube. It will not have the same impact as playing it.

          • willworkfortoys

            Yeah, I’m saving everything non-gameplay related, i.e. cutscenes for the game at this point. The wait…

        • Gatsu

          Don’t worry I wont let anyone ruin it for me or they will be sent straight to hell. Its what I’ve hyped perhaps the most during this waiting…

          Can’t wait to experience it in just few days :).
          P.S. there might be some who can only get it for older platforms.

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Can you add me to your group list?

          • Gatsu

            Sure I can. 🙂

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I will be playing mostly on Steam. So do I add my Steam name to the list?

          • Gatsu

            If you want or can drop it here too :).

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            My Steam name Electric Gigolo. XD

          • Gatsu

            😀 pretty cool name

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Thx.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Hmmm,,Mr. Sexy Vampire’s cousin?

          • Robin Besch

            not bad…

        • Gatsu

          I’ve played quite a few games with not so good fps and it hasn’t always bothered me. But I guess everyone think of it differently when see it. Of course when play TPP wanna have the most enjoyable experience, but hopefully it don’t bother everyone who play on older platforms :).

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            A sub 30FPS framerate can be playable in some games. It’s the choppy stuttering and hitching that really ruins TPP. Framerate drops more when enemies close in and surround you. If I had a choice I would avoid the last gen release like the plague.

          • FZJanimated

            well im kinda used to bad framerate ,i mean ps3 had the most shitty ports in their first years… i remember playing gta 4 with a really bad frame rate (12-20 and rarely 30 ) i finished that game , but didnt enjoyed much the last mission because of the bad draw distance.
            then bayonetta that while kinda runs well to 30fps ,sometimes the game drops to 15-20 , bud overall works well.
            then…my pc cant handle good graphics ,but i beat far cry 3 (fps around 10-20 ) , so i dont know i think is not going to be a problem for me the bad fps lol

    • Shalashaska

      Are you kidding me man ? How the hell do you know that ?
      I cant believe i took a loan from a friend to buy a second hand xbox 360 after mine went to hell. shit man .. please tell me this is a joke..

      • MrVux007

        I wouldnt trust internet rumors,especially without any proper proof…its probably BS,but im sure DigitalFoundry will show the truth soon enough…
        also a friend of mine told me the following (he got it early on 360 and its SPOILER FREE)
        so moral of the story “check it for yourself”

      • MrVux007

        I wouldnt trust internet rumors,especially without any proper proof…its probably BS,but im sure DigitalFoundry will show the truth soon enough…
        also a friend of mine told me the following (he got it early on 360 and its SPOILER FREE)
        so moral of the story “check it for yourself” ….

        • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

          “It ran like a dream on 360”? LOL! That guy that commented is a fucking troll.

          • MrVux007

            he is a close friend of mine…and you however are keen to make statements that are not viable to the subject at hand 🙂

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            He is lying to you. I have been on this site for months. Why would I make shit like that up?
            The game is fine on Xbox 360. Very pretty for last gen. You just need to accept that the framerate is poor.

          • MrVux007

            first weather or not he is lying is not up to you to decide,i trust him,thats what matter to me…i made a couple of discussions with you,and you have an bad habbit of either making things up or entirely diverting to other subjects,so no,i dont belive you….
            weather or not the framerate is poor (cuz you stated its almost a constant 20FPS) DigitalFoundry a group of profesionals will determine that and that is whom i trust…

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Whatever! I really don’t care. I have the game and the framerate is poor. I’m playing the missions at night time cause the framerate is better. Digital Foundry will expose it. Don’t come back crying when they do.

          • MrVux007

            so if digitalfoundry states that the game runs generaly pretty well at 30FPS (with few FPS drops in demanding scenes ofc) opposed to your “constant 20FPS”,what will you state then?
            and if you have the game mind sending me to my email a non-spoiler gameplay on Xbox360? hell even if you send me a picture with your xbox360 and the game,that would be something…
            until then ill stick to more trustworthy sources 🙂

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            I’m sending you NOTHING! I don’t like your attitude. You obviously REALLY want it to be not true. Don’t worry you’ll find out soon.

          • MrVux007

            ” I don’t like your attitude.” i dont like liars
            “You obviously REALLY want it to be not true.” nah i just like sticking to more reliable sources or towards factual way of thinking
            ” Don’t worry you’ll find out soon.” cant wait :3

            and remember what you stated”is 20FPS during the day time and it has a constant stutter.”

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            “Despite the anomalous stress-points above, frame-rate purists will be
            pleased with Kojima’s fifth main entry in the Metal Gear Solid line –
            provided you stick to current-gen consoles. The Phantom Pain is a very
            taxing game, and in terms of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the older
            hardware is pushed right to its limits and sometimes the experience can
            feel rather strained.” – Digital Foundry

          • MrVux007

            continue ” We’re playing both of these versions in tandem right now and aim to bring you first impressions as soon as we can.”

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            Good night.

          • MrVux007

            sorry this still proves nothing to me mate,especially if i dont know if this from someone else AND most importantly doesnt prove the “constant 20 fps with stutters” during the daytime gameplay…
            but since im a good mood i will give you the benefit of doubt 🙂

          • MrVux007

            “20FPS during the day time and it has a constant stutter.” the game runs in between 25FPS-30FPS during gameplay (daytime)

      • MrVux007

        also here is his response to this comment
        the guy is a rly close friend of mine and i trust him

        • Shalashaska

          Shit dude thats a relief.. i really hope this game works well.. I have trust in kojima but the possibility of it thanks to Konami.. :/

          • MrVux007

            DigitalFoundry will make an analysis in next 48 hours…from the looks of it they truly pushed the last gen to its limits (in a good way)

          • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

            The framerate is terrible. Believe me when I tell you it’s not 30fps during the day time.

          • Shalashaska

            I know what its like 😛

      • MichaelPayneV

        Told you to save money for a Personal Computer instead (apparently Vux hates the word PC, and wil allways attack me when i say it, i bet he is already writing a long respons to this simple comment)

        • MrVux007

          i love my PC,but i also respect other peoples choices…
          unlike you….

          edit:i hate PC elitist,aswell as console elitist…

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s where you’re wrong, or where i come off as a jackass because of my poor english gramar.

          • MrVux007

            Not my problem mate….
            either speak you what you mean to say properly or dont speak at all
            but i think you know your grammar pretty darn good,and as such i understood you quite well … 🙂

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, i guess words can kill indeed!

          • MrVux007

            that would depend on which context 😉

        • Shalashaska

          Man, i dont have such money.. I can barely eat in a month.. I used every penny i had for the xbox.. shit man.. I cant believe this.. i have 60 remaining for the game but dammit whats the point of that if the game runs like shit..

          How can kojima do such a thing.. thats such crap.. the perfectionist makes such crap.. how.. the hell man..
          Wasnt this game started for the last gen.. WTH :/

          Such a news bums me out even when i dont want to believe it… after years of waiting.. :/

      • ShalashaskaWasHerSon

        No joke.

    • MrVux007

      Funny,a friend of mine who got it on Xbox360 told me its constant 30 … unless you have some footage to back it up?

  • Leviathan

    anyone from germany got a shipping mail from gamestop? (CE)

    • RocketoPunch

      No, but I ordered from “Saturn” and they didn´t ship it today.
      Some People who ordered the game from “Spielegrotte” got this message:
      “Aufgrund eines Logistikfehlers von Konami Versand erst am Montag”
      Hope the delay doesn´t count for every store in Germany.

      • Ishmael

        Ich war vorhin bei Gamestop in Halle/Saale. Zuerst meinte die Verkäuferin auf meine Anfrage das Spiel sei bereits da. Dann kam ein 2. Verkäufer und meinte es käme erst morgen. Ich habe gefragt ob ich es dann morgen abholen kann und er weigerte sich. Dann hab ich ihn gefragt wenn ich dir einen Beweis zeigen kann dass das Spiel bereits verkauft wird, bekomme ich es dann? Und er antwortete mit ja. Einen Beleg dass das Spiel zb in Thüringen bereits verkauft wird habe ich, siehe hier http://forum.trophies-ps3.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=18653&d=1440761520

        • RocketoPunch

          hmmm danke für die Info! Saturn hat auch gerade geschrieben, dass angeblich alles nach Plan verlaufe und wir von etwaigen Fehlern der Produktion nicht betroffen sind. hoffe, dass es stimmt.

        • Leviathan

          mhm Gamestop meinte zu mir (via Kundencenter) dass das Spiel heute auf jeden Fall noch versendet wird … bis jetzt 18:38 keine Nachricht …

    • cytiene

      I ordered the CE from gamestop but so far no e-mail…

  • willworkfortoys

    Does Shinkawa have any physical works and has anyone seen them in person by chance or does everything of his that gets released go through the digital machine? I’d love to see some physical pen and inks but I’m sure that’s an impossibility in terms of logistics.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Hey random question for you guys. I bought the digital copy of mgsv from the psn store and the physical collectors edition. They both come with pre order bonuses. Im going to install the digital copy first because i wont have the disc copy on day one. So question is will installing and playing the digital copy first somehow mess up being abel to use the pre order bonuses that come with the physical disc copy since i;ll be useing and installing that later? Sorry i kno this might be a confuseing question.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Advice: Make a New Account for the physical version.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Good idea thank you. Play it safe

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          No bonus content is on the disk, it has codes, those codes cannot interfere with one another

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Thank you Fox

    • I’ve never used a digital then physical version of a game. But I would assume it would work together like one game and two discs only the save would count. The codes I guess would be the similar. The CE you’d get extra so I guess you’ll end up with duplicates of a couple in The End. If so just sleep for a week and see if he dies…..

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Hey thanks. Yea iv thought about all of that to but it would really suck if i couldent use the ce bonus content because i installed the digital copy first lol.

        • Machine Gun Kid

          I was going to install the digital copy then when i get the ce copy i was going to uninstall the digital copy, install the physical copy then use the codes for the physical copy content. <<<<<<<That was the plan but im not sure now lol

      • DV87

        I had already purchased the Physical Day 1 edition, but i recently bought the digital edition too. Not because I care about stupid DLC, but because I simply MUST play this game ASAP! 75$ down the drain for having to wait 9 hours less? It’s worth it for this game!

    • Daburcor

      Unless Konami has some sort of proprietary thing that makes it so you have to use digital pre-order items with digital pre-order copies only, you will be fine. I have bought digital copies of games numerous times in the past (for the same reason you have) and been able to use the pre-order/other bonuses between the digital and physical copies as I saw fit.

      [EDIT] Out of curiosity, on what platform will you be playing?

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Oh hey. Thank you for your input. Thats good to kno. I’ll be playing it on ps4. You?

        • Daburcor

          Sure thing! And I will be playing on PS4 as well. I asked what you were playing on because I have done as I said on PS4. So, I’m certain you will be fine!

    • Someone asked this at the bootcamp, they said both have separate dlc and you can redeem them both.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Hey Crim. Lol yea i read the article on here featureing you at the bootcamp. That was awsome. OK so thats what they said about it? Cool, i should be alright then. Thanks bro

  • JJBYACH

    Shinkawa’s art is just perfect. I can just imagine Kojima packing him in a box and carrying it with him as he leaves Konami.

    • gerber

      I will never understand why they stopped doing Shinkawa’s covers. The CGI one are so generic

  • Chem

    the art of Yoji is incredible, and one thing that really impress me is that he make these drawings so quick, he make it look so easy when is not easy at all, i saw a video on Youtube of him drawing in a convention i think, he made a full canvas of Big Boss in like 5 minutes.

  • Gatsu

    I noticed a new poll :O!

    By the way, before everyone of us MGI-Diamond Doggys goes separate ways towards Afghanistan, I wanna thank you all for keeping this community so fantastic during the years :). It has been fun and best because of us all, love you comrades. (I’m not going anywhere yet for couple days though, loyal to the end lol.)

    Also thanks to my awesome brothers in arms-mods crimsonfox and Golgari for helping keep things peaceful and enjoyable in our Outer Heaven ;D.

    And for last big thanks to our Biggest Boss Nyxus for the insane amount of work with delivering amazing news while waiting for our masterpiece, I wouldn’t have survived this far without you <3!

    3 years have gone pretty fast now when think about it…and can't believe we get to play the best game ever in just few days . Soon this torture is over… Hopefully most of us stay in touch and share experiences afterwards ;)! If some still haven’t joined the Steam group and want to, you can let me or other members know.

    Anyway…not trying to make this too long, it has been a pleasure chatting <(ToT). I salute you all!

        • vic boss

          True I haven’t seen LOTR in a long time , I think I might watch them tho, the extended ones. I haven’t seen the last one from the hobbit, battle of five armies, is it good?

      I’m happy to have found all of you awesome people.
      I believe my fellow Diamond Dogs here to be the most polite, respectful, and professional people I have ever had the pleasure to have met online.

      Do you guys think it’s because Kojima and the Metal Gear series has taught us to try and be better human beings?
      All I know is no other game has given me as much enjoyment, emotional feelings, and life lessons like MG has.
      I mean look at all the douchebags you run into playing COD or GTA, not so with MGS!
      I salute you all my friends!

      • glitchbomb

        I actually thought that too, but there are other mgs communities that are nowhere near as helpful while still providing a good environment for fans.

      WE NEED IT ;O !

      Seriously the only place I visit mostly now is MGI and youtube for some trailers maybe, but I try my best to avoid watching/reading everything else.

    Thanks for that Shinkawa, already printed. Looks great.

    Anyone else just get this in the mail? Quality is nice.

    • Machine Gun Kid

      How did you get this? i dont understand lol

      Yeah, quality is fine, but it says Snake Eater is set a year after Virtuous Mission, and it drives me mad.

    Anybody check Kojima’s twitter recently. Everyone seems to adamant that “V has come to”. I assume it’ll be a mega plot twist that we’ll find out when we play. I could only imagine what Kojima is thinking every time he retweets one of them:

    • MichaelPayneV

      You will find out what V has come to means when you play it, that’s all i’ll say!

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        V for Vengeance Spoilers .

        • MichaelPayneV

          Is not really a spoiler, but i won’t say it either.

      • RecasasX

        It’ll go down like this

        • Cobra Commander

          I always loved that Family Guy bit!
          I also like the one where it says that the most famous actor in the opening credits of a mystery/crime show is usually the bad guy or the one who committed the crime.

          I have always thought about that!
          Now when I watch Law and Order SVU or something similar, I close my eyes during the opening credits, lol!

          • ddmaster

            Like the one where he keeps thinking the movie is about to start but it’s actually the production company’s logo playing out on the screen.

    • Hussain Alkhalaqi

      I thought the same but I still made him a funny pic that he retweeted x)

  • Nobody knows my identity

    Does someone know who it am ?

            I was banned for no reason but it’s good Carlos is doing everything to secure our heaven and hell!OUTE RHEAVEN!

          • Gatsu

            You were banned because you didnt follow the rules, instead kept talking about spoilers. im not sure should I let you come back here.

          • Ishmael

            ban him again. he deserves it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “Put him in the Cell…keep an eye on him, don’t ban him, he may have to do it, but now is not the time!”

          • kirtanloorii

            When the time comes…

          • MichaelPayneV

            …i’ll pull the trigger…wait, i’m not a MOD, DAMN IT!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Aren’t you the guy who drowned quiet?

  • Nobody knows my identity

    V HAS COME TO!

  • Nobody knows my identity

    The fans were tricked and now they will be deceived and their tears will be all over their home !

    • kirtanloorii

      I take it someone spoiled the ending for you?

      • Nobody knows my identity

        Metalgearwikia did !

        • kirtanloorii

          Ok, well don’t tell, lol.

          • Nobody knows my identity

            I won’t but !

          • Nobody knows my identity

            It has a great chance of being fake though I’m sure real fans will cry during tpp

  • MrVux007

    Im pleased to share that Digital Foundry made performance analysis for current gen consoles!
    And great news for XboxOne users…boy did they made improvements on that platform!

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-hands-on-with-metal-gear-solid-5

    For last gen users …expect performance analysis on PS3 and Xbox360 within next 48 hours…from their comments,they said that MGSV is trully the game that utilized the last gen platforms as best as possible and Koji pro done it beautifully

    • Nobody knows my identity

      That’s pretty good news for people who want to buy this along with future exclusives like crackdown and scalebound!

    • MichaelPayneV

      So is not a constand 60fps for the PS4 and X1 either? And you say why i recomend the PC version.

      • MrVux007

        err what are you talking about ?
        If you cant read the article right,it your problem….dips are on all versions of the game,including the pc…if you call 1 second FPS drop from 60-59 not a constant 60 FPS then we have nothing to talk about
        also it happend that the FPS dropped to 30-48 FPS in some cutscenes that lasted rly short…
        if you think that the PC version wont have those issues pre-patch you are dead wrong 😀

        • Nobody knows my identity

          Calm down fdp ocelot! Fucking calm down ? Jesus ! The moment I got banned and you start fighting again when I come back to apologize to crimson fix

          • MrVux007

            im calm?
            and please dont compare your behaviour with mine…
            complete difference,you were banned for good reason mate

          • MichaelPayneV

            Ohhh, shots fired.

          • Nobody knows my identity

            F re up that loud! another round of shots !

          • MichaelPayneV

            Facepalm: It was an expression.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Well if you have 16GB or Ram, i7 and 3 Titans, you will NEVER drop bellow 60fps…at least you shouldn’t!

          • MrVux007

            in that case…if i was rich,i would never work,smoke weed everyday,would buy hundreds and hundreds of vilas all around the world,spend my time on my 100 million euro yacht …etc etc

            oh and even with that HW….dips will happen and you wont even notice them

          • MichaelPayneV

            Not really, i have 16Gigs, GTX 970, i5, and i’m just a Bartender!

            2. If the optimizaion is Ass, yes, it will dip even on 3 GPU’s

          • MrVux007

            errr you mentioned 3 titans 😀 ? not GTX 970
            even in good optimization,the game will dip,its completely normal if it drops 1 FPS for brief second lol

          • MichaelPayneV

            My point was that you don’t have to be ritch to have a high end PC, you just have to save money for one, and most of all to have plans for future with that PC for more than Gaming, like Twitch Streaming, Movie/Music Making etc.

          • MrVux007

            your build IS affordable!
            But IN YOUR ORIGINAL STATEMENT you mentioned 3 TITAN-X in your PC with i7
            only the graphics cards will cost you 3000 $ let alone the other parts plus the monitor
            pls check your comment lol

    • FZJanimated

      well i cant afford a good pc or ps4 ,so im expecting the ps3 version to work fine… i mean sandbox or big open world games dont work well in ps3 … i mean it was a nightmare to play gta 4 in ps3 ,i dont know about gta 5 though ,i didnt play it.
      i hope at least the frames stay between 20-30

      • MrVux007

        worst case scenario?
        You can expect FPS drops from 30 to 25 FPS in RLY demanding sequences if we are to look at Ground zeroes…but from what a friend of mine told me,FPS on Xbox360 is almost constant 30 FPS

        • FZJanimated

          25-30? that is not that bad xD ,at least is not going to be a gta 4 nightmare ,i dont know how i beat that game with the poor performance ,hell i remember the last mission and trying to avoid the attack from the helicopter with a really bad frame rate (12-20) and because of the poor draw distance i couldnt see the missils until they hit me lol.

          • MrVux007

            GTA4? that game was terribly optimized on consoles and especially on PC at launch..thankfully the performance was better with patching

          • FZJanimated

            the good thing in PC you have alot of mods and a active community that can fix those problems ,but in ps3 even with 5-10 patches ,the game still works like shit :/

          • MrVux007

            as far as i remember GTA4 was fine after the patching,but then again i played that game long time ago…..
            I gave up console version tho as most of my friends played it on PC at the time…

          • FZJanimated

            i think the last time i played the game was in 2013 ,so no idea if they released another patch ,but at least for me the game didnt work well.

          • MrVux007

            idk mate…the game was fine according to DigitalFoundry http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-what-gta4-did-for-us

    • Tong Ninja

      Thanks! 😀

      Can you link the performance analysis for current generation consoles here on this site once it’s out??
      Don’t worry, I’ll usually scroll through the comments every day so I’ll be able to find it. 🙂

      • MrVux007

      What the shit! Mission 6 or hospital atleast I will have the chance to watch a scene I wanted replay and replay again!

    • I cant stand greg miller sorry. hes such a ………………………….not mentionable over M language

      • GreyFox

        I agree.. this guy is such a idiot.

        • He’s like… “Look at me I’m so camp that I can ruin every gameplay I do on any game and make everyone around me so awkward that the audience ends up going to their channel for the same gameplay without me and it had more views.”
          Fuck that c*******

          • Danny Patten

            We are soulmates man…Greg Miller sure is unnecessary!

          • GreyFox

            Hahaha you nailed it!

      • Arestras

        I’ll just say they should have used Greg Miller for Kaz Motion Capture in TPP… if you know what I mean.

    • I’ll just delete them before I get into trouble…

  • I have a feeling by BB’s expression that this is when Kaz messes up and Ocelot tells him… “Kaz was apart of cipher this whole time…” remember PW….

    • MichaelPayneV

      Or when he is looking at the Fake Big Boss, the one working for Cipher, and making sure that “The whole world wants you dead”, hence the “Big Boss is watching you” poster!

      • No no no no no. There’s only one BB IM SICK OF THAT THEORY. But my theory is already in the story and makes complete sense.
        By story I mean previous games

        • MichaelPayneV

          MY theory is not that theory, my theory is that we are playing as Big Boss, is just that Cipher is using Solidus to damage Big Boss image!

          • Oh wait my message came of wrong lol. I ment I’m sick of the two Big Bosses theory lol.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, Solidus is not Big Boss, so my theory is two Snakes in MGSV, actually 4 Snakes, Eli and David!

  • Nobody knows my identity

            It’s about q…..

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s she is a great actress? That’s not a Spoiler, that’s just me giving my oppinion on Stefanie Joosten acting abilities!

          • Nobody knows my identity

            I agree with you . Peace bro peace !

          • MichaelPayneV

            V has come to!

          • Fuck I just missed all that and why … I watched the last two trailers repeatedly for hours..

          • Nobody knows my identity

            But you could have used Charlize Theron as an example instead of cara delavigne and her acting was the only thing that made me watch Snow White and the huntsman

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s because Charlie Theron is a long career actress, while Cara is a Model turned actress, which fits the comparison with Joosten, Charlie just wouldn’t fit tough!

            And you were right the graphics in the hospital part are fucking photorealistic on ps4

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s not a spoiler, i could show screens from the part that we already saw in 2013 from the Hospital section for comparison of Graphics and FOX, and that’s not a spoiler at all, what you did whoever was spoil the tone of the Hospital section!

          • Nobody knows my identity

            Just talking about one scene doesn’t not spoil an awesome game level which is the best intro ever !

          • MichaelPayneV

            To some it does, which is why i’m alsways thinking twice about what i say and how i say about what i saw, and make sure that in the worst case scenario i raise the hype and improve the experience!

    • Gatsu

      i can try whitelisting you if you promise to behave, and stop talking about seeing spoilers everywhere while trying to sound vague about them. Don’t do it because some can still understand what you mean…

      • MichaelPayneV

        Wait, does that mean that i’m in danger as well?

        • Gatsu

          It goes for everyone. I’m sorry if it sounds cold, but I aint gonna let my TPP get ruined because of some comments and when so close to release date.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, no, am i in danger now, i mean have i already done something that may get me banned?

            i feel for everyone who dont know goodfellas

    • Gatsu

      I know you cant reply, but we let you know if can return. Also after TPP is released can maybe talk about unseen scenes of the game more, but not before we had even chance to play it…

      We had a reason to ban you in the first place Le Guy.

            Well i look at it this way, as im a fairly new guy here still and have never really got into the whole community thing (other than abit of commenting on ign and youtube were most people are just dicks ) an everybody here is just…. cool, so i will support this site, community in anyway i can.. SPOILER FREE! 🙂

    don’t talk about SPOILERS

    Attitudes are flaring now that we are so close to launch. Maybe we all need a break after the game comes out. lol

    • VenomSnake123

      True, lol

    • MrVux007

      Couldn’t agree more….

    • H’m

      i wasnt here for what ever happened earlier but..no i dont think attitudes are flaring, well unless you mean at..the troll assholes that are obviously trying to spoil mgs 5 🙂

    • JJBYACH

      It’s just that time. The hype is already traveling at its terminal velocity, and people are getting defensive or even aggressive when derailment of the hype train is on the table, due to a bunch of dicks trying to spoil everything.

      • MrVux007

        i rly dont understand those folk…
        what do they think they will achieve by directly-indirectly revealing spoilers
        thats plain on cruel … ; /

    • Danny Patten

      yeah have to agree, MGI gets close to unbearable now. Such drama queens and no one knows when to shut up. Was fun while it lasted.

      • kirtanloorii

        Well, for the longest time (months or even years) it was just fine. Everything went to hell after the guide and the game itself broke street date. Almost everyone I talk to (it seems) has the game. That stresses me out. Then there are the twitch streamers. I know to avoid that, but my biggest concern for the longest time has been the “SURPRISE!” comments. I feel like I know way more than I should, but I can’t just leave because the MGS community are just about the only people I talk to.

      • H’m

        Keep the faith my friend… the gatsu with destroy all that try to ruin it for any of us 🙂

    Hey everyone, I just finished my (big band) jazz cover of Theme Of Tara from the first Metal Gear. I made it to celebrate Kojima’s final MGS! (Kojima had the idea for Theme Of Tara) Plus when I made my E3 video I forgot to put Metal Gear in there which was a sin! (Sin of the father? ¬_¬)

    Let me know what you think please?

    • Tong Ninja

      Pretty good! 😀

      • Edward Wokhands

        Danke!

    • JJBYACH

      Grey Fox confirmed?

      • How so

        • JJBYACH

          Uh, how not? Michael Fassbender posing and looks like BB in all promo art, coincidence? Michael Fassbender has grey face paint – what colour is Grey Fox? Coincidence? I think not.

          The ruse parade continues….

            was waiting for this haha

          • MichaelPayneV

            Fassbender is also going to be in the Assassin’s Creed Movie Directed by the same guy who Directed Macbeth, nothing to do with Metal Gear!

        Is Gray Fox!

    Hey moderators or anyone else, I have a few questions about MGSV: TPP if you don’t mind answering (if you can):

    1. Have they released any new information on how to transfer the GZ save files to TPP to get the cool bonuses??
    I’ve 100% completed GZ and rescued all the required personnel/recruits as well. 😀

    2. Regarding the buddies, have they confirmed that if they can die in battle?? or when they are close to dying, they will be automatically fultoned out by Kaz (so they can not die at all, only get injured)?

    3. Regarding the cutscenes for TPP … will you be able to encounter them all? or will some be missable?

    Because I read some of the reviews/impressions, and they said if you put in a lot of effort in the Mother Base section of the game (eg. visiting it regularly, management, talking/ hanging out with recruits/main cast, etc), you will find that a lot of drama and story (cutscenes) unfolds on Mother Base (like a tv show)! so some cutscenes are activated on certain conditions maybe … haha
    Is it the same case with exploring the open world as well?

    Thanks in advance! 😀 😀

    • Gatsu

      Don’t have much time but I dunno about 1st question. Or don’t remember lol

      2. I think they can die, but can also be fultoned few times or more. Crimson maybe know better if he can answer.

      3.I think some will be missable, because if you don’t visit for example MB so often, might miss some cutscene which would happen there. It could also work in open world areas too. Not 100% sure. I suggest playing slowly and doing everything ;), to see it all.

        Thanks! 😀

        Yeah, that’s what I was thinking … because I read that there are a lot of Kojima/Metal Gear Humour moments as well as drama in the cutscenes that occur on Mother Base and out in the field. But they activate on certain conditions such as visiting the base often. 🙂

      Here, take this article, it tells some things, that I didn’t even consider doing before.

        Yeah, I have already rescued all of them! 😀

    • 1. Your GZ save data option shows up on the main menu. It’s a very easy process.

      • Tong Ninja

        Awesome. Thanks! 😀

    For some reason, I feel like I’m one of the few people here who hasn’t been spoiled … haha

    • The Reaver

      I haven’t either, and I don’t expect to be within the next few days. It feels good to get this far without spoilers.

      • Gatsu

        Indeed, it feel like a miracle to get this far.

    • Gatsu

      I have only seen few things here and in twitch stream pic. Mostly of the beginning. Which isn’t much but hard to forget.

      Wrath will come upon those who try show more :)…

    • Lewis

      Same here. Not a single spoiler. But someone tried to spoil me Until Dawn. Closed the browser the second I realised what was going on. It said who the maniac was, but I don’t really know, if it is right. Gotta wait a while before playing. Thankfully, TPP will help me. 🙂

    • Awesome! That’s the plan ( ‘ ‘ )7

    • vic boss

      Me too bro, although I saw a picture on Facebook from the moment snake gets the arm , but It wasnt that big deal so I don’t mind.

    • Ishmael

      haven’t also been spoiled yet 🙂

    • No Place For Hayter

      I know right? but don’t worry I’m not spoiled yet either, though I do have to stay to MGI ONLY. Have to be careful considering that even a single sentence has the power to ruin the whole story, lol.

    • Robin Besch

      yeah i somehow managed too but i only visit MGI since a few weeks now and i usually dont click links

    • sam atkins

      I almost got spoiled reading a review from the Washington Post. Watch out for that one. I was reading along and then suddenly I was like “Shit okay exiting out!”

  • MichaelPayneV

    About to do my LAST Playthrough of Ground Zeroes before TPP, clean Save, save everyone i can save, and upload save!

    Wish me luck!

    • Tranq’d and extracted all the Omega Camp, turns out only POW’s have a real value (not entirely sure)… xD

  • MichaelPayneV

    HOLLY FUKK, Hideo just told me “That was perfect!”
    HE LOOKED AT ME, I’M GOING TO OUTER HEAVEN!!!

  • PsychoMantis18

    Does anyone know if that ‘V’ print limited to 10 units is sold out already?

    • Diamond Dog

      It is.

      • PsychoMantis18

        CUNT!
        Thankyou

  • Rob Machado
