Warning: do not use Quiet as a buddy for mission 29 and 42 [fixed]

Update: The issue has been fixed.

Orinal story:

Konami has issued a (temporary) solution for a certain glitch some players are experiencing in MGSV: The Phantom Pain. This glitch prevents the player from progressing past Mission 42 or 29. It happens when Quiet has been selected as a buddy, so the temporary solution is to simply not use her for Mission 29 or 42, for the time being.

The official announcement is as follows:

MGSV-TPP-Mission-42-Glitch

Update: More information regarding the glitch has been added.

MGSV-TPP-Mission-42-Glitch-Update

In addition, the official Metal Gear Twitter posted theΒ following:

An issue has been reported where the game will persist in a continuous loop on a black screen; the team is looking into cause & resolution.Β Until updated; please avoid playing missions 29 & 42 while using Quiet as your buddy, as this seems tied to the cause of the issue.

So until an official resolution has been made available, you have been warned!

    I’m on mission 28 now, so thanks for the heads up!

    • It doesn’t happen to everyone but better safe than sorry. πŸ˜‰

  • Romain Robin

    I just finished Mission 29 with Quiet…. Shut down my PS4 just after it, now I’m afraid to turn it on again :((((

      • Romain Robin

        All is good, nothing nefarious happenned when I turned on my PS4. I’m a lucky one, I could not have started the game again, I’m at like 60hours + into the game (and just ended Chapter 1).

    • You have to figure out if the black loop thing they talk about happens while playing 29 or if it happens after.
      In the first case, you are safe. Good luck !

    Can someone link me the darker version of the man who sold the world with a guiro by david bowie

      • Random sniper

        No the version that he performed at 1995 mtv just listened ! It’s horrible the original is better

        • Josh Houchin

          Ahh sorry my mistake. Now I want to hear the live one.

          • Random sniper

            Hear the. Version he performed during the 2000s not 1995 it’s horrible

  • Josh Houchin

    I finished Mission 29 with Quiet (not sure if I could have done it without her), and have progressed quite a bit further since then, so I must have gotten lucky.

    Didn’t affect me yet and I replayed pretty much every mission with any buddy and I’m not past mission 42

  • disqus_akxhHxzCx0

    They can fix Mission 51 maybe?

  • kirtanloorii

    Well, I just finished the story and watched the TRUE ending. I have to say that my faith in this game has been completely restored. The final 2 endings are way better the the ending to chapter 1.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      When chapter 1 ended… I was crushed! I actually thought it was the end of the game. Then the “Coming in Chapter 2” came up… Screamed in joy!

      • Y Jebai

        Me too!!!

    • Gatsu

      I think the ending was excellent :D, is it weird to think so? o_O

      • kirtanloorii

        The last 2 endings were great. Anything was better than that Chapter 1 ending.

        • Gatsu

          Aye Ch1 ending felt weird. Even though game had some content cute, this true ending felt nice imo. Kojima answered some questions I’ve had.

        • Y Jebai

          I agree. When Chapter 1 ended I was like “This is not how this can end! What the hell?” But I loved The Truth

    • No Place For Hayter

      That’s funny because I literally have the opposite opinion, lol. I found the second ending to be incredibly forced and poorly written, if Kojima wanted that outcome he could have made it a lot better without having over 10 stupid pointless things happen in a row which lead to it. And I found the last ending ruined the rest of the game and the rest of the series. Glad you liked it though, it is a real killjoy to hate the ending, as sudden and short as it is.

  • Ralexion

    Im glad they didnt keep Quiet about this.

    IM SO SORRY.

    Well, dunno about mission 29, dont remember if I did it with Quiet, im long past that and everything is okay. BUT now I have to remember to not use her in mission 42.

  • kirtanloorii

    Funny. I specifically remember seeing in the Elegia trailer that Quiet was featured in the cutscene for mission 29.

  • d horse all day. lmao for some reason D horse cracks me up sometimes. Must be his stance or something. I busted up laughing when I whistled for him and looked above me and he was on a tiny ledge with an expression and posture like “yea bro I’m here…”. Imagined him infiltrating where I had just been doing cqc with his hooves and had a gut busting laugh.

    • I guess he likes high places

      • lmao

      • Gatsu

        LOL

      • Boris Leal

        hahahahahahahahaha

      • based d horse

      • Solid PhoeniX

        While I play I always end up saying “Dammit D-Horse!”, Then I hear my wife saying from the other room “What is D-Horse doing this time?”

        • Hehe you must have a great wife. D-Horse is rebelling as always

    • glitchbomb

      Ahhhaha!
      As he passes by…
      Sup?

      • Hahaha D-Horse was like: ONWARD MY COMRADES, TODAY IS THE DAY WE TAKE DOWN BIG BOSS!

        D-Horse is actually commanding Zero

        • glitchbomb

          D: SPOILERZZZZ!! lol

    • Steven Michael Brown

      It is bad to the bone how when evading enemy you can be sprinting and call d horse and jump on and never stop sprinting

      • yea its badass to call him and be able to keep sprinting then easily hop on

  • Snake

    anyone now if i try use quiet on mission 29 and have the black scren can i roll back or turn off ps4 and back in to try againe?

  • AeroGre

    Raiden voice : Its a little too late for that

    • JJBYACH

      “It was never going to work out for me; it was raining the day I was born” – Cheesy as hell, but i love that line.

  • Golgari

    Really? OMG!

    I used Quiet for that 29 mission ALL THE TIME. Now, I’m afraid… for my save. Not to mention I replayed it with Quiet… Many times…

    But so far I’m ok. X_X

  • Gatsu

    Hmm I don’t exactly remember if I used her on those Missions, when I sometimes switch buddies :). But haven’t noticed any problems so maybe it don’t happen to everyone?

    Damn this game make me cry soooo many times…and it’s what I truly love about MGS <(^__^<).

    I just finished the story and I guess I belong to those who liked the ending. It was a lot different from what I expected to see during TPP waiting or when I started playing, but ultimately it felt it very satisfying ;). Also it make sense too imo if think about it. The deep meaning of it was brilliant. Watching the credits go I was like …. And that post-credit conversation wow.

    There are just few things I didn’t like in the game, but I tell them later. Thanks Kojima-san for your last masterpiece! Back to playing—>

    • Golgari

      I’m done with the game too. All missions complete.
      Btw, that ending… I will say that it’s not over. Something is not right, especially with that Sony’s decoder with that beep sound at the end.
      It has the same thing in the cassette tape in Ground Zeroes.

      something is NOT discovered yet… I’m sure of it.

      • Venom_Sina

        Right now they are talking about it at reddit.It’s not a bad read.Check it out if you have the time:(GAME RUINING SPOILERS)

        https://www.reddit.com/r/metalgearsolid/comments/3k1y2x/major_mgsv_spoilers_there_is_more_to_discover/

      • Gatsu

        There could be something more yeah :).

        • Danny Patten

          I can imagine that Konami pulls a TPP 2 stunt

          • Metal Gear Solid V-2: The Guns of Phantom Eating Ground?

          • Metal Gear Solid V: Out Of Budget
            Metal Gear Solid V-II: Back In Business

          • As long MGSV-II has even better gameplay and more story and was made by Kojima I’d buy it. My will is weak :(.

      • No Place For Hayter

        I have the same feeling that something is still left, but I’m pretty sure this feeling is simply coming from the fact that there is not much story in TPP and that I’m still waiting for more as I have a hard time believing that that is really all there is for the story.

    • Venom_Sina

      There are different opinions.You enjoyed the ending,but I hated it,and IMO that ending was so bad that I hated the whole game and I don’t want to go back and continue playing.
      I can’t communicate with this game.I think it’s a complete garbage,or even worse (I’ll say it again) COMPLETE BULLSHIT!!!Waited 3 years and they gave me this piece of shit.
      But good for you,at least you enjoyed it.That 3 years of waiting had a good ending for you.

      • Gatsu

        Sad to hear that it was destroyed because of ending :(, it never happen to me in games. I don’t see the point in hating a game you have waited for years or not wanting to play it despite how it ends, because there is no changing that. It’s what it is. Even ME3 ending wasn’t what 95% of fans expected, but it still is a damn fantastic game.

        I guess expectation are vastly different for everyone. I’m interested to hear everyone’s opinion, about what kind of ending they were expecting. I will share mine too later but not for now, when some still havent finished.

        • Venom_Sina

          Yeah,I’m not like that too.But MGS was different.I waited 3 years for this game,even pre-ordered that limited edition console (pre-ordering that console for me means 2 months of working,without spending a single penny),fought with everyone in my family for that said console,got the game for PS3 for the price of 1/3 of my monthly salary (games are really expensive here),played through the game,spending about 30 hours into the game and … the game was not the thing I expected.Why I did all of this?Cause I wanted to support KJP and Konami.But they gave me this.
          I’m really pissed off right now,cause I can’t cancel that pre-order and that thing will torture me till I die!!!
          Sorry about the long comment.

          • Gatsu

            No need to be sorry bro :). I spent much money too… The biggest thing that bother me is the cut content, which I REALLY wanted to see. But I wont go into details in case some dont wanna know. But no matter how much I would complain of it, it wont change a thing. Not gonna believe they would add them later.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah the cut content is really strange, as the story in the game is literally incomplete without it, as the game stands now, the story is incomplete, it is too big a plot thread to leave unexplored/answered.

          • Venom_Sina

            I think the whole game is incomplete,not just story!!!

          • No Place For Hayter

            There are two parts to the game, story and gameplay, while the story is incomplete the gameplay I don’t think is, I would call the gameplay under-utilized but not incomplete.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,I know.It was a joke!!!

            As you said the gameplay is good,but the story is incomplete,slow paced and poorly written.Also the story has nothing to say to the gamer.Since the story has nothing to offer,we got some cutscenes that aren’t something special like the past MGS games,and since we have a few cutscenes,I can’t understand the presence of Kiefer Sutherland!!!Before release,they really advertised that facial expression thing,but in the final game,Kiefer actually doesn’t have enough places to show that facial expression!!!I’m really confused!!!

          • Gatsu

            I think Kiefer/Big Boss shows the face a lot in the cutscenes we get :). Ooooh boy is this game getting nuked a lot now, I’m outta to take some cover –>

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,his performance is great.What I’m saying is they should’ve used his talent more,not in just a 2 minute cutscene.

          • JJBYACH

            *Sudden flashback to cringe-drive with Skullface.*

            *Violently shudders*




            When ever I listen to Sins of the Father I burst out laughing now.

          • No Place For Hayter

            The drive with Skull Face wasn’t cringe worthy, you want to know what was? there was only one thing in the whole game that made me cringe, and that was ummmm how to say this without spoilers. Skull Faces first few lines in mission 31, those are cringe worthy, lol.

          • JJBYACH

            I liked his cringy lines in those scenes, reminded me of MGS1.

            I hated the cringe-drive as it was so tacked on, it felt like the plot was (poorly) parodying itself, as Skullface just randomly spills his guts to a mute Snake who just replays the same idle animations for the entire journey looking like an utter retard, then Skelektor runs out of dialogue and they both awkwardly stare at each other recycle their idle animations as the song just blurts out with no contextual relevance or meaning to anything. A horrendous exposition dump, even for Metal Gear standards, and that says a lot.

          • Y Jebai

            Agreed, actually. It was awkward as hell. I think Kojima tried recreating the ladder scene, but it didn’t work. That scene worked because you knew you were going to do something horrible soon and were alone and the song was so subdued and lovely and it just made you feel so much. This felt really awkward, though. I mean, it’s not even the fact that Big Boss didn’t say a word, but more because Skull Face suddenly shuts up and Sins of the Father just starts playing for no good reason. It’s an epic song, but there was nothing epic about the car drive. They should’ve just talked, really.

          • Danny Patten

            I enjoyed that ride though xD
            Getting to him was the hardest mission so far to me.
            But rescuing the Children is pretty darn tough if you wanna go in stealth.

          • Y Jebai

            **SPOILERS** **SPOILERS**
            I’d like to help a little with the frustrations, which I absolutely understand, that you are feeling. The ending was, of course, quite controversial and personally I think there should have been a chapter 3 to add another layer to the game and actually bridge the gap between it and MG. Personally I did love the ending as well, but I see your point. I think the idea behind the fact that this Phantom Big Boss is just some medic from Mother Base is basically telling us that the player, you, me, the rest, is Big Boss. We have gone through Snake Eater, pulled the trigger on the Boss, destroyed the Mammal Pod and so on, just like Big Boss did. We have his knowledge, his experience, his pain in us and thus we relate to his need for revenge just like the Phantom does, because he has loved through those moments to in his mind. He is us, we are him and together with Big Boss we are Big Boss. The other explanation is that Big Boss is basically just a soldier, but is ranked higher than others due to his legend status. But with proper training and knowledge anyone can be Big Boss. Even a field medic. If you implant Big Boss’ personality in him and put his face on him that’ll make him look and feel like Big Boss, but also implanting his knowledge truly makes him Big Boss. Or at least his Phantom.
            As for the rest of the story, there are some very inspiring speeches about language (personally I loved that theme, too). True, Kiefer didn’t really need to be there and I also miss David. This isn’t the Snake we know, who does do long speeches and talks plenty. That decision, I agree, was bad, but it says something about Kojima taking risks. I found Skull Face to be an interesting character and liked his motif. The tapes help a lot to put the story together more, too. And playing through the game just for the Kaz Miller’s Hamburgers tapes is worth it, trust me πŸ˜‰ But back to the story. I do agree that there are some problems with it, especially since Eli’s ending was cut out (I’m guessing that’s Konami’s fault). The other thing that bothers me is the fact that really important characters like Gray Fox or Sniper Wolf weren’t in the game. As I said, there should have been a chapter 3. In that chapter we could have a time jump after the reveal (or without it), after Liquid’s battle and after Miller (Obviously now with prosthetics) and Ocelot left Diamond Dogs to follow Solid and Liquid Snake. We have Big Boss still working on Diamond Dogs, but slowly turning angrier and angrier at the world that took everything from him and made him a phantom of someone else. So he hears about the real Big Boss building Zanzibar, his kingdom, in secret and he decides to rival it with Big Boss’ original idea of Outer Heaven. And then we finally start construction of a land based mother base called… Outer Heaven. In Africa. Why else should Africa be in the game if not for that reason? Then you could visit DD mother base and Outer Heaven, with DD slowly becoming smaller and smaller and Outer Heaven becoming bigger. And that’s when Phantom Boss starts going nuts and kidnaps people, kills innocent people and starts construction on a Metal Gear to surpass the previous Metal Gears. Maybe we would’ve gotten to see him becoming comrades with Gray Fox again, whom he saves from torture, and who believes that this is Big Boss. He joins him at first (New support buddy choice on DD Mother Base! Keeping Outer Heaven and Metal Gear TX 55 a secret) and eventually Big Boss joins Foxhound again and sends Gray Fox into Outer Heaven for some recon, but he gets captured and he is forced to send in Solid Snake on Mission Intrude N313. THAT would’ve been the ending I expected. I think we all expected that. Too many characters were introduced in the trailers already and there was no surprise in any of them aside from Ishmael. Still, I do love the ending, but there should’ve just been more story after it. The way it is set up, though, I think Kojima planned to add more, but had budget and time cuts before he could do so. Gameplay, sound and graphics wise it’s pretty much perfect, but I agree that there should have been more story. I totally understand where you are coming from, though. I waited three years as well and am also getting that LE PS4, even though I also think it’s incomplete. Just focus on the good, though πŸ™‚ They outweigh the bad. Think of all the amazingly choreographed cutscenes, which are all complete one-shots, think of all the amazing voice work and think of the good things in the story and add your own version on top of it πŸ™‚

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,it’s a completed game.I don’t think they’re going to add new things to the game.
            And those removed contents really affected the story,like that White Mamba thing in Ch.2.

          • Tsitiko

            Sort of spoiler don’t read if you haven’beat the game

            I’d you get the true ending?

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,I finished the game completely.

        • Mini gear

          i liked it but both didn’t feel like a ending to me, final mission ending felt important but not an ending, true didn’t feel like a full ending but a massive fact and turning point. mission 51 would have been so good if there, i still love th game though ^-^

          • Gatsu

            Mission 51 is close to one of things what I was dreaming of to see before release :(… but I don’t consider it the ending as it’s on the CE.

        • JJBYACH

          I simultaneously hate and love the ending. At first I felt nothing but contempt for the game and all those years waiting for it, but after sleeping on it and really thinking about it, it made sense and I liked it – and hated it. The gameplay is pure magic though, makes me like –

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah the ending undermined the rest of the story, and ultimately breaks not only the rest of the series, but also the games story itself.

        • Venom_Sina

          You didn’t enjoy the ending,too?You think it’s garbage,too?lol

          • No Place For Hayter

            Loved everything up to and including mission 43, but everything after that I hated.

          • Venom_Sina

            I wasn’t really happy with the game all the time,and there was some moments that I was like:ooookkkkkkaaaaaayyyyy!!!Mission 43 was different,really enjoyed it,but the final moments…You know what I’m talking about!!!

          • Venom_Sina

            And I don’t know why,but I feel that Ch.2 was rushed and really bad written!!!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Chapter one (despite being bare bones) was well put together and solid, chapter tow though spiraled out of control and ended up all over the place which leads to zero conclusions, and then we get smacked with mission 46 OUT OF NOWHERE, it is out of place and could have easily been placed anywhere else in the story, heck we could have been told at the beginning instead of oddly forced at the end.

          • Venom_Sina

            “we get smacked with mission 46 OUT OF NOWHERE”
            This part of your comment should be written with gold!!!
            That mission and its appearance in the mission list was another negative part of the story.It just spawned in the list.Thank you for mentioning that.

          • No Place For Hayter

            It is something that you think would have been built up too or important enough to integrate with the story not just to give it to you near the end with no context or reason why.

          • I agree. The story elements in chapter 2 were (mostly) done well but the way they were exposed and connected was not done well. It felt scattered.

            And mission 43. I will remember you forever, you changed the way I look at games.

      • ElAlca

        We’re talking about the director who used a hidden ending in MGS:PW. In a game such massive as MGS V, don’t you think he can do it again and harder to find?

        • Venom_Sina

          That PW ending wasn’t hidden.at the end of Ch.4 (in PW),they said:To be continued in Chapter 5:Outer Heaven.But this game didn’t have any,and that PW ending wasn’t really hidden imo.

        • Danny Patten

          I don’t think that there is a 3rd ending tho.
          I really start to believe that there will be some sort of TPP 2.
          I mean, let’s be honest: I love Kojima to death but he is a nut job and since there are a lot of nut jobs around especially in Japan culture, Konami will find someone to continue the Story.

      • glitchbomb

        Whoa. That bad??

        • Gatsu

          Different opinions :).

          Imo it could’ve been better and the story showed Big Boss in different way than I expected sometimes, because of trailers. But still for the game we got I think it was great ending :D.

          • cardboardbox engineer

            hi gatsu,,, you are right about different opinions//// but tpp wasted resources and reasonable story telling,. mgs was always consistent but this one told us a story that can be untold,,, tpp doesn’t complete the saga it just takes a horrible turn for no good reason. not to mention the fact that having a bigboss [phantom] should trigger some dialouge within the games that happened on future time line( i cannot see liquid not mentioning the fact that he was kidnapped by a phantom snake) although i understand that this game was ultimately hideo’s ULTIMATE troll , like @venom_sina i really wanted a mgs game that i could look back and love…. this one i can ignore since it has no significant impact on the whole saga….(sorry for talking to much but i had to get this out of my chest) πŸ˜€

        • Venom_Sina

          Unfortunately,yes.That bad!!!The game really pissed me off!!!

    • Hi-five Gatsu :D. I don’t know you but now I feel a bond with you.

      Now I just want to say I’ve been the loud defender of the game here, sorry for being such a spamguy, I am just having fun here because we all can have a polite conversation.

  • H’m

    np… cant stand usng her anyway seeing shes so trigger happy

    • Danny Patten

      Yeah she’s not for the stealthy approach. DD gets along fine but I find his noises annoying. Quiets humming gets annoying as well. She restarts her hum every time she switches target.
      I never used DW and well DH is a horse…not much to it πŸ˜€

      • No Place For Hayter

        Quiet is perfect for small out posts, she marks everyone in it and can help you tranq everyone in it.

        It took me a WHILE before I knew how to properly use and manage Quiet but when I did she is amazingly useful for stealth. That being said I still prefer DD πŸ˜‰

        • Danny Patten

          I use her on Boss Fights mainly with that High Caliber Rifle.
          Just did the Skulls on Extreme and she One Shot them almost πŸ™‚

          • No Place For Hayter

            Nice, I used her high powered sniper rifle on a large outpost once and told her to open fire at will, and she literally killed the whole base, lol.

          • Danny Patten

            It is what she does xD

      • H’m

        i dont mind ddog.. unless i go prone to do abot of sniping an he always lays right infront me the lil shit, i also dont get the point of the stay/wait command for ddog as you walk ten feet and there he is right infront of you, so the pojnt is he dosnt listen?
        but quiet arghhhhhhi wish she only fired when i told her to, nothing more annoying when your in the zone halfway through heading into a base and BANG! dammmm quiet! DID I TELLYOU TO SHOOT ARGHHHHHHH!!!!
        and yeah that hum got old quickly like 2 mins into our first mission together quickly!
        πŸ™‚

        • Danny Patten

          Yeah the Wait command is way useless. I just let him run like he wants. Since he doesn’t trigger any alarms I don’t care about what he does.

    • FZJanimated

      Quiet is really good to mark you enemies or to cover you when you are in danger… i dont know i didnt find her humming annoying at all …for some reason i find more annoying the pilot of the helicopter lol

      Im feeling a huge PHANTOM PAIN after beating this game… I cant even…. You feel it too don’t you? …hell even that quote has lost all it meant πŸ™

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,the ending disappointed me too.Actually I’m really pissed off at Kojima and Konami because of this …. shit!!!!

        • VFox

          Cmon man, I know how you feel after waiting for so long for this, but I wouldn’t call this masterpiece shit, maybe it was dissapointing but it was great, IT IS GREAT, and we still have MGO to come!

      • Random sniper

        not the fuckoj=ng ending but the cut content

  • Danny Patten

    Okay…
    Get Quiet to 100%!
    Then do a mission,
    Then head back to MB with Quiet.
    Enjoy πŸ™‚

    • Gatsu
      • Danny Patten

        You’ll love it xD

        • I loved it for all the wrong reasons :(.

          I mean it, my full attention was to the… Not what you think. Jeebus how to explain it without spoilers? πŸ˜€

    • nun happens?!

      • Danny Patten

        Well I’d explain in more detail but that is a spoiler :/

        • wait a Minuit i think i saw what ur talking about NO SPOILERS but was it with rain or kids case the rain was EPIC! and beautiful

    • Kara25

      This scene triggers after chapter 1 ???

  • TheGame1083

    does the hospital scene where Kaz says WHAT ABOUT HIM appear in the game? I’m about to start Mission 13 and still haven’t seen it

    • Gatsu

      Play and you find out :).

      • TheGame1083

        awesome that exactly what I wamted to hear πŸ˜‰

    • No Place For Hayter

      What Gatsu said πŸ˜‰

      That being said there is a lot from the trailers that are not in the game, so don’t expect to see everything you have seen,

      • I don’t really recall that much content which was missing from the game. A lot of the things from the trailers were out of context, I’ve seen a lot of people around say things like “X wasn’t there” where in reality X was there but they understood it wrong and didn’t notice when it appear in the correct context…

        …so, anyone wants to do a break up of the scenes from trailers and confirm which are in and which are not? πŸ˜€

      • Random sniper

        sorry

      • TheGame1083

        that’s why I hate trailers, no camp omega, cutscenes that are cut and no motorcycle ughhh

    • JablokoMoloko86

      The tryth is out there. Just play the game and you will find out

    • Random sniper

      sorry

  • Cytiene

    So I’ve listened to the Soundtrack on iTunes now. I gotta say it’s a shame that such a masterpiece was wasted for the huge dissapointment the game was. Though what I missed from the Soundtrack were the tracks that were played in the video where Kojima announced the release date, here:

    Does anyone know if those are in the game, specifically the track at 2:00 (Which is brilliant!)? I think it’s just logical to assume that they were or are part of the soundtrack, since this is a video about MGSV. Do we have another case of cut content here? :/

  • As much as I hate to say this, I am very disappointed so far. I have finished Chapter 1 and I hope the rest of the game is better. The boss battles just feel kind of… ’empty’.

    • No Place For Hayter

      For me there was only ONE boss fight in the whole game, and that’s at the end of Chapter one. Are you disappointed in the story so far? or the amount of content in the story so far? Chapter one is written amazingly well despite how short the actually story in the chapter is.

      • I don’t really know. It just lacks something that I can’t explain. I’m not trying to say that the game is bad but I guess it just doesn’t meet my expectations. When I saw the trailers I was like ”Whoa this game is gonna be crazy!” and now I just don’t feel the same. There were some moments where I was really amazed, I especially love the ‘speeches’ in this game.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agreed, it feels like a skeleton of what it should have been.

          • Eh, with all my love for the game I can’t disagree. This game could’ve been so much more. Frankly I am really curious where those 80 million went. The only thing I can think about is that it actually includes development of Fox Engine from the ground up. Otherwise I feel like some money was wasted. Or, like some speculate, more content is going to be released in chunks in the future but that only time will tell. I hope for yes but It’s a very tiny hope.

        • Vonkronberg

          I feel the same.

      • VFox

        Chapter 1 is amazing, Chapter 2 is either kojima on fumes or the game was cut short…

    • Danny Patten

      Yeah the Boss Fights are disappointing so far. Just run around wild and shoot them with Rocket Launchers. There is nothing smart about it. Quiet is the only fight where you have to be sneaky (on Extreme only). Other than that you can S Rank Quiet in under 2 minutes…the Skulls have seemed to be awesome but are just a bunch of wildlings that even John Snow wouldn’t fear.
      The Mtal Gear Fight is just run run run run run, missle, missle, run run run run, missle missle…hide form the laser right under him.

      • Gatsu

        “The Mtal Gear Fight is just run run run run run, missle, missle, run run
        run run, missle missle…hide form the laser right under him.”

        Isn’t it always like this o_O?

        • Danny Patten

          Yeah but there is nothing “smart” about it. In PW you had to look for the parts that you wanted to farm etc etc.
          In MGS1+2+3+4 there were tricks and fun gimmicks (like shooting a tranq in their leg to numb them)
          In TPP you just put as much dmg as possible out in as short as possible time.
          The fight literally lasted for just 3 minutes.

          Don’t get me wrong; this is by FAR the best game on PS4 imho.
          But Kojima hyped the Story and Villians so much that the expectations sky rocketed.
          But that is also partially to blame on us. Life taught me one thing, don’t over hype anything and you don’t get disappointed much. In fact you get surprised much more frequently πŸ™‚

          • Wise words. No one shouldn’t blame a game developer for over hyping the game by themselves. I still stick to the opinion that I had the most fun with an MGS game ever despite its numerous flaws.

        • Venom_Sina

          For me it wasn’t “run run run run run, missle, missle, run run
          run run, missle missle…hide form the laser right under him.”
          It was worse!!! I found a tank and I jumped in it and started to fire MG.He destroyed the tank,but I dropped %75 of his health with the tank!!!A few GROM missiles and that fight was over.When I was shooting him from the tank,he didn’t bother to knock me down,but after %75 he realized that someone is shooting him!!!
          So technically for me was:”run run run jump on the tank shoot shoot missile missile”!!!

        • No Place For Hayter

          My only problem with the fight was how much money it takes to fight the darn thing, lol. The fight itself is amazing, it includes Diamond Dogs as actual help without you having to tell them anything there are an actual entity in the mission, the fight itself is the most cinematic gameplay I have ever played πŸ˜‰

          And like you said every boss is like that, saying a boss fight is bad simply because it isn’t complex enough is ridiculous, the fight does not have to be “smart” (if it was it would be far less fun to play, it would be incredibly annoying, imagine having to hit only one part of him to do damage it would be really annoying because of how much it moves) I mean the fight itself could not work any other way, the game itself explores and talks about ST is a huge manor specifically it’s armor, it is a fact of the story that it does not have the best armor in the world and thus it can be hurt no matter where you shoot it.

          There is nothing wrong with the ST fight in my eyes.

          • Danny Patten

            But there is only 1 point to do max damage πŸ˜€
            I used the CMG and it locked always on the middle part. Took easily 20% health per hit.
            And I never said they were bad. They’re just dull.
            Remember the fight with The End?
            THAT was a fight that took my all witt to defeat.
            I’m not sayng all fights should be like this but the bosses in TPP are just easy and since there is no variable difficulty level, just some hardcoded Extreme level there is nothing worth replaying unless to farm the Skulls for their Parasites. And that you only have to do 3 times to max out the Suit.

          • No Place For Hayter

            This is a problem with the game design itself, my fight with ST was really hard and long the first time I fought it, it was easy for you because you had MUCH better equipment, this isn’t the fault of the boss, it is simply a design flaw which takes away from a boss that is supposed to be tougher than he is because you had better equipment than what the mission thought you would have.

          • Gatsu

            It was hard for me too, took maybe 15 minutes and actually died to it few times also. Quiet fight too, spent 30min-1h on the fight πŸ™‚ because didn’t have the right sniper rifle and had to get close to her. Awesome battles imo :D.

          • No Place For Hayter

            The Quiet fight for me was a JOKE, let me tell you a funny story.

            I was running around doing Side OPS is afghan and suddenly there was a sniper on a cliff across a bridge, I could not go across the bridge to fight said sniper, so I decided on the only course of action that would get ride of the sniper without having to either ‘A’ call in a sniper rifle for myself or ‘B’ have to run out in the open and get myself shot. I marked the sniper and called a supply drop on his head, problem solved.

            And then I found the Quiet boss fight, and guess what the first thing I did was? I called a supply drop on her head and she lost half her stamina, and I did it one more time and the fight was over in under 5 minutes without me so much as firing a single shot, lol.

          • Gatsu

            I heard some others doing this, but because you fought her this way, that is exactly the reason the fight was a joke :). I truly enjoyed it.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, it was funny.

          • Gatsu

            Gotta try this some time xD…

          • No Place For Hayter

            Unfortunately the Extreme Quiet won’t fall for the same trick, lol.

          • N-Shifter

            I really enjoyed it as well because in my case I had a sniper rifle on me so a sniper battle was what I got. Was actually really exciting and then I keep reading people saying “it was crap cause if you just do *blah blah blah it’s easy”……….then, don’t just do the thing that makes it easy and you’ll get more out of it ffs.

          • Danny Patten

            hehe yeah, did the same.
            S Rank easy^^
            On Extreme you can’t do that anymore and you will get insta killed with 1 shot!

          • AeroGre

            On extreme you can just use the air strike

          • Venom_Sina

            You’re pretty good!!!
            I spent about 15 minutes to defeat Quiet.

          • Danny Patten

            Indeed, the moment I found out you can sell the precious metal; I simply developed everything and fultoned every soldier I found. But I think that this is the proper way to play it, sin’t it?`In the start just get everything you can.

        • AeroGre

          I just found that missile artillery truck nearby and used it, took away most of his health and after that just used like 2 rockets and my support chopper finished it off

  • vic boss

    Anyone knows where can I get the anesthesia specialist? Also playing mgsv with the songs of the trailers nuclear , not your kind of people and elegia, is just perfect.

    • Danny Patten

      I think in Mission 10 there was a POW.

      • vic boss

        Oh no I got him , it was Malak , turns out I didn’t have him assigned to the R&D team

    • Gatsu

      I love playing with the songs too =), gives the feels!

    • No Place For Hayter

      No idea, but I recommend going over the main missions list, as they show you what skills and blueprints can be obtained in each mission.

    • JablokoMoloko86

      where you can find elegia ?

      • Gatsu

        I use custom soundtrack.

      • vic boss

        I haven’t found those songs in the game Im not even sure they are in the game. I use spotify in ps4. It gets the work done and you can actually manage the volume.

  • korruption

    Oh fuck! I did use her for episode 29 (it made a lot of sense to me, that was intense!). Didn’t have any problems, though… yet.

  • Y Jebai

    I guess Kojima was right about this game being controversial. Except in a very different way, haha.

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    I’m on Mission 12 at 11% and 15 hours. Guess I have nothing to worry about.

    • vic boss

      I know right , most likely by the time you’re at mission 29 or 42 they would have a patch for it already.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Yeah, I don’t expect to be that deep in the game until maybe next month.

    • FZJanimated

      im 63% and i already did 101 side ops and 43 of the main missions and probably more than 80 hours , so i cant really remember when i used quiet lol ,but lucky me my save file is okay

  • Javier

    Room 101 is a 1984 reference. I just finished mission 29. It could have been good to use quiet. I never use her, only the horse and dog.

  • FZJanimated

    who played the FOB multiplayer? i want to invade your base :U ,i hate the fact that most of the FOB i invade have almost nothing to steal., mine is like a mine of diamonds for everyone else , i get attack alot and have to recover my stuff everytime xD

      • Gatsu

        Okey :), MGI’s cardboard box forum is great place though.

  • grapes9h5

    Beat the game on Friday, it was incredible. I wisely had the instinct to back up my saves after every mission once I realized I was nearing the likely end. GOOD CHOICE on my part, a life saver. Those who have beaten all the story will have a sense of why I might say this. When I reloaded a certain save, I started using a certain emblem, and then did the missions in a different order, omitting one indefinitely for the time…

    Also, while I was very satisfied ultimately with the game’ story and story telling, the cut mission, that’s been circling the web, infuriates me. I also noticed a key scene from the E3 2014 trailer is absent from everyone’s game seemingly.

    KONAMI, PLEASE LET KOJIMA FINISH THIS CUT CONTENT AND RELEASE AS DLC!!!! I will pay you money, even if a ripoff.

    • VFox

      Yup, I want the “STANDING” BIGBOSS

    • Gatsu

      http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cardboard_Box/topic/11321341/1/?x=0#post8327084

    • No Place For Hayter

      There are quite a few scenes from the trailers that are not in the game, let alone concepts, ideas, and content that was implied and talked about by Kojima himself.

      • solidsnack

        it’s mgs4 all over again πŸ™

      • Random sniper

        the taboos were not really taboo.exxperimentation on epople against their wishes has also been in stupid scic fi movies!!!!!!!!!

        • No Place For Hayter

          There are no taboos in TPP, Kojima fell flat in pushing any narrative boundaries, I can’t even kill the child soldier, something other games have done before, TPP does not do what other games have, let alone anything new.

  • Big Boss

    *SPOILER ALERT*If anyone tell me how to unlock mission 38? I finished the side op 144 to find the man on fires body but I can’t get to mission 38. Someone help please

    • JablokoMoloko86

      Try to listen some tapes with yellow marker. That will triger new missions ( probably ). I had a problem with true ending and I started to listen to the tapes. After that I went into free roam and iDroid gave me an information that there is a new mission.

      • Big Boss

        I listened to all the tapes and still nothing. I’m lost at what to do. I don’t want to do the same missions that are harder cause it’s not worth it. Maybe I’ll do a side op and hopefully that’ll work.

        • Just keep doing side ops and going back and forth to mother base

          • Big Boss

            Thank you! I’ll try that out. What do you recommend to do? One side op then back to mb and continue like that?

          • Do a couple at a time. It’ll usually prompt during when you jump back in your acc or right after completing a mission.

    • SholidOnline

      I wouldn’t skip any missions if I were you. I keep going back and forth from main to side ops all of the time. Not only will you definitely unlock stuff, but resources, soldiers, and weapons/items come too.

      • Big Boss

        I only skip the missions I’ve done before but are on a harder difficulty. Mostly cause I suck at being really stealthy and I don’t want to go through that process again.

        • Josh Houchin

          You can unlock all main story missions without completing all the harder difficulty replay missions.

          • Big Boss

            That’s fantastic! Cause they are disturbingly hard and I’m not down for that.

          • Josh Houchin

            I was very surprised when the final story mission became available to me last night. For reasons I can’t really talk about on here yet, I was planning on grinding for a while before actually finishing. Anyway, just get out there in the field doing side ops, you’ll be called back to MB when something important opens up.

          • Big Boss

            I’m going to do two important side ops and then move on. Thank you man!

    • Gatsu

      I did Side Ops, Mother Base visits, and complete about 3 of the Extreme difficulty missions for new story mission to appear. C2W, Backup Back Down and Footprints of Phantoms. At least it unlocked for me new missions towards the end.

      • Big Boss

        I did four side ops I think and then it just hit me with new missions and stuff.

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Soo an event is on progress that doubled PF points until the end of the month. My question is: How does one win PF points in the first place? Thank you in advance πŸ™‚

  • J_muse72

    If I have invaded any of your guys’ bases, I am so sorry for stealing all of your resources, I have invaded so many bases and stolen so much stuff, it is such an amazing MP mode, so glad they included it in this game. Need any tips? I am your guy!

    • Gatsu

      I wish I could invade from PC –> PS4. I would totally destroy your place ;)… just kidding!

    • SholidOnline

      I just have trouble sneaking once rivals drop in…

    • One dude came to my base and took 12 of my men. So I retaliated by going to his base killing over 20 of his men and took tons of containers worth of fuel, precious metals & metal + killing him when he spawned to defend with a grenade launcher. DON’T FUCK WITH MY SHIT! BHAHHA

      • JablokoMoloko86

        Hi

        How can I retaliate them ? When I click on theyr nick name I canot join for reveng.

        • Missions>FOB Missions> Retaliation Targets (choose who you want to retaliate against)> choose which FOB you want to infiltrate> choose a platform & landing zone then boom haha

          • JablokoMoloko86

            thanx I will check it when I will find some time. I have few nice items prepared for revenge πŸ™‚

    • JablokoMoloko86

      I am playing on ps4 and 3 people invided my FOB 1. It is poor and I don’t have resources there. I had 12 people only.

      My question is. Why they can attack me when I am offline ? And when i am doing missions why I don’t see any notifications/alerts about attack ? Is it bug ? Or maybe servers are not optimized good.

      And most important question. Why I can’t attack people that stole my soldiers ? When I click on them I can’t join theys games/fobs.

      • gerber

        Your fob is uploaded to a server so they can attack it even when youre offline. And you can take revenge only on guys that failed to capture your FOB

    • JablokoMoloko86

      I will check players fobs when I get 100 % of completion xd Right now i have 80 % so just need a little more time to enter to the world o fobz xd.
      I came , played , saw everything , cryed , killed , and now my goal is platinium trophy and fob πŸ™‚

  • SholidOnline

    I won’t use Quiet much after she gets to 100 anyways. Hopefully I don’t forget this though. I already have DD at 100 (because he’s AWESOME), and after Quiet, I’ll need my horse the rest of the way.

    Btw, off topic a bit, but people should check out my awesome CQC video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/jHP1rdSbzH0

    I swear, it’s no advertising. It’s an awesome move in MGS5!

    • Gatsu

      Oh my god XD…what the hell? How did the dude fly like that. So funny lol.
      “Boss, have you lost your mind!?

      • solidsnack

        kaz… i’ve already gone super saiyan

  • vic boss

    Is it weird that i’m 47 hours in and just barely at mission 24 ?

    • ominonarepus

      I’m 56 and just arrive to the mission 29 xDD

    • Gatsu

      Nope.

    • Javier

      58 hours mission 30, I think.

    • AeroGre

      82 hours mission 35

  • ominonarepus

    I’m on mission 29… and I hate it.

    Why, why you make a “infiltration” game and then you trow me on the face a FKN mission like this…
    Is exactly the same reason why I get bored of peace walker… shoot rockets to things for about 20 minutes is not fun Kojima.

    • Steven Michael Brown

      I like the change ups. At least mission 9 or somewhere around there.

    • No Place For Hayter

      The over abundant Vehicle missions in PW are nothing compared to anything, lol. Mission 29 is a boss fight of course you are going to have to fight. That being said I agree with what you said, that boss fight is annoying and they are kind of spongy for what they are, overall NOT a boss fight I enjoy, lol.

      • ominonarepus

        Yes, but is boring and annoying… it’s same thing that fails in Dark Souls 2, give the boss 20000000000000000 life points dosen’t make it harder or interesting if the only thing you have to make is run-attack-run-attack-run-attack for about 30 minutes ( I started again once I write before and the last motherfocker kill with just one hit…)

        • No Place For Hayter

          Combat in TPP is annoying as all hell, the only time I enjoyed it was with the final boss, lol.

          • ominonarepus

            No,I think is quite funny actually.

            Before I develop a silenced rifle for Quiet, they start alert mode every time she shoot, and I enjoiyed…run, cover, duck, put traps, use them as human shield, headshoot sound is eargams… but every time I read SKULLS parasite unit at the beginning of a mission is like… shit no please…

            The only time I “””enjoy””” fight them is against the female unit… and even that one is a copy of Quiet fight… and that last one a less inspired copy of The End fight… dunno, I’ve expected great boss fight and all I find is me shooting these guys until I run out of ammo… at least the rest of the game is superb!

          • No Place For Hayter

            Agreed, the male skulls are annoying and dumb to deal with, but I did enjoy fighting the female skulls.

        • kirtanloorii

          Use a rifle with high penetration, like a sniper rifle. Heavy body armor and target one at a time. Also you can counter-CQC to make them vulnerable for a moment. Dont forget to bring supply flares.

  • Steven Michael Brown

    Someone else posted this earlier, but what the heck Are pf points anyway? It says they have something to do with campaign

    • @_@
      I have no clue actually. I need this answer too haha

    • Raven_Sorrow

      Yes I did. No response though. Maybe http://youtu.be/s88r_q7oufE

      • Steven Michael Brown

        Hah I was beginning to wonder. It’s information you only unlock after mission 42 1/2

        • Raven_Sorrow

          Really? Awesome bro! Thanks for the info πŸ™‚

    • No Place For Hayter

      PF = Private Force.
      It is your online ranking when compared to other PF’s aka other players.

        And how do you win them? XD

        • No Place For Hayter

          I think it is just a ranking.

          for example there could be 10,000 people and you are number 4,321, out of 10,000

          In other words the smaller the number the better aka the closer to the top or the best you are.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            Actually you can use them to buy stuff like rank A++ soldiers of each department and resources of every kind. In PF grade menu R2 to open PF points store on PS4

          • No Place For Hayter

            Really? wow, than in that case all I know is.

            PF = Private Force, lol.

          • Raven_Sorrow

            And weirdest part is no one knows how to win these points yet there is an ongoing event that doubles these points winnings xDD

    • Danny Patten

      From the Guide (no spoilers):

      PF is a abbrevation for Private Force, and the rating is a measurement how your PF compares to other players. There are 29 different ranks from E, the worst, to AAA, the best. The PF rating changes frequently based on virtual fights with players in the same ranking that happen automatically. You can move up a ranking and lose ranking. They’re are just simulated fights and you don’t lose any recruits from losing.

      • Steven Michael Brown

        Ok thanks.

      • Steven Michael Brown

        And of course now that I ask it tells you on game startup. Maybe I’ve been skipping over it because the server messages irritate me so much

  • Big Boss

    Thank you everyone that has helped me. I did a couple side ops back to back and I was able to unlock the mission. You all are amazing people and have given me better advice than any other source on the Internet! You’re all diamonds!

    • No Place For Hayter

      I’m glad we were able to help you πŸ™‚ after all most of us are playing the game like mad and are still here, it will take the internet a while before everything for the game is put up for easy access.

      Welcome ( ‘ ‘ )7 glad you joined us in the comments πŸ™‚

  • No Place For Hayter

    GOOD NEWS FOR ME!

    EBgames finally shipped my PS4 Collectors edition πŸ™‚

    I’m so happy to finally see it coming, I’m also happy to be done dealing with them, lol, never ordering from them ever again, lol.

    • ominonarepus

      Lucky you! πŸ˜€

      • CR7HarisSnake

        Dont worry man u will enjoy the game :). I hope u havent spoiled somewhat but i wish u a nice play then πŸ™‚

    • solidsnack

      congrats man i’ve been hoping you’d get it πŸ™‚

  • solidsnack

    damn a metal gear informer chat would be amazing. we could set up an irc channel or something with info on the right border? just an idea but this would be cool i think

  • PsychoMantis18

    Hello all,
    There is alot of BS on the net and alot of discussion about how many main missions there actually are, and the cut mission, blah blah blah…..
    Can someone please just tell me simply – how many story missions are there? As in the full story from start to finish? Is it 50?

    Thanks and happy MGSV-binging

    • AeroGre

      Theres 50, but some of them I think around 7-10, are just older missions with special circumstances such as the difficulty is on extreme, game over when spotted etc., also once you finish all the missions I heard that you should go find the video about mission 51 that was cut from the game cause apparently theres important story stuff on there too

      • PsychoMantis18

        Thanks for the reply – yeah, I was reading about the missing mission 51 thing, it’s making me worry about the conclusion. Also read that the game CAN finish at mission 46 also. Hopfefully doing all the side-ops will keep it from being a problem.

        • AeroGre

          Oh, I should probably back up my save file around that point then just to make sure I can play all the missions

          • No Place For Hayter

            Don’t worry after getting the final ending you still get to play the game, getting the ending does not end the game.

          • AeroGre

            Will i still have all my buddies?

          • Josh Houchin

            Put the Butterfly [Front] in your emblem design until you finish mission 46. Can’t say too much more.

            You FINAL ending does not effect your buddies. There are 3 times the credits role in the game, and one does effect your buddies, for the middle ending (for most people, as it is possible to have this be your last ending despite it not being the final mission) you lose one of your buddies. There is a way to keep your buddy though, but it does prevent you from finishing that story part and prevent you from 100% as it is a mission or two. Completing mission 41 sets into motion the events, so before you complete mission 41 you use the “Butterfly” design on your emblem which will prevent the story from triggering.

          • AeroGre

            I read about the butterfly thing but the thing is I also read that if I do this I cant unlock mission 46, so Im guessing Ill just have to make a backup save?

          • AeroGre

            I read about it and it said if I use the butterfly I wont be able to do mission 46 which is apparently the true game ending, is this true cause its gonna suck to have to lose someone I invested a lot of gmp in

        • No Place For Hayter

          Don’t worry after getting the final ending you still get to play the game, getting the ending does not end the game.

          Yeah mission 46 is the final main story mission, the story ends there, not the game.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Uhhhh, thankyou. That’s what I wanted to know. So mission 46 is the final Story mission. Thankyou very much

    • grapes9h5

      50, but a the majority of missions after 30, are replay missions with special difficulty settings. That said, the missions post-30 that are new offer MAJOR story events, not necessarily during the missions, but between them back at Mother Base.

      • PsychoMantis18

        Thanks for the reply, appreciate it. Just wanting to make sure I don’t fuck up my first playthrough. I want ALL the story.

    • No Place For Hayter

      No it is not full story from start to finish, most MAIN OPS are basically SIDE OPS which were too unique to label as side ops, only about 10 of the 50 main missions are actual main story mission.

      But yeah there are 50 main missions, and from what we see from the bonus Blu-ray there was an essential story mission, mission 51 which didn’t make it into the game thus leaving HUGE plot threads hanging without resolution.

      • PsychoMantis18

        Ohhhhh, I hope the ending satisfies. Our last one…, this negativity popping up regarding the games ending is getting me upset!

        • No Place For Hayter

          The problem with whether the ending is satisfying or not lies in the fact that the ending isn’t an “ending” it is more of a reveal of important things. But I hope you like it, hating it sucks, lol.

          • PsychoMantis18

            It’s still the end though as it completes Kojima’s saga and connects the Big Boss and Snake generations; Hopefully with an emotional kick in the balls.

            Have you finished it?

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yep, finished all the story.

            What did I think of it? I though it was unfinished, severely lacking, a complete mess, and the “end” of the game is randomly thrown at you and is broken and dumb at best and undermines the rest of the story for no good reason.

            That being said I loved what little story I got up to and including mission 43 but it went down hill pretty fast from there for me.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Ohhhhhhhh, mang!! That sucks, obviously i’m hoping I won’t feel the same, but….. You had my anxiety at ‘unfinished’.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Don’t want to mess you with too much before you play, lol. Want you to have your own Interpretation πŸ˜‰

        • Gatsu

          It’s depressing yeah if haven’t finished the game, which is why I hope people would use the forum thread for blowing out some steam.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, I went full blackout until I finished the story for reasons like that, lol.

  • AeroGre

    Can someone tell me why the online dispatch missions take so long? like Ive been going down the list and the shortest one takes 11 hours. Am I missing something?

    • J_muse72

      No, that is what MB coins are for, to speed it up, the missions occurs in real time so when you stop playing, the time still goes down.

  • grapes9h5

    I used Quiet in both these missions, before the news broke, but my game was fine. I guess I dodged a bullet.

    • Sockerfri

      Huh, I just noticed I did that too. I dont think I wouldve been able to finish those missions if it werent for Quiet. She kicked ass in that mission!

  • JablokoMoloko86

    After one week of playing mgsv…I went outside to see people…
    http://www.troll.me/images/jumanji/where-am-i-what-year-is-it-thumb.jpg

    All I can say that this game is preety good. Somone could say that pacing of the story is slower than old mgsv. Maybe it is true but It is worth to wait for the cutscenes. they are incredible.
    Gameplay 10/10 ( freedom of chices – in one mission my task was to fallow a jeep with soldiers. I threw a decoy on the road. They went outside to check. When they were outside I fultoned theyr car. They looked , paniced and they started to run towards theyr objective on foot. I jumped on my d-horse i laughing out lout headed to an objective to prepare an ambush passing this soldiers runing few kilometers to theyr destinations xd )
    Music – Ludvig Forssell did a great job compossing a gret set of music. One of the best from the series. When there is an alarm in afganistan and whole world want you dead there is one track that pumps blood faster… the track is called Beautiful Mirage – The Vision Fades and is a metalic sound like some type of siren or i don;t know… very disturbing and climatic.
    Story – very intersting. Maybe slow paced but still good. To be honest I almost cryed twice during some events. And maybe I am crazy but when I solved one quest ( people who finished it will know what quest ) So after that quest we see an explanation cutscene and at the end I was… damn , I don;t know It was just so sad and… damn. Maybe because of that music “Objective Complete” ( thats the name ).
    Graphics – 10/10 Afaganistan like a real place. Damn this rocks , deserts , sun and animals. D-horse + Rocket Launcher + full speed + V has come to in cassete tape + shooting helis riding a d-horse… feels so damn good.

    And to all people that complains about open world and type of gameplay/story/mechanics –> Big Boss is no longer a puppet in the hands of the country… he is a country by himself πŸ™‚ he will not gain power by just doing simple tasks. He need people , mother base , and resources to finish his goal. He must go forward and spread his field of vison. No more shiity missions. Now he works to create Outer Heaven. So no more small missions. This time the the whole world is his mission : ) We MUST see what he was doing to get THIS Outer Heaven. He didin’t alway crawling in the gras or through ventilations shafts. This time he has a power , peopl;e ,technology… If you look that way you will see how ambitious Kojima project (mgsv ) is. It is not simple coridor stealth mission : ) This is fukin Outer Heaven menagement xd

    Final Verdict 10/10 but I know some peple will give only 9/10 because Kojima showed story in a very “differant” way: than usual πŸ™‚

    • MichaelPayneV

      After actually playing it, i will give it, not a Rating, but an A, not A+, not S, but A.

      Looks like MGS3 remains the best MGS for me, looks like i’ll have to wait more untill we get a better MG than 3, hopefully whoever does the new Series puts as much heart as Hideo!

  • So how much did they actually cut from the game??

    • Only they really know.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I have a feeling that the Cut Conent will be Added for free (That’s what i hope) and that it will be Justified Story Wise, like it was a Glitch, and THAT will be the real ending, the momment when the Phantom Pain the Ending Left us with will be Gone!

        • Random sniper

          im sure a lot of content at least a quarter or half of the game was cut but if its less hallelujah

  • Tsitiko

    So is any one else having problems connecting on mgs V for the Xbox one?

  • JJBYACH

    So I was on reddit. They mentioned something “interesting”, what they are doing at KojiPro is the missing piece; a conspiracy to surpass the head transplant.

      While I agree with most of what he is saying, I HIGHLY dislike how he generalizes the MGS fan base.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Yes, i also disagree on that, but i respect his opinion, he has a good point!

        Plus, There is no such a thing as a Perfect Fan-Base, Perfect is just a relative term!

    • solidsnack

      yeah i just got to africa and i’m kinda sick of the same fetch missions basically but the gameplay is really fun even if the objectives aren’t varied. still i gotta say i was expecting more from kojima’s magnum opus/swan song.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Looks like Kojima was not in a good mood when he made this Game.

        Can’t wait to see what he does next!

    HOW THE ACTUAL FUCK does Big Boss has both eyes fine when he is being “Ishmael” what the hell KOJIMA?

    Was Ishmael actually supposed to be the Player, was he Venom, but then Hideo realised that it would be dumb to cut both Boss and Venom’s Arms?

      My head canon is that Ishmael is not BB, and BB is just tripping balls the entire game, as the game goes out of its way to show that Venom Snake is not a reliable source of information about anything relating to who he is or what he has done

          Maybe BB never rode of on a motorcycle, and Ishmael was just his subconscious…
          Nah, I dunno, I need to replay the game a few times to figure it out, there is so much for shadowing. I think the ending is perfect from a thematic point of view – it hurts that it’s not what I wanted, but that is the whole point.

          And he’re comes what i meant by Plot Wholes, more exactly “Technical” Plot Wholes, Direction Plot Wholes!

          Anyway, TPP is a bigger Mind Fukk than MGS2, and i love it for it!

          • No Place For Hayter

            TPP makes sense.
            I still have trouble completely understanding the whole nature and concept of MGS2.

            That and I love MGS2 but hate TPP.

      • Random sniper

        its called schizophrenia i already shared this via a link but im lazy and youre oretty awesome to have shared this!

    • Oh yeah no shit

  • MichaelPayneV

    Can someone elighten me on what Black Hound is, and what does it have to dow ith Metal Gear and/or Hideo Kojima (Other than it sounds close to Fox Hound!

    • solidsnack

      it’s a mysterious website with a counter that ends on 11/9 and in the source or something it says “A ##### ###### Game” along with some other weird hints and some morse code that means “is there such things as an absolute, timeless enemy?” but i remain skeptical.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Looks like Joakim Mogren is back!

        Kep-tu waitrigu, hah?

        • solidsnack

          i like how joakim has joke at the start, i just realised that hahah

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah, looks like a fan site. Anyone with half a brain can Google a morse code and binary translator online. The only thing that makes me slight raise an eyebrow is the ending of the phantom episode, and there is also Kojima’s statements on the taboo stuff and how he is doing something relating to GZ that can only be done in video games, and finally there is the fact that the prologue of the game is called Ground Zeroes – WTF? And the website was made before the phantom episode was revealed so there is no way that guy would be able to draw a connection between TPP and 9/11 besides luck (probably the case). But I do think it’s a fun coincidence (bar the subject matter) in the same vein as the head transplant debacle.

        • solideater

          If you look at the source code in it there is line which states the following:

          “You’re clever, but not quick enough. There will be future opportunities to leave your mark on the world of Black Hound, so don’t touch that dial.”

      EDIT: Black Hound is a Dog Race, so could be the Trasition from “Diamond Dogs”, to “Black Hound” to then “Fox Hound”?

      • No Place For Hayter

        Wasn’t Foxhound already formed between MGS3 and PW?

          Based on information from MGS1, nut that was a long time ago!

    A Question to those who finished the Story (Not just chapter 1) the Question is not a Spoiler, so please answer only with YES, or NO!

    Question: Now you understand why the Whole Kojima/Joakim, the Phantom Development Studio Mobydick, why Hideo wore Bandages before the reveal.

    2 Game Creators, 2 Development Studios, 2 Games, all mirrors of each other!

    • No Place For Hayter

      No.

        2 Game Creators (Kojima & Joakim) is the foreshadowing of 2 Big Boss, 2 Development Studios is the foreshadowing of Diamond Dogs and Outer Heaven, Diamond Dogs being Mobydick, the Phantom Development Studio, the “not so real” one, and then Hideo wearing the Bandages, but also joakim, and the fact that the Ishmael mask Hideo had, didn’t had Hideo’s Eyes, but the eyes of the mask, foreshadowing the Bandage Man being the actual Big Boss!

        • No Place For Hayter

          No, I got that. it just doesn’t really work enough like that for me to say that, so nope no idea.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well, is your opinion, believe what you want, since you now are freee…do as you will!

          • No Place For Hayter

            I wouldn’t call it “free”

            After waiting years for the disappointment TPP was, I feel deflated but certainly not free, maybe that was Kojima’s goal to create a story so broken it made us feel a phantom pain for the game and it’s story, lool.

          • Hussain Alkhalaqi

            i couldn’t agree more, the trailers fooled us on so many levels it’s insane, I can list it for you but it would spoil, so until MGI opens a spoiler-discussion I can’t talk about it.
            overall it was brilliant, from an artistic point of view, Kojima delivered his vision of that feeling called “The Phantom Pain”, we all felt it, and god damn does it suck so much to feel this way, I feel so empty and disappointed, but in the same time, i feel baffled… Soooooo many great opportunities were wasted when it came to the story.. that It just feels, extremely saddening just thinking about what this game could’ve been.

            Thank you, I wanted to get some stuff out of my chest.

          • I have a lot to say aswell and very disappointed with the game. And the fact that they cut so much out of the game. Why? It’s made and can be still there and every one loves the game. But instead they went for “we’ll cut half the game story and make everyone disappointed and lose sales because it went over the budget but we’ll cut shit out that was paid to be made from the budget” it’s retarded and I just don’t get it.

          • Why did you make this game Kojima? Just to let us suffer a phantom pain?

          • JJBYACH

            That actually was the point, lol. I can now empathise with how BB felt after killing the boss – hollow. This game is a BB simulator: and BB’s life is not sunshine and roses, it’s just pain caused through manipulation and confusion by those he thought closest to him.

          • No Place For Hayter

            I almost started posting spoilers, lol, cannot discuss this point as it would dive into spoilers.

            All I can say is I disagree.

    Zero is the one who initiated the plan of getting a body-double for snake, not only to protect him from Skull Face but ALSO from the Patriot AI in the future. Zero loved snake as a brother and wanted to protect him. It’s true that they had their differences but he doesn’t want snake to be killed by his creation (patriot AI). After he gets in a coma(Zero getting in a coma because of skull face’s “gift”), he won’t have control over the patriot’s AI to protect snake from them SO that’s why he initiated the plan of creating a body-double. Also, i wanna mention that the only three that know there’s a body-double are Zero, Ocelot and Kaz, the patriot AI doesn’t know. In 1995, the “U.S” controlled by the Patriot’s AI not knowing that Big Boss is behind Outer Heaven, they told Big Boss (the leader of special unit FoxHound) to investigate Outer Heaven of whether they have Metal Gear or not. So Big Boss takes the job and sends a cassete tape to the Phantom Big Boss, called “Operation Intrude N313″(The mission name given to solid snake in MG1 to infiltrate Outer Heaven) as we saw in the ending of MGSV to warn the phantom Big Boss of Solid Snake coming to investigate the area. And as we all know, in MG1, Big Boss leads Solid Snake to traps trying to kill him, And when Solid Snake figured that Big Boss( not knowing it’s the phantom) is behind Outer Heaven, he killed him. And The real Big Boss continued building his Outer Heaven till 1999. So in a sense, the phantom Big Boss protected the real big boss and serves his purpose.

    • Gatsu

      This is my thoughts too.
      Also it explains some things for me.
      I created spoiler thread if wanna chat more in MGI forums, you just gotta create a user there.

        Alrighty thanks ;’D

        • Gatsu

          Np ;)…

  • Vonkronberg

    Someone already managed to complete 100%?

    • 100% doesn’t mean anything if they cut half the story out of the game…

      • Vonkronberg

        Yeah, I know! I Just wanted to know if someone already did that

      • 100% means all gameplay accomplishments / challenges. The story has quite low to deal with the completion percentage. I believe that S-Ranking all main missions + trials such as “stealth, no kills” (“perfect stealth”…,dunno yet how far they went this time nor sure about how trials are exactly qualified) + potentially items to collect such as GZ’s XOF patches, should do for approaching 100%.

      • Gatsu

        It does mean for some… There’s no point in being mad about the cut content forever, its not gonna change.

        • True I know. I love the game. Really I do but just expected so much more and that’s because of the trailers.

  • Random sniper

    i wanted to ask a question/whats the darkest movie youve watched

      Hmm it’s hard to really because I have watched so many. Or maybe I don’t remember all :(…

      • Random sniper

        Did you watch requiem for a dream ? Planning to. But I could say oldboy which had perfect balance with humor and dark scenes and it’s one of kojimas favourite too

        • Obviously the Korean version? It was awesome. If you liked Oldboy try The Chaser, it’s also brilliant http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1190539/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

          • Random sniper

            Ofc the fucking Korean version and the chaser I watched the indian remake it was shit!!!!!I don’t know why but I hate my indian ancestors becoz of shitty remakes but atleast I’m not indian and why did I watch bollywood shit in the first place?

          • Watch the original then, it’s great! There is one indian sci-fi movie I really liked, Enthiran. The action sequences are fun and the plot is, mostly, solid. Nothing deep though. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1305797/

          • Random sniper

            Dat actor has the most ridiculous action sequences in the history of north and South Indian cinema.Im interested in the chaser and bittersweet life but I’m too scared to watch I saw the devil TOO BRUTAL.

          • Was just kidding. BTW, THX, good to know that the secret visit can somehow definitively flash BB’s blood level. I think your issue should be reported / addressed because it looks quite serious…

          • Stuart

            yeah looks like a few people are suffering the issue on the konami forums

          • Is the issue platform specific ? BTW, what’s your’s ?

          • Stuart

            Iv got it on pc and ps4, only happened on ps4 so far, but couldn’t say that it is plat specific, i would say to avoid it just make sure you shower before you do anything else on mother base every time you get back there

            Quiet washes you off? How is this done?! =O

            The same way you get ocelot to wash you off but quiet needs to be in the chopper when youre returning to base

        haha, nice! πŸ™‚

    • I would say “completed the story”, because completing the game (main+side ops) must be an astronomically different challenge. πŸ˜€

      • Stuart

        yeah, finished the story once, through 82 side ops out of 150 done, (basically all of afgan side ops nearly maxed) still most of south africa to go, and once there done i will start going through the story again getting S ranks and doing the side objs

        • S-Ranking all and “stealth, no kills” is going to be tedious but ultra-fun.

          • Stuart

            I’m not looking forward to doing Extreme stealth and subsistence mission on S managed to get one first try, but i think that was total fluke

          • Those extreme challenges give, like in GZ, a totally different insight about what the engine is capable of, if compared with very first playthroughs. I mean that the dev’s heavily worked on balancing the difficulty for these trials (if they pushed it like in GZ, need to check, yum !).

          • Stuart

            jsut been informed that its not a glith, its to do with your demon poins level which goes up the more you kill and destory things the longer the horn gets and you willl be covered in blood untill you decress your demon level, (this is not explained in game very well thats why i thought it was a glitch

          • Ha ! that’s why… So the visit (you stated before) to the medic platform is not involved. Good !

          • Gatsu

            This is awesome and I have to try it. I’ve got lot of blood but havent noticed the horn grow much.

      • Tong Ninja

        Oh yeah, I mean completed the story! πŸ™‚

    • Danny Patten

      Don’t let others dissatisfaction influence your opinion about the game. They sure raise it all the time that they didn’t enjoy the story and obviously don’t know when to shut up about their opinion.

      • Stuart

        i didn’t notice anyone was unhappy with the game ?

        • Danny Patten

          not with the game itself but the story. Just read a couple of comments down. I’m not saying that they have no right to express them but rubbing it in everyone’s nose gets a little old. But that may be just my observation.

          • Stuart

            ah ok,
            i think its kinda hard for people to remember that the story is spread over a 70+ hour game (i hear there is still bits missing you need to do all mission and side ops to get some more or something) but even if that isn’t true the story is spread over 70+ hours not the usual 20 30 hours a metal gear game used to take to beat fully, it does things differently so its a little disjointed on how the story is delivered but its definitely there and its definitely good

          • JJBYACH

            It’ll pass, remember how everyone hated on MGS2, 3, 4, and peace walker’s story, focusing on what it does wrong, then months later people start focusing on what it does right and just accept it.

          • Gatsu

            Yeah, I remember many hating MGS2 a lot for some time, I did too at first when had to play with the pretty boy. But it changed for me :). It was nice to see Snake from another perspective.

      • Tong Ninja

        I don’t mind people giving their opinions (good or bad) on the story and what not, but I would prefer if they did it on the forums as people still haven’t finished the game (or even got the game yet). Also there were some indications of story spoilers on here as well which I was lucky not to read them. πŸ™‚

        Some of my friends who lurk on this site here (they just got the game), are like super depressed that the game isn’t as good because people said the story was bad, etc.. but they haven’t even played it yet! haha

        • Gatsu

          It divides fans, me + some others here are satisfied but some aren’t.

            i think it’s a genius ending, that’s all i’ll say πŸ™‚

        • Danny Patten

          Indeed, the game is what you make out of it πŸ™‚
          And I’m not against it. I encourage it but there’s a point where it is nothing more than barking up the tree :/

          Anyway, enjoy your Outer Heaven comrade!

    • Gatsu

      Vacation time. Finished story in about 80 hours, would’ve played longer before finishing but didn’t want to get spoiled of the ending. Which is my reason :), still enjoying soooo much :D.

      Ppl should use the forums for sharing the disappointments, it is depressing to read them while playing.

      PS imo it was good.

      • solideater

        The gameplay was great 11/10, best in the series.. story :-/

  • Danny Patten

    I started to listening to all cassettes now.
    I have not all the time and now I’ve got a rather nice audiobook experience ahead πŸ™‚

    • Gatsu

      I enjoy listening them between missions ^_^.

  • korruption

    I’ve just finished the chapter before you have to fight the Saha…Sarkees… fuck it I can’t spell it, and I still wanna cut Miller’s goddamn head off and punt it into the ocean. Does anyone else here hate his guts?

    On a sidenote, I went back to Mother Base and threw one of my guys into the ocean, earning me a game over screen. It was worth it. XD

        I hope he deleted it himself because jmuse is one of the best user here and I wouldn’t want him to be banned

      • J_muse72

        It’s in the trailer.

        • Gatsu

          I know it is ;), but I still removed it :P… Who knows, if some get some weird ideas lol. Sorry friend ;O….. >__<

          Maybe I'm being too trigger happy.

        • Random sniper

          I’m sorry comrade I should had shut the fuck up but it was already confir

        • Random sniper

          In e3 2015 . Your pretty good!

  • Random sniper

    Gatsu can I speak about something in the intro

    • Gatsu

      I’m not sure yet, because there been comments once in a while with someone just getting the game.
      But if you got the time you can create a user on MGI forums and discuss it with us there, it won’t take long to create one.
      Here’s the thread:
      http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cardboard_Box/topic/11321341/1/#new

      If chat there, dont have to worry at all about what you can post :).

      • Random sniper

        I already created an account

      • Random sniper

        I’m online in which board are you here?

  • BurntFM

    Man you guys are “pretty good” lots of people here have already finished the game O.O! Am I playing it wrong or something? lol I’m on episode 24. One thing I know for sure is that when I finish the game I will open this badboy up. It’s still shrink wrapped. I’ve been tempted to open it since I got it

    • Gatsu

      I’ve been doing long play sessions haha and had a reason I wanted to finish before completing everything.

  • Odd

    I played with Quiet in mission 29 and I didn’t have this saves trouble (I’m on PC)

    • It doesn’t effect every one. But if you replay it don’t use her. It might happen :/

      • korruption

        I got real lucky by replaying mission 29 repeatedly (I forgot about the glitch). I died a lot but managed to farm some Skull goodies.

    • Gatsu

      No problem for me either and on PC.

  • Gatsu

    SPOILER DISCUSSION thread is here if interested:
    http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cardboard_Box/topic/11321341/1/#new

    If you got 1-2 minutes to spend, create a user on the forums and you can discuss it all freely there. I know it’s easier just to post here, but there maybe still lots who haven’t finished and they like to visit this front page too.

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      I ‘ll def sign up when I finish the game. I’m taking my time so it could be awhile. I’m currently 35percent done.

      • Gatsu

        Take your time man, the only reason I rushed in the end was because I gotta keep spoilers away.

    • Vonkronberg

      I want to go there, and read every line. But I didnΒ΄t finished the game yet!

  • Tong Ninja

    πŸ™‚
    Stefanie is still really scared of this game even after playing it at Kojima Station last year! XD

  • solideater

    Guys Do you think MGSV would be GOTY.. I think Witcher 3 or Fallout 4 may take it.

    • Gatsu

      Hmm for me yeah :)…but I still haven’t finished Witcher 3. There’s just too much to do in the game, which is both nice and bad. Bad is the reason I’ll never finish it lol, when I wanna do everything. Maybe will be the same with Fallout 4 -_-.

      Anyway, to be completely honest, I don’t really care about those GOTY titles. TPP is one of the best games for me and that’s enough. I will enjoy playing all the 3 and excited for Fallout 4, hopefully they make a fantastic PC port. πŸ˜€

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Whos goty? IGN, gamespot, giantbomb, VGA, gameinformer, etc.

  • Alright, it’s irritating now. How the heck do FOBs work really? I’ve been attacked 5 times and I never got a notification that someone is infiltrating my FOB :/

    • Gatsu

      What I’ve understood is that your FOB can be invade even if your are offline. Which is pretty crazy.
      I’ve been notified twice during few days, when I start the game that my FOB was invaded and lost 10-15 dudes.

      I’m gonna retaliate.

      Also now just started playing and “Defense successful” ;D, nice job my comrades.

      • I try to retaliate but they’re always under attack :(. And my noobs couldn’t defend a clay cup from rust so, eh…

        • Danny Patten

          Adjust your security settings then xD I only had like 3 successful infiltration to me.

          • Gatsu

            I’m about to get some shit started, and trying to invade. All your base are belong to me >:D !

          • Danny Patten

            Good luck bro. I defend vigorously! Grenade Launcher and Rocket Launcher at yo face

          • I will damned retaliate if you attack me :P.

          • I had them maxed but they’re dumb as… dumb things? I think I need to get some more security tech.

          • Danny Patten

            Tech helps but the level of the Soldiers defending plays a role a swell. If you have only A-s Solders stationed you enemies will have a hard time. They respond way quicker to sounds and visuals etc.

      • Wow really… I never got a notification

        • Gatsu

          They appear usually to me if start the game. Damn I better make my defenses higher because of these offline invaders.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            There isnt a way to protect people on your friends list yet, unless Im missing something. When you expand the command deck they have to go through every deck to get to the main deck, which accompanied by all the amenities you get from the security upgrades makes for one hell of a defense against invaders.

            Same apples to every subdeck (R&D, Medical, etc)

          • PhantomSnake

            I go to basic settings and apply the maximum preparedness level then go to the advanced settings for each platform and deck to tweak the positions of the guards and have the security devices maxed out on each platform and deck. I have only been invaded once or twice and have 16 successful defenses. Also remember that some of the items that you develop I.e. battle armor, machine guns, etc. If stated by development screen are equippable by your staff.

      • No Place For Hayter

        And this is why I play offline, invaded when I’m not online? I think that’s dumb, lol. Gods know what I would lose If I logged back in, lol.

        • Gatsu

          But the invading is darn exciting πŸ˜€ and challenging. Okey I failed once now, but practise makes better lol. Its cool to steal stuff muahahhaaAHAAAAA.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, invading would be fun, I just don’t have the time or resources to build an FOB of my own, I don’t even have enough for my main Mother Base, let alone an FOB, lol.

        • At the same time I dislike this but on the other I like how the game pulls you out of your comfort zone without your consent. On the other hand It’s kinda stupid that they can deplete you fully of a resource.

  • Do you know that all these tapes could have actually been cut-scenes ??? All this because of MF Bastards saying “ha, too much, here, not enough there…”. WTF

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Tapes have been super prevalent since bioshock, and I prefer tapes to codec scenes personally.

      • Ok, maybe Hideo too, but some recent development(s) might have forced him to keep it all audio only, I guess…

      • I mean in MGS2, those diagrams and archive images fading together also mixed with drawings gave a pretty efficient narrative atmosphere. I agree that pure codec is visually boring.

        • GrayFoxWasTaken

          Yeah, but it slowed the game to a hault and only served as exposition dumps, now I get all my exposition while im looking for diamonds or free roaming one of the 2 non mother base maps. I think that style is awful because it reminds me of the awful children cartoons where they give you a slideshow with some old dude narrating, they showed them all the time in elementary and I still remember how bad they were.

    • Gatsu

      But it would also mean a lot more work to be done, not sure if they had the time. Some of them sound really awesome.

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Cant forget that people got mad about mgs4 being so cutscene latent (not me)

      • Sure but even if Kojima had to “put water in his wine”, I think MGS3 was like millesime, MGS4 was perhaps too much for some (not me).

      • PhantomSnake

        Yeah I have a feeling if given enough time from Konami Kojima would have done so much more for this game. It is already amazing but can you imagine if he was given more time?

        • My nose would have bleed but I was more than ready to wait for it. Specially because he never fuck up (right??).

      • I hope the job is done already and it is just KCE wanting to deal parts of it to us…

    • Tong Ninja

      I agree but not all of them … but maybe around half of them could of been great as cutscenes. πŸ™‚
      This would lead to more facial capture from the actors which would of looked great as well!
      Also we would hear Snake talk more! (as Kiefer talks way more in the tapes haha)

      • Correct, not all of them. Maybe the yellow ones or part of them. The rest could have been served with codec mixed with archive photos and drawings like in MGS2…

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Some FOB tips

    Dont just pick random people, lower level bases are great training but will yield lower rewards
    Playing as snake isnt always the best choice
    Non lethal isnt always the best option
    The more decks you have for a unit, the farther they have to travel to “win” but they will be able to take more men and materials.

    Deployments level up your combat team way faster than any other unit, so take your top combat unit guys and put them on your security team to develop the best equipment and then either transfer them back to combat or leave them, and keep leveling your combat unit.

    • Gatsu

      Yeeeeeah I just learned this the hard way lol, I chose to invade a dude that had lvl 29 level. Oh god it ended up brutally… for me. XD

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        Yesterday I invaded a Base development platform that didnt have an exit, worst infiltration ever lol

        • Gatsu

          ;D haha that must have been awesome!

        • There are stairs down in one corner of the central indoor section.

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            I was impatient

        • Gatsu

          Thanks for the tips anyway, I’m just starting to do FOB more now :D.

    • Danny Patten

      Pro Tip:
      Main Weapon: Lethal
      Main Back Weapon: Enemy > lvl 20 -> Lethal/Explosive
      Enemy Tranq Sniper
      Sub Weapon: Non Lethal
      Any S Rank in Battle with the Brawler trait are good to go.

      Any unless you got the gear stay away from high level FOBs. you’ll get rekt.

  • J_muse72

    Fobs: All your base is belong to me.

    • I do not have waters yet, the connection failed while I was forced to purchase one. Yarf Yarf !

      • J_muse72

        It’s still very unstable because there are a lot of people on PlayStation consoles, and PC too I think.

        • Well it is ok because I do not always play after work unfortunately. I take my time to finish it, trying to do as much as various things in the game.
          I keep in mind FOB’s but since I am not done with main missions and few side ops yet, I just focus on pure solo for now, no pb.
          I don’t know how FOB’s work but one think I love for sure is sneaking in the MB, so… Serious fun ahead, I guess !!! πŸ˜€

    • Gatsu

      :C …please spare my life.

      • J_muse72

        If I see your name, I will support you.

  • Okay, FOB *IS* broken. For the last 4 hours I was playing the game, online. I was attacked during that time. Not only I got notification that the invasion is in process, the game didn’t even bother to tell me that the attack is over and I am out of all friggin’ biological material :/.

    • Danny Patten

      If they don’t get spotted or your staff doesn’t enter alert status you don’t get anything unless it is over^^

      • Really? Huh. On some internet resource I’ve read that the moment the attack starts is the moment you get notified. Good to know this then, thanks!

        • Danny Patten

          Well, I just draw the conclusion from my infiltrations. Every time I was spotted a player was joining quickly afterwards. Then complete stealth attemps went by totally unnoticed. There was no radio chatter going or anything.

          • Gatsu

            Yes I think the notification to other player comes only after being spotted. It gives some sort of head start to the invader which is nice, but it can be hard to pull total stealth infiltration if have lots of guards and security devices :).

          • Danny Patten

            Yea it gets impossible at one point. I only raid low level FOBs to farm materials and Soldiers. My Security Team is like level 52 now which I think is solid.

    • Gatsu

      I went to defend once, but then got disconnected. But havent played them very much yet so I can’t say. I’ve gotten 2 notification of invading happening though.

  • Something nice I made today, inspired by a friend.

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    too late for me ,I beat mission 29 with Quiet, and a problem donΒ΄t let me start the game, I backup in a flash drive my data and erase it for good of the console .reinstall game and patch 1.01 load data and make sure of had my ps4 online so the game conect to konami servers even if no conect they let me start and continue even if I go offline while game run. only once in another mission the game crash , restart and donΒ΄t loose progress, and a eternal loading screen after QuietΒ΄s torture scene, close game restart and rerun the scene but after a normal loading time I continue. 52% missions 1-35 and 40 and a lot of side ops

  • AeroGre

    I attacked someones fob yesterday and for some reason reflex was on i dont get it

    • N-Shifter

      Surely, you play by their rules if you’re attacking their base? That’s the only fair way to do it, it’s their base after all so they aren’t going to play by your rules πŸ™‚

  • FooXz

    Well, i got stuck at mission 40 with no other missions showing up. I waited a bit and then played the 2nd mission the (phantom limb i think it is), and then it popped.

  • korruption

    I did mission 29 multiple times, so I guess one of the things that triggers the bug is not sucking. =(

  • Ralexion

    I accepted the end, like when you accept the loss of someone, but I didnt like it that much. Dont hate it either, and I still loved the game (and im going for that 100% completion).

  • N-Shifter

    I “yolo’d” through mission 29 with Quiet last night, didn’t really have any choice but to proceed (due to the circumstances of what’s happening in the story at that point) and I wasn’t doing the mission without her.

    Needless to say, all is well and I’m now on mission 31 πŸ™‚

  • Jeremytroid

    Konami officially tweeted a solution: The issue can be prevented by keeping the butterfly symbol in your emblem OR keeping Quiet below maximum Bond level.

  • Ralexion

    Just used today Quiet for mission 29 and 42, c’mon, she is by far the most useful buddy for them. Nothing happened, so I guess im out of the woods. Backed my save files, of course (before trying).

    I have balls of steel?

    • THX, I will keep the assassination princess on-board and if my saves fuck up, I will wait for the fix KCE stated, yet another excuse for not finishing my holy new MGS.

      • Ralexion

        Use the Butterfly Emblem, it seems to be what saved me. Looks like its one of the things that prevents the bug from happening and I just happened to be using it.

        • THX for the advice, although some sources stated that using this emblem may interfere with the story at some point (not detailing because of potential spoiling).

        • AeroGre

          That emblem prevents more than just a gamebreaking bug

  • I haven’t experienced the issue for #29.
