  • ObsessedGeorge

    I’m very pleased to see it’s doing this great, espesially with all the controversies surrounding it. πŸ™‚

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Shows that we as fans prove our loyalty if you will.

      • MichaelPayneV

        When in reality, we are being played by the patriots!

        • Tom Brearley-Smith

          Played like a damn fiddle!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Exactly, this remind of a scene i saw in “Straight Outta Compton” when people we’re destroing hundred of coppies of their albun as a Protest, and Eazy came with the best respons “Doesn’t matter, they brought it!”

            Same here, no matter how much we say “F.. U” to Konami, for them it won’t matter, and you know why, we already brought it!

          • IM2PAC

            ROGER THAT!

          • MichaelPayneV

            Conclusion: We did it ourselves, with our own hands, just like Solid in MGS1, we activated Rex (Filled Konami’s Puckets) while trying to deactivate it (hurt them)

    • MichaelPayneV

      And so is Konami, which hurts, so bad…but still, saved my soul!

  • MichaelPayneV

    Off-Topoic…kinda
    Guess who won!

    Mr.Wolfe’s review of Metal Gear Solid V:The Phantom Pain:

    http://metagearsolid.org/2015/09/review-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain/

    • MichaelPayneV

      This review opened my eyes to a lot of missed oportunities, like not having the arm from the start, but earning it, earning back the ability to CQC, literally remebering the basics of CQC!

      Also, the horn in your head, they could have done A LOT more in the hallucination department than they have done!

      So far The Best Review for this Game!

      • GrayFoxWasTaken

        I think not having the arm when you go to rescue kaz would be really annoying and a certain story arch has an amazing twist that deals with hallucinations aswell as PTSD. Theres a perfectly kojima reason why we dont have to re learn CQC, but its spoilers.

        • MichaelPayneV

          I know, but still, shouldn’t we “find” the advanced arm, and start with just being able to hold a weapon?

          • GrayFoxWasTaken

            It could have been good, but it could have just as likely been a pain in the but and personally I think having the hook arm beyond the hospital would have pissed me off. They had 9 years to build you a robot arm, Id be kinda pissed they didnt think about it before i woke up

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,the review is awesome.I liked the review,especially those ideas Mr.Wolfe had,like not having a hand,haunting ghosts etc.They are cool IMO.

      • Was expecting a lot more hallucinations, I don’t think was any at all. I believe kojima said something along the lines of “you won’t know what’s real or not”. Everything was real. Even volgin.

        • Venom_Sina

          He lied to us in every moment before the release of TPP.So this “you won’t know what’s real or not” thing was a lie,too.I wonder Kojima/Konami departure is a lie or not.

        • gerber

          There is at least one event that is hallucination. I won’t tell you which onw because apparently you haven’t seen it yet

          • I’ve finished the game was it the Paz scenes?? Apart from that can’t really think of any hallucinations

    • No Place For Hayter

      OOOO! I have been waiting for this, he NAILED GZ, and the rest of the series, so I’m interested to see what he has to say.

      • Venom_Sina

        My favorite part is the “Spoiler” part!!! But I think in general,the review is fair.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Yeah, I really liked the review, the best review I’ve read. I know he can be a busy guy but I hope he does an in-depth analyzes, like he did with GZ, I want all the details about both the gameplay and story πŸ˜‰

  • anyone saw this cutscene in the game?? I just got the “TRUE” ending and I haven’t seen it yet…

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    Why do we call cut-scenes in video games cut-scenes? When i try to talk about cut scenes, i get worried people will think I mean cut-scenes… maybe i should switch to cinematic?

    • Venom_Sina

      You can use “removed-scenes/contents” instead of “cut-scenes”.I’m using this trick for a looong tiiiime!!!

  • Gatsu

    Glad to see TPP doing well πŸ™‚ .

    • Venom_Sina

      I think this is the second comment related to the news,lol.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah I thought it might be nice instead of commenting about cut content, missions or story for the millionth time lol xD .

    • Mario games always sell. πŸ™‚ Though considering the Wii U’s sales, it’s pretty good.

    • Well ofc its Mario πŸ˜€ Who doesn’t like Mario

    • IM2PAC

      “Hey Ezio its a me Mario” OOPS WRONG GUY

  • No Place For Hayter

    Lol, all four versions are up there in the top 25.

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    I got the ending, and I get it. Kojima you troll king I donΒ΄t know or love or hate, but is a great game with like no other.

  • vic boss

    Am I the only one that has the entire soundtrack of all the games in his phone ?

    • NameUndecided

      You are not! πŸ˜›

      I finally grabbed the Vocal Tracks collection this morning. So now I have all the soundtracks for MG 1-5, and for both portable games, the “Metal Gear Music Collection” (for the two 8-bit games) and the Red Disc (remixes of those games).

      It’s really nice to have, what seems to be, a full and complete collection of Metal Gear music. If I’m missing anything, I hesitate to want to hear about it.

      β™« SNAKE EAAATERRRRRR β™«

  • NameUndecided

    Can anyone please detail for me what’s on the Collector’s Edition blu ray disc?

    Is it all or most trailers and a making-of documentary? About how long is that extra material? I’ve tried searching online for specific comments after it’s been released, but I’m primarily just seeing articles about that “missing chapter” portion that I don’t want to read about just yet.

    I’m trying to avoid spoilers. So I’m even trying to not too much browse the comments on this site, just yet. But if anyone can comment on how substantial the content on that bluray disc is, I would really appreciate it! πŸ˜€

    • vic boss

      4 trailers gdc 2013, e3 2013, 2014 and 2015, reactions of famous people , Troy Baker, Kiefer Sutherland , Guillermo del toro and more . That one lasts for 33 min and the cutscenes for episode (mission 51) it lasts for about 15 min.

      • NameUndecided

        Ahh. Thank you for the quick answers! I really was hoping for a substantial documentary like the one that came in with MGS4.

        The Legacy / interviews portion may even just be the same or a longer version of what they officially posted on YouTube(?), so the only more-or-less “unique” part of that bluray is the Mission 51 talking-about?

        It still might be worth seeking out, for me. It was the only part of the CE that I cared about but didn’t feel was worthwhile by itself.

        • vic boss

          Yeah the legacy interviews are more or less the same of what they posted on YouTube, only longer.

          Yeah for me the arm and the steelbook, although the arm is rather small but its fine.

        • No Place For Hayter

          Same here, I it was the only thing I wanted from the CE and I was hoping for some behind the scenes etc, but nothing. It turns out though that the arm is REALLY awesome I could stare at that thing all day, that being said the arm alone isn’t worth the asking price.

          • NameUndecided

            Oh I know I wouldn’t mind having that arm if I just *had* to have it in my possession. I’ve already been nerding out, looking through the non-spoiling parts of my hardcover guide book almost every day. And I can just imagine I’d be using that arm to clumsily flip through the pages if I could.

          • Tong Ninja

            Wait there’s no making of documentary for TPP??
            I loved the making of documentary for MGS4.

            I really want to see how they do the facial capture/motion capture scenes!
            Also see the actors/Kojima production talk about making the game as well. haha

    • No Place For Hayter

      Its contents are as follows.

      Metal Gear Solid Legacy – a video about a bunch of people talking about the history of MGS, not very long and not very important.

      4 Trailers – GDC 2013 – E3 2013 – E3 2014 – E3 2015.

      Phantom Episode – showcasing the cut mission (mission 51) from the game.

  • NakedSnake85

    81% completed
    s ranked all missions
    completed every side op..
    im so tired right now…

    • I’m 85% complete right nowCurrently trying to complete all tasks. I understand your pain haha

      • NakedSnake85

        duuuude the tasks ! i completed em on missions 1 to 9 but earlier i felt that i cant continue anymore at this pace..
        haha .. strange feeling..

        • Things definitely get easier with better equipment but its still very time consuming haha. I’m having fun though going back and trying new things is fucking great

          • NakedSnake85

            yep indeed. i allready got a lot of stuff.. so no problem ! im just tired ! haha. Tpp is a great game.. so many things going on !

      • NakedSnake85

        crimsonfox.. Tpp is a great game but do you to feel a little dissapointed ? im talking about the story. not the final part btw.. all the rest seems to me poorly executed

        • It’s very hard to make a game flow when it gives you the options to play anyway you want. It’s unfortunate some things got cut. But there were plenty of scenes in there I really enjoyed. A lot of the cassette tapes are awesome too.

          • NakedSnake85

            well i have my own thoughts about the story. i am dissapinted about many things concerning how the story unflods,, IMO its not the open world nature of the game that did that.. so many things feel out of place and all characters feel empty.. Also MB is empty.. Many chances missed. aw well still Tpp is the best game i ve ever played :). i guess we ll have plenty of time to discuss it when every one completes the game

          • Yeah there’s defiantly more to talk about, I’ll just say I thought Kaz was freaking awesome haha. It’s kind of hard to get into now without spoilers but. Kojima said he wanted to make a different game and he certainly did.

          • No Place For Hayter

            When I read “Kaz” and “freaking awesome” in the same sentence I only think of one scene, and that was awesome πŸ˜‰

          • hunner

            Miller was definitely my favorite character in this game.

      • No Place For Hayter

        The good part about the tasks is you don’t have to S rank so you can run around with infinite ammo and stealth camouflage πŸ™‚

        The worst tasks BY FAR are the “listen to these conversations” ones, they always break and take forever to do when they don’t lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      92% Right now, I know how you feel I like to leave the game running and leave for a few hours on occasion, my vacation ends tomorrow so my play time is about to go wayyyy down. That being said I’m locked out of getting 100% as one of my blueprints disappeared and I have to wait for a patch to fix it before I can pick it up.

      • NakedSnake85

        i expected nonthing less from the mighty “no place for hayter” πŸ˜€

        • No Place For Hayter

          Lol, a vacation REALLY frees your time up, lol.

  • Janeo

    Surprised Mario isn’t at the top spot, it’s a really great game and I do suck at Mario but my brothers are really good so it’s a lot of fun to watch them do ridiculously hard levels, the game is a dream come true for Mario fans just like this metal gear is a dream come true for us. I just finished chapter 1 yesterday after 70 hours of gameplay, I’m really taking this game slow doing a lot of side ops and also a lot of fob infiltration since I unlocked the mode, I really love that online mode and even when the player doesn’t turn up on their base you still really wanna best them but it’s a great feeling when you get past a player and their soldiers to get in his base. I never played too much metal gear online but I’m really looking forward to it this time, this game just has an amazing amount of content.

  • stocchinet .

    So developing a nuke actually does something in therms of story? Or i’m just wasting resources? I’m at mission 43 no spoiler please

  • Gatsu

    Just a friendly reminder again to all, that you can freely talk about spoilers in the forum’s Ending Spoiler thread. Some got the game way later, so can’t discuss all on this side yet, unless we get some specific article.

  • Raven_Sorrow

    Hello, broooothers. I’m back, just finished the story so I’m not afraid of begin spoiled anymore xD I want more! And am I the only one that is bummed you can’t choose your allies in FOB’s? Well guess we’ll team up on MGO πŸ˜‰ Missed you guys soo much

    • kirtanloorii

      Welcome back!

    • Tong Ninja

      Welcome! πŸ˜€

      So …. without any spoilers did you like the game overall?? haha

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Gameplay-wise, still drooling over it, yet feels like something is missing. Story-wise, it is a good one, but rushed like hell at the end! And a certain someone could have appeared :V Shame it is not a finished masterpiece.. Kojima’s own 10th symphony…

  • hunner

    MGS V and Mad Max releasing on the same day was a really stupid decision by both companies. One of them should of changed there release date. Still glad that mgs v is getting good sales

    • BurntFM

      I agree. MGSV should have been pushed back so Kojima could have finished the game. lol I joke I joke…..Maybe ;P

      • AeroGre

        You know whats funny, although its been said before that theres like no DLC being planned for this game, MGS5 seems set up well enough to add additional content such as weapons/items/non-story related missions.

        • Mr.Pony

          Konami seems to be in a rush to get out of the console business, so I would be surprised if they went down that path. A longer shot than that would be to release what was cut through a patch since Kojima is only leaving in December.

          • AeroGre

            Nah, Konami released a statement saying they aren’t leaving consoles

    • GrayFoxWasTaken

      Not a stupid decision, this is completely normal in the industry.

    • Tong Ninja

      To be honest I actually wouldn’t have minded MGSV being pushed back an extra 3-6 months for the game to be released. πŸ™‚

      Love coming here and talking with this community! haha

  • James Raskalov

    I completed the main story 3 days after release. Got close to 70% 7 days after release.

    Then my save data corrupted.

    I’m back, and I’m miserable after working my ass off to reclaim what I lost.

    Come to think of it, the loss of my save data is a horrible metaphor.

    • Danny Patten

      But didnt they say that they would fix corrupted saves with the latest patch?
      I mean you’ve done it by yourself now but I think they said that.

      • James Raskalov

        Well, I didn’t really hear anything about that before I restarted. I only learned yesterday.

  • Mr.Pony

    Hey, you guys want a silenced rocket launcher? Of course you do, follow this then or take revenge on those who used it already against you (I haven’t tried it myself nor do I know if this does or does not crash the game) https://www.reddit.com/r/metalgearsolid/comments/3kucpk/the_ol_silenced_100round_rocket_launcher/cv0rpcw?context=3
