    Cool!

  • Greyfox98

    That’s pretty awesome

  • IM2PAC

    This is why I love fan service?

  • Gatsu

    Looks very detailed and amazing. I wonder how much 38k yen was in euros.

    • Just under 300.

      • Gatsu

        Alrighty, thanks :).

        • Romain Robin

          Mind trick: Usually for yen>euro, just remove 2 zeroes from the amount of diminish it a bit in your mind 🙂
          1 Euro is usually 1.2 yen.
          So 12 000 yen = 100 €. Roughly. Just so it gives you an idea 🙂

  • stocchinet .

    It’s….It’s….It’s glorious!

  • umbralex

    Damn… that’s too much money for a figure, just like the 3A’s of REX and RAY 🙁

  • Full Options

    Boy, this bot rocks !

  • Golgari

    Amazing.

  • muaddib

    Guess i’ll have to build a real-sized functional Sahelanthropus, steal money from a bank (and destroying it), just to buy this toy.

    • IM2PAC

      You’ll be wasting money

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Hey look ! A final unfinished Boss . Thanks konami

    • IM2PAC

      Thanks for rushing it cuntami

  • Godmars

    Why is this, a mech developed in the 70s, coming off as being more advanced than Ray, which was made at least ten years later?

    • Gatsu

      Smarter developers.

    • Javier

      It always happens with prequels.

    • Aiman Ghazi Mohammad

      we never saw was rex was capable of, rex has nearly IDENTICAL designs with that of sahelanthropus, but a little bigger than sahelanthropus, most likely rex could stand upright as well, but we never got to see it

    • No Place For Hayter

      Prequel syndrome. Every prequel MGS after 3 has it, lol.

  • Victor Medeiros Coelho

    Nice… the US dolar is costing 4,00 times brazilian currency right now…. i hate this country…. where can i sign for the Diamond Dogs? Please?

    • Venom_Sina

      Good for you.Every dollar is like 3400x of my country’s money,lol.So I’m in a deeper shit,lol.

    • Jonatas Praxedes

      Yeap. Lets go partner. brbrbrbr. Srly, 300 USD x 4(for now) +60% taxes= 1920 reais= 480 USD

  • Javier

    I wanted to fight it in his regular form first and then the new.
    Konami is still looking for people for a new Metal Gear. It wont be difficult for it to have a better story and ending than V.

    • Cobra Commander

      #1 They should have never shown the trailer that ruined the Sahelanthropus surprise
      #2 We should have fought/met Sahelanthropus in his “Rex” form. It would have made the upright transformation a truly “Holy Shit” moment.
      That’s how I feel anyway.

      • Javier

        Fucking trailers. You are right in everything.

  • BurntFM

    I admit that I’ve spent collectively more than $1,000 over the years buying Gundam GunPla kits. I’m a sucker for Mechs but I don’t think I can justify $300+ on one figure. No matter how awesome it is. I’ll just stick to looking at the pictures thank you.

  • Volf

    Looks incredible. Gotta love that detail!

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Off-Topic:

    Notcie how snake DOESN’T SAY A SINGLE WORD in these 13 mins LOL, this bitch has not personality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO9YimZy1YA

    • Venom_Sina

      “What a mess he(Kojima) made,when he developed V” (w/Mike Oldfield’s voice) LOL

      Wouldn’t you agreeeeeeee?! (see 1:13)

      • FoxTamerMGO

        Yeah lol that part made me laugh a bit.

        • Venom_Sina

          This whole scene is a joke.Bad use of Sins of the Father,snake without tongue,weird hand gestures of Skull Face,bad time for a speech.Also you didn’t know anything about Skull Face and his plans…until now,and then SF bombard you with his objective,lol.Where is character developing in this game?

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Let me show you my tiny analysis and i’m free open on insults :
            – Nice predictive ending since 2012-2013 ( With horrible pacing and script )
            – No character development
            – No bosses with legendary moments
            – False advertising on MB( 2 open doors no free animal walking and no inside base)
            – No comparable to sons of liberty ( This game has soul ; script and meaning )
            – No real outer heaven scenes / Zanzibar land
            – No gameplay triumph
            – No mission 51
            – No chapter 3
            – No third location
            – No Tomokazu-fukushima Writter
            – No Harry grengson – williams sound direction
            – Chapter 2 is an endless of repetitive missions , boring side quest and empty world

            This game isn’t metal gear is just a Phantom of the franchise

          • Venom_Sina

            – False advertising on MB
            I remember Mr.Eyestone said MB will be exciting and full of secrets.I wanna ask him:Where is that exciting thing you talked about?For me,MB was SHOWER,lol.

            They lied about everything and it wasn’t fun.Sometimes I feel the game was a hardsell.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            1: Fulton and jumping on conteiner in base – False
            2- Sheep on mother base walking around – False
            3- Characters interaction on Mother base – False
            4- Own world inside base ( Yhea shoting range all over the place)
            5-Walking gear ( an amazing tank with the greatest fox engine cutscene for what ? yes for nothing just deploying on Scout mission – False

            i can talk all day , then again people who are blind will never see the truth

          • Venom_Sina

            Also they said the animals have some use.Where is that use?(I’m not sure about this one,maybe there are some use for some animals)

            3- Characters interaction on Mother base:About this one.You can punch them in the face and you can fulton them.It’s really exciting (sarcasm),lol.

          • muaddib

            There is use, like throwing a bait in an row of enemies. Some wild animals should appear, like wolfs or bears, causing a distraction like Farcry 3. Sheeps can block the way of cars, though it didn’t happened for me. Maybe there other things i don’t know

          • Venom_Sina

            Thanks for the info.So what about the animals you extracted?

          • muaddib

            Oh, i’ve extracted a lot (i’m with 52%). I don’t bother capturing birds or little animals, mainly sheeps, goats, zebras, donkeys, canidaes, bears, etc.
            I’ve captured 3 legendary animals, the bear, the ibis and the jackal.

          • muaddib

            The only little animal i bothered myself to capture was the oriental rattlesnake, just to make my emblem.

          • Venom_Sina

            I’m sorry.I think I couldn’t make my point,lol.I meant what about the animals the player extracts?I mean the animals in MB.Is there a use for them in MB?

          • muaddib

            Ohhhh, yes…
            No, not that i know of.

          • muaddib

            MB is dissapointing.
            I remember in the first gameplay you could encounter Ocelot randomically, but some time after, they said Miller and Ocelot would walk alongside you. In the final product, nothing.
            Snake interacting with the soldies is like a college bully beating some masoquists colleagues. They salute to you and can stand in front of you forever.
            Actually, DD soldies looks like a bunch of kids, dumb kids. It’s terrible.
            Yeah, there is no tabboo, no “shocking scene”. Maybe it was a tabboo for the MGS fans (the fans), but…
            Damn, i love this game (even the ending), but the false advertising in everything fucked up.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            Kojima could have went multiple routes with the story where it can be much better.. He picked one of the worst routes he could have went with the story.
            – The whole story with quiet wasn’t interesting to me to be honest.. i mean.. she fell in love with snake? DAFUQ? the man who didn’t even talk to her once? they didn’t even have a full conversation together. How can she just LOVE him blindly?.
            – The whole story with Huey and his betrayal also wasn’t interesting.. We discovered that he ws a maniac then Venom Snake sends him off.. end of Huey’s story.
            – The whole story with Eli wasn’t as good as i expected.
            – Skull Face was a great character, he was supposed to be the real villain of the story but guess what? he gets killed by Eli spiritually controlling Sahelanthropus. What a disappointment.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I think your comment will be erased in some minutes for spoilers but i agree on many things. Is not about the story and the ending itself ( any fan with a little of deeper reflection will understand the meaning ) The issue : the real issue is on the way it was created and the whole horrible climax and pacing it has

      • JJBYACH

        Skullface’s dialogue and acting was perfect (for MGS) he was so out of place and hammy, it reminded me of MGS1 and 2 horrendous dialogue, I wish we saw him more and he had more dialogue in that vein.
        “WHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”

        “BROOOOOTHHHHHHAAAAAA”

        “LIIIIIQUUUUUIIIIIDDDD”

        Kojima loves theatrics.

        • Venom_Sina

          Some moments it was good,but not perfect.Wouldn’t you agreeeeeeee?!LOL

          • JJBYACH

            It was perfect for MGS, otherwise it would be horrible. Yet I still can’t help but feel sorry for him.
































  • FoxTamerMGO

    Wow i can’t say my personal opinion about snake in this forum? ;/

    • Venom_Sina

      Such a lust for deleting comments…WHOOOOOOOOO?!LOL

      • FoxTamerMGO

        LOL Goddammit, that joke almost killed me xD

        • Venom_Sina

          Damn,I’m on a roll,baby,lol

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            The phantom pain : How you can change an amazing misterious and dark antagonist in a cartoonish skull who dance and Say Whooooo in a blink of an eye

          • Venom_Sina

            This guy and his goal was really good.He could’ve been one of the best villains in the entire MGS franchise.But they didn’t develop his character really well.Also bad acting in some moments really affected the character.Seriously what is this?”WHOOOOOOO?”or this one:”Wouldn’t you agreeeeeeee?!”.The way James Horan say these lines is really funny.So,developers made fun of him,why not me?!

      • Gatsu

        lol

      • hahhahahah

  • Gatsu

    I miss the times before release. Back then it was fun to read articles and comments, but now they’re just filled with story and characters bashing of the game lol. So damn depressing. Am I the only one who feels this :(?

    Also folks below, as you know don’t write spoilers. Yeah I know…many of us finished the game a long time ago, but there are some who still haven’t and if happen to visit this site while playing, might get spoiled. So please, think about others while commenting. Nyx will inform when can do it freely, but not yet because it’s a long game :).

    • JJBYACH

      I feel you. Criticism is always fine when valid and driven by objective facts, but most of the criticisms seem to reek with biased hate generated by disappointment, it’s understandable but annoying to read the same circle jerk again and again.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah I guess it’s understandable, but still annoying haha ;D…

        • JJBYACH

          It seems my cynicism payed of in the long run. Kojima has had a history of promising features that never make it into the retail game – mix that with the Kojima vs Konami debacle, the current state of the gaming industry, the preview articles back in June and finally the reviews, I had my expectations in check, but with that being said to alot of people this game delivered in spades, and being optimistic is a healthy way to live your life – but at least now people will be more cautious about getting hyped about pre-release footage, even if it is from our Lord Kojima-San.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Is not about promising featurues either, you have to see the real deal. i’m okay with people praising the game but when i trow some objetive points and seem many users like superbunny shop got in his las video gets cold by trying to answer his thoughts or just complain about why we ” dind’t like ” Tpp .

            Metal gear solid fans where waiting a product by Metal gear solid Standar quality is not about elegia trailer , is not about kojima and other trailers saying the final conclusion to the franchise , ” everything will be tide up “. Is just for many folks this product, this game fails in many things where every single metal gear has won . In fact ground zeroes is still a Metal gear solid at 100% of his score . i know you and i will be difficult to think in the same way . The river is already divided. Just saying i do not agree about your whole Expectation theory

          • N-Shifter

            This is what I’m talking about, you were on here yesterday saying the same thing talking about “superbunnyhop” (whoever that is?) and what was expected and what was given………..we get it, do we need to hear it all again? You;re like a dog with bone, you found something and you’re just digging your teeth in, LET. IT. GO.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Let it go ? Why ? im just doing a logical response about a subject that i think is not right You in the other hands just hate some people saying stuff you don’t want to hear. You are trying to sound mature but you know is Childish . So chillout , if you don’t like my comment just pass by . Please grown up really

          • N-Shifter

            I’m not trying to sound mature, I’m old enough to have played every Metal Gear game when they were actually released. You on other hand seem to make yourself feel better by telling people in multiple articles how disappointed you are. We get it, we really do.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            No i don’t agree .I’m is just telling a perspective of the game, so deal with it

          • N-Shifter

            And we’ve heard it multiple times, that’s what I’m talking about, we know already so can we please stop beating a dead horse?
            Peace.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I just read (whoever that is ) lol No need for comments . Did you ever metal gear ? I think you missed the link of Fallout forums . Go and learn 1 thing or two about Metal gear

          • N-Shifter

            Do you honestly think that because I don’t know who some random person on the internet named “superbunnyhop” is that I don’t know anything about Metal Gear?!?! That’s one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever read and I’ve read some really dumb statements.

          • JJBYACH

            I’m not focusing on the more arbitrary “ugh Kojima made these trailers so good but why the game be so bad” side of the discussion, but the expectations that came with this game being a sequel. With the series track record there was no thought of this game not being up to scratch: the time line the game was set in was the ones that fans were frothing from the mouths over, everyone wanted to see the story of BB becoming the villain, no marketing promises or trailers involved every fan knew about this part of the lore and wanted to see it explored, the thing is we were already sold on the idea of the game based on the premise alone, we were hyped, and with hype comes high expectations. To make matters worse the marketing material be it intentional or not groomed that hype, showed us what we wanted to see, we even got to play the prologue of the game and we loved it. Surely the game couldn’t be bad. The issue was never just the marketing material, it was the idea, it aimed at the sun and ended up delivering the moon, people got upset about that, and then it slowly turned into biased hate. Ask yourself, why don’t you like the game? Because it doesn’t live up to the expectations held by the previous games, doesn’t live up to the promise inherent in the artistic vision itself, doesn’t live up to the promises and footage showed to us to help convey that vision before release? We all have biases but the most difficult part is to separate that from our logic processing in order to generate a fair conclusion.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah I agree. It gets me thinking though, it is not fair or nice to throw away other peoples opinion because you think they don’t like it because they had expectations. I for one judge TPP solely on what it is, not by what I thought it was going to be, but my opinion often gets thrown to the dogs because people don’t even care because in there minds anyone who doesn’t think like them is blinded by expectations and aren’t actually presenting any worthy ideas or facts. I wouldn’t throw away a good opinion of TPP because “They are blinded by being dumb fanboys” as that would be wrong and not fair, and yet it seems to be the common attitude to do that exact thing to people whom don’t like the game. It has gotten to the point where I can’t even talk about what I thought because I will be harshly judged and my opinion and thoughts when even be given a basic respect and people don’t even read what I say and half bake it to make me look like I’m wrong despite me not stating I was “right” in the first place but that it was simply my opinion. It doesn’t matter whether you like the game or not, but at least those of us whom didn’t like it aren’t being assholes to those whom do. I thought people were more open minded 🙁

            It is kind of depressing, TPP had a terrible story to me, but I explained why and moved on, but what I’m dwelling on and and can make me depressed and angry is the people online whom I thought better of (not talking specific here as, lol, I can’t think of anyone specific, but the community feels different you know? I don’t feel like I’m welcome here anymore simply because I have a different opinion) *Sigh* talking about the game and the communities are having a harder impact on me than the game did.

          • JJBYACH

            Yeah, everyone had expectations to an extent but the amount that effected their opinions varied from person to person, and each of those opinions are valid in their own right, it just irritates me when biases gets shoved into th mix. I guess I am just tired of the constant circle-jerking of negative opinions happening here and everywhere. I read the comments on Yong’s review and now I can’t unsee them.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Agreed, there is a point where it is pointless biased complaining, just wanted to sort of draw a line for myself, I do see what you mean.

          • Tong Ninja

            Woah you’re back! 😀
            I missed that David Hayter Profile Picture in the comment section of the articles …. haha

            I thought it was been said numerous times that if anyone wants to talk about TPP story or content wise, go to the forums because Nyxus and many others still haven’t finished the game yet … then Nyxus can put up an article in the near future and everyone can talk about TPP. 🙂

            I feel kind of sorry for Nyxus, he is just putting up current Metal Gear news/articles but all I see is conflict in the comments section (from both sides) for the past 2 weeks. haha
            It’s been scaring away regular commenters as well.
            Also several people have been spoiled already because people keep talking about the story.

            I’ve been commenting as best as I can about topics that are relevant to the articles. Try to cheer up Nyxus. 😀

            With regards to opinions, I’m cool with people not liking the game. 🙂
            Everyone thinks differently or has different interpretations. haha

          • Gatsu

            Yeah Nyx and others still haven’t finished :C. I try my best to keep spoilers away with my mod brothers, but sometimes things can slip past me. Just a little longer and can be free. ..

            Btw NP4H took over the forums with his wisdom haha 😉 ! I’m cool with everyones opinions too, sometimes I can sound like a b*tch if have a not so good day at work etc lol. But I try keep my comments ok and be open minded with different views of the game. 😀

          • No Place For Hayter

            Good to be back, been busy lately, lol. It will all cool down in time, I just hope no one gets bitter and holds onto anything that happens >.<

      • RJRO

        The cycle of revenge it´s what truly bind this world as one.

    • N-Shifter

      I agree, the circle jerk of bashing has made me visit this place less. Every time I go to read a new article I go down to the comments (which used to be fun) and now it’s just people that have told us a million times that they are disappointed…we get it, move on with your life.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        So you can comment about how you love the phantom pain every single time but when someone make a proper analysis they are jerks ? Wow . what a great way to think about been a Metal gear solid Fan .Hypocrism at it best . In the real world people discuss , people talk and share thought . If everyone will be agree on everyting on society : war will never be a thing . So maybe you people have to think twice and grow up a little

        • N-Shifter

          An I assume “adult” is on the internet crying daily about a game and you’re telling me to “grow up”? Now that’s funny.

          • No Place For Hayter

            To me it is more about sharing the thoughts about what you care, about if we didn’t care about MGS we wouldn’t be talking about it on the internet, but it certainly isn’t fair or realistic or understanding to expect or only accept positive thoughts, everyone is going to have a different opinion, I thought everyone understood that already?

            Talking about your hobby you care about online does not mean “get on with your life” you are greatly misunderstanding the kinds of people whom do the things you are talking about.

            Also while I do agree with you to an extent, naive language like “on the internet crying daily about a game” does really make you come across far less mature than he was acting. It is rude and retarded to be on the internet and only accept certain kinds of opinions and crap on the rest.

            Honestly everyone was fine with everyone’s opinion before but suddenly with the release of TPP everyone is pseudo factual, and over entitled while not understanding others again, I’m surprised is that all it takes is one game to tear people apart, I don’t have a problem with people whom liked the story in TPP but it seems everyone has a problem with me disliking it? Nobody would complain if everyone was none stop talking about how good the game was, but now because it is something you personally don’t want to hear or don’t agree with that makes it a bad thing and wrong, this isn’t the case.

            Some like it some don’t but we will all express what we feel about it as we all care about it, why can’t we all just get along?

          • hunner

            Agree. If you like or hate mgs just give a valid reason why and it’s fine by me

          • Tong Ninja

            90% of fans hate MGS4 ??
            That’s a lot of people! XD maybe a little too exaggerated …

            Guess me and you are in that 10% then. I liked MGS4 as well. 🙂

          • Full Options

            One of my friends, a real MGS2 fanatic (like european extrem’d it, eyes blind :D) could not stick at all with MGS4… I tried my best but nothing could reason him… 🙁 Fortunately, I plugged him on MGSV too and he is really still f.ckn amazed… I do not want to let him know what’s discussed here… 😉 @Gats, if you read that… 😀

          • Tong Ninja

            haha I see. It’s okay if your friend doesn’t like MGS4. Everyone has their own preferences. 🙂
            He’s missing out on all the beautiful ass shots of Old Snake 😉 hahaha

            XD Yeah probably not the best idea to let him see the discussions on this site. haha
            MGSV is fun and addicting though!

            BTW, I miss in V the slow manta-wave like way to crawl on the ground in MGS4 (but I largely made myself a reason ;)… That was hell of stealth style !

          • Gray Lion

            One of my top 3 epic boss battles ever takes place in MGS4 – Old Snake vs Ocelot. That battle blew my mind out of sheer awesomeness back then and still does it now x)

          • N-Shifter

            I take issue with the fact that he’s been brainwashed by someone else’s point of view, he said it was one of the best games of his life a matter of days ago and now he’s on here every day bashing it with the same script and dropping the name of some random internet you tuber or something..
            That bothers me and yes, it bother me more than it should for a man of my age but for god’s sake, he loved the game (that was his pure feelings on the game) but now people have convinced him that it was garbage and now he’s spreading someone else’s thoughts.
            I am totally okay with people not liking the game, I know it’s not perfect and I’ve never said it was but going from loving it to hating it due to other peoples interpretation bothers me.

          • hunner

            Joaquin used to like mgs v?

          • N-Shifter

            Yes, he really did.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Seems you forget i already talk about it . It was 10 minutes after i finished the game and my Fanboy soul get out of control by just to trying to be happy. The lie wasn’t there more than 1 hour and like i said each day i saw my reality . Try to be a better person and see the big picture becouse i’m not said nothing about you regardless tpp . Don’t start a fight without reason

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Trust me when i said this : I’m not proud by feeling like this , is not about i want to be dissapointed , is not about i don’t see the meaning behind Phantom pain story . This game every day it past shows me how brakes and Anti- Metal gear for me is . i’m been 100% honest. i will love to say Tpp is my best game of all time or at least i liked but i just can’t lied to myself or rather think in a different way . It’ wasnt about Extreme Hype .It wasn’t about cut content . Is just the game itself . Everything feels wrong and even if i try to remember the amazing things like Chapter 1 or “The Opening sequence ” it does not help at all . Is a truly Phantom pain disorder . Sorry Hunner I’m a fan like you or anyone else

          • hunner

            Fine by me. You’re actually one of the few people on the internet that ive seen give valid complaints

          • No Place For Hayter

            Ah, I see what you mean. Peoples opinion can change, even drastically (though this even surprises me, as on the internet changing someones opinion can only be done by themselves over time, lol) but I see what you mean 🙂

        • Gatsu

          Not sure was this directed at me, but it’s just how I feel honestly. If go read past articles, maybe 90% of comments are negative. It’s not fun to me.

          But ppl are free to discuss anything of course except spoilers for now. I’m not a kid btw.

    • October 1st is when everyone can talk about the game freely.

      • MichaelPayneV
      • Gatsu

        Ok :).

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        At least I got the twist spoiled for me already, more concerned about other late game missions. Time to race to the end! 🙂

      • hope you do an article on that Nyx, i would like to read your opinion on the game

      • IM2PAC

        WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      I would really like to inspect MGO magic patch before making myself a definitive opinion, and also see a little more communication from them (like wait and see mode) in these following weeks. 🙂
      There are too much weird factors in presence (and knowing how jester H can be xD), all this does not sound tuned like real, if you see what I am talking about. ;), since HK is still in Konami’s walls, hehe…

    • No Place For Hayter

      Well I feel what you mean, feel the same way, but for a different reason 😉

    • The Reaver

      As someone who hasn’t beaten the story yet, the negativity about the game that comes from this MGS fan site is really bumming me out. So far, I can’t find any reason to be disappointed in the game at all but now I’m scared that I’ll somehow suddenly start hating it by the time I’m finished, judging by other folks’ drastic 180 opinions on it.

      It’s strange to think it but it seems even just knowing what other people think about the game can affect how I feel while I’m playing it. Like I’ll feel like I’ll be wrong or something if I love it all the way to the end because other people hate it.

      • Gatsu

        It was the same for me when I played, hang in there and try not to let it destroy your feels what others say :).

        I waited this amazing game 3 years and watched trailers nonstop. I chose not to let the story or anything else make me disappointed. I know how to accept it and even if some part of the game is something many hate for reasons, it should not change your mind from loving it to hating it. The game is imo still very amazing.

        I think that all these negative thoughts brainwashed some fans lol. I just don’t get it how some can REALLY hate it from the bottom of their heart, after waiting to play it so bad. Maybe I’m stupid if don’t understand it.
        It has never really happened to me with game I’ve hyped. Imo we should try enjoy what Kojima gave us and be happy with it. It’s his last Metal Gear after all. I’m interested to see if opinions change as time goes on.

        • PsychoMantis18

          “I chose not to let the story or anything else make me disappointed”.
          That right there is self-induced brain-washing.

          You should only rate something based on its own merits, not on external influences.
          This is the nature of the fanboy. Evolve from it!

          • Gatsu

            Well it helps lol. A lot of fans hate the game because it’s not something they want. Should rate it for what it is even if it’s mgs. It’s amazing imo despite the ending etc.

            I shall not evolve.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah it is a bad thing when something is judged by expectations, but unfortunately my negative opinion of TPP’s story isn’t influenced by expectations, lol 🙁

            Can’t evolve? I understand, third evolution right? lol.

          • Gatsu

            I’m sometimes really bad with words sorry so can’t explain myself well in English xD…. 🙁

      • Javier

        Finish it and see. Dont expect what koj promises to us.

      • No Place For Hayter

        Don’t worry, with opinion there is no right or wrong 🙂 even if you are the only person on the planet whom likes something you are not “wrong” in any way (you might have a big problem though, lol, but there is no right or wrong in opinions) there are points to hate and points to love it is all about what points stick out for you and drive your opinion of the game, alas I have been driven by the bad points, and that is simply my opinion formed from my experience, yours will be driven by your opinion and your experience.

        The negativity is actually a bit of a good thing for people whom haven’t finished it as it will eat away any huge expectations that the player may have and that way when they reach the end it isn’t judged by expectations instead it will be mostly driven by the expereince with the game and story itself leading to two different things “This is awesome what is wrong with them?” or “They are right this is crap”, lol.

        And yeah any negativity will be after you finish all the story and most of the gameplay, the problems for me won’t rear their ugly heads until end game due to the nature of peoples complaints, that being said keep your head held high and play and enjoy what you can, your opinion is yours 🙂

  • CR7HarisSnake

    Just thought of doing a new tattoo… Nah rather this masterpiece

  • at last! i’m back brothers, i finished the game yesterday, it took me more time than i expected since i didn’t have as much free time as i thought, but after 70 or 80 hours i’m done with the story

    • Venom_Sina

      Welcome back,brother.So how was the experience.I think you liked it:)

      • pretty good! though there are mixed feelings. i think is probably the best gameplay ever on a metal gear game, it’s really very fun to play. on the other hand there’s the stuff with the story, i can’t say i hate it nor i can say i love it, i think it becomes obvious at the end that konami put a lot problems on the creation of this game and i think that all of us gotta admit the flaws on the game, it’s hard to put a blind eye on that, i’m really looking forward to all of us discusing the game properly, there’s lots to say and i don’t want to ruin the experience for everyone that’s still playin. though i only want to clarify that IMO the problems don’t come from kojima’s direction at all.

    • Gatsu

      Good to have you back ^_^.

      • thanks bro c: was looking forward to catch up with you

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    Spoilers : A real ending for the fans . He made a pretty good job.
    Listen with any original Metal gear solid Song and it blows your mind :

      This would have been great, I agree.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        The art is great too =)

        • N-Shifter

          Yup, I visualised it as a cut scene as I was reading/looking at it 🙂

    • hunner

      My god that would of been the greatest ending of all time. It would of been even better if an old D Dog layed down with Big Boss while they both waited for the inevitable 🙁

  • Joaquin Romero Victorica

    This is something you wouldn’t see many times but i been honest : My best game of this generation is P.T Demo Silent hills . It has everything the Mgsv lacks even if we are talking about other genre and no open world game

    1)Amazing psychological meaning 2) Brakes the 4 wall in a perfect sense and it has one of the most memmorable horror dialogues in the video gaming industry . There is a real interaction between the story and the gamer. Using your Dualshock controller by calling Jaridth is something we didn’t see anymore on The metal gear solid franchise ( It was some Pshycho mantis Horror experience that drag me inside kojimas’s nightmare ) The opening and ending is just perfect and of course was free.

    The phantom pain was a disappointment for me like many read more than 3940 and i will stop here so you can see more happy comments =) but at least we got an horror masterpiece to remember from years to come

    • Thanks.
      I was wondering when you would get bored of complaining.

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        I could anwser you in a good way but seems you are a little salty . i will not responde to you anymore

        • Just like you ignored my comment in the last article? Sounds good

          Come on… MGO is not out yet and even if you don’t want to play MGO, at least wait for some interventions from HK before getting totally disappointed (or not). What will be his answers to your expectations too ? We must wait to have his bell ring, info on what’s next, etc… Whether HK will be bound to KCE or not at the end of this year, this making of is going to kick ass, even if it is only declarations from him about what exactly happened.
          But again, the product is not yet 100% released… So keep believing in the legend for at least the next 2 month.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            Metal gear solid was pure driven story for me since i played the first one 15 years ago but yes i truly hope everyone have a blast with the online . Anyway we still have old masterpiece to play and enjoy =) . I starting today Soma and i feel very confident about what i read . Frictional games are great XD

            I started to play the first one 28 years ago, (was 14). I owe him my confidence like forever whatever the bullshit he could do but he never did any… It is far to be finished, what excites me is that things are always just beginning as usual.

          • Gatsu

            Wow, you started to play them way before I did :O… /salute 😉 !

            😉 Rest, Soldier 😀 my MSX was a Canon V-20. My MSX2 was a Philips NMS 8220. Never owned any 2+… 🙁

            We were ordering all that by mail (computer + games) via a french magazine named “Micro News” to a Paris (I leave in Nice, southern France, ~800 km from Paris) market named “Maubert Electronique Boutique”.

            My dad was also bringing me cartridges from Japan. Some of them had their text in Japanese, but was ok for shoot em ups (such a Nemesis -aka Gradius) or simple stuff like that. Fortunately the version of MG I grabbed in Paris was translated in english (probably in UK, can’t remember).

            We were saving on cassette tapes. There was external diskette reader but never owned any for MSX.
            I remember that the time to backup progression with MG was around 30 sec. Average games if on cassettes were taking 5 to 10 min to load whereas the load was immediate with rom cartridge… There was also a way to copy rom cartridge games on cassette tapes… ;D Boooo, not good ! Bad kid ! Bad !

            I would have loved to have other franchises like Knightmare (Maze of Galious was awesome), Treasure of Usas or Antartic + Penguin adventure, chosen by Konami to pursue like MG was… Vampire Killer was also one of “chosen”. Was renamed Castlevania later on…

            All these games had also dozens of fantastic musics. I always wondered how they managed to stuff all that in averagely 128k. I also wondered how hard it could be to code their game at this time since they did not have google to ask when they were stuck with their machine code !? xD
            These guys are geniuses !

    • Tong Ninja

      The cockroaches were so realistic in P.T.! haha
      Very unfortunate that Silent Hills was cancelled.

      • Gatsu

        The cancellation was most sad news in game industry.

    • Gatsu

      I’m glad I still have my PT :). It indeed is the best horror experience I’ve had perhaps ever. I felt similar feelings when I played Resident Evil 1 or Silent Hill 1 when I was young. I never thought some game would give me that feeling again ;D.

      Have you seen the demo footage of Allison Road :)? It looks great and takes inspiration from PT, but I don’t remember the developers names. Check it out in youtube if haven’t :O.

      Btw Joaquin, I’d like to apologize about what I said. I had a atressful day at work and then read what you guys wrote and was like “not again >_<…" It's not really super depressing to read these things, I maybe exaggerated but it would be best if we wait for October 1st to let it all out in case some are still playing. So then can chat about everything. I don't want to restrict your comments or anything, we're all brothers in the end and free to discuss games etc as we want ;D. Youve shared lots of good and fun stuff in the past and I hope you stick around next month also. I just wish we could all agree with each other well ;). But maybe the problem is me lol.

  • SolidSnake

    Thank you Joaquin and some other to tell how i feel. MGSV was so bad and ugly that it almost made me cry. What a delusion. Unbelievable. Sorry for the rant, i just needed to say it out loud. I guess the pain will ease with time and become a phantom..

    The last game ever released was MGS Ground Zeroes. Big Boss went in a coma: the rest is myth.
    Amen

    finally finished the game, now I see why some fans is so pissed off about the story. For me, I enjoy the story after seeing the secret ending. It really makes my mind blowing. Although I admit the story hasn’t make a great impact about timeline between MGSV and MGS1 but overall it is still a great game with freestyle gameplay and lots of content nonetheless. That’s why I adore with Kojima vision. He dare to try something different. Try something different is a very risk especially doing game franchise but it could have a best rewarding game. So far, I’m happy what MGSV phantom pain deliver. 10/10 from me
