Konami: MGS can continue without Kojima, Konami will continue to make the best games around

At EGX 2015 in Birmingham (UK), website Game On Daily had a chance to interview Graham Day, UK Community Manager for Konami, and they talked about the game’s success as well as Konami’s future plans in regards to the franchise and the industry as a whole (considering the recent rumors about Konami leaving the console market behind).

Game-On-Daily-Interview-Graham-Day

“It’s been a fantastic month for Konami. I mean, we’ve just had, like you mentioned, Metal Gear Solid V at the start of the month, followed shortly after by Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, so yeah, it’s a phenomenal time to be a community manager right now.”

“The team themselves, without trying to sound too egotistical, they knew the project was such a big project, such a phenomenal game. […] Taking everything from the start of Metal Gear, throughout the 20 year history, and putting it into such a powerful engine, we knew that we had something strong there.”

The interviewer asked if it wasn’t also kind of somber after the great reviews the game has received, that Kojima will be leaving the company. It resulted in the following conversation between the interviewer and Graham Day.

“We’ve said in the past previously that obviously the Metal Gear brand will continue, so…”
– “Can it continue without Kojima, the master behind it all?”
“Yeah, of course it can. Metal Gear is about the story, it’s about the characters, and I think… yeah -”
– “It’s his baby though. That’s a lot of responsibility, isn’t that kind of daunting, on the back of his departure?”
“Look at things like Metal Gear Rising, I mean that was an example of the title being taken and taken in a new direction by separate teams, with obviously hands-in from other parties. And that was in itself a very, very good game as well and that was obviously led by a completely different team.”

The interviewer also asked about the recent reports of Konami moving away from consoles. Graham Day denied these rumors.

“Don’t believe everything you read in the press.”
– “You’re still committed to console gaming?”
“Yeah, that’s never changed. Things have been taken out of context, but that’s never changed.”

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to slam mobile gaming. Mobile gaming has a future, and that has a potential. But just because mobile gaming is being embraced, doesn’t mean everything else has to quit. Konami has a history of making the best games around, and that is something that will continue. That won’t change anything going forward. So yeah, people should believe in Konami. And if I was to use a tagline, PES 2016’s tagline is ‘love the past, play the future’, and that is there for a reason. The future isn’t ending now, the future has a long, long way.”

In conclusion, Graham said: “[MGSV and PES2016] show full well that we know exactly what we’re doing.”

    FUCK THEM

  • Bożydar Mazur

    Maybe without Kojima they will be able to make better MGS game that can actually connect the plot and will have any story.

    • It’s a shame so many people don’t understand what Kojima was doing with MGSV. It probably needs some time before the game gets some appreciation.

      • Bożydar Mazur

        I understood what he tried to do, but I didnt like it. Game had false advertising and misguided us, but even if I threw my hype away i still dont like the direction the game took with the story. As a fanboy, it wont change. I enjoyed this new Hitman game, still waiting for MGS dou.

      • Bożydar Mazur

        I’d love to discuss it more btw, but I think we are still not allowed to post spoilers?

        • From October 1st onwards spoilers are allowed here.

          • Bożydar Mazur

            Ok, thanks for the info 🙂

          • Ricardo Oe

            Simon…

      • Sting’s Dad

        Indeed Nyx. It’s incredible how many people checked this site daily for 2 years leading up to MGSV, only to crap on it.

        MGSV was never going to have an over-complex story; dominated by MGS2-esque 90-minute cutscenes.

        These are often the same type of folk who hated MGS2’s ending and years later went on to praise it as the best game in the series.

        • Bożydar Mazur

          I enjoyed MGS 2 at the start, mainly because of Solidus, but I didnt mind Raiden at this time, MGS 2 best agme in the series? Hell no.

          • Gatsu

            Mgs 2 is best to some :), opinions are different.

          • hunner

            More mgs fans needs to understand this concept lol. Everytime i say i like mgs 4 people call me a moron

          • Robin Besch

            mgs 4 is dope as fuck! and say what u want hayter killed it with his old snake voice… just what i think

          • Tong Ninja

            People didn’t like Hayter’s voice acting in MGS4??
            I thought it was great as well.

            “LIQUUIIIDDDD!!!!!” 🙂 loved that final fight scene with Liquid Ocelot.

          • glitchbomb

            And the smoootches! Haha

          • Bożydar Mazur

            I dont get the hate for MGS 4. I really liked it. Loved every cutscene, every cheesy line, every nod to the fanboys. I’d rather have MGS Movie the Game than Metal Gear Hitman. But I think the last Hitman had better story than MGS V so I might hurt some Hitman fans.

            Now im just sure that I dont want to play open world games. I have yet to play a good one.

        • Gatsu

          Yeah Kojima said he was going to make MGSV story more simple.

        • Amrit

          See that’s taking it to the other extreme. It didn’t need 90 minute cutscenes, but it did need a little more than what we actually got, lol. I’d argue that the story itself turned out to be more complicated (and in my opinion, less fun with the introduction of the All Knowing Copulating Parasites). I came into this expecting a simpler MGS3-esque full on emotionally-driven revenge fest, like the trailers had bent over backwards to present.

          Instead, and I agree that revenge itself is futile so it was never going to feel satisfying or “fix” anyone’s pain etc etc), we get a story with some of the worst pacing issues I’ve ever seen. Endings popping up out of nowhere with no build up, fetch quests jammed in inbetween epic missions that seem to be going somewhere, etc etc.

          Everything I’m saying isn’t related to the game artistically, because I feel that’s beyond someone like me at the moment and it’s up to more analytical minds like Nyxus to break it down for us, but there’s no doubt this game has pacing issues up the wazoo.

          (I tried to be careful with spoilers in my replies so if there’s any issues please let me know and I’ll censor.)

      • Sockerfri

        Word.

        The story was phenomenal in terms of plot twists, and how it all fit together in the end.

        Yes, it wasn´t what we were expecting; and yes, it needed a lot of work; but I did appreciate it quite much after having digested it for some time.

        • Also, it’s very important to listen to the tapes and have an understanding of Kojima’s ideas behind the story to have a full appreciation of it.

          • Amrit

            Nyxus my man, once the floor is open for spoilers come October 1st, I really think you should do a few articles so that more people including me can gain some sort of deeper appreciation for V. I’ve always enjoyed the few analysis articles that you’ve done in the past so I’d be all over anything you put out in the future.

            Like, on a technical level I LOVE V. It’s a masterpiece to behold and a joy to play. But I’m really trying to love the overall package having waited 3 painful years for it, but it’s so overwhelmingly disappointing in the end. I WANT to keep playing like I do with the other entries, but there’s not much here for me at the moment that pulls me back in.

            I think it’s the same for a lot of people, so I am anxiously waiting for people like you to step in and shed some light on everything. Please have plans to put some articles out in the future? 😛

          • IM2PAC

            Well said

          • Hm yeah hopefully we can do an analysis eventually, not sure if it will change people’s opinions but it may at least provide some new insight. May still take a while though

          • Amrit

            Well the influx of MGS2 analysis articles in the mid-2000s woke people up to the ideas that were behind Sons of Liberty, and now it’s a work of art haha. So breaking down V would go a long way in the same vein. Like 2, V’s been ferociously anticipated for years.

            In the meantime, I noticed below you suggested listening to the cassette tapes to get more of an idea on the deeper ideas in V. Are there any particular ones that come to mind that you recommend? I’ve heard all of them a couple times but I’m more than willing to do some digging while you take your time putting stuff together.

            Speaking of tapes, I feel the Truth tapes and the impact they had on the timeline as a whole went a long way towards rescuing this game for me. They were fantastic, but only a fraction of the whole.

          • I’d listen to “the moniker shalashka” after completing the game. There’s a few buy I forget the names haha. But the moniker one is a good one to start.

          • Amrit

            Thanks to your recommendation I went back and re-listened to it a bunch of times, and I agree there’s definitely something more far-reaching for the series other than my simplified version of it that ideas and rumors spin out of control until they end up creating… erm.. “phantoms..”, which can either work for or against the person that they were created about.

            It sounds kind of like chinese whispers… don’t know if you’ve heard of it lol, but it’s a game where one person whispers a sentence into someones’ ear, then that person repeats the message into the next persons’, and so on down the chain, until it’s revealed that the message at the end is either distorted, has stuff added to it, or a combination of the two. Essentially it’s different and not truth.

            I can see how this applies to the legend of Big Boss, which for me has been growing since MGS1 when he was the biggest character in the story who didn’t need to be present in order to be presented as “epic”. Then we meet the man in 3 and he’s a normal human being.. Without falling into spoiler land, this doesn’t reeeeaaally change, even throughout V. But yet we know his as an evil warmongerer in MG1/2 so initially something doesn’t add up…

            Ok when I first started typing this I had no idea but now it’s taking shape in my head haha. Huh.

            I still don’t see how it helps solves the problems that plague V though. The narrative being all wonky, the pacing being off, or the ending for that matter. I’m clearly not seeing the bigger picture though and you sly devils definitely know something I don’t :P. But this is fun!

          • Pacing and story content are different things haha. I’m currently heading out the door so I can’t type much. But this conversation…will continue!

          • Amrit

            Lol haha. If there was some meta tape that explained the pacing I would be all over this game once more :P. But yeah pacing aside, I don’t want anything more than if the story content ends up shining and I see the genius behind it like what happened with MGS2. I’d be so happy with that :).

            Looking forward to it man! If anything else comes to mind throw it my way. 😀

          • Like crimsonfox noted, ‘The Moniker Shalashaska’ is a very good one to re-listen. But also ‘The Ethnic Cleansing Parasite Project’.

          • Amrit

            Awesome! I’ve posted some thoughts about the Shalashaska tape under crimson’s reply, so I’ll listen to the other one now.

            Edit: Oh god Codetalker nooooooooooooo

          • Ardens Anima

            The tapes I feel were what really tells the story, it really informs people about why Quiet is Quiet.
            It just seems sad as that part is just passed up on when it comes to arguments about Quiet’s outfit.

        • Bożydar Mazur

          Where there any plot twists though? One obvious one that everyone saw coming and others?
          The only other plottwist i can think off is the secret room on medical platform, but it was plottwist within plottwist and in the end was just another bullshit.

          • Amrit

            I suppose you could say it was a, “plottwistception”..?

            No..?

            *grabs coat and leaves*

      • Gatsu

        Yeag I agree, it requires some time and maybe views change :).

        I don’t get it why some say there is no story. There is but it’s just done differently this time.

        • IM2PAC

          *nods*

      • cardboardbox engineer

        please enlighten me of what was it that he was trying to pull off? [story]
        all that magical parasites which are capable of anything….really?

        • If that is what you took from it then that’s telling.

      • JJBYACH

        My issue (and alot of the fans) wasn’t with me not “getting the ending”, it’s just the ham-fisted execution – and I think the poor execution is what will prevent many fans from loving this game’s story later down the line like MGS2. But with that being said, the gameplay was so polished and beautiful that the game will forever be a reference point for all future stealth games, so I think eventually fans will move past their story qualms and love the game for its gameplay.

      • César H. Sandoval

        Indeed, Venom is Raiden 2.0

      • No Place For Hayter

        I understand what Kojima was doing with TPP, and for me it was very poorly written and executed, and serves only to be “cool” instead of actually being insightful or interesting.

        • We probably aren’t talking about the same thing then.

    • Janeo

      I get that you didn’t enjoy the story but you can’t say it didn’t have any story, it obviously had a story that’s deeper than most games around and just because you didn’t like it doesn’t mean it wasn’t there. Hate the game all you want but don’t try to say it had no story.

    • César H. Sandoval

      I don’t hate V, but I’d like to play the real MGS5 with Big Boss meeting familiar faces like Fox and Wolf, building Zanzibar someplace far away from Outer Heaven

    • No Place For Hayter

      Ummmm, regardless of your opinion of TPP you can’t disregard the quality or uniqueness that Kojima and his team bring with them. But you are right without Kojima you will get basic fan pleasing timeline filler bullshit instead of an actual interesting insightful thought provoking story.

  • N-Shifter

    I’d never say “I won’t play an MGS without Kojima”, I’d like to but truth be told I’ll judge it the way I judge every game I purchase and that’s, if it looks good then I’ll support it – simple.

  • Paul Arpit

    I’m sorry but MgsV was “bad” and that was with kojima. The series is going downhill even more after his departure

  • Gatsu

    I don’t want MGS without Kojima, but these maggots could give me Silent Hill which they cancelled. It has been years since the last good one.

    That doesn’t mean I might not try a new MG someday, but it feels wrong to continue it without Kojima.

    • Greyfox98

      THANK you, somebody finally said it!!

    • James Raskalov

      For me, I’m stopping because I hate Konami as a company.
      I bought MGS games because I support Kojima.
      I hate how Konami treats it’s employees, I hate how Konami treats it’s franchises, I hate how Konami treats it’s consumers (just look at the PES controversy for a recent one), and really just about everything Konami has done in the past three years pisses me off.

      I’m not willing to help fund that anymore.

    take a look at the end of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRSZy12EOSs at 5:22 min on the bike, he has the horn. we know in the endgame he has not. so what do you think? did kojima arange the plot twist after this or was there even an other ending?

    • Bożydar Mazur

      Its not hard to swap models. The trailers were misguiding us all the time. Sadly, I enjoyed the trailers more than the actual game

      • Robin Besch

        me too bro… most misleading trailers a game ever had haha well except for mgs2 maybe but that didnt bother me at all because the story still was superb in the end

    • No Place For Hayter

      Simply made to mislead us, basic Kojima 😉

  • Demerzel

    Alright, it’s time for some Metal Gear Liquid then.

    • Bożydar Mazur

      Please no. I dont want this crybaby in any other game.
      Bring back Solidus. Please!

      • Nick Wheaton

        Solidus was a cry baby too you know, all his “I’m a clone and I can’t have kids so I want to pass my legacy on through someone else by kidnapping them and brainwashing them so I can be remembered!”

        • It made for a great character in Raiden, I ain’t mad at him haha

        • Bożydar Mazur

          Solidus was a visioner. Liquid contained of 50 % hate 50 % whine.

        • Fat Fuck

          He was a whole different game from Liquid.

          • Dr. Miles Manners

            He wasn’t an intron, he was an exon!!

        • Pliskin

          Did Solidus ever know that he could adopt kids?

          • He did. Raiden. 😛

      • Demerzel

        I must admit I find his whining amusing. So silly.

  • VIC BOSS

    Off topic
    How can I achive codename hog,hound and puma?

    • Darby Crash

      Open iDroid and go to database section, you can find the achieve goals in the descriptions for every codename.

      • VIC BOSS

        I know about description and find on yt method to achive hog codename but after try I get Fox xD

  • Full Options

    This “community manager” does not seem even 1 % grateful to the creator, not even clearly admitting (I mean, at least) that Metal Gear is “Kojima’s baby”, and almost saying Rising was great because Hideo was not involved !? What an extremely diplomatic community management !? :/

    • Well there’s not much else he can say in his position, he’s only the messenger. The decisions are probably being made by some suits in Japan. 🙂

      • Daburcor

        That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people.

        You are right, he is just totally controlled, because I would have expected even the slightest :
        “Yes of course, Kojima-san pioneered the franchise and we are really grateful to the entire teams for all their efforts …” (dunno, something soft, but this was a bit rude), and then go on with the blah he wants !?…

        • IM2PAC

          Wut?

        • Would have been more tactful maybe. But Konami removed Kojima’s name from the box for a reason, it seems like they want to distance the series from his name in preparation of the future.

          • Full Options

            In other words, it seems KCE communication is still completely clumsy on this specific matter… Man what happened that made them so mad at him ? Maybe the GZ easter eggs about “A HK Game” ?… 😀

      • César H. Sandoval

        Being a CM is suffering, you often have to spill some clearly obvious bullshit and make it look tasty for everyone else to swallow…

        • And you get all the shit for decisions other people make, because you’re the company’s face to the public.

  • IM2PAC

    Kojima said he would have to leave the industry because of his taboos. I don’t think they required money but he should have I formed US so that we could have supported him! I loved the ending! But he chose to do it quietly so that atleast his gameplay vision could rach the fans! What a humble man ! Don’t mess mgs up konami!

    • gerber

      what taboos?

      • IM2PAC

        Dude were you living in a cave?

        • No Place For Hayter

          I wasn’t living in a cave, and I’m just as lost here (sorry >.<), so yeah. What taboos?

          • Robin030

            yeah… would like to know the conclusion here too 🙂
            someone earlier said that the only taboo he broke was releasing an unfinished game, but i guess thats not what you meant lol

          • IM2PAC

            Read my answer

          • No Place For Hayter

            Your answer was deleted, lol, so if you care enough could you repost what taboos you are talking about?

        • Also interested about the taboos.

        • Hoxtonite

          Were you? Nothing in this game poses as taboo. Absolutely nothing.

          • IM2PAC

            Face palm ! Are you kidding me? Everyone knows that ! It’s old news! But kojima said that there was going to be and so said Robert peeler! Which means that konami did something nasty! Dude are your comprehension skills that weak!Poor you!

          • Hoxtonite

            I’ve never seen someone so incompetent lol.

            Nothing posing as taboo isn’t old news, considering no one found out until the game came out itself and people are still trying to find ”taboo” things. The fact they aren’t there doesn’t mean it was removed or anything, taboo events vary from person to person. Child soldiers in general can be taboo for discussion, there was a scene with Paz that was altered because it was taboo, in Japan, etc. The meaning of the word can vary depending on context and opinions.

            There is also a thing called PR, perhaps you’ve heard of it. I find it hilarious that you, of all people, are asking if my comprehension skills are lacking. Given things you’ve said in the past, things you’ve misread, etc. Please, you have no room to talk about anyone’s comprehension.

          • IM2PAC

            “Given things you have said un the past” what?

          • Hoxtonite

            And you talk about MY comprehension skills, lmfao.

          • IM2PAC

            And tyou talk about my comprehension skills lol! I asked you what did I say like that made you a lil pussy! A pussy cat!bitching about things while being drunk!

          • Hoxtonite

            No wonder you’ve been banned four times, lol. Such an idiot.

          • IM2PAC

            You’re the idiot here!

          • Hoxtonite

            You are seriously a child.

          • IM2PAC

            Can someone ban him?

          • Hoxtonite

            There’s no reason to ban me, lol. Ironic for you to ask this. Guess I will have to chat with Gatsu. Even after 4 bans you still can’t be civil and turn into a child with insults.

          • IM2PAC

            ??????

          • Hoxtonite

            Stop.

          • IM2PAC

            Why

          • IM2PAC

            Go watch one man one jar

          • Hoxtonite

            You’re so angry, lmao. Hilarious.

          • IM2PAC

            Huh?

          • IM2PAC

            Which scene are you talking?

    • muaddib

      I’m starting to think that the so-called taboo wasn’t what we were thinking, not a moral thing, like rape, genderism, but the choice he made in the “True ending”.
      I dunno.

      • IM2PAC

        It was done in mgs2

  • hunner

    Hopefully they are working on a Metal Gear collection for next gen consoles and pc. Or maybe a remake for MG1 and 2

    • Robin Besch

      i would love to have the legacy collection on ps4. with remastered version of mgs4!
      and afterwards the remakes 😀

    • Gatsu

      A collection for Steam would be excellent ;).

      If they make a remake of MG 1 and 2, I don’t think I can ignore it even when Kojima isn’t developing the game. I would love to see them remade.

      • Robin Besch

        depending on who does it i think with the story already given even without kojima remake of mgs 1-2 would still be a masterpiece! just imagine infiltrating the big shell with that sexy ass fox engine from TPP or sneaking around shadow moses and having blizzards like the sandstorms in afghanistan oh and all the awesome indoor areas that we didnt get in TPP… it would be glorious!!

      • hunner

        As long as David Hayter is Solid Snake and Big Boss is Kiefer i would love a remake

    • Greyfox98

      there was going to be a fan made remake of MG1 that konami had approved but then shortly after cancelled, look it up there was a trailer and David Hayter was coming back

  • Janeo

    I bet a lot of fans won’t even give the next game a chance even if it’s amazing, kind of like what happened with the arkham origins game a few years ago, it didn’t have its usual developer so people automatically didn’t like it but I thought it was the best game in the arkham series. I just hope people give this next metal gear a chance but I’m almost certain it will get even more hate than TPP is getting.

    • Robin Besch

      i gave every arkham game th same chance i gave arkham asylym. and they simply didnt give me anything new thats it. i didnt even know about a new developer when trying origins for the first time lol. and i will give every mgs game a chance just because its mgs. i liked rising for example and had my fun with it.

      • Janeo

        Not trying to say everyone played the game like that, just saying that I remember a lot of people hating the game before it was even out so they were never giving it a chance. I didn’t play the new one so I’m not sure how it is but out of all the others I liked origins the best.

    • No Place For Hayter

      While I see where you are coming from, I don’t agree. Kojima and KP and MGS are a different beast from anything in the industry, Kojima has been making the games for a few decades, the people in the game and the people whom make it (specifically Kojima) are what the games what they are. It is not about the development studio, it isn’t about the brand, it isn’t about the quality, it is simply that without Kojima or his team MGS will no longer be MGS, there is nothing else like MGS or Kojima in the entire industry, it is a fact that without Kojima or his team MGS will not be the same, in a very bad way.

      • Janeo

        I know there is nothing else like it and that there isn’t a single other game around where one man focuses on pretty much everything in the game like Kojima does. I just can’t rule out future metal gear games yet, I’m sure it won’t be as special but if they put the effort in and don’t treat the games like ubisoft treat assassins creed then I believe they can make some decent games, I enjoyed portable ops and Kojima had very little involvement in that. Im not saying they will be as good as past games because that’s pretty hard to do but I do think they can make some really fun games if they treat the series with half the respect kojima always did.

  • Xilurm

    “Konami has a history of making the best games around”. Yeah, a history. And only because they still didn’t have screwed over all the key people from their respective franchises.

    • muaddib

      Konami never did good games, they are just lucky to have the best people around and made them survive 30 years in the industry since the Atari, like Activision. While in the past we received games like Castlevania, Contra, MG1 and MG2, Konami just called some random fuckers and came up with things like MG1 for the NES, Snake’s Revenge, Goonies 2 (?), The Color Purple (??) and… Noah’s Ark. Fucking Konami just released a game about Noah’s ark.

  • Tong Ninja

    I would love Platinum Games to make Metal Gear Rising 2. 🙂

    • I seriously would look forward to that too. Rising was kick ass for what it was. I enjoyed it allot more than “DMC” the newer one from Ninja Theory at least.

      • Ardens Anima

        ……I personally enjoyed DmC though…

        • It was alright for me personally. I was to attached to OG Dante. Not to mention the straight out disrespect they had for the original.But I just mean it il was a great hack n slash (Rising)

          • Ardens Anima

            That’s fair.
            I don’t mind people with differing opinions, what they like is what they like. Even if they dislike something that I personally enjoyed, I’m well and fine with that.
            But what I really dislike, are the ones that are just “new Dante, it’s a bad game” and then don’t even care to elaborate on why they dislike the game, besides one thing that they dislike and then not even say anything about the rest of the game.

            Point is: I’m absolutely fine with people who dislike stuff that I even like, but when they can’t give a proper opinion more than “I don’t like new Dante so I hate it” those are what really bother me.

          • I don’t mean to be short opinionated on it. It wasn’t just Dante’s design. I didn’t like the art style at all or what they did with any of the characters. The villain was goofy and the dialogue was to silly to take seriously. It just felt like a someone trying to convince me they’re cool by cursing a lot, didn’t work for me. It just changed to much from what Devil May Cry was. And it was a reboot, the original sorry was so much darker and I like the gothic theme more than the punk theme. I didn’t like the mechanics of the game either so I couldn’t make my self finish it. Personally, it really wasn’t my cup of tea.

          • Ardens Anima

            I understand. 🙂

            You didn’t come off as short opinionated to me, I was just ranting about the pent up annoyance I had towards people who never gave more than just “new dante sucks”.

            I see why you dislike it, but I personally enjoyed it for those reasons actually.
            I suppose it’s My cup of milk then. (as I don’t really like tea XD)

          • Bhaha, to each their own!

          • glitchbomb

            Tbh, A lot of dmc dialog is silly. Its just a diff silly. There is room in this world for both.

          • Solid PhoeniX

            I enjoyed the Dmc Game, but I don’t like what they did to the characters. I know its a reboot and all but they changed too much. The Voice Actor Reuben Langdon was terrific as Dante both VO and Mocap, Same with Vergil and Daniel Southworth. But Dantes Flair was gone and replaced with something bieber-ish. . . Even vergil was more a coward than an honorable warrior.

            As a hack n slash fan I enjoyed the game, but as a Devil May cry Fan I didnt.

        • glitchbomb

          Me too. Don’t get why people were sooooo butt hurt about them putting their own favor on it. I mean hell…I remember a fucking change.org petition and death threats over shit like his hair… -.-
          So many people were shitting on a game that they had not even played or really experienced yet!

          (This scene made me chuckle because i imagined them inserting it -just- for those …ahem…”true devil may cry fans”)

      The challenge of cutting geometry in real-time was fantastically well achieved by Platinum Games.
      Modifying mesh topology based on users choices is one of the most difficult thing to setup in games.
      The characters (boss’s, etc…) were also fitting very well.
      Could you imagine in a perfect world a mix of this techno with the actual snapshot of the Fox Engine ? Hereby having Raiden WITH his sword cutting trucks & tanks like watermelons in Afghanistan ?…

      • Tong Ninja

        I’m not sure if Platinum Games will be able to use the Fox Engine. haha
        Yes the cutting mechanics were so satisfying in MGR!

        The boss fights were so awesome! Loved how each one got their own theme song. 😀
        Senator Armstrong was a crazy but brilliant villain as well! XD
        Although my favourite boss fight would have to be Monsoon. 🙂 He was all about the memes!

        Hopefully Konami considers giving Platinum Games a shot at making a sequel for MGR in the future … haha

        • Full Options

          ;D Maybe they could have use FoxEngine, but they implemented something (they looked like very comfortable with latest real-time CSG techniques or something..) that FoxEngine was likely not yet ready for. If KP had made it while trying their first iteration, we would probably have such a fantastic mix. I bet it is safe to think that Kojima first wanted something like that.

          Yes, the artwork of MGR was cool, actually more (if not definitely) MG than what I thought at first glance. Senator was top-cool, Samuel Rodrigues was also quite charismatic too…

          Definitely +1 on Zandatsu reloaded !

    • Aleezy

      I wanna save Sunny

  • I enjoyed Rising, but using it as a “example” is bad. Metal Gear Solid games are a lot deeper than that. I enjoyed Rising because I just expected over the top action that didn’t take itself seriously.

    I really hope this guy isn’t serious haha I mean, I’m sure Konami is going to continue to make Metal Gear games but come on. H4 should have just said, “Metal Gear Solid is important to us and we will continue to develop more of them” everything else he said wasn’t necessary.

    • Full Options

      Yes, Rising was a refreshing arcade journey (quite massive as well) but playing Solid is not like emptying a packet of crisps…

    • César H. Sandoval

      Rising is a more recent example, and the game sold great on consoles and Steam…

      PO is great I won’t deny it, but their mechanics were “fixed” by PW and MGSV… In term of plot you could use it as an example, but not many people gave it a try when it came on PSP.

      • I say Portable Ops because it actually built on and made positive changes to gameplay. I think if it was a PS3 or PS2 title it wouldn’t have to have been broken down into the mission structures the way it was. A full-fledged metal gear solid game by the team that brought Portable Ops would probably be amazing since they wouldn’t have restrictions like they did on PSP.

        • Full Options

          Correct, we felt like all was in box, but the control was not enough comfortable. Could have stay soft, but was getting a bit hard to handle / stay focused while progressing in the game. 🙁

          Yessss! I actually never finished PO but at the time I loooved what I played.

            Yeah probably more near the beginning for me (I guess I was about 1/3 or something), I got all these tunnels to crawl into or not, very exciting, but getting spotted easy because not concentrated like in “HC-NextGen” but rather in mobile-mode (bus / train…). But I think the whole stuff was really appealing.

    • Full Options

      Although I think he also tried something with Portable Ops (dunno, I tried but the PSP at this time… that was hardly playable, whereas GTA was like full portable GTA)… All was definitely well corrected in depth with PW.

      • GTA is the prefect vita or portable game because if it’s classic mission structure. You can play one then take a break. Especially the older titles like Vice City Stories or Liberty City Stories since they were smaller games. I would kill for San Andreas Stories on Vita 🙁

          These ports / remasters are legend. I remember the engine having the same kind of little behavioral glitches on PSP than on PS2’s San Andreas. Like really enjoying GTA in the bus / train ! 😀

    • NotCarolKaye

      Rising was also a bad example because it was made while Kojima was around to give it his creative feedback and blessing, so it doesn’t really work here.

      This is the reality;
      When some author is commissioned to write a new James Bond novel, it isn’t regarded as equal to Ian Flemming’s originals. Not even close.

      When somebody writes an ending to Charles Dickens’ unfinished “Mystery of Edwin Drood,” nobody says; “Mystery solved!”

      I suppose the problem is that that isn’t how Konami management think of it. They think it’s a brand. Like when Oxyclean was bought by Arm & Hammer. Same shit, different factory.

    • Solid PhoeniX

      I agree that Rising was a bad excuse of an Example. what Metal gear fans wants to hear is that Konami will not mess with the Metal Gear Formula. The Deep storytelling, Deep Plot (Boobs), alot of War babble and Epic Action Scenes – All of that while still keeping the MGSV Game Mechanic in the Fox Engine and then we might consider forgiving Konami for letting Kojima go. Im even open to them introducing new characters coz I dont want them Messing with the Characters I grew up with. . . .Just dont change the formula.

  • Robin030

    why does he say MGSV show that THEY exactly know what they are doing? i mean the people that know what they are doing are leaving or did i get something wrong?

    • Gatsu

      I was wondering the same thing.

  • Janeo

    The best option for this would be to have a completely new cast of characters set in the future sometime after the patriots are no more. The story could be something about how the world functions after the Patriots and the conflicts it causes, I know they sort of looked at that in rising but this game would be closer to the solid type of games so they could tell a much deeper story. They need to keep the open world as well, I don’t wanna go back to how it was in the past after experiencing TPP, not sure if they would be able to work the base building in but if they can’t I will really miss fultoning soldiers.

  • Kojimaphile

    I’m not interested in a Metal Gear without Kojima. Regardless of how you feel about V, you have to admit that without him MGS will completely lose its polish. We are talking about a guy who insisted his game was going to be 1080p and 60 fps on PS4 which is an AMAZING feat.

    I know my name is “Kojimaphile” but I’m extremely critical of his work, and while some games are better than others you could always count on Kojima’s perfectionist attitude to create quality games, technically and (mostly) narratively.

    No one will match his scope, MGS will become an every-other-year release because now it’s in Konami’s hands: and as a company, their first priority is making money, not quality games.

    • Janeo

      I don’t want metal gear to end even if kojima isn’t involved, sure there is a chance that konami could screw up and make some bad games but it’s not like it would ruin all the games kojima made. I believe the games can succeed without kojima and I know some people will never accept that but I just hope they give whatever comes next a chance before they start hating it.

      • Kojimaphile

        And I hope you can enjoy it. But for me, Kojima is Metal Gear, and that means it’s over.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yep, agreed, no matter what one may think of TPP without Kojima MGS will not be anywhere near the quality it used to be.

      • John Saladin

        The gameplay will probably suck without kojima but the story already sucked since fukushima left kojima productions and the replacement of hayter is metal gears gravestone.

  • Volf

    MGR 2 or remakes of the older games are welcome. However if they were to develop a MGS6, I’d probably not buy it. Hideo Kojima is the only person that can come up with those mindf*ck plots in MGS, and the only one I’d trust to continue the series. They are going to have to try extremely hard, if they want to convince us to buy MGS6.

  • Full Options

    Besides, Kojima heavily contributed to MGR, so technically speaking, he was involved in it… Who else than KP took the risk to realize MGR in first place ? Who’s idea was it exactly ?

Well odd thing is, the mission tells me that I still have to unlock him, eventhough it was unlocked when I had him, BUT there aren’t any prisoners?! During Interrogation a guard said the prisoner is here, but there was no marking and no prisoner to be found on the map. I went looking for them anyway because I know where they are, but they just aren’t there.

    Can anyone replay this mission and gimme some feedback on this pls? 🙂

  • PrinceHeir

    They could alot of ways in the franchise. MG1 and MG2 Remake, a completely new Metal Gear moniker like Metal Gear Liquid. Make an excuse how Solid turned into Liquid after being melt etc.

    I just hope it’s more indoors, but more open space this time around like Ground Zeroes. TPP is amazing, but a lot of the beauty of the indoors and complex buildings got lost when it went open world. More one on one boss fights, codec calls, 4th wall breaking and classic themes please.

    Shame Kojima should have made his last MGS game, the MSX remakes. That would have been a nice send off for the franchise for me.

  • SholidOnline

    Ok, hold on. Who says that MGR is a great Metal Gear addition? And Konami with the best games? Metal Gear may be my favorite franchise, but that says nothing about the rest of Konami.

        …Not play as Snake. I mean, seriously! This game adds nothing to the story of Big Boss or Solid Snake, reused a plottwist that was ill-received back on MGS2 and seems like he just did it for the sake of “Ha! Got you!!”. People care about this games lore and continuity as much as they want to play as Snake, not just some random guy that looks like him. I wouldn’t have much problem with it knowing that he would later release another game to expand on it and to feature a Snake to actually close the series, but this is the series’ send-off! To top it off, taking out a gameplay feature permanently (Quiet) after developing and investing a lot of time and money on her, cutting content that was present even in the trailers and leaving a ton of plot-holes laying around that not even the CE Blu-Ray disk could wrap’em up.

        • JJBYACH

          *Spoilers*
          My issue isn’t with the nature of the twist itself, as the concept is quite clever and thematically ties very nicely into the games’ (and the entire series’) themes of language, memes and social engineering, however, the execution was pretty awful and thus made the twist seem stupid and contrived – it just appears out of nowhere and it seems like Kojima just pulled it out of his ass and was like “WHAT A TWEEEESST! Did you rike it?”, and the whole “There are no facts, only interpretations” quote made me imagine him finding it and thinking “So deeeeeeeep”: such a cop out.

        • Janeo

          I don’t think there were a ton of plot holes, mission 51 definitely should have have been in the game but besides that I can’t really think of any plot holes. People keep talking about a chapter 3 and that half the game was cut but all it really needed was mission 51 and the story would have been wrapped up very nicely. If there is a chapter 3 called peace then it has to do with disarming nukes in the fob system.

    Next spin off from Konami is gonna be a sniper elite type game featuring Quiet.

    No but serioulsy if Konami chooses to make an MGS6, we should give them a chance at the least. Its not really fair to assume that the game will be bad without Kojima, we dont even know who theyre going to hire for the MGS team.

    • Greyfox98

      I feel the same way man. We will ALL have to wait and see

  • Venom_Sina

    I was reading the comments and why everyone are so negative?I mean,how can you be so sure that Konami will fuck up the next game?

    Let them make the game,then make a decision.They can make a good game,by bringing some guys like Tomokazu Fukushima,Norihiko Hibino,David Hayter,some guys from KJP etc.

    • Greyfox98

      Like I said, we ALL need to just wait and see

    • No Place For Hayter

      We are negative because it was Kojima that made MGS what it was, the quality level, the narrative and gameplay boundary it has always set, it was all about Kojima and his staff, without them the games won’t be bad, but compared to what we already have they will be horrible, also when was the last time Konami made a good game? When was the last time a stupid greedy corporation made a good game? It all looks bad from here on out. Konami ditched everyone, it isn’t like they are about the bring back the people that made MGS what it was after they got ride of them.

            Yeah you’re right. Every other MGS was a masterpiece, you can’t hold this flow forever. Don’t know but it is really a tough topic this MGSV Game. I’m sad that it is so unfinished, it just don’t feels like an MGS.

          • Venom_Sina

            We can’t say for sure that they were forced to release the game.They had a lot of time and money to complete the game.I think the problem is Time Management.KJP didn’t manage the time and resources really well IMO.

          • No Place For Hayter

            The biggest tell is mission 51. When was the last time a developer willingly released an unfinished story?

          • Venom_Sina

            I had this exact conversation with one of the guys in forum,so I’m gonna copy/paste it here,cause I’m lazy to type again,lol.

            “Yeah,that’s a possibility,but we can’t say for sure.I think he had a lot
            of time for doing what he wanted,but didn’t manage it very well IMO.

            You know,we have 2 huge maps in this game,but most of the areas…we don’t
            really need them!!!They could’ve cut the maps in half and done some
            story stuff instead.It would be better IMO.Or they could’ve removed
            those repeated missions (both Main and Side).Seriously,we don’t need 11
            MSF soldiers rescue missions!!!

            Long story short,KJP staff had a good amount of time (and money) to make this game the best MGS ever,but…”

            This includes mission 51.If they skipped some unnecessary things (which I mentioned above),they could’ve completed the game the way they wanted.I’m sorry (and I know a lot of guys will be angry),but part of me is with Konami in this one.They don’t have infinite pile of cash for Kojima to swin in it,lol.Instead KJP could’ve managed time and resources to develop the game the best way,but they failed,and badly IMO.

          • We don’t know if this is about the amount of money that was spent on MGSV. Because the game didn’t exactly fail, did it? It received great reviews and it sold well. Kojima’s departure probably has something to do with the restructure of the company.

          • Venom_Sina

            But Konami and Kojima were “buddy/buddy” before march 2015.Maybe you’re right,but I think money is the issue here.They spent a lot of money (around 80 million dollars) for about 5 years and the game wasn’t complete yet.Maybe they were tired of this long development time.

            About the fail thing:Yeah,the game sold good and reviews are mostly positive,but for some fans,the story was a disappointment.Gameplay too is nothing special IMO.They recycled a lot of missions over and over (which I mentioned above).I mean,the controls are really good and fun to play,but not for 100 hours.It will get frustrating over time,and that story really helps the gameplay to feel hollow and empty!!!At least that was the case for me.

          • Perhaps, but things always get cut from games. Previous Metal Gear games also have plenty of content cut: gameplay ideas, entire bosses, etc. All in all, MGSV offered a lot of gameplay.

            The game may have cost 80 million to develop (has this been confirmed?), but we don’t know how much profit it made, so we can’t know if it ‘failed’ in that regard. Also, people tend to forget one thing when they talk about MGSV’s development time and budget: it also includes the creation of the FOX Engine, and engine that Konami also uses for their PES games, so in a way, the budget also includes part of PES’ development. Furthermore, the engine can be used to make future Metal Gear titles a lot cheaper, so it’s an investment that they can reap the benefits from in the future, not just for MGSV.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,if we look at the business side of things,yeah the game made a lot of profit,so in this case it isn’t a “failure”.

            About the FOX Engine part:I think you’re completely right.I didn’t look through the eyes of a FOX,lol.Thanks for your reply,Boss.

            Agreed, they had LOTS of time but still needed more, it is their bad, what I’m blaming Konami for is forcing KP to push the game out, did KP spend to much time on the game? Did they manage their time badly? Sure, but it wasn’t their choice to release it in that state it was Konami’s.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah.Kojima created all of this.If it wasn’t for Kojima,we didn’t have something to talk about.I know that,but as we go forward,quality of these game that Kojima created is dropping (and you know it really well).So why not?Maybe a new team with a new vision can make a good MG game.And let’s not forget that there’s a high chance that the new MG will be a complete fuck up,lol.

        • No Place For Hayter

          I could be good yeah, but it won’t be “MGS” as we have come to know it, it will be new in all the wrong ways for a lot of people. I won’t care simply because I’m never buying anything Konami again, so regardless of game quality, I won’t be buying it, lol.

          • JGPliskin

            Just image MGS remakes with FoxEngine, damn I would buy them all if they don’t alter the story. Maybe it is really time for a new team. Maybe Kojima fucked up on purpose to make a new path for new and fresh ideas. Some time ago he said that this game could make him leave the industry. Maybe that was his plan all along.

            EDIT
            He wanted to end it after every MGS, and finally he reached that goal.

    • Gatsu

      Did you read everyone’s comments?

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah.98% nagative,lol.

        • Gatsu

          Well there are past examples of some game series switching creators, and they usually end up changing from amazing to shitty. And now it will be my beloved MGS :(… This is the reason I’m not very happy of this, but still it’s no need to worry about it too much for now. If they ever do a new one, it will take few years.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,Resident Evil is a good example,They totally destroyed the franchise.But what about Halo? 343 made a good Halo and I know Halo 5 will be good,too.

            I think they can.A remake of MG1 will be a good start.But like I said in below,they can destroy the franchise,too.

          • Gatsu

            Also Silent Hill left Japanese developing team long time ago, the result afterwards hasn’t been very good. It was gonna return to them, to deliver us some good japanese horror…but was cancelled lol. “Konami:We care about Silent Hill”.

            There’s other games too, but RE and SH are prime examples that have made me sad. Anyway, we can only wait and see what happens.

          • Venom_Sina

            That’s a different story.If they give the game to western developers,I will be a shitty game,cause they want to create a COD.

            If they stick to Japanese team and the guys who were involved in past games,yeah it might have a chance.

            About that Silent Hills,I think I know the reason behind cancellation:Money.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            I’m seeing the big picture more clear now . Honestly i think hideo kojima is one of the greatest developers of all time in history but for making Mgs quality games he need the proper stuff for making games . The first 3 mgs where story breathtaking thanks to Fukushima writter . Before someone said something: i made good research and it fact : Most of the Twist – Emotional dialogues and Codec script where made by this guy, not kojima. The same goes on Snake eater . I’m not saying Kojima didn’t work at all in those legendary moments . But After 3 the whole amazing Script , everything went to hell . Nanomachines everywhere – Hypnosis trying to explaing plot wholes – Vocal cords parasites everywhere and it has destroyed some Mystic about the substancial franchise .Now we know cobra unit got special power for a ” Wierd genetic reason ” . The same goes on the patriots , and many many amazing Philosophical reflexion that it just lacks at all in his last game .

            Silent hiils P.t demo wasn’t kojima : It was Guillermo del toro hands , juni ito and Him You know what i’m saying ? Anyway . Konami can go to hell . I prefer this franchise to died now before they get the hands of next installs . The main reason of why Tpp is bad has to be thanks to konami

          • Gatsu

            Actually it’s not a different story that much. Look at Resident Evil, it stayed in the hands of Japanese (I think) and they fucked it up royally imo. Have you seen the upcoming trailer for RE:Umbrella Corps? Jesus christ it’s like COD Resident Warfare…

          • Venom_Sina

            In these days,I don’t even care about RE.They don’t know what they’re doing.They are like:”Okay this is for the hardcore fans,and this one is for action players”,lol.They made a complete mess.

            But I think Konami is more concerned about the quality of their franchises.For example:Look at Castlevania:LoS,Made by a completely different team,but it was good,and I don’t know why they made the sequel shitty,lol.Or Silent Hill:Downpour.Sure it was weaker than SH2 or 3,but at least it wasn’t a third person shooter.When I think of these games,I think Konami can handle it,but I don’t know,maybe I’m wrong.

          • Joaquin Romero Victorica

            The moment where Portable ops has a better story than Tpp lol

          • Venom_Sina

            Defenitely,my man.TPP has the weakest story in MG franchise.

  • Kojimatroll

    They should just make games for the ps vita

  • Javier

    I just want metal gear cobra with the boss and her friends and metal gear remake to kill venom snake.

    Look what I found in my home.

  • War Games Via Live Bullets

    The only games I can see them create are:

    -A game set during the evens of ‘The Phantom Pain’, but this time we get to play and see what a “certain someone” was doing this whole time.

    -A game set after the events of ‘The Phantom Pain’ where we continue to play as V Snake leading to Operation Intrude N313. Or play as a “certain someone” instead.

    -A remake/re-imagined of Metal Gear, like, what’s happening with Final Fantasy VII. Obviously, the remake of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake should come after.

    -Hideo Kojima’s idea of the Cobra Unit set during WWII featuring The Boss as the main protagonist. Actually, if they do it right, they can have a proper trilogy starring The Boss as the protagonist.

    -And lastly, a game set between ‘Sons of Liberty’ and ‘Guns of the Patriots’. We should play as Raiden. And although we have a cybernetic body, it can be incomplete – and so we can still have that Metal Gear Solid gameplay. And since we’re a cyborg, we might have a few extra abilities. You know, like, how V Snake has his various arm abilities; Rocket Punch, Hand of Jehuty, etc.

    Those are settings I can see them playing with and still keeping it Metal Gear Solid style aspect (tactical espionage). The only other game would be either another spin-off or a sequel to Metal Gear Rising.

    • Lewis

      I still think, they owe us a Revolver Ocelot game a long time now.

    • Ishmael

      what about an mgs after mgs 4: somehow, for whatever reasons (it’s mgs…) they are able to cure solid snake from the mutated foxdie completely and luckily even that leads to keep him a life much longer. and so he gets onto new missions… everythink is possible for konami, they can do whatever they want. but whatever they do, it surely will go more downhill.

    • Agreed. If they make any that have any other story plots than those. They can go to hell.

    • Demerzel

      – A game between MG2:SS and MGS. We play as Liquid. In the first level we would be rescued from Iraq (it could play similar to the hospital in TPP, Ocelot may be there too). Then we’d travel around the world in semi-open scenarios and see the origin of Fox-Hound as we knew it in MGS1. Each boss fight would be against a future member of the legendary unit, and once defeated they would join us as buddies. All this around a larger story involving the Genome Army and The Patriots.

  • Golgari

    I don’t know… At this point I’m more excited to see what Kojima does next, but that is my opinion.

    • Ardens Anima

      I’m with you on that.

    • Dario Tafuro

      Yes indeed! Metal Gear was his prison and now he’s free, I really want to see what is capable of beside the stealth genre and MGS storytelling. I would’ve loved to play Silent Hills, but I can’t wait to hear his future projects nonetheless.

  • Lewis

    Stupid haters just don’t understand, that it won’t be Konami president making the game. They will most probably hire a studio and/or hire people from ex-KojiPro. So now we just wait and hope.

  • Pliskin

    Do they remember Silent Hill?

  • If they make MG games like PO i wouldn’t mind it and I think it will sell good, Their best plan should be the remake of MG1/2 on next gen and just see how many will appreciate that.

  • PrinceHeir

    They could alot of ways in the franchise. MG1 and MG2 Remake, a completely new Metal Gear moniker like Metal Gear Liquid. Make an excuse how Solid turned into Liquid after being melt etc.

    I just hope it’s more indoors, but more open space this time around like Ground Zeroes. TPP is amazing, but a lot of the beauty of the indoors and complex buildings got lost when it went open world. More one on one boss fights, codec calls, 4th wall breaking and classic themes please.

    Shame Kojima should have made his last MGS game, the MSX remakes. That would have been a nice send off for the franchise for me.

    • Janeo

      With TPP type of gameplay I don’t really see the metal gear 1 and 2 remakes happening, just being stuck in a single base for a whole game wouldn’t suit the gameplay at all. It would be great to see remakes of those games but I’m just not sure I wanna be stuck in a single base for an entire game after experiencing the open world. I do wish they had some huge indoor bases in TPP though, the missions where you infiltrated that base in peace walker were the best ones in the entire game for me.

  • Joakim Mogren

    Good news, Venom Kojima will continue the METAL GEAR franchise….. TRUST… ME.

  • Javier

    Snake Junior Revenge! But this promotional scene won’t be in the game.

    In the official twitter account, they were saying that the “coming 1984” scene is in the game but just with another background. They think we are stupids.

  • James Raskalov

    This headline made me burst out laughing.

  • GrayFoxWasTaken

    And this is why they decided to halt production of all triple A games

  • Gray Lion

      • Gray Lion

        Indeed, brother x) I am not even sure that he, or anyone back at Konami HQ, really knows what is the Metal Gear saga. May Kojima protect us from what they´ll unleash on us next.

  • Preston M Simpson

    Should have used “Portable Ops” instead of “Rising: Revengeance” as an example.

    • IM2PAC

      But wasn’t it produced by kojima?

  • TheManWhoSoldTheWorld

    Kojima can go to hell.
    We should support the new dev team who ever it may be.
    MGS doesn’t need him anymore.

    • Gatsu

      Why should fans support the new team?

      • TheManWhoSoldTheWorld

        I suppose instead of saying support, we should give the next game one chance for the sake of the series.

        • Gatsu

          Well lets see if it even comes first :), maybe they cancel it like SH :3 …

    • JJBYACH

      Wow, Lol. He makes one game that is not to your standards and your like “HE’S A TALENTLESS HACK, FUCK HIM, HE WILL NEVER MAKE A GOOD GAME, MGS OR NOT”.

    • No Place For Hayter

      The guy whom basically is MGS can go to hell? So you want MGS without Kojima? Bad news, MGS IS Kojima, lol, without Kojima MGS, will no longer be MGS. Don’t know were your line of logic came from or where it is going, lol, but I wish it luck, ROFL.

    Miller: “Tell Big Boss he can go to hell.. I’ll support the phantom and his sons”
    in 1995, the real Big Boss says to phantom big boss “Yo, your job is done, let your army join mine and quit being big boss”

    Phantom big boss replies “HELL NAH SON! You can go to hell.. i built this shit, i’m big boss from now on.”
    The real big boss replies “So that’s how you wanna play it.. OKAY BITCH” *sends Solid Snake to take phantom big boss out*

    After phantom big boss dies.. Miller is pissed off.

    Miller to the real big boss “DAFUQ MAN? After i built this shit with the phantom.. you just take it out like this? WE’VE BUILT IT DAMMIT! I’LL TAKE BACK EVERYTHING THAT WE’VE LOST!.”

    Miller then sends Solid Snake to take the real Big Boss out in 1999 🙂

    That’s how i think it went ;’3

  • Joaquin_Mgs

    So crimsonfox banned me by no reason only to reply in to a good mgs friend like many of us we where sharing thoughts about our beloved franchise and Konami . Do you see any insult in my comment? Do you see anything bad ? It was just a reply . If you are fan on the franchise been 100% honest is something truly fair . Why all the people has to think the same ? Why there has to be a rule about loving everything you want and if not you are just not worth it on this franchise . Gatsu we have fun all the year past waiting for the game and is not okey to let modder do whatever he wants . This had to be a friend community and respect to eachothers .

    Maybe this will be deleted and i will also banned so i think i would blame the patriots instead

    • You know for a fact it was me? Thanks for letting me know. You need to stop making assumptions dude.

    • Janeo

      Maybe people are just sick of hearing how bad that game is on every article, it’s perfectly fine to hate the game and I don’t think anyone has a problem with people who give well thought out reasons for hating the game but seeing your hate for the game on every single article is a little annoying sometimes. I get that you love the series or at least half of it but a lot of us also really loved TPP and we don’t need people hating on it so constantly on a metal gear fan site. I’m sorry if this comes across as me not accepting others opinions about the game because it’s fine to hate it and I hold nothing against those people but you can always handle it in a different way, I’m pretty sure I asked you about why you hated the game so much on another article and the only response I got was a picture of kojima saying that local man ruins everything, I just think your hate for the game can be handled in a different way.

      • At least you get replied too haha
        (I’ll probably get one now)

        • Janeo

          That’s the thing I have always loved about this site, you can talk to people and have different opinions but still get along without hating each other and that doesn’t really happen anywhere else on the Internet. I found this site well over a year ago and I have checked it most days since then, I don’t always comment but I have been a regular visitor here for quite some time. So I’m just glad others see the point I’m trying to make and I’m certainly not trying to drive the guy away from the site.

      • joaquin_mgs

        They banned me now the other account for nothing . 3 in a road .
        I just reply like anyone here with no hate whatsoever. Let me get this right : Many people are sick about me or anyone judging the game and is wrong but the ones who read every single post about loving the game needs to shut up and let the love of the phantom pain keeps the flow? Do you see the difference between hate and reasons or arguments ? I’m out of here you guys will never see me anymore . hope you get a party or something beocuse it’s truly sad , i made many goods friends like most of the fans but now every single time i try to talk, i got banned . Think about what i read for a minute . Take care . Hope the good guys have a good one on this website and crimsonfox ( Get a life you don’t got balls to responde me or to the people and you keep banned me) You will never be a man behind your computer

        • I didn’t ban you. I never have. When I felt like replying to you I did. I can’t force you to like anything, so why would I interject? I had nothing to add to your comments. (Also telling someone to get a life on the internet is elementary internet activity. I’ll leave that to you) And others here have started they didn’t like the game. But they didn’t blow up the comments everyday, every hour (it seemed) with a wall of text.

    • Gatsu

      Sorry to hear of this Joaquin :(, I’m currently busy at work so just read this. Not sure which one of us did it, but I don’t think it’s right thing to do if ban… You’ve been with us long time and would like to keep you here. We are supposed to be able to talk freely imo and next month of spoilers too.

      I can bring you back when get off from work and if others dont mind if I do, really busy day so got no time at the moment.

    • You’re unbanned now. Please keep in mind that people liked to come to this community because it felt like a positive place. That doesn’t mean you can’t have your own opinion, as you see on this page alone there are plenty of different opinion and it’s fine. But we should also make sure this place stays friendly and welcoming, because already people have been saying they don’t like to come here anymore because of all the negativity. That would be a shame, because the positive attitude is what set this place apart, we’ve heard this from a lot of users of time.

      • Gatsu

        Aye lets keep the Peace going in the future too :)!

    • IM2PAC

      I’m sorry! I would prefer to get banned for a fifth time than getting someone like you banned 🙂 I felt your opinions were aggressive and how you even shared them on ign (joacko argentina)

    • IM2PAC

      But you’re still pretty good for being so spontaneous with your opinions

    • XOF

      Do you have proof that crimsonfox banned you ???

      “This had to be a friend community and respect each others”.

      We don’t mind if you hate the game but I think the problem is you are not respecting others. Every article is you posting some pictures or statements that is hating on the game without much explanation. You are trying to bait people in ….
      Everyone else posted their final verdict on the game, disliking or liking it, then wait till 1st October for everyone to discuss further…. you just keep going on and on …
      You also made some hateful comments to people on here, so that kind of makes you a hypocrite …

      Yes, Fukushima is an amazing writer for MGS1-3. MGS1 is still my favourite MGS game.
      But that’s your personal opinion that the MGS games after MGS3 were below average. Not everyone will agree with you on that.

      I know lots of people that loved MGS4 (you can see some people here confessing on this article hehe). I personally liked PW’s story a lot. I thought TPP was good but not excellent hehe, but other people loved TPP which is completely fine. So see, it’s all based on personal opinions. Just because you didn’t like TPP (which is fine by me), doesn’t mean it makes you better than everyone here or anywhere else.

      I can tell you are very passionate about the MGS franchise, but you need to present your personal thoughts in a better way that allows for some great discussions. 🙂

      I’m already upset that mission 51 and other possible content was cut for TPP because Konami rushed the game through the door.

  • MichaelPayneV

    To those of you thinking that the Chapter 3 was just a place holder, look at this sh*t, look at what people found in the files! (SPOILER…i can’t wait till October, i’m too mad, plus, this needs to be said as soon as possible!)

    Seriously, Chapter 3 was suppose to be the meet of the game, or should i call it, Act 3.

    Besides Zero’s Full New Fox Engine Model, there is also an older Hornless Venom Snake!

    http://puu.sh/k8bwF/0b13066e2e.png

    The only way i may forgive Konami for this, but not fully, is if Chapter 3 written by Kojima turns out to be the base of the script of the Metal Gear Movie!

    • FoxTamerMGO

      DAFUQ! ZERO MODEL?! WOW.. KONAMI YOU SSSSSSSOOOOOOOON OFFFFFF BITCHHHEES! I guess kojima’s intention was to include him and hornless venom snake in the game but because the development took so long.. Konami just decided to release the game.. :((((((

        I know.

        That being said, considering that the Metal Gear Movie is produced by Avi Arad, who basically brought Kiefer as Snake, and who seems to be in greats terms with Kojima himself, i think is safe to assume that Chapter 3 will be used for the Movie, and Kiefer used as Big Boss!

    • Javier

      Older big boss.

    • I wonder how different the game would’ve been if it was released next year

    • No Place For Hayter

      As much as I agree that TPP has cut content and is unfinished I hate to burst your bubble here. Those models were not in the files of the game, they were made by people by editing and using models and normal maps they are taking out of the game. It is not cut content it is custom created by fans.

  • FoxTamerMGO

    I imagine that the “one-shot” camera scenes are what made the development of MGSV take so long.. Kojima stated that the one-shot camera scene that he created in ground zeroes took him a lot of time.

    • It’s crazy how things got changed in the final game too. Even the most subtle of camera moment was scrutinized. Some action heavy cut scenes were super well done for a single camera shot.

      • FoxTamerMGO

        Totally agree.. never seen a one-shot scenes as perfect as those in MGSV, i gotta give them credits for that.

        • If you look back at my older comments, I was a bit worried about action scenes in single shot haha. But yes, they were done pretty well for the most part.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            Yeah i do remember! the one vs sahelanthropus was the best for me

          • Dude!…October 1st we’ll talk about THAT scene haha

          • Gatsu

            Lol

          • Javier

            There are scenes where the action only happens when the camera is “filming”. For example, somebody shoots, the camera change the view and then you see the impact. Like a second later.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Hmmm, i changed my mind, i think “Chapter 3 Peace” will be an Expansion.

    Now this screen makes a lot more sense (No Spoiler, is from the Gamescom Trailer)

    http://www.gamepur.com/files/images/2014/mgs-v-the-phantom-pain-chapter-3-peace-screenshot.jpg

      • MichaelPayneV

        That being said, when this expasion will release, i won’t buy it, i already paid 60$, so i’ll just wait for the “Endof an Era” / GOTY Edition, and play that, and have the complete experience!

        Actually, you know what? I’m not that far in to the game either, so i’ll just play anything else untill at least we her something about it!

        • You said you wouldn’t get TPP on release either haha 😛

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yet i did, but i didn’t actually do it myself, a friend did it for me, and i’m thankfull!

          • Hahaha #loopholes

          • Gatsu

            That friend sounds like a great person :).

          • IM2PAC

            I would love to get a friend like that. Actually I would kill

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yep, he is, i don’t know how to thank him enough, i still owe him!

          • Tong Ninja

            XD nice loop hole!

        • solideater

          Or they continue the latter story in Metal Gear Solid 5 releasing as a launch title for the NX console…

        • JJBYACH

          There will be no expansion.

          If there is one I will jizz on a sandwich and eat it.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Then prepare your sandwich, your Jill Sandwich!

          • JJBYACH

            Gladly, ‘cus it won’t happen, ever. I will even consider posting it on
            r/OhCumOn, lol.

          • Jillsandwich98

            Hi!

    • Janeo

      I would be all for an expansion but the game did feel mostly complete to me besides the obvious mission 51 and I have just been thinking that this chapter 3 people talk about just has to do with the fob system

      • MichaelPayneV

        If it felt complete, then no ofense, you don’t know sh*t abbout a Story Structure (acts)

        Ex. No Spoilers.

        Act 1: Is introducing the characters, and it shows you their goal.
        Act 2: The Action.

        Exception: Act 2 can either be 1 chapter, or split in to 2, when split in to 2 chapters!

        Chapter 1: Ends with a Climax, but the Story is not Over.
        Chapter 2: The Story is continued, and it ends when the Goal presented in Act 1 was either achieved, or failed.

        Act 3: The Ending, the momment the Story was building up to.

        That being said, WHERE THE HELL IS ACT 3 in TPP ?!?!? There is no act 3, from any storytellign perspective, the Ending of TPP (Still no spoilers) is nothing more than the ending of Act 2!

        • IM2PAC

          Exactly!

        • Mr.Pony
        • Janeo

          Kojima said the story would be told like a TV series, I look at chapter 1 as season 1 and chapter 2 as season 2, chapter 1 has a beginning, middle and end and then chapter 2 continues the story of diamond dogs but focuses more on other things besides cipher. Chapter 2 has a beginning and then a middle but it is missing it’s end which is mission 51 but if it had mission 51 then I feel it would be complete. You can see that as me not knowing shit about story structure but I see it as people looking at things in different ways and just because I saw it differently than you doesn’t mean I know nothing about story structure.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Its missing Act 3, aka, the Epilogue, aka the last 2 hours!

          • Janeo

            Yeah and that’s why I said the game feels mostly finished, I said that if they added that last part of chapter 2 the game would be complete in my opinion

  • MichaelPayneV

    PS: And Konami just did the most “Big” Epic Fail!

    • CAUSE IMMMM NUCLEAR IMMMM WILLLD

      • IM SETTING KONAMI ON FIIIIRE – Oh wrong line sorry 😉

    • IM2PAC

      LOL but that scene was in episode 43 though a but from. A different angke

      • JJBYACH

        No it wasn’t… I don’t recall any scene where there is fire everywhere and Snake has blood on his face.

        • Gatsu

          The cremation scene was so amazing and I was expecting Snake to turn around when the camera zoomed to him. I always thought it happen and then we see his face full of blood and flames behind him like in the Nuclear trailer, I wonder why we didnt see it :(.

          Still, that scene was very beautiful, the feels :O.

          • JJBYACH

            Yeah, it was amazing. Interesting, after watching the nuclear trailer 5 million times I never thought of it happening that way. Now that you mention it that would be pretty cool.

  • Imagine a Metal Gear title with the spirit and substance of 2, 3 and 4 realized in the FOX engine. One day perhaps.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Perhaps Rocksteady could give it a try!

      • solideater

        Rocksteady?… Then Prepare for Weapon, Camouflage, Chapters DLC’s.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Looks like someone has never herd of ARKHAM ASYLUM, that Game is still The Best Arkham!

          • Robin030

            asylum totally rocked but everything that came afterwards just didnt do the trick for me

          • MichaelPayneV

            The point is, they are great developers and story tellers!

  • hunner

    The original moby dick epilogue was also missing…

    http://i35.tinypic.com/f4miyd.jpg

  • MichaelPayneV

    I would laugh my ass of if Hideo’s Future Studio will actually be called “Moby Dick Studio”

  • Min Han

    ya continue without my purchase too

  • Daburcor

    The question isn’t “CAN MGS continue without Kojima?” but rather “SHOULD MGS continue without Kojima?”

    From where I sit, the answer is no.

  • FOX

    Well as a big fan im dissapointed with MGS V for many reasons (not ony ending) but still they shouldnt deliver this game anybody else

  • kuaikukia

    Nope. this is my last MGS game bought from Konami. I’m happy for what Kojima and his team brought their last product. If anything goes wrong like story unfinished, my blame goes to konami But anyway I wish the best for future developer who wish to continue the MGS franchise.

  • Darby Crash
    • JJBYACH

      This makes me sad. Very sad.

    • Volf

      Damn it pierces my heart when thinking what this game could’ve been if Konami didn’t mess up with the production. What a shame…

    • Robin030

      looking at that picture crushed me…

      • Gatsu

        It’s fake.

        • Robin030

          which is why it crushed me… lol

          • Gatsu

            Oh, okey XD

    • In addition to Afghanistan and Africa, people also want Zanzibar Land, Shadow Moses, Galzburg, Guantanamo, Nevada and Outer Heaven? Come on, are people that unrealistic?

      • Gatsu

        Developing so many places would take way longer lol.

        These are just part of the areas fans were dreaming of pre-release I think. But it’s silly to hope for being able to get those.

      • Hoxtonite

        Unrealistic, sure, but you know you want them, too. :p

        • Yeah, that would probably have to be in a sequel then. 😉

      • Yeah it would be unrealistic, but I’d preffer those settings over Afghanistan and Africa. Wouldn’t even mind if the story is non-canon as long as it is good.

        • Hoxtonite

          Speaking of new areas, I feel Chapter 3 might have involved South America, considering you can send your MB soldiers there on deployments. Seems odd for a location, that isn’t in the game.

          But yes i would totally be on board for a non-canon MGS with these locations, it would be divine.

      • Full Options

        You also forgot Los Santos, the Shire, the Mordor, Datooine, the Nakatomi Plaza and Klendathu… ;D

      • Darby Crash

        Yeah it’s too much but Outer Heaven location could serve as a prologue to the very first game. Maybe just to see the rise of it that then links to the rest of the story.

  • insanetrasher

    I consider Ground Zeroes as the best part of MGSV as far as Metal Gear Solid atmosphere goes. So at this point I don’t mind MGS series being taken by others.

    Don’t get me wrong TPP is an amazing game all in all, but GZ was a much better MGS game.

    • FOX

      Agreed. TPP was like run,fulton,knock out,get on the chopper and stuff like that. İt never felt like a mgs game. İdk why kojima did this

      • insanetrasher

        Completely, and the game was too easy using the suppressed tranq sniper and D-Dog no matter what the “smart and adaptive ai” system is about. I mean, I could’ve not used those yes but… I can’t convince myself to not use the most effective tactics.

        I tried to aim for the 100% completion but after two dozen of side-ops I’ve lost almost all interest in the game, its always exactly the same tactics for the whole game. Yes the game allows for different tactics, but not fultoning soldiers makes you progress slower with your MB so..

        MGO is the last hope before I might sell the game back, a thing I really didn’t think would be happening.

      • glitchbomb

        No, that is just how YOU played it. He gave you the tools and options to open it up to diff play styles and that’s how you did it.

        • FOX

          İm saying there isnt anything good besides the gameplay

    • PrinceHeir

      I’ve been saying this alot. After playing TPP. I really missed the facility complex of the old games. I don’t care if its linear, but it felt amazing infiltrating rooms while trying hard to avoid detection.

      Deus Ex HR did this amazingly and one of of the many reasons i enjoyed it more than MGS4.

      Yes. Not only Ground Zeroes has the best atmosphere. But i think the graphics are much better as well since its not an open world.

      You can clearly see Snake dripping heavily from the rain, his textures are much more detail even the hair is longer compared to TPP. Add in stuff like Deja Vu and Jamais Vu and tons of easter eggs.

      TPP tried to be very different from the old games. It still has the best gameplay and best customizations, but the atmosphere and the series flare got lost.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Which is exactly what Hideo was trying to say!

      • insanetrasher

        What? I recall reading he did things differently and some fans might be upset about it, but he never said that TPP would not be as good as GZ. I’m not even talking about storytelling here, only the atmosphere and level design wise.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Now, i mean that what he wanted to transmit with TPP was that Hideo is not needed anymore, that his Story is complete, and he made sure that the Story can be continued!

          • Full Options

            HK looks everywhere in the production. Even if not writing code for example, Kojima also always have a deep and accurate feelings on how the gameplay should be fine-tuned (he obviously tests his games very extensively, he is a great gamer), so I believe he also could offer more, in many different other fields.

          • insanetrasher

            That makes sense, but we still miss a part of Big Boss story imo, a thing that could be part of the next game I guess?

          • MichaelPayneV

            Or the Movie most likely, as it would make sense for the Movie Universe to start from that point!

        • Full Options

          Although, the level design on TPP looks very neat, for many of those we could grab.

          • insanetrasher

            It was alright, but nothing in the whole game was as immersive/ as “metalgearish” as Camp Omega.

          • Full Options

            Omega is extremely manifold & bullet-proof, that’s why we were still all “like” waiting it solo, but at least we are sure we have it online ! 😀 Try to land in various places, I think Konami did not enough communicated (they did but not insist enough) on how the game can turn different if you simply switch that (like playing an entirely different stage)…

      Yeah, learn to behave please. You shouldn’t blame him, because you kept insulting him.
      As Nyxus said, this place has always been know as a nice place, lets try keep it that way :).

    • Gatsu

      I have told you before mate, that its best to think how you write to others. I know you’re short tempered, but still you don’t have to write those things. More polite is always good way because people can get offended easily. I don’t want to read some 100 reply revenge battles in comments again, when 2 dudes keep saying shit to each other. I’ve read those in the past and it’s a pain in the ass. It’s good to stop early.

    I was playing the f*cking episode 9, after destroying all the vehicles I was going to extract the 3 tanks. I extracted one and when I climbed the horse everything disappear and “you have left the mission area, mission complete”.

    • Javier

      And when I called pequod he died. Enough for today.

    • Venom_Sina

      Ground Zeroes had a bug like this.There was a lot of bugs in my playthrough,too.(I played on PS3)

      • Jav

        Yeah, I remember the gz bug.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I fell through the floor, once, I don’t remember if I died, or if I left the mission area and got a game over, lol, I think I left the mission area, lol.

    Haha such stupidity of konami … This is too much for me

  • Alex

    I’m only buying future Metal Gear games, or any Konami game, used, no matter how much I may be looking forward to it.

    Let’s do step one first though: Announce something other than PES.

  • Alex

    These community managers from the states or the UK are worth no more than a pinch of salt.

  • I just realized Ocelot and Big Boss have a Mike Tyson-Holyfield relationship; Ocelot despised Big Boss for humiliating him the first time they met then accidentally shoots out his right eye during a torture sequence but both eventually become good friends. Mike Tyson had a rivalry of sorts with Holyfield and ends up biting a chunk of his right ear off in retaliation for Holyfield winning their previous bout “unfairly” but both of them later end up becoming good friends.

  • moto hellogoto

    I hope konami Retcons some stuff that happened in MGSV. They probably won’t but I can hope.

    • Hoxtonite

      Why would they?

    • Eugene Voldo

      Yeah, I’m with you. The twist in the end was shit. After completing MGSV I’m actually more than happy to see that Kojima leaving MG series behind. It’s time for a new generation of developers to shine!

      PS. In fact, it’s not just a twist. MGSV partly ruins MGS3 (Skullface helped Snake on his mission in 1964!), destroys Ocelot’s character (he’s just a emotionless walking Wikipedia) and introduces freaking para****s. Here is your new nanomachines, guys! Enjoy it!.. 🙁

      • moto hellogoto

        I’m with you. Until I finished this game I never thought I’d be happy about Kojima leaving. Congratulations universe, you win.

  • Superb online work from house and make five thousand dollars a month. I made seven thousand dollars a month from the comfort of my house***

    Get more details by my disqus profile

  • Dario Tafuro

    Yep, they will CONTINUE to make the best games around, like Silent Hill or Castlevania, right? That’s pretty much italian politicians level of denial.

  • malo

    really because cutting the real ending out of mgs5 was a great idea, not konami cant create crap, kojima is the real master sorry konami you suck!!!!!!
