    Well, since the spoiler embargo has been lifted today, I can finally say that Kiefer was a good choice for Venom Snake in this game, as it fits into the vision of this game. Kiefer’s voice is more realistic, less distinct and therefor more generic allowing it to tailor to a variety of avatar builds, and his silence and emphasis on micro-expression really sells the whole “make your own story” gameplay MGSV has going for it, by giving us basically a blank slate to role play with. Even though I never actually wanted this in the game, I have to instead judge this game by its own merits and I believe it succeeded in conveying that aspect of Kojima’s artistic vision of this game – in that regard.

    And with the whole “There are no facts, only interpretations” quote at the end of the game is Kojima’s crappy way of saying “Screw it, your fan fiction is now officially canon”, so this I will do. In my headcanon Venom was actually Earth 1610 Nick Fury in his prime who was sent to MSF undercover as a field medic by Cipher to feed them information and eventually take out BB, but instead he agreed with MSF’s idealogy, BB’s charisma and sliver tongue swayed him and broke his resolve, causing him to abandon Cipher to live with the legend, until Ground Zeroes happened – and you know the rest. I’m interested in hearing your guys’ fan fic – sorry, official canon, according to Kojima.

        It’s harder to make than it looks lol. I put way too much time into it.

    • CR7HarisSnake

      Great !

    • gRammarnazi

      Can you play as your avatar?

      • JJBYACH

        Yeah. After beating mission 46 you can select him at the character menu, he has the same stats and abilities as Snake (Obviously) and he appears in all cutscenes (except mission 43, I think, I haven’t tested it myself).

        • gRammarnazi

          Ah, thanks.

  • XIFF-5

    WOW! must see

    It is like they knew that someone will do this!, look at BigBoss’s movement, and the flowers came from his table!

    • FMercenary

      I couldn’t stop laughing at this one, lol

      • Gatsu

        What the hell xD …

      • LMAO , holy dam i laughed so much i cried viewing this hahaha.

    • Nekkedsnake

      that’s wild! Ishmael really was watching him all that time, haha. and those Nurses… hot!

  • Tong Ninja

    So …. where’s the spoiler discussion/s everybody?? 😛

    Everyone was talking/arguing/fighting about it on here for the last 2-3 weeks. But now when the embargo officially lifts, it’s pretty silent for some odd reason ….. haha! 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Well I’ve chatted of them plenty in the forums, but yeah everyone is free to do it here now also if want :).
      I might write something later. Anyway, just standing back for now and waiting if people share their “reviews” of the game.

      Some have been commenting of them a lot already, so perhaps they weren’t really waiting for this moment lol :D.

      On topic: Pretty expensive figure. I might get it, but I’m not a huge figure collector. Looks really cool though.

      • Tong Ninja

        Gatsu, just get the ball rolling! 😀 haha

        • Gatsu

          lol, there is no need to talk about them really XD. No pressure haha.

    • NakedSnake85

      Well TPP is great. But really a terible mgs game. so many things wrong about it storywise and i have not the courage to write them down all of them

      • ObsessedGeorge

        I still can’t believe it’s Kojima’s last MGS. I expected to see so many returning characters. No… Everything was indeed a lie.

        I was thinking the day l got the game that, l’ve been playing video games for the last 15 years, and not a single game’s story has me so hooked up to see the continuation of it’s story like MGS has all these years. Sure l play sequels left and right, but definately not for the story. MGS’ story is one of a kind. I wanted to put the disc in the PS4 only to see the rest of the story first, and gameplay comes as second. At the end l was so confused, lied, betrayed, and in disbelief. In the end, l was feeling that this is it. That is the end of my all time favorite series. A phantom pain. Forever.

        • Gatsu

          I wanted to see more returning characters too and was hoping that the trailers didn’t show them all.

          I would have loved TPP to give me the kind of epic and emotional ending like MGS3 had.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            65% of the cutscenes plus deleted scenes where shown to us throught the trailers alone. I wanted to see the two clones together. I wanted to see Chico, Amanda, Strangelove, Frank Jaeger, Naomi, the little kids version of the FOXHOUND Unit. Unlimited story potential.

          • Mr.Pony

            I wanted to see Solidus and Raiden in some child training camp or find Sniper Wolf. The fact that they showed such a great ammount of cutscenes through the trailers was a real let down. On the other end I finished the story and side-ops and i just keep going back even if for 5 or 10 minutes. This game is a 10/10 in my book, but it had so much potential to become an 11/10

          • ObsessedGeorge

            No cutscene with the Ground Zeroes prisoners execution, child soldiers being told how to shoot, kids on the tank ect.

          • No Place For Hayter

            No Nuclear moment T_T

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Sadly no. We didn’t manage to go Nuclear!

          • Gatsu

            “This game is a 10/10 in my book, but it had so much potential to become an 11/10”

            Exactly this, I wanted it to become 11/10 ;O.

          • NakedSnake85

            why venom created Outer Heaven? did he? or not? he had diamond dogs for that reason. right? so why? Eli spoke 2 or three times.. really? no heavy moment with big boss and eli. Why Kaz hated zero so much. it wasnt about revenge then. cause kaz knew from the very begining. no solid. why venom didnt get infected by quiet when she spoke english.. Venom was used they lied to him. but in the end he liked his new role? like really? its the most stupid thing ever. they made him built a nuclear equipped army that threatens global peace for whatever the reason is.. he was a medic that remembers his former self.. So he is not US cause not every one of us is a medic on a millitary base called msf and his not big boss too… so ????? Big boss agreed to a plan made by zero with no questions asked. really? why miller didnt follow venom and joined foxhound. i though that he really hated big boss after the phantom pain. ocelot never told to big boss that kaz had aplan to put venom against big boss.. or his sons? Why they reduced Skullface to a cartoon villain? why nuclear weapons remained a threat even though there is a dangerous parasite that can destroy the world easily? when the patriots created solidus? why? where? for what reason? cause when a random person as the medic could become big boss through hypnotherapy well everyone can. so there is nothing special about solid liquid and solidus? well Zero is not a villain.. actually he is loyal to big boss and he protects him when big boss is in the most vulnerable position in his life. No chico… they killed him during one of the tapes.. no amanda. no eva. no paramedic. no eva , no gray fox.. really? ocelot was boring.. they didnt give him anything to do. no codec… which was perfect for the series. and guess what codec WAS optional.. just like the cassete tapes. every cut scene was shown prior to the release of the game… Every one of them… when venom remembered all of these things? why? what made him remember.. so many things.. really

          • Gatsu

            I think we were hoping to see too much. All of us wanted to see so many stuff in TPP, but should’ve realized that can’t see it all. They would have needed to do facial motion captures for all the characters and I wonder how much more extra work it would’ve required.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            So many things to discuss. Probably won’t get us nowhere though. The weirdest of all for me was, why did Big Boss and Kaz agree to play along with Zero’s plan? I thoughty they where enemies. Why involve Eli in TPP when if he wasn’t there, it wouldn’t havemade a difference. Shit…

          • Jav

            Zero is the good guy in the game.

          • well, miller joined on MG2 and the point on that game is to finish Big Boss (the real one not Big Phantom Medic) so it makes a lot of sense with this “new canon”

          • yeah i would have loved that too but maybe it would be asking to much. at least to me MGS3 is like the best game on the history on humankind. hard to surpass that.

    • Jav

      Big boss is a coward and left the gz medic to take his place. The whole world wants he dead but he can ride in a bike smoking.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I know right, lol.

      Well in that case here is my spoiler stuff….. to large so here is the google docs version, lol. Note though that these thoughts of mine exclude a lot of positives as my main thoughts were about what I didn’t like, and these thoughts are also mostly directed at people whom have played a lot of the game and thus already understand the many great points about the gameplay etc.

      (Oh shit, I just opened the flood gates…….. >.<)

      • Tong Ninja

        Woah, did you just write a draft for your thesis on MGSV:TPP?? XD

        I don’t think anyone is going to read all of that …. not sure I can haha
        Maybe if I read 5 pages a night …. 🙂

        • No Place For Hayter

          Lol, well it took me a few days to write and a week to make sure my thoughts were consistent enough to put down as points so, lol, reading all at once would be special, and yeah, I don’t think anyone will read all of it, lol. It feels weird though when all I do is run around saying things about TPP that I have already written down there, lol.

  • Daburcor

    The little figures it comes with look like nightmares,

  • My Base got attacked for the 2nd time while I was off and ofc I can’t attack back…. This is really annoying

    • Danny Patten

      That’s the whole point of FOBs. If you’re good at it the system rewards you accordingly and lets you know that you security and defense suck. Simple as that.

      • It’s not like I can win always when I’m not even online. And what’s the point if I can’t attack him back and take back that was stolen?

        • Danny Patten

          As I said that’s the point. Basically your team doesn’t know the attackers identity, so there is no way to get back to him. That’s the actual realism this game has except from his fiction story and characters.

          • Oh I have to lvl up the security team to track him back right, I forgot about it -_-

          • Danny Patten

            No, but if you level it up and beef up your security, you will have more success in actually catching the attacker or at least identifying him.

    • I’ve just kept my console offline, and next time there’s an update (for MGO, I’m guessing) I’m just going to disagree to the TOS to keep it offline by default.

  • Gatsu

    Oh hell yeah <(^O^<). Thanks to this great mod, Quiet is back and with every upgrade I had for her :D.

    Remember to backup your file if download and install it, but works perfectly for me currently <3.

      the power of PC modder. lol. I will eventually mod to bring her back when I bore with d walker

      • Gatsu

        D-Walker is sweet, but I REALLY missed her <3 …

      • Gatsu

        I’m sorry 🙁 …

        • Volf

          Kojima played us like a damn fiddle!

    • Full Options

      Maybe you should re-flash your old backup just prior to MGO install and re-apply the mod after install ? Does the modder have yet an opinion on what may or may not happen ? I know the installs are different but since TPP used GZ stuff… Should be 99% alright but I thought if I were on PC, I would have a small doubt. Is the game in a somehow in normal state like still needing butterfly to keep quiet ? I am just wondering if your possible current stats or something else could me messed if MGO need to access them or something. In any case, backup was the right move ! Please keep us posted on how this mod behave in both TPP and MGO in 5 days ! 😀 I am asking for future PC playthrough ! xD

  • Tong Ninja

    Earlier today I sent a team of S rank soldiers on a generic plant gathering dispatch mission …
    Mission was a success but two of my soldiers died!!

    How in the world did they die on a mission that only involves picking up flowers?? XD

    • Danny Patten

      You can always die for the stupidest reasons. so even in the real world you could die from gathering flowers xD
      Of course this is not how the Game determines it. It is based on probability. I think it kinda rolls a dice and if the number fits into the 5% of possible failure, well…you lose or lose members.

      • Tong Ninja

        XD That is true …

        Yeah I know, but those were some of my best soldiers …. haha

    • kuaikukia

      maybe some enemy soldier camouflage as flowers? 😛

      • Tong Ninja

        XD you might be right

        The enemy soldiers must of adapted to my flower gathering tactics, by disguising themselves as flowers.

    • Gatsu

      O_o …lol

      Maybe they weren’t just normal flowers or plants.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Oh come on, you know what happened. They where on a plant gathering mission when they came across this angry, hungry flower eating goat. They tried to pick the flowers the goat was eating and the goat killed 2 of your soldiers! 🙂

        Definitely a possible scenario. 🙂

  • kuaikukia

    Just saw the final cutscene of PAZ. Now I’m feeling depress….again. First Quiet now Paz 🙁

    • ObsessedGeorge

      So, let me say how l understood it. She died at the end of GZ, but somehow Venom Snake thought she was still alive in his head? Like in the scene where the wound re-opens? Why didn’t anyone rush her to the operating table to stitch her up?

      • Gatsu

        Yeah, Venom felt guilt that she died and he couldn’t save her in time, taking out the 2nd bomb in GZ. So he remembered the events wrong after such a long time and maybe because of the head shrapnel. Thought it was the missile that shot down the chopper. But in the end Venom realizes he couldn’t save her and she was a hallucination :(.

        The whole questline was a fake imo, Kaz and Ocelot too because it’s all in his mind. A hallucination which started when Snake picks up the first memento photo from the old MB soldier and it make him remember the sad past event that has stayed deep in his mind. His mind had went into denial of losing her.

      • kuaikukia

        as Gatsu explained, It was all hallucinating from venom snake, I first thought it was all real and so glad she is alive. But eventually she is already gone forever. 🙁

    • Danny Patten

      Yeah, that was hard as well…but she did chose to live a life like that :/
      I wonder if there is some possibility that there are kids out there being actual spies or something.

    • Janeo

      I really loved that side story, it made us all believe the impossible. If you played ground zeroes then you know she is dead for sure, it’s mentioned in the cassette tapes that a lot of her organs had to be removed to fit the bombs and that she would be dead in 24 hours. I remembered that but I still let myself believe she was still alive even when all the evidence pointed to her being dead. Guess I just believed what I wanted to even though deep down I knew the truth.

  • H’m

    Great looking model.. sad fact if i purchased this it would be a horrible pile of glue plastic and paint

  • NakedSnake85

    so this a question about a thing that i really dont understand..
    so we saw 2 different versions of the ground zeroes ending.
    in the first they found out about the bombs and they removed them both.
    the second one is what we saw in ground zeroes.. that plays again when venom remembers what happened in camp omega.
    my question is.. what happened at camp omega.. XOF shot down the chopper? or paz blew up?

    • Gatsu

      Paz blew up.

      • NakedSnake85

        so what was the other one?

        • MeLand127

          It’s venom hallucination of grief because he failed to saved paz

          • J.Wayne

            Yes, seeing Paz at motherbase was a hallucination
