    Had a bad experience with MGO2, so I’m not going to be participating in MGO3.

    • This is going to be pretty different though. The mechanics are based on MGSV.

    • Danny Patten

      Yea, MGO1 + 2 were pretty horrible. I’ll give MGO 3 a shot and if it is a camper paradise or everyones invisivble then fuck it. Had my fun with MGSV and don’t regret any minute of it.

      • JJBYACH

        I loved MGO 2, it had flaws but it felt really different from other online games mainly due to its Japanese quirk and headshot dependency, mix that with the weapon recoil and mechanical learning curve, it felt more skill based.

        Even though I feel like an entitled douche fanboy for saying this but my main issue with MGO3 is that it looks to westernised in regards to mechanics, but I guess it can be looked at more like a natural evolution.

  • XIFF-5

    Good old times <3 The only photo I have for my character :/

    • JJBYACH

      I can’t even remember my old username and password. Such a shame because I loved MGO.

      • My name was Liquid Porcupine Haha I spent a lot of time on there haha

  • ObsessedGeorge

    This basically almost describes my feelings for the game.

    • Mr.Pony
    • Venom_Sina

      Exactly.I said this many times.The story helps to make the gameplay hollow.That’s why I stopped playing after the ending (I finished the game in Sep. 5th).I never played the game since.Maybe I play it one more time when my PS4 arrived,but just maybe.

      • Lewis

        Really can’t understand you. Completed the game 2 times, play FOB and heading for platinum now. With all my hatred towards the story, I just can’t get enough of gameplay.

        • Venom_Sina

          When I saw the ending,everything I had done through the story felt bullshit,So I quit playing.You know,I can’t play a game when there’s no story involved or explanation about the happenings are bullshit.

          • Kojimaphile

            So… you don’t play video games to have fun?

          • Venom_Sina

            Yes,I do,but we’re playing METAL GEAR.For me,MG is different from other games.I tried really hard to continue playing after the ending,but I don’t know why I wasn’t really interested.I was like:”Okay,gameplay wasn’t bad.Let’s continue.”I started a mission and the moment I arrived in the mission area,I quit the game.That was 27 days ago.In these days,There wasn’t a single desire for me to insert the disc and continue playing.In these days,I played and finished 3 games:”Resistance 3,Heavenly Sword and Demon’s Souls”.Technically I have nothing to play right now,but again I don’t have desire to play MGSV.This game disappointed me really bad and I think I know the answer.I was hyped as hell for this game.I thought the story would be phenomenal (at least the trailers showed us that we can expect a great story),but when I played the game,I disappointed badly.The whole game was a middle finger for me.But at least I learned something.NEVER GET HYPED FOR A GAME.

          • Solid PhoeniX

            The emptiness I feel still hasnt left me since I finished the game. . .it sucks it really does. . . . I just hope they bring out a DLC that brings some more gameplay to our now empty Sandboxes. At least something to Revive this Game. Kojima Put his fans through Hell waiting for this game . . he owes it to his fans who are now all sad

        • Gatsu

          Damn 2 times already o_O, you’re pretty good.

          • Lewis

            Yeah, I ordered my CE and my retailer was a fucking disgrace. Not only setting the price 25% higher just 5 days before release, they couldn’t even deliver it in 10 days! So I took my brother’s account and bought it there digitally. So my first playthrough was a “speedrun”: I didn’t do side-ops, no FOB, no development. And now I do it for 100%&Platinum. Got my Raiden costume 1 or 2 days ago. ^^

  • DouglasPly

    after 3.0 in ps4, you guys know about the community inside ps4 , let’s create one
    sry my bad english

    • There is one, see the last part of the article. 😉

  • JJBYACH

    I hope you can make female avatars that work in single player and MGO – I doubt it would work for single player but I’m pretty sure you can make them for MGO.

    • Lewis

      You can make female avatars for MGO, it was confirmed in the game presentation at Tokyo Game Show.

  • Venom_Sina

    Okay guys,let’s talk about this game.

    Do you remember this scene?

    Or this one:

    For the second one,just ignore the transformation of Venom into Big Boss,cause if you consider the ending,this transformation is nonsense (one of the scenes that lost its impact because of the ending).Let’s just forget about it,for now.

    Is it just me or you guys feel the same?I think these scenes need another thing.A French Kiss between Venom and Kaz!!!

    In the first one,we need a French Kiss to complete the cutscene,and in the second one,Kaz is like:”Oh my love,let me help you with the gun.Let’s kill this guy who ruined our beautiful life!!!”

    I mean,what’s next?Do you want to bang each other in front of the camera?Or you wanna do it in the shower back in Mother Base?

    What’s your opinions about these scenes?

    • Mr.Pony

      We need a “Date with Ocelot” Side-op

    • JJBYACH

      I think the first scene was one of my favourite moments in the saga personally, it was so powerful, not specifically in terms of writing but in terms of the general cinema of the scene. The camerawork and lighting sold me on Kojima’s directorial abilities. I briefly I did a film /drama class in school and we learned how simple lighting can accentuate certain features in the face, and highlight micro expressions in the eyes and mouth as this is primarily where humans deduct emotion and expression in faces. After watching the nuclear trailer again where this scene was shown with more natural lighting and comparing the two, the subtle shadowing around Venom’s eyes and just the sombre, exaggerated yet aggressive ambiance of the moment in this scene in the retail game emphasise his 100 yard stare into not only Kaz but his words, it’s as if he is utterly hypnotised by what he is saying, and his stoicism in that specific scene makes it so powerful – It speaks volumes about Venom’s lust for revenge more than any single line of dialogue Kojima could of written. That scene (and a few others) was so well directed in my opinion it heightened my disappointment when Kojima just kinda squandered such powerful facial tech to account for technical and time restrictions.

      About Skullface’s death scene: I was completely indifferent to how he was suddenly betrayed by his magic femboy simply because the plot demanded it, mainly because I kinda stopped caring about him as a villain as he seemed to not be the focus. I was shocked at the brutality of his final death at the hands of BB and Kaz, but then Huey came in and I was like “yeah, Kojima didn’t take Skullface to seriously in this game as well”, which is a shame considering how he was set up in GZ.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,but look at the weird things Kaz does.It seems that he wants to bang Venom.The way he grabs Venom’s hand or the way he gets close to him…It’s love.This will never happen between two men,even if they are best friends.The only time this happens is the time that both of our subjects are GAY!!!

        • JJBYACH

          I would post a link of Kaz and BB’s date in Peace Walker but I am on a phone and I can’t be bothered.

    • Kojimaphile

      You sound incredibly homophobic. So you are not likely to even consider my opinion but here we go:

      I believe Big Boss and Kaz do not sexually identify as any one thing. When you’ve got a bond with another person, you love that person, period. Love is love, and you don’t have to have sex to love someone. Think about his relationship with The Boss. People see in black and white, but there are different interpretations. (Snake says The Boss was like a mother to him, but MB soldiers claim the two were “involved” – retcon, misinformation, or a different understanding of love?) I have two thoughts on these scenes: Kaz sees this man who looks exactly like Big Boss and goes in for a sort of kiss or something, but takes it back when he remembers this man ISN’T Big Boss. Alternatively, it could be he’s waiting for Venom to do something, but Venom not being Big Boss doesn’t share similar feelings. (After all, Quiet pretty much becomes “the love interest”.)

      • Venom_Sina

        Let’s clear something first.I don’t have a single problem with Gays,lesbians etc.I even had a friend back in high school and guess what:the only person that was nice to him was me.

        Another thing,I will consider everyone’s opinions,cause I want to talk with everyone.The reason that I posted this comment in the first place is to communicate with other people,see their opinions.Maybe I learn something from them.Also your comment is really good.Thanks for the reply.Okay,with that out of the way,let’s talk about the subject.

        Yeah,like I said before,they have a strong bond together.I have a friend.We are friends for 17 years.Maybe we give each other a hug or shake hands with our own style,but we really don’t get close to each other like Kaz gets close to Venom!!! If they were homosexual,this scene would make perfect sense and if they wanted to kiss each other or something,totally fine by me.But they aren’t homosexual.

        These are my thoughts,it could be right or it could be wrong.I just wanted to share them with you guys.When I saw these scenes,it was really weird for me,so I wanted to know other people’s opinions.

        • FoxTamerMGO

          Sometimes a couch does that when he instructs a boxer(like in the first cutscene). Giving the boxer words that encourage him (YOU ARE THE BEST! NOBODY CAN BEAT YOU! GO GET HIM!). What Kaz did in the scene was normal tbh nothing gay about it. But his oversuspicion of Quiet.. made me think he’s jealous or something.. lol

          Also there’s a side-ops in Peace Walker where snake has sex with kaz inside the box, it’s not canon tho. Also there’s a cassette tape in peace walker where paz tells a story about snake and big boss fighting in the shower naked and laughing it out afterwards.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,that PW mission was a joke.That one wasn’t weird for me,but this one…I don’t know why I have this weird feeling.

    • JoJo

      I think that your interpretation that they love each other romantically is clearly an affectation.
      Kaz and Venom (as Big Boss) have an incredibly close bond – they’re comrades, they’ve lived and died together. In the Skull Face scene, Kaz grabs Snake because he wants to help kill Skull Face and is literally incapable.

      You are seeing what you want to see.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,they have a close bond together.They should’ve give each other a hug or something,but the moves Kaz makes is really weird IMO.It seems he is going to seduce Venom.

        For the second one,yeah you said many good things about that scene (Kaz is incapable etc.),but he could’ve just pulled his own gun and shoot Skull Face.Or he could’ve just said:”Ok Snake,give me your gun so I can butcher this Motherfucker.BANG.”He still have one hand and he still can do many badass things.Remember that child soldier scene?If they gave a gun to Kaz,It would be way better IMO.

  • Cesare Di Maio

    how to get that fatigues?

      You wait until they release them.

    SPOILERS


























    So was skull face testing the vocal parasite with chico at the beginning of ground zeroes ? You remember the headphone jack in chicos chest. Also if I remember correctly at the beginning of phantom pain when ocelot and venom snake were leaving , a lightning landed in the bridge so the bridge was useless and also they left for afghanistan at night probably at 4 or 5. So how is even possible that ocelot helped escape the real BIG BOSS before venom woke up if the bridge was already useless when they show the cutscene, also real BIG BOSS leaves at dawn but by that time ocelot should already be with venom snake in the whaling ship going to afghanistan, so WTF? Someone please explain this to me.

    “Facts do not exist, there are only interpretations”.

    • Venom_Sina

      That Chico theory you mentioned is really good.I never thought of that.

      If you found out anything about that nonsense at the end,please let me know,too,lol.

      IIRC, Ocelot and Venom didn’t depart instantly. I think they hid somewhere and then went to a ship. So maybe Ocelot takes BB to safety, gets Venom to hideout, gives BB bike, sails for Afghanistan.

      • Venom_Sina

        Look at the times.Venom wakes up in 03:07,then they go for the ship.The clock must be 03:30 or 04:00 at this moment (judging by the darkness of sky).And then Ocelot comes in and gives a motocycle to the real BB.the time is 05:59 now.

        If Ocelot left with Venom in 03:30 or 04:00 AM,so how the hell he is with the real BB in 05:59 AM.There are two scenarios:

        1.This whole time thing is a bug (which I highly doubt that).

        2.There’e more to the story and Kojima is playing us like a damn fiddle (which I highly doubt that,too,lol).

        • Can’t really call it a bug more like a developer mistake, which I doubt anyway. There has to be more

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,I meant the same thing you said,but you described it better.Thanks.

        • JJBYACH

          Remember “There are no facts, only interpretations” – Oooohhh, so deep: aka, got a theory? Can you back it up? Well then it’s officially canon.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,that phrase and this time thing…really confusing.

            You think we’ll get a story DLC for it?I think we might get one,but I try really hard to not get hyped.

          • JJBYACH

            I’m 100% sure there will be absolutely no story DLC.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,Konami confirmed it,too.But when I see that picture above…I mean WTF?

            But the best thing to do is to not expect a story DLC,cause if we hope for a DLC,there a high chance for a disappointment.

          • JJBYACH

            Not just that, but no DLC can fix the fundamental problems with the game’s narrative (unless the DLC retcons stuff, but that would be stupid as it would prove Kojima had no artistic belief in his own work). Plus the game already has the scrolling psuedo-historic event list at the end of the game that lazily explains how the game “links” into the rest of the franchise, telling us shit we should of been playing.

            Dude, imagine how epic it would be if as Venom smashed the mirror, you see a glimpse of Solid Snake in a broken shard – a boss battle ensues with Venom now being your avatar. When you try and tag solid he shakes off your markers, counters all your CQC, throws decoys at you, pops out of card board boxes and inevitably kills you.

            *Sigh* Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Potential.

        • Lewis

          They didn’t go for the ship immediatly. BB wakes > Ocelot takes him to a safehouse > Venom wakes > Ocelot takes him to another safehouse > Ocelot gives BB a bike > Ocelot and Venom go to the ship.

          • Venom_Sina

            Why so much trouble?There’s no need for this twisted way Ocelot chose.

            Also,when Venom wakes up,Ocelot immediately picks him up.They ran from Volgin and then immediately went for the ship.So there’s no safehouse involved.

            And another thing:” Ocelot gives BB a bike > Ocelot and Venom go to the ship”.
            Ocelot gives BB a bike:Time is 05:59 here.
            Ocelot and Venom go to the ship:Time is 03:30 or 04:00 here.
            Ocelot can’t give BB a bike in 05:59,and then go to the ship with Venom in 03:30 or 04:00.He’s not a time traveler,and he can’t turn back the time,too.

    • JJBYACH

      Regarding Chico, I believe the parasites and the headphone jack is completely unrelated. The parasites are trained through a headphone through the neck, not a headphone 3.5mm jack in the chest, it always viewed it as Chico’s coping mechanism. But with the whole “There are no facts, only interpretations” quote, basically anything can be accepted as canon.

    • Ardens Anima

      Well, if You also remember, Skull Face went to Africa AFTER Ground Zeroes. During BB nine year slumber period.

    • What still confuses me is that Big Boss/Venom Snake had a horn in one of the trailers before he drove off with his bike.

      • That was probably just to mislead us.

    • Venom_Sina

      @Nyxus_MGS
      Oooohhh.That’s nice.

  • Kojimaphile

    mfw I got on Metal Gear Informer just now to ask if a PS4 community was going to be made and there it is

  • Jav

    I can’t wait to see the prices of the dlc. And now I can write a question about tpp.

    In march 1984 “quiet” can talk. Then she gets infected and she won’t talk anymore. So… she gets the name “quiet” just because she has been mute for a few days?

    I didn’t understand the virus. If someone infected talks some language the people around will die or only the infected? Venom was with her when she spoke english.

    I really didn’t understand the virus and the metallic thing.

    • Ardens Anima

      Speaking the language of that strain of the parasite causes the parasites to lay eggs and multiply.
      So if she talked, she would have gotten everyone else around her infected, and she would have killed herself.

      • Jav

        So venom shoul be infected.

        • Lewis

          Not really. Parasites need prolonged speech to trigger. So those few lines didn’t activate. So there is a big possibility that SPOILERS

          Quiet didn’t die RIGHT THERE. I think we may get her back/get to see her, cause those DLC costumes are either for her or for female MB soldiers. If they are for her – there is no point to release them, if she is gone forever.

          • Ardens Anima

            Exactly.
            She may have talked English so close to him, but that doesn’t really mean that they went that fast.

          • Gatsu

            There’s no need to hide spoilers anymore :D.

          • Lewis

            Oh, this soon? Okay, it would be nice to stop mashing that “dot” button. 😀

          • Gatsu

            Yeah we thought that after 1 month most of us have finished the game :), so can chat freely now. I hate putting those dots too haha xD.

            I think you’re right about that parasite thing :D, but it could also be that she didn’t infect Snake because it might take a bit longer for it to start spreading, when Quiet spoke.

            Not 100% sure was it explained in some cassette tape. If you play on PC there is a mod, which can bring her back. It really sucks when she disappears like that ;(…and I think there should be a way for all platforms to bring her back. Who knows, maybe we get a DLC as you said.

          • Lewis

            I still believe there will be a DLC or (most hopeful) an addon, that brings back Quiet. While it is a nice way to shake up modern gamers, she still took too much of my “daaaaaym monei”!

          • Gatsu

            I know, so much GMP lol and she’s such a great buddy too ^^.

          • Lewis

            And btw, you unlock Sniper Wolf costume after completing mission 40. And the guide says that she may go away any time after Heuy is exiled. So this costume seems like such a waste. Dunno, it is fishy.

    • Lewis

      “Quiet” is a name Soviet soldiers gave her, while she was killing them in Afghanistan.

      so thats what he meant with he said he had to go to training hahaha

      Damn, what a lucky guy xD

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    Was it ever 100% confirmed the costumes cost money, or no?

    • According to Junker, they won’t be free.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        OK, thanks. Probably won’t be getting them for a while, then.

  • Timmy Hortons

    Trying to find the metal gear informer cummunity on ps4 but there is no search function. Wth?!? How can I find it? Thanks.
