Next Metal Gear Online update will introduce new Preset Text feature

In this week’s Designer’s Notes (vol 3), the Metal Gear Online developers talk about some of the changes made to the CQC in the earlier update as well as one of the additions happening in the upcoming December update: Preset Text.

Today, we’ll take a look at the changes made to CQC in Ver. 1.01 and the nature of hand-to-hand combat for MGO in Vol.3 of the Designer’s Notes:

As many of you know, CQC is the hallmark melee system unique to the Metal Gear series.
Particularly for MGO, all classes can perform CQC, however today we’d like to focus on the outstanding CQC abilities used by the Infiltrator.

Metal-Gear-Online-CQC

One special Infiltrator ability, known as CQC STEALTH + increases the speed of a CQC Choke maneuver; stunning enemies faster than other classes. Likewise the stamina level of the enemy doesn’t affect the CQC Choke speed giving you a similar effect up against a TANK+ equipped Enforcer as any other opponent or class. Likewise the natural abilities of an Infiltrator allows them to quickly choke out an enemy even without the ability equipped. Enforcers in contrast are the slowest to stun an enemy by choking.

Since the release of Ver. 1.01, CQC Stealth + Lv.2 or above is now the only means to stun an enemy with a single throw or punch.
Other classes, as well as Infiltrators without this ability equipped, are no longer able to stun an enemy with a single blow, throw or pummel. In order to stun or sleep an enemy after knocking them to the ground, players can shoot the fallen enemy with the “WU S.PISTOL” or other non-lethal weapons. Since the update, players have also experimented with other methods including diving toward players.

Metal-Gear-Online-WU-Pistol

No doubt, the player who initiates a CQC attack definitely has the upper hand: keep calm and go for the headshot. If you’re victim of a CQC throw or punch, this is your last chance at revenge so be aware and escape or retaliate!

Last week on the Japanese video channel NicoNico Live, through our friends at Famitsu, we introduced some upcoming content from Ver. 1.02. Let’s talk now about one of those features: Preset Text.

Preset Radio has been a useful means of communication among players, but thus far has been limited to those on your own team.

Metal-Gear-Online-Notes

We’re introducting a new feature known as Preset Text which enables players to send messages to both team members and opposing players. We have newly created 32 Preset Text commands and basic greetings to go live in Ver. 1.02 and plan to include more with your feedback.

Additionally with the inclusion of Preset Text, we’re enabling players to continue play after the end of each round. While the round has ended, and no health or stamina damage is affected, players can communicate via Preset Text and Preset Radio to all players on the map. The result screen can be hidden or revealed with a designated button during this period, so spend what time you will socializing, congratulating others on their win, and making friends in the battlefield!

Look forward to the above changes and more in the Ver. 1.02 update this December. Thanks for reading Designer’s Notes Vol.3 and keep an eye out for more Metal Gear Online info.

      Hold tight comrade. What take them so long !? πŸ™ I feel sorry for you guys.

      • MrVux007

        The reasons why its taking them so long is that the PC version was started mid development unlike the console versions….
        Or explanation from business point of view: “income priorities”

        • Full Options

          I could also understand that bullet-proofing the anti-cheat system and make things as less reverse engineered as possible must be a nightmare.
          It is always far easier to discover exploits rather than anticipating and correcting in advance them. πŸ™

          • MrVux007

            I remember the times ive played MGO2(on launch)….it was freaking terrible as far as cheaters go(wall hackers,NVG hacks,aim bots and worse of all Lag-switch)…it took them 7 and half months to fix ALL of that on a Playstation 3…
            And now after hearing more concerning news about cheaters on current gen and last gen consoles for MGO3,i can imagine how would things be on PC(where its much easier to cheat IMO)….
            Id say that they did the right thing using this time to BETA test the MGO3 on consoles and that way the PC release will “hopefully” not suffer the same issues people did on the consoles…

          • Full Options

            It would be great if they could prevent everything but it is too hard. Luck also influence the stuff. Cheaters may not always see an exploit even if it flashes under their nose. I am rather sure there will be little breaches, but trust the devs for actively fixing them.

          • MrVux007

            yea….

            :D, understood, I mean, now that they are supposed to have enough experience in this field, of course… πŸ˜‰ I hope they will be more efficient this time.

            Boromir knows how it is.

    Off Topic:
    Am I the only who feels irritated at the hatred MGSV is getting? This is especially the case for sites such as YouTube. Most people don’t list a good reason as to why they don’t like it and makes it look like there’s a bandwagon of MGSV hate.

    • MrVux007

      You are not the only one mate…but keep in mind that those who are displeased by the product are usually the loudest in news sites like MG Informer,IGN,Gamespot and in the end we have YouTube…and alas lets not forget trolls who haven’t even played the game and yet talk crap against it…The same happened when MGS2,MGS3,MGS4 and MGSPW released…
      MGSV seems a bit more severe taking into consideration bigger audience…

      All in all,you should not heed no attention towards those comments,especially if you have enjoyed the game yourself and lets not forget that the game has “global” acclaim(which means that both the majority of reviewers and the majority of users are more then pleased) which speaks much louder then those negative comments you may see πŸ™‚

      • It’s also because MGSV turned out to be very different from what people were expecting (in terms of story at least). It will probably take some time before people appreciate it. The same thing happened with MGS2.

        • MrVux007

          Yea im yet to play the game..but ive mostly herd that the game ending is reason to why some people are / were displeased…if so,then yea its totally yet another MGS2 situation

          • You haven’t played it yet? How come?

          • MrVux007

            im currently under job contract for almost 4 months now (working on a Passenger Ship) and it expires on 25th of December…my pre-order box of MGSV is waiting home along with the Japanese version i got from a friend…
            but fear not ,i have avoided spoilers πŸ™‚

          • Good! Hopefully you will enjoy the game. Be careful though, spoilers are allowed to be posted here now.

          • MrVux007

            What can i say…i love this site “bit” to much to avoid it πŸ˜›

          • Gatsu

            If Vux has managed to avoid spoilers for so long, he’s pretty badass xD. A true Snake.

            I hope you will. You’ll tell us.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Maybe you shouldn’t judge peoples opinions until you play the game yourself as that would come across as both arrogant and stupid.

          • MrVux007

            Ive gathered enough feedback from trusted reviewers and friends(And most importantly i have my own experiance of how the gaming community works/comment sections etc etc) to “judge” someones elses opinion…And speaking of arrogant and stupid,you should look in the mirror…
            Cuz the only one who is really toxic in the comment section right now,taking everything to the personal is you… and worse of all you think that you know someone else’s intelligence ….

            Tl:DR If you can make a comment without trying to insult the individuals of this friendly and positive community i suggest you either stop acting like that or leave this site peacefully ( if not,moderators are here for a reason)…i suggest visiting sites like IGN and comment like that over there…youl fit right in πŸ™‚

          • Kol Leqejza

            you will be displeased, too. but embrace this pain, for the whole time being, after that u will get the grand picture and will feel honored.

          • MrVux007

            thats pretty much how i experienced MGS2 ending lol

          The MGS2 incident… πŸ˜€

        • FoxTamerMGO

          The only thing I appreciate in MGSV is the language theme and would never appreciate anything else in that game.

          • Maybe you will in a few years, you never know!

        • OcelotSilver

          Everyone needs to remind the community of this on a daily-basis.

      • PsychoMantis18

        Gohhhhhd you speak a lot of rubbish. Not everyone has to agree. Humanities progress was made on critical analysis. Which, by the way, seems to be much more common amongst those who had issues with the game.
        You know, as opposed to all those who just want to share in the games fandom and talk about it rather than play it.

        • Not really fair, there are plenty who liked it who have put some thought into it, analyzed it etc. And there are also a lot of people who hate who don’t seem to have put much thought into it. So that argument goes both ways.

          • PsychoMantis18

            I’m not saying that there isn’t, what I am saying is that I think the majority of those who were 100% happy with it haven’t bothered to analyse it as much as the majority of those that had issues. Much easier to jump on the wagon than get off it. I still loved the first half, but more better be coming.

          • MrVux007

            “Much easier to jump on the wagon than get off it. ” Same could be said about your “hate” wagon mate πŸ™‚

        • MrVux007

          “Gohhhhhd you speak a lot of rubbish.” dont get me started on your first sentence of your reply.

          “Not everyone has to agree.” And where did i state that everyone should?

          “Humanities progress was made on critical analysis.Which, by the way, seems to be much more common amongst those who had issues with the game.” First you are associating thousands of years of humanities progress with one video game and second who says that those who claim that MGSV is one of the best games ever made haven’t made a “critical analysis” aka “objective analysis”.

          Again im pointing out the most obvious thing in the universe, an angry mob(no matter the subject of media) is always the loudest no matter the quantity of that same mob,and im not saying who is right and who is wrong,im only saying that hearing it over and over again gets repetitive and irritating…

          • PsychoMantis18

            After reading your responses I have two questions –

            1. Are you a child?

            2. Are you mentally challenged?

            If the answer to either is yes, then I apologize. If not, you have proven my points, so thankyou.

          • MrVux007

            1.Im a young adult,but sometimes i feel like im 12(as far as gaming goes ofc) : )
            2.I must admit that my job is sometimes mentally challenging,but reading replies like yours does damage my grey cells…cuz there is certain quantity of arrogance and toxicity i can take, daily….

            either ask your parents to teach(or atleast try) you how to behave properly with people that obviously have manners or continue being an unpolite cunt as you are…
            either way you have been warned by Nyxus and now you have been warned by me…

            but if you continue being so proud and arrogant about your current behaviour,know that i respect that nonetheless.Atleast you have shown some good attribute among many negative ones thus far in this discussions πŸ™‚

          • PsychoMantis18

            Be warned by you? You have no power little man. You are, however, one of the most hypocritical and delusion people I have ever come across online.

            I can’t talk to you anymore, Nyxus says I have to be nice.

            Good-bye.

          • MrVux007

            @Nyxus:disqus @Gatsu88:disqus

            Ok,maybe my pleads and warnings towards you to behave like polite person mean nothing…but im more then sure that warnings from a moderators are not to be trifled with…and you got your share of warnings from Nyxus,and despite all of that you still act like an impertinent cunt…let the moderators deal with you,i had my share of toxicity from you

            PS You can call me many things,but i sure as hell am not hypocritical….

          • Gatsu

            Come on man, reply like this is just asking for a fight. No need to ask stuff like that.
            But lets all just relax, opinions always clash around here but hopefully it don’t explode like sometimes in the past with 100 + replies.

      You are not alone at all, comrade. I’d say they are usually MG-Noobs, not really aware at what they spit on.. ;D Also Koji-Noobs not yet getting Hideo’s pranks and tricks. Actually, it is pretty characteristic and happen every single time a new MG is out.
      What’s sad is that bashing something on internet is getting so easy and usual that we get even more violent hatred.
      Those persons have to do better homework and get back to their joysticks to play all opuses until they really get how nuts they behaved.
      In few years, you will see the same persons praising MG like they always adored this serie and BS like that. xD

      • PsychoMantis18

        Really?

        Let’s move aside all that pretentious immature dribble that made it’s way onto your keyboard and please, tell me, what did you think of the second chapter?

        As someone who has identified himself as not being an ‘MG-noob’, why do you think the game, at this point in time (Chapter 3 hopefully pending), does not deserve the criticism it gets?

        • Please try to keep a friendly tone, no need to get personal here.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Sorry Nyxus, but it is personal. I’ll try my best. Feel free to boot me. I’ll still check the site from afar.

          • No need for that, it would just be nice to keep the atmosphere here friendly and polite. πŸ™‚

          • PsychoMantis18

            Can you please tell those above?

          • It goes for everyone, of course. πŸ™‚

          • PsychoMantis18

            But you had a problem with my post, not theirs. They were far more offensive than I.

          • They were not directly addressing a person on the site in a negative way. But in general it goes for everyone that we should try to be polite and friendly to each other.

          • PsychoMantis18

            You know I love you, Nyxus so i’ll stop, but can’t agree that attacking one persons comments is comparable to attacking a significant portion of MG fans.

          • Just trying to stop this from escalating. So everyone, please be respectful towards each other. We’re all Metal Gear fans! πŸ™‚

          • MrVux007

            Obviously someone didn’t get the message …

          • PsychoMantis18

            More condescension. That is not polite, that is hypocritical. This is not what Nyxus wants.

          • MrVux007

            There is no condescension….Nyxus was more then clear in what he wants….for you and everyone else to act politely and respectfully towards one another…something you obviously don’t understand,

            and try to learn the meaning of the words hypocritical ( over using the words you obviously know little about makes you look like an jackass)…

            But since they are tolerating your behavior i think that moderators are bit to much tolerable after those so many warnings towards you….

          • Gatsu

            It’s not all so black and white. If this kind of discussions would be a reason to ban, well there would be pretty many who would deserve it in the past. I just don’t want to ban too easily and I’m glad I don’t, because I enjoy chatting with many long timers here who have sometimes commented angrily also :).

            But there’s a limit for me though… I try to keep banning as final option, as members here usually get along well in the end after few warnings.. Maybe I’m too kind lol.

            I’m not sure how Nyx, crimsonfox or Golgari always act in this kind of situation. This would stop easily, but you guys just keep replying to each other.

          • MrVux007

            All of this would be avoided if he replied more civil / politely …

          • Gatsu

            This is true and I wish everyone could follow this advice. πŸ™‚

          • Gatsu

            Aye, also shouldn’t take comments too seriously. It’s the best way to stay clear of endless fighting, we all got own thoughts of games so no need to insult each other just because disagree :).

            If everyone can reply in more polite way, all is good imo.

          • PsychoMantis18

            Please tell me you see what i’m talking about with MrVux007 from his latest reply?

            How am I not supposed to respond when there is this constant condescension going on?

            If people want to stir, fine, i’ll respond.
            If people want to keep things peaceful, fine, so will I.
            But I don’t see how this double standard can be deemed fair to those of us who were disappointed with the game.

          • Gatsu

            You can criticise TPP, the game isn’t perfect. But I think this all started when you called Vux stupid and arrogant, or something like that. It seemed personal insult. Also him talking full of crap in his earlier post just because you didn’t agree with him. He can have an idea of the game before playing it imo.

            I’m not really trying to pick sides here, because I expect you two to get along :). And I’m not gonna ban either of you just because you guys can’t stop this pointless arguing. It’s good to know when to end imo, that goes for everyone.

            Swearing towards others isn’t allowed, but what I would like to see is polite discussions mostly. That’s how MGI often have been. I know you guys have been around here a long time so Vux too, please just stop this and don’t find us reasons to ban because I don’t like to do it anyway.

          • PsychoMantis18

            You’ve completely missed the point and have misunderstood the situation. Two members both expressed a condescending attitude against those who had problems with the game and I responded in kind. Now they are trying to wriggle there way out of the situation by playing innocent victim.

            You picked a terrible example with the swearing-thing by the way – the person you’re defending called me a cunt not long ago. Have you told him off?

            Until then – ban me or ignore me.
            I’m getting sick of this blatant favoritism.

          • Gatsu

            Okey so hopefully this stops then, have a nice day all of ya.

          • PsychoMantis18

            You too.

          • Gatsu

            I think they responded kindly too mostly. Gotta go to work, cya. I’m sure you all can behave without me watching over your shoulders.

          • MrVux007

            “Condescending attitude against those who had problems with the game”
            Ah now i see your bloody problem…re-read the OP,and then you will see of which people we are talking about…we haven’t spoken a word about people who had valid negative points about MGSV…we are talking about users and trolls who just blatantly insult the game without mentioning the reasons behind their statements on various sites and especially YouTube….

            PS I called you a cunt,after several posts of insulting me and @@fulloptions:disqus ….im a tolerable person but even i have limits,and once those limits are breached i sometimes react like an immature person,such as you…

            I love Kojima Productions but that does not mean i’ll endlessly praise their game if I had issues with it. I’ve put in more than 300hrs in MGSV and everyday after work I look forward to sitting down to play it. HOWEVER, that does not mean I can’t be dissapointed in many of the aspects that are a let down compared to previous games.

            Also, people keep bringing up MGS2 as a comparison are missing the point of many of us who are dissapointed, it’s not the ending or the fact that (spoiler) we’re not Jack.
            I loved the twist personally. It’s the second half of the game that many have an issue with. But I still have hope for more as I believe this may be intentional.

            Stay sure I am perfectly fine with all opinions, whether of disappointed fans or happy ones.

            Regarding MG Fans, consider what I wrote as an electro-shock inviting them to better balance their sentences and communicate in a simply more respectful manner.

            My point is that internet is not always in the disappointed MG Fans’s shoes. IMO, some Fans have to post their critics in a more respectful and fair manner toward V, so that their happy brothers reading them can still distinguish them from noobs.

            By not doing this effort and simply / freely throw hatred without precising any context, and literally treating V like a miserably epic failed candy crush project, they leave on the internet a rather rude and unfair impression to others, which is, by the way, not what they actually wanted in first place.

            Reading what you just wrote, I actually see no reason for you to class yourself inside the category that my initial post was aiming at. I was just aiming noobs and of course not MG disappointed Fans. I think you will agree that a substantial number of persons posting unjustified negative comments are noobs.

            Does it make more sense now ?

          • PsychoMantis18

            It doesn’t make sense and it never will. You can’t criticise or condescend over those who disagree and then play victim when you get put in your place, that’s hypocrisy. Just as I put up with the opinions of others, no matter how unreasonable, I expect others to put up with mine.

            Making me say things I did not won’t help you but just shed some light on your lack of honnesty.

            My last post was trying a kind of reaching out, but you behave like a pure Eli clone.

          • PsychoMantis18

            After all that bullshit about how you’ve been polite and that none of my descriptions fitted your posts, you end with ‘you behave like a pure Eli clone’.

            So I should take that as part of your polite disposition?

            Man, Tom asked “Am I the only who feels irritated at the hatred MGSV is getting?”.
            I just guessed who they usually are.

            Do you hate V ?

            I am sure not since, as you kindly said, you spend nearly the same amount of time than me on it (through 2 playthroughs for me, 70 hrs for the first one).

            I am sure you don’t hate V for also the nice thing you said about how you look forward every day to put your hands on it.

            See, we are bros share more common points than it seemed at first glance, comrade ! ;D

            I was just targeting pure and non objective haters. You are clearly not one of them, so I technically never said anything wrong to you. I was just slightly exasperated by your last answer, you are apparently not a Eli clone neither, sorry about that. ;).

            Back to your question, some users here know that I am not satisfied with the actual chapter structure / articulation (along with couple of slight little imperfections), feeling that Chapter 1 was assembled with most missions of the game.
            However, there is a lot of work stored in this MG (even story wise) and I feel sad for KP because I guess their efforts were a bit sabotaged by you know who (As you said, there is hopefully more to come). In all cases, I feel having a quite and still very large / huge quantity of MG-entertainment, in what was released.

            Sorry if I appear too much praising KP but, for me it is always more tech-wise than the average. MG did not have always so much room for the story in their roms, but were always technically always doing their maximum to satisfy us, like no other studio. I like V story, but technically and as a programmer myself, I am literally blasted at how strong and clean they always were. They kept doing as much as possible for us during all these years.
            You know, game development is a extremely hard discipline and V is a top-notch technical Rolls Roys at least in this field. Yet for that, V certainly not deserve the level of hatred that Tom was talking about.
            I am glad our exchanges finally cooled down. Have a nice day.

            I don’t hate the game, I thought it was a brilliant but emotionally underwhelming entry in the series. I’m still hopeful that there will be more content to come due to Kojima’s cryptic tweets and what not. A good comparison for me to make my point is MGS2 – it shocked and upset the audience in order to deliver its message/s, HOWEVER, it still managed to do this while giving us a great interactive-narrative. With MGSV, I feel (again, only at this point in time should story-dlc be released or new content be discovered) that it gave its message at the expense of the gaming-journey.

            Anyway…….

          • Full Options

            MGS2 did not suffered from any possible inside-job, like V apparently did.
            I am also still keeping strong hope in a dlc or an extension of any form.
            Maybe we will grab new cool Koji-hints at VGA ceremony next week, maybe not. Fingers crossed.

      Am I the only who feels irritated at the praise MGSV is getting?

      Just joking there heh, but I really do hate mgsv and I’m a loooong time fan of the series and kojima. It’s the first metal gear that had me really bored and felt like a waste of time. Kojima’s story for this game feels like a mess, for me he failed to meaningfully explore the themes on which the story relied more than ever before (it’s not action driven like previous games), probably a metal gear game is just not the right medium for that. Or perhaps the intellectual exploration is just not impressive. A bit of both for me. When I play a metal gear game, first and foremost: I want to be entertatined by the story, otherwise i could just as well play far cry 4 or read a book. Koijma said that he doesn’t want to make games that people play only because they have “nothing else better to do”. To me it seems he’s changed his mind with mgsv. It’s not a bad game, but for me it’s a bad metal gear game. This is really subjective but I’ve given my reasons. I don’t care what other people think about it, like I didn’t care with 4 (which I liked very much, despite it’s flaws and the hate it got). And I think you shouldn’t either, if you like the game then enjoy it, share with others if that’s your thing and move on.

    • XOF

      Lol youtube …. i don’t think you should take youtube comments too seriously. Fallout 4 is getting a similar hate treatment too. All in all most games these days get hate as well.

      People are allowed to dislike MGSV though for whatever reasons but I get what you mean. Some people really enjoy hating on a game for a long time so much that it turns them into a whining little demon. lol

      BUT I think the overall community on this site is great. Some people here don’t like the game but still respect fans that do, which is cool. This is how this MGI site differs from mainstream social media sites. πŸ™‚
      There were a few bad eggs here, but I think they left or got banned. lol

      You’re mistaken, the bandwagon is for all those who give it endless praises.

    • Gatsu

      You’re definitely not the only one friend :). It’s the same with many new games too, which I think is annoying.

      It’s easy to hate a game if it isn’t what you wanted. Everyone got the right to express their feelings, but to see negative comments very often can be tiring if don’t agree with them.

      Youtube commenters are often quite horrible and gamers who didn’t get to experience older consoles from 90s etc, are somewhat spoiled with high tech graphics and other stuff. They complain the most perhaps of things I’m okey with.

      About MGSV hate, imo it’s sad that so many aren’t satisfied with Kojima’s last MG. But can’t be helped :). I love it, but I had (like everyone) imagined parts of it being different. Still, it remains amazing despitenot being what I expected. I’m usually a happy dude so it’s hard for me to hate things anyway haha. Maybe after 5-10 years fans change their mind of MGSV.

        I totally respect what you said, man. Despite the abundant hatred from idiots on sites such as YouTube, that doesn’t change the fact that Kojima and his team tried their absolute hardest with this game and they pulled off an excellent effort for what might be Kojima’s last Metal Gear game.
        On another note, if you’re familiar with YouTube user, YongYea, you may want to see this video because he does bring up some interesting points.

        • Alex

          MGS4 revealed that almost everything we had seen from him was a facade in efforts to take down the Patriots from within, and that who he’s really been working for all along was Big Boss. MGSV gives us refreshing time with Adam, the man behind the Ocelot facade. Ocelot over the series has evolved a ton similar to Big Boss. What they were made for initially is a 180 by who they really are in the end. In 1 and 2 he was the bastard we wanted to see dead but managing to always get away (despite more powerful villains dieing) while manipulating people and events. By the end of 4 and V he had become an unsung hero of the series from behind the scenes, the son of The Boss. MGS4 final boss fight wasn’t just a Liquid rematch, it was also metaphors for Big Boss vs Ocelot and the biological son of The Boss vs the spiritual son of The Boss. You’ll see a lot of similar comments highly rated in that video. Its shocking how Yong overlooked all this given how great his analytical skills are and how much I myself have learned from him.

    Hello again,guys.
    A few days ago I decided to play some missions with “Flaming Buffalo”.The results were really funny:

    I started a main mission and … Starring Punished “Venom” Snake?!
    http://8pic.ir/images/bdnrw5epji9m2k3jcnwj.jpg
    Boss?!

    Okay,Miller was stupid enough to call me Boss.Let’s just return to Mother Base.
    Oh,these two are stupid like Miller.They think I’m Snake,lol.”Staff Morale Increased”,lol.

    http://8pic.ir/images/kg8597ehrmxjovq301xj.jpg
    Guess what:Paz is stupid,too.She thinks I’m Snake,lol.The most funny part is that Flaming Buffalo is hallucinating something completely irrelevant to her.

    http://8pic.ir/images/rcdaxsd1h7fwh87x9fr6.jpg

    I found this funny and weird at the same time.I don’t know what to call it.Developer’s mistake,bug…
    The interesting part is this exact team developed a game called METAL GEAR SOLID:PEACE WALKER in 2010 and that game didn’t have these types of problems.Looks like they completely forgot about that game.

    • Full Options

      Jan am ;), “Boss” could still work because she can be the Boss / Chief-wise of MB. πŸ˜€ For Paz and the rest, I would have preferred them readying Battle Gear as a new buddy rather than fine-tuning those elements. Turns out they did not have enough time for all cases. πŸ™
      Readying every single voices combination with that much avatar choices would have been very fun but too tedious for a that tiny audience to such details, considering the on-going mess in the studio.

      • Venom_Sina

        Salam.You see,PW’s doing wasn’t really special.There was a single dialogue by Miller that only played when you chose a different soldier than Snake.It wasn’t a brilliant job,but it was satisfying.They could’ve done it for TPP,too.Easily.There’s no need for a complex dialogue like:”Okay Flaming Buffalo,go out there and get the job done”.A simple scripted dialogue that makes sense can satisfy the player.

        That Paz scene is unacceptable.It’s a related scene to Venom,not Buffalo.I’m sure V fans will find something to satisfy themselves,something like:”Kojima wanted to break the 4th wall…”.But it won’t change the fact that they made a funny mistake.

        • Full Options

          Interesting, there is always a solution by also articulating the dialogs to get something satisfying but it is a lot of effort, time. Script is ok for portable, they maybe guessed right (we could discuss that) but for AAA, they want something like “cinema” and the audio has to be taken care of / important on their next gens console products. Apparently “more”. In a perfect world, audio would have been perfectly handled in PW on PSP, but you are right, text is fine if all of these tasks are too difficult.

          • Gatsu

            Haha xD

    • I disagree with that opinion.
      There were circumstances where he should not be a crazy ass character from before + the story is really grounded this time around. This is the end of the Cold War Era as we speak. There was absolute no reason to show his wild cards to everyone. Ocelot is nuts, but he is also smart. He is not in the position to be a badass in MB. He was in a position as a Spy and the guy that recruits other soldiers and remember that he is the ONLY CHARACTER in the game that has not lost anything. But everyone else there lost a limb, family member or a friend, so they have a reason to be what they are.

      and btw, if you remember MGS2 where Ocelot spoke for the first time with Solidus, he was also, not crazy or anything.

      • Gatsu

        I agree pretty much with what you said Golgari. The circumstances are different so he isn’t behaving the same way as before. I’m not sure who to pick if I have to choose a most disappointing character.

      • Full Options

        Correct, we first discovered Ocelot from Solid’s / enemy perspective hereby merciless in a real fun and original manner. Sadistic towards his enemies and full of very funny behaviors.

        Here, we were shown Ocelot from Big Boss’s and Venom perspective, a friendship that slowly grown from their first meeting. An admiration ignited by wondering why Jack is keeping sparing his life while teaching him at the same time precious combat tricks.

        I think it was rather pleasant to see him in the shoes of a really cool combat adviser for mother base fellows.
        A kind of way to say, “better to be on Ocelot’s side than against him”.

    • BurntFM

          • Full Options

            Looks like this project had some commercial ambitions. Probably someone will invalidate, but I think that if individuals freely release it without expecting any business on top of it, Konami would have no legal breach to shut down the project. Although that sounds really improbable because beside tons of efforts, it would also require a lot of generosity. I think some cool nerds programmers could achieve this in a “for-fun” spirit. Console manufacturers would certainly not let such title submission go through their store (too afraid of legal waves with Konami), even “free to play”, but the game could be only targeting pc’s under a form of code fan-art or something. In all cases, they should make sure with lawyers that there is actually 0 risk to be sued by Konami.

        Yea Konami Twitter doesn’t really represent Konami

    People wanted this MP to be like other MPs, so they whined about everything that made this game different. Walker Gears can be removed, CQC is no longer affective, and infiltrators were weakened because they didn’t need to take cover and shoot like other classes had to. They had the best chance at sneaking up on you and throwing you to a knockout. What else do you expect from an infiltrator? Everybody on MP games are too used to run and gun kills. I don’t think they were ready for something so different to take them out, so they complained about it. Infiltrators being furthest from run and gunner got nerfed. Now it’s mostly run and gun like your standard MP. No one wants to risk it. Why did you all demand a unique multiplayer to get so overly adjusted and obliterated to the point where it’s no longer unique? The game had bugs and server problems. It didn’t need to be so scrutinized for being different. I played all three classes and enjoyed them the same. Small touch ups on mobility, protected fultons from traitor teammates, and CQC range are really the only big changes I saw the game needed “round/match” wise. Now I don’t even touch the game. I’ve done all you can do in the open-world and MGO was my way of continuing Metal Gear TPP. Now the game sadly collects dust thanks to all who couldn’t handle a different type of MP in the year 2015.
