    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • Congratulations. Well deserved.

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    Well deserved, hopefully it kills it at The Game Awards today.

  • Danny Patten
    • Gatsu

      Yeah and they didn’t even let him get some awards in the past months before TPP released :(. When no one went to receive them. Konami, we fans don’t forget who created the game >:C.

      • Danny Patten

        Konami is just a little bitch…I don’t understand that unprofessional behavior. I mean what could possibly have happened between Hideo and Konami that they act like little brats? Did Hideo screw the CEOs wife or something? Did the stole billions of $ into his private fund? Did he kill the CEOs hamster? Like what gives…I somehow have the feeling that proper beating would solve some issues.

        • Full Options

          Agreed, this was sooo hysterically childish. It is weird, I never saw a Japanese international group react like little bird droppings as such. They always top-control their com !? Must be personal problems with HK or the biggest prank of the universe, but nothing professional at all ??

  • JJBYACH

    Hope this wins. I just watched the Elegia trailer for the first time since the game came out – and holy shit, I got chills all over my back, I remembered the hype train leading up to it, the immediate reactions of me and all you fans watching the trailer and wow, I realised that I don’t think I will ever have that experience again with any other piece of entertainment in any medium. So the point of my irreverent rambling is that even if the game wasn’t exactly what I wanted (it’s still GOTY potential in my opinion), the hype and anticipation and theorising and debating and all those memes leading up to its release more than warrants this games’ existence. GG Kojima. GG…

    • Gatsu

      I know what you mean JJ, I watched the Elegia trailer maybe first time since release of TPP about a week ago. It still gives me the feels…Oh maan ;D, so freaking awesome!

      The song and scenes fit so well together. I just can’t get enough of them haha. I remember when Elegia trailer debuted, we had like 100 comments in the article in 5 seconds lol. I’ll never forget the fun hype train I had with you brothers for 2-3 years ^_^.

      I don’t think I will experience something like that again, I’m excited for some upcoming games but it’s nothing compared to how I waited for my lovely MGSV <(^-^<). All the theories etc…and people going crazy.

        Hopefully, Krapnami will put cool fanboys devs on the franchise.
        And we will however keep hyping all future Koji-Products specially here !

        • Gatsu

          Yeah, if Kojima-san does something spectacular in the future, maybe I will re-live this hype. He knows how to give me the feels :D.

            Yeah, no worries, I am sure we will rike again several times before his retreat !

      • we had a lot of fun along the way didn’t we? it certainly was great to spend that time here on the informer

    • OcelotSilver

      I completely agree. Lead up to the Phantom Pain with MGS fanbase created some of best times i had in my entire life.

      It’s not lex, it’s his son Lex Jr. that’s what i’ve heard. But man.. zack snyder is my hideo kojima of movies.. also Christopher Nolan is awesome. This movie is most likely gonna be my second favourite superhero movie after The Dark Knight.. #TeamBatman

      • Full Options

        I really appreciate the idea of having Affleck as Bruce Wayne too. The role likely suits him like a glove !

        • FoxTamerMGO

          Affleck’s acting is superb! People disliked him at first.. but i knew he had it in him <3 now people are starting to like him.. I wonder if that would ever happen with jesse Eisenberg'

          • Full Options

            Yeah, Affleck always had a lot of volume. I guess he could have been better directed sooner, but everybody has the full picture now. Jesse Eisenberg has an extremely high potential. The problem with big talents is that they are stuck to their very first roles and that nuts producers think of them as a possible solution for their characters, instead of realizing that such talents can play any role.

      • Gatsu

        Okey thanks for the clarification :).

    • Lewis

      I really love Eisenberg’s Lex. I know he is non canon, but I love when designers try a clever change. Hope he will have some ground behind that madness. Not like “I’m mad, look at me”, but really proper dark. Some of his quotes I quite like already.

    • i don’t know bro i was really excited at the moment (should this be considered a spoiler?) they show doomsday but at the same time i thought he looked horrible, it was a weird mix of feeling at the same time. coolness/sickness i seriously wonder how some of the people behind movie designs come up with this stuff, it’s like they try to be as far as the comic imagery as possible, i get that the movies have their own look but come on he’s just really ugly lol. i hope he kinds of “evolve” trough the film and that what was shown isn’t his final appearance.

      all this design talk only makes me worry about the the possibility of a Lobo movie on the future /:

  • OcelotSilver

    Congrats! These awards are well deserved. And i hope MGSV gets for awards and recognition for it’s groundbreaking stealth gameplay.

    • “And i hope MGSV gets for awards and recognition for it’s groundbreaking stealth gameplay.”

      Million times – This. Can’t agree more. In it’s genre MGSV is the best. End of story. Nothing can’t compare.

      • Gatsu

        Indeed 😀 !

  • Gatsu

    It would be great to see something more of this in Game Awards.

    • Mr.Pony

      This looks like shadow of the colossus meets Assassin’s creed. Seems fun.

      • Gatsu

        Yep, it’s PC exclusive though which is quite rare these days. But finally getting another game similar to SotC, I just hope it ends up being good :).

        • Mr.Pony

          PC exclusive?! wow last time i heard of something like that it must have been an RTS like Rise of Nations or similiar xD.

  • PrinceHeir

    Reason why Yakuza 0 deserves in the list and even higher 🙂

    Please buy Yakuza 5 to somehow convince Sega to bring 0, Kiwami(Remake 1), 6 and even Ishin here someday ^^

  • MrVux007

    Really saddening ,that Kojima wasn’t there when the rewards were received … but

    “Somewhere out there…i know he is laughing”

    • Full Options

      On the other hand, not saddening at all to see the whole Kojima Production crew at VGA. 😀

  • Lewis

    https://twitter.com/thegameawards/status/672471924149096448

    Guys, guys. What. The. Fuck. Is it happening?

    • They better have something after all this hyping. 😛

      • Lewis

        Yeah, like…all those rumors and him going to VGA is nothing, NOTHING compared to this tweet. If it turns out to be nothing, this tweet would be just laughing at fans.

    • Guys, just calm down.
      I don’t think there will be something interesting. Don’t expect much.

      Maybe he will be on stage to recieve the award.

      • Lewis

        Well, I won’t watch the show live, cause it’s late night in my country and I have to go to work tomorrow, so I will read it in the news and won’t get shocked if it’s a fail. But still…noone should hype people with such a tweet “just” for a reward.

        • But it’s just a tweet and nothing more. Maybe TGA tweet just hinted at Kojima presence at the stage.
          He won’t announce something new… Too early for that.

          • Lewis

            Well, he was listed. And Kojima is so important, to get his own, personal tweet?

            Too early? I would say 3 months too late.

          • If you look at the TGA Awards twitter, there are a lot of personal tweets. Hideo Kojima is always important. He is a famous game designer, ofc, tweeting him something will generate some hype.

          • Lewis

            Wow, thanks for the shot of “Cool Down”, man 🙂
            Feeling better now)

          • True, but even if he’s just on the stage that would be nice, as we have barely seen him appear anywhere since this whole thing started with Konami.

          • Full Options

            Ya, I am looking forward to see him just “move” for real / live. And tell us something after all he could read here and there.
            At worst, the Dev award will just yet make my day.

          • Gatsu

            “Ya, I am looking forward to see him just “move” for real / live.”

            Yeah, instead of being chained up in some Konami’s underground basement prison.

          • “Tell me where he is. Where is Hideo? Where is Kojima?”

          • Full Options

            If he has nothing crispy, I would hate being in his shoes now… But Kojima Sensei is always on top of things, like forever. If they f.ckd him, I am sure he’ll have the most painful revenge for them… Success. It begun. Those Best PS Game award plus this platinum now are just the least that could be done.

          • Greyfox98

            I understood that reference

            Konami jailed themselves, Hideo is free now. I love Konami since so long. Not only for Hideo’s work, but here… My flag is dark red because of blood. Destroying slowly Konami like that could have worked, I am afraid to say, but don’t they touch Hideo…

      I don’t see the problem. Just a guy going to a show. It’s not big deal.

  • Mr. Sir Shpee
    • Mr.Pony

      There are no brakes on the hype train

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        I always believed in the ruse cruise but I’m sold now. I’m going to cry myself to sleep if nothing happens

        • Mr.Pony

          I believe on the ruse cruise too but I’m not convinced it will be now. I think we will only hear about it at the launch of MGO on PC. And yet… http://thesnakesoup.org/junkimg/articles/gameover/iwanttobelieve.jpg

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            Then why would there be all this stuff about Geoff Keighley having his MGSV good luck charm, or making a big deal about Hideo being there? Plus Kiefer, Donna, and Stefanie are all there. The composer is there, too, but that is likely because it’s up for best soundtrack. Either way, I think something’s up. Latest I give it is March, when the special soundtrack CD with missing tracks is added, because it could easily contain Chapter 3’s music too.

          • Mr.Pony

            Last year at some convention at Las Vegas Kiefer introduced Kojima and MGS and if i remember correctly there was no new information about the game coming from that convention at the time, i think it’s just the awards stuff and maybe a bit of Trolljima as usual.

          • Mr. Sir Shpee

            There was, they showed MGO3 and had the world premiere of gameplay. Strikes me as funny that Kiefer would be there if there is nothing new. That being said, he was pretty dedicated to the MGSV project. Then Donna and Stefanie are there, but apparently they had planned to go anyway. I don’t know, but as it stands SOMETHING is going down.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    I wanted to share something the MGS community might like.

    Remember this unofficial track for Ground Zeroes released back in 2012? It was a fanmade song by Daniel James. Check out the description and comments.

    Fast forward to 2015 and there he is… His dream came true.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvCV3dC2Pz4

    And last is a video were he shows us his studio, talks about the sounds he used in MGSV and about flying to L.A. for the Game Awards.

    Check out his channel.

    • Spectralbuttplug

      • Gatsu

        Why they gotta be such dicks and not let him get them awards even for once :(. Geoff was right though, our thoughts were with him.

        Just would’ve been great to see him live after a long time. ..

    No way!!! Are they serious? I don’t know guys… It’s too strange. First they announce Hideo’s presence, let that hype grow just to say Konami bla bla bla. If they knew it they should have told us. Unless there something under that.

  • SNKtheStampede

    Good Night guys.

  • Mr. Sir Shpee

    That was weird as shit. I don’t even know what to say at this point. Fuck Konami. It’s super fishy that Geoff was tweeting at Kojima just six hours ago about being ready for the show. One would assume Kojima would have left early enough to be there today, right? How would they not know about Konami’s bullshit ahead of time? Either way, I’m extremely disappointed.

  • Here is a video from the show:

    Konami does not give a shit anymore.

    P.S. Another thing I disliked that Jade Raymond did some shitty joke about voice acting…

    • Gatsu

      Ffs they don’t care.or have any respect, goddamit!… 🙁

      So ridiculous that he can’t even go to LA omfg! This is sad, so sad ;C

  • FMercenary

    How about that jab at David Hayter? I was like, “Oh, shit! Hell nah!”.

    • She was drunk. She could not even announce properly the award.
      If Jade Raymond wanted to joke about Konami, she choose poor joke because I’m not sure that Konami was responsible for the Kiefer Sutherland’s contract.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        What was the show?

      • Gatsu

        Was this in Game Awards? I stopped after Stefanie sang. Jade should keep her mouth shut :(.

        • FMercenary

          It was at this part. Now that I think about it, I guess the jab can be perceived going both ways(towards David or Kiefer), depending on how you look at it.

          • Gatsu

            Wow, that was a mayor fuck up all around. Jade Raymond is still a babe tho. lol and going back to early articles about Ubisoft parties, it’s no lie she likes to party so I guess she had a few drinks. Remember that she did that colab with Kojima in MGS4 where they put the Assassin outfit in the game so I guess she’s still salty about that whole David Hayter thing. I’m still salty too but I just don’t talk about out it :'(

  • Gatsu

    Hopefully see Kojima 2016 as Geoff said…

    • With a Game announcement!

      • Gatsu

  • FMercenary

    I thought the category for “Trending Gamer” was unnecessary, since it resulted in an ongoing speech of who knows what from Greg Miller.

    • hunner

      His speech was longer than ground zeroes

    Holy crap…the quantity of displeasure in the comment section for ALL sites is shocking…

    first i see people praise Witcher 3 as the masterpiece and now all i see is “Witcher 3 is over-hyped buggy garbage” “Bloodborne robbed again” “Witcher 3 worst gameplay evaah,MGSV should have won” etc etc…

    People are acting like the awards are making one game better then the other,when in the end they are all diamonds in the rough…why? Cuz different people,different preference ffs

    Always remember what this fool said :

    “The only GOTY,that truly matters, is you own” remember that

    Now back to the more important matter,gawd……that Stephanie voice(aldo i could see she is nervous as heck)…really nice song and beautiful voice….Congrats to all studios/games that won the awards!

    • hahah yeah she was so nervous!!

    • Yeah, she isn’t really a singer to begin with and had to be coached by Donna to sing for TPP (she was really nervous for that as well). It’s one thing to do it in a studio, but live on stage is something else! Much respect to her, and the background choir was epic too.

    Hideo Kojima acts as kind of ambassador for an audience mainly composed of kids.

    I have to say that I am shocked by this incredible and so disastrous PR demonstration of Konami. All this announced at the Game Awards BTW ! Honestly, I am having hard time to figure out how they could have more f.ckd up all this ?

    So basically, Konami speak to their customer base, again mainly composed of kids, with lawyers…

    All this to forbid a great artist to receive his prizes…

    This is how they spend our money, you know ?
    To pay lawyers to send letters like that to Hideo… This is how they used our 60 bucks, but now we have a rather complete perspective.

    Congratulations Konami, you have just wrought barely 6-10 millions of fresh new Konami haters, that are mostly kids. And so angry ones, I may add.

    They will have a full picture of who you are their entire lives. In all this sadness, at least they received a lesson about how this world can be cruel and dishonest, through your shameful behavior.

    I am so sad for Hideo. Now we have a pretty clear confirmation that he is fighting alone for month now against this MF international full of cowards corporation. He could neither ask for our help / support because he was legally gagged. He needs our support more than ever, and since fucking months now.

    I am so sad for Metal Gear because now we have the confirmation that Hideo was about to give us something probably 2 times bigger and far more polished than what we received.

    Why don’t they stick their lawyers in a place they think is best ? Because those lawyers are yet already deep inside that place.

    Turns out their heads are so full of SHIT that we won’t even need to bash them, in order to have the pleasure to see them miserably sink, hopefully asap.

    Konami, you deserve to be said what’s considered as the worst thing to say to somebody in Japan :

    恥を知れ
    (Hajiwoshire – Shame on you)

  • SNKtheStampede

    If that’s all true, I’m very angry with those who organized the show because they exploited the hype to get more viewers from all around the world, when they must have known it already for an amount of time sufficient to warn the public of Hideo’s absence. They could have still done that tribute, and they would have avoided that giant wave of collective hatred that rose in real time. If you add that shitty talking about voice actors by jade raymond, then you got a nice picture of the total nonsense happening around V and Kojima-san. We will always be with you Boss!
