It’s Christmas, and Kojima Productions wishes us happy holidays, together with a nice piece of artwork by Yoji Shinkawa.

Happy holidays!

Speaking of Shinkawa drawings, a few days ago Kojima shared the original drawing for the Kojima Productions logo.

“KJP logo. As mentioned, there’s rest of the body setting I want u to imagine. Here’s the head part drawn by Yoji.”

The logo also decorates a new iPhone case by GILD design, possibly something they will sell in the official KP store, but no word on that yet.

Happy holidays to everyone from us as well! To conclude, here’s White Christmas by Stefanie Joosten and Donna Burke.

    Merry Christmas everyone! πŸ™‚
    I hope Christmas isn’t always about getting presents/gifts or getting laid (haha!), but spending time with your family and friends (I know, cheesy right?).

    Since this is a Metal Gear site, here’s a fun Christmas MGS fact if you didn’t know already:
    Big Boss really believes in Santa Claus! πŸ˜€

    (This tape also possibly foreshadows Huey’s downfall in TPP, because he dared laughed at Big Boss on this matter haha).

    • Spectralbuttplug

      I LISTENED TO ALL THE TAPES ON YT.TOO BAD HE BECOMES ANA SSHOLE

    It’s much appreciated that the community here is still strong after TPP release, when some thought it might disappear :D. Its been almost 3 years visiting here for me and I just cant stay away, I love MGI because of y’all I hope to share times with you all next year too, you brothers rock ^_^.

    While here with my other family, I received a nice gift from big brother lol. We have the habit of buying shitty movies for each other haha xD… He gave me Toxic Avenger-movie collection from 1984 :P. I would post pic but phone lagging. Peace!

      Yesterday I did all of the Side Ops. Really NOT proud of myself. Torture, nothing less.

      • vic boss

        I know same thing happened to me, I should have finished the side ops before I did the main missions.

    • Danny Patten

      That Raiden suit tho…damn

    Merry Christmas to all of you celebrating today!

  • Spectralbuttplug

    I find it weird no one talked about the link Jav showed.That The cut content and downgrade happened due to KONAMI forcing a last ten version

    • Gatsu

      I read it on N4G. But I try to control my f-Konami comments during this time of year.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Yeah

      • Spectralbuttplug

        I need to control my anger after what happened here in September .(Oh fuck I just blew my cover)

        • Gatsu

          Don’t worry I’ve known for a while who you are ;).

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Euhhhhhhhh I feel so satisified

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Keep that a secret plz

          • Spectralbuttplug

            A phantom of the mightiest prick in MGI.Mr l……….(Well you know my old nickname and real name)

          • Gatsu

            That’s a bit too much mate, it’s all in the past :).

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Haha

      • Alex

        Can I have this link you guys are talking about?

        • Gatsu

          I think the one I read was this:
          http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/12/22/metal-gear-solid-v-keeping-ps3xbox-360-caused-big-problems-for-the-devs-heres-how-it-was-solved/

          “According to Merceron, one of the big problems encountered by the developers of Metal Gear Solid V was
          that the management did not want to get rid of PS3 and Xbox 360 as
          platforms, and they wanted to absolutely support PC, new generation
          consoles and old generation ones at the same time.

          Many tried to convince the management to get rid of the old-gen consoles, even if in the end Merceron believes that they were right to keep them. It brought about many problems for the developers”

          Still, I’m happy it released for PC too. One of the best PC ports I ever played.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Cool

          • Alex

            I read that as more about development problems in general, like getting their assets to run and such, rather than cutting content for last-gen and PC. It would’ve been hella easier if they just had 2 consoles to focus on, like most games do. And the FOX Engine was created with this purpose in mind, to have assets that can easily be scaled up or down for any platform. So while Konami wanted the game on all platforms, Kojima and crew created the FOX Engine to make that happen. I doubt they fought about it in the later years, they just had a ton of stress and such which is the nature of making games.

  • Venom_Sina

    After 4 months,I still don’t get the hallway scene from launch trailer.Let’s take a look:
    This scene is from MGS3.Seems pretty normal:
    http://8pic.ir/images/kgczfc6yaei6gsh2b8el.jpg
    PW,again normal:
    http://8pic.ir/images/8ly3n0h1f6s3fud0p868.jpg
    GZ,still normal:
    http://8pic.ir/images/13ryx0zarzbs8g2163yl.jpg
    TPP,eh,not really normal,but I think we can accept that:
    http://8pic.ir/images/530gnzsf69zabrzxqlkg.jpg
    Now WTF is this?Probably a scene from MG2,but doesn’t make sense (because of that horn,you know what I’m talking about):
    http://8pic.ir/images/ek8tv2tk78ptj8vdzm7x.jpg
    And this is another nonsense:
    http://8pic.ir/images/dhayg7raa1vv3n9vjjw1.jpg
    What’s your take on this,guys?

    • Spectralbuttplug

      The scene is tpp is normal.In every pic there is big boss except the last where sf is shown but that is symbolism

    • SNKtheStampede

      By what we had from the game, leaving Chapter 3 speculations out, I can only interpret the hallway scene as metaphorical for V becoming a demon, after SPOILER being deprived of his identity for the sake of BB. The comparison with Skullface is very clear: both of theme are phantoms created by Zero to keep BB safe. The burning pic could be a hint to look under V’s physiognomy and wonder if it would still be BB without that… or it serves in pair with the last pic to show that under a phantom there’s always a skull, a human being sacrificed.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        V IS BB U…….
        BTW WHERE IS THAT PIC WITH NAKED SNAKE WITH HIS LEATHER JACKET TYING V IN HIS NAKED OUTFIT WITHA METAL CHAIN

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,we can always find reasons that makes sense.Your reason is good,but I don’t think it’s THAT complex.The problem I have with this is the way Kojima edited this.At first it seems that Kojima is reviewing BB’s saga,but when you finish the actual game…
        The marketing campaign for V is full of lies.Showing something in the launch trailer and deliver another thing…Kojima lied to the fans and that’s a bad thing imo.

        • Mr.Pony

          To me the trailer could be two things, its either pure Trolljima making us believe the story would about BB turning evil, or its something along the lines of Konami not being done with MGS and them wanting to continue the BB arc, and this is the long run story, the good man who turns evil. I could see Konami going, “hey you need another year to finish that? No, just wrap it to make sense, and we will continue the story on another MGS”

        • SNKtheStampede

          Well, you are right, it surely creates false expectations. One thing I supposed was that we could get that face as final stage of Demon Snake… But after MGS2 we all should know Kojima likes deceiving fans. I understand people getting angry for that, but I think that in the future we will all appreciate the boldness only Kojima demonstrates on exploiting media and marketing. I find TPP marketing campaign the best and most memorable in gaming industry.

          • Mr.Pony

            It would be even better it there was a chapter 3, playing with the concept of phantom pain with the players, the ultimate Kojima move.

          • NakedSnake85

            i think that everything is scripted.. a little exercise set up by…

        • Jav

          Its just that, a lie. He told us a lot of things that the game doesnt have.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            KONAMI man

        • XOF

          “Showing something in the launch trailer and deliver another thing… Kojima lied to the fans and that’s a bad thing imo”

          Yeah, he did that with the marketing/ trailer for MGS2 as well ….
          But yes you are right, fans got angry at Kojima for playing as a different character for both MGS2 (eventually after 5 – 10 years later, people got over it) and MGSV.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah,he did it for MGS2 as well,but at least that game had a fantastic story,and we got Solid Snake as a support character…It was way better (and had less lies) than marketing campaign of V imo.

          • XOF

            Well you see that’s the problem. People back then didn’t want Solid Snake as a support character. They wanted to play as him in MGS2 (well you did but only in the tanker mission) but instead got Raiden. While you enjoyed the story which is cool (got critical acclaim from reviewers as well), there were people that hated the switch so much they hated on the story (and Kojima) as well. It took YEARS for people to interpret/analyse the themes presented in MGS2 and eventually most of them got over it or appreciated it.

            I’m not saying TPP will get the similar treatment as MGS2, because I can’t predict the future lol. It might, or might not ….

            In terms of marketing, it doesn’t matter which campaign did it better, a lie is a lie. But TPP was missing story content and tracks for the soundtrack which is simply unacceptable so you are correct in that sense. But If you are talking about missing gameplay elements/mechanics, things do get cut in production for whatever reasons. This happens for ALL games out there. That’s what gameplay demos are used for, to showcase the alpha/beta build of the game not the final build.

    • Gatsu

      He made scenes specifically for the trailers. Yea the trailers tricked me too, but I’m okey with it now. It made the twist better when trailers didn’t confirm I was playing another dude.

      Or well, back then I didnt want to believe that I’m not him.

      • Mr.Pony

        Such lust to see a good man turn evil, whooooooooo?! To be honest i still want to see the arc that they kind of promised on those trailers, i find it more interesting. That “Shinning Lights” would have been such a good breaking point, the beginning of the descent into evil. God the feels on the last room…

        • Gatsu

          Agreed :).

    • MichaelPayneV

      My Take, The Hallway is a Metaohor of Venom going through different Stages, first believing he is John, then after finding out who he really is, after being “killed” by Solid, coming back as the villain itself, Skull Face, which could be the one that was behind everything in SS Saga, the Phantom that we never saw and will never see, unless we get the new Series showing us SS Saga from a different Perspective!

      It could also show that they used James Horan’s Head for Snake, and have it animated by Kiefer!

  • NakedSnake85

    merry christmas ! a gift from me ! Filandrianos #14 on espionage rankings (ps3)

    • Tong Ninja

      XD “leguywhodrownedquiet”, yes you’re the French guy with the short temper. πŸ˜›
      Good thing you don’t have that username anymore, because you got killed by Quiet! haha

      Hopefully you don’t get banned anymore. Just take it easy on the comments. Relax and chill.
      Happy holidays! πŸ™‚

      • Spectralbuttplug

        I’m not French!Im Mauritian !

        • Tong Ninja

          Sorry, my bad. But you do speak french though. πŸ™‚

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Yes I do

      • Spectralbuttplug

        You just spoiled the surprise :(.Happy holidays man!

      • Gatsu

        Ouch, that Quiet joke. lol :3

    • Gatsu

      Something that happened in PT O_o… must have been scary as f*ck.

      All is forgiven and that sounds like an interesting story, but no need to tell :D… I’m sure that mysterious Finnish dude is sorry, if acted like a douchebag in the past.

      Merry xmas too dear bro :).

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Nah it was just two cockroaches copulating.Oops sorry that might sound really disgusting.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        That mysterious Finnish guy was a douchebag?I SAID HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST POSITIVE GUYS I MET AND THAT GUY IS YOU

        • Gatsu

          I know you did, what I’m saying I never liked banning anyone xD… (Except those random trolls).

          But lets forget the bad stuff and look forward to a new happy year.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Yeah!

          • Spectralbuttplug

            How did you Find out that I am leguy?

          • Gatsu

            Some of your comments felt similar, so I was pretty sure :).

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Haha.Give me an example.The caps lock.The non stop insulting.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Wait a sec I never met you in real life.

  • Xilurm

    Hey guys, is there some secret in leveling up the stats of the other characters without sending them on missions but just playing with them instead?

    • NakedSnake85

      send them out to dispatch missions. make fob infiltrations with them and defend your base selecting them. this will earn the specific character 3 medals! try it

      • Xilurm

        Sending them out to dispatch missions might get them killed no?

  • Mini gear

    dang ive been gone for a while 0_0

    • Spectralbuttplug

      Huh?

    • Gatsu

      Heyyyy welcome back Mini :D, good to see you bro! Yea some took longer breaks from MGI xD haha.

      I hope you enjoyed TPP ;). Btw happy holidays :)!

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    Fantastic work by Yoji Shinkawa! I wonder who She is? Will we see her in new Hideo Kojima? Maybe. She looks like one of a Bond women.

    I have a question about Metal Gear 5. I stopped playing now and Im thinking… what about my mother base?
    Will it will be always open to other players to steal my containers and materials or nuclear weapons? Or is there a way to close it when You are not playing?

    • Tong Ninja

      No idea who she is … the less I know the better. πŸ™‚

      I’ve stopped playing as well but unfortunately, other players will be able steal your containers/staff members/ materials/ etc, even when you are not playing the game. One way to prevent this, is to buy Mother Base insurance using real money. The other way is to simply NOT go online when playing TPP haha. Always stay offline.

      • ADAMJENSEN13

        Thanks for reply.
        Really?! Haha… Thats too bad. So If I will play it next year in case I will probably have nothing left in my mother base…heh. Funny.
        Yeah. Knowing less is better. πŸ™‚
        Only curiours If Hideo Kojima trying to tease us His new game.

        • Gatsu

          Also you should add lots of players as supporters from relationship window. I added many random people and some have defended my base, when I’ve been away taking breaks from TPP.

          • ADAMJENSEN13

            I can do that? WOW! I didnt know. I saw some that relationship in menu but I thought You must have gold(I have xbox360) like invading other mother bases to make some relationships. Thanks for help.

          • Xilurm

            Well I haven’t done an FOB invasion ever and my rank stays way too low and nobody attacks me.

          • ADAMJENSEN13

            Its really amazing! But its mega hard too. You cant retry mission if something goes wrong. If enemy sees it will get really hard. Everyone will shoot You. You still can win but its not so cool when You steal containers or soldiers when nobody sees You. Stealth is the best! I have invaded other bases 4 or 5 times but only 2 times I was able to sneak through that no one sees me. But its mega great and cool. You should try it. Metal Gear is the best!

      • Spectralbuttplug

        I am always offline since the server won’t connect

    • Spectralbuttplug

      I hope she is a protagonist and if she is a kind of bond woman like Eva (not Eva green who was awesome but Eva in mgs3) well then KOJIMA sure is using some similar plot elements in mgs.

      • ADAMJENSEN13

        Oh Yeah. I didnt watch spectre yet, but Eva green was the best Bond woman in movies with Daniel Craig. and She was fantastic as Ava in Sin City a dame to kill for.
        Lets hope this Yoji Shinkawa art is some kind of teaser and we will see Hideo Kojima very soon πŸ™‚

  • Jav

    I just opened the game and didn’t know what to do. In 3 days my 2nd fob will be complete. I need new content like right now.

  • Venom_Sina

    Nyxus,are you receiving?We’re still here,lol.

    • Nyxus is on his ritual holiday break. This happens every year. He’ll update whenever possible

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,I know.I just wanted to throw some jokes,lol.

      • Next thing you know Konami HQ doesn’t exist anymore Nyxus comes back covered in blood.

  • Jav

    It’s good.

    • Isn’t it?

    • Spectralbuttplug

      Not satisfying at all when people have 100% this shit while you are stuck as you deleted your save out of rage and just finished mission 43

      • Jav

        Oh, why the rage?

        • Spectralbuttplug

          Because of fucking mission 45.Kojima definitely fucked up for this mission.

    • BurntFM

      Congrats. Welcome to the 100% club. Which I see is getting bigger here at MGI.

      • Gatsu

        I have to choose between playing 100 unfinished games or TPP to 100% :(.

        • BurntFM

          I know the feels bro.
          I finished Mad Max not too long ago and I don’t think I want to 100% it since it’s exhausting to find all scrap. I have Fallout 4 on hold just past the first mission. I am finishing up Withcer 3 Expansion finishing my Fifa15 career mode and a stack of games half finished. But being my last MGS game ever, it took priority.

      • Jav

        I am in that club like from november. I was just showing the cloth.

    • Gatsu

      You are above even Big Boss :).

      • Spectralbuttplug

        What codename shall we give him?Venom snake maybe?

  • Jav
    • Spectralbuttplug

      Lol

    • Gatsu

      That reminds me of my first time escaping from Sahel lol. XD

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Lol

  • Spectralbuttplug

    People on dark web vids on YouTube :Human experimentation is such a taboo.Its disgusting.
    KOJIMA portrays human experimentation plenty of times in mgs.Does it again in mgsv.
    Mgs:Ooh KOJIMA is an asshole.He touched no taboo .It was like a bad SCI FI shit.
    Me:*facepalm* So kidnapping a child and infecting him is funny for you.

    • Gatsu

      Yeah, some told me even here that it’s not taboo and Kojima never showed any in TPP. But imo human experiments are pretty damn taboo subject… I would like someone to explain me am I wrong and why.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Yep.At first I thought it was something SCI FI but shit like this is shown on the dark web everyday .I do kinda respect skull face for ending the suffering of the old man but that wa shorrible what he did to Chico.

        • Gatsu

          Yeah :(…poor Chico he just wanted to do good, but ended up being one of Skull Face’s toys.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Paz no longer was a traitor for me.

      • Alex

        I think people were disappointed because they were expecting you and the protagonist to be doing taboo stuff. They were combining what Kojima said with what they assumed to be subject material in the game.

        • Gatsu

          Hmmm that makes sense I guess :D, I was actually expecting something like that too but to say MGSV still had no taboo in it isn’t true imo.

        • Spectralbuttplug

          Yeah but fucking otsuka said snake was not evil.I trusted otsuka more than KOJIMA.But fuck KONAMI and not KOJIMA.And no I ain’t a KOJIMA boot licked I just say my opinion

      • Spectralbuttplug

        Oh and did I mention child labour as well as Paz removing her intestines

  • Gatsu

    Off-topic but if anyone cares the anime of Berserk is finally continuing in 2016! Those who haven’t seen or read it should check it out :), it’s really awesome with superb story, characters, bloody action and supernatural stuff in a medieval world.
    It seems to be in more CGI style like the movies.

    There’s already 90’s Berserk anime that ends after 24-26 episodes and recent movie trilogy of about same events, but manga so far has gone a lot further. Waiting for new chapters is giving me phantom pain though…

    “Synopsis-

    Guts, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces that pursue him and his woman, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength, skill, and sword, Guts must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity. Berserk is a dark and brooding story of outrageous swordplay and ominous fate, in the theme of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.”

    • Mr.Pony

      Not a big fan of anime but I’ve been leaning towards watching this one, how good is it?

      • Gatsu

        It’s f*cking cool trust me :), watching it makes you a man. The manga is rated as one of the best ever by many. But if you start watching it, well the 90’s anime is maybe better than the movie trilogy. They both miss some great and different moments from the manga though which is a shame.

        I recommend checking the original one first, but if want more fluid animation watch the trilogy.

        The animes end at the kind of moment, that makes you want to read manga and see what happens next. I read all chapters in a few days because couldn’t stop haha ;). Really emotional story with some similarity to TPP. If you ever played Dark Souls, the creator of it took inspiration of Berserk because he’s a fan.
        Here is a good review:

        • Spectralbuttplug

          Some guy respected on yt.You remember?

        • Spectralbuttplug

          Why the need to censor?

          • Gatsu

            Good question haha, changed it :D.

    • FoxTamerMGO

      I was hoping that MadHouse animates it πŸ™

      • Gatsu

        I’m just glad and excited to finally see it continue ;), some seriously awesome stuff happen in the manga so can’t wait to see them. The style in this teaser reminds me of Hellsing Ultimate a bit.

        Btw Fox is your avatar from One-Punch Man :D? I was wondering if it’s good, trying to find some good new animes or mangas to check after Monster and Blood+.

        • hunner

          OPM is a fun parody of the shounen genre. It’s not amazing but still enjoyable.

          • Gatsu

            Alrighty πŸ˜€ thanks. Maybe I will check it out!

          • hunner

            If you like Monster i would recommend Death Note. Amazing show and it’s really popular

          • Gatsu

            Hehe np I’ve seen DN and it’s one of my favorites ^^.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Hell yeah.I PREFER OLD SCHOOL ANIMES but I love dn.

          • hunner

            I agree lol. Most anime nowadays are garbage high school stories full with to much damn fan service.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Space dandy is Cowboy bepop turned wack

          • Gatsu

            Couldn’t agree more.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            Old school animes like Great Teacher Onizuka <33333333

          • Gatsu

            Dude, GTO is so amazing :D. I’m glad to see there’s bunch of older anime’s/manga’s fans here <3! I wish I had a teacher like him when I was at school haha!

            This opening still kicks ass XD.

          • FoxTamerMGO

            LOL this brings back so much memories :,,,( <3 btw, if you didn't know already.. they continued the story recently in a manga called "GTO – Paradise Lost", only 23 chapters tho πŸ™

          • Gatsu

            Hmmm I didn’t know that :), 23 is pretty little amount :C.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            French?

          • Spectralbuttplug

            Grendiser you know?The spiritual successor to mazinger z

          • FoxTamerMGO

          • Spectralbuttplug

            ROCKKKKKEEETTOOO PUNNNNCCCHHHH
            WAIT HE DOESNT SAY THAT.

        • Robin030

          imo OPM is the shit! you have to be in tho for the more than silly kind of humor it has haha but i loved it and cant wait for new episodes

        • FoxTamerMGO

          The story of One Punch Man is simple, but the execution is PHENOMENAL! Best anime of 2015 without a doubt. And the animation man.. the best thing you’ll ever witness.. especially the last episode DDDD: season 1 is only 12 episodes, you can finish it all in 4 consecutive hours xD

          • Gatsu

            Cool :D, ok I will watch it XD. Arigatou!

    • Robin030

      nice info bro!
      the 90’s series was so badass too sad it just ended like it did…
      i didnt watch the movie trilogie yet whats ur take on it can it compete with the original anime??

      • Gatsu

        I’ve watched the trilogy and it was great, but it was missing that something… It skipped some great moments with certain characters or events for example, and didn’t have same OST. There’s only so much that can be added to a trilogy, like with LOTR movies.
        http://www.animefreak.tv/watch/berserk-golden-age-chapter-i-egg-high-king-online

        Was crazy how it ends. I was shocked when I saw it maybe 10 years ago, I was first like “wtf just happened, it can’t end like this ;O”. But was so glad I found that it goes a lot further :D.

        If you read mangas bro, check the one of Berserk. It’s a masterpiece :). Read from beginning as it shows everything and in more brutal/detailed way. The original anime and movie trilogy only take maybe 1/3 or 1/4 of the story so far.

        • Robin030

          that soundtrack is awesomely terrifying πŸ˜€
          i will give the trilogie a go altho i dont really care for cgi in anime’s it somehow distracts me from the drawing. maybe i even try out reading a manga i watched countless animes over the years but never read a manga once xD
          i am so damn hyped foir that new series pls let it be awesome!

          oh btw: a good site for all your HD anime needs if u dont know it already, neatly organized and everything πŸ™‚

    Has anyone listened to any of the tracks from the MGSV: TPP Extended OST??

    If so did anyone hear this track [Regret and Acceptance] when playing TPP ? Because this track is awesome! haha πŸ™‚

    I think this was cut from the game along with the two Kingdom of the Flies tracks …. I wonder what cutscene this track was used for?

    • RJRO

      Hearing this soundtrack is bittersweet, i just canΒ΄t imagine what amazing content was cut from the game.
      This was a few weeks ago. I had to.

    http://wccftech.com/metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain-themes-were-already-in-place-in-2011-ishmaels-original-identity-revealed/

    Spoiler if haven’t finished game:

    Famitsu: β€œSo, why do you think Mr Kojima used moby dick references in MGSV? ”

    Kenji Yano:

    “To tell the truth, Mr Kojima had already told me his ideas about MGSV in
    2011. At that point, all the themes were already in his mind.

    Phantom Pain, vocal cord parasites, race and revenge, and of course, Moby Dick too.

    But at this point, Ishmael was Huey. Snake was Ahab and Diamond Dogs
    were fighting with America.Huey was sided with America, and the story
    was supposed to be told from him, from America’s view of justice.The
    reason the role of Ishmael changed from Huey to BIGBOSS will be revealed
    later.”

    Interesting change if Kojima originally planned it like that.

    • Robin030

      if thats true i somehow have the feeling this change ruined everything…

  • Jav

    I’ve been away for too long. Sorry mother base.

    • SolidVinicius

      Me too bro. XD

      • Raven_Sorrow

        Sooo… how dafuq do you have a tranq sniper rifle with machinegun clip plus 300 ammo?

        • Robin030

          couldnt resist xD

          • Raven_Sorrow

            XDD win

          • SolidVinicius

            Damn it, I’d put this meme. xD

    • Gatsu

      I love this cutscene, DD show no mercy haha!

    • BurntFM

      I thought I read somewhere that if you’re away for too long DD won’t go on missions with you for a while because he’s too upset. Maybe I’m wrong but I guess it was never implemented.

      • Jav

        I don’t know. He is always able for me.

  • Gatsu

    Been playing Life Is Strange and wow this game is amazing. I’m currently in episode 4…holy shit, the feels . Thx to some in here for suggesting it to me earlier ;).

    • Jav

      I’m going to play it

      • Gatsu

        I hope you like it ;). I didn’t expect it to make me cry, but I’m a sucker for this kind of story rich games about friendship ;D. xD

        I love games that make me cry, because not many give these feels after 20 years of gaming. Same goes with movies.

        • JJBYACH

          Life is Strange is my personal pick for GOTY 2015, it is also one of my favorite games of all time. I wrote an essay on why I think the game is a masterpiece on the Life is Strange Subreddit – I could link it to you once you finish (I go through the entire game, thinking editing it with the aim of condensing the size of it, it’s a bloody huge essay). A very interesting postmodern deconstruction of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” genre with some of the most ingenious and refreshing use mechanical storytelling since MGS2; for example: I love how the games’ rewind system is essentially just a save system whose existence is justified and internalised within the narrative, and DontNod played with that notion to perfection. And on top of that it is a damn awesome “Choose Your Own Adventure” game.

          • Gatsu

            I might have to change my GOTY too ;), even though I truly enjoyed TPP… starting the last episode soon. LiS just touches my heart closely, it makes me remember much of my childhood and friends, and I can relate to the characters a lot. Very beautiful game. And it blends the time bending and choices perfectly, some of the choices seem so difficult ;D. Loved the journey so far.
