    Looks damn cool. It releases pretty late so got some time to decide if wanna buy or not :).

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    WOW! Its really great detailed! Awesome figure!

  • Danny Patten

    83€? That’s actually pretty reasonable. Who’d have thunk…

    • Yeah but remember these things are model kits. So you have to put them together yourself.

      • Gatsu

        I remember when I tried to glue some figure parts together when I was younger, well the result wasn’t very good lol… Maybe if I give it another shot I can do it better now :3. To be honest, I dunno how they’re put together these days.

  • I still remember that amazing battle from MGS4. The moment they gave me REX for total control, that was such a good moment. Metal Gear RAY Boss fight was also great. Some parts even were destructible for that level. For 2008 it was very impressive.

    • Yeah, that was awesome. The first time we were actually able to control a Metal Gear, and the most iconic one in the series too.

      • Full Options

        Probably the most legendary MGS4 moment for me, but there was much awesome sequences… The Duel Raiden – Vamp, crying Wolf, the Boxing ending with Ocelot, the radio-active tunnel… After a that long wait for the release, I remember how the first stages and those chapter cards were driving me crazy while progressing with Meryl + Rat Patrol too :DD

        This game is an incredible masterpiece.

      Yeah, awesome indeed, I will remember forever the feeling of :
      “Yeah ! I have my own REX…”
      “Wait, that’s not fair, how come Ocelot has a brand new RAY !?” 😀

  • BurntFM

    I wish I could get this but my Model Kit days are over. I’m waiting for my nephews to grow up a little bit so I can give them my Gundam Collection. It’s a sad thing really when I’m at that point in my life.

  • Plissken

    Release Liquid Ocelot and Metal Gear RAY

    • Solidus

      They already did

  • Gatsu
      • Gatsu

        Nice :D! Even the batcave hahaha, that’s true xD.

        I haven’t tweeted him yet, but that studio would be great to see.

      • I think KojiPro studio is not ready to be honest. They are still probably at the temporary office, searching for a new talent and technology. This year is the year of the preparation. Next year KojiPro will start to deliver.

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          The wait is so painful. Just imagining that moment when the first trailer for the game pops up in my sub box.

          • Gatsu

            I hella agree… and I thought TPP waiting was painful lol.

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            I remember how I kept refreshing this website as the elegia trailer was streaming at e3. That was the first trailer I ever saw that gave me literal chills. My hype for TPP was too high – I was even having reoccurring dreams of the game.

            Hehe

  • Gatsu

    Dontnod’s Vampyr trailer leaked, didn’t show super much but I think it looks awesome. I like the dark atmosphere of it :).

    Still, all these leaks before E3 is stupid. I wonder how it even happens.

    • Mr.Pony

      So far that game is hitting all the right notes for me, hope this becomes the spiritual successor of Bloodlines. Also this one showed too, if anyone is a Lovecraftian Horror fan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prnoxo-bDio

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Oh yeah…

  • Hey peeps, made this video for you guys, well…sort of?

    It’s just a MGSV Music Video

    • Gatsu

      Awesome <3 :D. Thank you!

  • BurntFM

    DAMN IT! I loved The Witcher 3. I just finished Blood and Wine and I gotta say it’s one of the best expansions in gaming history. I love all the fun they had with the quests and all the many Easter eggs. That proves to me once more that CD Projekt Red is one of the best Developers in the world. They know how to make a great game. I mean there were some Game of Thrones references, Dark Souls references. They finally and brilliantly addressed why Roach is such a crazy glitchy horse to ride. LOL I’m happy I got to play this game. Now, I finally got a PS4 and I’m ready for Uncharted 4

    http://thisgengaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Blood-and-Wine-1-728×409.jpg

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I hear it is so amazing, I’m currently playing few other games in Steam but gonna start HoS next week to get into BaW afterwards :).

      • BurntFM

        I know the struggle. lol first world problems. Too much entertainment! Now that I have a PS4 I gotta catch up on some back catalog.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      I haven’t finished it yet, but from the 30 hours I’ve played (only at the bit where you just meet Regis) it’s fantastic. I don’t think the story is as good as Heart of Stone (imo Heart of Stone has one of the best stories ever experienced). God, I love the Witcher as franchise – I love the postmodern subtext about the nature of fairy tales and folk lore, the characters, the atmosphere. It’s like an M rated version of a Shrek with the darkest of humor. If you’ve played Heart of Stone I recommend watching this analysis:

      I’m just gonna stop fanboying over the game now 😛

      • BurntFM

        Personally. I believe the story is better than Heart of Stone. Like Regis puts it in a late game quest. “The plot thickens” I was lucky to get one of the awesome endings.

      • Leguywhodrownedquiet

        Appreciating an awesome game isn’t fanboying

    • Mr.Pony

      D.L.C…De La Croix that wink at the very beginning made me laugh. Still playing it, taking my time with it but Cd Projekt has to be the new big player in the gaming industry, can’t wait to see what CyberPunk is and very exited to see the game they have for this year (rumours have it its a gwent card game)

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        Their rise to fame is just incredible. Looking at Witcher 1 and comparing it to Witcher 3 – a very strong direction and talented team is required for such a quick evolution.

      • BurntFM

        I can’t wait for CyberPunk 2077! It seems that they are finally putting more manpower into that project. There’s a little vague message from them that they are always working on something.

        • Mr.Pony

          If Cyberpunk is something like Deus Ex in a open-world of the size or bigger than the witcher then I’m sold

  • Deleted my comment because I thought something went wrong in editing.
    For some reason there’s no sound at the beginning if you wear headphones.
    Well here it is again.

    • Mr.Pony

      Pretty Good!!! Congrats on the video!

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      So sweet
      Awwwww
      Sad songs can definitely make people happy if used well 😀

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      Titan?
      Titanfall 2’s going to be great

  • vic boss

    After finishing uncharted 4 and doom (both very different but awesome games) Im finally back to my favorite videogame saga, and guess what im gonna be playing the next few days. Oh the feelings , I just get a little scared of the final fight with liquid because it’s hard as hell

    • vic boss

      The memories

    • BurntFM

      Great choice. I still get chills up my spine when the #FUCKONAMI logo shows up and you hear the “tu tu tu…tututu..” Policenauts Theme. Classis for sure.

      • Leguywhodrownedquiet

        *classic
        Sorry
        But yeah nostalgia ftw
        Sometimes there is also depressing nostalgia like endings to the old shows I loved like foster’s
        Wow I love writing off topic stuff!

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      Doom is badass af

    • CloudyWolf

      Yeah, new DOOM is badass and Uncharted 4 is awesome but sometimes it’s good to go back to our roots, you know. MGS is the reason I love video games so much.

  • https://twitter.com/tamoorh/status/741836291294302209

    Is this a joke or there is more to it? Kojima retweeted it.

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      Choo choo
      Hype train is passing by at Los Angeles
      Lmao

    • It doesn’t look like Kojima will be there unfortunately. We would have seen a ‘boarding’ picture by now on his Twitter.

      • Leguywhodrownedquiet

        Kojima isnt good at keeping secrets lol

      • Never expected him to be at E3, because we would know it with traditional “boarding” picture as you said. It’s about a teaser trailer I think.

        would be great, but I don’t expect it to be honest.

      • Full Options

        Let’s say that if we don’t get any Koji-tweet of him boarding today, he won’t be there. I would say we have maybe 10-15% chance left.
        If he flies with JAL, there are 2 flights to LAX left. Only one is direct at 01:00am (June 14, Japan time), which would land him in LA at 19:20 (would be still 13 June / evening there) 😀

    • Gatsu

      Probably a joke :), it’s not the first time he retweet this Luden’s.

  • Leguywhodrownedquiet

    Wow

    • Gatsu

      Yeah I saw Garbage’s tweet to Kojima, so nice .

  • Gatsu

    Oh my god this looks so goddamn good, I’m hella hyped !

    • Yeah, looks very nice indeed!

      • Gatsu

        I love scifi and space exploration so much ^^, still months before get to play this arghhh. I wonder if they show something more too, but it’s nice that they haven’t shown a lot of the story.

        Also frostbite engine looking good.

        • Mr.Pony

          Never managed to get into the Mass effect thing but i just might try to get back to it with this one. Also FE looks amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1tin-oga7c

          • Gatsu

            ME2 is maybe in my top 5 games ever. I hope you give them a shot :).
            Yea FE looks really good :D.

    • It looks really good. I’m not a big fan of Mass Effect games because it’s more of a shooter than Real RPG, but so far I’m very interested in it. I like exploration in these games.

      Battlefield 1 is also looking good in the trailers.

      What’s interesting is that most of the AAA games now look great on consoles and PC at E3. I hope so that Kojima’s new game will look like a next gen title =(

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Anytime I hear cords from Suicide Mission from Mass Effect 2 I get chills.

      It’s a crying shame we didn’t get to see any gameplay. But it’s probably better that way, since if they only show gameplay from the near/already completed build no one can scream about downgrades or cut features.

      • Gatsu

        Yep let’s hope EA won’t screw it up anyway. It will be exciting to see what Andromeda has. Bioware can do anything with a whole new galaxy and cast.

        Suicide Mission OST always gives me the chills too ;). I recently finished ME2 again and maan….that suicide mission is always so incredible combined with Shepard’s speeches. I actully listened it and Vigil song yesterday when I saw this xD. I hope ME:A games will have some epic villain similar to the Reapers and epic OST also.

        This is one of my favorite walkthrough videos of ME2, he’s got pretty much my kind of reaction in the ending when I first played it, if I remember correctly :). I was like ooooh my gooood .

  • MichaelPayneV

    Off-Topic, but anyone else herd about the new TV Show Kiefer is doing, where he is the president of USA?

    Well, i’m not Python Selkan, but the title font looks pretty (Very) familiar, don’t you think?

    • MichaelPayneV

      Call me Crazy, but i have a feeling this is a Solidus Snake TV Show Prequel!

      Interesting. The English trailer has this game coming to Steam too. I guess PC gaming is not too big in Nippon.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah it said Steam also, I’m so glad ^_^.

    • Gatsu

      Wait :O whaaat!? A new Berserk game omfg …

    Did anyone actually watch the EA press conference? When I went to college today all my friends were telling me about the insane BS that went on there. I thought they were joking when they said Snoop Dog, Wiz Khalifa and a bunch of random celebrities camera on to play Battlefield 1, and barely any of them knew how to play video games. And my God, they weren’t joking.

    https://youtu.be/wPSN9sTQCf4?t=6546

    The camera zooms into Snoop Dogs monitor and you see him stuck in a small trench walking into the wall. I haven’t gotten that far, but apparently at some point Snoop Dog pulls out a joint and starts smoking in mid game (my friends could just be taking the piss at this point, I hope not). From the little I’ve seen from that press conference, it embodies everything wrong with the gaming industry.

    • Gatsu

      I saw some of it and was horrible lol. I was only interested in ME:A.
      But Terry Crews was pretty badass, he was so pumped!

    • These celebrities at E3 are always so pointless. The money would’ve been better spent elsewhere (on games, for example).

  • Mr.Pony

    Anyone else curious about We Happy Few? Man this game looks like the new Bioshock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ_tBdv06pw

    • Gatsu

      Yep I’m excited for it :D, looks awesome! Reminds me of Bioshock.

    • Venom_Sina

      Exactly my thoughts when I saw the gameplay trailer.It really looks like Bioshock.I really liked it.Can’t wait to play and uncover the story.The game has a cool concept.

    • Lewis

      No wonder it looks like Bioshock, it is made by former developers of BioShock. Really happy Microsoft picked this game up, it really struggled with financing and was near cancelling. Definitely gonna play it, if it’s not exclusive to WinStore.

  • Gatsu

    Omg Kojimaaaaaaaaa with Geoff :O !

    • Wow, totally unexpected!

      • Gatsu

        I was hoping he appear there as a surprise xD.

        • Mr.Pony

          I could see him cosplaying as Ludens and then taking off the helmet xD

      • don’t trust Kojima’s twitter and his “boarding” tweets, EVER.

        Expect a teaser. He came at E3 for a REASON. It must be something, That’s for sure.
