  • That is great for Konami. Maybe they are secretly making Next Gen Metal Gear Stealth title with fantastic and deep stealth gameplay and complicated story. There is a market for it even in Japan where Mobile market is above traditional videogame market.

      I think it’s more of a certainty than a maybe, a lot of people would disagree but konami aren’t dumb, I don’t know if they wanna continue the solid series but I think it’s safer just to begin a new series with mostly different characters. Metal gear is a huge universe and there is more to it than just the snakes so I think another series has a lot of potential.

    • For some reason Konami hasn’t provided the numbers. We do know that the series as a whole sold 8 million copies since the release of MGSV (or rather since March of 2015), so a large part of that should be MGSV.

      I would prefer they just make new games, it would be cool to see a remake of some games but it’s not really needed. I would prefer to see a new metal gear series which I think they will bring out after survive

    Hey, Nyxus. I’ve noticed that the MGSV Nukes counter is still at August 10th. Any chance of updating it?

    • The numbers come from Konami, if they provide new numbers it can be updated.

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        Cheers, man. Other than a missing cutscene, what else can be unlocked once all nukes are decommissioned on a specific platform?

        • World Peace. ๐Ÿ˜› Nah, not sure, probably just the cutscene, though there are plenty of people who believe something more is hidden. This is the info on the specific requirements: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=23037

          • moto hellogoto

            xbox one version is our only Hope of ever seeing that cutscene. 7000 nukes on the pc version is just nuts though – If it were for steam only then we’d never see it.

            Would be cool to have extra-stuff. The dataminers believe it would require a patch in all cases. Our actual copies does not seem to contain more than the cut-scene, according to them. “Survive” being yet scheduled, they must be like 100% at it, so we may guess that chances are near zero, but who knows how they exactely keep supporting TPP and developing Survive at the same time ? There is also Definitive Ex that could potentially embed some cool stuff, but chances are near zero on this one too. I hope we will be positively surprised.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Definitive Ex is pretty much a bundle with all the updates according to the Canadian Amazon website.

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Do anyone else think that the existence of nukes actually stabilizes the world?

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      Dunno
      Nuclear reactors have far more better use than deterrents and vaporizing people

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Like a lot of things in regards to war and politics, it’s just more convenient.

      I think nuclear deterrence appears on the surface to be so effective because it quickly locks you and your opponent in a perpetual cycle of inaction. The problem is that being under constant threat of catastrophic destruction builds tension within the societies of those involved, and the whole cycle can easily break just as easy as it was to start up if someone decides to use there nuke. So yeah, it can stabilize the world but just as easily destroy it – a double edged sword.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Well not necessarily for the inaction part
        Remember the proxy wars from the Cold War
        The USA trained the mujahideen to directly kill the Soviets
        But currently since the end of the 21st century , no countries with nukes have actually used them or tested them
        But still , these same countries have created fake wars for just the sake of it.

        • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

          True.

    • All it takes is one mad man to eradicate mankind.

    • matttt

      In some ways it has, by forcing prevention and intervention on a global scale against potential internal threats to any nuclear-armed country. Although that of course has its downside in that even when the government of that country is corrupt or downright evil other nations must support it to secure nukes from “falling into the wrong hands.” Basically, it’s forced a status quo to be maintained in the circle of nuclear powers and their satellite allies. Of course, nations without nuclear weapons have been and are still screwed, as seen with the various wars and genocides in Africa and other places, as well as the proxy wars and insurgencies supported by the superpowers.

      However, to be able to say whether it’s better or worse than what could have been is impossible without being able to see alternate realities. There were all kinds of possibilities, such as if the USA had remained the sole nuclear power, whether it would have become increasingly isolationist or use them as either a weapon or a threat to gain territorial and economic advantages, etc. Or whether a nuclear WWIII would have devastated mankind or come to a rapid ceasefire.

  • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

    I can finally see Huey be blasted by the battle gear.
    This guy got its assets.

    • Full Options

      Cool !!
      Lol walker gear reflex mode + CQC… xD

      Interesting, regarding Battle Gear, the collision template does not match but can someone tell if the underneath vehicle behavior is indeed BG’s ? I mean, do you guys clearly recognize which vehicle behavior is this, or does this behavior completely unknown to you guys ? Is it also the former Battle Gear’s railgun scope / interface, or is it some sort of combination / existing railgun montage ?
      I am asking because I usually don’t use railguns.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Maybe the interface could be taken from mgs4’s portable rail gun interface but then I don’t think that’s possible

        • Full Options

          You probably meant MGS5’s. MGS4’s engine is drastically different and yet datamining the PS3’s installation is nearly impossible / too difficult before even planning to extract any UI element and corresponding shaders to make them FoxEngine compliant. Would be impossible and also pain in the .ss to try.

          Since I don’t use railguns I am really wondering if it is BG’s or a portable one as you said. Do we have aside BG, a vehicle mounted with a railgun ?

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Well remember the railgun weapon shown in a Twitter pic by Kojima?

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        The vehicle underneath sounds exactly the same as D-walker, so I assume it’s that and not BG. Have no idea about the railgun. Maybe it’s something to do with this?

        https://youtu.be/ZwIJrupAwvI?t=23

        Or maybe D-walker or Quiet has a railgun type weapon as a upgrade option and this guy used the assets from it? I dunno.

        • Full Options

          I tried to figure out for the railgun but never use or bought it.
          You are right, probably a D-Walker upgrade then..
          Yeah, the vehicle should be a D-Walker, not seeing it much strafe and things, but BG would have pass through this wooden tower, like in butter… And the collision template is matching, other possible vehicles are too wide. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

    The contrary would have been surprising, I was pretty confident, but with this tweet, Ken indirectly confirms that Koji-Pro will attend TGS.
    Maybe you mates saw another official statement about their presence there (I was fairly sure but did not have any official one so far).
    Wondering what will be at Sony’s booth… Can’t wait, Boss should give us fresh meat, he could not have released the first game trailer at E3 and nada at TGS !? ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Don’t expect much at TGS. Not sure that they will show something there. They are probably just talking about meeting each other. TGS is not that important anymore.

      What I’m confident is that we will see something at this year’s TGA 2016 and Playstation Experience. Expect Mikkelsen reveal and maybe small teaser trailer of an actual game.

      • Full Options

        Thx Golg.
        “Don’t expect much at TGS.” Yeah, I was not really, too soon, but at least it seems that some of them will be hanging around.

        Correct, we can safely expect that Geoff will lead a REAL “back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar” ceremony, after the miserable last year’s edition.
        At least an extended teaser with perhaps Mikkelsen but also more about the 5 dudes in action would make my year ! ;D

        • Mr.Pony

          we might see something about Survive, if that of any confort…If they say that game is coming next year I’m betting it will be September, so we should start seeing more stuff soon.

          • Full Options

            Ageed, we can fairly expect possible gameplay footage of Survive. I believe it would not hurt to show us what they got. Such gameplay footage itself should not unveil much more than slightly modified TPP controls, but could reveal other interesting elements that would give us a better picture on what’s ahead…
            We’ll see.

          • Mr.Pony

            Taking in account what Survive looks like, I’m guessing some rounds or matches would the best bet. Also I’m betting that the “crafting” stuff will be applied to individual matches to either repair fences or improve weapons.

    • Gatsu

      I don’t think we will see much so soon after E3. But never know of Kojima, he might surprise me.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        They could at least share a couple of new Yoji’s sketches, like for ComicCon… I also hope we will have few tweets / updates of what happened in Sheffield, maybe in-between.

        • This is Kojima’s first TGS since the new company was founded, so it seems very likely he will at least attend the show, maybe give some interviews again. His new company and game have to stay in the picture, after all. We knows, we might even get some new footage or info, not many people were expecting the E3 trailer either.

          • Full Options

            “This is Kojima’s first TGS since the new company…” Exact, that was exactly my initial feeling as well when I saw Ken’s tweet. As you said, Hideo is always full of pranks and shows / interviews at TGS, so that’s why I was wondering what would be exposed at Sony’s booth. I believe it would be also in Sony’s interest to show something about it in Japan, since TGS is their own Mother Base show and Hideo is probably the most beloved game developer in Japan. But they are not obliged to provide updates on DS, unless Hideo have readied some material and actually want to share it.

            But I guess Golgari did well to lower all our hypes for now so we don’t get too disappointed, if not much happen (I will lay low xD).
            I am still pretty confident he’ll do something at least small, but won’t get too disappointed if too small. ;D

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Dunno if people already spotted this, they probably did, but Holy Shit.. this looks like what went down with kojima and konami.. Imagine that Huey is Kojima, Skull Face is Konami and Sahelanthropus is MGSV and watch this video having this in mind. Video starts 1:10

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Yeah
            Actually the bitter fan base is more like Kaz

          • Lex Radu

            Kaz, you mean the only Rational Voice?

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Eh what?

          • Lex Radu

            Kaz, the only one in TPP that was rational, that considered Quiet a Danger, and she was!

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Not really tbh
            He only wanted revenge

          • Kaz became obsessed by his revenge, even after killing Skull Face he couldn’t let it go. Ocelot is probably the most rational one in MGSV.

          • Huey was the only one.
            Huey was the guy that was shown to be guilty as hell, but he might’ve been the only sane person there.

          • We passed upon the stair
            We spoke of was and when
            Although I was not there
            He said I was his friend
            Which came as some suprise
            I spoke into his eyes,
            “I thought you died alone
            A long long time ago”

            Big Boss to his inner demon – Venom Snake.

          • Lex Radu

            Skull Face is his inner Demon, Ishmael is his Angel, and Venom is his innocent part!

    • Lex Radu

      Well, what i’m about to tell you, might be…controversial to say the least, but i’m pretty sure MGSV it’s the Story of Big Boss becoming the Villain, like Hideo said, being a Monster, and he is, you can see that he tortured a lot of people since 1974, since he snapped, realizing that “The Boss put down her gun” he tortured Paz for information on Cipher, Zero, he forced Paz and Chico to have Sex, he attacked MSF, he put himself in a comma, he created “Sans Lingua Franca” HE IS A MONSTER, that’s why Miller and everyone else left him in MG1!

      And YES, i just eluded that Skull Face is Big Boss, Big Boss with Bandages on his face to cover his identity, a new Identity Big Boss created when realizing The Boss betrayed him, it was too much for him to handle, so he set on the path of Revenge, so he created Skull Face as a justification to go to infinite lengths to find Zero, including torturing people.

      Also keep in mind that all the people tortured by Skull Face had their head covered, so they never saw his face!

      Good News: In the End, The Third Child, Psycho Mantis managed to “wake up” Big Boss to reality in 1984, with the man on Fire, reminding Big Boss who he is, that he is not Skull Face, he is not a Monster, that’s when Venom Snake was brought back to the Surface, Venom being the John before killing The Boss, while working together with his Big Boss persona to Exterminate Skull Face, to Destroy the Haterted from his soul, with the Light inside of him, illuminating the Darkness “Burning” inside of him, understanding the Boss’s will.

      When Venom disarmed all the Nuclear Bombs, that’s the Moment he Truly became…Big Boss, the Big Boss Joy wanted John to be.

      However, Venom, the New better Big Boss may not have Blood on his hands, big John has, he still tortured and killed all these people, so that stays with him, FOREVER, the Pain Skull Face caused feels like is still there, but isn’t anymore, Skull Face is Dead.

      That pain is…The Phantom Pain that will live with him forever, the Phantom that will haunt him for the rest of his life till his death!

      There you go, my Analysis on “The Phantom Pain”, this is not a Conspiracy Theory or something, just my take on what i have played, on what i think Kojima ‘s message is, and 1 of them is in actually 2, and it’s not a Good or Bad Lesson, it’s a Grey Area

      1. No matter how horrible we we’re in the past, we’ll always be redeemable , we just have to find the light inside of us, and defeat the darkness, that is 1 step on becoming a better person
      2. No matter how good you became after, in the end, you still have that blood on your hands, you may have redeemed, but you should always, always suffer the consequences, pay for your crimes…hence why in the end Big Boss was killed by Solid, he deserved it!

    Or you could have it on the main page, and that page to Redirect on your other website, that way Metal Gear informer will be just Metal Gear, and Kojima will be on that other website that we will be glad to visit, me at least!

        I’d prefer sticking with the usual MGI name :), even if there won’t be MG news coming from Kojima much anymore. I dunno, it would just feel strange to have another name for the place after all these years. Also to have news about all in one place keeps the place busier + maybe easier to control for you.

        • Full Options

          Another important thing is that keeping such place name, keep ensuring that Metal Gear is Hideo’s intellectual property, even if not contractually and despite if some try to erase his name from the box.
          I am not lobbying towards any direction but still believe it is very important. The name contribute as well to that too, and if I were Kojima, I guess I would prefer that people keep associating my name with the one of my baby, as much as possible, and even if it was that violently taken away from me.

          How strange, I am thinking about DS trailer right now, even if Hideo says that it is not related to his personal feelings regarding the split.

            “Another important think is that keeping such place name, keep ensuring that Metal Gear is Hideo’s intellectual property”

            Exactly what I thought, but wasn’t sure how to write it xD :).

            xDxD Almost hesitated in leaving it as is… But I meant “thing” first, so… xDxD Yeah, I’d feel erasing MGI like erasing HK from the box.. Could be mistaken though but would really feel as strange as you said. ;D

    • Janeo

      Right now I’m not really interested in the Kojima stuff but it’s easy for me to just focus on the metal gear stuff anyway plus pretty much every Kojima fan is a metal gear fan so having both in one place actually works well. I have been on this site for years like many so it’s best just to keep everything in one site and now that a new metal gear is coming I will be checking this site often like I used to which may not be a good thing because I gotta go to China soon to be with my girlfriend and she is upset about me taking so long but it is a pretty big thing to move to another country so hopefully she can be patient for the next few months. I hadn’t thought about the game thing until survive was announced, it might be a while before I can afford to get some systems there and even when I do I don’t know if everything will be in Chinese lol, though I don’t think they dub games there so hopefully it will still be in English with Chinese subtitles. Worst case scenario I would have to give up on games for a few years until I get back here but I’m hoping I won’t have to, does anyone know if my ps4 from Australia would work in China? Sorry to go off topic in the comment but this stuff has been on my mind the past few days.

      Never seen this, but that cover looks creepy. Thanks :).

      • It’s really good. It’s not as scary, as really disturbing. The basic premise where you need to survive three nights in a church with a witch is great.

          What’s the name in English alphabets?

    • Lex Radu

      I might. But let’s not create the “everything old is good, and new is bad” attitude here

      For Example the Conjuring 2 is a damn great Movie, no cheap tricks at all, no fake jump scares!

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        James Wan is a great director but Conjuring 2 wasn’t as scary as the first one
        In fact I even laughed at it
        Same goes for the amityville hoax’s well known movie

        • Lex Radu

          But it was a better Movie, in the end that’s all that matters.

          Ex. I don’t care if Death Stranding is not as Horror as P.T. that doesn’t decide if a Horror Movie/Video game is good or not, not the scare factor, but the Crafting of it does!

        The details on the prosthetic arm are well done! masterful shading ;D

      • Lex Radu

        Looks good. The only problem i see is with the proportions, looks like you started drawing details, and evolving from that in to the bigger picture, and some things are bigger and some are smaller.

        I know because this is the way i draw!

        • Gatsu

          I drew the outlines mostly first before adding more details, but problem I had was using the usual A4 paper size while still wanting to fill most of it :D. I have bigger paper, but the surface on it isn’t good for smooth charcoal shading.

          • Lex Radu

            That’s not what i said, it seems that the face shape could have used to be more round instead, the placement of some details is the only problem i see.
            I’m trying to help you, no hard feelings, right?

          • Gatsu

            That’s what I exactly meant, I used A4 and tried to fill the paper so it’s a bit more thin looking. I could’ve done it more round but I don’t like leaving too much open space. No hard feelings at all mate ๐Ÿ™‚ and thanks.

          • Lex Radu

            Glad we are cool.

            PS: Do you think Jared Leto could make a great Solid and Liquid Snake?

    Python & Selkan did a great Trailer

    https://youtu.be/fHetmtBD-jo

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      They’re good at editing but their theories are good for entertainment
      Remember the good ol, days when we were all theorizing
      Everyone had his/her own theory

      • Lex Radu

        That half the fun when it comes to Kojima Games, so we shouldn’t hate on Python & Selkan, we should appreciate them for being MG fans, like us.

        We should show compassion, not the urge for Revenge, we are better than THAT!

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Euhm yeah
          But their theories at times are laughable
          But I’m sure that’s what they intended

          • Lex Radu

            That’s the whole point of their theories, they are having fun, we are having fun, that’s the point, theories should have no limits, that’s the beauty of theorizing, you have full freedom.

            We shouldn’t take them as offensive, they are just 2 very dedicated Kojima Fans that like to express how they feel, just all of us, except unlike us, they put tons of effort in to making them as Videos, and not Comments on Blogs!

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Euhm yeah
            But that’s the point
            It’s fun
            People give them slack for their theories
            But they aren’t even SERIOUS
            It’s all one big joke
            And a good one btw imo

          • Lex Radu

            No, people give them slack because they are way up their asses opinionated to take theories as what they are, THEORIES, they give them slack because they take them way to seriously…after all, IT’S FICTION!

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            Pythonselkan are pretty deluded as well, remember their short feud with Yong? Yong made a video where he voices his opinion (backed by hard evidence) to prove that Gray Fox isn’t Venom, and Pythonselkan made an asshole-y, passive aggressive response, repeatedly saying Yong’s “not a true analyst”.

            https://youtu.be/JV7-xImIkTQ?list=PLlhtYzUjr0NWLBs2Ahw8SRSUIEIXLfRou&t=1462

            For this reason I don’t think it’s a joke, even if it was they are still assholes for making it. If you are a dick to someone no matter if it was a joke or not, you were still a dick to them.

            Also I think theories do need to have limits, or else you end up trivializing the word. If a theory is presented as fiction for a joke or any in any context, it’s not a theory, it’s fiction. People are just calling them out on that (like Yong did) – calling their theories fiction, and in response they get all defensive and still label their fan-fic as “real” (just like they did with Yong).

            If I make a documentary, but it’s filled with complete scripted and fake nonsense for a joke, it’s not a documentary anymore. Same principle here.

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        Speaking of theories, remember the time when they suggested that we were playing as Gray Fox instead of Venom Snake (at the time, we all thought it was the OG Big Boss)?

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Hahhahah
          They still say that

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        • Lex Radu

          Well, they we’re right about 1 thing, we weren’t playing as Big Boss, mentally at least.
          Besides, it’s still possible that the Cyborg Ninja from MGS1 to be John, Big Boss/Venom, and not Frank Jagger. He acted like Big Boss would, also the way he fought Liquid, basically re-enacting the Sahelanthropus fight.

          Also, Big Boss, or Venom Lost his arm, who says when Solid “Killed Him” he wasn’t the one brought back to life as a Cyborg, the arm is already a hint at that if you think about it, plus, he has the exact matching scars and same eye missing as Venom…10 years before TPP was officially a thing.
          Just think about it, would it be that far fetched for the cyborg ninja to be Boss/Venom wanting Revenge on Solid, but in the end choosing to forgive, and die by the hands of Liquid for his sins…as Skull Face?

    Off-Topic: So Jared Leto just randomly posted this image on Facebook with the tagline “Cuba – New Years 2015/16″…basically a really, really short time after TPP’s Release!
    Take it as what you will…i take it as Leto paying tribute to George Orwell’s 1984, while striking the Venom Snake “TPP Cover” pose.
    Could mean he liked TPP, could mean he is working on a Metal Gear Project, or working with Kojima, it could mean anything…or it’s just a coincidence!

            Good director

            Exactly. Also this scene from Sucker Punch it’s one of the most underrated scenes ever, the way he Directed this is just mind blowing, i can’t wrap my head around it, i have no idea how he made it!
            https://youtu.be/m_IemarLt5c

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            He definitely knows how to use CGI
            But he should produce a movie or be its cinematographer
            Not DIRECTOR
            Especially when it’s DC
            Unless it’s Lobo?

          • Lex Radu

            I agree, he should be the Director of Photography on all DC Movies!

            Yeah

            Maybe I need glasses

          • Lex Radu

            Exactly, and beside that being CGI, the whole Armored Batsuit was Practical for most of the scenes, it took Affleck a lot of time to be put in that suit!

          • Lex Radu

            Yeah, for scenes that required a lot of movement, where he would not be in Focus.

            Zack is Smart at using CGI, just like George Miller, the CGI is not in your Face….well, except for Doomsday!

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            Nah, that’s conventional Hollywood filming. Tom Hardy (Bane form TDKR) is much smaller than Christian Bale (Batman) so they had to use the exact same technique to make him look taller. Kojima likes films, this technique has been around since the near beginning of film-making, made especially popular with the rise in popularity of the Frankenstein/Godzilla/Monster genre of the 40s – 60s.

            Also it’s literally impossible for Kojima to be involved in the making of that film.

          • Lex Radu

            I never said that he is involved, but if that is Kiefer, and he says as Deathstroke “Kept you waiting, huh” in this scene, i would flip in the theater, in a good way!

            Ah, I see. I misinterpreted what you said, sorry about that.

        Anyway, i’ll delete this, it get way too off-topic!

        As far as Deathstroke is concerned, they might be getting an acting veteran like Ron Perlman to portray him in his first live-action movie appearance.

      I played first the JPN version so this is perfect for me ๐Ÿ™‚

      I still have my save. Still pissed about the building bases and how fucking slow it is. PC version still the best since you have trainers and all.

      Still no Kojima Productions logo(not that I expected it), but at least the title includes all DLC.

            It definitely makes more sense like that !

          • Tom Brearley-Smith

            I agree. Even if Kojima is no longer involved with the ‘Metal Gear’ franchise (instead, he’s now working on ‘Death Stranding’), it would be nice to acknowledge the man who created a kick-ass series of games.

            It is even a pleasure to show him all this so deserved respect.
            Besides, it is a MGSV box not a spin-off one so definitely a Hideo Kojima Game. We are just re-establishing the truth here… nothing less, nothing more… ;D

        Chapter 3 Confirmed i guess?

        • Full Options

          Come on, would love it but lay low (at least for now)… Each time I see Chpt 3 somewhere, I start dreaming and the pachislot song comes on the dance floor, so I get back sitting at the bar.. xD Best buddy, we are suffering the same pain.

      • Lex Radu

        22 DLC’s, so 17 Unreleased DLCs, 17 missions perhaps…Chapter 3?
        Here is hope!

      Notice how with the ‘Metal Gear Solid V’ logo shown on the cover, it’s the same font used for ‘Metal Gear SurviVe’. Something fishy going on.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Hahahahahahhaha
        Nice joke

  • well people, the definitive edition is official and it won’t include new content… just the pre-order/store exclusive dlc crap and this pretty much confirms that there’s no new content for MGSv or its online component, at least they should have waited a year and bundle the zombie add-on thing but konami needs at least a MG release per year…
    also it seems they’re using the survive font alot these days… also for the 1st time ever the cover art looks better for the non japanese release

    “NAIN” STORY?! “NAIN”?! Really?! I mean,c’mon,lol

    • Eugene Voldo

      It’s a little bit disappointing, yes, but at the same time it means that story-wise we already have a complete game. There are no more chapters planned. End of the discussion. So we can now relax and continue our peaceful existence as Big Medics in a world of MGSV.

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        The ruse cruise will never die. Despite this people will still cling onto disarmament, if disarmament happens and nothing occurs people will cling onto Survive, when that leads to nothing they will cling DS’s release to determine if that has anything to do with MGS, when they see DS is completely unrelated like Kojima has been saying for ages now they’ll cling onto the next MGS game and so on… It’s an endless cycle of confirmation bias. But that reaction is expected and fine to be honest. If it makes people truly happy and heightens their enjoyment of the game, more power to them.

        How is is related to the comment?

    • MrVux007
    • Mr.Pony

      Konami being a savage xD

    • They still haven’t fixed it…maybe they did it on purpose

  • MrVux007

    Some people still raging about 3rd act …
    And all i can think off is replaying this whole masterpiece over and over again…i mean after-all,we might never have a chance to play as Big Boss anymore….or for that matter,play a proper Metal Gear game made by legend himself.

    Im planning to buy the definitive edition for a Metal Gear newcomer along with the MGS collection….Im jealous of him ya know? To relive those moments from MGS1-MGSV,like its a first time playing them,would be priceless….unfortunately memory-deletion doesn’t exist….

      I think it was the idea of revealing a supposed ‘Chapter 3’ shortly after the game came out that ticked off the community. I’m not all that fussed about it to be honest, but if it did become a reality, it would show the player what Big Boss was up to after he escaped the Cyprus hospital and during Venom Snake’s escapades (which, as we all know, was him building Outer Heaven/Zanzibar Land).

      • MrVux007

        It all comes down how you view things really.To some Venom Snake and Big Boss are not the same people(if you look at things black n white) and to some they are the same person.
        I think i know what Kojima wanted to do with MGSV and that is why appreciate the game more then other mgs games before it.

        And that is why i was unscathed by the ending of the game,if anything i quite enjoyed it(tho i wouldn’t say no to story DLC).
        My only grudge with the game is the game pacing,and that is the price to pay when you make an open world game.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Dude it’s a fact that tp venom and big boss are the same
          Not the same person
          But they share this ideology
          They are just different shades of grey
          I bet John was slaughtering innocents

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      There was a point that I did indeed care about a chapter 3, but now since I think that the likelihood of it coming out is far into the realms of impossibility my interest in it has completely fizzled out.

      Despite not being a fan of this games’ story at all I think the gameplay is masterfully designed, so well designed that after a near 300 hour playthrough on PS4, I recently re-bought the game on PC, doing a completely new run and I am enjoying the game as much as when I first played through it. If that isn’t a sign of a masterpiece I don’t know what it. I’ve seen and played the game so many times but the first few hours of play gave me the same chills I had during my first playthough. The graphic mods also helped a bit in giving the game a bit of new life and a slightly different look, but still.
