Here’s Pablo Uchida’s Metal Gear Solid V artwork in high resolution

      Rare image with Big Boss being Big Boss in MGSV.

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        Apart from being talkative , he wasn’t really him in that scene
        But yeah your comment made me LOL big time
        Thx 🙂

        • I have to agree on that.
          That’s not the Big Boss we know

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Yeah
            Maybe he just changed after throwing away the Boss’ bandana
            After all he wanted to kill Paz and remember that speech in PW

  • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

    I can already see that badass sahelanthropus battle we never got
    Off Topic:How convenient is it that the same day It’s Mgsv’s anniversary there is a solar eclipse in my country

  • This is an amazing artwork. The reason for this is because it shows exactly what to expect from MGSV.

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      True
      Well except sahelanthropus since the battle was kinda lame
      BUT I STILL LOVEEEEE THIS GAMEEEE!!!!!

  • Jav

    I can`t find dd in the picture.

    • Ricardo Coelho

      Yeah, you’re right, there’s no DD. Maybe it was difficult to do? Or just wasn’t space for him or wasn’t that important like the other characters.

      • Jav

        It’s sad, because we can see random soldiers, tanks, jeeps and no dd.

  • Tc Oyuncu

    R.i.P Mgs i hope the death stranding will make us forget you 🙁

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      RIP English
      I hope an edit will make me forget this comment

      • Tc Oyuncu

        Screw you

        • Tc Oyuncu

          And your language

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            My language is m…
            Wait why would you want to know?
            Plz don’t start a fight here
            You know the consequences don’t you?

          • Tc Oyuncu

            Grow up and talk to me

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            I will
            After I delete this mess since I obviously can’t crack jokes now as they are forbidden
            Yeah I know I have a bad sense of humour

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          That’s so polite to say isn’t it?

          • This is why you get banned

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            ????
            Listen dude…
            I have no idea about who you are talking about
            If you think I’m arsalon joneidi , give me valid proofs about it

          • Your attitude ain’t right.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            I’m kinda douchey but I was just joking
            chill
            Did someone play a bad prank on you or what?

          • Hoxtonite

            It’s funny that ever since you got banned, for a third time, you started acting like you’re some high and mighty dude. Ironic of you to pick on someone else’s English. It’s ALSO funny that you’re pretending like you aren’t Leguywhodrownedquiet when it’s so very obvious. And he’s right, THIS is exactly why you get banned.

            You really do lack social skills.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            So just because I’m an ass I’m a guy who you banned recently?
            Dude calm downnnn
            I don’t want to fight with anyone
            I agree my humour is poor
            Should I delete my comment or what?

          • Hoxtonite

            No, it’s not because you’re an ass. It’s because you signed up 2 days after you were banned, your profile was setup the same way, and your English is identical among other things. You can try and lie about it all you want but there are already people here who know who you are so you’re not fooling anyone.

            You say you don’t want to fight with anyone, yet I’ve seen you single handedly pick fights with 4 diff people now, across 4 different days.

            (Not to mention the way you format your posts is identical, to…)

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            There will be a day I will stop being a douche
            Probably tomorrow lol
            In the meantime chill 😀

          • Hoxtonite

            Naw, you don’t get to tell people to chill, with the way you act around here.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Jeez, calm down!
            You could just block me you know
            You’re kinda overreacting

            Anyway, don’t expect me to reply to your comments after that 😉 (if you know what I mean)

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          I didn’t find a screw driver https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fc50eae6f38531aa126a8f561692f878b644a6945d30017d5f2344d23f3a3f1a.jpg

            Or swallow it dry?

  • Serpent

    I would have been happier if they used a Yoji Shinkawa art like this one, but #FucKonami right?

    • Ryan Yoder

      Such an eerie song. I remember a sense of foreboding when listening to it during that trailer and hearing Zero say “This world will become one; I have found the way. Race, tribal affiliations, national borders. Even our faces will be irrelevant. The world that The Boss envisioned will finally become a reality. And it will make mankind whole again.”

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        That’s the magic of synthesizers my friend

        • stocchinet .

          All hail to the almighty synthesizers overlords, shall Bob Moog live forever

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            All hail to the minimiog and King theremin

      • Zero was awesome in MGSV. Plotting evil schemes while sipping tea in his pyjamas.

        • “I haven’t had this much fun in a while”

        • Time Winters really made Zero believable. Granted in MGS III I’m not sure it was the plan to make him the big bad. But Winters made it work. I still think at least one cutscene of Zero visiting Big Boss in the Hospital, that tape is fucking gold.

          • Yeah, you can hear there that he is not all evil, he still cares about Big Boss.

          • How he calls him Jack & old friend. And he laughs when he brings up The Boss throwing his ass in the river.

            Really humanized him after what happened in MGS 4.

          • Yeah in MGS4 his humanity was already taken from him, he was more or less trapped by his own ‘cycles’.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Their relationship was much more better in mgsv than in mgs4
            They made him look like a conventional old fashioned villain there imo

          • In MGS4 he served a different purpose, he was more of a victim of his own obsession, a world ruled by machines.

            http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=18882

          • SNKtheStampede

            Those tapes are true masterpiece. The audio effects are so well done you don’t need cutscenes, you see it all with your ears. And Time Winters… He got me since the elegia trailer and after those tapes I think of his as the best voice in MGS saga.

          • When it was first revealed that Piddock wouldn’t be voicing Zero it was very disappointing, but Winters really nailed the role. So at least a good thing came from that. And in this case, the fact that it was a cassette tape actually worked well, it added to his mysteriousness, as someone who rules from the shadows.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Haha yeah
          I don’t prefer Winters over Piddock but he was definitely a badass

    • SNKtheStampede

      That tweet makes me smile. Hideo has some guts, tweeting such a thing it shows that he has no regrets and he is not ashame of looking back since he gave all he had. Respect for Kojima-san!

      • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

        I wish I could be like him
        After all there is a reason I consider him “God” :3

    • Mr.Pony

      It was such a goooood song choice for that trailer

    • Lewis

      Wow, dunno why, but this twit made me sad.

  • What a day that was.

    Few things compare to getting your hands on something you’ve waiting long years to have.

      Best prologue of 2015

  • Hoxtonite

    Always liked this piece. It’s modern but retro and the bright red and orange tones really pop on the muted colours.

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      It kinda fits as a VHS cover for an 80s action movie tbh

  • Aleezy

    “Sans Lingua Franca.. the world will be torn asunder and then it shall be free.”

    Much greatness, much love and great memories <3

    • ADAMJENSEN13

      I cant belive too. Its a year already. MGSV is still my favorite MGS because of its stunning gameplay!

      Very nice work youve done.
      Venom in mask looks very good!

      I wish I could draw like Pablo Uchida. Im also an artist but Im like hundred million years away with my skills comparing to Pablo great work.
      I dont have any MGS fanarts yet but if I draw any I will share with You guys.

    I bought this poster online and it’s my favorite MGSVTPP affiliated item I have. I have the Quiet with “squeezable” boobs and this poster is still my favorite. LOL.

    • That Quiet figure is actually ‘quite’ valuable right now.

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    I remember on this games’ release day we were on the way back home, the game had already been delivered to my house, we got stuck in very mild traffic and it felt like one of the longest journeys in my life.

    Good times…

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      Thinking about the nostalgia gives me goosebumps 😀

    • Ryan Yoder

      If I may share my own experience, I knew someone at a rental chain, and they had gotten this game in on the Friday before release. My wife and I went to pick it up and on the way home she had to stop at the store.

      ARRRRRRGHHHHHHH!!!!!

    • Full Options

      xDxDxD Went to the store, 3-4 days before launch… They were selling it like a lot. When I got my copy… I have to say I was actually crying in waiting to the answer… Well, not that crying, but swear my eyes were quite wet (believe it or not). Fortunately, they were selling it that much !!… My only regret is not to have visit them, dunno, 2 or even 3 days before… xDxD

    • No Place For Hayter

      I remember the games release day….. Where EB games fucked my order, so I waited 3 days then bought it digitally on PSN, 100% the game AND THEN my special edition showed up (after bothering EB none stop)……. Let’s just say I don’t buy anything from EB anymore.

      • Full Options

        We only had a couple of exchanges, did not know you then but I even asked Nyx if he had some tracks about you, worried about if you got your copy or not (he answered right away- as always in such cases- , saying you posted something the day before, but we were truly worry about you having your install)… So you finally went digital ? That’s a quite distinguished MGS fan behavior… 😀

        • No Place For Hayter

          Desperate times call for desperate measures, lol, still one of the only digital purchases I’ve done (I’m a huge physical fan myself) lol. Digital was the fastest way of playing the game, so yeah, haha.

          Looking back it is really funny how I disappeared after I got the game, did not know I left some confusion and worry, lol, now I’m all curious what my comments around release were, time to spend some time looking for my old comments, lol.

          Obligatory remark about how awesome Nyxus is (Because well he is, lol)

          • Janeo

            It’s risky having a game delivered to your house in release date, especially when it’s a game you have been waiting for a while. It’s not as big but ground zeroes was delayed a week in Australia and it may have been a small game but it was killing me.

          • Full Options

            I understand. ;D I am not a digital dude neither and specially when it comes to a new Metal Gear or GTA.. 😀

            So you did not disappeared this famous week… You were just sneaking somewhere in Afghanistan… ;D

    • Janeo

      I still remember that day in such detail like I’m sure we all do. I was originally gonna get my mum to drive me to the store quickly pick up the game and get out but she wasn’t home and after waiting an hour I decided to just walk myself, the store was a lot further away than I thought but it worked out ok. When I got to eb games there was another buying the game right behind me and we didn’t talk but I’m sure we exchanged looks. On the walk back I kept checking to make sure the disk was there lol I was so paranoid that I would get back home and the disk not be there. Then I finally got home and got to play the game I had been waiting years for. I doubt I will ever be that hyped for a game again now that I have a girl I wanna marry and I need to get a lot of things done in order to be with her but I’m glad I was able to experience the phantom pain the way I did, with the waiting and then finally getting to play.

    • Gatsu

      I slept only a few hours the night before release, couldn’t get sleep because I was hella excited. Waiting Steam open for download to start lol and chatting with friends. When it released, it felt like the longest download ever haha xD. 50+ friends plating TPP suddenly haha.

      I played like 15h before going to sleep lol, it was hard to stop :D. I shed tears when I saw the title screen and Afghanistan. Good times indeed <3. Damn, I gotta play TPP again…

    • Lewis

      My Collector’s Edition took a fucking week to arrive. They needed confirmation of my order (yeah, confirmation, I paid for it the second I pre-ordered). And their emails didn’t come, and I apparently missed their calls (my bad, I don’t like to answer unknown numbers). The pain was so bad, that I had my brother buy it digitally in PSN, completed the game, and then completed it when my CE arrived.

      Funny thing is, I thought I could be reasonable, play some TPP, go to sleep, go to work. Well, that was a mistake. I missed two days of work (lied that I was sick) and then my girlfriend made me go to a hospital and make it official (the skills that went into pretending, that I was sick, man). No other game gave me such expirience, that’s why I may be disappointed in many things about TPP, but I will still love it ’till the end.

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        I feel you. I had many issues with the game as well but the experience leading up to its release was genuinely one of the best in my life.

        MGSV’s hype train was the best hype train of all time, next to GTA.

        • Lewis

          100% agreed. I really hope Death Stranding hype train will be the same. 🙂

  • Small off topic, I really want Cliff Martinez to compose soundtrack for Death Stranding. Just listen:

    • Lex Radu

      Low Roar fits better DS!

      • Low Roar is a theme song. This is movie’s ost while something is happening and it has amazing stuff in it.

        but The Neon’s theme song is also very strong:

        • Lex Radu

          Low Roar’s “Zero” is the DS soundtrack “Write for for you” from Low Roar to Kojima, do you think that means nothing?

        • Lex Radu

          DS not PT

    • Danny Patten

      I get “This video is not available”. I tried multiple locations with a VPN…:(

    Off topic:

    I can see why the tech Naughty Dog, Oculus and the rest of the people presented at Siggraph lost to this.

    This tech is just beautiful:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OMENy0ptoyM

    I still can’t believe they managed to condense a process which takes many weeks/months into about 5 minutes.

    • Full Options

      Looks awesome indeed. The only little thing that look slightly unfortunate is at the mesh’s soft body bone setting level, towards the upper area of the mouth, giving the impression of an unwanted rigidity there. Perhaps as well also the animation is acquired at a still modest frame-rate, giving also the feeling that the face reaction stays a bit too mechanic, less smooth than it should. Works quite fine with the eyes though. Maybe they could try to interpolate a bit more the data acquired on the fly, but hey, a lot is yet done on the fly so gratz to them ! That’s still rocket video game science here !

      • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

        The team did work on a budget since they are an indie dev, maybe if they had access to more expensive, better quality motion capture tech these issues would be solved?

        • Full Options

          Correct, that, and also since they are more or less experimenting things, some artifacts could perhaps be yet mastered so they are not focusing on them right now to improve more important features. Specially, and as you said, if they are indy, they need for sure more hands everywhere.

    • FMercenary

      This made me smile in satisfaction. 🙂 Kojima should definitely look into this, if he hasn’t already, and get behind it.

  • Isaiah

    “Ground Zeroes(All DLC)”
    DLC?

    • They mean the Deja Vu and Jamais Vu missions.

      • Isaiah

        What would be awesome is if they could speed up Snake’s movements like in TPP. Even though it’s a small map.

  • Saurav Sirohi

    I have combined all the music from the game including the original ost + extended soundtrack + the lost tapes+ ground zeroes ost in one place.
