    I’ve had mine pre-ordered on Amazon for a while. 400 is more limited than I was expecting though.

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Thanks for the update, Boss. By this rate, it’s virtually impossible for all nukes to be disposed of on PC because of the abundance of cheaters (or so I’ve heard).

      • Yeah plus the nuke tab doesn’t work….

        • Full Options

          Not sure if the tab is indeed broken or if they are simply insurance protected and off-line.. 🙁

      • Sad to see all the nukes have gone up, except for the Xbox One. Maybe it’s possible on that system…

        • Full Options

          Is it me, I thought 360 was ahead not long ago ? If yes, what happened ? Maybe I am confused now..

          • Almost everything went up the last couple of months. Not sure why XB1 is the exception.

          • Full Options

            Ah ok, thanks for the precision. Would be cool to at least know across how many FOBs those nukes are dispatched (perhaps very few, could be a bit more motivating to have those stats).
            The last time I gave a shot at hunting them, the nuke owners tab was just empty. Do you think that the ones that purchased insurance have their nukes not listed when they are off-line ?
            In such case, we are maybe in front of very few but heavily trained “nuke gurus” that just steal or craft, exposed only when they are online, and connecting very sporadically :/ .. We can obviously not monitor the nuke tab 24/7 to spot them. They may be way too advantaged.. 🙁

          • Not sure exactly if nukes not appearing is a glitch or part of some mechanic like insurance. However it seems that they talk about the issue in this tweet from July (it’s in Japanese though):

            https://twitter.com/metalgear_jp/status/758251598430687232

          • Full Options

            From what bing appears to translate, it indeed sounds like a glitch. :/ Although after 3 months they should have addressed it or issue more than just light Japanese info on the matter.

            If not and just related to insurance, terminate support for it or just expose nukes out of FOBs would be a fair deal and would give another motivating dynamic for players. It has been a whole year (!?)… unless Konami discovered that FOBs insurance is more lucrative than pachislot or something.. xD

            I would be glad to help during some week-ends, but without any FOB to target, we are in a solid dead-end for now. I just keep kickin Skulls ass’s in the event for now (love that).

        • Solid Old

          The thing is, we can’t disarm the Nukes because the Nuke Tab is broken!

    • Venom_Sina

      I think it’s impossible to get that special cutscene. Bu who knows? Maybe in 2019 when a lot of people signed off from the game,we can get that…

      • Full Options

        Yeah, even considering the system running normally / not broken or glitched, the requirements are still very difficult. Besides, not sure about the exact rules, but if the insurance can protect them, then a single ass, in love with his precious nukes in his garage, can prevent the whole planet from having the cut-scene without even being connected. 🙁

      Ok let’s speculate, on the right side of the force, he could be affiliated to Norman’s character, such as his father, still jailed by those machines, his girl-friend father or other kind of mentor.

      On the Dark side, he could be some kind of professor / architect of this project to apparently enslave any life form on earth (if not some alien life form project) ?

      And finally, like Lex Radu previously posted xD (@Lex if you mind me using this awesome pic), on the Pickel side of the Force, he could be… the King of Pickels invasion… Like at the very head of the Pickels evil army… (Sorry just watched ID2 last night, got influenced… was mah to me btw…). 😀

    Am I who noticed that PW, mgsv and MG1 are the complete opposite of moby dick’s ending
    I like to think John is Ahab aka a bloodlusted terrorist who recruits children while venom aka Ishmael is the poster boy of heroism
    But yet their names are inversed
    And in this time, Ishmael is a fanboy of Ahab(John in this case)
    And Ahab survives while Ishmael dies
    What are your thoughts on this one?
    Credits: NBGO( the subreddit sucks but this idea was interesting)

    • SholidOnline

      I just think having the canon fall apart at the end sucked. Good luck meeting Big Boss in MG1. Good luck figuring out why Gray Fox joined Big Boss in MG2, seeing as how he didn’t meeting him in MG1 (or so we can only assume). Good luck figuring out why the name Outer Heaven sticks to Big Boss, even though he didn’t have the place in MG1. Good luck figuring out what happened to the whole CIA/Big Boss infiltration/re-joining between 1984 and 1995 (MG1).

      So much more to say. It’s not really against your post, but I’m just saying how much I can’t put any pieces together in MGS5.

      • LeGuy(CertifiedPoS)

        You clearly don’t know stuff about metal gear canon
        Big Boss met Gray Fox in Vietnam
        Kojima said some details of PO were canon
        Just like Gray Fox’s backstory
        But the null thing isn’t canon
        Because Big Boss was hypnotized to become the other big boss
        Big boss went to America and formed foxhound after his coma and that’s why ocelot didn’t want us to start a war with cypher
        See?That wasn’t so difficult
        Most mgsv criticisms are pretty stupid imo

        • SholidOnline

          Assumptions. When a story isn’t clear after the final chapter, something’s wrong. And Kojima didn’t say PO was canon. He named his own games when talking about Metal Gear’s story shortly before MGS5’s release.

          And I’ll stick with my statement. Your “answers” aren’t clear at all. Big Boss in the first Metal Gear is no longer Big Boss. Foxhound was supposed to be formed to try and recruit Solid Snake by Big Boss. Venom Snake doesn’t even think there’s any connection to him though. They said in MGS5 that Eli had no gene similarities. In other words, there is still no story of Venom Snake and Foxhound.

          • LeGuy(CertifiedPoS)

            These aren’t assumptions
            These are facts.
            HE IS BIG BOSS
            Proves you didn’t even play V
            The real big boss did in the US
            So…. You didn’t bother to do some research

          • SholidOnline

            Yeah, because of all things I’ve mentioned, it means I don’t have 93% of trophies or anything (damn animals). When you say “he”, who are you talking about? The guy you play as isn’t. He’s Venom Snake. He just was recognized as a second Big Boss by his soldiers. He is the one who does everything to make Outer Heaven. The tape he has at the end proves it. Point out where it says what now happens between MGS5 and MG1 within the game. Kojima even said the canon would be altered.

            I just had to respond. I played the game through several times. I’m not trying to be aggressive here, these are just the facts I have.

          • LeGuy(CertifiedPoS)

            Okay you win
            I surrender

    “And so my adventure into darkness begins…”

    Wow this game…this game made me stay 5 hours strait on my couch … and i haven’t even scratched the surface of this game.
    Truly a great RPG surprise,the gameplay elements are trully punishing and ARE NOT for the feint of heart.
    The music itself can make you both brave and a bit paranoid(especially if you play with your headphones in a dark room).
    I STRONGLY recommend this for all the folk who loved games like Diablo,Path Of Exile and Bloodborne.

    And what better way to venture into perilous darkness,is with Big Boss himself!4

      This game is to me one of the best of the year, Lovecraftian horror, awesome narration, incredible art-style and such a good gameplay (the stress management is a especially clever way to increase the tension), plus the fact of randomly generated dungeons which makes it very re-playable

      • MrVux007

          • MrVux007

            Idk about you,but the difficulty transition from apprentice to veteran dungeons is crazy.
            Its like going from “very easy” to “very hard” sort of way.
            I had like 4 of my dudes on level 3 resolve,only to realise you have to have at least lvl 3 armor,weapon and skill upgrades…which is costly

            And then you hear about “new game-plus” where you have to finish the darkest dungeon within 93 weeks without losing more then 13 heroes.
            Talk about punishingly hard games D:

          • Mr.Pony

            yeah, its a good idea to spend some weeks just doing low level dungeons so you can upgrade the town and the discounts in the blacksmith and guild, also going on a dungeon without being full upgraded in skills and armor/weapons can easily turn into a total shit show, having 4 heroes on death’s door and the stress levels nearing the heart attack point in the most simple of battles. Also something i noticed is that i think dungeons adjust according to your party classes. Having someone with healing skills in the party will make enemies hit harder to compensate the fact that you can heal the heroes, not totally sure about this though.

    Thanks for the new poll. Risking to surprise some down here, I voted “Yes”.
    I know it will be a completely empty shell in term of story and koji-stunts mechanics, however, the purely “sand-box” part of me wish to test possibly new interface features and missions.
    Even if just a small spin-off, I suppose it won’t hurt to test any new FoxEngine iteration based on Metal Gear through new missions, just like if it was the TPP mission pack / DLC we never had.
    After all, they even kept Snake’s movements / animations / poses, the gameplay demo apparently feels like we are controlling Venom again, just like if we choose a different character from the combat unit. For example, this guy on top of the hill is standing or moving 1:1 like TPP’s Venom…
    Considering that the tool-chain / editor is more ready than ever, I guess it should not be too complicated for few good level designers to end-up with something fancy to play ?

    Can’t wait also for the major new version of Metal Gear developed by KPE !!… Only 2 weeks to go before dispatching the units !!! Nah, just kidding. xD
    Although if some casino technician could enslave the unit’s hard-drive just to gather the videos, I think I would appreciate checking them out.

    • MrVux007

      Guess ill try it out if its included in Definitive edition..

    • Whew lad so many No votes.

      I’m looking forward to it, because we didn’t see everything yet, I guess.

      Doesn’t mean that I will definitely buy it tho

      • Full Options

        I will probably buy it since it is Metal Gear just to check by myself, but just hope it won’t be nuts enough to be the last one I’ll buy.

        • Theory hunters will buy it for sure

          • Full Options

            I love them, but I am not after theories for sure on this shot. Metal Gear contributed to build a tradition of Japanese gameplay, at the point it was defending it alone these late years, beside few exceptions.
            I stick to Metal Gear for gameplay. I buy retail PlayStations, 70% for Metal Gear gameplay and 30% for GTA. Not playing any other game unless friends pay visit to me to co-op in RE or perhaps BF.
            It is amazing how MG managed to pioneer its own game mechanics type since 8-bit consoles. I stick to it for stories as well, and MGS1 had enough assets to let Kojima awesomely express his crazy ideas (also and first of all gameplay-wise). Not saying Survive’s, specially without Kojima, will be successful at all… But if former Koji-Pro (unit-8 or whatever left of them) art of gameplay was less injured than it seems, it would make me happy.

    • off course they didn’t change anything, that costs money, but seriously I think those characters on the demo might have all the stats at medium or max and at the start of the game you’ll have your basic lv1 mgo character, mixed by some pseudo rpg mechanics you can get your character at peak condition.

  • LeGuy(CertifiedPoS)

    Did you guys notice the rattle snake sounds at the end?

  • Jav

    I was thinking the other day how could have been the updates for metal gear v if kojima were still working there. The possibilities are endless, a lot of new stuff. I can’t start thinking in items, weapons, missions, fixes, menus.
    But you know the reality, the game is dead and its only new update is survive.

    • Not sure about that, I don’t think Konami would allow him to do that.

      They don’t even plan on finishing EP 51…

    Ive started playing MGS3 finally!!!!!!!!!!! and I beat the pain today! and I already can say I dont know for what purpose The pain is in this game. He was in the 2 scenes in the game! WTF?! Metal Gear series have a big problem when it comes to bosses. They are shown twice in the game! Always! So no one care about them!

    But other things are FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love about MGS3 that to Ocelot fight there is only pure stealth! and that is the best!

    When I will finish the game I will write a little review.

    • BurntFM

      Way to go. Welcome to the world of coding. As far as HTML I don’t know anything. LOL but with CSS there are few things. There’s some redundant lines of code, it’s really important for you to comment. Right now it might not seem important with a few lines of code but when you start building big projects you’ll be glad you left comments all over the place. Try to keep a uniform neat format so it’s easier to read. Right now it’s a little messy. There’s seem to be a bug with the background picture. Find out if you have to add a statement with width and height. Right now it’s tiled and showing behind the Snake picture. You’re using values for the Snake image to affect the background image. Debugging is so fun…..( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) lol get used to going over your code a lot.

      I don’t know if this is how you wanted it to look like but look at the CSS code I tried to give you some pointers. It might be completely wrong from what you wanted. I don’t know http://codepen.io/anon/pen/wzprBP
      I’m not good that that. I’m mostly python and C# but HTML looks fun.

          Nice first shot moto. Standard validation is not a major on the web but could also help you to avoid classic pitfalls.
          https://validator.w3.org/
          http://www.css-validator.org/

          For the rest, stick to what BurntFM said. If you would like to get it all more seriously (better understand how the web serves pages, what’s supposed to run client or server side), I strongly recommend solutions like Apache friends XAMPP ( https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html – free and fully open source), that will change your PC into a real web server through deploying Apache on it (the “A” of XAMPP).
          For the other servers coming with XAMPP, you will see later. You could decide to install Apache directly, but XAMPP may get you more assisted with various aspects.

          Finally, the best website I recommend for helping you to solve most coding problems (form C++, C#, ASM, HTML, JS, all of them) is stackoverflow.com. They have zillions of solutions to zillions of coding problems.
          Happy coding mate !

            Yeah I heard about that site. Apparently a lot of coders just copy and paste stuff from there

            Yeah, I happened to copy-pasto a lot of fixes from there too (and some rare times also provided answers ;D).
            At the beginning, it would be better, but you are not really required to fully understand every single token you paste in your code.

            You may progressively understand what you paste in but it is also ok if not, no shame at all. For example, you can import functions from the zillion dlls inside windows like OpenGL32.dll or D3D11.dll, without having to write / compile / link them yourself. Or say you need a specific implementation for a quite complex algorithm provided by a specialist. In such cases, you are always free to do it, but not obliged to master his source step by step since it may have took years for the author to master the subject.
            Or like your javascript section. You are apparently ready to use JQuery, but certainly don’t want to write it yourself. ;D

            I almost forgot, each times you find fixes or even hacks for given problems, think about going back to those community threads to post them. Most people selfishly stop right as soon as they found their solution, but it takes just a couple of secs more to paste the answer there after having checked that your code finally runs as you want. It is thanks to those efforts that we have answers to most issues now (even very specific / hard ones).

    What the hell can I do? I have sent him a friend request just to be able to support his fob in order to avoid this invasions but it didn’t work.
