Geoff Keighley has been updating his twitter and more stuff has come in regarding the Moby Dick studios interview for GT regarding the phantom pain that's scheduled to be shown Thursday night, he said the guy was definitely not Kojima and seemed Swedish but didn't seem like an actual game dev. There is a chance the game is still Metal gear and Kojima might be behind it but the dude interviewed is not him.

@geoffkeighley:Update on that Phantom Pain interview: Joakim Mogren was a man I'm pretty sure I've not met before. He did show some new images on his iPad.

@geoffkeighley:@KratosKilla The guy was definitely not Kojima. He legitimately seemed Sweedish. And I'm skeptical if he is actually a game developer.

@geoffkeighley:@Andrew_Reiner Lol. It was a weird interview, I'll tell you that much!Originally Posted by 

@TheGhostSix:@geoffkeighley Would you say it's 100% NOT Metal Gear Solid or is there still chance?

@geoffkeighley:@TheGhostSix Definitely still a chance, once you see the interview a bit more will become clear.

 Geoff Keighley

So is it a cover up or is it really not Kojima involved? System warriors?

Sounds like Kojima is taking his pre-game trolling to the next level.

Good.... good.

Here's a picture of Joakim. That's definitely not Kojima. Looks 100% Swedish for sure. Can't wait for the intereview to go live.

I think it's funny that Moby Dick creates Phantom Pain. :lol:

pretty sure that's part of the joke lol.

I think its a good thing though.  When Kojima gets all whacky like this it usually means he actually cares about the project hes working on.

And rightly so because it's fvcking brilliant. Creates a mountain of hype for the game. Even if it had nothing to do with him or metal gear it's still getting the name "The phantom pain" into conversations. Whoever's behind it is a genius lol but it likely is Kojima that sly dog

Kojima's the man. Always will be.

Maybe it's one of the Mega 64 guys.

I saw Ground Zeroes if that counts. :P

I read that MGS5 is supposed to be a sequel to Ground Zeroes. I'm thinking Ground Zeroes is a fake game, too. GZ and PP are just Acts 1 and 2 of MGS5.

Rewatching the GZ trailer, There's a block of text that pulls up that says something like "Two phantoms emerge." Maybe Big Boss and hook hand aren't the same person? I'm rusty on my Metal Gear knowledge - Would it make sense if hook hand was Solidus?

EDIT: You're right, a boss that makes you think you've lost your arm and witness a massacre is totally in-line with established MGS trope.

I just wish he would move on from MGS. I feel like Peace Walker should have finished the series (although spinoffs like Rising are certainly welcome).

You play as Big Boss as far as I can tell. At least that's who you play as in GZ and I imagine PP is around the same time.So Solidus wouldn't reall fit. 

And the floating boy in the trailer is very definitely a Psycho Mantis type character who could make you see all sorts of weird sh!t and that's totally welcome. He's one of the best bosses in the franchise

He's been trying to end the series since Sons of Liberty, but they won't let him. Boo.

The glasses give it away. Definitely not Kojima, this dude looks like a badass.

Keigley's in with the joke. Him and Kojima are good friends. Do you really think he only did the interview yesterday? The show's airing today. Those tweets are just to add to the confusion.

This is more than likely true, but it's still fun

It's as if hulk hogan and thom York needed a surrogate mother named Kojima.

Thank you Kojima.
#31 Posted by Goyoshi12 (9687 posts) -

Damn,

Never saw such

Fine levels of manipulation

And deception so pure and astounding

Like this. Hats off to you Kojima.

#32 Posted by Wiimotefan (4072 posts) -

So I'm curious about the name.  Maybe this has already been figured out.

So Joakim is obviously Kojima rearranged.  And Mogren probably has to do with Project Ogre I'm sure.  But if you take Ogre out that leaves the letters M and N not accounted for.

Any thoughts on what that could mean?  Am I over thinking this one?

Mogren = Monger.

Kojima has gone insane in the best possible way.

You know what the biggest troll ever would be at this point right now?

That Kojima is paid to actually make a real legit game called The Phantom Pain go viral. That TPP is an actual game.
