eh, showing the entire game before release takes away the mystery imo ;)

I really hope this entire game doesn't take place in Afghanistan >_>

K, seriously, the invasion system in Dark Souls was kinda fun. But when it spreads like a new norm like this, it's starting to get creepy.

One of the few games that will actually live up to the hype.

Okay, you can disorientate a moving vehicle with horse sh!t then attach a balloon to it and send it back home. 


Aww right, this game is stupid already. I loved Ground Zeroes and I had such high hopes for this game, but are you serious? 


Horse Sh!t?

I hope this game isn't plagued with 30 minutes cutscenes like 4 was.

This game can't come soon enough.  These new engines are gorgeous. These new consoles can go 10 years. I am happy with what they can produce now and I don't see a reason to keep stretching. These 2015 games look fantastic

I hope Kojima puts in some crazy costumes just for giggles. I already like the new cardboard box and wrist ratchet sound.

The Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain is going to be the kool. It has some kool features.

Metal Gear is Splinter Cell what Saints Row was to GTA. Splinter Cell Blacklist was by far more serious and even made Fisher more agile and Bourne-esque. Sliding on horse poop, fooling dumb guards with girly box art and saluting soldiers is just...whatever. Even the balloon grab that takes stuff back to the base was kinda tongue in cheek. I cant wait for the game, but this game used to take itself more serious with just a few quirks. Now it's a quirkfest

Re-playing Ground Zeroes just because i'm over-hyped , damnit even being a single map it is really good. Can't wait for phantom pain.

this game looks really fun and silly if you want it to be.  great stealth mechanics.  just need a release date.

Every time I see gameplay from this game, I want it less and less. It just doesn't look fun. I keep reminding myself that I LOVED MGS and MGS2 (except for the crap story).

@-s3r6i0-  Agreed I was hoping for a game with a serious tone with great stealth mechanics, but more importantly a game where you cant just off people and leave there bodies. The fact that you can just port them out of the map is a massive turn over hopefully there's a realist mode or something.

@manoogian Really? How many other popular games has he done for you to make that statement? 3....two if which you've never played. You must be a kid

@mi_hung_lo Ha, Yeah, crotch grabbing, , a guy pooping under a barrel in the middle of a warzone, playboy magazines distracting guards, faking your death with ketchup, jerking off in a locker and all that other s*** in the games prior to The Phantom Pain were way more serious, where as an optional new and improved cardboard box, optional tactical horse poop and a fulton system that while kind of outrageous is not as silly and outrageous as all the other stuff in the series.


Granted, I have only seen all of the stuff I mentioned.  Yes, it may not be fair to comment when I have only played GZ, MGS3 and MGS4, but come on dude

@mi_hung_lo I don't think so, MGS since 1 has always been like this; never serious, sometimes shocking, always fun. Sliding on horse poop is new I'll give you that but box art for distraction replaced playboy magazine on the ground. GOTP did go pretty far but they have gone a different direction with TPP. Besides we're talking about a game with Gray Fox as a cyborg ninja, giant bipedal nuclear weapons platforms, and a cardboard box as a costumes since MGS 1. The quirks during gameplay are what keep bringing me back.

@brownyyy @-s3r6i0-  If it's like Peace Walker's fulton recovery; you will want to scan high-ranking soldiers and recover them rather than recovering just any body...your roster will fill up with mediocre units that way. 


And MGS always had a ridiculous self-foiling sense of humor. Love this series, probably my Top 5 favorite franchises

@mi_hung_lo How about Metal Gear series, Zone of the Enders 1&2 and Snatcher which are all amazing games?

@cooolio I understand guys that's why I mentioned there was a few quirky things, but not to this level. I know the magazine distraction was a part of the old metal gears but not to the extent of you standing there wearing a cardboard box of a female. This is too jokey jokey. I am stoked about the game, but the tongue in cheek is not subtle anymore. It's more in your face. It went from a joke in the background to you making the joke. The quirks don't bring me back, the stealth seeing the progression of the series brings me back. I can't say the story because it's confusing. I dont think anyone can explain it someone else without looking stupid.

@manoogian @toffifee I only play single player. IF this game is quite long, then I will buy it. Is it like 10 hours, then no.

@Mantan911 Could you explain that story to someone without looking foolish? Can you tell someone the difference between Snake, Old Snake, Solidus Snake, Liquid Snake, Big Boss, Boss, and Big Mama without them losing interest? No, then he's right. If the story gets too confusing and convoluted...it's crap. It's like walking out of a movie that you can't follow

@mi_hung_lo Its all just fun and games here man, no problem.  I can understand what you are saying, but just see it as comical options.  There were a lot of people who were kind of turned off by Ground Zeroes lack of humor. I think options like this are just Kojima's way of not leaving out that humor that a lot of people have come to love.


Also, once you look pass the humor, you have to admit that the cardboard box is pretty innovative, and I cannot think of any developer who has made s*** as a weapon in a game
