OK, so if you're a Metal Gear fan you may not know this, but 2013 was a GOLD MINE in terms of news about the Phantom Pain or Ground Zeroes, OR WATEVA THA HEH YU WANNA CAHL EET. A Full Summary of all the information can be found here:

Tell me though, as newcomers or long time fans, what're your thoughts on the upcoming MGSV, leave a comment below, let me know!...suddenly I'm reminded of JeremyJahns...weird.

I'm really pumped for this game. I was always looking forward to this game. But when I saw the E3 trailer and that Sins of The Father song kicks in, I was in hysterics.



It's going to be magnificent.

I completely agree, although in regards to music,  this track form Peace Walker kinda feels like a prelude of the events that await Big Boss in future

As a HUGE MGS fan, I'm more sceptical of his new game. As much as I love both MGS, open world games and as much faith as I have Hideo Kojima and his team, I just don't feel my usual optimism for this MGS game because of the open world element. MGS had always been a story driven action game with subtle political and social sub points along side interesting boss battles and I see the open world thing as a trendy change that I personally don't welcome. I'll still get the game and hope it proves me wrong, but I see this change as another example of a developer doing what's current rather than what's right.

 

Plus, it's in two parts, and that's GT5 Prologue style bullshit.

Well, yeah you kinda do, but the game will be great to play regardless.

 

Like I said, I'm a huge fan of the other games and MGS is a very story driven franchise. It's so complicated, I actually tried to give an overview on this very post, but realised I'd be hear for ages.

 

You don't have to be familiar with the story to enjoy the game-play. The only problem in that respect is new elements have been added and they often get left out of the tutorials for the newer games as if your supposed to know them.

 

Saying you should play the older games would be a burden on your time, but a worthwhile experience since the games are so good. MGS2 and MGS4 especially are amazing.

If you want only the backstory you need, play or watch a walkthrough of MGS3 MGS: Portable Ops, and MGS: Peace walker, they contain the story you need to know for MGSV

If there's one thing I don't like about this its that there's console specific DLC and I honestly think its bad practice as you might never have access to the full experience.  And with it being Metal Gear Solid there might also be some region exclusive DLC which Konami won't release outside Japan.

 

Apprently the ERSB has added "Sexual Violence" to the rating O_O

I haven't been following the games' progress, but what I have seen seems kinda wackadoo. I hate that they've totally bailed on David Hayter, open world seems to be a superfluous change, and it doesn't look like it has its' own identity. I just feel pessimistic in regards to the game, but I hope it's fantastic. I do love me some Kojima.

I love MGS and have played them all except any psp or vita releases, I haven't really looked into MGS5 because I haven't really thought about getting the PS4... UNTIL NOW... hah well almost.

 

This looks awesome and in MGS4 I really missed some freedom of movement as I actually played Splinter cell blacklist before I played MGS4.

This however looks great and it looks like I will get the PS4 just for this game, maybe not right now but eventually.. will wait for reviews though as PS4 is expensive :/

 

Thanks for the videos guys

When I saw that trailer I knew it was a buy. I don't pre-order much, last time I did that on a 60$ title it was Diablo 3 and boy was that a disappointment? However, knowing how the metal gear license is treated with great pride and  respect I might consider placing money down for it. Can't wait to see Ocelot role out like a cowboy in the Afghan desert with his revolver moves. 

 

Just hearing Sins of the father during its climax was a treat and a half! I never felt this pumped from a trailer since Halo 3's 'finish the fight' E3 announcement. Seeing both the rise of Outer Heaven and the Patriots is going to be one of the best experiences for both the newer and older gen platforms.

I really think and hope that this is going to be another game where you would strap a toilet under your butt and stay there without moving for days playing it...With most of the MGS it was like that for me, but they were not so long. If Hideo is making an open world right s***t is gonna happen XD
