METAL GEAR SOLID: BIG BASTARD

20130516-103055.jpg

3A is producing, or has been producing, yet another gigantic Metal Gear. This time around its Metal Gear RAY who’s shining in the spotlight. 3A’s last outing was for Metal Gear REX. REX’s ratio is estimated at about 1:48 and I’m guesstimating that RAY will be roughly the same ratio. I’m also assuming the price range will be just as similar at around $599.99. Here are a few new photos to whet your appetites. It’s the size of a gahdamn golden retriever! (more…)

Hideo Kojima Is A FOODIE

[WARNING: if you haven’t had your first meal of the day and are deathly susceptible to hunger pangs I suggest you turn away as the following content could render you Hungry-As-Hell. You’ve been warned!]

Hideo Kojima and his seminal series, Metal Gear Solid have been around for 25 years. Since 1987 Kojima has been redefining the franchise with every iteration and fans clamor for MOAR. But as much as the fans can’t get enough of the series, Kojima can’t seem to have enough to eat. So much so that he posts about his eating habits as much as he updates us on the current status of upcoming games. Here are just some of his more recent consumption endeavors:

MGSV – Are David Hayter And Hideo Kojima Just Trolling Everyone?

20130401-172751.jpg

I’m beginning to wonder if all this talk from Kojima about David Hayter not voicing Big Boss is just another elaborate setup just to hype up MGSV even more. Based on the whole Moby Dick Studios and Joakim Mogren trickery, things are starting to smell fishy.

MGSV – Keifer Sutherland IS Ishmael In The Phantom Pain! (UPDATE)

20130331-114153.jpg

BUSTED!

So far I’ve been pretty perceptive about my guesstimations about MGSV. My latest epiphany brings me back to my assumption that one character in the MGSV trailer and gameplay clips is being voiced by none other than Jack Bauer himself, Keifer Sutherland. I took to Wikipedia and decided to search for Keifer to see what projects he’s currently working on. Lo and behold my efforts proved CORRECT!

You can see Keifer’s other works on this list as well but his newest most current project is in fact MGSV. Another thing I did assume in my previous articles was that perhaps Keifer somehow is also voicing Big Boss. In the gameplay trailer Ishmael refers to Snake as Ahab, another character in Moby Dick, and Snake barely utters a few sentences but yet sounds roughly like Sutherland doing his best Big Boss impression. As I’ve said before, I will miss David Hayter performing the voice acting as he’s done so for over a decade, but I’d totally be up for Jack Bauer running around in a sneaking suit.

Note1: Keifer will apparently be working on MGSV into 2014 as indicated by my screen grab so this could shed some light on a release date.

Note 2: Assuming Keifer really is playing both Ishmael and Snake, this information won’t be reflected in the Wikipedia info I just came across until possibly a much later date to retain the secrecy of Snake’s voice actor.

AHOY!

UPDATE: I just rechecked Wikipedia to see if the info I reported would stick. And wouldn’t you know it, the information on Keifer playing Ishmael has suddenly “Vanished.” The mystery and intrigue are heightening..!

AVAST!

One MGS/David Hayter Fan Isn’t Too Pleased With Mr. Kojima’s Decision To Change Voice Actors

20130331-010507.jpg

Metal Gear Theft Auto V Solid V: The Horned Snake aka Not Hayter Phantom Menace Pain isn’t anywhere near one iota of a release date and there’re already many David Hayter fans (myself included) who’re in an uproar about Kojima’s decision to replace Hayter with a completely new VA.

YouTube user theRealAnonymousRain made a video pleading his case to Mr. Kojima about David Hayter’s absence from MGTAV MGSV. I gotta say, he does make some good points and I agree. Like the one about the Japanese market being able to retain the same Japanese VA for Snake in MGSV. It’s like Optimus Prime not being voiced by Peter Cullen! Where’s the love for the English speaking MGS fans? What’s up with that, Koj?

Hey listen, it’s not like I won’t get the game because the voice actor was replaced. I’m a big MGS/Hayter fan and have emotionally invested in the characters of its rich universe, especially Solid Snake/Big Boss. David Hayter’s voice performance was a huge factor in that. I’m still definitely getting this/these game(s) but I’ll be scrutinizing the hell outta the Rookie’s voice. In terms of MGS he’s probably no 10 year vet. AMIRITE?!

MGSV To Be Open World, Split Into Two Games Says Kojima

20130329-153010.jpg

There was a lot of confusion surrounding the announcement of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. And then after GDC, where Hideo Kojima revealed that GZ and TPP were in fact, one and the same forming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, there was even more confusion as to what it all meant.

Was MGSV Hideo Kojima’s OGRE/Devil Project All This Time? PLUS: David Hayter Not Voicing Big Boss?

Those of you who’ve watched the trailer for MGSV might or might not have noticed something extra strange about Big Boss. And by extra I mean that THING on his forehead. What the heck is going on there, buddy?
