METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN_20150901234305

The only thing I can say about this game at the moment is, wow, that was the best intro/tutorial I have ever done.  The graphics are top notch, the voice acting superb thus far, controls – tight.  I do not have one single complaint yet about this game, but granted I have only played the intro/tutorial.  Below are some choice grabs. (or grabs that I was able to get or remember to get since I was too engrossed on what was going on)

Note: There may or  may not be some spoilers.  You have been warned.

Kojima’s Final Masterpiece Is Finally Upon Us

wpid-wp-1441140106420.jpg

Hideo Kojima’s swan song for the Metal Gear series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hit store shelves today and if it’s anything like last year’s teaser, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, this should be a doozy. (more…)

Seriously, Kojima?!

I waited all day in anticipation for what would be in store for Spike TV‘s PS4 Launch Night. I was hoping to see something really exciting, perhaps jaw dropping from Hideo Kojima‘s little presentation among all the others. Well, I guess I’ll still be waiting because whatever that was Wasn’t what I was expecting.

I was expecting to have my mind blown. Instead, what he treated us to was little more than a throwback to MGS1. His presentation showed an exclusive level in MGSV for PS4 called Deja Vu Mission. This is a PS4 only mission that lets us play as Classic Snake, aka the pixelated incarnation of Solid Snake from MGS1 during the PSX days.

I was amused for 5 seconds but when I realized that THIS was the ONLY THING Kojima Was serving his fans tonight it left me confused and bit annoyed. Usually when Kojima makes announcements they’re pretty worth my while. This time around it left a bad taste in my mouth. This demo was little more than another nostalgic nod to the MGS fans. The thing is, it’s already been done. IN A WHOLE GAME. Which game, you ask? Metal. Gear. Solid. 4. Guns. Of. The. Patriots. That whole game was a tribute to fans. It was drowning in fan service. I enjoyed it. But I’m over it and its been 5 whole years! I thought somehow that perhaps this Deja Vu Mission would show Classic Snake all dressed up with the FOX Engine. NOPE. Same ole blocky mofo. This feels like a missed opportunity at some Real fan service. Kojima could have given ole Solid that next gen shine by actually creating him via FOX Engine specifically for this Mission. Shit, even MGS4 had Young Solid Snake face camo that Old Snake could put on along with Classic Snake face camo.

FINALLY Some MGS News

20130901-194620.jpg

Hey kids. So after a month or so of virtually nothing we finally get some little morsels of MGS news. This post will be a roundup if you will, of the current events that have happened thus far related to anything Metal Gear. Lets get to it.

20130901-212833.jpg

It looks like NA isn’t the only region that will have gotten their hands on the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection (MGS LC for short). Europe will be the next recipient of this archived collection of past canonical* MGS titles. As with the NA release Europe will also be getting Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid (download), VR Missions (download), Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, and the Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 digital graphic novels. The art book will also accompany this collection and will be strictly for PS3 owners. I say the more the merrier. Everyone should get to enjoy MGS as a whole series. Though Xbox 360 owners will be left in the dark. At least they have the HD Collection, which also contains Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (more…)

Metal Gear Solid V – E3 Extended Trailer

This one is a bit graphic, but it show’s off the game well.  The Fox Engine looks amazing, and by far one of the best looking game’s I have laid my eyes on.

Enjoy it.

Big Boss, Shut Up And Take My Money!

I hadn’t known about Revoltech until I came across this a few weeks ago while perusing the net. Turns out Kojima is working with them to make a new toy. This one in particular is called Naked Snake 131. Judging from the Sneaking Suit on the figure it’s really Big Boss from the PSP game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (aka Naked Snake from MGS3). Here are a few photos to show more details.
