Who is going to be watching the Ground Zeroes/Fox Engine/BandagedSwedishBloke presentation later today? Is anyone excited about this or do you think its just a load of marketing hype for series past its sell by date? Where will people be watching it?

Myself, I am very interested to see what Kojima has got up his sleeve not because the games look so revolutionary, although I always look forward to a new Metal Gear, but because Kojima seems to be such a master at whipping the internet into seething frenzy of crazy conspiracy theories and wild speculation.

I look forward to the debate about whether Kojima is just a sentinet AI controlling an army of identical Kojima androids which it uses to go to conferences and tweet pictures of lunch.

I'm excited about everything to do with Phantom Zeroes and Ground Pain.

@yummylee:Any plans on where to watch it? It would be cool if they streamed it at GB so people could type mad cynical shit while it was going on.

Guess I will be watching it there then. Really wonder what he has seeing as it is an hour and a half presentation. I imagine it is going to be much more technical and developer focused than an E3 presentation. Is this going to be a big push to sell the engine? Are they the type of studio like Epic that sells their tech?

Do you think we will get an answer to the CG or not debate? I am not even sure that is one that they meant to start, I get the impression it might have just grown up organically from the community.

I have faith in ''Joakim's'' word that all of our questions will be answered come GDC. My theory as to what they'll announce is that Zeroes and Pain will be the same game. Ground Zeroes is of course the ''prologue'' to MGS5, being Phantom Pain. So chances are it may be like Snake Eater, or Sons of Liberty too actually, where there are two separate missions. Ground Zeroes will act as the intro mission ala the Tanker Mission in MGS2 and the Virtuous Mission in Snake Eater, and the Phantom Pain will act as the main course.

Knowing Kojima, though, that idea is most likely completely off-base and couldn't be more wrong.

Maybe he will show us something that isn't Metal Gear. Maybe then my dark heart would begin to brighten.

Not expecting that though...

#14 Posted by Eaxis (971 posts) -

Hell Yeah I want to see this.

#15 Edited by cmblasko (1385 posts) -

I'm at work, so I will try to watch what I can. If it's supposed to be 90 minutes long then hopefully that means Kojima will go really in-depth on the FOX engine's technical aspects.

gaf has been providing me with hours of entertainment since Bandagegate. my conviction since the trailer reveal that PP is a part of the MGS universe remains well documented on Giant Bomb. havent slept properly, and have been up all night (other side of Earth) to see this, as well. after this panel on 'photorealism,' i will have to go back to the doldrums of every day life...

Oh shit! Just in time.

what have I missed? what have I missed? what have I missed?

#25 Edited by SlashDance (1845 posts) -

Aaaaaaand it's just what everyone figured out immediately. Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes are just MGS5.

#26 Posted by Winternet (8082 posts) -

Nope, it's a 24 game.

#27 Posted by Yummylee (22664 posts) -

Well that certainly doesn't sound like David Hayter.

#28 Edited by SlashDance (1845 posts) -

@yummylee: yep... can't tell if I'm happy about it yet.

REALISTIC ASS CRACKS CONFIRMED

#30 Posted by pleasedaddyno (87 posts) -

it is about 99% as we, detective gafs, sussed out within 20 minutes of the Phantom Pain reveal. it's all on record.

(especially the bit where i pledged my allegiance to #teamreal and #nevernoeatingofcrows)

#31 Posted by theveej (864 posts) -

did gamespot crash for anyone else?

#32 Posted by Winternet (8082 posts) -

Well, Kojima left so the interest rate has dropped 99%.

#33 Edited by pleasedaddyno (87 posts) -

"did you rike it?"

#34 Edited by ESREVER (2707 posts) -

Fuck you gamespot, you just gave everyone an ultimate case of blue balls.

#35 Edited by Yummylee (22664 posts) -

Little disappointing that after all of the speculation, the most obvious possibility happens to be the truth. I guess the Ground Zeroes segments are flashbacks or something. Still, I'm pretty damn excited! Miller's back, which got me pumped a lot more than I figured it would. So many damned callbacks, though. Which I guess is old hat for MGS, but yet another Psycho Mantis derivative?

#36 Edited by pleasedaddyno (87 posts) -

(no, i rlly did not rike DAT powerpoint FONT)

yeah can't get it to work at all

#39 Posted by supamon (1334 posts) -

That masked dude was such a dick, why wouldn't he help Snake up or support him. So basically Ground Zeros = Phantom Pain?

#40 Posted by pleasedaddyno (87 posts) -

ive been watching it fine. on the twitch stream.

#41 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

I'm pretty fucking stoked for anything Metal Gear but I'm pretty bummed that David Hayter doesn't seem to be voicing Snake. If that is Snake? I don't know man.

#42 Posted by Benny (1955 posts) -

Not david hayter, oh dear! The game looks fucking crazy but there's no context for any of it, wonder if any of that info will be revealed.

#43 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1146 posts) -

This is cool, but I still kind of wish MGS4 stayed "the end." It worked so absurdly and ridiculously well as a series closer.

#44 Posted by Yummylee (22664 posts) -

I wonder if Snake'll be going through some sort of PTSD or something, hence all of the trippy craziness like the whale. As for Hayter, it could just be a temporary placeholder; though it's definitely weird why they'd ever use one considering how iconic David's voice is for Snake.

#45 Posted by leebmx (2236 posts) -

Missed the first 25mins!@*~# Did we get any important news??

Damn I missed it. They only have up to the end of the trailer recorded on twitch so far :(

Edit: Oh you can rewind on gamespot

#48 Posted by Winternet (8082 posts) -

Didn't the duders mentioned one time in a bombcast that David was tweeting something like "what if I didn't voice Snake in the next MGS"?

#49 Edited by Yummylee (22664 posts) -

@crosstheatlantic: Yeah, Richard Doyle. I think it'd be cool if they did get a new voice actor for Snake, if only because we're getting close to Big Boss and Solid Snake coexisting in MGS5. Plus I'm of the mind that Big Boss should have had a different voice actor to begin with in MGS3.
