hahahahahahahaha i love kojima.

Incredible. I love the way Kojima can make things a spectacle. The man is the best kind of crazy. On a more serious note, I hope this guy recovers from his horrible burns quickly.

LOVE YOU KOJIMA. ON BOARD THE TRAIN!

So nice to know that even those with facial injuries (most likely burns) are able to excel in this industry.

Twist: The whole thing is actually an Unknown Soldier tie-in game.

I hope this Phantom Pain ruse keeps up until about 1/4th of the way through the retail game, and then you see a Metal Gear Solid V logo.

My ultimate video game story involves playing through a game and only a certain amount of the way through is the true nature of the game revealed, like imagine playing some spy game and then like, an hour before the end you get a mission briefing and on the front cover it's addressed to '007' or some shit. A bit like the KotoR twist but crazier

dude even looks like a Metal Gear villain

#12 Posted by TheHT (12189 posts) -

Alright Kojima. I get it now.

The only thing that would be crazier than this if TPP turned out to be a real thing. And all of this is real. What is real?

#19 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

SPOILERS: TPP is actually a Snatcher prequel.

The tragic origin story of Burnt Face Man leading the way for MGSV, confirmed.

I have no idea how the fuck a wrapped dude claiming to be the lead on Phantom Pain is funny or related to Kojima

PLEASE AXPLAINE

OMG. If this was my computer size, I'd make it my wallpaper.

Actually, fuck that. I'm making that my wallpaper!

#25 Edited by GERALTITUDE (4089 posts) -

See, fuck everyone who isn't on the Kojima train. He's clearly playing this game in a whole other league. Whole other sport!

#26 Edited by Soapy86 (2662 posts) -

I feel like we're already playing Metal Gear Solid V.

#28 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

Kojima is on a completely different level of of everything.

#29 Posted by connerthekewlkid (1872 posts) -

I hope he just stands in front of Geoff Keighley while reloading a giant stack of pistols.

#30 Edited by rebgav (1442 posts) -

Why did you have to say that? Now, no matter what the video is like, it just won't compare.

#31 Edited by ThePhantomStranger (433 posts) -

THIS. IS. AMAZING.

Going to go find out when this interview comes out.

I think it would be hilarious if it was always labeled as "The Phantom Pain" but in-game the late title card said. "Metal Gear Solid 5"

Would never happen though for obvious reasons.

I hope this meta-fiction behind the development of this "game" keeps developing more and more until it requires its own wikia.

Everything about this is the best thing ever.

#41 Edited by GERALTITUDE (4089 posts) -

No way...

Makes more and more sense. Foxhound california or whatever it's called will need an experienced task master to lead it.

On the podcast Brad said something to the effect of "I'm not sure what I want out of the Metal Gear series anymore but I'll know it when I see it." THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF METAL GEAR.

This is fucking crazier than I thought. I didn't know Kojima and Cliffy B were so close. I could imagine the bombcast being almost entirely filled with a conversation about this if it really turns out to be Bleszinski.

Christ, I hope not. Don't know if I could stand three hours of "Metal Gear sucks!" and "Stealth is so shitty!"

#46 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

Guys, I'm totally freaking out right now.

Kojima and team really know how to get the Hype Train chugging.
