Phantom Pain dev (METAL GEAR?) to show something new on GTTV

Thursday nights are the debut for the GTTV show with Geoff Keighley. The studio head of the company developing Phantom Pain wants to show off something new.

Pictured, Joakim Mogren.

Joakim Mogren is still so hilariously ridiculous. Looking forward to finding out what this thing is anyway. Most importantly if this truly will be a completely separate game from Ground Zeroes, or if it's just more kooky marketing.

Great, hopefully the interview will shed some light on what Phantom Pain really is.

It's about Liquid. Blonde evil twin. Missing arm. It all makes sense!

Nice.

I'm so excited for this I could barely bring myself to write a post that wasn't just a Metal Gear quote.

It'll be interesting to finally get some information about this. Hopefully we'll get to know what this whole thing is all about.

It would be cool, if it turns out that Mogren is a real dude and that Kojima has nothing to do with this, but that is highly unlikely.

I am playing through the MGS series for the first time now and am loving it so I can't wait to here about this, since all signs point to it being MGS related.

What would a Phantom Pain developer have to say about GTAV?

Didn't Kojima say he was going to try to fit experiments with other genres into Metal Gear as a way to bypass his self imposed metal hell solid?

If that is what he's doing with Phantom Pain MGS V then I'm pretty glad he doesn't have an editor.

It's already been outed as a metal gear project, it's just not been said if it's a new game entirely or not.

"I have something to show you Geoff"

Kojima then removes his fake hair, but keeps the mostache. Geoff Keighly makes an appropriate :O face, doing double takes between the camera and the now revealed Kojima, as Kojima grabs onto a rope ladder and flies out of the studio on his private military helicopter.

The helicopter blades then cut "MGS5" into the clouds as he flies into the sunset.

What if the twist is that Joakim Mogren is actually real, and Kojima was the fake persona.

I feel like Kojima is trying to pull off the magic of Metal Gear Solid 2 again with all of these bizarre trailers and fake companies and stuff. My theory of all of this is that "Phantom Pain" and "Ground Zeroes" are actually just chapters within the larger game that will be Metal Gear Solid 5. You control Big Boss in one and my guess would be you controlling Major Zero in the other. The only thing is... I don't ever remember Zero losing his arm so that is where that theory falls apart.

I do think that this all ties into the same game though.

I just want Kojima to pull this charade as long as possible and be completely serious about it. Like, if he came out on stage at E3 in full disguise and started talking in a Norwegian-Japanese accent? That would be great!

The interview will be one of those when the person who gets interviewed is sitting in a dark corner with his voice distorted.

I cannot wait.

The timing seems right as Kojima has confirmed he is giving a talk at GDC on 27th March. He will show a new tech demo of the Fox engine and has "an announcement" to make.

Considering Zero looks nothing like the main guy from the trailer, I'm guessing no.

My take on The Phantom Pain could be some nightmarish section of Ground Zeroes where Big Boss is subjected to reliving his own memories or twisted versions of it by Zero.

Joakim Mogren is maybe one of the best ridiculous things the industry has given us.

#21 Posted by Poppduder (460 posts) -

Kojima already tweeted that he's coming into San Francisco to show Metal Gear at GDC. Makes sense.

#22 Posted by Demoskinos (14562 posts) -

@probablytuna: True but if you're trying to fool people you wouldn't want to make it extremely clear either way.

That Not Kojima picture cracks me up every time...

I love the entire thing. I don't think Kojima will ever be satisfied with simply announcing or showing off a game, and I am fine with that.

It would be so great if Joakim Mogren was a real developer who dispelled all rumors of this being related to MGS.

I'd love to see how the internet reacts, but since this is most definitely MGS related, it probably won't happen :(
