Snake-in-a-Box! (Gameplay)

#1 Edited by Seppli (10251 posts) -

Yo. This E3 season's first MGS5 footage surfaces - hereby dubbed Snake-in-a-Box! Not to be confused with Dick-in-a-Box.

Oh the shennanigans Snake will be up to with this. If there isn't a ladies bathroom or gym shower old man perv Big Boss can snake into, and get to gorge himself on sweet jigglybits, I'd be disappointed.

Snake-peek everyone!

Y'know, if I saw a big box lying around anywhere, at someone's home or the office inside or outdoors - I'd be pretty curious about a big damn box.

Cardboard box returns! There was much rejoicing!

Actually, that looks OP, and like it ruins the whole "realistic inventory" thing that Ground Zeroes had been going for.

After playing MGS1, 2, 3 & GZ last months this is my most anticipated game of 2015!

I just noticed, during the item equip bit, there's an item named PHANTOM CIGAR.

PHANTOM

CIGAR.

Can we change the topic of this thread to how awesome this game was?

Too cute, even the little shredded pieces of paper looks like little confetti hearts.

Although surprised how poor the frame rate is even when Phantom Ground Zeroes ran so well.

@crithon: This game also seems to look better graphically than Ground Zeroes, though.

Anyway, I'm happy the cardboard box is returning. I thought I read somewhere that it wasn't.

@steadyingmeat: that it is, I saw the video before on poor wifi. Thought I saw frame rate hitch ups, ground zeroes ran so well hope it's that good again.

E3 HYPE TRAIN STOPS FOR NO MAN. Phantom Pain is probably my most anticipated game of 2015, though Witcher 3 is getting kinda close.

I wouldn't worry, it's still very early...remember Ground Zeroes was a finished product, this isn't coming until 2015. I'm so looking forward to this game, the mechanics were so improved in Ground Zeroes that when applied to a full game I can only imagine how awesome it will be.

Glad to see the box back. Jeff and Brad seemed upset there was no box in Ground Zeroes.

Wait, does this mean Murdered: Soul Suspect is somehow related!? Follow the money.

Yeah, yeah. Well, like the weird animation of the box leaving just reminds of when physics is added to an item and it flies out dramatically into the sky in other games. Just little things like that still give me an impression they need a bit more time. But yeah I'm optimistic, I put in over 35 hours into Ground Zeroes like an self respected fanboy.

Actually for some reason I was hoping we would get the Love Boxes from Peace Walker and just climb them up. But I tend to get that way when I see the new MGS games and am too used to the last ones.

Ok this comment was clearly made before The Witcher 3 trailer released x_x

I want to see someone splice in that gameplay, complete with the excited Japanese, into the newest gritty trailer. Now THAT would suit Metal Gear Solid.
