I love the controversy around this trailer, that shows Kojima hitting the pulse of the current times with some of these topics.

But that trailer is maybe a little bit too spoilerish to me, with all those cast introductions going on or seeing that snake gets an decent robo arm/leg as replacement. Especially after that rather disturbing reveal trailer that's maybe a little bit too much "reveal". I rather don't know stuff like that in advance, as to dive into the game without as little knowledge as possible.

You will have forgotten everything by the time the game comes out and you can bet it's gonna all be some big ol' chaotic mess again anyway. It's a Metal Gear game after all ;)

That said, now I desperately NEED to hear Snake at some point yell "We're running out of time!!!"

Fuck.............

I called it! Thanks to Kony 2012 and that Invisible Children bullshit it's the year of the child soldier.

Black Ops 2 teased at it but the new Beyond Souls had it and so does the new Metal Gear.

As did the old Metal Gears. It's been a theme of the series since at least MGS2, if not MG2.

Looks like a new main VA and an open world was just the kick in the dick that this series needed. Looks fucking great, it's almost as if MGS has become that game that ushers in the next gen proper. 2, 4, and now this.

I'm ready Snake, bring it on!

I actually like what I've heard so far of Kiefer Sutherland as Snake. I never liked any of David Hayter's performances. He would always leave me screaming at the TV yelling, "who talks like that?!" "Metal...Gear" I mean seriously. It got annoying for me by MGS2 I'm interested to what he brings to the role. He just has a more believable voice than Hayter does if that makes any sense

This game looks even more fucking bananas than I thought was possible after 4.

I don't think Kojima is the person to be addressing the tragedy of child soldiers in a game.

The open world stuff could be cool.

I like the idea that shit idiotic writing is "different" and therefore worth keeping around. Seriously guys. Go defend a Michael Bay or Roland Emmerich movie then, or a Dan Brown novel, because that's the actual vault Kojima is yanking this baloney from.

He's a jackass pretending at being a serious auteur, undermining his own work every step of the way with yet more idiocy. This is a guy that wants to talk about child soldiers while he sticks a sniper chick in a bikini on screen, wants to talk about Guantanamo bay and torture, and does it side by side with Policenauts references, horse stealth, cybercowboys and hiding in cardboard boxes. This is a dude that genuinely thinks he has serious things to say about war and conflict. He doesn't. He has nothing to say about those things. He just farts for hours and hours and hours in HIGH DEFINITION.

You call it "quirky" or "weird". Swery's games are quirky and weird. Kojima's games are just stupid, and I don't understand why people aren't giving him a harder time. He should be better than this now and the only reason he's not getting better is because people keep letting him get away with garbage.

That blonde kid Raiden? No.

Well... hope the video game part of this is good.

I wouldn't call anything Kojima Productions does "quirky" because that's a cop out of a description. It's more like a cognitive dissonance for the player: peppering in realistic traits with absurd juxtaposition. You either internalize what you see and move on or (in your case) spit it back out, and that's fine. People like Metal Gear games because they're one of the few AAA franchises left that actually exhibit a specific designer's personal style. So what if he wants to talk about the Cold War one minute and in the next show a dude whose battle cry is a "meow"?

I keep thinking of Red Dead Redemption with stealth.

Eli has to be Liquid. If the twins were born in 1972, and Phantom Pain takes place in 1984, then Liquid would be in his early teens.

My biggest question is, will David make an appearance?

Ugh, open world? Yawn.

This series lost me with MGS2...lots of great and clever ideas implemented in every MGS game, I love the way they break the 4th wall, for instance, but somewhere along the line I lost my patience with the gameplay. Ended up just watching LP's of MGS3 and rips of the cinematics for MGS4, couldn't be bothered to play them and I certainly can't follow the story anymore.

I really don't understand why Kojima gets death threats every time he says he wants to stop maing Metal Gear games. Let the man take his obvious flair for clever ideas and dramatic storytelling to a new series instead of continuing to bloat a story that was pretty much done with MGS3.

Of course this is just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

Odd-numbered Metal Gears, man. I'm back in.

That was pretty good.

Was the trailer on the site replaced by a Japanese trailer? Because I don't remember all of the Japanese text being on it when I first watched it here.

Wonders if this will come to Xbone eventually?

Bring back Hayter.

No. He wouldn't fit. Not with the tone of this game.

This game looks phenomenal. So excited for the game. Eat your fucking heart out Giant Bomb bandwagoners, Kojima has done it again.

Why are the crew hating on it? Haven't bothered watching any of the E3 videos or listening to the podcasts...Either way I have played them all since MGS and it not being Hayter just seems like a pointless change to me..I will play this game though because for whatever reason I love MGS

This is one Metal Gear-ass Metal Gear trailer.
