I love the new voice actor.

I don't love the new voice actor.

I love Kiefer.

Posted by sixpin

I can't get used to Sutherland. I've heard Hayter as Snake for too long. I keep waiting to hear Snake talk and then realize that he had been for a while. I'll probably get used to it, but it is a much harder adjustment than the new VO for Sam Fischer in Splinter Cell Black List.

So wait, im still confused, is Ground Zeroes a part of MGS V, or is it a separate thing?

Posted by MooseyMcMan

So Snake/Big Boss really is the only one they replaced. I mean, they brought back Christopher Randolph as Emmerich.

I think Kiefer sounds fine as Big Boss (though a little weird, but not in a bad way), but Skull Face's English voice is not what I expected. He sounds more subdued than the guy in the Japanese trailer.

It's going to be hard to get used to Sutherland as Big Boss. I don't even think he sounds bad. Just... off-putting when you're so used to Hayter voicing that character.

You guys should probably fight.

The fact that Christopher Randolph is there, to me, cements the theory that David Hayter is going to show up in some form.

@maajin: Yeah, I still think the game is going to end with a flash-forward to young Solid Snake sneaking up on Outer Heaven for Metal Gear 1 (voiced by Hayter).

Though, I'm pretty sure the original Japanese voice actor is voicing Big Boss in MGSV, so that kinda shoots all sorts of holes in that theory.

as far as I can tell so far, Ground Zeroes is the prologue chapter in MGSV a bit like how the tanker chapter was the prologue for MGS2. I could be wrong though...

Ground Zeroes is like a prequel to The Phantom Pain I think. Phantom Pain will be a bigger game, but Ground Zeroes will set everything up. They're both parts of MGS V or something like that.

Actually, that's because the Japanese voice actor is the same across all the Snakes.

EDIT: Oh, well except Liquid...

so this is before 5 then, since he still has his arm?

Pretty bland voice-acting so far. Nothing with real character, but okay.

What concerns me visually are those insane lense-flares. They seem awesome at times, but I think they could be 10% of the current size and intensity and still look ok. Rest looks good, I like the adaptive Depth of Field. That's neat!

Really? Liquid, Solid, Solidus, and Naked? I mean, that kinda makes way more sense than having clones sound completely different from each other, but I'm still surprised.

Posted by betterinsodapop

@scott757: Yeah, I have no idea. So needlessly confusing. Very Japanese...

Posted by Vash108

I am thinking he will turn out to be some sort of clone and not Big Boss at all.

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

This game looks slick as hell. Real excited to play it eventually.

Edited by GunsAreDrawn

I think Kiefer will do a good job and I'm not really bothered about David Hayter not being in the role. But my problem is with Kojima, he basically betrayed his friend and long time colleague (probably for money) and someone who has been the main attraction for the games in the US and Europe. It makes it seem kind of off putting to buy a game from someone who treats people like that. I still think Kiefer's involvement is related to the upcoming movie and don't see David Hayter coming into the picture.

On the subject of voice acting...I don't think Skullface has a good voice, I imagined him to sound different. Very underwhelming.

EDIT: now that I've watched this it seems like Kiefer is playing Snake completely differently. He's totally serious whereas David hams it up in a way that goes with the silly dialogue. Some of the stuff in this video just sounded forced.

Posted by Driadon

I dunno. Kiefer didn't put enough emphasis on that "huh?"

Posted by jaks

I'm not happy with the new voice acting either. I won't say that I'm not going to play it because of it but Hayter was so good at Snake and Sutherland's too recognizable as Jack Bauer and trying to sell me Ford trucks on TV.

Edited by Lab392

Skull Face sounds like a fan dub here.

Posted by Karkarov

Keifer sounded fine. Big Boss is old as heck in this video, and he even through in some subtlety with the "kept you waiting did I" line. Hayter is the voice of Solid Snake, but this isn't Solid Snake, it is a very old Big Boss. Hayter while great overplayed many lines and hammed it up a lot, I am looking forward to a more experienced and cagey portrayal of Big Boss.

Edited by Fat_Tomato

I've heard Hayter too long as Snake and Sutherland too long as Jack Bauer. As of now I can't separate the two.


I know it seems kinda ridiculous to say this is a deal-breaker, but it was definitely taking me out of it . . . Skullface didn't sound too great either. Maybe there could just be a Japanese language option!

Posted by hurtfulmadmax

I started to shake with angst the moment Kiefer's name appeared onscreen. This is such an unimportant issue in the grand scheme of video-games, let alone life; yet my heart feels broken. I won't be able to play this in English.

Posted by AuthenticM

Kiefer sounds as if he doesn't give a shit. I'm disappointed.

Posted by AngeTheDude

You know what? I think even now we're still being fucked with by Kojima and I don't trust any info about this game until I've played it myself. I'm expecting David Hayter to show up and the whole game itself to be a colossal mindfuck.

Edited by White

Deep down, I still believe this is gag by Kojima taken all the way to the extreme. Either that or Hayter is gonna voice a young David.

John: "Mommy, why does my voice sound all husky? Why is my voice changing?"

John's "Mother": "It's cause you're going through puberty, honey. You think voice never changes? Grow up like your British brother."

Posted by golddeathmonkey

EVERY DAMN TIME HIDEO! Sell me with a slick intro make me want to see what happens then force me to wait for another like 4 years before your stupid game ever comes out!

Edited by TheHT

Yup, the disconnect of hearing Sutherland's voice and seeing Snake will take some getting used to. Oddly enough I'm more comfortable with the Japanese voice actor than either Sutherland or Hayter right now.

It really needs to come from the gut. Although if he doesn't say "Metal Gear?!" with complete bewilderment I just might cry.

Edited by Rodin

i wouldn't say keifer is bad in this, it's just that hes playing himself.

also skull face sounds bad.

Posted by blakviet

I grew up listening to david hayter as snake since the first metal gear solid on PSX, it so weird not hearing the snake that I have known since 1998. I didn't think it would matter but it does!!!!!!

You mean when you wake up in the hospital with one arm you're actually a clone, going crazy the whole game over having memories that never really happened to him?

...well shit, that's probably it.

Posted by MeatSim

Sutherland seems fine as the new voice of Snake.

He needs to pronounce "damn" as "-AYM!"

Posted by Do_The_Manta_Ray

I am taken aback at how ludicrously gorgeous this game is each time I see it. Jesuuus christ, it's pretty.

Edited by Crickut

I'll laugh my Twin Snakes off (so what? I was born different!) if David Hayter pops up in this game.

Also, I guess that little kid in the opening scene is Jack/Raiden?

Posted by Stonyman65

You know it's weird. The whole inspiration for Solid Snake/Big Boss was Snake Plissken from the Escape movies. David Hayter did a good job as a pseudo-Snake Plissken voice but I have to say that Keifer (from what I've heard so far) actually does that pseudo-Snake Plissken voice better.

Kiefer will never be Solid Snake or Big Boss in our minds, but I think he gets closer to the source inspirations.

Kinda like how Timothy Dalton as James Bond was.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

@crickut: No, the kid is Chico, from Peace Walker. They mention him in the dialog in the trailer.

I don't think that Jack would be alive in 1974/75 when Ground Zeroes is set.

Posted by FriskyBat

Eh? Lord Voldemort?!

Posted by John1912

Dont get why they would get Kiefer, hes gotta cost more I would think. So much love for Hayter changing it seems fucking stupid.

Edited by Dan_CiTi

Yeah the new VO is fine, it is just awkward and unnecessary.

I've always thought that but never knew. Not sure of the voice acting for Reptilian Man.

The only thing that bothers me is the inferred highly convoluted story, though of course I know it going in. It's just when they start talking about it making perfect sense, it reminds me of that guy with weird hair- internet meme who always going 'I'm not saying a bunch of bullshit, but It's a bunch of bullshit.'.

Edited by RuneseekerMireille

One of the reasons I really hated Peace Walker, even though I enjoyed the mechanics, was that it vilified and destroyed my favorite character in it, Paz. Hearing that she may still be alive, I'm all in for this game, Southerland or no.

...Though I will admit hearing his voice coming out of Snake's mouth is a little off-putting.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Ground Zeroes is supposed to serve as a prologue to The Phantom Pain. Still no clue on whether or not they're both on the same disc or if they'll be sold separately (possibly a Dead Rising 2: Case Zero / Dead Rising 2 sort of thing?).
