    Peace is within all of us and Big Boss will rip it out if he wants to.

    Edit: Holy shit, Ocelot is totally tortuing Huey Emmerich, maybe because of his goddamn robot legs.

    Holy Japanese Jesus! Kojima is a fucking GOD. I'm a bit of a lapsed MGS fan (still haven't played PW or 4) but that trailer takes the cake. Probably the most in awe I've been since the MGS2 trailer. I'm seriously impressed and JESUS CHRIST CAN I GET A FUCKING RED DEAD GAME IN THAT ENGINE WHILE WE'RE AT IT?!

    I just realized that if Kojima, Trey Parker and Matt Stone did a project together, they would have the potential of making the best Post-Michael Bay action film ever made.

    Don't forget that their conference was on live national television as well. Can't imagine a mother explaining to little Timmy why these people are tearing out a bomb from a person's guts, then again can we even explain it?

    I love the way Metal Gear makes you think you're watching a cutscene, but then the camera just settles back and all of a sudden you are playing.

    Jesus CHRIST this is really intense and uncomfortable. Those extra three minutes... the tone of this game is going to be very, very dark. Makes sense, since it's the point where Naked Snake crosses that line and becomes Big Boss proper.

    Oh fuck! FUCK!!! That made me feel more disgusted than the Saw films. I'm... I'm not even sure that people who played the previous games could stomach that. The MGS series has never had grit like that, has it?

    I didn't expect it to be so good, actually got a bit of legit goosebumps for a moment there. No matter how awesome this game looks I know I probably won't enjoy playing it that much (as was true for me for all Metal Gear Solid games), but damn am I looking forward to the hopefully inevitable Chip Cheezum Let's Play of this game.

    So we're offered painstakingly rendered graphic violence, torture, child-soldiers... seems like real gritty, serious story-telling.

    Until of course Kojima graces us with up-skirt shots, genital groping and uncontrollable bouts of diarrhea. You know, Hideo Kojima's idea of what's funny.

    I wish he would pick a tone for his games. Mixing serious issues with the most juvenile anime tropes gets on my nerves in a serious way. I feel like he has a team of wildly talented people whose efforts are being wasted on his material. He might have a great eye for quality in other fields, but he's the George Lucas of game story-telling.

    @hashbrowns: Kojima claims this game is tonally different from the other games, whether that's true or not who knows. But that was part of his justification as to why he chose Kiefer Sutherland to replace David Hayter.

    I don't know how Hideo Kojima and his team do it. Each generation they put out a game that looks so beyond anything else. This trailer blows every game at E3 out of the water. Does he have a time machine? Is he a Time Lord?!

    @boozak: Man, I hope so. On a more positive note, this does look like the first Metal Gear to perhaps have proper gameplay; where moving the character around, fighting and shooting might actually be fun unto itself instead of just being a sub-par, perfunctory activity between 20 minute cinematics.

    Like the last 4 installments of the franchise I've played. Ok, maybe that wasn't as positive as I thought it would be.

    I know for a fact that left and right wing groups (primarily media) are both going to go after this one because of the torture of a woman, the child soldiers, and the whole holding intestines in thing. And that's just from this trailer. No matter how anti-war and anti-nuclear armament MGS is won't matter, they'll both go after it to gain publicity and further their bullshit causes like the hypocrites they are. They can say their piece while simultaneously trying to prevent something else from saying it's piece.

    To them I say, "Guess what assholes, war isn't supposed to be a nice thing. Ever. Women do get tortured. Children are forced to be soldiers. People do have their guts hanging outside of their bodies. Get your heads out of your asses, but before you do check your tonsils... lord only knows you can see them."

    As for the trailer the game looks amazing. As always. Every MGS game looks amazing. An absolute day one buy. Simple as that. But I see fake outrage on the horizon.

    I'm the same. Metal Gear is my favourite franchise. There's an instant disconnect in my mind, seeing but not hearing Snake.

    I'd accept it if they announce Solid/Hayter is in the game. Two different voices make sense. If they've just shit-canned him for the bigger name, i'll pass. My loss.

    If you listen to the Bombcast, I'm pretty sure they have all been negative. They did like it in the past, but recently it's not been talked about with love. It's really weird.

    I'm waiting for the fakeout reveal that hayter is still doing VA in this game, and kojima has just been playing another crazy long con. Personally, it doesn't even matter to me, I just love the idea of that kind of insanity.

    That's a damn shame. They treated Dark Souls the same way. Up until recently I had never played any of the MGS games because the gameplay didn't look very interesting (oh how wrong I was). The games have a charm to them that is totally unique.

    Why the fuck is Kojima still being allowed to make games?

    Cause he's the only person with the balls and the power to treat ridiculous craziness utterly seriously. Or should all military games have boring generic stories with forgettable characters whose only emotion is stoic blandness?

    Kiefer Sutherland's Snake voice is actually good. All you loyalists should have stopped giving a shit about canon and tradition after MGS4 shit the bed with that series, even more so with Peace Walker. Getting a new voice actor is a step forward in wiping the series clean of the shit stain that MGS4 left on the series. This may sound harsh coming from a former die hard fan of the series, but MGS4 was the Mass Effect 3 of the series for me. So they can do whatever the fuck they want with it.
