MGSV: The Phantom Pain launch trailer

MGSV: The Phantom Pain launch trailer

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released in the next few days everywhere in the world, so it's both with joy and a bit of sadness that we just uploaded this launch trailer of the game. Joy because we finally get to play it, sadness because this will probably be the last HQ 60 fps trailer of a MGS game that Kojima has been involved with.

This is bitter sweet because this Hideo Kojima's final trailer for The Phantom Pain. I darn say, his trailers for this game has not only been his very best, but they are among the very best trailers I've ever seen for any game! Let me close by saying, the scene with Big Boss walking is a SYMBOLIC scene. It's not to be taken as an literal spoiler. Folks who know the story of Big Boss knows full well what I'm hinting at....besides, Big Boss only has one eye! (another obvious hint)

PS...Kojima, thank you for enriching my world by allowing me to lose hours in the world you created with Metal Gear Solid. I love you for it!

that scene isn't a literal spoiler, true. and you're assuming you're even playing as big boss!

showing the final boss of the game however, is a spoiler. why they tagged on penis gun metal gear to the end of the trailer is beyond me.

looks comical yup lol ;p
need to play a bit of mgs collection on 360 to get a bit of a hype for V. Not really a fan of series but will play the new one... eventually.

tbh, REX has a penis gun too, but i guess the more anthropomorphic design of this new metal gear make it looks far more phallic. lol

Make sure to get all the shitty Metal Gear Solids out of the way before MGSV, then play MGSV, and finally save the best until last and end it correctly with MGS2: Sons of Liberty.

No, no, don't thank me. Just doing my job. Not all heroes wear capes.

As long as you like and are familiar with Metal Gear Solid, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

So far a lot of the concerns I have seen on here have been nitpicks, I'm not even a strong advocate for Metal Gear Solid myself, heck I think most of the series is just ok, but I still want this game.

I mean, it's Kojima's swansong, the fact that it is the last Metal Gear Solid made by the original creator is enough to merit a purchase as you'll never get a Metal Gear Solid like this ever again.

This has just reminded me to pre-order Fallout to support Bethesda. :D

heehee...their has definitely been theories about that. I'll find out when I'm able to play it. Fate has it, I have jury duty on the game's launch date. Hopefully I won't get picked. Right now I'm enjoying the hell out of Until Dawn! That game is meant to be played at night! ^_^

PS...the Penis Gear is the Metal Gear to surpass all Metal Gear. *salutes*

Thanks.

Kojima, thank you for last greatest long trailer and to GSY for sharing!
Hope to see a new IP collaboration Del Toro.

Del Toro says he's through with gaming, after having his project get canceled for the second time. what can i say, the poor man just has bad luck on his side.

This is the last time, even if Konami wants to make another MGS title. A MGS title without Hideo Kojima is not a real one.

I did not like the soundtrack of this one. mgs2 theme is still one of the best in video games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkHxpk7EEks

Too bad, because they'll never use it again due to plagiatrism claims. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k7DrIWcrdI

wow, i did not know that. I have actually a love/hate thing going on with the original MGS theme song. I often hear a similar tune of the first 30 seconds in prime time news. the first 30 seconds of MGS's theme song can very well fit ANY news casting channel.

i always liked the more electronic version in the first MGS. it's a shame it was ripped off though. for me it's a pretty iconic theme. they should have coughed up and payed royalties and paid to use their rendition of it.

    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (2 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (6 minutes ago)

    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (10 minutes ago)
