So, a listing for MGSV: Definitive Ex (sic) was put on Amazon and taken down. Hopefully it turns out to be Kojima directed chapter 3 and we were all rused.

Who am i kidding; it's probably freaking Ground Zeroes and TPP packaged together with maybe the DLC added by default god i wish i was aborted

It seems the MGS series is still going ahead without Kojima at the helm, although the "S" now stands for "Survive."

http://gematsu.com/2016/08/metal-gear-s ... box-one-pc

Introducing the just-announced-today Metal Gear Survive, a co-op stealth game for PS4, X1, and PC.

Gematsu wrote:Metal Gear Survive picks up from the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, to an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky. Players find themselves on distorted desert landscapes full of massive half-formed structures, living biological threats, and the remains of a once strong military force now litter the landscape.


I've got an explanation for the wormholes: R&D was tinkering with an upgrade to the wormhole device and dun goof'd! :lol:

Anyhow, I'm both excited and anxious about this announcement. From the description and screenshots it looks like it could either be really great or really terrible. One thing's for sure, it's going to be very different from past MGS games. Still, I want to see where they go with this.

I was totally in, until the blue lights started in the sky and the guy started floating upwards with the shitty music blaring. This is beyond even farce.

So, my best friend bought a copy of the (Japanese) MGS3 Scenario book. While it's similar to some Evangelion books in that certain insights aren't too surprising if you're pay attention to the characters/script/blah blah blah, there's plenty of interesting things.

Various interesting points:
    ・Jack/The Boss were lovers (like Kojima also stated here) as part of their multifaceted relationship (e.g. John's words in the game are "It went deeper than that." when EVA asks "And your lover?").
    ・John's injury in the torture room was a muzzle flash blinding (there was some debate to this day, apparently).
    ・In Japanese, EVA whispers an English "Fuck you" to Volgin which was toned down to "Go the hell!" during the C3 scene.
    ・The Boss's "Even in those we love" line in her "Loyalty to the End" speech was referencing The Sorrow.

Some information nicely coincides with Kojima's MGS3 commentary, too.

If you'd like to check out the thread which is updated as it can be (Since it's such a massive book, things are added every so often!) it's here:

I recently got the Legacy Collection after hearing so much about this series, and at $30USD, it seemed like a steal. When it arrived and I first opened the case, I immediately understood the hate for modern Konami and their laziness. The collection contains two digital codes (MGS and MGS VR Missions) and two discs (MGS II, III, and Peace Walker, and MGS4). All they did was physically re-skin discs of MGS HD Collection and MGS4, with no changes to the actual disc's content, and put them in a badass case with an insert with codes for MGS and VR Missions. The first disc straight up says 'Metal Gear Solid HD Collection' on the XMB menu.

Actually playing the games, however, was a completely different experience, and shocked me as to how well they held up. As of now, I've only completed MGS and played a bit of VR missions, but I can tell why people love these games so much. I didn't even mind having to
SPOILER: Show
run around and change the shape of the key card. I had been led to believe by so many reviews and retrospectives that it was an hour long drag, but the only part that took longer than it should've,
at least in my opinion, was the last one. Having to go all the way back to that heat room sucked.
I also really liked how
SPOILER: Show
the ending, and Snake's fate, were kept ambiguous. Clearly, he doesn't die of FoxDie between MGS and Sons of Liberty, but I wouldn't be surprised if FoxDie comes back later as a plot point.
I expected to already know everything that happened because I had watched a let's play about a year before playing it, but the
SPOILER: Show
post-credits conversation caught me completely off guard. I honestly didn't expect Solid to be the superior clone, and I'm looking forward to more plot twists in the future games


All in all, I'm really glad to have picked this up, and will be starting II in a month or two.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

Wow. We have HD Collection since the other games we own either the previous releases of, or digitally, but releasing Legacy Collection like that...Er...wow.

Actually, about Solid in the end credits:

SPOILER: Show
He was the inferior one, according to Ocelot.


Also be sure to check out the 2 original MSX games under the Extras section of MGS3 (You might have to beat 3 first to access them). The original Metal Gear from 1987 isn't as plot-heavy as 1990's MG 2 (MGS1 very much follows similar beats to the MSX MG 2, though both are great games and MG 2's music is excellent), they're both important to Solid's mental state throughout the rest of the series.

Once you're done with Legacy Collection, check out MGSV (Ground Zeroes and then The Phantom Pain), too. Your mileage may vary on enjoyment story-wise, but gameplay-wise, it's super fun.

These are really fun as extra supplements to MGS1 and 2, in my opinion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PHReMw0zVE (MGS2 is in the auto-play list, though you might want to watch digital graphic novel 2 after you play MGS3 due to a fun little "extra" that graphic novel 2 throws in :wink: )

In case you're interested, here's the chronological order game breakdown. (I highly recommend to release order the first time through as you're doing, though! That's how I first played, too.)

Is this about the Metal Gear series in general or a specific game?

If you're an MGS fan or voice acting fan, this is a real treat with Robin Atkin Downes and David Hayter from MGS1's 20th Anniversary in October: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koG-Mycvvco Lots of interesting stuff about the series overall.

Today at 2 PM Pacific time, there was a livestream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BK8FktCxNp8 of the Peace Walker Drama CD sauna track :lol: BBKaz after so many years is like a dream come true

The coolest thing! I've waited years for this :heart:
