Different camera angle, game seems to have lower poly body character models than if it were a full next gen title so you get that hexagonal look at times. Shame cause the faces don't seem to have any of that.
That is understandable actually, because while managing a polygon budget it is of extreme importance for proper character models design to focus around key parts that attract main visual attention (like eye expressiveness) while also having sufficient for facial motion-capture anchor points. Seeing how complex that last part is for this project, it is necessary to strike a strange balance with this priority in mind.

It may be because the game is technically made by a japanese dev who doesn't seem to have the budget of triple A devs in the west but a lot of next gen games from the West don't seem to have the hexagonal look to them on the character models. And in the small instances when they do because it's inevitable that not every single inch of the model will be absolutely perfect, (2015 games may prove me wrong after seeing UC4 Drake), it's way less noticeable, average person wouldn't notice it as much though.

info from the clip (rough translation by me so don't quote me)

-the horse is not the same one as previous ones. It's one of the horses that you can customize.
-the enemies are all gone in the clip
-in addition to trash can, Kojima ordered his staff to add toilet as another hiding spot (which is the one in the video)
-you can make noise inside the toilet to lure enemies. The sound he is making inside toilet is not final version and Kojima is telling his staff to fix it.
-There is water tank above the toilet, and you can shoot it and water will drain. Maybe you can use this to your advantage?

I needed to go to watch the clip since I can hear, but not read well (because of Kanji)

First one is just explanation about the Taipei game show. History, date, number of visitors, etc.

Second one is in Chinese. It says that there will be stage event on 31st.

By the way the host said there is no live streaming for the Taipei event. So they will record clips and show them at the next Kojima Station.

Hey Sn4ke_911

Did you observed that there are no scars on Big Boss's face now?

Seems kind of weird. He looks to be the same model from Ground Zeroes.

Yeah it's weird, no horn, prosthetic arm and ponytail either, not sure what the hell is going on.

It seems we are being played like a damn fiddle. Not sure why would he do that. Seems strange.

By the way, Team A going strong :D

Hayter audio files in GZ [they don't sound like Kifer or Quinton, I am an Hayter expert and am damn sure they are Hayter's]
Hayter teasing and being cryptic again on Twitter.
Kojima tweeting that the story will stretch 'beyond' from Father to Son [he explicitly mentions Solid Snake]

I'm guessing it's just a bonus skin for people who import GZ saves or something.

Also this voice!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVVHYGlh5DI

Hayter can still do his young voice from 1998 :D

Edit: The video described Hayter as: Best known as the English voice for Solid Snake in the Metal Gear video game series :p
Hayer's looking a lot better there, guess he's finally gotten over the loss of his Solid Snake.

Haha yep, Team A is going strong and I can already see the plates full with crows served to the non believers


Are we still doing the 'David Hayter voices Raiden even though he doesn't voice Deja Vu Snake' thing.
Hayter doesn't voice Raiden and that audio file doesn't sound anything like Quinton Flynn. That's so David Hayter.

You guys are reading too much into it, there is no "story" explanation, its just an unlockable costume of Boss as he appeared in ground zeroes. Maybe they will add the scars horn and arm eventually but the work just hasn't been done yet or its a post game-complete unlock ignoring canon. MGS fans I swear, I love you guys but your always wanting to come up with theories for the smallest of things.

If footage of snake from MGS4 with the young facecamo came out prerelease you would all be shouting "Holy shit flashback mission confirmed!!!??!?"

Boss,

Now that I think. He is not voicing Snake not even Solid Snake. I think he is voicing David before he was given the code name Solid Snake.

So when he says he is not voicing Snake, he is right. He is not lying. Cause he is voicing David, before he got his code name Solid Snake.

You mean this? The theories were hilariously absurd.

On the topic of Young Snake, this face was a lot better than the final version. More charming, less constipated grimacing.

I respect your opinion Ocelot but think about it. Its been like 2 years since he was removed and he still replies and acts cryptic to all queries regarding MGS. If he is no longer Snake, he should not be envisioning him as Solid Snake. I am not sure how much you follow him on Twitter and social spaces. In the last one year or so he has aggressively pushed him as Solid Snake during conventions.

I may be wrong and completely mad about him being in MGS5. But there is far too much noise happening.
