Something cool about the latest patch. Read only if you have finished the game:
If you replay Cloaked In Silence 7 times you get Quiet back. The mission name will be changed to Reunion.
 
Just saw what they added with the new update, cool they've done that but idk it somewhat effects the impact of
losing her in the first place. Imagine if there was a way to not kill the Boss in MGS3.

How are those the same? One dies at the end of the story and the other doesn't.

Besides, it's just an optional gameplay thing for those that really, really want her back. Has nothing to do with the actual story. Same as the butterfly emblem trick.

I'm not bothering with it personally.

What do you mean? They both die at the end... Quiet is supposed to die when the virus is activated.

There was no indication of the strain activating, and even if it did, her body was special so she wouldn't die like a normal person.

Either way, it was confirmed by Kojima himself that she doesn't die after mission 45. The writer of MGSV's novel mentioned in an interview that he asked Kojima about this and that was his answer.

Dead or not my main point in the comparison is that the feeling of loss imo is lessened as a consequence of this. Of course it doesn't change the plot and it's cool that you can now get her back if you want to, but it just doesn't have to same ring to it as losing her forever does.
Also I'm not really that bothered by it either given I've already 100%d it lol.

Right there with you, which is why it doesn't bother me since I won't be resorting to it. Seeing the overwhelmingly positive reaction to her returning, both here and on other forums, makes me happy for those fans though and shows how great of a character she is (be it due to design/story, gameplay or all of them).

The trigger for this happening was in the game from day 1 but I do wonder if Kojima ever actually intended for it to happen or if it is just Konami trying to get into good books with fans.

But yeah, her dying from the strain wouldn't make much sense since, once infected, the strain kills the host by having larvae feast on the lungs. Quiet's insides were fried at the hospital, which includes her lungs and is why she needs to breathe through her skin. So the strain she was carrying was more a danger to those around her than to herself.

Yh I agree, seeing all those happy fans is nice. Personally I doubt they ever intended to do this, imo it's just Konami getting into the fans good books.
Yh the way the episode 45 played certainly gave more of an impression that she's alive out there somewhere. I mean if not you assume birds would pick away at her body when she does die and thus spread the strain (MGS 6 xD ?).

In the MGSV novel she dies by setting herself on fire after mission 45, it was the writer's own creation and isn't canon but I could see her doing something similar if she were going to die, where there isn't much left of the body.

Speaking of a sequel, Stephanie Joosten said in an interview that she considers Quiet's exit a memorable ending to her story and it should be left at that.

She said that she would like to come back to her role as Quiet but more if it was during her early life when she was in XOF and prior (before her body was burned). This I definitely wouldn't mind seeing.

Everyone should check out this guy's videos. He's been doing almost every mission no traces in MGSV. He's put over 400 hours into the game and it shows, he knows enemy patterns, behavior, etc. I've been using some of his tactics and am attempting some missions no traces as well.

Thanks to akiller for bringing his videos to my attention.

Do you have a source for that one?

The tournaments, starting December 1st, will be held in four different regions: North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia/Australia, and winners will be awarded cash prizes. Check out the full press release for more detailed information, or go here to register.



KONAMI Partners with ESL to Launch Official METAL GEAR ONLINE Global Championship

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. today announced today a global partnership with ESL to launch the official METAL GEAR ONLINEGlobal Championship. Launching in December of this year, the league kicks off its first global tournament season where online stealth shooter fans can compete for glory and cash prizes.

Players of METAL GEAR ONLINE – METAL GEAR SOLID V: The Phantom Pain’s competitive multiplayer mode – now have the opportunity to showcase their sneaking skills within the METAL GEAR ONLINE community. The league will hold weekly online tournaments worldwide starting Dec. 1 through Feb. 29, 2016, with competitions being held in four regions: North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia/Australia.

With the global support of ESL, competitions will be conducted throughout the month per region where winning teams earn cash prizes for demonstrating their dominance on the battlefield – $1,000 USD will be rewarded per region per month, with a total prize pool of $12,000 USD. In addition, participants in the league will be able to earn points to build their professional rank to become the next legendary soldier.

METAL GEAR ONLINE is built around a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer structure. The mode has been fully redesigned with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of the acclaimed METAL GEAR SOLID series. The online element introduces Tactical Team Operations and features a ‘class system’ that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield.

You can now register at ESL’s website.

Yh I picture her doing the same. It would definitely be cool seeing her while she was in XOF, that said without Kojima I don't think I wanna see new MGS content, MGR would be cool, or another similar sort of spin off maybe, but not sure what I'd think about a new MGS game. That all said I drove past some buildings earlier that literally looked like the perfect setting for an MGS game with solid snake, imagine a night time setting in one building sort of like the airport in the first Die Hard, but with Solid Snake :O


Started MGO recently as I finally renewed Playstation Plus, it seems sort of dead online atm, not sure if it's just me.

Went back and listened to the Huey tapes from Peace Walker and watched the ending (it's been years since I finished the game).

A lot of things make way more sense now in regards to Huey in MGSV, I think I have a pretty good idea of what his reasoning was. What BB said in the ending was also quite interesting and felt like foreshadowing.

Yeah I'm also not sure if I will be following it, will probably just ignore it like I did Silent Hill after Team Silent was disbanded.


Sweet, looking forward to this.

Interesting I'll probably replay Peace Walker soon. Need to see how some other story threads flow into MGSV as well.

That'll certainly take a lot of willpower though :)
 
Finally disarmed my first nuke. Feels good
Side note: I was invaded the second I got the nuke. So much for deterrence hehehe

It's been dead for me too.

Shame really, I for one have quite enjoyed the little time I've spent on it despite all the complaints about MGO. The main negative for me thus far is that a lot of the players don't seem that good, the majority of people are literally just running around pretty much asking to be killed lol. Though when I level up enough I assume it'll be different.

Lingua franca is bugged for me.
Cannot get them to interrogate the viscount, they just stand there looking over him sleeping like creepy stalkers or they just don't even bother bringing him to the room to be interrogated so the interrogator and his goon just stand there like muppets.

Restarted the fucking thing 6 times and it keeps happening, all the other interrogations go fine but it fucks up when they get to the fourth.

I remember this mission, I had to restart it a fair few times aswell, iirc the way it worked for me was to sit on the rock behind the house rather then against the house itself, that triggered it for me.

I haven't even tried it once yet, despite being really hyped for it. Do you know why? The ridiculous online bullshit they crammed into the single player game. Because your SP resources can be stolen when you're not around, instead of trying MGO I've been finishing off everything in the SP while I still have my stuff. If that online bullshit ends up strangling MGO in its infancy then that would seem strangely poetic to me.

I hope MGO and the ridiculous esports crap they're trying fail miserably. Fuck Konami.

Yh that's exactly what I did, I made sure I completely finished TPP before delving into MGO. There was a week I didn't go on TPP, and when I came back I'd been invaded probably around 15 times. I imagine it's even worse since then they added that patch where single player resources slowly convert to online resources, forcing you to play while connected online.
