I know one thing. I always loved the series since I met it. I know I only did it with 3, but still since then I have completed 3 multiple times along with 2 and 4 was really a game I loved, so I know I can count on this to a quality game.
Yes, except that it's MGS 2: Sons of Liberty for me.

Nobody is probably going to believe me (and I don't blame them, because I wouldn't believe it either) but I've played the Tanker section likely about over a hundred times, and I've played through the full game probably around half of that. I remember the Summer after its release was the biggest proponent of that. I would just do speed-run after speed-run, I never got bored. I kept seeing how fast I could get through the Tanker especially; I really wish I could remember my times, but I remember telling my friend and he didn't believe me until I actually showed him. I fucking love that game. If I had to say, I've probably played it more than a dozen times with all the story stuff as well. That game was pretty much all I played in 2002. I was completely hooked on it, and I loved every minute of it. It was a game I could always come back to as the years went on, and I played that game almost every way possible.

I remember being so jealous of Substance back in the day. I think it was the main reason that got me to buy an Xbox. I loved that too. Ironically I actually liked my Xbox way more than my PS2, and I found it almost solely due to MGS.

In fact, MGS is the reason I'm here posting on a gaming forum. I had gamed through the NES on, but I never had a major passion and love for the whole industry like I did after playing MGS2. I was completely entranced by the medium, and have been following it very closely ever since. MGS2 basically was what games could be to me.

There's just something about this series...I'm not trying to rag on other people's tastes, but I just don't usually like modern Japanese games in comparison to Western games. I've tried getting into JRPG's and shoot-em-ups, but they're just not for me. There's obviously a lot of exceptions, but over the years I've come to enjoy Wester games more. With that said, MGS just transcends all of that for me. It never feels like a Japanese or a Western game. It feels like its own entity. It's the only series I will buy hardware for, it's the only series I'll do a lot of research for (MGS 2 was my first game in the series, and I hate when people say there are plot holes, because I was a newbie and took the time to do the research and I found that pretty much most of it can be explained), it's the only series that I really know I must have on day one no matter what happens. I just love it.

Seeing this trailer has made me so happy, because it has rekindled that spark I haven't had since MGS4. While I really love MGS4, like any game it had its flaws. This seems to be the best of both worlds, and everything (besides some voice acting, but that's taste and tradition) seems like an improvement by leaps and bounds. Everyone is excited again, and Kojima seems to have a game of the show on his hands.

In short, it's good to be a Metal Gear fan, and I'm glad we're all enjoying how great MGSV is shaping up to be.

Is Kojima really saying that the trailer is more representative of what the game looks like on PS360, closer to those systems than next gen? That's crazy. If it looks that good on current systems I can't imagine what it will look like on PS4/Xbox One. I thought all this time we were seeing visuals that will have to be toned down for current gen consoles.

Well people I may be on to something the following is what is on the poster Kojima said that there is hidden info on. If you take the first letter of each line, then the second letter of each line and the third letter of each line and put the together you get the following anagrams for some interesting stuff.

1. AACTEMRRS = *ARMS TEC* additional (R) and A could stand for Research
2. CCEVAUEE = *Evacuee* with a (C) being left off.
3. CQSECNRC = *CQC Recs/B]* with a N being left off.
^^^-Not to much validity but I guess it was a shot.

The following numbers appear 3 times in the poster going down in a straight line. The numbers that appear twice are 03 and 12.

I think it is a release date, 03 12 could mean 03/12(Day/Month)=12/03/2013 which is a Tuesday which is when games are released or 03/12/(Month/Day)

Do you really think it will be ready that soon!?!?
I guess if it is December it will be after the next gen console launch.

I'm really starting to think we'll see it this year. It looks so fucking polished and complete already, at least the current-gen version. Then again it's a little strange we haven't seen it actually run on a PS3 or 360 yet, so that kind of goes against the idea of it coming this year.

My guess is somehow we see it in December, and then the next-gen/PC versions in 2014. If that does happen, then I'm almost definitely going to wait on the new consoles until 2014.

Now that I think about it I know that Kojima is at least aiming for a Q4 release date, just look at this tweet:

Debut @VGA world premier teaser followed by tech presentation @GDC, trailer and actual game presentation @E3, online mode beta test in summer, exhibiting @Gamescom, game play available in multiple occasion in fall, and release yr end. This is the trend of game promotion in western market.
http://www.twitlonger.com/show/en4a62

Besides the PAX Ground Zeroes demo, this is the exact schedule that they've had so far.

edit: keep in mind, the last mainline MGS was in 2008. Even if this comes out in 2013 it'll be the longest gap between main entries in the series' history, so Q4 2013 doesn't sound at all unreasonable to me.

Anyone afraid the whole game is brown? Afghanistan and Africa. They just showed brown environments with lots of emptiness. Empty as in brown rocky deserts and with brown cliffs and brown buildings. It was a struggle to get through the first part of MGS4 because deserts suck as gaming locations.

I pray to the nanogods that Kojima adds colorful locations. Empty deserts save on power I guess. I also hope they round out the horses' tails where they connect to the butts. Couldn't stop noticing the triangles. Horsebutt was the first thing I noticed in that scene.

Please Kojima. Don't brown the whole game. And please still have self-aware humor. It's atmosphere is that of a franchise reboot instead of a sequel. Color it up my man.

I think the game will be colorful enough. Early FOX engine pics showed the kid and dog in a lush jungle location. Africa is a very diverse continent in terms of environments, with rainforests, deserts, grasslands, mountains, coastal beach areas, etc. I'd be shocked if, in an open world game like this, Snake didn't travel many miles over the course of his mission through many different locales, especially with vehicles being added to the mix.

There better be a huge base at some point, too because I love my claustrophobic indoor sneaking.

Do games ever release after November? at least in the US.
You miss out on like 90% of holiday shopping.

I do actually believe it will release soon though, I think it would have been too soon to hype Kiefer if the game is next Fall or 2015.

So, Kaz... thought he was a pretty ok guy? What's up with him torturing Quiet and Huey? Boss's orders?
Kaz is PISSED, judging by the trailer, I've never seen a character more pissed than Kaz in the Metal Gear series.

I can't quite tell the mood though, if he is being sarcastic with fighting back Cipher, but I guess it makes sense.

Well he is an okay guy, in Peace Walker that is. But he is a visionary, as they said in the trailer, he wanted to expand MSF as a business. Now that MSF and the Mother Base is complete destroyed by Cipher he is a changed man and will do anything to rebuild the organization and is out for revenge.

I think they're torturing these people because they probably want to find moles within the organization or what's left of it, or perhaps they are making their recruits tougher so they don't give in to torture.

Exactly. Kaz just lost potentially nine years of his life to being tortured and maimed, and homeboy is out for revenge. It actually seems like Kaz is angrier than Big Boss.

And, obviously, Ocelot is just along for the ride, because he looooves torture :p

EDIT - From that interview:
We can't talk about how we're going to release it because we still haven't decided yet.
Ah HAH! I knew he was pulling a Kojima on this! KojiPro's PR has obviously been taught to say that "the two games make up Metal Gear Solid V together", knowing that people will take that to mean they're on the same disc, but tricksy Kojima is just talking about MGSV in a metaphorical sense, rather than something that's going to appear on store shelves. Now he's been questioned directly and caught out.

Interesting find about Eli being Liquid
http://art-eater.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/ELI-LIQUID.jpg

Plus this statement from Kojima to me makes me believe Solid is going to be in this one.

Well he's a child... I don't know if I have someone to recommend but let me think! (laughs) At the same time I don't even know if Solid Snake will make an appearance in this game. If we said anything right now it would be a spoiler and bad for the fans, so we're going to stay away from that question.

Link: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/414360/interviews/e3-interview-kojima-on-mgs-5/

Generally if something is not going to happen we don't consider it a spoiler. For example someone says "hey you spoiled the movie because you told me what happens." <-- That is what we generally consider a spoiler.

People normally don't say "hey you spoiled the movie because you told me something that doesn't happen".

I wouldn't be shocked if it hit this year. I mean, MGS4 was 5 years ago now, and if you look at the history of MGS games, that is the largest gap between games ever.

Do games ever release after November?
Metal Gear Solid 2: NA November 14, 2001

Metal Gear Solid 3 - NA November 17, 2004

Those are IN November of course, but close enough to December.
