I love you OP, but I just can't expect anything more than this.

"New location" = Same TGS Africa demo.

Man, they're showing this game EVERYWHERE. It'd be better to just finish the thing instead of making demos and presentations for every event under the sun.

Lol. If you've been following the press up until this point, I think it's a little late for a media blackout.
Not really. We have seen pretty much nothing of the main story yet.

Man, I feel like a lazy ass. But thank you good sir. You're a scholar and a gentleman.
That's a good lookin dude right there. It definitely looks like they took references from his MGS4 character model. Did they make a composite of a buncha different faces and elements and scan in a 3d printed cast/mold of the face, or did they design it in the fox engine ground up?

I'm getting exhausted by the preview cycle for this game. First they announce it nearly two years earlier than they should have, now it shows up at some event every month. They already sold me, just tell me when I can buy it.

yeah. where did you think it was?
Some place in the Middle East still. It's not all desert there, so I thought it was just a more temperate environment from that area.

In any case, we'll be seeing something new, so that's cool.

With reasonable expectations, I'd like to at least see the TGS demo done a different way. I want to see inside that mansion that we saw in the jungle.

I agree with you there. My point is that I think we've seen about as much as we're going to see of the story, and that starting a media black out now isn't going to save you from any further information than we already know about.

Who knows. I'm just always delighted to see the MGS4 similarities. They definitely did a good job keeping it together. I have to wonder though, will they explain Big Boss' loss of shrapnel at some point? It also just came to me, I bet by the end of the game that Big Boss and maybe Miller get organic replacement limbs. From

Of topic here... Any one hear from Love Deterrence lately? Is he perma banned? Does he want to come back?

Don't hype it! Don't expect anything new. By new location, I'm 100% sure it's Africa. I don't think they had time to prepare a completely new location for a new gaming event. Moreover, expect somewhat the same demo too. Really don't hype it! If KONAMI is gong to announce something specific to the region, expect something like a Russian themed sneaking suit or something of that caliber. Probably a Russian tank cardboard box.

Wasn't the composer of the plagiarized song Russian?
intadestin
Yes he was. He passed away in 1998 before MGS1 was released. He probably wouldn't have had any problems with the TAPPY version of the music but whichever studio recorded Sviridov's piece had a problem with it. It's a shame that such a beautiful inspiring iconic music was removed from the series.

I agree. I used to watch the e3 trailer that unlocked with VR missions over and over again just for the music, when I was like, 12. I'm pretty sure it unlocked in the ending credits after you beat MGS 2-3 times as well. That made me so hungry for a sequel. Then came MGS2. Man I miss them days.

I thought this as well...but doubt we'll see that either. Im guessing the mansion is part of the main story mission - so doubt we'll see it till we play the game

What a buncha low hanging fruit this is.

Uuuh, maybe the reason why some people know who the (russian) composer is now IS because of the mgs main theme? Sure there are similarities, but you don't see John Carpenter getting pissy over the escape from new york similarities. It's music snobbery at it's worst.

Jean-Michel Basquiot once said something to the effect of "Don't talk to me about influences man. It's your idea going through my new mind."

same applies here. It's variation and permutation.

I can tell you one thing for sure, I'd have no idea who this dude was if I hadn't been exposed to some variation of his work via MGS.

Also, get those 190 posts in so that you can be a full fledged member by the end of the month.

I know, right?

And I'm trying.

Actually, I think there is some video I saw awhile ago where they're discussing the main theme being plagiarized. There's some fat ass or somebody showing kojima the chord progressions. Will post it if i find it.

well, afghanistan does have a jungle... but it looks nothing like the one in the tgs demo.

konami have done a good job of realising that people all over the world have internet access and that gamers generally keep up with news on upcoming titles, so i'm hoping they're not saying 'new' and just showing off what we've seen at tgs.

Konami should have just paid the rightsholders for the music. I bet pride got in the way of that.

Isn't this for Russian press? So the 'new' area will just be the jungle demo presumably.

They wouldn't announce/show anything new at a Russian gaming convention. If anything, it's the same mission played slightly differently with Russian subtitles.
