What exactly have you firgured out, that its a MG game, that is obvious. But please tell us more, what game is this exactly? What Snake is that? What is actually going on? You say its not a puzzle so please answer us.
Im not saying any of those things, im saying that whole shtick of "this is not a metal gear solid game" went out the window 5 seconds in, that's all.

There's nothing there to speculate what kind of game it is, so the intent of the trailer wasnt to throw clues for people to figure out WHAT kind of MGS game is or when does it take place, it was meant to be seen as a new IP and it is way too obvious that it isnt.

In all honesty most of the disappointment comes from the fact that id much rather have a new IP (and heck, id be even more excited if Kojima worked on it) rather than another fucking metal gear game.


Its almost like a joke on itself. A lot of people are waiting for Kojima's next thing and "ZING! fooled you! im trapped on Metal Gear foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

God damn you kojima, the seemingly out of place british flag and missing arm has me thinking it's an old revived liquid snake now. If only we heard him speak..

If big boss can still be alive at the end of MGS4, after the ridiculous amount of times he was supposed to die then why cant liquid?

It can't be liquid. It's the wrong arm.

Yeah, the horizontal lens flares on all the lights are straight out of the shots of Camp Omega in the Ground Zeroes trailer. They were all over that trailer. Same FOX engine lighting.

It's the wrong arm, Liquid's body was planted at the scene of the tanker disaster and buried which would be awful for preservation, and Liquid and Solidus's body parts were grafted onto Big Boss to revive him.

Can we give Kojima a standing ovation. He has truly reached a level that we didn't think was possible, even for him, in terms of trolling and whatnot.
