I just woke up.

No way that is on Vita, that is next gen right there.....

If it is on Vita, then wow the power of the Fox Engine is insane, and that's definitely fox engine, you can tell, also the camera work reminds me of ground zeros.

After MGS4, I am not going to play any other conventional MGS [that means, it excludes games made by Platinum].

I am not even interested enough to allow the gifs load -_-

Yep, british flag. Major Zero check.

Hospital check.

Also it's canon that Major Zero took Big Boss' sperm at a hospital.

Plus Moby Dick and sperm whale.

Solid Snake had an Assassin's Creed cameo so the most logical conclusion is that we will play as Solid's Snake sperm's journey as his descendant is logged into an animus.

Watching the trailer several times, this is one of the best trailers I see in some time, way better than GZ.

Not the trailer by itself, but the montage and the music is superb.

Makes me think there's something very obvious hidden in the trailer. Its probably just the Metal Gear Solid V in the logo though.

Also, any significance that every patient in the hospital is male, with shaved heads? And I can't tell if the car crash scene is taken out of sequence of events, as in it happens later post-hospital.

Must be when they're trying to leave the hospital, there are pills flying everywhere.

Is it just me, but did any of you also find that trailer unsettling and a little disturbing. It was pretty brutal in its violence and twisted with the imagery and odd music/ sound effects.

Someone earlier cited Jacobs Ladder, which I kinda agree with.

I thought the gunshot to the head was a bit unnecessary. Otherwise the only complaint I had about it (before I realized it's likely MGS related) was that the text interruptions felt out of place. I would have preferred if it was all just the video cut together with no text.

With all the retcons they've done since then, is Metal Gear even canon to the series anymore?

I don't know. The only Metal Gear where I honestly care about the story is 3, and even then we have flying hover scooters in Soviet Russia, so I care about it in the way I care about a good bad 60s/70s movie.

Amazing trailer. This is what I've wanted ever since MGS3. There was so much awesome plot stuff to work with...well what I really wanted was a game starring The Boss, but this'll do.

If this really is Metal Gear, then it's probably just a nightmare like the one in MGS3. How else can a huge fucking fire whale be explained?

You can't possibly still have doubts with all the evidence in this thread? The only question is if it's Ground Zeroes or a separate game at this point.

i think it may be Ground Zeroes. well, Ground Zeroes portion (breaking in that base and trying to rescue that kid) may be like virtuous mission from mgs3, and then something happens - landing Snake in a coma - and then the main game (MGSV) commences.

so ground zeroes = virtuous mission from mgs3 / tanker mission from mgs2
and MGSV = main game

The success of others absolutely infuriates me.

Reading up on Project MKUltra, I have to wonder if its connected at all, as it sounds similarly fucked up. Has MGS made any reference to it? I've yet to play Peace Walker.

In any case, the hallucinogenic stuff is fascinating.

But Kojima said GZ wasn't MGS5...so...he's either trolling or is just really 2 games.

Yeah, I was quite interested in the game even before the Metal Gear stuff became apparent. A game about a returning soldier who was injured badly in an accident struggling with his own body and his mind (PTSD, the hallucinations of apocalyptic imagery) after going through such a traumatic event. Which seemed really cool. Quite a mature subject which could be really interesting (meditating on violence and war and that stuff...which kojima does quite a bit so I should have guessed) Yeah, I really like the atmosphere of this trailer, I hope we get more of that.


Maybe it's a horror survival metal gear game, those pictures of the 'psycho mantis' floating figures...a horror game set in an army hospital with a severely injured protagonist...woah

may not be vita, but definitely not next gen. poly count for the character model actually looks pretty low for even ps360 standard, which is what start the Vita speculation. I assume next gen is capable to handle a much higher poly model.
