    I see Kojima is still making inane movies that run in realtime - and probably cost more to make than a real moveehh.

    First one to make the obvious Phantom Penis joke unlocks an achievement.

    At this point we have more games with Big Boss as the main character rather than Snake. Please make it end.

    Snake looks like Liam Neeson here.

    Also, I thought the last MGS was, well, the last one?

    Kojima has been making the very last MGS since MGS1. Then 2. Then 3. Then 4. He's never going to get out of it as long as Konami has a say.

    David Hayter was apparently not even aked to reprise his role as Snake/Big Boss in MGSV. Kiefer Sutherland is now the new voice actor.

    Hayter gonna hate.

    NOOOOOO. You must be joking! Hayter is 50% of the character. If this is true, I'm gonna cry.

    Nah, it must be Hayter, Kojima knows that he IS Snake.

    Watch the trailer and listen to Snake at the end. That's not Hayter.

    It's probably Richard Doyle again. He voiced Big Boss in MGS4.

    Big Boss is to Snake what Ken and Akuma are to Ryu. I'd rather have a wholly new character to play with rather than a wannabe Solid Snake. It's just a lame cop out to put Sanke to sleep and then use a character who's literally his copy.

    Actually Solid Snake is Big Boss' copy. Big Boss is the superior character anyway.

    Fuck Hayter.
    I'll never forgive him for writing that horrible script for Watchmen the Movie.

    You know what I mean. Snake came first, Big Boss was fleshed out as a character much later. Before MGS3 he was just Sean Connery who was killed with a can of aerosol and a lighter.

    I've only played MGS 2, 3 and 4, and MGS 3 is the only one I liked, mostly because it was a hilarious pulpy spy story that didn't take itself very seriously, and had a cool setting, characters and boss battles. You get the feeling that Kojima genuinely enjoyed making this game and was passionate about it, something that's missing from most other games in the series. I've heard MGS 1 is supposed to be similar but haven't played it, is it worth looking into?

    MGS1 feels very primitive after MGS3, no cqc, no crouching, fixed camera. It's campy and fun though.

    Knowing Kojima, it's all part of an elaborate plot twist that you aren't actually Snake.

    It's not Snake if it's not Hayter.

    I've always enjoyed MGS series for 'stealth' and themes its story followed.

    We are going to play as Big Boss again, it seems.

    Trailer is kind of random shit but does make you wonder if you are familiar with the story.

    Still miles ahead of stuff like Bioshock or Call of Duty games, at least Kojima tries something different.

    MGS1 has one part where you must watch ass movements in order to advance.

    You tell me.

    Well at least we will have something to look forward to and by that I don't mean red, green & blue endings. Also I got a impression that either Ground Zero or Phantom Pain starts where the other ends. Grey Fox will probably make an appearance.
    I agree, its like Legacy of Kain series wouldn't be what it is without its great voice actors.

    Is that snake? I dont remember a mechanic hand. Then Again who gives a fuck about changing voice actors in a series that now sports bossfights against unicorns made of flame. also, is that a fucking flying whale who eats a heli? And is he also made of flames?

    First of all, putting Bioshock and CoD into the same context is really scratching close to heresy.

    Secondly, what exactly is Kojima doing new? Another sequel?
