Metal Gear Solid V News thread.

I tend to create a lot of topics for news, and that irritates both me and a lot of others. So, from now on, I'm going to post news I find in this topic. Others don't need to do the same.

With that out of the way, take a look at this: http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/048/274/l_530171bcaef26.jpg

It says "Skull Face: Commander of the XOF (identity unknown)" (Can someone confirm that?)

Two things to take away from this:

1) XOF probably stands for something. This was obvious due to the way Kaz pronounced it in the Jamais Vu trailer. This is also probably the case because if it wasn't, then it would have said "Commander of the XOF unit / squad, not just "The XOF".

2) "Identity Unknown". This probably means that we will eventually discover the true identity of Skull Face, that he is not just a character without a past or that we won't get to know who he truly is. Whether he turns out to be a new or returning character is to be seen.

Both of these points are obviously just speculation from my part.

Another thing is that Ground Zeroes will include summaries from past games in the loading screens, based on this picuture: http://www.inside-games.jp/imgs/zoom/458726.jpg

New interview with Kojima on The Phantom Pain: Here's the summery of the info:

The interviewer asks Kojima about the comas, and even talks about the coma Big Boss was supposedly in for the LET project (the one that is supposed to be a mistranslation). Kojima never says the coma in 1972 did not happen, and proceeds by only saying there's only once he's in a coma, and to explain that you'll need to play The Phantom Pain (same thing as in the original GI article). Kojima seems to acknowledge the LET coma, so I'm not sure what's that all about.

Just like in the article, Kojima explains that the marines in Camp Omega are not with XOF, and are there only because their superiors asked them to be.

When asked about The Patriot's presence in The Phantom Pain, Kojima said he can't disclose anything yet. The only thing he said is that "There's Skull Face, There's Zero, and the relationship between them will be portrayed"

When asked about Zero and his relationship with Big Boss, Kojima says that will also be portrayed in The Phantom Pain.

When asked if the story will bridge the gap between Big Boss' story, and Solid Snake's story, Kojima laughs and tells him to not look him in the eye because he's really tempted to talk about it. He concludes that portion by saying that there will be a very specific way that The Phantom Pain will use to put things together.

When asked about the core gameplay differences between GZ and TPP, Kojima says the basic controls will not change. But there will be some new things you'll be able to do, and the game will feel different in TPP. He does go into more detail for TPP, but the things he talked about are things I covered in a previous topic. He did say that you'll be able to rescue scientists in The Phantom Pain, something I don't believe was said before, though is irrelevant.

Kojima has yet to find the time to play GTAV. He says that with The Phantom Pain, he wants to create a game that even people who don't have a lot of time will be able to play. There will be long missions, short missions. It will be like an episodic TV series.


That's it. They did talk about a few things already mentioned in the GI article, so I did not include those.

You can make as many topics as you want. It just better to have consolidated threads during events like E3 where multiple pieces of information will appear at a time.

Sure, but we're edging closer to the release of Ground Zeroes, and we're getting a lot of news each and every day, so it's a bit more convenient I guess.

Tagged. I also like it better this way. A lesser chance of running into isolated spoilers.

Kojima says he'll probably upload the comparison video tomorrow Tuesday. He wanted to do it today, but didn't since today is a holiday in the US.

Would that mean in a couple of hours? It's Tuesday in Japan right now. I hope the video can be downloaded and played on Windows Media Player. YouTube doesn't support 60 fps and has compression so we can't see the true differences in a YT video.

I know it's simply on GI's behalf, but I couldn't help but notice in that article with Kojima's interview, when you right-click to save Eli's picture, the image is titled "LiquidSnakePhantom610".
