Almost there! Tomorrow, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be shown at Konami's pre-E3 show at 10 am PDT. You will be able to watch a live stream on GameSpot.
Hell to da effin yeah. Cant wait to watch it.
This is great news. PW had to be censored in Japan, but it looks like they're not holding back for this one.
Yeah im glad, the game looks so good. I know he will blow us away at e3. Cant wait. =]
Is PW = PenisWilly?
Why was it censored in JP?
Hey Nyxus, I think they would censor violence or blood in Japan while in the US , they would censor the uh-la-la Kojima special touch and beef up the violence. The total opposite for the 2 countries. You know what I mean. XD
I'm so glad Kojima chose that route. The truer and mature, the realer and more emotional it'll make the game.
I wonder if it has to do with seeing Big Boss's darker side in this game. It also reminds me of a comment Kojima made earlier: “I’m going to be targeting a lot of taboos, a lot of mature themes, that really are quite risky. Honestly, I’m not even sure if i’ll be able to release the game! [...] As a producer, it’s my job to try and sell the game. But I’m approaching this project from the point of view of a creator, where I’m prioritizing creativity over sales.” From the looks of it, this game will be something special.
gr8 love mgs
Can't wait! I love how Kojima is really pushing these "taboos" he talked about.
I think we might see Big Boss recruiting child soldiers, he already sort of did that in Peace Walker, but maybe they'll go one step further.
What if there are actual bases you have to infiltrate that are guarded by children with automatic firearms and you have to take them out? That would be very risky. I do think Big Boss will definitely be recruiting children of his own as well.
yeah I think that black kid in the tech presentation backs that up
Yeah. I could see Kojima implementing blood diamonds in some way.
This will be the game of the year for me !!! :D
@ Donnieboi: PW was censored in Japan because they wanted to have a teen rating. The torture scene that uses a stun rod in the western version, is used to tickle Snake with in the Japanese version, if I'm not mistaken. And Kojima was quite pissed about it. :P
Interesting. I find it so bizarre that Japan censors such things when some of the most violent,sexual, and goriest media comes from there.
Well, in this case it was because they (Konami probably) wanted the game to have a Teen rating. So that means more stuff gets censored in order to pass this rating.
That is because when you suppress something to much, you get the opposite result. Too much censorship and years later Hentai was born.
How many people own PS3 and want this game like me? ^~^
