Blimey, Konami's controversy-ridden Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is starting to sound a bit like GTA V - The Games Cabin
Just played Ground Zeroes last week and it didn't really strike me as all that violent, in terms of blood/gore in taking out the 'bad guys'. I'm sure content-wise and story-wise it will be 'dark' and have some extreme violence, but in the actual gameplay, it actually seemed kinda 'tame' considering what you were doing in the game... I loved the little humour in it, like keeping track of how far the body goes when you blow somebody up...
Dont forget ground zeros was the first fox engine release using code thats now going on 2 years old. Who knows what phantom pain has for violence. Remember the old ones had it were you could shot a guards arm/leg then watch him be in pain and limp around. Heck look at the blood in certain mgs1 scenes or mg3 survivor mode ha yeah i am not worried they dont shy away from gore.
"Motiveless killing"? I really gotta do some research and find out exactly what it is that is required to earn this...and can't wait to see what it is in this game, or if times are a changing. MGS solid usually goes out of its way, and will again, to give an alternative to killing, using non lethal options. I wonder if these options are the reason why killing anyone makes it motiveless. Wouldn't that be ironic? Maybe it's so open world now that you can kill everyone in the game. Maybe Kojima played too much Skyrim and Fallout. Don't get me wrong. After watching the end of Ground Zeroes, I can see why it deserves it's rating. And I for one, am glad we are still considered adult and resposible enough to consume such entertainment, but I can't wait to see just what the hell is up here...lol!
Yay!, I can't wait for Quiet to get a scratch on her leg or arm so the "extremists" can start to make tons of blogs about how misogynistic this game is
Meanwhile, somewhere in America, this man is biting his pillow and sobbing himself to sleep at night, knowing he can't do a thing. http://www.blogcdn.com/www....
He bites his pillow for a few reasons.
Every open world game that came out in the last decade allows you to commit motiveless killings. I hate how every single detail pertaining to MGS V gets its own article. Please god not another David Hayter v. Kiefer Sutherland article I beg you internets.
I consider myself a Metal Gear/Solid die-hard and even I don't have much issue with Sutherland. While I would prefer Richard Doyle because he was an awesome Big Boss, Sutherland doesn't say enough for you to completely hate his voice (which, by the way, honestly isn't terrible). I actually think it's a decent half-way-old voice between Hayter and Doyle. Just my two cents.
I agree with you. Maybe we should submit an article.
Bully doesn't let you do motiveless killing, that's just one off the top of my head... As for "another MGS V" article, I do agree that the usual "OMG bring back Hayter!" ones are naff, but this one is at the very least mildly interesting due to the fact that the game might allow players to work outsite the usual rules of engagement by shooting innocent people in the head. Just my two pennies.
Every AC game, All the elder scrolls games, Every GTA, Fallout, Red Dead Redemption, and those are just off the top of my head. In short, is this news worthy? I guess I just want people to put some more effort in their submissions instead of simply writing a short blurb on one minor and at times hardly worth mentioning fact.
it still doesn't get even half of what witcher 3 got, i hated witcher for being so overhyped they were 5 new articles every 2 minutes about that game, compared to wtcher this is literally nothing
Dark vibes, I dig it.
So if the killing had a motive it would be considered less offensive?
Well yeah... If you murdered someone because they killed your brother, that would make a bit more sense than murdering someone for no reason...
"No greater good, no just cause, all for revenge" Sounds like a motive
So killing is alright as long as there's a motive behind it
Killing someone because they were trying to kill you for instance
Loving all these M for mature games. No boundries, everything goes. And not really surprising seeing Ground zero was also pretty violent.
It's a video game. Am I missing something?
Well I do expect this game to be pretty dark, it's a tragic story about Big Boss, and from what I've seen from the trailer the Quiet character gets abused and there is just a lot of terrible stuff going on, the motiveless killing is probably not just part of the gameplay but also part of the story scenes.
Well in GZ,we do carve a young child open without anesthesia and the blood gushes. Curious as to this level of violence though
That wasn't a child. That would be bad if it was for reasons Peacewalker players would understand.
