It seems Konami is doing everything in their power to disgrace Kojima's legacy on his way out. The Gamescom Trailer for MGS V is the heartbreaking icing on the cake.
I don't think anything can diminish my hype levels after watching that MGSV GC2015 Motherbase gameplay demo. https://www.youtube.com/wat... It blew my mind to peices with the possibilities. Kojima truly innovated on the base building gameplay mechanics introduced in Peace Walker/Portable Ops. I can't wait for the story of BIgBoss to unfold , especially as it introduces Solid Snake and Liquid. It makes me even more annoyed with Konami that they are denying Kojima the praise he rightly deserves for what is shaping up to be his magnum opus.
I agree 100%. I started to watch the demo I was like "Meh, Mother Base is cool but I want to see real gameplay" and by the end I was like "Oh my god, this is revolutionnary". Kojima is a genious. I don't care about Konami.
I'm just glad that the mother base online crap isn't forced. It would be annoying as hell to be in the middle of a story mission at the height of the plot just for the game to go "oh hey, this is happening....sorry to ruin everything for you". I won't build an FOB until after I complete the story, which by then all my mother base stats should be maxed and I can have the ultimate FOB.
That's exactly how I felt with Watch_Dogs and the hacking. It got extremely tiring to try and move between side missions and get pulled into someone's shenanigans and to a whole other part of the map. But afterwards it was a good bit of fun
You can turn off the FOB invasions if you want to so you're not constantly running back and forth to your base to defend.
Actually a leaked gamer said if you don't put care into motherbase at the beginning then you might get stuck in some missions in the game because you might not have the proper guns and equipment to complete that mission. Also you can't make non lethal weapons in the beginning until you recruited enough people and by mission 20 the player was still struggling cause he didn't put his time into motherbase
@rebeljoe14 The FOBs aren't part of that, they just give stuff like more soldiers, money, and potentially more supplies, but leaves you open to lose your supplies and soldiers too. It's a MP mode,that looks fun, but annoying too, I'm also glad you can just turn it off.
actually, unless it gave you some significant sort of advantage in the story, the FOB doesn't seem like something you'd stick with after the game is finished, at least not to me
* This mess doesn't effect PES 2016, which should be a solid quality game. * Also they still have Suikoden.....I wish somebody else did, but yea since I'm newer into Suikoden I'd like some kind of revival, and it doesn't sound like it's a priority from them. ^ That gets to me more than this MGS stuff.
As a fan of the MG series, I'm still divided between buying or not the game. Should I buy it because this is the last MG produced with Kojima? That way Konami will see how much sale will be lowered in the next game made without Kojima? Or should I not buy the game out if constert because of the way they treated Kojima and its team? I mean, all the money is going to Konami while Kojima and its don't even get respected... Really a head scratcher for me right now.
Buy the game, lets make it as succesful as we can in appreciation for Kojima. He still gets royalties if I'm not mistaken.
Thank you for your advice ArchangelMike, even if I'm not sure if Konami screw over Kojima about royalties. They might,they are capable of such. But has nothing came out saying anything about it, I'll stay positive and buy the game.
Awesome title is awesome
Comparing a video game trailer to the isis beheading video?! I'm not one to be politically correct but that seems excessive.
the comparison may be hyperbolic, but for the sake of this conversation, the analogy isn't trailer=ISIS beheading tape, but that your emotional investment in global politics and how this effects your daily life in a disheartening way is similar to how this trailer effects the landscape of video games for me personally. There's a large divide in how it effects me, but it is still very much present
I just hope Konami gives Kojima the credit he so rightfully deserves in the actual beginning/end credits of the game. It's bad enough that they removed his iconic 'A Hideo Kojima Game' from the game packaging. It would be criminal if they tried to remove all traces of him from the game completely.
the trailer gave barely a sideways glance at the Kojima Productions logo, maybe a half second? It's almost worse, like "Oh yeah and I guess this guy helped a little or whatever"
was that trailer intended for us is all I ask? that trailer had FOR CASUAL GAMES written all over it. and I am not sure why anyone is surprised, we were told by Jeff on gametrailers.com that e3 mgs 5 was the last trailer kojima is doing for the series did that trailer make you and u am talking to the author, did it make you not want to buy the game? didn't kojima release enough trailers to whers we shouldn't care what konami does we know a lot of mgs 5 through trailer and now it's time to either buy it or not
Hey @showtimefolks, I've written previously about my mixed feelings on buying the game at this point. But as far as how casual that trailer made the series look, and how entirely classless and unremarkable it was, I would have just looked away if it wasn't for the previous trailers. Kojima trailers are a class of their own, and yeah they did a great deal, but we should definitely care about what Konami does with the time we have before it sees shelves.
true man it saddens me knowing this is most likely the last mgs game by kojima. but this maybe whats also best for kojima, think about it. He has been talking about doing something new and fresh and walking away from mgs series. but I feel like as long as he was with konami mgs fans like me wouldn't leave him alone till he does one more mgs game but thee should be a proper send off for a legend in gaming. I truly hope he signs with Sony and I am not saying because I want his games to be exclusive, fact of the matter is Sony gives it's developers more freedom than any other publisher IMO I hope he developed a lot of great games kojima production should be on top of his games. I have that fan made cover ready to be put into the game sleeve
This whole situation is just so ugly, it's hard to watch as an MGS fan.
Relax, the trailer was NOT that bad. Sure, it didn't have all the intrigue and was fairly generic, but it had a few cool gameplay scenes. Remember MGS4 and it's prelaunch trailer that literally had the guy who did the voice of every movie trailer ever? MGS trailers aren't always super artistic, sometimes they just are what they are.
^ All of this, that's the interesting thing about the Internet. It has a very short memory.
Times like these, I'm glad I never got into this series. Rough.
What? WHAT?? WHHHHAAAT??? You are glad that you've never played one of the greatest series in gaming? WHAT???? WHAT?!?! Just... WHAT??
no kojima; no good trailer
Okay people, judge me all you want, but I gotta know, who is that in your avatar kind sir?
Denise Milani ;) Enjoy!!
like azshorty2003 said: "Denise Milani ;)"
Pretty amazing trailer (but no Kojima). But I really wanted Solid Snake I know this will never happen. Still, this looks a great way to end the legend & free Kojima from his gamer shackles. Much love 😘n
The funny thing is Konami is just pouring more gas on the fire. People who didn't really know who Kojima was are now going to know since they are bringing the controversy to the forefront. It's the Streisand effect. It's only going to benefit Kojima and whichever publisher snatches him up for his next game.
i won't be buying the game. not supporting Konami.
Yeah, don't buy the game. So future devs know not to make games like this in the future, because it won't be profitable.
WTF did I just read? Konami released an average trailer. So what? This article is the very definition of hyperbole. Your promise is worth nothing. Your article is bad and you should feel bad.
It's an opinion piece, disagree and move along. Don't be a complete dick about it.
Who cares about this fanboy garbage of an article, the author can't even take criticism. All you see here are a bunch of kojima fanboys who think they know what happened between konami and kojima. Instead, I want to know if that MGSV red PS4 console is coming to North America, if it does that woud be sweeeeeet!!
@SolidUSP Exactly. Game on, BROTHER!! @B_Rickaby Am I not allowed to share my opinion about his opinion piece?? And in my humble opinion the author is the one being a dick about it. This guy deserves a seat on the show TMZ.
The trailer was fine article begging for hits
