In an attempt to keep Metal Gear’s success going after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami is attempting to bring us a survival horror game set in an alternate version of the Metal Gear universe.
Konami is just leaving games but killing their IPs in the process and they dont care. Nothing is for their saving. There was an awesome fan-made game Castlevania Lacarde Chronicles 2 that released this year on PC and Konami wouldn't bring it to mainstream even despite their approval and that the game had SOTN actors in it. Shame. The Netflix show is also excellent. Konami should let fans carry the legacy and quit being idiots.
Konami stopped caring about big video gamea a long time ago tbh. They have cards and gambling that they make the vast of their money.
This is where I hate Konami after what they did to their employees, not just Kojima himself.
let metal gear die and hopefully they will sell the IP to another company who can then hire Hideo Kojima to continue the masterpiece
Metal Gear already ended, it doesn't need continuing
For me, the series ended with 4.. just let it be
It definetly ended with 4. MGS 5 was a big slap in the face for fans. If it wasn't for the main title and the occasional MGS references I wouldn't even know I played an MGS game.
Konami are kinda out of the market right now, MGSV's release brought them back into it for a relatively short period then they were done.
Dont care if it saves them or not but im really looking forward to this. It was the game i wanted most this year just because its more METAL GEAR my favorite francise ever.
How can you fucking possibly be looking forward to this fucking garbage?
Im sorry i forgot that you have played and finished this so called garbage. The gameplay in Metal Gear V was some of the best gameplay in any game. So more of that gameplay is a good thing for me.
I don't agree with Yogurt, but this is a zombie game, not proper Metal Gear. I would just say, it would be a good idea to manage your expectations.
I understand that its not the typical Metal Gear, but Rising was not the typical Metal Gear either but that was great. So im not expecting much but hope to be surprised by it.
Lol I love how you get downvoted solely because you're optimistic about something you're looking forward to. Great community here. "Oh noez, he's not hating on Konami! Where's muh pitchfork?!?!"
The game looks like a silly re-skin of MGO, and it has zero purpose in the Metal Gear universe, alternate or not. They're just doing it to grab a fast buck from whomever actually buys this. It looks like trash. That's why.
"Zero purpose" lol. Also lol @ calling it a cash grab, literally all the MG games were made to make money, this is no different. I've seen a lot of people admit that the game looks interesting to them, so whether or not anybody else thinks it looks bad or whatever doesn't make any difference. I just think it's hilarious how MG has always had outlandish nonsense in it, but the supposed "hardcore" MG fans suddenly draw the line at zombies lol. If Kojima were making this game, this backlash would be nonexistent.
I LOVE the Metal Gear franchise just as much as you do but Im not getting my hopes up for the newest game.
Just here to say that you do have solid points against other users you replied to. The thing is yeah the gameplay is established but the creator and brains is gone. Take that for what it's worth, many people like me have a bias. It's just a shame as a Metal Gear franchise that it has been reduced to a zombie game. They could've used the engine and gameplay to a new IP instead of relying on a legacy IP like Metal Gear.
The thing that will keep Konami surviving... only in people's heads is the the following. #fuckkonami
The last meta gear I played was Snake Eater... The franchise is dead! IMO
You missed 4, wich imo is the next best one after MGS 1.
MGS3 is the greatest no debate.
MGS4 is incredible. But MGS3 is one of the greatest games ever made
MGSV has the best gameplay in the series so you both missed that.
Gameplay doesn't save a game with a terrible plot and story lol.
@naroon It's actually extremely fun for like 100 hours. And then you realize the story is going nowhere and isn't anything a real MGS fan would've wanted.
the game's plot so boring that its hard to keep going. dont know how some sites gave it 10 rating its beyond reasons.
Metal Gear Solid 4 was also excellent.
MG is nothing without Kojima.
Konami is less than nothing without Kojima.
lol with this mindset you will never play a sequel to any game where a certain developer leave the studio. konami is doing ok. no individual is bigger thn the organization itself its a team thing.
I have played those sequels, and they weren't as good. Take Dark Souls 2 as an example: The only one in the series (including Demon's Souls, and Bloodborne) where Miyazaki was not involved, and it's the worst one. I think even God of War: Ascension is another example of one of the original devs leaving, and the game ended up not being as good as the rest of the series. Believe it or not, the developer does matter.
Don't see why not , they have talented, hardworking people in charge who are trying to do something different . So I say bring it on , you have my consumer support.
I think metal gear v was overrated. I don't think the open world map was good for a metal gear game. The world was basically barren of anything interesting to do. I'll pass on this one. I don't need a non Kojima metal gear game.
they played into the hands of certain fans who complained about too much story...metal gear v could have been excellent but they focused too much on gameplay and side missions like most open world games do...as a result the story suffers
They should have the traditional linear formula with bosses in between. The open world stuff didn't work at all for a heavy story driven game like MGS.
Very much agree. Never played 5 and never will but 4 was the first PS3 game I played and loved it to death.
It is more likely to seal their fate. Survive is an insult to the Metal Gear name.
I don't think so. Kojima is Metal Gear, and he's long gone from Konami.
Yet most of the comments above say that MGSV was way over hyped and that story was bad. Yet you do know Kojima is mostly to blame for that bad story dont you ?. You can give all the crap like but Konami wouldn't let him do it his way and canned his ass, But nowone knows what went dont between them they are all to blame for the story in V. So in my opinion Metal Gear can too SURVIVE without Kojima.
The thumbnail makes it look like Konami is visually tearing Metal Gear apart and that character is trying to escape the destruction
If it were any other franchise, maybe it would have a chance, but when you can the guy who has had his name on the cover of the games, you're gonna have a tough time salvaging it.
It also attempted to charge £40 for bomberman on switch... still not bought it and won't be buying this no Hideo not interested.
Konami don't need saving, they make most of the bank balance up from those gambling/game machines and as dar as the game goes, I think it will sell ok, not proper metal gear numbers but by the "looks" of it it doesn't seem like they put in the usual ridiculous budget for a metal gear game, will probably make a profit plus the micro transactions and dlc will help, but I think we've seen the last of the proper metal gear games, I personally won't be picking this up just because it doesn't look like my type of game.
No but perhaps after the Castlevania Netflix show they could do more of that with their IPs since it's obvious they aren't going to sell them.
konami should sell all there gaming ips wuth them still being able to do they pachinko
Metal Gear on the hill of silence?
