Is it better than Metal Gear Acid
This game would probably be better on acid
Isn't that what the developers were using when they came up with the story?
I had a Metal Gear?
Metal Gear Acid was fun.
Probably not Metal Gear acid was a great card game that game is so underrated it's not even funny.
Game is probably pretty good but for some reason they called it a metal gear game. I think the stigma with Konami and all the drama with mgs5 is going hurt this game.
Maybe to blind haters yeah but i didnt jump on A band wagon i waited to see what would happen
They called a zombie survival title Metal Gear in hope to draw interest.
Can we all be real here? MGSV included enemies that pretty much behaved like zombies. MGS4 also had soldiers 'overcome with emotion' who behaved like zombies. Also this is a non canon mode and not full price. It's like complaining about Undead Nightmare having zombies because RDR didn't have them in the main game or the Zombies mode of COD.
@generic-user-name Exactly! Kojima just explains everything with "nano bots" which is fine. But what they were was zombies (seriously their behavior was that of a zombie) Maybe these zombies have nano bots too idk. But i dont pretend that all MGS makes sense, i just enjoy the game. I really like the read dead comparison, thats a great example. To me it just seems like Halo, Gears, or Mass Effect. So its different people who cares? I only care if the games good. You could call it "my fart" IDC. Anyways hope this and kojimas games are good, cause more good games is always great.
@generic-user-name: Really don't see your point since MGS5 was called out for having zombies in it for it's last chapter. As for MGS4 though a sub-theme, don't remember actually fighting zombie soldiers. Those creepy three armed balls though...
So how is this different from RDR and Undead Nightmare?
I agree but I think the development team missing in general is going to hurt this game.
Not my Metal Gear
Will definitely give it a shot when it comes out.
We're going to continue to see these "why survive is a good game" pieces. I'm probably going to continue ignoring them
But your here???
I don't think anyone thought the gameplay wouldn't be good. It's all the shit surrounding Konami and the Metal Gear series as a whole, and the fact that no one wants a multiplayer only Metal Gear survival zombie game, that people have a problem with.
"I don't think anyone thought the gameplay wouldn't be good" Is those a joke? The blind hate mob for this hame was on another level ppl thought everything about this game would be bad. And the game will fail not because it wont be good and fun but because the hate mob will make sure it fails
"hame" okay slow down and stop rage typing. This game is likely going to fail because many games without the original core team members statistically fail. I don't just like Metal Gear Solid because of the characters or because of the name of the game I like it because of the quality in the design that the creators bring to the table but the second that original team is gone clearly I'm going to second-guess wasting my time with a game not made by the original talent look at Mass Effect Andromeda, look Halo, look at Paper Mario Color Splashand look at Star Fox Zero... there is a clear pattern of the quality of games decreasing by an absolutely ridiculous substantial amount once the original team is gone. I don't know about you but I don't just buy games for name alone and completely ignore all logic. This has nothing to do with Stealth gameplay so if they're just going to have an online multiplayer zombie shoot em up count me out that's not why I play Metal Gear Solid and I have no interest in buying a game not made by the original team that is not even the same as genre.
The fact that the original Metal Gear Solid creators are not part of the project is enough to completely ignore this series
Just sounds like bias to me i dont think a game needs the orginal team many games today prove you wrong. I dont jump bandwagons to hate stuff i play games im a gamer and if its a good game i will play it period dont care about blind loyalty or gameing politics
Worst game I played at gamescom this year, even waited a hour to play that turd.
Day one purchase if they change the name, This is not metal gear
Its clearly tagged as a spin off. Its metal gear revengence all over again will get tons of blind hate until good reviews drown out the blind hate abd the its not a real metal gear game crap
Reviews don't alwayd drown out blind hate. Look at Mass Effect Andromeda. Aside from the facial animations it was a solid game. Story could have been better too. But the game itself ran beautifully, had good graphics, a fantastic combat system. Yet hear we are only 3 or 4 months out and they already dropped support for it because people destroyed its reputation before it even released. It had good reviews from the majority of reviewers, but that didn't save it.
Buubuuut it's a zombie game slapped with a futuristic skin on it.
Maybe but i think Metal gear survive is in a better spot its not a sequel and nothing really to do with the established characters while mass effect A: had big shoes to fill i think metal gear survive is the opposite its a clean slate its not trying to 1up metal gear v or go near it its doing its own thing
That is all these butthurt Kojima dick sucking fanboys do these days bitch and moan. Look too all the people who won't buy this game because of Kojima then do one, and let us people who just want to play good games enjoy it.
Honestly, the fact that it's Metal Gear actually makes me NOT want to play this game. If it were an original title, I would definitely give it a shot.
It seems like theres a few people like you, which i truly dont understand.... This is a great piece for the "stupid test" though. People choosing not to buy a game, not because of gameplay or microtransactions, but because it has "metal gear" in it and its a bit different than the other "metal gears"...... So on some articles we get people saying COD doesnt ever change etc. But here we have a game changing a bit, and people making "boycott statements" because of its name. I mean theres also the possibility theyre super kojima fans which also blows my mind, ive never supported a guy so strongly i block purchasing things but whatever. I sincerely hope you reconsider your stance sir, not because the game is good (idk), but because its a moronic stance to take .
So it's moronic to want an original title rather than leech off the name Metal Gear?
I think it's just the fact that they're obviously just using the Metal Gear name to get the game more publicity that's pissing everyone off. And in a way, I agree. It's just as moronic out of Konami to use the Metal Gear name as there was always going to be a backlash.
No not to WANT a title, but to not buy a game because it's name... What if its GOTY or even just Good-Great? What is the rationalization for that feeling? Pride? Either way i guess you're right its not moronic, just childish. *I dont want that cheeseburger its not in the mcdonalds box* Did people care about Halo or Gears or Mass Effect? Are those that vastly different of a situation?
100% Agree with you.
Of course it would be good. Those gameplay mechanics were made by kojima But the story on the other hand......
Journalists already licking Konamis ass Thought so...
Or, y'know, it might not be as bad as everyone wants it to be?
Not particularly surprised. Does it do anything to expand on the mechanics and standards set forth by Metal Gear Solid V? Probably not, so if the gameplay there was great, a copy and paste of that would work well. But as big of a fan as I am of the series, I'm skipping Survive. Not into MGO too much, the narrative sounds pretty weak, the gameplay seems familiar enough that I don't need to spend any time buying into it again, I expect MTs to be in full force, and I just don't like Konami. Even Arc System Works beat them at their own franchise (their version of Contra, Hard Corps Uprising) so I have little faith in their ability to deliver long term without the original lead (Castlevania, anyone?)
Might buy only because MGSV gameplay is so good and I never tried MGO
This game will be hot garbage on release
Make Metal Gear Great Again.
A Metal Gear game without Kojima's name on it... I might buy it after a 70% price drop. I don't want to support Konami that much with my money.
lel this not metal gear without kojima xDDDDDDDDDDDDD even though most other people like me that believe this have never played a mgs other then 5 xdd
This sounds like a regurgitated article, I swore I read this 'Poor hype attempt' kind of article a few months ago....
Very disappointed with this. Never thought it looked any good. As a huge MG fan I tried to be optimistic but I just can't. I assume Konami wants to squeeze as much as they can out of the amazing Fox engine. They probably put a ton of money into it. You know they're probably already making MGS6 or some other MG spinoff with a slightly upgraded version of Fox. I'll wait for Kojima. Bring on Death Stranding
See you in 2020
When you realize kojima fanboys are more salty then kojima
Give the game a chance people didn't like, mgsr when it was reveal and we saw how awesome that game was. They need to make a metal gear solid rising 2 asap
Everything I've seen about it suggests that it's going to be a stinker.
Of course, it will be fun it's a Zombie game! but do you know why everyone including me is pissed off on this? Because MGS is a series known for its amazing storytelling and how the story connects throughout the series. And now all of a sudden they are introducing freaking ZOMBIES! that's just non-sensical.
Yeah like the zombies in pretty much the last few Metal Gear games. Oh sorry they can't be Zombies because Kojima has not called them that its all to do with nano crap or parasite stuff. But at the end of the day they are just another version of a ZOMBIE.
Rather spend the money on a game that devs worked on with their hearts.
Don't care. Konami.
F*** Konami. ... I'll leave now.
