vulcan raven,sniper wolf,decoy octopus,psycho mantis ALL back with new names
Awesome stuff. I can't wait to fight these guys =D
I must say when this masterpiece arrives people will be like halo? halo3 huh?. now halo is great but metalgear is the king
not only that but also to Use their costumes. just like MGS:SE
specially that crying wolf, looks like he can fly.
Mantis and Wolf are BACK!????? :O
i wounder if snake can pull Dragon from his pocket to kill the new human/robot/alien boss
dude your such a c0ck, obviously a xbox fan boy who seems to get more kicks from spamming ps3 threads than actually playing games! i can wait till the new school season starts so little d1ckh3ad's like you cant waste peoples time anymore!!
oh and when you do get back to school ask about some extra english lessons as yours is wa.nk!!
Well Ali G have fun shooting squid faced aliens. Oh, and lets not forget old alien popes flying around in sheilded chairs. Just swing a hammer at him even though it is like the year 2500.
This is the best news about MGS4 to come out this year
I hope U can download costumes like mgs3.
I like the santa claus and flag face.
Mantis can read motion sensing now, that will be amazin.
I thought I saw them die in MGS1. Guess I'm wrong unless they're cyborgs or something. I wonder what's Mantis' trick this time. Sniper wolf's battle was great until I fought The End in MGS3. Great news though, Kojima sure has a lot of surprises.
No one really dies in a MGS game!:)
Yup, I'm beginning to think that now after this news. Now I think the old Snake that we see in videos of MGS4 is Naked Snake aka "Big Boss" not Solid Snake. That would be the biggest surprise of them all. Heck, while Kojima's at it, why not bring back Grey Fox too so that he and Raiden can have a showdown.
That would be a huge surprise, him being Big Boss. Are they bringing back that guy who died of an apparent heart attack (or something) in MGS1? (I need to play that game again) He as like the best spy or somehting, always looked like someone else.
I wanted to know more about him.
Psycho Mantis awesome i remember putting the pad on the floor then him saying he would control it and make it vibrate and would then predict your future from your game saves and playing style.
Awesome cant wait :D
this game is simply amazing, its soooo far ahead of anything else out there! might end up being the best 3rd person and 1st person of next year!! shame its the last one....... or is it.....?
Lets all hope not!
theme of MGS4 is SENSE
it all makes SENSE(no pun) now
thats a good shout mate! im still not sure what they mean about 'themes' maybe something you can download from PSN that includes MGS wallpaper, logos, sounds etc, i maybe well off the mark but the only 'themes' ive come acrooss before are for nokia mobiles!!
but i still want to see the list of the patriots :)
I'm so hyped for this. Your looking at the biggest Metal Gear fan on N4G. keep the good news coming.
Quoting some posts on PS3 forums (with some tweaks to their posts):
"Original animal rank codenames from MGS + emotional titles from MGS3 = MGS4 boss names"
"vulcan raven......the fury / raging raven
sniper wolf...... the sorrow / crying wolf
psyco mantis.... the pain / screaming mantis
decoy octopus... the joy / laughing octopus "
That's pretty much true !
This news will fuel the MGS hype machine.
One MGS, to rule them all !
Once again, Kojima proves that he's the unrivaled master of futuristic/military/epic games. mass effect can kiss my a## !
Observer what do you mean by your comment...?
I'm not following...
If you notice the pattern in the naming of MGS1 bosses, It's about names mixing military/war names with animal names.
In MGS 3, the boss nicknames related to emotions each
MGS 4, following Kojima's declaration about psychological warfare, brings back the "Animal" bosses of MGS1, but relates an emotion to each, like in MGS 3.
Laughing.....Octopus_____(dec oy octopus + the joy)
Raging.............Raven_____ __(vulcan raven + the fury)
Crying.............Wolf______ __(sniper wolf + the sorrow)
Screaming....Mantis______(psy cho mantis + the fury)
Hope that helped.
Gotcha, thanks dude.... I'm a pretty big MGS fan, but when I read your first comment i guess it was a little to early this morning... LOL
now if someone could just post a link to 'how to learn japanese in 5 minutes' ill be ever so greetfull!!
Someone please help me out. HOW DO WE KNOW ITS THEM?!
Does it say somewhere?
Nevermind. I am an idiot lol
.. they're characters modelled after their concepts, albeit with a sci-fi vibe. And that's cool enough.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I can't wait to fight Mantis !
good times. ;}
These could be re-incarnations or the original characters in Metal Gear form, and the names in the mag are just engrish translations (happens all the time!)
P.S If you don't know what engrish is, visit this website http://www.engrish.com/ very funny
It seems to be an actual, four legged, robot wolf. Check it out.
they all died
i like the idea of them having metal gear implants tho
this is sweet, this is the game i will finally buy a PS3 for
im just hoping the Patriot list doesnt get leaked tho id like to find out who they are when playing the game
To be completely honest, I can see that the people who are trying to ruin these news for us are the usuall suspects.
MGS4 looks like complete sh*t, amirite? *winkwink*
these arent returning characters though , phscyo mantis is a girl this time around, and the rest seem diffrent as well ,im still tired of waiting for this game but i geusse i cant do anything about it
I wonder if these are based off the original characters they're named after and whether they'll use similar but machine-like voices (if they have voices that is). Sounds reasonable that they'd have their DNA since Ocelot/Liquid was at Shadow Moses he would have been able to obtain it from their dead bodies (or blood in Raven's case).
I'm wondering now about the possibility of Big Boss being in this game.
Is there not a translation of the information on the pages?
While you guys are excited I am not going to lie
I am a little intimidated by these bosses. lol
I'm always like that with MGS though, Ever Since MGS1, Because untill you figure out the rythm, MGS bosses will hand your ASS to you on a silver plate, and ask you how it tastes
CANT WAIT FOR THIS GAME
YEAH SUN !!!
Did you mean "All your base are belong to us"? ;)
I hope that we can get more info today. I can't wait to get my hands on this game. If Mantis is back in rare form, I'm going to flip.
I'm ready to fight them. they look awesome with the new technology suits. Technology in MGS4 is really beefed up. IN one srn shot shows a dog like metal gear just sweet!
Castlevania! Muhahahahahahahahaha (-_o) Hurry-up MGS4, I need some AAA games BAD.
Oh man! That's what I'm talking about!!!! Bring it home Kojima!!!!
............................. .............................. I don't know what I meant by that.
Whoa!......the new raven can fly...
I hope they are not reincarnations of the bosses from part 1. The story in part 2 went off the deep end (otacon humping his own mom just wasn’t needed) and to bring them back would be a step in the wrong direction for the story in my opinion. I would like the game to veer back towards the story direction of part one or part 3 rather than the comic book lunacy of part 2 (a vampire named vamp is just pure cheese). That being said the bosses look SICK and I can’t wait to kill them.
this is what im talking about :) yeeeeessss!!!!!! main reason i love metal gear are the bosses. my fav of course psycho mantis. ( i do have a thing for sniper wolf ) lol . damn this game is going to f'n rock man,
well, kojima is keeping his word. Bringing back most of the old faces for the big bang.
360 fanboy/haters.Metal Gear is like a muzzle.
well this is a game that ppl that dont own a PS3 and are 360 only are saying will make them get a ps3!
Personaly i think Snake Eater was the best game in history and by far the best game the PS2 ever put out! God of War is a really close second
I thought they were going to announce something cool, like the Big Daddy from Bioshock was going to be a boss.
Bioshock is so great. Too bad I have to wait until March of next year to play anything exclusive or that hasn't been released 6 months ago for 360 on my PS3 (whats up, PS3's entire library?)
heavenly sword in sept. ratchet and cland in october, and uncharted in nov. just to name the big ones. also, gamestop says killzone 2 next feb.(that comes before march if you don't know) and don't forget UT3 in nov. and haze in dec.- they are timed exclusives. so your post doesn't make much sense.
don't worry about him. He's trying to act "innocent" when it's obvious he's a fanboy of another console.
can we say, ultimate pwnage
I will actually buy a PS 3 when this game is released.
MGS4 and KZ2 next feb. and march? my television will never be shut off for weeks!
I honestly get a bad feeling from this, because as cool as Psycho Mantis would be to fight again, how are they going to top the previous one where you had to change the control-ports, so that he couldn`t read your mind ?
Am i the only one who got a kind of Spiderman 3 feel, where they just cram in too much bosses to please the fans, but turn out to do just the opposite ?
Maybe i`m just scared to face Raven again too, he was frightening...
Absolutely OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!!!!!!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!
this game looks gorgeous. i just wish it wasn't riddled with gorgeous shots of snake's old man butt. ;)
Best boss fight in the history on gaming.
