Well, this certainly is a long shot, but let's take a look anyway. Just moments ago (April 20) this video (also embedded for convenience) emerged on the net under the YouTube channel moniker "OnigawaraV," hinting at... something.
Wow! i really hope this is true.
war has changed...
It's no longer about nations, ideologies or ethnicity.
It's an endless series of proxy battles...
Are you guys sure, I think it is Steven Hawking, idk about you guys
fought by mercenaries and machines... :)
Don't people remember that it was an extremely obvious April fools joke that he wasn't?
No, war never changes... Wait. You're right. War has changed.
You guys need something?
So, we was trolled... about a troll..? o_o
When are we not getting trolled by Kojima? O.o
I said that when all th news about him not playing snake came out It's just Kojima p,aging with us or trolling us like PP at GTTV
Many people including David Hayter were shocked at the fact he wouldn't be voicing Snake, but kept Japanese voice actor reprising the role. This shows again how Kojima is a egotistical asshole that only thinks of himself. I am sure the fan outcry is forcing him to reconsider his original decision. I am sure in new months you will see he reaches out to Hayter and brings him back. If I were Hayter, I would tell him to kiss my ass. I like the franchise but cant stand the creator. From how he treats his development team to his not giving credit to his inspiration for the game. Saying it was mere coincidence with resemblance to Escape from New York or Kurt Russell @IrishGuy It wasn't an April Fools joke because it was announced before April Fools(March 27, 2013). Hayter tweeted it on that day but the announcement came before that date. No one believes it was and this wouldn't be said 20 days later if it was conceived as an AF joke. You should really read these things for yourself instead of looking like sheep. Source: Gameinfomer.com reported it 4 days before Hayter thanked his fans on April 1st.
Always knew it would be Samuel L Jackson
Otacon: Snake, I've managed to secure the drop-off point for the Mk.2. Snake: Muthafucka, wot chu sayin?
Im tired of these mothafukin snakes on this mothafuckin Game!
I'm tired of all these mother lovin' snakes on this Monday to Friday plane! Idk.... :(
Snakes on a mutha fu**'n plane
I don't know either, Heisenburger. I just don't know.
@Heisenberger I heard a slightly seperate edit version watching the movie on tv. he said in it. "iVe had it with these monkey fighting snakes on this monday to friday plane". i couldnt stop laughing for 5 minutes when i heard it on tv! lol
My guess was Bill Cosby, but I think you're right.
i had rilf harris down to play the new snakes...seens kojima like nothing more then pissing people off.
Yes please, David Hayter is Snake.
Why change Hayter? Seriously... :/ After this long Kojima changes VA in possibly the last MGS game? It makes no sense. I really hope Kojima and David are trolling us. Heck Solid Snake is called David!! Hayter & Snake are perfect for each other.
Well, Kojima said that his reason has something to do with a "fresh start" or something... Meaning, he wanted to start things fresh in every aspect of the game, including its characters. Only thing that doesn't make a lick of sense with that mindset, is that the Japanese VA for Snake is staying the same... So it most likely IS just an elaborate troll. Hopefully... There just isn't anyone else who I can see playing Snake as well as Hayter...
Not to mention the voice of Kazuhira Miller is also the same.
Most likely David, can't wait! :D
OMG Nolan North!!!! /s
OMG Mr Bubbles!!!!!!!!
Wouldn't be the same without him as snake.
Please be Dave Hayter. That is all.
this is just a fan-made crap.. really sad to see these thing getting approved on n4g
people need something in what to believe. let them believe.
It was the video MGS fans deserve but no one needs right now. So we'll watch it. Because the video can take it. Because Hayter's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. The right Snake.
Too much dark knight I guess lol
I want another game about Solid Snake, using the original voice. I don't care if it's another sequel or a bunch of prequels. My interest is in the soldier, who was cloned from big boss, and suffered. I'm up for a PS4 version of the classic NES game titled Metal Gear. That's a start to win back my interest in the series. MGS V is acceptable but I still want that old snake moreso than a story about Big Boss. That is what I want.
You mean the MSX 2 one? you know the Real Metal gear Game not the knockoff
I wasn't aware of the original. Nice info. In general a rerelease of the original story involving Solid Snakes infiltration of Outer Heaven. The beginning... "The player's character is Solid Snake, a rookie member of the fictional special forces group FOXHOUND sent on his first mission. He is assisted via radio by his commanding officer Big Boss, who offers information about mission objectives and items; as well as a local Resistance movement composed of Schneider, who provides the locations of important items; Diane, who provides information on how to defeat enemy bosses; and Jennifer, who assists Snake as an inside agent. Among the prisoners Snake rescues includes Grey Fox (Gray Fox in the later versions), a FOXHOUND agent who was captured during a previous mission; Dr. Pettrovich (Dr. Pettrovich Madnar in later releases), the scientist who designed the Metal Gear weapon; and his daughter Ellen, who was kidnapped along with him." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
But that's the point though, this game, and future games lead up to the events of the original metal gear game, hopefully we'll see a remake of it.
After watching the video, I have no idea how the author came to the conclusion that Hayter will return. Can someone explain?
I think it's going to be Michael Biehn. He's the one who we thought we were playing from the very beginning because his likeness was portrayed on the front of Metal Gear for NES. He's also an actor and has voiced video games.
I stuck with it being him the entire time. If what Kojima said was true at all, then why hire the same actor for the Japanese one? Especially when Kojima constantly says he loves working with Hayter.
Kojima is also a good liar.
well i'm looking right at it
I really hope it's him!
You guys got it all wrong... Title is misleading because when he mentions "Look Closer Detectives" he is clearly referring to 24's Jack Bauer character, so in other words its Kiefer Sutherland as "We all knew from the start" He also did voice in computer animated movies such as "Monsters vs Aliens", "The Wild" and more :) Still this doesn't mean that Kiefer is the new voice actor for snake... We'll have to just wait and see, although in the gameplay demonstration Kiefer's voice character revealed himself as Ishmael.
Isn't Kiefer Sutherland a possibility? The voice of your companion in the hospital scenes from the trailer is almost certainly him, he's been in a lot of Hollywood films and he's voiced two games (24 and COD: WAW) EDIT: Just seen the above comment, haha.
Games have changed. It's no longer about campaigns, stories, or authenticity. It has become an endless series of proxy battles fought by allies and foes. Online - and its consumption of time- has become a well-oiled machine. Games have changed. ID-tagged gamers carry ID-tagged accounts, use ID-tagged gear. Season passes inside their games enhance and regulate their abilities. Account control. Information control. Behavior control. Achievement control. Everything is monitored and kept under control. Games have changed. The age of gaming has become the age of control... All in the name of averting pirates from tools of mass distribution. And he who controls access... controls its history. Games have changed. When gaming is under total control... Account loss becomes routine.
Freaking Awesome Bubble Up for Funny! XD
I'm starting to believe the Kojima that was interviewed and said that David wasn't a returning voice actor was a hologram by Arsenal Gear........
Kojima and Hayter sure are master trolls if this does indeed hold true.
What? You mean David Hayter not being in Metal Gear Solid 5 and all this hubbub around it and the attention that it has caused (not to mention the endless petitions) was all just a lie? Why, I am so shocked! However could this have happened?
The guy said he's been in computer animated movies. Hayter has not been in any computer animated movies. It's like people are just hearing what they want yo hear and blocking out the rest.
Howl's Moving Castle? Yu Yu Hakusho: The Movie? 2 secs on Wikipedia would have told you that...
I doubt that movie constitutes as a computer animated movie, it's mainly hand drawn with touch ups with a computer. When someone says computer animated, they think of something like a pixar movie with 3d models. Not saying what you said isn't true, knowing Kojima, he might use that technicality as a way to trick people, but don't get your hopes up.
I hate semantic arguments :P Yeh, this looks like a fan-made video and yet I'm still hopeful that Hayter will be in the game! Unlikely though.
if it is not hayter at this point, i am going to be mad. If they were going to drop a bomshell like they did, why fuck around with us and lead us to believe he may still come back? I am going to play MGSV whether hayter is snake or not, but kojima is seriously playing with our emotions here.
For attention, obviously. They've been doing it for years, what else do you expect at this point? I find it bizarre people are actually surprised by stuff like this any more.
It's not David Hayter. It's Richard Doyle.
i hope its hayter that voice is as iconic as it gets
Gloves either hide tattoos or skin color, otherwise they are superfluous.
What if the video has nothing to do with the game? Snaaaake?
Hype's a helluva drug.
