Hideo Kojima talks about the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection and how MGS 3 is better for series newbies. - PSLS
Anybody else think Eli in the new MGS is Liquid?
Everybody thinks that he is Liquid. But what I find more interesting is that he looks nothing like Snake, he's more like a clone of Miller because they both are identical.
MGS3 is where Kojima simplified "Gameplay", thus making the Great Story more Enjoyable.
"he looks nothing like Snake" If you know your MGS history, Liquid and Solid don't look alike anyway. (slight spoilers) In fact, Liquid wears a Miller disguise throughout MGS1 and fools Snake into thinking Liquid is Miller.
@ dedicatedtogamers Well, if you actually know your MGS history, you will know that Snake looked so much like Liquid in MGS1 that he cut his hair so not to be mistaken as him.
Yes they are almost identical
The amount of proof and hints in the trailer severely indicates that it is Liquid. For you to not assume he's Liquid based on saying he doesn't look like Solid Snake or Big Boss, I REALLY have to ask, had you ever fucking played MGS1? rofl. They don't sound or look alike in terms of hair, course. Maybe he's blonde because Big Boss had some recessive blonde genes that passed down and had a 25% chance to biologically be feasible. Like eyes with BB, Bb and bb in which Big Boss also has blue eyes which are recessive.
Well no one has seen Snake when he was a kid.
e-LI-quid. A youth who curses his fate. (because he think he's the inferior clone) Jackal's teeth necklace. Blonde hair. That same annoying face. Same age. Fits the bible story (Eli and David, which David is the one who will be the King) It's 99% Liquid Snake
I think in MGS1 Liquid sad something about, but father chose me so it has te be liquid 100% for sure.
Speaking of cursed fate http://www.youtube.com/watc...
He's ELI !
Honestly, I'd say it's hard to ignore the small clues that hint towards it. We know that at some point, Punished Snake visits Afghan and we know of Liquid Snake's existing connection to the Middle East. I wouldn't overlook that Solid Snake's name was stated in Metal Gear Solid as David. In the Bible, two sons of "God" are named Eli and David. Kojima seems to like to play around with Western philosophies and culture.
Kojima is telling people to go with MGS3 and Peace Walker because MGS5 (and probably the next one, too) are focusing on the story of Big Boss. MGS3 and Peace Walker contain about 90% of the series' information regarding BB.
I know. That's why I said that.
I have beaten MGS3 like 5-6 times this year for the first time but I just couldn't get into Peace Walker with the crappy "comic like" cut-scenes. Not top mention the small maps and the many loading times between them, it's just too much for me to handle. Snake can't even crouch on this game and the new control set-up was very uncomfortable too. =/ And what pisses me off the most is that if you don't play Peace Walker you'll be completely lost when it comes to the story and characters of MGSV. Like seriously, I have no idea who Paz, Chico or Miller are. Well I know a bit about Miller but nothing about the 2 children.
Yeah, I'm bummed because I couldn't get into Peace Walker either. Because I don't feel as caught up with the series, I think it may be affecting my excitement for Phantom Pain.
man MGS3 is my fav game of all times. All those feels :(
More feels than MGS4? I've played through 2 and 4 and I have the collection. Should give it ago during the summer I guess.
MGS4 has a lot of feels as well especially towards the end but MGS3 has that special feeling to it. Its different its special. Youll love it.
I couldn't play the psp version crazy controls. Made myself get used to the HD version, and I was glad I did. It is probably my 2nd or 3rd best, behind MGS1. The game is awesome and I really didn't want it to end. Once you finally get used to it you'll love it and the co op is excellent too as I actually needed it on one of the bosses and some dude from Japan bailed me out. The story fits and you actually see how Big Boss started building his empire. I even loved the extra ops especially after it looked like too much headache to get into
If you have a Vita you can play it with Dual Sticks. That's what I am doing right now.
I say just play them in order of release. Meaning Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2. Metal Gear Solid, etc. While MGS3 is earlier in terms of timeline, sure, the story evolved over the course of release. Then again, Kojima is the only one that fully understands his convoluted, yet wonderful narrative.
Of course they should play them all, but only MGS3 and PW would be necessary for back story, especially since the rest of the series hasn't happened yet. XXXD But yeah, everybody should play them all!
And when Hideo speaks, I listen.
I stopped listening. Until he gives a release date and some info on the new MGO, i'm done lsitening. I don't like being teased when the game might not even be close to releasing. Plus to much of the plot might get spoiled early.
I still plan to beat out the HD collection before I play the new games. Also have to play the first one.
I'd have to disagree, mgs3 is the best one, you'll only be disappointed every game after if you start with that.
Playing MGS3 first is a good way for people to be disappointed with all the others.
What the hell are you talking about, the game is masterpiece, the story alone is heartbreaking and mindblowing.
I'm saying that starting with the best game in the series will make the hype for the rest of it seem ridiculous
I suppose it's one way to play them, but I'd definitely play them in the order they were released, seems more rewarding and intriging that way.
That's the worst place to start.... you miss references and throw backs and explanation. Kojima? What?
I didn't when I played it first :/
I started at MGS3 first and have been a fan since. You don't miss much references. It's really a story in it's own about master and student.
Strangely, I did play MGS3 first :P
I prefer to play the series in order. But then again I'm not a newbie.
No need to play MGS1, 2, or 4 in this case though because all those events happened later. Play MGS3 and Peace Walker and MGS V before playing MGS1, 2, and 4 then.
Everybody should play thr original. It is a classic and one of the best games of all time.
Thanks Kojima-san. You made it easier for me. I just got MGS HD Collection and I didn't know which to play first and I'm a newbie at MGS series. I don't even know which Snake is which. There is so many of them.
Tried MGS 1,2,3 & I just couldn't get into them,I tried 4 & I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
