A new addition to the Metal Gear Solid V experience.
Huh. So Konami's giving us a Metal Gear in a genre nobody asked for instead of the obvious Chapter 3 that everyone wants? Sounds about right.
Still looks better than anything MGO3 has to offer. Edit: As if it doesn't look better :P Damn Kojima fanboys are rabid today, Portable Ops son, was dope!
so true. people want to hate this game because of their fanboyish loyalty to kojima. it's sad.
@Jack nah man people hate it because Zombies is mediocre and you'd be mental to deny that. They should have worked on something more reasonable, like chapter 3.
No JackStraw, oh he of simple mind and olde memory. Nothing to do with fanboyism. Maybe it's because Konami treated Kojima and his development team little shite and tried to scrub him from the metal gear series, the same IP he made infamous and made Konami money. Only for Konami to make glorified gambling machines and a generic coop game using the Metal Gear name. Might at well call metal gear skidmark from this point on.
This'll probably explain a bunch to you Kojima riders. My friends and I lasted two weeks from launch on MGO3, maxed out all classes, we need the skill system, ditch the classes, survival Wednesdays and more tactical maps and throw back maps from MGS4/MGS3/MGS1 and better playable special characters and the point weapon system when you have to earn kills to get new weapons in-game. This new approach to MGO3 was built for non-fans of the series and it has suffered from it, MGS fans are those who play these games long term. Trying to appeal to everyone took away the harsh but reasonable attraction MGO2 most certainly had for us. Or they can release MGO2 on PS4 etc >:) 1080p 60FPS glory! If you actually read through this, here's a virtual cookie, Hayters gonna Hayte ;)
@Twiggy we ain't Kojima ridin mate. No one wanted any Zombie related DLC which costs $30 mind you, we wanted Chapter 3. You know what would've been cool instead of this or MGO? A RDResc online mode, that would've been fucking amazing instead of some remaster of MGO2. Konami fucked up Kojima's franchise, they deserve all the bad they get.
This game looks like garbage, no thanks. Now a MGS3 remake with the pachinko machine's character models? I'd be down for that.
funny all the pseudogamers say "no" and then go on to prove my point. let the hilarity continue.
Metal gear is Kojima, so that makes us Metal gear Fanboys, no shame in that
The reason they used a wormhole as a plot device is so they can import any character in the MG universe...as DLC. Just watch. Add The Boss for $19.99
@jack- it's not MGS thus.... don't care. Co op online? Nope. An easy pass.
Portable Ops was great i enjoyed it a lot as well
Cod Zombies +Metal gear 5 =Metal gear survive ...though i wont judge this right away negatively ..maybe is fun and smthing that doesnt mess with the existing cast
I agree. It didn't look that bad to me but I love zombie games so maybe I'm biased. This is like Metal Gear's take on the zombie genre and it might fill in nicely while I wait for games like Dead Island 2 or the next Left 4 Dead if they ever make it.
It's "Metal Gear Dead island", I totally want!
You're asking for ch 3....how about the real ch 2 instead of the repeat of ch 1 missions but harder with a little story sprinkled over it
So is this DLC or a full game?? Doesn't look tempting as a full game.
"transported through wormholes into an alternate universe, where they’re forced to battle a force of crystalline zombies and, it seems, at least one Metal Gear itself" LOL Are they kidding? A wormhole? ZOMBIES? Wow they've lost it. They've turned MGS into some over the top co-op survival game about the multiplayer experience so they can charge for more MT.
I'm not one to judge a book by its cover(in fact I often give them the benefit of the doubt), but this just from the description sounds horrible. Hopefully I'm wrong.
This is the worst book cover ever.
A Metal Gear *game (Disclaimer: May not actually contain a metal gear)
They know what we want.
Don't think Chapter 3 is gonna happen.
At least Pachinko had sweet character redesigns. This looks nothing like...Metal Gear has done since the 80s. Even MGR and Acid had some connection :/
I know everyone is going to hate on it, but this is a Metal Gear spinofff game where Metal Gear does it's take on the Zombie genre with co op and all. I love zombie games and while this doesn't look like a Metal Gear Solid game, to me it just didn't look that bad, maybe that's just me because I love zombie games but it looked pretty interesting and I'm still waiting for games like Dead Island 2 and Left 4 Dead 3.
This is a new 'multiplayer bro zombie shooter', but in order to make it stand out from the crowd, Konami tied in the MGS franchise. Pure and simple. This game is about $$$, not sticking to any sort of narrative in the overall story. Metal Gear is dead, anything that releases with the name attached will most likely just do so to rake in extra cash. This is Konami. It's all they care about. Fuckin pachinko machines.
You guys can hate all you want but I'm pretty excited for "Metal Gear Dead Island" I think it's a pretty good idea.
That's the thing. I love zombie games too and this game still looks like trash. Friggin portals? None of it made sense and all the characters without saying a single word were extremely cliche in every way. Above that if Activision was like "hey Call of Duty Zombies is now a 30 dollar DLC" everyone would be bashing it galore. But this is Konami and any hate towards it means "oh that's just a kojima fanboy...." really? It looks like garbage.
Well its a spin off. Would you really want them touching proper Metal Gear Solid before they proved they even understand what fans want. Too be honest, this doesnt look bad. It looks interesting, so I am willing to try it out for sure. I just hope people give it a fair chance and not automatically hate on it because Kojima isnt making it. Lets see what these folks can do and what better place to see that then in a spin off. No matter what happens in this game, it isnt MGS proper and thats a good thing.
"Would you really want them touching proper Metal Gear Solid before they proved they even understand what fans want." Hold on, did you just say this? You imply that they understand what the fans wanted by doing a spin off with zombies and having zero addition to the MGS world. lol Instead of using the Fox Engine to create an original zombie game, they're literally stapling the MGS name to move copies, that's all they're doing. Nobody's hating on it because Kojima isn't making it, they're hating on it because this isn't what anyone wanted out of MGS. A proper spin off would be to create new characters and playing parts that we never seen before in the MGS story. I'll even say Metal Gear Rising was a proper spin off and Kojima barely had anything to do with it, but it didn't get anywhere half of the hate this garbage looking spin off is getting. Wormholes, zombies, different timelines in a franchise that was about tactical espionage, war politics, stealth, etc... C'mon, that's like making a Resident Evil game where you catch biological monsters into a Pokecube and go around having battles with other catchers. You're one of the same people that probably thought, "give these MGS pachinko machines a chance!"
no do not touch metal gear at all because it's not konami's vision
They would need to make a proper Metal Gear Solid game in order to prove they understand what fans want. In fact, by making this spin-off they are making clear they don't care about the interests of the community. I agree that we need to see how this turns out, though, but at the same time, come on, it doesn't even look like a decent L4D ripoff.
Looks better than MGO3, now before people get up in arms.. MGSV had random pointless zombies in there too, this looks like a good addition to the bare bones MP MGSV has, Kojima dropped the ball with MGSV, hell he didn't even want to make it. I welcome this, make sure it has it's own trophies and I'll get it. Edit: Open to arguements, if anyone tries to defend MGO3 or anything MGSV MP I'll happily chop you up :P
You are assuming everyone who is not liking this game was a huge fan of MGO3. MGO3 was absolutely terrible yet I think this looks terrible as well, how about that?
You missed a Bullet and a half I'd say, not bad right?
you're the only one that's played MGSV apparently. LOL. the rest of these kids have no fucking clue what they're talking about and are simply hating out of dumb loyalty and immaturity.
What's up your ass dude? Stop being such a wanker
no this looks like a completely different game with metal gear put in the title..they cancelled PT so cancel this garbage because i sure as hell do not want it
Resident Evil Umbrella Corps Retexture
Nothing is that bad. Nothing.
This game is.
Metal left 4 dead
Hey, pretty much, yeah :D Wow, you are a genius !
WHERE IS CHAPTER 3!?
On that Dead Island..together with Kojima and Snatcher.
What chapter 3 ? Oh, you mean the ending to MGSV ? What, you need it ? Too bad, they didn't bother making it, sorry XD
Looks pretty damn good to me. So much that can be done with a great game engine from MGS5, the more they do the better.
HOW DARE YOU BE POSITIVE ABOUT ANYTHING POST-KOJIMA MGSV!!! You're right, looks dope. Especially after the cancer that is MGO3.
How high are you?
Just give us Metal Gear Rising 2
...Never thought I'd hear that.
Please Konami let it rest, don't milk my favorite franchise and destroy it's legacy.
they did already mate. Metal Gear is finished
Actually, this is needed, have you played MGO3? Horrible.
So? Don't play it. I don't know why anyone would attempt to play that when you have Overwatch, or any of the other great online shooters that are available now. Metal Gear has always been special because of its SINGLE PLAYER STORY. All that multiplayer garbage was just tacked on for adhd Call of Duty loving asshats who can't sit still for 5 seconds without shooting at someone else. Because of fans like that, this franchise has been raped. Not like they care though, why would they? Simpleminded idiots like that usually lack empathy of others.
Oh, they will :) Abandon all hope, all who enter here :)
MGSV did destroy the legacy with its stories including chapter 3. Kojima didn't put much effort into awesome boss fight like Previous game, a story that wasn't needed to be told, sacrifice everything for open world and gameplay. Ground Zerous and the Beginning in the hospital in Phantom was the best part of the game and everything else was hype, many scenes in trailers was never part of the game so Kojima lied to the gamers. Both Kojima and Konami are at fault.
Konami: The decline of a series starts now.
It started with MGSIV already.
Eh... IV and V were still good games, regardless of their shortcomings. This does not look like a great game, no matter how you want to swing it. Shameless milking is shameless milking.
Instead of "this", could they just work on Act 3 and Rising 2? I'm no kojima fanboy, but I start to be sick and tired of all this Spin-Off, Square-Enix, Capcom and now Konami. I wish ppl stop to buy all this poop, because thats why they keep on doing this.
Whoa so cool, cant wait to play that one - said noone ever
and i thought Kojima had crazy ideas...
Crazy, but interesting. This is crazy, but absolutely out of context.
Yeah, like inhuman and supernatural elements were always present in Metal Gear, but this is just way out there.
Jeez man, instead of this shitty DLC I want save data slots and difficulty modes.
Wow, they really put a lot of thought into the name.
And at the end it seems more like Metal Gear's Death and not Survive lol
Honestly this looks more mediocre than anything I expected from Konami.
