In the case of Kojima Productions' upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the game bridges together graphics and gameplay in one mind-blowing experience.
Walking out of the Konami booth at E3 2014, having just seen a 20-minute gameplay demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, one thought kept running through my mind: This game looks like the Metal Gear Solid I was hoping for, but feared would not be delivered.
While Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a console game, the experience actually extends to other devices. In a new walkthrough video for Ground Zeroes, series creator Hideo Kojima discussed the mobile and social features of the game.
The PS3 and PS4 versions of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will include an exclusive mission, Konami announced today. This mission, entitled "Deja Vu," is based on the original Metal Gear Solid from 1998.
The official intro cinematic has been unveiled by Konami Digital Entertainment for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeros or Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The video is a retread of a lot of what we've already seen before with one striking change: It's in English and we finally get to hear Kiefer Sutherland in the iconic role of Big Boss, known here as Punished Snake.
Earlier this week, Rockstar Games entertained many gamers across the world with the firstGrand Theft Auto 5 gameplay footage. Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, however, said he was a bit sad watching it.
Tons of gameplay features for the recently announced Metal Gear Solid V were zipped through during the Microsoft stage presentation for the Xbox One at this year's E3. Keeping it short and contained, the video above gives you a nice look at some of the features for the next-gen Metal Gear title.
During Konami's pre-E3 press conference, the publisher revealed who will be playing Big Boss (aka Naked Snake) in Metal Gear Solid 5. The voice actor is none other than 24 star Kiefer Sutherland.
Nearly 20 minutes of gameplay footage is showcased from the PC version of Battlefield 4 and it looks remarkably good. In the same week we also had Hideo Kojima and the team behind the Fox Engine announce Metal Gear Solid 5 for next generation consoles. And Unity Technology announced that the latest Unity 4 Engine will be made available for the PlayStation 4 later this year.
David Hayter, the long-time voice actor for Big Boss and Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series, is not contributing to the newly announced game Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. In a video interview, designer Hideo Kojima explained why they decided to go with a different voice actor.
The latest episode of "Kojima, Why Can't You Announce Games Like A Normal Human Being?" has drawn to a close. Today he confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are in fact the same game: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
If there's one thing I love, it's when a game developer goes the extra mile to mess with their audience. Take The Phantom Pain, for instance. Revealed during last night's Video Game Awards on Spike, the game is a complete unknown. We know next to nothing about the story. The concept seems like it's coming from deep left field. One of the characters looks like Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series. And, most importantly, the developer Moby Dick Studio doesn't even exist.
Konami just held a 25th anniversary event for Metal Gear out in Japan. As rumored, they announced a new Metal Gear Solid. Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is in development for unknown platforms.
