It's official now. May 5th is the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
For too long I have shared this date with the spics.
We're receiving a .gif from the future at that same day.
When the fuck can I preorder the collectors edition?
>V - V - 201V
Someone post that CLASS OF II0IV picture.
Nobody but americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
It's not even Mexico's Independence Day.. that's September 16th.
Cinco de Mayo is just the mexican victory over a battle with the French. People just use it as an excuse to drink on the summer.

That is not how you use roman numerals, kids.

It wont stop hurting
Check this out.
"I am sorry but there is simply no way this is possible.
This isn't me being a pessimist this is looking at the entirety of Hideo Kojima's career in videogames and his track record.
Hideo Kojima has in the vast majority of situations fails to meet original release date.
He is also one of the few videogame developers who more often than not EXCEEDS expectations instead of delivering an underwhelming experience.
These two greatly go together.
He releases the game when it is ready. CD Projekt RED and others ADOPT HIS EXAMPLE. Why do I say this? Though delays like this are practically the status quo now. They weren't 20 years ago.
Whenever this game gets an actual legitimate release date expect it to get delayed about 3 months to a year.
This game will not disappoint it just won't. Again not fanboyism here I am going off of the entirety of Hideo Kojima's track record here. He has only released a game THAT HE HIMSELF developed subpar ONCE. Even in that situation it wasn't a bad game it just wasn't as good as everyone wanted it to be. Zone of the Enders. That is his sole blemish in his entire developing career. I enjoy the game but it is far from a masterpiece. ..." 1/2
"There are additional reasons. Japan has never announced a game's release date and it is 2 months away. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED. The Japanese game industry is struggling right now I love their games don't get me wrong but they just don't sell as well as the mobile games in Japan right now. 3DS and Vita both do well but are obliterated by mobile. So when a game this big is in development there is no way in hell they are not going to release a release date AT LEAST 6 months away from release. It is not going to happen there is zero chance of this happening. I am dying to play this game I love this series but understand that Kojima is one of the few developers in the world who will straight out ignore publisher demands and actually has the reputation and clout in the industry to get away with it.
I genuinely believe the absolute earliest we can hope to receive this game is fall of this year. Not being a dick that is my honest guess. Having said that I would not at all be surprised to see it get a summer 2015 "release date" then a month before hand be pushed to the fall holiday release window and then get delayed AGAIN To its final release in Spring or Summer of 2016.
Though I would much rather get it in the fall of this year let Kojima make the damn game. He is immune to whining about his release dates he has rarely ever released a game on time and usually exceeds your expectations. Deal with it."
It's like he is just mocking us at this point.

I don't even need to continue no fanfic tier shit story in MGS even compares.
This is horse-shit.
every single person will use this holy shit you're fucking gay bro, I bet you listen to gay ass music like megadeth and think you're the toughest fucking shit in your trench coat
When I first played GZ I tought it was shitty and just a demo, once I played it deep I admired the masterpiece I had the pleasure to play. What I mean is, Kojima might do different things, but none of them will ever fail to its purpose of being epic.

It's like you faggots want a social life.
tl;dr uni wasn't that helpful, knowledgeable, or worth the money. Only go if schooling is a cheap/free option for you.
I honestly really regret going to Uni but it's one of those everyone forces you to do it. I had some knowledge of programming, and I've learned a lot about html thanks to
fucking myspace. Everybody telling me if you don't go to college you'll never be able to get a job no matter how skilled you are in your field. Then I got a cisco scholarship, nj grant, and a few other things and it adds up. Hey! It's not so bad, it's only $350 a semester, I'm gonna be fucking rolling in cash when I get out!
Then suddenly credits get really fucking expensive in your 3rd and 4th year, that's how they get you. Don't be like me, I had most of my college paid for me and I still owe over $4000. Imagine how much worse it is for other people who are not as fortunate.
Also my friend managed to get into the video games field that he wanted and he got shit grades, never went to university. All he did was fuck around with 3D modeling for years and made a portfolio. I even made the online portfolio for him. It's kind of a huge kick in the nuts, he worked for it, but just it destroyed my perceived notion of the job market.
I wish I lived in a free country, but I'm American.
I don't think you understand, countries like Germany have literally free college. Of course I'm sure it goes elsewhere like you having to pay for it in your taxes.
Pop in is bad accross the board, it's a demo.
Buy the PS4 version if you can, if not whatever you have will do.
The final version will most likely have minimal pop in and be far more polished, remember the console versions are 9 months older than the PC version and the PC version still has absurd pop in.
PS4/Xbone will be 1080p @ 60fps on confirmed high/medium settings for TPP, the versions won't suck too bad.
At least, I think the Xbone version is 1080p
so im playing through mgs2 for the first time and holy fuck they talk so much atm up to escorting emma's little bitch ass around is it worth playing through mgs2 to the end
and not complaing about the talking im just saying some of it is very unnecessary
I've been lurking on ebay for the last few days to get a PS3.
So far, I only played MGS1 (first MGS), a few hours into MGS3 and Peace Walker almost to completion on an emulator.
I want the whole MGS experience, but PS3s are still so damn expensive.
Just got 100% in GZ a few minutes ago.
You run around headshoting left and right as fast as possible. At no point in time did anyone who played MGO2 make a formation and slowly walk down a hallway.
No one in MGO2 ever stood still the way they do and trade shots at each other for as long as they do.
Online shootan games do not play like that ever. Standing still in MGO2 gets you killed instantly.
The only time I was ever still in MGO2 was when I was using a ghilli suit for when I wanted to embarrass people.
I understand what you're talking about. They don't sit still, they don't walk in straight lines. Even behind cover, they wiggle. They do a little jig. They dance, like they got ants in their pants.
If they have even the slightest amount of experience in the game or on the map, you can usually tell where they're going and when they'll get there. You can track movements estimate turns.
The only time this doesn't work is with completely fresh players. The kinds of people who wander aimlessly, and walk to places nobody goes or make sudden stops and directional changes for reasons nobody knows or understands. The naivety of it is impossible to penetrate.
MGO2 was obviously a fast game, but it wasn't about shooting. Get your lvl3 assault rifle skill but a good soldier you kill you with his naked hands. There were so many ways to win a match. I used to play MK2 to disable the enemies instead of killing them so my team could take care of the rest of the match. If you played Survival or a tournament you'd have seen teamwork on its better situation. There was the team and groups inside the team with every member fullfilling a vital part of the mission.
I stayed still in a lot of games and won. Granted my stillness was more about clever stealth when needed if anything, but the point stands.
Too many people forget that stealth is a thing even in MGO, use it to your advantage.
>Took me 1 goddamn minute in google to find a converter.
Do kids seriously not know how roman numerals work today?
Add 1000 (M) + 1000 (M) you got 2000. Add 10 (X) you got 2010. Add 5 (V), you got 2015.
There is no need for roman numerals today, but I feel kids should still be able to know them. It's not hard to learn.
None. I already said there is no need for roman numerals today, but it is still easy enough to be one chapter in 5th grade math.
To think "II0IV" are real roman numerals is shameful.
Roman numerals were used for centuries until western countries finally adapted the Arabic numeral system (what we used today everywhere). Forgetting about them is forgetting a huge chunk of human history.
>these kids are going to graduate this year
>these kids are going to graduate
>mfw a leak said there would be a new trailer on january
>mfw I read the spoilers
Yes, Snake. The Leaker posted some spoilers regarding the plot of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Yes, Snake. I urge you to proceed carefully, spoilers tend to have a negative effect on one's psyche when they are eagerly anticipating a work of fiction.
Considering a PS3 would have been beyond Supercomputer Status back then it would have been pretty damn shocking for them. Remember this was Pixar circa 1984.
They Prime Minister tried to cover up the whole back story, Snake.
>tfw kojima delays tpp one day every time someone asks when the release date is
You should try to avoid spoilers, Snake. It can be hard, but as long as you keep your head down and don't browse forums too much you should be alright.
spoilers make you like a work of fiction better because you expect it to be ruined and it turns out to still be quite good. Although now that you know spoilers make you like a work of fiction more, it will now make you like it less since you are now aware of the phenomenon.
Well his New years post was:
>May 201V be a happy and great year for you!
>pc fags will honestly buy this game, even pre-order it, when they never got to play peace walker let alone snake eater to know what the fuck is going on with the story
This time you guys are literally eating scraps, you should be mad at kojimbo for doing this shit, ok you could emulate those games, but we know 80% of the PC playerbase has a toaster that can barely run league of legends.
>we know 80% of the PC playerbase has a toaster that can barely run league of legends.
What's your point. It's not like those plebs will be buying TPP.
Likely, those buying TPP have already played all the games in the series and those that haven't will just shitpost all day.
Fun fact, more consolefags that started gaming with this generation will buy it without knowing anything about the series. And there are no other MGS games on this gen :^)
>Fun fact, more consolefags that started gaming with this generation will buy it without knowing anything about the series.
They won't even appreciate the story. I wonder what it would be like to jump in to a series years in the making.
>They won't even appreciate the story
Do they ever? Except when they are told to by IGN?
>I wonder what it would be like to jump in to a series years in the making.
They've been doing that forever. You are aware that 90% of the Tomb Raider fanbase hasn't played ANYTHING except the newest one, for example.
omg guys kojima just tweeted the real release date by mistake. I captured it before it was taken down

I can't take it /v/, I have no fucking vidya games now. I'm posting from my phone..what are some good android games and what's the best snes emulator?
Jesus fucking Christ. I feel bad for you, dude, but why didn't you try to explain the situation?
Also call the cops. Just because you live at home doesn't mean they have control over your possessions. Make them reimburse you.
Oh, and space the fuck out when you're at therapy - don't take it seriously, because there's dick all wrong with you, and they'll probably just shit pills down your throat until you feel nothing.
The next few months are good for game releases.
We got GTA:V on the 24th March, then PoE on 26th March. Those two games will last till the 5th May when MGS:TPP is released, then two weeks later on the 19th May GOTY TW3 is released.
Where were you when vidya was saved in 2015?
He's 27 and so attached to a video game character that he replicates a scene of emotional downfall whilst looking in a mirror. He also 'left' the door open. Not only does he need help, at some level he wants it.
To answer your question, yes you are.
>getting upset that all your shit is destroyed is a mental issue
Sure it is m8
nice psychological assessment
Wow, extreme disregard for the personal property of others much? I've worked for everything I've got, and if my parents just up and destroyed that shit because I smeared ash in my face, I'd report it to the police OR break something of equal value.
Kojima knows that if he announces a release date, it will make things worse. I guarantee he's doing a surprise release. If the June date is true, expect a release date within 2 weeks of the E3 trailer.
Konami and Kojima know that the minute that shit goes out, it will make headlines of every major gaming/non-gaming publication so there won't be anyone surprised when they walk into Walmart and see it on the shelves.
niggas need to be lurking more
Who the fuck knows what Kojima's talking about. He's a mystery, a brilliant mystery,
When has it ever been done with a game of this caliber? This is Metal Gear Solid, this isn't Persona or some shit.
Anyone that is interested in MGSV is passionate and hyped as hell.
And how many of those people are going to walk into gamestop and pre-order the game?
Those are people that will walk into the store, see it on the shelves and buy it. Not to mention once it releases, it's all anyone will be talking about for the rest of the year (especially if it releases in the Summer when jackshit comes out for like 4 months).
>once it releases, it's all anyone will be talking about for the rest of the year
Please realize that shit like The Last of Us is many times bigger than MGS these days.
I wish /v/ was a good example of the larger gaming public, but it isn't.
There isn't exactly much coming out in May-September. Hell, we hardly know anything about what's coming out at the end of the year (AC/Rainbow Six/The Division/uh.... Battlefront?)
People are able to use more than one system in their entire lives.
And considering a lot of people bought the Ps2 and MGS3 was one of the most famous games in the system, people who are completely clueless about the story will be a minority.
> people who are completely clueless about the story will be a minority
Have you seen of the comments about MGS TPP?
On foruns, sites, facebook, youtube....lots and lots of people are new to the series and will play TPP without any previous knowledge on the series.
Not to mention people still get Big Boss and Solid Snake confused.
And all the people who keep asking what order to play the series in, but I think that's just bait and shitposters nowadays.
It's quite hard to understand MGS saga due to it's length. Most people don't feel like playing any other MGS games since they basically come from other shooters or just started playing vidyas.
MGS is a somewhat old series now. Many people don't own a Ps3 to play MGS4 and many others consider MGS1 a sore to play or even look at....sure they heard or know about it, but nowadays not that many people played MGS in its entirety and the questions they ask...jesus fuck I'm not even talking about the old "should I play release or chronological order" bait...I mean straight forward retardeness.
I bet she knows about the game going to be released near half year so she saves money.
And another. I could be here all day posting things like this but you get the picture.
I rarely buy a game when it's launched, the last one was Tekken 6, just imagine the release date.
I will pay for a game I trust if I can. They're doing a great job with the game and I want to enjoy it. What's the problem with that?
I care about it, but not enough to buy on day one
But who knows, this is coming out in May. That's pretty much in the start of the summer game drought, so I'll end up getting it no matter what.
>MGS can get proper sequels
>Thief series gets an abortion of a reboot
Life is unfair.
>They're doing a great job with the game and I want to enjoy it.
So you never played GZ at release?
and you call those fuckers "friends"
good day anon...
>buys vidya at launch
You know that's only a problem nowadays right?
Games used to be released as they where, and there was no such thing like "patches" so there was no reason to wait. Also, games barely had price drops like they do today.
>not playing the kickass games before it
It was a buggy mess. Technically, it still is.
No, I never knew this.
Also, I never knew the fact that consoles like NES, SNES and Genesis had re-issues of cartridges due to the fact that somtimes a dev would release a game with some sort of a bug where you couldn't even finish the game and then IF the dev would feel guilty enough they'd make a re-issue of the same game with a fix.
How the fuck was I shitposting? Jesus you're so fuckind deluded.
You're probably focusing on the shooting, you should try taking a break and listening to some cassettes. If you don't know what these are 'cause you're too young I show you here.
>If you don't know what these are 'cause you're too young I show you here.
The epitome of MGS fags.
Funnily enough, I still have my old walkman somewhere around the house with my old Akai VHS player.
I don't know.
You know, I honestly don't have a problem with people liking MGS, but it would be much better if there weren't at least 3 to 4 threads at once everyday on /v/. Even right now I have 3, including this one, MGS threads open.
Don't read them then you fucking idiot. What, you think we're all going to just stop talking about something because you don't like it?
You are both autistic and a monumental cunt. You are a cathedral sized, colossal cunt.
How about, rather than reply, if you dislike the threads so much you just fuck off? Try it. Try fucking off and see if it does not automatically improve your quality of life.
Oh who the fuck am I kidding, you'll reply, you're petty as fuck like that. You autistic cunt.
>Don't read them then you fucking idiot.
Or you know, you could learn to use the fucking catalog and just stay in one thread. Yeah, sure I understand that hype can happen and there can be multiple threads at once, but not for 3 months straight.
>You are both autistic and a monumental cunt. You are a cathedral sized, colossal cunt.
Sounds to me that you're just a fanboy who's very asspained for some reason.
Do you have ANY IDEA who the fuck you're speaking too right now you little cunt? I am a 4chan Janitor and I will fucking report your post to a moderator superior at the DROP OF A FUCKING HAT.
DO NOT fuck with me kid, I will backtrace your IP and fucking end you.
As we fucking speak I am getting my top 4chan agents to hack your PC, nice porn folder kiddo! You sick fuck.
>Record the in game tapes onto an actual tape or multiple tapes

Holy fuck I need to do this when I have a day to do absolutely nothing.

How's this shit happening.
It will be shit. Kojima has done nothing but shit since MGS3.
I saw Hideo Kojima at a grocery store in Tokyo the other day. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, rike you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
I just hope the PC version gets delayed. I can't stand watching what PC players have done to Ground Zeroes.
At least a year should pass before they get to defile Kojima's games.
Nothing beats this for a post-tsunami sum-up
Eh I can deal with the PC community, but not on release. They've single handedly ruined the DaS community and pretty much every other console series that comes to PC, VC being the latest.
I don't give a fuck about them being able to play it, just let them play it when I'm tired of it so I don't have to see the shit they say
>They've single handedly ruined the DaS community
I blame 360 owners for that. Sure PC owners have cheat engines at their disposal, but it was without a doubt in my mind the 360 owners who went full memecon-1 with it.
We gotta keep goin'
DAVID HAYTER IS NUUUUUCLEAAAAAR
>yfw we'll all go nuclear as we play TPP
Either that or we're already demons by the time it comes out
