THIS IS NOT A DRILL
WE ARE ENTERING A NEW DIMENSION OF RUSE
EVERYTHING THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN
I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S REAL ANYMORE
HE LITERALLY TWEETED HEADLESS SNAKES
IS THE CHICO / QUIET HEAD TRANSPLANT THEORY LEGIT?
We don't know if the lawsuit is real
The ingame character is a literal 1 to 1 copy of a surgeon doing head transplants
Now kojima tweeted images of snake without a head
This entire thing might as well be a MGS2-level ruse
>Stupid Lawyers don't know about my ruse! #YOLO #SWAG #QUIETPUSSY
INGAME CHARACTER 1:1 COPY OF HEAD TRANSPLANT SURGEON
SAID SURGEON IS CLAIMING TO "SUE" KONAMI
IMAGE OF HEADLESS SNAKES RETWEET BY KOJIMA
JOURNALIST TOLD FANS THAT WE SHOULD STAY TUNED
>To all metal gear fans: I…..yeah…i'd stay tuned ^_*
this is beyond MGS2. MGS2 was 'you wanted a sequel, here have exactly what you wanted plus an examination of why this actually kind of sucks' and everyone missed the point because 'omg so random'. plus prescient sociopolitcal commentary, but that's hardly unique or difficult (protip: "shit's gonna suck but people will persist anyway" = you are now nostradamus).
This is literally "surprise MGSV was my plot to fuel vidya money into hard science/medical research that actually matters. the game details both this specific research i've funded, and the larger themes of how we win up criminally misusing our resources"
>tfw Phantom Pain Big Boss isn't actually Big Boss because of this head transplant 'le clever tweest' Kojima is pulling
>tfw David Hayter is actually in the game after all and Kiefer Sutherland is just Grey Fox
the distribution of the demo is ending, which means they're puling the demo off of psn.
This could mean news is comming out, videos, etc.
Or my fear of silent hill dying again happening thanks to konami again.
I CANT TAKE THIS ANYMORE. THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR
GET A BETTER WAIFU. NOBODY LIKES BACONFACE
>mfw country main news network broadcasted the news about the head transplant
>mfw the entire country saw that shit as legit news
>mfw it turns out it was a ruse from Kojima
>mfw Kojima fooled entire countries

It's a photo showing the completion of the newest figure
everyone calm the fuck down
>Sue over using his likeness
I thought everything in the world always had the disclamer "THIS IS A WORK OF FICTION ALL LIKENESS OF PERSONS OR PLACES ARE NOT RELATED IN ANY WAY"
I find it hard to believe Kojima would forget to do that. Confirmed for nothing happening, Kotaku is trying to remain relevant in the world and only embarrassing themselves.
dude, he retweeted the entire set
I feel like you guys are overestimating Kojima's ruse ability.
Like, he only did a legitimate ruse ONCE, (MGS2), and everyone fucking hated that. And that was 15 years ago.
You guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment. There are only two ways this can end;
>Solid ruse, but either everyone already guessed it, or it's not as amazing as the internet wants it to be, either way, 0/10, total bullshit
>No ruse, 0/10, massive disappointment.
There is currently no way anything Kojima actually has planned can possibly live up to the expectations you guys are setting up for yourselves.
>Big Boss doesn't have a cybernetic hand in other MGS's because he's using another body.
>V is different from BB in every way because he's actually SolidVs.
You people are setting yourselves up for so much fucking disappointment when none of this comes true. I feel sorry that you are going to ruin your first playthrough when you over examine every cutscene waiting for your headcanon to come true.
guys im out of the loop
cant someone tell me what this means
>Kojima getting fired
>the head of Metal Gear is being removed
You wouldn't even begin to understand. You should have, like some of us, been following this since the beginning back at vga2010 phantom pain reveal by Joakim Mogren's Moby dick studio. Start there.
Snakes head on Medics body.
Human head transplants are the weapon to surpass Metal Gear.
We are all piloting our very own Metal Gears Every Metal Gear has a spooky skeleton inside of it.
on the old kojima station english podcast they talked about him, he was a Swedish model who was apparently very handsome but due to the bandages they couldn't utilize it
it also explains why he couldn't act and plays into Kojima coming out at GDC with his "head" on
can we get a ruise cruise recap
>>Announcement by fake company Moby Dick Studio
>>Geoff revealed that Kojima had planned the MGSV ruse for over 18 months
>>Hayter no longer in
>>>OR IS HE???
>>Hayter sound files found in GZ
>>Kojima getting "fired"
>>Suddenly somebody realizes that ingame doctor looks 1:1 like real life HEAD TRANSPLANT surgeon, down to the glasses and behavior
>>Surgeon "SUES" konami
>>Kojima tweets headless snake
what did I miss
HE WAS RETWEETING A NEW LINE OF FINISHED FIGURES
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE
>Kojima/Konami says they based him off some actor
They had to, isn't the whole thing about the FOX engine is that you can scan people and put them in the game? The doctor has no case... UNLESS HE WAS RUSING!!!!!!!
>people actually thinking that kojima getting fired was a ruse
>people actually believe konami would risk such a thing with its consumers in an event that could backfire drastically just for a fucking joke
>BIG BOSS IS IN A COMA, MILLER HAS NO BODY ANY MORE
>MILLER'S HEAD IS ATTACHED TO BIG BOSS' BODY
>BIG BOSS GETS A NEW CYBORG PROTOTYPE BODY CODENAMED METAL GEAR
YOU KNOW I'M 100% RIGHT PROVE ME WRONG FAGS
He sure had a wicked recovery after 9 YEARS in a coma.
MG1 - Mr. X, the leader of Outer Heaven, is actually your commanding officer Big Boss.
MG2 - Big Boss survived, Gray Fox is working for him
MGS1 - Gray Fox survived, Naomi is his sister, FOXDIE, Liquid being the superior clone, another clone being the President, Ocelot working for President Solidus
MGS2 - EVERYTHING
MGS3 - Boss' defection being fake, EVA being a Chinese spy, Ocelot working for the CIA, Ocelot being the son of the Boss and Sorrow
MGS4 - Ocelot faking Liquid persona, RATPATROL 1 and Drebin being Patriot agents, Big Boss being alive again, FOXDIE not turning Snake into a WMD, probably forgetting a bunch of stuff
MGSPW - Kaz and Paz working with/for CIPHER
for anyone who tries to say "huur the series doesn't have ruses outside MGS2!!!"
>Most recently, a doctor had a TEDx talk about human head transplant
>Phantom Pain reveal trailer had a doctor that looks just like him
>Kojima stated that, MGSV deals with 'taboo' elements. Many thought that meant rape (most likely) and child soldiers (possibly killing children) might be in the game
>head transplant is already taboo enough irl
>Kojima also stated that, if he failed, he'll leave the industry
>Konami fires Kojima
>said doctor is suing Kojima and possibly Konami
Even if there is no ruse by god I love the 23 enigma culture of the fanbase. So fun.
>Big Boss never actually killed anyone if you play correctly
This "V" motherfucker kills his own men, children, civilians, slaves, soldiers...
it's a really fun unique thing, i can't understand the spergs who want to try and ruin that. NO YOU MUST TREAT THIS SERIES AND THE INFORMATION HOW *I* SAY YOU'RE ALLOWED TO
I get it guys, Big Boss is not faking his death to escape Zero and the patriots. He is faking his life.
Not his fault.
Also he regrets killing fucking Volgin so much he literally sees him as a burning demon and follows in his footsteps.
REQUESTING THE INTERVIEW WITH GEOFF WHERE HE REVEALED THAT KOJIMA HAD PLANNED THE MGSV RUSE FOR 2 YEARS
HE SHOWED GEOFF HIS PLAN AND PREDICTION OF UNFOLDING EVENTS
AFTER GEOFF READ THROUGH IT HE BURNED THE PAPER
HE'S A LEGIT RUSEMEISTER
Well, I don't know about the other Anon, but all I was referencing was the fact that, yeah, you do end up inevitably shooting the Boss.
Other than that, you're right about being able to get by without killing anyone else.
NO, JUST NO, NO
I'M GETTING LEGIT SCARED NOW
i always said this new mofo looked younger than BB.
IT WAS RIGHT FUCKING IN FRONT OF US THE WHOLE TIME
The head lives for a good 30 seconds after decapitation, based on experiments with guillotines and prisoners.
In a controlled hospital setting with modern technology, it's entirely possible this could be prolonged several minutes, enough time to hook the head up to the new body, with nano-machines making the connection.
man, you gotta put some effort in.
>Hayter still isn't in the game
>he still won't stop tweeting about mgs5 almost 3 years after the announcement that he isn't in
you people are pathetic. MGS has always been a sub par weeb franchise. Who the fuck cares, get over it.
he's done it
he's finally broken me
>tfw we get a new character in smash
>with snake's brawl moveset
>V has Green Eyes
>BB has Blue Eyes
>V looks younger than BB during GZ
>V has all these scars
>BB has little to no scars in other games
>V kills indiscriminately
>BB is nonlethal
>V is shown to have intact eye in Xrays
>BB had his eye fucked up
>V is jacked as fuck has great motor skill.
>BB's body was ruined during the 9 year coma, never shown actually fighting after the events of TPP
>tries to be pretty western
>revengance is literally about a anime styled samurai running around killing ppl with a sword just like an anime
MGSfanboy pls go be a cuck somewhere else.
>Ishmael is voiced by Keifer
>you can't see his face
>the doctor on the helicopter is also voiced by Keifer
>messing with the camera on the PC version reveals that he is also modeled after Keifer
what if 9/11 was just an elaborate marketing scheme for MGS2?
Aren't we still worried about how Kojima got kicked off the dev team and had his name completely wiped from all promotional material?
it's part of the ruse
we see this physically when Skull Face erases the XOF markings and you do the same in Deja Vu with the rifle with the same light attached
this is also a meta-embodiment of Zero and Big Boss' relationship where Zero takes eveyrthing he works for and engineers falsehoods about him
Stop the Earth.
I want to get off.
>In some German versions of the headless horseman, he seeks out the perpetrators of capital crimes. In others, he has a pack of black hounds with tongues of fire.
>pack of hounds
Dude, a nanometer is 1x10^-9 meters and the smallest molecule is bigger than 1x10^-10 meters. Every reference about 'nanomachines' basically boils down to the manipulation of individual molecules, not actual tiny robots. You could say they've been around for a while.
>mfw Kojima was not fired from Konami
>Kojima is now the
>He's also the pioneer of a head transplant procedure he calls "HEAVEN" (an acronym for "head anastomosis venture").
is this the real life
Guys, this is what happenes.
Big Boss and some grunt soldier switch bodies while Big Boss is in a coma. Big Boss get's this busted up fellas body, which is why he's missing an arm and is all floppy in the hospital, and this other dude gets Big Boss's body.
It turns out, just like with Liquid though, Big Boss's former body starts taking over this grunt's mind, who as it turns out, is none other than Ishmael. We first see him in bandages because he probably slashed up his face, when he looked in the mirror and saw someone he didn't recognize staring back at him (he thinks he's Big Boss, which is also why he does the Big Boss voice perfectly).
>Kojima has had the entire plot of the Metal Gear series planned since the 1980's and has been organizing everything related to it through marketing stunts of ruse cruises ever since
The horn is added later to Big Boss body to stop Ishmael's body from trying to take over Big Boss's mind, and a sort of lightning rod for spirits and such, but it can only do so much, which is why Big Boss looks like he's kind of losing it over the story (Ishmael has already lost it at this point).
>You cant copyright a medical procedure
You don't know a lot about the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Phantom pain sensations are described as perceptions that an individual experiences relating to a limb or an organ that is not physically part of the body.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
The real head transplant surgeon wrote a book about phantom pain
>go to the store
>purchase my copy of The Phantom Pain
>get home and open case
>case is empty
>case turns to dust
>it was all a dream
>Painful supernumerary phantom arm following motor cortex stimulation for central poststroke pain
>by Sergio Canavero, M.D.
does it ever end
I haven't been following this closely, but this is totally a ruse. The guy's way too over the top and it's TedX, which is basically open to anyone. Also his talk his basically gibberish, and he really emphasizes "I welcome you to heaven" out of nowhere.
Kojima's ingame model in Ground Zeroes is exactly like Snake's but with his head on Snake's body instead.
I'm missing one crucial point none of you have bothered to answer
WHY WOULD YOU TRANSFER BIG BOSS TO A BODY WITH NO FUCKING ARM??????????????????????????????????
Hootan has pin-pointed a problem that even the most perfectly performed head transplant procedure cannot mitigate - we have literally no idea what this will do to Spiridonov’s mind. There’s no telling what the transplant - and all the new connections and foreign chemicals that his head and brain will have to suddenly deal with - will do to Spiridonov’s psyche, but as Hootan puts it rather chillingly, it "could result in a hitherto never experienced level and quality of insanity".
>"could result in a hitherto never experienced level and quality of insanity".
>POST YOUR FACE WHEN YOU GOT ON THE RUSE CRUISE AND IT STARTED ITS COURSE WITHOUT WARNING
Naked Snake switched his head & Body with one of his clones, Solid Snake.
Solid Snake's advanced aging between MGS 2 & 4 isn't due to nanomachines, it was the nanomachines keeping his body YOUNG.
THAT'S WHY HE HALLUCINATES AND DOES CRAZY EVIL SHIT.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHATS GOING ON
Look, I like MGSV theories as much as the next guy, but it's too far fetched for a respected neurosurgeon with over 20 years of research to be a part of a viral marketing scheme for Kojima.
>Volgin has his own figurine
>the "horn" actually grows and migrates as the game progresses
>the was no shrapnel in his head when he was hospitalized
>never experienced level and quality of insanity
when's the last time you heard of cutting edge medical research being performed in Russia?
He'd be living in a Western country if he was the real deal and he wouldn't talk and act like a cartoon character.
>yfw not even alcohol can save you for Kojima's ruse cruise
I WANT OFF THE RIDE OFF
That was a bit odd, but he killed the boss and threw away her philosophy in Peace Walker.
>I'm already a demon
>Kid killing looks like editing to me, I don't see him killing kids in cages because they hand him diamonds
>Never seen him kill a civilian
He very clearly kills his own guy in the trailer though, it's a very odd moment considering there's only been 1 required kill since MGS2.
WHAT IF WHAT WE SEE WITH THE FLAMING HORSE AND VOLGIN IS ACTUALLY WHAT SNAKE IS HALLUCINATING DURING THE TRANSPLANT
it's part of the question
take away everything from Snake, leave him in a crippled body - can he still rise up and become Big Boss again, or has the legend finally outlived the man? is it the mind/soul or the body (both physical and a body of work i.e. his PMCs) that makes him such a great soldier?
The actual biggest ruses are government coverups but this one's pretty big.
>Finish Metal Gear Solid V
>Kojima thanks you for playing his final game, and then in the most sincere voice ever from a game dev, he thanks you by your first name.
>Go online to see if anyone else is talking about this technology that knows you
>No one knows who Kojima is
>All records of a man named Hideo Kojima are unlisted on google
>Go to play MGS V again
>The game is gone, as are all the files.
>But then you notice something
>On your desk you find a small part of a watch. A tiny, flat, metal gear, and scratched on it are the words "Thank you"
HOW WILL THIS END /v/ I NEED TO KNOW
>your entire life has been part of an ARG for MGSV
>tfw Kojima did it
>he planned it and has been following it for 20 years
>all the games, all this time, it all lead to this
>he was just waiting for his master plan to go into it's last phase
>he created the biggest ruse of all time
The man rused so hard that he rused himself out of existence. Bravo Kojima, you brilliant man.
