I was looking through my old posts, and I saw this thread, and remembered the MGSV hype. I miss those days so much, anticipating this game with you guys.
I still put over +300 hours into the game, and re-buying the game on PC recently helped quite a bit too. I love it so much, even what little story is there I liked a lot.
But it's so depressing that we'll never see another great Metal Gear Solid game with Solid Snake or Big Boss again.
Heck, I can't find a single game that I'm even remotely hyped for at all, MGSV was one of the only games I've ever really been hyped for, and I feel like it delivered pretty well (sans the story). I wish another game franchise existed that had such intricate gameplay and fantastic characters like Solid Snake.

There's no reason to believe that Death Stranding won't fill this void. As much as I love MGS. Kojima has been handcuffed by MGS and its lore. He has blatantly stated in the past that he shoe-horned his ideas into MGS games because that was the only way for him to get a big budget for it from Konami. Now the cuffs are off, and there won't be any complaints about continuity or character inconsistencies.

Plus they are using Guerilla's engine. a lot of the groundwork is laid out already. I think people expecting Death Stranding to take more than a few years are mistaken. The only time Kojima has ever taken longer than a few years between games is because he was developing new tech from the ground up (MGS4 and V). 2019, 2020 at the latest.

You know I gotta go back and beat this. I'm about 75% of the way through it. If every stealth game played as good as this I would LOVE the stealth genre. More often then not though I find myself frustrated with the majority of stealth games.

I mean, no one is really expecting this to take more than a few years. Is there anyone expecting this will take, what, a decade? We all know how long it takes to develop a game. I hope.

Does anyone still play MGSV multiplayer? I thought it was okay from what I've played of it, I would've put way more time into it if there was co-op stealth missions you could do.

It's in any way the better game!

Was anyone else confused about Troy Baker's ocelot? How he is seemingly channeling Pat Zimmerman in the cutsenes, but then has a southern drawl in the tapes and radio?

well....I asked him about it at NYCC! and he genuinely didn't know what I was talking about. He was super nice and basically seemed confused by my question, but then said that it was recorded over a very long period of time, and specifically mentioned the cinematics vs. "the motherbase stuff" so i'm not sure if the voice direction was changed and they intended to go back and redo the cinematics? seems like a huge oversight, and it's blatantly obvious to me. but it was cool to confirm that it wasn't something the man himself was congnizant of during development.

Oct 17th - First person to reach 1st in PF Grade AAA+ on the PS3

I managed to finally reach AAA+ on the PS3 and came in 1st and 2nd simultaneously! For those who doubt that Permanent Nukes exist and still think that I am making all this up: do you honestly believe that someone who managed to be the 1st into the top grade with two accounts after 2 years would not be able to see the PF stats of nuke-holders and understand what is really going on? If you think I am making up Permanent Nukes you have to ask yourself one question: Why would I waste so much time on a 'joke' that is not even remotely humorous? What exactly is my endgame?



Anyways, now that AAA+ has been reached on the PS3 and it is the final grade it will fill up with more and more people because there is no higher grade to move into: the top 3 in each group will stay in AAA+. This means that in a few months I will start encountering more and more people in larger and larger groups (eventually up to groups of 16 again). Since I have two accounts I will sometimes see two groups per week and so will likely start encountering more derelict accounts still holding nukes. Hopefully I will encounter many of the ones I have already mentioned in this document so I will be able to confirm whether or not Konami has done anything about fixing this situation. Their weekly nuke-count graphs certainly suggest they have not done anything.

I inquired again about the situation of Permanent Nukes to Konamiís inquiries department nearly a month ago and after they made some initial requests for more information I have not heard anything back. I will try contacting them again next week and see if I can get an update.

^To be fair, I don't think he was doubting you in the least; only questioning what point it served. I would guess he actually believes and give credit to everything you've said, but is just saying, 'it doesn't matter; everyone and Konami has moved on.'

That said, I still play MGS V regularly so at the very least, I've not moved on. I rarely engage in FOBs but there's rarely a week I don't raid Afghanistan or Angola-Zaire, and I'd be lying if I don't hope that somehow, every extra soldier I recruit or 'rank' I gain or PF battles win, somehow helps or contributes in some way to disarmament and 'peace.'

It's this sort of distant carrot that I don't actually expect to be caught, but just the rumour of it -- the unlikely possibility of it -- is enough to give some sliver of meaning to continued play. Like, the original Ashbringer in WoW, reviving Aeris in VII, a Shen Long of SF -- you know it's pointless or futile and not grounded in reality, but you retain this sliver of hope, if only as willing delusions because it gives meaning to playing the game once again for the Nth time. And, to be sure, much of my hundreds of hours are, at best, chasing Diamond Dogs delusions of grandeur.

So, in that context, I appreciate these posts as fuel -- or, if you will, processed fuel /grin -- for said delusions~

After playing MGS 2, I want a Metal Gear Maker with MGS 2 assets, MGS2 is possibly my favourite game of all time with that being said it was highly flawed the game was far too streamlined in it's level design, I can only imagine what a bigger big shell could have been like with more open level design approach, am I on my own with this Metal Gear Gaf ?

Quick question, just how many of the side-ops are available in Chapter 1? The game has a rhythm to it but I honestly don't want to ruin the main-ops by doing to many side-ips because the gameplay can get so repetitive.

Also I only plan on finish Chapter 1 and do Chapter 2 much later but will there be more cutscenes? So far they have been few but presented really well. Also at first I was rinsing through the tapes but there are only unlocking very rarely now, will there be an increase later on?

Permanent Nukes on MGSV: TPP PS3 (and other consoles?) by reddit user /u/Hastatus_Atratus

A Reply from Konami Customer Support - November 10 2017:

After a few more back and forth emails to Konami on the issue of the Permanent Nukes I received the following reply on October 31st:

Hello.

Thank you for contacting KONAMI Customer Support.

We understand your sentiments in this matter, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

Regarding your concern, please be informed that we will conduct an investigation with the department in-charge based on the contents received.

Nonetheless, once we are able to prepare information that we can announce regarding this matter, we will notify you within the game.

We apologize for not being able to provide a definite response in this mail.

Rest assured that we will continue to strive to improve our quality continuously.

We ask for your kind understanding regarding this matter.

Thank you for playing METAL GEAR SOLID V.

Best Regards,

KONAMI Customer Support Team


I might be reading too much, too hopefully into this but the suggestion that they will make an announcement about the issue "within the game" presumably to everyone and not just me ('you' plural) could imply that they are thinking several steps ahead and might already be working on the issue. Fingers crossed.

At this point I have done everything a single player can possibly do to help get this problem addressed. If we do not end up seeing any official announcement or results soon the only option left would be amassing the voices of a large enough number of players. To this end I am suggesting that players who care about this issue get the word out to each other and consider raising our collective voices all at once through Twitter and emails on December 8th 2017. December 8th 2015 was the closest we ever came to Nuclear Disarmament: there were only 23 nukes on the Xbox 360. I will post further details on this plan here, on Reddit, and on GameFAQs as we approach December 8th...though, hopefully we will get official word from Konami by then and it will not be necessary.
