I'm well rehearsed in the overall lore and story about the franchise but with a lot of my favourite game sagas I like to listen to intelligible and knowledgeable people discussing the lore and story arcs and I was looking to see if someone has the best recommendation for a YouTube playlist i could listen to with regards to the metal gear saga
What's on your mind?
Recently booted up metal gear survive so I can start off from scratch, anyway I collected a few colour variations for armour and clothing but haven't the slightest clue about gathering some of the required materials does anyone know if there's some sort of guide for going about collecting the materials needed to craft colours?
What do you guys think had the BEST story of a MGS game? As its own story, like how Snake Eater could have very well been its own solo game if it was supposed to be.
Alright, I read through a lot of the posts on here before I decided to add my own words amongst y'all but my boyfriend decided to get into MG: Survive after Death Stranding came out because of the 'connections' comment Kojima made in one of his earlier interviews about Death Stranding. I believe he was referring to a lot of the ideals having connections rather than the storylines idealistic connectivity BUT nonetheless Metal Gear: Survived turned out to be a pretty fun game considering it's like a Minecraft Sims: Nazi Zombie edition gameplay going on. Either way, Kojima has a very identifiable style when it comes to his ability to cause us to speculate and grow on a very small idea set in motion by a clever hint he's tweeted.. All I'm trying to say is.. I believe Kojima has a bigger picture here, I believe he's found away to make it all tie together and I also believe he's got us all hooked solely on the franchise because of his presentation abilities.
Now, I realize MOST of what I've read here is against MG:Survive because of the gameplay or the opinion.. But does anybody wanna play anyway?
Is it just me? Or does it seem like this wikia's fandom page is deader that Kojima's career at Konami? If you're still here, then please leave a comment below to tell me that I'm not alone.
does somebody has a problem with blood that can't be washed (when you take a shower)
since a while I can't make it disappear ...
Don't tell me that I should reinstal the game please (PS4 downloaded version)
So in MGSV you meet liquid,(as a child) but wouldnt big boss know thats his son? I probably sound stupid but hey, whatever.
I feel like this makes somewhat sense
How I get back sniper Quiet if I killed her in mision 11
So I'm playing Metal Gear Rising: Eight Head Edition when on R-03 I see a bank called P.T. Bank. Remember the game P.T. that was supposed to be a teaser, but turned out to be standalone after Kojima left. I'm not 100%, but if I were to make an easter egg, it would be the name of a teaser. Platinum Games developed MGR, but there are multiple other Konami easter eggs, so I don' think it's too far off.
We all think it's weird how much love and respect Big Boss gets from his men (and women) on Mother Base. He has almost formed a cult-like following among his people. But I'm about to shock you (maybe not... Who knows.) with what I'm about to tell you...
Are you ready?
Here we go...
Not a single one of them actually, genuinely loves him. (Save Kaz, Ocelot etc.)
That's right. Not a single member of Diamond Dogs loves or even likes Big Boss. Before you slam this in comments, hear me out. Has anyone noticed how Diamond Dogs recruits it's people? Diamond Dogs hires exclusively (Beyond it's main memebers and rescued prisoners) by Fultoning out enemy soldiers. At first you may think "this is just a game mechanic for the base building segment" and you would be right, but I think it goes deeper. They're ALL enemy soldiers. Russian soldiers, Cypher agents, opposing PMC soldiers. All of them are fighting for a different cause. Surely they believe in what they're doing, else wise they wouldn't be doing it. Maybe some don't believe, but most have to. Soviet soldiers who are patriotic to their country also, who may even have families at home. Yet when they get Fultoned out, they amazingly become your friends without a single care for the life that they left behind. They even come close as can be to worshiping Big Boss. Including the cypher agents who were supposed to kill him. So what is happening here? What is the reason for this sudden shift in alliegence? One word: Hypnotism. Big Boss is hypnotizing his men and I can prove it. When you Fulton out one of the men who hate and desperately want to kill you, (whom you probably mortally wounded to capture them) They go to the BRIG to be PERSUADED. Who would do this? Who would be in charge of prisoners? An interrogator perhaps?
Ocelot would be in charge. You know what else? Any Metal Gear fan who has played the whole series will tell you that he has an extensive back ground in Hypnotic suggestion. We can safely say for certain that not even the name Big Boss carries that much weight in the soviet union. He WAS their enemy after all. Ocelot even Hypnotized two people in THIS game alone. One person was the crippled medic who would later become Big Boss's body-double (Spoilers BTW) and even himself, so he could genuinely aid Ahab as if he were Big Boss himself. Why he needed to do the last one is beyond me. He is such a good liar after all. This is also supported by how they act. Big Boss schools them in battle and then they seem to almost fall in love with him. Just like Ocelot did in MGS3. He is using himself as a sort of base for it all. Every Mother Baser is Ocelot. Even that Soldier who had the engraved pistol doing trick shots. Ocelot even had to pull him to the side and tell him how "engravings serve no tactical advantage." Just like Big Boss did him in MGS3. Now keep in mind that this whole farce with Fake-Boss was set up by Zero AND the REAL Big Boss. Big Boss was the one who decided to use Ahab, and by extension, the whole hospital as a sacrifice. Big Boss got everyone in that Hospital killed so he could escape. Not the same hero he was in MGS3 and MGS Peace Walker. Big Boss before MGS3 was viewed by gamers the same way that we these days see Solidus. A former Hero of the American people who was betrayed and went bad, spreading death and destruction everywhere he went in an effort to get revenge and stay needed at any cost. Founding the extremist terrorist state of Outer Heaven AND Zanzibar Land. We were never wrong to see him that way. He betrayed his friends, goals and the innocents and strayed from his path. That is why he is STILL the villain of Metal Gear. At the end, he acknowledged his mistakes and repented, but that does not change the fact that he misinterpreted the Boss' will and let his NEW desire cloud his judgment. He originally meant to free soldiers to fight their own wars, but when the Boss's will was revealed, that she simply wanted to sing and put down her gun, he felt betrayed. Soldiers like him could NEVER exist in peace. So that became his new goal. No longer was it about freedom to choose your own fight, but instead it became about the need to be needed. Soldiers like Grey Fox who had known nothing but war and had no gifts in anything but war could not simply stop. They needed war to survive. And so Big Boss was no longer a pillar of "freedom for all soldiers" like he had been durring Peace Walker. He became nothing more than just another Warmonger. His intentions and changed goals are evident by his dialogue with Solid Snake at the end of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Create war and fan it's flames to create victims. Rescue the victims and feed them into the war, creating the next conflict. In this way, Big Boss ACTUALLY created the War Echonomy. The Patriots may have been using it, but Big Boss created it. Big Boss BECAME the Patriots in the end, just using men and women to fulfill his own goals. From the begining they are trained and hypnotized to believe this. EVEN WE were hypnotized to believe that Big Boss was a good man, even when we knew before hand what he was. Hypnosis is a tool of Big Boss that even we fall for. I guess the children of Zanzibar land said it best. "The one-eyed man is like our Daddy."
I have a question about the extras characters. I wanna get a Major Zero, Taiko and Venus, How can I get them?
What do you think? Was it salvaged and taken to Shadow Moses? Can REX stand up straight if it had enough room? I know that REX can fit a fully grown man and Sahelanthropus could only fit a child, but it could have been changed during repairs. Leave you're opinion in the comments below.
