Jack Bauer Rescues Snake in Metal Gear Solid V Gameplay Trailer?

Here’s a six-minute gameplay from what we’re presuming is the opening stage of Metal Gear Solid V. While there’s no official confirmation of the voice actor of the man leading Snake to safety, any fan of 24 should have no problem detecting the voice of Kiefer Sutherland.

The video shows snake having just awoken from his nine-year coma, which would explain why he’s having to crawl, as his legs haven’t quite woken up yet. The tapping noise his prosthetic arm makes on the hard floor is so awkward it’s unbelievable, it’s borderline unwatchable. The bum-crack shots of the guy ahead of Snake in his hospital gown are a bit much too.

We don’t see snake at his stealthy best here, he’s falling all over the place and knocking over bins like a drunken hobo but we’re sure he’ll be on his feet and snapping necks in no time. There are some cool cameos from past villains to enjoy, like a flaming Volgin and what may be a very young Psycho Mantis.

David Hayter Won’t Star in Metal Gear Solid V

Fan favourite voice actor, David Hayter, won’t be reprising his role as the voice of Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V. That’s the official word from Hideo Kojima himself, who told Gametrailers, “What we’re trying to accomplish here is [to] recreate the Metal Gear series. It’s a new type of Metal Gear game and we want to have this reflected in the voice actor as well.”

Controversial stuff from the maestro, especially given that he was lucky to get away with sneakily ditching Snake for Raiden in Metal Gear solid 2 which many fans still feel sore about. Continue reading David Hayter Won’t Star in Metal Gear Solid V

The Phantom Pain Trailer Fools Nobody, Reveals Metal Gear Solid V

The video premier from the VGAs showing the debut trailer for the ‘new game’, The Phantom Pain, essentially outs the Metal Gear Solid V. The internet took no time in dissecting the trailer that’s packed with references to the Metal Gear series.

The protagonist crawling along the floor is clearly sporting an eye patch and bears a similar scar to the poster image for Snake in the upcoming Ground Zeroes game. But it’s the end of the trailer with various angled lines above the logo that can clearly be pencilled in to reveal a logo for Metal Gear Solid V.

The company apparently developing this new game, Moby Dick Studios, seems to be made up and their CEO is one Joakim Mogrim, a name that can be jumbled up to produce Kojima (MGS creator and director) and it also contains the name Ogre, a long-standing codename for Kojima’s next project.

The more we watch the trailer it looks increasingly likely we’re watching some sort of playable dream sequence. The giant flaming whale probably nudged us that way. Volgin from MGS3 shows up too.

What is more exciting though is the atmosphere built up during the trailer that is unlike any other Metal Gear game. There’s more of a survival horror vibe, which is an unlikely direction for the series, but nonetheless, we wouldn’t mind playing through something like this for part of the game.

Take a look at the trailer and gear yourself up (sorry, had to) for what could be something very special.

Thanks to the posters at NeoGaf for pointing out some of the MGS references.
