Jack Bauer as Snake… Wowee.

Quite a long time ago, this lengthy, hyper-detailed cinematic, done in the Fox Engine, wowed me and got me all excited for the next chapter in the Metal Gear saga. Well, many months later we see it again, this time in English, with none other than Keifer Sutherland in the role of Snake. Yes, it’s kinda sad that David Hayter seems to be out of the fore (but who knows if he won’t show up in some other form) but having Jack Bauer himself giving voice to Snake is beyond awesome. His delivery is far more serious than Hayter’s more cartoony and somewhat campy (‘A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA?’) deliveries, but I think it fits perfectly.

Ground Zeroes is the ‘prequel’ to MGSV: The Phantom Pain, but as yet we still don’t know if this is a separate game or bundled together with the proper MGSV. Whatever happens, I’m already sold. Kojima’s next opus can’t come soon enough.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain GDC 2013 Trailer

It’s indeed going to be a pain to wait for this.

Hideo Kojima has revealed a lot in the ongoing GDC2013, not the least of which being the (somewhat badly hidden) secret that his Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is in fact, the next numbered sequel to the seminal stealth action franchise. Gaming sites reckoned correctly that the odd ‘Phantom Pain’ trailer by some unknown developer was indeed KOjima’s doing as well, but now we know for sure- Zeroes and Pain are one and the same as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
So what’s this about? Honestly, I have no idea. We still have that ‘Snake’ in this case is still Old Snake or Big Boss from Peacewalker (along with Miller). The mysterious XOF is here, along with their burned leader, and we know that FOX and XOF will have a reckoning. There are lots of new footage and imagery aside from the stuff from the previous trailers, and it’s all quite mystical and intriguing… and with a Garbage song too! Kojima’s done it again- we’ll just have to see whether we get to play this within the decade or not.
