I and everyone else on the entire planet deal with it by dedicating our entire lives to recreating the world as that person desired it, fomenting global strife because none of us really understood what their vision was to begin with.
Kaz is my husbando! Mine!
But because you're all really nice, I'm willing to share as long as you feed him on a regular basis.

You might've permascrewed yourself out of some cutscenes, but you didn't miss anything that counts towards an achievement.
I neither like nor dislike Quiet. I don't think you're missing anything by ignoring her, but I don't want to say you ought to ignore her, either.

Because unlike other trash pairings like Bosselot and bbkaz, Liquid and Mantis actually made sense. The two of them were monter's the world never wanted. Liquid only existed because they were trying to create and icon that could emulate Big Boss, and Mantis only existed to be experimented on like a Guinea pig. The moment they found this out about each other, it's pretty much canon at this point that they became inseparable up until their death. They excepted each other when no one else did. Hell, the two of them were quite possibly the only happiness they ever had in their entire lives.

The fuck is wrong with you
Don't be sorry anon, flaming buffaloes can be reacquired by playing sahalanthropus again. when you steal one of the sotry related S+ or S++'s you have essentially stolen nothing and gotten paid for it.
Gays and pedos hate being reminded that they're biologically retarded and morally repugnant by being confronted by the object of cismales' affection.
Mantis and Eli are so cute together.
>comparing homosexuality to pedophilia
The fuck is wrong with you
emma and raiden were by far my favorite part when I played through mgs2 a few days ago. Didn't find anything like it in mgs3, I mean the Boss had a spot on voice but there was barely any acting
You can fill your ass with all the cum in the world, what comes out of it will never contribute in any way to society.
First of all, I'm not gay. It possible to not be gay and still be rational when it comes to homosexuality.
Secondly....... how the fuck does what comes out of your ass contribute to the world?
Sorry, the Boss plays for the other team. Have you not played Metal Gear?
on that subject, is it possible to make sense of a metal gear game retrospectively ? there are so many twists toward the end of each game that it feels like it must be full of plotholes, but at that point I don't remember the details well enough to point them out. Like in MGS3 Ocelot's supposedly a triple agent mastermind and was working to get the legacy all along, except if snake hadn't been retarded he could have killed him a dozen times.
What I would give for the next Metal Gear game to be about the adventures of Shota Liquid and Shota Mantis. :'(
That stupid dyke lusting after boss doesnt make her a lesbian, I'm pretty sure minor character Revolver Ocelot proves otherwise.
The best thing Huey ever did was kill that deluded slut. Quit your fucking Sorrow erasure right now and go back tumblr with your shit art and your shit headcanon you fucking stupid cuntbag
Does anybody know who Laughing Wallaby's irl model is?
I'm sure they were all glad that their parents wasn't degenerates like them and made children to keep our species alive.
Im playing mission 30 for the first time. This fucking jeep ride is THE cringiest moment in video game history. Did nobody playtest this?
So what exactly does a CC or other double letter rank mean? Is this similar to the prestige state of Call of Duty?
>tfw you find the perfect fanfic to read.
I'll be sure to post my review of it here after i'm done reading it.
How long would it take to max out your fourth FOB in reality?
They get hilariously expensive after a platform hits Rank 2. I swear, they only exist to con idiots into having a gaping hole in their defenses.
>jeep hits bumps and takes sharp turns
>BB and Skully don't fall into each other like in my chinese cartoons
>the pussy game
Is it canon though ?
I just had someone attack my fob.
I knocked them out with gas, and proceeded to tranq them literally a dozen more times. Over and over until I just gave up and they ended up killing themselves on a mine.
Terrible at infiltration, but a QT
Upgrading your third FOB to 4/4 takes about 1,4 million fuel resources, 1 million common metal, and considering that you have all resources available, about 12 days. And that's not counting the earlier upgrades. So yeah, it's a way to force people to spend on insurance.
>Watching MGS4: the movie on youtube because who has time or hard-drive space for all that installation.

Jesus I've been on a steady diet of Persona and this MGS4 shit is the most anime garbage I've seen in a while
I hope you got a ransom payment (yes you get those even if you kill a direct contract.)
I COME HOME

Goddammit I wish shadowplay picked up your games even in windowed mode
>alright im going to put all the mines so he can't get into this area
>min later I'm tripping all over my own mines
I swear to god every fucking time. Mines are a dangerous thing.
you dont even have to hunt the defender downn at ALL. Just setup in a nice area and check your map until the red circle is close to where you are lookin. There are only so many ways someone can cross the bridge (aka ONE)
You can't lose as defender.
I don't understand why The End's boss battle is so highly considered ? I only played on Hard without knowing it would be so easy so I don't know how it is on higher difficulties but I did it in on try and it didn't take me particularly long. The fact that he only uses anesthetic needles make it pretty much impossible to lose.
It was very unique and cool, when was the last time you ran through the jungle playing a game of cat and mouse using snipers against a heavily camo'd photosynthetic old fart?
Also the whole death-by-age thing.
I think you end up getting a bigger bonus if you complete it successfully or some shit like that.
Defenders also get a big bonus if they have a security challenge and they defend their FOB.
Security Challenge tells the defender they're being invaded right away, regardless of whether the invader has been spotted. The idea is to hook up invaders who want a fight with defenders who are around to give them one.
In practice, defenders forget to turn the challenge off before quitting out of the game for the day, rendering their FOBs indistinguishable from normal.
Mines are broken and need some IFF for reals.
it's just that I wouldn't even remember it if I didn't hear of it so often. In fact I posted this right after looking at a video of the best moments in MGS and the guy talked about it like one the hardest and most rewarding boss battles in any game. I had more fun playing against the pain or the boss.
As for the cat and mouse, I just put on the heat tracking goggles and followed his footprints. I don't think I had to backtrack or search in more than one area before finding him.
Pretty bad, it's incredibly visible if you sprint, you'll get lit up. against defenders it provides base-level health and regen and no headshot protection.
it's potentially good for nuke sprints with a shield on your back but really the battle dress is superior for that.
You can't hack in points, and the event is so easy and fast that you don't need to hack to one-shot the skulls and finish in a matter of seconds.
Leftover glitched rocket launchers or C4 is enough.
Its one of the tapes in the glovebox of the jeep you ride with skully
But seriously, its used i think twice in the whole game, i recognize the piano notes, or its at least somewhat similar
I think the biggest issue (that would solve a lot of people's complaints) is the game needs to be harder. It's just way too fucking easy. Which means you don't even have to use a grand majority of the tools in the game. You also miss a bunch of cool action bits like the guards calling in for gunship support.
Christ you can kill the gunships with your regular rifle.
The game was just too god damn easy. I got S rank a lot of the times on my first play o f a mission.
The problem with S Ranks on missions is none of them are tailored to the mission.
It's just 130000 points, which is extremely easy on most missions, and only slightly difficult on a select few.
Well, the 130000 is actually tailored to each mission. Each mission will give different bonuses for things like Perfect Stealth, No reflex and all that based on how tough it is to do it for that mission, and the time bonus is adjusted for each. The time bonus should have been omitted though or severely nerfed since it's the main factor in getting an S.

He's fucking adorable.
A little late, but in reply to >>127314513
I think Kojima used "phantom" because it's the closest word we have to the japanese "影武者" which is what Venom really is, and because japs think english words sound and look cooler.
Can't be worse than a guy on the top 50 who got fucked by a defender on my 2 deck FOB. The guy literally triggered the alarm within the first 15 seconds. Can't tell if he was doing on purpose though to get a fight going on.
If you cant love him in V you dont deserve him in 3
>only faggot liked troy's shitty version of Ocelot.
What a surprise. You just like those virgin Quiet waifufags. You only look for sex appeal, not the character. "OMG TROY, ER.. I MEAN OCELOT IS SO HAWT PLS TAKE MY BOIPUCCI".
>Does anybody know who Laughing Wallaby's irl model is?
I'm fucking sure Amber Fox exists in real life, I mean, who bothers drawing temple veins? no videogame character has them.
this face was captured from a real person, dammit.
>"RELATIONSHIPS" Menu in the iDroid refers to FOB shit and not a MB dating sim
Solitary and sneaky.
He literally explains this.
Some octopodes can completely change their coloration on a whim and pose as other creatures or blend into the environment.
Ocelot likes cats. Play MGS3.
Snake in some way makes sense as a surname (Big Boss' codename was Naked Snake, which probably has some relation to the Cobras and The Boss or something).
Liquid took it because he was a son of Big Boss. Same for Solidus.
Big Boss handed it down to Solid, and Big Boss had gotten it as he was a son of the Boss, leader of the Cobra Unit.
>mfw ocelot starts meowing in mgs3
did we ever find out what the fuck was kojima smoking at the time
Like kojima doesn't already have a folder full of Bosselot porn.
because the gasmask and hanging sleeves gave him a mantis like appearance, and the name stuck.
Yeah, the gas mask and arm posture are mantis-like for sure, but that can't be the only reason right? Any thing Mantis-related with telekinesis and mind control or something?
Man, Foxhound was such a top-tier Boss gang. So much character. The B&B could've been the same, but oh well.
>"Oscillate" which means to spin,
>Liquid Snake to contrast with Solid Snake
nice excuse lol
still fail to see what difference it makes other than patience. You've pretty much figured out fobs at that point, and it's not like PVP is possible to consistently win so... I can't say I'm in top 100 myself, I stopped at around 170, but I've played top 50 fobs and against top 50 fob owners, they're not particularly different from top 500.
>>Liquid Snake to contrast with Solid Snake
>nice excuse lol
what? that's literally it though. liquid snake was the 2nd genetic clone of big boss, twin snakes, liquid and solid.
>Any thing Mantis-related with telekinesis and mind control or something?
All I could find is "patience" "mindfulness", "stillness", and "meditation", from like, tibetan horoscopes or something.
Ambush predator stuff, like you'd expect, but nothing spiritual.
Might be a little late, but it literally shadow warrior, instead of nondescript apparition, and refers to a political decoy in feudal Japan. Also a Kurosawa movie about a thief who impersonates a feudal lord, falls to his own lies, gets found out and exiled, then commits suicide in his disgrace.
>Then, if the prey does not resist, the mantis eats it alive. However, if the prey does resist, the mantis often eats it head first
>pain is in the mind
>playing mgs on emulator
>remember i have to switch controller port
oh well fuck me
It still makes no sense as a FOXHOUND codename, which it wasn't at all so it doesn't matter.
That too. The adjectives obviously mean something, and aren't just a redundant description. Mantis itself isn't specifically psychic, the Psycho part is.
Psycho Mantis is a psychic predator. Decoy Octopus is a disguised manipulator.
I would infer that Psycho Octopus would focus on manipulating enemies and the environment to confuse and trick opponents, while Decoy Mantis would disguise themself until they're close enough to an enemy to take their life.
How are deployment costs for your sortie loadout actually calculated?
Does it always cost the price at the bottom to deploy? Or does it factor in your remaining gear and ammo you currently have as well?
>Does it always cost the price at the bottom to deploy?
>Or does it factor in your remaining gear and ammo you currently have as well?
No. So exfiltrate on land and accept missions in freeroam to save cash.
I'll explain again since you're retarded. It makes sense in a competitive setting of one player against another player, it makes a lot less sense in a singleplayer setting (which is what fobs essentially are) even if there is a global ranking. By your logic the top 10 ranked in the FOB event are incredibly strong compared to me who did maybe 20 tops. The truth is everybody figured out the C4 trick either by themselves or by looking at a video and every fucking one is doing those fobs the same way, the only difference is how much you value your free time.
you're talking about the event? are you fucking retarded? I did that the first day an my rank has stayed at 300~ the entire time and I haven't played it again.
If you don't understand how players actively trying to keep their rank is different than people not caring what their ranks is different you are seriously fucking stupid. Like, incredibly so. Like holy shit fucking kill yourself.
>the only difference is how much you value your free time.
So you're saying people that want it more are going to play the game more. Which means it's harder to stay in a high rank making it more difficult to keep your spot?
Sorry mate but you're retarded.
in that event where you have to save those prisoners.
both him and a playable Jackie tan were prisoners.
and then on the event after where everyone had those riot suits if you Fulton everyone on the platforms you would likely pick up both Sean Eyestone and another beard guy.
I dont know if there is anyone special on the skulls event because i haven't taken the time of Fultoning everyone
>can't log in

Where you live senpai? I'm in canada and I've had few problems aside from the occasional multiplayer glitches. those have pretty much disappeared in recent patches though.
How come I never get the walker gear cutscene at the end of Pitch Dark anymore?
Like I'm on a new playthrough and it didn't even happen. The fuck?
On a side note, holy fuck what a mission. The oilfield is fucking great.
>you will never have the Document of MGS2
seriously though, that "Program" thing that goes in depth with how the game is programmed sounds interesting as fuck
fuck, goddammit, shit.
It took me literally this long to figure this out, I've 100%'d the game done at least 70 defenses and over 200 infiltrations and I only now realized
The staff re-assignment screen tells you how close to a level-up you are.
In my defense I've used this screen probably a dozen times, everything else was with automated assignment.
lets pretend its 2008
Holy shit guys, have you seen the latest trailer for MGS4? So fucking hype. All the characters coming together, it's gonna be the biggest climax in gaming! Also, that Big Boss leak was probably a fake.
God, the game is gonna be huge. So many areas, and the whole Shadow Moses! I don't even think that's all. One of the reviewers said the FINAL cutscene is like, 2 hours long.
Who care's? The economy is in the shit, if you have money for video games you aren't buying enough gold for the post-collapse economy. Hope you're learning your Chinese, once these banks fold it will be the people's democratic republic of America
So let me get this straight....
The Patriots are computer AI.
The original Patriots (Cipher) are Zero, Sigint, and Paramedic, who managed to all die.
Eva, Ocelot, and Snake formed their own group to take down Cipher.
The Patriots were formed from stealing the money from the Philosophers, which Zero orchestrated by having Snake assassinate the Boss. Snake stole the idea of Outer Heaven from Gene, and used the stolen Philosophers Legacy (money) that he got from Eva, Ocelot, and Gene, to create MSF, DD, and OH.
Snake and Zero are frenemies, so they meetup from time to time and Zero actually nurses Snake back to health while making a body double.
Snake and Zero are both gay for the Boss, but instead of cloning her, Zero clones Snake instead.
3 clones: Solidus became President, Liquid was sent the trash in Africa, and Solid became Zero's assassin.
Still being frenemies, Zero keeps Snake alive and in a artificial coma after Solid blows him up after killing his body double.
Through the combined efforts of Eva, Ocelot, Liquid, and Solidus, Snake was rescued from Zero and used Solidus' dead body as both a decoy and spare parts to be transplanted onto his body to be "normal again".
After finally defeating Cipher and killing Zero, Snake finally gets assassinated by Solid's FoxDie 2.
Am I missing anything?
Most autistic characters (in no particular order)
>ALL genome soldiers
>The entire Dead Cell Unit
Most autistic posters (in no particular order)
So will there be more Metal Gear games now that Konami has sacked Kojima?
Whose story hasn't been told yet? What aspects would you want to see? Future? A prequel with Boss and the Cobras? Another weird retcon that squeezes even more story between the existing one?
>The original Patriots (Cipher) are Zero, Sigint, and Paramedic,
And EVA, Ocelot and Snake.
>who managed to all die.
Zero was poisoned by Skull Face and was vegetative, he was only killed by BB at the end of MGS4.
Ocelot killed Sigint.
>which Zero orchestrated by having Snake assassinate the Boss.
Zero was under the impression The Boss had actually defected. The Patriots were formed after learning the truth about it.
>Snake and Zero are both gay for the Boss, but instead of cloning her, Zero clones Snake instead.
Snake was a better soldier than The Boss (because he defeats her). And he was alive which makes him easier to clone.
>Solid became Zero's assassin.
Solid was a mercenary.
Solid never worked directly for the Patriots, and to which extent they controlled the US military on each of his missions is not precisely known. When he killed Big Boss for the first time, he was being commanded by the original Big Boss.
>After finally defeating Cipher and killing Zero, Snake finally gets assassinated by Solid's FoxDie 2.
Yes but he knew he would die, and with the Patriots defeated he chose to finally die with his "son" and near The Boss' grave.
You forgot that Paz was really a 10 year old psychic boy pretending to be a 30 year old woman spy.
Which makes him 19 by the time of TPP.
His small size is explained by parasites.
I was just waiting for it, and you didnt let me down.
God bless you.
She was made in a character editor, she's not real mate, I'm sorry to deliver this news to you.
plus, polygonal lips.
literally one guy posting the same thing over and over again so that I could post back at him with the same post.
He posts because of me,
I post because of him
You'll have to fight a fat cripple for her
He has a no-kill preference, in PW and GZ the scoring and reward system pretty much punished lethal gameplay, venom lost the plot a little. In Snake Eater at very least prior to the bit with the sorrow he simply does what is easiest to accomplish a mission, the inclusion of the Sorrow scene regardless of if you killed people or not kind of precludes an originally non-lethal mindset.
By MG2 he has a messiah complex, he aims to wound his enemies and then save them from death so that they will be loyal subjects with a life debt to him. you could argue that as non-lethal but it certainly isn't humanitarian.
So I've done everything but:
-Unlock every weapon/item/outfit
-Collect every animal
-Ever played with online mode enabled
Am I missing out on anything by not doing these?
I know animal collection counts towards 100% but unless it gives me some sort of actual reward I don't plan on collecting them all.
Is the online worth doing? I added this game to my firewall because I heard some horror stories about the online back when the game first came out.
if you farm the online events you can earn points to buy high ranked staff, but if you dont care about developing everything, you probably dont care much about staff levels either
>I know animal collection counts towards 100% but unless it gives me some sort of actual reward I don't plan on collecting them all.
Just do it for 100%'s sake. It takes less than an hour.
You get emblem parts but that's it.
no? he has plenty of hair, you can even see it tucked into his scarf
>Is the online worth doing? I added this game to my firewall because I heard some horror stories about the online back when the game first came out.
It's not too bad. But you will occasionally get some of your resources stolen.
It's a lot of fun to invest in security and try attacking/defending bases.
It's still worth being online more than not.
There are also a lot of online weapons you can make that are super strong that you can't do without a connection.
MGO comes sometime this month, and you'll need internet for that.
I know. I just wanted to talk about how pretty his hair is.
Pouncing Harrier is plain looking. PLAIN.
That's 4/4 not 3/4. I mainly just want to get it defendable enough that lesser players don't walk through it, and high players overlook it because it's not a 4/4
Guessing 3/4 is about 400-500k based on that, though.
it's like 50k for level 1, 100k for level 2 and then 300k for level 3. For level 4 it's 450k.
Command center is something like 40% more than the regular ones.
Mine are all finally on their ways to all 4/4. 15 fuckings to go from 3->4
You need something like 4 million fuel and 1.5 million common metals to get em all to 4/4
>upgrade the shit out of D-Walker's lethal weaponry and durability, skull machete and all
>expecting it to be an awesome death machine with intercept mode
>it's still as durable as cardboard and intercept mode doesn't attack anyone unless they are right next to it practically
I have never been more disappointed in this game than I was then.
>Tell DD to fulton something
>He's slow as sin fultoning things
>He won't do it unless I am within 30m of the victim
>If I run out of fultons myself, he magically forgets how to fulton things
>Can't fulton vehicles or emplacements
The first time I used the fulton ballista it broke my heart. The range is miserable and I have to hit stuff dead on. The pitiful popping noise it makes landing right next to something.
It's just so sad. I can't even deploy it to Quiet Exit, which is the only mission I'd honestly want it for.
Shota Mantis and Shota Eli magical boys GO GO GO
This board needs more shota mantis. Jesus christ. :/
Was strangelove the real winner of Metal Gear? I mean, sure she died by being trapped within a giant metal pod, but you've gotta admit. Her life was one wild ride.(the personal baths with Cecile, The Boss, Paz with lotion etc.)
Reminder: Eli and Mantis are proof that you don't need sex to have a beautiful and romantic relationship.
