Previous Thread: >>127935545
someone better screencap the last thread like they promise
i wanna keep it
maybe ill add it to my currently WIP book "The Game Industry" as a result of gamers expecting too much of technology and false advertising
This is fucking terrible, what the fuck did I just watch.
>no one calls it Project Eve
also i don't it's possible to participate in that many wars in real life. also fucking christ, 70+ missions with SOG, Green Berets, Wild Geese AND Delta Force? how is that even possible? don't you need like 4 years training to get into one each?
>even after death i will be remembered by my enemies
yeah boss a lot of people will remember you after death
Why couldn't MGSV be P4 levels of comfy. PW was so close.
you can accrue 90 additional proficiency points by doing three things
>Get an S-rank or infiltrate/defend an FOB 3 times (distinguished service medal)
>Be originally captured as a puppet or get taken prisoner (service cross, if they don't already have it don't but but there technically are ways to do it for male soldiers exclusively)
>defend an FOB by personally killing or extracting the infiltrator (medal of honor)
This'll upgrade a low rank soldier to A++ usually, for higher rank soldiers it CAN change SOME S-ranks to S+ ranks, but not all of them. in order for this to happen they have to be a higher value of S-rank to begin with.
This guy here was originally an S-rank, but I extracted him as a puppet and defended an FOB a few times, now he's an S+.
Note: QT's can only get medals of honor and distinguished service medals.
>Note: QT's can only get medals of honor and distinguished service medals.
That's not true, you just have to be willing to risk them in combat deployments.
Defenses are more reliable and give as much progress towards a service medal than infiltration.
The best way to get a bunch of defense requests is to refresh the list of people to support until you find some sub 1000 esp rank people, they'll get invaded through retaliation pretty regularly and if their not online it's your turn.
you can get service medals that way but since there is no way to reduce soldier loses to 0% then it is always a gamble to their survival, a gamble you have to make three times.
to my knowledge all QT's with service crosses were hacked and then stolen, but I'll look into it.
Even using custom groups your percentages aren't great though, unlike PW you can't flood the battlefield with ten tanks and a ZEKE to make combat losses impossible.
Online deployments have fixed death rates too, doesn't matter who you deploy so it's best to deploy your biggest jobbers first.
Well, it started with some pants on head shitposting about the guy who posts "the most autistic MGS characters" then some guy shitposted about "something important being in the GZ tapes" on loop, then some drawfags came in and were cool for a bit.
I was in that thread for a bit, there was discussion about the Chip & Inronicus LP making fun of the retarded Patriot shit in MGS2, complaining about Rose which caused some guy to respond with a reaction image from a shit tier anime, and other stupid shit.
>pretending there was stuff in the game that wasn't actually there
What the fuck.
That's pretty brutal.
Kojima, I knew you wanted to give us the phantom pain, but this is going way too far.
For once I agree with image, those are almost universally master bait. My only addition would be to swap the reactions for MGR and MGS3, MGR is fucking metal and amazing but I've played MGS3 almost 40 times.
most AUTISTIC /mgg/ posters (in no particular order)

>Autistic and handsome at the same time
>not posting the superior cuties.
also, have a comic, /mgg/
>Miller and Ocelot
delete this trash
hey, it's possible
just take a look at venom
>tfw I'm on that list 3 times.
Big Shell was badly designed and needing to backtrack a lot.
None of the boss fights were memorable or good (Ray swarm and Solidus were the most bullshit of them all)
Raiden being unbearable (it's hard to like a game when you can't even like the guy you are stuck with, not to mention the game dragged his shitty girlfriend into this mess)
The story was questionable and then went full retard at Arsenal Gear
>just take a look at venom
we are Venom
great thread start so far, boys.
a mix of quality and clever shitposting with genuine discussion about the game along with it's mechanics and in story.
good memes keep /mgg/ alive.
repeat after me:
good memes keep /mgg/ alive
>This fucking ending
I'm not sure whether to laugh or throw-up, what the fuck is this.
I heard that Quiet leaves for good in MGS5.
When does this happen so that way I can try and S Rank as many missions with her as possible before that.
Just beat the mission where I had to fight the skulls at the airport and keep Code Talker alive
How the fuck can I be so sure any one of you are real? How can I be sure that you aren't A.I.s trying to sabotage /mgg/, or whatever ulterior motives you have.
Prove it. Prove it to me now. Prove to me that you are human.
Just because it says this thread has 21 posters doesn't mean it doesn't have 20 bots.
>Prove it. Prove it to me now. Prove to me that you are human
She has to leave you to trigger mission 45.
As >>128000674 said, you can get her back by doing webm related 7 times.
The captcha says I'm not a robot.
It is physically impossible to post without agreeing to that.
A robot wouldn't agree to not being a robot, right?
I mean, what kind of robot doesn't even know that it's a robot?
An S++ gives you the maximum potential for a valuable direct contract slot. S+'s can be cheesed by getting puppets and giving them medals, S++'s are either Event for FOB specific.
>Episode 10: Midnight Raid
that sounds hype as fuck
reminds me of that MGSV concept art of a snowy area with a bunch of soldiers in a base at night looking over a bunch of charging soldiers
dunno what it was like when peace walker came out (wasn't here)
it was mostly theories, gz posts, analysis about the trailers, general hype about mgsv, and quantities of shitposting
it was a lot more tolerable
Some questions about guncams since they don't really explain:
>Do they replace your regular cams, or does it add a bunch of new cams that can shoot?
>Do their attacks ever actually help?
>Using a camera placer, will it place a guncam or a regular camera?
I don't want to spend a billion resources without knowing what I'm getting into.
im a sucker for his sketches
love the flowy look
Trust me. I can remember shit from The Simpsons. It is absolutely my only skill in life.
What are some unique toys I should start using? I mainly use silenced tranq pistol and sniper rifle, sometimes boxes for distraction, and the normal decoy.
I only ever use buddies for scouting.
No demon points pls.
I have some side-ops to do, but I know the locations already. What can I do to spice it up?
Most autistic characters (in no particular order)
>ALL genome soldiers
>The entire Dead Cell Unit
Ok so after googling a ton there doesn't seem to be any conclusive answers about this so I figured I'd ask here.
After mission 41 the story fucking froze and refused to progress. I dicked around a bit as supposedly would help, and it did. The game gave me Mission 43 and some tapes after that and I'm fucking frozen again. Done almost all the REUSED missions and some boring ass side ops. How the actual fuck do I make the game continue the fucking story this is abslute garbage. I don't wanna do all this side bullshit, just let me finish this fucking game so I can waste my life on other garbage.
All the fucking threads keep telling me to do side ops and unequip the butterly emblem. I'm mashing side ops without any fucking success and I dont even know how to equip emblems, and It's not working. Someone help me end this bullshit
You caught me at the right time, Anon.
Most cucked characters (in no particular order)
>ALL genome soldiers
>The entire Dead Cell Unit
I put all of mine on the top of vents, that way they either have to spend the time to go all the way down again, doubling their time as a bright glowing wall beacon, or they don't realize in time and get blasted off the roof.
Intel platform is a gimme, 1 at the upper floor ladder and 3 at the tops of each of the vents. there is literally no way to ingress to the objective without triggering a mine. place the camera on the pole next to the top vent.

"Codetalker is so old, it's not safe to fulton him. Get in this chopper with me instead, boss. For safety."
>ocelot says something about Miller knowing you want boxes
>miller will expect a happy, cheerful snake grateful for the boxes
>instead he gives the same blank expression as always
no wonder miller went /nuclear/
in terms of personality:
Solid Snake > Raiden > Big Boss > Venom
in terms of memes:
Venom Snake => Big Boss > Raiden > Solid Snake
in terms of handsomeness:
Venom Snake > Big Boss > Solid Snake > Raiden
in terms of dick size
Raiden > Solid Snake = Big Boss = Venom Snake
Wasn't he suppose to be with the soviets and getting butt buddy with Gurlukovich anyway ?
Even when smiling, you can see the tism' clearly
Venom still a cute, though
this is one of the only times i see venom smile
the other being the birthday party
why is he so sad /mgg/?
im sure mother base provides lots of entertainment
boss isn't the type of guy that eats alone in the cafeteria
REMINDER THAT HUEY IS A HORRIBLE PERSON WHO TOLD BIG BOSS THAT SANTA ISN'T REAL
His facial geometry was built to look most realistic for that constipated scowl he gives in the ACC. breaking character was never intended.
having shrapnel rammed up your fucking brain can probably do things to you
shoot it, shoot it with guns.
[extreme] variant sally can actually have every part of it's body broken and still function perfectly. damage to any part of the body will always do damage.
I hate venom. Its 100% not his fault and he seems like a nice guy but he shouldn't exist.
But he does. And for what. For the sake of MG1? SERIOUSLY? THATS THE LOSE END YOU CHOOSE TO TIE UP?
A part will explode and look fucked up when it is broken, it will also arch electricity.
when reflex mode pops prepare your fastest and most accurate weapon, preferable a bullet weapon, and Mantis will descend from the sky as sally charges her railgun. Shoot Mantis to cancel this event and make sally vulnerable for a few seconds.
God, that fist pump animation has to be the most cringe-worthy, artificial animation in the whole game. They ran out of time SO hard that couldn't even get some random janitor to come to the mocap studio for 5 minutes to perform a realistic human gesture?
Fuck, the whole thing in general is stupid the more you think about it.
>sneak through enemy base
>enemy dudes literally 10 feet away outside the door that's still hanging wide open
>better stand here like a fucking autist for 5 seconds with my fist in the air and a stupid shit-eating grin on my face instead of actually doing what I came here to do now that I've reached my objective
I mean, even Killzone 3 had cool cutscene sequences every time one side or the other performed a major objective in MP where each member of each team appeared with their individual names and had a role in the scene
They couldn't have a 3 second fade-to-black shot of boss starting to open the inner door or something?
people in the R&D team with specific skills despite being usually low-ranking soldiers
they keep adding new items to the game and some of them require staff who, if you didn't DC them, would have been dismissed because they were early game and low-ranked.
that's what he said. i also remember him saying he really would have liked to have done it, but the pay was just downright too little. i'm wondering if it was insultingly low or if he was being picky, since zero barely had many lines.
Don't you want to protect your waifu's smile ?
So on the mission select screen in MGS5, anything not dimmed out is something I have not gotten?
and why is it that two of the missions I can do in MGS5 are just reskins of older missions with bullshit gimmicks?
Ask code talker. He'd know
>I'm not following what you're asking in the first part and yes
you know how when looking at a mission there is a list of skills and blueprints that can be found in the mission?
Anything not greyed out means I still need to get them?
would anyone be interested in a sketch? i haven't drawn in over a year so i'm beyond rusty, but i want to work on it
Does anyone have any cool mgs merch? I wanna see pictures. I got this snake eater book for my birthday.
Loads of pictures of Kojima posing seductively. I'm not even kidding. I also got this Kaz. I gave him a little donut.
The Venom jacket's neat, but the Puma branding kind of clashes with the Diamond Dogs patch.
Go for it anon. It's always fun to see some OC around here.
But draw something you want, to keep you going. Your favorite character, for example.
I'll be looking forward to the result.
Thats cool as fuck, sugita has one but his looks like it's just blue.
>I did it! Cuckoldry!
What did he mean by this?
The blue one Sugita's wearing is more what id want.
But I just found out this exists, and that I have no means of getting one. FUCK.
I just got pic related delivered. It's a 36x24 vinyl poster.
Not usually a fan of posters, but I needed something for my frame.
I've also bought the MGSV collector's edition guide, since it had some really nice drawings and useful info for side OPS.
I wanted the MGS 1984 collection jacket, but it was sold out.
>he will never make your portrait.
I listen to those tapes on the way to work.
I'm pretty certain I'm not missing anything, from the intel data tape to Skullface's early ramblings about language and hints of the parasite. So tell me what you think we missed. Because there are enough leads as it is, no one will be interested in going on a wild goose chase.
Sorry im late, I just woke up
I took about 30 screenshots of the whole thing before having to get to sleep.
It might take me a while to edit into epik bread type thing
expect it later on in the day
you get your massive medic and 2 other soldiers that once you made them can never be edited again.
It was a bitch for me because when I wanted it to seem like my mgofu just changed class instead of having another mgofu, so I had to try and recreate an exact copy of her
You should draw Mosquito.
Everyone should draw Mosquito.

People had fun and it was a community. It also was more /mgg/ instead of /mgsvg/. Always had /mgg/ pulled up during those days.
Now there's no link to the Multiplayer Sheet or the OFOB page. Hell, we don't even have movie night anymore. It could be a lot better if people talk about the other MGS games or found what good there was in MGSV, but all that's said when it's brought up is "MGSV was so bad it ruined the entire franchise :^)"
/mgg/ died soon after MGSV launched. I mostly just come in for MGS-related pictures.
>implying anything outside the games is anywhere near canon
The only thing that is arguably canon is the big boss / kaz miller audio drama and that's only because it was included in the japanese version of gz
>battle gear distrupted the game balance
>running through the whole mission with a tank, skipping everything and getting an S rank with no effort didn't
ffs just say that you had to cut it for budget
What is everyone's progress with the Challenge Tasks?
MGSV was unfinished.
>Koji can go to Hell
So did Joosten move back to Holland or something?
>So did Joosten move back to Holland or something?
She's been there on holidays. I've actually been to her home city for new year's eve, learned about it there talking with locals. Also got arrested by the police, accused of terrorism and held in a cell for 12 hours.
I can understand why she came to live in Japan.
Nope, it's an average-sized city nonetheless, plus I spent more time visting the police station of Roermond and meeting with the anti-terrorist police.
Funny guys those Dutch people.
Gadverdamme, anon. That sucks.
What the hell did you do to get arrested anyway.
Also, she calls Paul Ruven famous, but I don't know any of his work. His biography is quite short too.
>you timed it perfectly
>you and the Joost will both be in the very same town for the holidays
>you can't contain your feelings
>"I'm so excited I could EXPLODE!"
>tulip cops are right behind you
>use your mangled Dutch to explain you were being metaphorical
>somehow manage to accidentally threaten to murder Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange
>spend Christmas in the terrorist drunk tank
>Joosten never returns to the Netherlands again
I don't give a single fucking dick shit fucking ass about Quiet. I just want off this stupidlyu fucking designed mission so I can do other shit. I can't fucking beat it. That simple. I am utter garbage. There. Just let me fucking ditch this shit.
I need to take a pic of my updated collection soon
I got raiden nendo and figma snake aswell now
I think challenge tasks is just another way of Kucknami trying to force you to buy MB coins for more FOBs.
I have so many unclaimed rewards it's not funny.
>played at release & got bored of it before meeting Eli
>started again a day ago & played non stop
Have a few questions for FOB, what are the ballistic missiles for? Hope it's worth it leaving my PS4 on for 24 hours straight.
when that thing first came out i was only left with 5 challenge tasks left.
I was mashing the x button for 10 minutes trying to accept everything but all the plants and GMP were all at max
Apparently being French and taking pictures means you're planning a terrorist attack.
They're quite ignorant about terrorism, they just apply common, almost cliché techniques without actually tailoring it to the individual they're in front of, nor using their brains. So obviously it clashed that I wasn't as "normal" as they expect someone to be, nor that I lead a normal life, and it was even less fitting with the security freak that I am that enjoys leaving no trace, or fuzzy ones.
And the deeper they dug, the weirder the stuff they found was, despite having no solid proof that I was a terrorist.
I genuinely hope there won't be a terrorist attack in Holland, because you guys are fucked.
the online dispatch missions keep running wehen the game is off. You can see it with the little globe icon, all timers with it run online, like the FOB build progress.
And the missiles are an attack boost in those automatic battle matchups.
Thanks, but I tried putting my console to rest mode but when I woke up, I got notified I went offline or something like that, my story mode developments made no progress. Is it different from online?
Fuck I'm late for work.
Ballistic Missiles aren't for FOB, they're for PF.
You can use them to gain an advantage over your opponent.
But those are online, so you don't have to keep your PS4 on.
I'm honestly not surprised. I'm Flemish actually, but we're in the same shit. Went to Brussels for Christmas shopping and there was military everywhere.
I guess you had bad luck to get profiled. Talk about a shitty new year.
So how do I do Quiet on Extreme?
I figured you can sometimes collapse the ruins on her, but that does lethal damage.
check the timer countdown. If there is the little globe icon at the countdown, it is running on the konami server and will always count down no matter if you're offline, playing, or off.
if it doesn't have it, it only runs while you play, online or offline.
Well too fucking bad that the game doesn't let me research anything. I wouldn't even have had the fulton maxed out if it wasn't mandatory. The entire base-management and research part of the game is really boring to me,
should have just said allahu ackbar refugee and got away with no trouble at all. Hell, they might even have bought your gifts for you.
can't profile a sand nigger. thats racist.
took me a number of tries, but i did the supply drops so i could get all the mission tasks out of the way. just gotta be really diligent about popping out and baiting her into taking a shot right before it lands on her.
I tried a few times but she always ran right before it hit, but maybe I just wasn't baiting her hard enough.
I'm thinking of going lethal and extracting people by shooting them in the legs, just so I get to use a wider variety of weapons.
My Medics should be able to handle this, right?
>I think challenge tasks is just another way of Kucknami trying to force you to buy MB coins for more FOBs.
yeah you've got to time it very exactly, if it's too soon she'll get the shot and have reloaded in time to jump away. i think i popped up when the timer was around 3?
i think a lot of people just end up deploying the tank on her
The only thing left to do is a bunch of online dispatch missions. Since those take days to do and have a high death rate for my soldiers, I'm not exactly inclined to do any missions other than the S+ recruiting ones.
>I think challenge tasks is just another way of Kucknami trying to force you to buy MB coins for more FOBs
What did he mean by this?
I hope you dont mind but im having a quick lurk of your twitter.
you seem like a cool person
Im afraid thats all the feet pics I have.
I might have a webm or two with them in it if you must have them
Is there a reason to use Nonlethal Bases?
Also, do Long Range FOBs only use snipers?
I'll tell you now, most of the mgs posters are
I want this to be real the more I see it. They didnt even really like him in Japan. The fucking dog was more popular. Tasteless gooks.
Franchise died, then Phantom Pain came out.
Kojima left to do some Sony exclusive shit, probably will be underwhelming since he forgot how to make games (look at Peace Walker), but we can dream.
Still no MGO on PC, but who cares because it will be riddled with cheaters and uses P2P networking.
Konami keeps adding shit to entice people to buy MB coins, because mobile/Facebook game business models make $$$.
The dance at Big Boss and Ocelot's wedding must have been so awkward with Big Boss being a manlet and all.
DD not only beat out Kaz in the character poll, but also beat out Quiet in the buddy poll. You go dawg
Hows everyone's motherbase customisation going?
I just decided to make a vent go in a straight line from the bottom of the R&D platform to the very top right next to the Helipad.
I feel it could come in handy when defending, and I put a security cam next to it and got a soldier to guard that area to prevent attackers from using it
I also chained the R&D platform to the medical platform so it wouldn't have any platforms with material containers on them.
someone translated the comments for him, it was a lot of admiration of his 'cool playfulness' and 'gun skills' and 'loyalty to big boss'
isn't that actually what's happening, though?
Not much of a joke if it's true.
>shoulder-fired missile launcher takes R&D of 16
>7.62mm semi-automatic sniper rifle takes R&D of 23
>bottle full of gasoline and styrofoam takes R&D of 24
Fat Kaz a best. It just works. I bet he has little side-rolls when he's sat up.
Kojima works for Sony now.
There will never be another Metal Gear, ever.
Unless Sony buys the franchise from Konami, I guess.
More likely they'll just have him develop a new Sony-exclusive IP, all that money and work that went into the Fox Engine is effectively wasted because Kojima can't use it and Konami is out of the video game business.
Weird to think that would even happen. The company that started cheat codes is gone.
>not delivering the food to his bedside and feeding it too him as you prop up his head with a comfy pillow
we must be gentle and cater to our big, thick, growing baby
he has a new company and Sony happily paying the bills.

Anyone with their PHD in Metal Gear lore, can you help me out with something?
How much did each of these people know about the true reasons for Operation Snake Eater -when it commenced- after Virtuous Mission? Do I have this right?
Didn't know much, even had no idea why The Boss was apparently a traitor
I actually don't know - was he aware of the Legacy? Did he know why the Boss did what she did or did he just have his orders to head the operation?
Was there anything going on that she actually didn't know about?
>Hot Coldman/Strategist (PO canon)
I guess they planned it or were involved, but maybe didn't know about Volgin's plans for the Legacy. Was The Boss reporting to them throughout or just prior?
Also what major players am I forgetting? Tks
Yeah I always thought so. She accepted her death so level-headedly, but I dont think that wouldve been the case if she hadnt wrapped up the lose end of getting to meet him before she died.
seems easy enough.
Zero didn't know, or at least Snake didn't know that he knew or he would be fucking pissed.
The Boss and Hot Coldman knew everything, and the strategist might not even be real.
I think she might have.
Replaying MGS3 while knowing that Ocelot is her son, she reprimands him in a kind of motherly way rather than a military higher up would.
The way she tells him guns aren't toys and confiscates his revolver, open-palm slaps him, and mocks his hand signs
