    New trailer just revealed today by Moby Dick studios(essentially a troll by Kojima)
    from what it looks like it's Big Boss having crazy ass hallucinations at a hospital.

    It's MGS alright, but don't think it's MGS5
    V might stand for something else rather than being a roman numeral.

    well it clearly has volgin, raikov, big boss and psycho mantis. call it whatever you want.

    i believe The Pain is also in it. hence the name and hallucinations.

    Yeah, that's without a doubt Volgin

    Plus, Snake's bandaged partner appears to be the burned man in the Ground Zeros trailer

    Not sure about the others, though.

    You mean the Sorrow, right?

    It could be like Metal Gear Acid where Kojima used Snake's character but gave him a different backstory and put him in a different era. So a parallel universe, in other words. Or it could just be Kojima telling his fans to shut the fuck up about MGS already. It could, however, be about another (unknown) clone of Big Boss. Or maybe it is Big Boss and Solid Snake is a renowned war hero throughout America for beating up an elderly cripple.

    Also, when the guy says "On your feet, soldier. The whole place is coming down," I know I heard that somewhere before, in another game. In that exact same voice.

    it says metal gear 2 sons of liberty, metal gear 3 snake eater and metal gear 4 guns of patriots.

    logically that would make this metal gear 5 ground zeroes in the main series.


    im aware there are other games in the series, The Member Formerly Known As Baya.

    If you're aware of gaming industry trends in Japan then why are you asking such a pointless question?

    Japanese gaming companies have forsaken the number system because otherwise their games would look a lot like the Final Fantasy series. MGSGZ is probably the ninth or so chronological game of the series.

    i know that, but the article said "OH IT COULD BE METAL GEAR 5 or IT COULD BE GROUND ZEROES!"

    and when ground zeroes comes out it will have the label of metal gear 5 (id bet money on it)

    I was just saying they are the same thing. I never thought for a minute that Rising would be part 5.

    although i dont get why they number the past tense games in some kind of order with the metal gear solids but that
    goes back to what you were saying about the numbering system.

    snake eater should not have had a "solid" title but im probably just being picky.

    Rising isn't MGS5. MGS5 will be released after GZ and Rising and it will be a sequel to MGS4 or a prequel to MGS3. Check it.

    hmmm. interesting... well if its a direct sequel to ground zeroes then it could have been from 5 anyway.

    i skipped through the entire story. BOORRRRRING.

    Portable Ops is perhaps the most important story since it's when Naked Snake becomes Big Boss and is inspired to eventually create Outer Heaven. Kind of stupid that Kojima would leave it on the PSP but port Peace Walker to the PS3 when Peace Walker is little more than filling.

    The technology shown says otherwise. Still, I'd like to continue brainstorming this with you. We should deconstruct this trailer. Are you up for it?

    We'll use this as a reference. First, let's start with the names. A phantom pain is a sensation one feels when one "feels" a limb one no longer has. Moby Dick is a story about a man whose obsession ends up killing him and the people under his command. Got to be a connection. (Also, it turns out I was right about what the guy said. The source is Kiefer Sutherland in COD:WAW.)

    Remember were being trolled by Kojima since the beginning so all those elements scattered around the trailer that would be indicating another Big Boss MGS game could be just a bait.

    It was never explained just how many clones were created in the Les Enfants Terribles project. That could be it as well. Or it's a spin-off, like Acid. Do you really not have any in-depth analysis?

    Liquid lost his right arm while the guy in the trailer is missing his left. Still, it would be nice.

    The reference of Moby Dick could be related to chasing a ghost, moby dick represents more an idea than a real thing , the amnesia and the implication of a psychic unit in the area its really suspicious, what if the scenario is not real or at least not everything you see in the trailer is real, that "dream" could be the epilogue in order to give you the questions of the main plot why is Snake young again, why he doesn't remember anything, Where or When he is.

    I watched some analysis videos and read some articles.

    Google that shit, it's out there.

    Also I agree it could be a different clone... but I want it to be liquid.
