View Full Version : Metal Gear Survive

08-17-2016, 06:35 PM

In the immortal words of JonTron: I am sad that I lack the talent to make this shit up.

Our main characters (which don't appear to include Snake himself) get sucked into an alternate dimension and proceed to play Left 4 Dead or Day Z until they get back home due to arbitrary plot.

How or why is this a Metal Gear game?

Konami announced a new Metal Gear title at Gamescon. It will be a four player co-op game set in the events after MGS:Ground Zeroes and tells how the few survivors of the Big Boss' merc group were magically transported into an alternate reality that is overrun with zombies. I am not even kidding.

This is one of the stupidest ideas to ever come out of Konami. And that is saying something.

I am speechless

Even if it looked good you couldn't pay me to give Konami my money these days.

I could always be wrong, but yeah this looks pretty shite. Konami said "Y'know let's not worry about the convoluted, ridiculous MGS story at this point. Let's focus on making it more stupid, with generic zombie-shooter gameplay!"

You know what those thundering footsteps at the end are, right?

It's gonna be a zombie Metal Gear. A. Zombie. Motherfucking. Metal Gear.

I will never support this company again. They want to prove they're re-committed to the industry? All the CEOs need to resign, get a whole new crew, and then they would need to be public about their working conditions. And Japan doesn't like to be public about anything, even when it's good news. So they're pretty much just dead to me

It's already making far more sense than the actual MGS games. Shame they're about 10 years late to the whole zombies meme.

i actually loled out loud when i saw this

Could be a fun game. Definitely doesn't look like metal gear outside of the bit from ground zeroes though.

im really into this drunk fanfiction plot creation method

its really something to behold, a company spiraling headfirst into the ocean

They were already in the ocean to be honest. This is them slowly drowning.

Every time I think Konami can't outdo itself in the worst way possible they prove me wrong.

Sitting back watching their antics has become far more entertaining than their games.

So... Resident Evil became the new Silent Hill and now Metal Gear will become the new Resident Evil. Does this mean we'll get a reboot of Fear Effect which will become the new Metal Gear?

Looks like absolute fucking horseshit.

The only thing I'm remotely curious about is whether the giant footsteps are hinting at a zombie Metal Gear, as previous posters have suggested, or perhaps a giant zombie Gurlugon, in a nod to earlier games. Probably a zombie Metal Gear, since I doubt anyone working on this game would be that familiar with obscure throwaway jokes from turn-of-the-century MGS titles.

I'm interested in what makes the zombies 'work', but only because I'm generally curious about that sort of thing.

Seriously, there's at least one big untold Metal Gear story just begging to be turned into a game: Big Boss' exploits during the late 1980s and early 90s. We know he built FOXHOUND during that time, recruiting Gray Fox, Mantis, Wolf, the twin Snakes and others from warzones and militaries across the globe. There's a big tale to be told about his glory days as a hero of the US, while secretly manipulating events and challenging the Patriots behind the scenes, until his eventual final fall from grace. Hell, there could even be a chapter or two taking place right at the end, after his "resurrection" in Guns of the Patriots. I'm imagining a huge Phantom Pain-style open world title, bringing in iconic series characters and taking control of them during epic exploits.

...I doubt we'll ever see any of that, of course, but it's fun to imagine.

In the meantime, some co-op zombie smiting. Fucking yay?
