I’m a strong believer that the three most important things in life are: water, food, and Metal Gear Solid. So it was with a heavy heart I saw the latest Phantom Pain trailer remind us that this is the end of an era - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will reportedly be the last mainline outing in the series, and certainly the last from Hideo Kojima.
On the basis of this latest trailer however, it’s going to go out with a bang. MGS 5 is a prequel to the events of the original Metal Gear Solid, depicting how Big Boss went from loyal footsoldier to Solid Snake’s arch-nemesis. And father, incidentally, in typical mind-melting Metal Gear form. Here in the trailer we get to see Big Boss’ thirst for revenge grow, taking on the mysterious Skull Face, a flaming man, and a child-like version of Psycho Mantis. [More]
