    Is there anyone who didn’t roll their eyes when Konami premiered their new “Metal Gear” game? The Kojima-less follow-up to Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain is expected to combine stealth with co-op, but based on fan reaction, many will not even give it a chance.

    He gives some flowery speak that amounts to little more than "it will be co-operative", and then goes on to assure that despite the nature of the trailer, the game will feature stealth as a major component of gameplay: "I know when you're watching the trailer it's all very action-packed and it doesn't really elicit that feeling, but there will be stealth and one of the really interesting things that we will be exploring and playing with is how stealth and co-op can actually co-exist." The only Metal Gear game to feature co-op thus far was Peace Walker, allowing up to four players to take on both main story and side-ops missions (pictured below).

    That was so stupid. They already have a survival game, why the hell did they decide to go in this direction?

    I mean, they knew what the reaction was to the mere thought of remaking MGS3. Just do that. Right now they really need to extend an olive branch to gamers with all the crap they pulled off recently. This was their chance, and they're blowing it up so bad it's making Michael Bay jealous.

    I like how somebody put it a few days ago. This would have been fine had they just created this as a new IP. Instead they now decided to try to use the Metal Gear name to start up something new and hope that the fans would all come over to this new game. Which is pissing people off.

    Seriously.

    It's like they pulled a canned idea from around the time Left4Dead came out and decided to slap the Metal Gear name on it this year.

    I hear they're planning on refocusing "Metal Gear Survival" into a pachinko machine instead!

    I don't think it will be too bad. It could be worse. And since they are claiming it will be done as a budget title like ground zeroes...

    Titling this "Metal Gear Survive" is just too ironic.

    The last game was intolerable. Total waste of money. Graphics felt 10-yrs old and gameplay 20-yrs old.

    No way, while there were major flaws with TPP, it was great imo.

    Had that simply had a new IP instead of metal gear I bet it would have received much much better attention. Still there was nothing amazing about it at all but, still would have been a better path to just make it try to stand on its own.

    ..... Eh maybe, but it's Konami, the company that basically slapped everyone a while back.

    Who cares about metal gear? Kojima is the most overrated game designer I know. Phantom pain was one of my worst purchases ever. I got duped by the stellar reviews, only to get a mediocre game.

    Seriously, I've never seen someone so full of themselves. It got really annoying after about the first 3 missions in TPP.

    I;m sorry, what game are you talking about? MGSV looks amazing and the mechanics are great. Did you play on a 360 with half a controller or something?
