Here's the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 trailer for real this time
by Brett Makedonski

We already brought this to you once this morning, but someone wasn't a big fan of it being up already. So, they got it removed from YouTube. But, now the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer is up again, and it'll stay up this time. Promise.

If you've already gotten a chance to watch it, there's nothing wrong with double dippin'. It's a damn fine trailer.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 2014 trailer is grim photo
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 2014 trailer is grim
by Alessandro Fillari



It seems Konami couldn't wait till the morning. The E3 trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has appeared online, and it's one hell of a tease for whats to come.

In the last few months, series creator Hideo Kojima shared some details about what to expect from this trailer -- claiming that it would be light on action and more about the struggles and trials the characters will go through in the game. And he was definitely right about that. This piece here is pretty intense and gives us a look at just how far KojiPro will push the upcoming Metal Gear game.

For more on MGSV and other titles at E3 2014, be sure to check back with Destructoid during the week.

Here's some box-centric Metal Gear Solid V footage

Leading up to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's full-blown E3 showing next week, designer Hideo Kojima has shared about a minute and a half of new footage. It's mostly just Big Boss running around in a cardboard box -- ...

Sony looking at Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct Metal Gear Solid film

Word of a film adaption of Metal Gear Solid has been circulating since 2006. Almost a decade later, and nothing concrete has really come of it yet. That's more or less par for the course when it comes to movies based on ...

Revol Mini Solid Snake figure packs a smaller punch

Solid Snake has never been this adorable. Well, I don't know if the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini, qualifies as adorable, but this particular figure cuts it for me. The Solid Snake Revol Mini figure comes packing excellent d...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform exclusive DLC will eventually see a full release

I really enjoyed Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for what it was, and despite many people calling it a "short" game, I've clocked around 30 hours so far -- far more than the vast majority of regular releases. Part of ...

There's a mo-cap dog in this Ground Zeroes making-of video

I adore watching VFX studio reels, so when I heard that Konami had released one for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I just couldn't help myself. I had to click. And here we are. At three minutes in length, the video is wo...

Hideo Kojima unboxes Big Boss in Paris game shop

Very Quick Video Tips: A guide to all the Ground Zeroes XOF patches photo
Very Quick Video Tips: A guide to all the Ground Zeroes XOF patches
by Chris Carter

Both Sony and Microsoft have their own platform-exclusive missions for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and you'll have to do a bit of legwork to unlock them. Basically, you'll need to grab all nine XOF patches hidden throughout the main mission, then complete the main objectives.

Here in this video I'll show you the location of every patch, and pause for a second to also show it on the iDroid map. If you're wondering how to get the second patch at the start of the video, just go prone, and press in the left stick to roll from side to side constantly until it falls out.

XOF patch progress only saves at checkpoints -- so if you get a game over, you may need to recollect a few.

So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare? photo
So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare?
by Chris Carter

As you may have heard, both Sony (PS3, PS4) and Microsoft (Xbox 360, Xbox One) have their own piece of exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This isn't a pre-order bonus mind you -- it's built into every copy of the game.

Naturally this can lead to a choice between the two, so let's take a look at what you're getting.

Here's everything you can do in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes photo
Here's everything you can do in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
by Chris Carter

As you may have gleaned from my review, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not for everyone. It only features one area, very little story, and it's only a glimpse of what's to come in Phantom Pain.

But that doesn't mean it isn't a ton of fun to play, and there's plenty to do outside of the relatively short story mission.

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes photo
Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
by Chris Carter

Ever since I randomly picked up a conspicuous looking Metal Gear NES catridge in 1990, I've been enjoying Snake's adventures. I've collected every Metal Gear game released in the US, and while I'm busy waiting for the next entry, I'm keeping up with the encyclopedic amount of data that fills the series' lore -- which is a task all on its own.

And wait we shall, as Phantom Pain is still completely up in the air regarding its release date, leaving Kojima and crew to satiate our needs with Ground Zeroes. But even as a fan, there are a few shortcomings that make me hesitant to call Zeroes a "must have" franchise entry, despite how fun it might be.

Infiltrating Outer Heaven: A tour of the Kojima Productions studio photo
Infiltrating Outer Heaven: A tour of the Kojima Productions studio
by Max Scoville

While in Japan to preview Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I was taken on a tour of the Kojima Productions offices. In theory, there's a certain magic to getting to go behind the scenes of where videogames get made. In reality, videogames are usually made in regular offices, with desks and cubicles, and because of this, studio tours can sometimes be a bit dry.

Thankfully, that wasn't the case here.
