[Here's the second half of Dtoid community blogger Bory Borham's two-part analysis of the new Metal Gear Solid trailers. Spoilers for MGS and also Moby Dick abound, so turn back now if that's not your thing! Click here to check out Part 1 if you missed it! --Mr Andy Dixon]
What lies ahead is a pretty heavy duty analysis of the trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If haven't played every Metal Gear game up to this point, then you may find yourself experiencing bouts of extreme spoilage. Bearing witness to such Metal Gear spoilers may in fact rot your eyes, ears, brain, and/or very existence.
You've been warned!
Just when you thought you were safe from the catch all excuse of "it's nano-machines", we have entered the slightly less flashy era of "it's cybernetic"s. Maybe, if we are lucky, there will be a 60 minute cutscene where Big Boss fights off an army of soldiers with nothing but a cyber-ear.
This is the first big boy job that Mantis got, unless you count burning down your entire village like a total d-bag or straight up murdering your dad as jobs. Either way, Mantis should be with the KGB until the collapse of the USSR. Odd thing about the troops following him, is that they look a lot like the SAS. Is it merely a coincidence, or is this a sign of cooperation from the East and West against Big Boss? Whatever the case, it looks like our main man Big Boss has himself stuck in the middle of another Cold War mess.
Why would Big Boss suddenly be worried about Volgin, though? Shouldn't Volgin be dead? Maybe. Maybe not. It was a nasty fire, that's for sure. But nobody ever checked his body.
Unless, of course, somebody is Decoy Octopus. Or EVERYBODY IS DECOY OCTOPUS!
