    I was literally about to click the new topic icon to make this thread. :v Sounds like they're waiting until the next console generation to come out, which would be good.

    Being a console game from the getgo MGS isn't really a game that would benefit too much from anything outside of being a good, optimized port anyway imo

    Though hopefully they do it better than the previous games

    It's set in the future and his casket was programmed to adapt to his personality, therefore allowing it to run around with guns and be stealthy. Hiding in a box is much easier now as well.

       Snake didn't die though? After the MGS4 credits it showed him as still alive and how he made the choice to live his last years in peace or something.

       Yes, he didn't die, he's just dying. There is plenty that could still be explored, and there is no telling what Metal Gear Rising will bring up, given how it now takes place after Metal Gear Solid 4.

    Of course everything they have under requirements blows 99% of us out the water. Skills that most of us, even if learned, may not perfect to a AAA game standard.

    I thought more along either The Boss' rise to fame OR post WWII that lead to her 1964 mission.

    Though it'll probably be the Raiden game i hoped would kind of... Tell us how the fuck they saved Sunny!

    Solid isn't dead. As I said, Rising takes place after MGS4 and opens up an entire new set of possibilities.

    Anything involving The Boss is unlikely, doesn't fit their model. Also, Raiden is Metal Gear Rising.

    Fits their model fine. So far it's just Mentor turns bad, student kills mentor, gets internal conflict for years. over a run of respectively 3 and 5 games. The boss would probably fit there perfectly.

    that PC port still gives me nightmares

    if it's nice and proper like MGS1 (And they release a demo showing so)

    actually it's more in the likes of 3D vectors, TNB frames (Tangent, Normal, Binormal), flux through 3D planes, 3D path optimization (what's the steepest path up this spacecurve), with gradient vectors, etc.

    If this is Outer Haven with the sensibility of MGS3 instead of 4, this is going to own like shit.

    There's still plenty of stories that haven't been done about snake, where it gets tricky is fitting into a timeline of events that allows them be to epic in proportion. Every MGS conforms to a basic structure that works well. It wouldn't be very epic for example, if we played as snake during his days in the first gulf war.

    Not really, no.

    Anything done with snake continuing on from MGS4 would be dumb. Yes he doesn't kill himself in the end, but he's still an old man. The only way you could make that work is by some retarded nano machine based retcon in which snakes gets young again!! :) which is stupid for very obvious reasons.

    Rising was canceled, and the new Rising developed by Platinum games has nothing to do with the original series. Its sort of like the new DMC game coming, its a "what if".

    Although, I wish they made the original Rising true. It was so elegant and nice looking.

    Edited:

    MGS2 hahahaha

    that PC port still gives me nightmares.
    I still have that, MGS2: Substance for PC and for PS2. Bought it later because its just soo much better on the PS2 and I wanted all the titles on it.
    It was my first true PC game along with GTA3. It was weird because it worked in some PCs, and in others, it didn't run at all. Some it had graphic problems even though it was a "super computer" for such an old game and had its settings on high, others it ran just a bit slow but beautiful.
    Controls were a mess though. No pressure controls didn't let you aim the AK/M4 to hold them up without killing them and you had to set them all up from scratch.

    I need to conserve my PS2 in a vault with no elemental disturbances so it works forever.

    Kojima has stated before they have multiple concepts for the Cobras during WW2. It's either going to be that, Big Boss in Vietnam or a re-telling of the MG games from MSX.

    I'm still waiting for a game where you play as Frank Jaeger/Grey Fox at any point prior to Shadow Moses. His entire history is worthy of being told he's that damn interesting.

    yup, I remember that

    also, mouse input always failed for me, so I ended up having to use the arrow keys for everything.

    I'm too cheap to buy a gamepad.

    Although I would like to see the Cobras during WW2, I don't know how those would fit well, and MGS just isn't MGS without some sort of Snake in it. Maybe The Boss would "replace" him well though, and we would start with her being a rookie or something below her Boss rank and then in the end of the game, she would be awarded the rank of Boss and Snake would have a small cameo where he would start his training with her, either in a movie like in the end, or maybe some part in the game where you side with him or even like those "mysterious phone calls" at the end of each game. Although, I would LOVE to see the MSX games in current gen technology, and the stories for those games (including Frank's story) are worthy of "remakes" (if you can call them that, since they would be built from the ground up based on the story) Soo many ideas for everthing... I wish I could be in the team like some intern or anything and just give my 2 cents, even if they wouldn't be used. It would be an honor just to be able to do that for me.

    Edited:

    I never even tried to use the mouse. It was bad enough that I had to stretch my hand to press Num5 to lock first person view on and click on (at the time) huge keyboard arrow keys that needed a hammer to work properly at times. I just bought a gamepad later on and fixed most of my trouble with it. Graphics however got even shittier even if I set them on highest settings.
