Comic 111: Metal Gear Barely Surviving

So we're surprisingly going to get a (non-pachinko) new Metal Gear game soon... a zombie survival game of all things. Because no one's sick of zombies yet...

Too soon, man. Too soon... Lol X'D

Rip to all those awesome franchises though... *bows head* :'D

Yeah... :c In a way, the zombies almost seem like a metaphor

Oh, no no no no no, Konami... :(

She really can't handle her franchises well...

When the news came out I am not sure what to make of that lol

by Zanreo at 19th Aug 2016, 7:03 PM

Me neither, I certainly didn't expect this of all things..

I have to admit, this is both sad and very entertaining situation. If Konami was the only one who did this, it would be understendable but... they're not :D Resident evil 7 will not be the end of it I'm afraid, and different companies will do the same shit for as some time

by Zanreo at 19th Aug 2016, 7:09 PM

Yeah... though Resident Evil has always been a horror franchise (and has been trying to return to the games' roots lately) so at least it seems more appropiate

Castlevania has its own tombstone. Tombstone. Maybe it will be resurrected in 100 years :D

Yeah. Probably because of the sales report and the fact that they are still making most out of normal games. They are trolling now though. I have not played much of the MGS games but zombies? You can fit zombies into anything these days...

Cannot say yet but this is probably going to be the final eff you to the fans. Sulking is sulking.

by Zanreo at 19th Aug 2016, 7:10 PM

Indeed, it just doesn't really fit and seems like a weird choice for the series... And the whole "zombie game" thing kinda died out years ago, so if that's what you're trying to make money on?

by NeilKapit at 20th Aug 2016, 3:41 AM

And since it involves wormholes and zombies as an explicit setting rather than an easter egg (or even a bit of generalized weirdness, as seen with the series' flamenco vampires, memory-card-reading psychics, sapient hand transplants, bikini snipers, etc.), so we can presumably kiss the political satire goodbye. Without Kojima and his inimitable genius, Metal Gear is just another dudebro military fetish game.

I am really feeling the phantom pain.

by Zanreo at 20th Aug 2016, 4:20 AM

Yeah... if the trailer and concept is anything to go by, Konami has no idea how to handle this series

by melaredblu at 20th Aug 2016, 8:22 AM

Why beat a dead horse when you can franchise it instead?

by Zanreo at 20th Aug 2016, 10:06 PM

Seems to be a common trend for the industry, really...

by Milk at 22nd Aug 2016, 1:28 AM

This may seem mean spirited but I hope it bombs just to teach them a lesson...

by Zanreo at 22nd Aug 2016, 1:52 AM

Oh, me too...
