Kojima Goes Full Troll Over The Phantom Pain Chapter 3




/ 4 years ago

The true Phantom Pain of Metal Gear Solid V has proven to be the game’s missing content. The last entry in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, while being a strong contender for Game of the Year, feels rushed once it enters its second chapter, a fact made more plain once owners of the PC version found evidence of cut content, Chapter 3: Peace.

While many suspect that the sparse Chapter 2 and missing Chapter 3 were compromises by series creator Hideo Kojima, forced upon him by an impatient Konami (which would fit with the speculation regarding a feud between the two). The gameplay and agency that it grants the player is phenomenal, while the narrative is lacklustre. The result is, in this humble writer’s opinion, the best game in the Metal Gear Solid series, while simultaneously being the worst Metal Gear Solid game.

Speculation persists that Chapter 3 will be made available as DLC, with many keen for a true resolution to the game, but already fuming at the idea of having to pay for it. Kojima, true to form, knows the score, and he’s sticking it to us.

Two tweets from Kojima yesterday, involving Star Wars, True Detective, and The Killing, seem to be obliquely referencing both The Phantom Pain and third parts:

Volume 3. C3PO with a red arm, much like Venom Snake’s prosthetic.

Episode 3. Rachel McAdams with an E-cigarette, much like Venom Snake’s Phantom Cigar.

No Season 3. That’s it. It’s all over. Let’s go home.

Kojima’s a stinker.
