I might be wrong and stray a far in my own predictions about the ghost skull that he is Gene from the portable ops. Now, when I’m watching the new trailer that is from E3, I think it might not be him.
Anyway, the trailer above is from the E3 last week and whether or not you have seen the trailer, you should give it another round as I have. It is astounding how Kojima could make a long-run of a single game that define the next-gen games every time. It’s like watching a movie.. hmm~
There are still many people who can’t get over the fact that Snake’s voice has been changed and this is being confirmed by Kojima and Hayter himself. This is the video :
In my own words, I think that Kojima should’ve contacted Hayter and talked with him in personal that Hater won’t be in that game, dude have been in that series for more than 15 years now. It’s rather impossible for certain fans to swallow it. But I’m not.
I’m entirely put myself in a side in voting for Kiefer Sutherland’s voice in the new upcoming Metal Gear Solid Game. Why? For a number of reasons that I could extract to, Snake is changing and growing old.. I know that the event of Ground Zero takes place rather a short interval of time from the Peace Walker event, but the Idea of actor voice-changing is ever more confirmed that Snake will be in coma state for over 9 years. Surely he must be getting a new, weak and less huskier voice than his younger state.
But, get this.. there might be a later Metal Gear Solid game. Fans have speculated that either remaking the ‘ol Metal Gear 1 or continues Solid Snake saga and ultimately ends his life. I like the idea of remaking Metal Gear game rather than continues with Solid Snake saga after Guns of the Patriots event, I mean.. think about that.. that guy has only about a year or 2 living on and war is over.. there’s not much we can play with Solid Snake anymore and it’s like playing The Sims but you could only control him for 9 days with the limited options of CQC random people on the street or Codec pranks to Hal and playing death.. which actually won’t come so long.
The retcons are strong with the upcoming Metal Gear Solid game and boy do I know that Kojima loves ‘em. Here are some points that fans have speculated from the trailer
Eli is Liquid Snake.
This is the game which set apart Master Miller and Big Boss.
Big Boss becomes a demon, or a monster.. or whatever bad descriptive that you could use from the dictionary.
The girl with the Peace Package is Paz.
Here’s the detail for Eli is Liquid Snake that I’ve stole from the internet
In MGS 1 near the end Liquid talks about how he and Snake are the only surviving clones from the octuplets of the les enfant terrible project and that he met big boss in the middle east (where mgs5 is taking place)
Could Eli be short for Eliab, eldest of 8 sons in the biblical story … youngest son David (solid snakes real name) went on to rule (snake was the last survivor, and that story is also relative to the middle east)
Big Boss however does become a madmen as he was indicated by his older partner or anyone that has known him for a long time including Master Miller in Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake that claims Big Boss has somewhat becoming a monster and derail from his initial ideals. I don’t think I should explain why Master Miller is then becomes an enemy in the eye of Big Boss.. the facts itself is self-explanatory if you’ve played the previous Metal Gear game or just read the wiki, Miller is working for the patriots.. plain and simple.
I was quite surprise seeing most of the fans was arguing the validity of the girl with a surgical cut in her abdomen in extracting the peace package isn’t Paz. I mean, how many flat-chest character are there in Metal Gear games? If this aren’t elicit enough.. then observe back her body curvature and the colours of her hair.
One thing to note is that, Kojima really did his research on Black Humour.. Peace Package in Paz. Man~
Anyway, the only theory and speculation that is quickly put-off is that Eli is Liquid Snake. Why? Because for starter, Liquid Snake’s original hair colour is brunette and not blonde. Somewhat the same as Big Boss’s and Solid Snake but is then bleached by the heat sun of Middle east during the Gulf War, but the unconfirmed history in the Wiki mentions that Liquid has been put on service since the age of 13.
The other evidence that supports Eli is Liquid Snake is his arrogant display and the fang of “Jackal” as he wore as a necklace. Also, the caption in the trailer “A youth who cursed his fate”. I’m pretty sure, who have played MGS 1 would’ve known what this means.
Liquid Snake in MGS1 literally spending his screen time on the game bitching about his genes and destiny and how he hates it.
P/S: I might be updating Metal Gear news from time to time from now on.. damn~ waiting for this game to be released is heart-throbbing every day. Why isn’t there a specific release date for this. Sigh~
