  1. Just remembered Metal Gear Survive is a thing. Bloody hell Konami, you are idiots...

      I still don't get the anger over that. It was announced less than a year after the release of MGS5. Too early for a brand new game.

      It's just a bad idea really. Zombies are really overdone now.

      I didn't want to remember that.

      Everything is wrong with the game. It does not even fit anywhere in Metal Gear canon, zombies would be the last thing on Kojima's mind. That's one in many problems.

      Survive is just a reminder of how bad The Phantom Pain was.  I honestly don't know why Konami are even bothering. They've alienated most of the Metal Gear fanbase. They have their successful pachinko machine business in Japan. Why even bother with stupid spin-off's. If they want to make money then remaking MGS1, 2 & 3 using the Fox Engine would be far more profitable.

      Who cares about canon, it's a spinoff.

      And let's not forget that this is a series with ghosts, men filled with bees, lizard men, and most importantly zombies.

      I get people being disinterested since zombies are overdone (I have no interest either), but the level anger was crazy.

      Nobody played MGS3 because there was a guy who could conjure machineguns from bees - it was a single boss fight in a series arguably already known for wacky boss fights since MGS2 if not earlier (if we're counting Vamp, Fortune and Solidus together). In Survive it's practically the sole hook of the whole game, and for every indication it's coming at the expense of basic staples of the franchise in the process. So in a way, not unlike what Boom did for the Sonic franchise.

      ...also what's this about Survive being a spinoff? I haven't heard anything about that.

      My argument isn't that these things were the hook, it's that zombies aren't too crazy for the franchise.

      What else would it be but a spinoff??

    8. Blacklightning

      They weren't too crazy because they weren't the hook. You don't see anyone complaining about MGS2 just because it had one vampire in it.

      That has nothing to do with whether or not they're too out there for the Metal Gear lore.
