So last night watching The VGA's on Spike, pretty much the biggest surprise for me and trailer that made me most excited was something called The Phantom Pain.

I found the trailer on YouTube before it gets pulled down.

I immediately Googled it, and the internet seemed just as shocked and surprised as I was, there was no immediate information when it was first revealed last night.
This morning, looks like they got some speculation about the game and its creators, and that is it is the new game for Metal Gear Solid franchise from Kojima.

Yeah seems all signs are pointing to it is MGS5, either way as I said looks pretty damn good, and I do think the trailer is in-engine, as there are some obvious jaggies in certain areas, so looks good. I am also leaning toward it being a next gen title as well. Reveal it in a mysterious way, get hype built up, then say oh yeah, by the way it is a launch title for a new platform. Maybe not, but considering this is the first announce of it, and all rumors are pointing to new consoles, at least from MS, holiday of 2013, then I would say there is at least a distinct chance.

I like the idea that Ground Zeros and The Phantom Pain combine to make MGS5 in the same way Tanker/Big Shell make MGS2.

I'm not buying into the idea that Kojima is developing two mainline MGS titles at once, especially with such similar assets used in this video and what we've seen of Ground Zeros.

That NeoGAF thread is insane. So many perceptive people online...

Though it seems to me that The Phantom Pain is at least linked to Ground Zeroes in some way. The solders' equipment, the facial scar on the character, the guy with his face wrapped in bandages, and so fourth. I also have a pretty hard time believing that Kojima Productions has two different full-fledged (that is, non-portable) MGS games being worked on at the same time. Of course, I have so many questions floating around in my head (most of which revolve around that hook/arm).

A lot of people in the NeoGAF thread were saying that they were disappointed or bored by the trailer, but I personally thought it was extremely well done. Definitely succeeded in sending chills down my spine in a few places.

Gamers are dedicated folk. Unfortunately they sometimes use their dedication to be abusive, childish, and arrogant; but hey, sometimes it is for cool stuff.
