The grand daddy of trolling doing what he knows best.
Ah! The Phantom Pain. The pain of missing content. The pain of missing Chapter 3 and the pain of missing guard dogs. You know, for the last few years I have covered a ton of stuff related to Metal Gear Solid 5 on GamingBolt and despite being a fantastic game that totally stands on the merits of its jaw dropping gameplay, The Phantom Pain’s story was nothing short of underwhelming. The game just ends with no context whatsoever and since then players have found loads of secrets and missing content.
Chapter 3 titled Peace is what many are assuming will be released as DLC, which will somehow wrap the disappointingly loose story knots of The Phantom Pain. Given how Hideo Kojima loves to interact with the Metal Gear community by going to great lengths [we are talking about a man who made a fake studio to promote his game, made dummy cutscenes for MGS2 promotional material to keep Raiden’s identity a secret and literally trolled his fanbase for more than a decade], it’s only obvious that he knows what the Metal Gear community is feeling regarding Chapter 3 so Mr. Trolljima tweeted out a few interest tweets which somehow connects with Chapter 3.
Let us begin with the first one. “Bought STAR WARS newspaper vol 3. It got posters of all series produced all over the world,” he tweeted. The image of 3PO can be seen below and there are two connections to The Phantom Pain here. One is the red cyborg arm of 3PO and second, vol 3 which may indicate Chapter 3 or VOL3 cassette tape which has not been found by anyone in The Phantom Pain.
Secondly, he tweeted this. “Watched TRUE DETECTIVE S2E3. Well designed indeed. Fresh to see Rachel McAdams smokes E-cigarette while driving.” Season 2, Episode 3 and e-Cigars…reminds of a certain game…The Phantom Pain?
This may not turn out to be nothing in the end and it might only be Kojima being Kojima. But really at this point…the trolling seems to be too hard.
We will see how it all pans out.
