Nope.



It was always a distant dream that Konami would ever leave the Metal Gear Solid franchise alone: we always knew that the Pachinko thing would roll around, but there was still some distant, hopeless idea that maybe they'd leave well enough alone and not make any more Metal Gear Sold games now that Hideo Kojima, the creator and mastermind behind the series, had left the company.

Well. No one can really be surprised to learn they were wrong.

Metal Gear: Survive takes place immediately after the events of the fifth game, and will be the first post-Kojima Metal Gear Solid game. Touted as a "co-op survival game" (that has clearly borrowed a few things from Resident Evil), perhaps the smartest thing Konami has done so far is clearly show that the events of this game take place in some strange alternate dimension.

An effort to try to avoid pissing off fans by putting a degree of separation from the events of the main games? Or just a way to slap a recognizable IP on an otherwise unrelated game? It doesn't matter. Not really. The trailer is fresh and it's already gotten over 12 thousand dislikes on Youtube, at time of writing, and when it's published I'd wager it'd be more than that.

I bet the one thing that would stop this trailer from beating out the latest Call of Duty trailer for "most unliked gaming video on YouTube" is the size of their respective fan-bases.

Still, it's coming, and it'll be here next year, so... we'll have to see what to make of it then. it's not impossible it won't suck.

...Not terribly likely, but not IMPOSSIBLE.
