In this edition of The Codec Call Andy, Matt and Cev get together to discuss their thoughts about what will happen in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain based on the 2013 Red Band and 2014 E3 trailers.  The suggestion came from @BrandonKirzeder, so you know who to thank for the idea of making these crazy theories public…


WARNING:  May contain mild traces of spoil for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and references to N-Sync.


We cover:

  • What do we know about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain?
  • What can we glean/wildly speculate about, based on the trailers?
  • Will the game be released on 8th June?
  • Is Quiet the sniper, really Chico with a sex change?
  • Who is Ishmael?
  • Will Solidus feature?
  • Will the protagonist be a 4 year old Raiden (probably not, right?!)?
  • Should we travel back in time and stop N-Sync?


If you want to cross-reference our ramblings, here are the two trailers we’re talking about:
