The latest issue of PSM3 is speculating that Metal Gear Solid 5 will be set in 1970s Africa, star Big Boss and – and maybe, just maybe – show the birth of baby Solid Snake.
In a 10-page feature, Metal Gear series expert Dan Dawkins provides forensic analysis of the Metal Gear timeline, while piecing together over 12 months of Kojima’s cryptic tweets, a raft of existing clues and all the ‘Next MGS’ imagery to date.
As well as all that, PSM3 explains why the choice of location and timeline could mean a reprisal for Gray Fox (aka Ninja from MGS on PSone), focuses on the philosophical dispute between Big Boss and Major Zero that inspired the plot of MGS4 and reveals how the game could address modern world, mid-economic-recession, issues.
Finally, they investigate Kojima’s ‘Project Ogre’ and whether it’s the same thing as the ‘next’ MGS and when both games might be out.I know what your thinking ” Oh, and why should you trust Dawkins? ” Because he was the man that correctly predicted the plot, main themes and characters in GTA V months before the official first reveal. As a massive MGS fan myself it’s going to be really interesting if Kojima confirms this! Thanks, CVG.
