You know that amazing feeling – the one where you put on a pair of old pants and find long forgotten money in one of the pockets… or something along those lines? That’s kind of how I feel about Metal Gear Online. I saw the the gameplay demo a few weeks ago, got hyped, completely forgot about it, and only just now realised that the online component to The Phantom Pain will be out as soon as tomorrow, on October the 6th.

Sadly, if you’re a PC Master Race user, your version of online will only be available in 2016. Here’s what everybody else can look forward to playing though when Metal Gear Online launches tomorrow:

Being a South African citizen, I worry about my Internet usage. Uncapped isn’t really uncapped, meaning I have to monitor my usage like a hawk. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about having to download dozens of gigglebytes when Metal Gear Online launched, because let’s be honest, modern day games take up a crap load of space.

Thankfully the download clocks in at less than a gigabyte according to MGOLeague (via VG247)

I presume this small download requirement is thanks to Metal Gear Online making use of many of the same assets found in the single player component of The Phantom Pain.  I’m pretty sure a number of updates will follow (optimisations, balancing, etc), but at least nobody has to endure a painfully large download from the get-go.

My only other concern now is the lag issue. I’m very hopeful that Metal Gear Online is decently playable. If not, well, you’ll find me sobbing in that corner, in my cardboard box. I’m super excited to Fulton actual people, rather than AI for a change.

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

    If you sob in the corner while inside your cardboard box it’ll mess up the box, Silly Snake.

      But sticking a poster of a half dressed Anime pop idol on the side doesn’t? 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        He’s a DOTA player, it’s what they do.

        • oVg

          lol

  • Hammersteyn
  • HairyEwok

    I’ll patiently wait for our beloved PC version, It’s not like the game is being left in the hands of Konami… Oh wait.

  • oVg

    Cant get enough of this flipping game.

    85% 160hours and built a Nuke. AND NO IM NOT GOING TO DISMANTLE IT.

    Once you get the Silenced Sniper Tranquilizer rifle its game over. I wish it had some slow mo bullet time like Sniper Elite. That would have been the Chery ontop of a cherry.

    • HairyEwok

      Well the game can be modded, so just wait patiently, I’m sure there’s a modder out there that has the same feels as you that can make it happen

      • oVg

        Knowing the PC modders they will make the darn Rifle shoot out D-Dogs.

        • HairyEwok

          Slowly-mo D-dog shots…. It’s a win win.

          • oVg

            In a bikini

          • HairyEwok

            The Green D-bikini.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’m not refreshing the page for fear of you having posted a picture of The D in his green mankini.

          • HairyEwok

            Come on, I’m not that evil.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Uh huh. Sorry, but I saw that documentary about how Ewok terrorists ambushed unsuspecting Imperial soldiers who were trying to build a school.

          • HairyEwok

            It wasn’t a school, they were building a child slave labour cocaine lab ok. Why do you think those troopers can’t shoot for shit. It’s because they sniff the stuff the whole day.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            In a first for PC gaming, modders will actually ADD clothes to a female character.

          • oVg

            Oh shit, Quiet is in for a treat 😛

  • oVg

    All I need now is my R&D team on 60. They are on 53. I need that Stealth Suite so I can go back and S rank.

  • (Umar) Must be Cipher

    I would scream with excitement, but the parasites might kill me and I’m all out of Wolbachia….
    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • oVg

      SPOILERS 😛

      Umar what ending did you get because mine was fantastic. I finished mission 45 before doing 46. Nothing wrong with the ending it ties in to operation Intrude, the start of the 1994 game WITH A COOL TWIST that still stands to the 19 year lore.

      • (Umar) Must be Cipher

        didn’t read your comment lol, didn’t complete it yet sorry lol 80 odd hours in and not yet done :/ Just finished Chapter 1 though. I like what they did with Skullface, and I understand why Kojima did what he did with the character, seeing as the theme is phantom pain. I would’ve liked a showdown, but the Sahalanthropus battle more than made up for that.

        • oVg

          RinceThis told me that you finished it and hated it. Must be somebody else.

          The ending is not as bad as everybody makes it out to be.

          • (Umar) Must be Cipher

            Naa, nowhere near done lol I’m not hating the story as everyone else did…I kind of like it. Either way, the story has done nothing to hamper my enjoyment so eh, not too fussed. Very glad to hear you don’t think the ending was bad.

          • oVg

            I think half the players are under the age of 18 and picked it up for that big red 18 sign on the front of the box.

            If you have been playing the franchise the last 20 years you will enjoy TWISTS more. I face palmed a few times once I put 2 and 2 together.

            You just needed to have played Snake Eater and MGS1 to appreciate it.

          • (Umar) Must be Cipher

            Hopefully I’ll get there soon. Trying not to rush but damn I wanna see the ending lol I’ll hit you up once I finish it then we can have a chat ^_^

          • oVg

            cool

  • What’s in MGO, reality ? Naaaah, invisi-button (“stealth cammo”) rules all. CoD style shield kill and possibly weapon upgrades that make them do more damage, probably non-lethal when fired from the hip. Star wars technology and magical Teleporting…
    Another “military” shit parade from Duh I Have No Clue game productions.
