Snake has the cutest companion in MGS V

2 min read

Diamond dog is mans best friend

It wasn’t enough for Call of Duty: Ghosts to give you a canine companion, now Metal Gear Solid is doing it too. But this Diamond Dog is a well rounded character; no only do we get puppy love, we get the coolest thing ever – a wolf with an eye patch.

In a new gameplay video for Metal Gear Solid V out of the Tokyo Game Show, we are shown off this video showing how Snake finds his companion, and then how Diamond Dog or DD grows up to become a useful companion:

Like Quiet, DD will be able to help Big Boss out on missions. While Konami has focused on Quiet, a scantily clad female character who can cover Snake from vantage points he can’t reach, I’ll be curious what role DD can fulfill. I suppose a dog/wolf won’t be as suspicious if seen, although I’m sure the eye patch will give away the fact that he has an owner. Regardless of his role, Kojima had better not kill off the puppy – I’ve already grown attached to the thing and that was only a four minute video. Imagine how much I’d love the guy after doing a few missions together.

What other strange and wonderful companions would you like to see in the new MGS V game? Perhaps Snake should have a real live snake as a companion. Stranger things have happened in MGS games, right? It always feels like nothing highlights humanity more than an animal companion; if that wolf sacrifices himself for the Big Boss, I might just shed a tear while playing.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

    “Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg… and my arm… even my fingers. The body I’ve lost… the comrades I’ve lost… won’t stop hurting… It’s like they’re all still there. You feel it, too, don’t you? I’m gonna make them give back our past.”

    The whole time you were talking about Quiet & DD I was getting confused which character was which.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “DD, you have to rescue Snake, he’s fallen down the well!”
    “Fuck Snake, I’m a lone wolf!”

    Maybe now we can have a wolf howl instead of someone yelling “Snake! SNAKE! SNAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKEEEEE!”

  • An eye patch… Erm…

  • So does the dog spend the majority of its time walking in circles?

  • This kindda makes me sad. I wanted this game to be adult, not Mickey Mouse Pluto silly.

      It has always been Anime GOOFY. Hideo Kojima is on a new batch of drugs and hopefully there are no talking monkeys this time. Just flying goats and Wolves smoking cigars.

      • And boxes. Don’t forget the boxes…
