Stealthy patch adds Quiet to Metal Gear Solid V playable character roster

quiet

Metal Gear Solid V was a very good game, right up until it wasn’t. I know I say that a lot, but I really enjoyed sneaking my way around Afghanistan and the Angola-Zaire border region. And then I finished Chapter 1, and realised what an absolute load of wank the whole story was – especially given that it didn’t really come to a satisfying conclusion.

Anyway, after a year of inactivity with MGS V, Konami’s released a stealthy patch that let’s you play the game’s multiplayer component as Quiet. If you’ve forgotten, Quiet is the mute, scantily clad sniper you work with as a mission companion. She’s fast, seems to move using magic, and nails a mean headshot – things you can now do while protecting your FOB and invading others’.

She’s still wearing skimpy clothing, with no option to change it (even though you could give her other clothing in the main game). While I have nothing against half naked women, even in games, I feel like the minor storm that accompanied Quiet’s reveal was mostly justified. Nobody would really dress like that as a sniper, nor would they wear so little as an active participant in war or espionage. I even remember Kojima himself calling out those who questioned her clothing and said it was there purely for male gaze. He said “…once you recognize the secret reason for her exposure, you will feel ashamed of your words & deeds.”

When I found out why she just had to be so skimpily dressed, I proper laughed out loud. She barely wears clothing because she breathes through her skin, using photosynthesis to absorb air, water, and nutrients. It’s silly, and laughable, and barely justification. I mean, if you want to have a semi-naked super sniper woman in your game, then say so; the convoluted justification was completely convoluted hogwash.

Anyway, the new update also adds a few Online Development items, as well as difficulty levels for event FOBS. Mostly, it adds the semi-naked super sniper lady.

    Kojima is so bloody over-rated.

      I said the same of Richie Blackmore until I was cruelly educated on his early influence with Deep Purple. For some reason I always mixed up Def Leopard with those guys 😉

      You obviously haven’t played any open world game made by ubisoft.

          If all you’re concerned about is the variation of the game world then I can understand why you didn’t like mgs v, but the reason it got high review scores is because it has some of the best gameplay around.

            Yeah I had zero issue with gameplay was fun for sure, but that was definetly not enough to keep me interested in the game there was absolutely no variety that’s what turned me off the game…had so much fun at the beginning but then it just gotten so boring quickly.

            Yeah the irony is definitely there, but I haven’t personally played AC origins so I didn’t want to make assumptions about it. The older AC games are basically carbon copies of each other though, with some minor differences.
