Only interested because MGSV was the only good game I can think of carrying the modern open world monicker. But I suspect this will have a structure similar to all the other overrated games like Rockstar things, Botw, etc. in the open world dumpster fire.

The open world is the worst part of MGSV. Tedious travel and nothingness in between the actual mission areas. One of the worst open worlds.

You can actually choose where on Sam’s body to put all this stuff. You can load it all up onto his back like a pack mule, but you can also put items in pouches hanging off the backpack, strap them to his arms and legs, or have him hand-carry certain pieces. This will affect his speed, yes, but also his balance. Sam’s center of gravity will be shown in a yellow circle underneath him as you shift things around. As you run through the world, if you make hard left or right turns, he’ll go off-kilter if he’s overburdened, and you’ll need to press the L2 and R2 buttons to shift his weight back so he stays upright.
Goddammit, Kojima.....  I love you! :heartbeat  I can easily see people being turned off by this, but I think it's fucking awesome.  Same feeling I got when the first 3D games would actually show your armor change.

I'm more concerned with Soyny and what they're going to allow Kojima to do/not do. 

Soyny:  "Yeah... we can let Sam get by peeing on things, but not sure we can have that topless lady...."

Kojima:  "There's a reason for that: There's a Strand linked to her clothes and you need to link them in order to connect her past and her future life, if it isn't in, there will be a corruption in the flow of Strands and Beached Things and the game cannot be completed and the story inconsistent...."

Soyny: ".......ok...well, I suppose if...."

Kojima:

No, the open world made it possible to approach your infiltration however you wanted to. It‘s not meant to be open world in the sense that you talk to dumb ass NPCs who tell you about their struggles and make you solve sidequests for them.

Exactly. MGSV succeeded because the point wasn't exploring and it wasn't necessary to shit up the map with lame ass fetchquests. I don't think this game will be mission based like MGSV though.

The game needs to allow for upper decking the toilet as well. Or sitting really far forward so you leave long poop streaks. My immersion demands it.

I feel like there are non-zero odds that this game ends up impressively bad... but I will be there day 1.

I can see it being technically competent and impressive, and completely functional, but with weird navel-gazing gameplay and a non-sensical story.

What if we find out that Konami was actually keeping him from making complete nonsense?

Are we sure it's not? I watched the gameplay demo, and even though it was japanese it seemed like he was picking from an MGS5-like menu.

no idea, I only skipped through the footage. I think they announced a translated stream.

I actually find the walking sim aspects interesting, balancing the weight especially, but the boss fight looked pretty pedestrian, so the combat will probably be a bore.

Walking simulation as a term was meant for trash like Layers of Fear in which you can't interact with anything and the story just happens while you press forward. Even if this didn't have enemies, it would still look like a real simulation game, since you have to calculate shit and interact with or pay attention to the environment. However, I don't know the map looks like it would have interesting enough challenges to overcome.

Yeah i meant "walking sim" in a more literal sense, in this instance, referring to balancing weight, managing gear, finding viable paths etc.
Though i'll say i don't have anything against traditional walking sims on principle, as long as they tell an interesting story and can manage a good pace (something Layers of Fear doesn't do).

I love Kojima’s games and I’m a huge metal gear fan but I’m highly skeptical of a Kojima game without a filter. Once Fukushima left the MG series after Solid 3, Metal Gear series got far worse under Kojima without a filter. That said I love MGSV despite its flaws. I might have to check this out.

Codec conversation:

*Bleep bleep*
Strand: Norm, what do you think about walking simulators?
Norm: Walking... simulators?
Strand: there’s this new type of game where you just walk around and experience a story
Norm: Can love really bloom in a post apocalyptic America?
Strand: being bedridden, walking simulators are my new favorite kind of game. I can put in a walking simulator video game and it’s almost like I’m transported to another, believable reality, where I’m free to get up and move as I please.
Norm: I can see that
Strand: do you ever feel like you are in a walking simulator?
Norm: I don’t really have time for this conversation, I have places to... walk. *Huuurrrm*

I'm curious, but the 40min demo didn't look that puzzling to me.
It seems like you go from A to B to C, like towers in an open world game, trying to avoid the baddies in between, and with the occasional scripted moment.

If MGSV is any indication, the big set pieces (like the WWI battlefield) will probably be sandwiched at the tail end of the game, and very on rails/scripted.

MGSV on PC was  :lawd

It took a whole bunch of other open-world franchises about 3 to 4 years to match or exceed what Kojima had done with the game.
In fact, you could release it today as a new game. It hasn't aged much at all.
