Who else thinks Metal Gear Survive is going to flop?
Seems like an insult to the franchise if you ask me.

I heard about it a little over week ago, It seems almost like an insult to Metal Gear to me. It looks like they are just capitalizing on it to make money, and thy're just copying the survival-horroer genre it seems. I think it's going to almost kill Konami to be honest.

It will be interesting to see how the game is handled. They're using the Fox Engine to drive the game and the mechanics are similar to what was used in Metal Gear Solid V, so the fan boys will run to it again. That's no big deal. It's like every few months a new Madden is trotted out, or more Call of Duty, and everyone drops their fifty bucks without complaints.

The other aspect you have to look at is the game is being marketed more as a side mission and not a full-play game. I've read a few publications that say it isn't going to be full priced since it doesn't have the same depth and breadth of the other titles.

Will it flop? Maybe but the name is enough to encourage sales.

Will it kill Konami? Absolutely not. This is a tiny blip on their radar and they're just putting it out there to test the market for less-expensive, under-developed mini-games. That's what this is. No more.

They're going to (Metal Gear) Survive this game, no problem.

Konami deserves the backlash. They let Hideo Kojima go(the man responsible for Metal Gear),did not acknowledge or allow him to attend a industry event,and now they are coming out with this piece of crap. There are already way too many zombie games out there. This is going to fail harder than Kanye West at a self control course.

I agree with both of you. Konami did a real **** move to Hideo Kajima and they deserve to flop.

Ghostbear1111 : The thing is while this game on its own probably wouldn't do much to Konami if anything at all they already dug their own grave months ago now. Konami has an extremely bad rep now due to how they treated Hideo Kojima, perhaps worse than any other major video game company at the moment. Since any Metal Gear fans will likely be aware that Hideo Kojima isn't working on this game, most will probably skip on even buying it unless it gets really good reviews. Partly because fans are going to be skeptic about the game before its even come out but also because they'd likely want to avoid supporting Konami in any way.

Zlinqx : Well, sure, of course they treated Hideo like garbage and they aren't popular. I understand that and I'm not going to pick up the game at any point.

What I am saying is that, stand alone, Metal Gear Survive isn't going to be the nail in the coffin for the company. All the other stuff adds up, absolutely. You're right in that they are in trouble for their treatment of a power player.

But, look at how Electronic Arts treats their programmers and their staff. They dump on those folks all the time.

And EA keeps churning out money makers, one title at a time.

I can see Konami going away in the not too distant future. But based solely on the performance of one game? Nah.

I really don't care about what they did to Kojima as long as they make a good game.

Metal Gear for NES wasn't made by Kojima. Last I checked, it was still a great game. As was Snake's Revenge (also not made by Kojima).

I am sure there will inevitably be "reviews" just trashing the game saying how it sucks because Kojima wasn't involved.
So, I would like to play the game before I judge it. Its built on the Fox Engine, so we know the combat (maybe stealth?) is going to work well.

Let's be honest though... Castlevania is Konami's best IP anyway. :3

Oh, I do, big time!! They're doing what they did to Castlevania, now to metal gear. They only want to make money be making it so that it's another generic game of a genre that's popular today, and give it the name of one of their legendary IPS so that more people will be attracted to it.. It's going to fail commercially SO BAD, because hundreds of people aren't okay with this and there's already tons of backlash, with the like to dislike ratio on it's reveal trailer on Youtube being heavily in the latter.

Vanelan : That's your opinion, and I respectfully disagree. Metal Gear is my favorite franchise from Konami because of the characters and stories. I don't want Survive, because it's taking a man's  engine that he worked hard on, to make ANOTHER zombie game.

Juliaisme123 : If it had another name and used the Fox Engine, would you be so critical of a 2 minute trailer?
We really don't know anything about this game... and besides, Kojima was crazy and most of his characters' personalities were ham-fistedly jammed in to fit into his absurd imaginary world.

Vanelan : Yes I would. The Fox engine can do incredible things (as shown by P.T.), and Konami is currently using it for a Pachinko game based on one of my favorite games, and Metal Gear Survive. I find this to be a joke, and I can't imagine what Hideo thinks of the company right now, other than pure hatred.

Vanelan : Parodius comes second. Seriously, I'd rather have a Parodius game than a metal gear game..
But yeah, Castlevania hasn't had a game in a while, they need to use that. They're essentially treating it like Nintendo treats Metroid...

TheAnonyBrony : There is absolutely no way for it to NOT flop, as far as I can tell. Konami screwed up, there's no way they can redeem themselves.

(unless they make a new Parodius game.)

I do,  I watched the whole concept through Reviewtechusa's Youtube channel, and to be honest it sounds completely retarded and it sounds like they're trying to mlik the cow.

People who don't know about the MGS series may find some appeal, but to the vast majority of fans this thing won't cut it.

Start a petition to get one made! :3

SuperCrash64 : I think that's where the problem is. If it REALLY bothers you that its called  "Metal Gear" just take a piece of masking tape and put it over the title and TRY the game... who knows, you might even like it.

Vanelan : I'm tending to agree with you the most. If Konami makes a good game, then yes, they deserve credit. But Metal Gear survive is going to suck, nobody wants another Zombie Survival.

TheAnonyBrony : I think VG247 says it best. Everyone is complaining that this isn't Metal Gear Solid but as the title says, its not. Its Metal Gear Survive. 
It would appear to be "another zombie survival," but what if Konami does it better than every other one before it?
Its being called stealth survival and I for one want to see how that plays out. 

Besides, Metal Gear Acid and Metal Gear Rising aren't Metal Gear Solid and those are great games in their own respects, even if they don't follow the Metal Gear storylines.

Honestly, it seems like a cash grab with the MGS name attached to it. If it ends up being decent, then I might be interested in it...however, considering that it's Konami we're talking about, I don't trust them to make a decent game out of this. I'm expecting microtransactions, and I'll be surprised if there aren't any.

Ghostbear1111 : Oh for sure it's probably not going to make it much worse. I was more just trying to make the point that it's not like they have much going for them right now. While other companies like EA and Ubisoft have treated employees horrible none of it got as much media exposure as this and it's dealing with the guy who is more or less synonymous with the metal gear series and one of the most beloved video game designers today, which is why I think Konami is being hit much more hard than any of those companies. Take away metal gear and the only real big franchise they have is PES which nowadays usually can't compete with Fifa in terms of sales. 

I'm also pretty sure that most people who are hardcore Fifa/Madden fans don't really care much for who makes the games, nor do most really tend to keep up with what's going on in the video game world. They just want to play the latest soccer/football game out there. So EA treating their employees badly is less likely to have an impact on sales.
