Was this one a lot less comedic than its precursors?

@GreenGoblin75 You could say that. Still has its moments though. It lacks the super long codec calls, quirky Snake-isms, and many other things. But Kaz alone carries the humor.

Hah, nice description :p

Ummm, bit of a spoiler there with the main character, don't you think?

Regardless, enjoying the game quite a bit at the moment.

@Ovarku Ultimately in all fairness, the game has been out for two weeks and the goal of the site is to be factual. There's not a lot we can do about it.

(I had the identity of the villain in Bayonetta 2 spoiled for me while working on its page, due to the name he was listed under in the credits. C'est la vie.)

@NCZ I suggest simply putting both under Big Boss considering they both have the same voice actor and everything.

This is kind of late, but Jim Piddock has said he will not return as Zero. Apparently they offered him an insultingly low amount of money or something.

You know, it is kindnof sad how this is supposed to be the series' swan song and almost all of the established cast is just gone.

@Nightmare Crusher I know, right? Solid Snake is just not Solid Snake without David Hayter. He really brought that character to life to the point I couldn't imagine anyone else voicing him…. guess I was wrong.

I also miss Otacon, Paz, Chico, Mei Ling, the Colonel, and Meryl. I really wish they'd bring the old gang back. I highly doubt it's gonna happen though. :'(

@Jessica Marra Well technically this is Naked Snake (Snake's father), and there are plot-related reasons why those other characters aren't in this game.

Code Talker is gonna be voiced by Vega? I don't believe it.

Its interesting during the second episode of KP Alert, it was said that the English audio is now the original language.

I have nothing against the cast, I'm just not sure why they felt the need to change the established one. I don't think anyone outside the studio had an issue with the previous one. Ah well, we'll see how it goes.

@GothamRed With Ocelot, even though Patric Zimmerman does an AWESOME job voicing him, I can actually understand the change. He's younger than 1, 2, and 4, but older than his young self in 3. I think Troy would make a great "interim" voice to transition between Josh and Patric Zimmerman.

That said, there is no reason whatsoever for David Hayter to have been axed.

@NCZ Well, they have to justify the change from David Hayter to Richard Doyle.

@TheAtticus Nanomachines, son.

@TheAtticus Big Boss had to be recast in MGS4 because he's much older, and the effects of FOXDIE were taking its toll. Not to mention that it'd have been weird for David Hayter to have been "talking to himself" since BB's only dialogue in that game was with Solid Snake.

Back to this game, the recast was from either creative changes, or Hayter simply turned down the role. I'm quite sure it's the former though; Hayter's a big MGS fan, and he's still capable of doing the voice.

Troy Baker confirmed as Ocelot's new voice actor.

I think that picture is from Ground Zeroes.

@solidejake I'm pretty sure that it's just a placeholder. Obviously, the picture would be updated once the game comes out.
