Recently a video game trailer shook the whole world or at least it did to mine. That trailer being Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes which was revealed at PAX. So we’re getting a new MGS game, we get to play as Naked Snake/Big Boss again, it’s on the new Fox Engine, and it’s going to be available on current systems. Yeah it’s safe to say I’m excited.


The trailer was 10 minutes long and full of questions. I’m going to be dissecting this trailer answering the big questions and revealing things you may have missed. So let’s get started. Below is the trailer if you haven’t seen it yet.



1.) As the trailer begins we see a man walking in a huge rain storm. He then passes by a sign that reads “Camp Omega Maximum Security”. Ok so we’re at a camp somewhere in the world, but the real question is why is it called “Camp Omega”? As you can clearly see the Omega symbol on the sign is obviously revealing that Ground Zeroes has a connection to the God of War series.

Is Kratos in this game? Will Ground Zeroes answer the big question that was left to players at the end of God of War 3? We’ll have to wait and see.


2.) Next, after seeing a kid that can connect headphones to his chest it’s revealed that rats will be in the game.

If you think about it there are a lot of rats in the MGS series. In MGS3: Snake Eater, Naked Snake had to hunt for his food to survive. Rats were a significant source of his diet during his mission. Will Snake be able to eat these rats again? Will these rats taste better? Will the story finally reveal the origins of these furry creatures? We’ll have to wait and see.


3.) Dogs are confirmed to be making a comeback.


4.) Next, we see people getting into jeeps. Sure this looks normal, but did you notice the soldiers are carrying an extra pair of gloves?

Why do they need these? They are already wearing gloves. Also, the color of those gloves doesn’t match with the soldier’s outfits. I smell something fishy going on with this.


5.) After that we take a car ride to where some choppers are waiting. We then see a man walk toward this chopper and what we see next is very important.

Yes cowboy hats look to be confirmed for Ground Zeroes. I believe this is a first for the series as I can’t think of another character that wore a cowboy hat. Will Snake be able to wear one as well? Let’s hope so.


What? You want to know why that man is erasing the words on the chopper? I don’t understand why you’re interested in that when cowboy hats have just been confirmed.


6.) Then the face of the man wearing the cowboy hat is revealed and it’s not pretty. Looks like a serious case of dry skin to me. Kojima is probably just trying to show children what will happen if you don’t put lotion on your face regularly.


7.) After some rock climbing we finally get to see Snake. However, when the camera turns to show Snakes face we see that he is wearing Sam Fishers night-vision goggles.

Is this Kojima taking a shot at the Splinter Cell series or something else? Sam Fisher would probably just be a kid during this time……wait a minute remember that kid that could plug headphones into his chest? Looks like I have figured out the identity of this mystery kid. Snake will probably rescue Sam from his cage and then give the goggles to him as a present. The origins of Sam Fisher will be revealed in Ground Zeroes. You heard it here first.



After that scene the trailer is pretty much over. Sure we see Snake sneaking over towards the God of War camp, but something unnatural happens. Snake gets caught by one of the search lights. This is absolute blasphemy! Snake never gets caught. Is this really the Naked Snake/Big Boss? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.


Hope you enjoyed my dissecting of the Ground Zeroes trailer. I can’t wait for this game to come out so I can get some answers to these burning questions. Once again thanks for taking the time to read this.
