This MGS5: Ground Zeroes enemy is just like “nope”

Tuesday, 24th June 2014 02:49 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Metal Gear Solid soldiers are faceless and virtually identical, existing to be knocked out or even offed by our hero, Snake. But not this guy. This guy has a plan.

The video below comes courtesy of YouTube suer sheepgrassland and shows an enemy taking a creative path to safety from Snake’s sniping. Faced with becoming just another notch in the legendary Big Boss’s belt, our friend here takes a long, hard look at his employment benefits and just “nope”s the fuck out.

Who can blame him? As good as the MGS 5: Ground Zeroes AI is, Metal Gear isn’t a friendly franchise for those who pick the wrong side, what with at least three different super soldiers gadding about the place mowing down hundreds of grunts single-handedly.

We salute you, brave soldier of Camp Omega, for your pursuit of life and liberty in the face of such annoying constraints as “physics” and “reality”. It’s a shame it didn’t work.

Glitches are great, aren’t they? The bigger games get, the more we’ll see this kind of thing – even in packages as polished as Ground Zeroes.

Thanks, DualShockers.

    Not reported was the fact sheepgrassland has replayed the game 100+ times & this vid is his/her desperate justification for the paid for demo that is Ground Zero’s.

    Is that… yeah, it is! The soldier is clearly shouting “fuuuuuck yoooooou” to Snake as he climbs to Outer Heaven!

    Share button / features of new consoles are godsends.
    We have awesome bugs, crazy situations and beautiful vistas and then we have possibility of every gamer becoming a gaming site full of HD gaming footage. Of course unless you have a Nintendo system. Then it’s nope, back to the stone age and purple bubbles of Reggie and Iwata.

    Ah, so that’s where the name “Outer Heaven” comes from!

    ” Then it’s nope, back to the stone age and purple bubbles of Reggie and Iwata.”

    hey red, this is not fair at all and also, simply not true. miiverse allows you to make a screenshot instantly and with the combo of the drawing feature this stuff can be truly hilarious on it´s own. the incorporation of miis in mario kart (it basically allows you to play as snoop dog or josef stalin) is a pretty fantastic online feature too. this is not exactly what i would call the stone age – in fact, to me, having a ps4 and a wiiu, the social features on the wiimachine feel much more modern and thought out than on the sony.
    nothing personal man but i am really getting tired of the nintendo is so behind argument. if you look a little closer you can see that they are trying something different, yes, but that doesn´t make them outdated automaticaly.
    their restirictions and heavy censorship…i understand the criticism but it can be a godsend for parents.
    you wont believe how many pedos have been around when that thing launched asking everyone who looked childish based on their drawings if they want to videochat.
    a friend of mine just a few days ago said that it is such a relief, having 2 young daughters, that they are so restrictive. he´s multiplat but the wiiu is the only console that is in his living room.
    i think gamers should try to give up on the idea that nintendo will make a console for them exclusively- that´s what the playstation is aiming for now. the wiiu is an all ages family system and completely, i mean on the hardware, software, UI front with that in mind. it doesn´t make it childish though, or even outdated. it doesn´t mean that it wont have mature games but it is not exclusively aimed at the male 16-35 gamer.

    just wanted to say that. you´ve been hitting a nerve there :D sorry back @ topic:

    i played rented and played this game yesterday. finished it and the 5 sidemissions (i think there are a few more, unlockable ones?) in about 2.5 hours.
    I really hope people will not not buy this game. What is there is great. It is a fine teaser demo for the full game but the asking price and the business idea behind it shouldn´t be supported imo.
    if people will buy anyway, we´ll see more of this crap. i wouldn´t want that.
    i want to see an industry that rewards their most dedicated fans and doesn´t try to milk them.

    @polygem But they ARE behind. Can I go on the Miiverse, without a Wii U? No. Can I go on Youtube or Twitch? Yup. Nintendo are so stuck in their stupid little bubble that they can’t see the rest of the world anymore. It’s why they are seen as a relic by everyone who isn’t you.

    i completely disagree with that. to me, they are pretty much the most innovative out of the bunch – by far.
