Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Stuns With New Trailer

Now that everyone's had a chance to fool around with the gameplay systems of the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain via its recently released prologue Ground Zeroes, the world can do nothing but sit and wait for Hideo Kojima and crew to finish the next chapter in gaming's most revered (and most bizarre) franchises.

Wait, it's E3 time! We can do more than sit and wait! We can watch this incredibly lengthy trailer (an extended cut of the one shown at Sony's press conference) and pick it to pieces just like that vulture did to that poor guy in the beginning! So amid all the questions plaguing your mind (such as "why in the blue hell is Snake rubbing ashes on his face?"), just sit back and theorize just how this next installment in Big Boss's story is going to pan out.

As always, we'll be here with a full review when the game deploys for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Stay patient, my friends!
