After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Will Solid Snake Appear Voiced By David Hayter In MGS5?

Posted on Friday, March 29 @ 16:41:00 PST by Jonathan_Leack

After hearing all this news of David Hayter not voicing Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain I couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. This is the guy who has been an iconic voice actor for every Metal Gear installment since 1998. He is charming, fits the role well, and enjoys his job. For him to publicly Tweet that he wasn't even asked to voice Big Boss in MGS5 is extremely suspicious. Then it dawned on me: this has to be another troll by Hideo Kojima.

We've heard the "new" Big Boss in the announcement trailer, and it certainly isn't David Hayter. It's safe to say he won't be voicing Big Boss, but what about Solid Snake?

If you look at the Metal Gear timeline Big Boss was cloned during 1972 during the Les Enfants Terribles project, producing the legendary Solid Snake in the process. Ground Zeroes takes place two-years later and Big Boss falls into his second coma—poor fellow. Another nine-years pass and Big Boss wakes up in the hospital. That would mean that Solid Snake is around 11-12 years old at the beginning of MGS5.

David Hayter is capable of using a far less grizzly voice than we're used to hearing in the Metal Gear franchise—just listen to his interview during the weird introduction of MGS4—, but it still wouldn't make much sense to use his voice for a young child. However, Solid Snake has been subject to rapid aging which explains why he's an old, dying man during the length of MGS4 despite only being 40 years old. It wouldn't be too far-fetched to have Solid Snake appear after some time lapses in MGS5 and have him sound and look like a young adult.

Kojima even stated during June of last year that Solid Snake will appear in MGS5. This led many to believe that the next title would follow the events of MGS4. Little did we know that it'd show him at the youngest age we've seen him yet.

Those of you, like me, who love David Hayter's work should reserve your judgement until we see what's really going on here. It's extremely likely that he'll have a role in the next Metal Gear, and if anything it'll be shocking to see him appear out of nowhere, healthier and younger than ever. Heck, we hardly got to play him in Metal Gear Solid 2 and the next time he got to play him he was practically coughing up a lung. If there's one thing we've learned during the past few months about Kojima it's that he likes to torture his fans, and treats every day like it's April Fools.
