Welcome to the MGS4 Info Desk. This is the thread to post all your minor queries regarding MGS4 as opposed to starting a completely new topic.

Whilst the game hasn't been released, we've learnt a significant amount from trailers, interviews and other sources. There is also a lot of information overlooked from the other Metal Gear titles that many people are confused or simply don't know about this is the thread to deal with them and have them all cleared up before game release!

So this thread is to just clear up your questions from 'why is Meryl in the game, I thought she died?' to 'why is Solid Snake so old?' all queries that basically have a clear-cut answer will be placed in here.

Please note: All questions that seem to have a more ambiguous and controversial nature will be spilt from this topic so it can be properly discussed just as new topics created for minor queries will be merged into this thread.

All this is in an effort to keep the forum looking tidy as well as more organized. Thank you.

Spoiler: (ill play it safe)
Raiden doesnt die in the TGS trailer does he?

I first thought he was just in a bad way after the Vamp fight but a few people seem to think that he dies when he goes all limp.

They wouldnt show us that would they?
And this is the way the saga ends, not with a bang...but a whimper

No, they wouldn't reveal the death of a major character in a trailer.

Thats what I thought, I hope it will be a continued rivalry throughout the game instead of just the one fight between them.

they seem to be evenly matched...kind of like Snake and Liquid..

I think he MAY die there, or he's dying. Maybe they're rushing Raiden for repairs.

1. Solid Snake is using a system caled Solid Eye that helps him see stuff. Im not the biggest MGS buff around here and I ant explain to u why hes wearing it but yeah it confused me the first time i saw it too.

2. It hasnt really been confirmed as to why Raiden is a Ninja but some people have some pretty good theories around here.



EDIT: Ahh dang you beat me fox

He wears a new kind of imaging device created by Otacon, it's called Solid Eye System, it incorporates the Scope, Nightvision and Thermal Goggles from previous games into one device, lessening the load Snake has to carry.

He still has both eyes intact.

Are the Metal Gear Gekkous the mini ones in the trailors that look kind of like REX?

Iv'e seen people mention the Gekkous alot around here and don't know where it came from. Do they mention the name in any of the trialors?

Yes, the GEKKOU are the small Metal Gear units, for example at the end of the E3 2006 trailer Raiden kills three of them.
