Well, no, that isn't a thing. But it should be, because there are several simultaneous kinds of holy shit going on right here.

Mr. Metal Gear, Hideo Kojima, has always been one for balls-out theatrics. His stark, uncompromising vision (which, memorably, once brought us that muscular dude-ass shimmying up a ladder for far too damn long as operatic music warbled on moment) is certainly present and correct for the new title, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

This extended director's cut of the E3 2013 trailer is rated BTCSGU for bloody torture, child soldiers and general unpleasantness, but don't let that put you off taking a first glimpse at something spectacular in the making. Can you resist checking out ‘a new breed of stealth,' which seems to involve hiding behind a horse's ass like a big girl? Of course you can't.
