Metal Gear Solid 5 will be set in 1970s Africa, star Big Boss and - and maybe, just maybe - show the birth of baby Solid Snake, according to an in-depth investigation in the latest issue of PSM3.

In a 10-page feature, Metal Gear series expert Dan Dawkins provides forensic analysis of the Metal Gear timeline, while piecing together over 12 months of Kojima's cryptic tweets, a raft of existing clues and all the 'Next MGS' imagery to date.

The most obvious clue about 'the next MGS', comes from the recent Kojima Productions GDC recruitment advert, where a picture of Big Boss (the hero of Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker) is accompanied by the call to arms, "Big Boss Wants You!".
The Kojima Productions site itself 'hides' another image of Big Boss with a 'Diamond Dogs' logo on his shoulder, which Dawkins claims is a reference to both the 1974 David Bowie album Diamond Dogs (Kojima being a confirmed Bowie fan), but, more importantly, the diamond mines of Angola, against which some of the action could be set.

Previously, characters such as Frank Jaeger aka Cyborg Ninja and Big Boss himself have all been revealed as having links to the continent via countries like South Africa, Rhodesia (neé Zimbabwe) and Mozambique, further reinforcing Africa's importance to MGS canon. Need convincing further? We've included a sample spread from the magazine detailing Dawkins' thinking.

As well as all that, PSM3 explains why the choice of location and timeline could mean a reprisal for Gray Fox (aka Ninja from MGS on PSone), focuses on the philosophical dispute between Big Boss and Major Zero that inspired the plot of MGS4, and reveals how the game could address modern world, mid-economic-recession, issues. Finally, they investigate Kojima's 'Project Ogre' and whether it's the same thing as the 'next' MGS and when both games might be out.

Oh, and why should you trust Dawkins? Because he was the man that correctly predicted the plot, main themes and characters in GTA V months before the official first reveal.

If this is true and MGS5 doesn't come to the Wii U, this will be the game that will make me get a PS3. Also Gray Fox, yay.

....i'm still waiting to be able to play the boss >.> Seriously she deserves a game set in WW2 now that would be awesome. Anyway as long as he isn't fighting a dozen different tanks/helicopters/metal gears for no real cause it should be good, I hated peace walker's overuse of harder boss battles by just using a tank, where is the thinking in that? All you did was gun and shoot cmon, more sneaking missions and less reliance on equipment.

But it's not the WWII-era game centered on the Boss I was dreaming of.

Honestly, I'm kinda sick of the Big Boss. He's had a lot of time to shine. MGS3, Portable Ops, Peace Walker. I just feel like they can't get any more out of his character.

That being said, we need a game about the Boss, set in WWII. Because that would be "boss" indeed.

Hey, why not a game centered ar- Wait. I was going to make a joke about Raiden, but then I remembered they are making a game for him and it looks awesome.

Huh. Well, carry on then.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
