    Remember The Phantom Pain? The odd and mysterious game was revealed some months back. It was completely out of the blue, being made by an unknown "Moby Dick Studios", headed by an unknown developer named "Joakim Mogren". Eventually the game came under a lot of speculation, with many people believing it to be a new Metal Gear game, with telltale signs like Joakim Mogren just being an anagram for Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima as well as an oddly familiar looking protagonist in the trailer amongst other hints. It's been quiet since then, but apparently we'll be hearing about the game this week.

    GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley tweeted that he was having an interview with the supposed "Joakim Mogren", (metal) gearing us up for a reveal on the game.

    Kojima Productions already announced their next Metal Gear game, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, chronicling the story of the Big Boss even more as well as laying the foundation for the game that started it all, Metal Gear.

    I thought phantom pain was something people felt when they lost a limb or something and they tell you "my arm itches"

    It's also the feeling Hideo Kojima gets when he's short on cash.

    The only treatment so far is to make more Metal Gear games.

    Wait, I'm confused, isn't an Anagram just a word with letters switched around to be another word, and you have to switch them back to get the true word?

    Right... so how is "Joakim Mogren" an anagram for Hideo Kojima?

    Actually nevermind, just read the source and it said only Joakim is Kojima, it was your post that was confusing me. SHUT THE FUCK UP I JUST WOKE UP!

    I hope they announce what system it is on. It looks like Vita but still waiting for that confirmation.
