We loved the Phantom Pain so much, we wanted to do a two part episode on it! In this episode, Rob talked to Chris Millar of, who listeners may remember from the ECM podcast. Millar has put an enormous amount of time into the Phantom Pain, and has a lot to say about it from a player's perspective. Topics include:

  • Favorite story moments
  • Strategies from an expert FOB player
  • Stories about getting into the game

In addition, there is plenty of awesome music from the OST in the breaks!

Check out some of Millar's incredible MGSV gameplay here:

Zero Kills, Zero Alerts in Ground Zeroes

Deja Vu Mission (with Cyborg Ninja!)

Daytime FOB Invastion No Alert (Wow, this is awesome!)

Stay tuned for part 2, when Rob and Kip talk about the design and art of The Phantom Pain!
