Palmer Luckey Cosplays as Metal Gear Solid 5's Quiet

We will refrain from any commentary in this story and just give the facts and a picture.

49

After Oculus founder Palmer Luckey left Facebook earlier this year, people openly speculated on what he might do next. Would he open a new studio, or perhaps enter the conservative political arena? Well, apparently he is going to cosplay and travel.

Luckey was captured on digital film cosplaying in Japan as Metal Gear Solid 5's Quiet, complete with bikini:

He wasn't hiding as plenty of folks got pictures.

He even retweeted a picture of him trying on a 4K VR helmet. 

And Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima retweeted one as well..

For his part, Luckey is taking it in stride and enjoying the extra exposure, er, coverage, er, non-coverage.

I guess the secret is out now, and he's already planning his next costume:

      I saw this earlier... but didn't realize it was Palmer Luckey. That's pretty liberal for a guy who invested in right-wing shitposting organizations.

        Bulk of the anti-vax people are liberals, especially well to do ones.

        Think about it, going back further in time, America was more religious but a larger portion of the population used vaccinations and promoted it because they all experienced the horrors of those diseases. Today people are more progressive to a fault they're suspicous of vaccines. Sure there are people with religious exceptions but they're fewer than the ones who use some belief based exceptions against vaccines.

              that and the needing to know who she is so they could look up more photos of her online.

              she's not a person, she's a sexual object and she's only with him because he's rich.

          You could try dressing like a woman in spandex with your hairy belly sticking out. See if that gets you a woman, but its probably more to do with palmer being worth millions of dollars and not his bdsm cosplay skills.

          But hey, we arent supposed to assume. This is a joke-free zone. Id respect the shit out of that girls asshole. I wouldnt dare put more than 1 finger in.

            The "joke free zone" you're talking about has more to do with not assuming that everything boils down to "women are evil and only out sell their bodies for a taste of a man's power"
            It's such a trashy position that reflects poorly on everyone here.

              Men and women both do it. Power and wealth are 2 very attractive traits. We all see a fat guy, we get jealous, and assume the worst things. The context of the joke is built around that palmers reputation of a scumbag. No woman could like him, why would a woman like him. Its not a scathing review of womens position in a dominance hierarchy. There is no underlying malicious mysogeny. If it was a fat unattractive millionare woman with a cute 20 year old boytoy we would assume the same thing.

              Youre just so hell bent on being angry that no assumptions can be made to poke fun of absurd situations.

              Its gross. Dont be so upset. Theres a woman out there for you. This one is taken, and she cant hear you, shes not on shacknews. You dont have to defens her.

                She's his long term girlfriend. She was very pro-gamergate, she's just as much of a creep as him.

                None of that was in the initial post. He defaulted to gold digger and was asking who she was so he could track down more pics of her. He objectified her immediately.
                Don't want to be called a misogynist? Don't make misogynistic jokes. It's pretty simple.

                I'm not angry. I just think this is something we shouldn't ignore. It sets a bad tone around here.

                Also, not helping your case when you go for the super dickish personal attacks at the end.

                    Pro-gamergate is basically 4chan shitlords and MRA types terrified of women being acknowledged as anything more than eye candy.

                      So Moxxi is a woman, is she terrified of women or just a troll? If she is just a troll why does that make her pro-gamergate and not just a troll??

                      My last experience with the gamergate wars were some "SJW-types or anti-gamergaters, whatever" trying to get Divinity Original Sin to change their graphics.

                      Nah, gamergate isnt a thing. Other than a hashtag.

                      The creators of gamergate were just groups of minorities that were tired of being "grouped". So ironically they decide to group other people into their own brand of groups so they can attack them on twitter, tumblr, and other social media.

                      Its this weird meta of holier than thou virtue signaling thats been going on for the last few years. Its mostly people trying to project their own suffering onto other people instead of fixing small problems in their own lives.

                      "How can this person have political positions different than my own yet still be intelligent and successful?" "Obviously i am just as smart and am being forgotten in the system because of racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, etc"

                      Its mostly from a position of authority and anti free speech. Its mostly annoying. That we cant make a joke on the shack without it becoming some post-modernist jerk off thread where everyones gotta let out their feels.

                      She put herself out there. In that outfit, knowing its sexual and provacative.

                      You are taking for granted her own autonomy, by attempting to protect her from an internet forum full of people just shooting the shit.

                      There is no one for you to fall on the cross for. Its not sexist to think a womans hot.

                      Stop threadshitting with your dick between your legs like some sort of hero seer from the land of pattycake. I insult you because you insult us first with your patronizing and condescending post.
