239w ago - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots came and we played. Then our own Scottish nobleman Mark Serrels came, and we went dang man, WTF?!
Yes there is no greater Kojima fanboy than gameplayer's Mr. Serrels who holds as his three fondest moments in life getting married, killing The End and seeing Kojima's wang in the dunnies at a Konami press trip in late 2007 in support of MGS4.
The man keeps in contact with the friends he made on that trip, including a member of Kojima's staff, who has just dropped him an email saying that the famous developer is about to make a big announcement in "T minus 3 days and counting" with regards to a new project.
What could it be? Zone of Enders 3? Snatcher Reborn? Metal Gear Solid vs. NWO World Tour? Speculate your respective butts off in the comments below and be sure to watch this space for info as soon as it drops. For the record, we're guessing a repackaged Metal Gear Solid 4, possibly in the vein of Subsistence. But for giggles we're saying MGS4 for Xbox 360!
241w ago - Six years after the release of the last console game in the series, Hideo Kojima is talking Zone of the Enders.
Specifically, the Kojima Productions founder asks if gamers are really interested in a Zone of the Enders 3 during a new episode of MGS4's in-game "Integral" podcast.
To quote: Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, the second game in the series, was directed by MGS4 co-writer and director, Shuyo Murata, and remains a fan favorite in addition to a critical success; we're surprised it's taken Kojima this long to broach the topic of a sequel.
In closing out a discussion about the demand for a follow-up, Kojima and his podcasting partners ask gamers to email them if they'd be interested in seeing it happen.
Kojima-san, about your mail server... we're sorry about its imminent death under the weight of all those emails. Surely you can buy a new one with profits from ZOE 3?
245w ago - So we all know that Hideo Kojima will reveal his new project at E3 in June, and we're anxiously anticipating the unveiling.
However, it seems to be a commonly accepted theory that this new title will be made for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Historically, Kojima has always sided with Sony's brand but he has admitted that he'd like to see his studio appeal more to the Western masses, and considering that, it would make sense to include the 360 in their future plans.
But as we've said before that if a developer wishes to focus entirely on the PS3, they can make better strides (just look at the current and future PS3 exclusives), we have a question: if Kojima does a multiplatform game, will it fall short of the quality we saw in MGS4? Would he even allow that to happen?
We're banking on the fact that Kojima is both a master and a perfectionist, so we seriously doubt that he'd give us a lackluster production simply for the sake of appealing to more gamers on the 360. But at the same time, he has also said he never wanted to put any MGS installment on a Microsoft console, and some sources have claimed that MGS4 wouldn't even be possible on the 360 (perhaps due to the difficult Blu-Ray to DVD conversion).
Now, we're not concluding anything one way or the...
252w ago - Alongside Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, cool glasses-wearing Metal Gear daddy Hideo Kojima will attend to deliver a keynote speech next month at the event.
To quote: Called "Solid Game Design: Making the 'Impossible' Possible," this will be Kojima's first appearance at GDC. He must have heard that all the cool kids were doing it. Last year's GDC was also populated by many big-time Japanese guests.
"The Game Developers Conference has invited Hideo Kojima to keynote every year for as long as I can remember, so we couldn't be more excited that, at long last, he feels that it is time for him to address the game development community," said Meggan Scavio, event director of the GDC.
"The anticipation is already huge to see how one of the community's most revered and elusive creators will inspire attendees to further push the limits of game development."
