Anime Expo: David Hayter Critical of Some MGS Moments

50°
316w ago - Solid Snake voice actor David Hayter was surprisingly candid at Anime Expo's centerpiece guest-of-honor panel, where he admitted to being frustrated at times with Metal Gear Solid series director Hideo Kojima's over-the-top scriptwriting and direction.

He specifically called out the suicide scene highlighted in Metal Gear Solid 4 trailers, saying that Snake, a man who's killed thousands, shouldn't flinch at pulling the trigger on himself.

"I didn't agree with that at all, and I begged them to change it, but I think it's still in the final game," he said. "I didn't buy it at all. I think it's weak for Snake to be killing other people and then not be able to kill himself when it's time. If he knows it's time, then it's time."

Hayter also revealed that wasn't the first time he's had issues with MGS scripts -- and one of the culprits should come as no surprise to longtime series fans. "It's a delicate thing to discuss love blooming on the battlefield with Otacon," he admitted, describing the original Metal Gear Solid's notorious unintentionally homoerotic cut-scene. Hayter also revealed that the actors "had a tough time" getting through the alternate ending of MGS, where Snake and Otacon are seen riding off into the sunset on a snowmobile.

"It felt like it was written to...
 

Warhawk to support Trophy System, some Retroactive

50°
317w ago - Dylan Jobe has confirmed that the team is excited about integrating trophies into Warhawk for new awards as well as some awards that players may have achieved before the update.

In addition to this, Jobe commented that some but not all of the trophies in Warhawk will be retroactive.

To quote: We contacted Dylan Jobe, producer/director at Incog. Inc., to find out exactly what was going on with the Trophy scheme and got the following statement from him: "We're excited about integrating Trophies into Warhawk for both new awards as well as some awards that players may have already achieved (prior to the update) like rank, combat badges and medals.

As a result of our approach, and to clarify some of the confusion on the Net, some - not all - of the Trophies in Warhawk will be retroactive."
 

Prince of Persia devs planned something special for PS3 owners

250°
319w ago - You may or may not be aware that there's a vote taking place on the official Prince of Persia Web site. This poll allows people to pick one of three Xbox 360 achievements for the final game.

Not much use to PS3 owners, but Ubisoft has done its best to keep us sweet. The poll itself states that PS3 fans need not take umbrage and that they have "planned something special" for us too.

Whether this will have anything to do with the upcoming trophies for the game, or something else entirely, there's no real indication.

Needless to say, however, we're looking forward to seeing whatever it is Ubisoft comes up with. What can we say, we love surprises!
 

Reeves: PSP Piracy Drives Hardware Sales, Sometimes

50°
319w ago - It's clear that piracy on the PSP is a problem. We know it, and so does Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves. But it's not all bad, at least for Sony, as Reeves admits that piracy on the platform has driven hardware sales at times. On the whole, though, he isn't happy about it, obviously.

To quote: There is a piracy problem on PSP. We know about it, we know how it's done. It sometimes fuels the growth of hardware sales, but on balance we are not happy about it.

Following up to his previous statement, Reeves said that Sony will "unveil new ways to combat piracy soon."

Sounds good, but it may be just talk with little action resulting, taking their previous efforts into account. Time will tell...
 

The very-awesome Haze official Web site!

50°
326w ago - This is a very cool Web site featuring nice aspects of this new Haze game made by Free Radical. I always enjoyed the co-op in other titles. I bet this was expensive and time consuming to make.

To quote: We're hoping Ubisoft's Haze official Web site is a good indicator on how much effort went into creating the game.

While most official sites do little more than give a few screenshots and videos, the Haze site goes above and beyond, creating a truly cinematic experience that puts other sites to shame.

Yes, you'll need a decently equipped rig to experience the site, but it's truly worthwhile.
