Kojima's TGA 2015 Absence and Konami's Horse Shit Discussion (Video)

30 posts in this topic

Was it made by you or someone else? Also, fuck Konami.

Not by me, but I am a fan of Yong's videos and I think he makes a good point about this whole Konami/Kojima bullsh*t.

I completely agree.  To not allow Kojima to go and accept his award is pathetic, immature, wrong and just shows how petty and small minded the management at Konami are.

 

EDIT:

 

In case anyone missed this is what Geoff had to say at the game awards, and I really appreciate that he and the producers had the balls for him to come out and say it:

And this is why nobody gives a rat's ass about the TGA awards. Even Kojima didn't give a rat's ass about the award. He's Hideo fucking Kojima!

Konami were nominated for developer of the year at this. Thankfully they didn't win, it went to CDPR, but still.

I was watching the show and when Geoff explians why Kojima can't come my jaw literally dropped. I have no words to describe how fucking pathetic Konami is. At least VGA actually used Kojima Productions instead of Konami for MGSV. It was nice seeing the internet flooded with #FucKonami. Jim Sterling was proud.

Ugh, the TGA IS the VGA. They changed the name a few years ago.

So you're acknowledging that they are the same award show. Good to hear.

So you're upset with Geoff for telling people that Konami didn't allow Kojima to be there?

It wasn't Geoff that prevented Kojima from attending it was Konami. They legally kept him from showing up at the awards.

Now I really want to think carefully about the following question, what could he have possibly done about it?

 

There was a clause in the employment contract with Konami that Kojima signed so he would have faced legal action if he had attended.  Metal Gear Solid is Konami's intellectual property and they are using that to cut Kojima out of the picture for not other reason than spite.

 

It had to do nothing to do with Geoff or TGA, the situation was completely out of their control.  You and Glaice talking nonsense.

Geoff should've broke into the Konami prison and rescued Kojima. Because he didn't, Kojima is now probably dead. I mean, have any of you seen Kojima since then? I don't think so.

Amen

 

Now, I'm no fan of Geoff Keighley, but this was nothing to do with him nor TGA, so why are you guys criticizing him over a decision by Konami that he and TGA had no control over? A choice that he did have control over was to or not to stand with microphone in front of a camera, to entire watching audience, and call Konami out on their bullshit and accredit Kojima in a move that would likely piss off Konami to a massive level. That took some serious stones.

 

Like the man or not, he does deserve credit for that.
