There Are No Politics In Hideo Kojima Games Meanwhile while they pretend to understand Metal Gear, Kojima said this in the above interview that was posted only a day before. Superman Returns: What went wrong Why the future of Deus Ex lies with its past Remembering From Software's Forgotten Mech Classic, 'Chromehounds' In Praise of Video Gaming’s Old Dalliance with Distance Fog Watching Someone Else Play Resident Evil 7 On YouTube: The Kotaku Review Related to this article Perpetually offended "journalist" trying to find things to be mad about This started off as amusing to me since it's a guy who does nothing but write hit pieces complaining about articles or people posting things that he clearly didn't read, didn't or pretends not to understand, or in a recent case was two years old. It ended up getting funnier as people told him the article was clearly about the watching of Let's Plays with some joke content thrown in, causing him to call their arguments autistic and then leading him to lie about the LPer not having his content linked in Kotaku's article (checking the article above will see the Youtuber mentioned by name multiple times, his profile linked with his name, and his video linked, giving him views and putting readers one click away from being on the upload on his page). Seeing that he has so many followers, a dedicated site to hosting his whining, was a former editor of Gameranx, and has so many people positively sharing this blatant lie as if it were true, it does serve as a good reminder to actually look into random criticism and memes against gaming websites and personalities. Even more so when there are so many websites and Youtubers trying to make a living off of manufacturing outrage or producing angry reaction videos/articles. One obvious example frequently linked for years is an image complaining about IGN reviews with brief sections taken from the final score with no context, with the attempt being to make it look like the writers is complaining about things like a Pokemon game having water in it when that actually refers to content and balance issues in the game. Moral is it's good to actually read things, better to attempt to understand them, and if you're one of the worst writers in an industry and have multiple journalists and developers in that industry referring to you as a constant source of embarrassment, you probably shouldn't attempt to complain about one of the best. Meanwhile the Let's Player and his fans, who Ian tried to make it look like he was angry for, had this response to Kotaku's article.

Other content I found interesting this week THE PEWDIEPIE "SCANDAL"!! I noticed that the NicheGamer editor with the "can we hate him now" quote is the same guy who was recently going on a homophobic and transphobic rant about not wanting to support No Man's Sky last week, while also talking about his ban dodging (if anyone wanted to know why I don't use sites like that for the news post, that would mostly be the reason why). That aside, I was worried I linked to some badly written clickbait last week, thankfully I didn't. I read the FCC and Polygon article (which is the one I linked to) which actually just says that he was one of the people paid, Polygon's mention of him just said Which is correct, even PewDiePie says he now puts disclosures in a place where they are immediately visible, they also weren't one of the ones to use his image for their article or even mention him in the headline. You really can't call the Polygon article clickbait when he wasn't even mentioned in the preview part of the article on their homepage. The Verge article being the opposite with him as the first word of the title, his image being attached, saying he is a reviewer, and saying he didn't disclose it. The ones saying he didn't disclose at all, using his picture for the headline, and saying he reviewed it, that would typically be something that I look more into, but he was such a minor inclusion to the FCC and Polygon write up that it didn't even cross my mind to think about him.

Now that Nintendo has called them a hate group people seem to have taken to saying that she is stupid for not assuming it was a reference to a combination of Watergate/Mario Party and that she just wanted attention, by that logic the guy in charge of one of the websites they trust is also stupid (worse actually, since he knew the entire context, had no reason for an emotional response, and went on to talk about how the whole in game situation was a reference not just those two lines) or that he intentionally created controversy where there was none in order to write a clickbait article for attention which could easily have been what she was sent the pictures from in the first place.

  7. When Hideo Kojima revealed his next venture, the new Kojima Productions, last year, he announced the reformed studio with a black and white logo that featured an armored, skull-faced being. Today, Kojima reveals the full mascot behind that logo. He's called Ludens, and he appears to be a futuristic explorer of new worlds. Kojima offered the first full-body look at Ludens on Twitter today, describing him as "the icon of Kojima Productions." Ludens, Kojima said, wears an "extra-vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit" — though the official artwork actually reads "extra-vehicular creative activity suit" — and is seen holding a Kojima Productions flag. "We'll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit," Kojima said of his new studio's ambitions on Twitter. The reborn Kojima Productions' first title will be a new franchise and a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, Kojima and Sony announced last year. Kojima has said that his ambitions for Kojima Productions go beyond just making games. Kojimas twitter: https://twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN Kojimas Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6lUqvh42Oc3XL19Edgd9QA source: http://www.polygon.com/2016/5/17/11692240/kojima-productions-logo-character-ludens-hideo-kojima
  8. There is rumors and possibles about upcoming game called Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Hideo Kojima will make a reveal the official answer and canon for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. But sometime, Konami made the official canon without Kojima's advise which is semi-canon. Just like did on George Lucas' Star Wars movies. I'm making Top 5 without order from least to most (5 -> 1). This is my prediction. But warning, this post is contained with little spoilers due to pre-released date and link to previous games if you haven't played whole games of Metal Gear franchises, go play it. Try Metal Gear Solid HD (which is include MGS2, MGS3 (with MG, MG2:SS), and MGS:PW. But there is DLC Full Game that taken from PS1 called MGS). 1. Characters Appearance There is lots of cameo appearances, recurring characters and new characters in this game. We know that Big Boss (now Venom Snake and Punished Snake), Miller, Ocelot, Huey Emmerich and well as Skull Face (the main villain in MGSV) are now returning to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. But there is possibly that link to the previous games. Example is Ishmael the man with bandages on his head like an mummy and help his master (Big Boss) to escape from Hospital who was under attacked by XOF and extract back to safely zone. Ishmael is a survivor of MSF after XOF army invaded Mother Base in Carribbean Sea (the headquarter to Militaires Sans Frontières). There is also unknown status for some characters including Chico in helicopter who was hit by shot down helicopter and crashed each together. Paz was gone now which is confirmed. There is new characters are Quiet the deaf sniper, Code Talker the old man who sort just like The End from MGS3 and Eli look like Liquid Snake (main antagonist in Metal Gear Solid series). There is rumor that Eli is Liquid Snake the Big Boss' long-lost son and twin brother to Solid Snake. Is Eli could be Liquid Snake? Liquid Snake joined British Army before Gulf War in Iraq (1990 - 1991). There is EVA (Big Boss' lover/couple) could be appear in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as either mention, cameo, minor, or major appearance. Because EVA was working for both US and China as American NSA agent. During Soviet War in Afghanistan, US government has send out CIA and well as NSA to help Mujahideen. Chinese government were also helped USA and Mujahideen. If EVA talk about American agents and Chinese agents were send their agents to Afghanistan, she would be appear as mention, no full body appearance. One of the creepy flaming ghost child with gas mask is possibly Psycho Mantis the support antagonist in Metal Gear Solid rather The Sorrow from Metal Gear Solid 3. Let's don't forget is that Grey Fox/Frank Jager (the parkour soldier who became ally to Big Boss after fighting against Big Boss during San Hieronymo Takeover) found the orphan girl name is Naomi during the mission in Africa. Frank Jager (Grey Fox's real name I presumed) could be joining with Big Boss and become a member of Diamond Dogs which is available to recruit in MGSV:TPP. Remember in two first Metal Gear games? And possibly Kyle Schneider from Metal Gear and final appearance in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake from South Africa will join Big Boss' Diamond Dogs as available to recruit in this game. I hope so. 2. The Setting and Locations Kojima confirmed that there will be two regions areas. One for Afghanistan and the other is Africa continent. Which is combined total of approximately about 10 Square Miles. There is possible base where the XOF (led by Skull Face) has controlled two base. One base is for Africa which is possible to be Outer Heaven base from Metal Gear for new Diamond Dogs' base when Snake capture XOF base in Africa. Outer Heaven base is located in Southern Africa continent near the border of South Africa country. Then the other is in Afghanistan which is possibly to be new base for Diamond Dogs' called Zanzibar Land (the main setting for Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake). Zanzibar Land is a military state base which is owned by Big Boss and the location for Zanzibar Land is in east of Afghanistan, north of Pakistan, west of China and south of Soviet Union (presumably Tajikistan). If XOF/Skull Face own the base in Afghanistan, there'd might be future base site for Zanzibar Land in XOF base at Afghanistan. The new mother base for Diamond Dogs as an headquarter is likely to be somewhere in Indian Ocean. 3. The Plot Story This is whole plot about this game. But there is some spoiler about this. There is the ghost child with gas mask (possibly Psycho Mantis) and encounter with another flaming ghost who look like Colonel Volgin. Maybe the curse of The Sorrow? Whatever. So after Snake rescued Miller, they're rebuilding the Mother Base in Indian Ocean (I assumed) under new mercenary armed group (PMC) name, Diamond Dogs. There is new metal gear in the hanger which is possibly Metal Gear ZEKE if XOF captured Metal Gear ZEKE and transported it to presumably African base. The new Metal Gear made by XOF is a predecessor to Metal Gear TX-55 made by Outer Heaven. If Snake capture XOF base in Africa, he would rename the base to Outer Heaven. Also there is possible that Snake will capture the base in Afghanistan, he would rename it to Zanzibar Land which I mention on above (See #2). Also that Miller will leave the Big Boss' side and join FOXHOUND with Solid Snake during Outer Heaven Uprising. Let's find out after we complete this game, but this is spoilers I warned you. 4. Secrets, Easter eggs, references and connections to previous Metal Gear games series Kojima made lots of Easter Eggs. But there is possible the easter eggs references. Which is links and hints to previous Metal Gear games series. There is surviving Vamp in the end of MGS2 which is lead to MGS4 and join Outer Heaven (the Liquid Ocelot's army with 5 PMC groups, not successor to Diamond Dogs and Big Boss' army). So as you know when MSF were defeated on Ground Zeroes, some of the MSF survivors were joined FSLN and won the war in Nicaraguan Revolution in 1980 after defeating Somoza regime the military dictatorship in Nicaragua. Many MSF survivors has been in hospitalizaed with Big Boss and Miller. When Big Boss open the new PMC group called Diamond Dogs, I hope that remnants of MSF will join Diamond Dogs. One of the black ops soldiers are resemblance to Ocelot Unit the elite Spetsnaz GRU squad group could be same squad and working for Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops? Because Ocelot brought their own men to Diamond Dogs. 5. Interview, Chat and Conversation Okay. This is side story and private talk. If Big Boss (now Venom Snake or Punished Snake) talk and interview with Ocelot. Ocelot would say about operate in Soviet territory at Afghanistan. Ocelot was working for both US' CIA and Soviet's GRU/KGB. Big Boss tell Ocelot about how Ocelot got his alias is Shalashaska. I assumed that Shalashaska wasn't his real name and goes undercover in Soviet territory. I believed Ocelot was treacherous against Soviet and let's Soviet get ended in 1991. Similar to Mikhail Gorbachev's Perestroika and well as Glasnost. Also let's don't forget that EVA too. Like I mention above, if EVA was talking about US and China relations. Then the agents from USA and China were on the agency mission in Afghanistan. It is unknown that EVA will be appeared as mention or body appearance. Huey Emmerich will talk about his new son (Hal "Otacon" Emmerich) and survivor of MSF that Huey escaped from Mother Base in Caribbean Sea due to XOF invaded and destroyed the Mother Base from MSF. Possible that Huey invented the new prosthetic hand with stun taser for Big Boss which is based on Zadornov's prosthetic hand. Maybe Huey got the Zadornov's prosthetic hand and modified prosthetic hand for Big Boss due to loss his left hand? Let's find out just like did on #4 on above. Well, this is the end of it. If Hideo Kojima is confirmed that, there will be canon. Let me know if you have any suggestion about upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
  9. OK, so if you're a Metal Gear fan you may not know this, but 2013 was a GOLD MINE in terms of news about the Phantom Pain or Ground Zeroes, OR WATEVA THA HEH YU WANNA CAHL EET.
