RIZZ RANT: Free Kojima!

konamiLast night at the Game Awards, Geoff Keighley announced to the crowd that Hideo Kojima, the creator of one of the best games of 2015 Metal Gear Solid V, was not able to attend. Now, Kojima was not sick, injured, had a family emergency/death, or just didn’t want to attend. Actually, I’m pretty sure Kojima would be there if he wanted to.

Konami, the big piece of shit company they are, decided to BAN Mr. Kojima from attending the event and celebrating the game that HE made, you know, the “HIDEO KOJIMA GAME” Metal Gear Solid V? That game? Yeah, he wasn’t there because Konami didn’t want to be there.

In fact, they took it a step forward and their lawyers told Kojima that if he were to show up, he would be sued.

I am not the only one with a problem with this. Geoff Keighley stated, “…It’s disappointing and it’s inconceivable to me that an artist like Hideo would not be allowed to come here and celebrate with his peers and fellow teammates.”

I’m sorry, if I spent my hard-earned time, blood, sweat and tears in something one-twelfth as good as a new video game that everyone friggin’ liked only to have the group that I helped put on the friggin’ map I would not just be this mad, I would be furious. Especially as we hear the backtracking that Konami has been doing for the past year about Kojima’s status. Remember the party they threw for Kojima? Remember the “His team isn’t leaving, they’re just ‘taking a vacation’!” bullshit? Remember how we laughed it off and go “Oh Konami! Look at these hound dogs trying to make light of a situation!” There’s no way they can make this go away.There’s no Konami Code to punch in to make this go away, guys.

We here at Insert Coin to Begin (especially myself) would like to extend a congratulations to Hideo Kojima and HIS team on all of the success that HIS GAME produced over the year. Whether it was E3, Playstation awards, or the Video Game Awards.

Thank you, Mister Kojima. You deserve to be awarded for your talent.

Metal Gear Ground Zeroes Demo Trailer: Sorry to keep you waiting.

This weekend at PAX gaming convention new details emerged about a new Metal Gear game.  Not only is this game an open world Metal Gear game, it is also the prequel to Metal Gear 5.  So this game fits in right where it’s supposed to be.  Instead of a small game Konami is going all out for a prequel to a Metal Gear game by making it a huge open world.  The demo is 14 minutes long and takes you through what may be the beginning sequence of the game.  (thanks to IGN for the video)

 

Some impressions I got from the video,  I think the game looks beautiful, dynamic weather systems, animals, driving.  I could go on and on about the graphics of this game.  Another thing that I noticed is Hideo Kojima’s knod to the audience on how long it’s been since we last played a brand new Metal Gear game for a console system.

You did, but we don’t mind the wait.

Could this be Volgin, or someone else? 

Another thing that was noticed was the man that was badly burned and scarred, I believe Volgin was electrocuted on the tank in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.  I for one hope it is Vulgin.  Another person it could be is The Fury but he wasn’t as big of a character as Volgun was.  Another thing worth mentioning, who is the character in the first picture, and what does he have to do with the entire Metal Gear universe? Is he with Fox as well? We’ll find out soon enough.  I just hope that Metal Gear has all the cool tech, and boss battles that we’ve grown to love in the series.  It wouldn’t be a Metal Gear game without them.
