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 Solid V: The Phantom Pain

MetalGearSolidV

 

Remember that trailer for The Phantom Pain during the Spike Video Game Awards?  I for one remember it and was confused about what the hell was going on.  Take a look at the original trailer here and you’ll see what I mean…

 

It was revealed today by Hideo Kojima himself that The Phantom Pain is indeed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  I’m not sure if this is a merging of the Ground Zeroes trailer and The Phantom Pain as One Metal Gear Game or if they are 2 separate games, but I do see the same Volgun looking guy in this trailer that is in Ground Zeroes,  Also at the end of the new trailer which you can watch below is a teaser that says “V” Has come to.  hmm….What do you all think?

REVENGENGENENCE!!!!!!

This week at the Tokyo Game Show, a new trailer and new gameplay demo of Metal Gear Solid Revengeance was shown, and holy crap was the footage epic!  I’ll let you look for youself and we’ll talk more about it after the videos.

 Tokyo Game Show Trailer (English Version)

 

Gameplay Demo from TGS 

HOLY CRAP!!! Multi-armed lady, the cyborg dog thing that talked, I think, the dude that could segment himself to jump down the building, the giant forklift looking boss at the end of the trailer.  The fact that you can control the arm bots, and so much more!  I’m more excited for this game than I was during the last trailer and it shows that Kojima Productions still has wacky storytelling down pat paired with badass boss battles.  I can’t wait to get my hands on this game in February.  How about all of you? are you excited for this one?

and let’s take one more look at how bad ass the multi-armed lady looks!

Game 71: Contra III: The Alien Wars

Contra III: The Alien Wars
Konami
1992

Alright boys and girls, it’s time to strap in and conquer some aliens and protect the earth and what not…. Although, dont bother trying to konami kode your way to the top on this one. Unless you have the Japanese version of the game the code is useless.

You find yourself once again protecting the earth from alien invaders however this time, they mean busy. They are sending everything but the kitchen sink, mainly because i dont think aliens have kitchens… im probably wrong about this but who knows.  Anyways, its the year 2636 and the baddies are back at it. Bill and Lance have since retired, so enther Jimbo and Sully. They’ll be your tour guides through hell and back.

As far as the story goes thats it. As with most run and guns there isnt much for story. That would distract from the simplistic nature of these types of games. Therfore, they found other ways to advance the game play. New weapon types: Whip Flame Gun, Crusher Missles and Homing Missles amongst others. Also the palyer also now carry bombs that will destroy just about all the enemies on the screen.  The levels are also now interactive in some parts. You can grab poles and ceilings to climb across. You are able to also destroy buildings and scenery and even hijack tanks.

Along with the side scrolling there is also a couple top view stages in the game. the player stays point in the direction they are facing and the direction pad moves them pointed that way. you can change the facing direction with the l and r buttons. The graphics for the snes were just enough to handle this for one player meaning that instead of being able to have two players on these levels it goes to a split screen and each player must do it on their own.

Chachi Says: As far as installments go this does what it is supposed to do. Gives a new version of a classic game and does not fail in doing so. Advancements are made where they could and should be made and its an enjoyable playing experience for those Run and Gun fans.
