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?
