And it looks pretty dope.  I have a Kotobukiya Female Shepard Bishoujo statue, and the detail and art work was amazing. (See my original post here)

Slated to be released apparently in Q2 of 2016.  Too long, but will be waiting for it for sure.  Prices will most likely be around $80-$100 USD.  More to follow when more details arise.

Metal Gear Sahelanthropus Figure Looks Freakin’ Dope!

The only thing I can say about this game at the moment is, wow, that was the best intro/tutorial I have ever done.  The graphics are top notch, the voice acting superb thus far, controls – tight.  I do not have one single complaint yet about this game, but granted I have only played the intro/tutorial.  Below are some choice grabs. (or grabs that I was able to get or remember to get since I was too engrossed on what was going on)

Note: There may or  may not be some spoilers.  You have been warned.

Hideo Kojima’s swan song for the Metal Gear series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hit store shelves today and if it’s anything like last year’s teaser, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, this should be a doozy. (more…)

MGSV IRL! Sorta

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which is a prologue to The Phantom Pain, is slated to come out in Spring 2014, with TPP to follow sometime later. But it seems semi related instances have been surfacing in the wild recently.

Honda has developed a device called Walking Assist. It’s an apparatus which apparently aids individuals with walking difficulties get by on their own two legs with a little nudge from said contraption. It’s purpose is to aid in the rehabilitation of those who have suffered from traumatic events such as a stroke or perhaps a car accident. (more…)

MGSV Ground Zeroes English Version of 2013 TGS Demo

Following PS4’s Launch Party on Spike TV last night, Konami today has just released an English version of the MGSV Ground Zeroes 2013 TGS Demo that’s as shown a few months ago. Kojima Production’s Sean Eyestone was narrating the familiar gameplay in English, pointing out all the bullet points of what can be done in Ground Zeroes. During gameplay we can hear Kaz Miller (Robert Atkin Downes) giving Snake mission directives via codec. In the section during Snake’s enemy interrogation we can hear Kiefer Sutherland say “Spit it out!” (more…)

Seriously, Kojima?!

I waited all day in anticipation for what would be in store for Spike TV‘s PS4 Launch Night. I was hoping to see something really exciting, perhaps jaw dropping from Hideo Kojima‘s little presentation among all the others. Well, I guess I’ll still be waiting because whatever that was Wasn’t what I was expecting.

I was expecting to have my mind blown. Instead, what he treated us to was little more than a throwback to MGS1. His presentation showed an exclusive level in MGSV for PS4 called Deja Vu Mission. This is a PS4 only mission that lets us play as Classic Snake, aka the pixelated incarnation of Solid Snake from MGS1 during the PSX days.

I was amused for 5 seconds but when I realized that THIS was the ONLY THING Kojima Was serving his fans tonight it left me confused and bit annoyed. Usually when Kojima makes announcements they’re pretty worth my while. This time around it left a bad taste in my mouth. This demo was little more than another nostalgic nod to the MGS fans. The thing is, it’s already been done. IN A WHOLE GAME. Which game, you ask? Metal. Gear. Solid. 4. Guns. Of. The. Patriots. That whole game was a tribute to fans. It was drowning in fan service. I enjoyed it. But I’m over it and its been 5 whole years! I thought somehow that perhaps this Deja Vu Mission would show Classic Snake all dressed up with the FOX Engine. NOPE. Same ole blocky mofo. This feels like a missed opportunity at some Real fan service. Kojima could have given ole Solid that next gen shine by actually creating him via FOX Engine specifically for this Mission. Shit, even MGS4 had Young Solid Snake face camo that Old Snake could put on along with Classic Snake face camo.
