Take that, Konami: Kojima to be honored at D.I.C.E. Awards ceremony

What the hell's up with that wild new Kojima Productions logo?

Hideo Kojima took former Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkawa with him to serve as the art director for Kojima Productions. The result? A Giger-looking logo much more in line with Shinkawa's style than the previous slick KojiPro fox. Kojim...

Obscure Video Games
Konami used to have a sense of humor. The long-defunct Parodius series is well-loved for being a wacky send-up of its hardcore shoot-'em-up Gradius. Even more obscure, however, are the Wai Wai games, which (outside of Konami ...   read
