What's happening with Kojima, guys?

Konami has been having a bad couple of weeks. Rumors have been flying around of Hideo Kojima's departure for some time, with no solid confirmation of what's actually happening with his employment. Then, Silent Hills gets... read
Konami could probably use some ideas
My Silent Hill would be a place you couldn't trust. Doors would disappear behind you the moment you turned your back, hallways and staircases would loop back in impossible ways, main streets would abruptly end or lead to a pa... read feature

It breaks his 'greasy heart'

That Metal Gear Online trailer is still so dang good


Now with commentary
Mar 04
Steven covered this well-edited footage of Metal Gear Online in December, but here it is again with commentary by online community manager Robert Peeler. Yep, that's good enough for me. The balloon-firing trap shown at 1:54 is the stuff of dreams. Same goes for the enchanting plush puppy. (At one point it was going to be a "real" dog, but the designers didn't want us to shoot that.) read
