Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Kojima Productions’ Teaser Countdown Whatever

Frankly I’ve kind of given up on really caring about this becauseĀ  I haven’t been excited about a Hideo Kojima game since Metal Gear Solid 2 and I have no hope (or faith) that it’ll be anything other than another MGS title. If only because Konami is, after all, a business.

That being said a lot of people are excited so here goes!

In the past weeks if you recall Kojima put up a teaser site with a countdown….which led to another countdown. And now the countdown is not even over but we already basically have an answer. On the infamous site we can now see a picture of Big Boss. So this in essence confirms that the “secret” project is indeed Metal Gear 5.

Whether it will be Raiden, Solid or whatever is not known yet but can be sure that as expected it’s not Snatcher or Z.O.E. Also a leaked scan from the next Famitsu seems to be showing Raiden so there’s also that.

Next Kojima Game Keeps Teasing….Sort Of

So last week we just got a stormy background and people started speculating that it could be the next Metal Gear game since it had been rumored that Raiden might be the hero of this one and raiden means thunder in Japanese. Good idea but nothing more until recently.

Now the site features a countdown to Thursday 21st at 6:00pm. On a loop you can see a figure flashing which could either be a “5” or an “S”. Feeding the specualtions even more since gamer are praying for a Snatcher 2 game which is highly unlikely but one can hope.

Hideo Kojima has stated numerous time that he would not work on another Metal Gear title but I’m pretty sure come Thursday we will all know otherwise.

Until then let’s hope for Snatcher 2.
