    I inevitable have to chuckle when I see him try to look cool, try so very hard.

    Am I the only one expecting this to be really quite dull? He’ll probably just talk about game development and stuff that’s only interesting if you work in the industry.

    Oh, and he’ll probably make a completely innocent comment that’s quickly taken completely out of context and then reported on every gaming site as proof positive that he’s heading MGS5 and it’ll be exclusive to the Wii, or something.

    Yes Johnny… there are two games that I would die happy if they were made. ZOE3 is one of them. The other is Golden Sun 3.

    Shame on you Kojima… GDC is awesome for you developers… No so much for us fans.

    Damn, missed the start of this due to that Ratchet & Clank story.

    Best keynote ever. You can tell he’s building up to a reveal.

    #23 6 years ago
  24. Shatner

    He’s going to reveal there is no reveal. Such is the mark of a true master.

    #24 6 years ago
  25. Johnny Cullen

    I have MGS5 and Zone of the Enders 3 stories ready to run, should he announce something! :D

    They’ll be on N4G in seconds! XD

    “Kojima’s probably showing the next 15 Metal Gear games on PS4.”

    Wow that looks like its gonna be a looooong 90 minutes.

    #27 6 years ago
  28. Mike

    “If I’d given up, there would be no Metal Gear. Or Splinter Cell. ”

  32. Roybott

    wow that was… erm… anti-climatic!

    #32 6 years ago

    It was said that hes wasnt going to announce anything. I dont see why people were so excited to hear this.

    #33 6 years ago
  34. Shatner

    What’s people’s problem? He said there’d be no reveal or anything and there wasn’t.

    People need to listen. Not just hear what they want to hear.

    That is a limitation.
    But you can overcome it.
    Not listening is like a wall.
    Learn to overcome it.
    These are the impossible things of today.
    But tomorrow it can be possible.

    YOU RIKE?!?

    I wasn’t expecting a game announcement, but his talk was about overcoming limitations and he seemed to build up towards something. The end just seemed like it was missing some really wise words or more of a end point… guess it might just have come across that way due to text blogging.

  37. Cort


    Nooooo! I can actually understand what the **** he is saying now.

    #37 6 years ago
  38. Shatner


    There’s no pleasing you lot is there?

    #38 6 years ago
  39. Syrok

    So are you or you not going to spin the words “The next Metal Gear” into an announcement?


    Edit: Heh, I see EG already did just that.^.^

    Impossible. I want hardware and software. And a ladder.

    #41 6 years ago
  42. Mike

    Tear down the wall.

    #42 6 years ago
  43. Shatner

    PS4 will be so big you have to use a ladder to reach the disc slot.
