We'll also be discussing expectations for the announced Metal Gear Solid movie, Will Hideo Kojima be able to pull this off?

Also, Blizzard has blocked access in Iran. Why?

And yep... Snake Plissken is a John Carpenter creation! Escape From New York (brilliant) and a less brilliant Escape From LA... The problem with movies based on games is that the thing that makes a film brilliant is quite different from the thing that makes a game great. You can have three thousand hours of good Metal Gear games CGI scenes, but that's not why the games are great, it's because of the game itself, gameplay, pace, setting and so on. That's why most game based movies fall short of expectations. Not holding my breath for a Metal Gear movie...


will an audio only download be uploaded?
