Okay, since I heard about this load of bulls#!t a few days ago, I just lost so much faith in this damn industry, I swear to god. What gives Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima any f**king right to say that to Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai? NOTHING!!!!! If he's not going to put in an effort on Wii U, than he has no right to say that s#!t. Okay, I think I'll calm down for a second, but you won't believe how pissed off I am at this. You all know that Solid Snake was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and most of us were expecting his return in the next entry in the series, but after hearing this come out of Kojima's fanboy mouth, I really hope Sakurai turns Kojima down....OH not just turn him down, but give him the finger and turn him down in style!!! (Ok, maybe that won't happen, but I would actually pay to see that!) Well, all of us know that Kojima is not planning to bring Metal Gear Solid V over to Wii U as well, because he "doesn't know what to do with the Wii U gamepad, and can't think of any ideas." Then, after that, he requests that Snake be in the next Smash Bros. game, even though he's not going to do anything on Wii U. That right there is what pisses me off. And you know what else? Kojima said that there would be tablet integration for MGSV as well........He snubbed Nintendo fans of a game that would fit perfectly on Wii U. He said he couldn't come up with any ideas for the Wii U gamepad, yet he announces that there will be tablet integration for MGSV. I have already lost a ton of respect for Kojima, and since I heard about this, I pretty much lost all respect for the dude. I already am starting to hate Kojima, and not just because he won't release his games on my preferred brand of consoles. And for anyone who brings up the damn sales argument as to why he won't put MGSV on Wii U, listen very carefully here. The Wii U has sold about 6 million units worldwide, about the same amount of the PS4, and 2.5 million more than the Xbox One. Also, if sales had anything to do with a console not getting a lot of 3rd party support, why did the Sega Saturn get more 3rd party support than the N64 (and the Saturn was the hardest console to develop for of the 5th gen, and it totally bombed (9 million units sold worldwide!!))? Why did the Dreamcast get more 3rd party support than the GameCube? Why does the Dreamcast have a bigger library than the GameCube? So the sales argument has been totally disproven here. Anyway, back on topic. Kojima has a lot of nerve saying that. IMO, Snake does not deserve & shouldn't even be in the next Smash Bros (and I don't think Sakurai would even listen to him), UNLESS Kojima takes the time and actually puts MGSV or some more of his games on Wii U. Him and Konami could have worked something out with Nintendo, like cross-promoting Snake in the next Smash Bros. and Metal Gear Solid V (if it were coming to Wii U), but instead, Konami and Kojima already decided that they were never going to work on Wii U before the console even hit store shelves. All I have to say is that Kojima can go f**k himself. He's had a massive Sony bias for over 15 years now, and I hope Sakurai turns that Sony fanboy down (hopefully in style!!!). He has barely done anything with Nintendo consoles, besides release a remake (Twin Snakes), and a 3DS port (Snake Eater 3D). His terrible treatment of the Nintendo fanbase and his gigantic Sony bias are some of the many reasons people despise Kojima, and I don't blame them one bit. Snake does not deserve to be in the next Smash Bros, unless Kojima actually gives Nintendo fans some of his games. Sorry, but that's not how things work. Having Snake in Brawl was a deal of f**king honor, and what does Kojima give us Nintendo fans back? A 3DS port of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. THAT'S IT!! You know what they say, "Don't ask for things unless you can return the favor; you work to earn." IMO Snake does not deserve to be in the next Smash, and I can think of quite a few 3rd party characters that are way more worthy of being in the next Smash Bros., like a Resident Evil character or two, Leon S. Kennedy first comes to mind, since Resident Evil 2 (a game Leon starred in) hit the Nintendo 64 in 1999 and was the first RE game to appear on a Nintendo system, plus he was also in the timed GameCube exclusive Resident Evil 4, so if a RE character were to appear in Smash, it would most likely be Leon S. Kennedy. Plus, Resident Evil has had a massive history on Nintendo systems, and almost every single game in the series are on Nintendo platforms, with 2 games (Resident Evil Remake and Resident Evil 0) still being NINTENDO EXCLUSIVE!!! Sora from Kingdom Hearts is also another strong contender as well, since more than half of the series has been released on Nintendo platforms. Cecil Harvey from Final Fantasy IV is also another contender IMO too, since FFIV was on Super Nintendo, and it's the most ported FF game ever, as it has been rereleased on GBA and it got a 3D remake on DS too, so why not give good 'ol Cecil a chance, eh? Heck, even Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes is an excellent contender as well, since both NMH games are Wii exclusive, and I think he has a moveset that would work well in Smash Bros. And you know who else could be a possible contender? Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia. Tales of Symphonia is the best selling Tales series game and is Nintendo exclusive (except for Japan), also almost half the series has been released on Nintendo consoles (Phantasia, Symphonia, Hearts, Innocence, Graces, Abyss, ToS: Dawn of the New World (also featuring Lloyd)), you get the point. But then my fellow GS user SloganYams would come over and disagree with me, saying that Pac-Man would be way more worthy. Well, I actually disagree on that statement, since Pac-Man isn't really as popular as he used to be, as he was massively overshadowed by other mascots like Mario and Sonic over the past 2-3 decades. Well, those are my picks, let me know if you have any. Snake does not deserve to be in the next Smash after Kojima's recent ramblings. After hearing that, Kojima just showed to me as a gamer and a longtime Nintendo fan that he does not like, nor care for Nintendo at all, and I really hope Sakurai and Nintendo never ever gives him anything that he desires ever again, because he is just like 95% of those 3rd party developers who treat Nintendo and their fans like second-class citizens. Mark my words, Kojima & Konami are going to regret ignoring Nintendo and the Wii U. It's going to come back and bite them in the ass.
Please comment and let me know what you think. Thanks!
