I for one will jump off a cliff how about you guys?
Laugh at fanboys who I know 100% have emotional attachments to their plastic Machine and it’s GAMES.
Luckily I don’t need a gaming sites review or score to tell me if a game is good or not,as having more than one brain cell allows me to judge my purchase by looking at actual gameplay and narrative of a game.
Which in DS’s case is being hid better than a squirrel’s nuts
Id have to try it for myself. Film reviews for example, typically when the reviews are good, the film sucks, and when the film gets panned, the film is actually good. So unless it is blatantly obvious something is wrong because of a control issue, gotta take reviews with a grain of salt.
Drink a chocolate shake I guess.
I'm probably in the minority here but I have no plans to buy it. I'm not a fan of most of Kojima's games. I enjoyed the first MGS on PS1. I beat MGS 2 but didn't really enjoy it. Then I tried MGS V for the nostalgia but never beat it. Kind of done with his odd storylines.
Laugh in vindication?
Kojima's always been held up by his fans as some messianic messenger that's far too advanced for us simple plebes to understand his brilliance that we'll finally grasp fifty years from now when his prophecies will be understood, when in point of fact he writes nothing but pretentious, convoluted, prepubescent virgin-esque fantasies dressed up as so-called thought provoking stories that attempt to explore incredibly complex themes and subtext. The guy knows how to design mechanically and technologically brilliant games, that's undeniable for anyone who's played them, but as a storyteller and writer? He's an absolute laughingstock.
He reputably wanted to initially be a filmmaker before he got into games. Good thing he didn't, because at least his talents in harnessing gaming medium's strengths are enough to compensate for the utter mediocrity in his inability to harness those mediums who are dependent solely on narrative, which if he attempted, he'd be mocked mercilessly on. There's a good reason he's a game maker; the industry and refuge of talentless hack writers, and not cinema, which while not necessarily a place that doesn't suffer poor writing, is nevertheless much less unforgiving of it because (aside CGI) it has nothing else to piggyback on.
