Kojima: I shall only look forward doing my best

Kojima has made no secret of the fact that he is a huge fan of the Mad Max movies, and the new one that just came out managed to surpass his expectations. Recently he praised the movie on Twitter, saying: “MAD MAX2 always ranked in top 5 of my life time, never thought any sequel will beat but that was a mistake. This one directed by George Miller had easily exceeded that masterpiece. This movie isn’t only for fans in old days but also for women who fight for freedom.” In another tweet he said: “Saw MADMAX:FURY ROAD on IMAX. I’ll go see everyday when its out. Cheers to MAXs not to run away but fight for future. What a lovely day.”

He has also mentioned before that MGSV was influenced by Mad Max 2, in the sense that the story is mostly told through the characters surrounding the protagonist, and the fact that the protagonist himself doesn’t have as much lines.

Today, Kojima met with George Miller, the director, and meeting with this creator he admired so much seems to have given him new energy.


“My maestro George Miller, a real passionate, full of talent creator. I shall only look forward doing my best. Thx.”

It looks like Miller’s passion has inspired Kojima as a creator. Currently he is in the process of putting the finishing touches on his most ambitious game yet, but we still don’t know what will happen after development wraps up, with strong rumors going around of Kojima leaving the company he has worked at for 30 years. Whatever the future brings, let’s hope he can continue to create with the same passion.

    Kojima-san <3 .

  • Like it should be always. Like a big boss.
    I do the same with my musical works, and never is enough, there is always room for improveness and to do it better (and frustration too, lol). 🙂

    Have a nice day 🙂

  • Kawaii Monster

    Konami must;ve ran out of metal chains that binded him, lol all jokes aside can’t wait to get my hands on my copy, just 88 more days (“*o*”)

    I wish you good luck with whatever you do in the future ;), follow your dreams :D!

    To honor Kojima-san and MGSV:TPP, I am ready with my sweet PS4 for the game of all times. (sry for camera quality)

  • Sn4ke_911

    Might as well post this here too.

    Looks like someone got the magazine.

    Be careful with spoilers, i don’t know how spoiler-ish that is.

    But man this quote:

    “Kojima’s direction and unflinching commitment to challenging
    expectations and conventions make it the most tense experience ever
    hosted on Playstation.”


    • Batzi

      I read everything till I reached the spoilers part. Is it really that big of a spoiler?

      • Sn4ke_911

        I have no idea but a few people who read it said it’s a light spoiler so yeah…

        but the guy who leaked that info also said there are new screenshots in the magazine.

        For example:

        “There’s a pic of Snake driving a jeep with DD sitting next to him in the passenger seat”


        • Batzi

          Yea I read that. Dude I am so fucking tempted to read the spoiler part!

          and btw, the part where it says the hospital scene is going to be a game changer. WOW!

          • Sn4ke_911

            Yeah holy shit, the opening must be MIND BLOWING!

          • Batzi

            But they said it opens with Big Boss waking up from the coma. They didn’t say anything about the post-GZ hospital scene where you see both Kaz and BB in the emergency room. :S

          • Gatsu

            Yeah it’s gonna be sooooo freakin epic XD, I’ve been waiting to play that beginning for so long!!!

            Everyone keeps praising it and for a damn great reason for sure :D, golden cutscene stuff and as they said “a real game changer”.

          • Batzi

            I read the spoiler part. It’s not really a spoiler.

          • Gatsu

            Hmm yeah, true :P. But I guess it depends how some people think of what is a spoiler and what’s not. Imo it really wasn’t one.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Isn’t what BB has, a bit spoiler though? (l mean the shrapnel part. Those who read it know what l’m talking about.)

          • Batzi

            Yea that was new to me but again, not big of a deal.

      • Gatsu

        Yeah well there is some that could be considered as spoiler maybe, like what happen after when you find Kaz.

        I read it all because couldn’t ignore ;D. So awesome game going to be!

        • WhatTheJuicay

          I’m reading thru you guys comments. Thank you for restraining yourselves from revealing spoilers while talking about them, even if you wouldn’t consider them spoilers.

      • Braden Gunn

        Not really, it just tells you about the arrival of an enemy we already know about, nothing that will ruin the game for you 🙂

    • Gatsu

      Oh my god that was so good thanks! The waiting needs to go a lot faster, ’cause I need to play this right now >:O .

  • Braden Gunn

    I’m not going to lie I’d love it if George Miller and Kojima came to some sort of arrangement where Kojima could make a Mad Max game on the condition that Miller is allowed to make a Metal Gear film xD

    • WhatTheJuicay

      Get Neil Blomkamp to do the visual effects for the film and it’d be a perfect tradeoff.

  • Sn4ke_911

    Ok I just got some scans.

          Even with his arm torn off and his flessh shredded by 108 foreing bodies- a mix of sharpnel and human teeth, explains the doctor.
          How does a good man go Bad ?

          Listen the doors : the end while you read it

        • Niko

          Bro I love you, you made my evening. Thank you 😀

      • Joaquin Romero Victorica

        108 :
        The well known bas-relief carving at the famous Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia relates the Hindu story of a serpent being pulled back and forth by 108 gods and asuras (demons), 54 gods pulling one way, and 54 asuras pulling the other, to churn the ocean of milk in order to produce the elixir of immortality. According to the Oriental Architecture site there are 5 monumental guardian gates to the fortified temple city of Angkor Thom. In front of each gate stand giant statues of 54 gods (to the left of the causeway) and 54 demons (to the right of the causeway) which represent the churning of the ocean.

    • Gatsu

      Hoooooly shit, I’m reading through it now and just had to reply to your post. Thanks again Sn4ke :D, so hyped for this omg!!!

      Also this is fun one= DD Pros: man,s best friend turns out to be Soviet man’s worst enemy” lol. Back to read, so much info …

      • RJRO

        hey @Gatsu is there any big spoile or is it just the perfect amount for the Hype train?

        • kirtanloorii

          I don’t know about Gatsu, but I didn’t feel like there were any spoilers. All of the story content mentioned consists of things we already know. Everything else is really cool gameplay news.

        • Mr.Pony

          Go ahead and read, no major spoilers but some hilarious ideas to try out

      • Mr.Pony

        “There is so much we could tell you. Like what happens if you try to
        Fulton Revolver Ocelot. Or how we came to be in possession of a cassette
        tape of bear growls. Or how to manipulate the Afghani postal services.”

        Big Boss the terror of the postal service, BEST…GAME…EVER

    • Gatsu

      “Heaven’s not my kind of place anyway…”

      I had to read it through quite fast, but OH MAAAN so much stuff packed into the game seriously. As Kojima said for some it might be too big to finish XD, “scale is dizzying” etc. A MASTERFUL game incoming.

      Time to get some sleep, now can have sweet dreams 😉 !

    • Golgari

      A lot of information to be honest that we already knew from tweets. Xbox magazine did it poorly in my opinion.
      Yes, the game is going to be great but telling us about Phantom Cigar from the last trailer or Bear that was from tweets is not that impressive for so much pages.

      yes, there are some small little interesting details about Hospital scene and some really cool quotes from Ocelot/Big Boss… But…

      Anyway, Thank You Sn4ke for some info. That was great.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        Lol its Xbox magazine. They don’t know what REALLY makes MGS interesting.

    • FOX

      Nice post thanks 🙂

    • LiquidCampbell


    • Just finished reading it, what a nice reading. Even with a couple fo spoilers, i don’t care.

      Does someone have the OPM scans? Thanks 🙂

    • gerber

      D-Walker pros: The only buddy that doesn’t need to poop. Quiet pooping in the middle of the mission confirmed

      D-Horse con: not great against tanks. Dammit! My plans are ruined

  • FOX

    So big boss will be like Claude in GTA3,lol

  • Null

    It’s great to see a big and lovely smile from Kojima after the hellish events from the past couple of months. It sure will give him a spirit boost for this final phase. The Best truly is Yet to Come.

  • PrinceHeir
    • Gatsu

      Awesome :)!

  • Crazyboi_06

    FUCK KONAMI!!!!!! happy to see kojima happy…i hope something good comes his way after the mgs5 release
