    Is it me or I thought division was pretty good considering Watch dogs and AC games since 2014(except rogue and the 2d games)

    The question I asked him was if he happened to perform unofficially some QA on other titles that he did not developed at Konami in the 80’s for the MSX…
    What I want to quantify is if his vision impacted, through consulting, other great titles I love, strangely quickly after Penguin Adventure MSX, mostly MSX2 titles like “Treasure of Usas” or other “Knightmare series”, Vampire Killer (aka Castelvania), etc..
    I want to know who was Konami and who he was at this time.
    I tried to keep it all pretty neutral even if Konami is concerned, but he’ll probably won’t answer this one..

    • It’s a good question. Can’t see why he can’t answer it. He was with Konami for 30 years and Kojima can’t ignore it, otherwise there is no reason for Q&A other than some talk about his new studio and his next game. I don’t expect Kojima to talk about his next game at this Q&A really, so it’s an industry talk. He should tell about his past, present and the future.

        Yeah you are right. You know how it usually goes… Avoiding unnecessary buzzs… The guy is just magic, I feel so “hem” when people state he is over-rated.. Without the slightest exaggeration, he so heavily crafted the industry (not only stealth) with his ideas ! ;D

  • We need more of this, but in Europe. xD

      Question : Is this skull actually Snake’s ??? Not suable legally, but still Snake ? Forget it, I am just dreaming… 😀 Although that would break bunch of walls !

  • MichaelPayneV

  • MichaelPayneV

    So Snake (Hideo) left Fox (Konami) and visited The Patriots (Ubisoft), nice !

  • stocchinet .

    It feels like he’s making alliances all around the world to gather a massive army to overthrow the whole game industry
