Watch Kojima receive his Industry Icon Award at The Game Awards 2016

During The Game Awards 2016 Hideo Kojima has received the Industry Icon Award. After being blocked from attending last year’s award ceremony by Konami’s lawyers, producer and host Geoff Keighley considered it to be ‘one of the most important things’ to have the famous game designer attend this time.

Geoff Keighley introduced Kojima in a speech in which he talked about what went down last year, and how much it meant for him to give this award to Kojima. “For most of the past year I’ve tried – very unsuccessfully – to give Hideo the award he rightfully won last year for Metal Gear Solid V. […] I first offered to ship it to him, but I couldn’t get the address of his new studio. Then I said ‘I drive this myself out to Las Vegas to personally hand it to him when I saw him in February and he politely declined that. And I soon found out why. He is such a principal person that eventually word came back to me that Hideo just said: Geoff, I can’t have that blood on my hands. He had to move on. And today, Hideo is rebuilding his life and his studio with our support.” Geoff also noted the circumstances under which Kojima had to finish MGSV, locked inside a room with no direct contact with his team. “Like Snake said in MGS, Hideo knows that a strong man doesn’t need to read his future, he makes his own.” Geoff concluded, after which he presented the award to Kojima.

    Boom

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    What the fuck did I just watch?

    I can’t… I love you Kojima.

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    God I need to watch that trailer again. I can’t even focus on the show now. I think I may just go to bed and watch the Death Stranding trailer again once I wake up.

  • Hablais

    Well, Game awards are practically over…Kojima got his award, we saw more of Stranded…what could possibly top this?

  • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

    Time to mute the show – the trailer is here:

      Mads looks so intense. The way he looked and moved; it just felt so evil. I think I’m going to rewatch Hannibal tomorrow 😛

        I gotta rewatch too xD

      I love this poster

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      Shut up and take my money!

  • Who cares about Stupid Awards show…
    This was incredible.

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      Yeah. I’ve just been re-watching the trailer over and over. I knew I wasn’t crazy when I thought something huge was going to drop today 😛

      • Same. Rewatching it for the 4th time.

        • Hablais

          Any clue on who the big guy is (the old guy)?

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            Del Toro? I dunno who he is supposed to be playing. My first thought was the baby in the canister is Norman, but I don’t think that’s the case.

          • Hablais

            Oh yea, I didn’t see it lol
            Hm…but he weirdly looks out of place, doesn’t he?
            Like he doesn’t belong?
            Or is that just me?

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            I think that’s the point.

          • Jav

            Guillermo del toro. But I don’t think he will be in the game. He is not listed in the cast.

        • Venom_Sina

          I’m downloading for a 24 hour run 😛

    • Jav

      We have to thank them for showing the trailer at the beginning. Now we don’t have to wait ’till the end.

  • proceeder

    Holly Fucking Shiiiiiit! did anyone see that Death Stranding trailer?! Mads Mikkelson and Guielmore Del Toro and that graphic man! Phew!

  • Hablais

    God, do they try hard at that show…what is even going on…

  • I like how Kojima made happy horror fans, Metal Gear fans… Everyone in this.
    I know people will start ruse cruise trailer to death… But that’s not important honestly. Important part here is that this trailer makes everyone happy.

      You owe me a beer, Golg ! ;D

  • Lex Radu

    I love how Mads Soldiers are “Literally” being “Skulls”

    Also, the Technology, especially when Mads Googles disappear, that’s EXACTLY, like The Skulls from MGSV!

  • BurntFM

    Now I want to see the Mo-Cap session of Gillermo del Toro LOL that would be amazing.

  • Lex Radu
    • I like how with this shot this is basically Metal Gear… It’s great.

      • Tom Brearley-Smith

        That moment when ‘Death Stranding’ looks more ‘Metal Gear’-like than ‘Metal Gear Survive’.

        • Full Options

          Hahaha !!! / Yeah !

  • Lex Radu

    I have been waiting for the opportunity to use this meme with Metal Gear!
    No hate, just a joke!

    • Kojima created both so…

      The skeletons’ skulls can be seen while the parasite army look like they are covered in shit in the mist

      Kept you waiting, Strange!

    • Serpent

      Notice when they remove the goggles Snake talks while the other guy just makes a “Shhhh” gesture…

      • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

        Actually a warning gesture
        Remember the gesture your teacher or lecturer gave you when you were a kid as a kind of warning
        That’s the one xD

  • Lex Radu

    Wait, where those strands that dissolved…Liquid Snakes?

    Ba-dum-tssss

  • Lex Radu

    And the cut Solid ones with Venom, the’re Punished Snakes!

    • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

      It’s a needle man.I think it’s supposed to be some kind of ….
      Idk how to say this.

      • Lex Radu

        Facepalm: Duh, that’s not what i’m pointing out, not the object, but the positioning on the upper right forehead!

        • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

          It’s supposed to be Reedus’ representation
          But Reedus has no needle
          Kojima you sneaky bast…..

    • Not just an easter egg 😉

  • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

    KAECILLIUS YOU MOTHERFUCK……
    THOSE EYES!!!!

    • Gatsu

      Yep xD

  • Machine Gun Kid

    That baby holds the key to the future of man kind and the universe. Mads has other plans for it. Thats what I got out of it anyway

    • Aleezy

      Del toro’s the creator of the key. Last one I’m assuming.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Yea that or there’s some time travel/stargate hole thing going on linking the past with the future and the baby is del toro and he’s trying to change a timeline. Or del toro has zero to do with the game and he was just put into the trailer for the fun of it. I have no idea what I’m talking about guys. Sorry. Goodnight

        • Machine Gun Kid

          Death stranding back to the future lol mcfly!!

        • Aleezy

          I’m hoping he is in the game. I don’t know why he’s not on the credits though. He’s got the handcuffs and the umbilical thing. Mads got the umbilical thing going on as well that looks like he was powering up the skull crew too much causing him to leak/bleed out that black stuff and when he disconnected he got his full energy back.

          • Machine Gun Kid

            I don’t kno. Right now I’m thinking del toro was put in the trailer for fun. When the game is done and released reedus will be in place of del toro

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Ok scratch my above comment

  • Gatsu

    What was the song btw :O?

    • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

      All I know is that it was some cool synth.I love synths.

      • Gatsu

        I thought so too, but usually he add song name hmm.

        • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

          I think the song’s name from the OST was not put because it might contain a spoiler or a character name or a boss battle etc etc.
          Just like every soundtrack
          And there are not any place holder names for OSTs as far as I know

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      I’m 100% sure it’s the official OST. The music interested me as well, I found the way it was utilized very interesting: the closer Del Toro or the camera got closer to the strands of music faded in and became more intense.

    • Venom_Sina

      Probably from the OST. I don’t know why, but I think Ludvig Forssell is behind the music for this one.

      • And you are right!

        • Venom_Sina

          I knew it 😛 That picture from TGS 2016 led me to this point. Also the music is very similar to Ludvig’s style.

      • Aleezy

        Yea Ken confirmed that.

        • Venom_Sina

          Nice 🙂

  • Lex Radu

    Bridges: United Cities of America

    Alternate reality, looks like “Bio Mechanical” Warfare in an alternate WW2!

    Soooo basically Battlefield 1 Drugs! I like where is going, i like the Approach!

    Now we kinda has an idea what Death Stranding is, “Guns of The Patriots” on Earth and Space!

      It looks like Bridges is an integral character in DS, given the insignia, i would say that he is part of the government, maybe even the president!

  • FMercenary

    Oh my what the hell?!

  • SNKtheStampede

    I can’t watch the trailer untill this evening, I think I’ll die from anticipation.

  • FoxTamerMGO

    Now even after Geoff’s sincere speech about Kojima’s departure from konami.. PythonSelkan are now like “THIS IS ALL STAGED.. THIS IS SILENT HILLS DEVELOPED BY KONAMI” lol

    • Dr. Miles Manners

      What else do you expect from the guys behind “Venom Snake is Gray Fox”?

  • stocchinet .

    “i’ll do wathever the fuck he say” oh you can bet on it 😉

  • MrVux007

    Hello guys!
    By some miracle i had some time to watch a small part of the Game Awards and i am so glad for Hideo Kojima receiving a long overdue award.
    Congratulations Hideo and his team from the bottom of my heart.

    Now i usually say for all kinds of Game Award Shows,that the only GOTY-s that truly matter is you own personal ones and i usually go unscathed by some truly questionable award nominees and winners.
    But this years award show was by far the most “shocking” and bit disappointing one.

    Heck, from the places like Reddit,Tumblr,FB,Twitter and YouTube people are wee bit confused by some decisions,namely Overwatch getting an nomination and later on winning a GOTY award.

    I don’t know about you guys,but to me this must be the worse one so far since the year when World of Warcraft and GTA San Andreas won significantly more awards then the likes of MGS3 on that year.

    As for me,im currently near Tianjin(North-East area of China) enjoying nice weather and lost a lil bit of weight (preparing for that Christmas food),we will probably be in Hong Kong on New Year,so ill make sure to take picture of fireworks if im able.

    Much love guys! Peace out

    PS Its new Death Stranding footage…and in true Kojima game fashion,the crazy theories already started :_)

    • Gatsu

      Much love back to you bro <3!

    Hi mates,
    Geoff’s speech was really kind. I really appreciated this. Even if Boss never complained, the pain was so huge, I mean I felt it but when they said clearly that they took everything from him…
    When Hideo himself says “I thought I lost everything”… And this twist like “but I lost nothing”… “Thanks to all of you”… Very touching intro, wow…
    And really appreciated that they decided to clarify things at the beginning of the ceremony… What a BANG, haha !!!

    Regarding the trailer itself, the first slap in my face with the Del Torish intro… It was just awesome… I was just like (O_________O)…
    The overall theme looks so cool. Mads mesh quality is outstanding for real-time.. I think even slightly neater than Norman’s in the previous trailer…

    Feeeew there are so much details to analyze, that soooo cooooool !!! ;D
    This kind of… “egg” or something with the baby inside… Very promising techno, YEAH !
    As for the interrogation about “sticks” variety / range for the gameplay, I am pretty re-insured now. Well we may not have an as exhaustive choice as TPP’s, however the military presence, Mads assault rifle, mmm I am relax now regarding possible sniping tools ;D…
    All this is going to rock ! And even more is ahead this week-end with engine details and stuff !

  • Hablais

    Rewatching Kojima-sensei recieving his award and the speech of Mr. Keighly a thought crossed my mind.
    They seriously shat on Konamis face this evening.
    Was Konami even present?

    • Full Options

      Konami was even lucky I think because it could have been much worse / trash after what happened last year, but I believe they wanted to just move on and keep it just decent / turned to the future more than anything else.

  • Jav

    Could these 2 trailers be the work of a year?

    • Full Options

      That’s the most easily show-caseable stuff they can expose so far but definitely just the emerged part of the iceberg. Visually, that may just principally appear like Hideo’s, Yoji’s, Yano’s, and the cinematic team result however there are also less noticeable efforts. More technical ones like making the sample render properly in real-time and in 4K, which are also important efforts for the game as well.
      It is probably too hard for them to show anything more technical from the gameplay team(s) because even if they had yet cool playable proof of concepts, they would first need to be really stable and a bit packaged for considering show-casing them.
      Maybe we’ll hopefully have some very slight detail however this week-end at PSX, but I think we won’t unfortunately have much more gameplay stuff during next year.

      • Hablais

        Well, Kojima will be around all weekend. There will be more news regarding Death Stranding. just don’t expect any showcasing beyond this Trailer.

        • Full Options

          Relax, I am just expecting the engine’s name so far, nothing more. ;D

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            True. A 5 in-game trailer is realistically all that was possible for them to showcase by now (the fact it looks this good in so little time is another Koji-miracle).

            I don’t expect anything more: he’ll probably give us a vague breakdown of what happens in the trailer, how far they are into development and what engine they are using.

          • Full Options

            Some are suspecting this “DECIMA” is a SP or Guerrilla’s engine derivate, but without further official sources, I am still skeptical… I hope we’ll have some explanation soon ! ;D

          • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

            I personally think it’s SP engine. The lighting looks a bit similar although vastly improved.

          • Full Options

            Maybe / very possible… We need Koji-firmation in all cases ! ;D It is too hard to tell from raw shading because a lot of factors are involved, from modeling / texturing skills to shading techniques used. Future will tell, but I am happy with any engine, as far as we have Boss checking the QA and possibly ask his devs to tweak things here and there… 😀

          • LeGuyWhoDownedQuiet

            In-Engine? Yes
            But I don’t believe it is in-game
            Now feel free to tear me apart

      • Jav

        Yeah. I want to see something about the engine this weekend. Like the black kid in the forest with the fox engine. Or snake in a konami room.

        • Full Options

          I am afraid it is a bit too soon. For now I expect even just verbal details about the tech they are on, but who knows, maybe those details could come with one or two snapshots from inside the sandbox editor.. Don’t count on it in all cases..

    Look at his fucking expression. If that doesn’t scream Antagonist, I don’t know what could.

    • Gatsu

      Looks so awesome ^_^!

  • Mr.Pony

    Wow just wow, that trailer! This starts to look more and more like a a new snatcher game xD major vibes about some kind of alien “invasion” in that trailer. Mads looks perfect!

  • Serpent

    Ahhhh! This feeling… I know this feeling. When you are excited about a game and can’t stop thinking about it. Finally it came back. I’ts been a long time…

  • Jav
  • MrVux007

    Things i have noticed so far and some of these are quite obvious im sure.
    First Mads character is wearing an modern US BDU uniforms,N/V equipment,compass going haywire,M4-A1 custom while the other soldiers which are wearing US Airborne BDU https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f7c3535402cc00325d1b74488b381f252a33fb56c9b480c18a67e6f6dc314f9f.png unfiroms(note the patch) from WW2 with M1-Garand rifles.

    • Mr.Pony

      Plus all the soldiers appear to be either sekeletons or kind of sick. So far I’m guessing some kind of parasite. Although the cables on mads seem to be different from the strains on the planes, looks military almost, something like the nanomachines like meryl and her squad in MGS4

    • Jav

      In that tunnel there are hands marked in the walls.
