Know When Enough is Enough!

I first had another idea for what to write about in my Sunday post. After the Kojima event that happened this week I had to change my mind.

So apparently Hideo Kojima thinks that he is the God of gaming. Earlier in the week he had launched a flash site as a teaser to his next project. Understand that before the site launched he has teased it at GDC (Game Developers Conference), then a full two page ad appeared in Famitsu magazine giving a date of 5/18/09 and a URL. If you went to the URL it was a field with wind blowing. Well May 18th came and a timer popped up and it started thundering and lightning flashing ‘5’ in the background. I had picked up on the timer at 90 hours. Well 90 hours later I went back to the site to watch the countdown end. When it ended another timer came up with 120 hours and it started raining popping up ‘!’, ‘e’, ‘E’, and ‘3’.

So now what has happened here? We have an announcement of an announcement of an announcement of an announcement of an announcement. Holy shit! That brings me to my topic. Know when enough is enough! Regardless of how you felt about the MGS series, Hideo Kojima is not the God of games. Who does he think he is to be as absurd as teasing this much. I know, you’re thinking that I’m only pissed because I want to know. To be honest I don’t give a shit about Hideo Kojima or his MGS game/movie. I know his fans expect this sort of thing. You can’t help but to think that some of them might be a bit pissed.

It’s not just Kojima that does this crap. It’s the right time of the year for all of the teases and announcements. With E3 only about a week away. You always expect stuff like this. For some reason though the whole Kojima thing really hit me the wrong way. I write this not just to bitch about Hideo Kojima but all the stupid teases and announcements that happen. If you have an announcement just say it. I can understand saying that on whatever day you have an announcement, but to have a lead up like developers are doing now is just plain retarded.

By the way if you want to keep track of the stupid Kojima countdown just click this link. Also I should throw in there that I don’t think that it’s a MGS game just so you know.

  • I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with the MGS ‘movie’, but only time will tell.
