Nothing on Rising, huh?

5 / Echo / 2012年03月09日 20:57

Hey, I saw that the Square-enix Play arts team were on Hideoblog jpn. Unfortunately i can't speak Japanese could you tell us what they said?
Absolutly loving the new figures. Im hoping for MGS2&4 Snake and Raiden and Phyco Mantis

6 / Peace Runner / 2012年03月09日 23:42

Why is there no Peace Walker on the HD Collection for the PS Vita?

7 / Winter_Cat / 2012年03月11日 05:47

Hey guys,
First off, ecelent job on the recruitment campain at GDC. I got a chance to see the Konami booth at GDC, and I had gotten the impression that it was the HR people at the booth. I'm still curious about how KojimaProductions/Konami does their recruiting, both through events like these and normal recruiting, even though attending GDC has killed my immediate desire to work in a large studio like KP. My question is how does the industry usually recruit people into jobs?

8 / Raks / 2012年03月11日 12:56

Where can I download the full manual for the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection? The mini manual states that it would be on the Konami-Europe site but I can't seem to find it.

9 / Doll / 2012年03月11日 21:45

Yep, pretty dissapointed there was nothing on Rising. Seems like Metal gear solid 5 is getting information out faster than rising :(

Sean SnakeEyes-ton XD

11 / MilkyAlien / 2012年03月14日 11:27

Please say MGS3 will have PhotoCamo on the Vita. It would be such a wasted oppourtunity if it isn't.

12 / Callum Hurley / 2012年03月14日 22:00

I now own Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater, it's AMAZING! It's my best game on 3DS, however, when I buy my Vita Version, I hope you dont shoot your own 3DS version in the foot by giving it the same features :/ However I hope that 3DS gets its own exclusive soon, even if its not important like Portable Ops :) Keep up the great work guys :)

Hey guys, great podcast. Seems like it's warming up over there. We hardly had a winter our selves here in Canada. It's going to hit 22C here soon! Anyway I had a question regarding E3, I know it maybe to soon to answer anything but what do you guys plan to show? Fox Engine? The next Metal Gear Solid that you've been teasing? Rising? Or will it be events and other things you plan to do for the 25th Anniversary.

Keep the podcasts coming, love you guys. Don't work yourselves too hard! ;)

Hmmm..... the bosses horse in the conference room, I wonder if Big Boss will be riding that in the next game...?? YESH!!!

What irritates me more than the actual new direction of the game [Rising] is the way you don't acknowledge the huge amount of extremely justified concerns that people have voiced. Side-stepping and explaining away these concerns through vaguely ignoring and misrepresenting community consensus is the wrong way to treat fans.

A lot evidence suggests that Kojima Productions as a studio is simply not able to develop games in the current industry climate. That's a problem. This needs to be recognised, and although the documentary did this to an extent, acting as if everything is fine damages my confidence in the studio.

I have an open mind. I do not have interest in Metal Gear Rising at this time. That is not a contradiction. I’ve looked at it, assessed what you have shown objectively, and found little value in it.

If your studio / platinum needs to do something new, then *do something new*. A brand-new set of fundamental gameplay philosophies should be part of a new series, not a mutated corpse version of an older one. This would also save the mutilation of a series that Kojima has spent decades constructing, establishing tone for, and attempting to conclude.

Obviously a huge reason behind the existence of this game is the desire to not put to waste the huge amount of left-over content produced for the previous project. Therein lies another huge problem with the motivations for this game’s development.

I wish you would not keep saying not to worry because the game is a spin off when it’s clear that it’s part of the Metal Gear mythos, demonstrated by your repeated declaration of where in it is set in the Metal Gear timeline.

Furthermore, and this is surrounded by multiple other related problems, simply the fact that Raiden’s design is the same as when the game was set before Metal Gear Solid 4 is hugely indicative of the meaninglessness behind the game’s location in the timeline. It also directly relates back to the very loaded reasons for the project’s existence - the attempt to ensure that misguided and unrelated work is recycled efficiently.

It pains me to say this, as I do not take the respect that I have for your studio lightly.

Just finished watching the Smithsonian Art Museum interview, really interesting and insightful discussion!

Also thought Sean did a great job with the translation! :)

Hello KP Report Crew

The photos from the fox engine looks really cool. Congrats on getting in the smithsonian, you guys deserve it.

I do have a question, are you gonna release an update to fix the bugs in the HD Collection?

19 / Mr. T / 2012年03月22日 22:11

I second Mr. Echo's comment.
I would appreciate some highlights from the Play Arts Kai team interview from Hideraji JP. Did they announce future plans outside of Meryl, MGR Raiden & Solidus?
