Correct.

I'm just excited to see him finally go out and make original content after being all but forced to turn out sequels for years (even if they were great!). It's also nice he is going to be making console games and hasn't chosen the iOS route.

I'm playing MGS V right now, and I love it.  It combines the right level of open world and mission driven world.

Makes me really miss playing as Raiden though.  Although you have to S rank the shit out of MSGV to get him.

I'm a huge Kojima fan. That said, Id be afraid to employ him because he's a loose cannon. I read one article that said when he joined Konami in the 80's he was one of the few people in his department who did not code. This set him apart and he was bullied. On top of this he always felt like his dream job was never in reach, which was to be a film maker. He said the Japanese economy was to blame for this. What this made was a very angsty adult who is apparently kind of an intimidating asshole to those who he works with. His best friend is the artist who worked under him since MGS1. As I remember, even though they were friends, they almost got into a fist fight over what Snake's age should be in MGS1.

He had some GBA game he made that no one has played and it had a light sensor on it that detected sunlight. You needed to play the game in sunlight for some sort of benefit and he took measures to prevent this benefit from being achievable from many indoor lighting systems. He also apparently wanted to make a game where if you died once, the game was bricked and you had to buy a new one and got into a lot of heated arguments where people told him it was a bad idea.

I think Kojima is bit like George Lucas in the sense that there is genius and talent there, but unless he is under control and under outside influence, he will just make weird shit no one understands or wants.

LOL.

Wasn't there a story of a guy who lives in Japan who has left his video game system on for over 15 years because the battery that powers the save data died and he would lose all his saves if it shut off?

So I logged into the MGS V servers for the first time last night.  It really fucking pisses me off.  I logged into PSN to download an "app" and so it was the first time MGS even tried to connect, and then it did automatically.  Well, that was fine but apparently the servers were set to undergo maintenance, and I lost like 20,000 of each of my resources.  Everything I searched online said that shouldn't happen because online and offline resources are different, but that appears to not be the case.

My brother played a game like this. I think it was some kind of adventure/RPG game where your character drew power from the sun and you needed to be in sunlight to trigger some events or something as well.

Not so much about video games it self, but the high end desktop sets that people use.

I'm confused...is this supposed to be like, a goal to strive for?

post #4601 of 5024

Idk, I loled at that one tho.

I saw the one with the TV in the desk-surface on reddit the other day.

it looks pretty sweet with the LEDs turned off, but god what an ugly mess when they are turned on. Perfect example of DIYers taking it too far.

I can't imagine going "I couldn't afford a decent desk six moths ago, so I'm going to build a custom desk with three monitors and a tv build in."  Good for him, and I hope he enjoys it, but I just can't relate to the thought process.

Even though they are very ugly, sitting in a la-z-boy for an extended time is nice. If I spent a lot of time in a desk setup it would be to make my desk la-z-boy friendly.

Kind of reminds me of a friend of mine retro game room. He's a heavy game and has plenty of money to spend on the hobby so he set up a spare room to just play old stuff. He keeps a CRT in it on purpose even when he could easily switch it out for a flatscreen.
