Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Summary
The last Kojima-run iteration of the legendary stealth action game had more than it's share of outrage and controversy. Much of the issue comes from the fact that people were upset about a particular character that becomes unavailable after a certain point, but it seems Konami is turning on a dime on that decision and allowing a workaround in the newest patch.
Yesterday, George Broussard hadthat he had gotten word from anonymous sources that Konami had closed down Kojami Productions LA, the developers of Metal Gear Online.
Konami has issued a statement that has confirmed the rumor.
If the current rumor is true, it seems that Konami is continuing to remove Meta Gear Solid franchise creator Hideo Kojima's name from the publisher, as Metal Gear Online studio Kojima Productions LA is reportedly being shuttered, The alleged downsizing will result in 25-30 jobs being lost.
Metal Gear Solid V is one of the most popular games on the PC market right now, but none of it may have happened had John Carpenter told his production company CanalPlus not to sue Hideo Kojima over copyright infringment with Escape From New York.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is already an almost insanely detailed game. For example, I discovered just recently that if you hide in a toilet and play a cassette tape full of… toilet sounds, guards will run off in disgust, rather than dragging you out and filling you full of AK-47 rounds. You can use a water pistol to hold people up. You can kidnap gerbils. Who else but Hideo Kojima would put this amount of pointless, beautiful detail into a game?
