Hey bro, Kojima still "crazy"

According to resident Kojima fanboy Jose Santos, Hideo Kojima is, "still crazy."

Recently Jose was seen on this brand new Triumph Bonneville. "You know the kind that Snake uses in Metal Gear 4."

We asked Jose what he thought of Kojima lack of ability to come up with characters and story line.

"Listen I am from a poor village in Spain. My father taught me to fish and my sisters taught me how to dress. We used to go to the movies in a cart. These days I can't be bothers with video games I need new tires for my motorcycles so I can look more like Steve Mac Queen. He was a real man. Oh Kojima? He is still crazy."

Son of God to appear with Kojima on Konami panel at noon today!

I roll my eyes now at even the mention of Hideo Kojimas name now. I never thought I would say that but seriously who the fuck cares?

So far...

MGS: Rising Raiden based game for Xbox 360

MGS: Peace Walker a Big Boss based game for the PSP

Can Kojima make games that are not in the MGS universe?

We hate organized religion! Assassins Creed 2

I never finished the first one, however I plan to now.

So there are some new things for the Xbox Experience

I can't afford air travel, but in reality you just want the skinny.

Today from the E3 stage in Los Angeles, Microsoft announced plans to dramatically improve their HD video offering through a new technology that enables instant on 1080p streaming with 5.1 audio with Zune video on Xbox 360.

This implementation is as close to a "disc in the drive" experience as possible over the Internet. At a high-level, here is how it works:

* Video startup is nearly instantaneous because of the back-end proprietary Microsoft technology developed by Zune that seamlessly transitions between many different bitrates and resolutions of video.
* Video playback will start at a low bitrate for fast download time and then ramp up to a higher bitrate and quality, up to 1080p with 5.1 audio.
* Features such as smooth fast forward and rewind that users have only seen before with local physical media.

It doesn't stop there. Other news coming out of E3 for Xbox LIVE Video Marketplace:

* Social: We unveiled Movie Party, a feature where you can go to the movies with your friends whether you are sitting on the same couch or in living rooms across the country. Starting this year, you can share a virtual theater, see your Avatars (a virtual you) on the screen – all while you listen to each other laugh and cry together at the movie through voice chat on Xbox LIVE.
* New Regional Partners: Now, for the first time Xbox LIVE members in the UK and Ireland can watch live or on-demand TV with BSkyB on Xbox. Never miss a moment of your favorite live TV shows, sports, movies and family-friendly entertainment – even share your favorites with up to seven friends in an Xbox LIVE Party.
* Global Expansion: The 1080p streaming HD Zune video experience on Xbox LIVE marketplace is expanding to 10 new regions this year, making movies and TV shows available in 18 total countries including US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Australia, and New Zealand.

Engadget can afford to go to E3

Team Ninja making a Metroid game.

Team Ninja is making a game for the Wii.

I wonder if there will be any fan service shower scenes.

Ok I will eat my hat now

This looks awesome!

Daylight fights? Check.
Giant redneck tank in overalls? Check.
Chainsaw? Check?

Chances of not having unlimted ammo for handguns?

Best game title ever

Coming this fall. Enough said. Has anyone finished The Lost and Damned yet?

I will believe it when I see it...

I highly doubt this game will be out on November 17th of this year.

I have heard real melee weapons, chainsaws and axes. I also heard New Orleans.

Once again I will bet a dollar that this game will not be out this year.


I believe in Jack Black

I believe in Jack Black and I believe in Tim Schaffer.

I hold these truths to be self evident. Rock and roll and heavy metal are an important force and should not be tampered with.

Here is a nice clip from the upcoming Brutal Legend.
