I think it is a very fun game, but a little on the easier side compared to the first game. I also don't hate Loki, I think him and Bayonetta have some fun chemistry together. I just imagine Bayonetta is running around with Bakura from Yu-Gi-Oh. He's even got Yugi's puzzle as a necklace.

I remember there was a joke about Legend of Zelda should take place in the future where Link rode on a Motorcycle that had the license plate 3P0NA. I'm glad Nintendo finally listened.

I'm not a huge fan of Hatsune Miku herself, but I think the technology is really cool and I hope they continue to advance it to make it more natural. It's really interesting to see what they can do. This is the first step to a real life Jem & The Holograms.

I think it's ironic that people question the integrity of Giantbomb staff and their relationship with developers when the whole reason this site exists is because Jeff Gerstmann was fired from Gamespot for giving an unbiased review on Kayne & Lynch.

I don't think anyone here questions the integrity of Giant Bomb. I think when ti comes to this sort of corruption bigger sites like Polygon and Kotaku are much more the target.

Harassment is a bad thing and people shouldn't have to go through any of it. But

And then you go on to wonder why people don't take your point of view seriously. It's not difficult to understand.

Is that where you stopped reading, or are you purposely taking what I'm saying out of context?

I'm saying when you start a post in that way, you shouldn't be surprised when people are dismissive of whatever you have to say after that. I didn't stop reading, no. But to be honest it's hard to take anything after that "but" seriously, especially if it's about video games.

Even if the conspiracy theories were true and the entirety of the gaming press was one big conspiracy, it wouldn't be as important a story as people receiving death threats and being driven from their homes. If you insist on saying "harassment is bad, but this video game problem is more important," then look, I'm just not going to take your argument seriously, full stop.

I dunno man. If we lived in a world where there's undeniable fact that all conspiracy theories over this were true, I would think that deeply rooted corruption of a multi-billion dollar industry is a bigger deal than the life of an individual person.

I wonder if the world would be a better place if everyone subscribed to Dan Ryckert's be ignorant and happy about everything lifestyle.

The only thing I find frustrating about the whole thing is how futile the argument is on both sides. At the end of the day nothing will really change after all this. Large companies will continue to make games with guns explosions and scantly clad women. The people who don't like that sort of thing will continue to try to make whatever artsy stuff they want. Developers and media people will continue to be friends with each other and the internet will continue to complain about whatever random shit comes out. There will be no change, no government intervention or mainstream outcry. It's all pointless shit tossing on both sides that by the end of the year we'll all be back to square one. Because it's the internet.

...government intervention?

I just mean more when these sorts of things happen there is a much larger conversation about rethinking how the internet works seems to come up. How there needs to be more ownership on people's actions, arguments that anonymity across the internet should be taken away or lessened. Stuff like that. I don't see how that sort of thing is possible without some higher up dealings because every time it's tried otherwise it seems like it's failed pretty hard.

If you think Kojima is a bad thing for this game, think of all the weird shit that has happened in the Metal Gear franchise before.

All the fourth wall breaking stuff Psycho Mantis did. Hell, Psycho Mantis himself could have been a Silent Hill character.

The end of MGS2 when everyone on the codec went crazy and did all that creepy meta stuff

The Sorrow and how you had to wade through everyone you killed in the game

All the sexual violence allegories within the Beauty & The Beast squad which made them twice as creepy, they might as well have been mannequins from Silent Hill 2.

As far as I'm concerned Kojima is perfect.

I've yet to be disappointed with a Metal Gear Solid game and the first Lords of Shadow was amazing. I love this news. It's two of my favorite directions working on one of my favorite video game franchises. I can't wait to see more of it.

This makes The Phantom Pain make a lot more sense in a way what with it having all those flying fire whales, flaming horses, and asylum ghosts.
