Say what you will about Polygon, but I would accept Justin McElroy (and if we had take his brother as part of the deal, then yeah, him too) in a fucking heartbeat here at Giantbomb. We'd finally have our very own Sherlock Holmes editorial expert! We've been needing one of those ever since Justin told his first Sherlock Holmes game story.
And I like Arthur. I get why people don't, but I still like him.
Dang that looks like a pretty rushed illustration. I'm really hopeful they're more careful with this one, white saviour/colonialist attitudes and all. That said, this image doesn't bode too well.
That illustration seems like it's purposely leaning into that. It seems so blatant to me, that I think they're aware. They'd have to be after Far Cry 3, right? So, hopefully it'll be something that gets touched on thematically in 4.
Chelsea Handler could be interesting. And, perhaps, a risky move.
It's a major channel network, I think they'll side on making a very safe bet. Just doesn't seem like these things are hardwired for making maverick moves. But, no doubt it'd be interesting to see Handler get the gig.
I think the sexist and misogynistic stuff (not talking about Ground Zeroes) has always seemed to me, to be a cultural difference. Hideo Kojima is a 50-year old Japanese man. I think many people forget that. Aside form there being an age gap, there's a cultural gap. We already know that women are still not treated as they are here in the U.S. as they are in other forms of Japanese entertainment (ie: Manga, anime, videogames, etc.).
Maybe it's a testament to how well Kojima has been able to maintain this sense of modernism with Metal Gear. But, I feel it's important to remember the cultural and age gap with get with him. Same goes for some of the comedy scenes in MGS, too.
