A lot of people need to remove this from their heads.

Nah, it covers up a bald spot. Gonna keep it on, thanks.

I just thought to myself. There will be episodes of this consisting entirely of cutscenes! O_o

My personal list looks like this ...

1. Snake Eater
2. Peace Walker
3. MGS1
4. MGS4
5. MGS2

Needless to say I am very excited about another entry in the "Big Boss"-saga, and if GZ is any indication (which it probably is) how TPP will end up "feeling", I am
confident it could top at least Peace Walker.

Radiata Stories - a pretty, neat little JRPG with recruiting mechanics akin to the Suikoden series, with many memorable, genuinely likable characters

Steambot Chronicles - another rather light-hearted JRPG in which you control a "Trotmobile" (basically a mecha) for the most part; there's also a rhythm game aspect to it as the main character is traveling the world with his band

I liked both of those a whole lot back in the day.

Maybe someone's already said this, but who the fuck cares about del Toro? Whether or not a movie he's involved in is good is a crap shoot. Pan's Labyrinth? Great. Orphanage? Kinda shit. Hellboy? OK. Mama? Pretty garbage. Don't be Afraid of the Dark?!?!? It's not like the guy *can't* make a good film, he clearly has the chops, but he's often involved in pretty lacklustre affairs. And, honestly, video games are just a completely different medium.

And let's not forget that people have kind of stopped giving a shit about Silent Hill. Shattered Memories was a legitimately great game, and it sold less than half a million copies (and only broke even because of the PS2 port), on a system, the Wii, that had a *huge* install base. Given that, what's the market these days for a great Silent Hill game?

Del Toro might not always produce greatness, but he sure as hell is at the top of his game whenever creature design is concerned. THAT's where I hope his expertise will come to fruition on this the most.
And about the series in particular: Yes, you are spot on about it having drifted kind of into obscurity since it's glory days. But that's precisely why it is such a good thing that big names like Kojima, Del Toro and even Reedus are now involved with its "reboot" or whatever this will end up being. A huge chance for the franchise to be revitalized.

I'm pretty sure Kojima himself won't end up being involved in this game's writing or art direction at all. It'll be his studio's engine and a bunch of his employees working on the project. No MGS-silliness. I'm willing to bet on that.

Since this is coming out within the next six months it looks like I'll be getting a PS4 sooner than anticipated.

Me too!
