Cinelinx's Victor Medina speaks with David Hayter about his new film Wolves and his prolific career!
Looks like Sony is at long last getting serious about making the long-gestating Metal Gear Solid movie adaptation. We know they were working on it, with Avi Arad handling the producing duties, but aside from that information (given a while ago) there's not been much of an update. Now however, things are getting serious, as Sony is currently in talks with Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) to helm the film.
Thinking about it, how does one guy envision such great games such as Metal Gear or Zone of the Enders, while at the same time carrying an entire company on his shoulders? Hideo Kojima, owner of Kojima Productions, has been doing just that for Konami for decades now. The creator of one of the most iconic franchises in gaming has even stepped up to have a big role in the publisher side of things. He helps not only operate Kojima Productions, but Konami itself. Seems logical, through one of your leading men into bigger shoes. Yet how does he do it?
We ask the question as this week we highlighted another great PlayStation Exclusive, Metal Gear Solid. This is part of a month long series that will highlight the greatest PlayStation Exclusives! Be sure to check them out!
In 1998, Hideo Kojima released what would go on to become one of the most iconic franchises in video game history. Yes it is true that Metal Gear had a few games released before Metal Gear Solid, but the first Solid game is what became something great. From that day we have seen several variations of MGS on all kinds of consoles that have been truly groundbreaking in several ways. While MGS may not be entirely exclusive, it once was, and because of that…. it is one of Sony’s greatest PlayStation Exclusives.
It’s a brand new month, which means the team here at Cinelinx is hard at work for new article themes. This month our Movielinx counterpart articles are highlighting the best film performances of all time, so we thought we'd take a similar tact by putting the spotlight on some of the best story moments in gaming: cutscenes. In honor of our NES theme on our forums and Facebook page, we are kicking things off with a look at a pair of great cutscenes from our gaming past and present!
Last night, Hideo Kojima, the creator of the beloved Metal Gear Solid franchise, was on hand during Sony's big launch event for the PlayStation 4, and there he revealed a brand new bonus mission exclusively available to the Sony platform. Fans of the series should be plenty happy about that, but today they've also revealed 12 minutes of gameplay footage from the 'prologue', Ground Zeroes, for your enjoyment!
The original Metal Gear Solid for the Playstation 1 remains one of my favorite games of all time, and an excellent example of storytelling, even in a limited era. Yet despite already having received a remake in the form of the GameCube's Twin Snakes, the classic game hasn't made it's way into the HD era, even though all the others have! Now that may change, as the series creator, Hideo Kojima, has made mention that he's currently looking for a studio to remake the game once again.
[Updated with Hi-Res Official Stills] While most gamers have known (or assumed) that The Phantom Pain, which was debuted at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, was Metal Gear Solid related, Hideo Kojima has set the record straight at GDC 2013. Come inside to check out the details on Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and watch the gorgeous trailer that came with it.
