Not in street clothes, mother*bleep*er. It's bras, cargo pants, or bust.

This is exciting news nonetheless. I don't agree with selling out on the design end to stimulate some potential cosplay awareness, but Kojima's pretty much a genius when it comes to the industry, so I'll continue to support his work. I'll ogle the bitches too, but if I ever see a pair of Eva panties at Victoria's Secret I will *bleep*ing mail a busted Liquid Snake bust to the old man, among other things.

They do. It's called YUGIOH

And bitches make me so sick lately. Physically ill. Knowing I have to look at more stupid, overly-sexual shit in a more serious tone is frustrating. I like in smaller doses, but that's real world shit and I don't play games to experience that. Give me a gun, silencer, maybe some witty quips now and then, and let me take my frustrations out on some *bleep*ing commies. I don't want a ten minute cutscene where all I see are some provocative shots of some fake bitch and her fake, perfect, tits, while she explains how some shits about to go down.

You do realize that this is the metal gear series your talking about? If you don't want fanservice in your action games I suggest splinter cell or something.

Yeah, yeah I do. I've been playing them since the first and I can say with full confidence that direction has shifted dramatically since Sons of Liberty. I get that it's always been there, but now they're throwing it everybody's face and not even trying to jazz it up. A lot of us who grew with this series are well into our twenties now. Sure there's new players always discovering the games, maybe they're drawn to the sexual concepts, maybe not, everybody's preferences are at least a little different, but I find it hard to believe that the long-time fans who still buy their merch, are happy with the direction character development has been heading.

Snake's aged wonderfully, by the way. I like that he was never this invincible hero, 'cause even that's too unrealistic for this series, but why are all of the women *bleep*ing 10's. They would never become soldiers, it's not even playing into a fantasy at this point. Tits don't get firmer over the years, or they shouldn't.

Oh and *bleep* your Splinter Cell comment. Everything since Chaos Theory has been a hack job.

What? MGS has always had ridiculous pandering, Quiet is absolutely tame in comparison to this



or this



or the one and only



and those are just the guys.

And it's gotten so much worse since Snake Eater. There isn't even a (MALE GENITALIA, 'CAUSE the actual word IS TOO EXPLICIT) on any of those models. Amorphous, semi-muscular male models don't even register as sexual in my mind. The male nudity is half-assed, by comparison (that bulge in the Peace Walker screen, ugh). I'm not trying to convince you of anything, I just hate this baggage.

His comments on Quiet kind of tipped me in the other direction, but I'm not tossing his work to the curb or anything. I still have faith in the man.

Ichakasi even if you don't find the male body to be sexual, there are people that do and are aroused by such imagery. Just because YOU don't think it's sexual doesn't mean that it isn't.

On a note related to the article, I'm hyped that there's a new dev studio and am hoping that they might help work on ZoE 3 at some point

That's my point. It's arousal for sake of getting aroused, not to compliment the story, gameplay, etc. And yes, I get that the whole point is to get a little hot, but when a game becomes more about ogling the models than tying up loose ends I get annoyed. I'm not saying that's the case with MGSV, but I do feel the series is headed down that road. That's all.

So Konomi is outsourcing their games to internal western studios?

Keep the Japanese games Japanese, and keep the Western games Western. You don't see Capcom making God of War or Tecmo making Halo.

Ugh more Western studios thinking they can handle Japanese games.

Keep the Japanese games Japanese, and keep the Western games Western. You don't see Tecmo making Halo, or Bethesda making Mega Man.

My question is: will the game play quality be better?
