STJKMOTS is still the worst though... but then again, not really the OFFICIAL title...

What's MGS:PW?
MGS: Rising (I guess MGS5? It's the new game starring Raiden) is going to be multiplatform for the 360, PS3, and PC. It is being developed by Kojima Productions but it will not be done by Kojima, personally.

MGS: PW (Peacewalker) is Kojima Productions PSP game that is a sequel to MGS3: Snake Eater. It will be directed and produced personally by Kojima, and is exclusive to the PSP. It will feature Jack (Big Boss) and his actions during the 1970's.

AFAIK, there are no plans to release MGS4 on anything but the PS3, so I think that's going to remain a PS3 exclusive.

Lenny - here is a link to the teaser for MGS5 (multiplatform).

I'm not sure its been confirmed as multiplatform either way, last I heard there was confusion but no definite statement.

very,very, close but I was thinking about one the second time as well.

Also, whats so weird about NOT telling an omlet something?
Sure it would be more weird TO tell an omlet something :P

Sin and Punishment 2 (wii) - http://wii.ign.com/articles/989/989923p1.html

Never played the first, but I know (like Golden Sun) this was a much wanted sequal by many. Dont know much about it, but it looks rather Starfoxy gameplay only with people flying about blasting stuff.

It's been confirmed multiplatform by, of all people, Microsoft.

I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually get the entire series ported to 360 ala the Essentials collection.

Also, Famitsu confirmed that a.) Rising is multiplatform and b.) Kojima is not directly involved with Rising, only an overseer.

So you're probably right with regards to Rising being more of a spin-off, especially since MGS4 essentially brings Sold Snake's story arc to a conclusion, making it rather difficult for anything but a prequel (meh).

From his comments to Famitsu:

Quote:

While I didn't care for Raiden in MGS2, I loved the role they gave him in MGS4, and I think if done properly, could make for a nice new "Metal Gear" series (Metal Gear Raiden?). As long as 'Lightning Bolt Action' doesn't mean Metal Gear becomes a Devil May Cry clone with Raiden and his sword instead of a stealth sneaking game, I'll be anxiously anticipating it.

Darkflame - I was thinking of Zelda TP, which undoubtedly no good critic have played through.

I dont see any evidence of that.
As I said, I played over it, got all the hearts, played all the minigames (and the minigames within minigames), and didnt see a single bug, difficulity spike, or anything that would remotely indictate not enough playtesting.
In fact, given the shear amount of different things you can do, Id probably had the most playtesting of any Nintendo game thus far.

Alan Wake (360) - News of this game went dead for ages, but its looking great now.
http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/990/990475p1.html

If I get an Xbox sometime, this would be one of the first games I grab.
Looks like a great horror/adventure thingy.

And what makes you think I don't If you don't hear anything, its because on most occassions he takes months to respond. That or by some grand miracle, he didn't get my last two emails.

Anyway, I received the following email on Mon, Oct 13, 2008 at 8:34 AM

Hi Fred,

xxx

On to the questions, this time they are going from the MBN. Feel free to choose the one's you'd like to answer. Personally, I have only one question, that is:-
  • You said the time was ripe for LBA3 during my visit to lyon, and you hinted that the start of production would be after your completion of one large project before it first. Does that still hold true today? If you were to guess, when would LBA3 see the light of day?

From Darkflame:-
  • Whats your involvement, if any, with Ubisoft at the moment?
  • Are you still working on/or consulting on any other DS Games?
  • Are you still in touch with other members of the original Adeline team?
  • What do you think are the main advantages/disadvantages to the games industry now, compared with when they first made Alone in the Dark?
From Link
  • Do you still visit the MBN like he used to ?
  • What improvement would you focus on if you were to make LBA3 ?
  • If you were given unlimited money and time and could work with anybody you wanted to, what kind of project would he make ?
From Shawks
  • - How far along is the project you are currently working on/When do think they will announce the game and for what platform(s)?
  • - What is your favourite game so far this gen, including handhelds.
From Dino-Fly
  • -Could you clarify the graphical style you would like for LBA3?

Best of luck with your projects, I look forward to playing another game developed by yourself!

Kind Regards
Ahmad
So to make a long story short, I do email him, and his response timeliness is quite terrible, but I learnt to live with it! I also emailed him again, still no response.

Yes, but the Xbox game is what the preview is from.
I also havnt seen of the PC version in awhile.
My guess is it might come a little later.

Does anybody know what's happening to IGN? I'd like to view some of their videos, but whenever I click a video link, I get redirected to http://uk.wrapper.ign.com/, a page that doesn't even exist. Like what is going on?
Go here, click on the video and see what happens.

That's working for me. The only issue I've had is some of IGN's E3 coverage required Move movie player, which annoyed me.

Nope, that link doesn't work for me. I get the black background, the top bar with "IGN Entertainment" on it, but then the screen goes white and Firefox gives me a message that "uk.wrapper.ign.com" couldn't be found.

No idea, it's working for me...all IGN videos for that matter, I just watched a preview of Arkham Asylum as well.

When I visit IGN from Germany, I always get redirected to the "uk." part of their site, no matter what link I click. Now what, should I use a proxy just to get their site working? This sucks.
