Currently on Chapter 2 in DS. Honestly itís already very repetitive. The story is disjointed so far. Unique mechanics but do we really need it? Itís not like itís breaking grounds in the gaming world.

Kojima, Kojima. You creative man. Sometimes abit too ambitious for your own good.
Maybe having a big game developer like Konami was good also. At least such MNCs prob have spent huge amount of time on focus groups and defined expectations.. at the very least to balance creativity and mass acceptance.

Now Kojima has free rein. Which unfortunately not every fan will stick to his/her expectations.

the game really is deliver items from a to b?
Yeah, that’s the gist of it so far. There is a reason for doing that ah but still it’s very repetitive. It’s about reconnecting the ‘strands”, subtle message about the human aspects, typical mindeffing sequences that I don’t give a toss.

If you expect it to be a typical open world game, do what you want kind of thing, this game failed to deliver big time for me so far. Giving myself another day to get hooked, if not I’m returning it.

konami more interested in mobile games as they require less money to make and still able to make money compared to big titles. this is why they kicked kojima out.

If this game doesn’t have the Kojima Productions brand, I doubt the media will rave about it. Doesn’t mean by having that brand makes it immune to criticism.

I’m ranting a little. But Kojima’s brilliance ended with Guns of the Patriot.

I don't think the issue is Konami wanting to shift to mobile games. Looking at it from a company perspective, Kojima is just not a good game director/producer (aka project manager). He may be a creative person but he sucks big time as project manager. His projects (like MGS5) took years. Konami pumped tons of money into it for years, zero return. Companies work on an annual budget cycle, every year it's deficit going into the project, hitting the company's bottomline. So much so that in the interim they had to grab some parts that were already made, wrap it up as a full game (Ground Zero, which is nothing more than a demo or prequel) and sell that to get back some cash first.

And meanwhile, Kojima likes to be a glory hog, grabbing media attention all the time, putting the focus on himself rather than the company. Think about it, what is the most profitable product from Konami? Probably PES. They sell it every year, smaller incremental investment annually, steady revenue stream, dependable profit source. Pop quiz, who's the producer/director of the PES games? Anyone knows? Probably not (for that matter, probably more people know the name Kojima than the name of Konami's CEO). That's the point, whoever makes the most profitable games for the company doesn't hog the spotlight. He just dutifully, silently makes money for the company year after year. Compare that to Kojima, whose project goes totally out of hand, takes longer and longer (just because Kojima wants open world in MGS5), sinking more and more company money into the bottomless pit. And some projects are just fiasco (like the fruit ninja game), which Kojima has to make so he at least had some deliverables for the company.

If you are Konami, how much do you like Kojima? You'd probably give him a deadline to wrap up MGS5 whichever way, and kick him out.

That loh.

Buy so many games that I love, but end up no time to play, haiz. So as much as it pains me to wait, makes more sense to buy later when it is discounted, even so for my beloved fan servicey DOA series . I also stopped buying physical and just buy digital versions
