PlayStation VR, Romance, & Giant Airships: TGS 2015 Podcast 1 of 2 by Best Video Game Podcast on Mixcloud

The Tokyo Game Show was huge and exhausting. In this podcast, we talk about the most unique stuff at the show, beginning with PlayStation VR and then moving to some patently Japanese stuff, like a kabe-don experience and a game in which you hunt old men to give them girly makeovers. And then the mobile game that ended up with the show’s most impressive booth.

Metal Gear Solid V Will Not Be Kojima’s Last

Edit: Well, that kinda got weird.

Original post:

Hideo Kojima is at it again. Don’t believe the hype.

Recently, Kojima stated that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would be the final Metal Gear Solid title. Or maybe he said it was his last one as a director. Something.

He does this all the time. I think this has happened since, like, Metal Gear Solid 2? He always says the current game is the last one, or at the very least that it’s his last one. The statement means nothing, at this point.
