Coney! I wondered if posting about Metal Gear could somehow summon you here. It's not like anyone but you and me is going to give a shit.
No, but I just assumed it would be awesome. That's not a part I'm worried about. And, although I think The Phantom Pain is an awful name (even if it's only the first chapter), that's not really what's bothering me either.

I am liking this growing trend of putting movie stars in video games though. I mean, we've had some celebrity voices in games for years now, but it's becoming more common and, significantly, the characters they voice are often physically modelled on them now. I just love how games are getting treated more and more seriously as both business and art. I can't wait to see what GTA 5 is going to deliver. Apparently Hideo Kojima, upon seeing gameplay from GTA 5, was so impressed he was concerned MGS 5 was not good enough. That's fucking praise right there.
