Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Kojima Believes He's "Misinterpreted", Doesn't Want To Be Known As "The Metal Gear Guy"

Posted on Thursday, November 29 @ 10:04:50 PST by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that Hideo Kojima has done little more than create newMetal Gear Solidgames since the release ofZone of the Enders 2, he does not want to belabeledas "theMetal Gear guy."

In an interview withEGM, Kojima told the outlet that he's "often misinterpreted,” going on to add that he's always wanted "to work on original properties, but Metal Gear offers plenty of benefits." Kojima does, however, plan to incorporate new IP concepts into his "nextMetal Gear" title... whatever that means.

He elaborated on why it is so difficult to move on from the franchise, citing his brand-new engine as one example. "The Fox Engine, for example, took a lot of time and money [to create]; we were only able to develop it because it was intended for the next Metal Gear. In the next game, I’m introducing concepts intended for entirely new intellectual properties using the Metal Gear brand," he explained.

“I’ll admit that I hope my future endeavours are thought of as ‘works by Hideo Kojima’ rather than ‘from the creator of Metal Gear'," Kojima added."I haven’t really shown the world what else I might be capable of yet. This may sound pretentious, but I don’t like being thought of as ‘the Metal Gear guy.’ There’s a lot more I can do.”

Would you like to see Kojima pursue other ideas, or is moreMetal Gear worth the sacrifice? Let us know in the comments below.
