Much Like The Might Phoenix, Kojima Productions Rises From The Ashes

It’s been a bit of a slog but finally Hideo Kojima, creator of the video game series Metal Gear, has finally been released from his contract with the now infamous video game publisher/developer juggernaut Konami. So what happens now that Kojima has finally made his departure from Konami and his former studio, Kojima Productions, has been disbanded? Well, the answer to that is quite simple; he starts fresh…with the creation of the new Kojima Productions. While Konami has kept the rights to Kojima’s critically acclaimed Metal Gear series, his own name stays with him, and that is why he has titled his new studio after his old, proving that certain special things in life cannot truly be killed. Kojima, as expected from many of those rooted deep in the video game industry, has taken with him a whole team of former Kojima Productions workers who will now accompany him as he, once again, makes a name for himself, this time separate to that of Konami. With the help of Sony Computer Entertainment, who have recently revealed that …

Persona 5 Just Announced For The PlayStation 4 + Teaser Trailer

Sugoi! Sony Computer Entertainment today held a small but exciting press conference wherein which they revealed a whole bunch of information regarding their upcoming games, one of which happens to be the highly-anticipated ‘Persona 5’ which, up until today, had only been announced through a picture featuring five chairs and the video game’s title. Today we were given more than that: Not only was a teaser trailer for the upcoming game released but it was made known to the public that ‘Persona 5’ would not only be coming to the PlayStation 3…but also the PlayStation 4. My excitement is immeasurable seeing as I was one of the foolish people to get rid of my PlayStation 3 so that I could make room in my life for the PlayStation 4. I now regret that decision a little less. The game is still set at a vague 2015 release but the Tokyo Game Show is only around the corner and my hope is that we’ll see more of it there. It’s time to break free! -30-

Freedom Wars – Update Details Released

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when certain news regarding Japanese gamers finding ‘Freedom Wars’ too hard was floating around the web? Do you remember when video game producer Junichi Yoshizawa came out and said that the development team were currently working on an update to fix the difficulty problem? You do?! Well it doesn’t actually matter because this update has absolutely nothing to do with the aforementioned bug. Japan’s ‘Famitsu’ magazine recently posted an information page up on their online publication which both announces and details a massive update for the game. Now, as mentioned, this update does nothing about the insane difficulty level but it does add a couple extra features that will surely boost overall gameplay value for the Sony Computer Entertainment title. The new update will add the ‘Internet Co-Op Play’ feature which will allow players to do exactly that; play matches over the internet with anyone around the world rather than just through ad-hoc.
