Yesterday was the launch Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. To celebrate the launch GameUK invited Kojima for a midnight event of the Game.
The 1st 200 people who’ll get there will receive the game from Kojima and character designer Shinkawa. I came in the morning. Saw a bunch of MGS nerds scattered around Westfield shopping centre. Fortunately they hand out queue numbers.
No one wants to stand from 10am til midnight. I grabbed my numbered . Then, came back at 10pm. They stood us outside which was like -2 yup freezing .
At the end Kojima & Shinkawa arrived. It was awesome, we talked MGS a lot. I’m really glad he told us he won’t be rebooting the MGS. Some great things should be left alone. I’ve met some great guys there. Taking metal gear, cyborgs and snakes.
The let down was he didn’t sign any game, there were, obviously, over 200 geeks here. It would take him til morning to sign. Especially, some guys brought their own MGS games to be signed.
I can’t complain after taking a picture with Mr.Metal Gear
