Meeting Kojima

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

Orc’s Nest is one of those stores dedicated for boardgames and accessories.

The customer service is amazing.

Very helpful guys.
when I entered the placed I had 3 games on my mind:

-Power Grid, and I found it there.

-King of Tokyo,

Unfortunately they didn’t have it in stock. So, they ordered me one.
Later, I’ve found it in Forbidden Planet.

so I went back to Orc’s Nest to cancel my order and apologize.

Arrietty: Review / Lexi Cinema

I went today to see Arietty (Kari-gurashi no Arietti) — based on The Borrowers by Mary Norton– the latest movie from Studio Ghibli. I was slightly disappointed by this movie. The story is interesting but the plot isn’t, at all. It starts very cold, then when it gets interesting, it goes back to cold. Ghibli is famous for it’s simple facial expressions and detailed environment. it’s all here, What I most like other than the animation; is the soundtrack. Unfortunately, There’s nothing catchy about this movie, only the huge name of Ghibli behind it.

+great animation
+great soundtrack

-boring plot
-cheesy ending
-boring characters

6.7/10
