Entwined Review

It seems that every video game released in the modern age tries to shoe-horn in a compelling narrative to hook gamers. Entwined will have none of that, though, instead relying on abstract inspiration and one’s personal interpretation for its “storytelling.” The result is an experience one can get lost in, if not because of its attempted art form, then the soothing yet...

Kojima MGS4 on 360 'Probably Not Possible,' Wishes People Would Stop Asking

Kojima MGS4 on 360 'Probably Not Possible,' Wishes People Would Stop Asking

Poor Kojima. His success with Metal Gear Solid 4 has been a mixed blessing; wildly successful, but as a result, he hears questions all the time about a possible Xbox 360 port, rather than people looking at the game itself (instead of the hardware) or asking about future projects."I've been doing a lot of interviews and stage shows, and half the questions are like 'Will MGS4 be coming out on 360 or other formats?', and in the near future I hope they'll ask me about Metal Gear, about us, about our future projects, and will stop caring about the hardware," Kojima told Eurogamer in an interview published today. Pressed on MGS4's exclusivity and the possibility of an Xbox 360 port, Kojima reiterated that the PS3 had been chosen because he believed that the series' success had been entwined with PlayStation's, and admitted that "because MGS4 was optimised for the PS3 it is probably not possible". "But, you know, what kind of disturbs me sometimes, because a lot of people ask me about this PS3/360 question, is that it's not about the hardware - I want people to look at the game itself. Sometimes I even feel like it should be on a PC so that people don't ask me about hardware and platforms," he said. Asked whether he would develop multiplatform games in future, Kojima said: "If we're talking about the future - not MGS4, but my future titles, if we're referring to that - if the hardware technology rises then obviously, you know, it won't be based on the hardware anymore. Probably I will first create the software and then, um, it's a strange word to say, but port to other hardware if that technological ability rises in all areas." -- EurogamerHmm, I wonder what kind of PC specs would be needed to run Metal Gear Solid 4? In any case, Eurogamer goes on to note that Kojima's multiplatform idea is already being implemented by Capcom for Resident Evil 5, so that may just be the way to go. Read More
