Uwe Boll and Anderson have both got the right idea. Since there are so many remakes of television series and movies coming out they are the only two directors which have taken a game franchise and attempted to convert it to movie form. Not including those currently in production like Max Payne and BioShock.
After a huge amount of press and more hype in computer circles than GTA4, Metal Gear Solid 4 has been released almost everywhere. While the world didn’t end and life goes on there are still reviews and news stories to look forward to.
For those who have been keeping an eye on the backstory for Metal Gear Solid GameTrailers.com has updated their retrospective series. It includes now not only the older console titles but also the handheld titles and finally a total game summary including the stories from all the previous titles in one single retrospective part. While the download size is not small at 100mb each part one cannot pass up watching this video series if interested in Metal Gear.
This has to be one of the most odd ideas for a signing on the planet.
Hideo Kojima, the man behind the Metal Gear game franchise with
MGS4 out soon will be in London. Only it won’t be for a quick tour
instead he will be at chain store HMV’s Oxford Street store in London
on (my birthday btw) June 2nd.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who are familiar with the
popular long running game franchise. The cutscenes in Metal Gear
Solid 4 are going to be the longest yet even beating previous editions
in the series with single cutscenes running at up to 90 minutes a time.
