Metal Gear Solid 5's Doctor Look-Alike Planning To Sue Kojima For Using Likeness And Theories

Ever since Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was "unofficially" announced at the VGA 2012 awards, the game has been nothing but roller coaster ride.

cant tell if this is a publicity stunt or if this guy is just dumb.

Then again this is gamingbolt. This site has been reporting a lot of made up BS based on their own incompetency and made up sensationalized headlines to get hits so I'd take this story with a grain of salt.

This whole thing is so insane, this has to be a big publicity stunt. E3 is going to blow some people's minds when Kojima reveals himself.

andibandit849d ago

reveals himself as big boss?

subtenko849d ago

Im tired of all these MGS5 articles about Kojima. I wouldnt be surprised if some of this was a publicity stunt, but I will also be open minded that its just websites posting anything they can about Kojima.

It's about time someone sued Kojima! He always did this and got away with it. The original Metal Gear had Michael Beihn from Terminator on the cover and Kojima said AS ALWAYS "it's just a coincidence." Then Metal Gear Solid comes out and he says that any resemblance to Snake Plisken or Kurt Russell was again "a coincidence." This POS has never owned up to stealing likenesses because he doesn't want to pay the royalties. He's an assh*le and has always been an assh*le, but somehow you nerds always want to s*ck him off and praise him for being a One Hit Wonder. I heard about this earlier and I hope it sticks. BTW, it's been reported that he's a tyrant when dealing with development team. No surprise Konami had enough of this diva

Let's see:
-Code name Solid "Snake"
-Goes by the name Iriquois "Plisken" in MGS2
-Unkempt white guy with a mullet and an eye patch who smokes.

Not Kurt Russell at all.

Michael Beihn only belongs in one game - Far Cry: Blood Dragon!

They based this whole article on an email from a journalist to the doctor, linking to a picture of the similarities.

The doctor responded "I will contact my attourney".

That is not even remotely the same as suing anyone for anything.

They based the doctor's likeness off of Ian Moore, who is also voice acting the character, and happens to look pretty much identical to this guy.

It's more difficult to read this in Brock Samson's voice than was anticipated.

Erik7357849d ago

I read that with kojima's voice lol

Dannycr850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

It's not Kojima's fault that he looks like a generic (evil) doctor or (mad) scientist xD. He even looks like the Mad Scientist in the old Bugs Bunny cartoons xD

Nwah850d ago

I hope nobody believes the Reddit user that posted this supposed Skype call. Everyone in the comments are calling him out.

gameseveryday850d ago

I read through the comments. He is actually being called out for being rude in the original post.

This doctor has a planned talk in LA the same time E3 is taking place.

DarXyde850d ago

I hope his talk starts like this :

"I haven't been here in LA in quite some time. Yes, yes, you'd like to know how long. I'm afraid it's been... Nine years. "

Gatsu849d ago (Edited 849d ago )

I heard this was fake info o_O or is it ?

Was searching the web yesterday, and he is attending some event or meeting few days before E3 I think, in Annapolis but not sure about LA.

Glymner849d ago

Annapolis is on the wrong coast.

Gatsu849d ago


Yes I know it is :P. But I haven't found info of him talking in LA aka west coast.

Give me a link and I believe.

Moe-Gunz849d ago

Confirmed to be a fake twitter account after I posted this. Sorry for the mix up.
