Kojima Cryptically Gives Opinion on Obama's Nobel Prize

Joystiq writes:

"If you thought the writing on the cutscene-friendly Metal Gear Solid franchise was confusing, the reason for that should be crystal clear when you read the personal blog of the series' creator, Hideo Kojima. The blog's latest update imparted the enigmatic developer's feelings on President Barack Obama's recent, unexpected reception of the Nobel Peace Prize:

"President Obama, who declared 'A World Without Nuclear Weapons' in Prague, has won the Nobel Peace Prize. Has the era at last started shifting? The start of the Peace Walker plan? I hope that comes to be. 'Peace will not walk to you.' 'You must both walk towards one another.' From the gym."

Not only does this entry reveal that Kojima writes like William Shatner speaks, but it also exposes a grim truth of the Metal Gear series -- it's all real. The GW construct. The Philosophers' Legacy. The Patriots. FoxDie. And, of course, somewhere there exists a real-life Metal Gear. Based on this post, we're guessing it's in a gym."

Any one else find that funny?

Definition of "Cryptic" from merriam-webster:

"having or seeming to have a hidden or ambiguous meaning"

Kind of like everything Kojima says/does.

If you actually find this message to be "cryptic" then you should probably work on your reading comprehension skills.

Ok, that was funny and strange.

Well, I'm out of here before this devolves into another political squabble in the comments.

The wording in the article was weird so I went to read the original blog post. "from the gym" part was just saying he was posting that blog entry from the gym...
Anyway, so Solidus Obama gets the Nobel Prize... wonder what Solid is doing now...

I was skeptical on the wording too, I checked it out also. He was posting from a Gym.

if this becomes a political discussion where some guy says a comment that obviously goes too far and everyone responds to him, but then his comment gets deleted and all I see tomorrow is the responses to his comment I'll be super pissed

MGS4 is about the rise of the Private military industrial complex. Goons for Hire. Sound familiar ?

Darkstorn3347d ago

Yes, very much so. It also has deep philosophical meanings, but the sociopolitical commentary is the most apparent. I actually think it did an amazing job of balancing heavy-handedness with a commonsensical timeline of events. It's an absolutely godly game overall. :D

America(I'm american) is spreading itself too thin with all the wars so it makes high use of PMC's and has been for a long time. Something just rubs me wrong about pmc's in general.
