Former Localizer Dishes Kojima Dirt

Jeremy Blaustein, translator of the first Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, gets frank as hell as he discusses things like trials and tribulations of voice recording, Snatcher's abysmal SEGA CD sales, Silent Hill ripping off movies like The Cell and Barton Fink. His thoughts on series creator Hideo Kojima?

"First of all, he [Kojima] is an auteur. From the very start, he has a large ego, which is a necessary thing in order to drive a large number of people to follow a project. You've gotta have a big ego and be sure you're right about everything."

The story is too old to be commented.

How does Silent Hill rip off The Cell when the game came out first?


Damn, i guess there are a lot of Kojima Haters out there.

Lets not forget how awful video game stories and Cinematics were before Metal Gear Solid for the PS1 came out !

I mean its like people totally forget how this game actually changed the industry.

I mean, maybe Kojima is a Jerk, and I probably wouldn't like him either. But I don't know him like that, so it really doesnt matter. For those of you that know him personally, I'm sorry for your experience, cuz I've known some real assholes in my time and I understand.

But for those of you who don't. Stop frontin' like you do, and know that its natural for you to not like someone who seems to be at the top of the game.

As for me, I can't wait to play this game. And I will always acknowledge what Metal Gear Solid has done for this industry.

love peace and nappiness, game fans
