On Christmas day, diehard Metal Gear Solid fans faithfully tuned into a broadcast called Kojima Station. The hope was that Kojima would give fans a neat look behind-the-scenes on Metal Gear Solid V. Maybe he'd even give people a release date. Who knows!
Woah, woah, woah. WHAT? I’m out. I’m still traumatised by the horse in Shadow of the Colossus. I don’t think I can take a dog-based loss. Especially when we’ve established Snake’s wolf is adorable.
