Kojima is basically Konami's life support. He needs to leave the company so that they can pass away in peace.

I wonder what the future will hold.  Mobile Suikoden?  Compant merge? CapKonami... fuck.
Makes me sad as far as the fate of Suikoden and Castlevania.

Sold IPs hopefully, since they're otherwise languishing in Konami's catalog or, god forbid, doomed to become MM XOver/BoFVI style Mobile Shovelware.

Hopefully, somebody like Nintendo can get their hands on Castlevania so that they can include Simon Belmont into SSBV, as well as make an actual full-on Metroidvania where Samus Aran is actually exploring Dracula's Castle that somehow materialized on some distant planet or something.

Outside of a Kickstarter that would involve buying up the rights so that some of the original team can make a proper sequel, I can't imagine anyone doing anything exceptionally useful with the Suikoden IP.

They run more businesses than just the one of video games. And as much as a bullet to the heart this news are, hardcore Metal Gear fans (myself included) knew that this was gonna happen someday for a very, very long time. The shock however comes from how soon it happened given the bright future KojiPro has shown to have.

But either way, whatever Kojima and what might remain of KojiPro goes I'll follow them just like I've done when Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, etc. leave Capcom.

Ys VI (and Akiba'strip) is getting a Steam release. Hopefully they're putting up the version with the anime cutscenes instead of the one we got on the PS2 with those fugly 3D CGI cutscenes (or, given XSeeD's general awesomesauciness, an option for either or).

Too bad I already played Ark and it's not very high on replay list, though the no-item mode does sound good, since seriously those items totally broke Ark and Seven (along with the über charged magic swords). Not a bad game otherwise, I generally dig its area design over Origin at least.

Nah, I'm sure it's about the final DLC pack for Hyrule Warrors. I made the comment already that regardless of them assuring it's no joke, they should probably realize that no video game news outlet is going to report on it until the day after.

Loved it. xD

IIRC, last years April Fool's was pretty underwhelming but seems we're pretty well underway this year

FEvsSMT would be fucking golden.  Hell, even just a Wii FE game.
Amongst honestly anything.  Here's a smarter persons list of all that would be awesome :
Quote
F-Zero Ultra
Metroid U/Metroid 3DS
Mother 4 / (Mother Trilogy on VC)
Super Mario Galaxy3
Eternal Darkness 2
Star Tropics Wii U
Robot U
Advance Wars 3DS
Kid Icarus Uprising 2 Wii U
Wave Race Wii U
1080 Wii U
Shenmue 3
Seiken Densetsu 3 3DS
Dragon Quest 7 localization
Squaresoft Hidden Gems Collection - Live a Live, Bahamut Lagoon etc
Mega Man Legends 3
Castlevania: The Dark Souls Edition
Metroid Dread
Seiken Densetsu Reboot
Skies of Arcadia 2
Phantasy Star 5
Metroid Another M
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Betrayalton

None of these are too much to ask for...right?? :D

I'd put this in YouTube, but eh, I kinda want it here too because Anita Sarkeesian is quite the gaming buzzword these days.

Taking a break from criticism, a new sort of spin-off batch of videos has her looking at POSITIVE gaming female role models, starting with the very minimalist-drawn 'Scythian'!
https://youtu.be/gXmj2yJNUmQ

A great example, I think.

Love a good pooch pun
Even though they look cute as hell, the artist who did a ResEvil 6 dog picture blew the idea out of the water (good breed selections and all):

No, I mean Sherlock Hound. The whole thing was one big reference to it. It even used the same character design of Sherlock right at the end there. Brings a tear to my eye. Loved that show when I was a teenager...

I feel like there was something missing in my life now, and Sherlock Hound was it.

You know I had just seen this go by back when I was looking up Saturday Morning Cartoons made during the Renaissance Age of Animation.

For those too young to remember, Saturday mornings was the time and place to watch the best cartoons and other animated shows, and in those days, if you had to miss them because of Soccer practice or Swimming lessons, you were SOL, because reruns were rare and the Internet consisted of those AOL disks that were barely usable as coasters, let alone providing anyone with affordable online, nevermind that talking about Youtube to someone of that era would have them think you were some kind of washed up Surfer or Skateboarder. Of course, Saturday Morning Cartoons were despised by network execs who wanted nothing more than to slash and burn that programming block with extreme prejudice.

R.I.P. Saturday Morning Cartoons. Even though the Internet has rendered you obsolete and nothing but crappy Saturday morning news programs and Wrestling are left in your smoldering ruins, you shall be missed. :(

*snip*

Before Castlevania Dark Souls, I want a Castlevania Musou game. I would play the shit out of that.

With all the other series' getting one, Castlevania deserves one more than anything: The characters, the weapons, the monsters, the music... everything would fit so well into the ___ Warriors games.

Better crossover genre for the series than a fighting game, anyway >_>
