    I wonder whom going to complain about Quiet? That beings said, this is actually one of the last few games I want to play, the second being Undertale.

    Heh, one’s a prequel and the other one inspired by Earthbound

    Amazing! This gave me a cool Apocalypse Now vibe — just right for its historical setting. Yoji Shinkawa’s art is always such a pleasure to see. I wonder if they’ll be releasing a full artbook as well.

    Man, I’d take Yoji Shinkawa over a dozen Yoshitaka Amanos or Akira Toriyamas.

    I wonder if after he leaves Konami will cut his hands just like supposedly did in ancient times so he can’t replicate his work at Konami.

    While I love the 3, Shinkawa is the most varied of the 3 if you discount creature design, which I do think Amano and Toriyama do better.

    I doubt most from Japan realize what a shit hole NeoGaf has become. They just know it to be a popular gaming forum.

    I had a good chuckle at the mention of Toriyama, since he already makes enough same-face characters to facilitate a dozen Toriyamas as is.

    The last one. That’s Shinkawa’s farewell to mgs.

    If only they had this on the covers…

    I have a feeling Konami might try to continue to milk MGS without Kojima.

    I love all three. I can’t compare them to each other.
