Hideo Kojima twitters tips on how to play Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has been quite active on Twitter, following the release of Phantom Pain. The popular designer first asked players if they’re enjoying the game, and the results were overwhelmingly positive, as you might expect. He later followed with several advices for everyone who’s currently playing, so if you are interested be sure to follow both his Japanese and English twitter accounts to get all the best tips.

And here are a few, alreayd translated:


“I see that everyone calls the helicopter when you can actually just pause the game and go back at the base lol”

“Is the online working? Is it down for everyone or is it just me?”

“If I hear another shitty anime opening as the helicopter theme (seriously, why?), I’ll fulton someone by their dick. Please use only songs that were made before the date the game is set in. And no beatles lol”


Kojima may quit movies to direct videogames

Rumors are running widly around the web since GameSpot reported that some friends know some friends whose dads work at Konami and they told them that respected video game designer Hideo Kojima will leave the company and find a new job in the videogame business.

This would mean that the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be his last masterpiece of his career as a movie director and occasional anime enthusiast. The rumors has yet to be proven or disproved, but all fans are distressed at the possibility that the Metal Gear Solid saga will end up in the hands of an american developer and that Silent Hills may end up as videogame.

Konami is also pretty positive that no one will notice the disappearance of Kojima’s name on every single cover of every game he worked on, and reported to the press that ‘he’s alright‘.
