MGS4 90 Minute Cut-scenes!?

It has been reported that some of the cut-scenes in Metal Gear Solid 4 will be up to 90 minutes long! If this is true (which it likely is), then my interest in this game has just plummeted immensely. Now I can see why the game can't fit on a Blu-ray disc; it's because Kojima can't deliver a story in any other way than 90 minute cut-scenes that take up shit loads of space. It's also been reported that you can skip the cut-scenes, but why would you? the MGS series has always been about the story and I am interested in what is happening in this "world", but I would actually like to, you know, be in control.

I have to say that I do respect Kojima. I think he is visually a great designer, but this just shows even more that he should really be working in film rather than games. I want to play the game, not watch it. I already know that I will get this game because I want to see where the story is going, but I can't say that I'm as excited as I once was anymore.

Prototype Will Wait Until 2009

I mentioned my disappointment with the recent gameplay video for Prototype on the last Episode of Distributed Failure. I also mentioned the fact that after seeing the video that it would be wise for the developers to just push the release date into 2009. Guess what, that is exactly what happened yesterday.

"we need more time to deliver the game the team initially set out to create."
- Sierra reps.

I know that one of the things that was supposed to be a big aspect of the game originally was co-op; but they ended up scrapping the co-op because of time constraints. Now that the game has been officially delayed I hope that co-op in Prototype might resurface. The chance that it might actually return is very low, but I know that people love co-op and if Prototype let's me play with friends... I'll have a much greater desire to give this game a chance.

LBP = Low Blow Pop = Delay

The saddest delay for me is the delay of LittleBigPlanet. I have been open about my love for LBP and it is actually my most wanted PS3 game (more than MGS4). It didn't get pushed back that far (just a month), but imagine if GTAIV was pushed back a month. It may only be a month, but it is still a significant amount of extra time I'll have to wait until I get to play the game.

Why does Sony hate me so much right now?...and yes they hate you too :)

We = Homeless Until End of Year

Home was recently delayed from Summer to Fall of 2008, but now the wait will be a little bit longer. Now we can expect to see ourselves in Home by the end of the year and from what I've read it seems that Home will always be in beta...much like Gmail (Hey, I like Gmail). All I really have to say is that I want to try Home out. If this public beta is supposed to be a beta; then why do they keep delaying it? They should release it asap so that they can really test it out and knock out the kinks. I thought that was the point of a beta.

I guess we can all just go into Second Life and mingle in there. A little chit, a little chat, and a few hundred rubber dildos (what?)...I can throw all the dildos I want at people's faces in Second Life right now, but I will never be able to do that in Home. So what the hell is up with all these delays?

Killzone Pushed to 2009

Well it seems that Killzone 2 has been pushed back until 2009. I don't find this at all surprising, but I do find it a bit sad. I don't want to sound cruel, but this has been a hyped game for the visuals and has been in the works for a long time. My problem is that the sequel to Resistance (a launch title for the PS3), which is looking to be fantastic, will be coming out this Fall. Killzone 2 (a sequel to a PS2 game) will be coming out after Resistance 2 and I personally find that funny. It just makes you wonder why it is you're waiting for a specific game, a game that isn't even from a solid franchise.

It would be the equivalent of Just Cause 2 coming out before Mercenaries 2. Though that still could happen (who knows with Mercs 2), I highly doubt that the game will see any more delays. Another possible reason for this delay is because they don't want Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 competing against each other. Who knows, but Sony has been dishing out a lot of delays recently and I just hope this isn't going to be an even bigger trend.
