Konami's E3 Press Show: In And Out Like A One Night Stand

Konami hosted their heavily hyped pre-E3 pre taped presser today, and it was frightfully SHORT!! I was expecting at least an hour of info, but we only got a measly 30 minutes. Actually, we got less than that if you decide not to include all the jabber about mobile gaming and soccer/futbol. Nothing against you soccer fans out there. I know that Konami make make a crap ton of cash off their PES franchise, probably enough to make EA blush when compared to sales of the FIFA games. I just don't give two craps. In the end, the real attention came down to two games: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Castlevania : Lords of Shadow 2.

The bog reveal was that Keifer Sutherland, Jack Bauer himself, would be voice-acting Naked Snake in the new Metal Gear. Not just the voice, either. Keifer got his himself all digitized up to be the visual mouthpiece for Big Boss as well. Right now, there's a bit of a backlash happening, as old school Metal Gear fans really want David Hayter, Snake's original voice actor, to reprise his role. Then there's others who believe that there's some conspiracy going on, and that David is still in the mix somehow. We won't know until we actually play the game, we just don't know when that will be yet.

Then there's the new Castlevania, which we actually do know is coming out this winter. Plus, we know for sure that there will be a demo on the E3 show floor. Oh, and the game looks like tits. See?
