Oh Kojima, You Teasing Bastard
We already know that Hideo-kun is the master of hype. He had gamers like me frothing at the mouth to play MGS4 for so long that I thought I’d go crazy. I can’t give full credit to Kojima-san on this one. The hype this time goes to the PR manager for Kojima Productions, Jiro Oish.
If you were paying attention to any of the gaming sites waay back in the frosty months of October, Kojima was the first to announce that there was going to be a big ‘surprise’ in the the PSP MGS title Peace Walker. Now it turns out that Mr Oish has begun saying the same things…except they leave out one big detail, any hints to what that surprise may be. All that the guy would say is the following:
“There’s another ultimate charm outside of co-op play hidden in Peace Walker”
Yup, no information there. I guess we’ll just have to keep waiting until the game comes out so we can spoil it for the rest of you out there in the land.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for. It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are. I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own. It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
