Well I have nothing else to say really, as I hate both MGS and Ninja Gaiden.
Hideo Kojima should be making movies, not games and Itagaki should stop being an asshole and make NG easier.
I don't see how you could have ever doubted NG2. The first one (and it's two remakes) scored over 90%. They weren't that popular though....but I think this one could reach a million if MS advertises it.
