Both of you realize that it was stated in the US official Playstation magazine that Kojima is specifically the one who went to Platinum Games because their internal studio was making it too stealthy, right? He wanted it to be more about action, and his own team couldn't get into that mindset
He went to Platinum because they make the best action games in the business
Im only being a Kojima loving Zealot, as expected.
In all seriousness, I loved Bayonetta and Vanquish was alright too from what I played.
Im just reaaaaaaally bitter about Metal Gear going this route instead of a full blown Metal Gear title.
