Everyone in Metal Gear Solid is David Bowie!
why didn’t anyone tell me
bind = mlown
Kazuhira Miller appears here in real life on the face of David Bowie, making it unclear whether or not The Sunglasses have indirectly influenced Hideo Kojima using Bowie as a medium.
Sony Steps Up in a Big Way at E3
Sony came to E3 prepared. They’ve been touting for months now that the PS4 will be the place for gamers, and today, Sony backed up that statement. But they weren’t without entertainment offerings like their direct competitor. The first thing to mention though, is that the PS4 will be out this holiday season in the US and Europe at $399. (Phew!)
Sony spent a little time discussing their entertainment features on the PS4. Their services included original programming from Sony Pictures and Sony Music. PS4 will also include access to Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited on day one. All of the video services on PS3 (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, MLB TV, NHL Center Ice, etc.) will be present, as well as Red Box Instant, Flixster, and Live Events Viewer.
Sony also gave some love to the PS3 and Vita, highlighting games coming out on both systems within the next year. On Vita there will be:
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate
Final Fantasy X & X-II HD
God of War 1 & 2 HD
The Walking Dead: 400 Days
The Vita will also see a The Walking Dead/Vita bundle.
On PS3, Sony highlighted:
The Last of Us
Beyond: Two Souls
Gran Turismo 6
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate
Grand Theft Auto V
The PS3 also will be getting a bundle with GTA V.
The Playstation 4 was next on deck, with Sony unloading all their guns. To kick off the games, Sony showed back-to-back trailers for the following first-party exclusives:
The Order: 1886 (A fantasy steampunk game set in London made by both Santa Monica Studios and Ready At Dawn Studios, the creators of God of War)
Killzone: Shadow Fall
inFamous: Second Son
The Dark Sorcerer (which is rumored to be merely a tech demo by Quantic Dream)
Sony then showed their indie support some love, first showing off The Witness (an exclusive by the creator of Braid) and Transistor (an exclusive from the creators of Bastion). Next, Sony went rapid-fire, listing off games that will either be console exclusive, or debuted early on PS4. The games shown were:
Don’t Starve (Klei Entertainment)
Mercenary Kings (Tribute Games)
OctoDad: Dadliest Catch (Young Horses)
Secret Ponchos (Switchblade Monkeys)
Ray’s the Dead (Ragtag Studios)
Outlast (Red Barrels)
Oddworld: New and Tasty (Oddworld Inhabitants)
Galaxy (17-Bit Games)
After the indie developers, Square-Enix took the stage to announce that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was still in development and has been renamed Final Fantasy XV. Square-Enix also revealed that the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III is finally on its way.
Sony showed more third-party support by showing off more in-game footage for Watch_Dogs, Elder Scrolls Online (as well as announcing early beta exclusivity to PS4), Destiny, and announced a new Mad Max game.
After the games talk was done, Sony clarified that the PS4 will have no restrictions on used games, will have no online requirements, and that games will require no authentication; completely differentiating themselves from Microsoft and the Xbox One.
With a strong showing of games, support for gamers with its lack of restrictions and more affordable price, it’s hard to argue the strength of Sony’s presentation. It all ends up coming down to the individual consumer and what games you want to play, but in a worst-case scenario for Sony, the playing ground is even. How do you feel about Sony’s E3 briefing? Will you be buying a PS4 or an Xbox One? Stay tuned for any more announcements from E3 and a recap of Nintendo’s Direct video tomorrow on VGN.
The PlayStation 4.

Few things make me happier than cops on fire.
If these were animals instead of police officers, you’d be losing your mind. It would be the end of your little world.
There are no words completely express my scorn for you. That won’t stop me from taking a shot at it anyway.
You speak unskilfully: or, if your knowledge be more, it is much darkened in your malice.
You are deformed, crooked, old and sere, Ill-faced, worse bodied, shapeless everywhere; vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind; stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
You are not worth all the insults that I, nor anyone else, can ever give to you. You are a leech.
What’s that in the sky? It is a rarely seen form of lightning confirmed only about 25 years ago: a red sprite.
Recent research has shown that following a powerful positive cloud-to-ground lightning strike, red sprites may start as 100-meter balls of ionized air that shoot down from about 80-km high at 10 percent the speed of light and are quickly followed by a group of upward streaking ionized balls.
The above image, taken a few days ago above central South Dakota, USA, captured a bright red sprite, and is a candidate for the first color image ever recorded of a sprite and aurora together.
Distant storm clouds cross the bottom of the image, while streaks of colorful aurora are visible in the background. Red sprites take only a fraction of a second to occur and are best seen when powerful thunderstorms are visible from the side.
Tonight’s big premiere features the work of Thomas and Jesse. Thanks, guys, for a job well done.
I´ve been pretty lucky to do storyboards for two episodes of »Adventure Time« with the amazing Jesse Moynihan.It was a great experience working for my very favorite cartoon show.
The first of these episodes is »The Suitor« and it airs this monday, 05.20.2013 at 7:30 on Cartoon Network. ~
Edit: Sorry, it´s 7:30 not 7:45
