I'm an Unreal Technology Consultant currently located in Newcastle, UK. I studied Computer Games Programming at the University of Derby and Computer Games Development at the University of Central Lancashire. I have an avid interest in game design from a technical perspective and visual effects. In my spare time I enjoy my local live music scene, and a good pint of ale (or six). I currently work for Pitbull on Epic Games' projects, recently worked at Lionhead Studios, shipping Fable: The Journey and co-authored the third volume of the UE3 Mastering Unreal Technologies books.

Well, a lot of things are different than they are on paper. I guess the memo the journalists got wasn't specific enough, because I honestly don't believe Konami would purposefully stop people from giving their honest reviews (they didn't stop them on the last 3 games).

I personally think that EGM overreacted. Even if MGS4 got mediocre reviews (unlikely, but still), Konami knows it's going to sell like cakes that are hot. That's really the fact of the matter.

The reason Konami put out the criteria on the MGS4 reviews was because they didn't want things to be spoiled for the user, especially concerning the length and content of said cutscenes. They didn't expect journalism groups to take it so literally, so they made the changes recently to accept that.

On Wikipedia:

Kojima Productions spokesperson Ryan Payton has since explained more specifically what the NDA restricts, and has ammended "some items [that] are outdated and require more explanation." He also listed the length of install times, noting that the restrictions were intended to prevent spoilers regarding what occurs during the installations.

Just clearing that up because it looks like you didn't notice the update to the situation.

I just saw your comment over on Kadish's page about people getting marked down for having a negative opinion. Thank you! This happens to me all the time- actually, I get marked down for positive opinions now, since someone's got some kind of grudge against me.

What it "Cooking content"? I read your post about the deplorable state of the UT3 forums, but I didn't really grasp what you were getting at.
