Now that MGS4 is coming up, Konami is having a METAL GEAR SOLID WORLD TOUR which is basically staff members going around the world to sign shit. Hideo Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa, David Hayter, Yumi Kikuchi, Ken Imaizumi and Ryan Payton. Keep in mind they're not all signing at the same place, instead being split up around the world.

In America, Kojima and Kikuchi will sign in NYC on the 12th at the Virgin Megastore for the midnight launch of the game. At the same time Yoji Shinkawa will be doing the midnight show in Japan, while David Hayter + Ryan Payton take on California. At the end they'll all reunite in SAN FRANCISO, where I won't be at. :(

http://www.konami.jp...d/index_en.html

Basically I plan on attending both Kojima and Kikuchi NYC sessions. I'm wondering if anyone wants to meet up because well, I'm going to be spending 9+ hours on a line? Plus I'm a minor so I need someone to buy the game for me.

Amsterdam tomorrow? DAMN! If I knew this earlier, I'd get a friend of mine to get an autograph for me.

Ahaha, nice pic.

Dammit, it's too late, can't call or text him anymore, either. No Kojima for me.

You are amazing Psyburn.

I can't seriously believe that someone would get excited over something like this.

Man Psyburn, why would you stand in line for 9 hours to see a man who mightn't even look at you and probably doesn't care about you

Also, just get your dad to buy the game for you.

Strangeluv, sorry but you will never understand what it's like to have a hero. Also, he's no William Shatner, I know that based on personal testimonials.

Yeah, my dad will probably come with me. Only he's a really boring person, so it'll be terrible to wait 9+ hours in a line with him. Since Virgin only lets you get one item - THEIR ITEM - signed, I'll end up with two signed MGS4's. I'll sneak in a copy of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake which he WILL SIGN. Than I'll go home to GameStop, pick up my copy of the LE and go to his second signing, get that signed and another item I have at home.

I can't guarantee I will be able to get the autograph for either of the signings. The first one is at midnight, but the earliest I can show up is after my school exams. 1 hour train ride, taxi, etc will probably be 1-2 hours. So maybe 2:30-3:00pm? which is 8 hours early. The second one is very slim as it is at 5:00pm, and my school ends at 12:30. If I don't either well, I'll be very miserable as I've literally had dreams about meeting Kojima for the past 6 years.

I'll probably sell off one of the copies on eBay for to cover all the costs + extra. Not sure if I want to wait a month to get Lee Meriwhether to autograph them before that.

he seemed like an alright guy when i meet him... doesn't speak much(if any) English though

Yeah, he seems to have some very limited skill though. At the London signing he signed "NO PLACE FOR HIDEO" by a fan's request. Also during one of the podcasts he said "....Ai....rei...k..... de...de uhh...movie...loganz...run.."

So, Australia isn't part of the world.
Funny how all his Tour locations are in the northern Hemisphere.
Fucking Norts.

I think you should answer that question.

I unfortunately see them at the odd anime/game convention that comes up here twice yearly. :(

Like I don't KNOW THEM but I've seen them each time the last 4 years so it is kind of creepy that someone from (*checks Liman's profile*) BLOODY SWEDEN OF ALL PLACES should post a picture of them.

I don't think it's that weird man.  Like these are pretty good games and maybe the director is a celebrity etc?

Why would anyone know people like that?

Better. I will say their dedicated to.. whatever reason it is they wanted to dress up like Kingdom Hearts characters. Something like this would never reach New Zealand so it kinda sucks really if I did ever want Kojimas autograph or pay a ridiculous amount of money for it online.

Oh come on, it's Hideo Kojima.

It's not like Psyburn hasn't worshipped his homebuilt shrine to MGS for the last few years.

jesus christ man there is just so much wrong with this post

could you really not pick a better hero than kojima?  is this really the MOST IMPRESSIVE GUY you could come up with?  waiting nine hours in line is beyond me for something as worthless as an autographed game and being "very miserable" if you miss it because you've been dreaming of the day you would meet him for years apparently is actually legitimately kind of disturbing.  i can't believe your dad would put up with this shit.
