Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
As you may have already learned, Konami had fired Hideo Kojima and said it’s canning the beloved Metal Gear Solid series. However, there are fans, who want to see some kind of continuation of the franchise. Or at least a remake. One fan has taken initiative into his own hands and created his own version of the first Metal Gear Solid game with Unreal Engine 4.
The fan’s name is Airam Hernandez. He’s from Spain, but he currently resides in Dublin. He wants to remake the groundbreaking 1998 stealth game with the help of the modern technology and with all popular graphical features. There’s also a working trailer of the game, which looks incredible. You can check the project’s official Facebook page for more info. Dan Meadowcroft – another developer – is helping with the production.
This is an unauthorized project, so don’t get your hopes up. There’s a high probability the game is going to be banned by Konami. Still it’s a nice “what if” project which has some amazing visuals and great design.
Well, the first objective of this project was to recreate just the Shadow Moses environments and make a “museum game” to those who wanted to explore the base with current technology.
My surprise was that after a few weeks, everybody was talking about it! So many online magazines started writing articles and I received a lot of messages offering help and support. That’s the reason I decided to remake the entire game!
I also have to thank a person who is helping me a lot! His name is Dan Meadowcroft, and he is doing an amazing job with all the music aspects of the game and is also in charge with the conversations with Konami and all the public relations.
