    the fact that it turned out to be deeply plagiarised and went unnoticed for three entire games is wild to me

    (the themes that replaced it were still very excellent though)

    All I can hear in that kazoo is Danny Boy. Even though I know it's not.

    The even stranger part is that the first time Kojima was confronted with this, is on film.
    It's an interview with a Russian game mag.

    There is a game that was discussed years ago on the Beastcast when Austin Walker was still on the show that involved a physical book that had puzzles in it you needed to solve with an iPad app and I can not remember the name of it and it is slowly driving me mad.

    Are you sure you’re not thinking of Year Walk? That was an iPhone game that also had an iPad component if you had access to both.

  • NosfNosf Registered User regular
    Sounds like that book / wand thing from Sony years ago.

    Now that I think of it, Patrick was the one who raved about Year Walk and Device 6.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Year Walk and Device 6 were rad!

    But this is something else, a physical book that leveraged the camera on the iPad.

    Unless this was all just some fever dream.

    There was the Fatal Frame with a book for 3DS. It sucked though.

    I don’t think Austin would by hyping up a PS3 product that is related to Harry Potter.

    Not that Harry Potter book or journal 29. Though journal 29 seems rad and I may go buy that.

    It had like... a bit of a frost and lost tech feel. Sorry for dragging you all down the lanes of my horrible memory.

    I think it's The Ice-Bound Concordance. Episode 36 of the beastcast is tagged with it, but I haven't listened to make sure it's the game you're thinking of.

    Why, did he have beef with that franchise before the author's shittery became known?

    IIRC even before her open TERF support, her handling of first nations and indigenous people in her setting's supplementary works were questionable?

    I mean, shit, once the pop culture shine wore off there's some uncomfortable shit staring everyone right in our faces regarding the slave cast that are so brainwashed they'd rather say slaves to abusive masters than be free, and the only characters who are pro-freedom are treated as kooks or naive.

    Yeah, it was really unrealistic, something like that would obviously never happen in real life.

    The themes of the games deal a lot with purposeful, manufactured copies. Gregson-Williams did the soundtrack and composed that song, so I am guessing he was told to do that, does he has a history of pulling from other stuff? I don't usually give the benefit of the doubt to kojima, but like........ seems pretty much exactly what he would do.

    MGSV starts with a cover of a song in a game chock full of licensed originals as direct foreshadowing.

    I was kind of bummed to watch the GB guys fumble and go "why is THAT song a cover?!?!?!?!?" over and over. I thought it was pretty clear.

    if the MGS composer was told to do that without getting permission from the original composer (which it sounds like they didn't), this isn't kojima being a secret genius and using real-world actions to enhance his in-game themes, it's just him being an asshole

    (also if I've got my facts right, we're talking about the original MGS main theme, which Gregson-Williams didn't compose, he just arranged it for MGS2. so whatever happened he wouldn't have been directly involved anyway)

    Tappi Iwase is the original offender, not Gregson-Williams?

    Those sound similar but I could definitely see that being inspiration and not plagiarism.

    Also I never picked up on the MGS V "this song is a cover but the rest aren't" thing. That's fun.

    I distinctly remember Brad making that very point during GotY for MSGV for Best Music.

    (It stuck in my mind because Drew was still playing V so he had to step out briefly just so Brad could make said point.)

    Also, the Arthurian tropes kind of don't interact well with the themes of the later books.
