Hideo Kojima must be sipping on that fountain of youth alongside Keanu Reeves and Pharrell Williams because, christ on a bike, he turns 50 this week. 50. How is this possible. He hasn't aged a day since the first Metal Gear Solid came out. I call Nano Machines. Clearly.
I reckon Kojima is about two steps removed from becoming a cyber ninja with a samurai sword and a pair of nifty high heels.
Anyway, the point of the story is this: Hideo Kojima is about to turn 50 and, to celebrate, the good people at 4Chan made him a present: a massive patchwork quilt of memes, drawings and happy birthday greetings. It's pretty amazing.
