This Is Not Hideo Kojima

I have been going to the Tokyo Game Show since 2004. I believe this is the first year that Hideo Kojima is not appearing on stage.

Here is 2004.

This is not Hideo Kojima. It's an announcer guy and Sentarou, a Japanese comedian who really loves Metal Gear. Neither of them made The Phantom Pain. And who wants to hear from the guy who created the game? Eh...

The odd thing -- in a year of odd Konami things -- is that Hideo Kojima was at this year's Tokyo Game Show, but as a visitor.

This reminds me of when Kojima recently wandered around Tokyo autographing things because there wasn't a signing session set up for The Phantom Pain.

    He has found the fountain of youth...I'm sure of it!

      I know how this sounds, but it has a lot to do with his ethnicity.

      My wife is Chinese, and about a year older than me, but for as long as we've been a couple people have assumed that she's somewhere in the vicinity of 5-10 years younger than me. Apparently white skin just ages and creases earlier.

        Can confirm.

        My partner is 2 years younger than me. I still get asked for ID when buying beer.
