Anonymous asked: Do you think MGSV will be released on PC? The PS3 version looks like trash while the PS4 is underwhelming in general. Don't understand Mr Kojima and Konami's decision to ignore PC when Fox Engine would be at its full potential on PC.

MGSV is a current gen game. It’s being ported to new consoles, but it’s almost impossible to think that something would dramatically improve.  Grand Theft Auto V on the other hand is going to be adding more foliage, vehicles, people, and more “bustle” essentially.

  1. Men do not wear footwear featuring higher heels today
  2. The sole purpose for deep heels on men’s footwear was originally to enhance the appearance of the calf muscles on display and look “fabulous”
  3. It was a deep, universally held belief in Europe for centuries that being masculine was intertwined with being posh and meticulously grooming one’s appearance (hence heels)
  4. Some guy just made a comment about how that’s gay, and everybody suddenly changed their mind about it because they didn’t want to be thought of as gay, but then women wore them for some reason not specified


Here are my responses to these claims:

Nope. Interviews and stuff are needed to put the puzzle together.
