Nerd Rage - Update
Phantom Pained

Friday
March 22nd, 2013

From the minute The Phantom Pain premiered at the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards there was talk about the truth behind the mysterious title. Its development team, Moby Dick Studios, and creator, Joakim Mogren were complete unknowns. Unknowns don't premier a new game at the VGA Awards. They generally don't sit with Konami's team or have a site that's only a few weeks old, either.

Oh, and the game stars a character who looks suspiciously like Metal Gear Solid's Snake/Big Boss.

Then there's the fact that Joakim is an anagram of Kojima -- as in MGS creator Hideo Kokjima. Or the fact the title font has gaps that "Metal Gear Solid V" fits right into.

Now games journalist Geoff Keighley has had a chance to interview 'Joakim Mogren'. What do we know (besides how incredibly fake it is)? Well, there'll be news at GDC.

While anyone can guess where this will end (ie: a new Metal Gear), the internet is rife with theories such as Mogren being played this man or that he's a CG tech demo created on Kojima new Fox Engine. There's nothing quite like a viral campaign with Hideo Kojima because you just don't know what's real.
