The Genius Was Aiming For Cinema
Though he’s been working on video games since 1986, Hideo Kojima originally aspired to work in the film industry.

In the past, Kojima has adopted podcasts to talk about his work. Radioverse has been likened to Kojima’s previous radio-style podcast, “Hideraji,” by several fans. Several voice actors as well as other members of the production team discussed upcoming Metal Gear titles including Peace Walker, MGS4, and MGS5.
