    Kojima still makes me chuckle, that scene in MGS2 when you become naked Radian.

    I have the HD collection but have yet to play Peacewalker.

    If you've still got a PS3 there was a free app called the Metal Gear Solid database on the PS store. I'm not sure if it's still there but if it is and you're interested in catching up on the back story, it's all there..

    I wonder if he will remake 4 for next gen. I vaguely recall something about it.

    In spite of how many people I know who are from across the pond and use this expression, I have never really understood it.

    Taking the piss = making fun of people, getting a rise out of them, yanking their chain, pulling their leg, ripping the $#@!, etc..

    In the case of Kojima, he mocked the game player in that particular scene because he made us very self-aware we were playing a game.

    ..or it can mean taking advantage of someone. Say your boss gives you an hour for lunch and you take and hour and a half? You're taking the piss out of him! Then you'd be labelled a piss taker!

    I'm shocked at how well the lighting is on the previous generation systems. But the game is gorgeous.

    Nothing literal about this one, you will be pleased to hear. It's usually said that the phrase derives from an older one, piss-proud, which refers to having an erection when waking up in the morning, which is usually attributed to a full bladder (proud here being an obvious pun on its senses of something raised or projecting and of something in which one may take satisfaction).

    It's first recorded, as so many such indecorous expressions are, in Francis Grose's A Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue; in the second edition of 1788 he wrote: "Piss-proud, having a false erection. That old fellow thought he had an erection, but his -- was only piss-proud; said of any old fellow who marries a young wife".

    This developed into a figurative sense of somebody who had an exaggerated idea of his own importance. So to take the piss is to deflate somebody, to disabuse them of their mistaken belief that they are special. It's not recorded before the beginning of the twentieth century.

    Make a mickey out of them? Same as taking the Micky.

    Take the Mickey out of
    This phrase is not new; the full phrase is "to take the Mickey (out of someone)"
    Britons have been using this figure of speech for decades, if not centuries. A "Mickey" of course, is a "Mick": a pejorative, racist term for an Irishman (so nicknamed because so many Irish surnames begin with Mc- or Mac-) It is a common stereotype, in both the UK and USA, that Irish men have volatile tempers, like to brawl, and make good boxers. So, To "take the Mickey (out of someone)" means to take the fight, the vigor, the gravity, the self-importance out of them, by mocking them, usually in a very subtle way.

    Do tell, or at least give us the link. I'm skeptical of anything we are ever told about Japanese game engines, they often amount to a lot of bluster (see Crystal tools by SE).
