Props to Despera in the OT thread for pointing this out...
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=253

So this Doctor is going to do a real-life head transplant. But that's not the weirdest part...
(OT thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1026394)

EDIT:
The procedure is also named.... "HEAVEN"
(Thanks to Spannicus)

Coincidence? or Kojima? You decide.

The likelihood here is that Kojima modeled the Doctor off of an actor (as was noted earlier) and that actor happens to look eerily similar to this head transplant Doctor.

Needless to say, the head transplant Doctor is not doing himself any favors by proposing an idea that is as crazy as Kojima's plots, but still.

Reel it back in.

It's been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it's just one person. For a start, it's good."


Procedure for the transplant named HEAVEN.

Person getting the transplant is a CG artist and a game development supervisor. https://www.xing.com/profile/Val_Spiridonov

Head transplant in MGS V?




Sergio is doing a talk in Cyprus which is presumably where the hospital in MGS V is. It's a location in the game anyway according to PC files.

Has a scientific article named The “Gemini” spinal cord fusion protocol: Reloaded http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/?lin...m_uid=24244881

Sergio submitted this article on GEMINI just two days after MGS V was revealed. http://www.surgicalneurologyint.com/...ulast=Canavero

TED Limassol is an anagram for Solid Metals

The talk's partner is a gaming site who has an office in Cyprus: https://wargaming.com/en/about/our-locations/nicosia/

Transplant patient's facebook cover pic:





http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/archive...p/t-44363.html

This is presumably the report: http://thejns.org/doi/pdf/10.3171/foc.1999.6.5.2 Titled Painful supernumerary phantom arm following motor cortex
stimulation for central poststroke pain.

Has a book: http://www.amazon.com/Head-Transplan...der_1503243222

Some of these chapter titles sound familiar.


Also what kind of doctor has photoshoots like this?

People acting like Kojima doesn't have access to unreleased scientific and medical documents. There are no coincidences in metal gear.

I remember reading an in-depth piece about his project a long while ago. Can't believe I never made this connection.

Hey, I just posted it for entertainment. We all love to entertain the idea that Kojima is a viral marketing mastermind.
