Ripping my post from the MGS4 Screens thread; just in case some people are purposely avoiding the discussion.

I'll be in the city later running some errands but I think a sneaking mission to verify this is definitely in order.

It's been verified.



NYC-GAFFERS. ASSEMBLE.

I was originally going to title it: "Hideo stops making ZOE3 long enough to greet gamers", but I didn't want to get banned over ZOE again -_-

I request any trust worthy GAFFERS let me send them money via Pay Pal and get me a signed copy. Jesus CHRIST I'm jealous of NYC gamers right about now.

I think you have to buy a copy to attend, its a small price if you want your MGS collection signed.

Would it be in bad form to bring some of my MGS collection to be signed? Oh and how can some of us help people that cannot make it to NYC?

Do not forget cab fare and hotel costs. I'm lucky to have some peeps in New York, so I have a place to crash if I go.

I think it is a tour so, he might be in a different city at a different time and date.

Fuck hotel fare, I will sleep with the hobos. Can you still cross the border with only your proof of citizenship or do you now need a valid passport to get into the States? I think they changed it to the latter this year right? If so then fuck.
