Here we are at the start of a new week. That’s right. It’s a Monday. I’m sure you’ve been working hard all day, so you’ve probably fallen behind everything in the gaming world, but that’s why we’ve got these roundups for you. Today we found out that Hideo Kojima wanted Solid Snake to have pet rats in Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy 9 Remake might just be in the works, and players discovered cut content in Elden Ring that would have let you piss people off. We have plenty more in store, so read on for the rest.
Final Fantasy 9 Remake Could Be In The Works
After the wonderful Final Fantasy 7 Remake, who wouldn’t want Square Enix to give Final Fantasy 9 the same treatment? Well, the final word is that such a game might just be on the horizon. In case you missed it last year, the GeForce Now database leak revealed several Square Enix titles that ended up being confirmed as upcoming releases. The developer played down the leak at the time, calling some of the titles purely “speculative,” but later had to backtrack on the matter. So does this mean we could get Final Fantasy 9 Remake? Perhaps.
Sony and the parent company behind Lego, Kirkbi, have just invested a total of $2 billion in Epic Games. “As we reimagine the future of entertainment and gaming, we need partners who share our vision.

More metaverse.
Hideo Kojima’s original vision for Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid was apparently that he would have pet rats. “The rats were a way to add reality to the game and create the atmosphere within the base,” Kojima said shortly after the game’s release. leftovers that attract rats.” The designer went on to say that he wanted to “assign names to individual rats and these rats could then be raised as pets. Alaska is a very cold place and when Snake first enters the base, rats are the first life forms he encounters, so I think they’re a very important element in the game.”
Elden Ring Players Restore Cut Content That Lets You Get People Drunk
Dataminers Lance McDonald and Sekiro Dubi discovered cut content in Elden Ring that allegedly got people drunk. There was apparently a monk by the name of Reeling Rico who gave players an item called the Crystal Ball of St. Trina before sending them to fetch a substance known as Dream Mist from sleeping creatures. After collecting enough, players could return to Reeling Rico, in which case they’ll receive bottles of Dreambrew, an alcoholic drink that lets you “uncover someone’s deepest, darkest secrets.”
Riot Games draws ire from workers after vaccine and mask mandates lifted
Riot Games just lifted its mask and vaccine mandates. The company also called its employees back to the office. Unsurprisingly given the circumstances, the workers took it rather badly, prompting many to speak out against the policy change. “I’m angry,” said a company employee. “It’s a stupid, unnecessary policy that’s being conducted at the wrong time and being run with no real guarantee of our safety. We’re just playing Russian roulette with the health of the Rioters.
