Metal Gear Survive review: No Konami! Just… No!

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. So, here we are; Metal Gear Survive has been released into the world.

In Memoriam: Metal Gear Solid

I feel I speak for every Metal Gear Solid fan when I say this past weekend was an emotional roller coaster. Hearing David Hayter and Paul Eiding reprise their roles as Solid Snake and Colonel Campbell in those new Ford ads led to a huge mix of emotions. Euphoric nostalgia, hatred of seeing something so beloved used in a commercial context and another reminder that Hayter was replaced as Snake in M...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid cast reunites for new Ford car ads

  David Hayter may have been denied the opportunity to return in Metal Gear Solid V, but it seems he isn’t entirely done playing Solid Snake.

The campaign is made up of actors red...[Read More]

Fan remake of Metal Gear Solid in Unreal Engine 4 trailer drops

  Fan remakes of classic games have always had an iffy track record, with some going on to be commercially sold products such as Half-Life remake Black Mesa and others being hit with the ban hammer from the original rights holders, effectively destroying years of work. Today, the first proper trailer for an Unreal Engine 4 remake of Metal Gear Solid, titled Shadow Moses, dropped on YouTube, a...[Read More]

The pros & cons of Metal Gear without Kojima

  We all knew that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, my personal Game of 2015, would be the last real Metal Gear game after the now confirmed departure of creator Hideo Kojima from publisher Konami. Heck, it’ll probably be the last real game from Konami since, as well as ditching talent like Kojima, they also cancelled the promising new Silent Hills project, have been accused of tor...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid V wants to achieve world peace

  If I can draw your attention away from the beautiful apocalypse that is Fallout 4, or bring you forward in time from the galaxy far, far away, I’d like to remind you of a little game that came out not three months ago: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. You may have heard of it, as I do tend to bang on about it. And I mean really bang on about it. A LOT. And three months on, MGSV i...[Read More]

This Metal Gear Solid V FOB infiltrator is one cool customer

-Tom Heath Now that the game has been out for some six weeks, and I just completed the campaign the other day, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will soon start sneaking its way out of the gaming news cycle. There may come a day when the appeal of the game fails but, to paraphrase a certain king of Gondor, it is not this day. This day we have amazing YouTube clips. YouTube user LawRyuzaki uploa...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid V diary: Day 4, let’s talk the ending

-Tom Heath So I did it, I finally finished Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It took me some 60 hours, but I finally got through the campaign and have seen the connecting pieces of the Metal Gear saga. Nearly 20 years of playing the series and I finally know the whole story! Except that’s a lie, I really don’t, because good lord does Phantom Pain’s ending throw a spanner into...[Read More]

Metal Gear Online first impressions – beware the puppy trap…

-Tom Heath You may or may not realise that there was a second major online game launch this week. The first was the Star Wars Battlefront beta and everyone has been talking about it, myself included. But the second certainly deserves recognition, it being the multiplayer component of a game I have been very, VERY much enjoying. I am, of course, referring to Metal Gear Online. My experience with Me...[Read More]
