Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V complete edition coming this October

Come tomorrow it will have been a whole year since Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launched, which also means it will have been exactly a year since I made this stupid face: Well, to celebrate its anniversary, Konami have announced Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience. Launching on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 11, the new edition collects both The Phantom Pain along with...[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. Hayter revealed on his Twitter overnight that the cast of 1998’s Metal Gear Solid (AKA the best game of all time) are back, featuring in the new “Overdubs” ad campaign for Ford Motor Company. The campaign is made up of actors red...[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]

Tom’s top three games of 2015

  2015 was a pretty good year for games. So good, in fact, that I predicted it would be really hard to choose my own personal Game of the Year. And boy was it. I haven’t agonised over a decision like this in anything other than a Telltale game in a long time. Honourable mentions: But before we get into that, here are some shout outs to the games that were great, but honestly just not qu...[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]

5 of the best dogs in video games

– Charlie Braithwaite As we all know, dogs are the greatest things in the universe. I’ve previously discussed how much I hate it when they are enemies in games, but now it’s time to honour the pups who have been our digital companions. These aren’t ranked in any particular order, all dogs are amazing, so it would be unfair to judge them (except my dog IRL who is the best ever). Fable II: Dog...[Read More]

Metal Gear Solid V diary: Day 3

– Tom Heath When we last spoke, or more I wrote words and you read them, I was the overlord of an army of kinky troopers and about to go toe-to-toe with a fabled sniper. Well, I did just that and a lot more so brace yourself, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. My name is Tom Heath and this is my Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain diary… If you missed them, here are parts 1 and parts 2. Ri...[Read More]

The MGS V glitch that turns you into a war criminal

– Charlie Braithwaite We’ve been talking a lot about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And so we should be, it has a lot going for it, and despite some questionable character designs, it’s one of the best games released in 2015 so far. One particular thing we love about MGS V is the freedom you have when tackling missions. Want to take a few hours to sneak around and take eve...[Read More]
