Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2 are now available on GOG

Solid Snake, Revolver Ocelot, and all their wacky mates return to PC today with re-releases of the first two Metal Gear Solid games popping up on GOG, after years hiding in boxes. The stealth series was clunky but ahead of its time in a lot of ways (and I'm as alarmed as anyone by how prescient their politics now seem) so I'm quite curious to…

Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 might be getting re-released on PC

Good news, Metal Gear fans. It looks like the first two Metal Gear Solid games could be making a return to PC, after new age classification ratings have appeared on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee website. Gematsu spotted the ratings for Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, and the Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra. If these games truly are…

Metal Gear pastiche Never Stop Sneakin’ infiltrates PC

It's easy to make fun of the Metal Gear series, and I say that as a huge fan of just about every game in the franchise, weird CCG-strategy spinoffs included. Few games do it as well as Never Stop Sneakin', the latest from Humble Hearts, developers of the well-liked platform hack n' slasher Dust: An Elysian Tail.Wrapped in a visual style almost perfectly replicating the…

Metal Gear Solid V prematurely celebrates nuclear disarmament

After two-and-a-half-years, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC has finally unlocked a hidden cutscene celebrating complete nuclear disarmament. This has been a semi-secret community challenge, waiting for players to destroy all nukes built by players in the game's 'Forward Operating Base' multiplayer invasion mode. However! In a very Metal Gear-y conspiracy theory twist, it seems that celebrations are premature, because Konami say…

Fulton Risen Blues: Metal Gear Survive

If the very mention of Metal Gear Survive [official site], an MGS V cooperative zombie survival spin-off, makes you fume and spit like a malfunctioning furnace, the fifteen minutes of in-game footage below might not convince you to reconsider. I'm willing to give it a chance though, partly because the wide open spaces of The Phantom Pain seem well-suited to spotting of distant hordes, but…

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Faults And Fixes

I woke up this morning in a bright new world, a world in which what may be Hideo Kojima's final Metal Gear game [official site] is available on PC. It still seems like an impossible dream, that a series that has only sporadically stealthed its way onto our machines should be here day one, the same time as the console launch, so I was expecting…

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom PC Review Code And News Of Microtransactions

If you pay any attention to the internet, you may have noticed some rather glowing write-ups of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site]. You may also have noticed some quibbling and equivocating about the appearance of microtransactions in the Forward Operating Base competitive multiplayer mode. Yes, that's a PvP mode called F.O.B. that may be fobbing people off with in-game purchases to…

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Videos Go Quiet-ly

I'm excited enough at this point for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that I'm willing to watch videos that are entirely in Japanese. Heck, in some ways I prefer it this way. These latest videos - a three minute trailer and a twenty-one minute playthrough - both come from the Tokyo Game Show, and not being in English means I don't have to…

Shock: Konami Still Won’t Confirm Metal Gear 5 On PC

SHOCKING DEVELOPMENTS. Metal Gear Solid 5 is an actual, factual thing, as revealed during Kojima Productions' GDC panel. But wait, that's not all. Are you ready to ratchet up the vein-searing voltage? OK, here goes: The Phantom Pain was just a promotional stunt! It was Metal Gear all along, just like no man, woman, child, infant, or single-celled organism could've surmised from painfully obvious evidence. Now,…
