Solid Steed: MGSV Does Horse Armour DLC, Plus Tux

Not a horse-tux, sadly. Nor is the cheesy avatar of an open source operating system becoming a playable MGS character. Big Boss gets the tux, D-horse gets armour, and playable women soldiers get [sigh]. This, then, is the first DLC for the mostly excellent Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site].

Six Things MGSV: The Phantom Pain Could Do Better

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] may be the best stealth-action game ever made, but it's not flawless. The game's massive scope, and the surprising amount of detail in each interaction within that massive playpen, is impressive - however, that scope is precisely why certain aspects feel like they have something missing. Consider the following, then, as an exploration of The Phantom…

Flirty Dogs And Barking Men: MGS V Model Swaps

Feature: It's oh so quiet

Disquiet: Metal Gear Solid V – The Phantom Pain

It's been days since I wanted to talk about anything other than Metal Gear Solid [official site]. My sister is probably sick of this. We're very close but live far apart so we tend to speak almost every day, not so much about our lives as about the things that distract us from our lives. She had no interest in Metal Gear Solid, but eventually…

Metal Gear Solid V – The Phantom Pain review

Like Snake with the open expanse of Soviet-occupied Afghanistan stretching out before him, we've got a lot of ground to cover. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] is a massive game, both in terms of the systems that drive it and the number of plot threads it feels obligated to weave together. This breadth is the game's triumph, as well as its…

Metal Gear Solid V’s Birthday Surprise

When we talk of 'spoilers', we usually mean plot twists - e.g. you're actually your own uncle's uncle's nephew sent back in time to cut your child's finger off.

Mate, go play Frog Fractions yourself.Metal Gear Solid games hold many surprises big and…

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…

Memories & Murderbots: Metal Gear Solid V Final Trailer

If you want to go in cold when Metal Gear Solid V [official site] lands next week, you probably shouldn't watch this brand new 'launch' trailer. In fact, you probably shouldn't even go anywhere near the discussion around it because as soon as I clicked through to Konami's YouTube page, I saw speculation and rumours that have now wormed into my brain. Of course, the…

MGS V: The Phantom Pain Release Creeps Forward

Who ever knows what Konami are up to? Between the reported fallout with Metal Gear maestro Hideo Kojima and new tales of Kafkaesque working conditions, maybe even Konami don't know.

We've seen some of the Kojimaisms awaiting us in this Autumn's Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site], but what about the bits where you actually do stuff instead of endure/enjoy sustained psychic assault by cutscene?
