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.

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.

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.

Of course, the…

No Metal Gear Solid V Preloads, But Access A Little Early

Big Boss is a lot like Father Christmas: he sneaks into your home unseen; he has toys made by special helpers far away; and you want to slide down the stairs when you wake up after his visit so you can see as quickly a possible what he's brought you.

The Man Who Stares At Goat Photos: 40 Mins Of MGS V

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?

Feature: This is a sneaking sandbox

Metal Gear Solid V – Ground Zeroes review

Hideo Kojima is one of console-land's greatest champions. Over the past two decades Konami's Kojima-led team, eventually formed into Kojima Productions, has produced classic game after classic game – almost all of which are Metal Gear titles. Though not without critics, each MGS feels like a reinvention rather than a sequel, consistently innovative, stylish, and changeable. And with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the…
