Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Release Date Is Edging Ever Closer

Boxed in

Seeing as Hideo Kojima's big Christmas announcement turned out to be a chicken cap rather than a release date, we're still none the wiser regarding Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 deploy date.

Why You Shouldn't Write Off PS4 Racer DriveClub

Back on track

In many ways, Evolution Studios got lucky. DriveClub's launch was an unmitigated disaster, but the developer was able to quietly solve many of the title's issues while a much bigger storm gathered around games like Assassin's Creed Unity.
