Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive Edition Spotted Online For the Second Time

What do you think, Boss?

Apparently, publisher's don't announce complete editions any more - they just wait until every online retailer under the sun has leaked it for them.

Worth the Mané

After FIFA announced that apparent "football team" Manchester United would be the official partners of FIFA 17, football fans far and wide have been in justified disgust that such a team would be allowed to be associated with the FIFA brand. Well look no further, because PES 2017 has announced an

We need intel

What do we have here then, Boss? Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive Ex has popped up on Amazon.co.uk, which, we assume, is some sort of Game of the Year edition.

Vehicles to surpass metal gear

There's the odd ad every now and then where video game publishers will unite with companies to advertise something that never fails to surprise.

Oh Dear, PES 2016's Euro 2016 Update Only Has 15 Licensed Teams

Bad news for all you Romaniacs

After Konami's faffing around with some rather important transfer updates for PES 2016 last year, it promised that all owners would get the upcoming Euro 2016 DLC for free, instead of having to buy it. Still, our friends at Eurogamer have reported that Konami has announced that only 15 out of the 24 teams in Euro...

Keighley: Konami Blocked Kojima from Collecting His Award

Gulp

The drunk Jade Raymond gaffe aside, Geoff Keighley's seemingly reckless swipe at Konami was the best moment of The Game Awards 2015. Shortly after Kiefer Sutherland took to the stage to collect an award on the behalf of Hideo Kojima, the Canadian host announced that lawyers had prevented the video game veteran from attending the show.

PES 2016 Finally Gets Its Roster Update Next Month

Booked for time-wasting

Back when we reviewed PES 2016 in September, we said that it was an excellent football game - its only real weaknesses being its unlicensed teams and the fact that its roster was based on last season's squads. For example, that money-grabbing Sterling was still disgracing Liverpool's teamsheet. A roster update, titled Data...

Ever Wonder Why the Classic Metal Gear Solid Theme Isn't in the Phantom Pain?

Name that tune

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a phenomenal game – which is just as well, as it could end up being the final entry in the series to benefit from the input of creator Hideo Kojima, who seems to be parting ways with Konami at the end of the year. However, as amazing as the game undoubtedly is, it is missing a vital...
