By mistake, it seems

Do you remember earlier in the year when Sony seemingly teased Metal Gear Rising 2 for the PlayStation 4? Hideo Kojima instantly debunked the rumours, but after years of ruses, we didn't believe him.

Metal Gear Rising to Serve Up a Second Dose of Revengeance on PS4?

Raiden you wait and see?

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may have been borderline incomprehensible at points – seriously, what the heck happened during that final boss fight? – but it was yet another outstanding action game from Japanese developer Platinum Games. And, during the Taipei Game Show overnight, Sony has hinted that a sequel to the...

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. Fortunately, developer Kojima Productions has hinted as part of its weekly webcast that

What if Hideo Kojima Was the Star of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes?

War changes

The best thing about games releasing on the PC is that modders instantly get to work tinkering with the source code. While this isn't our idea of entertainment, said part-time programmers do often come up with some nifty tweaks. And this Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes modification, which puts auteur Hideo Kojima in the lead role, is...

Did Hideo Kojima Just Announce the Release Date for Metal Gear Solid V?

Kept us waiting

Reporting on rumours surrounding Hideo Kojima's games is risky business. On the one hand, the talented provocateur is infamous for his sneaky teases, but on the other, the leaks are usually completely outlandish. For example, you may recall that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was originally announced as the project of a...

Why the Petrifying P.T. Is the Perfect Multiplayer Experience on PS4

Comfort in numbers

I absolutely adore horror movies. From the crackling campfires of the Friday the 13th franchise, to the lurid lunacy of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, there is something endlessly fascinating about the genre to me. But without a doubt, my favourite thing about a truly terrifying film is the power that it has to bring a...

Block party

It was only a matter of time before a crafty fan remade Hideo Kojima's harrowing P.T. demo in Minecraft, and, as usual, the enterprising community has outdone itself.

This particular author may be penning this article while proudly wearing a Pyramid Head t-shirt – we kid you not – but we’ll happily concede that there are much bigger Silent Hill fans in the world. One such person is Whitney Chavis, who’s just won the Guinness World Record for the biggest – and probably only – Silent...
