The always embarrassing VGAs are gone for now, but that doesn't mean that Geoff Keighley fuelled extravaganzas are a thing of the past. Indeed, the showman is hosting his own event, The Game Awards, which will air on 5th December next week. Spruiking the show on Twitter, Keighley revealed that one of this year's patented 'world...

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

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

Comfort in numbers

I absolutely adore horror movies.

This Minecraft Remake of P.T. is Almost as Scary as The Original

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. All of your favourite moments are represented here: the famous looping hallway, the embarrassingly dirty bathroom, and, of course, the lingering sense that downloading this...

Wait, Metal Gear Solid V and Silent Hills Are Set in the Same Universe?

See the sequels cross over

Why does Hideo Kojima have to be so darn awesome all of the time? With the auteur taking the reins of the upcoming Silent Hills, it’s no real surprise to see the reboot crossing streams with the hotly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – but we didn’t expect it to happen quite so soon. In the video...

This Woman Likes Silent Hill Way More Than You Do

No argument here

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...

Silent Hills' Latest Easter Egg Is Quite Literally Out of This World

Twilight zone

Incredibly, people are still pulling secrets out of last week’s Silent Hills playable teaser. Considering that the demo was built by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, it’s perhaps no real surprise – but this latest Easter egg maintains a long running tradition. If you’ve played a Silent Hill game before, you’ll know that...

Is Horror Sequel Silent Hills a PS4 Exclusive?

Scream in silence

The whole Rise of the Tomb Raider mess appears to have caused some confusion in the console exclusives space, so let us teach you a very valuable lesson: if Sony doesn’t scream ‘Only on PlayStation’ after revealing a project, then it’s going to end up elsewhere. Firms may use doublespeak to confuse their message – we...

Raiden people use their brains?

Kojima Productions, the Konami subsidiary responsible for the Metal Gear Solid series, has proudly flaunted the photorealistic elements of its internally developed FOX Engine over the past few years – but it’s received its biggest vote of confidence yet courtesy of a cock up during a news broadcast.

Will David Hayter Star in PS4's Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain After All?

Solid theory

Metal Gear Solid overlord Hideo Kojima loves a good ruse – and we reckon that he’s up to his old tricks again. David Hayter, otherwise known as the voice of Solid Snake and Big Boss, may have been rather publicly ‘replaced’ by 24 star Kiefer Sutherland in his familiar role, but is this just another Phantom Pain-esque troll from...
