Anyone Still Playing Metal Gear Online? There's A New Patch...

.. Well, kudos to Konami for supporting their game we suppose. We'd forgotten Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots even had an online component, but here's a new patch for that very mode. The update's able to detect "fraudulent" connections which may slow the game down. Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone's actually still playing Metal Gear Online. Konami patch notes:..

Hideo Kojima Teases "Devil Project", We're Clueless

Hideo Kojima, ever the tease, has started Tweeting about something he's deeming the "devil project"

We've absolutely no idea what it is, but we've included a series of messages from the Metal Gear mastermind for your convenience: “Have to give priority to another line’s scenario etc., so now I cannot work on ‘the devil project’ and ‘writing’.” “Worked on my ‘devil project’ a bit after..

Ever Fancied Designing Your Very Own Tombstone?

Probably not, right

You have? Uh-huh. That's a bit weird. Anyway. Konami wants to see your very best "spine chilling sculpture" as part of a Silent Hill: Downpour contest on Facebook. The winning tombstone will get rendered into the final game. Which is pretty awesome. Konami will pick its six favourite sculptures on February 10th and open the competition up to public voting. Good luck if..

The Rain Falls In Silent Hill: Downpour This Autumn

Consider us cautiously optimistic for Silent Hill: Downpour

We're big fans of the franchise and horror games in general, but unfortunately the series has taken a turn for rubbish in recent years. Silent Hill: Downpour appears to be heading in the right direction though. We think. Maybe. Hopefully. (Please be good.) Konami's officially confirmed the game this morning, tagging an autumn release on..

Kojima Productions Staffing Up For "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series"

What does the "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series" entail anyway? Is it a PlayStation 4 title, or is it just a franchise reboot on current platforms? We've no idea, but a series of job listings on Konami's website mention the phrase

Silent Hill 8 Subtitled Downpour, First Details Released

It's been a while since we got word on Vatra Games' upcoming entry into the Silent Hill franchise

The game was announced and trailered at last year's E3, but Konami's been notably quiet about the horror title since then. Thankfully GameInformer's broken the silence, announcing the game's official name: Silent Hill: Downpour. Apparently the game's set on the outskirts of Silent Hill and includes a..

Given its status as one of the best games in the PlayStation 3's library, many fans have been clamouring for a trophy update ever since Sony announced the rewards system.

First Impressions: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay

From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..
