Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow DLC Sadly Delayed Until March

Having played the brilliant Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow as one of our Christmas catch-up games (yes, even we have those), we were rather looking forward to MercurySteam's continuation of the narrative with the previously announced "Reverie" DLC

Unfortunately the additional single-player content has been pushed back until March as per an announcement on the game's Facebook page. No word on whether..

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:..

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

The job-listings are plenty, seeking planners, level designers, scripters and more. Kojima Productions are currently working on Metal Gear Solid: Rising for..

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..

Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-dated trophies

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.
