Kojima Being Kojima: "I'll Leave The Industry If I Mess Up Next Project"

We love Kojima, but sometimes he's a bit melodramatic

Then we suppose the man that dreamt up the Metal Gear Solid franchise would need to be a little big melodramatic, wouldn't they? Yeah, ok then. It makes sense. Still, with Kojima's attentions seemingly already turned to his next project, the legendary developer has Tweeted about the consequences of messing it up: “The next project will..

Get Hype: New "Next Generation" Silent Hill Game In The Works

The last Playstation 3 Silent Hill title, Homecoming, was a bit of a disappointment

But since, the PS2/PSP Silent Hill release, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, has corrected any wrong-doings.

Castlevania Man: Uncharted 2 Didn't "Redefine Action Games" (Erm, Nobody Said It Did?)

Well this is an odd one

We liked Uncharted 2: Among Thieves because it was the best game of 2009. The gameplay mechanics, stunning visuals and fabulous scripting, pacing and voice acting were all key components for its success. Many hail Uncharted 2 as one of the best games this generation - but for some reason, in an interview with PSM3 magazine, Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's producer has felt..
