Locations that will make your Walkman sing

Let it be known that there is only one universal truth on this earth, and that is that cassette tapes suck.

There's a Silent Hills Easter Egg in Metal Gear Solid 5

But of course

Once upon a time, before Konami imploded, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was working on Silent Hills in addition to The Phantom Pain. It makes sense, then, that there would be some references to the survival horror, and its PlayStation 4 playable teaser, in the open world espionage escapade. And our friend Arekkz Gaming has...

Metal Gear Solid V's Japanese Commercial Makes Less Sense Than a Hideo Kojima Game

!

What the hell is this? Sony's put out a commercial for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in Japan, and it's even more bizarre than the Batman: Arkham Knight one from earlier in the year. In the ad, a man and woman walk down a wedding aisle in cardboard boxes. This is obviously a play on Big Boss' infamous invisibility cloak. Later in the...
