  • E3 2013 Kojima Productions Trots Out New Metal Gear Solid 5 Footage

    Certainly not horsing around

    Microsoft kicked off its E3 2013 press conference with a show stopper earlier today, revealing a brand new slice of gameplay from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. The footage opened with Snake riding through a desert, demonstrating the Fox Engine-powered title’s impressive graphical prowess. From...

  • E3 2013 Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Feasts on Flesh

    Features open world component

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 developer MercurySteam’s clearly been spending too much time with Hideo Kojima. This brand new video – revealed during Konami’s pre-recorded E3 press conference moments ago – is less a trailer and more an epic. The six minute showcase features a bit of everything: monologues,...

  • E3 2013 Kiefer Sutherland Will Voice Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5

    Hayter to say it

    As expected, Kiefer Sutherland will assume the role of Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Konami confirmed the news in its pre-recorded E3 extravaganza just moments ago, which is already kicking up some killer GIF images on NeoGAF. Is there nothing that those guys can’t tu

    Vita version also off the team sheet

    Despite switching to Kojima Productions’ proprietary FOX Engine technology, PES 2014 will not sprint onto the PlayStation 4. The title – which was teased earlier in the week – will instead focus its full attention on the PlayStation 3. Asked why Konami is skipping Sony’s latest system, the series’...




  • News Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Is Having the Worst Day

    Feelin' like a freight train

    Ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong? Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance understands you. Y'see, the swashbuckling spin-off is being marketed as the perfect antidote to a particularly bad run of luck. But is it as effective as listening to Limp Bizkit on loop? You'll be able to find out for yourself...

  • News Konami Augmenting Metal Gear Rising with Exclusive DLC

    Virtual reality

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may be steering Konami’s classic stealth series in a more action oriented direction, but it refuses to overlook the mainstays from the legendary franchise.

  • News Latest Metal Gear Rising Trailer Cuts Bosses Down to Size

    Sharper than a razor cut

    The antagonists of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance certainly seem to talk a good fight, but are they a match for Jack the Ripper in the ring? This brand new Japanese trailer focuses on four of the boss battles from the upcoming Platinum Games developed brawler, and it certainly lives up to its tagline, ‘Lightning Bolt...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Demo Serves Sweet Revengeance Next Week

    A cut above

    The long awaited demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will finally chop the PlayStation Network into tiny little pieces on 22nd January, developer Platinum Games has announced. It’s the same gameplay teaser that was originally included with copies of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection last year. You can read our thoughts on the...


  • News Metal Gear Rising's North American Box Art Is a Cut Above

    Chop, chop

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s international box art is great – but clearly publisher Konami was concerned that North American consumers wouldn't take to the close-up of protagonist Raiden’s robot face. As such, the company has produced a brand new image showing the aforementioned cyborg slicing an adversary in half. We suppose...

  • News Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Trailer Plots Its Vengeance

    Gorgeously gothic

    There’s some stunning hair animation in this Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 trailer. In it, protagonist Gabriel Belmont reminisces about what used to be. According to game director Dave Cox, the footage is all in-game. “There was no CGI,” he boasted on Twitter. The previous title offered a surprisingly solid take on the God...

  • News Yes, The Phantom Pain Is Almost Certainly Metal Gear Solid V

    Standing ovation

    During the early hours of this morning, we hypothesised that The Phantom Pain trailer debuted during the Spike VGAs probably had something to do with Metal Gear Solid. If nothing else, the trailer’s main character shared a striking resemblance to Snake, even down to scars and minor details. It turns out that there’s a lot more...

  • News Special Metal Gear Rising PS3 Adds a Splash of Blue

    Cut and take it

    We think it’s safe to say that custom console redesigns just don’t work as well with the PlayStation 3 Super Slim. Previous hardware bundles for Yakuza 3 and Ni No Kuni have prompted stunning new styles – making this Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance tie-in look bland by comparison. The console – due out on 21st February in...


  • News Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Looks Appropriately Macabre

    First look

    We’re not sure that we understand Konami these days. The publisher seems committed to completely mismanaging every one of its non-Metal Gear and Pro Evolution Soccer brands. Take the recently announced Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 as an example. Despite being the sequel to a surprisingly popular PS3 adventure, the publisher is...

    Cats and dogs

    Those of you that purchased Silent Hill: Downpour may be pleased to learn that the title is finally playable on the PlayStation 3.

  • Preview Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Goes for the Throat

    Come out swingin'

    There are three things we’ve come to realise while writing this preview for the latest Metal Gear outing from Platinum Games. First, we still can't type "Revengeance" into a text document without hating ourselves – it's not a word, it isn't cool, it sounds dumb. Second, we’ve learned that we’re okay with Konami releasing...

  • News Metal Gear Rising Demo Includes Free Copy of ZoE HD

    Couldn't resist

    We know it’s the oldest “joke” in the book, but we still remember when people purchased the original Zone of the Enders just to play the demo for Metal Gear Solid 2. As such, it’s funny that the visually re-mastered Zone of the Enders HD still can’t seem to escape from the shadow of Kojima Productions’ other more popular...

    Gloomy outlook

    Publisher Konami has forecast an 8th November release date for Silent Hill: Downpour in Japan. The title launched in Europe and North America earlier this year to a mixed critical reception. The game will release as a PlayStation 3 exclusive overseas, presumably due to the lack of interest in the Xbox 360 platform. Silent Hill:...

    Two different beasts

    Project Ogre and the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are two entirely different projects — and don't let Hideo Kojima hear you say otherwise.

  • News PES 2013 Scores Champions League Themed Metallic Cover


    Pre-orders of PES 2013 in North America will come with a UEFA Champions League metallic cover, publisher Konami has revealed.

    Sharp pain

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is not coming to PlayStation Vita because of hardware limitations, according to creative director Yuji Korekado.

    Absolutely unbelievable

    For as long as Trophies have existed, fans have pleaded for an updated version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
