Cut Your Way Through This Metal Gear Rising Trailer

"Oh my car"

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance protagonist Raiden knows exactly what to do with a blade. In this brand new gameplay trailer, the cyborg ninja is shown chopping up an abandoned vehicle like a boiled vegetable. Our thoughts go out to the unfortunate owner of the carefully carved car. The Platinum Games developed slasher is due out early...

Zone of the Enders HD Trailer Will Make You Wish You Didn't Have Ears

Awful racket

Look, we like Asian music. Kara’s Step was one of our favourite jams of 2011, and not just because we particularly enjoyed the video. But this new Zone of the Enders HD Collection trailer is a bit too saccharine for our tastes. We've embedded the footage below, so feel free to traumatise your eardrums if you dare. Oh, and before you...

Metal Gear Solid 4 Finally Gets Trophy Support

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. The slick stealth title launched months before the rewards system was patched into PS3, and subsequently never supported the digital trinkets. We’d actually given up hope on the game ever getting...

Not content with the handful of other projects he’s already announced, Hideo Kojima has now purportedly confirmed the existence of Metal Gear Solid 5.

Metal Gear Online Hides Away Forever Today

Snake out

In case you’d forgotten (we had), Metal Gear Online is set to shut down its servers forever today. The optional online component was shipped alongside Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in 2008, and has maintained a relatively engaged fanbase ever since. Our fondest memory of the mode was desperately trying to figure out how to...

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Trailer Is a Cut Above

Zan datsu

We probably don’t need to convince you to watch this Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer, but we’re going to anyway. Towards the end of the video, protagonist Raiden runs up a wall, leaps into the air, and cuts a helicopter into a dozen pieces. Yep. Revengeance still has a long way to go before it proves its worth to hardcore Metal...

Terrifying

Want to know something scary? No, it doesn’t involve Pyramid Head – in fact, it’s much scarier. See, Konami has confirmed that the recently released Silent Hill HD Collection was ported from incomplete code. Yeah, that’s pretty messed up, isn’t it? Senior producer Tomm Hulett revealed in an interview with 1UP that the Japanese...

Lords of Shadow 2?

It’s probably not a coincidence that Konami’s launched a new splash page featuring distinctly Castlevania: Lords of Shadow artwork just days after rumours about its sequel emerged. The website – which shows little more than a door – teases that the “Dragon Returns” on 31st May. That just so happens to be the same day...
