Is Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain on PS4 the Best Entry Yet?

Tactical espionage excellence

It's night in Afghanistan, as the soldier known as Big Boss surveys a Russian outpost from afar. Soldiers, searchlights, and machine gun emplacements pepper the settlement, making his mission to rescue a prisoner held there even more difficult. The question is: what approach should the legendary soldier take? Should...

Supersize us

Summer appears to be coming to a close, but in celebration of National Burger Day recently, we hope that there's one last BBQ on the agenda for you all.

Our Most Anticipated PlayStation Games of Holiday 2015

Pick 'n' mix

Madden NFL 16 is out, which means that the holiday rush is upon us. As such, we thought that it would be fun to collate our most anticipated titles from the coming months in one place. There was one rule, however – no one was allowed to include a title releasing prior to 7th September. Why? Because we didn't want a list that...

Final fantasy

It's been a reasonably long road for Dragon Age: Inquisition and all of its epic adventures, but the Inquisitor and his or her chums can't stick around forever.

Uncharted 4's MoCap Is Slowly but Surely Getting Wrapped

And cut

We'd assumed that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's motion capture would be long completed by now, but it seems that Naughty Dog's only just wrapped up work on two key characters: Sully and Elena. Neil Druckmann tweeted a week or so ago that all of Richard McGonagle and Emily Rose's scenes are now complete, with the likes of Nolan North...

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...

Over 90 Minutes of Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Soul PS4 Gameplay Blazes Across the Cosmos

The planets have aligned

Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Soul is looking like an all-round improvement over Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, which released on the PlayStation 3 back in 2013. More characters, a deeper combat system, and a slew of fresh story arcs should make this one to watch for fans of the source material. We get to see a good chunk of it...
