The first strand type soundtrack
We’re listing the ten best Soundtracks of the Decade. These are the ten PlayStation scores released over the past decade that we believe left the biggest impression on our sonic palettes. Whether it’s Journey's Grammy nominated masterpiece or Destiny’s 8 movement symphony, these are the soundtracks that hit the...
The end of the year brings with it another in a countless line of year-end lists, this time focusing on the incredible music that graced the PlayStation this year. As with all years, a few amazing soundtracks were left on the cutting room floor – Kingdom Hearts III, Ghost Giant, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – but what we wound up...
Hideo Kojima is one of the gaming industry's most well known figures. Revered for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series (and Death Stranding, of course), the designer/director has attracted a large following, and now enjoys an almost celebrity status. These days, Kojima goes mad for social media, and posting regularly on sites like...
Do you remember last year when Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima toured the world with PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny searching for an engine to run Death Stranding on? The auteur's voyage spanned America and Europe, stopping at every single one of Sony's first-party studios, including Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Media Molecule. But...
And it is very very weird
Hideo Kojima unveiled his new project at Sony's E3 press conference today, and it was delightfully bizarre. There is very little we actually know about the game - which is called Death Stranding - but here's our basic rundown of the trailer: Naked Norman Reedus is attached to a naked baby. The baby dissapears, but leaves a...
For the players
Buddies Geoff Keighley and Hideo Kojima got together and had a friendly chat today to discuss his feelings over the major shifts in his life over the past year, where he's been in his worldwide travels visiting game studios, and what he has planned for his new studio. However, Keighley asked two questions in particular that caught...
Vehicles to surpass metal gear
There's the odd ad every now and then where video game publishers will unite with companies to advertise something that never fails to surprise. Among many examples, Konami is no stranger to this with the Metal Gear franchise by promoting Doritos and a Japanese energy drink. Nintendo has even teamed up with...
Name that tune
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a phenomenal game – which is just as well, as it could end up being the final entry in the series to benefit from the input of creator Hideo Kojima, who seems to be parting ways with Konami at the end of the year. However, as amazing as the game undoubtedly is, it is missing a vital...
Kojima is dead, long live Kojima
Over here at Push Square Towers, sometimes even we are baffled at some of the potential news that slips under our radar for long periods of time, and you can count this article as a demonstration of that in action. Gamespot has relayed a YouTube video by timesplitter88 that showcases an obscure side objective that...
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a fairly substantial showing at E3 2015, but the hype train stops for nobody, so Konami has now released an equally extensive new trailer for the title. Cleverly, the clip sees Snake attempting the same
The phantom menace
As promised, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's new story trailer debuted on Geoff Keighley's Youtube E3 live show today. The clip features a suitably battle-scared Snake, as well as a weird and wonderful roster of villains, trudging through a series of increasingly gorgeous landscapes and vistas. As with all thing
Kept us waiting
Reporting on rumours surrounding Hideo Kojima's games is risky business. On the one hand, the talented provocateur is infamous for his sneaky teases, but on the other, the leaks are usually completely outlandish. For example, you may recall that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was originally announced as the project of a...
As promised, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's online mode received its debut trailer at The Game Awards today. The clip itself is something to behold, showing off what appears to be a suitably intense and exciting multiplayer extravaganza in which you and your friends infiltrate hostile bases together. Of course,

The always embarrassing VGAs are gone for now, but that doesn't mean that Geoff Keighley fuelled extravaganzas are a thing of the past. Indeed, the showman is hosting his own event, The Game Awards, which will air on 5th December next week. Spruiking the show on Twitter, Keighley revealed that one of this year's patented 'world...
It was only a matter of time before a crafty fan remade Hideo Kojima's harrowing P.T. demo in Minecraft, and, as usual, the enterprising community has outdone itself. All of your favourite moments are represented here: the famous looping hallway, the embarrassingly dirty bathroom, and, of course, the lingering sense that downloading this...
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a short game. Or at least, that's what some people would have you believe. Others would argue that the tactical title provides hours upon hours of replay value, and a robust set of challenges to complete. Whatever your stance, we're pretty sure that no one will be complaining about the title's...
Do you want to know how Hideo Kojima made Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes look so good? Are you eager to learn how every follicle of Snake's facial fleece was fashioned to a fine finesse? Is all of this alliteration making you physically ill? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you're in for a treat, as Konami has...
But totally rad
One of the most intriguing new pieces of tech in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is Snake's handy dandy iDroid. The technological toy replaces some of the functions of the traditional codec, while also adding in a few nifty new abilities. It's a pretty unsubtle jab at the insanely popular iPhone, but we'll forgive it, if only...
The price of the PlayStation 4 version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been reduced on the European PlayStation Store, representing the title's second official price cut. To be clear, the boxed copy is still £29.99, however the digital version will now set you back £24.99. On first glance, it may seem that this change has come from...
Snake? Snake! Snaaaaake!?!
If our Australian readers were looking forward to spending their weekend sneaking about underneath a cardboard box, they'll be sorely disappointed, as the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has reportedly been delayed for a week in their home nation. The title was originally planned to launch on 20th March, but...
Thinking outside the box
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is quietly creeping up on us, so Sony has put together this video interview with franchise director Hideo Kojima, in which he explains some of the title's exciting new features. One such element that the auteur is keen to emphasise is the ability to access information such as Snake's map and...
Man-tis game looks good
It's still a little hard to believe that we'll be getting a next-gen Metal Gear Solid game so early in the PlayStation 4's lifecycle. Some have compared the purportedly paltry prologue to the Tanker mission from the second game in the franchise, but that certainly isn't stopping u
Don't be a Hayter
You may have noticed that Metal Gear Solid series director Hideo Kojima has recently been talking up an exclusive partnership between Sony and Konami that will apparently facilitate an entire menagerie of stealthy promotional tie-ins. We've already seen the
De-cypher this one
Hideo Kojima, the director of the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid franchise, may just be the king of social media. The auteur is clearly getting bored now that he doesn't get to play dress up anymore, so he's decided to bombar
There was a huge kerfuffle recently when Game Informer revealed in a preview that upcoming stealth game Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes only took its staff around two hours to complete. Everyone was just a little bit miffed, and understandably so, as the purportedly paltry prologue to next year's
