I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over ...

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a 25GB download


Also, bloody Quiet tits
Jul 23
// Steven Hansen
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain popped up on the Japanese PlayStation Store and weighs in at 25.1GB on PS4. On PS3, it is a svelte 11.7GB. There numbers can vary by region (the addition of localization files, like those recently scrounged out of ICO) and platform (it's coming to PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360), but here's a decent ballpark. Also, new poster below.

What happens when you have nothing to show at E3, delay Dead Island 2, and then fire the developer of Dead Island 2? HD remake! HD remake! South African retailer Loot.co.za listed (now removed) Dead Island: Definitive Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It would certainly make sense while Deep Silver figures out how to get Dead Island 2 and silly ass Homefront into 2016. via @lifelower

Celebrate Journey on PS4 with a pretty, limited run statue


$150
Jul 21
// Steven Hansen
Journey looks great on PS4. This statue does, too. But Journey on PS4 is free if you own it on PS3 ($15 otherwise), which I do, while this statue is $150, so I'm going to celebrate Journey on PS4 by maybe playing it on PS4 at some point. You are free to celebrate by buying the statue, or really whatever form of worship you prefer. Light a candle, maybe.

This baby is bad at sharing. The beagle felt bad about taking its toy, so it apologized by giving it many new ones, including a DualShock 3. It also might be trying to suffocate the baby, I'm not sure. Dogs are great.
