Kojima Productions is not just a video game development company. The first project will be a game because that's what fans expect, but from there? "The focus is on digital content, so we could consider movies, animations, an...

If you're still salty over the cancellation of Silent Hills, you are not alone. Norman Reedus - who's likeness was used in the (terrifying) Silent Hills interactive teaser P.T. -- is still "super bummed" about the whole thing, but recently told IGN he "[has] faith" that he, producer Hideo Kojima and horror legend Guillermo del Toro "can do something else".

Well, damn. Now I regret spending those Mother Base coins on that sweet crocodile hat. If you haven't checked in with Metal Gear Online in a while, this headgear might be just the nudge you need. It's a cat named Ricky that you can place on your head. That'll be 300 MB Coins, thanks.

You can bring back a certain buddy in Metal Gear Solid V


But the process is repetitive
Nov 10
// Jordan Devore
As of a recent update in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it is now possible to bring back a beloved buddy who becomes unusable after you progress far enough into the story. But you're not going to like the method. In a game full of padding, there's now just a little bit more repetition. To be clear, you'll want to stop reading now if you're looking to avoid specifics. Spoilers.

Metal Gear myths
Oct 27

Early on in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you're sent on your way to find and rescue a familiar face, Kazuhira Miller, who is being held prisoner in Afghanistan. You're told he's vital to your quest for revenge, and that he has at most three days left to live. I should've known that wasn't an understatement. What a tragic cutscene.

Phantom Pain Hardcore mod ups Metal Gear Solid's difficulty

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is real accommodating. That's not to say there aren't bouts of frustrating mission failures and humiliating chicken hat offers, but all things considered (even without the time-slowing Reflex mode), it is way more forgiving than past Metal Gear and other stealth games. Almost too easy. This TTP Hardcore Mod does the following:
