Got a PC? Then you've got a computer!
The personal computer ("PC," to those in the know) is always good for a clutch of unexpected surprises and in 2015 it was no different. There heavy hitters are there, from Metal Gear to The Witcher. But there is also an unexp...

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.

This Metal Gear Solid cosplay of Raiden is as real as it gets


That helmet
Oct 28
// Chris Carter
Famed cosplayer Masazi visited TGS recently with a really badass Raiden costume, but it was tough to get a good look at it. Now you can see the entire outfit in video form, hosted and directed by the Rescue the Princess YouTube channel. The attention to detail is insane, as the mask actually opens up on multiple levels. Hats off to Masazi for one of her best costumes yet.

Metal Gear myths
Oct 27
// Jordan Devore
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.
