Metal Gear Online's PC beta is already over, officially launches today

Last we heard, Metal Gear Online's PC beta was pulled due to an exploit last week, but in the middle of researching when a fix would happen, I found out the thing already launched! According to a post on Steam from the developers, MGO ...

What are the chances that this unofficial Metal Gear Solid remake won't get shut down?

I hate to be a downer, because I'm all for seeing Metal Gear Solid rendered all pretty-like in Unreal Engine 4. But when you make an unofficial remake of something that doesn't belong to you, and the owner is Konami of all companies, a ceas...

 
Nic's best of the year
It's like the middle of January and you've read about five thousand GOTY lists at this point, so let's get to brass tacks. There were some great games released last year, but which ones were the best? I have no idea. Sorry,...   read

Fun with graph
There are exactly 100 professional reviews culled on the Bloodborne Metacritic page. Of that 100, 99 are "positive" and 1 is "mixed," a lowly 7/10, which I'd suggest is still positive. Oh, so nobody dislikes this game? When I...   read

Konami gives Hideo Kojima an entire hour of outdoor time (Fauxclusive)

Consoles lead Metal Gear Solid V's race to nuclear disarmament

Kojima shows how he made Metal Gear Solid V's 'Nuclear' trailer
