Adopt a wolf cub in Metal Gear Solid V and he'll grow up to be badass

I was blown away by the extended Metal Gear Solid V gameplay demo from TGS. I knew the game would be huge and comprehensive, but it just keeps surprising me with how much content there seems to be. And we've only seen the tip...

Horseback riding and takedowns abound in this 21-minute MGSV demo
by Brittany Vincent

Previously we had a glimpse of Quiet's escapades with the full version of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain teaser posted earlier this week. Now feast your eyes on this 21-minute gameplay demo straight from TGS 2014.

In the video, Quiet and Snake are infiltrating an outpost in what looks to be a jungle biome rather than the desert, and we finally get to see more of Quiet in action. I don't know about you, but I was waiting for an abundance of gameplay like this, and it's looking solid. Get it? I crack me up.

That Metal Gear Collection 2014 is actually a clothing line

Quiet's disappearing act is awesome in the latest Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer

Last week we got a glimpse of Quiet's powers thanks to the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain teaser, and now the entire trailer out of TGS 2014 is available for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, it's in Japanese of course -- it's still plenty of unadulterated Metal Gear awesome, though. Hey, Quiet! Why you lookin' so down, homegirl? GamesHQMedia [YouTube]

Metal Gear fan remake is cancelled, developers release trailer narrated by David Hayter

Both Metal Gear Solid V entries are coming to Steam photo
Both Metal Gear Solid V entries are coming to Steam
by Chris Carter

[Update: Konami has confirmed this news live at its gamescom conference. No release dates were given.]

For years, Metal Gear Solid fans have been asking director Hideo Kojima if and Konami would bring the games to PC. Traditionally the series has been a mostly console-only affair, but with Metal Gear Rising we saw that maybe the publisher was changing its mind in regards to the platform.

Well, if a listing on the official UK Konami site is to be believed, both Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain will be coming to Steam. When the former is arriving isn't quite known, but the latter will likely launch alongside of the console versions, if not slightly after.

This is great news for PC fans who have always wanted to give the series a go. Ground Zeroes is also perfect Steam sale material if you're on the fence.

Very Quick Video Tips: A guide to all the Ground Zeroes XOF patches
by Chris Carter

Both Sony and Microsoft have their own platform-exclusive missions for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and you'll have to do a bit of legwork to unlock them. Basically, you'll need to grab all nine XOF patches hidden throughout the main mission, then complete the main objectives.

Here in this video I'll show you the location of every patch, and pause for a second to also show it on the iDroid map. If you're wondering how to get the second patch at the start of the video, just go prone, and press in the left stick to roll from side to side constantly until it falls out.

XOF patch progress only saves at checkpoints -- so if you get a game over, you may need to recollect a few.

So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare?
by Chris Carter

As you may have heard, both Sony (PS3, PS4) and Microsoft (Xbox 360, Xbox One) have their own piece of exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This isn't a pre-order bonus mind you -- it's built into every copy of the game.

Naturally this can lead to a choice between the two, so let's take a look at what you're getting.

As you may have gleaned from my review, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not for everyone. It only features one area, very little story, and it's only a glimpse of what's to come in Phantom Pain.

But that doesn't mean it isn't a ton of fun to play, and there's plenty to do outside of the relatively short story mission.

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes photo
Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
by Chris Carter

Ever since I randomly picked up a conspicuous looking Metal Gear NES catridge in 1990, I've been enjoying Snake's adventures. I've collected every Metal Gear game released in the US, and while I'm busy waiting for the next entry, I'm keeping up with the encyclopedic amount of data that fills the series' lore -- which is a task all on its own.

And wait we shall, as Phantom Pain is still completely up in the air regarding its release date, leaving Kojima and crew to satiate our needs with Ground Zeroes. But even as a fan, there are a few shortcomings that make me hesitant to call Zeroes a "must have" franchise entry, despite how fun it might be.

While in Japan to preview Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I was taken on a tour of the Kojima Productions offices. In theory, there's a certain magic to getting to go behind the scenes of where videogames get made. In reality, videogames are usually made in regular offices, with desks and cubicles, and because of this, studio tours can sometimes be a bit dry.

Thankfully, that wasn't the case here.

Arkham Knight, Goat Simulator, Shaq-Fu 2 & The Last of Us: The Movie
by Max Scoville

Sweet Christmas do we have some great news about video games today!

Let’s see… My previews for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes went up, a new Batman game was announced by Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Knight, Watch Dogs finally has a release date, and there’s a new Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer. On a less fun note, Mad Catz announced a partnership with Ouya, and on a downright depressing note, Disney Interactive has laid off 700 employees.

However, there’s a bunch of crazy weird news: Shaq-Fu is (hopefully) getting a sequel, Goat Simulator is going to be an actual game, and Akiba’s Trip 2, a Japanese game about punching vampires till their clothes come off, will actually be released in the west. Finally, a couple pieces of movie news: there’s feature film in the works based on The Last of Us, which seems sort of redundant to me, but that new Transformers movie involves Optimus Prime living in Mark Wahlberg’s barn, which is even more ridiculous than robot dinosaurs.

Breaking New Ground: Metal Gear Solid V's Tactical approach to Open World photo
Breaking New Ground: Metal Gear Solid V's Tactical approach to Open World
by Max Scoville

Considering that the series just celebrated its 25th anniversary, it might seem a little odd that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is only the fifth game in the series. However, if you’re counting Peace Walker, it’s the sixth, and the seventh if you include Portable Ops, too. If you're counting every game with the words "Metal Gear" in the title, it's something like the thirteenth game in the series.

Plenty of other game franchises would've retired or rebooted by now (and plenty have) but somehow, this one manages to consistently reinvent itself, all the while staying within the confines of the same universe. Ground Zeroes makes some of the most drastic changes the series has seen in over a decade, while still managing to feel familiar.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is one of the three major new releases in March. We just found out the Xbox One version is in 720p, while the PlayStation 4 version will be in 1080p.

So what does that mean when the different versions are in motion? This, this is what it means. Konami went ahead and made this comparison video, so fight. Fight for your platforms, and make your enemies bleed because your version is probably better than the other version because videogames!
