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

In case you missed it, the Metal Gear series has always had a pretty strong anti-nuclear message, and it's never been more literal than in Metal Gear Solid V, the multiplayer "FOB" component of which allows players to develop and ...

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

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 c...

Konami touts new Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain DLC, gives us no details

[Update: Yep, it was the DLC that already was announced. Apparently Microsoft pulled the trigger early on the add-ons.] Konami just sent over the weirdest press release, presumably to get more people to spend money on Metal Gear Solid V: Th...

Good god this Metal Gear Solid V cosplay is great

Although I don't post many cosplay updates, I'm a big proponent of the craft. I love going to conventions and seeing people play their favorite characters, as the community seems to really, truly enjoy it. The enthusiasm is infectious. This...

Sleuths find signs of more missing missions in Metal Gear Solid V

Which works better? "The Phantom Game," wherein all of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has a phantom writhing in its codes, a Ghost in the Machine, and also "game" and "pain" are like almost near rhymes; or, the much more obvious, "The...

Metal Gear Solid V infinity boobs: More proof women are hard to animate

Kojima dedicated a lot of resources to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's jiggly physics, probably because of how many cutscene shots linger on Quiet's rack. And while Kojima Productions has done better than "women are too hard to anim...

Metal Gear Online
I've spent a considerable amount of time this week with Metal Gear Online, and despite my initial positive impressions, I'm having some big-picture issues. In short, I'm not sure how long this train is going to be chugging along, especially when you take Konami's recent history into account.   read

Metal Gear Online
Kojima's departure from Konami has left me all sorts of worried for the future of Metal Gear Solid -- a series that I've enjoyed ever since I laid eyes on the first NES game over 20 years ago. For now though his legacy i...   read

Metal Gear Online PS4 release trolled by ancient PSN update procedures

One of the chief problems I have with the PS4 is the way the storefront (and subsequently, the release of most games) works. Not only has the latest patch mucked up the UI for the PS Store to include more clicks to get what you want (why is...

Modding Ocelot into Quiet's scenes in Metal Gear Solid V is hilarious

Minor spoilers but not really. So, Quiet is in Metal Gear Solid V, just like the cutscenes and footage from two years ago foretold. As it turns out, modding in Ocelot to take the place of her character model produces some amazing results, w...

Metal Gear Solid V's Diamond Dog has realistic carnal needs

I wish I could afford every Nendoroid. They're so wonderfully made and span so many beloved franchises, I'd buy nearly all of them. That includes this figure for Venom Snake, which was unveiled by Kojima recently. This is a final sampl...
