Arkham Knight, Goat Simulator, Shaq-Fu 2 & The Last of Us: The Movie photo
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.

PSA: If you're looking forward to Ground Zeroes, don't watch The Phantom Pain's trailer

No new Metal Gear Solid V spoilers or details here, I promise. Earlier today, I put up my preview for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and in it, I wrote a lot about the game. I was careful to steer clear of any s...

Dying to hear all the dirt but don't want to take the time to read my full preview of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Well, if you're not a fan of verbose explanations, I can't imagine you're much of a Metal Gear Solid fan. In any case, here's a quick rundown of some classic Metal Gear elements that you won't be finding in the latest release.

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.

Hey, did you see those Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes track jackets and sneakers that Puma's making? They're pretty cool, but a franchise with such awesome character and mechanical designs really deserves more creative merchandising. Here are a few ideas.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform comparison
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

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!

MGS V: Ground Zeroes is 720p on XB1, 1080p on PS4
by Chris Carter

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is arriving on a number of different platforms, and differences are bound to happen.  Because of that fact, Konami has provided a series of screenshots and information to "help you find the right version."

Here's the biggest bit of info -- the PS4 version will sport 1080p resolution with 60fps, and the Xbox One will run at 720p also at 60fps. On the 360 and PS3, they'll both run at 720p and 30fps. You can also head over to the website itself and look at some direct comparison shots.

So yeah, there you have it. Thankfully, Konami is being pretty upfront with the differences, however they came about.

Kojima teases the PlayArts Kai Quiet figure

Hideo Kojima teased a couple of images of the upcoming PlayArts Kai Quiet figure for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. These are "in progress" shots, and, well, it's exactly what you probably imagined what the Quiet figure was going to look like. It's a nice lookalike, but it doesn't compare to the Quiet cosplay of course.

PC Port Report: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
by Patrick Hancock

Hey everyone! There’s a Platinum Games game out on PC! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Well, I guess since this is their first foray into the world of PC ports, it’s probably a good idea to check and see how well they’ve done.

Other companies haven’t done so well in their PC debut, largely due to a complete misunderstanding of the market and lack of continued support. Luckily, Konami and Platinum Games know the value in patches, and have addressed some of the issues in Metal Gear Rising.
