Metal Gear Solid 4  



Metal Gear Online shuts down today

Metal Gear Online shuts down today photo



Despite the fact that our time with MGO was extended beyond what was originally planned, nothing lasts forever, and the time has finally come for Konami to pull the plug. The game was admittedly one of the hardest online shooters to get into on the market, but once you got the hang of it, it was a great way to spend your afternoon -- especially if you're a Metal Gear fan.

Fans had been clamoring for a multiplayer Metal Gear game for years, and MGO pretty much delivered (and built upon the short-lived Subsistence online mode). As a frame of reference, servers will close down today at 23:59 JST (Japan Standard time). It is currently 22:00 JST at the time of this writing, so if you have off work/school today, pop it in for one last go!

As someone who owns every Metal Gear Solid game ever released in the states, I can't help but shed a tear today, as our sweet prince heads towards his final slumber -- I'll have to wait until later today to pour some henny out for it.

Destructoid review: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Metal Gear Solid 4 has been a long-awaited title. We first heard word back in 2005, and drama has only built up from there. It's been touted by PS3 owners as a reason to own the system, and then claimed to be coming to the 36...more

Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Sword in the Darkness

Telltale seems to be getting into the swing of things with Game of Thrones, in more ways than one. For starters, it only took seven weeks since the last episode for this one to come out. If Telltale can keep up that pace, the...more

Review: Life is Strange: Out of Time

I just finished episode two of Life is Strange, and I've spiraled down a playlist of Ben Folds songs. Out of Time is Kate Marsh's story, but "Kate" is too cheerful; this tale isn't about daisies, dandelions, and butterfl...more

Review: Fossil Fighters: Frontier

I used to love dinosaurs. Growing up I watched The Land Before Time nearly daily, and I really wanted to be a paleontologist just like Alan Grant. If there was a video game with dinosaurs in it, I experienced it it,...more
