Abe's Oddysee: New n' Tasty developer Just Add Water has written an open letter to Hideo Kojima. The Metal Gear masterbrain recently revealed he was interested in looking for a studio to remake Metal Gear Solid, and the Oddworld team has stepped up to the plate.

"We read with great excitement on VG247 that you were looking for a studio to work with to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake using the Fox Engine, that your team has been hard at work creating," wrote the studio on its blog. "We at Just Add Water feel ideally positioned to do the remake justice for several reasons."

The team cites its experience with remaking Oddworld games, the fact it employs a number of huge fans, and the all-important reason -- it really, really wants to do it. 

Kojima has since claimed he's not looking for a studio to redo MGS, but I still feel it's incredibly cool to have a developer openly volunteer like that. When you get a display of genuine love for the industry and its games like that, it's worth celebrating. Just Add Water, you're alright!

Solid Snake has never been this adorable. Well, I don't know if the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini, qualifies as adorable, but this particular figure cuts it for me. The Solid Snake Revol Mini figure comes packing excellent d...more

The Memory Card .95: The jeep chase

Summer is in full swing. And with summer comes a slew of blockbuster movies filled with ridiculous, over-the-top action sequences. Action sequences that impress with their combination of chaotic choreography and unbelievable ...more

la carte: Love thy characters and love their lovers

I joked about the illegitimacy -- not canon! -- of dumb-haired, blonde/blond Robin in Super Smash Bros. recently. I did not ignite a waifu war, but there was talk about the "best," most efficient ways to play Awakening. Shack...more

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more
