Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes' Achievement list has been leaked, and it's a curious one. Provided nothing gets shifted, the full 1,000 points are broken down between a mere 15 Achievements. Curious still, with the excepti...


 

Pirates -- the swashbuckling sort -- are pretty great. Videogames are pretty great too; the good ones, anyway. For some unfathomable reason, these two things don’t come together as frequently as I would like. Fortunatel...

I hadn't heard of Akimi Village prior to today, but it's instantly recognizable. You see, I played (and loved) A Kingdom for Keflings and its follow-up, A World of Keflings. Akimi Village is now available on the PlayStation ...


 

Outside of Tropico 3 and 4, NinjaBee's Keflings games are perhaps the best examples of how to bring strategy to the console's control schemes. There are plenty of PC games that allow you to build a sprawling economy with litt...
