Word of a film adaption of Metal Gear Solid has been circulating since 2006. Almost a decade later, and nothing concrete has really come of it yet. That's more or less par for the course when it comes to movies based on videogames -- all talk, no walk.

However, Sony might be taking some baby steps toward actual production. As reported by Deadline, the production company is in talks with Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct Metal Gear Solid. Vogt-Roberts is best known for directing the well-received indie flick The Kings of Summer.

While this isn't quite the "jump out of your seat with joy" update that fans might want, it's better than nothing. It also isn't something that anyone should hinge their hopes upon. There's still plenty of wiggle room for things to go south.

In time for calcio (football) madness, PES 2015 gets a trailer

Update: Welp, that video was pulled due to licensing issues. I'll take this moment to root very hard for Belgium to knock out the American team.  I'm a bit checked out after Italy's rare, unceremonious early exit, but we...more

Metal Gear Solid V's E3 showing minus the hour of fluff

Konami posted its behind closed doors E3 demo that was the basis for my E3 preview and broken cynicism. But it did so as part of a two hour long thing with interviews and cuts away from the action. This is the straight, uninterrupted gameplay. And it's worth watching again, isn't it? more
