Kojima cover story in OPM confirms Metal Gear Solid 5
by Conrad Zimmerman

The latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine is going to hit stands in the UK with all the force of a nuclear warhead delivered from any point on the globe using some kind of bi-pedal tank. Their cover story is none other than Hideo Kojima, who gives an interview containing thoughts on Metal Gear Solid: Rising as well as the future of the series in Metal Gear Solid 5.

They also did a photoshoot which, for some inexplicable reason, I really want to see. I don't know when it was that we celebritized our game developers to the point where I am interested in a gallery of photos of a guy who sits behind a keyboard all day, but we're there, people. It's like the nerdy kids who wanted to be rock stars are seeing their dreams come true.

Did I mention there's a Metal Gear Solid 5 thing going on? Yeah. I'm not even going to begin to speculate on that. Magazine hits stands November 29, but OPM UK will be dripping out information from the interview between then and now. Internet panties, twist thyself!

Historic issue 65 cover features Hideo Kojima [OPM UK]

GameFan chief says the industry is a sad state of affairs

If you're like me, you grew up reading Diehard GameFan. The magazine was as close as we had to a Destructoid back in the 1990's; independent, opinionated, and more focused on the love of games than getting rich. What a l...

Game Informer's BioShock Infinite covers are so class

I'm not sure I'll ever get into the BioShock series, and I've long since given up on Game Informer, but I'll be damned if the cover art for the October issue isn't a treat to look at! Unveiled at PAX, the issue sports three d...

GameFan might be a magazine you'd like

Print is dead? So they say, but I'm not buying it. What I will be buying, however, is an issue of GameFan if my local stores aren't too ignorant to not stock it. GameFan is what used to be Play, a magazine devoted far more to...
