I really enjoyed Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for what it was, and despite many people calling it a "short" game, I've clocked around 30 hours so far -- far more than the vast majority of regular releases. Part of ...
Backed by breezy Metal Gear theme
This is a silly little video uploaded today to the official Metal Gear Solid YouTube page. Hideo Kojima made a surprise appearance at a Micromania game store in Paris to celebrate the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Ze...
Grab all nine and unlock a new mission
Both Sony and Microsoft have their own platform-exclusive missions for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and you'll have to do a bit of legwork to unlock them. Basically, you'll need to grab all nine XOF patches hidden thro...
Deja Vu and Jamais Vu
As you may have heard, both Sony (PS3, PS4) and Microsoft (Xbox 360, Xbox One) have their own piece of exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This isn't a pre-order bonus mind you -- it's built into every copy of the game.
Naturally this can lead to a choice between the two, so let's take a look at what you're getting.
Kept you not waiting
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes can be as long as you want it to be. But it can also be pretty short. How short? Well as Eurogamer demonstrated, you can beat the entire story in just 10 minutes.
You can spend as little as one hour with it, or a lot more
As you may have gleaned from my review, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not for everyone. It only features one area, very little story, and it's only a glimpse of what's to come in Phantom Pain.
But that doesn't mean it isn't a ton of fun to play, and there's plenty to do outside of the relatively short story mission.
An exciting demo, but still a demo
Ever since I randomly picked up a conspicuous looking Metal Gear NES catridge in 1990, I've been enjoying Snake's adventures. I've collected every Metal Gear game released in the US, and while I'm busy waiting for t...
I've become so comfortably platinumb
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes won't have a platinum trophy. Hopefully that doesn't bother you lot that planned to infinitely replay the short, replayable game. Kojima explained on Twitter:
The reason GZ doesn't have Plat...

The cover art for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is so serious. What's the matter, Snake? It's like you're about to lose an arm or something. Oh ... right.
On the other hand, the reversible cover art looks so hot. The artwor...
Spoiler alert: It sold a lot
Metal Gear is one of the most successful and popular videogame franchises to date, but when Metal Gear Solid was being developed, neither Konami nor Hideo Kojima had high hopes for it. Surprisingly enough, that turn...
That's what Kojima thinks
Solid Snake, one of two third-party characters from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, isn't likely to make an encore in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Smash Bros. At least, that's according to his creator.
As reported by Go...
'If 100 people play the same mission, there will be 100 different stories to tell'
One of the biggest talking points surrounding the impending launch of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the game's relatively short length. Hideo Kojima explains why that won't be a problem in this video.
The crux of...
And scrapped it when it wasn't on par with Rockstar's effort
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto III is well-known as a landmark title that exerted significant influence over the videogame industry with regard to modern design. One notable developer that was motivated by GTA III was ...
Today on Fart's 'N' Crafts, I'm drawing Godzilla and Big Boss fighting! Or hanging out. Or something. This suggestion comes by way of Nicholas Layne on YouTube, thanks Nick!

Also: Street Fighter's Vega is in The Phantom Pain. Sort of.

Thinking outside "the box"
Dying to hear all the dirt but don't want to take the time to read my full preview of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Well, if you're not a fan of verbose explanations, I can't imagine you're much of a Metal Gear Solid fan. In any case, here's a quick rundown of some classic Metal Gear elements that you won't be finding in the latest release.
Snake is driving Jeep! How can this be?!
Considering that the series just celebrated its 25th anniversary, it might seem a little odd that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is only the fifth game in the series. However, if you’re counting Peace Walker, it...
Do you think fashion can bloom on the battlefield?
Hey, did you see those Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes track jackets and sneakers that Puma's making? They're pretty cool, but a franchise with such awesome character and mechanical designs really deserves more creative merchandising. Here are a few ideas.
Data unlocks explained
Konami has shared some more info in regards to the link between Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain. It looks like if you buy GZ "early on" you'll get DLC to use in Phantom Pain at launch, which grant...
Seems like to do so he might leave video games entirely

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
Hideo Kojima teased a couple of images of the upcoming PlayArts Kai Quiet figure for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. These are "in progress" shots, and, well, it's exactly what you probably imagined what the Quiet figure was going to look like.
It's a nice lookalike, but it doesn't compare to the Quiet cosplay of course.
A lesson in listening
