Unfortunately, it's in Japanese of course -- it's still plenty of unadulterated Metal Gear awesome, though. Hey, Quiet! Why you lookin' so down, homegirl? GamesHQMedia [YouTube] read

I'm all by himself because Max went to Asia to pull the teeth out of impoverished children. I don't order old trading cards from the internet, but I did replay Metal Gear Rising, start re-watching my favorite TV show, and I'm bracing myself for angry Nintendo fans. read feature

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.

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. read
What's in Ground Zeroes? photo
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. read feature
