Switch port being considered for Republique

Republique was a nice little indie stealth romp, created by several of the folks who worked on the Metal Gear Solid franchise. It had its share of highs and lows (an especially low point was its insane wait between episodes), but if yo...   read

Dishonored 2 kill videos remain amazing

I play Dishonored 2 unseen and murder-free, but for as much as I like to convince myself that's the "right" way to play, kicking fools off of roofs and doing trick grenade throws is some good shit.   read

Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience is out, not definitive

Look, Konami doesn't have a lot of options. It's a bad place to work, and its most creative talent was loyal for much longer than necessary. So we're getting Metal Gear Survive, to re-use some assets and try to make some money. Also releas...   read
