Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain review

Metal Gear Solid V isn’t actually the 5th game in the Metal Gear series thanks to games such as Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes, however it is the latest in the franchise starring Big Boss, or Punished “Venom” Snake as he’s known here. After Solid, Liquid and Naked etc it’s really hard not to smirk and think that Hideo Kojima really does like jokes about one’s manhood. Anyway, set 9 years after the events in Ground Zeroes, you awaken from a coma and head into Afghanistan and Africa to start a new private military company and raise your own army...

Nintendo 3DS Metal Gear Solid Special Edition

Not happy with just having a boring old green Nintendo 3DS? Well, if like some footballers in the spotlight at the moment, colour may be an issue to you, you’ll be happy to know that a special edition of the device will be released along with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D in the form of an embossed snakeskin effect. There’s no word yet if it will be released in all territories apart from Japan but the big question we’re thinking is why would you want it? Unless of course you’re a cowboy or you’re a very fashion conscious female...

Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3DS trailer

We’ve just got hold of a trailer for Metal Gear Solid 3DS from Konami and it’s got us very excited. The game is a remake of the PS2’s fantastic Snake Eater and really shows off what the 3DS is capable of when it comes to eye-popping 3D visuals. Although you can’t see it in full 3D here it stills seems a bit 3D in a strange way. The trailer begins with Snake crawling through the jungle and encountering a snake and an alligator. He then gets chased by a swarm of 3D bees and jumps off a bridge only to...

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker review

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the Metal Gear Solid series. The first game was the reason I bought a PlayStation, MGS2 conned me with the demo and then I wasn’t too happy when you only played the first missions as Snake, Snake Eater I thoroughly enjoyed and MGS4 was epic but felt more like a very long movie rather than a game. And so to Peace Walker on the PSP. The second game to come out on the handheld, this one tells the story of Big Boss trying to keep the peace in Costa Rica after the events...
