Metal Gear Online Launches For Collector’s and Day One Edition Owners

In a recent press release, Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. announced the release of the highly anticipated competitive multiplayer mode for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online (MGO). Players faithful to the Metal Gear series will recognize that this is the third iteration of MGO and possibly the last. After the unfortunate falling out between Konami and developer Kojima Productions it’s unlikely that  another game of it’s kind will come out of Konami considering it’s ousting of series creator Hideo Kojima and his team.

The Final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Revealed

The Final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Revealed

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain marks the last time we’ll ever see a Metal Gear Solid game helmed by series creator Hideo Kojima.  Despite the now legendary falling out between Kojima and Konami, Kojima was at least allowed to make the final trailers himself. As such, the final trailer for The Phantom Pain is no exception to Kojima’s genius. It is a masterful piece of work that traverses the main line of Metal Gear Solid games (so essentially every game that is considered canon) which not only shows Big Boss’s progression from hero to villain, but even touches on the fate that Solid Snake narrowly avoided. But, in any case, I’ve rambled on far too long about the trailer, hit the jump to see it for yourself! Read On

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches concurrently on consoles and PC

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches concurrently on consoles and PC

In a recent press release, Konami has announced that the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is being moved from September 15th to September 1st. This release date coincides with the console release date, so for the first time ever, a Metal Gear Solid game is coming to all platforms at the same time. This doesn’t effect console gamers at all, but it’s indeed something that PC gamers are sure to be happy about.

Considering the controversy that’s been surrounding MGSV: TPP, it’s great to see that fans of the series can all play the game at launch. And the biggest perk for PC gamers is that The Phantom Pain’s prologue, Ground Zeroes, will be released on the same day for free.  Although, the one draw back with this moved release date for PC means that Metal Gear Online (the game’s multiplayer mode) will take a bit longer to actually launch. So when the game released in a few weeks, only the single player mode will be available. Hit the jump to check out the full press release!

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer may be Kojima’s last

E3 2015 hasn’t even officially begun and yet we’ve been treated with a slew of trailers for upcoming games. One trailer in particular caught my attention…Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a standout and it might also be the very last time we see a Metal Gear trailer with series creator Hideo Kojima still as lead on this legendary property. Past trailers have always captured the tone of the Metal Gear game being promoted and I can’t help but think that that is in part due to Kojima’s influence. This trailer remains consistent to his vision and does not disappoint. Hit the jump to check out the trailer!

Metal Gear Online returns in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

This past weekend brought a slew of gaming news that mainly focused around Sony and its flagship gaming console the Playstation. However, during the Video Game Awards, a trailer for Metal Gear Online (MGO) was shown. In this four minute trailer we get to see a team, lead by Big Boss/Punished Snake, infiltrate a base that’s guarded by an opposing team. Gameplay mirrors that of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which is indicative of the gameplay style that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have as well.

Metal Gear Online comes free of charge with MGSV: TPP much like how MGO appeared in MGS4. Personally, I’m super excited to take my sneaking skills online and see if I can take on the other Metal Gear fans in the world. Hit the jump to check out the full press release, or scroll to the bottom for the MGO trailer.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots lives on in digital form

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots lives on in digital form

In a recent press release sent out by Konami, it seems Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is being released via the Playstation Network. The Metal Gear Solid series is known for a convoluted story and cut scenes that run longer than the entirety of James Cameron’s Titanic. Guns of the Patriots is the fourth installment in the MGS series and currently the last game to feature series protagonist Solid Snake. This being Snake’s final adventure, and the ultimate conclusion to the Metal Gear saga, it’s awesome to see it return to the PS3 after its initial release back in June of 2008.

Although MGS4 isn’t my favorite game in the series, it is, in my opinion, exemplary for innovating the stealth genre. Hit the jump to read the full press release or scroll to the bottom for the short version.
