A spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars that more than lives up to its legacy.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Kojima Says 20% Of Metal Gear Solid V Will Feature Supernatural Elements

Posted on Friday, March 29 @ 12:11:27 PST by

Speaking with GT.TV's Geoff Keighley, Hideo Kojima expressed the desire to reinvent the Metal Gear Solid franchise in the upcoming fifth, mainline installment. Following the reveal during Kojima Production's Fox Engine panel at GDC, Kojima said the Roman numeral in MGSV's title is representative of this revolution in the franchise.

"Since [MGS4] the west has really caught up and in many ways we're threatened by games from the west," Kojima said via translator. "We really want to reinvent ourselves with this game so shifting from '5' to 'V' represents our will for victory."

Part of that transformation will come in the form of science fiction, horror, and supernatural elements, as seen in Phantom Pain footage. "There will be a balance... but [the game] will be primarily 'real' but that said, it does take place roughly around 1984 so there will be influences from that era," Kojima said. "If I were to give a percentage for the balance, maybe 80% real and 20% scifi or supernatural elements."

Kojima backpedaled when asked if that 20% would change up gameplay, but I'm hoping it offers the development team opportunities to experiment and mess with players a la Psycho Mantis. Are you still excited knowing that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are actually two parts of the same game?
