Metal Gear Solid has a history of providing revealing outfits for many female characters, but on his English Twitter, world-renowned game director Hideo Kojima has admitted that these outfits are created with the purpose of encouraging cosplay, to advertise the game, and selling merchandise.
Let’s be honest; the reveal of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in March was undermined just a bit by the fact that everyone had already made the connection between The Phantom Pain and MGS back in December. For this reason, it’s vital that the game is presented in a positive light at E3. Well, we’ve watched the trailer, and Kojima doesn’t need to worry.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s Snake will be voiced by actor Kiefer Sutherland, Konami announced in their pre-E3 press conference today.
Konami has announced the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
Exclusive to the PlayStation 3, the collection will include Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. If that wasn’t enough, it will also include two digital graphic novels from illustrator Ashley Wood.
Konami has released a trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance, developed by Platinum Games, which showcases the spectacular boss fights we should expect when slashing our way through enemies in February. Included are Mr. My-limbs-aren’t-attached-so-have-fun-slicing-me and Miss. I’ve-got-like-8-arms!
Last week, the PlayStation Vita received an update that finally adds support for PSone games on the fledgling handheld. PS3 Attitude is helpfully on-hand with a comprehensive guide to everything you could ever want to know about PSone classics, and how to get the most out of this long-awaited feature on the PS Vita.
Hideo Kojima revealed a new title in the Metal Gear series, Ground Zeroes, during a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event. We assume it made its glorious debut by flying out from a battered cardboard box.
It will be open-world and feature Big Boss rather than Solid Snake if the first promotional artwork is anything to go by.
This week, PS3 Attitude has been discussing PSN trophies, or more specifically, trophies that must have spawned from the depths of hell. Everyone loves trophies, but occasionally a challenge will come along that is so ridiculously hard and/or time consuming, you have to think to yourself; what’s the point? These are our picks for 5 of the most evil trophies on PSN.
Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.
However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
It’s once again time for PS3 Attitude to take a flippant look at the world of gaming. This week’s trope is impossibly obese bosses, all of whom could definitely stand to lose a few pounds; or a few stones; or, in one case, a few million tons. We had a fair amount of fat – sorry, big-boned – characters to choose from, but these are the five that made it onto our virtual weighing scales.
Well, this is a surprise! In an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Hideo Kojima has confirmed that, after four years, a trophy patch is in the works for PS3-exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
You’ve played them, you’ve enjoyed them, you love them, you tirelessly defend them when anyone so much as makes an unpleasant face at the very mention of them. Now you can play Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater as well as the original two MSX games again on the go.
The gold standard of Japanese games in the palm of your hand.
Japan has a new trailer for PS Vita’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection which is due for release this summer. We don’t speak Japanese – we know, we must try harder – but it’s fairly self-explanatory.
Another year over. A new one just begun.
2011 was a real corker for the PlayStation 3. And for PS3 Attitude too. We got up to all sorts of shenanigans over the last twelve months, and some of us still have the bruises to prove it.
But this isn’t going to be one of those lame retrospective list articles that counts down our favourite moments from the last year. Oh no. This is 2012. This is about what comes next.
So strap yourselves in and get ready for the ride.
At this year’s E3, 46,800 industry professionals, journalists, retailers and analysts arrived in LA to experience the videogame industry’s biggest event of the year, and with over 200 exhibitors promoting their latest games and hardware, this year was arguably the biggest ever.
We cannot offer you a complete guide to E3 2011 (that would require writing a book), but we can give you this neat list featuring 10 thing that caught our attention during this year’s show. We had great games and impressive hardware on show and a lot of stuff happening in-between. Enjoy.
Konami hosted its pre-e3 show in which the company revealed its plans for E3 and beyond. One thing that continued to pop up throughout the 55 minute presentation was classic Konami franchises getting remade into HD collections, specifically Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Zone of the Enders. Get ready for a blast from the past…
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
“Japan is at least five years behind [Western developers]” and “everyone’s making awful games.” That’s the bleak view Keiji Inafune has of the Japanese games industry right now. Capcom’s head of global research and development even includes his own company in his criticism, “Capcom is barely keeping up.”
We’re back with everyone’s favourite money saving article on the whole of the Internet.
