Against my better judgement, I bought Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes earlier this year. This was after weeks of me slamming the game for basically being a paid, glorified demo. After playing it for several hours I’ll definitely agree that it’s worth the small price tag, something which hopefully won’t change for the upcoming PC launch. Which could, in fact, be happening soon.

That’s because, according to Konami,  it’s going to feature 21 Brazilian teams, and I can’t count that high. How many zeroes is that? Terrible jokes aside, Konami has announced it’s made a licencing deal with a number of Brazil’s clubs,  and will feature a number of licenced clubs, as well as a fair number of licenced players too.

It wasn't enough for Call of Duty: Ghosts to give you a canine companion, now Metal Gear Solid is doing it too. But this Diamond Dog is a well rounded character; no only do we get puppy love, we get the coolest thing ever - a wolf with an eye patch.

Hideo Kojima is an interesting character, most notably known for his successful Metal Gear series. It was recently revealed that he will be working on the new Silent Hill game. He’s also working on his next Metal Gear game, packed with all sorts of amazing box physics. That series appears to be getting some love elsewhere too.

Metal Gear has been an incredibly long running series. How long you ask? Well, 27 years , a year older than I am in fact! 1987 saw the release of the first game, and it has since gone on to spawn a bunch of box filled espionage sequels.  There was a fan remake of the original in the works. It has since been shut down by Konami.

Some people are inextricably linked to signature game franchises. You can’t imagine Gears Of War without Cliffy B, or Peter Molyneux without a game that promises you the stars and instead proceeds to punch your nuts into a concave shape. When it comes to Hideo Kojima, that man will forever be known as the architect of Metal Gear Solid. But he has worked on other games in the past. And for the future, he’ll be tackling Silent Hill. Can I get a hell yeah?

Mention football games around here, and folks immediately gravitate to the beautiful game as digitally constructed in the FIFA series. But PES? Man, those stories get more scorn than a business that specialises in getting rid of unwanted puppies. Last year’s PES 2014 however, hit a new benchmark for public hate, with a public Metacritic score right now of 4.5. That’s pretty low, and it might have something to do with the fact that the game was a buggy mess.

Last week Konami announced that this year’s edition of Pro Evolution Soccer would receive a nice little micotransaction addition. Naturally only a very few people took notice. That could be because only very few people still play PES after the terrible game they put out last year.

The latest iteration of Metal Gear Solid offers the most realistic and engaging open world experience - take on each aspect of the game however you see fit. Too good to be true? No! This game looks like it will actually deliver on its promises.

I’ve been to a number of trade shows, but I’ve yet to turn in a solid hat trick for my E3 and Gamescom trips by throwing the Tokyo Games Show into the mix. It’s the one show that I’d be both excited and terrified to travel. Excited because Japan! Terrified because I’m the kind of guy who gets hopelessly lost in countries where people speak a language that I understand.

Last year was Capcom’s least profitable year since 2006. The company’s been in financial doldrums for quite some time – but it looks like things are starting to pick up for the publisher. The company’s divulged its fiscal report ending March 31, 2014, and it’s actually making money.

Trophies, achievements and various other bits of digital showboating, gamers do not need this. But then again, I hold a trophy in Resogun that only 3% of other players possess so suck it. Whether you buy into them or not, Trophies are here to stay, with platinum being the creme de la creme of spending too much time playing a game. Just don’t expect MGS:Ground Zeroes to have any platinum trophies.

Pro Evolution Soccer has been in a bit of slump, failing to compete with FIFA’s endless budget. Konami seems to have realised that Pro Evo was on a downward spiral and is doing all it can to ensure that the next game in the beleaguered football sim will be better. The game, says Konami, is “ready for a comeback”
