It’s incredible that after the storm Konami kicked up a few weeks ago, we still have no idea what happening to Hideo Kojima after the release of Metal Gear Solid V. The famed designer is set to work on Silent Hills, a sequel that has brought in the mind of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro. But Kojima might have already had his involvement from the project signalled already, with a change to the game’s official website.

I'm still reeling from the whole hornet's nest the internet kicked up over the apparent departure of Hideo Kojima from Konami late yesterday. We're still trying to figure out if the famed Metal Gear creator is employed at the publishing house , and Konami isn't exactly giving straight answers to easy questions.

Metal Gear Solid creator, game design visionary and eternal trickster Hideo Kojima looks like he's on his way out of Konami for good. Only a few weeks ago Kojima stated (again) that Metal Gear Solid V would be his final in the series, but I doubt anyone expected it to mean a complete abandonment of the publisher that's housed him and Kojima Productions for so many years. Turns out, there's far more to the story than that.

It’s a date, baby. With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain committed to a release date, and with yours truly having clearly forgotten about the dreaded Metal Gear Solid 2 days of waiting, it looks like the next chapter in Snake’s life is just about ready to go. Of course, the game will be available in more than just the standard Vanilla Snake edition. Although I’m guessing that the special Collector’s Edition might cost an arm and a leg.

They say he came from parts unknown, dragging hell behind him and a fistful of coins that could sway the hearts of any Greek corner cafe owner. He was a man with no name, a pilgrim that whistled Dixie and tamed any arcade cabinet that crossed his path. But the stranger met his match one day, when he ran afoul of Sunset Riders…

Suikoden was one of my favorite franchises. Unfortunately, many people in the West have no idea what I'm talking about. Well, that used to be the case - with Konami's game getting a release on the PSN, it's getting a new life, and hopefully a revival.

A while back, I sold my PS3. I was done, and ready to move on. Now I hear that Suikoden II has been released on that console, as well as the PS Vita. And I feel like an amazingly massive tosspot over this missed opportunity.

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.
