Dogs with eyepatches! Horses being airlifted! Inappropriate combat wear! Strangeness abounds in this new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gallery.
Metal Gear Solid V
Here’s something I never thought I’d get to write about in PC Gamer. Metal Gear Solid 5 is coming to PC. First, prelude/enhanced demo Ground Zeroes will arrive on Steam, followed in 2015, hopefully simultaneously with the console releases, by the full game with the striking subtitle of The Phantom Pain.
Well I suppose you could drape the Metal Gear Collection 2014 over your rig, but if you were holding out hope for a software announcement during Hideo Kojima’s Tokyo Games Show appearance today then you’re out of luck. The Metal Gear Collection 2014 is not a retrospective collection of every Metal Gear game released, but instead a fancy new fashion line.
A five-minute look at the Mother Base multiplayer in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been revealed, demonstrating how Snake will sneak into other players' bases and steal their dudes.
I love Hideo Kojima. He understands games, and the way people play them, more than any other developer. He’s often accused of being a frustrated filmmaker using the medium to live out his directing fantasies, but only by people who haven’t played his games. His long, indulgent cutscenes are notorious, yes, but they’re only a small part of the whole, wonderful Kojima experience. He’s a game designer first and foremost, and his unique brand of magic and madness belongs on PC.
