What makes the Metal Gear Solid games so special to me is that Hideo Kojima knows that in darkness, there is light; in times of danger, there are moments of quiet. There’s no better example of how the series maintains balance than in Metal Gear Solid 3, whose most off-beat scene is as cathartic a moment as found in any emotional drama — even 14 years after its original November 2004 release. After our hero Naked Snake picks off a legendary sniper named The End, he continues on his way to the top of the Krasnogorje mountains. There’s only one way to ascend the cliffs: He must climb. But there’s no fancy, hardcore, death-defying spelunking sequence ahead, thank god. Snake just has to climb a ladder. And he climbs that ladder for almost three minutes.

The most recent Metal Gear spinoff, Metal Gear Survive,has been the subject of as much criticism as its predecessor, The Phantom Pain, has praise. Despite sales being low, Konami has been regularly implementing new updates and content to keep fans coming back to the game and to address some of the criticisms that befell it in the first place. One of the most recent updates was the co-op event titled Rescue Mission, and for the month of April, Konami is rolling out another update, this time calling back to a bygone era of the franchise. Beginning on April 10th, a new cooperative event titled The Encounter 1964 takes direct inspiration from one of the most popular Kojima games back in the day: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. While Metal Gear Survive itself was found to be a lackluster Metal Gear game and an okay survival game, fans who continue to enjoy it can expect a few cosmetic items based on its predecessor to become available in just a few short days.So far, … [Read more...] about Metal Gear Solid 3 Event Coming to Metal Gear Survive

It’s no secret that the upcoming Metal Gear Survive has been divisive in the Metal Gear Solid community. Its departure from series norms and the unceremonious departure of franchise creator Hideo Kojima have rubbed fans the wrong way, but Metal Gear Solid purists on PS4 may soon have some classic Metal Gear Solid experiences to look forward to. Eagle-eyed users on Reddit have noticed that game studio Armature has added the PlayStation 4 to the list of platforms its port of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is available on. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, for those unaware, collects Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker with remastered visuals and trophy support.
