[Video] This is what Monster Hunter looks like in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

You may have already seen our article on the MGS: Peace Walker/Monster Hunter collaboration that simply looks awesome.  Well if looking at some screens wasn’t enough to sell you on the concept or left you wanting for more, this new trailer showcasing the mash-up of franchises should please you.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker gets a Monster Hunter mode

We know that the Metal Gear Solid franchise can be a bit wacky. And no, I’m not referring to the sometimes convoluted storylines involving A.I. programs or the various supernatural elements. I’m more so referring the silly nature the series can take with stuff like the famous Snake vs. Monkey mode in MGS3.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow comes forth from the shadows with new screenshots

Since being unveiled at E3 2009 Konami’s relaunch of the Castlevania franchise, dubbed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, has been under the keen eye of many.  Not only does Lords of Shadow have to compete against the powerhouse that is God of War 3 but it has to live up to the Castlevania lineage which is deep in tradition and mythology.

Today for some inexplicable reason (though I’m not complaining), Konami has released an insane amount of new gameplay screens, concept art and renders for the game. 

Interesting new attacks in Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

 

From the Weird and Weirder files comes a piece of information about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker of such bewilderment upon reading, operation of heavy machinery is ill advised. This is what Konami had to say yesterday:

The Metal Gear Solid movie is officially dead for the time being. YAY!!!

The planets must’ve aligned as the live-action film based on Metal Gear Solid looks to be not happening anytime soon.  Last we heard in the saga of the MGS movie director Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil) expressed some interest in tackling Solid Snake’s big screen debut. Perhaps that’s why Konami seemingly saved the day for gamers by putting the kibosh on the project.

Fist of the North Star and MGS: Peace Walker join the crowded early 2010 release window

At this point I’m starting to wonder if Q1 is the new holiday season when it comes to game releases. While we did have a nice amount of games drop so far such as Modern Warfare 2 and Assassin’s Creed 2 it seems that the majority of the big games many are looking forward to are coming out between January and March.  What once was typically a quiet release window is now jam packed with debuts of new franchises such as Bayonetta and Darksiders and existing heavy hitting franchises like God of War 3 and Final Fantasy XIII.

The Silent Hill movie is getting a sequel

While most films based on video games are usually trash one of the few that wasn't a complete mess was Silent Hill.  Combining different story elements with art design faithful to the games made the film pretty solid despite a few story issues such as a subplot that felt a bit shoehorned in and an ending that seemed a bit rushed and really damn depressing.  The Silent Hill film performed reasonably at the box office and I guess it did well enough for a sequel to be announced.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow looks like a reboot that will actually be good

At E3 in June many were taken aback when Konami unveiled the Castlevania reboot Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Not only were many surprised that the game was being developed by a studio outside of Konami under the supervision of Hideo Kojima but the fact that the game actually looked good was the big surprise.

Hideo Kojima is up to his old tricks again

Over the years we’ve come to know Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima as somewhat of a trickster who has no problem playing tricks or practical jokes on his audience. As you may have read by now on reputable and not so reputable gaming sites it seems like Mr. Kojima is up to his usual tricks again. This time it’s in the form of a mysterious magazine ad and a blank page on the Kojima Productions website.

Konami wants new Saw game to rival Silent Hill.

Konami has recently acquired the licence for Saw. In a recent statement they claim they want to deliver a brand new Survival Horror property equal to that of the publisher’s long running psychological horror series, Silent Hill.
[quote=Konami: David Daniels]Because we have leadership in the survival horror genre we're passionate about it and wanted to find another property on par with Silent Hill.
