Boss Fight Books Returns For Season 2
Digital space in print: An exploration of narrative potential

Video games are pretty cool, guys. You know what else is cool? The things that video games can inspire, especially when that inspiration is realized in another medium. All of a sudden the interactive vocabulary of video games is transposed into another language. A language we're familiar with, but not in the same context.

An Early Glimpse At The First Metal Gear Rising Play Arts Kai Figure

Metal Gear Solid fans are now in a good period if they just so happen to be toy collectors since the franchise has gotten a major push in the merchandise front in the last two years.  Originally MGS has always had cool product representation such as the original action figure lines done by McFarlane Toys, but now that Konami has teamed up with Square Enix to produce figures we’re in a golden era of sorts.

Metal Gear Solid Cyborg Ninja Figure Is Revealed And It Looks Amazing

I may already have too many video game related products as it stands now, but I’ll likely be adding a few more items to my collection in the near future – one of which will be this exquisite Cyborg Ninja figure.  Today Hideo Kojima took to his Twitter account to do something somewhat rare: he made a Twitter reveal that wasn’t wrapped in a bundle of secrecy that was also serving as an epic teaser.

The Director Of Metal Gear Rising Is Finally Revealed + Demo News

At this point the feelings about Metal Gear Rising: Revengance (I giggle every time I type that) are still mixed despite it being well over a month since the game was finally unveiled.  There’s certainly an amount of unfair bashing over the direction MGR has gone in, but for the most part there are some level-headed folks out there who simply aren’t sold on the title, despite either being fans of Metal Gear or developer Platinum Games.

Hideo Kojima Talks Project Ogre, Reveals Open-Ended Approach Being Taken

We may be on the verge of getting weekly or at least bi-weekly updates from Hideo Kojima concerning Project Ogre, his forthcoming project which may or may not be Metal Gear related.  Kojima has of course stayed somewhat elusive as to what the core of Project Ogre would be and for a good while most gamers were under the impression that it would be something radically different for the master game designer.

Hideo Kojima Offers A Small Look At Project Ogre

Most gamers may not be totally sold on the revamped version of Metal Gear Rising, but Hideo Kojima has done us a solid by releasing new images from his forthcoming project.  Currently codenamed Project Ogre, the next potential Hideo Kojima masterpiece will be the debut game utilizing the newly developed FOX Engine, the in-house built graphics engine that Hideo and the team at Kojima Productions have put together.

Get The Full Story On Metal Gear Rising In This New Video

I’ve already shared my initial thoughts on Metal Gear Rising but now we have a better idea of what happened with the project and how Platinum Games came onboard. As promised, Konami and Kojima Productions have released a twenty-five minute video that’s essentially a short documentary as to the origins and history of Metal Gear Rising thus far.

Hideo Kojima Comments On MGS5, Doesn't Say Much

There’s been recent hubbub as of late concerning Hideo Kojima’s "reveal" that MGS5 will happen and that he’s working on it. The news itself came from a legit source as Kojima partook in an interview with OPM UK and apparently said as much.  Well once again we have a case of Euro game journos being a bit too excited and Kojima kind of trolling us with MGS news.

Fresh Images From The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Whether or not the sudden surge in developers creating HD collections of old games is a sign of a lack of imagination is yet to be seen.  So far we haven’t seen too many publishers jump on the HD remix/collection bandwagon and the titles released thus far have mostly been for games people care about such as Tomb Raider or God of War.  Sure, seeing a company release a HD collection may be a way for a few easy bucks to be made but in the case of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection I don’t think people really care as long as the games are good and faithful to the originals.

Metal Gear Solid Becomes Even More Strategy Focused In Risk: Metal Gear Solid (This Isn't A Joke)

I had to do a double take on this news as I thought it was merely a prank of sorts to capitalize on the sometimes over-eager video game press and fans but Konami is co-developing a Metal Gear Solid version of the popular board game Risk.  Now you must be saying that the stealth action of MGS would be perfect for the tactical heavy nature of Risk as the two unlikely combinations would be perfect for a video game. The thing is that the Risk adaptation of MGS is going to be an actual board game and not a video game.
