Happy Birthday, Metal Gear

Konami released the first Metal Gear title on July 13, 1987 for the MSX2 computer. Created by Hideo Kojima, the stealth game was released to little fanfare, but found a solid base after its release on the Nintendo Entertainment System. After releasing a sequel on the PlayStation, Metal Gear Solid, the franchise has since achieved mega-cult status for fans.

Happy Anniversary, Metal Gear!

Metal Gear Survive Delayed

Normally, I wouldn’t really post about this, as this game is a complete cash-grab and mockery of all that makes this series so memorable. But, it’s pretty damn hilarious. Konami has stated to Polygon that Metal Gear Survive has been “pushed back a few months” to allow for more polish on the game.

Metal Gear Survive was announced in 2016, and will have a mysterious single player mode, as well as multiplayer that will pit teams of players against zombie-like enemies. The game is set an alternate universe after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prequel to Phantom Pain.
