Metal Gear Solid 5

Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain has been released last week in all regions and fans of the series are finally able to enjoy the latest and likely last entry of the series directed by series creator Hideo Kojima.

As it usually is, the PC version of Metal Gear Solid 5 looks quite a bit better than the console ones on the highest graphical settings. However if you think your machine can handle settings above the extra high settings, you may want to check out a new mod which allows players to play the game with extra extra high settings. Differences with the regular extra settings aren’t that big but they are noticeable enough. Obviously the extra extra high settings require a very powerful PC to run the game at 60 FPS so don’t be surprised if your machine cannot handle them. You can learn more about the mod and download it by going here.

In our Metal Gear Solid 5 review, we have noted how the latest entry of the series is, gameplay wise, the best Metal Gear Solid title ever, with the new open world gameplay experience works giving players total freedom on how to get rid of enemies and complete missions. The Mother Base management features are also well implemented in the whole experience, adding more depth. The game is not without its flaws, with some weird design choices that somewhat impact the experience such as the micro-transactions heavy FOBs features and the almost silent protagonist, but there’s no denying that those who like stealth games will find a lot to like in the new game.

Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. We will keep you posted on anything new on the game as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news.

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
