Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain has launched almost two weeks ago in all regions and the game thankfully doesn’t suffer from many major issues. One issue in particular, however, is especially annoying, as it causes the save file to become corrupted, forcing players to restore a backup of the save file or to start the game from the beginning. This issue is caused by bringing Quiet as a buddy on missions 29 and 42. Thankfully, this issue has finally been addressed on some formats by a new patch released a few hours ago.

The new Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain patch addresses not only this save corruption issue but also another issue which prevented players from continuing the game when using the selection controls during the tutorial when first buying a Forward Operating Base.

Here are the full patch notes for the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

  • Fixed and issue where under specific conditions, the game halts progression in the black screen displayed after clearing Mission 29 and Mission 42 .
  • Fixed the issue where once the prior issue is triggered, the save data goes directly to the black screen and game progression is halted.
  • Fixed the issue where using the selection controls during the tutorial when first buying an FOB the game halted progression.

A release date for the patch on other formats has yet to be confirmed but it should be released very soon, according to Konami.

Last week we have reported that Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain has received a new Extra Extra High Settings mod, which allows players to play the game with even better graphics. These settings are very demanding so don’t be surprised if your PC struggles in running the game with them at 60 FPS.

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

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.
