Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain, the new entry of the Metal Gear Solid series released last month in all regions on consoles and PC, has received a few updates in the past weeks introducing some changes, tweaks and fixes to all versions of the game. Earlier today the PC version of the game developed by Hideo Kojima and his team has received a new update which apparently removes some of the items of the game.

The new Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain PC patch is around 180 MB big and full patch notes have yet to be revealed. According to several online reports, the patch doesn’t add anything meaningful but actually removes some of the game’s items such as the golden bionic arm and Quiet’s Sniper Wolf outfit. The console versions of the game have yet to be updated so we don’t know if the removal of these items is a mistake or not. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as more comes in on it.

UPDATE: The removal of the items is apparently a bug. The team is aware of the issue and a fix should be coming soon.

UPDATE 2: Another patch has been made available. According to reports, it fixes the removal of the golden bionic arm and Sniper Wolf outift.

A new Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain mod for the PC version of the game has been made available last week. This new mod, which is called Hardcore Mod, increases the game’s difficulty leve by introducing several gameplay changes such as a 50% increase of enemy hearing and vision ranges, added benefits for weather, decreased enemy knockout time, increased bullet damage, reduced empty magazine uses and more.

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is now available in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. We will let you know more about this new PC patch as soon as more news come on the matter as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news on Hideo Kojima’s latest game.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
