    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Looks Exactly Like What You’d Expect

    If you're reading this, there's a good chance that we don't even have to explain exactly how strange the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been in the past. The latest and greatest, officially called Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is no exception. The marketing efforts for this installment, which have included originally announcing what appears to be the actual game under a fake studio led by a man with his face covered in bandages, have been particularly strange. Regardless, we now know a bit more about the game thanks to last night's GDC reveal.

    Today in Awesome HD Collection News: Zone of the Enders, Releasing This Fall

    Even though the Zone of the Enders series came from Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima, the series was largely overlooked after the first entry in the series ended up being nothing more than an okay game featuring repetitive missions, mechs, and large energy blasts. However, the bland first installment nabbed a sequel, Zone of the Enders 2: The 2nd Runner, and for some reason, the game was leagues better than the first, secretly ending up as one of the best games on the PlayStation 2, a console widely regarded as being the best video game console to date due to its amazing library of games. If you happened to miss Zone of the Enders 2, starting this fall, you'll be able to hop in the seat of Jehuty, the series' main mech, and catch up on one of the PlayStation 2's best secrets, but in HD remake form, because someone out there loves you.

    Hideo Kojima’s New Business Card is Sharp, Looks Like a Razor

    Hideo Kojima doesn't mess around, and he wants you to know that upfront. That's why his business card is a razor, I suppose. Well, it's probably not actually a razor, but it sure looks enough like one that I wouldn't want to put it in my pocket. Maybe he's embarking on a campaign to get people to leave him alone, or maybe he has a vendetta against fingers. I'll stick to business cards that just paper-cut people, thank you very much.
