BABYMETAL show London how to rock out live at The Forum 7th July 2014

New Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer

New Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer
The Tokyo Game Show has yet another Konami treat this year as we get to see a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. After the MGS: Ground Zeros announcement, it’s easy to see how the Raiden spin-off game could be completely overshadowed but from the trailer below I feel many will agree that there’s such a different direction for gameplay and style; comparison will become near impossible and therefore Revengeance will have more than... 

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Extended trailer

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Extended trailer
So only last week, the world was given the sneaky release of information surrounding the new Metal Gear game.
