The Pro Evolution Soccer series used to be top dog until it was supplanted by the flashier, better licensed FIFA games. Today, PES suffered another blow, with publisher Konami announcing the German club Borussia Dortmund terminated its licensing agreement a year ahead of schedule, meaning the top-tier Bundesliga team…
By the time I got to the elementary school in Silent Hill, I was so scared that I had to turn off my PlayStation. If those little grey children with their little baby butcher knives were too much for me to handle, well, frankly I’m surprised I didn’t suffer a full-on nervous breakdown the first time I encountered…
One of the few brightspots in an increasingly bleak existence for Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series has been the fact that back in 2008 it signed a 10-year deal with the massively-popular UEFA Champion’s League. That deal is now over.
It’s called Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls and going into closed beta in Japan. No word yet on a release date or if the action game will get an international release.
What a thrill... Metal Gear Survive starts up a new co-op event on April 10th with rewards based on Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Beat up some nano-zombies and you could dress up like characters from a much better game.
The most recent issue of Weekly Famitsu polled 6,678 non-Japanese people, asking their opinions about Japanese video games. Which twenty did they say they liked most? Let’s find out!
Metal Gear Survive is wreckage of the long battle between the series’ lead creator, Hideo Kojima, and Konami, his long-time employer who ditched him three years ago. Kojima split with Konami after a lifetime of making Metal Gear games, going back to the first in 1987. Survive is Konami’s attempt to make a new one…
Metal Gear Survive is the first game in the longrunning series to not involve director Hideo Kojima, which may make you wonder: Is he in the credits? The answer is yes, sort of.
Metal Gear Survive tosses players into a giant wasteland full of zombies and dangerous animals, where they have to loot supplies and build up a massive base. Heather and Paul pilfered potatoes and gaped at nanotech dinosaurs in the game’s single player mode.
The Metal Gear series’ future was uncertain after creator Hideo Kojima left Konami. Metal Gear Survive tosses away stealth and politics in favor of zombies and loot. I’ve played about five hours of the game and so far, while it captures the feeling of braving the wilderness, it’s also a slow grind.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has a secret ending that plays only if all players dismantle their nuclear weapons. It requires players to disarm all nukes in the game, a nearly impossible task thanks to hackers and hoarders. Last week, the end suddenly triggered even though countless nuclear weapons still exist…
This morning, Konami released the TurboGrafx-16 games Battle Chopper and Necromancer for Wii U. That’s right: It’s the year 2018, and Konami is still releasing Virtual Console games on Wii U for an audience of almost nobody. It was already kind of weird that they were still releasing games six months ago, but now it’s…
Metal Gear Survive doesn’t have a lot of charm, but it’s still a fun time if you’re playing with friends. Staff Writer Heather Alexandra and Video Producer Paul Tamayo geared up to building bases and stab nano-zombies in this absurd and perplexing Metal Gear spin-off.
Metal Gear Survive, the bizarre zombie horde survival game that really has nothing to do with Metal Gear, kicked off an open beta yesterday. It’s surprisingly fun to play but lacks the heart and quirkiness that drew people to the series to begin with.
In Tokyo’s Akihabara, Card Shop Spiral sells inexpensive and super expensive Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. The priciest one in the shop is Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. The tag says it’s the only one of its kind in the world.
Symphony of the Night took the best elements of the Castlevania series, injected in RPG elements, and created one of the most compelling games for the original Playstation. A platform-adventure action role-playing game, it was developed by Konami and released in 1997 for the original PlayStation.
Back in 2012, an elderly couple appeared on Japanese TV, showing off their DDR skills. It’s 2018, and the two are still tearing up their local arcade.
Switch launch game Super Bomberman R might not have been everyone’s favorite, but it’s still getting love. Today’s 2.0 update adds a brand-new 3-on-3 Grand Prix battle mode, fixes some bugs, and adds characters and accessories based on Konami classics like Rumble Roses and Silent Hill.
