Metal Gear 5 Confirmed...Saint's Row the 3rd expansion canceled.

First major news on the forefront is a surprise. Metal Gear Solid 5 is in the works and will star everyone's favorite war torn hero Solid Snake.
Hideo Kojima has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 5 is in the works and that it will be built using the Fox Engine.This comes as no surprise since the Fox Engine is their in house tech to make games easier to produce. The developer told French magazine IG that he's working on the game and that Solid Snake is in it. According to Eurogamer.fr , "MGS5 will be more of an infiltration game, with characters who can interact, as seen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution."  Kojima also went on to mention Metal Gear Solid Rising:Revengeance. "This [Revengeance] is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots." So I am sure with this news we hopefully will know soon how long they have been working on this new Metal Gear and when we can expect it in our grubby little hands.

On another gaming news the self contained expansion for Saints Row the 3rd titled Enter the Dominatrix will not see the light of day. At least not the way we expected. Seems that the people at Volition really liked what they saw and decided to hold it off for their next Saints Row sequel.  Of course this would be along the likes of  GTA:Vice City where it was not an exact sequel but still was large and great as it's own game. Smart move especially if they take the premise that the guys at Ubisoft took with Assassin's Creed where Brotherhood and Revelations both help fund Assassin's Creed 3.



One last note. I started playing Lollipop Chainsaw and I must say though there are a few little quirks with the game it is EXTREMELY FUN. I think people really need to give the game a chance and see it for what it is a truly enjoyable though small bit irritating fun fest. I wish I could tell you what happened to our Wed. regular post from Ed but still no contact from him. Till I find out I guess you will see a post from me or Magma.
