Playstation Turns 20. Feel Old Accordingly

Playstation is celebrating their 20th anniversary today. The original Playstation went on sale in Japan on December 3, 1994.

New Metal Gear Rising Trailer Is So Metal Gear It Hurts

Metal Gear has become the David Lynch of video games. It sure does look pretty but I’ll be damned if I know what’s going on. I made it through Metal Gear Solid 4 and felt I understood a good 73% of it and now you have Metal Ground Solid: Ground Zeroes in the works and that […]
