Metal Gear Solid V mod unlocks all hidden and DLC items

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 17, 2015 3:44 pm

A newly released mod unlocks every single researchable item for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, including extra hidden characters like Raiden and gear earned from console-exclusive DLC.




The mod goes by the nondescript "DLC and All Item Unlocker" and unlocks the game's full suite of secret items that are normally unlocked through progression. That being said the mod just gives you shortcut access to the templates and doesn't instantly grant you the items themselves--you still have to have the right materials, GMP and leveled R&D prerequisites in order to make and equip the gear.


If you don't have Ground Zeroes this mod will give you access to the content unlocked when transferring a save file, including Snake's golden bionic arm and the retro Snake outfit earned from the PlayStation-exclusive Deja Vu mission. Other goodies include the Raiden suit, Quiet's Naked Gold and Silver outfits, the Cyborg suit and a plethora of visual staples that nod to the franchise's storied history. overwrite your data file.

Persona 5 delayed to 2016, gets new gameplay trailer

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 17, 2015 2:24 pm

Avid Persona fans have been glued to Tokyo Game Show 2015 news in hopes of seeing more Persona 5, and Atlus has delivered with a brand new gameplay trailer. The bad news? The trailer reveals that Persona 5 has been delayed to 2016. Ouch.



Since it was revealed all the way back in 2013, Persona 5 has been one of the most talked-about games in Atlus' label. It's been a while since anyone's heard about the game, and gamers have had to wait since February for a new trailer. Now everyone finally gets a fresh blast of stylish goodness and the excitement is sullied with the crushing disappointment of a delay.


Due to the lapse and disruption of Persona 5 news, fans and community members started to pass along word of an impending delay. The RPG was set to release in 2015 but everyone had their doubts, and Atlus spills the beans in an offhand way--the equivalent of a Dear John letter to millions of fans across the globe.


Persona 5 is set to launch in Summer 2016 across PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Sep 17, 2015 5:08 am

The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook joined Stephen Colbert's new Tonight Show for a chat, when Colbert steered the conversation towards the upcoming feature film based on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs - which clearly wasn't a subject the man wanted to discuss.



Confirming that he hasn't seen the new Steve Jobs film, or the 2013 picture which starred Ashton Kutcher, Cook said "I haven't seen them, but the Steve I knew was an amazing human being... I think that a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic, and I hate this; it's not a great part of our world".


It seems the deification of Jobs continues with the current leadership.

Could Final Fantasy XIV: ARR be a PlayStation VR launch title?

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 16, 2015 9:42 pm

Square Enix's sprawling MMORPG gem Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn might very well find its way alongside the PlayStation VR's launch selection--or at the very least some sort of inclusion on the virtual reality platform.




Attendees at this year's Tokyo Game Show will get the chance to play FF14 within a VR space, breaking barriers that could pave the way for full-on VR MMORPG experiences. The VR demo sees a team of players working together to fight Titan, a primal boss who reigns in the magma-filled pit called The Navel.


This might very well be the first functioning multiplayer MMORPG VR demo ever showcased, and it's a pretty big deal. Thankfuly Square Enix and Sony do it in style and pick one of the best games in the genre today. While the spectacle itself is quite noteworthy, things get really interesting when we think about what the demo could lead to.

SquareEnix merges Final Fantasy worlds for fairy tale RPG

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 16, 2015 8:40 pm

Square Enix showed off another trailer for Final Fantasy Worlds, a huge mish-mash crossover featuring a ton of familiar faces across the franchise's decades-long history.



When Final Fantasy Worlds was first announced at E3 2015, no one really knew what to make of it, and the footage left us scratching our heads. The new trailer showcased at the Tokyo Game Show does a good job of explaining things and gives us a better picture at Square Enix's goal.


Basically Final Fantasy Worlds combines every Final Fantasy canon into a single fairy tale-like realm. This world is called Grymoire, and features lovable creatures like mogs and cactaurs as well as iconic heroes like Cloud, Lightning and the Hero of Light. The game is an RPG at its core, but the graphics are very cutesy and have a self-described "toy-like flair".

Did Naughty Dog just confirm The Last of Us 2?

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 16, 2015 7:27 pm

Naughty Dog writer Josh Scherr might have just inadvertently confirmed the existence of The Last of Us 2.



"All the facial animation in the Uncharted series was led up by Eric, here," Scherr said during livestream session on Uncharted, ad-libbing and thinking on his feet "and [on] the first The Last of Us. Uh, did I say the first The Last of Us?"


This is a pretty big hint and it shows just how a single word can make all the difference. Not so long ago voice actor Nolan North blatantly said that he "knows they're doing a Last of Us 2" so at this point it looks like the cat is really out of the bag.

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 16, 2015 6:15 pm

At this year's annual Tokyo Game Show event, Sony unveiled a name and a release date for Bloodborne's anticipated expansion: it's called The Old Hunters and it releases November 24.



"The Old Hunters is set in a nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever, explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to overcome," a new post on the PlayStation Blog affirms. "You'll find multiple new outfits and weapons to add to your arsenal as well as additional magic to wield and add more variety to your combat strategy."


Sony also revealed that Miyazaki's macabre PS4 exclusive has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, which isn't surprising due to the hardcore fanbase that worships the dark altar of Miyazaki's cruel splendor. Interestingly enough the master himself said that Bloodborne's limited nature was one of the reasons he was excited about returning to Dark Souls 3.
