Payton: More Metal Gear On The Way, MGS4 Ends Snake's Saga

50°
322w ago - As expected, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patroits is not the final chapter in the Metal Gear series, but will serve as the conclusion to Solid Snake's saga.

Confusion arose last week at a press event held in Tokyo, with series producer Hideo Kojima vaguely stating that MGS 4 is "the conclusion to the Metal Gear Saga."

"I think there's been some misconceptions that this is the last Metal Gear," Payton told MTV. He added, "This is really just the last chapter of the saga of the Solid Snake story."

But if this is Snake's story, what's up with the inclusion of Altair's costume from "Assassin's Creed"? And how did Kojima get Ubisoft and Konami to cooperate?

"The "Assassin's Creed" costume was one of the last things we put in the game," he said. "It was kind of a last minute thing [and] we were really lucky enough to have Ubisoft be so enthusiastic about this kind of cooperation. They worked overtime to get that costume into the game."

Preview - Civilization Revolution for PS3

50°
322w ago - If you go online with your PlayStation 3, you have a wealth of options available to you. Well, a few. Okay, so you usually have just the one option and that's running around a small arena ramming the business end of your shotgun down your enemy's throats while crying about lag and half-thinking of jumping to the Quit Match option as you'll know you'll never steal the lead that pwnedurmom69 has built up.

Okay, okay, so the likes of MotorStorm, Skate et al have been ignored for the sake of argument. The point is, Civilization Revolution offers a refreshing change of pace and direction, with its old-school strategy design moulded into next-gen accessibility. You start by picking a race to represent - the Russians, the Indians, the Americans, the Chinese, the Arabs, the Zulus and so on.

Each has its own advantage, with the English benefiting from the eventual invention of Longbow Archers and Spitfire Bombers while Monguls are strong horseback soldiers and can mine resources from the mountains the fastest. The French probably have more white flags than any other nation, but no-one's going to play as them.

Brains over brawn
Then the game begins proper and so does the strategy. You build your main city, then a wealth of options open up for you. Do you build warriors to try and divide and conquer...
 

Porches in Gran Turismo on PS3?

500°
322w ago - In an interview with OPM (Official Playstation Magazine) Kazunori Yamauchi (the head of Polyphony) claims that by the time Gran Turismo comes out, it will have all the major car manufacturers.

"I can't really go into detail at this point, but by the time GT5 comes out I think we'll have most - no, all of the major manufacturers." Yamauchi stated, and when asked about Porsches, he replied "Probably."

While its not confirmation, it does show Polyphony are trying to include every type of vehicle possible.

For those of you knew to the series, Porsches have been one of the major manufacturers NOT to be in a Gran Turismo game, so the prospect of being able to jump in a 911 turbo is enough to get many petrol heads salivating.

The game is due out mid 2009.
 

New Details on Sony's PS3 Horror Game - Siren: Blood Curse!

50°
322w ago - This is a direct translation from the original Japanese Famitsu article linked above. Siren: New Translation is the Japanese release title for the game available in Japan on 7/24 this year for 5980 yen. Siren: Blood Curse will be the US release title.

-Those that weaved the nightmare:
The "Siren" series has always been based on various Japanese cultures and folklores. The base concept for this new game is "looking in from a different cultural perspective", with new characters giving the first game of the series a new translation. This is a introduction to two of those new characters that will appear in the game.

Prologue:
August 3, 2007. An American television crew has suddenly lost contact while covering their story in the deep mountains of Japan. The well-beings of the missing crew are still unknown. Up until the crew completely lost their contact, they were reporting on "found traces of human sacrifice" in the remains of a village which supposedly was wiped out by a land-slide in 1976. The name of that village was Hanyuda...

A bull-headed cultural anthropologist Sam Monroe:
A cultural anthropologist who works at an easy job at a third rate university. His stubborn personality always gets him into trouble by being perverse on his own believes and understanding of things....
