Konami has warned players there’s a game breaking bug in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain that will corrupt your game save and halt progression. This is a bit of a public service announcement basically, to make sure you don’t fall into this trap during your playthrough.
Despite performing great and being extremely well optimised indeed, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain comes with a frame rate cap on PC. Konami made the decision to limit the maximum frame rate to 60 frames per second, and up until now there was no workaround for PC gamers who wanted to unleash the full capabilities of their graphics cards.
When you think of Snake and Metal Gear Solid, you’re mind probably drifts pretty quickly to the iconic triangle, square circle and cross of PlayStation. Despite appearances on plenty of other platforms, Metal Gear Solid has been an icon for Sony’s line of consoles. It’s one of the highest rated series of all time, and finally we’ve been given a PC version day and date with the console release in the shape of MGS V. 12 year old me wouldn’t believe my eyes.
Kept you waiting, huh? After years out in the wilderness, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has finally arrived. In fact for PC gamers, it's arrived two weeks earlier than we'd anticipated. It's Hideo Kojima's final flourish with the long-running,  bona fide crazy stealth-action series and on first impressions it looks like he's going out with a bang. 
Okay, stop whatever you’re doing, Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer is here and it’s a beauty. The man’s indeniable talent for going from the sublime to the ridiculous is ably demonstrated by the heart-tugging opening three minutes, before seguing smoothly to a Metal Gear with a robot gun dick. Never change, Kojima. Never change.
It’s only thirteen more days until Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is upon us; the concluding chapter to Hideo Kojima’s epic series. I’m not going to lie, waiting has become a teensy bit painful by this stage, but PlayStation Japan has sent along a fresh video to remind us it will all be worth it in the end.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is arriving in just over three weeks, and with Konami recently announcing that the PC port would be coming two weeks earlier than expected, there's now launch parity with the consoles. The only deciding factor between which version of MGS V to pick up now is the visual differences, so we've got some comparison screens between the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Phantom Pain. 
Konami have put out an in-depth look at Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom. And I mean in-depth. This is over half an hour of commentated footage running over the single-player campaign, managing Mother Base, and how Metal Gear Online will work.
I’m a strong believer that the three most important things in life are: water, food, and Metal Gear Solid. So it was with a heavy heart I saw the latest Phantom Pain trailer remind us that this is the end of an era - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will reportedly be the last mainline outing in the series, and certainly the last from Hideo Kojima.
Despite all the turmoil going on over at Konami HQ right now, the once-great videogame publisher still has one final ace up its sleeve - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. New outings for Snake and chums come but once in a blue moon. MGS 4: Guns of the Patriots whisked us away on a cinematic adventure more than seven years ago, and now finally we get to see the final piece of the MGS puzzle.
Nvida’s latest gaming bundle is the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Users who buy one of a range of newer graphics cards from qualifying stores will get a copy of Hideo Kojima’s eagerly-anticipated open-world stealth sequel.
