- MGS4 “Steel” Bundle 40GB PS3 exclusive from Konami… $600!?!? WTF This thing probably doesn’t even have backwards compatibility with the PS2!
- MGS4 Goes Gold, Includes iPod and Playboy Brands: Great, it’s gold. I just hope that playboy stuff is merely swimsuit style so they don’t get in trouble.
- 5 New Screenshots: Yawn.
- Metal Gear Online Beta: I played it, it’s fun. Yes it isn’t perfect. Yes it requires multiple logins to be created. Yes the controls still aren’t great. Yes snapping necks as Solid Snake when everyone else is generic militiaman or genome soldiers is the best multiplayer experience I’ve had recently.
The Joystiq Podcast crew hit their 49th episode this week, Chris Grant, Ludwig Kietzmann and Justin McElroy, are covering random games and lots of GTA4, as expected. The best part is their Philadelphian Vocal Pronunciation class. This link is their RSS feed, this one is the direct MP3, and this one is the iTunes subscription. In a previous episode they even answered a question from Y.T. about the Korean game industry.
The 1UP Show is covering Valkyrja of the Battlefield, Boom Blox, and Metal Gear Online. I really dug their coverage and am now more interested in all three games. This link is their RSS feed, and this one will subscribe you in iTunes.
