First Samus Aran, now Aya Brea. In Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve 2, the former NYPD detective kicked monsters up the Bronx and down the Battery with her mitochondrial super powers and customizable weaponry.

E3 2014: Weapons and References in Bayonetta 2

on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 | By Gabriel Zamora

The original Bayonetta was surprisingly rich in respect to its lore and Easter egg references. Names within the game often referenced pop-culture, classic video games, literature, or mythology, or had some significance within Platinum Games. Bayonetta 2 follows suit, as we played the demo at E3 2014, we noted the curious naming of locations and weapons in-game. 1. Love is...

Snake throughout the years.
on Wed, Jun 11, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Early Monday morning we were treated to a new leaked Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer. Like most of Kojima’s work it was a bit hazy and confusing. But this didn’t stop the Metal Gear diehards like myself and a few others on stuff from losing our collective minds. Things have changed.
