Lots of good stuff to blog about before August comes to a close. Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain tomorrow, excellent lineup of free games for PSPlus members, and some cool stuff from today’s Kombat Kast.
KEPT YOU WAITING HUH?
August has come and gone and new games are on the horizon. Tomorrow is the release of one of the biggest games of the year, if not one of the biggest games of all time. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain drops for all consoles and concludes the story of Big Boss after being stuck in a coma for several years. The game also serves as both a sequel to Ground Zeroes and a Prequel to the original Metal Gear, shedding light on Big Boss’s true motives and reasoning. If you’re a Metal Gear fan, you absolutely shouldn’t miss it, I’m hearing a lot of good chatter about it and if Peace Walker was your cup of tea then this will be right up your alley. My purchase of the game might be delayed a few days since Amazon won’t let me use credit on my account towards pre-orders (lame!) but I’ll be on it soon enough!
PLAYSTATION PLUS FOR SEPTEMBER
Also, don’t forget the new offerings available for Playstation Plus members starting tomorrow. Grow Home and Super Time Force Ultra lead the charge in this onslaught of free games for September. The only thing bad about free games is not having the free time to finish them all, am I right?
MORTAL MONDAY KOMBAT KAST
The crew (krew?) over at Netherrealm Studios sat down today on their Twitch channel to talk about the new changes coming (koming?) with the next update for Mortal Kombat X. There’s a lot of really interesting tweaks that they are moving forward with. I’ve always been impressed with Netherrealm’s approach to balancing the roster, and their continued support for their games long after release. It was music to my ears to hear that Kotal Khan’s Sun God variation is gaining some new tweaks to make him a bit more on par with his other two variations. Other notable tweaks are coming to characters such as Kano (Commando), Sub-Zero (Cryomancer), and Jason Vorhees (Unstoppable). It’ll be fun to see how these changes effect the overall competitive scene and if different characters or variations start to get more attention.
