Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain

It seems like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One will run at 1080p 60fps. The news comes from the website Gamekyo, as they asked Konami rep Julien Merceron, what resolution and framerate the Xbox One version runs at. Now reps have been wrong in the past, so I guess this isn’t a 100% confirmation till gamers get the game in their hands. Via: ticgn

Rare Co-founder Doesn’t Know why Nintendo Didnt Purchase the Company


At one point, Nintendo held a 49% stake in Rare, but in 2002, the whole company was purchased by Microsoft.  Rare co-founder Chris Stamper, has said he has no clue why Nintendo didn’t purchase the company.

I’ve no idea why they didn’t do that,” he recently said to Develop. “I thought we were a good fit.”

Stamper felt that the company needed the aid to keep up with the rising costs of development.  

“The price of software development was going up and up with the platforms, and Rare works really well with a partner. We were looking for someone to help broaden our horizons.”

Nintendo could have really used Rare with Wii U. What do you guys think? I think if Nintendo purchased Rare, a lot of the talent wouldn’t have left.

Star Wars Battlefront - “Blast” Team Deathmatch Mode Revealed


Star Wars Battlefront will feature a 10v10 online team deathmatch mode called “Blast”. Rebel forces will battle Imperial factions in this 20 player game mode. The side who gets 100 kills first or has the most at the end of 10 minutes wins.

“One battle you’ll be fighting within interior levels on Endor or Sullust,” said lead level designer Dennis Brännvall. “In the next battle, you might find yourselves among Tatooine’s dusty canyons, or inside the undeniably cool Ice Caves on Hoth.

“My favorite is the verticality of Tatooine, fighting by the Sandcrawler.”

“As in other Star Wars Battlefront game modes, the key to success is choosing a hand with a weapon layout that suits you and the battle conditions,” said Brännvall. “Also, you’ll find weapon pickups strewn across the map, and since there are no vehicles or Heroes & Villains joining the fight, the strategic value of these pickups is quite high.

“Whether you pick up a Droid scanning for nearby enemies or a turret that’ll control a zone for you, the pickups can really turn the tide of a Blast match. They are not around every corner though, so keep your eyes peeled.”
