6 Metal Gear Solid 5 Fan Theories So Crazy They Might Be True

6 Metal Gear Solid 5 Fan Theories So Crazy They Might Be True

If there is one thing Metal Gear Solid fans love more than tactical espionage action, it's speculating about where the series is going next. We already know plenty about Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain thanks to trailers, its prequel Ground Zeroes, and from it being set in the middle of the Metal Gear timeline. That's all fuel to the fire of fans predicting what mind-bending high drama Kojima is going to spring on us in the finished game. Here are six fan theories so bonkers they might just be true.

Sunset Overdrive Does Grinding and Gunplay, But Will it Blend?

Sunset Overdrive Does Grinding and Gunplay, But Will it Blend?

There is a lot to admire about Sunset Overdrive, the punky platform-shooter for Xbox One, not least its gender-bending character customisation. But, asks Andy, can Insomniac's "Tony Hawk with guns" pull off a trick combo of high-speed grinding plus satisfying gunplay? Ponder along with some Sunset Overdrive gameplay footage after the jump.

Show of the Week: Forza Horizon 2 Takes Place at World's Best, Least Plausible Festival

Show of the Week: Forza Horizon 2 Takes Place at World's Best, Least Plausible Festival

The Horizon festival around which open-world racer Forza Horizon 2 takes place is a Mediterranean paradise for music-loving petrolheads. If it turns out to be a literal paradise because you died in a car ferry accident on your way to Italy, I will be only half-surprised. How else to explain the festival PR, who has the voice and likeness of 90s pop heartthrob Sean Maguire and dishes out free supercars like promotional tote bags? Answer me that, Show of the Week.

8 Videogame Lawsuits That Didn't Go According to Plan

8 Videogame Lawsuits That Didn't Go According to Plan

Videogames are a multibillion dollar business these days and wherever that kind of money is sloshing around, lawsuits are sure to follow. Sega is being sued because Aliens: Colonial Marines was so awful, Oculus is being sued because John Carmack is so clever, and Rockstar is being sued because you can't create a parody of a Hollywood starlet without it being compared to Lindsay Lohan, even by Lohan herself. But this isn't a new thing; here are eight allegedly ridiculous lawsuits that allegedly didn't go according to plan. Allegedly.

Watch Dogs DLC Bad Blood Adds 10 Missions, New Protagonist, Remote Control Car

Watch Dogs DLC Bad Blood Adds 10 Missions, New Protagonist, Remote Control Car

You might remember Raymond 'T-Bone' Kenney from Watch Dogs; he's the Rob Zombie lookalike who introduces himself by throwing Aiden through a plate glass window. So we already like him, which is convenient because he is who you will play as in Bad Blood, Watch Dogs' first piece of DLC, which adds new story missions, unlimited co-op challenges and a remote control car.

Could Project CARS Be Xbox One's Most Realistic Racing Game?

Could Project CARS Be Xbox One's Most Realistic Racing Game?

The underdog story is ingrained in British culture. We can't help rooting for anyone punching above their weight. The other thing that's ingrained in British culture, at least in terms of videogames, is the racing game. Brits are pretty ruddy good at them, which is why we're rather excited for Project CARS: a game whose development is led first and foremost by the desires of racing game fans. It's set its sights on Forza's crown, but can it play with the simulation big boys?

6 Videogame Idiots Who Had One Job, Idiot

6 Videogame Idiots Who Had One Job, Idiot

When we screw up at work, the consequences for most of us are minimal. Maybe accounting doesn't get those TPS reports on time, or people on YouTube don't find out which hats are the seven best hats in videogames. For these characters however, the knock-on effect of being terrible at their jobs were far-reaching; without them and their uselessness, some of our favourite videogames would never have happened.

Flockers is Lemmings but with Sheep, Watch Us Play It on Xbox One

Lemmings was a 1991 Amiga game in which you had to keep marching horde of lemmings from killing themselves, rerouting your suicidal gang to a safe exit. Flockers is essentially that but with sheep, a dash of physics puzzling and more gore than Halloween at Eli Roth's house. Watch us shepherd these woolly idiots to safety in this Xbox One gameplay.

Recall Lets You Shoot Alien Women and Zombie Women in Clubwear

Recall Lets You Shoot Alien Women and Zombie Women in Clubwear

Recall is a reprehensible Xbox 360 indie game in which you start on a space station shooting alien women on their way to a nightclub, then are teleported to a dungeon where you shoot similarly attired zombie women. This is all with the aim of unlocking your lost memories, but these memories are poor CG renders of women in lingerie, so it is really not worth the effort. Watch us play Recall so you don't have to?

Warriors Orochi 3 Is Unbridled Chaos, Now On Xbox One

We're hungry for new games on the Xbox One at the moment, and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate just about counts. Alright, it is technically an 'Ultimate' edition of a game that was released on Xbox 360 back in 2011, but regardless, it's been stuffed with extra characters and missions and gussied up for an Xbox One release. With little to no understanding of Warriors Orochi beyond the fact it involves huge battles and kill counts in the thousands, we lobbed ourselves into the fray.

The 7 Spectacular Landmarks You Must Visit In The Crew

The 7 Spectacular Landmarks You Must Visit In The Crew

The Crew is probably the most ambitious driving game yet attempted. Ubisoft and Ivory Tower are attempting to compress the entire Continental US into a playable sandbox, and our time spent with the PC beta suggests they have been entirely successful. There's a real sense of the scenery and landscape changing as you traverse the country. This is the great American road trip in videogame form and knocks pale imitations like Need For Speed: The Run into a cocked hat. So with a console beta arriving in September, here are the places you should be sticking in your GPS.
