While we have been primarily devoted to the First Person Shooter (FPS) genre over the first few months of this site, there is some good news on the horizon for people that prefer something more personal to their gaming.
Skyrim and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection have been out for just over a month and they are becoming very popular. While Skyrim isn’t much of a surprise on the front of ‘popularity’ there is a new face joining the XBox 360 landscape – Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
The Metal Gear Series has been primarily on the Sony PlayStation over the past 15 years. While the XBox had MGS2: Substance there really hasn’t been much love given to those of us that were early adopters of the XBox 360. While it is obviously cool that MGS has finally graced us with it’s beautiful High Definition face you should probably make haste (hurry up) and buy it if you see it.
It has a retail price of $50 and is currently on sale at Best Buy and Target for $35-40. I believe these sales will end by December 30, 2011 – so get to it if you want/need this. It has been put on back-order for Best Buy Online and you may have to ask someone at Target where they are hiding it (much like I had to).
In the coming days we will be churning out a lot more videos for MW3, Battlefield 3 as well as the games featured in today’s entry and blog updates too. If you have any driving questions, shoot us a comment or message on here, facebook, twitter or via smoke signals from your over-heating holiday gaming console.

I’m one of those guys that has held off on playing the Metal Gear Solid games. Looks like I have every reason to do so now.
They really did a nice job porting these over to the 360. Hideo Kojima needs to get it through his massive egotistical skull that just because he can make Metal Gear an exclusive title – doesn’t mean he should. Kojima has a bad habit of insisting upon himself and the once vaunted Cell Processor – what a character.
Like The Wolf says on Pulp Fiction – “Just because you are a character doesn’t mean that you have character.”
…better late than never.
