Head transplant doctor’s MGS5 similarity spawns web of conspiracy

Head transplant doctor’s MGS5 similarity spawns web of conspiracy

The Internet knows no limits to its imagination and the drama it stirs up, and now the doctor best known for his head transplant plans has been swept up into it all. The hoopla started about a week ago when an innocent post was made on NeoGAF comparing a picture of Dr. Sergio Canavero with a doctor character from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (pictures after the jump). This similarity — which is indeed striking — then took off in what has become nothing short of a web of conspiracy, with huge amounts of Internet sleuthing weaving together a massive web of speculation that seems really crazy.

Mighty No. 9 delayed, will now release in September

We've been hearing about the upcoming game Mighty No. 9 for a while now, and though it is still progressing nicely, it won't be released when we've anticipated. Rather, in an update on its Kickstarter campaign, the maker has announced that it is teaming with publisher Deep Silver and that though it will result in a wait, it'll also be good for backers in the long run. Among other things, this new partnership, which the maker says it is excited about it, will bring additional languages to all backers sans extra cost, as well as a DLC that'll include an extra level and boss.

Double Fine’s Broken Age finally whole, part 2 lands April 28

Double Fine’s Broken Age finally whole, part 2 lands April 28

It is, perhaps, an end of an era, both literally and figuratively. Double Fine has finally revealed when it will be shipping the second and final act of its historic adventure game Broken Age. This puts a cap on three years of some quite public and dramatic game development, a game that changed the landscape of Kickstarter forever, and one who may decide the fate of a small studio like Double Fine. The game has been in the hands of backers 24 hours before the fated April 28 launch, and the reviews that will be soon out will probably be as sensational as the game's history.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is now official

If you’re a Five Nights at Freddy’s fan, you’re likely well aware of all the hoopla that happened last week when that blank image — an image of nothing — appeared, hinting (at least many thought) that a new game was going to happen. Such hope was met with good news this evening, with a fourth iteration of the game being made official. There might be a bit of disappointing news wrapped up in it all, however — the game’s name hints that we might have finally reached the end.

Minecraft for PS4 to get ‘The Simpsons’ skin pack tomorrow

Earlier this year, Minecraft players got a The Simpsons skin pack for Minecraft…if they were using an Xbox, that is. We did a mini review of sorts to give a look at the skin pack, and now those on the PlayStation 4 who have been waiting will also be able to get it. The DLC is set to drop this week, and if all goes as anticipated, we’ll be seeing it hit the PlayStation Store on April 28 (that’s tomorrow).

Gears of War Remastered inbound for Xbox One

Gears of War Remastered inbound for Xbox One

The launch of a new console generation is usually an opportune time to relaunch well-loved titles, tweaked a bit to the technology of the present age. We've seen that happen with the rather contentious Halo: Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One. And now it seems that Gears of War will be getting that same treatment, but to a lesser degree. Screenshots and whispers of a remastered version of another iconic first person shooter have been going around the net, though many of the missing puzzle pieces have yet to fall into place.

Mewtwo glitch hits Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

Mewtwo glitch hits Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

Earlier this week, emails with codes to download the playable Mewtwo character in Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS versions of the title rolled out to qualified gamers (those who had registered both versions of the game during the promotional period). It’s a special perk for those gamers, while the rest of us are forced to wait for the character’s availability until April 28. It looks like we’re not missing out on too much, however, with a new glitch causing gamers grief and prompting a statement from Nintendo.
