8-bit Metal Mondays: So, there's a game coming out tomorrow...

....and it's one of the most highly anticipated games EVVVAARRR!!! Seriously, just read the ads, for they never lie! It's one of the biggest war/combat series of all time, with millions of fanboys screaming it's awesomeness, whether you want to hear it or not. An it's releasing at midnight tonight! Oh good golly geez, I can't wait! Of course I'm talking about....


The new MGS collection! High def, baby!

Huh? What's wrong? Why the forlorn look? You mad bro?

OH! You mean that OTHER game! Modern Warfare, I see! Well, screw that game! Part two was a major disappointment, and while Black Ops had a great single player mode, I knew that the money was truly sunk into multiplayer, and any hopes of additional single player content went bye bye. The same goes for that Battlefield series. Same thing, different company.

So, screw all these samey looking reality war simulators! I want my convoluted storylines, impossible-to-make mechs, and sneaky action!

Thus, to commemorate the re-release of some real gems of gaming, let's hear some not-too-bleepy metal renditions of some classic MGS tunes.

R.I.P Corey Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus of Gwar


Wow, what shitty news to come home to. I got to see Corey in all his putrid glory several times, and he truly was a great guitarist. Rest in peace, you awesome scumdog of the universe.

The Grand Theft Auto V Trailer Debuted Today, and...


Not impressed. Yet, anyways. There's some promise. Looks like planes are back, and Rockstar appears to be tackling some bigger issues. The recession is clearly shown, and immigrant workers may also be addressed. However, the GTA series is starting to look  a bit dated. With part 4 being a disappointment, part 5 better swing for the fences.

One thing is for sure: if an in-game "kuzeen" of mine calls me just once to go out to play darts, I'm bashing the fucking disc with a mallet!

Lamb of God To Release New Awesomeness, Possible Suspects in Blowing Shit Up

Whenever Lamb of God release new music, I get all goosebumpy and stuff. An LOD record is a sure thing to be good, as they haven't let me down yet. The new album will be called Resolution, and will be out on January 24th. You can start your pre-order at their online store, but I'd honestly wait. The combos available now are pretty weak compared to what LOG have done in the past, so I'm betting some swankier ones are gonna pop up in a bit.

There's some cover art too, but it kinda bothers me.


Okay, deserty and everything, but the hell is burning in the background? We get closer and we see.....


AW SNAP! Lamb of God made Nathan Drake crash land in the desert! All for the sake of a cover photo. Damn Virginians.
