Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 2/22/14


"24 actor Kiefer Sutherland has revealed he worked on a new Mortal Kombat game.Speaking to IGN, Sutherland discussed his voicing Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, but briefly mentioned additional work on a Mortal Kombat.Since Sutherland has not previously been involved in a Mortal Kombat, it is likely he is referring to something yet to be announced."


"The Metal Gear Solid franchise is well-known for its complicated story that many say is as complex or even moreso than the twist-heavy TV show Lost. But series creator Hideo Kojima did not intend for it to be this way; in fact, he told Game Informer in a new interview that ideally a story should be simple, at least on the surface.“Having a complex story is not my intention at all,” Kojima said. “It’s nothing I ever shoot for or try to do.”Part of the reason the overarching series narrative might be so complicated is because Kojima did not have the entire plot assembled when he made the first game, he said. This can lead to story inconsistencies, like the ones Kojima previously warned Metal Gear Solid V players to expect."


"When the internet sees something it likes it makes a noise until it gets it. And when a one minute clip depicting “next-gen goat simulation” was uploaded to YouTube there was an awful lot of noise.The result? For just $9.99 you can now pre-order Goat Simulator 2014, the video game that’s set to be more culturally momentous that Grand Theft Auto and Flappy Bird combined.The graphics are solid if not mind-blowing and the story seems to be a bit thin on the ground, but Goat Simulator 2014 more than makes up for these minor shortcomings with mind-blowing gameplay. By which we mean you get to play as a goat, running around and headbutting things to score points."
