Middle Child Syndrome- Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars Review

Apr 15, 2014

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…Japan. The land of the rising sun is certainly known for, among other things, containing some of the strangest cultural creations ever to see the light of day. The worlds of anime, manga and otaku culture are strange, indeed, and many tropes and themes often bleed from those into the world of Japanese video games....

Big Boss embarks on an ambitious but ultimately criminally short operation. The long awaited fifth entry in legendary producer Hideo Kojima’s signature stealth series is finally here- well, sort of. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, is really just a taste of what’s to come when The Phantom Pain releases sometime next year. While this prologue...
