As new content rollouts go, Konami's newest reveal for 'Metal Gear Solid V' continues the "I.V. drop method" that many game publishers have employed with their big titles in recent years. This latest media event wasn't an especially large content reveal, but it was the first live demo of 'Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes'.

When we first set foot in Konami's new Los Angeles studio for Kojima Productions, we thought the invitation was merely to provide a fitting setting for the developer/publisher to showcase more gameplay of the hotly anticipated 'Metal Gear Solid V'. We certainly got to see that gameplay, but more on that in another article shortly. What we didn't realize was that September 5, 2013 was also the formal date of the studio's opening. With Hideo Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa, and other high level staff from Japan present, we watched as they carried out a good fortune opening ceremony. Known as kagami biraki, the tradition involves smashing mallets on top of a sake barrel, thereby opening the lid. Everyone was served sake in commemorative Kojima Productions/Konami wood sake cups, which was then followed by a brief toast.

I'm standing on the deck of a double-masted sailing ship, spinning the wheel and ordering the crew to unfurl our full sails so we can race across the waves in search of loot, plunder, and booty. Nearby, two ships are engaged in a duel of cannon fire, and a bell rings overhead to warn me that another ship has turned to pursue us. I need to drop the ship's diving bell over the side of the ship near the wrecked hull of an unfortunate vessel so I can collect some of the rich stuff on the bottom of the ocean, but before I can do that, it'll be smoke and swordplay. Except I'm actually in a hotel suite in Seattle, while a member of Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag" team takes me through the paces, and tries to make sure that I don't run my ship aground on a reef or careen into the wide of a man-of-war.

CHECK OUT ALL OF MTV'S FALL PREVIEWS HERE!

THIS IS PART OF MTV MULTIPLAYER'S 10 MOST ANTICIPATED VIDEO GAMES OF THE FALL! CHECK 'EM ALL OUT HERE.

When LucasArts stopped making point and click adventure games a long while back, the world lost one of the most enjoyable forms of video game art. Games like "Full Throttle" and "Day of the Tentacle" were like interactive storybooks that you could sink yourselves into. Thankfully, many other developers picked up where LucasArts eventually left off, and one of those that has risen to the top of the game has been Telltale Games, developers of last year's amazing "The Walking Dead" game. Not only did it provide a top-notch storytelling experience, it also pumped plenty of emotion to and through the game. They now stand poised to do it all over again with the video game adaptation of the Bill Willingham-written, Vertigo Comics published "Fables" entitled "The Wolf Among Us."

The modular office spaces in San Francisco's South of Market district makes for ideal residency for video game headset manufacturer Astro Gaming. While the company has been in their current digs for over a year, it wasn't until this spring that they opened a retail store. Its opening was well-timed for baseball season, as the store is mere blocks from AT&T Park, primed for Giants fans foot traffic. Adjacent to their office, the Astro Gaming store is not only well-stocked in the company's latest wares, but also with the latest headsets of their parent company, Skullcandy. The space is designed like your typical urban boutique style shop, with the addition of several video monitors for adequate product testing.

Following in the webbed footsteps of last month’s "DuckTales: Remastered," another Disney classic gets a gorgeous HD makeover. More than just receiving a fresh coat of pixie dust, though, "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse" has been crafted from the ground up. The core concept and characters--Mickey must still rescue Minnie from meanie Mizrabel--retain the appeal of the original, but Sega’s promising plenty of new surprises for the mouse ears-wearing masses.
