Konami is releasing a definitive edition of Metal Gear Solid V, which we all expected to happen sooner or later. You will get both Ground Zeroes & The Phantom Pain in one convenient package and on one disc.

Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour (PC, PS4, XB1)
Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour is a remastered version of the original game that was originally released in 1996, and will include a new episode as well, which is being done by the original creators of this game. On top of that, the original composer has composed new music for this brand new fifth episode being made for this remaster. Even Duke Nukem’s original voice actor, Jon St. John, has returned to record more lines for Duke. Needless to say, this is a remaster done right. I am disappointed that this isn’t getting released on the Vita, though.
Also releasing this week:
PlayStation VR (PS4) – October 13th
Disney Magical World 2 (3DS) – October 14th
