The initial batch of reviews for Konami and Hideo Kojima’s ridiculously anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hit the internet over the weekend, and those of you leaning to the skeptical end of the spectrum may have noticed something peculiar about them: The final scores are exceptionally high, yet many of them lack the detail you’d expect to accompany a sprawling open world game several years in development.

You'd think that after 30 years, Frogger would have found alternate routes to his destination, ones that wouldn't present life-threatening dangers at each and every step. But what would be the fun in that? Instead, you can still control the little green frog past dangerous moving obstacles, and you can do it in an all new game appropriately called Frogger Decades. "Celebrating Frogger’s 30th birthday with an all new adventure! Frogger Decades is an exciting new chapter in the Frogger family of award-winning games, featuring breathtaking animation with an original musical soundtrack and cast... Read more...
