Metal Gear Solid Smart Watch Theme Will Make You Feel Like It’s 2005

A special codec theme for the Moto 360 smart watch makes it look like it's from the future – until you remember Metal Gear Solid takes place in 2005.

It's a great argument for why smart watches are cool, as long as people can't interrupt your day to add excessive exposition about your surroundings or your mission. You can download the theme so you can always have Solid Snake staring at you from your wrist by heading here.

Modders Place Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes In The First-Person

Metal Gear Solid has always flirted with first-person controls. You've been able to enter the first-person to fire your weapon since Metal Gear Solid 2, and there was even the weird Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer that teased the game being first-person in its opening minutes. To actually play a whole Metal Gear game in first-person, however, has never been an option – until now.

Modders have taken the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and incorporated first-person shooter controls with success. You can see the mod in action below, which isn't perfect, but does offer a Metal Gear experience we've never really seen before.

If you want to grab and install the mod yourself, you can head here.
