Hideo Kojima Teases Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 30 Minute Gameplay Demo Tomorrow

Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima recently tweeted for fans to expect to see some Phantom Pain gameplay online tomorrow.

Kojima tweeted that tomorrow at 7 p.m. JPT (which is 7 a.m. EST) a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay demo will be presented here, at Kojima Station. The demo will be approximately 30 minutes long and will be the equivalent to what was shown at E3.

We had a chance to see the gameplay demo at E3, and we wrote about it here.

Our Take
If you're at all interested in Metal Gear Solid, I would recommend setting an alarm clock to check out the demo. If it's equivalent to what we were shown at E3, some very cool (and weird) things are shown off.

Limbo And Battlefield 4 Trial Join Instant Game Collection Tomorrow

It might be Memorial Day, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to ignore this week’s PlayStation Plus games. There’s something for both PlayStation 3 and Vita owners that are part of the program are this week.

The regular Instant Game Collection title is Limbo for Vita. Playdead’s silhouetted platformer comes will be available once the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

Additionally, EA and Sony are giving PS3 owners a trial run on Battlefield 4. A version of the multiplayer experience will be available to download starting on May 27. This demo offers up 20 playable hours from when you first get your boots on the ground.

Today is your last day to nab Velocity Ultra for Vita. A lot of games are entering their last week, too. Be sure to lock in your licenses for Stick it to the Man, Resogun, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, Little Big Planet Karting, and the single-player portion of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Our Take
I wasn’t a huge fan of Limbo, but I understand why people are enamored of it. The bigger news this week is that Resogun, one of the best PS4 launch titles (and not just because it was free with PS+) is leaving the service. Even if you don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to lock this one in. It’s a must-have.

Diablo III Players Receive Anniversary Bonus Buff Starting Tomorrow

In honor of Diablo III's two-year anniversary, Blizzard is offering a special week long bonus that turns the Legendary Drop chance percentage way up.

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, May 15 at 12:00 a.m. PT and ending on Thursday, May 22 at 5:00 a.m. PT, Diablo III players on PC and Mac (sorry console gamers) will receive double Rift Fragments as well as a +100% boost to their chance to find Legendary items. The buff applies to all characters and stack with similar bonuses.

Blizzard recently launched its Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo III, which we liked quite a bit. You can read our review by heading here.

Our Take
This new practice of incentivizing play during specific periods of time is a smart way to get players to continue playing. It's not a new idea by any means – Call of Duty has been offering double XP weekends for some time – but it's a practice I like.
