  1. Today's headlines bring a mix of good news, bad news, and... interesting news, to say the least. If you're into either Hyrule Warriors or Street Fighter V, there are some new announcements regarding each, and Sony has finally announced the PlayStation Plus free titles for April. Read on to see the rest of the headlines below! Link's Awakening's Marin will be the next DLC character coming to Hyrule Warriors Legends With Hyrule Warriors Legends, it seems Omega Force is really trying to pull characters from just about every Zelda title out there (well, ), and this rings especially true with the next playable DLC character that's on the way: Marin (from Link's Awakening). She'll be part of the second DLC pack coming this Summer, which also will include a new weapon for Linkle, 16 more My Fairy costume pieces, a new adventure mode map, and two new adventure mode scenarios. The final two DLC packs are said to be based on Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, respectively, but it'll likely be a little longer before we find out which characters will be in each of them. Source: Game Informer Street Fighter V gets its first DLC character today: Alex If you've been waiting for Capcom to roll out the DLC for Street Fighter V, today is your day. Well, for one character at least. Alex (from Street Fighter III) is officially the first DLC character to make his way onto the Street Fighter V roster. You'll be able to use Fight Money (money earned in-game) in order to purchase or him; otherwise you'll need to use real money on a season pass in order to play as the grappler. And if you don't have the money? No problem - Capcom is allowing players to take him for a test run during a limited trial period, so get to it! Source: Destructoid n-Space shuts down More unfortunate news about studios closures today as it was revealed that n-Space, the developer behind games such as Nintendo's Geist and Square Enix's Heroes of Ruin -- has officially shut down. The news was announced by former n-Space artist Ben Leary. Sword Coast Legends was the studio's final game, though it looks like it wasn't enough to keep the studio going, which had been around for some 21 years before its closure. Source: Nintendo World Report David Hayter's got 'no love' for Kojima In some more surprising news, David Hayter -- the original voice of Metal Gear Solid's Snake -- revealed on a recent episode of The Game Informer Show podcast that he isn't crazy about series creator Hideo Kojima, despite having worked with him on all but one of the games. It turns out that Kojima had wanted to replace him early on with Kurt Russell, but the Hollywood star turned down the role when he was offered the part of Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid 3. In turn, Hayter was forced to re-audition for the role (which he ultimately won back again). However, he was left out in the cold when it came to Metal Gear Solid V, and found out that he had been replaced only when he ran into a producer on the game at a recording studio. Needless to say, this didn't sit well with Hayter, who wasn't even formally contacted about it, prompting him to admit on the podcast that he's got "no particular love for Kojima" and that he probably would never work with him again. Yikes. If you'd like to listen to the whole podcast, you can check it out at the source link below. Source: Game Informer (via PlayStation Universe) PlayStation Plus April 2016 lineup revealed Not a day too soon, Sony has finally revealed what PlayStation Plus free titles we can expect to see in April. Dead Star and Zombi appear to headline the bunch, with the usual indies and one other AAA title from last-gen. Here's the full list: PS4 Dead Star Zombi PS3 I Am Alive Savage Moon PS Vita A Virus Named Tom Shutsumi What are your thoughts on Marin joining Hyrule Warriors and Alex being a DLC character for Street Fighter V? Are you surprised that David Hayter holds no love for Kojima? And what do you think of the PS Plus lineup for April? Let us know in the comments!
  2. Many fans were pretty bummed to hear when news broke that David Hayter would not be voicing Snake in the two new games that make up Metal Gear Solid V (interestingly enough, we had predicted that Hayter wouldn't be back for the next installment in the series back in September of last year). But why exactly isn't he doing it? Hayter shed a bit more light on the situation today by releasing a statement about it, saying that he got in touch with someone involved with the production of the game and that they had lunch and the person told him that they wouldn't be needing him on this game. No explanation or reason was given beyond that, according to Hayter. In his statement, he continues to relate how he's loved working on the franchise and that he wishes he could do the role forever. He even states, "To hear anyone else“s voice coming from Snake“s battered throat, makes me a little ill, to be honest." Though Hayter wasn't given an official reason from Konami on why they don't need to use him for Metal Gear Solid V, it would seem that the game revolves around Big Boss, whom Hayter didn't voice in Metal Gear Solid 4, so it stands to reason that they would continue either with the person who did voice him in that game or an entirely new voice actor.

  3. PAX has just begun and we've already seen some gameplay for Kojima's next big sequel in the MGS series, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. But like any new reveal, we're often left with a huge pile of questions and absolutely no answers what-so-ever. But I think I've realized something horrible. Something I never imagined happening to the Metal Gear Solid franchise. I don't think David Hayter will reprise his role as Big Boss. Now I'm not just saying this to stir up trouble; I've actually got a few reasons to think this. And you might just agree with me when you're done reading. Before we begin, there will be spoilers for Metal Gear Solid 4 below this point. You've been warned! In Metal Gear Solid 4 you play as Solid Snake after his body has been ravaged by accelerated aging. At this point he's still voiced by David Hayter, and all is well in the world until we reach the end of the game when it is revealed that Big Boss is in fact still alive. So now we have two characters who have both reached their twilight years and are both voiced by David Hayter. Instead of making things weirder than they already were by having David Hayter talk to himself, the people at Konami decided to cast a new voice actor for Big Boss. That man was none other than Richard Doyle (O'Doyle rules!). This matters for two very obvious reasons. He certainly isn't getting any younger First of all, the voice had been cast for a reason. We needed something more distinct than an eye patch to tell the difference between the two Snakes. If it was just old David Hayter talking to slightly older David Hayter things would have ended up being very confusing for some people. So the voice is the clear indicator between the two old Snakes. While it is entirely possible to go back to David Hayter to play another Old Snake, (that will eventually meet a young Snake. I'll get to that in a bit) they'll just be setting themselves up for some real trouble and here's why. By this point in Big Boss's life, his cloned children are probably preparing for his downfall. It is the end we all know is coming for him. Why does this matter? The same reason Big Boss needed a new voice actor in Metal Gear Solid 4. At some point in the story he will be coming into contact with Solid Snake. It might not even happen in Ground Zeroes. It could be pushed back into Metal Gear Solid 5, but the point is it will happen. The way I look at it, Konami has a few choices. They can give the part of Big Boss to Richard Doyle throughout the next two MGS games to prepare us for David Hayter as young Solid Snake so there will be a difference in the voices. Your hair will never be this luxurious. I'm sorry. The part can be given to David Hayter in Ground Zeroes and suddenly replaced with Richard Doyle in MGS 5 to give the two characters differing voices (A bad idea in my opinion). There's also the chance David Hayter could end up voicing both of them. Or Konami can go for the danger play and cast David Hayter as old Big Boss and give the part of young Solid Snake to someone new. While I hate the danger play, it actually makes the most sense to me. David Hayter is getting older and its been getting more and more difficult for him to do the young Snake voice. While we all already know he can do the Old Snake voice, one has to wonder if he can still pull off a younger version without straining himself, or if he would even want to. Whatever happens, something has got to give somewhere. Whichever character he ends up voicing (it could both) I hope he does a great job as usual. How do you feel about these possible problems arising with Snake's voice? Who do you think should be given the role? Why not post in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.
