Konami has officially announced that on June 12th of this year its highly anticipated title, Metal Gear Solid 4, will be released. And that’s not just for us Stateside folks – it’s also the official release date for Japan and Europe. Yes, unlike most sinister and nationalistic Japanese publishers, Konami will be releasing their title simultaneously across the globe. And the best part for this TB writer in particular is that it will be released on his birthday. Who could ask for a finer gift.

For a trailer of the game, check here.

Also here are a couple highly recommended spoofs of the game, hosted by Newgrounds:

Are those really PS3 graphics???

Nippon Ichi Software will finally be making a North America release of the third major installment in its highly successful series, Disgaea, this August. Other than Final Fantasy Tactics and the Vandal Hearts series, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is the only turn-based strategy games that I have ever been impressed by.

Despite the bitching and moaning of graphics-mongers worldwide who find themselves scowling at this game for its last-gen visuals, I am pretty confident this title will still be enjoyable to play. After all, I would take good gameplay over fantastic graphics any day (which is why a huge void of good new RPG’s entering the market has left me replaying FFVII and Chrono Trigger). This news as well as the anticipation of Metal Gear Solid 4 just might give me enough reason to finally pick up a PS3 of my own.
