New Darkest of Days Screenshots


Some new screenshots have been released for Phantom EFX’s upcoming time-travel shooter, Darkest of Days. In the game, the player will travel to various battles throughout the course of history and change the outcomes or save an individual who had died in the hopes of making a better world for the present. Is time travel safe? Should you mess with the timeline? Probably not on both counts, but this would make for a much less exciting experience. Darkest of Days is scheduled to release this fall on Windows PCs.

Kojima’s Secret Project Hinted With Silhouette


The above image was pulled from Kombo and is apparently hinting at the June 18th issue of PSW magazine. The image displays the silhouette of what we are assuming to be the protagonist of Hideo Kojima’s upcoming mystery title.

We have been assuming his mystery title to be the next Metal Gear Solid game, but the figure above does not resemble anything based in our current reality. The character has a knife of some kind attached to his/her waist as well as what appear to be medieval-style spaulders.
