Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D Demo (Nintendo 3DS)

That’s right Snake fans, you’ll be able to download the Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D demo when it goes live over on the Nintendo eShop later this week.

The demo is set to release this Thursday (16th Feb) and will give fans and 3DS owners a taster of what to expect in the full game when it releases on the 8th of March.

Snake eater, that was originally released on the PS2, is set during the cold war era in the 60’s and see’s Snake infiltrate and wipe-out a soviet infested jungle, in order to bring back a scientist held against his will.

Speaking of infiltrating, there is also another breed of 3DS infiltrating Japan for the release of MGS: Snake Eater 3D…

A special, black snake-skin edition 3DS console plus a copy of MGS: Snake Eater 3D. This has been rumoured to be releasing in Japan only, for now anyway. So if you’re looking for this on release in the UK or the US, you’ll more than likely have to import it.

I’m quite a big metal gear solid fan so will be downloading the demo on Thursday – if my better half decides she will let me use the 3DS of course. If not, then I guess I’ll have to go out and finally pick up a copy of the Metal Gear Solid HD collection.

Overall I’m pretty excited for the MGS demo and really want to see how well its been done on the 3DS – particularly the controls!

Will you be downloading the demo ? If so, let me know your opinions of it below or over on twitter.

With over 2 millions votes cast across various different categories, the organisers-and folk over at the Guinness World Records-claim this to be the biggest video games award ceremony on the planet.

This was the Golden Joystick Awards 29th Ceremony and it was Valve’s Portal 2 that was crowned ‘ultimate game of the year’ – beating the likes of LA Noire, Call Of Duty: Black Ops and Gran Turismo 5 to the top spot.

No game was awarded more than one award this time, but check out this list below to see the winners of each category.

Being the 15th anniversary of the much beloved Nintendo 64 console I thought I’d write a little piece in remembering the console and a list of my top games I enjoyed playing on it.
