METAL GEAR SURVIVE Needs An Online Connection To Play

As if Metal Gear Survive didn't have enough of a hill to climb at launch, news has just dropped that it will require an internet connection to play. That includes for the single-player campaign, and while most people have an internet connection in their homes these days, one has to wonder Konami is using such an unpopular feature in their game? 

This news comes on the heels of the announcement that the game won't release until 2018, so things are already looking bad for the follow up to MGSV. To be fair, they looked pretty grim from the start considering this will be the companies first attempt at keeping the series alive in the wake of Hideo Kojima's absence. 

While all this news seems bad, perhaps the worst news is that Konami is likely going to tank this franchise by the time this is all said and done, and another great gaming franchise will come to an end. Of course, Kojima can create a spiritual successor of sorts with Death Stranding, but it won't be the same. 

Is there anyone out there that hopes that despite what all we've learned that Metal Gear Survive is good?

Sony Announcing Several New Games Monday Morning

Paris Games Week isn't really one of the premiere gaming events of the year, but Sony is treating it as such. The company has plans to provide updates on 22 PS4 and PSVR titles, as well as announce seven new games. 

Fans wanting to jump in and see what the buzz is all about can tune in to Sony's live stream beginning at  12 p.m. ET. Those who want to skip the updates on games we already know about and get right to the new stuff should tune in at 1 p.m. ET. 

As for what we can expect I'm assuming we'll see more of Spider-Man and Monster Hunter World, and possibly Fallout VR? As far as the game announcements are concerned I'm expecting maybe two or three titles to be excited about, with maybe some somewhat interesting PSVR games getting tossed in there as well. 

What do you think Sony has in store for this event?

Adam Conover Says It Would’ve Been Harder To Fake The Moon Landing Than Do It

While some believe the moon landing was faked, others like Adam Conover are wholly convinced it wasn't. In addition to the fact that 400,000 NASA employees would've had to keep quiet about it for decades, Conover says that the lighting on the moon landing would've been impossible for filmmakers in the 1960s to replicate. He explains it better in the video below, so hop on down there and send this to a friend who believes it was all something shot by a director on a soundstage. 

Man Fends Off Attacker Using NARUTO Headband

For some, Cosplay is life. For a very select few, Cosplay SAVED their life. That's at least what 21-year-old Anthony Durden is saying after he was attacked on the New York Subway. A man approached Durden and slashed him in the face. Durden, who was returning from NYCC when the incident occurred, punched his attacker in the face with a Naruto headband to fend him off. 

The hit worked as the attacker fled at the next stop and Durden was rushed to the hospital where he received 20 stitches to treat his wounds. The NYPD hasn't tracked down the attacker yet, but Durden says he does forgive his attacker for the incident...which only makes me think he handled the situation quietly with some Ninjitsu. 

The whole ordeal sounds humorous, but the aftermath does not. Check out the full pics on Pix11 to see just how dangerous a situation this almost was. 

Adam Sandler Shares Hilarious Story Where Dustin Hoffman Snubbed Daniel Day Lewis

I'm just going to warn you straight out, this story starts a little dry, but Adam Sandler really knows how to sell a comedic moment! Sandler tells a story where Dustin Hoffman (who stars alongside Sandler in The Meyerowitz Stories) accidentally snubs Daniel Day-Lewis in the best way possible. Check out the story below, which I think will give Lewis and Hoffman a good laugh the next time they meet.

Learn How To Make The Turkish Delights From THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA In This Video

Binging with Babish just created the Turkish Delights from The Chronicles Of Narnia, and while they look delicious, they taste like shit apparently. That's super disappointing for me personally as those treats were one of the few things I remember from that film, and now I'm learning they taste like perfume?! The good news is you (not me I'm awful at cooking) can substitute ingredients to make them more palatable. Check out his video below for tips on making a decent Turkish Delight.
