This FPS Art Exhibit Has Giant Graphics Cards, Duke Nukem's Pistol

Mount & Blade II's In-House Engine And Modding Tools Are Beyond Awesome

Snake's New Best Friend Is A Wolf Named DD

Snake has a new best friend in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And thus was Call of Duty Dog completely forgotten.

Snake finds DD — short for Diamond Dog — in the woods during his journeys.
