An Extra Save Slot in Metal Gear Survive Costs $10

You can’t even earn the currency through playing the game, as the only way to get more “SV Coins”, is by using your hard earned cash, or logging in every day for 39 straight days, yes we did the math, it would take over a month of logging in every day just to have another save slot, as you earn 30 coins for logging in daily.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Surpasses 1 Million Units Sold

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a great success story, as the crowdfunded title has sold over 1 million copies. The giant realistic RPG from Warhorse Studios has its problems as the game is very buggy, and some of the mechanics can be a bit of a drag, but for being such an ambitious game from a new studio, it has turned out to be quite a damn good title, and with the studio hard at work on patching the bugs, and fixing some of the games odd mechanics such as the save system and lock picking, the future is bright for this title.
