Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is finally here, and for better or worse, it could be the final Metal Gear Solid ever made.

Controversy marred the build-up to MGSV's launch. Long-time director Hideo Kojima has reportedly been ousted by Konami, following internal conflicts. Similar reports say that Konami are treating staff at Kojima Productions with an unfairness, pending dismissal once the game ships. Konami have been scrubbing all mention of Hideo's name from the game's marketing materials, right after cancelling a high-profile Silent Hill reboot helmed by Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro. What a mess.

Going into this review, I had to wonder if the reported drama at Kojima Productions would have an impact on MGSV's quality. At this early stage, it's hard to claim that it has. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is damn good, but I do have concerns.

I'm relatively new in town, having just moved to Boston a few months ago. I still trek to New York every other weekend, but I've been exploring the new area, looking for things to do and places to see. One service that's especially helpful is Eventbrite (eventbrite.com). It lets you browse and join events. There isn't an official Eventbrite app for Windows Phone, but third-party app Events for Me does a great job.

We've covered Events for Me before, but it has just been revamped. It now allows users to browse and see event details without having to login. It also now has a more streamlined search and filter screen plus localizations in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Check out our hands-on video to see it in action on the Lumia 930.

We have our answers. (Again). Industry watchers, analysts, investors, and enthusiasts all had their questions regarding the direction of Microsoft's mobile future, particularly about long awaited flagships, put to rest.

This is all thanks to communications from Satya Nadella at the end of Microsoft's 2015 fiscal year. Well, thanks to his redundancy at that time.

Spider Square, a crazy game for your Windows Phone

Super simple could describe the Windows Phone game Spider Square. The graphics are minimal, the controls singular and in many respects this BoomBit game is super simple. That is until you get into game play.

The goal of Spider Square is to swing your gaming character from the ceiling of the gaming screen as far as you can without crashing into the ceiling, floor or any of the objects that lie in between. The game has three gaming modes, a nice selection of cartoon characters to unlock and is insanely hard (but that's a good thing).

Spider Square is a free Windows Phone game, available for low-memory phones, but to unlock the easy gaming mode you will need to make a $.99 in-app purchase. It is a fun time waster of a game and a welcome addition to the Windows Phone Store.
