Adam or Shalashaska, as he came to be known has played an important role in the Metal Gear franchise, so important that he is almost always present in every main title in the series. Ocelot's nickname of Shalashaska was from the mispronunciation of the words "Sharaska" - a slang term for a suspicious, hastily thrown together organization which was also applied to secret R&D facilities in Soviet labor camps and "Shaska" - a type of saber from the Caucasus, for the reputation he gained for the fighting ability he displayed on the battlefield. When put together they create the word "Sharashaska" which then became Shalashaska.

Cowboy up

A new content has been added to the latest "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" update which is said to be made available around the first of August. The update includes several new outfits and new tactics for the Wormhole Generator when playing the game in FOB (Forward Operating Base) Mode, but the best part of the update is the inclusion of Revolver Ocelot as a playable character. According to Konami, Revolver Ocelot cannot be customized, however, playing as Salashahka has its own advantages. Just like his neat tricks seen in the in-game cutscenes, you can have him ricochet bullets to hit marked enemies. He can also dual wield pistols and has a faster reload and draw time with better camouflage.

On top of that, the update will make the Wormhole Generator harder to destroy and will also be immovable once set. The Grade 9 Generator will extract players automatically in tough situations and your Diamond Dogs soldiers gets new outfits named the "Goblin Suit" and "Megalodon Suit" that increase their movement speed. The suits need to be developed first before they can be put to use.

This latest patch is only made available to PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.

A new trick for an old dog

Video game publisher Konami Digital Entertainment and video game developer Hideo Kojima had made a big fuss of their break up that ended a 30-year long relationship for both parties, with Konami quietly removing the Kojima Productions name and "A Hideo Kojima Game" branding.

We honestly did not expect the update as "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" is already two years old and is considered to be the brainchild of Hideo Kojima. It's good to see support coming from Konami for "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain". The game was initially released in the first of September and had its last published patch on August of 2016.
