Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is out soon

Metal Gear Solid V:The Phantom Pain, one of the most anticipated games of the decade, if not the century, is coming out on September 1. The gaming world is already in a frenzy about the release of the latest instalment of one of the most discussed video games. The fact that Hideo Kojima, the revered creator of the Metal Gear series, has been forced out of Konami and this is their last collaboration is also a factor which has contributed to an even larger buzz around the release of The Phantom Pain.

"Snaaaaaaaaaaaaaake"

Reviews of the game have actually already been posted, and all of them have been positive. Of course, this is not very surprising as the Metal Gear franchise is acclaimed for its quality and exceptional plot (albeit with very long cutscenes in the previous title. Many are in fact predicting that the release of the game will cause PlayStation 4 sales to increase as many gamers will want to experience it on the latest console and video game is serious business!

Personally, I'm sticking to the PlayStation 3 version. Call me silly, but I don't see the thrill of buying a console for a single game. But then I've been known to change my mind before, and I'm already giggling like a little girl at the prospect of an open world Metal Gear game.

Yes, the ticket numbers are really small on the artwork. I can't do anything about that.Engen seem to be experts at doing a huge marketing campaign around their extravaganza and being quiet about the lucky draws.The guys at Engen Bagatelle have nothing to do with the marketing and the lucky draw, so don't be dicks. If you have something to complain about, direct your comments to the Engen head office.

Mauritius newspapers online

This is a list of the main newspapers in Mauritius as well as their websites. I suspect that this will mainly be of use to Mauritian expatriates since it is more customary for people in Mauritius to actually buy their newspapers (turns out the feel of paper in their hands is that important). This Mauritian newspaper list will also be helpful for those who wish to tour all the newspapers on any given day.
Le Défi Le Défi is the most popular newspaper in Mauritius. While it was originally only published on Saturdays, its rapid popularity has seen the group expand into several publications.


These different newspapers include:
Le Défi Quotidien - which, as its name implies, comes out every day (except weekends)
Le Défi Plus - is published on Saturdays only
Défi Sexo - a newspapers that deals with sexuality and is a half-assed attempt to get easy sales by exploiting the sexual frustrations present in a big portion of the Mauritian population (which, you know, eventually leads to sexual assaul…

Where to buy a PlayStation 4 in Mauritius

I recently got a PlayStation 4 because my PlayStation 3 died out on me. There are not many games I'm looking to play but I figured it would be easier to just go for the PS4 since I watched my blurays (including 3D) on my PS3. I figured I would buy a PS4 instead of a normal bluray player as the PS4 has tons of nice features including Netflix which is now available in Mauritius.



I checked through most stores around Mauritius before I finally got a PlayStation 4 and these are my conclusions:

Don't buy your new console in major outlets such as Galaxy. The consoles are very expensive there. Sure, you get a game or two in the bundle, but it is almost always cheaper to get the console and the game separately. In many cases, you get crap games anyway. Considering how expensive the games can be, you don't want to end up with crap ones.Cellbest and One O One have the best prices. Depending on your haggling skills, you can even knock the One O One price a bit.I hear MicroMania is grea…
