I’m a Ghost, ‘Metal Gear Survive’ Killed Me

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 08/18/2016 by McCutcheon

Snake? Snake? SNAAAA- Yep, he’s dead. But that won’t stop Konami from digging up his grave and sucking the juicy nanomachines from his bones. AND cashing in on that sweet clone blood, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Just give me a cardboard box to hide in, I’m done.

Clone Cataclysm: Big Boss’ Descent, Snake’s Ascent

It’s not often characters are faced with the problem of fighting off their own clone. There are a few characters here and there but it’s even less of a cliche that a major character’s clone/”son” is fighting them on behalf of the original’s own values. There’s a pretty famous scenario that somewhat resembles it but not done in such a modern fashion as it is in the Metal Gear series.

Big Boss and Solid Snake’s relationship may be one of the most complex in entertainment, let alone fiction. And it’s deep enough that to just call it entertainment almost feels like an understatement. There are many great rivalries, but few can compare to the level of simultaneous disdain and attachment opposing characters have for each other. Continue reading

“The world today has become too soft. We’re living in an age where true feelings are suppressed. So we’re going to shake things up a bit.”

You’ve got tricksters, and then you’ve got magnificent bastards. If [Revolver] Ocelot isn’t the latter, then I haven’t been playing Metal Gear Solid and where am I mother, just take me home, I’m crazy and smell fresh bread. I hear it’s amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hara-Kiri Rock.

I need scissors! 61! Continue reading

MBTI: Liquid Snake- ESTP

You think you know Liquid? You don’t know SNAKE!

Considering he’s only been in one game so far (His body anyway, up until Phantom Pain), Liquid, whose real name remains unknown, has left an impression. A renegade clone of the greatest soldier to ever live, Liquid was determined to get the remains of his “father” back…or blow everyone up using the world’s more ridiculous and potent weapon.

That’s not much of a plan but it still demands to be recognized and taken seriously. Yeah, this sounds like ESTP. Continue reading

MBTI: Otacon and Fatman- INTP

While my post on The Three Types of ISTP- Arya, Bronn, and The Hound (Game of Thrones) received some positive feedback, the unfortunate thing is that there are only so many works of fiction with the varying degrees of the same type. So there’s only many posts like that to be made.

But thanks to Metal Gear Solid, we’ve at least two solid examples of an INTP that will allow me to write a full article. Weeee- Continue reading

When the Character is You

We all relate to certain characters in the fiction we like. Heck, it’s part of why we like it. Sometimes it’s as simple as empathizing with a character’s problems or seeing ourselves as the struggling anti-hero we’re watching onscreen.

But then there are the times when the character actually is us. It goes beyond just having things and common and maybe you don’t even like this character- but it’s you, or us rather, as the audience. Continue reading

The Art of Yoji Shinkawa

If there’s one thing I love, it’s barbeque. If there’s another thing I love, it’s the smell of gasoline (The forbidden fruit). But if there’s only one more thing I can say that I love, I guess I’ll say that I love good art.

I don’t necessarily mean weirdo art house art where you’re meant to analyze and interpret what you think the artist was trying to convey by crapping on a mattress. I really just mean art. Like a guy took a pencil, a brush, or whatever; put it to a sheet of paper and created something really cool. That’s what Yoji Shinkawa does and if you don’t know him, you should get to know him.
