Character Talk: Big Boss

“You Either Die A Hero, Or You Live Long Enough To See Yourself Become The Villain” Harvey “Two-Face” Dent in the Dark Knight

Oh boy, here is a big one. This is kind of a follow up to last Character Talk about the Boss. He first made his debut as the villain of original Metal Gear back in 1987 release wise. In game’s chronology, he debuted in 1964 in the Snake Eater. He is the greatest soldier that has ever lived and the one every Snake is trying to match.

Random Thoughts: Sequels

Ironically, this is sequel to Random Thoughts: Prequels.

In some sense, I feel that sequels are harder than prequels. The sequels have to live up to the original movie, usually meaning higher stakes and grander scales, and that doesn’t always mean good things.

This is going to be a long one.

Character Talk: the Boss

“I gave up my body and my child for my country. There is nothing left inside me now. Nothing at all. No hatred, not even regret. And yet sometimes at night I can still feel the pain creeping up inside me. Slithering through my body, like a snake.” – the Boss

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Game Review

Metal Gear takes its first step into the new generation, kind of. This is more of a demo than a full game.

Coming from … sigh … Konami, MGSV: Ground Zeroes is sequel to MGS3 and MGS Peace Walker, while being prequel to all other Metal Gear Games.

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Retrospective

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is sequel to MGS 3, which is prequel to all of MGS series. I have not played MGS Portable Ops and I do not have any plans to so I will not do a retrospective on it, and I believe most people consider it as non-canon. With that said, this is chronologically the second game in the series. Peace Walker was originally made for the Playstation Portable back in 2010, then it was remastered for PS3 and Xbox 360 in the HD Collection in 2011. Once again, it was made by …… sigh….. Konami, but directed by Hideo Kojima!
