Did a search and didn’t find a Metal Gear specific thread (there’s a MGS4 dedicated one, but that’s about it). Thought I’d start up one because Metal Gear kicks ass :rock: Just so everyone knows, this thread assumes you know the jist of Metal Gear and won’t be mad if they read a potential spoiler.
To start the thread off:
I was talking to a friend today at lunch about usual videogame stuff when we got on the subject of Metal Gear. Both of us are big fans and know the overall canon pretty well. Well, we got to talking about Twin Snakes, the Gamecube remake of Metal Gear Solid and how it was kind of a missed opportunity. Nothing really added besides new music and graphics and even lacked stuff from the original (VR Missions). I then brought up that shortly after the game was released, Konami said they could do the remake better (then Nintendo owned second party Silicon Knights handled Twin Snakes).
Nothing ever came of that however.
I was thinking that now would probably be a good time to go back to MGS and remake it right. With MGS4 out, putting an end to nearly all of the plot holes from the entire Metal Gear saga, I thought it would be kinda cool to add to MGS with that known information. Like behind the scenes stuff that was going on at the same time as the Shadow Moses Incident.
Stuff they could cover:
-Soldius Snake orchestrating the events with the Patriots oversight.
-More insight into Revolver Ocelot’s secret agent shit (working for liquid, while secretly working for Solidus, while secretly working for the Patriots, while secretly working for himself).
-How Liquid assembled his Fox Hound team.
-What went on when Ocelot was torturing SIGINT aka the DARPA chief.
-An actual glimpse of Decoy Octopus in his original form?
-Maybe a flashback story of Big Boss finding and training Sniper Wolf.
-Flashback explaining Gray Fox being a guinea pig for ParaMedic (she took his remains and made him into the Cyborg Ninja) and later killing her at EVA’s request.
That’s all I can really think about right now. Discuss!
