If the phrases “Fox-Die” “Les Enfants Terrible” and “The Patriots” don’t mean anything to you then the chances are that, yes, you have escaped the La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo’s malign influence.
On the 12th of June 2008 we’re about to have a simultaneous world-wide release of the last in a series of games that has influenced, and mobilised, countless world-wide fans. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will be unleashed, and we’ll see the return of Liquid Ocelot, Vamp, Meryl, and Otacon. Oh, and Solid Snake. And sadly Raiden. You can put that boy in a ninja suit, give him a HF-Katana, and have him deflect thousands of knives but all I hear when I look at him is him and Rose whining at each other. Metal Gear Solid 2 sparked hilarious fan-boy rage and I’m only one of a very small number who hope that it’s Raiden who shoots himself instead of Snake – we base that hope on the premise that Hideo Kojima released footage of Snake fighting someone before the release of MGS2 and in game it was Raiden who did the fighting.
I know lots of people in games production right now who are planning to buy and who have bought a PS3 to play that game alone. And they’ve taken the 12th and 13th off work to do it. I plan to join them.
So how to warm up your PS3 before Snake Day? Grab a copy of Haze is how!
Only Snake is the True Hero.
