Howdy folks! Believe it or not, I was recently invited to be a guest on the hottest Metal Gear podcast in the world, Metal Gear Mondays, and it went fantastically. The whole thing is about The Kojima Code, and we had a blast for several hours and had plenty of laughs. They had great questions, and I felt like they were cut from the same cloth as my dear readers, so I really expect you’ll enjoy it.
Check it out right now, and listen to their special book review episode too! I’m very thankful to them for shining a spotlight on my work, and I was delighted to find out that one of the hosts was a huge fan of my site since he was in high school! Crazy how that works, isn’t it?
After much anticipation, The Kojima Code is now becoming available for purchase! Get it in glorious Hardcover, Paperback, and digital formats from the biggest online retailers in the world, and Print-On-Demand in locations worldwide.

Q. Why can’t I find [version] at [retailer]?
The book is brand new, so not every retailer has gotten around to listing every version yet! Either shop around or wait for your preferred retailer to get the version you want. Apparently it’s normal for retailers to take up to a week or two to get each copy listed correctly.
Q. How much of the book deals with Metal Gear Solid 2?
This book is divided into two halves, and the entire second half deals with Metal Gear Solid 2! You’ve never seen analysis this in-depth!
Finally, I have some news to share with you all about the book! Very exciting!
I’ve received the first completed version of the book back from the publisher (in digital form), allowing me to review the styles, fonts, margins, headings, etc. and make revisions to the whole thing before it gets printed and distributed! I’ve also seen how the cover of the book is going to be designed, which I think strikes a wonderful balance between elegant, simple, and expressive. It’s amazing to see a professionally crafted document with my own analysis and words in there!
What does this mean? It means I can put the finishing touches on the book and send it back to the publisher for more revisions, and then it’s time to push my baby out into the world and see where it goes. Once the revisions are done and it’s time to promote the book for wider audiences I will of course share the information with everyone, but until then Patreon backers will all get more sneak-peaks, details and personal accounts of what it’s like to bring this creation to finalization. Yes, I’ll even be sharing some snippets with them, even at the lowest tier of support. Their generosity and encouragement has greatly spurred me on during the brutal Summer of setbacks and hurdles, and kept me producing content for the site, so thank you very much to all the readers and supporters. I want nothing more than to release my book to you guys and kick off a new era of Mr. Wolfe’s META GEAR.
I’ve been lucky to have Alexander Sylazhov as a guest contributor multiple times on this site. His writing reveals a facet of the Metal Gear community otherwise hidden from me, and shows me how other cultures and peoples can approach the subject matter in Metal Gear with a drastically different perspective. Recently I decided to ask Alexander for an interview, so that his fans and the general readership of this site can get to know the man behind these daunting essays a little more personally.
Check out the interview below and learn a bit about this mysterious character.
