Readers, I know you’re waiting for the next installments of MGS4: Sold Out and MGS2: A Complete Breakdown. I’m working on part 6 of A Complete Breakdown again, and progress is good. It’s a bit of an odd piece, but we’ll all struggle through it I’m sure.
I also want to go back and finish my MGS4 analysis — don’t think I’ve forgotten. With Metal Gear Solid V on the way, and the HD Collection released not long ago, it feels like a good time to put some more of my crazy theories out there.
If you have any contributions of your own (a lot of you said you’d like to in the Site Survey!) you can now come directly to me by emailing metagearsolid [at] gmail.com. Comics, articles, videos, audio recordings — send them my way, if you want to get them put on the site. A few notes, however:
- Stuff that’s ready to be published will naturally be published faster
- You should have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish. I’ll give notes if I have any suggestions, and try to help the process
- Don’t be afraid to do something different than what I usually do. You can examine aspects of the series that I’m completely neglecting, or even talk about areas of culture that I don’t, as long as they’re relevant somehow to the general themes of this place.
Sit tight, and if you haven’t read the first 5 epic parts of my MGS2 analysis, what are you waiting for?
I’ve created a quick little survey. Go here and fill it out!
Update: Survey results have been pouring in already, so thank you. I’ll continue to read them as they come. A permanent link will be put in the sidebar for future reference, too!
Thankfully, results have been consistent with my expectations; which is encouraging because it means I’m not totally out of touch with what you guys are interested in. All your suggestions are great, it’s the kind of stuff I’d love to get around to as well, so we’ll see how many of them I can do yet!
For those who’d like to do news hunting:
I hereby demand that you USE THIS IMPORTANT LINK to submit your suggestions, which I will certainly read, probably keep in mind for future writings, and possibly even bring up in “News Roundup”-style posts. Basic instructions are on the page, and I look forward to having my own gang of snitches working nonstop in my service. The more the merrier, I say!
For those who’d like to submit original content such as articles, comics and videos/animations:
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you’d like to contribute, how you’d like your stuff to be published/linked, and who you are as a person. I’ll reply when I can, and we’ll go from there. Sorry it’s not more convenient but hopefully getting your stuff on the site is a worthwhile tradeoff! I look forward to seeing your cool shit and getting to know the talented, opinionated people who’ve been reading my own work for a while. There’s no hurry, so keep that email in mind for when you’re ready.
