Unbelievable masterpiece: Metal Gear Cliff Notes part III is out now!!

What can I say about the work that Mr. Lázaro Martinez here?  Aside from literally laughing out loud at the jokes and feeling inspired to think seriously about just how crazy the original Metal Gear really was, I just have to be insanely jealous.  This is crazy, man.  He’s even got lips synchronized, facial expressions, and so much other extra goodies which I happen to know were not in the original script (but which are hilarious) I feel lucky to have been part of the first “Cliff Notes” video series.  That cameo of Ravi Singh is priceless too, this guy really knows how to do a likeness!!

Please do this guy a favor and share this with as many people as you can.  Make the thing spread around the internet like you know it should!

Google+ page

Most of you probably have a Google+ account but don’t do anything with it.  Well, now you do: swing by our new G+ page and tell me…

  1. Your favorite article on this site
  2. What you think about the future of the Internet and law enforcement
  3. Whether Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a good move

Do that, and we’ll be half way to creating a sense of community.  Not that I want a community that much, but hey, maybe you do?  Personally I enjoy the fact that you can simply upload a video.  Maybe that’s where I’ll upload my MGS2 review video when it’s done.

You can follow us on Twitter or blurt something out @meta_gear.  Social media stuff is often a lot more fluff than substance, with people echoing each other and never saying something new, so I don’t really fit in there, but at least I won’t be clogging up your feeds with nonsense right?  Oh, actually, I haven’t said this in a long time, but if you guys have some guest articles or content you want me to feature, let me know.  My email is metagearsolid@gmail.com.

And yeah, I could make custom domain email addresses and not have to use Gmail, but I like it better, so there.  Technology.

Pictures of victory

Remember when I won 10th place in the Kojima Productions Fan Art Contest by drawing a depressed-looking Chrisopher Walken dressed as Solid Snake?  They praised me on their podcast, and promised to send me some cool stuff.

Well the time has come, and the cool stuff is here!

Art contest shirt prize

Getting jealous?  The shirt is limited edition, so you’ll never get one.  Never.  And I didn’t even have to pay for it, they just gave it to me for being such a talented person.

Can you see the prize bandana? It’s camoflauged!  Is it a bandana?  I don’t even know, it’s just a big square piece of cloth once you unfold it.  I don’t care, it’s neat.

In case you forgot what I won this for, here’s the prize-winning artwork again!

Originally, Shinkawa was told to model Snake's face after Christopher Walken's.
