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.
Look forward to more updates soon!
We can now see that #GamerGate is the true turning point. It’s where the neofeminist, neoliberal establishment went too far and got too lazy in their corruption, and accidentally provoked a grassroots cultural backlash which ultimately exposed the modus operandi of the entire leftist agenda for the millennial generation. It wasn’t Alex Jones, Mike Cernovich, Stefan Molyneux, or Milo Yionnaopplosujlus.
Let’s revisit the topic of Path of Exile for a moment, shall we?
I created META GEAR SOLID.org on December 25th, 2008. Today I change the name.
The original name was chosen to help people remember the URL. Aside from being one of the only URL variations of “Metal Gear Solid” that wasn’t already registered, it spoke to the nature of my analysis and got some positive feedback. Other names I considered were embarrassingly stupid in hindsight, and I think it was the right move to make the name the same as the address. But it’s been five years, and I think it’s time to give people a better shorthand.
“MR. WOLFE’S META GEAR” may not roll off the tongue, but I don’t expect people to use it in full anyway. It can easily be divided into two parts that work better depending on what you want to refer to: refer to the website itself as “Meta Gear”, and myself as “Mr. Wolfe”. The address will stay the same, and if I come up with something I think is better for the title, I’ll just go ahead and change it again. I’m not running a company brand with merchandise or anything, so it doesn’t affect things anyway.
I also added links on the CLASSIC SITE page to the “Old News” sections that I used back before all this fancy CSS and blog engines and whatnot. Thanks to all the readers I’ve gained over the years, and please keep spreading the word if you like what you find.
PS4’s superiority is already unquestionable in comparison; there is no more debate. But you might not realize just how dirty Microsoft’s policies have become…
I happened to notice “Metal Gear Solid 5” in the Twitter trends this morning, and soon found myself reading very vague, and very possibly fake rumors. Here’s the news piece.
The unverified picture prominantly [sic] displays a logo for Metal Gear Solid 5 along with the phrase ‘Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavors (OGRE)’ which could be a replacement for the ‘Tactical Espionage Action’ tagline the series has carried thus far.
Kojima wanted to have an open-world environment ever since Snake Eater, which was supposed to be “seamless” initially, with weather patterns and a day/night cycle; players were supposed to get lost in the jungle and need to use landmarks for navigation; hunting and sneaking would be more important than ever. The trailer even made reference to Grand Theft Auto, suggesting that the games would be comparable. Basically, compared to Kojima’s original ambitions we got a can of sardines. This would be the full feast.
This may be Kojima’s opportunity to make his old dream a reality. If “OGRE” does stand for “Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavors” — which for the record I hope it does not, because nothing sounds lamer than the word “endeavors” when describing a game — then it could be Metal Gear Solid 5 after all. How on earth this ties into raising a family? Well, Big Boss did have some hand in raising Solid and Liquid Snake, at least…
Do I believe the leaked rumor? Actually, I sort of do. It would even fit with his old statement about how it could end up as career suicide if it went wrong, which I surmised involved retconning the Metal Gear series. Or maybe I’m dumb!
EDIT: Okay, so I’m way behind in the times here. So there are a couple of fuzzy screenshots, not just one, and there is a lot more news about MGS5 being said already. I am dumb!
Have you been paying attention to the news lately?
President Johnson: The Patriots — even I don’t know who the actual members are. Are they financial, political, or military leaders? No one knows who the Patriots really are. Even my instructions come from a cut-out. All I’ve been told is that every key decision is made by a group of twelve men known as the Wisemen’s Committee.
Is Kojima a prophet or what?
