New Theory

Snake’s sneaking suit in Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes was really an alien symbiote that is slowly corrupting Big Boss. This is why he becomes Hitler 2.0 and this is why he goes by “Venom Snake” in The Phantom Pain.  It’s also why the Sneaking Suit is stupidly overpowered in Peace Walker.


It’s why I expect an emo dance scene in TPP

I am so amused by comments I see (on reddit) about how MGS5 must be the very last Snake game. 

Like, guys, no.  Just no.  ”Snake” is an iconic character.  There will never be an end to Snake games.  Canon allows Konami to bring back “Snake” back whenever they want, as a robot or a clone or a colony of sentient nanomachines or whatever. You will pry that cash cow out of their cold dead hands. 

The end of the Metal Gear Solid saga is the end of Ocelot’s story. 

You know, Ocelot?  The one and only character who appears in all five MGS games and has a coherent character arc that runs through them?  The one whose alignment we still have to question in MGS5, even though it’s a prequel, because fuck it — he’s Ocelot?  The genius mastermind who has orchestrated basically everything that happens in MGS aside from the events of MGS3, where he was just a tiny kitten learning the ropes (and still conned everyone)? 

Yeah that guy. 

I’m gonna miss him.
