As fans will know, Metal Gear Solid isn’t afraid to embrace the crazy-ass. Whether you’re climbing an endless ladder to dramatic musical accompaniment, having a quick wank in a locker while Otacon looks on (and earning the wordplay-tastic Snake Beater trophy for doing so) or taking a photo of the steam rising from a guard’s pee (there’s an in-game reason for doing so, that’s not just a pervy fetish thing), anything can happen.
We spent an hour in the third game hunting alligators with a knife, stabbing them in the face and eating them. We’ve no idea what point we’re making with all this, but consider it made right there.
Anywho, yes. Eccentric would probably be a fair word to describe Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima. Also, creator of weaponized horseshit, but that’s four words.
Destructoid brings us this charming tale this week, from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The earliest teasers of the game showed Snake adding horse riding to his resume, but we had no idea how useful our ol’ equine buddy would turn out to be. For starters, enemy jeeps are no match for its huge turds. Hit the link and watch as they spin out Mario Kart style after hitting a bump/dump in the road.
