  Metal Gear Solid is a series known for the dramatastic. And for the complete batshit. And for combining the two and adding a dash of theatrics and a ten-year long cutscene. And possibly for starting sentences with ‘and.’ That one’s unconfirmed.  

My point is, there’s a lot of standout weirdness in each one. If you’ve ever held up a guard by distracting them with a strategically-dropped porno magazine, or played around with that now-iconic cardboard box, you’ll know that. For me, though, the nuttiest of all is Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

From bee-man bosses, to climbing endless ladders while dramatic music plays and your ass shimmies about in a homo-erotic kind of way, Snake Eater had it all. Hunting an alligator by stabbing it repeatedly in the ass until it dies, and then eating it? That’s just a normal day in this game. Even so, one thing Snake Eater never did was spontaneously transform itself into a slot machine. Until now.

Konami just can’t get enough of these pachinko shenanigans lately. Big names like Silent Hill are being turned into branded arcade machines, for whatever damn reason. The latest, as I say, is Metal Gear 3, and… well, words fail me, but it looks like this:
