Since I’m picking up the odds and ends of the site’s printed content, I figured I might as well post the Metal Gear Solid 2 article from Year One, Vol. 2. Despite having been written a few months ago for a recent compilation book, I deliberately crafted it in a sort of retro style; it’s patterned after the older articles that appeared in the book, full of digressions and flippant nonsense. So if it makes you angry, please understand that was the intent! Or at least, emulating a style that might make you angry was the intent. Given the game in question, it’s all so suitably meta, huh? Gosh. I’m gonna pretend that was a deliberate choice.
And yes, some of the images herein are from Substance rather than Sons of Liberty. Go with the flow. Around here we’re all about the feel of things, baby, not the letter of the law.
By the way, my host recently relocated all the site’s files to a new server. Everything seems to have made the transition in proper order, but if you notice anything wonky, lemme know. Surprisingly, the site seems to be holding up fine in the wake of yesterday’s Penny Arcade link, which generously sent roughly 10,000 people here… all of whom went directly to a massive article with about half a megabyte of embedded images. So, I guess our host host is doing something right.
