Today is the tenth anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty in Japan. A few weeks ago during the 13th, the tenth anniversary of Sons of Liberty's release in North America, I announced a video I was working on called The Reality of Metal Gear Solid 2. Today, I bring you that video.
Also, thanks to all the folks who watched this with us at midnight on TinyChat. Loads of fun. Especially the guy with the video of the guy lighting his fart on fire. Oh and thank Dwayne Billie for convincing me not to scrap the whole project and just write another article.
Ten years ago today, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was released in North America. For those of you who don't know, while I thought Metal Gear Solid was cool, it was not until Sons of Liberty that I actually became a fan of the series. Without Sons of Liberty, there probably would not have been The Snake Soup.
With that said I planned on releasing a video I've been slowly working on titled The Reality of Metal Gear Solid 2 today but it's not finished. It should be finished by the 29th which is the 10th anniversary of Sons of Liberty in Japan. So that's not too bad, right?
Relax guys, it's not like I say Peace Walker took a few steps backwards from Snake's Revenge or anything like that. This was supposed to be up last month but I didn't have time until recently to polish it up. I'm working on something for November. Might be cool. I'd highly recommend following us through Twitter or Facebook until then...
We're having a little fun in our forums. While we do that I decided I'll do some maintenance and beefing up of security behind the scenes as well. Here's what you need to know:
Any new registration, posts and threads starting now until an unknown date (hopefully within a day or two) will be lost. You can join our forums right now, I definitely will not discourage that, but please note that whatever you do will be gone and you will have to re-register.
If any new Metal Gear news comes up I will post it. However, any responses may get lost.
Our domain, thesnakesoup.org may stop working. If this happens use snakesoup.com. You will have to switch back eventually though as after we're done with thesnakesoup.org we will have to do work on snakesoup.com.
That's it. When things go back to normal, this message will self-destruct and I'll pretend nothing happened.

a vast majority of Metal Gear games are either unrated, or rated "M" by the ESRB, for
