This was great. I think it might be the best one in the series.

I'm just glad we finally have Big Boss and Kaz as Mick Jagger and Bowie doing Dancing in the Streets,

That was excellent guys. Some if it was subtle enough that I didn't even notice some of the meme references the first time through. Also, nice use of the 3D animation. Didn't expect that at all.

Feel free to add me, though I rarely play online games that aren't LittleBigPlanet.

If you must, here's a cleaner version of it:

That scene made me loose weight, literally. I can't believe how much Jagger moves around! He just can't stand still for a fucking second! Why does he wiggle his ass so much, is he Meryl?
Even if I was using the original clip as reference, and in slow motion, I just couldn't understand what the fuck he was doing with his body, up to the point in which I just had to start standing there in front of the computer, mimicking Jagger, trying to figure it all the hell out, and then my father came into the room. He stood still at the doorframe, looking at me with this "you're not my son anymore" look on his face.

But it was so absurd that I had to do it once you suggested it to me Tongue

That was the idea, a lot of references can be added but I didn't want to be too "in the face" about it.

Everyone should just shut up for a second.

RE: Cliff Notes on Metal Gear PART III - Lazaro Martinez
This whole thing really is the best Metal Gear parody I've ever seen. I remember someone comparing the first one to Metal Gear Awesome, which I thought totally sucked. All the little references to the games in this is just so great. Since I actually beat Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, I really got all the little jokes. I was laughing so much at the part when Snake bombs Metal Gear's legs since that was so stupid. That part made no sense whatsoever. Why the hell would it matter what order they get bombed in? I know that there are probably lots of references in there that I also didn't get, but reading all the stuff at Ravi's site sure helped since I got the joke with the blue screen of death and everything.
And I was really impressed with your animation in this video. I wasn't sure at first what to think of it, but it added a lot of charm to it.

Thank you guys for your support. As Ravi told me: "this was quite an experience". And indeed it was. This has gotten us closer to knowing how difficult making one of these games is. You kind of figure it out, watch the "making of" videos, but you never quite get the chance to experience it yourself, so, after making this video, and having collaborated with such nice and cool people, I feel grateful and respectful towards them guys, and Kojima and his awesome staff for working so hard so that we can have fun with the result of their efforts. And I also feel thankful towards you, guys, because if it hadn't been for your patience and support, this would have never been possible.

And now, I'd like to share some goodies with you Wink

Here's the original sketch that I did for Snake:
[Image: solidsnakesketch_zpscc285db6.jpg]
He looked a little rougher than the final result, but I kind of toned his facial features a bit down, because he's supposed to be younger than the way we see him in MGS, not the other way around.

The original games are known for having tons of small details and hidden references. I wanted to stay true to the games to some degree, so I added a lot of these myself. I want to share some of the most obscure with you:

-The design of the radio is kind of a remake of the original transceiver, so the basic layout is the same, but I added some elements from the NES version, such as the needle based indicator. Not the only thing to come from the console version, though: most of the elements are based on real military radios... except for the pair of NES controller ports on the lower right side!

-Kind of hard to see, but the design of the electronic locks next to the doors is comprised of the actual doors from the original game (but turned sideways) and the keypad from the radio in MG2 Solid Snake.

-Ravi and I appearing in a cameo as hostages tries to acknowledge the fact that, in real life, we weren't able to spend more time in the Soup, nor post new content more often, because we were "tied up" by work, studies...

-Kind of obvious, but Coward/Dirty Duck is modeled after infamous porn celebrity Ron Jeremy. When I was redrawing Erim's design, I though "Who's disgusting to look at and would copulate with anything that moves? Super Hornio Bros!".

-This one is reaaaally obscure and hard to figure out: In the basement of Building #3, there are these two pipes that run through the ceiling: red and blue. That's a reference to one of the few (and also pretty obscure) improvements that The Twin Snakes made over MGS: right next to Metal Gear REX control room, there were these two pipes, one with hot steam and the other one with cold gas running through them. The thing is that, should you shoot them, you could use the released vapors to heat or freeze the PAL key, so you could input the pal code without all the backtracking. I though that, if REX needed hot and cold gas, Metal Gear TX-55 would as well.

There are many, many, many more to cite. I could keep doing so if you want to.

Also, I need your help guys. I sent the video to a spanish videogame related blog, similar to the now defunct 1up.com, and managed to get a sidenote in one of their pieces of news (in spanish, at the end: http://www.vidaextra.com/vidaextra/vx-en...and-magic ) but I'm kind of out and don't really know which blogs are popular now, so that we could send them the link. I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me of any.

Also, do you guys think we should upload this to newgrounds? (With a link to the site, that is)

I just have to ask, is there some bigger joke with the car being part of Metal Gear? Or is it just supposed to be a ridiculous visual gag?

I'll let this picture answer to your question:

[Image: 1538791_688286361201583_1446663890_n.jpg]

This is a Renault 4L (or Quatrelle) that my father and I happen to own (no Li'l Nuker vanity plate, though). Everyone in town knows the car. A friend of mine wrote in my Facebook wall: "I wasn't sure if you had animated all of this yourself untill I saw your red quatrelle"
Back in the day we bougth it, it was considered a lame car (because it had kept the same design from the early sixties to the early nineties), but now it is considered a cult classic.
American audicencies may remember the white one that showed up in "Romancing the Stone" (1982), which they used to perform all kinds of crazy stunts.

Also, I'm a fan of cartoon series Megas XLR, so I found the idea of putting my lame car on top of a world threatening nuclear robot funny. If I ever decide to redo Metal Gear 2 (Should planets line up or something), I guess I would put my other lame car (a Skoda favorit) on top of Metal Gear D.
