Have you seen Fox's Terra Nova? It's a show about a family that travels back in time to prehistoric Earth through a fracture in time to save the human race. Steven Spielberg is an executive producer, and there's special effects and dinosaurs and sh*t, so it could have been something neat. But, it's not. It's terrible. Still, it's watchable in that kind of train-wrecky way. Oh, and there's this.

Character Commander Nathaniel Taylor is Solid Snake to me. Metal Gear Solid's Old Snake, to be precise. I can't un-see it, and I can't stop giggling every time he makes an appearance. The clothes, the hair, everything. He's like an Old Snake that exfoliates and uses moisturizers. 

It's a bit of a stretch, but once you think of the rebellious, headstrong character Mira as Resident Evil 5's Sheva, you can't un-see. Of course, actress Christine Adams is lovely and has better hair, and Sheva was just sort of weird looking and wore too much jewelry (sorry, Capcom), so it's not a perfect match. But, in some episodes, Mira is wearing Sheva's clothes, shooting guns, and running from monsters. And I laugh.

I will continue watching this turd of a show to see how Old Snake and Sheva get along. Hit the jump to see some good examples of what I'm talking about.

Hollywood loves the E3 trailer for Metal Gear Solid V

It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...more

The 5 best parts from the E3 demo of MGS V: The Phantom Pain

Sure, you could go watch the whole half-hour demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we saw at E3, but then you don't get to look at my pretty face. Also, an animal shows up at the end of this video! Can you guess what it is? more

Metal Gear Solid V's E3 showing minus the hour of fluff

Konami posted its behind closed doors E3 demo that was the basis for my E3 preview and broken cynicism. But it did so as part of a two hour long thing with interviews and cuts away from the action. This is the straight, uninterrupted gameplay. And it's worth watching again, isn't it? more
