I forget exactly why, but a while back, Anthony and I procured most of the books in the Worlds of Power series. For those of you who are unfamiliar, they were a set of Nintendo videogame novelizations that came out during the 80s. As you can probably guess, they're bad, but enjoyable in a weird way. Reading one is like seeing an alternate game universe where things are just slightly off.

So, this month, I thought it would be cool to share the Worlds of Power version of the original Metal Gear's story with all of you. Of course, this is only an abridged version (to keep it from being several hours long), but we pretty much picked out all the best parts for you.

As always, you can watch the episode over at Gametrailers. See how author F.X. Nine's vision of the Metal Gear world compares to the game, and laugh as Solid Snack... er, Snake, does silly things!

What's Up: Metal Gear Rising is still the best, and Nintendo isn't infallible

I'm all by himself because Max went to Asia to pull the teeth out of impoverished children. I don't order old trading cards from the internet, but I did replay Metal Gear Rising, start re-watching my favorite TV show, and I'm bracing myself for angry Nintendo fans.more

Nendoroid Solid Snake comes with a low-poly head

I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later. The key features here, in my book, are the alterna...more
