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!
