Help 1UP Assemble the Ultimate Podcast Tribute to the Metal Gear Series
For the past 25 years, the Metal Gear series has defined the stealth action genre, as each successive entry gave fans more tools and sneaking abilities to conquer the harrowing nuclear threats present in Solid Snake’s world. But there’s more to Snake’s adventures than explosions and Bruckheimer-esque production values. Each entry also encouraged players to experiment and uncover dozens of hidden easter eggs. It’s obvious that series director Hideo Kojima has always had Hollywood-level ambitions for his games — especially after the series successfully transitioned from 2D to 3D — but his work has done so much more than celluloid ever could by constantly challenging the barriers between the player and the TV.
We decided to challenge ourselves to come up with another way to celebrate Metal Gear’s 25th anniversary and that’s where you come in. 1UP wants to put together an ambitious podcast tribute to celebrate Metal Gear. This special episode will feature guests appearances along side user recorded commentary on the series. We’re asking our readers to head over to Soundcloud.com and record a 90-second Metal Gear testimonial. Tell us what you love about the series? You can focus on a specific moments, or look at the series as a whole.
