@Shino: I know, it sucks regarding Konami.
I still (probably foolishly) hope their hiring for more Metal Gear link I posted recently is an MG 1-2 remake, but it probably is damn pachinko.
I've heard claims if Konami does more MGS, Kojima would at least supervise, but if they're parting ways, then how...?
Like I wrote after we beat the game, the ONLY more Metal Gear I'd ever want is
MG 1-2 HD remake with Hayter as Solid and Sutherland as Venom and Big Boss. Other than that, the MGS series is perfectly finalized in my mind.
Hell, if Quiet is still alive, and if they wanted to go a dark route, I could actually see them having David (Solid) fight/kill her at the start of an MG1 remake, just to make the old fans hate him.
Regarding Quiet, I think
although the actresses/singers (Bruke's the iDroid
) and the developers mentioned that Quiet's Song is as if she died, we don't know for sure if that's how Kojima himself or other staff saw things. I think the ambiguity of her leaving is important, since a lot of the game's themes come down to "there are no facts, only interpretations". (Especially with Venom/Medic!)
Of course, maybe this is a topic that Kojima will eventually give his two cents on, since Quiet's so popular (for various reasons).
But eh. Outer Heaven fan-comic = my headcanon, unless we get official thoughts (Kojima himself) otherwise.
This topic reminds me. I've searched to no avail on Internet land, so are there any amazing fanarts out there of
Big Boss, The Boss, and the rest of the "1st generation" cast (Paz, Chico, Ocelot, Venom, etc) reuniting in death? Could be amazingly beautiful if done right.
Something I've wanted to find ever since we beat TPP.
I've also love to see an MG1-based fanart of Solid fighting Venom...That would be just cool!
Too bad I can't draw, otherwise I wouldn't have to just hope for such great ideas
If you can't tell, this series the past month has become a serious emotional investment for me.
