Somewhere at a scale far greater than the game world, an elephant named Horton hears a tiny sound...
Hey, Skull Face, word is someone said you sound like an owl.
"Who said that? WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?"
I kind of hate Skull Face as a character. His story is really shoehorned into Boss's to give them history, his plan makes no sense, he burned down a whole hospital and killed everyone just to get to V and yet when he has him within his reach and hanging upside down, he lets him go.
But more than just that. The voice acting doesn't match. He looks like he should speak with a low sort of raspy voice but his voice actor has a smooth, eloquent voice that is so nice that it edges on annoying.
I am deeply ashamed as a person and individual that my time playing this game has given me full understanding of this line and why it exists.
It's a masterpiece. I skipped Sons and Revengence so I can't say I know the whole story but I love how I think about iPhone earbuds and soundtracks in general now; anachronisms that would appear in Kubrick films wouldn't be questioned but here I am wondering why a Cure song from the 90s was in the game, why I can be detected while guards don't seem to care that a horse goes up in a balloon and a mecha comes down in the same spot, and why lines like these were specifically created to create memes. I'll miss you Metal Gear
Also I made a comparison of Quiet's allergy to fabrics to Randy from Trailer Park Boys a few weeks ago and now I just got to the cheeseburger part..
I can see that, even only 25% in... SPOILERS AHEAD DON'T READ DOWN IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ MY STUPID THEORY BUT I WANNA GET IT OFF MY CHEST
It plays like a comic book reads vs. a novel. Lots of unnecessary characters and other things that are seemingly forgotten by the next chapter. And this includes our friend here, Skullface, who I think is just a combination of Volgin and The Fury from MGS3, like they were fused together or something in the explosion. I hope I'm wrong and surprised but I feel I'm right. And that's about as dumb as my True Detective theory, which I was also right about: Awesome show (especially the first season) but in the end, what the fuck.
I guess I don't mind it. Twist endings were what made MGS games great but that's been overdone almost as much as dream sequences are in TV shows. They were just new at the time for that medium. It's also why video game film adaptations never work. So, I dunno. I'm having fun doing whatever it is that I'm doing.. breaking little kids arms and fighting a man what's made of fire.
and punching goats putting them on balloons and still figuring out how to make my horse poop. Poor D-Horse must be super constipated after a month.
