EXP Podcast #273: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Debrief

Image from Konami
Blame it on the war economy, blame it on the nanomachines, or blame it on our secret admiration of mullets; the bottom line is that Jorge and I found ourselves sneaking through Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.  It's a fascinating game in both positive and negative ways and we take the opportunity to think about Ground Zeroes and what it says about the series as a whole.  Topics discussed include bullet time, the harlem globetrotters, and foot textures; all things that Hideo Kojima undoubtedly has strong opinions about.  As always, we're looking forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments!

    Not the first in the Metal gear Canonical timeline as you called it. That would be
    Metal gear solid 3:Snake Eater.

    They haven't put out anything Meatal Gear since 2008.
    Oops again.
    Actually Mgs:Peacewalker was released after mgs 4 ;The 2008 game you referred to. Peacewalker is canonical to squish that rebuttal before it starts.
    Good show though.

    Also No cardboard box in ground zeroes although it was an Amazon preorder bonus in Japan.
