Alright guys. I think we've discovered the actual reason Dan Ryckert dislikes anime. Patlabor is to blame.

Fuck that Cyborg Ninja fight hard. In retrospect it is actually a cool fight but at the time it seemed real tedious.

Can't wait till he gets to Sniper Wolf. Definitely the hardest boss in the game.

OF COURSE DAN RYCKERT HAD DRINKS IN HIS HOUSE WITH A RUSSIAN MOBSTER WHO REGALED DAN WITH STORIES ABOUT HIS KILLS. OF COURSE HE DID.

So many beautiful moments in this episode. Also, the codec screen face cam for Drew and Dan is PERFECT. I hope they keep that up.

Oh, and I don't think I will ever tire of hearing Dan's awesome/highly dangerous endless well of stories.

So Dan, if Naomi can use the nanomachines to stop Snake from being able to pull a trigger, does that mean he's never in control of his own body? He just thinks he's doing all this himself, but his actions are really being controlled by Campbell and Naomi, or the player? Are you not playing as Solid Snake, but as some anonymous drone operator controlling this clone super-soldier?

I haven't played this in over 10 years and it's now blowing my mind up.

Amazing! So good. Really excited to see them struggle on further.

Anyone freak out because they thought Drew kept unequipping his rations? I think when Cyborg Ninja talks the subtitles force it away. Because I did.

Before i start watching this i want to say from the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you for the both of you for making this happen! Metal Gear Solid is my all-time favorite game and i have a real soft spot for it's incredible non-sense, and watching these videos reminds me so much of the great/awful/weird/moving times i had with this game when i was 14.

Thank you Giantbomb, thank you Drew and Dan.

I hope these come more frequently in 2 hours installments, because this is going to take forever.

I'm not too far in the video, but Drew's being far too cautious with guard patrol patterns, making things harder than they need to be. He's definitely picking up a lot of the mechanics though, improving each episode.

Edit: Also bosses would be way easier if @drewbert had full rations/health before going in. Enjoying the series though!

Hahaha Dan Ryckert. Doesn't know that space has no air. But drops references about the Marquis De Sade. Hilarious.

Dan was just kind of wrong with the analogue/dpad stuff. game was designed for the dualshock! think about all the controller vibration!!!

Wow all the times I have played this I don't ever remember getting a gas mask. But I also played this game like a survival horror game. Never took risks.

Dan has a mafia story? when did he tell that?

Seriously though, he should really check out Patlabor 2: The Movie. If he likes the crazy political/military based drama that the MGS series has then that movie should be right up his alley.

So the clips were from Patlabor? I should check it out sometime. And I thought that Dan may like Ghost in the Shell because it has a mix of military, politics, and philosophy that's somewhat similar to MGS.

Can you not hit Triangle to speed through dialogue in this one? 'Cause that would really help with some of those annoying Codec bits.

Nope, that's in 2.

Also I was hoping Drew would fart around with the Nikita to long that it explodes from running out of Fuel and not knowing what was going on.

You actually can control the missiles in first-person with the triangle button in this game. If I recall, MGS2 forces the first-person view.

I don't think those scenes were from Patlabor. At least I don't remember those scenes happening. Patlabor doesn't really go into the flying tech for their mechs (except for very rare exceptions).

Those scenes were from Policenauts. The game Dan mentioned, which Kojima had previously worked on.

I love this new feature so much. It might very well be the best thing since the P4 ER from five years ago.

You'd think Dan would be fan of anime considering he loves MGS.

MGS is an anime, Dan. It's the most anime. It has pretty boys. It has the nerdy plucky guy. It is the animes.
