They'll play deep into the terrorism angle, explicitly as it applies to the history of proxy warfare. We already know this is gonna be Snake's revenge story and have seen what appears to be the MSF, which has became its own nation at the end of Peace Walker, in the process of radicalizing (purging weakness from the ranks, readiness to torture own members), but its placed historically to parallel the events of Iran-Contra and the revelation that the CIA sponsored attacks to weave fear into a population and destabilize its local government.

Because behind this is the fight between Snake Military might and Zero's social controls (even if the latter isn't getting screen time),it will probably use the ideas of language that the e3 trailer revealed to counter both: the dangers of ideological echochambers in the first and idea manipulation in the second.

I love it for the most part. I think it feels better than Bayo 1 overall, looks nicer, has a tighter pacing and, thankfully, recycles itself less.

The boss fights are a drag that rely too much on their spectacle. The flying sequences all just take way to long and hurts their replayability.

I think that Asura's Wrath set the bar too high for absurd battles and that's a bummer, since Bayo 1 kinda got that ball rolling in the first place.

Olga, since he'll have to have wrapped his head around the controls and first-person aiming early on.

@thatpinguino: You're absolutely right about that one, my attempt to provide context was blinding me. Quick! Delete your post so no one else notices! Do i need to add i'm joking? Meh. I'll do it anyway.

@thatpinguino Thanks for taking the time to check it out! I realize the longer an essay like this is the less people will be inclined to read it, but I really wanted to get at the hart of why CT is so special. So many of its small decisions look simple and straight forward, but that's one of its marvels considering what it was trying to do was actually quite complex.
