On this episode of Backlog Busting Project, Wes Harrington and Randy Isbelle once again keep their focus on only one game, because it is quite the doozy. Their adventure through the Metal Gear series hits the climax with the 2008 Playstation 3 title, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
Did they enjoy watching the movie’s worth of storyline unfold? Is an older Solid Snake the best version of Snake? What about the other characters? And doesn’t it still hold up as well as they remember it? Just some of the answers the two Metal Gear heads provide on this episode.
