In this episode @NightFox and myself explore the indelible link between Metal Gear Solid and THE SUPERNATURAL where we discuss the residual hauntings of Shadow Moses and beyond, Ocelot’s possession, Snake’s Near Death Experience, the Symbology of the Serpent, and much more in this first part of a double trouble two part episode of THE SNAKEPIT!
So what exactly is The Snakepit? A shocking and outrageous exposé of the beloved cult phenomenon that is Metal Gear Solid through the eyes of two long time fans, it’s how we discuss Metal Gear amongst each other, and boy is it ever going to get weird. We hope you’ll tune in, drop out, and join us in our journey to the heart of darkness that is everything Metal Gear.

Great topic, MGS 1 - 3 lent itself to supernatural ideas and themes so well and naturally, and in a pretty fun way too. Psycho Mantis reading
your memory card is a really fun example of that kind of haunted digital media which you thought was possible as a kid lmao. Will listen ASAP!
1-3 are really where we focus here too. It’s honestly the cherry on top of the series as far as I’m concerned. I hope that comes across in this love letter to Kojima’s fascination with the supernatural. For as amazing as MGS is, it wouldn’t be so beloved if it weren’t for all the weirdness and paranormal connection, at least in my opinion.
Really great episode here; MG is so intertwined with the supernatural I just sort of forgot that’s a thing that could be discussed on its own. I had the first episode on my mental watchlist and forgot to listen too so it made a great double feature while I bashed zombies in Project Zomboid.
Well you probably can’t tell because you’ve been doing it a while, but it comes as no surprise that two of the oldest and most active members on the frontrunning discussion board for Metal Gear Solid might be good at discussing Metal Gear Solid. I mean to you it’s just little discussions, but to anyone random that may find it, it’s a cool window into a series they’ve only just started getting into, and one that is notoriously “complex” according to many. Keep at this because once the YouTube side of things is sorted out it will inevitably gain traction, The Algorithm (PBUH) loves podcasts.
Rather spookily I have dug out my old Bluetooth speaker that I never used to keep me going in the car so I have finally listened. Bravo! Top job! Shall we be expecting more sessonal episodes in the time to come, perchance speaking about Naked Snake’s thoughts on Father Christmas, or the feelings that are brought up for Solid Snake in Winter time of cold, hard snow finding its way into his groin through his sneaking suit on Shadow Moses?
