Here is the most interesting and supported analysis of Metal Gear Solid 2’s story line that I’ve seen. It’s extra fascinating to me as it deals with topics that I have grown an appreciation for lately: emergence, artifical life, and evolution. Strangely, I purchased one of the books cited five days ago (The Selfish Gene). It’s just nice to see a review of MGS2’s story that doesn’t consist of “wtf!?!?” and “Raiden sucks!!”
Things have been very busy lately, so I haven’t been doing much in terms of what I normally try to do. I’m slowly, but enjoyably, pacing through Metroid Prime, but I haven’t even touched Splinter Cell yet — which I’ve had for two weeks now. I wish I could sit down and relax for a day or two, but with the impending move, along with everything else, I have no time for that. And when things might seem to settle, the holidays will hit… bah humbug. I hate this time of the year.
