>fangirls ACTUALLY BELIEVED that skullface was going to be a dark, mysterious yet alluring character who was simply misunderstood
>tfw he turned out to be a corny 80s movie villain
I can't even believe the name. It sounds like something an eight year old would create after watching too much He-Man or some shit. It's absurd and ridiculous, even by Metal Gear's cuhrayzee standards. Simply disappointing.
some fangirl's original character
can't make this shit up
SUCH A LUST FOR
I thought this but looking back on it now Kojima can't write a villain that isn't completely over the top and almost a parody of themselves. It didn't work so well for Skullface because all the allusions to him being Snake's equal and also all the dark stuff hinted at in GZ. This coupled with the fact that you never actually fight him sort of makes him a weak villain over all, but when he got a chance to shine ("MAJOR, I'M BURNING UP!", etc) he was pretty great.
MGS may be a series that has a lot of depth and great character moments and stories, however it also has shallow and silly parts. It's what makes the franchise unique. Remember, MGS3 may be totally heart wrenching and tense, it also features a villain who shoots electricity from his over emphasised muscled arms and a character who calls his unit by making cat noises.
>TODAY IS THE DAY WEAPONS LEARNED TO WALK UPRIGHT
Skullface was pretty good though, listening to the truth tapes I really understood his character. The tape between him and zero was amazing, zero was silly to think a man like skullface wouldn't do what he did
Solidus for greatest villain
>Have shit life
>Amazing at everything
>Plan to fix the world
>Try and get payback
>Killed by brat
He set into motion the entirety of MGS 2 and 4. He is a good guy.
Please someone link skullface self-insert fanfic.
I wanna see this shit.
>>tfw he turned out to be a corny 80s movie villain
Haha what? I would have LOVED if that was actually the case.
Instead hes a braindead retard with the worst plan in the series, extremely nonthreatening, and simply hardly present in the game at all to begin with.
Also reminder Venom never says a SINGLE thing to Skullface in the entirety of the game
Say what you will about Skullface, but he had some pretty memorable lines
>MAJOR, I'M BURNING UUUUUUUPPPPPPP
He was trying to hide that he was rife with parasites. Remember the eye thing Quiet and Code Talker did?
kojima has been the main writer of the series since fukushima left. when fuku san was still there he actually did the vast majority of the leg work, such as dialog writing, filling in the lore of the game, etc. Kojima is a history buff and took care of all of that stuff, and he came up with the general characters on the games.
Know who else was a huge Zorro fan as a kid?
Parasites are the new (old?) nanomachines.
They can do EVERYTHING
Need to cover your hideous exposed flesh and bone? Parasite skin!
Need a uniform on the go? Parasite uniform!
Need extra armor? Parasite armor!
Need to be able to levitate boulders to throw at your enemy? Parasite telekinesis!
Need to be able to turn random people into your zombie slaves? Parasite zombies!
Point is, in general parasites are a shit plot device in how they are used to handwave everything.
This is the funniest shit
its used to handwave things that don't need handwaving. Shit it even handwaves things in previous games
holy fuck how can a guy who made fortunes entire plotline
make mgs 4 and v
>I lavishly sign on the dotted line of both copies and hand one back to him. Folding the other, I place it my purse and take a large swig of my wine. I’m sounding so much braver than I’m actually feeling.
>“Does this mean you’re going to make love to me tonight, Christian?” Holy shit. Did
>I just say that? His mouth drops open slightly, but he recovers quickly.
>“No, Anastasia it doesn’t. Firstly, we both are demons. Secondly, our humanities won't return. and thirdly, me and you have no place to run, nowhere to hide."
>"Follow me, Anastasia" he uttered."Come, I want to show you my demon.”
>My mouth drops open. Fuck hard! Holy shit, that sounds hot, so hot.. But why are we talking about demons? I am mystified.
>In the large canyon where we came in, our jeep stops at a cavern that has been walled off by a gate.
>“You can leave anytime. The jeep is on stand-by to take you whenever you want to go, you can stay the night and go home in the morning. You have a choice, I didn't”
>“Just open the damn gate, Skullface.”
>He opens the gate and stands back to let the jeep in. I gaze at him once more. I so want to know what’s in here. Taking a deep breath I walk in.
>We enter a large cavern, and it feels like I’ve time-traveled back to the cold war.
> The lighting is soft, subtle. In fact, I can’t see the source, but it’s around the room.
> The walls and ceiling covered in girders giving a reinforced feel to the spacious room, and the floor is hard, hard concrete.
> An expansive iron grid suspended from the ceiling, eight-foot square at least, next to it was a scaffold holding all sorts of cargo containers, holding god knows how many different materials.
> But what dominates the room e a large, hulking metal behemoth. Hunched over like a robotic dinosaur.
> Under the behemoth's torso I can see missiles ready to be launched, and a very phallic looking flamethrower. It looks very cold, and ready to cause nuclear annihilation.
> I know it’s anything but, this must be Skullface’s version of soft and romantic.
> I turn, and he’s regarding me intently as I knew he would be, his expression completely unreadable. I walk further into the room, and he follows me.
> He suddenly puts his arm on his shoulder and looks into my eyes.
> "Just like you live because of me. He lives because of you." he whispers.
> He? Was he looking to have a threesome?
> "SHOW HER!" he shouts.
> A huge ball of flame appears and bursts from nowhere.
> The ball shapeshifts slowly.. and starts to form some kind of a horrifying demon.
>Just like you live because of me. He lives because of you." he whispers.
> He? Was he looking to have a threesome?
Its nice to know that if this was a movie, "Whoooooo" would be the new baneposting. It means that games ahve already surpassed television as an art.
If you ask me, Skull Face and Colonel Volgin should've been merged into one character, called Colonel Volgin.
How does it feel that
David Cage>Hideo Kojima
Cage for all the hate he gets made a game where David Bowie wrote original music for it and was a character in it while Kojima could only license some of his work and drop references to it all over the incoherent mess he called a plot.
Its the power of collective brainstorming in a field people care about. Just imagine what would be possible if we cared about something that matters.
