Part 8: Magitek Gear Solid

I've retired from the RETURNERS. You're not my commander anymore, and I don't have to take orders from you or anyone else.

I'll be frank. A person very dear to me is being held hostage.

Who is it?

My neice. Meryl.

Colonel, it's Snake. I've successfully infiltrated the area.

Proceed to the target. You will need to obtain a uniform from one of the Missile Equipped Raider-Class Hyper Aerial Navigation Troopers to pass the first gate.

Got it.

Remember your mission. Infiltrate South Figaro. Rescue Meryl. Destroy Metal Gear!

Colonel, I have obtained the M.E.R.C.H.A.N.T uniform. Proceeding as planned.

Good job, Snake. Now look for the passcode to the secret tunnel. One of the guards in this area should know it.


Colonel, I've found some alcohol. Permission to party like it's 1999?

Permission GRANTED, soldier!


Colonel, the janitor is a happy drunk. Only problem is, he spilled too many passcodes. I gotta choose between "rosebud", "courage" and "failure" but I don't think the guy here is going to give me a second chance.

It shouldn't be too hard to figure out. We can probably scratch "rosebud", and I don't think anyone would use "failure" for a-

Yeah, it's always the one you least expect, right?

I suppose it- wait-






Snake? Snake? SNAKE!


what the hell was in that cider

Colonel, do you ever feel like you've been thrown into an alternate timeline because you did something you shouldn't have?

Nonsense, Snake. Look, about that password-

Don't worry. I've got it under control.



snake what did you just do

what was that noise

dry twig




I found the secret tunnel. Proceeding with infiltration stage 3.


fucking tunnels

where the hell am I

swear to god the next person who makes a crack about tunnel snakes-

-wait, I don't think that's what they meant when they said there was a light at the end.

Damn, I'm good.

Colonel, I've got visual.

Snake, be careful. Once you free Meryl, she can lead you to the caves where Metal Gear is hidden.

Can I save my game first?

Move out, soldier.



snake what are you doing


Snake,stealing is wrong.



Colonel, we're stuck.

I see the problem, Snake. You will need to utilize the top secret Central Location Obscuring Command Key system to proceed.

So basically I just wind it.

That is classified information.

(grmbl, grumble)


Where to next?

I know where Metal Gear is hidden, but you can't take it out with conventional weapons.

Then what?

Here you go.

I think I'm in love.

I'm flattered, but I don't kiss on the first date.

Who's talking about you? Come to papa, sweet thing. You and me are going to make explosions happen tonight, baby...




Use the rocket launcher.

The way it's supposed to be used!


I knew that.

Did you hear that, colonel? We're ready for pickup.



I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hara Kiri rock.


I need scissors! 61!

Oh, for fuck's sake.

Actual update coming tomorrow, probably.
