Campbell: What or what?! Well, you have to make your way somehow. But make sure no one sees you.

a snake: There is another thing. There is a leaderboard at the back of the room; Apparently past weeks Box Art Brawl featured something called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4: Turtles in Time. Colonel, what’s going on?

Campbell: I have no idea. what do you say?

a snake: It says North America and Europe won the vote with 76%, followed by Japan with 24%. Is this FoxHound business?

Campbell: FoxHound disbanded after the Shadow Moses, Snake incident. You must know this.

a snake: Harrar. Wait – there is one more thing. The leaderboard has changed. It now displays something called “Metal Gear: Ghost of Babylon‘…Metal Gearer?! Colonel, is there a new Metal Gear prototype I’m not aware of?!

Campbell: It’s possible. We may have to wait and see what the vote is on this one to decide our next move. Who are the participants?

a snake: North America, Europe and Japan. It’s a three-way fight.

Campbell: Show. Well, stay where you are now, snake. If you need, you can contact me at Codec. Frequency 140.85. When you want to use the codec, press the select button.

a snake: Colonel, I’m in front of North American box art.

Campbell: Excellent, snake. Age hasn’t slowed you down a bit. Now what do you see?

a snake: I see, ah… I.

Campbell: Are you sure this isn’t another Big Boss clone?

a snake: No, that’s me. I look too handsome to be anyone else. Looking at the design, it appears to have been drawn by an artist known as Yoji Shinkawa. He captured my features well; His skills may have been enhanced by nanomachines.

Campbell: could be. I love this design too, but we need to see others to make an informed decision.

a snake: I understood you.

liquid snake: BROTHERRRRRRR!

a snake: liquid!

liquid snake: It’s been too long, brother! I just fell; I wanted to share my thoughts on this particular design here from Europe. I have to say, even though it shows an inferior version of Big Boss, I love it, all of it! Who is this woman with you though?

a snake: Sergeant Kristen Jenner. “Chris” for short. She helped me through the Galuade incident in Metal Gear: Ghost Babel.

liquid snake: Ghost of Babylon? Fucking – is this even canon?

a snake: No, but I don’t expect you to understand anyway. It was made for a system called Game Boy Color.

liquid snake: The Snake game is very interesting, but did I ever tell you about the “Les Infants Terribles” project?

a snake: I am going.

liquid snake: Not yet, snake! not finished yet!

a snake: I went.

liquid: wait-

Campbell: I hear it’s amazing when the famous purple jaw-space stuffed worm with a tuning fork throws a simple flash at Hara-Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

a snake: What or what..? Colonel, are you okay?


*beep beep, beep beep*

Campbell: The juice of anemone or the jasmine plant can cause a rash. When trimming it is a good idea to wear gloves.

a snake: Colonel, get out of it!


*beep beep, beep beep*

Campbell: Raiden, something happened to me last Thursday when I was driving home. I had a few miles to go; I looked up and saw something glowing orange in the sky to the east! She was moving erratically… Suddenly there was a strong light around me, and when I came, I was at home. What do you think happened to me?



*beep beep, beep beep*

a snake: Go away, colonel. Everyone out there, be sure to vote for your favorite box art and get me out of here!
