HAL/NAOMI REARS IT'S SILLY CONTRIVED HEAD.

(plus it makes me feel bad for Snake. Because I'm way too into the gay and in my head he's like "OH SURE JUST CUZ I'M OLD NOW YOU HAVE TO GET SOMEBODY ELSE!")

I'd like Naomi better if she didn't have a constant state of sideboob. And if she hadn't told Sunny "We girls always have to look our best!" spaaaaarrrrrrreee me, lady. I'd like to introduce you to my nailbat of feminism for that kind of shit. And this is after being awesome and reciting part of the periodic table. a step forward, a step back. This is not to say there's anything WRONG with wanting to be pretty, but telling a little girl that she HAS to is like nails on a chalkboard for me.

"Call me Hal" he says and immediately I'm singing "YOU CAN BE MY BODY GUARD I CAN BE YOUR LONG LOST PAAAAL!"

I miss the silly moments from the first 3 games. I guess it makes sense, given the overall tone of of this game (and the fact that there's no way it's not going to end in tragedy). Still. That means there's no way this game'll replace MGS2 in the "favorite" slot.

OH HAY FACECAMO SNAKE. (Actually kind of looks less attractive than he did on the PS2)

LOL AKIBA. What a douche <3

PEOPLE, STOP SAYING THINGS TO FUCK WITH MY PSYCHE BAR. Although I love how Kojima frequently makes use of game mechanics as storytelling.

I kind of like the film noir feel going on here. Totally gonna need a break soon though. MY EEEYYEESSSS

IT'S OK, I ALSO LIKE TO RANT :D

Naomi/Hal totally felt like Kojima yelling "NOTGAYNOTGAYNOTGAYNOTGAY" in my ear. What really really really bugged me about Naomi's JonBenet thing (and her sideboob) is that every female science professor I've ever had has been kind of frumpy. Badass and frumpy, like "I'M TOO SMART TO HAVE TO CONFORM TO YOUR STANDARDS OF BEAUTY, EAT IT AND LIKE IT" and Naomi's supposed to be like BEST SCIENTIST EVAR. Not that it's impossible to be a genius and smokin' hot but like... The sciences especially the upper levels are generally an extremely sexist environment and you kind of have to be a feminist superbitch to survive, so Naomi being so.... stereotypical about it just PISSES ME OFFFFFF. Then I have to remind myself that it's a video game written by a crazy japanese dude who probably doesn't really get this kind of thing and at least Meryl was largely realistic.

And the sideboob also helped her seduce him. Which was still kind of weird because apparently she did care about him except for the whole rubbing Vamp's hairy chest in front of him WHAT THE FUCK, NAOMI?

There were a few good codec moments in Shadow Moses, like Hal asking Snake how he took out a tank and then telling him he's "THE SHIT"

IT MADE MY LIFE.

MERYL WORE A FUCKING HOLSTER OVER HER WEDDING DRESS.

I LOVE HER SO HARD.

I'd say I'd try to steal her away from Johnny but he was too goddamn sweet to do that to ("I LOVED YOU EVER SINCE SHADOW MOSES!" *flashback to him knocked out naked on the floor*)

Kojima is INFINITELY better at female characters than pretty much any other video game I can think of (LOOKING AT YOU, SQUARESOFT)

The gay ending made me LIFE. The whole game I was like WHERE IS THE GAY WHERE IS THE GAY WHERE IS MY GODDAMN DELICIOUS GAY?!/1!? and then he FINALLY gave it to me. I'm still bummed he's old and doomed, but at least he got a little extra time. And isn't going to give Otacon AIDS FOXDIE.
