The Weekly Stuff Podcast #113 - Metal Gear Solid Retrospective Spectacular!

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain the big video game release of the past week, this week’s episode dives into the history of the entire Metal Gear Solid series, as we look back on every major entry in the franchise from the original Metal Gear Solid on the PSOne all the way to Peace Walker on the PSP. If nothing else, this is an endlessly fascinating franchise, and there is plenty to discuss and debate as we take a walk down twenty years of video game memory lane.

We also give some early spoiler-free reactions to The Phantom Pain, though as both of us are still a little ways away from finishing it, we won’t be giving our full podcast review until next week’s show. So look forward to that next time!

  1. Great episode! Are there still plans to have a Godzilla retrospective episode as promised when Godzilla (2014) came out? :)

    1. Good question....probably not in the near future (i.e. 2015), because it would take an insane amount of work on my part, catching up on lots of Godzilla movies. Otherwise it would just be Sean talking about Godzilla and me asking questions. We'd want to do it right. But it's on the list. And it's good to know there's enthusiasm for it!

    2. Sure, there's way too many to watch all of them for one show. Maybe it could be limited to Sean's favorites, the movies on blu-ray, or one or two movies from each decade. I'm happy that it could still be an option for a future episode!

    3. Yeah, we will probably do it as a selection of Sean's favorites, when the time comes. But it's definitely still in the docket!
