Squirrel's busy. And that's created a dilemma.

Yes, my stockpile of posts in preparation for such an event has run short, and that means either thrilling changes in direction or... not much happening until the end of June. I was sixteen years of age when I started this blog, and back then I could afford to make writing questionable English a priority. Today that's less possible, and so, "Blog Squirrel spring break" or something... idk.

I'm also acutely aware that I may have spent the last six years completely wasting my time, so I don't want to be ploughing more hours into this project than I need to (that time's for Sega Retro!!). I've thought about bringing in other fun subjects like PROGRAMMING and UK POLITICS, or maybe use that Twitter account for something other than automated plugging, but it's all up in the air - there may not even be a future. Frightening!

Feel free to suggest things in the comments below or stay silent or whatever - I'll still be around, but unless something major happens, I won't posting reviews of video games for a couple of months.

As an aside, I've acquired a lot of pointless Sega knowledge over the last three years - I could start detailing finds if people care.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Can you tell I've got a job yet

Time to conclude these solid, high definition gears of metal with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. This one was a PSP game - that's a fine recipe for success on the big screen I'm sure.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Apparently I was the only human being oblivious of Metal Gear Solid 3's existence when it was released. "It's the bestest PlayStation 2 game ever", said the press, "look at those green and brown textures, aren't they hip and rad?!".

Sure looks "hip and rad" to me... if you've never seen video game graphics before. Anyway here we go with part two of whatever - 2004's Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, the modern "HD" version for modern "HD" people.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Here's a franchise I've not bothered with - Metal Gear. And what better way to get acquainted with this nest of snakes than with Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, released back in late 2011 for Xboxes and PlayStations?

...actually I suppose the 1998 PlayStation release of Metal Gear Solid would be a better idea, but hey, here's the next best thing - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, thrown at PlayStation 2 owners in late 2001. I can't wait to save the day as Solid Snake!
