The Gaming Outsider crew finally gets together to discuss Konami’s possible swan song Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Scott and Robbie welcome special guest Steve Peterson to discuss the game’s impact and their feelings on the game as a whole. The episode veers off into spoiler territory after a brief warning where the gang spoils the entire ending and discusses how it ties into the entire Metal Gear legacy.

Correction: The crew mentions Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake as a game on the original Nintendo Entertainment System when actually it was on the MSX home computer instead. The game did not hit consoles until it was bundled with Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence on the Playstation 2.
