Oscar Isaac pegged to play Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid film

Gearing up

The Metal Gear Solid movie has been in development hell for a long, long time now, but it appears some movement is finally being made.

While it's not 100% official just yet, inside sources are claiming that Oscar Isaac is going to take on the role of Solid Snake. Isaac is certainly one of the busier actors in Hollywood, and his attachment to the film boosts its profile considerably. With Jordan Vogt-Roberts set to direct, hopefully we can expect an adaptation that is taken seriously, and respects the franchise its paying tribute to.

Listen to the Colonel!

No matter how much Solid Snake wants to save the day right now, the best he can do to help out is stay home to fight the good fight.

See what Snake, the Colonel, and Octacon have to say in the video above!

Metal Gear Solid fan gives his Switch a special makeover

It's Metal Gear Solid on the Switch...sort of!

Nintendo fans typically don't get much in the way of Metal Gear Solid titles to enjoy. For example the only instance of Solid Snake on Switch comes from his appearance in Smash Bros. Ultimate. That hasn't stopped one fan from paying tribute to the franchise in a unique way though.

Redditor Nukem23 has given his Switch and Switch dock a complete makeover with a gorgeous skin featuring Metal Gear Solid 3. That dock in particular is looking all sorts of nice. There's even a bit of Metal Gear Solid 2 artwork on one of the Joy-Con!

Nukem23 said he put this together by grabbing some artwork from the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and then used the site Decalgirl to get the skin done. It looks like the final product came out exactly as he wanted!

Mondo releasing the original Metal Gear soundtrack on vinyl

Metal Gear, vinyl album

METAL GEAR - Original NES Video Game Soundtrack 10-Inch. Music by Konami Kukeiha Club. Original Artwork by Paul Mann. Pressed on Heavy Weight Split-Colored vinyl. Strictly One off pressing of 1,000 units. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships Worldwide. $20

Mondo is proud to present the premiere physical release of the soundtrack to the 1988 NES version of the classic game that started it all: METAL GEAR.

Retroactively considered unofficial by both the game's creator and fans, the American release of METAL GEAR is one of the few black sheep of the legacy franchise. But for some it was the entry point to one of the most essential game series of all time. And due to the technical limitations of the system itself, the soundtrack to the NES version differs from the MSX2 version, solidifying it as a unique, if flawed departure from the developers original intent.

This premiere physical release of the soundtrack is cut at 45RPM, and features all new original artwork by Paul Mann, this limited-edition release is pressed on heavyweight split colored vinyl, and strictly limited to 1,000 copies.

You'll be able to pick up this album on Mondo's official website this Wednesday. Preorders go live at noon CT.
