Bring These Metal Gear Solid Gifts Home to Outer Heaven

first_img Why are we here? Just to suffer? Well if you’re a Metal Gear Solid fan you know one sure-fire way to distract yourself from the pain of phantom limbs and missing comrades is to dive deep into these magnificent stealth action games. But being a Metal Gear fan means more than just virtually sneaking around. Metal Gear is just as, if not more, beloved for its characters and ideas and bonkers revisionist military history. We don’t just want to play Metal Gear Solid. We want to live in the world of Metal Gear Solid.That’s never going to happen, probably for the best. Today’s world is bad enough without nuke-shooting tanks with legs walking around. But if you or the Metal Gear lover in your life want to live out some Snake fantasies, these gift ideas are a great place to start.Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive ExperienceWeird zombie spin-offs without the original creators aside, Metal Gear Solid V may be the final true entry of the series. This open-world opus was quite the send-off, though. The Definitive Experience combines both halves of the game, Ground Zeroes, and The Phantom Pain, into one epic package.FOXHOUND T-ShirtShow your allegiance to the elite special force unit FOXHOUND with this T-Shirt. If it’s good enough for Naked, Solid, and Liquid Snake, it’s definitely good enough for you. Just don’t try to take over Shadow Moses.Raiden’s SwordThe Metal Gear series is usually about careful, quiet sneaking. But sometimes you just need to throw subtlety out the window and start chopping fools to death with a big sword. That’s what Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is all about, and you can own a replica of the sword Raiden kills so many people with in that game. But please don’t kill any people.A Cardboard BoxSnake’s greatest weapon on the battlefield isn’t a gun or a sneaking suit or a horse that can poop on command. It’s a plain old cardboard box he can hide under to avoid enemies. So if you have enemies to avoid, just get yourself a cardboard box of your very own. If you’re feeling fancy, put some sexy drawings on the outside as a distraction.Venom Snake Nendoroid Action FigureLet this adorable little Venom Snake action figure inspire you as you continue the sneaking mission that is life. Look at his little cigar and his little eye patch and his little shrapnel horn and his little robot arm. V has come to, and he’s as cute as can be.An Eye PatchI don’t care if both of your eyes work just fine. If you want to be Snake, you need to start wearing an eye patch. Flents is (probably) a fine maker of eye patches that fit anyone, even legendary soldiers, and their angsty clone sons.The Art of Metal Gear Solid VEven if you don’t enjoy playing the games, the art of the Metal Gear series is still gorgeous to look at. This art book collects concepts and designs from the final entry in the series, including drawings no one has ever seen before. With hundreds of pieces of art, this should keep your eyes entertained for a while.A Cigarette Lighter Phone CaseSmoking isn’t good for you. Just because Snake smokes doesn’t mean you should start. But if you do smoke, and you want to be more like Snake, pop a cigarette lighter case on your phone and light up while still staying up to date on important intel. Or just smoke for hours to make time go by faster (please don’t).Diamond Dogs Key ChainDon’t let your sorrows be scattered to the heartless sea. You’re all diamonds, and let everyone know with a Diamond Dogs keychain. That way, the coroners will know exactly what to do with your ashes. Big Boss will be so proud.Metal Gear Solid Vocal TracksWhooooaaaaAAHHHH!!!! Did you know that Metal Gear Solid also has a long history of great music, of great vocal tracks? I listen to “Sins of the Father,” “Snake Eater,” and “Heavens Divide” constantly on my way to work. The Metal Gear Solid Vocal Tracks album collects these songs on one convenient disc. It’s the perfect holiday soundtrack for any Mother Base.Death StrandingJust because Hideo Kojima is done making Metal Gear Solid games doesn’t mean he’s done making video games. The gonzo gaming guru’s next project is the inscrutable Death Stranding. Trailers make it seem like some kind of military horror game featuring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo Del Toro, babies in jars, and lots of black goo.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
