Friendship Is Espionage

For those wondering, first panel is based off the line Diamond Tiara said in "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" (episode 18, season 5). Yeah it is maybe late for making somewhat episode-related comic, but I couldn't work on it any sooner.

One of comics that started off on paper but I decided to ink it digitally for better effect. Will submit the original drawings for it sometime later.

Anyway this is a VERY self-indulging comic, I often made references to stuff I'm even not into for sheer enjoyement of readers who may appreciate one reference or another. This comic is a diferent story, since I decided to make it as a tribute to perhaps my favourite videogame franchise:
Metal Gear Solid. First MGS was the first game where I really cared about the characters, and story, something I don't think I really cared before when playing videogames overall. After that I bought MGS3, and loved every second of it, it's an amazing game I really like to return to. I think I like first MGS, and MGS3 the most of all the franchise, but still enjoyed a lots of MGS4 (first game I bought for PS3) and Peace Walker. MGS V has proven to be a mixed bag, indeed I'd appreciate more of the story, HOWEVER it's a killer when it comes to gameplay, stealing almost 120 hours of my life. I regret not a single minute. At the end of the day every MGS game has it's strengths and flaws, but I enjoyed them either way - except for MGS 2, I dunno, there is something off in it if you ask me. Where the franchise will go from now? does it have any future now that Kojima has probably left Konami? Who knows, one is for certain, through the years Kojima and people he worked with on those games delivered plenty of amazing moments for gamers, me included. And for that I am really grateful. Here's hoping that he will keep doing that when working on totally new projects .

Well played Mr Kojima, well played.

PS: now it occured to me it's my first comic to include all of CMC :P
PS2: Needles to say I lost it when I saw a MGS reference in "Make new friends but keep Discord" episode ;)

what is your thoughts on Metal Gear Rising?

Never played it, and I'm not intending to. I don't even treat to be anything even close to being a Metal Gear game.

I was hoping one of them would have been dressed as cyborg Riden.

I was considering Raiden suit at some point, but truth to be told I'm not crazy about him, so I guess I wasn't that inclined to add him :P

"Cutie Mark Crusaders" and "silent" rarely work well in the same sentence :D (Big Grin)

As for Metal Gear series, I think it will go on from now on too. It's not like Kojima has made the games alone, so it's kind of like Lauren Faust and the current-generation of MLP if you ask me.

:icontwilightsparkleplz: "It's really the fact that 'Sweetie Belle' and 'silent' rarely work in the same sentence. The other two are just fine."
:iconrarityangryplz: "I heard that, Twilight Sparkle, and it is NOT funny."

That much is true. Kojima isn't the only person working on the MGS series. That said for me it always felt like it's very personal project for him. As for now I think I'd be more curious about Kojima's next game that is not MGS-related rather than seeing an MGS game without him. I think I still remember how RE series turned out to be after Mikami left Capcom, leading to a whole series of dissapointing titles from Resident Evil franchise. I am sure there will be more MGS games coming since it's still has potential to generate some big bucks for Konami - that's normal approach from business standpoint. Not sure if I will care once the next game will become reality though...

Yeah, it's certain that without Kojima there wouldn't have been any games in the first place, it's definitely interesting what he ends up with next. And yeah, there's of course also a danger that the upcoming MGS titles would become boring and predictable, as they would just try to follow the previous ones' success. I actually wouldn't mind if there would be a complete reboot with a new director and boldly different style, for better or worse.

No please no reboots. We don't need those. :(
