      It took 4 years for the MGS4 novel to get here. Don’t hold your breath.

        Oh my god! Why Kojima!? how much is the MGS4 novel?

        • NegaScott128

          It’s $14.39 on Amazon. I have it. It’s pretty good, aside from a few lines that seem like they work better in Japanese. That, and the constant parallels drawn between Snake and Jesus. That’s a bit weird. They cut out the B&Bs, so there’s that.

            Snake and Jesus? Interesting, now I have to get this. Ought to be a great read. Wonder why B&B Corp was cut out. Thanks.

          • NegaScott128

            I think they cut out the B&Bs because they really have no story connection to the rest of the game. FOXHOUND, Dead Cell, even the Cobras had a reason for being there. They did things besides fight the player. The B&Bs were more just kinda there.

            Yeah, that’s true.

            Makes sense since there are a lot of parallels between The Patriots and religion in MGS4, such as Big Boss being made into a symbol and Solid Snake being his ‘miraculous’ son, who was really brought into the world with a purpose, to be the new icon replacing Big Boss. So I can see the connection.

            Oh yeah that’s right. Forgot about that. Been like half a year since I played MGS4 and I can’t believe that information slipped my mind when I read that. Now I see how it makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.
