All right, so this piece has a story behind it. A few weeks ago, I was in the midst of reading the novelizations of METAL GEAR SOLID and METAL GEAR SOLID 2: Sons of Liberty (I don't own a Playstation 1, 2, or 3). I was greatly enthused by the twisting, conspiracy-laden stories, and had doodled a little METAL GEAR on me art history notes. Then a couple days ago, Dtronaustin
posted his concept for METAL GEAR KAPPA
. He remarked that in Sons of Liberty, it's mentioned that countries around the world are constructing their own "bootleg" versions of METAL GEAR. I remembered that, and then I remembered the little sketch on my notes labeled "METAL GEAR VICTOR." So I drew it up all nice.METAL GEAR VICTOR was intended to be a direct successor to METAL GEAR REX. While the USMC was busy constructing METAL GEAR RAY, the United States government began a black op on a small pacific island, with the intent of developing a better REX. VICTOR was born out of the project.
With former FOXHOUND agent Solid Snake busy taking on other independent METAL GEARs around the world, FOXHOUND dispatched one of their own agents, codenamed "Stoic Crow" to the island...
