About the Author

A native and lifelong Texan, I currently work in software education while contributing news, reviews, and interviews to VGMO on the side. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement. Outside of VGMO, I enjoy playing piano, listening to classical music and film scores, and trying to go unnoticed in any stealth RPG I can find.

    Why You miss the music from Metal Gear Acid and Metal Gear Solid Portable OPS?

    • Oliver Jia says:

      Hi Thomas. For this podcast episode, we decided to only focus on the main Metal Gear games. While the spin-off titles could easily warrant discussion about their music, we wanted to try to keep everything as concise as possible. In fact, our original recording of JUST the main games was more than twice as long as what you see here! We will likely make the extra discussions that didn’t make the final cut a bonus for our Patreon contributors in the future.

      Thank you very much for listening to our podcast and stay tuned for future episodes!
