Merry Gear Solid 2

Solid Snake strikes again. This time, he's an old 2D pixel character trying to retrieve Santa's stolen hat from extremist group, The Ghosts of Christmas Past in Merry Gear Solid 2. If you are scratching your heads by now, Merry Gear Solid is obviously a spin off of Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid. The Merry Gear Solid franchise was created by Arthur Lee, otherwise known as "Mr. Pondunkian." This is the second installment, following after Merry Gear Solid: Secret Santa.

Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy – a fan film for MGS lovers

Solid Snake finally gets some face time on the big screen. Okay, so this might not exactly be "the" Metal Gear movie that everyone is dying to see, but for a fan made film, this one certainly hits all the right notes. Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy is a low budget film created by a group of young Italian students and filmmakers. They dub themselves as the Hive Division and the group took on a massive undertaking by adapting Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid videogame into a full blown 70-minute film. For a film with no budget, the effects are awesome and for a split second it will even make you wonder whether it's necessary to have a Hollywood version at all.
