… we weren’t thinking – we were feeling. But it was in the dark without a torch and running full storm for the nearest wall or the deepest unseen precipice. The subject matter this time around is still based in what songs have been based for centuries now – relationships, self-loathing, disgusting, fear, beauty, wonder and awe. The way they are treated is entirely new for us – in lieu of looking back wistfully or longingly we were living it as we wrote it. If we had kept at whatever destructive things had nearly engulfed us we would be destroyed. This is how inspiration arises for some musicians – for Charlie specifically, it is the wonder or terror of the moment that strikes him dumb with ideas and makes him reach for a napkin and a pen. For me, it always the latter, delayed, in the form of a dream – sometimes waking, but never a conscious moment or a decision. It is always the result of a semi-lucid state… half asleep, 5am, sleepwalking, restless ideas of waves, yelling in my mind. I knew I was out on the wolds [sic] and the storm was coming and I had to make a tree for shelter, or I would perish in the torrents, while Charlie looked over the brink and considered another way out.

Thoughts on the MGS Legacy Collection as an entrance into the MGS universe?Also, if you've been keeping up with the development and disclosure of MGSV's gameplay/or features what are your impressions? (acute details on whether or not you are excited for it)
Anonymous asked

well it’s got everything you want so yeah. not sure what order ot play them in. i’d be tempted to start with MGS2 i think.

tbh, im making a point of avoiding MGSV chat. mostly cause i know i’ll get carried way with it. it looks very impressive but i think they’ll need to work on the level design in that kind of engine. i had mixed thoughts on ground zeroes
