The Out-Cast: EP.5 – Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

What on earth is the Out-Cast?
Well, this was a series of podcasts I did back in 2010~2012 on videogames and videogame culture in Japan for an old website with a completely different crew.
I’m republishing them here on DecultureShock, but for anyone who is interested, the original website can be found here.

This is the fifth episode of the Out-Cast. This time we have one thing and one thing only on our minds: Metal Gear. So join us as we spend nearly three hours on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Download below and please leave us any comments on how we can improve this podcast. Thanks for listening.
