Whether it's creating wildly inventive game mods or building figures of their favorite characters from scratch, I can't help but marvel at the inventiveness of the gaming community. And then one of us does something like this.

You can credit Bruce Carr for this balloon Snake who made this towering collection of balloons and stealth for a friend's birthday. And you can credit MTV Multiplayer editor Clint Mize with coining the phrase "Gaseous Snake."

It's the eyes... they haunt me. And that it's the size of people. Hit the jump to see him in all his glory.

So with the announcement of a movie along the way I thought I'd take a moment to call out a few scenarios, events, and plot points from the legendary Metal Gear Solid that absolutely *have* to be included in the film.

Now, there are dozens of memorable moments throughout the franchise but for the sake of simplicity I'm just going to pull from Metal Gear Solid as that's most likely the story that would be adapted.  I also want to focus on the first (ok, technically 3rd game) of the series because attempting to cull all the awesomeness across all of Snake's journey would just be too brain-shatteringly insane; so without further ado- THESE FIVE THINGS NEED TO APPEAR IN A METAL GEAR MOVIE!

That sound you heard was a million red exclamation marks popping into existence over every Metal Gear fan.

So big, big news coming out of Konami's Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event in Japan- a Hollywood adaptation of Metal Gear is on the way. The father of Snake and series creator, Hideo Kojima, along with Hollywood producer Avi Arad, announced a partnership between Columbia Pictures and Konami for a big screen release of the rabidly popular video game franchise.

You'll know Avi Arad as producing X-Men, Spider-Man 2, and bunch of other Marvel properties so it's a pretty safe bet that the Metal Gear movie will get the treatment it needs.

"Metal Gear" creator Hideo Kojima is about as prolific on Twitter as Guided By Voice's Bob Pollard is with songwriting. The guy just tweets absolutely everything that pops in his head, like what he's eating and existential thoughts on architecture. Well, today Kojima actually dispersed with some knowledge on the upcoming "Metal Gear Solid HD Collection," letting us in on some (confusing) details for what's looking like a promising release for series fans.

The year was 1987. A twenty-four year old Hideo Kojima was just releasing the first chapter in what would become one the most beloved gaming franchises in history. "Metal Gear," a game about a special operative named Solid Snake infiltrating a mysterious zone known as Outer Heaven, was originally designed for the Japanese MSX2 home computer. Eventually, the game received the port treatment, landing on the more popular Nintendo Entertainment System.

Of course, Kojima wasn't involved with the NES version, and if you've ever actually seen both iterations, you're probably not surprised to learn that the designer was none-too-happy about the changes.

Konami decided to get a bit of a head-start on E3 last night, opting to hold a special pre-expo press conference via streaming web video. There were also a number of viewing parties in cities around the world, but alas, I was forced to watch the proceedings from my couch. While there was certainly the usual goofiness we've come to expect from Konami events, as well as a few surprise announcements, my attention was primarily focused on the exciting new "Metal Gear" news.

Metal Gear Rising

Microsoft's press conference at E3 2009 featured the surprise reveal of "Metal Gear Solid Rising," which would be coming to the Xbox 360, in addition to the PS3. Since then, though, we haven't heard a peep about the game from anyone. All we've really had to go on is the above image, which shows series-regular, Raiden, in full cyber-ninja gear. And, surprisingly, neither has David Hayter, who is the well-known voice actor of Solid Snake and his pops, Big Boss.

Tokimeki Metal Gear: Girl's Side 1st Mission

Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima speaks frequently about hefty consequences. In the past, he's said that "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker" delays represent a crime and that consoles are doomed in the near future. Now, he's upping the ante for whatever he's plotting next, and if he doesn't succeed, he says that he will leave video games altogether.
