Anthony John Agnello makes his debut on The Digest in this episode—notwithstanding his appearance on The ’Gestys—to talk about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, a game with ninjas, cyborgs, and elaborate email robots. It’s like a Simpsons parody of a Japanese video game, except real. Anthony knows the Metal Gear series much better than I do, so it was great to have him weigh in on this one. We disagree somewhat on the excitement of running up the side of a skyscraper, but we can both offer a solid thumbs-up on Revengeance’s breakout star: a robot dog who has a real smart mouth, except he doesn’t know he has a smart mouth because he’s a robot (and a dog), so he just says the darnedest things. Spinoff, anyone?
