After a three year break, Cyril Reads Worlds of Power is back for another season! Now that we've tackled ninjas, bionic men and masters of blasting, it's time to look at the ageless story of man vs. machine. In this case, it's a Solid Snake versus a Metal Gear.

That's right; it's time for Cyril Reads Metal Gear! Over the next three months we will be following Solid Snake as he attempts to infiltrate Outer Heaven, rescue kidnapped buddies and take down the Metal Gear. Is this young soldier up for the task? Of course not, but that's not going to stop him from trying to save the day in this eagerly anticipated podcast.

Starting today, you can expect a brand new episode of Cyril Reads Metal Gear every Wednesday. You can also subscribe to our podcast RSS to stay completely up to date.
