The official novelization of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is due out in November, raising the question of how many different ways there are to say "hiding his crotch with his hands".


Perhaps author Raymond Benson will offer us some keen insight into Raiden's mindset as he snuck naked through a heavily fortified enemy base in Metal Gear Solid 2. Benson, the author of six James Bond continuation novels, also penned the novelization of the first Metal Gear Solid, which went on sale last May. Reader reviews of the first book were relatively positive, although there weren't that many, so we've high hopes that Benson will return to form on November 24th, as long as he can avoid passages like this one:
