Give a squid a home

No cash prize to hand out, I’m afraid – I went and found the unused Metal Slug Advance areas myself. There’s still a debug menu and a Slug Mariner to find, though, so if anyone in the audience has the hacking chops to find them, what are you waiting for?!

The past couple of weeks have been rough, full of work, stress and regrets. Still, it’s good to find the time to bust open MS Paint and make some fresh garbage. Thanks for sticking around, folks.

Metal Slug: Missing in Action finally saw an update after five years! Don’t get your hopes up, though – although a debug menu in MS6 was discovered, it’s not hiding anything wild or exciting. I’m still holding out for a debug menu in Metal Slug Advance to be unearthed, and I am seriously tempted to offer a cash prize for it. I mean, check out the newly rewritten debug menu page – there’s at least six unused areas waiting to be discovered!

Anyway, thanks to all the Metal Slug fans who’ve somehow held out with this outdated site for so long. This update wouldn’t have been possible without reader submissions – I’m struggling to emphasise the “your input means so much!” part, and not in a “I’m counting on you to do all the work for me” manner. When all the easy discoveries are done and the rest relies on hacking, I’m kinda out of my depth!

Holding out for a hero

It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about Metal Slug, hasn’t it?
A couple of days ago a Korean fellow emailed me with some pretty juicy material found in Metal Slug 5 – we’re talking unused areas, blocked-off alternate paths and totally unique backgrounds!

Seriously, check this out. Those cogs apparently exist at the bottom of the Mission 5 fight against the elephant tower machines, would you believe it? And if anyone has ever survived my terribly written coverage of the early video previews of the game, you might recognise that screen on the right as appearing in one of the videos as an intro to one of the areas – but in-game you start just past it. It’s still there, it’s just off-screen, evidently!
