This is looking really great! Snake is such a you got the right brand of Cigs (But did you know in the old games he used to smoke Lucky Strikes...maybe he switched when Faye Valentine started smoking them too)

Sunsetdancer avatar

Sunsetdancer - 11th February 2010
Yes I knew about the Lucky Strikes but couldnt get any, so went for Malboro instead XD

It seems that it is never shown what brand he actually smokes through any of the Solid series of games. Apparently Hideo is an avid anti smoker and wasnt willing to show them. But clearly they are either Malboro or Lucky Strikes but I couldnt get Lucky Strikes so had to get Malboro.
