Flemish Brabant

Flemish Brabant is a province of Flanders, one of the three regions of Belgium. It borders on the Belgian provinces of Antwerp, Limburg, Liège, Walloon Brabant and East Flanders. Flemish Brabant surrounds the Brussels-Capital Region, its capital is Leuven. It has an area of 2,118 km2, divided into two administrative districts containing 65 municipalities; as of January 2019, Flemish Brabant has a population of 1,146,175. Flemish Brabant was created in 1995 by the splitting of the former province of Brabant into three parts: two new provinces, Flemish Brabant and Walloon Brabant; the split was made to accommodate the eventual division of Belgium in three regions. It is a province with a rich cultural history and a great diversity of typical products, among them several of the world-famous Belgian beers; the province is made up of two arrondissements. The Halle-Vilvoorde Arrondissement has Brussels in its middle and is therefore a residential area though it has large industrial zones and contains Belgium's main airport.

The other arrondissement is the Leuven Arrondissement, centered on Leuven. The official language in Flemish Brabant is Dutch, but a few municipalities are to a certain extent allowed to use French to communicate with their citizens. Other such special municipalities can be found along the border between Flanders and Wallonia, between Wallonia and the German-speaking area of Belgium. Halle-Vilvoorde surrounds Brussels, bilingual but whose inhabitants speak French; the history of Brabant can be found at the Duchy of Brabant article. The Governor is the representative or "commissioner" of the Federal and the Flemish Government in Flemish Brabant, he is appointed by the Flemish Government, on the unanimous advice of the Federal Council of Ministers. The current Governor is Lodewijk De Witte, he has been the Governor of Flemish Brabant since it was created in 1995 as a result of the splitting up of the Province of Brabant; the Governor is responsible for supervising the local authorities, ensuring that laws and decrees are observed, maintaining public order and security, coordinating the response to a disaster which has occurred in his province.

He presides over the Deputation, however, he doesn't have the right to vote in the Deputation except in those cases where the Deputation exercises a judicial function. Flemish Brabant is the only province; the Deputy Governor is appointed by the Flemish Government on the unanimous advice of the Federal Council of Ministers and must have a considerable knowledge of both the Dutch and the French language. He is responsible for ensuring that the language legislation is observed in the peripheral municipalities of Flemish Brabant; the Provincial Council of Flemish Brabant consists of 72 members elected for a term of office of 6 years.

These parties together have a majority of 43 out of 72 seats; the Deputation is the executive organ responsible for the daily administration of the province. It consists of six Deputies elected by the Provincial Council from among its midst.

Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake

Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake is an overhead action-adventure stealth video game released by Konami for the MSX2 computer platform in 1990. It serves as a direct sequel to the MSX2 version of the original Metal Gear and designed by series's creator Hideo Kojima, who conceived the game in response to Snake's Revenge, a separately-produced sequel, being developed at the time for the NES for the North American and European markets; the MSX2 version of Metal Gear 2 was only released in Japan, although Kojima would direct another sequel titled Metal Gear Solid, released worldwide for the PlayStation in 1998 to critical acclaim. This led to Metal Gear 2 being re-released alongside the original Metal Gear as additional content in the Subsistence version of Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PlayStation 2 in 2005, it was included in the HD remastered ports of Metal Gear Solid 3 released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Vita and was given a stand-alone re-release in Japan as a downloadable game for mobile phones and the Wii Virtual Console.

Set in 1999, a few years after the events of the original game, Solid Snake must infiltrate a defended territory known as Zanzibar Land to rescue a kidnapped scientist and destroy the revised "Metal Gear D". The game evolved the stealth-based game system of its predecessor "in every way", introduced a complex storyline dealing with themes such as the nature of warfare and nuclear proliferation, is considered "one of the best 8 bit games made." Metal Gear 2 builds upon the stealth-based gameplay system of its predecessor. As in the original Metal Gear, the player's objective is to infiltrate the enemy's stronghold, while avoiding detection from soldiers, infrared sensors and other surveillance devices; the biggest change in the game was done to the enemy's abilities. Instead of remaining stationed in one screen like in the first game, enemy soldiers can now patrol different screens across a single map. Moreover, guards now have an expanded field of vision of 45 degrees, along with the ability to turn their heads left or right to see diagonally.

The enemy can detect sounds, with the enemy able to hear any noise made by the player, such as a punch to the wall and gunshots made without a suppressor, will investigate the source of the sound once it is made. They can detect sounds made from the player walking on certain surfaces, which means players need to be careful about what surfaces they walk on. If the player is discovered by the enemy a counter will be displayed on the upper right side of the screen that will go down after the enemy has lost track of the player; when the counter reaches zero, the alert phase will go off and the game will return to normal. The player is given a variety of new maneuvers and tools to help them remain undetected and complete the game. For example, the player can now kneel and crawl in addition to walking, allowing the player to avoid making noise over certain terrains, pick up land mines, hide in tight spaces such as under desks or inside air ducts. A radar with a 3x3 grid on the upper right of the screen shows the player's current area in the center grid, with enemy soldiers as white dots, allowing the player to determine what's ahead.

However, the radar is disabled. The radar can be used with the mine detector equipped to determine the locations of enemy mines or launch Stinger missiles onto an airborne target. Many of the weapons and equipment from the first game are brought over along with new items such as robotic mice used to distract enemies, a camouflaged mat and three different types of rations with special attributes each. Health and carrying capacity are increased each time; the transceiver has been revamped from the first game as well, with conversations now being context-sensitive rather than being area-oriented. The transceiver screen now displays the faces of Snake and the radio contact he's communicating with; the player can talk to children living in the fortress to gain new information. The areas are more varied than in the previous MSX2 game and a number of puzzles must be fulfilled to complete the game, such as luring a carrier pigeon with a specific kind of ration, chasing after a female spy to the ladies' lavatory, deciphering secret tap codes to gain new frequency numbers.

The MSX2 version required the use of either a floppy disk or the Game Master II's SRAM memory to save the player's progress. Passwords can be used as well in the absence of either; these complexities were eliminated in the ports due to the standardization of storage devices such as memory cards and internal hard drives to save data. Solid Snake retired FOXHOUND agent and hero of the original Metal Gear returns as the playable character, his new mission is to rescue the kidnapped Czechoslovak biologist Dr. Kio Marv from the forces of Zanzibarland, he is assisted by a radio support crew consisting of his new commanding officer. Assisting him on-site are Horry White, a CIA agent posing as a journalist. Appearing in the game are Big Boss, the renegade former commander of FOXHOUND
