About


I'm 23 and live in Western Massachusetts, USA and like Video Games, but more than that I like consumer electronics, including and especially focused on cool things I can carry on my person.

Systems I own:
PlayStation 2
PlayStation 3 80GB
PSP model #1000
Nintendo Wii
Nintendo DS Lite
Gameboy Micro


Favorite Game(s):
Metal Gear Series!

Currently Playing:
Little Big Planet

I do marketing for a manufacturing company who makes watertight/airtight enclosures for the US military to put all of their expensive stuff in. i.e guns, missile components, aircraft parts. pretty damn neat. needless to say all of my gaming peripherals are soundly protected by mil-spec cases now.

Hobbies: Drawing, Gaming, Carving, Hiking, Camping, Fishing, Mountain Biking, Climbing (ice and rock), Kayaking, Skim Boarding, Shooting, and pretty much anything else that ends in -ing that takes place outside.


Likes: Dogs, Weapons, Video Games, My Girlfriend, My Girlfriend's Dog, Food, Cooking, Good Water, Gadgets, Things with LCD screens, Watches, Whiskey, Beer, Specialty stores, Internet shopping, and Jackets. Seriously...I have a problem. I have more coats and Jackets than my girlfriend has shoes and purses combined.

Dislikes: Hippies, Unorganized things, dead batteries, Tomatoes, City Water, mice without scroll wheels, the original Xbox controller, mosquitoes & black flies (in that order), Wal-Mart (even though I can't afford not to go), and Sweating because of heat and not physical expenditure.

Well I happened to catch this online today whilst I was eating lunch and I can say with all confidence that we are all totally boned. This critter is not new in any form but the newest model however is something to marvel at. Much more "animal" than its predecessor and with the ability to carry roughly double the weight of the first run while at a fraction of the size this miniature version of what could become a real life Metal Gear may be seen as a wonderful device to carry munitions into battle or carry the wounded out. The video shows little stress on the machine carrying itself and an excess of 340 lbs. (154.55 Kilo) but it would seem to my video game oriented mind that it would serve just as well increased 10 fold in size and carrying a large nuclear missile pod anywhere it damn well pleases.

The video boasts some pretty serious skills for this little dude they call the Big Dog such as recovering from slipping on Ice and clearing an imaginary cross beam without breaking itself. This machine is backed by DARPA funding and research and is being headlined by Boston Dynamics to do the dirty work of actually building and testing it.

Perhaps Hideo Kojima should send them both a free copy of Guns of the Patriots just so that they know what they are getting into...but maybe all that inspiration might be a bad thing.
