I like how Ocelot starts handing Big Boss’s robohand really delicate items right after seeing him fumble with a canteen.  Here take this holographic device that’s way too advanced for the 80s and these expensive Ray-Ban aviators.  I’M SURE YOU WON’T DROP THEM.


Check out Ocelot’s Diamond Dogs patch.  His is the only one I’ve seen with inverted colors.  OCELOT, WHY ARE YOU SPECIAL??

"In the forest in the back [during the Ocelot battle] is a markhor, because Ocelot likes markhors, if you shoot that markhor he will flip out." -Kojima (MGS3 commentary)

JUST IMAGINE… The pure joy on Ocelot’s face when Big Boss fultons a goat back for him.

So we just saw a little bit of new gameplay footage on Kojima Station, and I paused and noticed this “phantom cigar” in the item menu… I wonder if we weren’t supposed to see this yet.  Welp, time to speculate.

I think Kojima said that we will be able to fast forward time using the cigar. Like in this pic, which is in-game


Ooh yes that makes a lot of sense.  What a mysterious name for a cigar, though.

Did a series on Miiverse of Link looking uncomfortable while monsters latch onto him.


Digging through old Peace Walker screencaps, I recalled this gem.  One co-ops teammate got a little over-enthusiastic with rocket launchers.  Pictured is the other co-ops teammate a split second before she was blown up.

Oh my god I was watching Peace Walker again and Big Boss said this line and I burst out laughing (for reasons). I wonder what instrument they’ll get played like in The Phantom Pain? Wait…I think Big Boss is about to start playing electric guitar…really loud…

oh oh I know!They’re going to get beaten like a drum!

Next MGS game, Kojima’s just going to cameo himself making out with Big Boss.

Side Ops mission: Date with Kojima


Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers (Romalea guttata)

Awhile back I found about 50 of these pretty little black grasshoppers clustered together in the backyard, and they hung around long enough for me to watch them grow.  It turns out they’re the nymph stage of lubber grasshoppers, which are as big as mice, slow, and flightless.  They apparently like eating flowers!
