If you see snakes everywhere in your house, this may point to the feeling of having your personal space I did see two snakes meet up & looked like they had a snake kiss.
That will be my legacy, my mark on history. But the Patriots would deny us even that. I will triumph over the Patriots, and liberate us all. And we will become the "Sons of Liberty"! I've finished going over that disc. Did you find the Patriots' list? It contains the personal data of 12 people.
There was a name on it—Snake, it was one of our biggest contributors. What's going on around here? Anyway, where are they? Well, we were right about them being on Manhattan, but All 12 of them.
When did it happen? About Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty[ edit ] Metal Gear Solid sold well throughout the world; it was a great success. When I heard about the hardware for the PlayStation 2, I wanted to try something new. Up to that point, all cutscenes had focused more on details like facial expressions, but I wanted to pay more attention to the surroundings, to see how much I could change them in real time.
Current games like Call of Duty have followed this trend of making your surroundings more realistic. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater [ edit ] The Boss: What about you, Jack? What's it going to be?
Loyalty to your country, or loyalty to me? Your country, or your old mentor? The mission, or your beliefs? Your duty to your unit, or your personal feelings? You don't know the truth yet. But sooner or later you'll have to choose. Snake, listen to me. She didn't betray the United States. No, far from it. She was a hero who died for her country.
She carried out her mission knowing full well what was going to happen. You are above even the Boss I hereby award you the title of Big Boss. You are a true patriot. You know, we could use an infiltration unit like FOX in the army. Someone like him to handle our top-secret sneaking missions for us: The Boss' defection was a ruse set up by the US government.
It was all a big drama staged by Washington so they could get their hands on the Philosopher's Legacy, and the Boss was the star of the show. They planned it so that they could get the Legacy that Colonel Volgin inherited and destroy the Shagohod at the same time. Only a legendary hero like The Boss could have earned Volgin's trust.
Finding out where the Philosopher's Legacy was hidden was to be her greatest mission. Everything was going according to plan Colonel Volgin fired an American-made nuclear warhead at Sokolov's research facility. Khrushchev demanded that the US government provide proof that it wasn't involved.
They couldn't just abort the operation to steal the Legacy, so the operation itself was greatly expanded and revised. The authorities in Washington knew that in order to prove its innocence they'd have to get rid of The Boss and that one of their own would have to do the job.
The public couldn't be allowed to find out about it, not ever. This, they concluded, would be the best way to keep the whole thing under wraps. The Boss wouldn't be allowed to come back home alive.
And she wouldn't be allowed to kill herself. Her life would be ended by her most beloved disciple That was the mission she was given. And she had no choice but to carry it out Out of duty, she turned her back on her own comrades. A lesser woman would have been crushed by such a burden. Future generations will revile her: In America, as a despicable traitor with no sense of honor; and in Russia, as a monster who unleashed a nuclear catastrophe.
She will go down in official history as a war criminal, and no one will ever understand her And like a true soldier, she saw it through the end. But I think she wanted you, of all people to know the truth. She wanted to live on in your memory. Not as a soldier, but as a woman. And that's why she told me. No one will ever learn the truth. Her story, her debriefing She sacrificed her life and her honor for her native land.
She was a real hero. She was a true patriot. It suddenly begins to rain dousing the fire. A man appears from the water. Are you one of The Cobras?! A host of sorrows. And you are one of them. Like you, I am too filled with sadness. This world is one of sadness Their voices may fall upon deaf ears. But, make no mistake. The dead are not silent.
Now you'll know the sorrow of those who's lives you have ended. Boss, you have to shoot me. You want to finish your mission don't you?
The Spirit of the warrior Snake Eater[ edit ] It's not really how I was inspired or influenced. We as video game creators and you video game fans want to experience jungle battle, fighting in the jungle and field battle.
We've done enough with the CQB close Quarters Battlewe're taking this direction that everyone wants to experience. Game creators all over the world have tried creating jungles and throwing jungles in their games, but it hasn't worked. This time we are trying to break through that, we are trying to overcome that. Because in video games when you try to create a jungle or forest there is so much vegetation it's really hard to do because of hardware limitations.
That's something we are trying to overcome. That's why we are coming up with a new engine for the game and hopefully we can accomplish. The game takes place in the '60s, and if the game was going to be about survival, I decided it had better take place in the jungle. What we did to create the experimental environment was that we went to islands like Yakushima, Amami Oshima, and even places in Canada.
These are places with a lot of vegetation, like Japanese jungles. Well, obviously not Canada. Based on our research, we created this fictional jungle forest to see if it worked. Mori taught how camouflage works in the wilderness, and he showed us CQC techniques. He showed us how the people really would fight against each other. He also taught us the technique of stalking, which is very slow. You don't make any sounds.
Metal Gear Acid [ edit ] Hans: Everyone has two personalities in them. One of them a persona for everyday public life, and the other the exact opposite. The personality lurking in one's subconscious is referred to as the "Shadow" in psychological terms.
The Shadow negates its symmetrical opposite, the "Light" persona, and in some cases grows to the same level. If it manages to grow large enough, it takes on its own shape, separates from the body, and can walk around on its own. And that, my friend, is why we're both here.

If I die here, it means I'm not the hero. The hero is supposed to survive to the end. I guess that makes me the villain. The villain is always supposed take the hero's side right before dying. The Children of Hamelin looked up to you as a hero.
You were a man created by those in power, and performed mighty works for them. The Legendary Hero -- Solid Snake. That's what we were always taught. You're a cloned soldier -- patterned after the legendary Solid Snake. We recovered his body from Lobito Island, and created you through a fusion of his cells and our data.
You were our Model 3, Snake. Don't worry about Snake. He's been to hell and back. He's a survivor, you know. Always has been, always will be. He'll be just fine.
I'm always right about these things. What do you plan to do once your wounds heal up? Just a personal goal. And what would that be? To keep on living. All this time, I've been searching for my past. And now I know that I don't have one. I was manufactured in a lab. I'm not even a real human. I've got no past, and might not have much of a future. I was made to be a weapon. And I don't have squat to my name. You're way off about having nothing, though. It was four years ago, in Mozambique.
There was a child soldier fighting with a guerrilla group in the struggle for independence. He killed dozens of government soldiers with just a single knife. He'd throw the enemy off guard with the innocent frankness of a young boy. Then he'd prey on them with the cold cruelty of a hunter. He spoke a little German so his enemies called him, "Frank Jaeger" Soldiers, hear my words! The Cold War will soon be over.
For the United States and the Soviet Union no longer have the strength or authority to shape the world as they seem fit. Even as America sinks deeper into the quagmire of the Vietnam War, her allies in the West have achieved tremendous economic growth. And with the collapse of its planned economy, Russia can no longer keep up with the financial demands of her vast army. But the end of the Cold War does not mean that peace will follow. Freed from the domination of the world's superpowers, nationalism will soon be the driving force behind global politics.
And the ever-widening gap between rich and poor will fan the flames of hatred between nations. Nuclear weapons will slip from the superpowers' grasp and spread throughout the world. Soon no one will know when or where the nukes will come from. Today's ally may be tomorrow's bitter enemy. Who of you can say that tomorrow you won't be aiming your rifles at your neighbors? Is there no one who has a grudge against you? No one who mocks you?
No one who really needs you? Is there truly no one out there who would kill you? One of my men is standing amongst you right now. His instructions are to kill you - for your betrayal. Your enemy is standing right beside you. This planet is like a giant bomb. See how easily it blows itself to bits with a single nuclear warhead.
Or rather, a single bullet. Why are you still alive? I used to get dreams, about my comrades. They would save me with strong arms and laughing voices. When I woke up from these dreams, I had nothing. No joy, no sorrow, no hatred, no memory. When I woke up from the darkness, all I saw were the bodies of men I've killed, lying in front of me.
No matter how good a man you are, no matter how good a soldier, there are no exceptions. Even if I don't kill them, they die.
As the weather warms, people and snakes are destined to meet
This world is full of death and yet you won't be killed. Why do you still live? What do you hope to accomplish by living? Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots [ edit ] Old Snake: It's no longer about nations, ideologies or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines.
War, and its consumption of life, has become a well-oiled machine. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. The age of deterrence has become the age of control.
All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield, controls history. When the battlefield is under total control, war This is only the beginning, Snake. America will descend into chaos It'll be the Wild West all over again. No law, no order. Fire will spread across the world. The people will fight Everything has its beginning.
But doesn't start at "one. The world is born The moment zero becomes one is the moment the world springs to life. One becomes two, two becomes ten, ten becomes Taking it all back to one solves nothing.
So long as Zero remains, one And so our goal was to erase Zero.1ST TIME WE MADE THESE SNAKES!!!! JASON NASH MEET UP!! - BRIAN BARCZYK
Even the mighty Patriots began with a single man. That one man's desires grew huge, bloated; absorbed technology; began to manipulate the economy. We realized too late that we had created a beast. We had helped turn Zero into Atfirst i cute but when im walking i feel scared and afraid to touch and will bite me. In my dream i felt somerhing bag ahappened but soon those snake is the one who is afraid to go near me.
Celeste November 3, My dream seems pretty different than others…i had a dream that there were many snakes in my bedroom but they were all hidden…like under the bed railings. In this particular dream it was tons of big snakes slithering all over outside and just going their way into holes I never felt fear or anything.
I am not sure about this because I love exotic snakes such as albino pythons,boa constrictors those type, but in this dream they were all shades of camouflage like. In a way I felt calm than I usually do when I have snake dreams so it was just weird I did not freak out and I am very superstitious so would truly love to know the meaning behind it.
SnakesEverywhere November 19, This was mine. I was outside and there were dogs there… big dogs. They were protecting my wife and I from the big snakes. They were huge and everywhere. They would raise up and twist around each other, but never reach out to us, only reveal more of them as we fled. Call or go to a hospital emergency department immediately. Do not try to capture the snake—it could bite again. And do not bring the snake with you.
Physicians do not need to see it, and taking a venomous—and angry—snake into an emergency department is a bad idea. However, take a photo if you can do so safely. Do not apply a tourniquet or use a venom extractor kit. Do not apply ice. On average, there are fewer than 10 fatal snakebites per year in the United States. Arnold says to not be surprised if you do not immediately get antivenin. The first thing medical professionals will do is monitor your vital signs and observe the swelling around the bite.
In some cases, it's not, even for venomous bites.
