Awesome Otacon (Metal Gear Solid) Clock Widget

February 26th, 2008

If you are a regular reader then you will know that I am dying in anticipation for the eventual release of Metal Gear Solid 4 for the Playstation 3. It really is tearing me up with anticipation. Anyways with my anticipation so high I have been doing whatever possible to curb the waiting pains.

This includes reading up about the series, viewing the franchise’s gorgeous artwork, pulling apart previously released trailers etc. During this time I was also in search for some Metal Gear propaganda and as I was searching around I stumbled upon this cool little Otacon clock widget for your desktop:

The sprites are taken from MGS2 (end of the Tanker chapter). As you move your cursor around Otacon follows it with his eyes, he also blinks as well. Very cute.

You can increase Otacon’s size, set an alarm and use various time modes. I love this little widget, helps ease those pains. So be sure to download yourself a copy from Konami’s website.

  • I read a post on destructoid today that MGS4 was coming on a 80GB PS3 that was backwards compatible with dual shock 3! In June – I’m sold!

  • Yeah I heard about that package and am thrilled. I will have to slap down a preorder sometime soon.

  • Hey Daniel,

    I’ve downloaded the widget. How do I make it run when Windows starts up?

  • I’m actually not too sure, I had attempted this before through msconfig (run> msconfig) and was unsuccessful. Try the Windows Cpanel or maybe google.

    I had eventually got sick of Otacon filling up my screen so I stopped using him.

    Anyone still downloading this widget? 

    Out the whole thing i your DOCUMENTS, create a shortcut of the program into your STARTUP folder in the start menu.
