What could be more manly than a convention featuring the Houston Texans Football, Rocket's Basketball, Astros Baseball, Aeros Hockey, Dynamos Soccer, and Energy Stadium Football organizations (oh, yeah, AND their Cheerleaders) and street machine car show and tailgating supplies and food vendors and a "Miss Guy" competition and a "beer-a-thon"?

For me, the only thing missing would be a way to bring my buds and PWN them in head to head competition.

What if there were a bunch of simulators that we could jump into and beat the living crap out of each other in futuristic virtual warfare?

Then, afterwards toast our victory with a round of beers while watching a replay of the battle proving our superiority!

THAT, my friends, is why MechCorps will be at "The Guy Expo" this November 6-8 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. We will be bringing EIGHT Virtual World Tesla II, BattleTech Cockpit Simulator Pods to this event to bring joy and smack talk to the other Guys in Houston. Read more about this event at

So, what is a BattleTech Pod? These marvels of science are fully enclosed military style simulators that feature 7 screens, over 90 control systems, and a 12 speaker surround sound system. When seated in the pod, the player pilots one of a selection of BattleMechs onto one of 25 landscapes to compete for battlefield superiority with those seated in surrounding cockpits. See more details about the pods at

You guys need to make a trip to Austin or Dallas or Waco...or Ft. Hood.

Given time and plenty of paper, a philosopher can prove anything.

Hey guys, if the schedule on their website is accurate, they'll be at Houston Con later this summer. Anyone up for a friendly bout of mech blasting goodness?
There'll be the devil to pay mate. Better make it good, eh?
