Diablo III for now, but ARMA II with the DayZ mod is on deck (and installed).

Dead State - Kickstarter

This looks promising.

It's being developed by some industry veterans, with a decent amount of progress already made based on updates from their website.

Re: J-Quake

It was upgraded again to a 8.9. There have also been numerous large aftershocks, at least one in the 7 range, and another in the high-6 range that took place much closer to Tokyo than the main quake.

Re: Mexico becoming a failed state?

It looks like the Mexican government is taking sides in the cartel wars, or at least one side seems to think so. The attack on US consulate workers a while back was apparently an attempt to get the US to intervene in the fighting. http://www.stratfor.com/weekly/20100804_mexicos_juarez_cartel_gets_de...

Re: China: The US is Insolvent and Faces Bankruptcy

I for one would applaud a collapse of the Chinese government, particularly after spending a good amount of time over the last year studying the Chinese legal system and political structure.

Re: Mexico becoming a failed state?

40 billion? a year? :shock: no wonder they do what they do. Look a few pages back for a StratFor piece that details the money. What's more, the drug money is almost all profit. If a group of legit companies earn $40 billion, they might net $4 billion profit or 10%. More likely $1.5 to $2.5 billion....

Re: USB Drives

I agree the drive itself is one of the coolest ones I've seen, but I believe you can get pretty much the same functionality in any USB drive with Passpack, TrueCrypt, TOR, and the portable-apps version of Firefox, all of which can be had for free.

Re: Urban Dead

Doc, if you're still in the Dunell Hills area, the DHPD RP is inside St. Lo's in case you need a stick. We had a large break-in at Dury last night and took casualties, so the queue is a bit longer than usual at the moment.

Re: Urban Dead

If you're still active, why don't you join the DHPD? We're currently in the process of regrouping after an operation at Ackland -- another living body would be greatly appreciated. If interested, stop by the boards at dhpd.tk and introduce yourself as a ZSer.
