I'm aiming for the tree humping, we'll see how that goes.
If Supremacy gets formation bonuses and mutual support effects and Purity is about raw Massive Everything I'm guessing Harmony will be the most conditional -terrain bonuses, many and manifold, with a touch of terra(?)forming.
Rather like Xenomorphs in tanks, perhaps.

More like Predator Navi.  High growth rate, immunity to Miasma (toxic clouds, essentially), ability to call in Dune-like Siege Worms on cities.  And the genetically engineered creatures, don't forget those.  They also probably get less "heat" from creatures as well, since that's going to be a thing in this game.

Y'know, if the American Reclamation Corporation is essentially "FaceGoogle", does that make Harmony ARC a nation of furries, considering all the hybridization that goes on?
I am probably going to regret asking that question.  Tongue

Aw, who am I kidding?  Give me big armor, and even bigger guns!  Grin  Still flip flopping between ARC and SF, though.  Definitely will RP more with the SF.

"Did you know that I make my officers watch replays of their soldiers dying, [Al]?  Not to excess, of course, but always at least once.  I wanted to make sure that they all feel the full weight of their decisions, to constantly remind them of the price that war brings.
Today I've waived that order.  Not a one shall watch a single second of video of what happened.  Not a one, except for me.  I am going to carry that burden alone, from this day forward.  That is the choice I've made.
Just as it was your choice to push that button, [Al].  Do you feel the full weight of what you just did, like I feel it?  Considering how much you've probably replaced, I somehow doubt it.  So I'm going to remind you.  I'm going to remind you of pain.  Remind you of agony.  Remind you of the price of war.

Remind you that some lines are better left un-crossed."

New intel on the next Call of Duty game's technology

Let's see... Exo-suit?  Check.  Advanced vehicles?  Check.  Hover bike?  Check.  Plasma Rifle?  Might have to reference that for a Stargate/XCOM campaign.

3D Printer Rifle?  Wabbadda wuuhh??  Yes, apparently you load "Liquid Matter" into it, and it prints your ammunition on the spot.  That sounds awesome.

In other news, an up to date, though still WIP, look at Civ: BE.  And a look a the Purity faction.

I'm still up in the air how I want to play this (if my comp can handle it, of course Tongue).  Currently I'm split between ARC and the Slavic Federation as my faction, and while I'm currently leaning Purity, Supremacy just looks so cool.  At the very least, I will probably play ARC as some sort of techno-geek culture (with city names giving off a computer vibe), with the SF having Outer Heaven as it's capital.  Yes, I plan to go there with the SF.  Harmony can go back to hugging space trees for all I care.

Oooh, y'know what?  While it would be cool to play as a secret government sleeper agent trying to help re-build civilization, I was surfing the web when I found this.  Now I want to play a spin on the classic gas-mask mook.  Maybe a more serious take on the Pyro?  A soldier so psychologically damaged by what happened, that he wears a gas mask all the time?

Psssst.  Hey, wanna be in the next Star Wars movie?  100% legit, and you get to donate to charity in the process!

Also, it's now officially Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Publicity stunt. No different then the high volume arbitrage trading computers screwing up the markets on a daily basis.

True, but isn't it always the little steps that ultimately get past us?  What if those trading computers start screwing up the markets intentionally?

They are. That's the whole point of high frequency trading.

Gasp!  It's already begun!

Yeah, I have no idea what I'm talking about.  Tongue

See, whether they be shambers or runners, all this posits fairly standard 'dumb' zombies that are pretty much all autonomic reaction.

Does Z-Corps have the facility to model sentient or even flat out sapient zombies -- or what has become perhaps my favourite take, the 'cognitive zombie', aka the orc from the Subterrestrial Operations Theatre -- that have the capacity to learn and adapt to survivor behaviour?

That is the question, though, isn't it?  What type of zombies are we dealing with here?  Are they Walkers or Runners?  Or both?  Are there L4D mutant bosses?  Are there "hive leader" zombies that direct packs around?

You're going have a bloody short list of volunteers to go rescue politicians, just sayin'.
You're going to have an even shorter list of analysts who suggest its a viable mission.
EVERYBODY WINS.
Certain people would fall under the "save at any cost" umbrella. No matter what you think of the individual in the position, President, Vice President, Speaker, and the Secretary of State would fall under those just because of their position.

Yeah, aside from the four Coyote mentions, politicians would probably be pretty low on the list.  Now celebrities, that's going to be an interesting discussion.  I can honestly see someone intentionally hunting down (and ridding the world of) reality show stars.  Tom Cruise could go either way, though a world without Morgan Freeman would be difficult to fathom...

Artificial Intelligence Joins Venture Capital Firm's Board of Directors

Man, it's really starting to feel like the 21st century, now doesn't it?

So I've made a character.
Not mechanically of course, but setting-appropriate (I think), properly motivated, and otherwise good to go. Cool

Heh, me too.  Ironically, he's inspired from something intended to break the constant apocalypse=zombies pattern.

For the same reason as any other disaster, securing POTUS's body will be paramount, as is anyone with a high security clearance.  Knowledge of any secret bases, codes, and/or resources will be too valuable to just leave wandering around the wasteland, and if a cure is viable, then you must assume someone else has it.  Last thing you need is some  nutjobs who got lucky raiding a lab capturing the President, curing him, then interrogating him for what he knows.  Sure, it might be remote, but so is a zombie disaster.

CDC scientists are a no brainer (no pun intended).  Spending cure to speed up creating more cure is a good investment any way you look at it.  Veterinarians, on the other hand, less so.  Particularly the ones in my area.  Tongue

I've always wondered why humans aren't more like ants.

Dude, if we were more like ants, we'd have a zombie outbreak already.  Tongue
