    posted a message on HOW BOUT THAT STEAM SUMMER SALE?
    Quote from minermanbob

    One of the stalker games is on sale and I just want to ask is it good and what is the best game in the series?

    SoC and CoP are both very good. Misery for CoP is excellent. The story and lore of CoP makes more sense of you played SoC first. CS is good bug buggy.
    In order you should play.
    SoC-CS-CoP-mods for any of the above.

    I got
    Fallout: NV+DLC
    Arma 2: CO
    Company of Heroes
    Deus Ex: HR+DLC

    Leftie here. I've learned do most things right-handed though, most things I work with are designed that way.

    Not any more a rip off of minecraft than minecraft is of infiniminer and dwarf fortress. Yes there are similarities, no, one isn't ripped of the other.

    The problem is that the samurai's armor is terrible at actual protection, and the roman's sword is for stabbing, not slashing.

    Let's see what you can make! Maybe we could all team up and do some minecraft song together or something :)

    Okay, I'll upload a song or two. It will be this evening, EST at the earliest though.

    I play a number of instruments, mostly for my entertainment. I play enough gigs to make a little money though, enough to pay for strings anyways. I'd be glad to upload a few songs this weekend, if anyone's interested.

    posted a message on what weapon would you use if defeating monsters?
    Quote from Togfan

    As said, an M4 would be nice. Rifles are damn epic :D

    but I think for self-defense it'd be unpractical.

    Quote from Blootz

    Hence why I chose a bow. Arrows can be used for puncturing the body of the monsters, and for long distance, I'm a hell of a shot.

    Blootz: In what world is a bow with enough power to stop a monster a superior weapon to a M4? The M4 has superior penetration, reliability, maneuverability, range, and ease of use on its side, the bow has nothing.

    While not zombies per se, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R games fit pretty much all your criteria. Doubt you're still looking for a game though.

    Looks like you have wandered into the world of roguelikes. They are mostly very hard and very fair, but stay away from the 'hacks, which are not fair nor balanced.

    posted a message on Coolest gun to have during a apocolypse? - Vote for the best gun
    Quote from sevenstitch

    My response - may have sensitive material; younger members may not want to read
    22 LR may not have a large amount of stopping power, but there are advantages to them. First off, 22 rounds are cheap and plentiful.Almost all 22 LR rifles and pistols shoot long and short ammo, and many can shoot 22 mag ammo as well.

    A 22 round may not have true penetration power, but they damage soft tissue just as well as any other round. It's stated in many works of fiction and theoretical works that the only way to "shut down" a zombie is by damaging the brain with a fatal wound. 22 rounds may not always penetrate through a skull, but they can go through the eye-socket and once a 22 round enters the skull, it ricochets around in the brain-case, reducing the contents to Swiss cheese. Although I've outlined zombies in this example, I would expect similar results with a non-infected target. I know it is an effective technique for hunting small game and deer, at the very least.

    I'm not saying that larger calibers can't just blow a hole straight through a face, but have you ever heard a 22 round shot through a silenced revolver or rifle? I own one; It's akin to a baby's whisper. Taking out targets this way would be much safer in the event of a zombie outbreak, simply because it would arouse less attention to yourself.

    I'd trust my life to my rifle and pistol, and wouldn't trade them for anything else.

    EDIT: read your later posts, I'll agree that there are much more effective weapons that require less fineness, but a gun's effectiveness really depends on the skill of the user. A larger caliber or more bullets don't always matter with enough training, although they certainly help.

    Yes that is true. A .22 has advantages in abundant ammo and low recoil, so you can get the sight picture back quickly. A .22 will mess up soft tissue, however messing up soft tissue isn't generally regarded as a way to stop zombies, with the exception of the brain. A .22 will not penetrate large amounts of tissue effectively however, and will not be able to shatter bone. While a broken leg may not kill a zombie, it's still a broken leg, and so that's one less zombie that can chase you.

    A wat or a wat?

    Wikipedia says a p50 is one of several types of planes, and has no idea what a stinger shotgun is.
