    Post what you want. I think if it became a thread dedicated to multiple zombie related things it would be considered a megathread and then be locked.

    Walking Dead looks really good, though.

    its only a megathread if everyone starts whining "it goes in the zombie thread" whenever someone posts something vaguely related elsewhere

    which is retarded

    That makes more sense to me. I haven't checked the rules lately and never really know how each mod looks at something like that.

    the megathread thing is just a reaction to the forum's tendency to start segmenting conversations into seperate chat threads about specific topics that become their own little insider communities and the inevitable stifling of conversation that comes about because of it whenever someone posts a new thread about, say, a new book coming out when there is already a book thread.

    basically the way the web comics thread is right now, which is one of the last little megathreads going on. Not sure why it is given special treatment, but I'm not a mod, so it ain't for me to judge.

    woah

    Walking Dead looks way better then it has any right to

    They were making the zombie actors do a week or two of "zombie acting school" before filming started. I really just wanted to sign up for that, regardless of being on camera or whatever, but the schooling was unpaid and I was trying to schedule interviews for real jobs at the time. Now, I still don't have regular work and feel dumb for skipping out.

    Yeah, but how could you have known? It would have been cool, but spending that time trying to find a real job was probably the wiser decision.

    This reminds me of a zombie game, me and a few friends dreamed up a few years ago.

    It had similar goals and concepts, having like having limited control of NPCs, Diablo style view, and focusing on disaster survival.

    The big difference was the setting and the idea of having classes.

    The game we wished we could create, was set in a modern university.

    It would be a fairly open territory with objectives for different factions (many of which would be specific schools in the university).

    The survivors that you saved, would have "Majors" for classes, and basic leveling would be limited to 1 to 16 "semesters".

    It was gonna be called "Zombie Invasion University", and we thought up expansions/sequels like "Alien Invasion University" and "Ghost Invasion University".

    Sigh, College was so fun.

    I'm really happy.

    People with talent have decided to make such a game.

    Maybe you can pick out your shelter as well?

    It's potentially a dream come true!

    Your shelter is a school.

    I would imagine sequels or expansions would allow you to change this, along with adding more content.

    oh man I thought this was just me

    I can't even explain why I don't do it anymore, my brain is calibrated differently nowadays

    I remember back when Halo 2 was coming out and I was basically checking the sites every day from about mid 2003 onwards and god I loved it so much

    then Halo 3 came out and I didn't care up until about a week before the release

    I'm still pretty apathetic about Reach even though I know I'll be getting it

    adding some Sims style shelter design in there would be a great thing.

    no I can't

    got turned down, dogg

    I got all the sub and unsub loans I can get, and it's way less then tuition

    they ain't lending to nobody who ain't got regular income and steady credit

    getting student loans without parents with rock-solid credit to co-sign with you is goddamn near impossible these days

    banks are spooked about loans

    I'm going to school way more then full time, so I can't work while I do

    my wife makes less then $30k a year

    and our expected family contribution is some $11k of that
