    Fuck yeah, this generosity thing is awesome.

    I actually do have one:

    We're roughly 1.4 miles away from a shooting range. In case of an outbreak the initial plan to is head down via the smaller back roads leading to the range and pick up weaponry. weaponry of choice will be a .35 carbine as they can be loaded with and successfully fire several calibers of bullets. Most of which are mass produced and carried in most shops in the US. Thus allowing for the greatest possibility of ammo discovery.

    A handgun and axe will also be procured on site at the shooting range. From there it's down further south about another 2 miles to steal a motorcycle from the dealership and also head into the nearby small asian market to pick up food supplies such as pickled vegetables and the like. I'll then use the motorcycle to head north into the mountains where there are mostly small towns. (Living in georgia and all.) so I'll find myself a relatively remote town to set up camp in as I further stock supplies.

    Once I'm sufficiently supplied I'd then continue north, heading into the colder regions of canada, as zombies are apt to seize up in the extreme cold. I'll use a hiking guide to find a mounty cabin or a lumberjack lodge (Which I've checked and are marked on the guides you can pick up from visitor centers) and sequester myself off, setting up trapping lines, fishing and generally playing wilderness man for several months until things have gone from bad to worse. I'll then head out towards the nearest small town to see about killing off the probably zombified populace to secure any additional material supplies I may need or run out of in the interim.

    I have a more detailed plan including prefered street routes and the sort to get to my destinations but I figure this is long enough considering your average steam thread post. oops.

    OK, people at CAG are reporting that Amazon's downloadable version of Mafia II, currently selling for $12.50, can definitely be registered on Steam. That's the best price I've seen on that game. I think it was on sale in the $30 range during Steam's Thanksgiving sales.

    Man, if I could get Blur for 14.99 on a console, I totally would. I have a feeling that the PC community for that game is probably pretty small, and on top of that I am very ill equipped to play that style of game on my PC.

    First things first: get naked. It will make me more lithe and agile, plus the zombies probably won't care and those that do will probably want to avoid me. I may make an exception for some solid tennis shoes, though.

    Second: grease myself up. While this could have the side effect of making my glistening form more appetizing to your average zombie, I seriously doubt anything is going to be able to hold on to a greased-up, nude, fully-grown man long enough to make a meal.

    I may try to kickstart civilization again. But not if the above is an issue. Don't try to change me.

    The obvious place is to build your survival shelter in an active volcano, and have a retractable bridge over lava. In this manner you can kill infinite zombies by standing on the other side of the chasm and taunting the zombies with your delicious meats

    Way off topic, but I always wonder about people whose plans are to go to a gun store/shooting range and get guns. Won't there probably already be people there? Employees and so forth? And wouldn't they probably rather keep the guns for themselves? And have, you know, guns to prevent you from taking their guns?

    You have to realize there are a lot of warnings ahead of time concerning zombie outbreaks. Most people wouldnt even think anything is amiss until after the fact. Those of us who are prepared will act during the initial period, before the full blown outbreak. Only the unprepared would be scrambling once everyone is already in defense mode.

    Not to mention, you're eventually gonna run out of bullets. While I understand having a gun, your primary weapon should be some sort of melee weapon that can easily take off heads at a decent length. No need to worry about amunition.

    I think you'd get tired swinging an axe or sword before you'd run out of bullets, unless you don't have that many bullets

    I mean you can get a bag of a thousand shitty 9mm bullets online for like $75, if you're serious about the zombie apocalypse you should have at least 15000 bullets stockpiled.

    Living in a small town helps, I could get the zombie genocide achievement and still have like 5000 bullets left

    youd want a multitool weapon. like a crowbar to break into all the places that would likely be boarded up after the outbeak. it's steel so it wont bend to be useless and it can puncture skulls which is what you need. Titanium would best.
    But melee should not be a primary concern, you want to avoid rather then fight.

    Fuck yeah, this generosity thing is awesome.

    Alright, this is the one I worked out with friends like 3 years ago.

    We all make our way to Friend #1's house. We are in Canada where nobody has guns, and he has a shotgun and a luger, so I figure 2 guns is better than no guns.

    Then we go to friend #2's house. His Dad has a boat, so we'd get the keys and head to the dock, which is really damn close, like 10 blocks away. We could probably make it.

    So we pile into the boat and go out to this little island in the middle of the lake. We'd be safe there as there's no way zombies can manage walking underwater. There's also this awesome little tower in the water near the island, it sits on a block of concrete and there's no way zombies could get up there. If anyone didn't feel safe on the island, we could easily sleep in the tower.

    edit: Oh yeah, our supplies would mostly consist of sleeping bags and canned goods and stuff. We'd bring a few tents to the island as well.

    As for weaponry, besides the guns, I'd probably bring a baseball bat. I have an old sword, but it's dull as shit and I'm no idiot, I probably wouldn't manage to chop any heads off with that thing.

    We'd wait out the carnage on the island, boat back to make supply runs. There's tons of stores near the water, so we really would have to go far to check out grocery stores. We could also start growing food on the island.

    Besides this plan, my friend and I were recently brainstorming, and he came up with a brilliant place to stay. On a train! It's so perfect. A big metal box that can just move when you get too surrounded. Trains are pretty high off the ground, I sincerely doubt that any zombie could manage to climb into one even if the doors were open. So I guess if our island exploded we could live in a train.

    Where would you carry all those, while maintaining other basic necessities such as food on your person? You carry too much and you start to slow yourself down from the burden of all the weight.

    And don't say it'll be in your car. Good luck keeping the vehicle gassed up.

    See, I don't think we need to be so worried about the zombie threat. It's not like we have to stock up on weapons or anything. What would you use against zombies, anyway? I'm sure we will be plenty safe in our homes, cuddled next to our loved ones, and reading our favourite bed-time stories.

    So, please. Do not barricade your homes, collect weapons, and start forming tight combat groups. I'm sure there are no zombies coming to eat your brains. We can just relax and keep our composure, right?

    Fuck yeah, this generosity thing is awesome.

    I have actually been preparing for this for some time and I believe I have made the most sacrifices and long-term plans to survive the coming zombie apocalypse.

    I used to make bank working for the man. I was a spook, I did what I was told and dug up the dirt on anyone who the man didn't like. I was swank I rode on my brand new wheels and smoked cigars with all my CEO pals.

    But one day I woke up and realized that not only were we all zombies in a figurative sense, chasing cash and power instead of brains, but we could all end up literal zombies in the blink of an eye. Maybe it would be war, or a plague or maybe it would just be a slow degeneration.

    So I laid out my options and I didn't like any of em. Buy a bunker in the middle of Montana from some whacked out nutjob and drive myself and my family crazy with boredom. Or stay in the city and develop an escape plan complete with topo maps of the surrounding countryside for 300 miles in every direction and a SUV packed with supplies for a month.

    Or purchase a small island and develop an army of robots, immune from any human diseases to be our servants and live out our lives in luxury.

    Well, the family put the kabosh on the first plan. The second plan was fraught with peril and unlikely to succeed in the event of a true apocalypse. And I quite simply didn't have the money for the third plan.

    After tossing for days in my sleep with dreams of my daughters and wife being eaten alive by a mass of mindless murdering monsters I sat up in bed one night and shouted "eureka!"

    The details weren't worked out, there were plenty of pitfalls but this plan just might work.

    We would move to a rural village in the Northeast close enough to friends and family and job opportunities that we wouldn't die of boredom or become paupers, yet far enough away from population centers to avoid a mass exodus or any spillover from an apocalyptic event. We had family in a small town in Vermont so we would have a support network.

    I found a job at the only tech company within 60 miles making enough to start laying up supplies for the day I knew would come.

    I bought a FN FS200, a couple hundred rounds of ammunition, a shotgun, a pistol and a few other miscellaneous firearms and armaments.

    A bought supplies that would come in handy such as wool blankets, oil lamps, first aid supplies and anything I might need in case of a complete collapse of infrastructure. Then, because no matter how much you have stockpiled, it will eventually run out if the lights NEVER come back on, I made sure our lifestyle was sustainable long term.

    We bought some sheep and chickens and pigs and learned how to raise them. We learned how to plant gardens and can and store up food. My wife learned to make bread and yogurt and butter. I started acquiring tools to flesh out a workshop for repairing things that might break. I even bought some tobacco seeds to learn how to grow and process that myself for the occasional back porch pipe.

    We bought a house that was off the grid. We're still on a generator but are installing solar panels sometime in the near future. My wife has horses so we can use the, for transportation or working the garden if the gas ever stops flowing.

    We stay connected to the rest of the world, we've got internet at the house and I still work a 9-5 job. But if Z-day every happens I know we'll be ready.
