    • Armistice Day

      9 years ago

      grunt_seven

      Today in 1918, the first world war ended at 11 o'clock in the morning. This war was different than the one before it, it was the first industrialized conflict and the death toll was greater than any before. In the end the Great War claimed over 11 million lives and maimed many more both physically and mentally. To commemorate the sacrifice of the brave men the United States government made this day a holiday so that citizens for generations to come will always remember the horror and sacrifice of war. Soon this holiday came to commemorate all veterans who have served hence Veterans day.

      I for one hate and despise most if not all people but there is only one specific group of people who I care about and give the utmost respect, the men and women of our armed forces. I come from a long line of veterans in my family. My great grandfather was Mexican so he could only be a mechanic but served in the army air force in WW2, my grandfather Alberto did the same, my grandfather Jim volunteered to go to Vietnam and ended up going back numerous times, my grandfather on my mothers side, Charles serves as an anti air craft gunner in WW2, and lastly my father served in the Navy Sea Bees during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. I have yet to join but I do plan on it.

      It is the duty of all Americans to serve in the military, to safeguard the country and freedom. Because freedom is a gift that is paid in blood and sacrifice and it needs to be cherished and nurtured.

      Also, it was the 234th birthday for the Marine Corps. So happy late birthday Marines, Semper Fi.

      Well here is my video game situation, I have a lot of games on reserve right now and on top of that the kick-ass Modern Warfare 2 edition of the Xbox 360. I have Brutal Legend coming up next week, then Borderlands two weeks after, then I'm gonna be tied up with Modern Warfare 2 for a good bit, at least until Assassins Creed two comes. I think I'm gonna have an overdose of awsomeosity, talk about melting my face off.

      Brutal Legend is going to be fucking awesome. I've been waiting for a game like this forever. I love Metal and I don't think they could have done this game without Tim Schaffer. That guy is a genius, I don't think I have played his earlier games but I have heard nothing but good things, so Brutal Legend should kick some ass.

      Border lands is another of those long awaited games for me. I have wanted a Road Warrior experience since I saw Mel Gibson in that kick ass leather outfit. I have mixed feelings about the graphics change, it is either going to be good but cartoonish or it is just going to be a piece of crap. The graphics in a game can really make it or break it, and I wish they would have kept in the original graphics it would be a better experience in my opinion.

      Modern Warfare 2. Enough said, although that new trailer is fucking crazy I can't wait for that game to come out I'm not even going to go to sleep that night or school the next day.

      Then the long awaited sequel to Assassins Creed. That game is going to melt some face, that first game was amazing and if you didn't like it you sucked at it, plain and simple. The game taking place during the Renaissance just makes it all the better.

      Ok got some bad news for anyone who still watches me, I'm retiring the zombie survival guide. I hardly ever get on here anymore so I thought I should just stop it. Other than that I'm going to try and get on more, which, I think, will be possible since school is about to start up again. So I'll have hours of mind numbing boredom to over come. Anyways, I guess I'll see you around.

    • Zombie Survival Guide Part: LXII

      10 years ago

      Continued from last post...

      E. Prepare Your Gear
      As with land warfare, the right equipment and weapons will be crucial to your survival. The most common respiratory aid is scuba (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus). If none is available, jury-rigged compressors and rubber hoses provide a workable if not perfect substitute. Handheld searchlights are a necessity. Even in the clearest water, zombies could be lurking in sheltered, darkened nooks. Spear guns should always be though of as a primary weapon. Their ability for skull penetration from a safe distance is shared by no other aquatic weapon. Another powerful device is the diver's "bang stick," essentially a twelve-gauge shotgun shell at the end of a metal pole. Both these weapons are rare, however, in all but coastal areas. In their absence, look for nets, hooks, or homemade harpoons.

      F. Integrated Attack
      Nothing is more frightening than surfacing from an underwater sweep to find zombies waiting on your boat! Always work in concert with surface units. If your team consists off ten people, take five underwater and leave the rest "on the roof." This will allow for a quick rescue if the tide of battle turns. A surface group can also aid in scouting, killing, and calling in reinforcements from land. As a general rule of all combat strategies, the more dangerous the environment, the more support is necessary.

      G. Observe Wildlife
      We have already established that birds and animals can signal the approach of zombies. The same is true for fish. It has been proven that aquatic wildlife can detect even minute traces of Solanum-infected flesh as it floats off a zombie's body. Once they do they consistently and immediately flee the area. Underwater hunters have always reported zones completely devoid of fish right before encountering an underwater zombie.

      H. Killing Methods
      Do not discount any of these tactics as fantastic or unreliable. As ludicrous as some of them may sound, all have been repeatedly tested in antizombie, underwater combat. All have shown remarkable success.

      1. Sniping: Substitute a speargun for a rifle and water for air, and it is basically the same tactic. As a speargun requires less range than a rifle, the diver will find himself in greater danger. If the first shot misses, never reload on the spot! Swim to a safe distance, lock in another spear, then re-engage your target.

      2. Spearfishing: This is used if a head shot proves too difficult. Attach a metal line to the end of a spear, and aim for the ribcage. Once the zombie is skewered, your surface team can haul it up for disposal. Keep in mind that these zombie still have the ability to attack. If possible, try for a head shot from a rifle the second they break the surface. This will require great coordination between a diver and the surface team. One past foul-up resulted in an unwary team hauling wat they believed was a destroyed zombie to the surface. Their screams were not heard by the incompetent diver below.

      3. Hook and Line: Attach a harpoon to a section of rope. Use it to spear the target zombie, then have your surface team haul it up. Boat or meathooks, fastened to the end of the harpoon, decrease he chances of loosing your target during the ascent. If the water is clear and shallow enough, the process of harpooning could be conducted entirely from aboard a boat. Again, as with the spearfishing, the "reeled-in" ghoul must be disposed of before it comes close enough to strike.

      4. Netting: Surface teams will be your primary source of attack, with divers acting only as scouts. Fish or cargo nets should be dropped on the target ghoul, then used to bring them to the surface. One major advantage of netting is that the zombies you haul aboard should be too tangled in the net to strike out at you. Of course, "should" is a very dangerous word. Many a hunter was fatally wounded by zombies that "should" have been easy kills.

      This day in 1918, all across the western front of ww1 the guns fell silent at 11 o'clock AM. This marked the end of ww1, the war that took the lives of over 10 million soldiers. As a tribute to the U.S. soldier that fought in ww1, President Woodrow Wilson announced on November 12, 1918, that this day would be know as Armistice Day, today we still celebrate this day as Veterans Day.
      There are very few people in this world that have my utmost respect, and those people are the ones who wear and have worn the uniforms of the U.S. Military. I thank you for your service, and I wish you nothing but the best in life. I would be spending the day with the Vets in my family, but alas, the retail industry does not get days off, so I'm working, but you know what at least I have a job. So go out to day and celebrate our Men and Women in the military, hug a Vet or at least thank them for giving up some of their lives to ensure you have your freedoms and the great gift of Democracy.

      Sorry guys, I haven't had much time to post a new ZSG entry, I've been busy with..er, stuff... ok, I'm just too lazy to do it, I've been doing a lot of school work and playing the shit out of Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Fable 2, and on Friday, Gears of War 2. I try and find some time to satisfy ya'll, hopefully tommorow I don't have much going on.

    • UPDATE, hooray!... or not

      Sorry guys no zombie survival guide today, to busy and I forgot to bring it to school with me, sorry. But, on the other hand, I got saints row 2, and initially, I was extremely disappointed. The graphics are virtually the same as well as the game-play, the only things that seems to have changed is the story line and the customization options, oh and now you can ride motorcycles, wee... I guess. Basically the game is a giant update, nothing real fancy, don't get me wrong if you did like saints row 1 by all means buy it, but if you are like me and hated it, don't buy it, although it is starting to grow on me. My favorite aspect of the game is the story line, its good and I'm not gonna spoil it for those who are going to buy the game.
      Also I have fable 2 on reserve and am going to hopefully pick it up tomorrow, if not on Thursday, that shouldn't be a disappointment. After that I gotta go pick up my reserve of fallout 3, the week after that its my reserve of gears 2, that otta kick some ass, the week after that it is my reserve of call o' duty world at war, gonna finally fight some Japs outside of medal of honor, then finally the week after that it is left 4 dead, then I'm done till around February. I promise to get up a zombie survival guide entry tomorrow, cause I gotta study for a mid-term I know nothing about tonight, wish me luck.

      Continued from last post...

      Strategies continued

      11. Underwater Battles
      Never forget the possibility of ghouls stumbling into nearby water before you declare an area secure. Too often humans have repopulated "cleared" zones only to be attacked days, weeks, even months later by zombies who have just recently found their way back to dry land. Because the undead can exist, operate, even kill in a liquid environment, hunting them may require occasional underwater warfare. This can be extremely hazardous, as water is not the natural environment for humans. The obvious problems of breathing and lack of communication, mobility, and visibility make an underwater zone the most difficult for hunting the undead. Unlike escaping by water, in which you have the advantage over them, searching and sweeping this alien environment will tip the balance firmly in a zombie's favor. This does not mean that an underwater hunt is impossible. Far from it. Ironically, its difficulty has been known to keep hunter more alert and focused than in more familiar environments. The following general rules apply to any successful subaquatic hunt.

      A. Know Your Zone
      How deep is the body of water in question? How wide? Is it landlocked (pond, lake, reservoir)? If not, where are the exits to larger bodies of water? How is underwater visibility? Are there an sunken obstacles? Answer all these questions before proceeding with the hunt.

      B. Scan from the Surface
      Hooking on scuba gear and blindly diving into zombie-infested water is a wonderful way to mix the two childhood terrors of being eaten alive and drowning. Never submerge before thoroughly searching the area from shore, dock or boat. If murky conditions or extreme depth prevent the use of naked eyesight, artificial means can always be employed. Sonar devices, common echo rangers found in civilian fishing boats, can easily detect something as large as a human body. Surface scans do not always confirm whether a zone is infested or clear. Underwater obstacles such as trees, rock formations, or sunken debris can obscure a zombie's shape. If even a single one turns up, however, the next rule should be observed.

      C. Consider Drainage
      Why place your team in a hostile environment if that environment can be removed? Ask yourself the question: Is it possible to just empty the body of water? If so, even if it costs more time and effort than a submarine hunt, by all means proceed. Most of the time, however, this is not a viable option. to eliminate the menace below, your team will have to follow it down.

      D. Find an Expert
      Are any of your team licensed scuba divers? Have any of them ever worn scuba gear? How about simply snorkeling while on vacation? Sending inexperienced men and women underwater could kill them all even before they make contact with zombies. Drowning, asphyxiation, nitrogen narcosis, and hypothermia are only a few of the numerous ways that air-breathing animals such as ourselves can meet their fate beneath the waves. If time permits--for instance, if zombies are cornered in a landlocked body of water--find someone to either train and lead you team, or even to undertake the mission on his own. But if you believe that zombies have fallen into a river and could wind up near another town soon, waiting for the experts is not an option. Be ready to take the plunge, but be ready for the consequences.

      This has probably been done before and I'm to lazy to look through all 1 Billion of the threads on this site, so sue me. Anyways, the craziest thing I have heard and the funiest, is this dialogue.

      GTA4 player 1: Hey, I thought you got your Xbox taken away?
      GTA4 player 2: Yeah, I did but there was this dead racoon in our front yard and my mom said if I picked it up that I could have my xbox back.
      Hitman92fs(I think that was his gamertag): (in the really deep almost darth vader, borderline rapist voice) Did you rape it?
