Wait, who said the ending of The Road was happy but bittersweet? It's totally ambiguous ... it's end with blind faith that could swing either way. I'm trying not to spoil things here, but man that ending I felt could be seen as a devastating mistake or a chance worth taking.

Also I know the writers of the game tried to make it clear the surgery was the only solution, but when has science that experimental been 100% accurate? They're trying to cure a deadly, highly contagious disease... I don't care how many journals and recordings they leave around any reasonable person would have to assume this is not guaranteed to work and that patient should be told of what is about to happen.

Less junk. You need LESS junk in your life as you get older.

How about, you know, doing some research? (yes, its a "thing")

I don't remember saying I'd done no research. You can read whatever online, and finding a Wikipedia page is pretty fucking easy, but I don't know what it's actually like on the ground for a typical person. And you don't either by the sounds of it.

Yeah I was there for a month over the summer, and now I've got ears growing all over my back.

It was never really a 'thing', at least not for the vast majority of Japan. No Japanese person I've met seemed worried about it.

So there't not like news reports on it? Like radiation updates or news on what's happening at the plant? I'm trying my best to not sound like a nut... I just think if it happened where I live it'd be news for quite a while.

It's like a little bonus really... but I see your point. There's too much junk in the game and too many menus. It's cluttered to hell and trying to quickly switch gadget/guns is impossible -- why can't I change my rocket launcher type for an engineer on the respawn screen for example... you have to go a few menus deep with loading in between.

Also carbines for all but PDWs for engineers only? Seriously, how the fuck did that make it into the game?

Apparently Tank Drivers in real life have PDWS...to defend their tanks. Maybe EA was trying to be authentic?

But yeah, Carbines are pretty much Assault Rifles for everyone. Can't see most people using a PDW over a Carbine.

PDWs were the go-to weapon for tight maps. An MP7 or M5K was great for any class in BF3 on Team Deathmatch ... but carbines feel to specialised too be a general use weapon... they don't have enough drawbacks like a PDW does. I didn't know that about tank drivers, so I guess it makes it "authentic" but I'd rather fun/balance over realism. Still, that's the least of the games issues right now haha

So after the tsunami and the power plant meltdown, which is still going on by all reports as the leaks continue, I'm wondering how safe Japan is to travel to? My general feeling and what I've read is don't go - it's more dangerous than we know and if the mutated sea life is anything to go by the country is in pretty bad shape. BUT it seems people still travel there and there's obviously a ton of people there...

I'm just wondering what the facts are... and people's anecdotes. Have you been recently? Are people in Japan worried?

I'm not some crazy shut-in who's scared of the world, I've travelled a bit and want to do more ... just curious really.
