Finally. I hope the Mythbusters will do an episode on those magnets, they are awesome. You could imagine that it could wipe the hard drive of a laptop even without causing physical harm to it. Even a small magnet can do it if close enough.

I'm not sure if Steam will put a top selling game on sale. Arma is more than just DayZ though, I think its pretty good value even at the default price point. Its the most PC of any PC title :p

Definetly Dayz. But yes, zombies and realistic is a oxymoron.

I can't wait for season 5.

Also the breaking good podcast is pretty great, they do recaps after every episode.

as long as you don't tell the stick where you are you will be fine. if it finds out though then im not sure.

Drop it in a sock and drive around the block two or three times before you go.

I occasionally visit Gamespot for their game and reviews archive. You can find info on a lot of games from the late nineties.

What I'd really love is something like Arma 2, but with a completely overhauled UI. The UI is, consistently, the thing that keeps me from really enjoying that game. There are menus on top of menus on top of menus to do something like order one of your troops to move to a specific point. I really believe that someone could look at all that stuff and streamline the entire thing without taking away from the ridiculous depth of that game. Unfortunately, from what few videos I've seen of the next game, Arma 3, it looks like the UI hasn't changed at all.

They tried to make the UI easier in Arma 2, but they did it by adding a (largely useless) new menu on top of the old one. And to make room for the new one, they hid the old one so you pretty much had to memorize the initial ten key-presses to use it. It was pretty much a disaster.

They say they are going to do something drastic with it in Arma 3. We will see I guess.
