WORLD WAR Z!!!!
« on: October 01, 2006, 10:27:20 am »
This book is amazing, very creepy and mature.  The North Koreans.... it's kinda scary what they did.  I wont spoil it but the South Koreans were freaked out by it to.  This Book pokes fun at dumbass military Generals and is a great read.  Im almost done with it and if your a fan of the Zombie Survival Guide, you'll probably like it too.

Great Book, didn't take too long to read and it never got tedious.
SPOILER... I... Guess... ;)
Seriously, when the movie comes out (YES! They ARE making a WWZ MOVIE!!!) I hope they explain the North Korean thing a little better... I mean, what the frell happened? Is that little theory true and there are tens of millions of underground zombies, or are they living underground with kim even more of a 'god' to them, being in complete and total control...? /shivers/ Scary :p  ;D ;)

It is very awsome, I think they should come out with a fps/survival where you hideout it randomly made cities waiting out fro the military to arrive, you would set the number of day and then wait as the zombies, quislings and f-cats attack you a long with crazed bandits. Maybe have a multi paly component co-op?  Who knows, if the movie sells well....

This book is amazing, plain and simple. Max Brooks has done his homework, and done even more thinking on the subject of the living dead than anyone else ever has. He took a totally unrealistic possibility and moved it into the realm of possibility, and that makes it all the more frightening and enjoyable. The perspectives in the book are interesting and you find yourself sympathizing with most of them. Plus, Brooks includes quite a few little facts that I'd never even pondered before, such as why Europe has so many castles and America has none. Overall, an excellent book worthy of being the follow-up to the ZSG.

And I eagerly anticipate the movie. I hope it retains the documentary-style feel of the book. How cool would it be if it was told through interviews and shaky home-movie clips as well as professional film and news coverage? Complete with the gritty feel and realistic tone, the movie could rock. I would see it for sure.

While you have a point, I never really thought of that. I usually miss the obvious things and see the more subtle things. Dunno why. It was just something I'd never really pondered, but it was pretty interesting once I read it.

I thoroughly enjoyed ZSG, so I cannot wait to pick this up. I do hope that if he does another zombie book, that it will be more comical, kind of like a 'Shaun of the Dead.'

Well, the whole mock-umnetory facade is totally wicked and if the movie sells (yes there is a movie) then maybe they will start making good, serious tacticl shooters about zombies.

It is very awsome, I think they should come out with a fps/survival where you hideout it randomly made cities waiting out fro the military to arrive, you would set the number of day and then wait as the zombies, quislings and f-cats attack you a long with crazed bandits. Maybe have a multi paly component co-op?  Who knows, if the movie sells well....

I would LOVE to see something like that. You get to be at Yonkers, Hero City, Raj-Shing's (SP?) Last Stand, it'd just be pure ownage. But what I'd really love to see is something that's real time... Where it starts at the beginning of the outbreak. Your completely customizable character is watching the news as the zombies slowly shamble towards your chosen city of residence, and your chosen house of residence... Then complete immersion happens as you get up. No HUD. Maybe an inventory screen that shows everything. Realistic inventory, at least. You can pick up anything and everything, and use it in almost every way possible. Realisitic physics. Realisitic AI. Zombies act as Max Brooks has deemed them too. You have realisitic hunger, food, and wounds. You must simply survive in your enviroment, whether it be an attempt to find the military and join up with them in hopes that they might save you, or whether it's you bunker up in your apartment building, it's just you being able to do WHATEVER you want in the midst of this zombie outbreak. I'd sell my soul to Satan for a copy of that and a system that could run it.

Kind of what I said, just a hell of a lot less push on realism?

Also, for those who want a quasi-realisitic zombie game that is at least SOMEWHAT like Max Brook's book, try Autumn War. I find it to be the best flash zombie game out there.

Umm, you quoted me twice.  But anyway, I have played Autumn War and it is fun.  The idea I was thinking of as pretty much your idea.  I dont like the whole total realism thing though.  I want a HUD, but everything else is fine with me.  I also think a  co-op mode like, you trapped in a "lost City" and you have to find the other players.  Each player knows the location of 1 player and so it's a hunt to find everyone then get out of the City.

That'd be nice. But remeber, without a HUD, there is more immersion. Ever play the King Kong game or Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth? You'd be suprised how much more immersed you are without a HUD.

No, I did not ever play those games.  I'll give up the hud IF I can have a laser aimer because all I need is a reticule.  You might wanna check out the Zombie mod and Left 4 Dead threads and check out those games.

I wouldn't exactly want an hud, but something similar, i.e. something that indicates that something is behind me because my character hears it.  So, kind of like a radar thing, but more realistic.  So yeah, a more realistic hud if possible.

I loved both World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide. Fun stuff, and very realistic, I thought.

If the author writes another book, I would like more historical examples of zombie outbreaks. I think that was my favorite part of the ZSG.

The historical accounts creeped me out the most!   They made me most afraid of the zeds.  My neck was sore for a week cuz I kept looking over my shoulder so much.

You wouldnt have that problem if you had realised the 'scientific' explanation of zombies is totally flawed  ;)

Make no mistake, I liked the ZSG and the historical accounts, but the premise that zombies can just keep going without oxygen and, importantly, without eating, is completely wrong. The zombies described in the book would only keep going for a day or two, max, before they just keeled over from starvation... maybe a fat zombie would do better.

Oh I know, absolutely.  Also, a virus infecting the brain would be nearly impossible, what with the blood brain barrier, and a virus changing the very nature of the brain from aerobic to anaerobic would be impossible.

That's why I theorized that whatever made zombies was actualy some kind of parasite, maybe a micro-organism, that controlled some parts of the brain that allowed for movement and interpretation of signals from the sensory organs, and lived off the rest of the brain.  This parasite would pass itself from host to host through direct body fluid contact (saliva, blood, etc.)  So, its not the hosts themselves becoming zombies, more like complex puppets.

Anyways, it wasn't the plausibility of zeds that creeped me out, but the accounts themselves.  I just have a wicked active imagination, and imagining getting eaten alive is not fun.

Theres still a massive problem: Its out-and out stated that Zombies have a non-functioning digestive system. Even the energy saved by shutting off higher brain functions and ceasing cell division and repair a zombie would only have enough reserves to last a matter of days.

Well then, I guess they feed on plot!  Its the only viable energy source.

Zombie Survival Guide was increadible and I hope to get WWZ soon.  Do you have your weapons stockpiled?  I do.  I've got crowbars and katanas and gladiuses and icechippers and daggers and oh so much more.
You can buy machettes at walmart for about eight dollars.

People talk about him with a disturbing revenance.....


"He is long gone.." makes it sounds as though he is some Dark Spirit form the Depths of the Internet who may rise up and cause havoc within our community.

I remember LadyM saying "It's finally over." when he was banned.

He's a Canadian guy with issues. Not some insane God from the Nether Hells who will one day rise again.

On the internet that is considered to be a demon.

He started a topic rallying the people of Canada to war against America. He started more arguments than people who have been here years and started on personal insults when he was losing.

He was crazy.

Look at the bottom of the page. They accept Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard and others. I ordered 5 books from there the 11th this month. They haven't arrived yet but four of them have been posted so they can arrive any minute now. They send the books (and other things) as they come so you don't have to wait for one item to come in stock.

I was really enjoying the book, but I was really annoyed by 'In fact, America had more persistent survivors per square mile because AMERICA IS AWESOME THATS WHY! U-S-A! U-S-A!"....because it highlight the slight tinge of xenophobia in the book. (The Redeker Plan is 'controversial', with heated debate, but Russia's atrocities are just plain evil. USA!)

Other than that, the book was fantastic. I really liked the Japanese Otaku character, and the Chinese Admiral.

EDIT: Wasn't too keen on the idea that Europe's monarch become autocrats again. For a start, there are only three countries in Europe that I can think of that are Constitutional Monarchies....Sweden, Britain and The Netherlands? France, Russia and Spain certainly got rid of theirs. Secondly, in a disaster of that size, I personally would put no faith in the Queen...most people in Britain are pretty hostile to the Monarchy from what I've seen.

I found this in my public library, in Sweden mind you. It was the last place I'd look!  ;D Anyway, it's a great book, suspenseful and imaginative. I can't really buy into the whole army vs zombie problem, but other than that it all played out realistically. Except maybe for North Korea. If the Ryugyong Hotel isn't some sort of clever ruse, there's no way that country could construct anything like that.

In the Zombie Survival Guide (Which, for those who don't know, is written by the same guy and based seemingly before WWZ) he says that it's still a mystery how they can survive. So it's not like he doesn't realize the problem.

U-S-A!"....because it highlight the slight tinge of xenophobia in the book. (The Redeker Plan is 'controversial', with heated debate, but Russia's atrocities are just plain evil. USA!)

Other than that, the book was fantastic. I really liked the Japanese Otaku character, and the Chinese Admiral.

EDIT: Wasn't too keen on the idea that Europe's monarch become autocrats again. For a start, there are only three countries in Europe that I can think of that are Constitutional Monarchies....Sweden, Britain and The Netherlands? France, Russia and Spain certainly got rid of theirs. Secondly, in a disaster of that size, I personally would put no faith in the Queen...most people in Britain are pretty hostile to the Monarchy from what I've seen.


Er... Spain is a moarchy too.

Not that i'd like myself other way tho....

Ontopic: A wonderful book. A perfectly tailored work of fiction for our geeky generation.

So apparently the film is set in Philadelphia but they're filming it in Glasgow.

It seems kind of weird that the zombie apocalypse would make Philadelphia get so much nicer, but there you go.
Not a winner anymore.

Dunno, they're using some abandoned Water Plant for filming.

But we're all happy because this means we get famous people in the pub.
