« Mon May 25, '15, 3:56 pm »   Interesting the Dev spoke at the CDC. I was actually considering applying there, as patient care wears my patience. And my 8 years in the military would count toward retirement....gotta check this game out. what platform?
« Mon May 25, '15, 4:32 am »   Awesome-sauce be us!
« Mon May 25, '15, 4:22 am »   We're all awesome.
« Sun May 24, '15, 7:40 pm »   (That goes for everyone else, too! =p)
« Sun May 24, '15, 7:40 pm »   ^_^x Atliiiiiin, go post in New Millennium! =p
« Sun May 24, '15, 8:59 am »   Rawr!You guys rock!
« Sat May 23, '15, 6:02 am »   Well worth checking out for any public health person. After all, the dev has given talks at the CDC.
« Sat May 23, '15, 6:00 am »   Really, the only major oversight I can think of offhand is no transmission pathway for food supply. So I couldn't replicate The Last of Us once I unlocked the fungal plague. And each pathogen type does have different strengths and weaknesses and play styles.
« Sat May 23, '15, 5:59 am »   In Plague Inc., you start off only with the bacteria available. You can unlock virus, fungus, parasite, prion, nanovirus, bioweapon, and then a couple specials. So far I've unlocked the virus, fungus and parasite.
« Fri May 22, '15, 9:31 pm »   (Disclaimer: I haven't played it. One of my friends owns it and I saw him play it.)
« Fri May 22, '15, 9:15 pm »   But thank you for the info. I will check out the game.
« Fri May 22, '15, 9:13 pm »   Oh dear, apologies for the grammar and typos below, I often disregard to proofread my auto dictation. (post=host etc)
« Fri May 22, '15, 9:07 pm »   The tie-in scenario for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is totally free, though! =p
« Fri May 22, '15, 9:07 pm »   From what I saw of Plague Inc., you have the choice at the beginning to start as things like a bacteria, virus, fungus, and you have to unlock stuff like the zombie-inducing virus.
« Fri May 22, '15, 8:51 pm »   This pandemic/epidemic game which relates disease, do you play as a bacteria, or virus? I would think if anything, the most strategic choice would be to play as a virus and stay in mutate the months and form resistances you've all by changing the genetic code of invade. They can not only mess with the DNA, but also the RNA of the post they invade, which then really can cause a major change in the really aid in the genocide of whatever host the virus invades. A concept which is even cooler, is that viruses can use bacteria, thus a bacteriophage, to help it evolve and basically use the bacteria as a factory or power plant to change, produce, and gain new abilities. It is very similar in that case to leveling up, or gaining some sort of class promotion or change, like an RPG. So I wonder what this game is like, and how realistic it is. I was very let down when I had first played , Trauma Center for the Nintendo DS, since it lacks any true realism. Not that games need to be real and they are games and fiction, however a strategy game regarding something in a medical or public health sense, would provide an education, and still yield a lot of strategy and fun if done correctly.

« Thu May 21, '15, 7:29 pm »   Not my doing ;_;
« Thu May 21, '15, 12:31 pm »   Someone broke Atlinsmere again. I blame Snorb.
« Thu May 21, '15, 10:08 am »   Woof Woof Fringers... Woof Woof
« Wed May 20, '15, 5:18 pm »   I've been having more trouble with Greenland than Iceland.
« Wed May 20, '15, 5:40 am »   Happy Birthday to Xellos on Wednesday, May 20. :cake:
« Wed May 20, '15, 2:06 am »   That's actually quite intriguing, and I can see the appeal. Trust me. :p
« Tue May 19, '15, 8:08 pm »   I've heard about that, or something similar. Allegedly, it's quite difficult to wipe out Iceland :p
« Tue May 19, '15, 6:29 pm »   I think I'll just stick to Chroma Squad and remain too scared to play Five Nights at Freddy's. =p
« Tue May 19, '15, 6:20 pm »   It's grim for sure, but pretty engaging and it appeals to my public health nerd.
« Tue May 19, '15, 4:53 pm »   That's... not my idea of a good time.
« Tue May 19, '15, 3:46 pm »   Oh, and you actually play as the disease. It's pretty simple, but strategic, as you have to evolve your disease with new abilities, symptoms, and transmission pathways, with the goal to wipe out humanity before they find a cure.
« Tue May 19, '15, 3:45 pm »   As the name suggests, it's basically a pandemic simulator. Except the models for how diseases actually spread are so realistic that the developer has given talks at the CDC.
« Tue May 19, '15, 4:34 am »   Sounds like a fun game; never heard of it myself. XD
« Tue May 19, '15, 4:30 am »   Discovered Plague Inc. for 99 cents on the iOS app store today. Have had that wish listed on Steam for a while but never got it. And seeing as how it provided great entertainment during a long train ride...
« Sun May 17, '15, 1:59 am »   no tacos for me till I get paid ;_;
« Sat May 16, '15, 8:24 pm »   Missed Taco Tuesday...so, it's Taco Saturday tonight! Yay!!
« Sat May 16, '15, 7:05 pm »   Woo, posted in the PS New Millennium game! (It's been two months. Waaah)
« Fri May 15, '15, 6:01 pm »   Thank you gents! Now I have to get it approved and find a director...and jump through a few other hoops.
« Fri May 15, '15, 8:57 am »   indeed
« Fri May 15, '15, 4:53 am »   Awesome, WB!
« Fri May 15, '15, 3:24 am »   Great to hear WB!
« Thu May 14, '15, 6:19 pm »   Don't listen to whatever the other one says.
« Thu May 14, '15, 6:19 pm »   I am the right me.
« Thu May 14, '15, 5:40 pm »   Except for proofing, I have finished my research proposal! The amount of work in that alone is probably reflective of the work that goes into the actual thesis...except the thesis is even more.
« Thu May 14, '15, 3:51 pm »   I love tacos, but never had any of the other aformentioned foods. Granted I guess burritos count too I suppose... :p
« Thu May 14, '15, 12:29 pm »   Gah, time travelers always have that problem =p
« Thu May 14, '15, 8:28 am »   uh, the first "me" was an accident
« Thu May 14, '15, 8:27 am »   Me neither
« Thu May 14, '15, 8:27 am »   ME
« Wed May 13, '15, 11:38 pm »   In my life I ate fajitas, tortillas and such but I don't recall eating tacos ever.
« Wed May 13, '15, 9:06 pm »   We did Taco Tuesday last week. It would have been a crime not to, since it was also Cinco de Mayo ;)
« Wed May 13, '15, 6:43 pm »   I just did my full weightlifting routine followed by a 1 hour Yoga class. I NEED PROTEIN
« Wed May 13, '15, 5:28 pm »   I am so close, SO CLOSE, to having a finished research proposal...
« Wed May 13, '15, 3:52 pm »   that's correct
« Wed May 13, '15, 3:01 pm »   Granted it's Wednesday..
« Wed May 13, '15, 3:01 pm »   Tuesday? Taco TUESDAY!
« Wed May 13, '15, 8:40 am »   yeah I agree bird
« Wed May 13, '15, 1:22 am »   It's Tuesday! Yay! Tacos... >.>
« Tue May 12, '15, 10:21 pm »   The fact that it seems every day and month is something-or-other day/month has cheapened the very concept of special days and months to me.
« Tue May 12, '15, 7:52 pm »   Umm... happy Mieu day? =p
« Tue May 12, '15, 9:24 am »   and I never know which one it is
« Tue May 12, '15, 9:24 am »   gosh, it feels like it's a special day every day
