    Yeah, the real story behind it is crazy. They still see effects from it today, much the same as the Japanese do from the WWII bombings. Anyway, I can't wait to try out that game.

    one of the reactors overheated from a valve or pump failure if i remember correctly
    when they tried to flush out the reactor core to prevent the core from going critical (as in undergo a cataclysmic nuclear chain reaction) the core superheated the cooling fluid and blew up, caving in the roof of the reactor and firing tonnes of irradiated graphite (used for cooling) blocks that scattered hundreds of metres around the reactors radius. At the same time it spewed out a heapppp of radioactive ions in gaseous form, which pretty much made alot of the area downwind unusable for farming (as people began getting cancer from irradiated vegetables). They ended up having to build a concrete sarcophagus, or a thick shell over it.
    Its still radioactive today, and the radiation constantly damages the enclosure, which needs to be replaced periodically, at the risk of laborourers and structural engineers i can imagine.

    The town is uninhabitable...makes for a great game environment :)

    i got it just a few hours ago, i can just about run it on low settings but i aint got the 2gb of ram this game NEEDS to run smoothly.

    took some screenies for you to look at, some are at 1280x1024 (pics 1-11) and some at 1600x1200 (12-22 which have everything maxed out completely just for quality purposes)

    I wouldnt call it a waste of money......Maybe he will just have a high framerate all the time with minimal slowdown? ;) Also is even more positive to have that card for future games. So I wouldnt say its a waste. :toast:
