    It's probably Umbrella Corporation's east Asia headquarters, and therefore likely does have escape pods. If there's a security breach, nuclear decontamination.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I got baked and played a lot of RE4. Then aparently overdid it a bit. But that is a cool looking building.

    I don't smoke but I drink some... getting near dinner time so it might be time. I will be playing either Madden or Black. I love turning the surround sound up and hearing the deafening gun shots and explosions.

    Well that's pretty ****in' gorgeous. I love it. It looks integrated with it's surroundings as though it were all planned that way (which it probably was). The North Korean building, while attractive to me, looks like an after thought.

    Any info on this? I haven't seen anything new on this subject since the renovations.

    I don't like it.

    It looks like a structure you'd find in Las Vegas ... not easy on the eye IMO

    Functionality, political background, economics & cost aside yes it's without a doubt hysterically cool. It looks like something a Pharaoh would build for himself if he had access to modern engineering. Which seems really apt for North Korea.

    The exterior is unique and eye catching I need to know a lot more about the building than just that.

    The North Koreans are notorious for their "staged" attractions especially along the border. Considering all the people starving and freezing I would think investing in dwellings and the building of such dwellings providing jobs and revenue to their hungry citizens would be money better spent.

    I would have to research the building ...yet unless functional and providing housing, greenhouse farming or business space to their citizens the building is just grandstanding the greedy dictator.
