Patch 1.2.1 has made it through our QA process and is currently scheduled to go live on April 13 at 12 noon PST, 19:00 GMT. The full list of patch notes has been posted here in our forum, including some further details on balance changes.
As alluded to earlier, the PC version of the Call of Duty: World at War DLC has been released, for free (aka we’ll probably see some powered-by-Intel war machines), alongside patch 1.4:
Through a partnership with Intel, we are pleased to announce that the Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 is now available on the PC platform, completely free of charge!
Nightfire, Station, Knee Deep, and VerrÃ¼ckt are the 3 Multiplayer maps and Nazi Zombie level (respectively) that are included in this Map Pack. For more information about the DLC, click here.
The important thing to note is that PC Patch 1.4 is the actual package that includes Map Pack 1. For more information on what Patch 1.4 addresses with the game, visit the PC sub-forums on CallOfDuty.com. Patch1.4 will update installations of Patch 1.2 or greater.

One of the few things that excites me anymore in vehicle design anymore is when people take something old, like a dirt bike, and update it for today. Maybe only he who is without sin can afford the first $30k Toyota Prius, but surely even someone like me can afford the $10k for Zero Motorcycle’s Zero S Motorcycle.
It is basically their cheaper Zero Motorcycle dirtbike design upgraded to be street-legal and still has their goofy proprietary battery pack and clutchless design. Theoretically that should at least be upgradable in the future as new batteries come out which enable you to get more miles out of it.
Video of the Zero S after the break and you can order one today and get it delivered via UPS in May.
