Half-Buried

11Sep07

The newest Resident Evil flick will be set in post-zombie Las Vegas. From an IGN interview with writer Paul W. S. Anderson:

So that’s where the movie takes place, primarily in the deserts of Nevada and around Las Vegas. But of course, it’s a Las Vegas that has kind of fallen now, because what’s happened is, with no one to take care of it, the desert has come back in and half-buried Vegas. So… we built all these casinos which are sort of buried in the sand.

So what would happen if our economy collapsed, due perhaps to an over reliance on one industry, and the city was abandoned? Are we in for a sandy future? Is this really a viable long-term location for a city of 2 million? There are of course some very old, continuously inhabited desert cities out there, and some newer ones to guide us. So why are we here? It’s not just the weak state government and ambiguous nearby borders is it?
