Monster Earthquake/Tsunami Rattles Japan

Say a little prayer today to whatever god you like for the people of Japan. They suffered through the worst earthquake in the country's history today- an 8.8 -only to be hit with a massive tsunami that washed away an as yet unknown amount of people and structures.

At this point there isn't even an estimate as to loss of life- but to give you an idea, some 250 bodies were just found in one of the coastal areas first hit by the wave. And to make matters worse, there are fires at several refineries and nuclear plants.

We're not going to cover this much here- it's a gaming blog after all -but here are some links if you'd like to keep up on things or if you need to check on anyone:
