In Urban Dead, when you enter locations you can search them. Occasionally you'll find things... but not always. Oddly, when in a mall, you don't always find anything at all. It's a freaking mall! Even if everything has been raided, there's gotta be some old magazines or a random shirt (both of which are collectable in the game) just sitting around.
The futility of it, sometimes, was just overwelming.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
