ZOMBIES: Fact, fiction, or theoretical possibility? PART 5

 

 Rule 3 – “Always carry a minimum of 2 reliable, lethal weapons.” Welcome to this, the last in our five part look into all things zombie. Last week we looked at the end of civilization. In little over 38 days after initial infection, most of the human race would be some form of zombie, and the world we know would be gone. But what if you were one of the lucky ones? What if you survived, what would you do then? Well a number of people have given this a lot of thought. Over the past decade, dozens of books, manuals, videos, and survival kits have been created to deal with this possibility.  Rule 10 – “Only pull the trigger […]

 “I’d rather die while I’m living than live while I’m dead. ”  – Jimmy Buffett. It’s Wednesday and that means zombies. Last week we had a brief look at some of the best/worst zombie films and video-games in the 21st century. Today we shall carry on down the undead rabbit hole. “What’s with the zombie craze?

VAMPIRE THE MASQUERADE: BLOODLINES

 

    “Police don’t have any suspects at this time, but they’re pretty sure that it was you.” -TV set. Damned security guard just shot me! Five bullets in the chest! Luckily for me and unluckily for him, a vampire cannot be felled by a few rounds fired from a ‘cap gun’. He seems to be backing away now. I think he has realised his mistake. Shame he is standing in front of the only exit. I suppose I shall have to deal with him… permanently. A myriad of choices present themselves to me. I could rush him, and tear him apart with claw, or axe, or any number of remorseless weapons; though that might be a bit excessive. I could […]

ZOMBIES: Fact, fiction, or theoretical possibility? PART 1

 

 “[I was taken] to the house, whose inhabitants are deprived of light; to the place where dust is their sustenance, their food clay. They are clothed, like a bird, with feathered raiment.” – Gilgamesh. I had an idea for a nice little article about the undead. But, little did I know, that the sweet and innocent article would quickly turn into a rambling monster of reborn pain and re-purposed flesh. ZOMBIES! Love them or hate them; they are part of our culture; and our Wednesdays. But how long have they been in our culture; and what is our fascination with them? Follow me as we try and get some answers to “ZOMBIES: Fact, fiction, or theoretical possibility? PART 1” “So […]

DOOM: 5 Weapons of Divine War.

 

     “Right, you’re the control, and if that fails, I’m the damage.” – Jack Campbell. Those were words were first heard at the beginning of DOOM 3, and I immediately took them to heart. Now I – once again – decided to write a short article. But, as YOU know, my plans never work out. So instead of the 200 word “happy weapons of Doom” article I was planning, I have instead found myself doing a short/over the top write up, regarding my 5 favourite weapons of DOOM!                          1: Double Barrel Shotgun. NOW here’s a classic peace/piece maker. Although she was not introduced until DOOM 2, she became the staple weapon for most DOOM fans. After she wasn’t included […]

AMONG THE SLEEP

 

 Today, we are going to discuss an upcoming title. A title that, if you are like me, already has you salivating like a lion at an ‘all you can eat’ pygmy buffet. And if the teaser trailers are anything to go by, then this is going to be one of the scariest, heart stopping, mind blowing, trouser wetting and controversial video-game titles of all time. How so? Well, let’s break this sandwich down. [youtube id=”YWDQN_X5b-M” width=”450″ height=”260″] THE GAME: Proper Scary: Over the past few years we have been given a number of good scares by the games industry.
