Ties & Tragedy: Half-Life’s Zombies

Preparing for a much-needed Windows reinstall, I'm currently unearthing all manner of old pieces from my freelance past. Many are... well, you know how it can feel to read something you wrote many moons ago. For the sake of all humankind, most of these documents must never see the light of day again. This heartfelt paean to the original Half-Life's zombies (originally published in PC…

Spread The Disease: Zombilution Demo

I've had this idea for a game! It's a game where there's zombies! Indeed, as vampires saturate the movie and book world, the zombies take over gaming. In fact, this zombie invasion is taking on a worryingly appropriate pattern, each undead game spawning dozens more. It can only be a few years before there are only a tiny group of non-zombie games, battling to survive…

The Zombie MegaMix

A man called Billy emails us with a link to a video. He includes the word 'zombie' in not just the email, but even its subject line. The cheek of the man. The gall. Doesn't he know we're better than that? Doesn't he know we're so much better than this ubiquitous zombie fad? Doesn't he- OH HE TOTALLY TOOK ITS HEAD OFF OH GOD NOW…

So Soon? Borderlands DLC Incoming

There's still a week until the thing goes on sale, but seems Gearbox/2K are confident enough in their impending shooty-bang-bang/looty-grab-grab game that they've already confirmed its first DLC. You'll never guess what it's about. I mean, it's not like it could be zombies - that undead horse has already had a brutal flogging everywhere else. It's zombies.

Killing Floor Is Alive

Zombies zombies zombies. Zombies zombies zombies. Zombies. This one could go huge, I suspect. It's the next game from the makers of the evergreen Red Orchestra, and it's stealing a little bit of long-term supporters Valve's thunder by being a co-op zombie shooter. Cheeky! Left 4 Dead 1.5 it ain't though, thanks to more arena-like playing areas, abilities beyond simple shooting and healing, and persistent…

Dead Rising 2: Moose Of The Dead

Given the entire internet is busy spaffing about this today, we might as well join the fray - if only cos it's always funny when someone accuses us of trying to be like Kotaku because we've posted something pop. While Capcom's first tongue-in-cheek free-roaming zombie-smasher was strictly for the Xbox Three-Hundred-And-Sixty Machine, the 2010-due sequel will also arrive on our glorious personal computer boxes. Joy!…

It’s The Zombie Apocalypse. Bring Friends.

Valve are being rather bold about their advertising spend for Left 4 Dead. $10 million, we're told, quite a lot. Don't they know that a gentleman doesn't know how much is in his advertising budget? Anyhow, a lump of this money is being spent on TV spots, which are of course already on the internets. Of course posting adverts is just what they want us…

Call of Duty: World At War: Hands On And Chat-talk

This is turning into a link-to-stuff-we've done day, I know. Apologies, but the last minute organisation (i.e. All the organisation) for this evening's Thinkosium is devouring the day. Still - here's the freshly published piece I wrote for Eurogamer where I interviewed Producer Noah Heller and wrote a little about my impressions. Since I wrote it, the Zombie game mode has been confirmed with footage…

The Zombie Invasion

How many zombies does it take to make a meme? How many zombies is too many zombies? And why is every game suddenly obsessed with them? Well, even more so than usual. It certainly seems like the en vogue way to drum up renewed interest in a game right now - no less than three usually non-zombie-centric titles have made the headlines in the last…

Zafehouse 1.5: DIY Under Extreme Conditions

Logan Booker of Kotaku Australia isn't just a pretty face (I'm presuming he's a pretty face, as most games journalists are hotties. No, really). He's made a game in one (count it!) week, and has lobbed up a second version. Zafehouse is - to quote Sean Garland quoting the RPS chatroom - "like dead rising, but with next-gen graphics". This is an example of irony.…

Om-nom-Nombz!

There's been a lot of indie zombie games recently - in fact, there's at least another one I'm considering whether I should give a little shot to the head or not. But this isn't about that - this is about Nombz is a neat little third-person action shooter, who released V1.1 of their demo recently. It involves shooting! Zombies! In the head!

RPS Interview: Valve’s Chet Faliszek

Meeting at a Left 4 Dead preview event in a goth club in Munich, your RPS correspondent sat down with Valve's Chet “The Other Half Of Old Man Murray” Faliszek to discuss the games he has been working on (Episode One and Two, Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead) and the state of Valve's gaming world generally. Both men had been awake since 5am…

Dead Island

The plot of Techland's recently announced Dead Island promises a fun time: a tropical tourist resort turns into a zombie apocalypse. You, as a tourist on the package holiday to hell, must put things right and bash the horrors. It's cocktails and crowbars on the beach as you battle with decomposing partygoers. Yum. Techland promise open-ended first-person survival shootiness in a large island environment. Using…

Ska zombies

Cheerful ska helps anything, and the more sax the better. Take this mod, Gateways, which seemed to be fairly unremarkable "let's just throw as many Combine in as possible!" Half-Life 2 fan-faffery. Until, that is, I was being chased around giant cubes of light suspended in the sky by all the antlions in the world, to the sound of very cheerful, very saxy ska-lite. It's…
