A car full of party goers dressed as zombies were involved in a car crash in Portland, Oregon last Friday causing many who were first at the scene to believe their injuries were much worse than they were.
Portland Police said the car was swerving in the eastbound lanes of the freeway just east of the Lloyd District just after 9:30 p.m. when it rolled over and crashed onto it’s roof.
Sergeant Stewart said:
We’re glad that everyone is alive, despite being ‘undead’
Police are investigating as to whether the car possible contained more revellers who fled on foot after the crash.

Well worth a read (and normally $15 to buy) this online version is made better by commentary on every panel by publisher Ross Richie. Go check it out now.
Life Corp, a leader in the technology field, is working on ground breaking technology to makes people happy. The company’s CEO, Sir John Chris, argues this is coming at a time when people are angry and need a change. Ben Lau, a software engineer, has dedicated the last three years of his life on the Life Corp project trying to make a difference. Together with Raj, his fellow software engineer, and Liz, his project manager, they conduct their final experiment which would actually make an unhappy person happy.
The experiment takes an unexpected turn for the worse. Instead of the intended outcome, the test subject becomes a zombie! To resolve the crisis, Sir John Chris hires his friends to consult on the project. His friends only make things worse, and their experiment starts the zombie epidemic infecting the entire building. Ben, Raj and Liz, escape the initial outbreak, but realize they are the key to reversing the effects of the infection.
So they fight and at times crawl through the various departments of the Life Corp building, meeting the surprisingly good looking marketing department, the executive CEO staff, and some old friends, who are now brain dead. Along the way, Ben realizes how he really feels for his project manager and ex-girlfriend, Liz. In the end, Ben reverses the effect of the infection, gets the girl, and saves the office.
Apart from that spoiler ridden official synopsis this low budget zombie film looks like it might be able to raise a few chuckles for those of us stuck in office jobs… or perhaps offer a reflection into our own pitiful lives.
Plants vs Zombies creators, Popcap, have invited game journalists to save a date for a special event to be held in San Francisco on the 2nd of August. Could this be an announcement of Plants vs. Zombies 2?!
Probably not, as PopCap co-founder John Vechey has already confirmed that the sequel, while definitely happening, will not be out this year (unless he’s changed his mind of course). More likely it’ll be a concrete date on Plants Vs. Zombies on XBLA which has been conspicuous by it’s absence since it was first confirmed.
Of course it could be nothing at all to do with Plants Vs. Zombies and simply be an invitation using the characters, which would explain why Zombie Command’s invitation got lost in the mail :(
We’re a sucker for a good board game and apart from Zombies!!! and Twilight Creations’ stuff there aren’t many zombie board games. Zombie State is a viral game of global proportions for 2-5 players ages 13 and up.
Firebongo!’s handcrafted, plush, undead, snugglers are only the beginning of the ZOM plague. Bring the epidemic to your hometown. But be warned: ZOMs will steal your heart along with a few other choice body parts.
