The Dead Must Die – Episode 1

6 May

“The Dead Must Die” is a new comedy/horror web series set after the inevitable ‘Zombie Apocalypse’, launching today as an Official DailyMotion web series.

There are 7 zombie fueled episodes, which will be appearing once a week for the next 7 weeks.

It follows two video game geeks, Steve (Stephen Russell) and other Steve (Jonny Helm) as they navigate through the wild terrain of their long awaited (and often discussed) zombie apocalypse.

Unfortunately, neither of them is really prepared for the reality of the situation…

Through blizzards, anti-zombie hate mobs, sand-eating, creepy nameless ninja chicks, crossbows, and moms, our heroes shall venture forth into this new world, where there is only one thing they can be certain of: that the dead must die!

From its beginnings as an in-character Twitter account dealing with the zombie apocalypse, The Dead Must Die has developed into a full grown monster series with the aid of its award winning creator Matthew Snyman and Digital Media Producer Alex Barkaloff (Lionsgate) and of course the lovely folks at DailyMotion.

Each episode has original art designed by a group of select illustrators from around the world, and will be available for download each week.

You can find out more at The Dead Must Die’s tumblr blog or follow them on Twitter.

Dead Rising Mobile

12 Oct

What happens when you squeeze an innovative (if flawed) Xbox game onto a mobile device, remove everything that made it innovative and have to put up with terrible controls? Dead Rising Mobile of course!

Dead Rising mobile will have no psycho fights, no escort missions, none of the improvements from Dead Rising 2 like combining weapons and from the looks of things no picture taking or story. So, eh, what’s the point?

Well, Capcom have added Twitter and Facebook :|

If you die, you can send a code out to Twitter and Facebook and if your friends find you they can bring you back to life with no penalty. Nothing more fun than waiting half an hour to play a game again.

As you can tell, I think this looks terrible and will be absolutely no fun, however there’s still time for things to change before it’s Q4 release, so I’ll not completely condemn it.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going back to play Dead Rising 2.

Win: Night of the Living Trekkies

Win: Night of the Living Trekkies

We’re a bit behind with covering this Star Trek meets zombies book from Quirk Books but needless to say we’ll have a full review of it coming soon.

For those of you who don’t know already

This sci-fi/zombie/comedy/adventure follows a group of rag-tag Trekkies getting together for the fifth annual GulfCon (billed as the “largest Starfleet Convention in the western Gulf Coast region”).

Our heroes are dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers-but soon find themselves defending their hotel and convention center against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Suddenly, all of their useless knowledge about particle physics and old Star Trek episodes has genuine real-world applications! And while hotel employees and regular civilians are dying left and right, our Trekkies summon strength and courage by emulating their favorite starship-voyaging characters.

Packed with hundreds of gags referencing Star Trek, Star Wars, comic books, and fan conventions, Night of the Living Trekkies reads like the strange lovechild of Galaxy Quest and Dawn of the Dead. Journey to the final frontier of zombie science-fiction satire!

and you can also check out the trailer here.

For a chance to win Night of the Living Trekkies just tell us:
Who would win in a fight, zombie Kirk or zombie Picard and why?

Winner will be chosen Monday 11th, standard terms and conditions we made up and amend as we want apply.

Don’t forget to check out the official page or to like the book on Facebook.
