Outpost: Deuce and the Zombies

7 Dec

 

Deuce’s adventure and battle against zombies continues in “Outpost,” sequel to Ann Aguirre’s phenomenal novel “Enclave” from the Razorland Trilogy. In “enclave,” readers are introduced in a post-apocalyptic world where humans live underground in order to protect themselves from the attack of hungry zombies. On the other hand, “Outpost” is set in an abode above the ground named “salvation.”

 

Together with her friends Fade, Stalker, and Tegan, Deuce now lives in the salvation where Religion plays a very important role in the lives of the people. Stratification between the two genders is imposed in the settlement where men and women are required to wear clothes appropriate for their gender. Deuce finds herself hard to fit-in since she prefers to wear warrior clothes and desires to join the army protecting the settlement from the zombies.

 

Since Fade keeps himself distant from Deuce, she decidesto join the summer patrol in order to make herself busy. The patrol protects the people working in the field from any zombie attack. As the raid of zombies becomes more frequent, Deuce’s romance between Fade and Stalker becomes more complicated.

 

Feeling comfortable with her new family, Deuce promised to do whatever it takes in order to save and protect the settlement from the freaks (as what they call the zombies) as they evolve into smarter, fiercer, stronger, and more human-like. In the end, despite the gender oppression she suffered from the rules in the settlement, Deuce used all her best skills in order to protect her friends and the new people she learned to love.

This Canadian film directed by Casey Walker is another Zombie movie of 2012 that will surely entertain and scare a lot of zombie-fans around the world. The story starts when Steve (played by Kristopher Turner) goes to a cabin in the middle of a forest with his soon to be bride Tina (played by Crystal Lowe) together with their best man and maid of honour.

 

The thrill starts when Kristopher is bitten by a mosquito carrying a virus that turns him into a zombie. Steve starts to develop an appetite related to zombies and drools whenever he hears the word “brains.” On the other hand, being the control freak that she is, Tina ignored her fiance’s condition and tries to continue their lives despite Steve’s zombie tendencies. One scene shows that she staples Steve’s ears when it fell off. The twist in the story comes when the zombie hunters begin to track down Steve in order to eradicate the population of zombies in the world.

The film also stars Stephen McHattie and Emillie Ullerup as the zombie hunters, Shawn Roberts, Kristen Hager, George Buza, Robert Maillet, Neil Whitely, and others adding more humour to the film.

 

The film is written by Trevor Martin and Cristopher Bond. A Little Bit Zombie is produced by John Griffith, Tyman Stewart, Casey Walker, and David Watson. A Little Bit Zombie is one of those romantic-horror-comedy films that will surely bring laughter and fear to the viewers.

Best Zombie Video Games of 2012

7 Dec

 

There are plenty of zombie video games released in 2012 but only a few of them are worth playing. If you’re looking for a good zombie game, then this article may be able to help you. Here you will find the best two zombie video games released in 2012 that are worth your time and money.

 

DayZ

DayZ is a mod for the popular shooter game ARMA 2. You will need to purchase ARMA 2 in order to play the DayZ mod. DayZ is a survival game where you search an open world for weapons and ammunitions in order to survive a zombie pandemic. Your character can also get sick, hungry, and thirsty, so you will need to look for medicine and food as well. DayZ is an online game so you will also need to watch out for other players who may try to kill you to steal your weapons and food. DayZ was released on November 21, 2012.

 

The War Z

The War Z is similar to DayZ because it also requires you to scavenge the wilderness and cities for food and weapons. Like DayZ, you will need to watch out for zombies and other players who are trying to kill you. Unlike DayZ however, you don’t have to make a new character when you die in The War Z. If you die in The War Z, you lose all the items that you are carrying but you don’t lose your character. When your character dies, you will need to wait for a countdown timer to expire before you can play with your character again. Your character can also learn skills that will help him survive in the game.

The Walking Dead

7 Dec

Most of today’s zombie survival games focus on arming yourself with guns and shooting zombies in order to survive. If you’re looking for a different zombie survival game with a good story and some roleplaying elements, then The Walking Dead video game might be the one for you.

 

About the Game

The Walking Dead is a point-and-click game with some roleplaying elements thrown in. It is developed by Telltale Games, the same developer who made the popular adventure games such as Monkey Island and Sam & Max. The Walking Dead consists of 5 episodes in all. The fifth episode, “No Time Left” was released on November 20, 2012. This game is currently available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft Windows (PC), and Mac OS X.

 

Gameplay

This game is an adventure game that requires you to examine items and determine when and where you should use them. You will also need to interact with the game’s characters and make moral decisions that will have consequences with your relationship with them. You will need to use the environment and the items in your inventory in order to survive and move the story forward. Because of the zombies in the game, you often have limited time to figure out how to use your environment or items before the zombies get to you. There are also Quick Time events in the game’s action scenes that determine whether you survive or die. The Walking Dead is a nice change from the usual “point gun and shoot” zombie survival games in the market.

Day Of The Dead 2: Contagium – Review

Day Of The Dead 2: Contagium – Review

Day of the Dead 2: Contagium (2005) is an ‘official’ prequel to the 1985 George A. Romero Day of the Dead. I put the official in quotes back there because although it comes from Taurus Entertainment Company, who hold the rights to the original film, nobody from the 1985 classic was involved.
