2008 Is Now Officially “The Year of the Zombie”

As most Gamers Pub listeners know I am an avid Zombie fan, Movies, Books, it doesn’t matter. It also is no secret that I have mad love for Valves upcoming FPS Left 4 Dead, as I have been constantly talking about it over at The Gamers Pub for the past year. It seems that as of late other developers have been taking a lovely relationships with our undead nightmares, as Zombies have seemed to be popping up everywhere. First we have had the dead be reanimated in Space with EA’s awesome new title Dead Space, then as I walk through the streets of Saints Row 2 we can find in arcade cabinets, or the consoles in your living quarters a Zombie mini-game of survival. Not being the only open world game to have Zombies in it the awesome Rockstar folks are giving GTA owners a Zombie patch with a zombie infestation that is to set up for multi-player mode.  It starts out when a virus is introduced into the game world and turns the players into zombies and the virus is contracted when a player kills someone who is infected with the virus.  The social club also allows registered users to see if they have been infected as well as seeing the spread of the disease on U.S. and world maps. Another surprise out of Left field is that the Trearch boys over at Activision are set to release a special mode in COD: World at War that will feature a “zombie mode” that’s unlocked once you complete the game. It’s a four-player co-op mode pitting you against endless waves of Nazi undead, and last but not least we have Left 4 Dead a game all about surviving a Zombie holocaust. SO as I said in the beginning 2008 is “Truly” The year of the Zombie. What do you think? And with Resident Evil 5 in the beginning of 2009 will Zombies be the new Nazis?

Much Love

    I think everyone is trying to buy into the zombie hype that is coming with left 4 dead. Left 4 dead will be the only zombie multiplayer game to play and cod world at war is just a joke.
