Bless you, Jonathan Coulton, you are a true national treasure. This has been around the intertubes for a while, but I have to post it anyway as it is awesome and should be viewed repeatedly. In case your wondering Jonathan Coulton is a singer/songwriter who releases his songs via the Creative Commons which allows creative people to make great videos like this.
You play as hero Barry Steakfries, and you’re meant to use time portals to stop the evil zombie scheme of Professor Brains, with lots of guns.
You know some people might argue that there are too many zombie games out these day, that maybe we should try something else, and that maybe we’ve had enough. I would argue that those people should shut their big old pie holes before I shuts it for ’em. Zombie games are never not awesome! Learn to love them or… The terrorists win.strong>
The game will be $5, and will be out February 25th. Come on!!! It’s $5 and your playing a guy named Barry Steakfries for crying out loud, You get to shoot zombie dinasaurs! That’s good stuff there.
Really I would not call her a zombie, not really rotting enough. I would say she’s more of a horrible ghoul. Kinda cute though so we’ll forgive her, however, that kid at the end is a troll. That kid should be under a bridge eating billy goats. Yikes.
Can’t wait for this movie to come out! I saw this one a while back and was very impressed. It was like watching a movie leangth version of “Tales From the Crypt” only this was good. (Shudder….. “Bordello of Blood”…wow that sucked.) If you havn’t seen this movie it is definitely worth your time. I will be picking up a copy on the 30th.
From Dread Central:
Dominic Monaghan and Larry Fessenden play professional grave-robbing team Arthur & Willie, who make their living stealing corpses in 18th Century Ireland. The duo start off working for peanuts under a nefarious doctor (played by Angus Scrimm in all his scowling glory) but soon catch on to the huge money-making opportunities behind corpse snatching. Arthur recounts these events from a prison cell to a priest (a very offbeat Ron Perlman) on the eve of his beheading, so the story largely unfolds through a series of flashback vignettes as he and Willie run afoul of rival grave-robbers, vampires, zombies, and several other oddities that would be criminal to spoil.
I will be picking up a copy on the 30th when it’s released Stateside.
I’ve seen zombie haiku books come out and of course I blatantly stole these from Fear.net for your own amusement. I should start a page with my own zombie haiku just for fun. (I bet those sparkly vampires don’t get this level of poetry, there just going to have to be satisfied with desperate fan slash fiction… gross)
These were some of the better ones in my opinion.
