Zombies. Everybody loves them.
Zombies are one of gaming’s favourite enemies. More often than not, they just shuffle around, waiting for us players to kindly blow them away. Zombies are a safe choice of enemy when developing a game, as most people won’t think twice about mowing down a walking corpse.
Zombie games are really popular with players, and are seemingly everywhere nowadays. Players have many apocalypses to choose from, such as Resident Evil, Dead Rising, ZombiU, House of the Dead, Left 4 Dead, etc.
Titles usually pit players against hordes of undead (obviously), testing them to survive and escape the apocalypse.
Do you have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse?

It’s never an easy task for a different developer to bring out a sequel to a game that received high praise when it was originally released.
Especially when the wait has been so long.
The Darkness was released way back in 2007, yet somehow Digital Extreme have managed to craft The Darkness II into something not quite the same, but still uniquely from its world.
2K Australia invited OXCGN down to the Flinders on Flinder St., just off Sydney’s infamous Oxford Street, where they had set up 4 consoles for everyone to test out the newly unveiled Vendetta Campaign Mode.

OXCGN’s Red Dead Redemption:

Best Undead Outing in Years?

A prevalent fixation in modern pop-culture is that of zombies.
Zombies. The Undead. The Walking Dead. The Living Dead. Whatever you want to call them, they’ve always been a common feature of video games.
More recently, however, they have become a hackneyed icon.
From the past few years, let’s name a few games that primarily focused on the undead: Dead Rising 1 and 2, Resident Evil 5, Silent Hill Homecoming, Nation Red, Burn Zombie Burn, Dead Space, and Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.
Death walks among us . . .
