$20 Game of the Week: State of Decay (Xbox 360, PC)

stateofdecay

I really hate zombies. I know I said this before, but I really, REALLY, fucking hate zombies. I hate that they’re being rammed down my throat and shoehorned into every comic, tv show, video game, or movie that I see. However, I can appreciate a game that does something different or unique with Zombies. Which is why Undead Lab’s Cryengine-powered State of Decay is this week’s $20GOTW.

Maximum Letdown: Dead Island (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

deadislandLet me make this clear. I don’t hate this game. It’s not even all that bad. My disappointment in this game comes from two main sources. First of all, I hate zombies. How many more times do I have to see them in every single form of media? Now I like Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead as much as the next man, and I get a kick out of Plants vs Zombies. Lately however, every other game, movie, book, novel, and TV show has a tendency to ram the undead down our throats. If it ain’t about banding together to kill the undead hordes and escape, it’s about survival and scavenging supplies. If it ain’t about survival, it’s about how the living are even more dangerous than the undead. Many times it’s all three. Now I can appreciate when a medium of entertainment can do something different with the medium, i.e Zombies mode in Black Ops or Undead Nightmare in Red Dead Redemption. I kinda hoped Dead Island would do the same. Sadly, besides a few nifty ideas here and there, this game does little.

The second reason? See for yourself after the jump

Plants Vs Zombies Launches On Android

PopCap games has finally brought their very popular backyard defense game Plants Vs Zombies to Android devices! Its available via the Amazon Appstore exclusively, so you won’t find it on Android Market. Its well worth downloading the Amazon Appstore right now because PvZ is free today only. Yes, May 31, 2011. If it is any other day, you’ll pay $2.99. Be aware the size of the game means you have to download over wifi, but you can still buy the game now and download later if you’re mobile. You can even queue it from the website if you don’t have your phone or tab handy right now.

$2.99 is still a good price for a great game (and a bargain compared to what you pay on other platforms), but its worth downloading Plants Vs Zombies now while its still free.

Powet Alphabet: Z is for Zombrex

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

In most cases of zombie media, once youíre bitten by a zombie (either of the viral type or otherwise), youíre pretty much screwed. Zombie plagues break out because generally, there are no vaccines or cures once youíre infected, and infection sets on rather quickly and zombification causes carriers to spread the plague like wildfire. Usually, if you donít die immediately due to sever wounds, youíre left to degenerate over a period of time until the infection finally kills you and you become the walking dead, if another person doesnít do you a mercy and take you down before you turn.

The introduction of Zombrex in the Dead Rising series changed that.
