Deadlines: News roundup 6/25/09

The biggest news of the day, by far, is that Michael Jackson is dead. How is that zombie news? Ever heard of a little thing called “Thriller”? It’s probably behind only Night of the Living Dead and maybe Dawn of the Dead in terms of popularizing zombies. TMZ broke the news earlier today, but it’s pretty much everywhere. (TMZ)

PC gamers get official support for custom campaigns in Left 4 Dead with an update today. Lucky bastards. (Kotaku)

And that’s it, because today is the slowest zombie news days ever. But to salve the pain, there’s a silly Resident Evil claymation clip embedded after the breka (thanks to Kotaku for the find).

    @ Biddie – Can’t say Zombie Diaries is epic, but it is impressive in some ways. Your enjoyment is going to depend on your tolerance for the first-person/shaky/faux documentary camera work and oddball way the story is told. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did, but it was worth seeing for sure.
