We’ve got some new screenshots and info for Zombie Apocalypse 2, the follow up game to the popular first entry which will be available soon on the Xbox Live Marketplace. (Examiner)

In relatively dumb news, it looks like Dead Island, the video game with more hype than a Tyson fight in the 90’s, is getting made into a book. That’s right, one of those things with paper that you read. (Kotaku)

It looks like the wait for season two of The Walking Dead will get a little bit shorter. They’re going to make some webisodes to tide over the fans until the October premiere. (Bloody Disgusting)

Gale Anne Hurd recently gave an interview about filming during season two of The Walking Dead, but nothing was mentioned of Frank Darabont. (Buy Zombie)

Speaking of Darabont, it looks like it didn’t take long for him to be replaced as showrunner. Glen Mazzaara, who penned a season one episode and is one of the remaining writers that stuck around for season two, will be taking the throne as the man who keep the show going. Good luck sir! (Deadline)
