If you’re a PC gamer who “preloaded” Left 4 Dead 2 via Steam, you’ll be able to play at 12 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, wherever you live — that’s like three hours early for West Coasters! Xbox 360 dudes, you still have to stand in line outside a GameStop until the witching hour tonight to play. (Kotaku)

Looks like you’ll be able to pick up Zombieland on DVD come February 2, 2010. (Bloody Disgusting)

Based on a job listing online, it appears that space-zombie shooter Dead Space 2 will have multiplayer. (Kotaku)

Kill the undead on your iPhone with Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies, supposing you have $9.99 to waste. (Kotaku)

Portland, Oregon residents should get out of the house and go enjoy the wonder of Zompire: The Undead Film Festival this weekend. Cemetery Man, Day of the Dead and other great films are on the bill and you can get the full lineup at the festival web site. (Dread Central & everyone I know in Portland — you know who you are!)

If you didn’t already know, the Zombie Reporting Center sent out a helpful reminder that Walking Dead Compendium One is out and available for purchase. Robert Kirkman’s ongoing graphic novel of life after the zombie apocalypse is fantastic, and this collects the first 48 issues into a massive 1,088 page volume. (Zombie Reporting Center)

Los Angeles goes zombie mad as alt-weekly paper LA Weekly gives us a giant cover story on the zombie zeitgeist, a brief history of the zombie in film, a slide show from the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors con and a memoir of one man’s experience with zombies. Wow, zombie blowout! (LA Weekly)

Finally, on a personal note, my post earlier about the June Zombie Movie Marathon was the 100th post for the blog! Not bad for just over three months, eh? Looking forward to hundreds more with you fine people.
