Simply reading about Division 9, Irrational Games’ zombie FPS/strategy game that never was, makes me want to weep for what could have been. Base-building, strategic elements and shooting zombies in the face from the team that brought the world the fantastic BioShock? Seriously, I’m crying that this was never made. There’s a great-looking trailer too, but the embeds don’t seem to be working. You can see it at the link, though. (Game Informer)

If you are in Wilmington, North Carolina and want to be a zombie in a commercial, your chance has arrived. (StarNews Online)

Zombies in love

I’m proud to say that my hometown of Denver, Colorado is quite a zombie town. We just had our fourth annual zombie walk (more than 4,000 attendees, if reports are to be believed) and, the very same day, there was a zombies’ engagement party.

What? Zombies need love, too.

Well, it turned out the zombie engagement party was actually an art show, but since it was largely horror and zombie themed art, it was still awesome. And I got some fine photos of both the party and the zombie walk. You can see some of the best of them, including a video slideshow of the zombie walk, after the break.
