Yakuza: Of The End is a zombie game we’ve covered in the past. However it’s just been brought to my attention that in the game, there are several special types of zombie that blatantly rip off the villains gallery in Left 4 Dead. Check out the images and judge for yourself. (Kotaku)

In what is the weirdest science news I’ve seen in a long time, a fungus is slowly turning rain forest ants into mindless zombies, causing them to then carry the disease back to their nests or simply go walk off a tree. (Daily Mail)

I originally passed on this news when the game still needed some polish, but after a little bit of what I can assume was code revision, Streetview Zombie Apocalypse looks pretty good now. The game uses Google Maps to put you in your favorite area and then puts a bunch of zombies around you that you must run from. (GamePro)

It might be a Constantine rip off, but Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, based around the Italian comic book, looks pretty awesome. We’ve got some production stills that show off a rather broody Brandon Routh. (Bloody Disgusting)

AMC is airing a Walking Dead marathon March 4 (this Friday) starting at 8:00 Eastern, and each episode is going to be loaded with behind the scenes commentary and extras from the cast and crew. It’s a good chance to re-watch an epic series and maybe find a few things you missed the first time around. (Fangoria)

Indie film Zombie Undead has already received a distribution deal, and now gets to show at the prestigious Fantasporto film festival in Portugal. (BBC)

The Walking Dead has six nominations at this year’s Saturn Awards, and I’d be more excited if it weren’t for the fact that Letters to Juliet and True Grit were also nominated. I don’t mean to be a complete nerd, but what the hell happened to my science fiction, horror, and fantasy awards? (About)

Richard Wolstencroft speaks up about his regrets over the debacle in which his home was raided and he was fined following the airing of LA Zombie. (AVN)

Dread Central is giving away free copies of The Walking Dead on Blu-Ray or DVD. You have to give them your address so be forewarned. (Dread Central)

At a rather boring presentation on RSA security and information technology principles, research director Josh Corman hired a bunch of zombies to interrupt his presentation and attack in what I feel was an effort to keep people awake. Check out the video after the break. (Tripwire)

Richard Wolstencroft, the Australian man who DARED to show a private screening of the banned Bruce LaBruce film LA Zombie has finally settled with the local government and was ordered to pay $750 to the Royal Children’s Hospital. I’m torn because on one hand a children’s hospital received a charitable donation and on the other hand a dude had his home invaded for showing a movie. (Sydney Morning Herald)

Here’s a new TV spot for The Walking Dead on DVD. Check it out after the break. (Dread Central)

Well, the rumors are true! Telltale games IS developing a new zombie survival game based around The Walking Dead. No word yet as to whether or not the actors from the television series will voice the roles, or how it will compete with the upcoming Dead Island in terms of features. (Digital Spy)

Valve is set to release a new DLC add-on for Left 4 Dead 2 called Cold Stream, which will include all the previous maps from Left 4 Dead as well as the new content which is based upon user mods to the game. Sorry Xbox fans, looks like this one might be PC only. (Gamefocus)

We’ve also got a nice teaser trailer for the Mexican zombie film Los Infectados (The Infected… in case you were wondering) and it looks pretty good. It’s in post production, so expect details in the near future. (Quiet Earth)

Here is a cool photo gallery from Saint Motel’s Third Annual Zombie Prom. I’ll refrain from making a Teenage Wasteland joke. (Guest of a Guest)
