OMG NEWS! It’s been a huge news weekend and with the E3 show going on there’s a lot to cover, so I’m going to split things up into a few groups at times. Also all videos, as always, are after the break, just so I don’t have to keep typing it.

There was a ton of good news that came out of the E3 show just these last couple of days.

The Walking Dead has also been tearing up the internet as season two moves into production.

There wasn’t a shortage of movie news this weekend either.

And to wrap things up with a little humor, that awesome CDC article about zombie preparedness (which we reported day one, because Cory is just that awesome) has become so popular that it actually crashed the CDC blog last week. (Your Daily News Fix)
