Have no fear, they’re still pumping out the zombie games

Not that there was any concern about the matter in the first place, but rest assured, for those who love zombie video games, your bases are still covered.

Two recent, fairly high profile titles were recently announced, both featuring zombies. First there’s Dead Island Riptide, the sequel to last year’s quite popular sandbox title on a tropical island that also featured you know what.

The teaser trailer for the first game turned lots of heads, due to its mix of slo-motion, gut wrenching music, and heinous violence that was intended to tug at the heart strings of all parents. Though quite a few were fairly turned off, myself included; I just found the whole thing to be super manipulative and lost respect for anyone who was so easily suckered. But, if it ain’t broke, right?

By the way, anyone believing that the sequel will finally match the emotional highs of the trailer is officially an idiot. Just saying. Anyhow, and moving on, here we have the first look at the zombie that will take part in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Many have been less than impressed by the main portion of the sequel, but they’ll still get the game anyway because of this…

Oh, like I said a few days ago, the demo for Resident Evil 6 is finally out. A game that used to be all about the zombies. But not it’s all about lizard men, giant mutants, and lots of tentacles. Oh Japan.
