You have options when it comes to zombie-slaying weapons. Loud guns may attract unwanted zombie attention. Baseballs bats can require several swats to work. Chainsaws need gas. A tactical ax, however, is portable and effective.ThinkGeek's Zombie Survival Kit features a stainless-steel SOG Tactical Tomahawk, suitable for close combat or hurling from a distance at the undead. Zombie crime scene tape helps you alert other survivors to danger zones.… Read more
Let's face it: Zombies have the worst oral hygiene. I mean, have you ever seen one floss?
Alas, kids run them a close second, especially around Halloween, when the candy piles up like zombies on a cheerleader pyramid.
To help thwart the totally made-up condition known as "Zombie Mouth," PopCap Games has teamed up with the American Dental Association for a seriously cool promotion: Halloween-night coupons for a free copy of Plants vs. Zombies (PC/Mac).
Plants vs. Zombies surprises its users with its gorgeous graphics and onscreen directions that help you get familiar with the app and focus on enjoying the entertainment. Its clean, simple, and easy-to-understand interface with its care for details will drag each gamer into the world of plants and zombies from the very beginning.
We liked how the game scenario makes you hungry for more levels. The great introduction for first-time players with the first levels of the game and the feelings of success are among the key incentives that will drive you to the next level. When you defeat the … Read more
To avoid permanently getting rid of plants, zombies, jewels, frogs, or worms, gaming company PopCap announced today that it has to lay off 50 employees at its headquarters.
The social and mobile gaming arm of Electronic Arts that's known for games like Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies said it had to reevaluate its costs in order to keep up with the digital gaming world.
Perhaps killing virtual zombies will tempt you to buy a new Sony Android handset. The company just announced that the game Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies is now available for download on its Xperia S and Xperia Ion smartphones.
As part of an exclusive deal with Activision, the $6.99 title will be listed in the Google Play store for 30 days only for these new Sony devices plus the older Xperia Play phone. The game features 50 levels of zombie-killing action and is a port of the popular console software.
According to Sony, users can play in single-player … Read more
There's an image floating around the Web that is both disturbing and humorous. It looks pretty much like a petrified zombie head with a gumball machine where the brains should be and a lone gumball clinging to the tongue.
This is not the sort of image you can forget once you've seen it. It's actually a sculpture created by artist Thomas Kuebler. "I grew up with an interest in monster movies, circus sideshows, and all things bizarre," Kuebler tells Crave. "My artwork often reflects that." … Read more
My preparations for the coming zombie apocalypse came down to one thing: a baseball bat. But this kit from OpticsPlanet makes me think I'm being terribly naive.
The Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research, and Operations) Zombie Kit is the mother of all undead survival kits.
For a whopping $24,000 you get oodles of tools, protective gear, cases, and weapons accessories. The kit is skimpy on weapons themselves (the company says ammo will run out during the war, so you only get two knives) but tries to make up for it with gunsmithing and laboratory equipment. … Read more
Without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Comic-Con was The Walking Dead Escape takeover of Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres.
Spanning across multiple levels of the stadium, the 45-minute obstacle course led us through a zombie-filled apocalyptic simulation where "survivors" must outrun the living dead or become infected themselves.
This event was no joke. We were told to stretch out before, wear gym clothes, and be sure to not leave anyone behind. Armed with our head- and chest-mounted GoPros, we documented the entire experience. Of course, not everyone could survive. So who made … Read more
The world is annoyed with Facebook, but I'm stressed out over zombies:
Last week, Facebook automaticly changed the email address displayed in profiles to be the Facebook email that no one uses. Well the drama doesn't end there. Some smartphones that sync contacts with Facebook have auto-updated address book info with Facebook emails. Do yourself (and your friends) a favor and make sure the right email is listed in your profile. If you think you're missing emails because of this change-up, click on Messages in the left-hand column, then click on Other. That's where Facebook hides … Read more
Getting your app discovered is one challenge, but how about sustaining user interest?
If your smartphone is like mine, you have a lot of apps that were downloaded on a whim or a recommendation sitting in the apps folder or on the home page, completely untouched. Or perhaps you have a game, productivity, or entertainment app that you obsessively used for a few days only to burn out on it.It's the phenomenon of the "zombie app," which sits unused on a smartphone, taking up space on the device and destined to be dumped down the line. … Read more
