The zombie apocalypse is coming. It’s no secret, the signs are everywhere, it’s really just a matter of time. The only thing you can do is be prepared, and while your chances of survival ultimately depend on you, I’m doing everything I can to help prepare you for it. When the dead rise because there’s no room left in hell or after a greedy corporation synthesizes a virus that reanimates corpses, there’s a very small window of time for you to come up with a plan. You’ll need water, food, weapons, and much more if you’re to survive. Thanks to an incredibly cool Google Map, we now have a tool that tells us all that and so much more. Head past the break for more. READ MORE
Ever since developer Double Fine Productions used Kickstarter to fund their next game and received over $3 million in donations, several game studios have jumped on board to see if they could get similar support for their projects. Wasteland 2 is another game that’s received an insane level of support, having recently passed $2 million in donations from the very charitable gaming community. Until now, there hadn’t been a single horror game among the ever-growing catalogue of video game projects on Kickstarter. Now we have The Dead Linger, a zombie mmo in development at Park City, UT based Sandswept Studios. Read on for a video and more info. READ MORE
If you watched Dawn of the Dead and thought to yourself how much better you could’ve handled the situation, here’s your chance to prove it. All you need is to be in or near Reading, Berkshire (that’s located across the pond for all of us in The States). You’ll also need to have £119 ($190) handy and be ready to open a family-sized can of zombie whoopassery. Dubbed ‘The Mall’, this event takes the increasingly popular trend of throwing real people into post-apocalyptic situations that you wouldn’t expect to find outside of a major Hollywood profuction.

Back in August I decided I definitely don’t have what it takes to survive a 5k run, much less one where I’m being chased by the hungry undead. This event sounds similar to Run for Your Lives, only there’s less running and more exploring. In other words, I’m totally in. Too bad it hasn’t made its way to the States yet. But if you currently reside in Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, or Sheffield, you should definitely check this out.
2.8 Hours Later is a game where you and a bunch of other zombie enthusiasts gather together so you can find your way across a zombie wasteland. You’ll start off with nothing but a map and the will to live, but if surviving isn’t enough motivation for you, perhaps the zombie disco that’s held afterward is. If you live across the pond and are looking for something to do, head on over to their website for more information, and if you really want to go prepared, I suggest you bring one of these. READ MORE
Rock On!! (2008) actor Luke Kenny’s directorial venture, titled Zombie?, has run into trouble since another production company claims that they have already registered the same title. Producer Siddhartha Jain of iRock Media, who is producing director Navdeep Singh’s Rock The Shaadi, another zombie flick, insists he won’t allow Kenny’s film to release without his permission, says Hindustan Times. I guess they never heard of Lucio Fulci’s 1979 film of the same name, too.
In other news, Kenny says he has planned two sequels even before the release of the movie. “I am confident about the story. It is a story which has to be said in three parts. It has all the potential of a trilogy,” Luke told reporters at the launch of his film in India.
He assures that the film will neither be a Zombie comedy nor a Zombie survival series, rather it will be the journey of transformation and origin of Zombie genre.
“The film is a Zombie origin film. Indian audience will empathise with the journey of a human being as he is faced with a seemingly insurmountable predicament,” said the actor-director who plays a photographer in the movie.
I sat here for a good few hours thinking about exactly what to write about this week’s installment of “The Walking Dead”, constantly drawing a blank. It took me awhile to realize that my reasons for this were because that is how I reflected upon the episode. Completely blank. This was the first episode written by the new team, and unfortunately, it was largely a transition episode with very little substance and a lot of redundant feelings being tossed around.
This episode starts with a flashback paralleling Carl’s shooting with the shot that landed Rick in the hospital that he awakens from in episode 1. We are brought to a time when zombies didn’t run the earth, and marital problems were among the chief of the Grimes family concerns. While Lori’s side of the shooting certainly provided a previously unseen narrative, nothing was learned that we didn’t already know. The Grimes family is made up of good people who are plagued by a sea of ugly circumstance. READ MORE

Giving a nod to the Sin City setting, we’ve just landed a hi-res look t a killer one sheet that’s one card away from landing a solid Ace-high full house. This town will eat you alive… READ MORE

If you think you possess the strength, the willpower, the ironclad thighs that are required to run from zombies in a 5 kilometer obstacle course, then all I can say is bravo, for you are a far stronger person than I. I suppose it’s good practice for when the zombie apocalypse inevitably happens, but really, I’d much rather think i’m capable of surviving a zombie apocalypse rather than take a stab at this course and realize I don’t stand a fucking chance. Check it out and decide for yourself.
This sort of reminds me of a far more grueling haunted house. You know, like one of those haunted attractions that actually makes you do stuff? I went to one a few years back that had me climbing winding staircases and running through a pitch black maze before I was shat out on some three story slide. That was terrifying, and this reminds me of it. Head past the break to see where this thing is and what you can expect should you decide this is something you’d like to check out. READ MORE
Welcome one and all to a brand new series here on Dead Pixels, home of all things geeky and videogame-y. TJ and I have been slaving over our hot computers to bring you what we affectionately refer to as the Duel to the Death. In this new series we’ll take popular characters, monsters, bosses and everything in-between and pit them against each other so we can watch the giblets fly. All you have to do is watch the fight, root for who you want to win, and if your side loses you can vent your rage in the comments. Easy, right?
In this issue it’s all about the zombies. But we’re not just talking about the classic, shambling undead made popular in Resident Evil – we’re expanding this duel to a few more contenders as well. Also in this match are the agile, “rage” zombies like what’s found in Left 4 Dead, the sort-of-but-not-really zombies from the last two Resident Evils, and the possessed townsfolk from Alan Wake and Deadly Premonition. Now, this isn’t a “who would win if we put one of each in an arena and watch them fight?” sort of scenario, this is more about which poses the biggest threat to humanity. So who wins? Let’s find out.READ MORE
In Italy, it was considered the `unofficial sequel’ to Dawn of the Dead In England, it was known as Zombie Flesh Eaters and banned as obscene. In America, it was called Zombie and advertised with the depraved tag line “We are going to eat you!”

This is without a doubt my new favorite thing to watch because it has everything I look for in my online entertainment: comedy, sex, gore and video games (and not necessarily in that order). If you think you can stomach so much bile-seasoned awesomesauce in a 3 minute package, check out the first episode in the destined to be great machinima series Hearts & Brains below.
I hope you like Kesha but I really don’t care because you’re a hooker. That’s just full of win. If anything this video is proof there’s fun to be had even when the zombie apocalypse inevitably arrives and the only hookers left are the drooling undead. READ MORE
