The Walking Dead Game Season 2 Reveal This Tuesday!

Many gamers were enthralled last year when Telltale games unleashed their emotional episodic Walking Dead game on the masses. We were all caught up with the weight of our decisions affecting the lives of fellow survivors and who didn't worry a little bit about protecting Clementine from the undead hordes when they went to sleep at night? Telltale teased us a bit with their '400 Days' expansion a few months back, but now it's time to reveal the new season!

Gaming: Bioshock's Fan Made Movie "The Brother's Rapture"

If you're a gamer, no doubt you've at least heard of the absolutely kickass game "Bioshock" from 2K Games and its underwater, fallen utopia of madness, Rapture. You might even be playing the 3rd release in the series, Bioshock Infinite, right now (Well, not right NOW. Right now you're reading my blog, and quite frankly, that's more important than most anything.) Bioshock remains in most gamer's favorite games list because of its creepy, disturbing atmosphere and subject matter, highly interactive environment, engaging characters and replayability value. Don't be ashamed to admit you jumped the first time a Splicer came screaming out of the dark - or perhaps you needed some new underwear after your first experience with a Big Daddy. I think we all did.

Some fans can't get enough of Rapture, and the game only tells part of the tragic story. Before the underwater city of Rapture collapsed beneath itself and Splicers roamed its flooded halls, men and women thrived as they explored beyond the limits of their creative and scientific achievements. But who were they before their society crumbled around them? What was life like BEFORE the fall of Rapture? What went so wrong for its enlightened citizens? Was Rapture the paradise they had set out to create? Or Hell itself? Thanks to the imagination of some great fans, we get to glimpse at life as it may have been for a pair of new citizens, where opportunity & pursuits of happiness had no limits. Or so it seemed.

Game Trailers: James Gunn makes the James Gunn-iest video game of all time

I will make three predictions about this game. 1: Lloyd Kaufman makes a cameo. 2: A poop geyser will somehow be involved. 3: I will play it.

Gameplay Footage of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record

Yes, your Ghoul of Gaming has another tidbit for you! If you played Dead Rising 2, you'll know it's a nifty zombie survival game; a completely open world full of different choices and endings. While I didn't think it was as good as the first one, I did enjoy it. Hell, how can you NOT enjoy making custom weapons like the Broom Katana, Bucket 'O Drills, Beer Hat, & the Super BFG, to name a few. The mass slaughtering of literally THOUSANDS of zombies is so satisfying, and never gets old. Hell, that could be the entire game, and I would be perfectly content with it.

Freddy Krueger announced as a downloadable fighter in Mortal Kombat!

Yes, I'm back with another hybrid of horror and nerd-ism! And this one made me cream my jeans!

If you're like me, and had been putting off buying the latest Mortal Kombat, you may want to go get your wallet: Freddy Krueger has been announced a downloadable fighter - and he has some of the best fatalities I've seen. This is awesome. Rumor has it, that if enough sales are generated from this, they'll look into adding more playable horror characters.

Hail to the King, baby! Duke Nukem Forever is here!

So many things can attain legendary status without there ever being proof of its existence: The Lock Ness Monster. Bigfoot. Chupacabra. Sarah Palin's intelligence. And Duke Nukem Forever.

The original Duke Nukem was released in 1991 as a simple side scroller, but it wasn't until the 1996 release, that our smart ass, wise cracking, womanizing anti-hero took the world by storm. The unique weapons, aliens, and, ahem, adult subject matter instantly became a classic, and a sequel, Duke Nukem Forever was promised..... in 1997.

Bite Me - The Gamer's Zombie Apocalypse Series

I've been a gamer almost all my life. I had an Atari 2600 joystick in my hand from the time I learn to sit up, and I've burned through every gaming platform since. Yes, dear internet - my name is Erin, and I'm a nerd.

And like all nerds, I've dreamed that skills I've acquired blasting baddies, head-shotting noobs, and dominating pixels would some day be humanity's only hope for survival...and then I wake up and go back to filling out TPS reports like the corporate monkey I am.

Stay Alive (REVIEW)

The failsafe horror formula in the first half of this new century seems to be summed up by the following formula: “There's a [mundane object] that's haunted, and when you [interact with] it, it kills you. There's a videotape that's haunted, and if you watch it, it kills you. There's a house that's haunted, and if you go inside, it kills you. There's a cellphone that's haunted, and if you answer it, it kills you. There's a tie tac that's haunted, and if you wear it, it kills you. There's a bed that's haunted and when you sleep on the bed, it eats you. You know how it goes.

Remember all the joy and fun you had as a kid playing "Oregon Trail"? Or if you're not old I should probably ask if you even remember Oregon Trail at all.

A revamped version of the Apple classic that features what every game needs, zombies. Load up your station wagon, gather supplies and head off on a cross country adventure. The best part?
