Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Exo Zombies Brings Super-Powered Zombie Scaremongering?

| February 12, 2015

Zombies can be superheroes too. This much seems obvious to the ZRC as a matter of fairness, but also as a matter of, say, comic book history. Recently, Marvel Zombies turned that a bit on its head and tragically took the position that if a superhero becomes a Zombie they will (with few exceptions) also [...]

Random Anti-Zombie Prejudice: Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea Part II

| June 6, 2014

Here at the ZRC, we like to take occasional breaks from reviewing Anti-Zombie media. As previously mentioned, we’ve been steady players of the Bioshock series for a few years now (despite the potential Zombie-adjacent nature of some of its ‘Splicer’ adversaries), but the latest full-length game in the series seemed to move firmly away from [...]

Zombie Learning Satirized? We Do Not Approve.

| January 9, 2014

It is a well-known fact among Zombie Rights Activists, though not in the general population, that Zombies of all stripes are generally capable of learning, even if they are (temporarily, we hope) impaired by the death-Undeath transition. It has been a staple of George Romero’s work for decades; John Russo agreed, in Return of the [...]

‘ROAM’: Procedurally-Generated Anti-Zombie Game on Kickstarter

| February 9, 2013

Procedurally-generated games promise nearly infinite replayability, as they can generate levels in which to spend your recreational hours over and over again. In theory, a great deal of bang for the buck, and always a new possibility each time you fire up said game. But what if the variable virtual world is static in its [...]

Kid-Oriented Anti-Zombie ‘Cure’ Propaganda?

| February 9, 2013

We’re sensitive to the issue of a ‘cure’ for Undeath here at the Zombie Rights Campaign. Zombiism isn’t a disease, after all, and the Zombie Community as a whole doesn’t need a ‘cure’, it needs understanding and tolerance. So naturally, this ‘Zombie I Scream’ game pushing the cure meme at a young audience disturbs us: [...]

Update: ‘Dead Island’ Riptide Edition Has Incredibly Tasteless UK Version

| January 16, 2013

I really shouldn’t have fallen for the Zombie hula girl figurine so easily. ‘Dead Island’, as recounted recently here on the blog, has a new ‘Riptide’ edition coming out soon, and as is common with special editions of games, it has various nifty (to their minds) gimmicky objects to encourage purchasers. In the US, you [...]

Fancy New Dead Island Edition Can’t Hide Anti-Zombie Prejudice

| January 14, 2013

So there’s a new version of ‘Dead Island’ coming out and boy does it have a lot of tchotchkes that come with it: Let’s be honest a zombie hula girl is enough to sell anyone on this even if it wasn’t just one of the more fun zombie games out there. If not the severed [...]

OreZom Trails

| October 16, 2012

When I was a small child so long ago, far back in the mists of time, we had computers in our elementary school classrooms, and those computers had games. The game I remember most, as is true of many of my generation, was the famous ‘Oregon Trail’. In that game you play as the leader [...]

No End to ‘Walking Dead’ Merch

| October 11, 2012

You’ve probably seen those ultra-cheap Jakks Pacific games in the toy aisles at your local big box store, the sort that plug into a TV using old-fashioned RCA cables (red, yellow, white) for a quick gaming experience sans the usual console. Usually they’re compilations of old 8-bit games, and often they come with a specialized [...]

*Another* RE Movie, This Time from Japan: ‘Resident Evil: Damnation’

| September 24, 2012

I think this qualifies as overexposure: Biohazard: Damnation is currently slated for a September 25 release in North America, between the September 14 opening of the live-action film Resident Evil: Retribution and the October launch of the Resident Evil 6 game. In all honesty this trailer does make the CG movie look about a thousand [...]
