Capcom Continues Their Quest for More Money

| August 2, 2011

We’ve joked about how Capcom is determined to squeeze every last possible dollar out of their many Anti-Zombie games and franchises before here at the ZRC, but there’s more than a bit of seriousness behind the jest. The fact is, some Resident Evil games have seen a half-dozen releases to date – and the trend [...]

New Suda51 Title Appears to be Anti-Zombie Gorefest

Videogame auteur Goichi Suda, widely known as Suda51, has become famous for making edgy, bizarre, sardonic titles aimed at adult gamers and is best known for the ‘No More Heroes franchise.

Another Uninformed Take on Zombie Media History? Why Not!

| July 27, 2011

Reading pop journalism stuff like this sometimes has me reaching for the Cuervo before noon, but I must resist.. I must! London – Hollywood’s current love affair with zombies is a weak echo of the decades-long romance between videogames and the living dead. In any fantasy game, zombies haul themselves up out of the soil [...]

Square-Enix Teams Up with Known Living Supremacists to Flog ‘Dead Island’ at Comic-Con

| July 20, 2011

We talked with some concern here on the ZRC blog about how Square Enix had picked up distribution duties on the odious Living Supremacist game ‘Dead Island’ to help ensure it receives wider release here in the US. Well, their commitment to hating the Differently Animated doesn’t just extend to shuffling plastic around, as it [...]

New ‘Silent Hill’ Promises to be Unfair to the Differently Animated, Also Your Ears

| June 20, 2011

‘Silent Hill’ games don’t get quite as much press here on the ZRC blog, as their ‘antagonists’ often fall more in the ‘insane human’ or ‘demon’ categories rather than the Differently Animated, and also because, quite frankly, it’s hard to tell what’s going on half the blasted time. Still, they’ve had a noteworthy impact and [...]

Heinously Offensive Trailer for New ‘Dead Rising 2′ Remake

| June 17, 2011

Capcom has a long and, ahem, proud history of selling slight variations or even full remakes of the same blasted Anti-Zombie games to their customers. For example, ‘Resident Evil’ was remade numerous times; as a director’s cut, as a complete remake for the Gamecube, itself later ported to the Wii, and ports with varying amounts [...]

‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ Trailer Fails to Provide the Biggest Revelation: Why We Should Care

| June 16, 2011

‘Resident Evil’ has been around for a long time now, and for some reason the series continues to sell very well year after year, despite having characters with all the depth of a birdbath and all the appeal of a rancid ham sandwich.
